Women's Basketball Wins Playoff Game; Will Host Final Four This Weekend

Casey Remolde is primarily known for her defensive prowess. Yet, the reigning Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Defensive Athlete of the Year turned it on offensively when her team needed it most Wednesday night. Remolde dropped a KU postseason record with 38 points, leading Kutztown to a 62-49 victory against Lock Haven in a PSAC quarterfinal round game at Keystone Arena. The Golden Bears improved to 26-5 overall and advanced to the semifinal round, where it will take on the West Division's second seed, Gannon (22-6), 3:30 p.m Saturday, March 5, Keystone Arena.
