Lady Mustangs power way to national hoops battle against Holyoke

The Monroe Lady Mustangs are powering their way to the national hoops championships in Utica where they'll face a team they've never played before.

Monroe is trying to become the first back-to-back women's national championship team in more than 10 years. This is the Lady Mustangs' fourth-consecutive trip to the Division III championship playoffs. Monroe comes to the championship games with a 29-2 regular-season record.

The Lady Mustangs will play Holyoke Community College, which went 21-3 in the regular season. This will be the first time the teams meet on the hardwood.
