PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It has already been an outstanding season for the St. Joe’s women’s basketball team, but they have a chance to take it to another level on Saturday. That’s when they will take on Fordham up in Brooklyn, New York, in the finals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament. Of course, the winner gets an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
“It’s really exciting,’ St. Joe’s head coach Cindy Griffin tells KYW Newsradio. “Our kids have worked really, really hard. We’ve had a great non-conference schedule challenge them and get them prepared for the Atlantic 10 Conference. To be able to win two in a row this weekend against two NCAA (Tournament) teams, in my opinion, was fantastic. Then capping it off against #11 Dayton yesterday was just unbelievable.”
