Trine needed just 22 minutes and seven points from Williams in a blowout MIAA semifinal win over Alma, but the energy saved there paid off when she played 49 minutes in a 70-65 2OT conference championship victory over Hope. Williams scored 20 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, shooting 7-13 from the floor and 6-8 from the FT line, playing eleven minutes more than anyone else on the team.
Hageman ended her career on a high note, leading all Spartan players with 22 points and 16 rebounds during the team's 69-52 win over Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday. Her 22 points matched a season-high, while the 16 rebounds were a career-best. She shot eight-of-11 overall in the game, including a perfect three-of-three from behind the three-point line, in addition, she recorded a season-high five assists and picked up three steals.
Nolan scored 17 of his career-high 26 points in the second half to lift WashU past the University of Chicago Saturday in the season finale for both teams in St. Louis. The victory for WashU secured a second-place finish in the UAA. Nolan, who was 11-of-18 from the field, also tied his career-high with six assists and five steals.
Cameron totaled 86 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists in Wesley's playoff run in the Atlantic East Conference Tournament. Cameron was a point away from the Wesley single-game scoring record when he scored 48 points in the Atlantic East quarterfinals against Cabrini. He shot 28-for-44 (64%), 14-for-23 (61%) from three and 16-of-20 (80%) from the free-throw line.
Smith helped lead Sewanee to the 2019 Southern Athletic Association Men's Basketball Tournament Championship, scoring 27 points on 10-of-14 shooting in Sewanee's 82-64 victory over Hendrix in the quarterfinals. In the 70-63 win over Berry in the semifinals, Smith set a career-high in points with 40 on 10-of-14 shooting, 8-of-11 from downtown, and 12-of-14 from the charity stripe. In the finale on Sunday, Smith drained 6-of-7 from long distance to finish the contest with 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting. He also recorded the game-winning assist on Michael Barry's 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds to go to defeat SAA Regular Season Champions and host Centre, 62-59.
Nichols averaged 32 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists over two LEC tournament games, victories over Western and Eastern Connecticut, shooting 63% from the floor, including 56% from the three point line. His 37 points in the championship game against Eastern Connecticut secured a position in the NCAA tournament that was not guaranteed without the victory.

He connected on 19-of-30 field goal attempts and 11-of-15 free throws in the two games while averaging 30 minutes per contest.
