The three-time defending Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament Champion Prairie View A&M women’s basketball team will head to Waco to play Baylor at 6:40 p.m. on Sunday, March 24 in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament Oklahoma City Regional.
Prairie View A&M earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament as the No. 16 seed in its regional. The Lady Panthers will play No. 1 seeded Baylor at the Ferrell Center for the second time in three years in the NCAA Tournament.
They will turn to SWAC Player of the year Latia Williams, who will make her fourth NCAA Tournament appearance with Sunday’s game, and SWAC Tournament MVP Kiara Etienne to provide perimeter and midrange threats to keep Brittney Griner and the Bears honest.
Prairie View A&M hosted its NCAA Tournament Selection Show watch party at the Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar in Cypress, Texas. After the seedings were announced Prairie View A&M coach Toyelle Wilson said her players were excited to prove what they can do against a talent like Griner and the Baylor Bears.
