Watch West Florida women's basketball sink three half-court shots in a row

  West Florida gets loose before an early January game against Lee.

This may be the year that West Florida can do no wrong.

The Argonauts started the 2017-18 year with a record-setting run to the Division II Football Championship title game. The women's soccer team made it to the quarterfinals, while the volleyball team went to their regional finals. Now, the men's basketball team is off to a historic start of its own.

So, how did the women's basketball team top that?

The Argos are off to an 8-3 start, perfect on the new year after picking up a win against Shorter on January 2. They also looked nearly perfect from half court, sinking three half court shots in a row before their January 4 matchup against Lee. Halee Nieman gets the show rolling, graduate assistant coach Alex Coyne fires next, and Courtney Meyer puts the exclamation point on the "three-peat".

Things are certainly looking good this year in Pensacola.
