We award the Women’s Student-Athlete of the Week honor to the entire Alice Lloyd College Lady Eagles basketball team.
Team Record: Week: 0-1 Overall: 20-9
The squad won the Western Division Championship of the River States Conference and won two games to advance to the tournament championship. There, they faced top-seeded West Virginia Tech University on the Lady Golden Bears home court.
The Lady Eagles battled the entire game before suffering a heartbreaking 68-66 defeat, falling on a shot at the buzzer.
By virtue of winning the Western Division of the RSC, Coach John Mills and his scrappy club still earned a spot in the NAIA National Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa for the second consecutive season.
ALC will now face the nation’s #2 ranked team, the 27-2 Southeastern University Fire (Lakeland, Florida) on Wednesday, March 6th. Tipoff is set for 6:15 pm (EST).
