St. Francis women’s basketball team wins first-ever conference championship
The ladies of St. Francis Brooklyn are going dancing.
The St. Francis Terriers are headed to the NCAA tournament for the first time in the school’s history after they beat Robert Morris 77-62 in Pennsylvania on Sunday to win the Northeast Conference title.
“It is a great feeling,” Sarah Benedetti said. “I always loved being the underdog, and this is the true underdog story. It feels amazing. We have never been in this situation before, but our experience with our four seniors and one junior really builds our team chemistry, and that helps us when we had to make big shots to win the game.”
