PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – While everyone is following the La Salle Explorers magical run in the NCAA Tournament, it should be noted that they aren’t the only Big 5 squad making postseason noise.
The Penn women’s basketball team has advanced to the semifinals of the Women’s Basketball Invitational and on Wednesday night they will visit the Detroit Titans, with a berth in the final on the line.
“It’s a tremendous amount of fun,” Penn head coach Mike McLaughlin tells KYW Newsradio. “The players are just ecstatic to continue to play. We’ve played well down the stretch, we improved from day one to now. We have a lot of momentum right now and we’re going to try and ride it as far as we can.”
