Cmu Women Face Another Tough Test


Batko, Brian, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


The Carnegie Mellon women's basketball team could've been happy just making the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1991.

That's exactly who we wanted to play at this point in the tournament," said fifth-year coach Jacquie Hullah, who noted the Tartans had an 11-point lead entering the fourth quarter of their most recent game against the Bears. "Our kids are confident, we're excited and we think it's going to be a great game."

Getting the ball to the 6-foot-1 Murphy, who became the leading scorer in school history Saturday (1,602 career points) - "I was glad that it happened during all this because it didn't have to be a big deal, and we could focus on the Sweet 16 and less on that," she said, with a laugh - will be crucial this time against Washington. …
