Media Guidelines The 2012-13 Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball media guide is designed to assist the media with its coverage of EMU basketball. Additional information, statistics and photographs may be acquired by contacting Greg Steiner in the EMU Athletic Media Relations Office, Suite 307, Convocation Center, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48197. Press Credentials Requests for working press space should be made in writing at least one week before the date of the home contest to the EMU Athletic Media Relations Office. The request should be made by the sports director of the newspaper, magazine, radio or television outlet wishing to send a reporter(s) to the game. Outlets that have made proper credential requests are entitled to receive copies of the final game statistics, play-by-play and a scoring summary, as well as any press information provided by the competing institutions. Confirmation of the request will be made by EMU Athletic Media Relations personnel. Press credentials WILL NOT be issued to spouses, friends or children. Press row is a working area. Press credentials can be picked up in the EMU Athletic Media Relations Office during the week of a home contest. If credentials are requested and approved, they will only be mailed if the request is granted at least two weeks prior to the game. Any credentials not picked up will be left at the will call window.

Interview Policy (Mid-Week) Most practices are open to the media. However, all media are recommended to make an advance call to the EMU Athletic Media Relations Office to check on the status of practice for a particular day. Failure to do so may result in an individual’s removal from the venue. Head Coach Tory Verdi is available to speak to the media via phone MondayThursday mornings. Individual players are available for interviews Monday-Wednesday. Please contact the EMU Athletic Media Relations Office at least 24-hours in advance to set up interviews. Players should not be contacted for interviews at their residences, on their cell phones, via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and all other social networking entities. During regular season practices, still photographers and videographers will be allowed to shoot only during pre-practice individual drills, which usually last approximately 10 minutes at the beginning of practice. Media members covering practices or scrimmages will not be permitted to report any scouting information (formations, personnel groupings, etc.) without first speaking with a member of the EMU coaching staff or the media relations office. Failure to adhere to this guideline could result in the closing of all practices and scrimmages to the media. First-year players, including freshmen and transfers, will be made available to the media only after they have made a significant contribution or at the coach’s discretion.

On the Internet Information will be updated regularly at EMU’s official athletics website. For media information, go to the women’s basketball web page to find updated PDF files containing notes, statistics, rosters and schedules.

Season Notes » VERDI BEGINS A NEW ERA OF EMU WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: First-year EMU Head Coach Tory Verdi and his staff of Rob Norris, Candice Finley, Kristin Haynie and Nikki Bober bring 41 years of combined coaching experience to the Eagles that include stops along the way in the Big XII, the Metro Atlantic Athletic, the Ohio Valley and the WNBA, to name a few. Verdi spent the last two years helping turn the University of Kansas into a national power under Head Coach Bonnie Henrickson. In 2011-12, Kansas posted a 21-13 overall record and an 8-10 league mark to finish tied for sixth place in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks were awarded an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament and then surprised the hoops world with wins in the first and second rounds to advance to the team’s first NCAA “Sweet 16” since 1998. » ALL-TIME IN SEASON LID LIFTERS: The Nov. 11 contest against Northeastern marks the start of Eastern Michigan University’s 37th year of women’s basketball which began in 1976-77.

Head Coach Tory Verdi Tory Verdi Head Coach ~ First Season at EMU Keene State, 1996

When the Eastern Michigan University athletics department was searching for a head women’s basketball coach to lead the team into the future, there was one name that continued to move to the top of the list — Tory Verdi. Verdi came highly touted as someone that would provide some excitement and stability into the program to help continue the success of the EMU women’s basketball. The 2012-13 season is Verdi’s first as head coach after being named to the position April 26, 2012, after spending the previous two season as an assistant women’s basketball coach at the University of Kansas. The 39-year old Verdi has strong ties throughout the Midwest and has worked at every level of women’s basketball. An experienced coach at both the college and professional levels, he has been a part of 12 teams that have participated in the postseason since the 2001-02 campaign. “We are excited about having Tory Verdi leading our women’s basketball program into the future,” EMU Director of Athletics Dr. Derrick Gragg said of the addition of Verdi. “Tory is one of the most well-rounded assistant coaches I have encountered. Not only has he been an assistant at two Big 12 programs for women’s basketball who advanced to the “Sweet 16” in recent years, he has also been an assistant in the WNBA and for a men’s college basketball program as well. He is known as an outstanding recruiter and has been involved with winning programs everywhere he has been.” In 2011-12, Kansas posted a 21-13 overall record and an 8-10 league mark to finish tied for sixth place in the Big 12 Conference. The Jayhawks were awarded an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament and then surprised the hoops world with wins in the first and second rounds to advance to the team’s first NCAA “Sweet 16” since 1998. The Jayhawks, who finished the season ranked No. 25 in the final USA Today/ESPN’s Coaches Poll, knocked off 23rd ranked Texas, Jan. 4, for KU’s first Big 12-opening victory since 2006 and the program’s first road win over a ranked opponent since 2000. The squad would also go on to upset No. 21 Texas Tech, No. 17 Nebraska and No. 7 Delaware. Directly working with the post players, Verdi helped Carolyn Davis earn first team All-Big 12 honors as well as garnering honorable mention All-America accolades from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). She also became the 14th Jayhawk to amass at least 1,000 points and 500 rebounds in a career. Davis was named to the watch lists for the Naismith Wooden and Wade trophies, while ESPN.com called the 6-foot-3 post player one of the top five centers in America. Meanwhile, Aishah Sutherland was an honorable mention AllBig 12 pick after becoming just one of four players in the league to rank in the top 10 in the conference in both scoring (13.9 36

ppg) and rebounding (8.9 rpg). Fellow post player Tania Jackson grabbed academic honors from the league office as well. Verdi was instrumental in getting Asia Boyd and Chelsea Gardner to decide to play in Lawrence, Kan. A product of Detroit’s Renaissance High School, Boyd was the 39th-best player in the country in the 2011 recruiting class and the second-ranked player out of Michigan by ESPN’s Hoopgurlz.com. Meanwhile, Gardner named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC) All-State Team in 2010-11 while earning back-to-back all-district first team appointments. In his first year at Kansas in 2010-11, he helped the team to a 21-13 (6-10 Big 12) mark and an appearance in the Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). Before heading to KU, Verdi spent five seasons at former Big 12 foe Nebraska from 2005-10 as the offensive coordinator and post players’ coach. While Verdi was on staff, the Cornhuskers completed their most successful season in school history in 2009-10, compiling a 32-2 record, a Big 12 regular-season title and a trip to the NCAA Sweet 16. That same season, Verdi coached Kelsey Griffin to first-team AllAmerica status. Griffin, the 2010 Big 12 Player of the Year, went on to become the No. 3 overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft after a decorated career at NU. The forward left the program as the Huskers’ second-best rebounder and ranked No. 3 on the career scoring list. She also ranks in the top 10 for career scoring average and blocked shots. Verdi’s guidance also extended over to All-Big 12 performers Cory Montgomery and Danielle Page. When Griffin missed the entire 2008-09 season with an ankle injury, Montgomery stepped up to carry the load for the Huskers inside. Verdi helped develop Montgomery’s game under the basket as she went on to rank among the top 10 players in the Big 12 in both scoring and rebounding that season and was recognized by the league as an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention selection. Following her senior season in 2009-10, when she was named to the All-Big 12 First Team, Montgomery left Nebraska as the school’s No. 12 all-time scorer and 13th-best rebounder. Page was also an eventual WNBA player who worked under Verdi’s direction. After earning All-Big 12 Honorable Mention accolades in 2007-08, Page spent the 2008 WNBA season with the Connecticut Sun. Prior to his stint at Nebraska, Verdi served as the interim head coach at Columbia University from February through April of

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located

Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 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 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.

The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted more than 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, 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 23,000 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.

Our History

Founded in 1849, 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 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 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), new Student Center (2006), and the new Science Complex (2010).

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.

The EMU Identity Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames “Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi”and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. On Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee, composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name “Hurons” from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Indian logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express.

Student-Athlete Support Student-Athlete Support Services

Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. 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 student-athlete, 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 studentathlete 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.

Athletic Training and 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. The 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. Tara MasterHunter, Dr. Zoe Foster, Dr. David Alvarez, Dr. George Pujalte, Dr. Wally Roeser, Dr. Bruce Miller, Dr. Don Wurtzel 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 and the team dentist. 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 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 student-athlete 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 operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Sports Performance/Strength and Conditioning

Our Sports Performance Program applies a complete approach to scientifically and practically progress each individual athlete. Our purpose is to improve all components that will aid in achieving maximal athletic performance while reducing the occurrence of injury. We incorporate athletic based, free weight, multi-joint, and multi-directional movements which vary from a diverse collection of strength and conditioning disciplines to prepare each athlete for the general and specific demands of their sport. Standards that will be implemented at all times are: Integrity, Attention to Detail, Quality before Quantity, and Execution before Innovation. Assuming quality, thought and effort have been put into a sports performance program, all else being equal, the program feels that these three components are usually separating an elite level program from the average. Incorporating Daily Competitions – The ability for athletes to compete in an every day setting is critical to the success of team and individual sports. Anything from team relays, to 1 on 1 tug of wars, to using a dumbbell weight heavier than the previous week. I simply make the statement to my teams, “WIN THE DAY.” Work harder – beat your last week’s sets/reps/weight/time, COMPETE! There is competitive nature in all mankind. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort on the coaching end to see it. Fill your team with competitors and your program will take care of itself. Physical and Mental Sport Transfer – Training to the specifics of the sport, and style that the head coaches are teaching is an essential way to succeed at any level. Find out what the sport coaches are looking to achieve and speak their same language. You are an addition to their staff, hop on board and cater your philosophy to their needs. Giving each athlete specific examples of on field/on court experiences where success can either be earned or an opportunity can be lost. Being able to make athletes understand the importance of mental toughness that is needed in the weight room and how it transfers over to their sport. The pain, the physical and mental struggles they endure in each training session is setting them up for success for their competitive season. Fight for every rep just as you would for any rebound, blocked shot, interception, or stolen base. Make references back to their closest contests that might have been decided by one play – (or one rep). Positive Influential Environment – Do athletes leave the weight room looking to return for more or dreading the next time they have to mope through one of the most silent hours of their day? Each session, from the minute the first athlete walks in to the last grueling minute they are dragging out, fill the room with ENERGY!!! Push them through their toughest moments and coach every rep. Show each and every athlete that you care about their progress. Stay vocal, provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism, play that latest hip-hop track and find a way to create a positive training environment.

The Eastern Michigan University Office of Athletics Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective student-athletes, 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. 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. 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 student-athletes 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.

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. 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 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. 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 MidAmerican 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 studentathletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact Christopher Hoppe at 734.487.3263 or choppe3@ emich.edu.

Convocation Center

The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, in its 14th 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 six firstround MAC Women’s Basketball Tournament games, four first-round MAC Volleyball Tournament games and three first-round game for the men’s basketball squad. The building also played the host for the EMU women’s basketball team’s upset of the University of Michigan in the First Round of the 2011 Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). 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, John Mayer and Jay-Z. The Convocation Center is also the site for EMU’s spring and winter commencement ceremonies. 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 the 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-to-themile 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.

EMU Athletic Club

Supporting EMU StudentAthletes Since 1994 The EMU Athletic Club provides vital financial support to more than 550 student-athletes at Eastern Michigan University as they strive for excellence on the court and in the classroom. Nearly 1,000 donors generously supported our outstanding scholar-athletes each year. Established in 1994, the EMU Athletic Club raises funds in three key areas for EMU’s 21 varsity athletic teams: annual-use operating funds, endowment, and facility related projects. Today, annual-use giving is the most critical area of support needed by the Athletic Department. These contributions directly support the operating budgets of our teams and help provide the most basic needs to our coaches and student-athletes, including comprehensive national recruiting efforts, out of region travel to maintain nationally competitive schedules, equipment such as uniforms, balls, nets, bats, and much more. Gifts to any of our teams, or to the Eagles for Excellence Fund (which will be used for the most urgent needs of the athletic department), are an investment in the future leaders of the state of Michigan. Join the EMU Athletic Club today and make a difference for EMU Athletics.

