"It's a ton of excitement. I mean going to the boys tournament last year and seeing them host regionals and seeing every seat absolutely filled, it was an incredible environment and I think all of us girls were really hoping for the first seed. Conference didn't go the way we wanted to but this is our ultimate last chance this year and for us seniors our last chance ever. I think it kind of woke us up in a sense, not that we weren't ready for conference. It didn't go our way, now more than ever we know what we have to do now," said Lady Panthers guard Bethanie Funderburk.
