WSSU Elite Women continue to prove why they are not just a club and more than a team. On February 24, 2013, WSSU Elite Women fell just short of a victory against Georgia Southern University (31-40) at the NIRSA NCCS Regional Basketball Championship Tournament hosted by Georgia Southern University. The tournament began on Friday, February 22 with Pool Play games. By Noon Saturday, WSSU Elite had advanced to the Championship Opening Round playoffs defeating teams like Clemson University and Armstrong Atlantic State University (AASU). As a result of the draw, Elite once again defeated the AASU late Saturday evening.
With the championship just at their fingertips, Elite arose early Sunday morning to prepare for a long day of victories and support of their counterparts (WSSU Elite Men). As a top seed team, Elite progressed through the tournament Quarterfinals and Semifinals holding strong against women of Columbus State and West Georgia.
In the Women's Division, the tournament hosted 22 teams and 7 pools. As a result of their outstanding performance and commitment to the team, two WSSU Elite players were named All-Tournament players for the weekend. Vontisha Woods and Meghan Hardin were top players for assist, rebounds and points during the tournament.
