Dancing in Starkville: Syracuse women draw No. 8 seed, set to meet Oklahoma State
For the sixth consecutive year, the Syracuse University women's basketball team is headed to the Big Dance.
The team held a watch party from the Iocolano-Petty Football Complex on Monday night, erupting when the Orange heard their name called on ESPN's national television broadcast.
Syracuse earned the No. 8 seed and will meet 9-seed Oklahoma State in the first round from Starkville, Mississippi.
If the Orange can defeat the Cowgirls, they will have a chance for a rematch with top-seeded Mississippi State in the second round.
The Bulldogs defeated the Orange in December, 76-65, in the 'Duel in the Desert' from Las Vegas.
Syracuse and Oklahoma State will meet on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
