Ten members of the 2005 team, along with two coaches, gathered in the lobby of the Reynolds Family Athletic and Convocation Center on campus before the game, together for the first time since the team won the title back in 2005. In a half-time ceremony, the champions were called out onto center court by name, and after remarks by Ursuline President Kate Levesque, were presented with bouquets and gifts to commemorate the evening.
