Father Holtschneider joined the pep rally to cheer on the DePaul women's basketball team on its way to the 2014 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 in Lincoln, Nebraska. At the send-off, he told the team that it has made DePaul and its more than 161,000 alumni extremely proud.

This year, the team won its first ever BIG EAST regular season title. And for the second time in three years, Inside Higher Ed recognized DePaul women's hoops as the top academic program in the NCAA tournament field. The BIG EAST Conference also recently named Coach Doug Bruno as the league's Coach of the Year.

The DePaul women's basketball team is a No. 7 seed, making its third  appearance in the NCAA Sweet 16 since 2011.  Congratulations to Coach Bruno and to the entire women's basketball program!
