Champions: FDU-Florham Women’s Basketball Team Puts Logo in Forefront

Devil_Artwork__HEAD_Leave it to the women’s basketball team at New Jersey’s FDU-Florham to introduce me to one of the more sinister logos in college athletics.

Last month the Fairleigh Dickinson University Devils completed a perfect 33-0 season with an 80-72 win over Whitman College in the Division III title game played in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

It’s the eighth time a women’s Division III basketball program has wrapped up an undefeated season.

I’ll have to find time to research whether those other perfect squads had an equally cool logo and nickname to go along with the hardware.

Senior Jalessa Lewis finished with a team-high 21 points while adding six assists and four rebounds. Junior Kyra Dayon shot 6 of 12 from the floor for 18 points. She also had five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot in the win.

Rachel Groom scored 11 points for FDU-Florham while Marc Mitchell was named coach of the year by DIII News following the season.

Whitman’s Heather Johns led all players with 25 points.

Follow the road to redemption for the Devils below.
