Mayville State Comets (3-0)

Date: Saturday, Nov. 9 Time: 5 p.m. Location: Moorhead, MN

2013 Outlook MOORHEAD, Minn. -- With an experienced nucleus leading the way, the Minnesota State University Moorhead women’s basketball team opens the 2013-14 regular season on Saturday at home against Mayville State. Game time is 5 p.m. at Alex Nemzek Hall in Moorhead, Minn. Mayville and MSUM will meet for a 40th time with the Dragons holding a 27-12 series lead. The Dragons battled Division I foe Minnesota tough in an exhibition game last Saturday, trailing by just one point with 10 minutes left but the Gophers pulled away to a 69-54 win. The Dragons graduated only two seniors and return eight letterwinners -- including six different players who started games a year ago -- for the 2013-14 campaign, which is their 14th under Head Coach Karla Nelson (224-148 record). MSUM is led by three senior veterans. Senior forward Megan Strese, who was first-team All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference in 2012-13, led the Dragons with 14.4 points and 9.9 rebounds per game. She had 10 doubledoubles. Senior guard/forward Morgan Zabel, who was second-team All-NSIC last season, also returns after finishing second on the team in scoring at 12.9 points per game. Zabel also shot a team-best 89.4 percent from the free throw line. Senior guard Haley Thomforde is also back after leading the team with 93 assists last season. Thomforde returns at the point guard spot but can also play the two guard position. Freshman Natalie VanWyhe will also see time at the point with sophomore Jessy Noreen and freshman Hailey Wixo also looking to battle for time there.

Redshirt freshman Morgan Banasik is the early leader at the two-guard spot; she started in the Minnesota game. Thomforde and Noreen also could play at that spot. At the three guard/forward spot, Zabel returns after averaging 29.3 minutes per game a year ago. Sophomore Meghan Roehrich, who had a solid game at Minnesota, also will see time there with redshirt freshman Anna Rynda looking to contribute. Sophomore Savanna Handevidt started 21 games at the four position last year and returns. She had seven points in 19 minutes in the Minnesota game. Freshman Drew Sannes and sophomore Heather Strese also are pushing for time at the four position. Megan Strese will man the five spot; she had 16 points and eight rebounds at Minnesota. Sophomore Leah Miller, who appeared in all 28 games a year ago, and Heather Strese will provide depth at that position. Guard Ashley Bentz is expected to redshirt in 2013-14. About Mayville State The Comets are off to a 3-0 start in 201314.. They one wins over Canadian Mennonite (138-32), University of Winnipeg (94-82) and Brandon University (92-78). Marcisa McMillian leads the Comets at 20.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, while Liza Hoglo is averaging 20 points per game. Kay Laforet averages nearly eight assists per game. Mayville State averages 108 points per game and allows 64. Dennis Hutter is in his eighth season as Mayville State’s head coach.

Karla Nelson is in her 13th season as the Head Coach of the women’s basketball program and her 19th season as a member of the program’s coaching staff. The fastest coach in MSU Moorhead basketball history to reach the 200-win plateau, Nelson has accumulated a record of 208-136 entering the 2012-13 season. She has a school record 208 career victories, 12 consecutive winning seasons, three trips to the NCAA Division II post-season play, two national statistical titles, conference and region Coach of the Year endorsements and a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference championship. Nelson is fourth among NSIC coaches in total wins at their respective schools. Nelson has also coached 27 all-conference honorees in 12 seasons. She led Angie Jetvig to four AllAmerican teams including two consecutive Daktronics All-American honors in 2011 and 2012. Nelson also helped Megan Rettke and Alison Nash-Gerlach to second team Daktronics All-American honors in 2010. In 2004-05 Nelson and the Dragons claimed their first NSIC outright title, cracked the nation’s Top25 for the first time and received a NCAA Division II regional tournament invitation, the first time in the Head Coach’s career. MSUM finished 24-7 overall and set a Dragon single season record victories. Nelson was saluted as the NSIC Coach of the Year and Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Region 7 Coach of the Year as well. The WBCA Region 7 Coach of the Year honor was her second, the first coming during the 2002-03 season. The first coach at MSUM to debut with back-to-back winning campaigns, Nelson and the Dragons made their first appearance in the NCAA Division II North Central Regional in 2004-05, returned in 2006-07, and qualified for a third time in 2008-09. The Dragons of 2004-05 led the nation in rebounding for a second time in five years after a fifth place finish in 2003-04. The 2006-07 team reached the 20-win plateau for the fifth time in program history and made a serious run for the NSIC title, placing second in the league tournament and suffered an NCAA Tournament opening round loss to the University of North Dakota. In 2008-09, the Dragons were ranked as high as 13th in the nation, after going on an 11-0 run to open the season. The season ended in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, after picking up the first post-season win in program history.Nelson prodded her first club to a 15-12 overall record in 2000-01, the first winning season at MSUM in six years that also included a NSIC playoff invitation. The Dragons’ trip to the NSIC Tournament in 2011-12 was the 13th straight time to accomplish the feat. Only two other teams have done so, Winona State and Wayne State. Nelson served six seasons as the Dragons’ number one assistant from 1994-2000. When Jean Roise resigned in March of 2000, MSU Moorhead Director of Athletics Dr. Katy Wilson quickly promoted Nelson to the top post.
