Despite early bumps in the road, Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS) women’s basketball still have championship aspirations. With a young core that’s eager to prove themselves, the Athenas are looking to do some damage in the SCIAC this season.
Young, scrappy and hungry: the Pomona-Pitzer (P-P) women’s basketball enters this season with a team featuring mostly first years and sophomores, however, the squad has high hopes for the future with the young core they plan to develop over the next few seasons.

The Sagehen men fell to No. 2 Whitman 83-74 March 2, while the P-P women lost 72-46 to No. 13 Wisconsin-Oshkosh a day earlier.
P-P women’s basketball beat CMS in the SCIAC title game, clinching a trip to the NCAA Tournament and defeating the Athenas for the first time in six years.

As the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men’s and women’s basketball teams get ready to begin their seasons, the Stags hope some fresh faces will continue their recent SCIAC dominance, while the Athenas return a familiar squad, eager to avenge their loss in the conference title game last season.