Mid-American Conference Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference moves into its 66th year of service to the student-athlete. 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 A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Ford Field, Detroit), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland), softball (Firestone Stadium, Akron) and baseball (All Pro Freight Stadium, Avon, Ohio). In 2011, the MAC set a conference record with a 4-1 record in bowl games and won the prestigious ESPN Bowl Challenge Cup for the best FBS conference record in bowl games. The MAC also tied a conference record for bowl invitations in a single season as the five bowl invitations marked the fourth time in conference history (2004, 2008, 2009, 2011). The five MAC programs that were extended bowl invitations included: Temple (Gildan New Mexico Bowl), Ohio (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl), Western Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl), Toledo (Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman) and Northern Illinois (GoDaddy.com Bowl). The 2011 season also witnessed Northern Illinois win the 2011 Marathon MAC Football Championship Game with a 23-20 win over Ohio. MAC programs were a combined 4-0 against Army last season (wins by Northern Illinois, Miami, Ball State and Temple), while Temple had an impressive 38-7 win at Maryland (ACC), Western Michigan’s 38-31 win at UConn (Big East), Ohio’s 44-7 win over Marshall (Conference USA) and Ball State’s 27-20 win over Indiana (Big Ten). For the first time in its history, the MAC will have seven bowl relationships--three primary and four secondary. The three primary agreements are with the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl (Detroit, Mich.), GoDaddy.com Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise, Ida.). In addition, the MAC has secured secondary agreements with the BBVA Compass Bowl (2012-2013), the Gildan New Mexico Bowl (2012-2013), the Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl (2012-13) and the TicketCity Bowl (2012). In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC is in the fourth year of its eight-year rights agreement (through 20162017 academic years) for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal is the most extensive in the 66-year history of the conference. The agreement 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 regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship Game and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. In men’s basketball, the MAC tied a conference record as six programs received invites to postseason tournaments, highlighted by Ohio’s run to the NCAA Sweet 16 and an overtime loss to No. 1 seed North Carolina. Ohio reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Championship after tournament wins over Michigan and South Florida. The Bobcats became the first No. 13 seed to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament since Bradley in 2006. The Bobcats also became the first team from the MAC to advance to the Sweet 16 since 2002. Ohio finished No. 25 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, marking the first time the Bobcats have been ranked to end a season. The MAC had a total of six men’s basketball programs reach the postseason in 2011-12: Ohio (NCAA), Akron (NIT), Bowling Green (CIT), Buffalo (CIT), Toledo (CIT) and Kent State (CIT). Buffalo’s Mitchell Watt was named an honorable mention All-America by the Associated Press. In baseball, Kent State won the MAC championship and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA baseball tournament and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha for the first time in program history and the

70

first program from the MAC since 1976 (Eastern Michigan). The Golden Flashes began the postseason with a dramatic 7-6 win over No. 2 seed Kentucky in 21 innings in the Gary, Ind. Regional. Kent State went on to defeat Purdue and Kentucky for the second time to advance to the Super 16 Regional in Eugene, Ore. Kent State continued its dominance by winning the best-of-three game series over host Oregon to advance to the College World Series. In Omaha, Kent State opened with an 8-1 loss to South Carolina before defeating No. 1 seeded Florida, 5-4 to knock the Gators out of the postseason. Kent State finished with a 4-1 loss to South Carolina. In the process, Kent State finished the season ranked No. 6 in the nation by College Baseball and No. 8 by the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. A total of 18 MAC student-athletes were selected in Major League Baseball’s 2012 Draft – including Buffalo C Tom Murphy (Colorado, 3rd Rd., 105th overall), Ohio RHP Seth Streich (Oakland, 6th Rd., 199th overall) and Kent State LHP David Starn (Atlanta, 7th Rd., 239th overall). During the 2011-12 academic year, the University of Akron men’s soccer team witnessed sophomore Darren Mattocks and junior Scott Caldwell earn All-America status as the Zips made their fourth consecutive appearance in the NCAA postseason Round of 16 with wins over Northwestern and SMU. Northern Illinois won the MAC Championship with a 1-0 win over Western Michigan, and earned an appearance in the NCAA tournament and defeated Western Illinois before falling to Creighton. The MAC announced the addition West Virginia as an affiliate member in men’s soccer for the 2012-13 academic year as eight teams will compete in conference play. In wrestling, Central Michigan won its eleventh consecutive MAC championship, while the MAC sent 24 wrestlers to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championship. In addition, three grapplers secured All-America honors-Central Michigan’s Ben Bennett (184), Kent State’s Nic Bedelyon (125) and Ohio’s Jeremy Johnson (285). In men’s cross country, Eastern Michigan claimed its 16th conference championship, while the Eagles captured their 30th conference title in men’s swimming and diving. The 30 championship titles for Eastern Michigan in men’s swimming and diving is a conference record. Western Michigan won its ninth conference championship in men’s tennis, while Akron won both the men’s indoor and outdoor track and field championships. Kent State won its 20th MAC title in men’s golf and received its 25th NCAA appearance. The No. 17 ranked Golden Flashes advanced to the match-play portion of the NCAA Championship and secured the highest finish in school history by tying for fifth in the nation. Kent State sophomore Corey Conners earned Honorable Mention by the GCAA. Women’s athletics continued to shine for the MAC this past year. The MAC had a total of five women’s basketball programs invited to postseason tournaments. Eastern Michigan claimed the MAC tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, while Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Miami and Toledo all received at-large invitations to the WNIT Tournament. The Toledo Rockets were the defending WNIT champions and began the 2012 WNIT Tournament with wins over Detroit, Cincinnati and VCU before falling to Syracuse in overtime in the WNIT ‘Elite Eight’.

BOSTON, Mass. – Behind a record-setting, 42-point performance from senior guard Tavelyn James, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team opened up their 2011-12 campaign with an 83-53 road win over Northeastern University today, Nov. 11, at Solomon Court in Boston, Mass. The Detroit native had previously set the EMU single-game record with a pair of 40 point efforts in wins over Buffalo (Feb. 3, 2010) and Toledo (March 2, 2010). With the prolific total, James became the first Mid-American Conference women’s basketball player ever to score 40or-more points in their team’s first game of a season. The Detroit, Mich. native hit 16-of-24 shots (66.7 percent) from the floor, tying the third-most field goals made in a single game in program history which she set against Rochester, Dec. 9, 2010. She also hit 4-of-8 from beyond the arc and recorded six steals for the Green and White. Double-figure scoring by Olivia Fouty and Desyree Thomas helped them both to career-high performances. Fouty’s 12 points set a new career standard for the sophomore, while Thomas netted a career-high 10 points for the Green and White. Jewel Tunstull and Deanna Kerkhof each led the Huskies with 14 points apiece in the contest. EMU shot 55.2 percent from the field on 32-of-58 attempts while Northeastern made just 36.7 percent of its shots, connecting on 18-of-49. The Eagles out-rebounded the visitors, 37 to 25, and also made 5-of-14 from beyond the arc for 35.7 percent and would never surrender the lead throughout the entire contest. The Green and White jumped out to a 35-17 advantage after the first half of play, with the Eagles shooting 48.3 percent (14-of-29) from the floor and 50 percent (4-8) beyond the arc while holding the Huskies to just 23.1 percent (6-of-26). Neither team were able to find the bottom of the net in the first two minutes of play, but the Eagles would finally strike first 2:10 into the contest on a James jumper from Thomas. The Green and White followed with a 19-2 run through the next eight minutes of play, with James accounting for 16 of EMU’s 19 points. Eastern held the home team under 10 points for a majority of the half until NU’s Dani Iervolino connected on a triple to cut the Eagles’ lead to 17 with 6:30 remaining on the clock. EMU would close out the remainder of the half by outscoring the Huskies 8-7 and head into the locker room with an 18-point lead. The Eagles would never look back in the second half, outscoring NU 48-36 and maintaining a lead of at least 17 points throughout the remainder of the contest.

GAME 3 • Nov. 18, 2011 • Kress Events Center • Green Bay, Wisc.

YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball ran its early-season record to 2-0 with a convincing 110-31 non-conference win over a visiting Marygrove College team here Monday night, Nov. 14, in the Convocation Center. All 12 Eagles combined for the most points ever scored in a single game during the program’s 36-year history, as Green and White led by as many as 82 points in the second half. The win gives the Eagles a 2-0 record while Marygrove falls to 3-3. Senior guard Tavelyn James led the Eagles with 32 points on 12of-20 shooting, while senior center Paige Redditt added 15. Natachia Watkins and Desyree Thomas each set career-highs for points with 12 and 13 points, respectively. Olivia Fouty had a game-high nine rebounds for EMU. The Mustangs high-scorers were Keara Marks and Kaila Corrothers with six points each. The Eagles shot 50.6 percent from the field, hitting 42-of-83 shots while holding the Mustangs to just 25 percent on 11-of-44. Eastern also held a huge advantage on the boards, 57-29. The Eagles forced 36 turnovers and collected 26 steals which was good for third in the EMU single-game record book. The Eagles raced out to an early 41-0 lead, as the Mustangs were unable to score a basket until 8:55 left in the opening half. The Green and White scored 72 points in the first half, which broke the Convocation Center record for points scored in a half. The previous record was set Feb. 16, 1999, when the Eagles scored 58 points in the second half of a game with Akron. EMU also held Marygrove to just seven points in the opening half which is the second-fewest ever scored on the Green and White in a half, as Madonna was only able to score six in the first half on the Eagles in their Nov. 22, 2008, meeting. James led the Eagles in the first half with all of her 32 points while Thomas added 10. Marks paced the Mustangs with four points. EMU took a commanding 27-12 edge on the boards in the first half while making 29-of-49 shots from the field for 59.2 percent and holding Marygrove to just 3-of-17 for 17.6 percent. Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert’s Eagles started the second half just like they finished the first, on a hot streak, building their lead to as much as 82 points and cruising to the 79-point victory.

GREEN BAY, Wisc. – The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team dropped its first contest of the 2011-12 season, falling 84-53 to No. 23-ranked Green Bay Friday, Nov. 18, at the Kress Events Center. The loss drops the Eagles to 2-1 on the year, while the Phoenix improve to 3-0 overall. Tavelyn James led the Green and White offense with 26 points this evening while recording seven steals. Taylor Bird contributed with a career-high six points, while Olivia Fouty tallied four points with seven rebounds and two blocks for the Eagles. Defensively, senior Paige Redditt snagged 14 boards and registered three blocks in the contest. Julie Wojta led the Phoenix with 23 points and eight rebounds, while Adrian Ritchie and Lydia Bauer added 14 and 13 points, respectively. EMU shot just 25 percent in the contest (17-of-68) while Green Bay connected on 25-of-56 shots (46.4 percent) and hit 52.9 percent from beyond the arc (9-of-17). The Phoenix scored 38 points off of 23 Eagle turnovers and would win the battle of the boards, 46-43. The Eagles would strike first in the game after Fouty quickly laid one in off the glass after Redditt won the opening tip-off, but poor shooting plagued the Green and White, as they drained only 2-of-13 shots (15.4 percent) in the first eight minutes of play to allow Green Bay to take an early 20-6 lead. James would sink her first bucket at the 10:23 mark and quickly added a pull-up jumper and another layup on the fast break to cut the home team’s lead by 10, but the Phoenix would maintain momentum into the locker room at the half after building a 50-22 lead. In the second half, the Eagles would cut their deficit to under 30 points, but the Phoenix would maintain control of the contest and roll away with the 84-53 victory.

CHICAGO, Ill. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team downed the Ramblers of Loyola University-Chicago by a score of 63-55 today, Nov. 20 at North Park Gymnasium. The win moves the Eagles to 3-1 on the year, while the Ramblers fall to 3-1 overall. Senior Paige Redditt recorded her fifth career double-double, scoring 17 points and snagging a career-high 18 rebounds while dishing out three assists. Tavelyn James led the Eagles offensively with 20 points this afternoon, and Desyree Thomas contributed with nine points and seven assists. Patrice King led Loyola with 24 points, while Monica Albano chipped in with 16. EMU shot 38.9 percent (21-of-54) in the contest and dominated the boards, outrebounding the Ramblers 46-26. Loyola was 18-of-49 for a 36.7 shooting percentage and made 50 percent of their three-point attempts (7-of-14). In the first half, the Eagles took advantage of nine Loyola turnovers for 12 points and converted on eight second chance points. Back-to-back free throws by Redditt along with buckets by Thomas, India Hairston, and James helped string together an EMU 8-0 run mid-way through the first half to surge to a 17-6 lead over the home team, but the Ramblers would later close the gap to just two with 6:15 left in the half after Loyola’s King connected on a triple to bring the score to 27-25. Heading into the locker room, the Eagles would still hold on to their lead with a slim 31-30 advantage over the Ramblers. Loyola’s King would give her team its first lead of the game in the opening seconds of the second half on a fast break bucket to put the Ramblers up, 32-31, but the Eagles would respond with a seven unanswered to reclaim the lead. With 7:54 remaining in the game, Katie Kortekamp pushed the Ramblers ahead, 51-49, draining a long-range three-pointer while drawing the foul and successfully converting on the four-point play. Olivia Fouty helped EMU knot it up at 51-apiece on a jumper in the paint with 5:16 remaining, but Loyola retaliated with a layup of their own. EMU responded with Redditt free throws and a Fouty layup from Thomas to help the Eagles repossess the lead. With just under a minute to play and a two-point lead, the Eagles defense forced a back court violation to gain possession and draw a foul to put James at the line. She would sink both free throws and give the Green and White a 59-55 lead with just 19 seconds remaining. EMU would maintain control for the duration of the game and secure the 63-55 road victory.

