Women's Basketball

The University of Dubuque Spartans women’s basketball first competed in the early 1900s, but the Iowa Conference officially began sponsoring the sport in 1982-83. Current head coach Mark Noll joined the Spartans in 2007. He is the 11th coach in the program’s history and has since become the all-time wins leader for the Spartans.

UD has consistently qualified for the IIAC women’s basketball tournament, missing it just once in past five seasons and setting a new school record of 11 wins in the IIAC in 2015 while claiming the team's first league title in school history. The Spartans have had 43 All-Iowa Conference Performers and over 30 Academic All-Iowa Conference honorees since 1982-83. UD runs an up-tempo offense while adding staunch defensive pressure.
