Seven BIG EAST women’s basketball players were named to the 25-member 2012-13 Preseason “Wade Watch” list; the BIG EAST’s seven student-athletes led all conferences. Connecticut led all schools with three players named to the list: junior center Stephanie Dolson, junior guard Bria Hartley and sophomore forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis. Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame, Sr., G), Anna Martin (DePaul, Sr., G), Sugar Rodgers (Georgetown, Sr., G) and Shoni Schimmel (Louisville, Jr., G) also represented the BIG EAST on the team.

For the second-straight year, the BIG EAST had half of the teams in the Final Four as Notre Dame and Connecticut again met in the national semifinals. Last year, Notre Dame won the matchup, advancing to the title game. The two teams met three times entering the Final Four with the Irish taking both regular season meetings and the Huskies winning the BIG EAST Championship title to earn the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Championship. This year marked the fifth time the league has had more than one school reach the national semifinals.

First Round Success In the last two years, BIG EAST teams have combined to post a 21-1 record in the first round of the postseason. In 2011, the BIG EAST compiled a perfect 9-0 record in the First Round of the NCAA tournament, winning each game by an average of 15.1 ppg. In the WNIT, Syracuse won its first round game to make the combined total 10-0. In 2012, between the NCAA and WNIT First Rounds, BIG EAST teams went 11-1 (7-1 in the NCAA Championship and 4-0 in the WNIT First Round).

BIG EAST in the Title Game

Pair of No. 1’s

The 2012 season marked the sixth straight year a BIG EAST school has advanced to the Final Four and the third time in the last four years the BIG EAST had two representatives (UConn and Louisville met in 2009).

The 2012 tournament marks the second time in league history that a pair of No. 1 seeds came from the BIG EAST. The last time that happened was 2001, when Notre Dame and Connecticut were both No. 1 seeds. The two met in the national semifinal in Saint Louis, Mo., and the Irish won, eventually winning the title. In 2012, Connecticut, which earned the league’s automatic berth as the BIG EAST Championship winner, was the No. 1 in the Kingston Region. Notre Dame, which earned an at-large bid, was No. 1 in the Raleigh Region. Both teams won their region.

19 NCAA Wins in 2011 The league totaled 19 wins during the 2011 NCAA tournament and tied the highest mark a conference has had during one tournament along with the ACC (2006) and the SEC (1996 and 1997).

Winning Percentage In all postseason games prior to March 19, BIG EAST teams held a .929 winning percentage, posting a 13-1 record. In the NCAA Championship First Round, BIG EAST teams went 7-1. Through WNIT games played before March 19, BIG EAST teams recorded a spotless 6-0 mark.

Diggins, Hayes Top Wooden Award Finalists Two of the 15 Finalists for the John R. Wooden Award hold BIG EAST ties as Notre Dame junior Skylar Diggins and Connecticut senior Tiffany Hayes were named to the ballot.

Beating The Competition For the seventh straight year, the BIG EAST complied a nonconference win percentage over .700 during the regular-season going 159-55 (.743).

Final Four Variety The BIG EAST has seen four different teams advance to the Final Four since 2007, more than any other conference. Rutgers (2007), Connecticut (2008-12), Louisville (2009) and Notre Dame (2011-12). By comparison, The Big 12 has sent three programs (Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas A&M), the SEC has sent two (Tennessee and LSU), while the Pac12 (Stanford) and ACC (North Carolina) have each sent one.

McGraw Selected as Naismith Finalist

Another Top-25 Matchup

For the fifth time, Notre Dame women’s basketball head coach Muffet McGraw was selected as a finalist for the Naismith National Coach of the Year award. McGraw was chosen as a finalist for the Naismith Award in 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2005, and she won in 2001 when the Fighting Irish won their first NCAA national championship.

Connecticut and Notre Dame’s NCAA contest marked the 24th top-25 matchup of the 2011-12 season. With 26 the year before, the BIG EAST has 50 meetings in the last two seasons.

Notre Dame Raises Over $200,000 The Fighting Irish held their annual Pink Zone game on Feb. 12 (known nationally by its new label, Play4Kay), to raise money for breast cancer research, collecting a school-record $204,682 this season (divided between the local Foundation of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center and the national Kay Yow Cancer Fund charity).

