The winner of Wisconsin and LIU will see Colgate on Saturday in the quarterfinals at the same location: The Class of 1965 Arena in Hamilton, New York.
Ahead of the matchup, captain Britta Curl issued a vote of confidence for her team, despite the youth.
“It’s not any different this weekend. We’ve played in big games before, we’ve played in front of crowds and a lot on the line. So I think that’s good experience for us to go into this weekend,” Curl said.
Tonight’s game is at 5 PM CT and can be seen on ESPN+ and listened to on 1310 WIBA.
