The Rebels' luck ran out in the finals, however, as they were defeated by a taller and more experienced Madison team.

Chris Smith, B. J. Romanoski and J. R. Parker led the Rebels in scoring. Gregory Gray, Juan Livues and Ryan Pflugrad controlled the boards. Gray also excelled on defense, blocking several shots.

In the other game, Michelle Coleman scored a game-high 16 points, mostly on shots from the perimeter, as Villanova defeated Virginia, 24-2. Jodie Renfro and Meghan Shipley added four points each, and Karen Hild contributed with strong rebounding.

Mike Kelly's goal off an assist from Justin Bridle with 7:17 left briefly tied the game at 2 before the Virginia team scored two goals in 45 seconds to put the game on ice.

Against Bowie, the Huskies spotted their opponents a 3-0 lead before rallying to tie the score with 7:01 left to play after goals by Bridle, Matt Scott and Danny Fritz. But Bowie then scored the game-winner with 1:38 left in regulation.
