Women's Tennis Senior Maho Kowase was presented with the NCAA Sportsmanship award at yesterday's Men's Basketball game.
During the 2012 NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Championship, Maho was competing in a singles match that was pivotal for the overall team championship. Kowase was trailing in the final set when the official made an incorrect score call that favored her.
When Kowase's opponent challenged the call, Maho immediately came forward to agree and correct the mistake. She ultimately won the match, pushing her team into the quarterfinals.