ITHACA, N.Y. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team overcame a subpar shooting performance to notch a 54-52 win Friday evening, Nov. 25, against Cornell University. Senior guard Tavelyn James delivered lastminute heroics for the Eagles in a 16-point performance at Newman Arena. Cornell held a 50-49 advantage with under two minutes to play before James drilled a three-pointer from the right side to give the Eagles a one-point lead. After the Big Red notched the tying bucket with 24 seconds left, James filled a fast break layup on the ensuing possession to put EMU ahead for good as the Big Red failed to convert two desperation jumpers with the second bouncing off the rim as the buzzer sounded. The Eagles (4-1) balanced their offensive struggles with strong offensive rebounding and scoring in transition. EMU tallied 14 offensive boards on the evening and racked up 16 points via the fast break. From the field, the Green and White converted on 22-of-63 total attempts for a 34.9 percent clip. James led all scorers with 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting and 2-of-3 from three-point range. Paige Redditt and junior center India Hairston hauled a team-best in nine rebounds apiece for the Eagles, who were edged by Cornell, 39-34, in that category. Cornell falls to 1-4 on the season despite three of its players reaching double figures. Clare Fitzpatrick and Allyson DiMagno each scored 14 points while Maka Anyanwu chipped in with 12 in a losing effort. Action began with the two teams at opposite ends of the offensive spectrum as the Eagles shot just 4-of-15 (26.7 percent) from the field through the first eight minutes. Meanwhile, the Big Red sunk six of its first eight shots to take a 14-13 lead with 11:59 remaining in the half. Cornell’s lead grew to 26-19 with 4:33 to play after DiMagno hit her second triple of the game and Shelby Lyman put in a layup on consecutive possessions. Nearing halftime, the Eagles cut into their deficit with six straight points to once again make it a one-point affair, 26-25. With 33 seconds remaining, junior guard Taylor Bird hit a rainbow three-pointer from the right side of the arc to cap-off a 9-0 run and send EMU into the locker room with a 28-26 advantage. A large portion of the second half was dominated by back-and-forth action with both teams notching several key blocks under the bucket. The Eagles pushed their lead to as much as four, 48-44, when sophomore forward Olivia Fouty scored from beyond the arc with 6:54 remaining. Cornell took the lead, 50-49, with 3:40 to play on a bucket by Anyanwy. That score held until the 1:51 mark, when James fired from long range for her second three-pointer of the evening to put the Eagles back on top, 52-50. Looking to force overtime, Fitzpatrick put down an off-balance jumper with 24 seconds left to tie the score, 52-52. James wasted no time in putting the Eagles ahead for good as she raced the length of the court on the ensuing possession and filled a fast break layup.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team won its third consecutive game Sunday afternoon, Nov. 27, here at the Koessler Athletic Center against Canisuis College, 65-53. The Eagles trailed by two at halftime, but outscored the Golden Griffins, 42-28, in the final half to win by 12. The Eagles (5-1) finished with three players in double figures including sophomore forward Natachia Watkins, who notched 16 points over the final 20 minutes to finish the day with a game-leading 21 points. Senior guard Tavelyn James recorded 14 points and sophomore guard Desyree Thomas finished with 13. Senior forward Paige Redditt led all rebounders with nine boards including eight on the offensive end. The Golden Griffins (1-3) were led by Ashley Wilkes and Jen Morabito with 12 points apiece. As a team, Canisius shot 21-of-51 (41.2 percent) overall including 5-of-14 (35.7 percent) from three-point range. Eastern Michigan broke out to an early 7-2 lead due largely to terrific offensive rebounding from Redditt and junior guard Taylor Bird. Redditt grabbed a trio of offensive boards through the first four minutes and filled a put-back layup off a missed three-point attempt from James to give the Eagles a five-point lead. Despite attempting 22 shots through the first 13 minutes, the Eagles connected on just five of those tries for 15 points. The Golden Griffins gained a 16-15 lead with 7:29 to play in the half on Morabito’s second triple of the game. Canisius grew its lead to four, 19-15, before Thomas chimed in with EMU’s first three-pointer of the day to cut the deficit to one. Thomas struck with another long ball to with 2:43 remaining to put the Eagles back ahead, 22-21. That lead would not last until halftime, however, as Canisius notched a pair of buckets for a 25-23 edge at the break. The Green and White opened the second half outscoring Golden Griffins, 15-6, to take a 40-32 lead with 12:29 to play. Watkins tallied the final six points of that run with a trio of buckets. The Eagles maintained strong offensive pressure through the middle portion of the half while capitalizing on numerous Canisius turnovers. Thomas forced a mid-court turnover, rushed down the court for an easy layup, and filled a free throw after being fouled to run the EMU lead to 12, 49-37, with 7:21 remaining. Canisius pulled back to within six, 57-51, with 3:01 to play when Lennox recorded a bucket and free throw off an EMU foul. Eastern Michigan’s defense led by Redditt stood tall for the final three minutes, forcing the Golden Griffins to make mistakes under the basket. Watkins finished the second half with 16 points as the Eagles secured their fifth win of the season, 65-53.

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Eastern Michigan University Women’s Basketball Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert’s return to the Breslin Center for the first time as a head coach was spoiled by Michigan State University Saturday, Dec. 3. The Spartans, who trailed by as many as 14 points in the second half, rallied to post 60-59 overtime victory. After a back-and-fourth first half, the Eagles opened the second half on an impressive 20-11 run to take a 42-28 lead with 11:50 to play in the contest. However, Michigan State would answer with a decisive 21-8 run of its own to make it 50-49 with just 31 seconds to play in regulation. A MSU foul sent senior Tavelyn James to the free throw line with 28 seconds remaining. James sank both tosses to push the EMU cushion to three, 52-49. With the clock winding down, Jasmine Thomas took the ball on the deep wing and drilled a three-pointer with 12 seconds left to knot the score at 52. Back down the court, EMU was unable to get a shot off as time expired and the contest moved to overtime. In overtime, the two teams matched baskets early but a layup by Kiana Johnson and two free throws by Lykendra Johnson gave the Spartans a 60-57 lead with 1:26 left. James, who was held scoreless in the first half, connected on a layup with 28 ticks showing to make it 60-59. After a MSU turnover underneath the EMU basket gave the ball back to the Eagles, James would give the Green and White a last ditch attempt to escape with the victory. However, she was never able to get a clear shot at the hoop as Michigan State escaped with the thrilling one-point victory. The Eagles (5-2) were paced by James with 19 points on 7-of-25 shooting. Senior Paige Redditt posted another double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out of the contest with 4:11 to go in overtime. After a career-day at Canisius, Nov. 27, sophomore Natachia Watkins continued her strong play with 12 points, nine rebounds and two blocks for the Eagles. L. Johnson, Thomas and K. Johnson each scored in double-figures for Michigan State (6-3). L. Johnson posted her third double-double of the season with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Thomas also had 13 points, a season-high, and four steals, while K. Johnson chipped in 10 points, four assists and three steals. Each side struggled to shoot the ball in the first period, but it was the Eagles getting on the board first with a layup by Watkins just under a minute into the game. MSU would take a 9-8 edge on a Jasmine Thomas layup with 11:07 to play in the contest, for the Spartans final lead of the stanza. Another Watkins layup at the 10:37 mark was the sixth and final lead change of the half, as EMU would go on a 14-6 run to open its biggest lead of the contest at seven points, 22-15. Despite the Eagles’ lead scoring being held without a field goal, Eastern would head to the lockerroom at the break with a five-point cushion, 22-17. After an impressive opening 20 minutes of basketball, Eastern Michigan kicked it up a notch in the second half. James found her shooting touch with five quick points to push the EMU advantage to eight, 29-21 with 17:40 to go. After a quick run by Michigan State, the Eagles answered with a 13-4 run of its own capped by a Watkins jumper at the 11:50 mark to see the lead balloon to as many as 14, 42-28. MSU would not go quietly, however, posting a 14-3 run of its own over the next six minutes to cut the deficit to three, 45-42, on a pair of Porshe Poole free throws with 4:55 left in regulation. EMU would build the lead back to 50-44, but would be unable to match the dramatics of MSU the rest of the contest.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — For the first time in 31 years the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team played two overtime games in a row, but unlike the 1980 games, the Eagles dropped two in a row with the latest setback a 70-68 decision to a visiting UMKC team here Friday night, Dec. 9, in a non-conference game in the Convocation Center. Eastern lost its previous game, Dec. 3, at Michigan State in a 60-59 overtime heartbreaker. In 1980 the Eagles defeated both Pittsburgh and Northern Michigan in backto-back overtime games. This time around the Eagles trailed by just two in overtime, 70-68, when senior guard Tavelyn James, who entered the game needing 22 points to become the all-time EMU scoring leader, saw her three pointer to win the game slide off the rim with just 3.1 seconds left. EMU got the ball out of bounds after that miss, but the Eagles could not get another shot off as time expired, giving the visitors the two-point victory. James led the Eagles, now 5-3, with 19 points, giving her 1,897 for her career, trailing all-time leader Laurie Byrd (1978-82) who scored 1,899 in her illustrious Hall of Fame career. Natachia Watkins scored 18, with Desyree Thomas and Olivia Fouty added 11 each. UMKC’s Dayon Hall-Jones led all scorers with 27 points and teammate Kim Kezianya added 15 points for the Kangaroos, now 6-4 on the year. Eastern shot just 37.1 percent from the field for the game, making just 23of-62 attempts while UMKC was shooting 46.3 percent on 25-of-54 shooting. Eastern managed a 40-34 advantage on the boards and forced 21 Kangaroo turnovers. The visitors jumped out to a quick 7-2 lead in the game’s first three minutes before the Eagles went on a 12-0 run to take a 14-7 lead at the 14:13 mark on a triple by Thomas. Eastern would build that first-half advantage to 11, 34-23, at the 1:49 mark on a short jumper by India Hairston. The home squad would end the first half on a layup by Fouty with just 15 seconds left to give EMU a 36-27 lead heading into intermission. James would lead all first-half scorers with 13 while Hall-Jones tallied 12 for the Kangaroos. Eastern shot 46.7 from the field in the first half, sinking 14-of-30 attempts while UMKC was making 9-of-24 for 37.5 percent. The two teams tied on the glass with 16 each. The two teams traded buckets in the early stages of the second half before the Kangaroos began to slowly chip away at the EMU lead, cutting it to one, 40-39, with 17:01 left on a basket by Ashli Hill. The visitors forced a 43-all tie at the 13:31 mark when Hall-Jones hit a jumper that bounced twice before finding the bottom of the net. The lead see-sawed over the next seven minutes before the Kangaroos managed to take a three-point lead, 57-54, on three consecutive free throws by Dayon Hall-Jones with 6:24 left. With the game tied at 61-all, both teams had chances to gain the win in regulation in the final 35 seconds. The Eagles turned it over on their opportunity and UMKC’s Hall-Jones missed a long jumper with less than three seconds left as time expired, forcing the overtime session.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — It was a rematch of a 2011 WNIT postseason tournament game and the Eagles proved that the March 17 victory last year was no fluke as they posted a convincing 77-64 win over the University of Michigan here Sunday, Dec. 11, afternoon in a non-conference battle for Washtenaw County in the Convocation Center. Eastern and Michigan last met, March 17, 2011, right here in the Convocation Center and the Eagles posted a 67-59 win to advance in the postseason WNIT. In a pre-game ceremony this afternoon, the Eagles’ 2011 WNIT Sweet 16 banner was raised in the rafters. The pre-game banner raising was not the only highlight of the day, however, as the Eagles not only recorded the win, but senior guard Tavelyn James, broke the EMU women’s career scoring record with a 38-point effort to give her 1,935 points. James passed former EMU guard Laurie Byrd (1978-82) who scored 1,899 in her illustrious Hall of Fame career. The win boosted EMU to 6-3 on the season and broke a two-game losing streak. Michigan falls to 9-2 on the year. Backing up James’ 38 points was Olivia Fouty who turned in a doubledouble with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Michigan was led by Rachel Sheffer with 16, Courtney Boylan and Kate Thompson with 13 each while Jenny Ryan added 12. The Eagles finished the game shooting 45.5 percent, making 25-of-55 field-goal attempts and also connected on 21-of-24 free throws for 87.5 percent. The Eagles held a 37-26 advantage on the boards. Michigan would shoot 45.6 percent from the field, making 26-of-57 attempts. After trading baskets with the visitors through the first six minutes, the Eagles opened up the offense to build a 14-point lead, 27-13, at the 10:20 mark with James doing most of the damage with 19 of her 21 first-half points coming in the early going. The Wolverines managed to cut the deficit to five, 33-28, with just 52 seconds left in the first half but Fouty hit a layup with one second left to give the Eagles a 35-28 lead heading into halftime intermission. The Eagles shot 43.3 percent in the first half, making 13-of-30 shots from the field while Michigan was hitting at a 48.0 percent clip, making 12-of-25. EMU held a 17-13 advantage on the boards in the first 20 minutes. The Eagles came out of halftime on a mission, rolling the lead back up to 13, 45-32, on a layup by Paige Redditt at the 17:55 mark. After trailing by double digits through the next 12 minutes, Michigan began a comeback, pulling within five, 59-54, with 3:48 left on the clock. James hit a long three at the 2:44 mark to give the Eagles a little breathing room at 64-56 and strong shooting from the free throw line late in the game helped EMU turn in the 13-point victory.

