Auburn women's basketball is going "dancing".

The Tigers earned an at-large berth in the NCAA Women's Tournament. Auburn (17-14) is a No. 11 seed in the Lexington Region. It will face No. 6 seed N.C. State (22-8) on Friday in Austin, Texas.

The winner of the Tigers and Wolfpack will play either No. 3 Texas or No. 14 Central Arkansas on Sunday.

It's Auburn's second straight trip to the NCAA Women's Tournament. Last year, the Tigers beat St. John's in the first round before losing to Baylor in the second round.

This season, the Tigers got off to a 6-1 start and landed in the Associated Press Top 25. Auburn could not maintain that level and lost seven of it's last 9--including a loss to Georgia in the SEC Tournament.
