Amy Eagan’s Bulldogs qualified for their fifth straight conference tournament, but came up on the short end in a first-round loss to Indianapolis in Pershing Arena.
Truman was 16-11 overall and 10-8 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference with senior Allie Norton earning All-GLVC first-team honors.
Norton became the 10th Truman player to earn all-conference honors at least three times during her career, and led the Bulldogs in scoring at 15.1 points per game. For her career, Norton set new program standards in three-pointers made with 277, three-point field goal percentage at 41.8 percent, and tied for first in games played and started with 112. She finished fifth in career assists with 331 and eighth in points scored with 1,342.
The Bulldogs played one of the toughest schedules in Division II to start the season. They defeated Division I Alabama-Birmingham in an exhibition to start the year, then won seven of their first nine with a road win over nationally ranked Missouri Southern and losses to top-10 ranked Pittsburg State and West Texas A&M. The team hit a stumbling block with three losses in mid-January, but rebounded with four straight wins to earn the home playoff game.