30 Wins and Counting The league had a pair of 30-wins teams last year as Notre Dame (35) and Connecticut (33) marked the fifth time the feat has been achieved in conference history. 1995-96: UConn (33-1) and Notre Dame (31-7) 2000-01: UConn (32-3) and Notre Dame (34-2) 2008-09: UConn (39-0) and Louisville (34-5) 2010-11: UConn (35-1) and Notre Dame (31-8) 2011-12: UConn (33-5) and Notre Dame (35-4)

Georgetown Director of Athletics Lee Reed named Keith Brown as the new head coach on April 30. Brown becomes just the seventh head coach in the history of the program. He is no stranger to the program serving as the top assistant and head of recruiting for the past five seasons. Red Storm Director of Athletics Chris Monasch announced on Apr. 27 that Joe Tartamella – whose nine-year coaching tenure as an assistant at St. John’s included four NCAA Tournament appearances – will be the eighth head coach in St. John’s University’s 38-year program history. Providence College Athletics Director Bob Driscoll announced on April 9 that Susan Robinson Fruchtl was named head coach. Robinson Fruchtl became the ninth head coach in the program’s 38-year history, replacing Phil Seymore, who resigned in March to pursue other options. Robinson Fruchtl comes to Providence College after spending the last five seasons at St. Francis University (Pa.) from 2007-12. She guided the Red Flash to three-consecutive Northeast Conference Championship Games, captured two conference titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and 2011.

2013 NCAA Sites The NCAA has selected the first- and second-round and regional sites for the 2013 women’s Division I basketball championship, with three BIG EAST schools among the choices. Schools chosen to host those games include Baylor, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Duke, Gonzaga, Iowa, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Ohio State, Stanford, St. John’s, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. St. John’s will be making its first appearance as a host while it will be UConn’s 18th time.

Impressive Coaching Resumes The BIG EAST is the only conference to have three active head coaches in the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame as Seton Hall head coach Anne Donovan joins C. Vivian Stringer and Geno Auriemma as double Hall of Famers, as all three are also members of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2011, Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, increasing the tally to four BIG EAST coaches. McGraw signed a 10-year contract extension with the Fighting Irish over the summer, keeping her in South Bend through the 2021-22 season. Stringer was introduced as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2009 and she was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2001. Auriemma was inducted in the Naismith’s and Women’s Basketball’s Class of 2006. Donovan was inducted as a player in the Class of 1995 to the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame and into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 1999. Donovan won the Naismith Trophy as the national Player of the Year in 1983 while a studentathlete at Old Dominion and newly-announced Providence head coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl was a Wade Trophy Award winner as a player at Penn State. Rutgers head coach C. Vivian Stringer was awarded the Maggie Dixon Courage Award on Dec. 13, 2009.

INCLUDING

C

oming off a season that saw eight teams advance to the NCAA Championship and four teams to the WNIT, the BIG EAST Conference announced its 2012-13 women’s basketball schedule, including record-setting television coverage. The 2012-13 television schedule features every team for the seventh consecutive year and continues to be one of the top television slates in the nation. The league’s overall exposure includes one game on CBS Sports, 10 games on ESPN/ESPN2, 14 games on ESPNU and 13 games on CBS Sports Network for a total of 97 appearances, the highest mark for BIG EAST women’s basketball. The Conference will have a presence on CBS Sports for the 18th straight year. Connecticut will host Notre Dame on Jan. 5 at 4 p.m. ET, in what is primed to be a top-25 matchup. The two teams met four times last year. After the Fighting Irish swept the regular season series, with one of the games decided in overtime on their way to the regular-season crown, the teams met in the BIG EAST Championship title game with Connecticut taking home the tournament Championship trophy. For the second straight year, the Huskies and Fighting Irish met in the Final Four, with Notre Dame advancing to the title game. The BIG EAST’s 15 appearances on ESPN/ESPN2 include four regular-season conference games. All of the games also will be simulcast on ESPN3. This year’s schedule also is highlighted by a pair of ESPN2 events, the Women’s Jimmy V Classic and Play 4Kay, formerly known as WBCA Pink Zone. Connecticut faces Maryland at home on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. ET, in the Jimmy V Classic. After Maryland defeated 2011 NCAA champion Texas A&M, the Terrapins advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight, where they were defeated by Notre Dame. Play 4Kay will feature five BIG EAST teams on ESPN2 and two teams on ESPNU, showing two conference tilts and a nonconference contest. On Feb. 17, Marquette hosts Notre Dame at 2:30 p.m. ET prior to Cincinnati visiting St. John’s at 5 p.m. ET. The following day, Connecticut will host 2012 NCAA champion Baylor at 9 p.m. That game is also part of the ESPN2 Big Monday lineup.

