Quality Time Together It was a very successful off-season for the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball program. The Eagles not only made huge strides on the court last year, but they were also seen together in the Ypsilanti community and at University events during the summer months. “This past summer was the best since I have been at Eastern Michigan. Our players did a lot together as a team, and that will hopefully translate to positive things on the floor. We had opportunities to give back to this wonderful community and university, meet a lot of great people, and highlight our young ladies,”said Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert. “The players volunteered in the community, went to Cedar Point, helped with our summer camps and attended University events. We are very are proud and excited about this group.”

E-Hoops Group Over the past year, a leadership group of former Eastern Michigan University basketball players, led by former great Earle Higgins, has developed plans to launch the E-Hoops Group to make a significant effort to reconnect all former Eastern Michigan basketball players back to the program. “One of the E-Hoops Group’ missions is to be a proactive group,” Higgins explained. “ I will be acting as the liaison along with the alumni in supporting our group’s shared vision of delivering the highest level of participation from our alumni and former players in supporting our basketball programs. “We will work with the University, Athletic Director Dr. Derrick Gragg, and his staff, to create and development an open, honest, value-added involvement with contributions from every person connected to this great University to maximize better outcomes,” Higgins added. “ With strong support and participation from every corner we will help leverage our participation, resources and opportunities in bringing back the glory days of Eastern Michigan University basketball.”

Building a Legacy – 2009-10 Eastern Michigan University Women’s Basketball

13


2009-10 Outlook YPSILANTI, Mich.(EMUEagles.com) – Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert described her team’s 2008-09 season as a reloading year. It was her second season at the helm of the program, and Gilbert was faced with the tall task of fitting 10 newcomers into a scheme which had won a share of the Mid-American Conference West Division title just a year prior. As a result of the transition, the team fought its way to an 8-21 record overall and a 4-12 mark in MAC play, good for a fifth place finish in the West. This year’s squad is also a relatively young one, with just two seniors, and nine freshmen and sophomores, but the difference will be the team’s experience. In her first two seasons, Gilbert only had one returning starter for each campaign. For the 2009-10 campaign, she will have the luxury of four returning starters. “The experience that our returning starters bring to our team is imperative to our success,” Gilbert said. “Our leadership role lies predominantly in the hands of one player this year, but we’re looking for everyone to do their part and help build this program into the legacy we’re envisioning.” Gilbert said she feels her squad is more talented than either team she’s had in her first two campaigns here, and the combination of talent and experience has the third-year coach eyeing another MAC West Title. “We have solid and attainable goals,” Gilbert said. “Getting tougher in the post and tightening up our defense are two of the things we must do in order to reach those goals, but we have some players in here who can really help us shore up those areas with their toughness and discipline and grit. Last year we gave up a lot more points than we would’ve liked to. These players have a better understanding of what we are hoping to accomplish and I’m sure we’re going to get there.” Gilbert said the ultimate goal is to double the teams’ win total from last year and to return to the ways of her successful first season by capturing a MAC West crown and taking her team to the NCAA Tournament.

Eagle Veterans Junior guard Cassie Schrock will take on the bulk of the leadership role now that seniors and her co-leaders from last year, Amber Land and Shana McKinney, have departed. Schrock, a 200809 All-MAC honorable mention led the team in rebounding with 7.4 per contest, and was second on the team in scoring last year averaging 13.3 points. Her backcourt mate, Tavelyn James, also garnered All-MAC accolades as she topped the conference’s AllFreshman team. James led the team in scoring with 14.7 points per game, and finished the year with the sixth-highest scoring average among the nation’s freshmen. “Amber is one player in particular who will be missed,” said Gilbert. “Statistically you couldn’t always tell how valuable she was to this team, but she set an example on and off the court for the rest of her teammates. She was a tough leader for us and she will be missed.” Gilbert echoed those sentiments about McKinney, saying her interior toughness, defense and rebounding really anchored last year’s young team. With the loss of McKinney and Land, Amanda Tretheway and Kayla Vantil assume the roles as the teams’ only seniors. The six-foot two-inch forwards both transferred to EMU last year from Foothill Community College in Los Altos Hills, Calif. The pair played in a system similar to what the Eagles run now, explained Gilbert. “We’re really going to look for them to alter a lot of shots in the middle and provide length for us on defense,” Gilbert added. “Their style really fits into our game. They both averaged near double-doubles in high school and contributed a lot to their very successful college team.” James and fellow guard, junior De’Ja Wills, will anchor a deadly outside game for the Eagles, as the duo combined to hit 95 threepointers last year. Wills started 21 games for the Green and White in 2008-09 and averaged more than a steal per game to go along with her sharp shooting. James and Wills, along with Paige Redditt and Sydney Huntley-Rogers formed what Gilbert called a “nucleus” and did “some really good things to help the team make a statement in the MAC last year.” Huntley-Rogers was instrumental in some key wins for the Eagles last year with her ability to make big defensive plays and find open players. She led the team in steals and assists and was also the third leading scorer. She will also add to that outside shooting, having made 39 shots from beyond the arc last season. “Sydney really stepped up for us last year when we needed her,” Gilbert said of the junior guard. “She was able to get the ball in the hands of other playmakers if she wasn’t able to make a play herself.” Redditt is another highly touted returner for Gilbert and her coaching staff. She had one of her best performances of the season last year in a loss to Bowling Green, another school where she was heavily recruited. The sophomore averaged just shy of four points and four rebounds for Eastern, and she also led the team in blocked shots with almost one per contest. Coach Gilbert said Redditt will be looked upon to re-establish the interior defense which the team lacked last year. Tara Johnson will be in her junior campaign for the Eagles and has improved since last year. Gilbert said she feels Johnson is competing for a starting position on a team that is deep at the forward position. “She’s improved her ball handling and shooting since last year and we’re counting on her to continue to improve in the post,

2009-10 Outlook the forefront of the team’s focus. “Physically, Kristen is the strongest player on the team, bench pressing almost 150 pounds,” said Gilbert. “She was a top 10 shot blocker in the nation at only six-feet, so that shows you what type of game she brings to the table. We were able to bring her aboard thanks to some help from men’s basketball Head Coach Charles E. Ramsey and his recruiting circuit. When he got a chance to see her play, he knew immediately that she could make an impact for us. I know she’ll be really great for us when she’s on the floor.” India Hairston will also provide toughness and length on the interior for the Eagles. Her six-foot three-inch frame will provide an anchor with fellow newcomer Hite and the duo could become a tandem in the middle for years to come. Hairston was instrumental in leading her team to the MHSAA Class C State Championship held here at the EMU Convocation Center last year. Raina Spencer is another transfer, from Fordham University in New York. The junior guard will be eligible in January and Gilbert said that her skill level will definitely allow her to challenge for a contributing spot.

Junior guard Cassie Schrock offensively and defensively,” said Gilbert. “I honestly believe she’s capable of being a double-double machine for us.” Brittany Simmons rounds out the returners for Eastern. She garners high praises from the coaching staff as well. “We all recognize her as probably the best all-around athlete on the team,” Gilbert said. “Offensively, she’s very explosive and defensively, she’s improving all the time.” In total, Eastern returns nine players, all of which made significant contributions to the Eagles’ successes from a season ago. Eagle Newcomers Seven new players will don the Green and White of EMU for the first time during the 2009-10 season. Three college transfer students will join four “true” freshmen coming from the high school ranks to make up the seven new Eagles. Kelsi Robinson is a walk-on whose strength is shooting and intensity in the transition. Chelsea Hite is a six-foot four-inch center who can run the floor, get out on the break and finish around the basket. Much like the emergence of James last year, Gilbert has high hopes that freshman guard Lindsey Mahone will do the same. The lefty from Corpus Christi, Texas will be counted on to be a major contributor and give a lot of production from her guard spot. “Lindsey is really challenging for a starting spot because of her ability to do things with the basketball. She could probably sneak onto the All-MAC Freshman Team with some solid performances throughout the course of the season for us,” said Gilbert. Chenise Miller has what Gilbert describes as an “old school low post” game. She brings grit and toughness to the interior. She didn’t start playing basketball until she was a teenager, so her best basketball is ahead of her. “Chenise is the type of player I like to coach,” said Gilbert. “She hasn’t peaked and she hasn’t yet reached her potential. She still has a way to go, but she’s getting there extremely fast.” Kristin Thomas will also help to provide the toughness and defensive intensity that Gilbert said her team needs to re-position at

The Schedule The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team will get tested early and often throughout the 2009-10. A Dec. 2 trip to the not-so-welcoming confines of the University of Notre Dame’s Joyce Center awaits the women’s hoop squad this season. That trip to South Bend, Ind. comes one week after the Eagles return home from a week-long pre-Thanksgiving trips against two New York schools and a perennial power in Philadelphia. On Nov. 20, 22 and 24, respectively, EMU will battle Siena College and Niagara in the Big Apple state before heading off to Pennsylvania to take on the Temple Owls in the team’s first-ever meeting. “We have a really challenging schedule ahead of us this year with some tough matches against the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and the Horizon League before we get into our always-tough MAC schedule,” Gilbert said. The Eagles won’t have time to get homesick, though, as they return to Michigan for a game at the University of Detroit Mercy, Dec. 5. Four of Eastern’s next five games are at home in the Convocation Center during which the squad will wrap up non-conference play with a contest against North Dakota, Jan. 4. Also during the home swing, the Eagles will open MAC play against Central Michigan University in the finale of the four straight home tilts. Gilbert and squad will have two stints during the season where they play back-to-back games versus in-state rivals CMU and Western Michigan University. The first bout against Western will take place in Kalamazoo, Jan. 9. The second will be in Ypsilanti, Feb. 24, after a game against Central in Mt. Pleasant, Feb. 20. Also in February, the Eagles will travel to New York again to take on the University at Buffalo and to Muncie, Ind. to battle the defending MAC Tournament Champions Ball State Cardinals. The Eagles will wrap up the regular season, March 2, at the Convocation Center when they host the University of Toledo. The Eagles will have the opportunity to host a post-season game, March 6, as the MAC has gone back to hosting the first round games at the campus of the higher seed. The rest of the 2009-10 MAC Tournament will be held at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, March 10-13.

