Toms finish unbeaten MIAC season
The St. Thomas women's basketball team scored a 78-49 win at Gustavus Saturday to win its 23rd consecutive game and finish 22-0 in the MIAC season. It's the first time in the six-year history of a 22-game format that a team has gone 22-0 in the conference basketball schedule.
Coach Tricia Dornisch's Tommies, ranked fourth nationally, improved to 24-1. Jen Ulstad scored 15 points off the bench and Mary Thomes and Molly Hayden had 14 points each. The Toms led 40-27 at halftime and pulled away in the second half. UST is now 120-2 since 1994 when it holds teams under 60 points.
UST will learn its NCAA playoff pairing Sunday night. The Toms likely will get a first-round bye Wednesday and host a second-round game Saturday.see box score here
