MILWAUKEE (AP) -- It's been a milestone season for the Marquette women's basketball team.

Two down, one to go.

The 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles, whose record is 25-0, set a program record for victories this season and were rewarded last night with a six-seed in the NCAA Tournament, their highest ever.

Coach Terri Mitchell says the next step is to reach the Sweet Sixteen for the first time, and that's what the Golden Eagles are after.

The 21st-ranked Wisconsin-Green Bay women's team, with a 28-3 record and 25-game winning streak, had to settle for a nine-seed in the tournament.

Marquette plays Louisiana-Lafayette in Austin, Texas, on Saturday.

With a victory, the Golden Eagles probably would advance to face ninth-ranked Oklahoma.

Green Bay plays New Mexico in Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday, with the winner likely to face fourth-ranked U-Conn next.
