Tigers Close Fast, Beat West Virginia in NCAA’s

California v LSUA spunky LSU team, led by Danielle Ballard close in a rush.

7th seeded LSU went on a 20-4 run to end the game as the Tigers rallied to beat 2nd seeded West Virginia Tuesday night in Baton Rouge. LSU’s win in the second round of the NCAA tournament sends the Tigers to Louisville Sunday to play the hosts and 3rd seeded Cardinals.

Ballard scored 22 points, and grabbed 15 rebounds, both game highs. LSU won despite an injury to guard Jeanne Kenney and foul trouble for star post Theresa Plaisance.

Ballard left the game late in the first half to be checked for a possible concussion and did not return.

“We felt we gave one away,” said West Virginia’s coach Mike Carey. The Tigers will take it.
