2010-11 Penn State Lady Lion Basketball Yearbook

YOUTH WILL PREVAIL FOR 2010-11 LADY LIONS Youth will be the name of the game for the Lady Lions this season with eight freshmen and sophomores on the roster. With the return of All-Big Ten selection Alex Bentley, senior guard/forward Julia Trogele and sophomore center Nikki Greene and the addition of a second-straight Top 25 recruiting class that includes a pair of high school All-Americans, the Lady Lions have their sights set on returning to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2005-06. “In a lot of ways, we are going to be a completely different team then we have been the first three years of our run here with the graduation of Tyra Grant,” head coach Coquese Washington said. “She has always been the go-to player, the big gun and now we won’t have that one standout player. I really think that we are going to be a team where we are going to have a lot of weapons. That will make us a more balanced team and a team that is harder to defend and harder to prepare for because we are going to be so much more balanced and deeper, if we can stay healthy.” Bentley is coming off of a rookie campaign that saw her earn All-Big Ten third team honors and a unanimous selection to the Big Ten All-Freshman team. The sophomore point guard, who was a Full Court Press Freshman All-American, finished in the Top 15 in the Big Ten in assists (4th; 4.03), field goal percentage (10th; .445), assist-to-turnover ratio (7th; 1.47) and steals (15th; 1.6). Bentley was also second on the team in scoring at an 11.8 per game clip, which placed her sixth on Penn State’s freshman season scoring chart (365 pts.). She accounted for 21 double-digit scoring games, including three games with 20 or more tallies. “This is going to be a big year for Alex,” Washington said. “Alex is the engine that drives this team. She loves the fast-paced tempo that we like to play. She can do it all from the point guard position and her will to win and competitive fire are second to none, which is what makes her a truly special player. She is one of the best point guards in our conference and we are looking for her to lead us to the postseason.” Also returning to join Bentley on the perimeter are juniors Zhaque Gray and Renee Womack, as well as sophomore Gizelle Studevent. Gray had a career year in her sophomore campaign with personal bests of 150 points, 50 rebounds, 25 assists and a .760 free throw percentage. The junior sharpshooter, who made nine starts a year ago, is Penn State’s fourth-best returning scorer with a 5.0 scoring average from a year ago. Gray also drained 23 shots from beyond the arc, which was second on the team. “Zha Zha returned from Chicago looking fit and in shape, probably the best conditioned that she has looked every summer that she has come back,” Washington said. “Zha Zha can really put points on the board. She can knock down the outside shot, she’s a slasher, and she’s got good speed in the open court.” Womack was on pace for the best season of her young career before going down with an ACL injury in early January. The sophomore averaged 2.8 points and 3.1 rebounds per game before missing the final 17 contests. Womack’s absence was felt on the defensive end where she had eight blocks, including a career-high three rejections against Iowa, and nine steals in 13 games. “We missed Renee last year when she went down with the knee injury,” Washington said. “She just brings so much athleticism to our guards and she is our defensive stopper. Her rehab has gone great; she will be back fullgo for this season. I am looking forward to getting that athleticism and defensive prowess back in our backcourt.”

Studevent improved steadily during the 2009-10 campaign and earned more playing time as the year went on. The sophomore guard capped the year with six points and two rebounds in the WNIT game against Hofstra. Studevent tallied 40 points, 15 rebounds and five steals in 25 appearances as a freshman. “Gizelle is going to give us some depth at the guard spot,” Washington said. “She can be a solid defender for us because of her quickness and athleticism. She is a natural scorer, meaning that she finds ways to get baskets when she is in the game, even for short periods of time.” Always a match-up problem for opponents, Trogele will once again split time between the wing and the post. Trogele continued to be an influence on the boards, leading the team in rebounding for the second consecutive season with a 6.2 average, which was 11th in the Big Ten. The senior guard/forward was also solid at the free throw line where she finished fifth in the conference with an .827 mark. Trogele dished out a career-best 64 assists a year ago to go along with 32 steals and nine blocks. She also stretched the defense last season by knocking down 12 three-pointers. “Julia is a tremendous leader for us, she is a senior captain and she has really taken her leadership to a very high level,” Washington said. “When you talk about on the court, she is really a tough match-up because she has great size and can play inside or out. She can handle the ball, she can shoot the three and she is an absolutely tremendous rebounder. With the confidence that she has with being healthy and the leadership that she has displayed so far, I am just expecting her to go out and have a fantastic senior year.” In the post, Greene and fellow sophomore Marisa Wolfe return, while redshirt sophomore Mia Nickson will see the court for the first time in a Penn State uniform after sitting out the 2009-10 season due to NCAA transfer rules. With 55 blocks in her rookie season, Greene gives the Lady Lions a shotblocking threat in the middle. The sophomore center finished second on Penn State’s freshman rejections list and ninth on the Lady Lions’ singleseason blocks chart. Greene finished second on the team and 12th in the Big Ten in rebounding (6.2) and was third on the squad in scoring (7.0). She stands fourth on PSU’s freshman rebounding list with 192 boards a year ago. Greene garnered Dec. 14 Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors after tallying 12 second-half points, including five free throws in the final 1:04, and seven rebounds to lead the Lady Lions over nationally-ranked Pitt. “Nikki had a fantastic summer,” Washington said. “Her confidence is at whole new level. She is starting to feel comfortable in the college environment and is getting used to the speed of the game and the physical play in the post. She is the only player that started every game last year as a freshman and that experience really helped her over the course of the season. She was one person that continued to get better and better as the season wore on. I am looking for her to continue that trajectory of improvement this year.”

