March Madness may not officially tip off until later this week, but one former SM East student has already enjoyed some of the fun of NCAA tournament basketball.
Alison Stephens, a 2010 SM East grad, got to hoist the NCAA Division 3 women’s basketball title trophy Saturday after she and her Depauw University teammates capped off a perfect season with a 69-51 championship victory over Wisconsin – Whitewater.
The Tigers finished the year 34-0. Stephens had a particularly good game in the tournament quarterfinals, when the 5’11” guard/forward snagged 11 rebounds in a win over Christopher Newport.
Stephens’ mother Betsy and stepfather Charlie Vasey live in Prairie Village. Her father Craig Stephens lives in Brookside.
