Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The LSU Lady Tiger basketball team is Sweet 16 bound.
Coach Nikki Caldwell and the gang are headed to Spokane, Washington after upsetting Penn State last night in the PMAC.
With only seven players available, the Lady Tigers used a second-half rally to advance in the NCAA tournament, winning 71- 66.
"When you think about this team and what they did without one of our leaders, it was just a courageous effort on these seven young ladies part,” stated Caldwell. “They came away with a great win.”
LSU will take on the California Bears on Saturday. The winner of that game will head to the quarter-finals.