EIGHT UNDERCLASSMEN LOOK TO LEAD LIONS TO NCAAS Sophomore Alex Bentley

Wolfe came on strong in Big Ten play, scoring 52 of her 81 points against conference competition. She finished 15th on Penn State’s freshmen field goal percentage chart with a .532 effort from the floor. Wolfe was the Feb. 22 Big Ten Freshman of the Week after scoring a career-high 13 points with six rebounds in an overtime win against Michigan. “Marisa is a high-energy player,” Washington said. “She is the kind of kid that is going to get in there and make things happen, just because she is working hard and getting in the mix. She is somebody who can stretch the defense with her outside shooting, but she can also play physical with her back to the basket down low. Her versatility is something that we are going to rely on.” After sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules, Nickson will take the floor for Penn State. She was awarded the team’s Tom Caldwell “Unsung Hero” Award last season and will be a team co-captain with Julia Trogele this year. At Boston College, Nickson averaged 1.6 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. “Mia is the junkyard dog,” Washington said. “She is going to mix it up and will give us a presence under the backboard with her physical play. She is a tremendous rebounder, she has a knack for scoring and she is a great defender. She is going to give us a presence underneath and will be a great compliment to Nikki Greene.” Washington and her staff assembled a second consecutive Top 25 recruiting class that includes McDonald’s High School All-American Maggie Lucas, WBCA High School All-American Ariel Edwards and All-State performer Talia East. All three are expected to make an immediate impact for the Lady Lions this season. 7

“I have high expectations for our freshmen,” Washington said. “When you look at our numbers, with a roster of 11, we are expecting the freshmen to play and to contribute. I expect them to come in and be competitive and to push the upperclassmen. I expect them to bring their will to win and their desire to be champions. I expect them to bring that attitude everyday. If they do that, they will definitely help us get better and help the program continue to improve as we have done every year.“

intelligence, her work ethic and her versatility are going to help her have a big impact for us this year.”

Lucas took home several high school All-America accolades last season, including becoming just the second McDonald’s High School AllAmerican in program history. She was also selected to the Parade Magazine All-America fourth team, the ESPN RISE All-America second team and the MaxPreps All-America fourth team. Lucas will be a deep threat for the Lions as she won the McDonald’s three-point contest at the High School All-America Game. She led Germantown Academy to a second-straight Independent Schools State title. She finished her high school career with 2,197 points, which is the second highest total in school history (boys or girls).

“Talia is such a fun person to coach,” Washington said. “Her energy and her attitude are so positive. You can’t be down when you are around Talia, she is going to find a way to make you smile or laugh. Hopefully we will have her for conference play with her recovering from an ACL injury. Once she returns to the court, she will give us another big body in the post and will give us a presence down low on the defensive end and on the backboard.”

Freshman Maggie Lucas

“Maggie has made a huge impact in the short time that she has been on this campus,” Washington said. “Number one has been her work ethic. She is in the gym and has a workout regimen that is off the charts. She is a tremendous shooter and will definitely stretch the defense, which will give our post players and our slashers more room to operate. She is another great competitor and has a strong will to win.” Edwards led Christ the King to a 26-5 record and the New York State Federation Class AA championship. The rookie forward averaged a double-double her senior season en route to WBCA High School All-America accolades. Edwards also garnered first team All-State honors her senior season.

East averaged a double-double with 13.4 points and 10.0 rebounds per game for Friends Central School last season. She was vital to helping FCS to its first Friends Schools League championship in 24 years. The two-time All-State choice was just the seventh player in school history to reach 1,000 points.

The Lady Lions will once again face a challenging schedule with 14 schools that reached the postseason, including seven NCAA Tournament teams, on the slate this year. Penn State will face a strong non-conference schedule to prepare for the tough Big Ten season. The non-conference slate includes games against the ACC’s Boston College, the Big 12’s Texas Tech and the SEC’s South Carolina, as well as a solid field that includes Hartford, Wisconsin-Green Bay and Utah at the Caribbean Challenge in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. “Once again, the Big Ten is one of the most competitive, if not the most competitive, conferences from top to bottom in the country,” Washington said. “Our non-conference schedule is pretty challenging and is definitely preparing us to be competitive in the Big Ten. We play some tough road games. We play some tough competition in the Caribbean Challenge in Mexico. We’ve got the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge and we play an SEC school. With us having such a young team with eight freshmen and sophomores, some of these tests that we are going to have on the road, in particular, in non-conference play will give us the experience we need to go on the road in the Big Ten.”

“Ariel is a tremendous athlete,” Washington said. “Again, another versatile player with her length, her quickness and her athleticism, she is going to have a big impact for us defensively. She will be able to get deflections, steals and will be able to get us going in transition. Her basketball 2010-11 Penn State Lady Lion Basketball Yearbook

The name of my reality show would be “True Life: I made it through Brad Pantall’s workouts.” My favorite Subway sandwich is an Italian BMT. When I was little, I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up.

Coquese Washington, who helped lead Notre Dame to the 2001 NCAA Championship, was introduced as the fifth head coach of the Penn State women’s basketball program on April 23, 2007. Washington is the first female AfricanAmerican head coach in Penn State history. “I'm extremely proud and grateful to continue representing Penn State University and this wonderful basketball program. The support we have received from the University community and our administration, especially President Spanier and Tim Curley continually reminds me of why I consider my role as head coach at Penn State to be a truly wonderful position.” The third season under Washington saw the Lady Lions return to the postseason for the first time since 2004-05 with a WNIT berth. The Lions earned their most overall wins (17) and conference wins (8) since the 2004-05 campaign en route to a sixth-place finish in the Big Ten. Penn State picked up a pair of wins over ranked opponents in #15/15 Pittsburgh and #20/23 Michigan State. Washington led Tyra Grant to back-to-back first team AllBig Ten honors and Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America accolades in her senior season. Grant capped off her career by being selected by the Phoenix Mercury in the second round of the WNBA Draft. The four-time allconference pick left Penn State third in school history in scoring with 2,044 points. Washington also guided freshman Alex Bentley to third team All-Big Ten honors, as well as a unanimous selection to the Big Ten AllFreshman team. Once again, Washington and the Lady Lions garnered one of the top recruiting classes in the country, finishing 22nd on the ESPN/HoopGurlz recruiting chart. The class includes just the second McDonald’s High School All-American in Penn State history in Maggie Lucas, WBCA High School All-American Ariel Edwards and AllState selection Talia East. In Washington’s second season, the Lady Lions moved up three positions in the Big Ten standings, finishing in a tie for seventh place.

Additionally, Brianne O’Rourke closed out her career with All-Big Ten honorable mention accolades and left Penn State as one of just six players in school history with 1,000 points and 500 assists. Washington’s second recruiting class was rated in the Top 20 by many publications, peaking at No. 10 by “Blue Star Basketball.” The four-player class featured a pair of AllAmericans in Nikki Greene and Alex Bentley, as well as All-State performers Gizelle Studevent and Marisa Wolfe. In May 2009, Washington’s protégés Grant and Greene were invited to the USA Basketball Trials for the World University Game and U19 World Championships, respectively. In her first season at the helm, Washington and the Lady Lions picked up two nationallytelevised wins on ESPN and CBS, downed two nationally-ranked foes and took home the 25th regular-season tournament crown in program history.

