Thomas More at Saint Vincent – Jan. 14, 2012

by Randy Gore

The Thomas More women’s basketball team has been so dominant over the years, including an undefeated national championship last year, that some folks may have forgotten when the Saints last lost a game to a PAC opponent. I was digging through the PAC Sports Network archives this weekend and came across our broadcast of the Thomas More vs. Saint Vincent game on January 14, 2012, which happened to be the last time the Saints lost a conference game. The Bearcats, led by the 2012 PAC Player of the Year, Brittany Sedlock, defeated the Saints 68-65. Below is the broadcast of that contest.

It’s fun to look back at this game for several reasons. First off, there were so many great players that participated in this contest, including four All-PAC first team selections. For Saint Vincent, Sedlock and Devin McGrath were later named to the All-Conference team. For Thomas More, Katie Kitchen and Allison Long were tabbed as First-Team selections. Secondly, check out the Saint Vincent logo at midcourt. The Bearcats transitioned to a new look and logo since then. Finally, this broadcast was from the PAC Sports Network’s very first season broadcasting PAC basketball. Since then, the PAC Sports Network has added a scoreboard bug with a game clock and now broadcasts in HD, among other improvements. Just an example of how far we’ve come as a network and how long it’s been since Thomas More last sustained defeat to a PAC foe.
