Kudos to Kayla McBride of Notre Dame. Again! Erie’s Kayla McBride, a Villa Maria Academy standout,  had 16 points in defeating Maryland with a score of 80-49 last night in the Raleigh Regional final. She sank two 3-pointers in perfect style.

Notre Dame meets University of Connecticut on Sunday night in Denver. This will be the fourth time the two teams have played this season with ND taking three out of the four contests. Read the full goerie.com story from Associated Press.

Notre Dame lost last year in the finals of the Final Four, but McBride did not play in that game.  The other NCAA Women’s semifinal includes Baylor (with 6-foot, 8-inch Brittney Griner) against Stanford. She dunks.

Womens basketball will pull in big TV ratings this weekend.

If you hear the name Hansen pretty much anywhere in Erie County, chances are you’ll hear a story about a great athlete. Sarah Hansen, a General McLane grad, is taking her terrific high school hoops career to the next level as a Florida Gulf Coast Eagle.

The redshirt sophomore forward is making a mark as the team hits the floor for its first NCAA Division I tournament appearance. Read the entire Erie Times-News article about Sarah here.

This afternoon at 2:30 (check your local listings), the Eagles (29-2) will play St. Bonaventure (29-3), another team making its first NCAA appearance.

The 5-foot 11-inch Hansen leads the Eagles in scoring at 14.3 points per game and rebounding at 6.1 rebounds per game. She also has a 3.95 GPA and a chemistry major.

You’ve heard her sister’s name. Tori Hansen, the 2011 Times-News Female Athlete of the Year, set records at Division II West Liberty State and now has a professional career in Australia.

This should be an exciting game as the Eagles have some incredible shooters from 3-point range. ESPN 2 and ESPN 3 televise the NCAA women’s tournament which also includes Notre Dame and Erie’s Kayla McBride playing at 2 p.m.

Congrats to all the Erie women making Erie proud.
