The Georgia Tech center didn't want to get ahead of herself. Goodlett reminded everyone that the Yellow Jackets had to win two games just to reach the regional semifinals.
Well, that's out of the way. Goodlett and her team are in the round of 16 for the first time in school history. But they sure didn't have much time to celebrate before Saturday's game in the Des Moines Regional.
Next up is top-ranked Baylor, which hasn't lost all season. The Bears are led by 6-foot-8 Griner, the nation's most dominant player.
Goodlett knows she'll have tough task trying to guard Griner, but she doesn't sound intimidated.
