Hurricanes Are in the Final Four!... of the WNIT!
|via Canes Sports|
The lady Canes have never won more than one postseason game in school history, but now they're on a four-game streak. Yeah, it might be the second-tier tourney, but it means something to the players and could spell good things for the future.
Coach Katie Meier, in her fourth year, is finally playing with a team she fully recruited. She hopes the run in the WNIT will help the rising team should it make it to the NCAA tournament next year.
"We need them in a position to take the game-winning shot or being in the situation where we need a huge defensive stop. If you make the NCAAs, you get so excited. But if you're not ready, you celebrate that you're in, you make it and lose [in the first round], and you're done. This is helping us with a blueprint for next season," she tells the Sun-Sentinel.
Tonight at 7 they'll take on Michigan. You can hear the game locally on student-run radio station WVUM 90.5 FM.
