GCU Club Women’s Basketball provides students with the opportunity to compete in collegiate-level basketball, facing all different levels. The season consists of a 20-game schedule against in-state collegiate level programs, including vying for a postseason championship. In 2017-18, the Lopes steadily improved throughout the season, and culminated the year with a region title and a quarterfinals finish at the NIRSA National Championship.
This tremendous experience is an opportunity for GCU students to build team skills and lifelong relationships.
