Campus Champion

Under the direction of head coach Jacey Brooks, the Cortland women’s basketball team captured the program’s first SUNYAC title since 2010 and cut down the nets after knocking off top-seeded New Paltz in the conference finals. The squad punched a ticket to the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive season, finishing 24-5 after dropping a back-and-forth second-round game to nationally 20th-ranked Trinity College. Jacey and her assistants have been named the conference’s Coaching Staff of the Year twice during her five-year tenure, but she passes all of the credit to her student-athletes, including four who earned all-conference honors this past season.