DETROIT, Mich. — After being down by 10 points in the first half, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team rallied to force overtime before falling to the University Detroit Mercy, 70-69, Tuesday, Dec. 20, at historic Calihan Hall. With the loss, EMU falls to 6-4 while Detroit improves to 3-8. Sophomore Natachia Watkins led the Eagles with a career-best 28 points and nine rebounds while Olivia Fouty notched her third consecutive double-double with 17 points and 10 boards. Senior Tavelyn James, the nation’s second-most prolific scorer at 25.1 points per game, was held to a season-low nine points. The Titans placed three players in double-figures en route to shooting 43.8 percent (21-for-48) compared to 41.5 percent (27-for-65) for the Eagles. EMU struggled from beyond the arc, hitting just 1-of-6 (16.7 percent) compared to 35.0 percent (7-for-20) for the Titans. UDM also went to the line 31 times, connecting on a season-best 21. Jalesa Jones tallied a season-high 18 combined with 23 points from Senee Shearer to lead UDM. Jones was a career-best 11-of-12 from the free throw line, while adding three rebounds and two assists. Meanwhile, Shearer was 7-of-15 from the field with four three-pointers and 5-of-7 from the charity stripe. It was a back-and-fourth battle between the two rivals separated by just 40 miles that featured 12 ties and eight lead changes. The game was tied at 63 heading into the extra frame and again at 67-all with 3:27 left in overtime. Both teams did not score again until the 2:16 mark when Lauren Allen hit a jumper to push the Titan edge to 69-67. Following a pair of missed Detroit free throws, Shearer was able to work her way inside and corral the rebound, sending Jones to the line with 18 seconds still showing in overtime. Jones would make just one of the tosses to push the margin to three, 70-67. EMU then tried to get the ball in the hands of James, but her three-point attempt was wide. However, Fouty was underneath to grab the carom and stick it back up to get EMU within a point, 70-69, with three seconds remaining. The Titans inbounded the ball and cleared the press to seal the victory. After holding a slim one-point edge at the intermission, Eastern Michigan was never able to extend the lead beyond more than four points. After trailing 37-33 with 16:14 to play in the second half, Detroit would use a 13-4 run to go on top 57-52 with 6:14 still to play. Detroit would still cling to a five-point advantage with 4:05 to go, but Watkins keyed a 7-2 charge to knot the score at the end of regulation. James and the Eagles were frustrated out of the game by the Titans, as the Green and White missed its first nine shots, while James misfired on her first six attempts. Detroit was able to use this to its advantage to jump out to a 9-0 edge with 16:20 left in the first half. Back-to-back baskets by Fouty and senior Paige Redditt sliced the deficit to five, 9-4. But again the Titans answered to balloon the advantage to 10, 18-8, with 9:31 left in the half. EMU then came back to take the lead, 27-26 with a 19-8 run over the next eight minutes. Free throws by Brown and Shayok eventually put the Titans back in front briefly, but the Eagles added a late bucket in the half to take a 29-28 lead at the intermission.

SEATTLE, Wash. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team made the most of its first visit to the Evergreen State as they defeated Saint Louis University, 66-55, here at KeyArena in the opening round of the Washington Dental Services Holiday Hoops Tournament hosted by Seattle University. The win moves the Eagles into tomorrow’s 3:15 p.m. championship game where they will battle the host Redhawks of SU. Seven Eagles registered points in the game, with four players posting double-figure numbers in the points column. Tavelyn James paced the Green and Whites’ offensive effort with 19 points this afternoon. Desyree Thomas added 10 points with six assists and recorded a career-high seven steals in the contest, while Olivia Fouty and India Hairston each contributed with 11 points apiece. SLU’s Jacy Bradley led the Billikens with 13 points, while Courtney Webb and Desirae Ball chipped in with 12 point efforts. The Eagles (7-4) shot 46.7 percent (28-of-60) in the game, compared a 42.3 clip (22-of-52) by the Billikens (4-9). Despite shooting a mere 14.3 percent (1-of-7) from long range, the Eagles made up for it with a dominate presence in the paint, outscoring their opponent 46-14 in the key. Defensively, the Green and White would register 15 steals and scored 21 points off of 27 SLU turnovers. With six lead changes and the score deadlocked at three separate occasions in the opening stanza, the first half showcased a true back-and-forth battle between the two squads. EMU shot 41.2 percent (14-of-34) from the floor but struggled from long range, connecting on just one-of-six attempts (16.7 percent) from beyond the arc. Conversely, SLU drained 4-of-7 (57.1 percent) three-point attempts to contribute to a healthy 52.2 (12-of-23) shooting percentage in the opening half. After winning the opening tip, the Billikens netted the first points of the game on a jumper by Ball from the right elbow to give SLU a 2-0 advantage, but the Green and White would respond at the other end on the fast break layup by James to knot the score at two apiece. Down by three, the Eagles strung together a 9-0 run to build its biggest lead of the half, but the Billikins utilized its outside shooting to bring it within one at the 14:29 mark. EMU would trail with two minutes remaining, but a layup off the glass by Paige Redditt tied the score at 31-apiece before heading into the lockerroom. In the second half, a tenacious Eagles defense turned up the pressure, tallying 12 points off of 14 SLU turnovers. With 14:49 remaining in the second half, EMU took a 40-38 advantage on a layup by Thomas, and would continue to build onto its lead with another four unanswered points. A bucket by Fouty with 8:09 remaining pushed the Green and White up by eight, an advantage the Eagles would never relinquish as EMU remained in control for the remainder of the contest and sealed the 11-point victory.

SEATTLE, Wash. — Last second free throws pushed the contest just out of reach for the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team in the championship game of the Washington Dental Service Holiday Hoops Classic, as they dropped a closely fought, 75-72, battle here to host Seattle University at KeyArena this afternoon. Senior guard Tavelyn James was selected to the All-Tournament team alongside Seattle’s Kacie Sowell, Saint Louis’ Jacy Bradley, Saint Francis’ Alli Williams and Tournament Most Valuable Player, Seattle’s Talisa Rea. The Eagles held a two-point lead over Seattle with just 34.1 seconds remaining in the game, but a foul on Seattle’s Ashley Ward granted her the opportunity to give her team the lead on three shots from the charity stripe. She successfully converted on all three attempts to give the Redhawks a one-point advantage. That would be all the home team needed, as they would close out the contest, 75-72. The Eagles (7-5) shot 42.7 percent (32-of-75) compared to the Redhawks’ 55.6 (25-of-45) effort from the floor. EMU did not sink a single three-point attempt, while Seattle connected on 9-of-19 (47.4 percent) from long range. Natachia Watkins drained a career-best 11 field goal attempts to lead the Eagles with a 22-point performance. Olivia Fouty chipped in with 18 points and seven boards, while James tallied 12 points for the Eagles. Desyree Thomas snagged a career-high 12 boards and dished out seven assists while swiping the ball five times. After winning the opening tip, the Eagles’ offense surged to 10 unanswered points to start the contest, ignited by a quick bucket by James in the first six seconds of the game. A layup by Thomas and a pair of free throws from Fouty and Paige Redditt made it 8-0 in favor of the Green and White. James pushed the Eagles ahead 10-0 after laying one off the glass, but the Redhawks would respond with a 7-0 run of their own to close the gap to three. An idle EMU offense through the next two minutes of play allowed Seattle University to build a one-point lead mid-way through the half., the Eagles finally found the bottom of the net on a hard fought bucket by Redditt in the post to set the score at 16-15 in favor of EMU. From there, both teams fought in what would turn out to be a true seesaw battle, as they sought to claim a lead that changed seven times throughout the first 20 minutes of play. The Redhawks would eventually take advantage of Eagle foul trouble and turnovers in the waning minutes of the half to pull ahead by four heading into the locker room. Seattle clung its lead throughout the first 10 minutes of the second half, but the Eagles would claw back to within two at the 9:55 mark thanks to a perfectly executed pass by Thomas over a Redhawk defender that found James on the fast break. Back-to-back buckets by Fouty would give the Eagles their first lead since the 8:02 mark in the first half, and another two points from James pushed the Green and White ahead by four. Seattle’s Rhea would tie the score for the fifth time in the contest with 3:45 remaining on a long range bucket beyond the arc, however a Thomas jumper on the other end would shift the lead in the Eagles’ favor. The Redhawks evened it up once again on two free throws with just over a minute of play remaining, but once more with 56 ticks left on the clock. Seattle’s Ward drained her three free throws and another two points by Sylvia Shephard would finalized the score at 75-72.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team opened 2012 on a positive note with a 65-43 victory over the University of Wyoming Monday, Jan. 2, inside the Convocation Center. Senior guard Tavelyn James led all scorers with 27 points and sophomore forward Olivia Fouty collected a career-high 18 rebounds in the Eagles’ final non-conference game of the season. After Wyoming recovered from an early 11-0 deficit to tie the game at 13 midway through the opening half, the Eagles used a 19-2 run to take a 32-15 lead into halftime. EMU had no plans of relinquishing that lead in the second half and cruised to the 22point victory. Fouty shattered her previous game-high record of 12 rebounds with 18 Monday. The Toledo, Ohio native out-rebounded the entire Wyoming team in the first half with 15 boards (UW had 14), while adding three in the second half. She was the only player on either team with double-digit rebounds. The Eagles concluded their non-conference schedule with an 8-5 record and improved their all-time record to 16-20 in games which begin a new calendar year. As a team, the Eagles were 23-of-72 (31.9 percent) from the floor, 3-of-16 (18.8 percent) from long range and 16-of-20 (80 percent) from the free throw line. Along with James’ 27 points, sophomore forward Paige Redditt also hit double figures with 10 on 3-of-8 shooting. James was 9-of-20 from the field and 2-of-8 from beyond the arc. Junior forward India Hairston added six assists. The Cowgirls (4-9) were limited to just 14 field goals on 42 attempts (33.3 percent)—a season low in shots allowed for EMU. Chaundra Swell led Wyoming with 14 points and Ashley Sickles and Brenna Freeze had four rebounds apiece. The Green and White wasted little time flexing its offensive muscle, jumping out to an 11-0 lead just four minutes into the game. James was responsible for seven of those 11 points, sinking three of her first five shots and connecting on a free throw. Wyoming managed just four shots with five turnovers over its first nine possessions before posting a 13-2 run of its own to tie the score, 13-13, with 9:24 to play. EMU’s offense struggled after a hot start, shooting 1-of-13 (7.9 percent) during the Cowgirls’ run. Bird ended a streak of 5:43 without a made EMU field goal with 8:02 to play, when she converted from downtown for her first points of the game to put the Eagles back ahead by four, 17-13. Eastern Michigan rebuilt its commanding lead during the following minutes, with a fastbreak layup and made free throw by James giving the home squad a 28-14 edge with 4:40 to play. The Eagles ended the half on a 19-2 run for a 32-15 lead on 11-of-41 (26.8 percent) shooting. Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert’s squad was nothing short of dominant on the glass, outpacing the Cowgirs 34-14 in rebounds. Fouty contributed 15 of those opening-half boards, including eight on offense and seven on defense. James led all scorers at the break, tallying 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting and a perfect 6-of-6 effort from the charity stripe. Fouty and junior guard Taylor Bird added five points apiece and sophomore guard Desyree Thomas chipped in with three assists. Swell led the way offensively with five points for the Cowgirls, who were 5-of-20 (25 percent) from the floor and 5-of-8 at the free throw line. In the second half, the Eagles kept charging ahead as James drained a pair of treys and two layups for 10 points in a span of 2:08 to grow the lead to 47-27 with 12:06 remaining. Redditt entered double digits with a nice put-back layup off a missed Natachia Watkins jumper with 6:46 to play as the Green and White took its largest lead of the afternoon, 58-35.

MUNCIE, Ind. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball squad opened up Mid-American Conference play with a 54-51 setback against host Ball State University Thursday night, Jan. 5, at Worthen Arena. EMU had a chance to force overtime as they faced a three-point deficit with just 14.4 seconds on the clock, but the Eagles could not manage to put up a shot, allowing the Cardinals to secure the victory.

Despite struggling with a 25.9 percent (7-of-27) mark from the floor in the opening half, the Green and White fought its way to the free throw line 17 times in the first 20 minutes of play to help the Eagles to 15 of their 29 first half points. Four different Eagles made it to the charity stripe, with James sinking 8-of-9 attempts from the line. Ball State shot just 23.3 percent on 7-of-30 shooting in the half and gave up 16 points off of turnovers. The Eagles wasted no time in taking an early lead, jumping ahead 5-0 on a James bucket and free throw along with two points from Olivia Fouty in the paint. The home team would soon bring it to within one, 9-8, but EMU strung together a six-point run while also holding the Cardinals scoreless for over four minutes of play. BSU eventually clawed away to even the score at 15 on a bucket by Hitchens with 8:01 on the clock. Taylor Bird sank a free throw soon after to reclaim EMU’s lead, and a shot clock violation and offensive foul on two consecutive BSU possessions gave the Eagles an opportunity to extend its lead. Iesha Collins checked into the contest and was quickly fouled on a jumper from the top of the key. She sank both free throws to put the Green and White up, 18-15, with just over six minutes left in the half. Ball State would not relent however, responding with a three-point play at the other end. Mercedes Miller drew an EMU foul after sinking a layup off of the high glass and then sank the following free throw to knot the score at 20 points apiece. James would net seven of her 16 first-half points over the last four minutes until the break to help EMU to string together a 9-2 run. India Hairston added another two points for the Eagles before EMU headed into the locker room with a 29-22 advantage. fter 5:35 into the half, Ball State’s Shanee Jackson hit a triple from long range to cut EMU’s lead to a one possession game at 35-32, and an eventual pair of free throws by Hitchens tied it up for the third time in the contest. Desyee Thomas’ first field goal of the evening gave her squad a five point lead with just over seven minutes remaining, but the home team rallied to take a late lead in the contest. Costly EMU turnovers led to four unanswered points in the waning minutes of the game to give the Cardinals a 52-51 lead. BSU’s Brandy Woody registered two more points with only 38 seconds in regulation and Brittany Carter was fouled and sent to the line in a bonus situation to try to create a two possession lead, but her missed free throw ended up sailing out of bounds to give the Eagles one last opportunity with 14.4 left. Unfortunately, EMU could not muster up its final shot, leading Ball State to clinch the 54-51 victory.

