ALBANY, N.Y. -- She walked to the bench at 11: 33 Saturday morning, the final time she would be on court as a member of the Loyola women's basketball team. With no outward signs of emotion, Jennifer Bongard grabbed a towel with one hand, a drink with the other, and started shouting encouragement to teammates. With that, she moved on to the next chapter of her basketball life, as she is likely to be part of Loyola's staff in some capacity next season. Bongard's final chance at a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship ended at Pepsi Arena yesterday, as sixth-seeded Loyola lost to second-seeded St. Peter's, 66-41, in the semifinals.

There was a time this season when the Naval Academy's women's basketball team was off to its best start ever at 12-0. But within a week, sophomore starters Jenny Thompson and Becky Dowling were lost for the season with knee injuries, and the Midshipmen had been dealt two severe blows.Then came what could be the knockout punch. Team captain Adria Schneck (20.5 ppg, 7.7 rpg), Navy's leading scorer this winter, was suspended for the rest of the season for violations of the administrative disciplinary act."
