Penn State's Maggie Lucas catches her Lady Lions teammates having some fun -- and sneaking a few snacks -- during their "off" day in the NCAA tournament.
It’s tournament time! I always love this time of the year because it is March Madness. Even with severe bites from the injury bug this season, Maryland still received a No. 4 seed in the tournament.
If you ever wondered how a person goes from playground to reality show stardom (using that term loosely), it goes a little like this: I was playing basketball with a friend at about 4:30 one Monday afternoon when I got a call on my cell.

I can't believe I am about to start play in my final NCAA tournament! My time at Notre Dame has passed so quickly. Last week I went to pick up my cap and gown and will graduate in May but I still have so much to accomplish before I walk across the stage.
Wow, the past few weeks have been such a whirlwind for Duke women’s basketball! We finished up the conference season winning the ACC tournament. We beat three quality opponents in N.C. State, Florida State and, in the championship game, North Carolina.
