USM’s Women’s Basketball team finished the season with an outstanding 16-11 record, the team’s best showing since 2013. The Huskies ended their season with a disappointing 93-58 loss to Eastern Connecticut State in the Little Eastern Conference Semifinals on Feb. 22.

The team had a very strong start to the season, finishing the first two months with a 7-2 record, not losing a single game in December. As January got underway, reality began to set in for the Huskies as they finished the month with a 4-4 record. February saw the exact same outcome as the month before, as a 4-4 finish saw the Huskies end the year at 16-11.

The team, lead by senior guard Alexa Srolovitz, athletic training major, and junior guard Jackie Luckhardt, also an athletic training major, had a much stronger finish than recent years, where the team lost a total of 21 games in the 2016-17 season.
