we are drake Bulldogs Head Coach Amy Stephens Amy Stephens is in her seventh campaign as head women’s basketball coach at Drake University after guiding the Bulldogs to a 19-12 mark and a third-place finish in the Missouri Valley Conference in 2008-09. Stephens achieved two milestones during the 2008-09 campaign, recording her 300th career coaching victory as well as her 100th win at Drake. In her first six seasons, she boasts an NCAA Tournament appearance, a trio of WNIT berths and a 103-84 overall (.551) record. After opening the 2008-2009 MVC season losing two road games, the Bulldogs won 11 of their next 12 league contests, en route to a 12-6 mark and the third seed in the State Farm Insurance Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. Drake won the opening game of the tournament 68-57 over Northern Iowa before falling to second-seeded Creighton, 53-35, in the semifinal round. Experience and youth paced the Bulldogs with guard Jordann Plummer earning first team AllMVC honors and forward Rachael Hackbarth named to the MVC All-Freshman team. Senior forward Kelsey Keizer received ESPN The Magazine Academic all-district honors. The 2007-08 squad went 23-11 and won the program’s first regular season Missouri Valley Conference title since the 2000-01 campaign. The team was selected for the second straight year as the preseason favorite to win the MVC and surpassed the 20-win plateau for the first time since registering 25 victories during the 2001-02 campaign. The Bulldogs advanced to the title game of the MVC Tournament for the second consecutive season before falling to Illinois State, 70-62. Drake garnered its initial postseason tournament victory in six years with a 65-56 triumph over Green Bay in the opening round of the Women’s NIT. Seniors Jill Martin and Lindsay Whorton were recognized for their efforts on and off the court as they were each selected as first team All-MVC performers, making Drake the only league school with two first-team selections. Martin was named a first-team honoree for the third time, while it marked Whorton’s initial listing on the league’s top team.

Amy Stephens Head Coach Seventh Season Nebraska, 1991 Off the court, the duo was tabbed to the MVC Scholar-Athlete first team, while Whorton was honored as the MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and nationally was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America first team. Last December, Whorton was selected as one of 32 Americans chosen as a Rhodes Scholar for 2009. She was Drake’s first Rhodes Scholar recipient in 82 years. She received a twoyear scholarship to study at Oxford University in Oxford, England. She is studying social policy and evidence-based social intervention at Oxford. The 32 Rhodes Scholars were picked from 769 applicants endorsed by 207 colleges and universities nationwide. During the 2006-07 campaign, despite losing several key players to injury and illness, Stephens sparked the Bulldogs to the 2007 State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Tournament title and the school’s first NCAA Tournament berth since 2002. The NCAA Tournament is nothing new to Stephens, who in her 14 seasons as a head coach, has made eight NCAA Tournament appearances. Stephens has won 71 percent (.703) of her games as a head coach and car-

ries an impressive 300-127 career record. In home contests, her teams have posted a stellar 175-32 mark. Stephens may have done her best coaching job during the 2006-07 season as the preseason MVC Conference favorite was decimated by injury and illness, which caused Drake players to miss 74 games, including season-ending injuries to starters Jill Martin and Jordann Plummer. Through this adversity came triumph as she helped lead the Bulldogs to one of the more remarkable runs in Valley Tournament history. Seeded eighth and playing the tournament without first team All-MVC performer Brandy Dahir, who was diagnosed with mononucleosis, Drake won its opening round contest versus Wichita State, before dispatching regular season champion Southern Illinois in the quarterfinals. The Bulldogs followed suit with a 6158 win over Evansville and then earned The Valley’s NCAA Tournament berth with a thrilling 65-64 overtime triumph over Creighton. The Bulldogs advanced to their 10th NCAA Tournament and fought valiantly with eventual national champion Tennessee before falling to the Lady Volunteers in Pittsburgh, Pa. Lindsay Whorton, Dahir and Monique’ Jones earned All-MVC laurels. Lauren Dybing was named to the all-tournament squad, joining Whorton, who was tabbed as the tournament’s most outstanding player. Academics have been a source of pride for Stephens. During her tenure at Drake, eight Bulldogs on 12 occasions have garnered academic AllMVC laurels, including a trio of first team selections from Whorton. On the court, Drake student-athletes have earned 17 all-conference citations, including first team honorees Martin (2005, 2006 & 2008), Dahir (2007), Whorton (2008) and Plummer (2009), honorable mention recipients Linda Sayavongchanh (2004, 2005, 2006), Whorton (2007) and All-Freshman team members Martin (2004), Erin Dohrmann (2004), Dahir (2005),

UNK earned seven straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and also set an NCAA Division II record with an 87-game home-court winning streak that lasted from January of 1995 through November of 2001. During the 2008-09 season, Stephens was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference All-Time Top Women’s Basketball Coach to celebrate the RMAC’s 100th anniversary.

Stephens started 113 games during her career, earning Kodak All-District V and first-team AllBig Eight Conference honors as a senior in 1988-89. As a junior in 1987-88, Stephens led Huskers to their only Big Eight title and the first NCAA Tournament appearance in school history. In February of 2000, Stephens claimed one of five spots on Nebraska’s All-Century Team as part of the school’s celebration of 25 years of women’s intercollegiate athletics.
