Lady Lions Earn No. 3 Seed In NCAA Tournament

Penn State’s name obviously wasn’t called during Selection Sunday for the Big Dance, but it was called on Selection Monday for the Women’s 2014 NCAA Tournament.

The Lady Lions (22-7, 13-3 Big Ten) received a three-seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament after suffering a 99-82 upset loss in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament to Ohio State (17-18, 5-11 Big Ten). The Lions will play 14th-seeded Wichita State (25-6, 14-4 MVC) in the first round of the tournament this Sunday, March 23, at 12:30 p.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The Bryce Jordan Center will play host to the first two rounds of the tournament. If the Lady Lions advance to the second round, they’ll face the winner of the No. 6 Dayton vs. No. 11 Florida game, which will follow Penn State’s game against Wichita State. The second round game will be played on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

This is Penn State’s fourth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance and its 25th in program history. Penn State is one of 10 teams to earn 25 or more NCAA tournament berths. The Lady Lions are 30-24 all-time in the NCAA tournament.

The game will be aired on ESPN 2. For fans that will be rooting for the Lady Lions at the BJC, the first 100 students to arrive on Sunday will receive a free ticket courtesy of the Lady Lion Cager Club.