GAMES ON

ESPN/ESPN2

Including the Connecticut vs. Baylor tilt, BIG EAST Conference women’s basketball will have five Big Monday games this season televised on ESPN2. The Big Monday tipoff will come on Jan. 21 as Connecticut hosts Duke at 7 p.m. The Huskies played in Durham, N.C., last year, and posted a 61-45 victory. On Jan. 28, Notre Dame will play at Tennessee. Notre Dame and Tennessee met last year, with the Irish recording a 72-44 victory. On Feb. 11, Louisville will play at Notre Dame at 9 p.m. On March 4, Connecticut will play at Notre Dame at 7 p.m. Connecticut will play at Texas A&M on Nov. 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. Last year, when the two teams met in Hartford, Conn., the Huskies picked up their 91st straight win at home with an 81-51 victory. At the time of the game, UConn was ranked No. 2 and Texas A&M was ranked No. 8. The Conference will have “Game of the Week” packages on the CBS Sports Network and the BIG EAST Network. ESPNU also will televise numerous games on Sundays during the regular season. The BIG EAST will appear on ESPNU 26 times, including seven regular-season conference games, two nonconference matchups, three of the BIG EAST Championship quarterfinals on March 10 and the BIG EAST Championship semifinal rounds on March 11. ESPNU can now be seen in more than 73 million homes and will showcase at least six BIG EAST teams throughout the conference season. In nonconference action, Baylor will play at Notre Dame on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. The game is a rematch of the NCAA Final Four title game. The Bears won an unprecedented 40th game in Denver, Colo., last season for the title. UConn will play at Stanford on Dec. 29 at 4 p.m. After Stanford broke Connecticut’s 90-game winning streak in 2010, the Huskies exacted revenge at the XL Center with a 68-58 win last November. Conference action on ESPNU begins on Jan. 6 with St. John’s at Rutgers and runs most Sundays through Feb. 24, wrapping up the regular season with Notre Dame at DePaul before televising the BIG EAST Championship Quarterfinals.

CBS Sports Network will continue its “Conference Game of the Week” broadcasts. The BIG EAST’s 26 appearances will consist of 13 conference games, including four doubleheaders. The schedule begins on Jan. 8 when Rutgers plays at Louisville at 7 p.m. Eleven of the 13 conference games will be on Tuesdays. The first doubleheader is on Jan. 15, as four NCAA Championship teams battle in Georgetown at Notre Dame at 7 p.m., followed by Louisville at Connecticut at 9 p.m. The games run through March 4, the last day of the regular season. Syracuse hosts Louisville at 9 p.m. to wrap up the league schedule. The CBS Sports Network schedule features 11 of 15 BIG EAST schools. The BIG EAST Network Game of the Week regional television package is in its seventh year and will feature a total of 28 appearances by league schools on Saturdays, including all four games of the BIG EAST Championship Second Round on March 9 and one quarterfinal game on March 10. ESPN Regional Television will once again produce every game and SportsNet New York (SNY) will carry the entire package live in the nation’s No. 1 media market. For the fifth time in six years, all of the BIG EAST schools are featured in the BIG EAST Network Game of the Week package.

The BIG EAST Conference

T

2012-13 academic year is the 34th in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship.

Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 32 national championships in six different sports and 137 student-athletes have won individual national titles through 2011-12.

The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth and continues to make strides in improving the quality and depth of the storied league.

BIG EAST basketball squads have captured 11 titles in the last 13 years. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. The BIG EAST placed three men’s basketball teams in the Final Four in 1985, the only time this has occurred in NCAA history.

The BIG EAST Conference has been always been driven by lofty goals. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2011-12 year was no different. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Georgetown women’s cross country team captured its first NCAA Championship. The win by the Hoyas marked the third-straight year a BIG EAST team has won the women’s cross country championship, with Villanova winning the past two. The Louisville men’s basketball team advanced to the Final Four in New Orleans. Connecticut field hockey reached the NCAA semifinals, as did the Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team. The Irish women’s basketball team and Syracuse women’s lacrosse team each reached the NCAA finals. USF softball reached the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla., for the first time in program history. The BIG EAST placed two teams in the NCAA Women’s Final Four for the third time in the last four years as Connecticut joined Notre Dame in Denver, with the Fighting Irish advancing to the national title game for the second-straight year. BIG EAST student-athletes won five NCAA championships. Sheila Reid won her second-straight NCAA Women’s Cross Country title. Syracuse hurdler Jarret Eaton won the 60-meter hurdle championship in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship. Notre Dame won the distance medley relay at the same championship. Georgetown’s Emily Infeld won the 3,000-meter run. Carlos Almeida of Louisville won the 200-yard breaststroke at the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Three BIG EAST teams won bowl games, while the BIG EAST representative in the Bowl Championship Series won its bowl game for the fourth time in the last seven years- a streak that includes wins against the ACC, Big 12 and SEC champions.

The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven-school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad-based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student-athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has had the good fortune to have outstanding leadership. The BIG EAST primarily was the brainchild of Dave Gavitt, who was the conference’s first Commissioner. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990.

Connecticut – 2012 BIG EAST Champions

The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing – the University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, the University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in 18 of the nation’s top 50 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain more than one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. The BIG EAST will welcome UCF, Houston, Memphis, SMU and Temple in all sports in 2013-14. Temple football will join the league in 2012, with Boise State and San Diego State joining the following year and Navy in 2015.

Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. The conference currently crowns champions in 24 sports.

The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student-athletes. The conference has enjoyed longstanding relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past nine years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball.

Commissioner Mike Aresco

M

ike Aresco, one of the most influential leaders in collegiate sports television, was named Commissioner of The BIG EAST Conference on August 14, 2012.

