Rutgers ended its season with a loss to Virginia, 71-55, in the second round of the WNIT on March 20 at the RAC. Senior Kahleah Copper ended her RU career with 19 points to lead the squad and cement her spot as the third all-time leading scorer in RU history. Senior Rachel Hollivay concludes her career as the all-time leading shot blocker for RUWBB, and trails only two of the men's squad in that category. The team wraps up play with a 19-15 record overall. We say a fond farewell to seniors Ariel Butts, Briyona Canty, Kahleah Copper, Alana Ferruggiaro, Cynthia Hernandez and Rachel Hollivay and thank them for their devotion to the Rutgers Women's Basketball team. As for the rest -- see you next season at the RAC!