The Coquese Washington era started in style as the Lady Lions won their first three games of the season, including a win over #20/21 Pittsburgh, to claim the WBCA Classic title. Just three weeks later, Washington guided the Lady Lions to their first ever win over perennial contender and 10th-ranked Duke in the inaugural Big Ten/ACC Challenge, a game that was televised on ESPN2. The Lady Lions also appeared on CBS, earning a road win over Michigan State to kickoff the New Year. Additionally, Washington was tabbed the “Rising Star” in the coaching ranks in a vote of the members of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) during the 2007-08 campaign. Washington was also instrumental in helping Kam Gissendanner sign a free agent contract with the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks. Washington came to Happy Valley after eight seasons as an associate head coach and assistant coach under Muffet McGraw at Notre Dame, her alma mater.

One of the top recruiters in the country, Washington was instrumental in helping the Irish to secure eight consecutive Top 25 recruiting classes, according to “Blue Star Index,” a feat only accomplished by two other programs in the country (Connecticut and Tennessee). In addition to recruiting, Washington served as the academic liaison and was also responsible for developing Notre Dame’s nonconference schedule and assisting with scouting reports and practice planning. “Recruiting is the life-blood of our profession. You have to continue to get good players in here and get out on the recruiting trail and find great student-athletes. That is what this program has done in the past, and we will continue to find student-athletes who understand how special it is to be a Lady Lion and what a unique and wonderful opportunity it is to be educated at Penn State. We are looking for players who want to take the challenge on of restoring this program to national prominence.” During her tenure at Notre Dame, Washington coached five All-Americans and had seven players that were drafted into the WNBA. Washington, in her role as the guards coach, was directly responsible for developing three All-Americans and two Frances Naismith Pomeroy Award winners for the nation’s top player 5-8 or under, including Niele Ivey and Megan Duffy. Washington also directed Alicia Ratay, who is the NCAA’s career three-point field goal percentage leader. Washington not only had a reputation at Notre Dame for recruiting and developing top talent, but her scouting reports and game day preparation were second to none. While with the Fighting Irish, Washington was responsible for the scouting reports in wins over nationally-ranked opponents such as USC, Ohio State, Boston College, Miami (Fla.) and Virginia Tech. She was also responsible for a successful scouting report in the 2001 NCAA Championship game against Purdue in which the Irish downed the Boilermakers, 68-66, to win their first-ever title. Washington was a four-year starting point guard for Notre Dame under McGraw and was the team captain on Notre Dame’s first-ever NCAA Tournament team.

NITTANY LION MASCOT Penn State’s athletic symbol, chosen by the student body in 1906, is the mountain lion which once roamed central Pennsylvania. H.D. “Joe” Mason, a member of the Class of 1907, conducted a one-man campaign to choose a school mascot after seeing the Princeton tiger on a trip with the Penn State baseball team to that New Jersey campus. A student publication sponsored the campaign to select a mascot and Penn State is believed to be the first college to adopt the lion as a mascot. Since Penn State is located in the Nittany Valley at the foot of Mount Nittany, the lion was designated as a Nittany Lion. In regional folklore, Nittany (or Nita-Nee) was a valorous Indian princess in whose honor the Great Spirit caused Mount Nittany to be formed. A later namesake, daughter of chief O-Ko-Cho, who lived near the mouth of Penn’s Creek, fell in love with Malachi Boyer, a trader. The tearful maiden and her lost lover became legend and her name was given to the stately mountain.

NITTANY LION SHRINE Penn State’s Nittany Lion shrine was dedicated on Oct. 24, 1942, during Homecoming Weekend. Animal sculptor Heinz Warneke and stonecutter Joseph Garatti molded a 13-ton block of Indiana limestone into the most recognizable symbol of Penn State. The shrine was chosen from six models submitted by Warneke. The shrine is a gift of the Class of 1940 and rests in a natural setting of trees near Recreation Building. The site was chosen because of its accessibility, the surrounding trees and the fact that the sculpture would not be dwarfed by nearby buildings.

BLUE & WHITE Penn State’s student-athletes are instantly identified by their blue and white uniforms — but those weren’t the original school colors. A three-member committee representing the sophomore, junior and senior classes was appointed in October of 1887 to develop color options from which the student body would select the school’s official colors. Dark pink and black was the unanimous choice of the student body after considering the color combinations presented by the committee. Soon, many students and members of the baseball team were sporting pink and black striped blazers and caps. However, problems arose when the pink faded to white after several weeks of exposure to the sun. The students then opted for blue, rather than black, and white. The official announcement of the new choice was made on March 18, 1890.

PENN STATE ALMA MATER

For the glory of Old State For her founders strong and great, For the future that we wait, Raise the song, raise the song.

When we stood at childhood’s gate, Shapeless in the hands of fate, Thou didst mold us, dear old State Dear old State, dear old State.

Sing our love and loyalty Sing our hopes that bright and free Rest, O Mother dear, with thee, All with thee, all with thee.

May no act of ours bring shame To one heart that loves thy name, May our lives but swell thy fame, Dear old State, dear old State.

2009-10 Season in Review GRANT PICKED IN WNBA DRAFT: Senior guard Tyra Grant was selected by the defending WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury in the second round of the 2010 WNBA Draft. Grant, the 24th overall pick, is the 12th Lady Lion to be selected in the WNBA Draft and is the first since Amanda Brown was picked with the 38th selection in the 2007 draft. LIONS BACK IN THE POSTSEASON: The Lady Lions returned to the postseason after a five-year absence to make their 23rd overall appearance (21 NCAA; 2 WNIT). Penn State is 30-22 all-time in postseason games (NCAA or WNIT). It was the second all-time WNIT berth for Penn State. In their only other WNIT appearance, the Lady Lions won the inaugural WNIT in 1998 with wins over Villanova, St. Joseph’s, Indiana and Baylor. GRANT JOINS 2,000-POINT CLUB: Senior guard Tyra Grant became the fourth player in school history to reach the 2,000-point plateau with 32 tallies in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal against Iowa on March 5. Grant joins Kelly Mazzante, Susan Robinson and Kahadeejah Herbert in the elite group. Grant is also the 14th player in Big Ten history to accomplish the feat. She finished her career third in school history with 2,044 tallies. GRANT CLAIMS SECOND FIRST TEAM HONOR: For the second consecutive season, senior guard Tyra Grant took home All-Big Ten first team accolades from both the coaches and media. She is the eighth Lady Lion to garner multiple All-Big Ten first team selections, joining Tina Nicholson (1994, 1995, 1996), Angie Potthoff (1995, 1996, 1997), Helen Darling (1999, 2000), Andrea Garner (1999, 2000), Maren Walseth (2000, 2001), Kelly Mazzante (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004) and Tanisha Wright (2003, 2004, 2005). Grant was an All-Big honorable mention choice each of her first two seasons in Happy Valley. BENTLEY EARNS ALL-BIG TEN ACCOLADES: Guard Alex Bentley was rewarded for a stellar rookie campaign with Big Ten postseason honors. Bentley was selected to the All-Big Ten third team by the coaches and was All-Big Ten honorable mention pick by the media. Additionally, she was a unanimous choice for the Big Ten All-Freshman team. Bentley is the ninth Penn State rookie to earn Big Ten AllFreshman team accolades, joining Helen Darling (1997), Lisa Shepherd (1998), Maren Walseth (1998), Kelly Mazzante (2001), Jess Strom (2002), Reicina Russell (2004), Brianne O’Rourke (2006) and Tyra Grant (2007).