Aresco came to the BIG EAST from CBS Sports where he was Executive Vice President, Programming. He was responsible for all college sports programming for CBS Sports and CBS Sports Network. Aresco oversaw the acquisition and management of CBS Sports college properties, including the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, regularseason college basketball and football, conference basketball championship games, football bowl games and other programming. His responsibilities included game selection and scheduling, day-to-day operations, contract negotiations, identification of future acquisitions, development of programming strategies and coordination of new media and marketing initiatives. Aresco played an integral role in the landmark deal that created the CBS Sports-Turner Broadcasting partnership, which resulted in the acquisition of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship rights through 2024. He managed the complex 14-year agreement that provides expanded national broadcast and cable coverage of the NCAA basketball championship. Aresco also was instrumental in the CBS Television Network’s groundbreaking bundled rights agreement with the NCAA which granted CBS exclusive rights to the NCAA Tournament from 2003 through 2010. The 2010 NCAA Championship won a Sports Emmy in the Outstanding Playoff Coverage category. Aresco also played a key role in negotiating the marketing agreement that coincided with the original NCAA deal and was instrumental in creating a partnership with IMG and the NCAA to assist in acquiring new NCAA corporate sponsors. He also was a significant contributor in the development of new media platforms for the NCAA Championship, including March Madness on Demand, CBS’ highly successful streaming platform. In 2008, Aresco negotiated a historic 15-year agreement with the Southeastern Conference to televise the league’s football and basketball games. The agreement also provided multiple new media rights for CBS, CBS Sports Network and CBS Interactive. He forged numerous basketball agreements with major conferences, including the BIG EAST, ACC, Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12. Aresco recently negotiated 10-year extensions of the ArmyNavy and Notre Dame-Navy football rivalries. Aresco was the creator and executive producer of The Tony Barnhart Show, the criticallyacclaimed college football show, as well as Courtside with Seth Davis, a highly-regarded weekly show devoted to college basketball, both of which air on the CBS Sports Network. In 2004, he was appointed by the late NCAA President Myles Brand to the Basketball Partnership, a select panel whose mission was to explore ways to improve and promote college basketball. He is a charter member of the steering committee of the Columbia University/New York City Chapter of the National Football Foundation and serves on the board of the National Sports Marketing Network. Aresco joined CBS Sports from ESPN where he was responsible for overseeing the acquisition, scheduling and development of long-term strategies for all ESPN college sports properties. Earlier in his tenure at ESPN, he was responsible for programming a wide variety of sports properties, including College Football Association, Big 10, and Pac-10 college football, NCAA events, including early rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament, the College World Series and various professional sports events, including thoroughbred racing, Top Rank Boxing, CFL football, Australian Rules Football, rodeo and yachting. He was the architect of ESPN’s signature Thursday night college football series and helped develop ESPN’s Bowl Week. He joined ESPN in 1984 as Counsel and was named Assistant General Counsel in 1988 before moving to the programming department. Aresco is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Tufts University (B.A., magna cum laude, history), the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts (M.A., international relations), where he held a John Moors Cabot Scholarship, and the University of Connecticut Law School (J.D.). He practiced law privately in Hartford, Conn., for several years. Aresco, 62, and his wife, Sharon, have two adult sons, Matthew, an Emmy-nominated television producer who owns a production company in Connecticut, and Brett, an aspiring actor who lives in New York City.

DOUG MOSLEY Assistant Sports Communications Director

Cincinnati has the returning leadership of eight letterwinners, three of which started 20 games or more last year. Dayeesha Hollins, who redshirted the 2010-11 season, returns after leading the squad with 14.8 ppg. Hollins, an all-BIG With an overtime victory over Duquesne in the WNIT on March 16, 2012, the Bearcats won their first postseason game in 10 years. The team’s 16 wins and six BIG EAST victories were the most in five years and highest under the direction of head coach Jamelle Elliott, who enters her fourth season in 2012-13.

EAST second team selection, also added 4.1 rpg and 3.5 apg. Kayla Cook started all 32 games last year, averaging 6.1 ppg. Tiffany Turner averaged 6.0 ppg and 5.5 rpg in 31 appearances and Jeanise Randolph came off the bench to give the Bearcats 6.5 ppg and 5.4 rpg.

Who’s Gone The Bearcats lost four letterwinners, including two starters from last year’s squad. UC looks to replace graduated seniors Chanel Chisholm and Bjonee Reaves. Chisholm led the team with 5.8 rpg, while Reaves was the team’s best 3-point shooter at 35.3 percent. Chisolm started all 32 games, averaging 8.7 ppg. Reaves played in all 32 games, averaging 13.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg and 2.7 apg.

Storylines UC returns its best shooter in forward Jeanise Randolph, who made a team-best 56.8 percent (63-111) of her shots. After sitting out for the first 11 games of the season due to injury, she finished second on the team in rebounding (5.4 rpg) and fourth in scoring (6.5 ppg). Cincinnati welcomes four newcomers in Shelbi Chandler (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike), Alexis Durley (Houston, Texas/Andy Dekaney), Destini Feagin, and Jasmine Whitfield (Crestwood, Ky./South Oldham).

