WKU Claims 3rd Title in 4 Seasons - Mar 11, 2018

The streamers fell and for the third time in four seasons, No. 2 WKU felt once again what it was like to be Conference USA Champions. The Lady Toppers punched their ticket to the NCAA Championship with a 72-57 victory over 2018 C-USA Regular Season Champion No. 1 UAB in the 2018 C-USA Women's Basketball Championship presented by Baylor Scott & White Sports Performance Center at The Star in Frisco.
The Lady Toppers (24-8) became just the second school in C-USA history to claim a trio of championships in a four-year span. This season marked the 13th conference title since the 1985-86 season, and with the win, WKU will make its 20th trip to the Big Dance. The squad will be coached by Michelle Clark-Heard in the NCAA Championship for the fourth time under her tenure. After earning its first C-USA regular season title, UAB closes the books on a historic year with a 26-6 record with a secure bid to the 2018 WNIT.
Tashia Brown (6'1''-F), 2018 C-USA Player of the Year, was awarded tournament honors with a final push on Saturday, registering a game-high 25 points to pair with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals. C-USA Defensive Player of the Year Ivy Brown (6'1''-F-95) posted a double-double on 12 boards, 11 points, three assists and two blocks. Whitney Creech (5'8''-G) pitched in 16 points on 7-of-10 FG shooting, and C-USA Freshman of the Year Raneem Elgedawy (6'4''-C-97) chipped in 11 points and four blocks.
Three Blazers performed in double figures, led by Rachael Childress (5'10''-G) who notched 16 points (6-17). Katelynn Thomas (6'0''-F) compiled 13 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes. Deanna Kuzmanic (5'9''-G) added 11 points and five assists.
Ivy did it all for the Lady Toppers in the opening frame, gathering eight points on 3-of-4 FG shots, five rebounds and a steal. The quarter was highlighted by WKU's 11-1 run, capped by an Ivy 3, that led to a 15-5 lead midway through. Childress owned UAB's first four points on a pair of jumpers, but an Elgedway layup evened the action at four apiece and after came seven-straight Lady Topper points.
Twice the WKU lead was withered down to three points minutes into the second quarter, once by a 3 from Childress and a layup by Katelynn Thomas at the seven-minute mark. From there, Tashia rallied to post 10 points as she threw up a final layup with one second to halftime.
A jumper from Creech extended WKU's advantage to 11 in the first minute of the third frame. The Blazers grew stronger offensively and out-shot the Lady Toppers en route to a one-point game made possible by a 3-pointer from Angela Vendrell. UAB eventually out-scored 15-13, but the Lady Toppers clung to a seven-point lead going into the final round.
WKU kept the engine running through the final 10 minutes as Tashia sunk an extra point at the foul line to hand her team its largest lead at 15 to cap the 2017-18 season.

Game Notes:
WKU senior forward Tashia Brown was named Championship MVP after averaging 20.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in the three Lady Toppers' wins.
WKU joins Tulane (four titles in five years from 1997-2001) as the only programs to win three C-USA Championship titles in four seasons.
This is WKU's 13th conference championship title since the 1985-86 season, winning a postseason tournament on average once every three seasons over that span.
The victory assures the Hilltoppers of their 20th NCAA Championship appearance and the fourth under head coach Michelle Clark-Heard.
This was the fifth time in the 23 years of the C-USA Women's Basketball Championship that the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds have met in the title game. With No. 2 WKU winning, the two seeds are 2-3 in such showdowns.