GRANT BREAKS FREEBIES RECORDS: Senior Tyra Grant broke Penn State’s singleseason free throws made and free throws attempted records this year. Grant’s 176 free throws made breaks the previous record of 161 set by Susan Robinson during the 1989-90 season. Grant attempted 223 freebies last year, which passed the mark set by Kahadeejah Herbert in 1984-85 (210). TY TALLIES 32 AT BIG TENS: Tyra Grant notched her fourth career 30-point game with 32 points on 11-for-23 shooting in the Big Ten quarterfinal against Iowa on March 5. It was the fourth 30-point performance of Grant’s career, which is tied for third all-time, and her third against the Hawkeyes. GRANT 6TH ON SINGLE-SEASON LIST: Senior guard Tyra Grant climbed in the Top 10 on Penn State’s single-season scoring chart with a pair of solid performances in the Big Ten Tournament. Grant’s 597 points are the sixthhighest single-season total in school history. She also owns the 10th-best mark with 567 points during the 2008-09 campaign. ALEX ON ROOKIE SCORING AND ASSIST LISTS: Freshman Alex Bentley finished her rookie season sixth on Penn State’s freshman season scoring list with 365 points. She also finished fifth on the Lady Lions’ freshman assists list with 125 helpers. NIKKI IN SINGLE-SEASON BLOCKS CHART: Freshman Nikki Greene finished the year ninth on Penn State’s single-season blocks list with 55 rejections. She is also just the second freshman to have more than 50 blocks in a season, joining Reicina Russell (2003-04). Greene is also second on Penn State’s freshman season blocks list. Additionally, she sits in fourth place on Penn State’s freshman season rebounding list with 192 caroms. TY TABBED NAISMITH SEMIFINALIST: Senior guard Tyra Grant was one of 30 mid-season candidates for the 2010 Women’s Naismith Trophy presented by AT&T, which was announced by the Atlanta Tipoff Club. Grant was one of four Big Ten players on the mid-season list, joining Ohio State’s Jantel Lavender and Samantha Prahalis and Illinois’ Jenna Smith. This was the second consecutive season that Grant has been a semifinalist for the Naismith Trophy.

WOLFE IS WILD FOR BIG TEN HONOR: Freshman forward Marisa Wolfe turned in the best performance of her young career against Michigan on Feb. 18 and was honored by the conference office as the Feb. 22 Big Ten Freshman of the Week. The rookie set career highs with 13 points and six rebounds off the bench. Wolfe was 5-for-7 from the field, both of which were personal bests. Her previous career high was 10 points at Northwestern (1/3/10) and five rebounds, which she accumulated on three occasions last year. EXTRA TIME: The Lady Lions played their fourth overtime game of the season in a 71-65 win over Michigan on Feb. 18. It was the third overtime win of the season for the Lady Lions, marking the first time since the 1997-98 campaign that Penn State has won three games in extra time. The Michigan game also marked the first time in school history that the Lady Lions have played four overtime games in a season. The Lady Lions earned a 77-71 win over Indiana on Jan. 10 and the 77-73 victory over Iowa on Dec. 28, but dropped an 80-76 decision against Purdue on Jan. 28. PRESSURING THE BALL: Penn State forced Ohio State into 18 first-half turnovers and 25 for the game in a tough loss to the nationally-ranked Buckeyes on Feb. 7. It is the most turnovers by a Lady Lion opponent since Bucknell had 30 turnovers on Dec. 9, 2008. The Lady Lions also notched a season-high 15 steals on the game, marking the first time since Dec. 21, 2008 against Michigan State that Penn State nabbed 15 thefts. GRANT FINALIST FOR LOWE’S AWARD: Senior Tyra Grant was among the 10 finalists for the women’s basketball Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. She earned second team Lowe’s Senior CLASS All-America honors, becoming the first Lady Lion to do so since Amanda Brown in 200607. The award honors student-athletes who excel on and off the court and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – classroom, character, community and competition. TWO WITH 25+: Freshman guard Alex Bentley and senior guard Tyra Grant scored 27 and 26 points, respectively, in the Jan. 28 overtime loss to Purdue. It was the first time since Jan. 9, 2003 that the Lady Lions have had two players score 25 points or more in a game. In that game, Kelly Mazzante tallied 37 points and Tanisha Wright had 27 in an 86-56 win over Iowa.

WIN MARKS: The Lady Lions’ 17 overall wins and eight conference wins are the most by a Penn State team since the 2004-05 campaign. The 2004-05 squad was 19-11 overall and 13-3 in Big Ten play.

2009-10 Season in Review SWATTING THE BALL: Freshman center Nikki Greene paced the Lady Lions with a career-high seven blocks against Purdue on Jan. 28. The Lions rejected 11 Boilermaker shots, the most blocks by a Penn State team since an 11-swat performance against Ohio State on Jan. 11, 2007. This was the second double-digit block performance of the season for the Lady Lions after accumulating 10 blocks against Indiana on Jan. 10. The last time that Penn State had multiple double figure block games in a season was 2001-02 campaign when the Lady Lions had three double-digit block performances behind the play of Rashana Barnes. LIONS IN THE POLL: The Lady Lions returned to the Associated Press Poll for the first time since 2004-05 with a No. 23 ranking in the Jan. 25 poll. Penn State also received votes in USA Today Coaches Poll for the first time since the 2007-08 season. Coquese Washington becomes the 27th coach in AP poll history to play for a Top 25 team and coach at Top 25, joining former Lady Lion Terry Williams-Flournoy (PSU/Georgetown) and her former boss Muffet McGraw (St. Joseph’s/Notre Dame). BEST START: With a 15-4 record in their first 19 games, the Lady Lions posted their best start since the 2003-04 season when they opened the season with a 21-3 mark. The 2003-04 team, led by Kelly Mazzante, reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament before losing to Connecticut. BIG TEN Ws: Just nine games into the Big Ten Conference season, the Lady Lions surpassed their number of conference wins for all of last season with their seventh victory over Illinois on Jan. 24. The seven Big Ten wins are the most for the Lions since the 2006-07 season when Penn State went 7-9. The win was also the sixth consecutive overall for the Lady Lions, marking the longest winning streak since 2004-05. Nicole Arcidiacono

