Triple Crown

Amy Waugh finished her college career with a nice touch. After setting the school record with 107 three-point baskets and leading the nation with 3.6 threes per game, Waugh participated in the 15th annual ESPN three-point shooting championship during the NCAA Final Four in New Orleans—and won. The senior guard defeated seven other women to claim the female crown, and then won the battle of the sexes over men’s champion Darnell Archey of Butler University, 17-14.

High Praise Freshman basketball player Tara Boothe was named Atlantic 10 Conference women’s basketball rookie of the year. Boothe finished the season sixth in the league in both scoring and rebounding and won the rookie of the week honor 11 times, including the last nine weeks straight. She is just the second women’s basketball player to win the award, along with Waugh.
