The Red Flash’s postseason run in the Women’s Basketball Invitational came to an end on March 19 in a 67-57 home loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

SFU closed the season with a 17-15 mark and a 13-5 record in Northeast Conference competition.

The team accepted an invitation to the WBI after falling in the first round of the NEC postseason. The Flash won their first game of the WBI tournament at Campbell, 79-68, before falling to Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the second round at the Stokes Center.

Jessica Kovatch was the leading scorer for SFU against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, finishing with 17 points. Ace Harrison had 15 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks.

Three seniors in the program are graduating this year, including senior guard Taylor Allison.

“It’s disappointing knowing that we had the talent and the potential to win it all, but we just came up short,” said Allison, reflecting on the loss to Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

While there was disappointment with the loss, there was also appreciation for the team’s accomplishments this season.

“I feel like we set the bar higher for ourselves with our level of play,” said Kovatch, who captured NEC Player-of-the-Week honors four times while averaging 21.2 points per game in 32 games.

“For next year, we want to use this loss as motivation to get better as a team and hopefully win a championship.”

While the members of the team want to win every game, they also realize the importance of the relationships built with teammates off the court.

“Even though things didn’t go as I wanted, I feel I still won with the relationships I was able to build with the people on this team,” said Allison.
