The Lady Lion basketball team closed out their season at 35-1 after a 73-70 quarterfinal loss to No. 3 Campbellsville University in the NAIA national tournament in Billings, Montana.

“I have so much respect for Coach Dale Neal and what he does with his program,” Ginger Colvin, Campbellsville head coach, said. “His kids don’t play dirty; they play hard and they play well.”
