The LSU Women's Basketball team hopes to defend their NCAA Championship Title and they are now marching into the Sweet 16.

With plenty of controversy surrounding their head coach, Kim Mulkey, the Lady Tigers seem to be hitting their stride at the right time in the tournament.

And if you haven't heard, the controversy stems from an article that may be published by the Washington Post. Mulkey says if the paper publishes false information about her she will sue them, and has already hired a legal team to represent her.

Back to the NCAA tourney, LSU won convincingly over Middle Tennesse St and now they move on to the Sweet 16 Round, and they will be taking on UCLA this Saturday, March 30th.

The UCLA Bruins are ranked 2nd in the bracket, while LSU comes in as the number 3 team. The matchup should be a great one, and if you're a fan of women's basketball this is the type of game you hope for in the NCAA Tournament.

The game on Saturday will be played in Albany, N.Y.
