The Huskie women’s basketball team showed why they were No.1 in the country for all but one week this season, rolling to an impressive 82-64 victory over the Brock University Badgers in Sunday’s championship final in Ottawa.
"For our fifth years to come in and win a national championship in their first year and then go out national champions, it couldn't be any more special," said Huskies head coach Lisa Thomaidis.
"I couldn't be happier, we played our best basketball at the right time, peaked at this tournament and we played unselfish, quality basketball. I'm so proud of what we did this year and what they did this weekend."
Huskie fans and the campus community are invited to join the team for the championship celebration at noon on Wednesday, March 11 at USask’s Physical Activity Complex.
