Notes:
  •Queen's College's first women's basketball team was in 1947-48.
  •The popular nickname for this team was the “Knightees” for most of the 1970's. Queens College was a center for the women's movement and all used this name for the popular team. In the latter, waning years in this golden age for QC women's basketball, correctness kicked in and they became the Lady Knights.
