SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The LSU Women’s Basketball team has one day left to prepare ahead of the Final Four game!

Parents of Emily Ward, team co-captain, joined KSLA on March 30 to talk about their daughter. Both Mary and Randy Ward are basketball coaches themselves, with Mary having coached Emily at Benton High School.

“Not many people get to the Final Four... to be able to play on the biggest stage in college is pretty awesome,” said Mary.

They say after the game, Emily will continue working on a master’s degree with LSU’s Sports Department.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 30!