TOLEDO, Ohio — In a battle of Mid-American Conference West Division powers, Eastern Michigan University used strong shooting and aggressive defense to disrupt the potent University of Toledo offense, en route to a ­70-66 victory Wednesday evening, Jan. 11, in front of a raucous crowd of 3,710 at Savage Arena. The loss snaps Toledo’s 17-game conference winning streak inside Savage Arena, and moves EMU to 9-23 all-time on the Rockets’ home court. UT’s last home conference loss was a 75-69 setback to Ball State on March 7, 2009. With the victory, Eastern Michigan improves to 10-6 (2-1 MAC) while Toledo goes to 8-7 (1-2 MAC). The Green and White were led by senior guard Tavelyn James with a game-high 30 points on 10-of-21 shooting in 39 minutes of work. Natachia Watkins followed with 13 points and Paige Redditt chipped in 12. Junior Taylor Bird turned in her best game as an Eagle as well with career-high eight points on 3-of-5 shooting. Yolanda Richardson and Andola Dortch each had 11 points to pace Toledo. Brianna Jones was the only other Rocket to reach double figures with 10 points off the bench. Eastern Michigan shot 50.0 percent (26-of-52) for the game, including a blistering 41.7 percent (5-of-12) from three-point range, compared to a 47.2 percent (25-of-52) clip for Toledo. However, the Rockets controlled the glass (29 to 28) but EMU forced 19 UT turnovers that led to 21 points. The matchup showcased two of the premier MAC programs over the last twoplus seasons. The Rockets have won 27 league contests since the start of 2009-10, second-highest total in the conference, while the Eagles have claimed 23 victories, fourth-most wins in that time span. Bowling Green leads the way with 29 triumphs and Kent State is third with 24 victories. The sides exchanged hoops for the opening five minutes of the contest, before the Green and White would find their rhythm to build a 24-16 advantage with 8:14 to play. Four different players found the scoring column in the run, including four points from James and a three-pointer by Bird. James would carry the Eagles the rest of the first half, scoring 17 of the squads’s final 23 points to give EMU a 47-33 advantage at halftime. The second half was a much different story as Toledo came out with a renewed fire to close the deficit to seven, 47-40, with 17:36 remaining in regulation. EMU quickly countered with a pair of baskets by Watkins and James, before Toledo answered with another run to make the score 51-50 at 13:43. Dortch had the opportunity to tie the contest, but she split a pair of charity tosses to close out rally for the Midnight Blue and Gold. Unphased, Head Coach AnnMarie Gilbert’s countered punched with an 11-0 run of their own to push its advantage back to 62-50 at the 7:31 mark. UT made one final push and received back-to-back three-point field goals from Courtney Ingersoll, as well as one from junior Kyle Baumgartner to pull with two points, 66-64, at 1:52. The Eagles missed on their ensuing field-goal attempt, but Redditt came down with the offensive carom and was hacked on the play. The Kansas City, Mo. native calmly connected on both free throws to push the lead to 68-64. Following a Toledo layup the Rockets were not forced to foul James, the MAC‘s best free-throw shooter, with only a few seconds still showing on the clock. She split the two tosses, but Redditt came up big once again with the offensive board to seal the four-point victory.

James was on fire in the first half, scoring 19 points. The Eagles shot 42.9 percent from the floor, hitting 15-of-35 shots while holding CMU to just 27.3 percent on 9-of-33. Eastern also turned over the visitors 16 times over the first 20 minutes. The two teams traded buckets though the early stages of the second half with Eastern slipping away to an 18-point lead, 51-33, with 16:37 left. Central would then go on a 12-2 run to trim the deficit to eight, 53-45, with 12:55 left on a basket by Bracey. Eastern would boost its lead back to double digits, at 61-50 on a Watkins layup, but Central would come right back to cut it to seven, 61-54, with 6:33 left. That would be as close as the visitors would get, however, as the Eagles stayed tough defensively to gain the 13-point win.

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — In a battle of Mid-American Conference division leaders, Bowling Green State University used strong shooting and aggressive defense to disrupt the potent Eastern Michigan University offense, en route to a 70-54 victory here Sunday afternoon, Jan. 22, at the brand-new Stroh Center. With the loss, Eastern Michigan falls to 12-7 (4-2 MAC) while Bowling Green goes to 16-3 (6-0 MAC). The victory is the 10th consecutive by the Falcons in the series, and drops EMU to 4-24 all-time in Bowling Green, Ohio. The Green and White were led by senior guard Tavelyn James with a team-high 29 points in 39 minutes of work. Sophomore Natachia Watkins followed with 10 points and Paige Redditt chipped in seven points and 14 rebounds. Alexis Rogers lead all Bowling Green players with 30 points. Chrissy Steffens notched 10 points followed by eight each from Jasmine Matthews and Jessica Slagle. Eastern Michigan shot 27.3 percent (15-of-31) for the game to go along with 72.4 percent (21-of-29) from the free throw line. Meanwhile, Bowling Green managed a 51 percent (25-of-49) clip. However, the Eagles controlled the glass (39 to 33) and forced 21 Falcon turnovers that led to 12 points. Sunday’s game extended a streak of 13 consecutive meetings between EMU and BGSU that featuring the league’s divisional leader. The last time neither side was in first place was Jan. 27, 2004. Ironically, EMU and BGSU would next square off in the MAC Tournament title game, March 13, with the Eagles advancing to the NCAA Tournament with a 65-56 victory. BGSU has been in first place in 12 of those games with EMU holding down the divisional lead in five contests. Additionally, both teams have been first in their respective divisions four times (2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012). BGSU jumped out to an early 5-0 edge before EMU returned the favor with a 5-0 spurt of its own to knot the score. However, the offense for the Eagles would slow, as the Falcons opened a six point lead on a Slagle jumper with 15:32 showing. The BGSU run continued when Alexis Rogers completed the old-fashion three-point play followed by a triple by Jillian Halfhill to make it 24-12 at the 11:11 mark. The defense would step up to hold the Falcons without a score for more than two minutes combined with James finding her offensive rhythm to make it 26-19 at the 7:47 mark. But then the usually the potent EMU offense went ice-cold, going without a score for the next six and a half minutes. BGSU pushed the advantage to 16 points at 41-25 with a 15-6 run as the team’s headed to the lockerroom at the break. The Green and White’s lone points during the stretch can via free-throws by James and Watkins before the Thomas runner in the lane with 21 seconds left to play in the stanza. After shooting 61-percent in the opening half, the stellar shooting of the Falcons continued following the break with the deficit standing at 19, 44-25, on a Rogers three-point play. The tide was slowing turning in favor of Eastern Michigan. A pair of free throw tosses by Olivia Fouty at the 11:39 mark keyed the EMU offense to a 13-2 run over the ensuing 5:03 to cut it to 58-47. But after a technical foul against the BGSU bench was whistled, the Falcons would answer with their own 7-2 run to push the cushion back to 16.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team took a cross divisional Mid-American Conference matchup Wednesday, Jan. 25, when they topped the Buffalo Bulls at Alumni Arena. The Eagles took an 11-point lead into the half and never looked back as they knocked-off the MAC East opponent 72-54 on their home floor. With the win, the Green and White improve their record to 13-7 (5-2 MAC) on the season. The Bulls fell to 6-15 (1-6 MAC) on the 2011-2012 campaign with the loss. Tavelyn James became the fifth most prolific scorer in Mid-American Conference women’s basketball history by hitting a fast-break layup for her second basket of the game at the 8:06 mark in the first half. With the basket, James took over the five spot from Mimi Olson (2,144 career-points), who played at the University of Toledo from 1993-97. James led all-scorers with 34 points while the Paige Redditt added 11 points from the floor. Desyree Thomas chipped-in with nine points and Natachia Watkins notched eight for the Eagles. Olivia Fouty led the Green and White on the boards by pulling down 10 rebounds, while Redditt caromed seven on her own. Thomas nabbed five steals while giving dishing out seven assists in the Eastern win. James and Redditt each added four steals in the victory. The Eagles opened the scoring when Watkins hit a jumper from the right-side elbow near the 18-minute mark, giving EMU the 2-0 edge early. However, the Bulls return-fired with a 5-0 run when UB hit a three-ball from the Bulls’ Brittney Hedderson and an offensive put-back from Beth Christensen. Eastern regained the lead when Watkins knocked down a put-back at the 12:26 mark, giving the Eagles a 6-5 tally. Fouty was able to add-on to the Eagle lead when she caromed an offensive rebound and dropped a layup in for two-points making it 8-5 in favor of the Green and White. The Bulls completed 7-0 run to take a 17-15 lead. Eastern did not deter and took the lead back after hitting a 13-3 run, giving it a 28-20 lead with less than three minutes to play in the opening half. James dropped four-straight triples to give EMU a 34-23 lead heading into the half. James was also the Eagles’ leading scorer in the opening half by recording 18 points in the first 20 minutes of play. The senior went 7-of-11 from the field, including 4-for-6 from three-point land. Watkins was able to knock down three baskets and a pair of free ones, good for eight points. Fouty was the Green and White’s leader on the glass as she caromed seven boards in the opening half. As a team, the Eagles went 13-of-33 from the floor, good for a 39.4 percent, but it was James who was the only three-ball threat for EMU in the first half as she took all-six of the Green and White’s shots from beyond the arc in the opening 20 minutes of play. EMU’s defense was pesky in the first half as they held the Bulls to a 28.0 percent shooting percentage, including going just 7-of-25 from the floor. The Eagles also caused 16 first half Buffalo turnovers and generated seven steals from the defensive side of the floor. EMU was also able to keep the Bulls from scoring a field goal for the final six-minutes and 33-seconds of the first half. Thomas opened the scoring for EMU in the second half by converting a three-point play after hitting a layup while being fouled. After hitting the free-throw to follow, Eastern took a 37-23 lead. The Green and White would not relinquish their lead throughout the entire second half, with their edge staying in double-figures throughout the majority of the final 20 minutes of play. The Eagles’ largest lead came at the 1:51 mark when they took a 20-point lead. The Bulls did come within nine when Hedderson knocked down a mid-range jumper to make it 59-50 in favor of Eastern. However, the Eagles were able to regain their double-digit lead and take down Buffalo 72-54.

ATHENS, Ohio — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team improved its Mid-American Conference mark to 7-2 (15-7 Overall) Wednesday evening, Feb. 1, after defeating Ohio (10-13, 3-6 MAC), 63-53 in a cross-divisional match up here in the Convocation Center. The win preserves EMU’s partial possession of first place in the MAC West Division, as Toledo also picked up a win this evening to maintain the two teams’ tie atop the division. Tavelyn James led the Eagles with 29 points after connecting on 8-of-24 (33.3 percent) from the floor, including a 4-of-12 (33.3 percent) effort from beyond the arc. James’ performance tonight moved her up the ranks in a slew of MAC career categories. Her 29 points give her 2,235 for her career and move her into fourth place all-time in conference history, surpassing Carrie Moore’s (2003-07) 2,224-points with Western Michigan University. James also surpassed Amy Sherry’s (Kent State, 1991-96) 776 career made field goals to take sole possession of sixth-place in that respective category with 779. Olivia Fouty recorded her fifth double-double of the season, tallying 12 points while snagging 10 boards and registering three blocks, while Natachia Watkins earned her second double-double after posting 10 points and 10 boards this evening with one block and a steal. Ohio’s Tenishia Benson led the Bobcats with 15 points, while Shavon Robinson added another 14 for the home team. EMU shot 41.1 percent (23-of-56) for the contest and hit 13-of-14 from the charity stripe. The Eagles defense forced 20 turnovers in the contest and did not allow an Ohio field goal until nearly eight minutes into the opening half. EMU would also win the battle of the boards, snagging 41 rebounds compared to Ohio’s 27. Both teams remained scoreless through the first two minutes of play, but Watkins finally put the Green and White on the board at the 18:19 mark on a baseline drive to the rim. Post points from Fouty and Paige Redditt helped string together an EMU 8-2 run for a two-possession lead, but the Bobcats converted on four early free throws and cut EMU’s lead to four. James surpassed the 500-point plateau for the season after connecting on a long-range triple with 9:41 remaining to put her team up by six, but the Bobcats would slowly claw their way to within one, 19-18, on a Mariah Bynard triple at the other end with just over seven remaining on the clock. Both teams exchanged buckets in the waning minutes, but the Eagles would head into the locker room with a 33-26 lead after shooting a healthy 46.4 percent (13-of-28) in the first half of play. The Bobcats connected on 8-of-20 (40 percent) with 3-of-9 coming from beyond the arc, but were outworked on the boards, 33-26. In the opening minute of the second half, EMU quickly expanded its lead to 11 thanks to lay ups by James and Watkins. Ohio later cut its deficit to four on a pair of free throws by Robinson with 7:17 on the clock, but the Green and White would never look back, outscoring the Bobcats 16-13 through the remainder of the contest to seal the 61-53 road victory.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — Natachia Watkins snagged a career-best 14 rebounds to go with a game-high 21 points as one of three Eastern Michigan University players with double-doubles, highlighting a 77-66 victory over Miami University in a Mid-American Conference crossover showdown at the EMU Convocation Center on Saturday. Paige Redditt equaled Watkins’ 21 points to go with 13 boards and Olivia Fouty chipped in 12 points and 10 caroms, as the Eagles (16-7, 8-2 MAC) won their third-consecutive decision over the RedHawks (17-6, 7-3 MAC). Courtney Osborn led Miami with 19 points. The Eagles forced seven turnovers and held the RedHawks to 2-for-8 from the floor to start the second period, which fueled a 19-4 run to build a 53-38 lead with 12:35 left. An 11-4 run by MU cut the lead to eight with 6:44 to go, but it would get no closer. The Eagles used a 16-5 run to open up a 12-point lead midway through the first frame, but the RedHawks’ defense tightened to hold the Green and White 4:32 without a field goal late in the first half. The stingy defense allowing the Red and White to take its first lead of the contest since the game’s opening possession on a three-pointer by Osborn with 58 seconds till halftime, 34-32. A pair of free throws by Desyree Thomas, who equaled the program’s second-highest single-game assist total with 13, sent the teams into the break tied at 34. Tavelyn James led all scorers at the half with 12 points and played all 20 minutes despite picking up two early fouls. The senior guard, who moved into sixth in conference history on the career three-pointers made chart (269), finished with 18 points on 8-for-16 from the floor. The Eagles shot 49 percent from the floor, including 33 percent from the arc (2-for-6), while the RedHawks managed 42 percent from the field, but just 27 percent from long range (4-for-15). The battle on the boards saw Eastern Michigan hold a 47-27 edge on the glass, which led to 18 second-chance points. Eastern Michigan extended its home winning streak to seven games, having won four straight overall. MU entered the day having won four of their previous five on the road.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — Senior guard Tavelyn James went on a three-point record-breaking streak to lead the Eagles to an 83-47 win over Kent State University here Saturday, Feb. 11, afternoon in the Convocation Center in a Mid-American Conference cross-divisional game.