AnnMarie Gilbert AnnMarie Gilbert

Head Coach ~ Third Season at EMU Oberlin, 1991

Hard-working. Compassionate. Dedicated. Just a few words that come to mind when talking about AnnMarie Gilbert. On May 15, 2007, Eastern Michigan University introduced Gilbert as the seventh head women’s basketball coach in the history of the program. In her first season in Ypsilanti, Gilbert proved up to her billing. Eastern Michigan posted a 17-12 overall record and gained a share of the 2007-08 Mid-American Conference West Division Championship with an 11-5 mark. With the division crown, Gilbert became just the fourth first-year head coach in league history to guide her team to a MAC title. Additionally, her 17 wins was an EMU record for most victories by a first-year mentor and also ranks ninth best in conference history for a rookie coach. Gilbert made a statement in her first game, guiding the Eagles to a 108-22 win over Temple Baptist College, Nov. 11, 2007. Her first conference victory occurred just a few months later, when EMU turned in a dominating 61-42 victory over Northern Illinois University, Jan. 9, 2008. Year two was a rebuilding season for Gilbert and crew, as 77 percent of the minutes played came from underclassmen who had at least two more years of eligibility remaining. Under her tutelage, Cassie Schrock and Tavelyn James earned All-MAC accolades. Schrock was selected honorable mention All-MAC while James earned All-Freshman team accolades. Additionally, James became the all-time EMU leader in points by a freshman with 426 points and the first freshman to lead the Eagles in scoring since Holly Mitchell did so in 1997-98. The third year of the Gilbert era looks to be even brighter with a core of returners and a nationally recognized recruiting class coming to town. This 2009-10 incoming class was ranked as the top in the Mid-American Conference and 59th nationally by Dan Olson’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. A rising star in the collegiate coaching ranks, Gilbert possesses 18 years of collegiate coaching experience, including 10 seaons as a head coach. She also spent five years as an assistant coach at Michigan State University, where she helped the Spartans compile an impressive 120-44 record. During her time in East Lansing, the Spartans made it to five consecutive NCAA tournaments and to the 2005 National Championship game. “It is both an honor and a privilege to take on the challenge of leading the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball program,” Gilbert said at her introductory press conference in the atrium of the Convocation Center. “The bar has been set high here, but I’m looking forward to raising it to new heights.” “Recruiting is the key to winning MAC championships and advancing to NCAA tournaments,” Gilbert added. “Our staff will be committed to signing the top players not only within the state of Michigan, but in the Midwest and nationally in order to build upon the winning foundation that has already been laid here.” Under Gilbert’s tutelage, Kristin Haynie and Lindsay Bowen were honorable mention All-America selections in 2004-05, while Haynie was a first-round draft pick (No. 9 overall) of the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA. In 2005-06, Bowen was selected as a John R. Wooden Award candidate and was named second- team All-Big Ten.

In 2006-07, Victoria Lucas-Perry earned second-team All-Big Ten honors, while Rene Haynes garnered second-team honors by the coaches. As the recruiting coordinator for MSU, Gilbert consistently brought excellent talent to East Lansing, including four top 25 recruiting classes. In November of 2006, Gilbert was instrumental in signing five exceptional student-athletes to National Letters of Intent, including three players ranked in the top 100 nationally. As a class, it was ranked among the top 20 in the country by several recruiting publications. Gilbert helped land another stellar recruiting class for the 2006-07 season, including Michigan Miss Basketball Allyssa DeHaan, who went on to become the Big Ten Freshman of the Year. All-Star Girls Report ranked the 2004-05 class 18th in the nation and Courtney Davidson was ranked as the nation’s sixth-best point guard. The 200506 class was ranked 21st in the nation and including Aisha Jefferson, who was the nation’s sixth-ranked forward. During the 2004-05 season, Gilbert helped guide the program to a school-best 33-4 record which included a Big Ten Conference championship, a Big Ten Tournament title and a trip to the NCAA National Championship game. In her first season with the program Gilbert coached the post players. Under her direction, Liz Shimek was named co-Big Ten Freshman

In just two seasons as a player at Oberlin, she registered 1,527 points to become the school’s leading scorer, a record which stood until 2002. All told, Gilbert set 24 school records and 10 conference records as a player and still holds 10 standing NCAA Division III records. She received an invitation to compete for the U.S. team in the 1990 Pan Am Games trials in Colorado Springs. Oberlin retired her jersey in 1994 and in 2001 she was inducted into the Oberlin College Athletic Hall of Fame. Gilbert was a Street & Smith’s All-American, a McDonald’s All-Star game participant and was Ohio Miss Basketball her senior year of high school. For all her success, she is scheduled to be one of the 20 members inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame on May 22, 2010. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology with a minor in economics from Oberlin in 1991. Gilbert has a daughter, Jada (7), and a son, Jaden (5).

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located

Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, seven miles east of Ann Arbor, 40 miles west of Detroit and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It is an area rich in academic, research, technological and recreational resources. The University also has sites in Livonia, Jackson, Traverse City, Flint, Detroit and Monroe. EMU’s 800 plus-acre main campus of scenic flora and wooded areas includes 18 miles of walkways and jogging trails and has 122 buildings throughout the academic and athletic campuses. Eagle Crest – Eastern Michigan’s conference center, golf course and resort – is located on the banks of nearby Ford Lake. Recently named “A Cool City,” by Michigan’s Governor Jennifer Granholm, Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, with the passage of Act No. 138, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan formally paved the way for the establishment of Michigan State Normal School, with the exclusive purposes of instructing persons in the art of teaching; providing a good common school education; and giving instruction in the mechanic arts, husbandry, agricultural chemistry and the laws of the United States. Since its inception, Eastern Michigan, first as a Normal School, then as a College and finally as a University, has grown and developed to respond to the ever-changing needs of society. Over the years, EMU has educated thousands of sons and daughters of Michigan, the nation, and the world. The University currently serves nearly 22,000 students who are pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts, sciences and professions. In all, more than 200 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through the University’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; Technology, and its graduate school. Eastern Michigan’s exceptional faculty, students and alumni include CEOs from major businesses; a National Student Teacher of the Year, National Teacher of the Year, numerous Fulbright Scholars and Milken Family Foundation National Educators award winners; and several Michigan Teachers of the Year. EMU is regularly recognized by national publications for its excellence, diversity, and commitment to applied education.

Enrollment Profile

With nearly 22,000 students, EMU provides a rich learning environment for the university community. The University currently has approximately 17,000 undergraduates and 5,000 graduate students. Our students represent 45 states and 93 foreign countries. Of undergraduate students, 69 percent are full time and 60 percent are women. The most popular majors are education, business, social sciences and history, science and engineering, English, and the health professions. EMU’s population is approximately 70 percent white; 16 percent black; 3 percent international; 6 percent undeclared; 2.5 percent Asian-American; 2 percent Hispanic and 0.5 percent Native-American. Eastern Michigan offers a number of special academic programs to help students succeed. These include the Honors College; the Holman Learning Center; distance learning; accelerated format programs; online, weekend and evening programs and courses; American Humanics certification; the World College Study Abroad Tours; a specialized master’s degree program for corporations offered on site; a double master’s degree; online technologies for education and training through the Centers for Corporate Training; and EMU Worldwide. With more than 200 academic and social organizations, an extensive intramural sports program, 21 NCAA Division I-A sports and numerous cultural activities from which to choose, EMU students have diverse opportunities to become involved in campus life. Students’ on-campus housing choices range from traditional dormitory-style rooms to apartments and include living/learning center options.

Community Outreach

EMU’s Economic Impact

Since its founding in 1849, Eastern Michigan has provided quality services to the residents of Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, the State of Michigan and other states and nations. EMU’s total impact on the Michigan economy of an estimated $3 billion annually reflects a return of more than $30 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $115 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.25 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.

Eastern Michigan is making an impact nationally by channeling its academic research as a means of solving real-world problems. EMU currently has 14 research institutes and centers that focus on community building and civic engagement, quality, community and regional development, small business development, geospatial education, textiles, export assistance and product development. EMU is well known for merging theory and practice for the benefit of the community. Applied research leads to new knowledge, new jobs and new business. Annually, the university receives about $15 million in revenues for sponsored research and community service activities.

