The Wildcats (21-10) won their second ever MEAC tournament title and claim the MEAC's automatic NCAA Tournament bid. The NCAA women's field will be unveiled Monday on ESPN at 7 p.m. EST. B-CU last won the title in 1984.
"We had talked before we left campus that we had won every regular-season award there was to win," Vanessa Blair-Lewis, the tournament's Outstanding Coach, said. "Every type of trophy but this one. We didn't care about all those awards or who they would go to this year. Keep all of them. We just wanted [the championship trophy]."
