Navy is the second team to win three consecutive Patriot League championships; Holy Cross captured four in a row from 1998-2001.
Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese knew that Navy would not be an easy ship to sink in the first round of the NCAA tournament, especially if Alyssa Thomas, the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, wasn't at her best.
Navy picked the ideal time to begin playing its best basketball of the season.
"Before the game our players felt genuinely confident, and they brought that out onto the court," Pemper said. "It was just a real mature effort by the women on our team."
"We shoot the 3 and it's part of why we had a successful season. We certainly shot it tonight, we just didn't connect on it enough," Pemper said. "...I don't look at 59 points to the ACC champs and think that's why we lost, but dang we spent all week working on offense."