The Alumni Association

Representing more than 142,000 alumni and friends, the Alumni Association sponsors social and service-related programs for more than 20 geographically-based and special-interest alumni chapters.

Our History

1897: MSNS is the first U.S. teacher’s college to become a four-year institution.

When the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name has changed several times ­– to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times; adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975 and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs that include Continuing Education, the Centers for Corporate Training, the World College and numerous community-focused institutes. The University has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003) and the Student Center (2006).

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants. During World War II, Ypsilanti became home to the Willow Run Bomber Plant, a factory that would employ 100,000 workers.

Sports Medicine

The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of student-athletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. More than 500 student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Wally Roeser and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: to provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management

80

programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each studentathlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff oper- Head Athletic Trainer Steve Nordwall, ates out of three campus athletic MS, ATC training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building. Each of the athletic training facilities contain taping and practice preparation areas, treatment and rehabilitative equipment, and physician exam areas that allow for daily, on-campus physician care for athletic injuries and illnesses. Our facilities provide an appropriate environment for Head Orthopedic Team Physician the care of our student-athletes and serves as a proper clinical Wally Roeser, M.D. education venue for our athletic training students In the fall of 1997, the Athletic Education Training Program became accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.

Upon completion of the program, all athletic training students must pass the national certification examination prior to advancing into their Neurologist careers or continuing on in their education as Jeffrey Kutcher, M.D. an athletic trainer. It is our ongoing mission to constantly reevaluate the roles and responsibilities of our program in order to best exceed the expectations and needs of our student population. The interaction between the sports medicine staff, the student-athletes and the athletic training education program creates a productive atmosphere which enhances both the student-athlete experience and athletic training students’ clinical education.

Strength and Conditioning and a mix of training philosophies to attain our goals. By training in this manner we can avoid being one-dimensional which will help us eliminate plateaus and staleness in training. Core lifts include: bench press, squat and hang clean. Many injury prevention exercises are implemented as well.

Speed and Agility

An eagle by definition is a large bird of prey noted for its strength, size, keenness of vision and powers of flight. These are skills that can only develop in the right setting and environment. At Eastern Michigan University, it is the job of head strength and conditioning coach Mike Szerszen to guide student-athletes down the path that will help them develop those and other skills that will allow them to excel in competition. The main focus of the EMU strength and conditioning program is to develop the complete student-athlete. This is achieved through a program that is not based solely on weight training, but rather on the development of all aspects of athletic performance. Everything that is incorporated into the training program is geared towards enhancing success on the playing field. Areas of focus include speed, agility, strength, quickness, flexibility, explosive power, sports nutrition and mental toughness. One major area of focus is the development of running speed and quickness. Great focus is placed on strength development, flexibility and proper running mechanics. The goal is to produce strong physical athletes who improve their foot speed and quickness. While every athletic program lifts during the year, EMU student-athletes will also participate in year-round conditioning. The strength and conditioning staff push the student-athletes to excel throughout a continually physical and mentally demanding program. “We believe highly competitive athletes should never get out-of-shape,” Szerszen said. “Our workouts are intense and designed to challenge our student-athletes to surpass levels they have not yet achieved. Because of this aggressive training we help develop not only a physically tougher athlete, but also a mentally tougher one who excels in competition. Our goal is simple ... to be the best conditioned and physically toughest team in the country.” Physically developing student-athletes is a

We believe speed and agility drills should be utilized every time we work out. We incorporate some form of speed or agility drills into every workout. The reason for this philosophy is to provide constant reinforcement so that we can achieve maximum speed and quickness. Speed and agility is separated into long and short distances. Several examples of speed drills include resistant runs with harnesses and chutes, stance and start drills, running mechanics, form running and competitive sprints. Some of our agility drills include: cone drills, speed ladders, dot and t-drills, 20-yard shuttles, ladder runs, reactive drills, jump rope and quick feet drills.

Conditioning

year-round endeavor. During the season, football players at EMU will spend as much time with the strength and conditioning coaches as they do on the field with their position coaches. “A highly motivated athlete is a program’s greatest asset,” Szerszen said. “We strive for excellence both mentally and physically. We have individual goal meetings prior to each segment of our training. Short and long-term goals are set and we work diligently to achieve them. “Our athletes at EMU are second to none in terms of their hard work and effort,” Szerszen added. “We work hard, but have fun in the process. The camaraderie and work ethic they develop in the weight room carries over directly to their success in competition.” Strength and conditioning at EMU is a full-time commitment. There is no such thing as being a part-time champion. At EMU, the eventual goal of all athletes is to be successful on the Mid-American Conference and national level. Through our hard work and commitment to excellence, we believe we can achieve that goal.”

Strength Training

This is the foundation of all of our training. Improvements in all areas begin here. We use systematic periodic planning when developing our strength program. We use many compound movements and isolate muscle groups with machines and specific dumbbell exercises. We focus on working many different joint angles. We use as many different training variables

We believe that great student-athletes should never get out-of-shape and because of that we condition year-round. Of course, the intensity of the conditioning will be dictated by what we are doing during that period of training or at that point in the season. During the season, conditioning will be short and brief as it will be during the winter conditioning period. During the summer preseason training period, conditioning will be very intense as we prepare for the season and as we acclimate for the heat of two-a-day practices during August. Forms of conditioning include: 1.5 mile run, 110-yard sprints, step down sprints ranging in distances from 100 yards to 10 yards, position specific conditioning, gassers and half gassers, and 300-yard shuttle and ladder runs. All conditioning runs have goal times that the student-athletes must meet.

Goal Setting and Evaluation

Student-athletes will set individual goals for the end of winter conditioning, summer conditioning and the post-season. Each athlete has his own personal goal booklet to monitor gains. The goals are used as a method of monitoring the student-athlete and providing them with a target to attain in training to help improve their performance on the field. Student-athletes will be tested three times a year. These tests help our staff evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Testing will include the following at various points in the year: bench press, squat, hang clean, vertical jump, 1.5-mile run, 16 x 110 yard sprints, 15 second bag jumps, 20-yard shuttle, 10-yard sprint, 225-lb bench press reps max, body fat percentage, sit and reach flexibility, height and weight.

Student-Athlete Support Services While success on the field is important, success in the classroom is the number one priority. Student Athlete Support Services (SASS) is dedicated to the academic success of the Eagles. Led by Erin Burdis and her staff of counselors, SASS strives to make sure every student-athlete finds academic success at Eastern. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each studentathlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and University rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy, but with hard work and dedication from both the student-athlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other University student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the admissions office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, health services, the records office, financial aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

EMU director of athletics Derrick Gragg explained. “We are very proud of our student-athletes’ work in the classroom and will continue to support them as they move forward to reach the ultimate goal of graduating.” “Obviously, our staff and student-athletes work closely to make sure that a major emphasis is put on the academic success for our teams and this 2009 winter report is the proof that all of that hard work is paying off,” said Student-athletes from the men’s and women’s basketball Erin Burdis, EMU’s Director teams joined forces for the fourth annual EMU Pride Day in of Student-Athlete Support the summer of 2008.

FOR MORE INFORMATION Contact Dr. Melody Reifel Werner, EMU’s Associate Athletic Director for Compliance and Special Projects.

Dr. Melody Reifel Werner mreifel@emich.edu 734.487.2327

The Eastern Michigan University Office of Athletics Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective studentathletes, institutional employees, community members and boosters about the importance of adhering to NCAA, Mid-American Conference and institutional rules. The commitment to compliance ensures institutional control over the department of athletics. The existence of a successful compliance program depends on the willingness of coaches, administrators, staff, student-athletes and boosters to be cognizant of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules.

ONCE A BOOSTER ALWAYS A BOOSTER. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity forever! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with, EMU's athletics program.

WHAT IS COMPLIANCE? At Eastern Michigan University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure EMU's compliance with all applicable NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, MAC and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, MAC and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents); • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules.

WHAT IS AN EXTRA BENEFIT? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a EMU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or co-signing of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing.

ARE YOU A BOOSTER? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports EMU athletics (e.g., EMU Athletic Club, E-Gridiron Group); • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting EMU's athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled studentathletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, student-athletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete's participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade, students enrolled in preparatory schools and two-year colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? EMU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, EMU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Mid-American Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the EMU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or the Mid-American Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges). QUESTIONS? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective student-athletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Dr. Melody Reifel Werner at 734.487.2327 or mreifel@emich.edu.

