The Penn women's basketball team (22-6, 12-2 Ivy) will be making its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament in a decade, following this year's Ivy League championship. Senior Courtney Wilson and freshman Sydney Stipanovich are writing a daily diary for the Daily News throughout the team's run in the tournament.
Yesterday afternoon after practice at the Palestra, our team made its way to the bus. We were about to leave for Maryland, but before we boarded, we were greeted by an energetic crowd. The band was playing, cheerleaders were cheering, and friends and faculty were there as well. It was the perfect send-off to get us pumped for our road trip. Need not forget, as we pulled away our mascot, the Quaker, ran along-side the bus for a final cheer.
