This is getting to be a hoop habit.

For the second consecutive year, Grand Canyon University has won the women’s championship of the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association tournament in Columbus, Ohio.

GCU went 5-0 in the tournament, which took place at The Ohio State University on April 20-22, defeating Florida, Columbus State, Angelo State and then Columbus State in the semifinals and Georgia Southern in the final.

Hannah Frederick, a nursing major set to graduate this week, was named Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year. Teammate Saylor Siegner also was named to the all-tournament team. 

The GCU team is coached by Fabian Coker, who graduated from the University last spring.