Convocation Center

The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, in its 11th season as the crown jewel of EMU athletics, opened up a new era of excitement on the west campus of EMU in the fall of 1998. The state-of-the-art, $29-million facility is the result of a decade-long effort to improve and upgrade University facilities and followed closely the opening of the $41-million Bruce T. Halle Library on the main campus. Construction of the Convocation Center began in the spring of 1997 and culminated with its dedication game, Dec. 9, 1998, with a men’s basketball game against the University of Michigan in front of a crowd of 7,647. Since its opening, the Convocation Center has served as home court for the Eagles’ men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. The EMU wrestling team and women’s gymnastics team have held several meets on the arena floor. The Convocation Center has also served as the site for four Mid-American Conference Championships. EMU hosted the 2000 and 2007 MAC Gymnastics Championship and the 2002 and 2009 MAC Wrestling Championship. The arena has been the host site for four first-round MAC Women’s Basketball Tournament games, four first-round MAC Volleyball Tournament games and one first-round game for the men’s basketball squad. The Convocation Center also played host to the 2008 WNBA’s Eastern Conference Finals and the WNBA Championship, as the Detroit Shock utilized the facility for the playoffs. Along with their commitment to EMU Athletics, the Convocation Center staff has brought some of the finest entertainers in the world to Ypsilanti. The Convo has hosted concerts by the Black Crowes, Indigo Girls, Godsmack, Smashmouth, Ludacris, Bob Dillion, Toby Keith, Matchbox Twenty, Goo Goo Dolls, Dave Chapelle and John Mayer.

84

The Convocation Center is also the site for EMU’s spring and winter commencement ceremonies. Among other events that have taken place include numerous youth sporting competitions, high school commencements, trade shows, job fairs, conventions, charity and community awareness events as well as a circus. The 204,316-square-foot facility features three user-friendly levels — arena, concourse and office — and three seating configurations to maximize crowd capacity and space usage. The largest seating capacity is for center-stage entertainment activities, with 9,500 seats available. The capacity for basketball games is approximately 8,800. EMU’s athletic administration is located on the office level, along with offices for the EMU football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball coaching staffs. The EMU Athletic Media Relations Office, as well as offices for the Convocation Center staff, are located on the office level. The main athletic training room and office space for EMU’s sports medicine staff is located on the arena level as are strength and conditioning facilities and equipment rooms. There is no doubt that the Convocation Center has become a special place for athletic events, but there is a warm spot in the hearts of Eastern Michigan fans for Bowen Field House, the home for men’s and women’s basketball games for 43 years. Bowen was built in 1955 at a cost of $1.25 million. The facility has 79,529 square feet of floor space and includes an eight-laps-tothe-mile indoor track. An additional 9,394 square feet, along with new permanent seating, a new court and upgrading of the facility was completed in 1982 at a cost of $506,938. Bowen still serves as home to EMU’s track teams and also serves as a practice facility for many of Eastern’s varsity squads.

Mid-American Conference

Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 63-year history of the league this past March. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving for six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (Toledo’s SeaGate Centre), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and most recently baseball (Chillicothe’s VA Memorial Stadium). The MAC tied a league record in 2008 with five schools participating in bowl games – Buffalo (International); Ball State (GMAC); Central Michigan (Motor City); Western Michigan (Texas); and Northern Illinois (Independence Bowl). The 2008 season also saw the first MAC football team ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. Ball State was ranked as high as 12th in the BCS Standings, 12th in the AP and 13th in the USA Today Poll. The Cardinals were ranked in all three polls for 10 straight weeks. MAC football teams won a league record four games versus opponents from the Big Ten. Toledo became the first MAC team to ever beat Michigan in Ann Arbor; Ball State won its first-ever game against a Big Ten foe when the Cardinals beat Indiana; Central Michigan also defeated Indiana; and Western Michigan beat Illinois in a game played at Ford Field. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC signed an eight-year rights agreement through the 2016-2017 academic year for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal will be the most extensive in the 63-year history of the conference. The new deal calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regularseason MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. Women’s athletics shined for the MAC this past year. For the first time in the history of the conference the MAC sent three teams to the

88

NCAA women’s volleyball tournament (Miami, Ohio and Western Michigan). Western Michigan became only the third team to make it to the Sweet Sixteen (Ohio 2005 and Western Michigan 1983). In women’s basketball MAC Tournament Champion Ball State upset perennial national power Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament handing the Lady Vols their first ever loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The victory was named “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, while first year head coach Kelly Packard was named Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the WBCA. Akron continued its dominance of MAC men’s soccer with its 11 regular-season championship to go along with its sixth MAC Tournament title – both league records. The Zips were ranked as high as No. 2 during the season and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Northwestern, 1-0. Steve Zakuani, who helped guide the University of Akron men’s soccer program to a record-setting campaign in 2008, was the first overall pick of the 2009 Major League Soccer Super Draft. Zakuani earned 2008 MAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which goes to the best men’s soccer player in the country. The conference now has national leadership positions on the following NCAA committees: Warde Manual, Buffalo (Academic Cabinet); Susan Lipnickey, Miami (Leadership Council and Infractions Appeals); Derrick Gragg, Eastern Michigan (Legislative Council); Dr. John Peters, Northern Illinois (Board of Directors); Tom Collins, Ball State (Amateurism Cabinet); Kelly Andrews, Toledo (Awards, benefits, Expenses & Financial Aid Cabinet); Stephannnie HarveyVandenburg, Eastern Michigan (Recruiting & Athletic Personal Issues Cabinet); Brad Bates, Miami (Academic Performance); Eileen Jennings, Central Michigan (Infractions); Ted McKown, Kent State (International Students Records); Jim Klein, Toledo (Legislative Review & Interpretations); Karin Lee, Ball State (Minority Opportunities and Interest); Melody Reifel Werner, Eastern Michigan (Research); Catharine Marsszeky, Kent State (Student-Athlete Advisory); Lee Merserve, Bowling Green (Walter Byers Scholarship). The MAC also has representation on Division I Sport Committees and related govern-

ing groups: Cathy O’Donnell, Kent State (Field Hockey); Dave Heeke, Central Michigan (Football Issues); Marling “Newt” Engle, Akron (Rifle); Karin Lee, Ball State (Tennis); Rich Ceronie (Track & Field); Laing Kennedy, Kent State (Men’s Basketball); Charlie Coles, Miami (Men’s Basketball Issues); Jim Schaus, Ohio and Reggie Witherspoon, Buffalo (Men’s Basketball Rules); Steven Cady, Miami (Men’s Ice Hockey); Mary Lu Gribschaw, Akron (Men’s Soccer); Greg Christopher, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball); Anucha Brown-Sanders, Buffalo and Donyale Canada, MAC (Women’s Basketball Issues); Curt Miller, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball Rules); Jerry Reighard, Central Michigan (Gymnastics); Matt Wolfert, Ball State (Women’s Soccer); Dee Abrahamson, Northern Illinois (Women’s Softball Rules); Derek van der Merwe, Central Michigan (Wrestling). From two-time Super Bowl quarterback winning Ben Roethlisberger (Miami University), NFL Defensive MVP James Harrison (Kent State University), British Open winner Ben Curtis (Kent State University), World Series winning manager Bob Brenly (Ohio University) and Olympic bobsled team member Brock Kreitzburgh (University of Toledo), the Mid-American Conference continues to excel in producing leaders in the world of athletics. History of the MAC Based in Cleveland since July 1999 following a 15-year stay in Toledo, Ohio, the MAC has established historic measurements in both football and men’s and women’s basketball since moving to Northeast Ohio. The Mid-American Conference was founded as a five-school league on February 24, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio with Ohio, Butler, Cincinnati, Wayne State and Western Reserve admitted as charter members. The Mid-American Conference has 12 full-time schools and a 13th, Temple, for football only. Comprising the East Division is the University of Akron (joined in 1992), Bowling Green State University (1952), University at Buffalo (1998), Kent State University (1951), Miami University (1947), Ohio University (1946) and Temple University (2007). The West Division members are Ball State University (1973), Central Michigan University (1971), Eastern Michigan University (1971), Northern Illinois University (1975-86, 1997), University of Toledo (1950) and Western Michigan University (1947). In 1946 men’s basketball was the first competitive sport in the MAC, which now sponsors a total 23 sports. Women’s sports were brought into the conference’s structure in 1980. For men, championships (11) are sponsored in football, basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, golf and tennis. For women, championships (12) are sponsored in basketball, softball, volleyball, cross country, field hockey, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, gymnastics, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team came up short versus Cleveland State University, 76-67, Tuesday evening, Nov. 18, in non-conference action at the Wolstein Center. In a game that was plagued with a combined 47 personal fouls, the Vikings used a 17-6 run to open the second half and were able to fend off the Eagles to claim the nine-point victory. The contest marked the return of a pair of northeast Ohio natives for the Eagles in head coach AnnMarie Gilbert and sophomore guard Cassie Schrock. Schrock had a solid return to lead the Eagles with a career-best 22 points to go along with a team-high five rebounds. Junior Mary Lawson posted 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc. For CSU, Kailey Klein scored a game-high 23 points and in the process became the 20th player in school-history to record 1,000 career points. Senior Dominique Butler added 18 points and nine rebounds, while Jessica Roque tallied 11 points. Eastern Michigan connected on just 39-percent (17-of-43) from the floors while being limited to just 20 rebounds.

