Head coach Todd Webb, said they’ve been looking forward to this day since losing in the playoffs last year.

“I can’t put it into words. When we lost in the Elite Eight last year, these girls made it a goal that they wanted to get back to this stage, and they wanted to win the whole thing. We invested two weeks after the season ended, in the weight room, on the court. The amount of hours these girls put in, they’ve earned every second of this," said Webb.

The celebration will start at 2:12 p.m. in the Beverly Athletic Center.
