LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Having a "cavalier attitude" generally means to be careless or dismissive. That's not the case for the Western Tech women's basketball team. These Cavaliers are working hard to re-define the term.
Western TC spent the week getting set for the NJCAA Region 13a Tournament this weekend. The Lady Cavaliers got there by wrapping up a 17-9 regular season with wins against Riverland and an overtime thriller over 3rd-ranked Anoka-Ramsey.
Western just happens to play Anoka-Ramsey in the opening round. After a season-split with Anoka, the Cavs know what to expect in the rubbermatch.
Cavaliers guard Jenna McDonough said, "I think they're going to come out really hard. I don't think they played their 'A' game last Saturday. I think we played really hard. I think they're going to come out strong. We need to be ready. We've been working for how long to make it to regions, and I think we can do it. I think we can win on Saturday."
"Oh, they're going to bring it," said guard/forward Amber Patterman. "They're probably going to bring everything they have. I know their coach was really upset with them. I don't know why. They played a great game, but I expect them to bring it twice as much as they did the first time."
Western will play at Anoka-Ramsey on Saturday, March 2nd at 6:00 p.m.