With 47 fouls being whistled, EMU was 26-of-31 from the charity stripe while CSU made 20-of-27 shots. On a cold and blustery night in downtown Cleveland, both sides opened the game with cold shooting as neither side able to connect on a bucket for the first 1:59 of the contest. Then all the sudden the shots began to fall, as the Vikings pulled out to an early 11-9 advantage via nine consecutive points from Klein with 15:55 left in the first period. Eastern would take its first lead of the night at 12-11 but that was short lived as the Vikings would roll off 10 of the next 15 points to take a four point edge, 21-17, with 7:27 to go in the period. However, a quick 6-0 run capped by a Schrock put-back promptly put Eastern back up 23-21 with 6:01 showing. The EMU led to would grow to as many as four points, 28-24, on the strength of five straight points from Tavelyn James. But the waning moments on the half belonged to the Vikings, who closed on a 6-2 run as the teams headed into the locker room deadlocked at 30. Following the intermission the Vikings came out firing, reclaiming the lead at 39-32 and the momentum forcing the Eagles to burn a timeout to stop the run. A free throw by Schrock and a trey by Lawson cut the deficit to three, 39-36, but Cleveland State kept pushing the tempo while cleaning the glass for the rebounds. The Viking expanded the cushion to 11, 47-36, on a pair of Klein free throws with 13:13 to go on the contest. Eastern would chip away, cutting the margin to five points at 59-54 on four straight from Schrock at the 6:50 mark. CSU would not be phased, pushing the advantaged back to 11, 71-60, on another runner in the lane by Klein.

YPSILANTI, Mich. – Behind 18 point from freshman guard Tavelyn James and 17 from sophomore guard Cassie Schrock, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team closed out the 2008 portion of the calendar year with a 77-47 non-conference decision here Monday night, Dec. 29, in the Convocation Center to Weber State University. After leading by six points at the half, 33-27, the Eagles outscored the Wildcats 44-20 in the second half to cruise to the win. In addition to James and Schrock, De’Ja Wills also hit double digits with 12 points. Amber Land and Shana McKinney tied for the game-high in rebounds with seven each. Weber State was paced by Karlee Weight with nine points while Tonya Schnibbe, the Big Sky Conference’s second leading scorer at 14.6 points per game, was held in check with just eight points. For the game Eastern shot 43.5 percent (27-of-62) while outrebounding Weber State, 47-26. WSU, which showed some signs of jet lag after making the cross-country flight from Utah, made just 32 percent (16-of-50) of its shots while committing 23 turnovers. Points in the early going were scarce for both sides, as neither team was able to convert on their first four possessions of the contest. WSU’s Schnibbe got the scoring started with a pair of free throw tosses with 16:50 showing on the first-half clock. EMU’s McKinney returned the favor with a tip-in of her own at the16:21 mark to open to scoring for the home team. Both teams struggled to the get rock to fall with EMU connecting on just three of its first nine shots, while WSU was 1-of-7 from the floor during the first seven minutes. The Eagles’ offensive woes were beginning to change though thanks to back-to-back buckets by James to make it 15-12 with 9:11 left in the half. Then consecutive treys by Lawson and Wills over the top of the Wildcats’ zone defense forced Weber State to call a timeout with EMU up seven, 21-14. The Green and White’s lead would grow to as many as 10 points, 24-14, on a jumper in the lane by sophomore forward Tara Johnson at the 6:58 mark. However, the Wildcats would post a 13-4 run of their own over the next 4:13 to cut the deficit to just one, 28-27. The final 1:39 would belong to the Eagles as Lawson buried a three and Land would hit one from the block to send EMU into the locker room with a six point cushion, 33-27. For the period EMU shot 39 percent (13-of-33) from the field, including hitting four shots from long range. Weber State was just 7-of-19 for the half, but was a stellar 11-of-12 from the free throw line. EMU also controlled the glass, grabbing 21 caroms to just 13 for the WSU. In the second 20 minutes of play the Eagles’ run continued, as the lead would grow to 14, 43-29, on a James coast-to-coast lay-up with 15:42 left. WSU would chip away to get within 12 points, 47-35, on a Mikell Woodfield jumper but would get no closer the rest of the way. The Eagles would respond with a 9-2 run to force another WSU timeout with 9:24 to play and EMU up 55-37. WSU would go for more than five minutes without a field goal until Schnibbe ended the drought with a jumper to make it 62-39 with 5:48 to go. But the EMU sharp-shooting continued as the Green and White would cruise to the 30-point decision.

DEKALB, Ill. – Despite 22 points from freshman guard Tavelyn James, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team dropped a 69-62 overtime decision to Northern Illinois University Saturday afternoon, Jan. 17, in Mid-American Conference play here at the NIU Convocation Center. In a back-and-fourth game, the Eagles used a 20-9 second half run to take a 54-49 advantage with 2:52 remaining. However, an Aileen Rossouw layup with 31 seconds remaining in regulation knotted the contest at 54. Sophomore Cassie Schrock had a chance to win the game in regulation, but her shot with 2.3 seconds to go was short as the teams headed to overtime The extra frame belonged to the Huskies, who out-scored EMU 15-8, to claim the hard-fought victory. Northern Illinois was a perfect 3-of-3 from the floor and 8-of-8 from the charity stripe in the extra five minutes, James led all scorers with 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including going 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. Sophomore Sydney Huntley-Rogers was the only other Eagle to reach double digits in points with 10 to go along with her five assists. Four Huskies notched double figure points led by Kylie York with 15 points, while Rossouw, Ebony Ellis and Jessie Wilcox each finished with 13. The first half was back-and-fourth with neither side able to put much distance between the sides. Eastern Michigan opened the contest on fire connecting on 5-of-9 shots to take a quick 15-8 edge with 12:13 to go on the period. But the Huskies’ defense would step up and hold the Eagles without a score for nearly four minutes while going on a 4-0 run to cut the deficit to 15-12 with 11:07 to go. The scoring would slow for both sides as Eastern still clung to a two-point cushion, 17-15, as the clock headed under the seven minutes mark. Back-to-back three-pointers from Mary Lawson would expand the lead to 23-15 with 5:33 showing, but the Huskies would remain close the half on a 9-2 run to head into the locker room down just three at 27-24. Following the intermission a different NIU team took to the floor, as the Huskies rolled off nine of the period’s first 11 points via scores from Ellis and York to take a four-point edge, 33-29, 16 minutes still to play. The streak continued for the team clad in Cardinal and Black uniforms, as the NIU advantage grew to seven, 28-31, when Wilcox drained a trey from the corner with 13:07 left. Eastern would begin to shake out of its offensive funk via five consecutive points from James to bring the Eagles back within a trio, 44-41, with 8:13 showing on the second half clock. EMU would outscore NIU, 15-9, over the 6:09 as another triple from James with 4:02 to play knotted the game at 49. The run would continue as Huntley-Rogers would give the Eagles a four-point edge, 54-49, with a pair of free-throws with just under three minutes to play. NIU would claw back to tie the game at 54 via an Aileen Rossouw layup with 31 seconds remaining in regulation. Schrock would have a chance to win the game in regulation, but her shot with 2.3 seconds left was short as the teams headed to overtime The extra frame belonged to the Huskies, who out-scored EMU 15-8, to claim the hard-fought victory. Northern Illinois was a perfect 3-of-3 from the floor and 8-of-8 from the charity stripe in the extra five minutes.

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Freshman guard Tavelyn James had a career-best 27 points and sophomore Sydney Huntley-Rogers chipped in 20, but the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team dropped its sixth-straight game, falling to Western Michigan University, 76-67, Wednesday evening, Jan. 21, at University Arena. The loss puts the Eagles at 4-13 overall and 0-5 in MidAmerican Conference play while the Broncos (5-13, 1-4 MAC) captured their first MAC win of the season. Hot-shooting was the story for both sides, as Eastern Michigan shot 46 percent (26-of-56) from the field. However, Western Michigan was even better connecting on 52 percent (27-of-52) of its shot, including draining nine three-pointers. The Broncos led from wire-to-wire in the decision, taking a lead as big a 16 points late in the second half. The Eagles were led by James who had 27 points on the evening, including a 4-for-5 effort from the charity stripe. Huntley-Rogers notched 20 points to go along with three assists and three rebounds. Sophomore Cassie Schrock nearly hit double figures as well for the Eagles, chipping in eight points and seven rebounds. The Broncos had four players in double figures, led by senior Tiera DeLaHoussaye with 17, but most of that came from the free-throw line by making 7-of-12 attempts. Brenna Bankston hit for 16, with Molly Dreher scoring 15 and Miame Giden chipping in 14 for Western. The Broncos also out-rebounded the Eagles, 31 to 30. Out of the gate was a frenetic pace for both squads, with the teams combining for just four miss shots during the opening five minutes of action with the Broncos holding on to a 15-9 advantage. Western kept up the tempo allowing the margin to balloon to 10 points, 19-9, on a DeLaHoussaye fastbreak lay-up with 13:44 showing on the clock. Just as quickly the momentum would turn in favor of the visitors, as the Eagles posted a 12-4 run over the next 4:47 to cut the lead to just a pair, 23-21, via a jumper from Huntley-Rogers at the 7:53 mark. However, WMU would promptly counter with a Dwyer three-pointer to expand the margin back to five points. The home standing Broncos continued their hot-shooting, capitalizing with a 14-6 run to push the margin to 13 points, 40-27, capped off with a pair of back-to-back treys from Dwyer and Banktson. Eastern would chip away with a pair of lay-up by James and put-back from Land with 21 seconds left in the half to head into the lockerroom down just seven, 40-33. Following the intermission the pace was again quickened but the score would remain in favor of the Broncos as the Eagles were working at whittling away at the deficit. A three by James made it a four point affair, 47-43, with 14:12 left but as the case was all night Western quickly responded with a bucket of its own to keep Eastern from getting any closer. A 20-7 WMU run over the next 6:45 effectively put the game out of reach, as the Broncos lead grew to its biggest of the game at 16 points, 72-56, with 2:45 to play. EMU would make it interesting though in the waning moments, using an 11-2 run to get back within seven, 74-67. DeLaHoussaye would make a pair of free-throw tosses though to seal the victory.

