The Washington University men’s basketball team won its second-consecutive Division III Championship, defeating Richard Stockton College, 61–52, on March 21. Senior Tyler Nading scored a game-high 20 points and senior Sean Wallis added 16 in the victory at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia. WUSTL is now the fourth NCAA Division III men’s team to repeat as national champions, joining North Park University (1978–80), University of Wisconsin-Platteville (1998–99), and University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (2004–05). • The women’s basketball team (not pictured) had another outstanding season, 26–5, but came up just a little short in their quest for a fifth national title, losing to George Fox University, 60–53, in the post-season championship game. The Lady Bears, whose four national championships stand as the most in Division III history, are now 4–3 in the national championship game.
