St. Thomas 2014-2015
N.C.A.A. Tournament Bound
Four years ago, a group of St. Thomas basketball freshmen got what Coach Ruth Sinn called a “taste” of a magical season that ended with a trip to the NCAA Division III Final Four and a third-place finish.
Those freshmen are seniors now – owners of a 27-0 record, winners of four straight MIAC playoff championships. They’re primed for what they hope will be another deep run in the NCAA playoffs.
The No. 2-ranked Tommies secured an automatic bid into the national tournament for the 22nd time in school history with a hard-fought 65-51 win over Bethel on Saturday. They will learn their next opponent on Monday, and if they will host the first round beginning on Friday, when they will attempt to become the first St. Thomas women’s team to start a season 28-0.
“When you have eight seniors trying to leave a mark, that can happen,” Sinn said about the perfect regular season and another conference playoff title. “This is a hungry group that is focused.”
The Tommies (25-0 overall, 18-0 MIAC) improved to 12-0 in road games this season and claimed the program’s 14th MIAC title, a league best.