News & Notes The BIG Picture The Huskies won the BIG EAST Championship title for the fifth-straight season. The team has 19 regular season titles and 18 tournament crowns. Connecticut finished 33-5 in 2011-12 to post its seventh-straight 30-win season. The Huskies eclipsed the 30-win plateau for the 17th time in the last 19 years. UConn reached the Final Four for the 13th time in program history, the secondmost appearances in the sport.

Who’s Returning The Huskies have four starters returning for the 2012-13 season. Connecticut’s sixth man, BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis led the team last year with 15.0 ppg, 93 3-pointers and a .833 free throw percentage. Junior guard Bria Hartley averaged

The Huskies have earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Championship 15 times. UConn has been a No. 1 seed in each of the last six years dating back to 2008. The Huskies are 67-9 all-time as the top seed, along with six national championships and 11 Final Four appearances.

14.0 ppg, third on the team, and was second on the team with 140 assists. Junior center Stefanie Dolson averaged 10.4 ppg, had a team-high 57 blocks and led the squad on the boards with 6.0 rpg. Senior Kelly Faris led the team with 165 assists and redshirt-senior Caroline Doty (5.0 ppg) rounds out the returning starters.

Who’s Gone

UConn lost one starter to graduation, Tiffany Hayes. Hayes won two national championships and competed in four Final Fours. She was honored as the 2012 Kingston Regional Most Outstanding Player and earned Third Team All-America status from the Associated Press. Hayes was selected with the fourteenth pick of the WNBA Draft by the Atlanta Dream. Hayes, a two-time All-BIG EAST First Team selection, finished her career at UConn with a 147-7 overall record and averaged 14.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

Storylines Head Coach Geno Auriemma won his 800th game on March 6, 2012 in the BIG EAST Championship final against Notre Dame. He reached 800 wins in 928 games, the fewest games all-time. Connecticut’s recruiting class of Moriah Jefferson, Breanna Stewart and Morgan Tuck was the top-rated crop by most recruiting services. All three freshmen were selected to the USA Basketball U18 National Team, which won the gold medal at the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship in August. Stewart was honored as the National Player of the Year by Gatorade.

ALICIA POPE Assistant Director Athletics Communication

News & Notes The BIG Picture DePaul returns 84 percent of its scoring from last season, including the BIG EAST’s leading scorer in senior guard Anna Martin, who averaged 19.1 points per game. DePaul ranked 23rd in the country in scoring in 2011-12 with 72.0 points per game. The Blue Demons also return 87 percent of their rebounding, including the BIG EAST’s leading rebounder, senior forward Katherine Harry, who grabbed 9.5 boards per game and broke a McGrath-Phillips Arena record with 20 rebounds against Louisville on Jan. 31, 2012.

Who’s Returning Anna Martin returns for her senior season. Martin, who was not on the Preseason All-BIG EAST team in 2011-12, was a unanimous All-BIG

EAST First Team selection. Katherine Harry enters her season with 804 rebounds which ranks sixth all-time, averaging 7.8 rebounds per game throughout her career. Sophomore guard Brittany Hrynko, who led DePaul in assists returns for her sophomore season, and will be joined in the by Chanise Jenkins, who was sidelined with an ankle injury two games into the season after earning Maggie Dixon Classic alltournament honors.

Who’s Gone DePaul loses two starters in Deanna Ortiz and Keisha Hampton. Hampton, a unanimous Preseason All-Conference selection prior to the start of last year, averaged 16.6 ppg and 4.6 rpg before a season-ending injury. Ortiz averaged 4.6 ppg and played in 32 games.

Storylines The Blue Demons return 84-percent of their scoring, led by senior Anna Martin, who averaged a league-leading 19.1 ppg. Senior Katherine Harry, the league’s leading rebounder at 9.5 boards per game, also returns to anchor the Blue Demons’ 1-2 punch.

DePaul returns six of the seven top players from last year, including All-American Anna Martin. Adding to its rotation will be Alexa Gallagher and Chanise Jenkins who missed 2011-12 with injuries, both will be freshman. Megan Podkowa, Brooke Schulte and Brandi Harvey-Carr will also be in the Blue Demon freshmen class. Junior transfer Kelsey Smith will sit out the fall quarter but will be eligible to play following DePaul’s final exams in November. Brittany Hrynko was the first freshman to lead DePaul in assists since the 1997-98 season.

News & Notes The BIG Picture Marquette will be looking to bounce back after 2011-12 saw its streak of nine consecutive postseason appearances end when the Golden Eagles suffered their first losing season since the 2000-01 season. MU’s 14-17 overall record marked just the second time in the Terri Mitchell era the team has suffered a losing season. Marquette will be leaning on its upperclassmen to set the tone for the season. Senior Sarina Simmons is MU’s lone senior, while the junior class boasts four members. Point guard Gabi Minix, who ranked second in the BIG EAST in assists is back as MU’s floor general.

