Entering the ASC Tournament, top-seeded UMHB women’s basketball looks to avenge uncharacteristic loss

BELTON- There was nothing but silence inside the UMHB locker room. And yet, everyone had the same thought. 

This was not the way it was supposed to go, ending the regular season with a loss on senior day to a rival that broke a 20-game win streak and perfect conference record. The emotions from the Crusaders postgame were that of a season-ending defeat, rather than a regular-season meeting. 

No. 15 UMHB women’s basketball defeats UT-Dallas 55-46 behind strong effort defensively

RICHARDSON- The last time UMHB and UT-Dallas battled, it took the Cru overcoming a seven-point deficit and an overtime period to decide the victor. 

But on Sunday afternoon, in what UTD head coach Polly Thomason called “a matchup of two good game plans defensively”, UMHB led for 66 percent of the game, and perhaps more importantly, held the lead as the final buzzer sounded. No buzzer-beating shots, or late scoring runs necessary. UMHB earned the 55-46 victory, its 16th straight, and moved to 14-0 in ASC play.
