The Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tournament starts today, the first day of March. It's the month where anything can happen in college basketball.

As the seventh-seeded Lincoln women get set to take on second-seeded Pittsburg State in the quarterfinals at 6 p.m. today at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, the Blue Tigers hope to kick March off in style by pulling an upset.

What a story it would be if Lincoln could pull it off. The Blue Tigers (14-12, 8-12 MIAA) are in the MIAA championships for the first time since the 1985-86 season.
