The Washington University women’s basketball team beat Hope College, 65-59, on March 20 to claim the Division III National Championship. The title is the Bears fifth — a Division III record — but the first since 2001. Graduate student Jaimie McFarlin (right) and senior Zoë Unruh were both named to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team, with McFarlin claiming the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player accolade. McFarlin scored 14 points with a season-high 15 rebounds in the win, while Unruh tallied 13 points. (With her 15 boards, McFarlin ended her career as the Washington U. all-time rebounding leader with 1,013. She also ended her career with 1,071 points, making her the only WUSTL player to surpass 1,000 in both categories.) Junior guard Alex Hoover also was superb in the title game; she scored a career-high 18 points and collected five rebounds and three assists. Check out bearsports.wustl.edu for the latest sports news.
