NCAA Semifinals

The 2002 Lady Monarchs won three games to open the season, but a pair of losses sandwiched a pair of wins to put ODU at 5-2. They rattled off 10 consecutive wins, culminating with an overtime win over #2 Michigan to move to 15-2 before a loss at Penn State. Two consecutive 3-2 wins, over Princeton and UNC closed out the regular season, and ODU added two more ranked wins in the CAA tournament to earn the top seed in the NCAA tournament, going 19-3 in the regular season with nine wins over tournament teams, including the #3 and #4 seeds. Behind Honda honoree Tiffany Snow and fellow All-Americans Angie Loy, Tara Herrmann, and Melissa Leonetti, ODU averaged over five goals a game, a scoring average that still ranks in the top-five all-time. The Lady Monarchs scored 131 goals in 2002, four times reaching double-digits in a single game. They scored nine in the first two rounds of the tournament before losing to Penn State in the semifinals.
