The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team is ranked 20th in Division III in the final D3hoops.com poll for the 2005-06 season.

The Mules, who set a school record for wins with a 26-3 record and captured their first Centennial Conference championship in eight years, were ranked 15th before falling to Mary Washington in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Mary Washington went on to lose in the next round to Bowdoin, which was defeated by Southern Maine in the “Elite Eight.”

Southern Maine knocked off Hardin-Simmons in a national semifinal, but lost to Hope in the championship game.

Muhlenberg, therefore, lost to the team that lost to the team that lost to the team that lost to the team that won the national championship.

The Mules were 22nd in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association final poll.
