Women's Basketball invited to ESPN National Tourney

Been quite a busy week for our Women's Basketball team with the flood of post-season awards for the players and it just got even better. For the third consecutive year, Dr. Phillips has been invited to compete in the ESPN National Invitational Tournament pitting the Panthers against some of the best teams in the nation. DP (29-3) won the national title in 2011, finished second in 2012 and will look to bring home the top prize again this year, April 4-6, in Bethesda, Maryland. The competition will be fierce, obviously, with two new teams in the mix. Traditional participant Archbishop Spalding is Maryland's top-ranked team with a record of 29-2. Life Center of Burlington, New Jersey comes in at 28-2, as does four-time defending Florida 5A State Champion Ft. Lauderdale Dillard. While the pairings for the four-team event have not been released yet, it would be hard to imagine both Florida teams squaring off in the semifinal. The bracket should be released shortly as will the broadcast schedule.
