Onto the Second Round

Bring on Indiana. The women's basketball team has advanced to the second round of the WNIT.

The Flyer women took care of business in the Women's NIT, beating Oakland University on its home floor 70-55. The win is the first-ever post-season tournament victory for the team since moving to Division I.

The Flyers will face the University of Indiana in Bloomington 2 p.m. Sunday, March 22. If they can get past Indiana, they'll face either Syracuse or Bowling Green, possibly in a home game at UD Arena.

Kristen Daugherty led all scorers with 19 points. Freshman Justine Raterman,, A-10 Rookie of the Year, picked up her ninth career double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