Bentley guided the Lady Lions to wins over Iowa and No. 23/20 Michigan State. Bentley averaged 14.5 points, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals against the Hawkeyes and Spartans. Bentley was 7-for-13 from the field en route to 15 points, five assist, two steals and a block in the road win at Iowa on Jan. 14. She sparked an 11-0 run that put the Lions in front in Iowa City with a three-pointer in transition and a fastbreak layup. Bentley accounted for 14 points, three assists and a steal in the upset win over #20 Michigan State on Jan. 17. TWO RANKED WINS: The Lady Lions toppled their second ranked opponent of the season with a 68-60 victory over No. 23/20 Michigan State on Jan. 17.

LIONS SURPASS 2009 WIN TOTAL: With their 68-62 win at Iowa on Jan. 14, the Lady Lions surpassed their win total from the entire 2008-09 season as they picked up their 12th victory. The win also marked the first time that the Lions have notched back-to-back Big Ten road wins since the 2004-05 campaign. SWEEPING THE HAWKEYES: The Lady Lions picked up their first victory in Carver-Hawkeye Arena since Jan. 6, 2005 with a 68-62 win over Iowa on Jan. 14. The victory also secured the regular-season sweep over the Hawkeyes for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign.

SHOOTING LIGHTS OUT: The Lady Lions connected on a season-best 56.4% of their shots with a 31-for-55 effort from the field in an 88-68 win over Northwestern on Jan. 3.

Greene had 12 points, seven rebounds, including five on the offensive glass, and a blocked shot in the victory over the nationally-ranked Panthers. It was Penn State’s first win over a ranked opponent since topping No. 11/10 Duke on Dec. 2, 2007. Greene secured the win for the Lady Lions by knocking down 5-of-6 free throw attempts in the final 1:04. 26TH TOURNAMENT TITLE: The Lady Lions earned their 26th regular-season tournament title with victories over Buffalo (86-65) and Holy Cross (52-48) in the Dead River Company Classic.

BIG TEN CONFERENCE The Big Ten Conference is comprised of world-class academic institutions who share a common mission of research, graduate, professional and undergraduate teaching and public service. The conference’s 100-plus years of history, strong tradition of competitive intercollegiate athletic programs, vast and passionate alumni base, and consistent leadership in innovations position the Big Ten and its entire community firmly on the Big Stage. The Big Ten has sustained a comprehensive set of shared practices and policies that enforce the priority of academics and emphasize the values of integrity, fairness and competitiveness in all aspects of its student-athletes’ lives, with the ultimate goal of ensuring that each individual has the opportunity to live a Big Life. STUDENT-ATHLETE OPPORTUNITIES • Big Ten universities provide more than $112 million in direct financial aid to more than 8,700 men and women student-athletes who compete for 25 championships, 12 for men and 13 for women. • Conference institutions sponsor broad-based athletic programs with 275 teams. Other than the Ivy League, the Big Ten has the most broad-based athletic programs in the United States. TOP ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS • Big Ten universities are members of the nation’s only conference whose constituency is entirely composed of institutions that are members of the AAU, a prestigious association of major academic and research institutions in the United States and Canada. • Big Ten universities are also members of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of the Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago. These 12 world-class research institutions have advanced their academic missions, generated unique opportunities for students and faculty and served the common good by sharing their expertise, leveraging campus resources and collaborating on innovative programs. • The Big Ten leads all conferences with the highest number of ranked graduate school programs among the top 25 according to U.S. News and World Report in 2010. The Big Ten ranks first with 24 top-25 programs in the fields of law, medical (research and primary care), business and engineering. • Big Ten student-athletes graduated at 70.6 percent, compared with the average for all Division I student-athletes of 64 percent, based on the most recent federal graduation rate average for 19992002 freshman classes. In addition, the Big Ten’s latest Graduation Success rate is 82 percent, compared to the Division I average of 79 percent. MORE TELEVISION EXPOSURE • The Big Ten’s media agreements with CBS Sports, ABC/ESPN, the Big Ten Network and CBS

College Sports Network provide the conference with its greatest television exposure ever. • In 2006, the Big Ten created the first national conference-owned television network devoted to the athletic and academic programs of a single conference. The Big Ten Network launched on Aug. 30, 2007, and became the first new network in cable or satellite television history to reach 30 million homes in its first 30 days. The Big Ten Network is now available to an estimated 75 million households through agreements with more than 300 cable, satellite and telco affiliates in all 50 states and Canada. The network is available on cable in 19 of the nation’s 20 largest media markets. • Since the current media agreements began in 2007-08, every home football and men’s basketball game has been produced while women’s basketball has received more coverage than any other conference. • The Big Ten’s new media agreements have resulted in the production and distribution of more than 850 events nationally on an annual basis, compared to 300 events in the final year of the previous agreements. NATION’S BEST FANS • Big Ten fans are some of the nation’s most supportive, with more than 8.9 million patrons attending conference home contests during the 2009-10 seasons for football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball alone. • Over the last three decades, the conference has ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 nationally in football, men’s basketball, volleyball and wrestling attendance and among the top three in women’s basketball. • The Big Ten leads all conferences with more than 4.4 million living alumni and over 300,000 undergraduate students attending Big Ten universities. SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS • During the 2009-10 season, the Big Ten claimed six team national championships, including titles for Iowa wrestling, Michigan men’s gymnastics, Ohio State synchronized swimming, Penn State fencing and women’s volleyball and Purdue women’s golf. • The Big Ten leads all conferences with national titles in 13 different NCAA-sponsored championships since 2000-01. Over that time period, the Big Ten has produced championships in cross country, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, volleyball and wrestling. LEADERSHIP IN GENDER EQUITY • Since 1992, the Big Ten has shown a strong commitment to increasing opportunities for women in sports and exposure of women’s athletics by establishing a multi-phased gender equity program. In that time, the Big Ten has created in excess of 2,000 new opportunities for women student-athletes and established 28 new women’s teams, while expanding the number of women’s championships to 13 by adding field hockey, soccer and rowing. In addition, the Big Ten Network will become the first

