Record winning streak

Women's Basketball

Senior center Camille Marie puts pressure on an opponent during Cornell’s 66–45 trouncing of Grinnell College in January.

The nationally ranked Rams enjoyed a historic 22–1 regular season and captured their first Midwest Conference women’s basketball championship since 1982. Cornell, which went 17-1 in conference games, earned the No. 1 seed and right to host the MWC Tournament Feb. 22–23. Coach Brent Brase’s Rams are the winningest basketball team in school history, topping the 21–7 men’s squad of 2008–09.

Cornell entered the postseason ranked No. 1 in the Central Region, and in the Top 15 in two national polls. The Rams reeled off 15 consecutive victories to start the season—the longest win streak in program history—and finished the regular season 13–0 at home.

The Rams rank in the NCAA Division III top 10 in field goal percentage, rebound margin, and three-point percentage. Senior Camille Marie, the program’s all-time scoring leader, heads a balanced offense at 13.5 points per game, followed by sophomores Rikki Mulloy and Taylor Dicus, both in double figures. Dicus is No. 1 in the MWC in field goal percentage, while Mulloy tops the conference in free throw percentage with 91.4 percent.
