Ferris State women's basketball team falls in NCAA DII Final Four appearance

The Ferris State University women’s basketball team fell to Texas Women’s University in the NCAA DII National Semifinals on Wednesday.

Texas Women’s University, the tournament’s second seed, moved out to a 25-16 lead by the end of the first quarter, then was in front 39-22 at the half, finishing the game 68-52 to advance to the national finals.  

Bulldogs went into the contest with a 26-5 record and celebrating the team’s first Final Four appearance.

Ferris State was making its seventh NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament appearance in the program's history and third in the past four full seasons. Ferris State advanced to the tourney in 2019-20 before it was cancelled due to COVID and fell in a first-round tournament thriller at Ashland two years ago before claiming the program's first regional championship this year.

This is the first time both Ferris State basketball teams advanced to the NCAA DII Elite Eight. The men’s team fell to Minnesota State University on Tuesday in Evansville, Indiana.