Who’s Returning The Golden Eagles will look to Katherine Plouffe for her versatility again in 2012-13.

The Golden Eagles return all 13 players from last year’s team, including 11 letterwinners. With just one senior (Sarina Simmons), Marquette has a solid core which should shape the team for years to come.

Plouffe led Marquette in three statistical categories in 2011-12, including scoring (13.5 ppg), rebounding (8.1 rpg) and minutes (33.7 mpg). Simmons hopes to finish her final season at Marquette on a high note. A 2009 All-BIG EAST Freshman team selection, she averaged 8.9 points and 6.9 rebounds, and blocked a team best 43 shots last season.

Who’s Gone Marquette returns all five starters and all 11 letterwinners from a season ago that finished 14-17 overall and 4-12 in BIG EAST Conference play.

Storylines Marquette added two guards to bolster its backcourt rotation. Joining the Golden Eagles are rookies Brooklyn Pumroy and Ashley Santos. Santos was a member of the U18 and U16 Puerto Rican National Team. First year assistant coach Tyler Summitt joins Terri Mitchell’s staff. Summitt is the only son of legendary Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt who recently retired and is now head coach emeritus for the Lady Vols.

News & Notes The BIG Picture The Irish enter 2012-13 coming off a second consecutive trip to the NCAA national championship game, a BIG EAST Conference regular season title and a season that featured 22 school records.For the second-straight year, the Fighting Irish knocked off BIG EAST Championship winner Connecticut in the Final Four to reach the national title game. ND won a program-record 35 games were ranked in the top five in both major natoinal polls for all 19 weeks en route to picking up the school’s first outright regular season title. Notre Dame finished fifth in the country in attendance this season with an average of 8,571 fans.

Who’s Returning The Fighting Irish will have two starters and eight veterans back, led by senior guard Skylar Diggins. A three-time All-American and the

Skylar Diggins is 274 points away from becoming the fourth 2,000-point scorer in school history. She needs 596 points to catch current Notre Dame associate coach Beth Cunningham as the program’s all-time leading scorer.

reigning BIG EAST Player of the Year, Diggins heads into her final season already appearing among the top 10 on nine Fighting Irish statistical charts. Junior guard Kayla McBride returns after her first full season at Notre Dame, in which she averaged 11.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, while starting 36 times. McBride was a member of both the BIG EAST Championship and NCAA Raleigh Regional all-tournament teams.

Who’s Gone

The Fighting Irish lost three starters in Natalie Novosel, Devereaux Peters and Brittany Mallory. Novosel averaged 15.2 ppg, 4.1 rpg and 2.0 apg. Peters averaged 11.8 ppg, 9.3 rpg and 2.3 bpg. Mallory added 5.8 ppg, 2.7 rpg and 2.3 apg. Novosel and Peters were two-time All-America selections. Novosel, who started all 39 games last season, was a first-round draft pick by the Washington Mystics (eighth overall), while Peters was a first-round draft pick by the Minnesota Lynx (third overall). Last year, Peters was the only BIG EAST player to rank among the top 10 in the conference in three major defensive categories.

Storylines Complementing Notre Dame’s returning core will be a group of three outstanding freshmen that collectively were ranked as the No. 3 incoming class in the nation by All-Star Girls Report. The incoming class is highlighted by Jewell Loyd, a consensus high school All-America selection and one of five finalists for the Naismith High School Player of the Year award in 2011-12, Loyd averaged 24.8 points, 11.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game during her prep career, adding 46 doubledoubles in her final 62 high school games.

STACEY BRANN Assistant Athletic Director/ Women’s Basketball

News & Notes The BIG Picture After losing a host of close games in 2011-12, including an overtime defeat by then-No. 20/19 Louisville, the Panthers showed promise at the close of the season. Pitt welcomes back four starters and eight letterwinners to lead the climb back to the top of the Big East ladder. One player to watch will be Loliya Briggs, the highest ranked recruit in last season’s highlytouted freshmen class. Injured last summer playing with the Nigerian National Team and sitting out the entire 2011-12 season, Briggs is an explosive guard who will add depth to the Panthers’ still-young roster.

Who’s Returning

BIG EAST All-Freshman team selection Brianna Kiesel returns to the court after leading the Sophomore Brianna Kiesel was a unanimous selection to the BIG EAST All-Freshman Team last season. She played and started all 30 games for the Panthers, the only player to earn a start in every contest. Kiesel led team in points (13.6 per game), assists (3.0) and minutes (36.3).

Panthers in scoring last year with 13.6 points per game. She started all 30 games and also paced the team in assists (89), and free throws made (106). Joining her in the backcourt is returnee Ashlee Anderson, who chipped in 10.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 2011-12.

Who’s Gone

Pitt loses leading rebounder Leeza Burdgess, who grabbed 7.2 boards per game last season. Burdgess played in 29 games, averaging 6.3 ppg in 26 minutes per game. She had a .442 field goal percentage and added 23 blocks.

