On the day the world ended, Amy Bullimore sat in the locker room a little longer than usual to soak it all in. She cried and reflected as her coach tried to put the team’s season in perspective.

It had been one year and six days since the fifth-ranked Ohio Northern women’s basketball team had lost a game. They finished the 2016-17 season 30-1, losing to 10th-ranked Christopher Newport in an intense Elite Eight matchup at King Horn Sports Center last March.

Up until Saturday, the largest deficit that the fifth-ranked Ohio Northern women’s basketball team had faced was nine points; they trailed by that margin at Muskingum early in the second quarter on February 4, although they would eventually win the game by eight.

In Saturday’s Elite Eight matchup with 10th-ranked Christopher Newport, the previously undefeated Polar Bears found themselves down 21 points at the 7:51 mark in the third quarter.
