DII national championship: Ashland completes undefeated season with title win over Va. Union

  Ashland closed out a 37-0 season with its second-ever national title.

Ashland put a cap on its perfect season with a DII national championship game win over Virginia Union Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

The No. 1 seed pulled away from the Panthers in the second half, thanks to a balanced offensive effort that included five double-digit scorers. On the other side, Virginia Union's Alexis Johnson scored a game-high 28 points, but it wasn't enough to hand Ashland its first loss of the season.

Box score: Ashland 93, Virginia Union 77
