WEEK 14 GAME NOTES DRAGONS TEAM RECORDS

QUICK HITS 7 Straight Weeks in Top 25 MSUM has climbed to No. 12 in the latest WBCA Coaches Poll, which is the Dragons’ highest ranking of the season. MSUM has been ranked seven consecutive weeks dating back to early January. The No. 12 ranking is the second-highest in school history. MSUM was ranked 11th in the coaches poll in Jan. 2008. Threes for Thorson Junior Cassidy Thorson has become one of the top three-point shooters in the nation this season. She ranks seventh in the nation at 3.21 threes per game, which is also best in the NSIC. She is fourth in the nation in three-pointers made (77) and 19th in the nation in three-point percentage. Thorson set a singlegame record with 8 three-pointers in a win over St. Cloud State in January. On the MSUM career charts, Thorson is ranked fourth with 145 career three-pointers made. Taking Care of the Ball MSUM is second in the nation in fewest turnovers per game (11.1), trailing only Michigan Tech in that category. The Dragons are sixth in the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.34, which is second-best in the NSIC. The Dragons have committed the sixth-fewest turnovers overall in the nation (267 in 24 games). Van Wyhe Sets the Point Senior point guard Natalie Van Wyhe isn’t necessarily known for her scoring but is known as an excellent defender and ball handler. She leads the NSIC in assist-to-turnover ratio at 2.87, which is seventh-best in the nation. She has moved into seventh in career assists at MSUM with 326 and is just nine behind sixth-place Kristin Engeldorf. Double-Doubles for Drew Junior forward Drew Sannes picked up her team-best 11th double-double of the season in the win over Minnesota Crookston on Saturday. The junior had 11 points and 15 rebounds. She is ranked 25th in the nation with 11 double doubles. Nelson One Win Away from 300 Dragon Head Coach Karla Nelson is nearing a career coaching milestone. She sits at 299 career wins, most of any women’s basketball coach in school history, and is just three away from the 300-career win milestone. The Dragons have had 17 straight winning seasons in the Nelson era. MSUM now has 20 victories for a fifth straight season. Block Party Junior forward Drew Sannes has worked her way into second place all-time in career blocks at MSUM and is second in the league at 2.5 blocks per game. Sannes is at 165 for her Dragon career after recording four blocks in each of the Dragons’ two wins. The all-time leader is Jessica Fesenmaier with 210.

Karla Nelson

17TH SEASON

Career Record: 299-180 15-16 NSIC North Champions

The 2016-17 season will be Karla Nelson’s 17th as head coach of the Minnesota State University Moorhead women’s basketball team. During her 16 years as head coach, MSUM has been a model of consistent success. Nelson has 16 straight winning seasons as MSUM’s mentor. The Dragons have qualified for the conference tournament for 17 consecutive years -- having never missed a conference tournament -- including in all 16 years of Nelson’s tenure. The fastest coach in MSU Moorhead basketball history to reach the 200-win plateau, Nelson has accumulated a record of 278-177 in 16 seasons. Nelson has also coached 37 all-conference honorees in 16 seasons. She led Angie Jetvig to four All-American 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. Also included in the success are 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. The 2015-16 campaign marked another strong season for MSUM. The Dragons finished 21-6 and earned the NSIC North Division title for the first time since the league split into two divisions. In the classroom MSUM earned WBCA Academic Top 25 honors, posting the 20th-best GPA in Division II.

COACHING STAFF

In 2013-14, MSUM finished 16-11, highlighted by wins over regional qualifiers Wayne State (ranked No. 8 at the time) and Concordia-St. Paul. The Dragons also went a perfect 2-0 at Concordia-St. Paul’s Radisson Hotel Roseville Classic in November. MSUM senior forward Morgan Zabel was named the tournament MVP. Zabel was named to the All-NSIC first team while senior forward Megan Strese was named to the All-NSIC second team. Both players surpassed 1,000 points for their careers during the season; Strese left MSUM ranked 11th alltime in scoring at 1,228 points while Zabel finished in 15th at 1,115 points. The 2012-13 season saw a young Dragon team with just two seniors earn a 16-12 mark and a first-round win in the NSIC tournament. MSUM also earned a win over No. 17-ranked Augustana, which ended up qualifying for the NCAA Division II Final Four. Also in 2012-13, senior Marisa Yernatich set the new career three-point record at MSUM, while junior Megan Strese earned first-team All-NSIC honors. Junior Morgan Zabel was an All-NSIC second-team selection. 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 fifthplace 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. In 2004-05 Nelson and the Dragons claimed their first NSIC outright title, cracked the nation’s Top-25 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. Nelson served six seasons as the Dragons’ No. 1 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. In addition to her basketball duties at MSUM, Nelson served as head softball coach at MSU Moorhead for five seasons. She inherited a program in serious decline in 1996 and led the Dragons to a surprising 21-19 finish that included a 9-5 NSIC record. Surely some of Nelson’s coaching acumen can be traced to her alma mater, University of North Dakota. A four-year basketball letterwinner, Nelson was a three-year captain and was a three-year fixture in the Sioux backcourt. Nelson and the Sioux built a 22-6 record and qualified for the NCAA Division II playoffs as a junior and finished 19-9 as a senior. Nelson was twice honored as UND’s Best Defensive Player.