The 5-foot-7 James not only broke the Eastern Michigan University women’s school record for three-point field goals in a game with 10 triples on the afternoon, but also set a single-game record for MAC-only games, and tied the MAC single-game record against all opponents. James was 10-of-18 from beyond the arc and finished the game with 40 points, the second time she has scored 40. James already held the single-game best with 42 points. James’ 10 threes tied Ohio’s Marlene Stollings (Dec. 30, 1997 vs. Robert Morris) for the MAC record against all opponents and broke the record of nine by Miami’s Jamie Stewart (Jan. 22, 2000 vs. BGSU) and CMU’s Judi Culbertson (Feb. 25, 2000 vs. Ball State) for the record in MAC games only. The 10 threes topped the mark of eight held by James (Nov. 20, 2009 at Siena) and Marion Crandall (Feb. 21, 2004 vs. Ball State). In addition to the 40 points by James, senior center Paige Redditt added 15 points and 10 rebounds and sophomore forward Natachia Watkins added six points and 11 rebounds. The victory helped the Eagles close out a six-game trip through the MidAmerican Conference East Division with a 5-1 record and also improved EMU to 17-7 overall record and 9-2 in the MAC. Eastern entered the day tied for the West Division lead with Toledo and the Rockets also posted a win, over Bowling Green, to keep the tie going. Kent State, now 5-16 overall and 4-7 in MAC play, had three players in double figures led by Itziar Llobet with 13 while Diamon Beckford and Tamzin Barroilhet added 10 each. The visitors took an early 8-2 lead in the first four minutes of the game, with their first two shots three-point goals. After Kent posted an 11-7 lead, the Eagles would go on a 10-0 run to take a 17-11 lead with 11:50 left, the last points of that stretch coming on James’ third three of the half. The EMU offense would continue to roll the rest of the half, building a 14point advantage at halftime, 37-23. James connected on 6-of-12 threes in the first half and added a free throw for 19 points while Watkins had six points with 10 rebounds for the Eagles. EMU made 14-of-33 field goals for 42.4 percent in the first half while also out-rebounding the Golden Flashes, 23-13. Kent made just 9-of-26 field goals and committed 10 turnovers. The early stages of the second half belonged to the Golden Flashes as the visitors cut EMU’s lead to seven, 39-32, with 17:11 left in the game. Eastern got back to business after that surge, putting together a 15-6 run, to take a 54-36 lead with 12:01 left and the Eagles cruised the rest of the way to record the 83-47 win.

Eastern Michigan

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team cruised to a 83-56 victory over Mid-American Conference West Division opponent, Western Michigan University, Feb. 15, at University Arena. Their sixth-consecutive win moves the Eagles to 18-7 (10-2 MAC) on the year and preserves their share of first place in the MAC West Division. The Broncos fall to 3-9 in the conference and 6-19 overall. EMU’s all-time leading scorer Tavelyn James led the Green and White in her 16th 20-plus point performance of the year. She hit 13-of-24 attempts (54.2 percent) to top the Eagles’ scoring column with a 30-point effort. Natachia Watkins hit 9-of-18 (50.0 percent) for 20 points and snagged eight boards in the contest, while Olivia Fouty garnered her seventh double-double of the season thanks to her 13 point, 15 board effort against the Broncos. The Eagles shot 50.0 percent (33-of-66) in the contest, holding its lead throughout the duration of the game. WMU hit 19-of-66 this evening for a 28.8 clip. Poor shooting plagued the Broncos in the opening half, as the home team hit just 20.6 percent (7-of-34) of its shots compared to the Eagles’ 18-of-40 effort (45.0 percent) from the floor. EMU also poured on 13 points off of 13 WMU turnovers and outscored the Broncos in paint, 32-10. The duo of James and Watkins combined for 36 of the Green and White’s 43 first-half points. Both tallied 18 apiece, with James netting 11 points in the final eight minutes of the opening half. EMU hit five of its first 10 shots, surging to a 10-2 lead in the opening minutes of the contest. Watkins helped the Eagles increase its advantage, 14-5, after tallying her 10th point in just six minutes on a baseline jumper off of the glass. WMU’s Julia Henson drilled a long-range triple to pull the Broncos within five at 8:25, but James retaliated with a quick bucket at the other end to preserve the Green and White’s three-possession advantage. Throughout the waning minutes of the first half, an Eagles’ fast-paced offense stymied WMU’s defensive efforts with a 10-4 run to jump out front, 32-19, and eventually closed out the first 20 minutes with a 43-24 lead over its host as they headed into the locker room. EMU continued its offensive charge in the second half, outscoring the Broncos 20-9 in the opening stages of the final 20 minutes. The Broncos deficit was too great to overcome, as the Green and White never let up its lead throughout the contest. EMU outscored the home team 40-32 to secure the 83-56 road victory.

DEKALB, Ill. — Thanks to a 77-57 road victory over Northern Illinois University Saturday, Feb. 18, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team preserved its share of the Mid-American Conference West Division and extended its current winning streak to seven straight. The Eagles (19-7, 11-2 MAC) are now tied for the fifth-longest unbeaten stretch in school history. The Green and White also clinched at least a top-four finish in the MAC and a bye through the first two rounds of the 2012 First Energy MAC Tournament. Meanwhile, the Huskies fell to 12-13 overall and 6-7 in the MAC. EMU shot 44.8 percent in the contest behind a 26-of-58 effort from the floor and held the Huskies to a 34.8 clip (16-of-46). The Eagles also forced 20 NIU turnovers and edged the home team on the boards, 36-34. Tavelyn James led all scorers and registered her 17th 20-plus point performance of the season. The senior guard tallied 29 points this afternoon behind a 10-of-23 shooting effort and a perfect 6-of-6 from the free throw line. Natachia Watkins netted 18 points and snagged 12 boards in her fourth double-double of the year, while Paige Redditt rejected two shots in the contest and added 10 points for the Eagles. NIU’s Kim Davis drained 14-of-15 free throw attempts in part of her team high, 26 point effort this afternoon. The opening moments of the first half proved to be a true tug-of-war battle, with the score sitting deadlocked at two separate occasions and the lead changing sides six times in the first twenty minutes. EMU would be the first to strike when Watkins found Redditt on the block for two points, but the Huskies would jump ahead with an Amanda Corral triple at the other end of the floor. From there, both teams battled for its share of the lead. James drained her first bucket of the contest at 17:19 and put the Eagles ahead, 6-5. The Huskies would pull ahead, 16-15, with 11:39 on the clock, but again James helped her squad climb back on top, 18-16, on a step-back jumper from long-range. EMU would maintain its lead and string together an offensive surge that outscored the Huskies 18-8 in the last seven minutes of the half. The Eagles headed into the second half with a 42-28 lead—one the Green and White would never relinquish as EMU outscored its host, 35-29 in the final 20 minutes.

YPSILANTI, Mich. — There was plenty at stake here Tuesday, Feb. 21, in the Convocation Center and the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team was up to the challenge, using a fast-paced offense and a smothering defense to record a 54-33 win over the University of Toledo Rockets in a battle for sole possession of first place in the Mid-American Conference West Division. The Eagles and Rockets entered the game with identical 11-2 MAC marks and the host team forced a whopping 28 turnovers with 16 steals to get the offense rolling in the 21-point win to stand alone at the top of the West Division. The Rockets season-low point total was also the fewest ever scored against Eastern by UT, and it marked the lowest output for Toledo since a 28 point showing at Marquette, Nov. 24, 2004. Eastern, now 20-7 overall and 12-2 in the MAC, was once again led by senior guard Tavelyn James who scored 20 with senior forward Paige Redditt adding 11 points and nine rebounds. Sophomore forward Natachia Watkins added 10 points. The Eagles have now won 20 games in six out of the last nine seasons. Prior to 2003-04, EMU had never won more than 18 games in a single season. Toledo, now 18-8 overall and 11-3 in the MAC, was paced by Yolanda Richardson with 18 points and nine rebounds. Eastern shot 38.7 percent from the field, making 24-of-62 attempts and held a big 39-27 edge on the boards. Toledo, meanwhile, was shooting 35.1 percent, making just 13-of-37 field-goal attempts. Both teams struggled in the early going, and after Toledo scored the first bucket, the Eagles ran off six unanswered points to take a 6-2 lead at the 16:27 mark. Toledo would come back to tie it at 6-all before Eastern would answer with eight straight points to built a 14-6 lead with 7:32 left. The Rockets would keep the deficit at four over the next three minutes, but Eastern would gradually build its lead to 24-16 on a layup by Redditt with two minutes remaining. James would close out the half with a layup to give Eastern’s its biggest lead of the half at 10, 28-18. Redditt would lead all first-half scorers with 11 while Yolanda Richardson scored 10 for the Rockets. The teams were pretty equal in first-half shooting with Eastern making 13of-32 field goals for 40.6 percent while the Rockets shot 38.9 percent, making 7-of-18. Eastern held an 18-12 edge on the boards in the first 20 minutes. Toledo opened the second half with a quick four points, but James settled the Eagles down with a breakaway layup at the 15:34 mark to boost EMU’s lead back to eight, 30-22. The EMU defense would help the offense with several key steals to help the home squad build a 15-point lead, 44-29, with 10:46 left and the Green and White would keep building that advantage all the way to the final buzzer.

Eastern shot 41.7 percent for the game, making 30-of-72 field-goal attempts while holding Ball State to just 23.2 percent for the game, on 13-of-56 shooting. Eastern held a slim, 49-47, rebound edge and the defense turned the Cardinals over 23 times to go along with 26 steals. The Eagles used their usual fast-paced offense to race to an 8-2 lead in the game’s first three minutes, with four of those points coming off fast-break opportunities for James and Fouty. The home team kept the offense rolling, increasing the lead to 18-5 at the 12:20 mark of the first half and the Green and White would lead by as much as 33, 47-14, at intermission. James blistered the nets for 22 points in the first half while Fouty added 11. Watkins scored eight with eight boards. The Eagles finished the first 20 minutes shooting 51.3 percent, making 20-of-39 field goals while the defense held the Cardinals to just 13.3 percent from the field, making just 4-of-30 attempts. Eastern also turned over BSU 12 times in the first half. The pace of the second half slowed considerably, but the Eagles managed to keep the lead in the 20s most of the way, taking a 24-point edge, 60-33, with 8:41 left and eventually cruising to the 74-43 victory.