Storylines After a winless conference season, the Panthers came within seconds of knocking off No. 9 seed USF in the BIG EAST Championship first round in a 60-69 defeat. Freshman Brianna Kiesel led the Panthers with 24 points, scoring 15 of those in the second half as Pitt overcame a 21-point deficit. Kiesel’s output in her final game as a freshman marked her seventh game with 20 or more points. Kiesel also vaulted herself into the Pitt record book, coming in at No. 5 all-time for points in a single by a first-year player.

ROBERT G. DRISCOLL, JR. SUSAN ROBINSON FRUCHTL JENNIFER RYNEARSON Head Coach Athletic Director Sports Information Director

News & Notes The BIG Picture The Friars will embark on a new era under the direction of first-year Head Coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl. Robinson Fruchtl was named Head Coach on April 9, 2012, replacing Phil Seymore, who resigned in March 2012. Last season, the Friars got off to a respectable 4-4 start in BIG EAST Conference regular-season play, including wins over #20/18 DePaul and West Virginia. However, the Friars were tripped up down the stretch, finishing out the last eight games with a 1-7 mark. At season’s end, the Friars had compiled a 5-11 BIG EAST record.

Who’s Returning Providence returns six letter winners. Symone Roberts, Brianna Edwards, Chanise Head coach Susan Robinson Fructal graduated from Penn State in 1992 and left as the schools’ all-time leading scorer with 2,253 points. She is one of only two players in Penn State history to accumulate 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. In 1992 she won the Wade Trophy, was named a consensus AllAmerican and earned GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.

Baldwin and Danielle Pearson saw some time in the starting lineup, but in nine games or fewer. Senior Symone Roberts is the team’s leading returning scorer from a season ago. Roberts finished third in scoring last season with 8.2 points per game.

Who’s Gone The Friars will look to fill the void left by the departed seniors Teya Wright, Rachel Barnes and Lola Wells. Wright and Barnes finished atop the statistics in scoring, with 12.3 points and 10.7 points per game, respectively. Wright also hauled in a team-best 8.9 rebounds per game and led the BIG EAST Conference with 13 double-doubles.

Storylines Providence will open the doors to the newlyrenovated Alumni Hall/Mullaney Gymnasium. Over the summer, the facility underwent a complete overhaul, including new seating, scoreboard, air conditioning, lighting sound system, video boards, control room, media work area, etc.

News & Notes The BIG Picture Rutgers advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 10th-straight season and made its 14th appearance under head coach C. Vivian Stringer in 17 seasons. RU was one of only nine teams to qualify for the NCAA Tournament in each of the last 10 seasons. Rutgers returned to the national polls last season, starting the season No. 16 in the Associated Press poll and No. 17 in the ESPN/ USA Today Coaches poll. The Scarlet Knights ranked as high as seventh in the AP poll and eighth in the USA Today Coaches poll.

Who’s Returning Rutgers returns three starters, including redshirtsenior Chelsey Lee who missed the 2011-12 season due to a shoulder injury. The Scarlet

Head coach C. Vivian Stringer was the first coach in men’s or women’s basketball history to take three different schools to the Final Four (Cheyney in 1982, Iowa in 1993 and Rutgers, in 2000 and again in 2007).

Knights also return senior Monique Oliver, who played in 32 games last year, averaging 11.8 ppg and 7.3 rpg. She was third in the BIG EAST with 1.8 bpg. Classmate Erica Wheeler averaged 8.6 ppg, 2.8 rpg and 1.6 spg in 32 games last season for the Scarlet Knights.

Who’s Gone The Scarlet Knights lose two productive starters who ended their careers with All-BIG EAST honors. Khadijha Rushdan was named to the All-BIG EAST First Team and April Sykes to the Second Team. Rushdan averaged 13.1 ppg and 5.9 rpg. Sykes chipped in 12.9 ppg and 5.6 rebounds per game. RU also loses Nikki Speed, who played in all 32 games and started 20, and Jaymee Tucker, who saw action in 14 games.

Storylines Rutgers posted a 10-win home schedule, marking the 10th-straight year that RU has had 10 or more wins at the RAC. Stringer posted her 32nd 20-win season, second-most all-time. She has topped the 20-win mark in 13 of the last 15 seasons. Rutgers had four Scarlet Knights receive conference honors, the most since the 2007-08 season, which also had four players earn conference honors.

KRISTIN QUINN Assistant Director of Athletic Communications

News & Notes The BIG Picture Under the direction of first-year head coach Joe Tartamella, the 2012-13 Red Storm squad returns four starters, seven letterwinners and 79 percent of its scoring from the 2011-12 team that posted a 24-10 overall record and advanced to the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.

