Breaking records, presenting trophies, cutting down nets, shedding tears and shooting streamers. On the last day of March, Indiana’s WNIT championship game Saturday delivered all that and more.

Indiana (23-14) wins its first national postseason tournament ever 65 to 57 over Virginia Tech (23-14) in front of a record crowd of 13,007. It’s the sixth largest crowd in WNIT history and breaks Indiana’s all time women’s attendance record.