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team dropped a Mid-American Conference cross-divisional match-up today, Jan. 24, at the Convocation Center, as the Falcons of Bowling Green State University handed the Eagles a 69-55 loss.

After being down 14-4 to start the contest, the Eagles responded with a 10-4 run to pull within four, 18-14, with 8:04 remaining in the first frame. A Redditt lay-in and foul with 6.2 seconds remaining brought the Eagles back within three, but the Bobcats went the length of the floor off the free throw miss for a lay-up to take a 30-25 halftime lead. Ohio was hot in the first half, shooting 52 percent (13-for-25) compared to 34.5 percent (10-for-29) for EMU. Wills led the Eagles with nine first half points while Redditt chipped in eight.

AKRON, Ohio – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team fell short Saturday afternoon, Feb. 7, as the University of Akron Zips handed the Eagles a 71-57 loss at James A. Rhodes Arena. The loss drops EMU to 4-17 and 0-9 in the Mid-American Conference this season, while Akron improves to 9-13 (4-5 MAC) with the victory. Freshman Paige Redditt nearly notched her first career double-double, tallying a career-high 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting from the field to go along with nine boards. Akron’s Kara Murphy scored a game-high 21 points. Down by as many as 11 points in the first frame, the Eagles managed to pull within a basket, as back-to-back three-pointers by freshman Tavelyn James and sophomore De’Ja Wills made it a 25-23 game with under two minutes left in the half. Wills would again connect from downtown in the waning seconds of the first half to make it a 32-26 game at intermission. EMU shot 39.9 percent (9-of-29) from the field in the first half, while the Zips shot 59.9 percent (13-of-22) from the field in the first 20 minutes. The Zips continued their hot shooting in the second half, going on a 17-2 run in the opening minutes to take a 49-30 advantage. The Eagles pulled within 12 points with 6:12 remaining, but the Zips would keep EMU at arm’s length for the remainder of the contest to seal the victory.

YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team picked up its first Mid-American Conference win of the season, defeating the University at Buffalo, 69-58, Wednesday, Feb. 11, at the Convocation Center. Down five points with 7:58 to play, the Eagles used a 16-1 run that featured four three-pointers from De’Ja Wills to retake the lead at 61-51. EMU would make eight clutch free-throws in the final 1:17 to seal the 11-point victory. With the win, the Eagles improve to 5-17 (1-9 MAC) on the year while Buffalo falls to 5-18 (1-9 MAC). The Eagles were led by sophomore Cassie Schrock who nearly notched the third triple-double in the program’s history with 22 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in 39 minutes of work. Wills chipped in 12 points on four three-pointers while Tavelyn James hit double-figures with 13 points. The Eagles shot 29 percent (20-for-70) for the contest, with Buffalo hitting at a 40 percent (20-for-50) clip. The Bulls out-rebounded the Eagles by one, 46-45. The Eagles took advantage of free throw opportunities, sinking 22-of-28 attempts for the contest. A Wills triple with 7:38 remaining ended a 10-minute scoring drought from the field for EMU, bringing the Eagles back within a basket. Two more triples from Wills on the same EMU possession gave the Eagles a five-point advantage with 5:24 remaining. The Eagles found Wills once again on the ensuing possession, with the sophomore knocking down another trey to increase the lead to 59-51 with 4:47 remaining. A pair of Schrock free throws pushed the lead to 10, 61-51 with a little over two minutes remaining in the contest. The Eagles would hit their free throws down the stretch to keep the game out of reach. Coming out of the break, the Bulls went on an 11-4 run over the first five minutes to cut the halftime deficit of seven to a single point, 40-39, off a Kourtney Brown three-point play. The Bulls then took their first lead of the contest at the 12:51 mark when Bridgette Kendricks rebounded her own free throw miss and laid it off the glass to make it 44-42. EMU took advantage of a fast-breaking offense in the early going, racing to a 13-5 lead with 13:44 remaining in the first, forcing a UB timeout. The Eagles would continue to turn Buffalo miscues into points, increasing the lead to 15 with a little under 10 minutes remaining in the first off a Huntley-Rogers’ trey to beat the shot clock. The Bulls would slowly chip away at the EMU lead throughout the remainder of the first, cutting the deficit to seven off a Brittany Hedderson 24-foot three-pointer as time expired to give the Eagles a 36-29 halftime lead. EMU was led by Schrock with 12 points and James with nine. The Eagles shot 38 percent (14-for-37) compared to 42 percent (10-for-24) for the visitors while forcing the Bulls into 14 first half turnovers.

OXFORD, Ohio – Behind 25 points from freshman Tavelyn James and a near triple-double by senior Amber Land, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team rolled to a 56-45 victory over Miami University at Millett Hall. The Eagles used a 27-3 run to open the second half en route to the squad’s first Mid-American Conference road victory of the campaign. Land turned in the best game of her career, collecting nine points, nine rebounds and eight steals to become the second EMU studentathlete to record a near triple-double in as many games. James scored 11 of her game-high 25 points in the first four minutes of the second half, as the Eagles limited the RedHawks to a season-low 45 points. Miami’s previous low in points was 53 against Ohio University, Jan. 21, in Oxford. Sophomore Cassie Schrock also notched 11 points for the Eagles, who improve to 6-17 overall and 2-9 in the conference. The win was EMU’s sixth all-time in Millett Hall and the second consecutive in the venerable building. The only other time Eastern has won back-to-back games in Oxford was between 1986 and 1987 when head coach Kathy Hart guided the then-Hurons to the consecutive victories. Jenna Schone led Miami with 12 points while Jaclyn Leininger added eight points and nine rebounds. Miami (13-11, 5-6 MAC) was hurt when injuries to Ashleigh Brown, Maggie Boyer and Erin Wisner forced them to miss the game. Eastern shot 17-for-52 from the field for 33 percent clip, meanwhile Miami finished the game shooting just 18-for-59 from the field for 30.5 percent. EMU out rebounded Miami by two (43 to 41), along with creating 16 steals off of 22 RedHawks miscues off. The Green and White equaled a season-high with six blocks. The Green and White jumped out to a 7-1 lead to begin the game, while holding Miami to 0-of-5 from the field and five turnovers. The defending MAC Tournament Champion RedHawks would battle back to take their first lead, 14-11, at the 8:45 mark on a Briana Dunlap three-pointer. Miami would build a lead as large as five, 17-12, on a Leininger jumper with 6:46 remaining in the half. The teams exchanged buckets, before Eastern would regroup and close the stanza on a 12-8 run to take a 26-25 advantage into the locker room. Following the intermission, MU’s Ashley Hawkins opened the scoring when her layup gave Miami its final lead of the game at 27-26. James then scored a layup and hit three three-point field goals that were sandwiched around a Sydney Huntley-Rogers layup to spurn a 27-3 Eagles’ run that built the Eastern Michigan lead to 53-30 with 4:42 remaining in the game. Miami would close the game with a 15-3 run of their own, however, it was too little, too late as Eastern held on for the 11-point victory.

