Oklahoma State senior point guard Tiffany Bias will lead her Cowgirl teammates against unbeaten Notre Dame Saturday at 1:30 in the NCAA regional semifinals in South Bend, Indiana.
It will be OSU's third Sweet 16 appearance in history, and they've never made it to the Elite Eight.
For Bias, it's the pinnacle of a fantastic career, but as its winding down, she's also reflected on a painful time.
Two and a half years ago, a plane crash killed OSU head coach Kurt Budke and assistant Miranda Serna.
The loss of those two coaches has been with Bias and her teammates ever since, and it will be with her as she plays to try to get the Cowgirls farther than they ever have before in the NCAA Tournament.
