Classmate Michelle Kirk is also a member of the 1,000-point club, as she currently sits fifth in school history with 1,223 points. Double Your Pleasure Leer has recorded double-doubles in two of American’s first four games this season, which gives her five in her career. She registered 15 points and 13 rebounds in AU’s season-opening win at East Carolina, and put together a 16-point, 14-rebound performance in last Wednesday’s triumph at Mount St. Mary’s. Her 14 rebounds matched a career-high, as did her five assists against The Mount. A Perfect 10 During a stretch of last Wednesday’s victory over Mount St. Mary’s, American knocked down 10 consecutive three-pointers. This came during a 10:45 run of play at the end of the first half and into the first 9:02 of the second period. AU finished with 11 made threes in the game, which tied for the second most single-game treys in program history. Stepping Up the D AU held Mount St. Mary’s to 34 points, marking the second fewest points the Eagles have given up in a singlegame in program history. The record was set when American surrendered 31 points to Lafayette last January 30 in a 22-point victory. Seven-Up On November 15, Michelle Kirk was named the Patriot League Player of the Week after averaging 20.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks per game in AU’s first two contests of the season (at East Carolina and High Point). For Kirk, this was her seventh PL Player of the Week selection in her career, which included a conference-high five honors last season. Gettin’ It Done From the Line In American’s season-opening win at East Carolina, Kirk set a new school-record with her 16 made free throws. She has converted 28-34 (82.4 percent) from the line in AU’s four contests this season. As a team, the Eagles made 34 free throws against ECU, the second most makes in a single-game in program history. Last season, the Eagles were 17-4 in games in which they attempted more free throws than their opponents.

CORKERY

Head Coach • 3rd Season • West Texas A&M, ‘93 • 44-24 Matt Corkery is in his third season as the head women’s basketball coach at American University. Corkery has a 44-24 career record at AU, including a 22-6 mark in Patriot League play. The 2009-10 campaign was a historic season for Corkery’s Eagles. American finished Patriot League play with a 13-1 Patriot League record, its best ever conference record, and earned a share of the Patriot League regular season championship. Additionally, AU’s 2210 overall record gave the Eagles only their fourth ever 20win season. The 22 wins were the second most ever in school history, and AU was rewarded with its program-record third straight postseason berth. Additionally, junior forward Michelle Kirk was named the program’s first ever conference Player of the Year, as well as a ECAC Division I All-Star and Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association Scholar-Athlete. Classmate Liz Leer joined her on the All-PL First Team, marking the first time in program history the Eagles have had two first team selections as a member of the Patriot League. Finally, Corkery became the second AU women’s basketball coach to be named Patriot League Coach of the Year. Melissa McFerrin received the honor following the 2008 campaign. In 2008-09, Corkery led American to a 19-12 record, which included the program’s second consecutive postseason appearance. The Eagles’ 10-5 non-conference record was the best in school history, and their 19 total victories were the most since the 1997-98 campaign. The Eagles defeated two NCAA Tournament teams, Drexel and Lehigh, during the season. Additionally, Corkery coached three All-Patriot League selections in 2008-09, including First Team performer Michelle Kirk and All-Rookie Team honorees Ebony Edwards and Lisa Strack. Corkery oversaw the largest women’s basketball crowd in school history when 1,177 fans attended the home game against Lehigh on February 7, 2009.

as AU’s associate head coach during the 2007-08 campaign. In total, Corkery has been on the AU staff for five seasons. In 2007, he was elevated from assistant coach and recruiting coordinator to associate head coach. With the promotion, Corkery assumed additional responsibilities both on and off the court.
