The University of Tulsa women make the Women's NCAA Tournament field for the second time in school history by winning the Conference USA Championship on Saturday at the BOK Center on Saturday. The will be the 16th-seed in the Spokane Regional and will face top-seeded Stanford."We were so surprised that our name came up first. It was kind of a shock, you see Stanford and then Tulsa. It's almost like you don't know how to react," said Tulsa Head Coach Matilda Mossman. "While we were hoping for a 15-seed, we were expecting a 16-seed, so it's not a surprise. Going to Palo Alto for the NCAA Tournament is a reward for our players for everything that they've worked for all year long. We've spent a lot of time in the gym, a lot of time in the weight room, and a lot of time in the training room, so we're going to enjoy this experience. We're going to go out, have a great work ethic, we're going to compete and play hard, but at the same time we're going to enjoy this reward that we've earned for our efforts this year.The Golden Hurricane will face the Cardinal Sunday at 4:40pm.
