Somehow, the LSU Lady Tigers did it again.

Reduced to eight players with eight minutes left in the game because of an injury to guard Jeanne Kenney, LSU still managed to pull out a stunning 76-67 upset of No. 2-seeded West Virginia in the second round of the NCAA tournament Louisville regional.

LSU (21-12), the No. 7 seed, advanced to its second straight Sweet 16 and will play No. 3 Louisville on its home floor Sunday.

West Virginia finished 30-5.

Kenney went out and was checked for a concussion at the 7:38 mark of the first half.

Danielle Ballard was again the star. She had 22 points and 15 rebounds, giving the sophomore guard 46 points and 32 rebounds in LSU's two NCAA games.

Aysa Bussie led the Mountaineers with 21 points.
