With its dramatic 54–47 overtime victory over Kean University at the Golden Dome, the Rutgers University–Newark women’s basketball team (16-13) won its first New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) championship. The Scarlet Raiders—led by Faith Ashby SASN’19, who was NJAC Player of the Year and First Team All-NJAC guard—also qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament, losing in the first round to SUNY New Paltz. “Rutgers–Newark has put its name on the map as a program,” said Ashby, “and I feel like we can only  go up from here.”
