The women’s basketball team won its fourth consecutive Ivy League title in March, earning a fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament. While the journey to Waco, Texas, did not prove fruitful — the Tigers lost their opening game, 60-44 to Florida State — the trip provided some memorable images of the team and its supporters, captured by photographer Beverly Schaefer.
