HAMDEN --  Quinnipiac University held a Sweet 16 send off rally for the women's basketball team who are set to take on No . 1 South Carolina Saturday at 4 p.m. in Stockton, California.

The team won their first ever NCAA Tournament game after defeating No. 5 Marquette, 68-65, in the first round of the tournament. In their next game, they defeated No. 4 Miami Hurricanes, 85-78.
