INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Abby Owings scored 17 points to lead Thomas More to its second consecutive Division III national championship with a 63-51 win over Tufts on Monday night.

Sydney Moss added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Saints, who completed an undefeated season at 33-0.

The game was tied at 49 with just 6 1/2 minutes left. But a steal and fast-break layup by Moss put the Saints back on top, sparking a decisive 10-0 run.

Michela North scored 10 points to lead Tufts (28-4), which was looking for its first national title.

Toward the end of the game, the Thomas More fans began chanting, "We want UConn."

Undefeated Lubbock Christian won the Division II title earlier Monday and a win by UConn on Tuesday would have unbeaten teams win all three titles for just the third time in history.
