Notre Dame wins inaugural NCAA award for top team field goal shooting

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- TheNotre Dame Fighting Irish have been awarded the inaugural NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Shooting Award for top team field goal percentage for the 2013-14 season.

The Fighting Irish shot a Division I women’s basketball-leading 51.1 percent from the field this season, making more than one out of every two shots attempted. The team’s achievement was recognized and they were presented with the award during the Women’s Final Four national semifinal game at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

With new basketball rules and points of emphasis put in place prior to the start of the 2013-14 season designed to help increase the freedom of movement for the offense and decrease the physicality of the game, the NCAA wanted to reward the team that had the top shooting percentage. Overall, Division I women’s basketball field goal shooting was 40.5 percent overall, a 1.6 percent increase this season. Women’s basketball also had an overall increase to 67.7 points per game, better than five points more than the 62.1 during the 2012-13 season.
