The University of Windsor Lancers women's basketball team will fly to Regina on Wednesday afternoon. They will be looking to win a third consecutive CIS women's basketball championship.
Head coach Chantal Vallee said she's not worried about her team resting on its laurels.
'Everybody's so hungry. Everybody wants to win.'— Chantal Vallee, Lancers head coach
"I don't think, at this point in time, anybody would be complacent, [not] when you get to a national championship," Vallee said. "I think the complacency we had to struggle [with] — if any — was throughout the season. But once we're there, my goodness, everybody's so hungry, everybody wants to win."
The Lancers are the top-ranked team in the tournament and have gone undefeated this regular season.
Vallee said the team is getting the hang of playing in national championship tournaments. For Vallee, it's her fifth trip to a national championship.
"The first time we won was very stressful. The second time was still very difficult to win," she said. "Now it's the third time around. There's a little bit more pressure to win again, and do it for the third time in a row - it's fun."
The Lancers meet the Ottawa Gee-Gees on Friday afternoon in the first round of the eight-team tournament.
