LSU looks to extend its storybook run at the women’s NCAA tournament tonight in Spokane against Cal. The story may seem more like a sequel to the Lady Tigers, who advanced to the Final Four the last time they played in the regionals in Washington State. As a No. 4 seed in 2004, LSU survived the first two rounds in Baton Rouge before cutting down the nets in Seattle. This year, as a No. 6 seed, LSU was left standing in Baton Rouge before heading to Spokane. Time will tell if they can write another happy ending.
