Siena Falls in WBI Championship, 52-50
After a unbelievable 13-win turnaround from last season, the Siena women's basketball team fell in the championship of the Women's Basketball Invitational (WBI) on Sunday night, 52-50, against Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Saints trailed by as many as 14 with 12:15 left in the game, but mounted a final comeback that came up just short as Ida Krough's game-winning three-point attempt was off the mark.
"We have nothing to be ashamed of," said head coach Ali Jaques to SienaSaints.com. "It's really tough. We'll be back next year and we'll be fun to watch."
Siena even took a 48-47 lead with 1:44 left in the game on a pair of Tehresa Coles' free-throws.
Siena College was looking to boast a postseason champion for the second straight year -- as the Siena men defeated Fresno State in last year's College Basketball Championship (CBI).
Congratulations to Coach Jaques and her staff on a great season and we look forward to watching in 2015-16.