Who’s Returning The Red Storm’s senior class is led by point guard Nadirah McKenith, a 2011-12 All-BIG EAST second team selection and three-time Nancy Lieberman Award Watch list honoree, guard Shenneika Smith, a 2011-12 All-BIG EAST first team and BIG EAST All-Tournament team selection and guard Eugeneia McPherson, who emerged during her sophomore year as one of

During head coach Tartamella’s tenure as an assistant coach with the Red Storm, St. John’s advanced to nine BIG EAST Tournaments, two NIT appearances, four NCAA Tournaments, including the program’s first NCAA berth in more than 17 years during the 2005-06 campaign, and St. John’s first NCAA Regional Semifinal appearance in 2011-12.

the best sixth-men in the conference and moved up to a starting position in 2011-12. Smith and McKenith were also WBCA All-Region honorees.

Who’s Gone The Red Storm will lose the talents of forward Da’Shena Stevens, one of the most decorated student-athletes in program history. For her career, Stevens totaled 1,515 points, 815 rebounds and landed herself in six of St. John’s top-five records listings. Stevens was a two-time WBCA All-Region selection and three-time allBIG EAST honoree as well as the 2009 BIG EAST Freshman of the Year and 2012 BIG EAST Sportsmanship Award winner.

Storylines Nadirah McKenith, Shenneika Smith and Eugeneia McPherson were the Red Storm’s top three scorers in 2011-12, averaging 12.1 points per game and 35.4 points per game collectively. Smith, also named the 2012 All-Metropolitan Basketball Writers’ Association Player of the Year, led the way with 12.5 points, 6.4 rebounds per game. Also returning is Amber Thompson, a 2012 BIG EAST All-Rookie selection, and Mary Nwachukwu at the post position.

ANNE DONOVAN Head Coach

News & Notes The BIG Picture Head Coach Anne Donovan enters her third year at the helm with a mix of veteran leadership and new talent that could take Seton Hall to the next level. As the No. 15 seed, the Pirates lost a close BIG EAST Championship first round game, almost staging an upset before losing to No. 10 Villanova by a point in a 61-60 loss. The team will look to pick up its first postseason win under Donovan this year.

VINCENT NOVICKI Associate Director of Athletics Communications

The Pirates bring back a trio of seniors in Terry Green, Alexandra Maseko and Brittany Morris. Green and Morris come into the season ranked sixth (102) and eighth (99) respectively on the career 3-pointers made list. They both have an

Senior Terry Green is 8th all-time for Seton Hall in three-point field goals made with 99. The senior forward was the only BIG EAST player to shoot 100% from behind the arc in a game during the 2011-12 season, and did so on two separate occasions. Green went five-for-five against Drexel on Dec. 12, 2011 and seven-for-seven against DePaul on Jan. 28.

outside chance of breaking the record of 156 in their final campaigns. The Pirates will get 2011 All-BIG EAST Freshman selection Ka-Deidre Simmons back after she missed the 2011-12 campaign while recovering from a knee injury.

Who’s Gone There were two starters lost to graduation for the Pirates: Tajay Ashmeade and Jasmine Crew. Crew started all 31 games, leading the team with 18.6 ppg, 41 steals, 101 assists and an .843 free throw percentage. Ashmeade led the Pirates on the boards last season, averaging 8.8 rebounds per game. She also had a team-high 31 blocks and led the team in field goal percentage (.459).

Storylines Seton Hall welcomes seven new players into the fold for the 2012-13 season. The bevy of newcomers includes four freshmen and three junior college transfers. Forward Sidney Cook highlights the recruiting class. Cook was invited to USA Basketball U17 National Team Trials in 2010.

News & Notes The BIG Picture Syracuse is coming off its fifth-straight postseason appearance in 2011-12, going 22-15 and advancing to its first WNIT semifinals. SU ranked second in the NCAA in rebounding in 2011-12 (46.2 per game) and 11th in rebounding margin (+8.9). In the BIG EAST, the Orange led in rebounds per game, offensive rebounds per game (20.1) and was second in margin. Seventh-year head coach Quentin Hillsman coached his 200th game in the 2011-12 finale. He is 120-80 (.600) and became the fastest to 100 wins in SU history (165 games). He is 11-5 in postseason games.

Who’s Returning The Orange return four starters and eight of their nine top scorers. Guards Rachel Coffey,

The Orange have been to the postseason in each of the last five years. Last season Syracuse recorded four road wins during postseason play for the first time in school history.

Elashier Hall, Camen Tyson-Thomas and center Kayla Alexander all return after combining for 132 starts last year. Two-time AllBIG EAST center Kayla Alexander returns to lead the Orange. The senior ranked in the top 10 in the BIG EAST in scoring (14.8 ppg) and rebounding (7.5 rpg), and led the conference in blocked shots (2.6 bpg). Alexander enters the season fifth in career points at SU (1,451), 333 behind all-time leader Nicole Michael’s (2007-10) 1,784.

Who’s Gone SU loses leading point scorer Iasia Hemingway. She played in 37 games last year, averaging 14.9 points per game and grabbing 6.4 rebounds per game. She added 83 assists, 27 steals and shot 44 percent from the floor.