2010-11 Penn State Lady Lion Basketball Yearbook

national network to commit to event equality during the 2010-11 academic year, with intent to produce and distribute a substantially equal number of men’s and women’s events across all platforms. • As part of the gender equity action plan, the Big Ten was the first conference to voluntarily adopt male/female participation goals for student-athletes in 1992. The Big Ten initiated a five-year plan for conference members to commit to a 60 percent/40 percent male-to-female student-athlete participation ratio. This was achieved as a conference by 1997 and 2000 was the first year that all institutions individually met this goal. During the 2009-10 year, all institutions were in compliance and the conference averaged a 52/48 male-to-female participation ratio. BUILDING THE FUTURE • In 1989, the Big Ten created a community outreach program—SCORE (Success Comes Out of Reading Everyday), which partners the conference with two Chicago elementary schools to improve reading performances. What began with one school, two grade levels and five classrooms has grown in its 21st year to include grades kindergarten through eighth, encompassing all classes and students at Melody School and Louis Armstrong School. • Following the national tragedy on Sept. 11, 2001, the Big Ten, through its intercollegiate athletic department revenues, pledged a $1 million scholarship contribution to assist the families of those affected by the terrorist attacks. The conference’s donation is called the “Big Ten 9-11 Scholarship Fund”, and the $1 million contribution will be drawn from conference reserves which are generated as a result of football and men’s basketball participation in NCAA, bowl and regularseason television opportunities. • The Big Ten has established numerous community programs surrounding the Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, including the Wayne Duke Postgraduate Award Scholarship, the Big Ten Career Fair, the Hoops Day 5K and a partnership with the Pink Ribbon Connection, a local breast cancer organization.

THE BIG TEN NETWORK NETWORK PROFILE Headquartered in Chicago, the Big Ten Network is the first internationally distributed television network dedicated to covering one of America’s premier collegiate conferences.

The fall programming lineup will feature several new shows, highlighted by Big Ten Icons, Big Ten Film Vault and The Next Level. Returning programs will include Behind the Schemes, Big Ten’s Best, Big Ten Breakdown, Big Ten Football & Beyond, Big Ten Tailgate and The Big Ten’s Greatest Games. In addition to live events, the network also airs coaches’ shows and classic games and each campus has the opportunity to produce original, campus programming highlighting various aspects of campus life and the qualities that make each university unique.

With more than 350 live sports events, and virtually all of them in high definition, the Big Ten Network is the ultimate destination for Big Ten fans and alumni across the country. The network is on the air 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Some of the Big Ten Network’s streamed events are also televised on delay as part of the network’s Student U initiative. Big Ten students on each campus produce and announce these events, offering a unique opportunity to gain real-world television experience.

WHERE TO FIND US The network is available up to an estimated 75 million households, and in all 50 states and Canada though agreements with more than 300 cable, satellite and telco affiliates. Customers of DIRECTV and DISH Network, have access to the network regardless of where they live, while Verizon and AT&T continue to roll out their FiOS and U-Verse services across the country. On cable, the network is available in 19 of the nation’s 20 largest media markets, including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Washington DC, Houston and many more. To get the channel number specific to your area and provider, visit http://www.bigtennetwork.com/channelfinder. Cable subscribers inside the eight Big Ten states receive the network on either an expanded basic or digital basic level of service. Outside the eight states, cable operators that carry the network make it available on a variety of packages. BIG TEN NETWORK PROGRAMMING The Big Ten Network is on the air 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. The network annually televises more than 350 live events and streams an additional 300+ events. Each year’s schedule is comprised of approximately 35-40 football games, 105 regular season men’s basketball games, Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament games, 55 women’s basketball games, Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament games, hundreds of additional Olympic sports events and dozens of Big Ten championship events.

WHY THE NETWORK WAS CREATED The Big Ten Network was created to provide the conference with more national exposure for Big Ten sports while enhancing its existing television agreements with its other television partners. The conference wanted to control more fully the advertising environment in which its events were aired (the network accepts no alcohol or gambling advertising), dramatically increase exposure for women’s sports and other NCAA sports that had not previously been widely televised and improve distribution for football and men’s basketball games that were previously available only on a local or regional basis. Considered to be one of the most successful launches in cable television history, the Big Ten Network became the first network in cable or satellite television history to reach 30 million subscribers within its first 30 days on the air. The Big Ten Network is a joint venture between subsidiaries of the Big Ten Conference and Fox Cable Networks. THE BIG TEN NETWORK’S IMPACT The network has provided an additional revenue source at a time of continued decreases in state support. The network has also provided significant and additional exposure for all Big Ten men’s and women’s sports, some of which previously received little or no television exposure. It also helps with recruiting in all sports as the ability for parents to watch their children compete from anywhere across the country is a major selling point.

Every Big Ten Network football game telecast is surrounded by Big Ten Football Saturday, the network’s pre-game, halftime and post-game show hosted by Dave Revsine and analysts Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith. New for the 2010 season, the Big Ten Network will offer two hours of new programming every weeknight. In addition, the highly-anticipated series, Big Ten Icons, will debut on Saturday, Sept. 18, and will be hosted by broadcasting legend Keith Jackson. The 20-episode series will count down the top student-athletes in Big Ten history across all sports based on their collegiate careers. In all, the network will supplement its game coverage with a dozen football-themed shows each week.

LADY LION FUN FACTS

 The Lady Lions are one of 14 teams in NCAA Division I history with 780 wins.  Former head coach Rene Portland ranks in the Top 15 on the NCAA’s alltime wins list (693) and in the Top 20 in career winning percentage (.723).  The Lady Lions have two former WNBA players on their coaching staff: head coach Coquese Washington, assistant coach Maren Walseth.  Suzie McConnell holds the NCAA record for career assists with 1,307.  Kelly Mazzante has nearly half of the 30-point single-game performances in Lady Lion history. Mazzante lays claim to 27 of the 57 30-point games in the Penn State record books.  Suzie McConnell Serio was a 2008 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame inductee.  Kelly Mazzante won two WNBA Championships as a member of the Phoenix Mercury in 2007 and 2009.  Suzie McConnell Serio won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1988 and an Olympic Bronze Medal in 1992.  The Lady Lions were the first team in the country to wear pink uniforms (Feb. 4, 2007) as part of the Pink Zone initiative in the fight against breast cancer.  In 1991, the Lady Lions became the first team from the Northeast to stake claim to the No. 1 ranking in the Associated Press poll.  Susan Robinson is the only Lady Lion to win the Wade Trophy as the best player in nation in 1992.  Suzie McConnell and Helen Darling are Penn State’s Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award winners for the nation’s best player under 5-8.  Adrienne Squire holds the NCAA record for free throw percentage in a season with a 96.4% (80-83) mark during the 2005-06 season.  As part of the “Point Guard U” tradition, four Lady Lions (Brianne O’Rourke, Jess Strom, Helen Darling, Tina Nicholson) have combined to lead the Big Ten in assists nine times since joining the league in 1992-93.

