KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced the 2013 Division I Women's Basketball All-America Teams on Wednesday.
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Vanguard's bid at another national championship ended on Saturday evening in the NAIA quarterfinal round as the No. 8 Lions (25-4) fell to top-ranked Freed Hardeman (34-1), 60-49, at the Frankfort Convention Center.
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Vanguard's Russ Davis, one of the NAIA's most successful coaches, has been known to bring nearly as much intensity on the sideline as his teams do on the floor. On Friday, however, in the 2013 NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championships, he got to relax a little as his squad coasted past William Woods (Mo.) (26-7), 85-60, to punch its ticket to the quarterfinal round of the tournament.
FRANKFORT, Ky. – No. 8 Vanguard (24-3) took care of business in its first round contest with No. 26 Southern Poly (Ga.) (25-6) at the 33rd Annual NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championship, defeating an athletic Hornets' squad 82-76 in regulation.
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Eighth-ranked Vanguard (#2 seed) will square off against 26th-ranked Southern Poly (Ga.) (25-5; #7 seed) on Wednesday at the 2012-13 NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championship Tournament in the Frankfort Convention Center.
IRVINE, Calif. – No. 2 seed Vanguard (#8 NAIA; 23-3) battled No. 1 seed Westmont (#3 NAIA; 25-4) for the Golden State Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Championship on Tuesday evening at Concordia University. During the regular season, the Lions sustained two of their three total losses against the Warriors, but as the old sports adage states, "It's hard to beat a good team three times," and it proved true once again as the Pride defeated the Warriors 63-57 to secure the GSAC trophy.
