SHAWNEE, Okla. – The Lady Rangers' regular season came to a close Saturday afternoon in Durant. Northwestern (15-13 overall and 11-11 GAC) is the sixth seed going into the conference playoffs starting on Thursday, March 3, with Northwestern's first game March 4.

Wednesday evening the Great American Conference held their annual end of season award banquet with multiple Lady Rangers receiving recognition following a successful season.

Bailey Brown earned first team all-conference following a regular season effort of 18.6 points per game, bringing down 8.1 rebounds per game. She ranked second in the conference in free throws made and sixth in the nation in this category. Brown achieved personal accolades this season as well becoming the first Lady Ranger player to reach 1,000 rebounds in her career.
