The perfect 31-0 Lady Jackets from HPU advanced the Final Four last weekend. Cory alerted me to the fact and Kalie Lowrie sent me a schedule of the upcoming games as well as a link to listen via the internet. I appreciate the info. Apparently the HPU women are the only undefeated basketball team in the college ranks. That’s quite a feat.
Here’s all you need to know to follow the Lady Jackets. Is anyone going to the games? Maybe someone else is looking for a carpool.