YPSILANTI, Mich. – After allowing a halftime lead to slip away, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team regrouped late in the second half to record a hard-fought 53-49 Mid-American Conference West Division victory over Northern Illinois University, Saturday, Feb. 21 at the Convocation Center. The Eagles have now won three league contests in a row. With the win, EMU improves to 7-17 (3-9 MAC) on the year, while NIU falls to 13-12 (8-4 MAC). Leading the way for the Green and White was the duo of Cassie Schrock and Tavelyn James with 15 and 11 points, respectively. Aileen Rossouw netted 13 points for the Huskies. The Eagles forced NIU into 21 miscues, as well as limiting the visitors to 34.5 percent (19-of-55) shooting for the contest. The Eagles wore pink uniforms and shoelaces during the contest as part of the WBCA Pink Zone initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in women’s basketball, on campuses and in communities. With an opportunity to tie the contest at 51-all, the Huskies turned the ball over on a shot clock violation with 44 seconds remaining. The Eagles did not disappoint on the next possession, as Sydney Huntley-Rogers hit a turnaround jumper from the left elbow as the shot clock expired to push the Eagle lead to four, 53-49, with 15 seconds remaining. NIU scored five quick points coming out of the break, cutting the EMU lead to seven, 32-25, forcing an Eagle time out at 18:20. The Huskies continued to cut into the lead as EMU struggled to score to start the second half. The Huskies tied the game at 36-36 off Becky Smith’s three-point play at the 12:14 mark before Smith scored again on the ensuing possession to give NIU its first lead, 38-36, since the 17:44 mark of the first half. A Schrock three-point play at 9:35 knotted the game once again at 41-41, allowing the Eagles to halt the NIU run. The teams then went cold over the next few minutes, with Schrock’s free throws putting the Eagles back up by one, 45-44, at the 6:10 mark. In the first half, EMU used an active zone and pressing defense to keep the Huskies in check offensively. After trading baskets with NIU for most of the first half, the Eagles were able to take an eight-point lead, 26-18, at 2:22 off a pair of Amber Land (Kulm, ND-Kulm) free throws. A lay-up by NIU on the ensuing possession cut the lead back to six before James hit a three from the corner, forcing an NIU time out at 1:54 with the home team up, 29-20. De’Ja Wills nailed a three from the top of the key with 15 second remaining to send the Eagles to the break with a 32-20 advantage. James led the way offensively with 11 points while Schrock scored six with Wills chipping in five. The Eagles shot 37.9 percent (11-of-29) compared to 30.8 percent (8-of-26) for Northern Illinois. The Huskies out-rebounded the Eagles 22-15, but committed 12 turnovers to just three for EMU in the first half.

A turnover on the next EMU possession allowed the Cardinals to put the game away at the line.

The Eagles regrouped out of the timeout, using a James triple and Schrock layin to cut the lead to 43-38 and force a Cardinal timeout with 13:58 remaining.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Sophomore guard De’Ja Wills had a career-best 23 points but it was not enough, as the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team fell to the University the Toledo, 73-61, Saturday afternoon, Feb. 28, in front of a record 5,701 fans at the newly renovated Savage Arena. Despite holding the Rockets without a field goal for the first 7:05, the Eagles could not capitalize on the opportunities to pad their early four-point cushion. EMU shot just 34.3 percent (23-of-67) from the field, while Toledo shot 45.6 percent (26-of-57) from the floor despite starting the contest by missing its first 13 shots. The Eagles were led by Wills who had 23 points on the evening, including a 5-for-13 effort from beyond the arc. Prior to today’s game Wills’ previous best was a 14 point effort at North Dakota, Nov. 14, 2008. Sophomore Cassie Schrock chipped in 13 points and six rebounds. Freshman Kimberly Davis also added eight points and nine rebounds in a losing effort. The Rockets had five players in double figures, led by junior Allie Clifton with 17 points. Sophomore Melissa Goodall (14), junior Lisa Johnson (12), freshman Naama Shafir (11) and junior Tanika Mays (10) each hit double digits as well. Shafir also contributed a career-high 13 assists, which tied for the fifth-most in school history, to tally her first career doubled-double. EMU got on the board first with four quick points by freshman Tavelyn James, while the defense was up to the challenge holding the potent Rocket offense with out a score in first 16 attempts at a field goal (0-for-13 with 3 turnovers). UT’s Lisa Johnson got the Rockets on the board with a pair of free throws at the 14:14 mark. Finally the streak ended for Toledo with 12:59 showing, when Melissa Goodall drained a 14-footer to tie the score at 4-4. The tempo would pick up for both sides. Toledo pulled out in front 18-10 on a Clifton three-pointer with 8:43 to go before back-to-back buckets by Wills pulled EMU back within four at the 7:41 mark. A Wills trey made it a two-point contest, 19-17, but a Shafir three promptly followed to push the edge back to five. The teams would exchange scores for the remainder of the period, but the margin would stay the same as the teams headed into the locker room at the half with Toledo clinging to a 30-25 advantage. Following the intermission the Eagles came out firing, cutting the deficit to just one, 34-33, on a James’ triple from the corner with 18:43 showing. However, just as quickly the EMU offense would go silent, allowing Toledo to go on another 7-1 run to up the score to 41-34. Eastern would respond with a quickly with a 4-0 spurt, but once again luck was on Toledo’s side as Johnson would bank a triple off the glass to make the run for naught and force EMU to burn a timeout to regroup with 13:02 left. The Rockets continued to hold a comfortable cushion until back-to-back layups from Williams and Mays pushed the score to 55-45 with 8:23 to go. Toledo pounded the ball inside leading to a 14-5 run to take its largest advantage of the game, 64-50, with 2:36 to play. The closest EMU would get in the closing moments was 10 points on two separate occasions.

TOLEDO, Ohio – After falling behind by as many as 19 points in the second half, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team rallied to record a 69-66 win over Mid-American Conference West Division opponent Western Michigan University, March 3, at the Convocation Center. With the win, EMU improves to 8-19 (4-11 MAC) on the year while Western Michigan falls to 7-21 (3-12 MAC).

Sophomore Sydney Huntley-Rogers chipped in 10 with freshman Brittany Simmons hitting four free throws down the stretch to help the Eagles record the comeback win. With the score knotted at 64 with 40 seconds remaining, Simmons stole the ball and calmly made both free throws to give EMU a 66-64 lead with 34.6 to go in the contest. The Eagles stepped it up defensively on the next possession, forcing another Bronco turnover. James then split a pair at the line to increase the lead to three. Western answered to cut the lead back to one, but Simmons once again was a perfect two-for-two at the line to push the EMU advantage back to three. WMU’s three-point shot attempt as time was winding down was no good, securing the win for the Green and White. After chipping away at a 19-point first half deficit to enter the break down by nine, the Eagles quickly fell behind by 15 points in the early minutes of the second half. EMU then began chipping away at the lead, pulling within six off a James’ trey with just under 12 minutes remaining.

The Broncos continued to hold the Eagles without a field goal until the 12:35 mark when a HuntleyRogers’ steal and score brought the Eagles within 15-4. The Bronco lead grew to as many as 19 at the 7:28 mark, but a quick 11-0 EMU spurt brought the home team back within eight off a Schrock reverse lay-in with just under five minutes remaining in the first frame.

GAME 29 • Mar. 11, 2009 • Quicken Loans Arena • Cleveland, Ohio

CLEVELAND, Ohio– Despite a career-high 31 points from freshman Tavelyn James, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team could not manage to hold off Miami University down the stretch, as the Eagles fell, 75-69, Wednesday afternoon, March 11, to the RedHawks in the opening round of the 2009 Kraft Mid-American Conference Tournament. James tallied 31 points on 12-for-24 shooting from the field in the loss, including a 4-for-7 mark from beyond the arc. Miami’s Jenna Schone finished just behind James, scoring 30 points on 10-for-16 shooting, including a 6-for-9 mark from beyond the arc. The Eagles finish the season with an 8-21 record, while Miami improves to 16-14 with the win and moves on to the quarterfinals to face Ball State University, March 13. The Eagles were up by as many as 16 points with 11:39 remaining in the game, but the RedHawks managed to pull within four points with less than four minutes remaining, as a jumper by Stephanie Ford limited EMU to a 67-63 lead. Schone pulled Miami within two with fewer than three minutes remaining, as her layup made it a 67-65 game and forced EMU head coach AnnMarie Gilbert to call a timeout. After the timeout, the RedHawks closed the game on a 10-2 run, as EMU could not find an answer for Schone down the stretch, as she scored 10 points in the final three minutes to help Miami move on in the tournament and end EMU’s season. The two teams traded basket-for-basket in the opening frame, but back-to-back three pointers by junior Mary Lawson and James with under seven minutes remaining in the first half to give EMU a 27-23 advantage. The Eagles closed the half on an 11-5 run to carry a 38-28 lead into intermission. The Eagles had one of their best first half outputs from beyond the arc in the opening frame, as EMU shot 50 percent (6-for-12) from long distance, while the RedHawks shot just 2-for-6 from three-point land. Miami carried a 23-19 edge on the boards into the half and shot 41 percent from the field (12-for-29). The Eagles shot 37 percent (11-for-30) from the field in the opening frame, as James and sophomore Cassie Schrock each tallied a game-best 11 points in the first 20 minutes. Schrock finished with 19 points, including a 12-for-12 mark at the charity stripe, but left the game with an injury late in the second half. The Eagles shot 37 percent (22-for-60) from the field in the loss, including a 9-for-19 performance from beyond the arc.

