Alabama women’s basketball entered the NCAA Tournament as a No. 7 seed. Their postseason run ends with a loss to No. 2 Maryland 64-100.
Kristy Curry and the Crimson Tide may not have won it all after their loss in the second round, but they walk away with an achievement. The team’s 71-80 win over UNC was the program’s first win in a tournament since 1999.
The loss was a hard one, losing by 36 points.
Senior forward Jasmine Walker led the team in scoring with 23 points, she also matched senior forward Ariyah Copeland’s team-high seven rebounds. Junior guard Hannah Barber recorded a team-leading three assists.
This was Curry’s first time reaching the NCAA Tournament since 2013 when she was the head coach at Purdue.
The Crimson Tide finish the season with a 17-10 overall record and a conference record of 8-8.
