After a record-breaking 2020-21 season, the Dragons are back in full force ready to take on the challenges ahead in the 2021-22 season. The bar has been set high as last year brought an 18-9 record and a 4th place finish in regular-season play. The 20-21 team won themselves a GMAC championship, a noteworthy win over #9 Cedarville University, and an impressive NCAA tournament run to the Atlantic Regional Sweet 16 game after defeating #3 ranked Glenville State. The team will return all 5 of their starters including All-Conference players Aarion Nichols (1st team and Defensive all-conference team) and Savanah Richards (2nd team).
The Dragons set a couple of new program records along the way. The 20-21 season recorded the most points scored in a season with the Dragons putting up 2023 points. Their 42.6% field goal percentage was the highest field goal percentage in program history. The Dragon team was the #1 defensive team in the conference, only allowing 63.6 opponent points per game. Their 18 win season and 4th place regular season finish was the most wins and highest place finish since the 2011-12 season. The GMAC Champions earned the program’s first NCAA tournament berth and continued to break program history records reaching the Atlantic Sweet 16 game. The team made impressive accomplishments off the floor as well. For the third year in a row, the Women’s Basketball team has been ranked in the WBCA’s All-Academic Top 25 Team. This past season the Dragons finished 6th with a team GPA of 3.721.