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Senior Tavelyn James poured in a game-high 22 points but it was not enough for the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball in its bid to clinch at least a share of the Mid-American Conference regular-season championship. In-state rival Central Michigan University was able to pull off the 61-46 upset Tuesday, Feb. 28, in McGuirk Arena to snap the Eagles’ nine-game winning streak. Bowling Green State University, which defeated Kent State University, 91-48, captured the outright title and the No. 1 overall seed in the upcoming tournament. EMU (21-8, 13-3 MAC) still holds onto a share of the MAC West Division championship, as the University of Toledo notched a 70-65 win at Ball State University to earn its portion of the title. Due to the postseason format change, EMU will not play another game for the next 10 days, the longest in-season break of the year. The Eagles will now take the No. 2 seed into the MAC Tournament in Cleveland, Ohio, which starts at campus sites on Saturday, March 3. EMU has a bye until the semifinal round and will play the winner of No. 3 seed Toledo versus a yet to be determined opponent Friday, March 9, at approximately 2:30 p.m. in Quicken Loans Arena. James posted her 107th career double-digit scoring contest and finished with at least 20 points for the 53rd time in her career. Paige Redditt added six points with eight rebounds and Amber Bogard contributed a career-best six points with four rebounds. Jessica Green lead all Chippewa (16-14, 8-8 MAC) players with 12 points. Taylor Johnson notched 10 points followed by 10 points from Crystal Bradford. Eastern Michigan shot 32.7 percent (16-of-49) for the game to go along with 28.6 percent (4-of-14) from the free throw line. Meanwhile, Central Michigan managed a 40.6 percent (26-of-64) clip. The Chips also controlled the glass (38 to 34) and forced 27 Eagle turnovers that led to 30 points. Jessica Green got the Chips off the a quick 5-0 cushion with less than a minute played. The CMU margin would grow to 12, 16-4, as the Eagles turned the ball over seven times while making just two of their first six shots in the opening five minutes. After a five minute field goal drought, Natachia Watkins finally knocked down a jumper with 13:21 showing to pull EMU within eight at 16-8. EMU continued to score to make it a five point contest, as CMU was experiancing some offensive woes with a nearly six minute scoring hiatus. Then with 4:00 to play, James laid one off the glass on the fastbreak run-out to slice it to 26-22 and force the quick CMU timeout. The EMU run continued as James knocked down a pair of free throw tosses to give EMU its first lead of the contest, 29-28, with 49 seconds remaining. Bogard then kissed one off the glass to give EMU a 31-30 edge as the teams headed to the break. EMU shot 43.5 percent (10-of-23) for the half and turned the ball over 16 times, compared to seven giveaways for CMU and a 32.5 (13-of-40) shooting clip. The teams exchanged scores following the intermission with neither side able to put any distance between the other. James connected on her fourth three-pointer of the contest to knot the score at 40-all with 13:50 showing on the second half clock, but CMU found a score of its own to re-take the lead. The scoring would slow considerably but three consecutive buckets by Bradford pushed the advantage back to four, 48-44, as the clock headed under nine minutes to play. A Bradford assist setup a laser three point field goal shot by Jordan LaDuke to push it to 51-44 in favor of CMU. Another long-range bomb by Johnson expanded the deficit to 10 points and forced EMU to burn a timeout to regroup. With turnovers mounting and EMU needing a late rally, the Eagles were unable to match the Chippewas offensive fire-power in the 15-point setback.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Clutch second-half performances from Tavelyn James, Natachia Watkins and Paige Redditt propelled the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team into the finals against Central Michigan University at 1 p.m. in the 2012 Mid-American Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament after a thrilling 59-57 victory over the University of Toledo in the semifinal round Friday afternoon, March 9. Toledo led for the first 39 minutes of the game, but the Eagles roared back to take their first lead with 1:09 remaining in the contest. Toledo led by as many as 10 points, 51-41, with 7:45 to play, but the Eagles finished the contest on a torrid pace, ending the game on an 18-6 run. Redditt notched the game-winning layup and added a free throw with less than 30 seconds left to give her 11 for the game. The Rockets mounted a frenzied attack in the final minute, but were unable to force overtime. The Eagles (22-8; 14-3 MAC) punched their ticket to the MAC Championship game for the second straight season against a Rockets (21-9; 13-4 MAC) team whom they have now beaten on consecutive occasions in the tournament’s semifinals. Eastern Michigan makes its third trip to the finals in school history and improves its mark to 3-4 in semifinal matchups. Watkins shined in the second half with 12 points and tied James as the game’s leading pointsgetter at 19 apiece. Both players were 7-of-21 from the field and Watkins was 5-of-5 from the line, while James was 2-of-2. James was also named the game’s Most Valuable Player. After shooting just 25 percent in the opening period, the Eagles finished the game strong with a 41.1 percent performance in the second half for a total of 22-of-69 (31.9 percent) from the floor. EMU was also 4-of-11 (36.4 percent) from beyond the arc and 11-of-14 (78.6 percent) from the charity stripe. Desyree Thomas led the game in assists with nine and Olivia Fouty collected 10 boards to go along with four points. UT also had a trio of players in double figures as Yolanda Richardson scored 15, Courtney Ingersoll had 14 and Lecretia Smith chimed in with 10. Ingersoll was 4-of-7 from the three-point territory. The Rockets were tough on the glass, outrebounding EMU, 45-30; however, Toledo also committed 27 turnovers to EMU’s six and gave up 26 points off turnovers. The Eagles broke out of the gate on a shooting spree, but missed their opening five shots of the contest until Thomas registered EMU’s first two points with a mid-range jumper. Toledo hit on three of its first four shots to take an 8-2 edge with 17:21 to play in the opening half. EMU cut the deficit to 10-8 at the 12:57 mark on a James jumper, but the Rockets scored on consecutive possessions to make it a 14-8 affair with 11:49 to play. Lackluster shooting and rebounding contributed to the Green and White falling further behind, 17-10, with 7:31 showing on the game clock. To that point, EMU was shooting just 5-of-25 (20 percent) and was out-rebounded, 21-8. James chimed in with her first trey of the afternoon at 5:52 to make it a 20-15 contest in favor of UT. With time winding down in the first half, Watkins pulled the Eagles to within two, 24-22, off a Toledo turnover. The Rockets scored four of the half’s final five points to lead by five, 28-23, at the buzzer. The second half began with both teams trading baskets and EMU still behind by five with 15:31 remaining. Watkins then filled back-to-back free throws to cut Toledo’s lead to 36-33. Ingersoll widened the gap once again with consecutive makes from long range for a 42-35 UT edge. With the Rockets enjoying a double-digit lead, James struck for her second long ball of the afternoon to bring EMU back to within striking distance, 51-44, at the 7:28 mark. Thomas then hit from downtown with 6:22 remaining to make it 53-47. Watkins continued her strong second half with a lay-in at 3:44 to bring EMU back to within four, 55-51; however, as the Rockets had done all game, they quickly made up the basket on their following possession. Then, with just over two minutes remaining, James brought the EMU faithful to their feet with another make from beyond the arc. James then forced a turnover and streaked in toward the basket before being fouled on the shot. The Detroit, Mich. native filled both of the ensuing free throws to make it a one-point contest, 57-56, with 1:56 to play. Redditt put the Eagles in the lead for the first time with a jump shot in the paint at the 1:09 mark, 58-57. Toledo’s Andola Dortch had an open look at the basket on the next possession, but missed a layup. Redditt then sunk a free throw to give EMU a 59-57 lead. With 15 seconds left, Ingersoll collected her own rebound off a missed jumper and launched a three-pointer which also missed the mark. The Rockets could not get a final shot off before the buzzer and the EMU bench cleared onto the court in celebration of its 59-57 victory.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The No. 2 seeded Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team needed just one field goal in the final 8:14 of play to dispatch fifth-seeded Central Michigan University, 72-71, Saturday afternoon, March 10, in the championship game of the 2012 Mid-American Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament at Quicken Loans Arena. Paige Redditt stuffed home the game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds left to earn the Eagles their first MAC title since 2004 and an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. Tavelyn James and Natachia Watkins were named to the MAC All-Tournament Team, and James was selected as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. Eastern Michigan claims its second MAC crown in school history and is now 2-1 in MAC Tournament championship games. The game also marked the first meeting between the Eagles and Chippewas in the EMU’s 19 trips to the annual tournament. The Eagles (23-8) led by as many as 10 points early in the second half, but a resilient Chippewas (20-15) squad fought back to take the lead several times and as late as 14 seconds from the game’s end. Despite a field goal drought in the later portion of the second half, the Green and White kept pace with CMU with a 10-of-12 performance at the free throw line in the final period. Three Eagles finished the game in double-figure scoring. Watkins turned in another brilliant all-around performance with 25 points (11-of-16) to go along with seven boards. James poured in 23 points on 6-of-19 shooting and was a stellar 10-of-12 from the line. The Detroit native leaped past former Ohio Bobcat Caroline Mast (1982-86) for second place on the MAC all-time scoring list. Redditt hit 7-of-11 shots including the game-winning tally for a total of 18 points. Desyree Thomas dished out 10 assists and recorded four steals while playing the entire game at point guard. James, Redditt and Watkins also played the entire 40 minutes Saturday. Eastern and Central Michigan both displayed consistency offensively and were evenly matched for much of the game, as the two teams had even shots attempted (47) and shots made (25) with 7:27 left in the contest. The Green and White finished the game shooting at a 49.1 percent clip (26-of-53), while the Maroon and Gold was 29-of-57 from the floor for a 50.9 shooting percentage. EMU had plenty of chances at the charity stripe, and converted on 19-of-25 attempts (76 percent). Central Michigan received double-digit scoring contributions from four players including Taylor Johnson, who finished the game with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Crystal Bradford (16), Jessica Green (12) and Brandie Baker (10) also notched 10-or-more points for the game. EMU began the afternoon shooting much more efficiently than in the semifinal game against the University of Toledo, converting on six of its opening nine shots for a 66.7 percent clip. After CMU opened the scoring, Watkins filled a layup and drained a mid-range jumper to give EMU an early 4-2 edge. The Eagles took their first lead, 9-7, when Olivia Fouty forced a turnover and fed James who rushed in for an easy layup at 14:31. James put the Eagles ahead by three, 19-16, with a pair of made free throws with 9:00 showing on the clock. Watkins grew the EMU advantage to five, 21-16, when she forced another Chippewas turnover and ran the length of the court for the score. A pair of three-pointers by Bradford and Niki DiGuilio on consecutive possessions quickly erased that lead and gave Central a brief 22-21 lead. Redditt answered with a lay-in under the basket to put EMU back ahead with 6:42 remaining. Eastern Michigan was able to maintain a 40-35 lead heading into the locker room due in large part to the feisty play of Redditt, who forced numerous CMU fouls and accounted for the Green and White’s final five points of the period. The second half could not have begun much better for the Eagles, who scored five points in the first 65 seconds to charge ahead by 10, 45-35. The Chippewas responded with a 7-0 run before James and Watkins ended the streak and made it a 49-42 game with 15:50 remaining. Central Michigan’s offense continued to heat up through the middle portion of the period. At the 12:03 mark, Johnson hit her third trey of the game and Green added a fade-away jumper to cut the Eagles’ lead to just one, 53-52. Skylar Miller then put CMU ahead for the first time since early in the first half, 58-57, until Watkins struck for her 11th make of the contest with 9:07 to play. Meanwhile the Eagles were surviving off of CMU shooting fouls, making seven free throws while being held without a field goal from the 8:14 mark until the game’s final play. Watkins’ free throw with 3:22 to play broke a 67-67 tie. Neither team would score again until Green regained the lead for CMU, 69-68, on a layup at the 1:36 mark. James flipped the lead once again in the Eagles’ favor with a pair of free throws, 70-69, with 35 seconds to play. Bradford hit a contested jumper with 14 ticks left for a 71-70 Chippewas lead. On her way back down court, James was called for traveling which put the ball back in the hands of Central Michigan. The Eagles had no choice but to foul and send Green to the line for a one-and-one. The Chippewas’ guard missed the free shot and Watkins grabbed the rebound and fed the ball off to Redditt. Redditt ran into a wall of Chippewa defenders in the lane, but threw up a shot into the yawning basket with 1.8 seconds remaining. Central Michigan was unable to fire a final shot and the Eagles burst off the bench and onto mid-court in celebration of their first MAC Championship in eight seasons.

GAME 32 • March 17, 2012 • Mackey Arena • West Lafayette, Ind.

Central Michigan

WEST ­LAFAYETTE, Ind. (EMUEagles.com) – The No. 12-seeded Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team fell Saturday, March 17, at Mackey Arena to the No. 5-seeded University of South Carolina, 80-48 in the opening round of the 2012 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. Eastern (23-9) was held to its second lowest point total on the season, 48, while allowing the Gamecocks (24-9) to score 80, which was the most since EMU allowed 84 points to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Nov. 18 Natachia Watkins (South Euclid, Ohio-Brush) recorded a double-double after caroming 12 rebounds and scoring 10 points. Watkins 12 boards tied her for first in Eastern Michigan postseason history, as Paige Reddit (Kansas City, Mo.-Belton) pulled down 12 rebounds against Purdue University on March 17, 2010, in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. Tavelyn James (Detroit, Mich.-Mumford) notched 11 points in her collegiate finale, while Redditt added 14 to score her 1,000th career point. The senior completed her career with 1,001 points As a team, EMU shot at 26.7 clip (16-for-60) and forced 17 South Carolina turnovers. The Gamecocks had three players in double-figures for scoring Markeshia Grant (12) Charenee Stephens (11) and Ashley Bruner (10), while they were 32-of-60 from the field good for 53.3. The Eagles found their biggest lead of the game when they led by six at the 14:10 mark, but the USC offense did not deter as it was able to claw its way back from the 14-8 deficit. Eastern stymied the South Carolina offense early forcing seven turnovers in the first 8:58 of play. The Eagles were able to corral five steals in that time, but were deadlocked with the Gamecocks at 14 points apiece. Stephens pushed the Gamecocks out to an eight point lead when she hit short jumper from the baseline near the eight-minute mark to make the USC’s lead 25-17, but the Eagles returned with a 4-0 run of their own, bringing the score to 25-21, in favor South Carolina. The Gamecocks pushed their lead to double-figures in the final four minutes of the opening frame as they rattled off seven straight points in a 2:31 span to make it 32-21, with 3:21 left in the half. The Eagles scored just one basket in the final 7:01 of the opening frame, while South Carolina closed the opening half on a 14-2 run, leaving EMU with a 39-23 deficit heading into the locker room at the break. Eastern shot at a 32.3 clip (10-for-31) in the first 20 minutes of play, while James led the EMU offense with seven points. A trio of Eagles chipped-in as Olivia Fouty (Toledo, Ohio-Sylvania Northveiw), Redditt and Watkins added four points apiece. The Green and White was able to cause 10 Gamecock turnovers, however the Eagles’ offense turned the ball over on 10 occasions as well. For USC, Bruner went a perfect 4-of-4 from the floor for eight points and Stephens notched seven points on 3-of-6 shooting. Grant and Aleighsa Welch added five points each, while Ieasia Walker and LaKeisha Sutton recorded four points apiece. South Carolina shot 50 percent (15-for-30) from the field in the opening half and 3-for-12 (25 percent) from three-point land. The Gamecocks came out offensive-minded in the second half and jumped out to a 26 point, 54-28 lead with 15:31 left in regulation. USC continued to push through the first 10 minutes of the half extending their lead to 31 points, 63-32 with just under 10 minutes remaining. South Carolina continued to push an up-tempo offense and widened the margin to 36 with two minutes remaining, but the Eagles cut the final margin to 32 as they dropped the opening round game 80-48. Eastern Michigan finished the season with a 23-9 record, while making it to their second NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament in the program’s history. EMU finished 13-3 in MidAmerican Conference play through the 2011-12 season, which was their second best finish in the program’s history.

