The Lady Govs should be considered the most dangerous team in the 2011 OVC Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament.

They are the reigning OVC Tournament Champions. They have won the title two years in a row.

The first time they were a fifth seed and last year they were the third seed.

Both times, they had to defeat No. 1 Eastern Illinois in the finals.

This year’s team has 10 players from last year’s championship team. Of those 10 players, six were on both championship teams.

As a fifth seed this year, the Lady Govs will have to defeat three teams to earn their third title in a row.

First, they must defeat No. 8 Murray state at noon, Wednesday, March 2.

They would then have to go on to face No. 4 Eastern Illinois at noon, Thursday, March 3.

Afterwards, they would have to defeat No. 1 Tennessee Tech, noon, Friday, March 4, for a chance at the title again at 3 p.m., Saturday, March 5. TAS
