Women’s Basketball Wins Third Straight South Region Championship

By wlchrist Sharks snap top seed Union’s 18-game home winning streak and win 67-62. Go Sharks! For the third straight season, the Nova Southeastern University women’s basketball team has claimed the South Region championship and will advance to the NCAA Elite Eight, beginning next week in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, as they defeated Union on their home floor Monday night, 67-62. A back-and-forth first half saw the Sharks (27-5) gain the lead at 4:45, 28-26, and extend it to seven at the break, 39-32. Union (28-4) was shooting 75.0 percent at the under-8 media timeout, but the NSU defense helped dwindle that all the way down to 44.4 at the half, below the Sharks’ 46.9. Back-to-back 3-pointers out of the break by Danielle Robinson (Sr., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) and Alexis Murphy (Jr., Carlisle, Ohio) made for the first double-digit lead of the game and what would be the biggest advantage of the contest of 13 (45-32, 19:00). The Lady Bulldogs would chip back, actually regaining the lead momentarily after being down 10 at the 7:21 mark (59-49). Two free throws by Amy Philamlee at 3:42 capped an 11-0 Union run to make it 60-59, the home team’s first lead since 26-25 (at 6:10 …read more Source:: NSU News       ...

Come listen, learn and leave the hour prepared to start documenting your piece of history by writing your personal memoir.Accounts of the lives of individual women are critically important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do.

Knowing women’s achievements challenges stereotypes and upends social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish today.This program is …read more Source:: Broward County Library       ...
