The Cal women, seeded No. 7 in the Notre Dame regional of the NCAA tournament, take on Fordham in their opener Saturday at Waco, Texas.
Junior point guard Brittany Boyd said the Bears (21-9) are ready for the challenge ahead.
“A lot of people got more confident,” Boyd said. “We’re still learning, but I think since the beginning of the season we’ve made a humongous leap.”
The game tips off at 1 p.m. on ESPN2.
