EVANSTON, Ill. (CBS) — The Northwestern Wildcats women’s lacrosse team is hoping the third time is the charm, as they had to Baltimore for their third straight trip to the Final Four.
The fourth-seeded Wildcats haven’t won it all since 2012.
The first step in hopes of changing that is beating top-seed North Carolina on Friday.
“It’s always a motivator. You carry it with you. It hurts, and it’s hard, and it’s never easy to lose. But on a big stage, it’s even harder – and it drives you with everything that you do,” said Head Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller, “and so I think this group has the experience, I think they have the readiness, and they’re excited for the opportunity.”
The game against North Carolina begins at 2 p.m. Friday.