Building a Legacy – 2009-10 Eastern Michigan University Women’s Basketball

The 2003-04 Championship Run At times, dreams seem to arrive out of nowhere. For the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball program, the 2003-04 campaign was one of those dreams. In the sixth year under the tutelage of Head Coach Suzy Merchant, a collection of underclassmen and one senior were able to accomplish what any young, up-and-coming program needs to gain recognition at the national level: qualify for an NCAA tournament. The Eagles did accomplish that feat, but it did not arrive without a season full of “firsts.” That series of occurrences began midway through the regular Mid-American Conference season. After starting the league slate with a 5-3 record, the Eagles hosted their archenemies in the MAC over the past 12 years, the Kent State Golden Flashes, Feb. 4. EMU had not defeated Kent since 1992, and the G olden Flashes came into the contest with an unusually mediocre 4-3 conference mark. Eastern held a slim lead throughout the majority of the game, but a combined 36 points from senior co-captain Marion Crandall and freshman Sarah VanMetre gave the Eagles a much-needed 63-58 win, the first time any EMU player had tasted victory over the Golden Flashes in more than a decade. Prior to that game, EMU had won back-to-back contests versus Bowling Green and at Western Michigan, but the emotional victory over Kent State may have triggered what was to come for the remainder of the conference schedule. The Eagles rolled off five consecutive wins, including blowout victories over Marshall and Toledo. EMU did absorb one more loss, an 89-81 decision at Ohio, Feb. 25. But that may have been exactly what the Eagles needed heading into the MAC tournament. In all, Eastern won nine out of its final 10 games heading into the postseason, but none was more important than the season finale at Central Michigan, March 2. 122

Eastern had clinched at least a share of its first-ever MAC West title with an 84-74 decision over Ball State, Feb. 21, but the team wanted the championship all to itself. The loss at Ohio prevented the celebration, however, and EMU would have to come up with a win at arch-rival CMU’s Rose Arena to gain sole possession of the division championship. It was apparent that the Eagles didn’t want things to come down to the wire, as they opened up a 45-28 lead and coasted to victory in the second half, putting four players in double figures in the effort. The ensuing stop on EMU’s magical season was the 2004 Kraft MAC Tournament. The Eagles were awarded the second seed in the field, and were able to sit out the first round with a bye. EMU started its tournament run in Cleveland, Ohio, where EMU had yet to win a game in Gund Arena. The Eagles’ first round opponent was seventh-seeded Toledo, a team that EMU had split the regular-season series with. A clock delay seemed to alter both teams’ rhythms in the first half, as sloppy play turned into a turnover-plagued fist frame, and EMU entered the locker room at halftime with a slim 24-23 lead. The second half was a different story, however, as the Eagles’ defense clamped, down not allowing a Toledo field goal for the opening 4:40 of the half, opening up a 35-25 lead at the initial media time-out. Junior sharpshooter Ryan Coleman provided the team a quick scare, as she hit the floor hard with 17:30 left, and would not return until the 5:45 mark. Her return sparked the Eagles, however, as she scored seven points on 3-for-3 shooting from the field and helped EMU open up a 55-43 lead with 2:31 left, letting EMU coast to the semifinals with a 60-47 win. Next up for the Eagles in their pursuit of a conference tournament title was a matchup with No. 6 Marshall, arguably the most physical team in the MAC. In the two teams’ lone meeting of the regular season, the Eagles

2009-10 Eastern Michigan University Women’s Basketball MEDIA GUIDE


The 2003-04 Championship Run came away with a 66-49 win in Huntington, W.Va., in the game following the win over Kent State. The semifinal matchup would be much closer. Marshall cut a six-point EMU lead to 65-64 with under three minutes remaining in the game, but the Eagles converted a perfect 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final 2:12. Success at the charity stripe proved to be the difference, and perhaps the only defining statistic that EMU had a significant advantage over the Thundering Herd. For the game, the Eagles were 22-of-28 from the line in what Head Coach Suzy Merchant called “one of the most physical games this program has ever played in.” EMU was outrebounded, 44-32, but in the end, was a 75-70 winner, advancing to the championship round of the tournament. The Eagles’ opponent in the finals was a surprise to many MAC fans. Bowling Green, the No. 4 seed, needed two back-to-back buzzer beaters to oust Western Michigan and Miami to advance to the championship, setting up a game with EMU that had occurred just once in the regular season. In that lone meeting, the Falcons threw everything they had at the Eagles in Ypsilanti, as EMU escaped with a 61-59 victory, Jan. 27. In the finals, however, the Eagles were able to take control of the game in its early stages. EMU never trailed in the contest, and led by double-digits for much of the first half, limiting the Falcons to just two field goals over the final 12:17. The Eagles entered the locker room at halftime with an eight-point lead, but Bowling Green would not fade in the second half. The Falcons cut the lead to five with under 10 minutes remaining, but a balanced scoring effort that saw each EMU player score at least seven points and effective lategame free-throw shooting proved to be the difference, as the Eagles won their last 12th out of 13 games. It turned out to be the most important and influential win in the program’s history. With the regular-season and tournament championships in hand, the Eagles were poised for their next mission, which would be even more unfamiliar: a berth and run in the 2004 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. With the tournament final occurring on Saturday (March 20), Eastern would have to wait one more day for the fate of

its first-round opponent. The team gathered for a celebration dinner and “selection-show” party at the Washtenaw Country Club the following day, and when ESPN aired the show, Eastern learned it would be a No.14 seed in the Mideast Region, and would draw No. 3 seeded Boston College, which had recently wrapped up a championship itself by winning the Big East tournament. History was not on EMU’s side. While upsets occur regularly on the men’s side of the NCAA’s, a 14-seeded team had never beaten a third seed in the history of the women’s NCAA field. The game was scheduled for March 20 at St. John Arena on the campus of The Ohio State University. EMU fans rallied around the success of the team, and before its bus departure from Ypsilanti, March 23, a group of more than 100 Eastern fans gathered in the atrium of the Convocation Center to send the team off and show their appreciation for what had already been accomplished. They were also led to US-23 by a police escort to begin the trip. When the team arrived in Columbus, it was all business. The team had scheduled news conferences and a shootaround shortly thereafter, March 24, and was slated to play its game in the second slot, March 25, following the Ohio State versus West Virginia contest. While the home Ohio State crowd dwindled minimally, 8,159 fans were still in attendance for EMU-Boston College, by far and away the largest crowd EMU had played in front of this season. The atmosphere was also much different than a home game at the Convocation Center. It was a neutral site with many neutral fans, and the game was televised nationally in its entirety on ESPN 2 and ESPN. Shortly after the opening tip, it seemed as if the unfamiliar surroundings had begun to influence the Eagles’ composure. Boston College came out of the gate firing, converting its first nine field goals, forcing EMU into a timeout with 14:20 left, already trailing by 18 points, 22-4. Following the break, however, the Eagles went on a quick 7-2 run on back-to-back field goals by VanMetre and junior Melis Ulker, to pull within 15, 24-9, with 11:18 remaining. The Eagles kept chipping away at the BC advantage, and

The 2003-04 Championship Run pulled within single digits for the first time on a VanMetre three-point field goal with 6:24 left, trimming the edge to 28-20. The teams combined for just four field goals for the remainder of the first half, and with five seconds left, a jumper by Boston College’s Jessica Deveny gave the BC Eagles a 34-24 lead heading into the intermission. VanMetre paced the Eagles with six points, while BC was led by All-American Amber Jacobs with nine first-half points. BC opened up as large as a 13-point lead in the first five minutes of the second half, but back-to-back Ulker field goals kept EMU within 11, 40-29, heading into the first media time-out at 15:09. The edge fluctuated between eight and 13 points over the next 7:20, and the Eagles were within 10, 50-40, with 7:52 remaining. Over the next 4:05, EMU posted a 12-3 run, paced by six quick points by Coleman, and pulled within just one point, 53-52, on a jumper by junior Erika Ford that led into the game’s final media timeout (3:48 left). Eastern took its only lead of the game with 3:22 left, when Coleman came out of the media timeout and hit a jumper to give EMU a 54-53 edge. BC’s Deveny answered the next time down the floor, however, with a three-pointer to give the lead back to BC, 56-54, with 3:02 left. Neither team scored over the ensuing 2:20 before sophomore Nikki Knapp tied the game at 56-56 with 40 seconds left on an inside power layup. BC immediately called a time-out and drew up what would be the go-ahead shot. BC missed the initial jumper with 28 seconds left, but grabbed the offensive rebound that set up Kathrin Ress’ layup underneath the basket with 12 seconds left, leaving EMU trailing by two points. The Eagles took a timeout and set up a play for their best scorer, Coleman. EMU went for the win, but Coleman’s three-pointer at the buzzer fell short of the goal, and the comeback effort ended in the 58-56 loss. Overall, for the final 35 minutes of the game, EMU outscored BC, 52-36. While the entire season was a series of “firsts,” Merchant did not believe that her 2004 team’s appearance in the

124

NCAA tournament will be the last time it will make a mark on the national level. “We’ll be back,” Merchant said following the game. “This group (Crandall was the only loss for next season) is so levelheaded, there are no prima donnas on this team. There’s a target on our backs now, and I think we’re ready for that if we keep outworking people. We’re not some one-hit wonder where the ride is over. We’ll be back.” Coleman and Ford, both captains, seconded their coaches’ comments: “That was one of many big shots to come in the NCAA tournament,” Coleman said after coming up short on the game’s final play. “I look forward to shooting more of them, and next time, that shot is going to fall.” “We’re going to be as good, if not better next year,” Ford added. While EMU’s team racked up honors in their dream run, the individuals on the team were also recognized for their accomplishments in the 2003-04 season. The Eagles landed four players on All-MAC squads with Coleman being named to the first-team, Knapp to the second-team, Crandall, an honorable mention pick, and VanMetre to the All-Freshman squad, along with being named Sixth Man of the Year.
