DUBUQUE, Iowa—The 2018-19 basketball season came to its official end Thursday evening as the Faith Eagles women's basketball team fell to the Emmaus Bible College Eagles, 89-43, in the opening round of the NCCAA Division II North Regional Tournament.
Emmaus is ranked #6 in the nation and showed its force early and often against Faith, building a 24-6 advantage by the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, Emmaus sank six three-pointers and scored 26 points, squashing any hopes of a Faith comeback as they built their lead to 50-22 at the half.
Faith was just 3 of 11 shooting in the third quarter and 5 of 21 in the fourth quarter as their season drew to an end. The Eagles shot just 32% for the game, while Emmaus made 14 of 25 three-pointers as part of their scoring avalanche.
With the loss, the Eagles finished the season with a record of 9-13. With a lineup dominated by freshmen and sophomores, Coach Fincham's squad looks to have a solid nucleus to build on next season.
