SPRINGFIELD, Mo--If Drury can win Tuesday night they'll advance to the Elite Eight in Evansville, IN.

The Lady Panthers have already punched their ticket to the Elite Eight.

The NCAA Division 2 women will crown their national champion in Erie, Pennsylvania. 

Steve Huber's Lady Panthers beat Wayne State Monday by 36 points 99-63.

It's safe to say that this Drury team is peaking at the right time.

It's the Lady Panthers third trip to the Elite Eight, and they're still looking for a national championship.

Next Tuesday, they'll face top ranked and undefeated Bentley.   

"I didn't expect this at all," said Lady Panther Annie Armstrong.  "Coming in I knew we worked really hard on the off season and set really high goals. Now to be here actually accomplishing them is just unbelievable."

"We are excited about going to Pennsylvania," said Drury coach Steve Huber.  "Some people may say we got the bad draw, I don't know about that. I know there will be a game plan in place and I know these kids are ready to practice their tail ends off. They will do what every I say. We will go out there and represent Drury."
