(WAGM) - The University of Maine women's basketball team left for Austin, Texas earlier today. The players load the bus for a lot of road trips during the season, but this one is different because they are gearing up for the NCAA Tournament.
"A little different a little more important a little more fun. It is not everyday you get to go to the NCAA tournament so it is going to be a fun trip," said Parise Rossignol.
The Bears have arrived and are taking on the Univeristy of Texas in Austin. Maine will hold a practice at the arena Friday and will then take on the Longhorns on Saturday night at 6:00.
