The Drake women will play national power Tennessee in the opening round of the NCAA tournament Sunday night in Pittsburgh. The Bulldogs advanced after winning the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament as a number eight seed.
Drake coach Amy Stephens calls it a "great blessing" and "great opportunity" for the team and the program. Stephens will match wits with legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, and says she’s exited about the opportunity.
Drake’s Kelsey Keizer talks about the challenge of playing Tennessee. She says if they’re going to the tournament then they might as well go big and play a team with great tradition.
Iowa State earned an at-large bid and the Cyclones play Washington Saturday in Minneapolis.
