For the first time in school history, the UB Women's basketball team is heading to the Sweet 16. On Tuesday the team returned home from Tallahassee, FL after knocking off No. 3 seed Florida State 86-65 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. 

The Bulls will now face their most difficult opponent yet -- the defending national champs, South Carolina. Before the team heads to Albany, NY for the Sweet 16 players Stephanie Reid and Cierra Dillard, along with head coach Felisha Legette-Jack met with reporters to discuss their season thus far and their upcoming matchup. 

"This is exciting, to go up against the team that won the national championship," Legette-Jack said. "Is it something to be afraid of? We're too silly and corky to be afraid. We just want to find out, we just want our story to be on the biggest stage and if the biggest team and the biggest stage presents itself for us, we go forward, we go forward." 

You can watch the entire interview with Reid, Dillard, and Legette-Jack above. The Bulls take on South Carolina in Albany at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
