2019 HOF Class of 2019

Recommended Posts

And here is the team that started it all. It was so sweet to stick it to Amy Ruley in the Bison Sports Arena in the regional final (and during the next two years as well)! :devil:

The back to back to back Championship teams will always be remembered for winning it all.  But really they remind us of era of dominance that is rarely seen in any sport. Hockey's run from 1997-2017 was pretty damn impressive, but the 19 year run from the early 90's through the mid 2000's might have been more impressive!!

UND womens basketball stats from the 1989-1990 season through the 2007-2008 season (19 seasons):

  • Record:  516-78
  • NCC Championships:  11
  • NCAA Tournament Appearances:  19 (consecutive)
  • NCAA Elite 8:  7
  • NCAA Runner Up:  1
  • NCAA Championships:  3

The Golden era of basketball at UND and the womens program was the crown jewel!!

Anyone got links to any of the other championships? 

Wish I did. This is the only one available for purchase from the NCAA for some reason.

The one thing I will always remember about the 1997 team was the Regional Championship game in Fargo against the Bison.  Remember that for most of the decade, NDSU women's basketball was king.  They had played in the last 6 National Championship games, winning 5 of them.  Going into that game UND had everything stacked against them.  NDSU was the 4 time defending National Champions, had beaten UND the last 5 meetings including the previous years Regional Final, and were currently undefeated (28-0) going into that game against UND.  And UND went into Fargo against all those odds and beat them.  And that changed everything.  The Sioux had finally gotten over the hump and taken down the giant.  Of course we all know what happened after that, 3 straight National Championships as well as another title game appearance.  One could argue the balance of power shifted over to UND and has been that way ever since.  One of the biggest moments in UND athletics history.

If I remember right UND was losing by 10+ pts late in the game and it looked like another loss before going a nice run to finish the game.

Down 10 with about 5 minutes left. Roebuck called a timeout and Tiffany put the team on her back and ended on a 19-2 run.

Wow, what a fun game to watch. Up tempo, balanced scoring, good D, and the crowd... as good as it gets. Can't tell me that team couldn't have  played with, or more likely beaten, any of the DI teams we've had here. Really miss that...
