Gorillas head to the Elite EightThe PSU women’s basketball team made its first trip to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight this year, but that accomplishment was only one of many. The Gorillas started out the regular season by setting a school record for most consecutive games won, with 14, and continued to be the fastest in program history to reach the 20-win mark. The Gorillas finished the season with a 27-6 record, setting records for most wins in a season, fewest losses, longest win streak (14 games), most rebounds and most blocked shots.
The team finished second in the MIAA, won the program’s first NCAA Tournament game, captured the South Central Regional title and advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history. Lizzy Jeroninus was named an honorable mention All-American and Lane Lord earned both MIAA Coach of the Year and WBCA Region 6 Coach of the Year honors.
