With another match coming this time against Stanford, this next time on the court brings mixed emotions for seniors Tori Dixon and Ashley Wittman. Coach Hugh McCutcheon talks about seeing the two seniors holding in their emotions of this possibly being their last match and using it to their advantage. 

Tori said the team is very excited about going into the "Sweet 16" and are hoping to get a win, obviously. Ashley said the tournament is about how the team competes, not necessarily about what Stanford can do, and how they are going to battle against Stanford. 

Both the seniors explain how their friendship has grown throughout their college career and has only made them better players. The two have been playing with one another for about ten years and say it has been "a fun ride." 

It's the Gophers vs. Stanford Friday in Lexington, Kentucky. The winner moves on to the Elite 8.