James Plays in the Pan Am Games Eastern Michigan University guard Tavelyn James (Detroit, Mich.-Mumford) earned a spot on the roster of the USA women's basketball team that participated in the 2011 Pan American Games, Oct. 21-25, in Guadalajara, Mexico. James became not only the first EMU player to compete in the event, but also the first student-athlete from a Mid-American Conference institution to be selected for the team's roster. "I am honored and excited to represent the USA team, EMU and the MAC," said James at the announcement. "I am looking forward to playing with players from across the country and learn new things from the Team USA coaching staff. The experience will provide a new prospective for me and I am looking forward to becoming a better and more well rounded player." "This is such a tremendous honor for Tavelyn and our program, as well as for the MAC," said former EMU Head Women's Basketball Coach AnnMarie Gilbert when the teams were announced. "I have always believed that she would one day be invited to play for USA Basketball. She is, in my opinion, one of the best and fastest small guards in the country. The opportunity for Tavelyn to represent the United States and to compete with and against some of the nation's top players will be a rewarding and unforgettable experience for her. She has worked extremely hard and is so deserving of this special honor." Besides James, the official 12-member USA roster included: Breanna Stewart (Cicero-North Syracuse H.S.-North Syracuse, N.Y.), a high school senior who helped the USA to a gold medal and earned a spot on the five-person all-tournament team at

the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship this past July; alongside NCAA studentathletes Shante Evans (Hofstra); Christine Flores (Missouri); Emilie Johnson (UC Santa Barbara); Marissa Kastanek (North Carolina State); Kevi Luper (Oral Roberts); Valencia McFarland (Mississippi); Katelan Redmon (Gonzaga); Kayla Standish (Gonzaga); April Sykes (Rutgers); and Avery Warley (Liberty). The player selections were made by the USA Basketball Women's National Team Committee. The U.S. squad opened training camp on Oct. 15 with an evening practice in Houston, Texas, followed by two practices, Oct. 16 and 17, and a morning session, Oct. 18. The team then departed for Guadalajara and the 2011 Pan American Games on Oct. 18, and had a practice Oct. 19 and 20 before the competition started on Oct. 21. The 2011 USA Women's Pan American Games Team included seven players who are set to graduate from college in 2012, three members of the junior class who will graduate in 2013, and one college sophomore. Stewart has one year of high school remaining before she is expected to head to the University of Connecticut in the fall of 2012, where she has verbally committed to attend. James started all four games for the USA, averaging 9.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 24.5 minutes per game. Her nine assists led the squad, while her 39 points and 13 made field goals were second most. The Pan American Games are a multisport competition held every four years

(2011, 2015, etc.) in the year preceding the Olympics. Organized by the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO), the Games are open to men and women representing countries from North, South and Central America and the Caribbean. Overall, the USA women in Pan American Games competitions have won seven of 14 gold medals, as well as four silver and two bronze medals, compiling a 72-12 overall record. Former players of note that have competed in the Pan American Games include: Jennifer Azzi (1991); Cynthia Cooper (1987); Anne Donovan (1983 and 1987); Teresa Edwards (1987 and 1991); Pat Head Summitt (1975); Nancy Lieberman (1975 and 1979); Janel McCarville (2003); Katrina McClain (1987 and 1991); Carla McGhee (1995); Ann Meyers (1975 and 1979); Cheryl Miller (1983); Dawn Staley (1995); and Sheryl Swoopes (1995).

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 MidAmerican 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 Golden 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. 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 with which

EMU had split the regular-season series. 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 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 late-game 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

The 2003-04 Championship Run 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 shoot-around 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 time-out 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 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 time-out (3:48 left). Eastern took its only lead of the game with 3:22 left, when Coleman came out of the media time-out 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 for 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 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 is 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.

The 2011-12 Championship Run Unlike the surprising success of the 2003-04 championship season, the championship season of 2011-12 was quite predictable. Entering her fifth season as the head coach at EMU, AnnMarie Gilbert boasted the most talented roster yet with the Eagles, and the team was returning from a season that saw numerous records broken, including most wins in a season (24), en route to a WNIT “Sweet 16” appearance. Naturally, the 2011-12 season began with high expectations, and the Eagles did not disappoint. The season began with a convincing win against Northeastern, and a record setting performance from senior gaurd Tavelyn James. Not only did the Team USA representative pour in a school single-game record 42 points, she also became the first woman in MAC history to score 40 or more points in the first game of the season. Next up for the Green and White was a record setting 110-31 victory over Marygrove in the second game of the season. The 79-point victory set program record for total points scored in a single game. The Eagles third game of the season was a road contest against 23rd ranked WisconsinGreen Bay. The Eagles would score first on a layup from sophomore forward Olivia Fouty, but things seemed to fall apart from there. EMU shot just 25 percent from the field, while Green Bay hit on 46.0 percent of its shots. Perhaps as telling as the gap in shooting percentage was the 23 Eagle turnovers that led to 38 points for the Phoenix. The Green and White got back on track with their next game at Loyola-Chicago. Senior forward Paige Redditt led the way with her fifth career double-double scoring 17 points and bringing down a career-best 18 rebounds to go along with three assists. The effort on the boards was crucial, as EMU out-rebounded Loyola, 46-26, on its way to a 63-55 victory. After a close win against Cornell, the Eagles traveled to Buffalo, N.Y. to play the Golden Griffins of Canisius. Sophomore forward Natachia Watkins led the way this time, scoring 16 second half points to finish with a game-high 21 in the Eagles 65-53 108

win. EMU struggled for the next month, playing around the .500 mark, including three overtime losses against Michigan State, MissouriKansas City and Detroit. Sandwiched between those OT losses, came the teams second consecutive win over Michigan in a rematch from the WNIT last season. The Green and White proved that the win last season was no fluke, winning 77-64. The game also saw another record-breaking performance from James. The 2012 Pomeroy Naismith Award winner scored 38 points on her way to the EMU all-time career scoring record. The first conference game of the season was a road trip to Ball State. The Eagles struggled offensively, shooting just 29.0 percent from the field as they fell to an 0-1 record in MAC play, dropping the game by a score of 54-51. Just when it seemed as though the EMU women may be in line for a disappointing season, the team caught fire. It all began with a matchup, Jan. 8, against the Huskies of Northern Illinois. The team was led by a 17 point, eight rebound effort from Redditt, who also blocked two shots and moved into second place on the EMU career blocked shots list. Despite the turnover-plagued first half, the game was never in doubt as the Eagles won 64-52. The win restored the team’s confidence and the women of Eastern Michigan went on to win 14 of the next 16 games to finish out the regular season, including a nine-game win streak which covered Jan. 25 to Feb. 25. The most impressive win throughout the streak came, Jan. 28, at the Convocation Center against the Akron Zips. The Eagles dominated their opponent from start to finish on their way to a 91-46 victory. The EMU offense was explosive as usual, shooting nearly 45 percent from the field, while the defense held the Zips to 24.5 percent shooting (13 of 53). The next blowout victory of the season came on Feb. 11 in the Convocation Center against Kent State. James had another record-setting day, tying the MAC record for three-pointers made in a single game with 10. James finished with 40 points, nearly outscoring the Golden Flashes on her own. The Eagles cruised to an 83-47 demolition of KSU.

Eastern Michigan University Women’s Basketball 2004 and 2012 Mid-American Conference Tournament Champion • 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2012 Mid-American Conference West Division Champions


The 2011-12 Championship Run Next up for the Eagles was in-state rival Western Michigan University at University Arena in Kalamazoo, Mich. James again led the way with 30 points. EMU never trailed, playing smothering defense in holding the Broncos to a 28.8 shooting percentage. Eastern led 43-24 at halftime, and things did not change in the second half as EMU proved far too much for the Broncos cruising to an 83-56 victory. Three days later, the Eagles trekked to DeKalb, Ill. for a rematch against Northern Illinois. The beginning of the game was a true battle with six lead changes in the first half. With seven minutes left in the opening twenty, EMU found a rhythm and closed the half with an 18-8 run. The Eagles expanded their lead in the second half and won the game by a score of 77-57, their third consecutive win of 20 points or more. James led all scorers with 29 points, her 17th game of the season with at least 20 points. Watkins posted a double-double, scoring 18 with 12 rebounds. The Eagles came home next for a crucial matchup against the Toledo Rockets. Both teams entered the game tied for first place in the MAC West division, and a head-to-head match so late in the season would go a long way in deciding the division champion. The Eagles would post a 54-33 win over the Rockets to take a sole lead of the MAC West division. James led the Eagles with 20 points, while Watkins and Redditt each had double-figure scoring affairs. The last game of the win streak came at home against Ball State, Feb. 25. James again led all scorers with 23 points, and sophomore forward Fouty added 17 points and nine rebounds. The game guaranteed EMU at least a share of the MAC West Division title and avenged a 54-51 loss at Ball State earlier in the year. The second meeting between the two teams was not nearly as competitive, as the Eagles notched their fourth blowout victory in the last five games with a 74-43 win. The team was good enough during the regular season to secure the number two seed in the 2012 MidAmerican Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament. Earning the two-seed offered the Eagles an automatic bye to the semifinals of the tournament where Eastern faced its West Division co-champion Toledo. EMU trailed by a score of 51-41 with just 7:45 remaining in the game when things began to click. The Green and White finished the game on an 18-6 run to secure the team’s third win over Toledo on the season, 59-57. The win also secured the team’s second consecutive trip to the MAC Tournament Cham-

pionship Game. James again paced the team in scoring with 19. The senior was joined by sophomore Watkins, who added 19 of her own, 12 of which came in the second half. Next up would be a rematch against in-state rival Central Michigan with a trip to the NCAA Tournament on the line. In a close game, the Eagles needed just one field goal in the final 8:14 of play to dispatch fifthseeded Central Michigan University, 72-71, Saturday afternoon, March 10, in the championship game of the 2012 MidAmerican Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament at Quicken Loans Arena. Redditt stuffed home the gamewinning layup with 1.8 seconds left to earn the Eagles their first MAC title since 2004 and an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. Sophomore guard Desyree Thomas recorded 10 assists and four steals as the Eagles secured their second MAC Tournament Championship. James and Watkins were named to the MAC All-Tournament team and James also earned tournament MVP honors. The Eagles season ended a week later in West Lafayette, Ind. at the hands of the No. 5-seeded South Carolina Gamecocks. South Carolina played smothering defense, holding EMU to just 48 points, paced by Redditt with 14 points and 12 rebounds. The postseason game gave Redditt the opportunity to reach 1,000 career points, finishing with her final year with 1,001. EMU finished the season with a record of 23-9, one win away from tying the program record and earning the team’s second ever trip to the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. James earned MAC Player of the Year, All-MAC First Team, MAC Player of the Week honors six times, and WBCA and Associated Press AllAmerican Honorable Mention honors. Redditt and Watkins each earned All-MAC Third Team honors, while Watkins also was named to the Academic All-MAC team. The Eagles won eight games by 20 points or more, and five games by 30 points or more in one of the greatest seasons in EMU Women’s Basketball history.

Laurie Byrd, who is the program's all-time leading scorer with 1,899 career points, became the first EMU women's basketball player to have her jersey hung in the Convocation Center rafters. She joins EMU men's basketball greats George Gervin, Grant Long, Kennedy McIntosh and Earl Boykins as the only other players to have the honor bestowed upon them. A prolific scorer while at EMU, Byrd has remained the program's all-time leading scorer for 29 seasons. She is the only player in the program's history to lead her team in scoring and assists in each season in which she competed. Additionally, Byrd still holds EMU career records for scoring average (19.2 ppg), field goals made (854) and field goals attempted (1,788). Currently, an assistant coach for the WNBA's Washington Mystics, Byrd previously served as an assistant coach with the Houston Comets in 2008. In the 2007 season, she was the Comets' director of player personnel. Prior to heading to Houston, Byrd served as an assistant coach for three seasons (2003-2005) with the Detroit Shock, which included the 2003 WNBA Championship. She first entered the coaching ranks at the University of Detroit Mercy as an assistant for three seasons (1999-2002). Byrd had an extensive professional playing career in the American Basketball League and the Women's Basketball Association. She played on the San Jose Lasers and the Atlanta Glory with the ABL and played on the Kentucky Marauders and the Chicago Spirits with the WBL. Byrd also spent time playing overseas. She played seven seasons on numerous basketball clubs in Sweden, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. The Flint, Mich. native has received many awards and honors during her career, including being inducted into the E-Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993 and the AAU Hall of Fame in 1993. In 2003, she was the Think Detroit Honorary Double Goal Coach of the Year.
