The Gannon women's basketball team is heading to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2010.

Doriyon Glass scored 15 points and Nettie Blake added 12, as Gannon edged California (Pa.), 50-47, on Monday in the Atlantic Regional final.

Cal held Jen Papich, Gannon's leading scorer, to seven points, and the Vulcans led, 18-13 at halftime. But the Knights stormed back in the second half, outscoring the Vulcans, 37-29.

Gannon (31-4) advanced to play Ashland (34-1), the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, at 9:30 p.m. March 26 in San Antonio.
