Cowgirls Basketball to travel to South Dakota for WBI Semis

After a semifinals exit in the Southland Tournament, most thought that the McNeese Women's Basketball Team's 2013 run was over.

But after getting a call from the women's basketball invitational, the rest was history.

It was obvious the WBI officials expected an early exit for the Cowgirls, seeding them eighth but they quickly swatted that notion, defeating number one seeded Mercer on Thursday.

Then Saturday, against four seed Elon, they did the same thing, defeating the Phoenix by eight.

Now, they are one game away from the WBI finals.

The Cowgirls will now travel to South Dakota to face the Coyotes.

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. Thursday.
