Lady Panthers Face Unbeaten Bentley

The Drury Lady Panthers will face 32-0 Bentley in the Elite Eight next week.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The 27-3 Drury Lady Panthers have a tough draw as well.

At least on paper.

The Drury women are making only their third trip to an Elite Eight and will take on Bentley.

The Bentley Falcons are unbeaten and ranked number one in the country.

The team from Massachusetts is 32-0 and features five seniors and two grad students.

Their coach has won 900 games, but Drury coach Steve Huber says his team has an edge.

And he can't wait to hit the floor in Erie, Pennsylvania next Tuesday.

"They're a very, very good team and deserving of being number one," said Lady Panthers coach Steve Huber.  "What I like about us is that I think we've hit our stride.  I think we're playing our best basketball.  I think the advantage that we have is that we've learned to play grind it out games.  I don't know if they've ever been in a grind it out game.."
