Site: Queens College, Flushing, N.Y.

The tournament expanded to a four-day affair, in which four of the 16 teams had to play twice in one day. Immaculata College repeated as champions, thanks to a strong performance by team MVP Theresa Shank. It also went undefeated on the season (20-0).

Outstanding Performance: Immaculata's Theresa Shank scored 104 points in the tournament, averaging 25.1 points per game.

Interesting Fact: Revamped after the first women's basketball championship a year earlier, the AIAW was now the governing body of all women's college sports.

Crowd Control: Queens College fans were urged to show support for their school and refrain from derogatory comments about the opposition.

Attendance: The final was played before a packed house of 3,000 people. Many fans were turned away at the gate.

Bright Future: Shank would later coach the 1992 U.S. women's Olympic team, which won a bronze medal.
