Conference tourney title and an NCAA appearance.
in part, to these six players, the Lady Mocs also have several win streaks

program after graduation.
Notes on Today’s Game: Taylor Hall

leads the seniors in career games played (122) … needs to play in four more
games to finish with 126 and seventh all-time … Alex Black needs five made free
throws to reach 100 for a career … Meghan Downes needs 13 points to reach 500
for a career …
