UB Head Coach Felisha Legette-Jack said Thursday that her squad has nothing to lose and just needs to go out and have some fun in their first trip in the Big Dance.

She also added the Buckeyes should have all the nerves since they're playing on their home court and are expected to win.

This Bulls team has shown no fear during this historic postseason run and they'll have to do the same against a Buckeye team that is averaging nearly 90 points per game.

In the history of the women's tournament no 14-seed has ever pulled the upset and beat a 3-seed.

But, when they hit the court the Bulls say the seedlings don't matter.

"There’s five kids on our side, five on their side, three officials, it’s 94 feet and 10-foot rims. We’re not going to over-respect anybody, we’re not going to be overly afraid of anybody," Head Coach Felisha Legette-Jack said.  "This is a microcosm of life. You’re going to play people who think they’re better than you, the community may think they’re better than you, even your boss may think they’re better than you. You have to decide your greatness and your worth.”

Tip time for the Bulls and Buckeyes is set for 2:30.

UB has won eight of their last nine games, while OSU has lost three of four heading into the NCAA Tournament.
