WICHITA, Kan. — To those unfamiliar with Wisconsin-Green Bay or Michigan State before their respective first-round NCAA tournament games, it didn't take long to identify the stars.
Green Bay senior forward Kayla Tetschlag scored 24 points and dominated Arkansas-Little Rock inside in a 59-55 win, continually catching lob passes and scoring easy buckets against overmatched defenders.
In Michigan State's 69-66 win over Northern Iowa, forward Kalisha Keane got the Spartans off to a good start, scoring 15 of her 17 points in the first half. She also wound up with six rebounds, six assists, three blocked shots and two steals.
Both teams said Monday that the inside matchup will be key when fifth-seeded Green Bay (33-1) faces fourth-seeded Michigan State (27-5) on Tuesday night, with a berth in the NCAA regional semifinals at stake.
