Following back-to-back appearances in the "Sweet Sixteen" round of the NCAA Tournament, the Lady Lions' regular season slate includes at least 14 games against 11 opponents that qualified for the 2003 NCAA Tournament. Penn State's home non-league slate is filled with intriguing match ups against some of the nation's top programs including Louisiana State, Texas, Baylor and Louisiana Tech.
