The Ithaca College women’s basketball team set a school record with their 15th straight win, a 74-38 victory over Elmira College, then broke that record twice more, extending the winning streak to 17 before finally losing 38-37 to Utica in the Empire 8 championship finals.
But the team broke another record this season. Winners of the Empire 8 regular-season title, they ended up 16-0 in league play, a first in conference history not only for women’s basketball but for any sport.
Without seniors and leading scorers Katherine Bixby and Lindsay Brown on the court next year, it’s going to be tough for women’s basketball to break more records, but the team does hope to improve in tournament play, after the last-second heartbreaker to Utica and a loss to DeSales in the first round of the NCAA playoffs.
