No Foolin’! The Wildcats Earn Title Shot in WBIT

By Shawn Proctor


On April Fool’s Day, the Women’s Basketball Team was all business in the WBIT, downing the Penn State Lady Lions 58-53 to advance to the championship game against Illinois Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Stand-out Lucy Olsen played all 40 minutes of the game and dropped 21 points en route to a hard fought “dub.”

To celebrate this big run, we’re looking back at this two-page collection of images from Women’s basketball through the years, courtesy of Villanova Athletics and the Falvey Library Collection, designed by Joanne Quinn, 15 MA, ’84 CLAS, Director of Communication and Marketing. The high-energy spread was featured in the Fall 2023 issue of Mosaic. 


TBT: Eyes on the Elite Eight

By Ethan Shea

This photo from Belle Air 2003 shows Villanova Women’s Basketball alum Courtney Mix leaping for a layup while her teammate Katie Davis watches for a rebound. Davis, a co-captain at the time, was recently inducted into the Big 5 Hall of Fame. With 1,293 points, she ranks 16th in school history.

The 2002-03 season was the first and last time the Wildcats advanced to the Elite Eight in the National Tournament. Twenty years later, (#4) Villanova is looking to repeat this feat by winning against the University of Miami on Friday at 2:30 p.m. Tune into ESPN to watch!

Best of luck to our women this week! #LetsMarchNova #TBT