ASSOCIATED PRESS POLL FACTS

Penn State has been ranked in the final Associated Press poll 20 times. Penn State has been ranked in the Top 10 in the final AP poll 11 times. Penn State has been ranked No. 1 in the national polls five times (Jan. 7, March 4, 1991; Jan. 24, 31 and Feb. 7, 1994).

POLL HISTORY

The Associated Press poll was launched by Mel Greenberg of the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1976-77. In 1989-90, the AP weekly coaches’ poll expanded from 20 to 25 teams.

Penn State celebrates first-ever No. 1 ranking.

USA Today poll began selecting its Top 25 teams after the 1986 NCAA Championship game. Prior to the 1994-95 season, the coaches voting panels switched affiliation. The USA Today poll became the coaches’ weekly poll, while the AP poll is now decided by the media.

BRYCE JORDAN CENTER  The 15,261-seat Bryce Jordan Center rocks during the basketball season and throughout the year with concerts and events.  The Lady Lions practice, eat, complete strength and conditioning workouts and play basketball in the BJC. The Basketball Offices, as well as those of the athletics department administration are in the Jordan Center.

 Among the performers who have graced the Jordan Center stage are Akon, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews Band, Aerosmith, Janet Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, John Mayer, Garth Brooks, Metallica, Phish, Elton John, Billy Joel, Usher, Nelly, Bon Jovi, 50 Cent, Cher and Tina Turner.

 The Jordan Center was completed in 1996 at a cost of $55 million.

 In May 1996, former President Bill Clinton delivered the main address at the graduate school commencement.

 The Lady Lions christened their current home court on January 20, 1996 against SEC foe Georgia.

 The Bryce Jordan Center features locker rooms for the men’s and women’s basketball teams, six visiting locker rooms, a press room and an 18,800-square-foot auxiliary gym just steps away from the main floor.

 Penn State lays claim to three undefeated home seasons at the Bryce Jordan Center.  The Lady Lions are consistently ranked in the Top 15 in NCAA Division I in attendance.

 The Bryce Jordan Center is named after University President Emeritus Dr. Bryce Jordan, who led Penn State’s membership into the Big Ten Conference.

 The Lady Lions sold out the Bryce Jordan Center twice during the 2003-04 campaign against Michigan (Feb. 15) and Purdue (Feb. 29).

HOME COURT HISTORY: FROM THE WHITE BUILDING TO THE BJC

The White Building (1965-76)

 The Penn State women’s basketball team played home games during its first 11 seasons in the North Gym of White Building.  Standing-room-only crowds were not unusual in the early 1970s, especially when Penn State hosted intrastate rivals Edinboro, Cheyney or Pittsburgh. Rec Hall (1976-96)

 Recreation Building, affectionately called Rec Hall, opened to the public on January 5, 1929, when the Nittany Lions defeated Gettysburg, 37-34, in men’s basketball action.  Penn State’s first women’s basketball games at Rec Hall were in the 1976 AIAW Tournament. The Lady Lions made their Rec Hall debut on March 24, 1976, against eventual national champion Delta State.  In 1977, PSU played five games in Rec Hall, including tournament games against powerful Texas and Ohio State.  The 1979-80 season marked the permanent move to Rec Hall for the Lady Lions.  On March 12, 1982, Penn State hosted the first-ever NCAA Division I women’s basketball postseason game. The Lady Lions defeated Clemson, despite Lady Tiger Barbara Kennedy’s Rec Hall record 43-point effort.

 Penn State posted a perfect 28-0 mark in Rec Hall against Big Ten opponents as a member of the Conference.  The Lady Lions are 44-1 all-time against Big Ten opponents at Rec Hall.  The Lady Lions recorded five undefeated home campaigns while playing at Rec Hall. Bryce Jordan Center (1996-present)

 The Lady Lions moved to the Bryce Jordan Center in January 1996.  The Lady Lions are 152-37 (.804) all-time at the Bryce Jordan Center.  The Lady Lions christened their current home court on January 20, 1996 against SEC foe Georgia.  The Lady Lions sold out the Bryce Jordan Center twice during the 2003-04 campaign against Michigan (Feb. 15) and Purdue (Feb. 29).  The Lady Lions welcomed their one millionth fan through the turnstiles during the 2006-07 season.  The Jordan Center was completed in 1996 at a cost of $55 million.

 The all-time Rec Hall attendance record of 7,264 came on Feb. 6, 1994, in the “Pack the Track” sellout of No. 1 Penn State versus No. 8 Iowa. The Lady Lions claimed the 63-61 victory that was televised nationally on ESPN2.  The “Pack the Track” game was the first-ever national broadcast of a women’s basketball contest from Rec Hall.  The Lady Lions were 203-34 (.857) in 20 seasons playing at Rec Hall.

 Penn State was chartered in 1855 as one of the nation’s first colleges of scientific agriculture.  The institution was located in Centre County after James Irvin, a partner in the Centre Furnace iron works, agreed to donate 200 acres of farmland for a campus.  Penn State admitted its first students in 1859.  Founding President Evan Pugh hoped to expand the curriculum beyond agriculture to include other scientific studies and engineering. Pugh and similar visionaries in other states lobbied for Congressional passage of the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862.  As part of the Morrill Land-Grant Act, the Pennsylvania legislature designated Penn State the Commonwealth’s sole landgrant institution in 1863.  Penn State admitted its first female students in 1871.  In 1882, newly appointed President George W. Atherton introduced engineering studies, and Penn State soon became one of the nation’s 10 largest undergraduate engineering schools, a distinction it still holds.  Professor of English Fred Pattee was recruited to teach the nation’s first course in American literature, heretofore considered an unworthy stepchild of English literature.  Professor of Agriculture Whitman Jordan won international recognition for soil and fertilizer research.  Penn State graduated its first international student in 1890 and first African-American student in 1905.  In the early 1900s, Penn State became the nation’s first college to offer correspondence courses in agriculture, and in 1912 helped launch a statewide system of county agents in agriculture and home economics. Today’s World Campus, with its “anywhere, anytime” learning, is descended from that strong outreach tradition.

