Postseason appearances

The Crimson have reached the NCAA Tournament six times (1996, 1997, 1998, 2002, 2003, and 2007), with one postseason win in 1998 over Stanford 71–67. To date, this is the only time a #16 seed has beaten a #1 seed in women's NCAA Tournament history (In men's basketball, the UMBC Retrievers became the first to do so, 20 years later). The historic win sent them into the Second Round (only reached one other time in Ivy League history), where they lost 82–64 to Arkansas.
