Southeastern women’s basketball team achieved an historic postseason run, making their first-ever Southland title game appearance at the Southland Conference Tournament championship on March 13 at the Merrell Center in Katy, TX. Their excellence continued throughout the final game, with a close 56-52 loss in overtime to Incarnate Word.
The Lady Lions ended the season with a 16-11 overall record and a 10-4 conference record.
While five players will be graduating after this season, head coach Ayla Guzzardo believes the team is well prepared for the next season to potentially be an even bigger success. “We’ve gotten the taste of the big stage and the feeling from this last game is going to make our returners hungrier this offseason,” Guzzardo commented. “We’ve built this program by recruiting not only good players, but good people, and we’re going to continue to add quality to our roster.”
