The UAA women put up a strong effort but ultimately could not overcome 25 percent shooting from the field in a 60-56 loss to west region top seed Cal Poly Pomona in the first round of the NCAA Division II basketball tournament on Friday. 

The loss ends UAA's season, the program's second under Ryan McCarthy, with a final record of 19-9. 

Seawolf guard Kyle Burns led the team in scoring in the final game of her career, scoring 16 points.  Sophomore guard Jessica Madison contributed 10. 

The five-time NCAA champion Broncos, owners of a 23-6 record, were led by 23 points from 6-foot-1 center Jada Blackwell.
