July 8, 2016 —
Army Spc. Vanessa Laminson of Fort Bliss, Texas scored 13 as Army defeated Marine Corps 99-34 in game-10 of the 2016 Armed Forces Women’s Basketball Championship at the Chaparral Fitness Center at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland AFB, Texas on July 5th.
Army secures a spot in the Championship game and will face Air Force in the final game of round-robin play. Navy will go up against Marine Corps on the 6th of July. Air Force can reach the finals if they beat Army or if Marine Corps defeats Navy. If Navy wins and Air Force lose, Navy will advance to face Army in the finals based on the point differential between Air Force and Navy. Navy’s 78-56 win over Air Force earlier in the day gave them the nudge.
The 2016 Armed Forces Championship format consists of double round robin play, where each team faces one another twice for seeding. The top two best records will face one another in the championship match to claim the 2016 Armed Forces crown.
