In the Final Four, Hobart and William Smith defeated South regional champion Rensselaer Poly. (62-61) to advance to the National Championship game where Hobart and William Smith claimed the National Title with a win over East regional champion Bethel (53-52).
An interesting and unimportant fact...William Smith is the all female sister school to the all male Hobart. They are either Hobart or William Smith...I don't know that any of their athletic teams go by Hobart and William Smith.
While they share an athletics webpage, each has their own independent athletic dept. Hobart athletic colors are blue and orange and William Smith is green and white....None of this matters except to the extent I was amused by the fact that Hobart's colors on their team page in WIS are green and white
