The Final Four...plus one more

Most historians would agree that the 1996 season was one of the most competitive in women’s basketball annals, with traditional powerhouses Georgia, Connecticut, Louisiana Tech, Stanford and Tennessee all fielding excellent teams which could stake legitimate claims as the nation’s top squad. When the NCAA Tournament field was announced, the Lady Bulldogs and Lady Techsters – the only two teams to be ranked No. 1 during the regular season – found themselves bracketed together in the Midwest Regional. La. Tech topped pre-season No. 1 Connecticut in the State Farm Tip-off Classic and occupied the top spot from Nov. 21-Jan. 22. After the Techsters suffered their only loss of the regular season, the Lady Bulldogs, who had just defeated No. 4 Tennessee, No. 24 Auburn, No. 3 Connecticut, No. 10 Penn State and No. 20 Florida in succession, moved into the top spot for three weeks before losing at Vanderbilt. La. Tech then remained No. 1 for the remainder of the regular season. In a matchup well worthy of its billing, the Lady Dogs rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit en route to a 90-76 victory. Saudia Roundtree, who received Naismith National Player of the Year honors a day earlier, cemented her status as such with a career-high 37 points in the Regional final. Tracy Henderson and La’Keshia Frett both posted “double-double” performances. 2009-10 Lad y Bulldo G Basketball

“It seems like all season, no matter what we did, people have considered us as the underdog,” Roundtree said. No. 5-ranked Georgia topped Stanford in the NCAA semifinals to improve to 4-0 against the four teams ahead of the Lady Dogs in the polls, but then lost in the national title tilt.