 In the 1930s, Penn State created a state-wide system of undergraduate centers for students who, because of Depressionera economics, could not afford to leave their hometowns to get a college education. The centers offered the first year of baccalaureate studies and were the predecessors of today’s system of 19 undergraduate campuses spread across the Commonwealth.  In 1953, the Pennsylvania State College became The Pennsylvania State University to show that research and graduate work had come of age.  The University was among the first academic institutions anywhere to operate a nuclear reactor, build a large-scale electronic computer, and develop an electron microscope.  In the 1960s, Penn State underwent tremendous expansion to meet the growing needs of the baby boom generation. Total enrollment at all campuses climbed to 40,000 by 1970.  Annual research expenditures now exceed $717 million and are a major factor in why Penn State is the largest single nongovernmental contributor to Pennsylvania’s economy. The University generates about $8.5 billion in total economic impact each year.  Today, as measured by the more than 100,000 applications for admissions it receives annually, Penn State is America’s most popular university. Enrollment is spread among 24 campuses statewide: University Park campus, the research and administrative hub; 19 primarily undergraduate campuses; Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center; the Pennsylvania College of Technology; the Dickinson School of Law; and the Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies.  Since admitting its first students in 1859, Penn State has awarded some 630,000 degrees whose value is recognized worldwide. That value reflects an educational experience second to none in quality and richness.

Penn State women’s basketball team proudly boasts seven position endowed scholarships and was the first of the school’s 29 sports to have endowed scholarships for all five of its starting positions. Helen “Choo” Chelius was a Penn State fan for more than 60 years. Her late husband Carl (’26) and son Carl (’73) are both PSU alumni. In 1999, she made an even stronger commitment to the program by endowing the first women’s basketball position at Penn State. Chelius established the scholarship for the point guard position. Adding to the Lady Lion tradition in 2000, John (‘56) and Joanne Spangler endowed the Lady Lions’ forward position, while Carl and Joyce Chelius endowed the shooting guard spot. In April 2001, then-Penn State women’s basketball coach Rene Portland and her husband, John Portland, committed $500,000 to the University to endow two undergraduate scholarships for student-athletes. One scholarship, a Lady Lion captain, is named in honor of the Portlands’ daughter, Christine M. Portland, who played on her mother’s team from 1995 to 1999 and was a captain of the 1998-99 team. The other scholarship, to support student-athletes who play the center position, is named in honor of Rene Portland’s late mother, Margaret “Granny” Muth. John and Ann Curley added to the number of endowed Lady Lion scholarships with the advent of their scholarship for a Lady Lion forward, while Nancy Dreibelbis endowed a scholarship for a Lady Lion point guard. To be eligible for scholarships, students must have outstanding academic records and be proficient in basketball. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year with the possibility of renewal in subsequent years.

PENN STATE ADMINISTRATION

TIMOTHY CURLEY

Director of Athletics

Well into his second decade as the architect of the Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics program, Tim Curley’s dynamic and passionate leadership has been the driving force behind the Nittany Lions’ tremendous level of athletic and academic achievement. Named Director of Athletics on December 30, 1993, Curley’s leadership has positioned Penn State among the nation’s premier athletic departments. During the Nittany Lions’ 17 full years as members of the Big Ten Conference, Penn State has captured 19 NCAA Championships, more than double the next closest Big Ten schools. Curley has seen Nittany Lion squads win 61 Big Ten titles and numerous individual national and conference crowns during his 16-plus years directing Penn State’s comprehensive and nationally-respected athletic program. The Lions have won eight NCAA Championships since March 2007. A 1976 Penn State graduate, Curley’s dedicated and enthusiastic leadership has helped Penn State capture 24 Big Ten championships or tournament titles the past five years, the second-highest total in the conference. During the fall 2005 semester, Penn State won an unprecedented five Big Ten Championships — in field hockey, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball — becoming the first institution to win more than three titles in the fall season in Big Ten history. Nittany Lion teams compiled an incredible 491 record against Big Ten competition in the fall. In June 2009, Curley again was recognized for his efforts in helping Penn State maintain its stature as one of the nation’s premier athletic programs with his selection as the Northeast Athletic Director-of-theYear by NACDA. He was one of just four regional Division I-A honorees and previously earned the award in 2003.

To continue to give the coaching staff and student-athletes the resources to succeed academically and athletically, Curley has guided the most ambitious fund-raising and athletics facilities campaigns in the department’s history. The “For The Future” Campaign entered the public phase in April 2010 and will conclude in 2014. More than $128 million was raised for Intercollegiate Athletics through June 2008 to easily surpass the Success With Honor Campaign goal of $100 million. The Athletics physical plant has improved substantially under Curley’s watch. The Nittany Lion Softball Park, golf clubhouse, soccer practice fields and men’s and women’s basketball offices are among projects recently completed or under construction. The most recently completed capital project was a new baseball stadium — Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The Penn State baseball team shares the state-of-theart facility with a short-season minor league team — the State College Spikes. Curley played a significant role in developing the unique partnership for the construction of the 5,406-seat stadium, which opened in June 2006. A new student fitness center and expanded and renovated wrestling practice center, locker room and strength training facilities opened in Rec Hall in recent years. The 12,500-seat expansion and renovation of Beaver Stadium was completed in 2001, raising the capacity to 107,282. The project included private suite and club level seating previously unavailable and creation of the Penn State All-Sports Museum to house the University’s impressive collection of sports memorabilia. Other facility projects completed in the past decade include the Lasch Football Building, Ashenfelter Indoor Multi-Sport Facility and Sarni Tennis Center and renovations to the White Building, East Area Locker Room, Jeffrey Field and a new field hockey facility. Curley also oversees the expansive intramural/club sport programs on the University Park campus, as well as general recreational activities. He’s charged as well with responsibility for the athletic and recreational programs at Penn State’s Commonwealth Campuses. Curley served as president of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) in 2005-06. He was the first Penn State Athletic Director to serve as president of NACDA, which is a professional and educational association for more than 6,100 athletic administrators at more than 1,600 institutions in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Elected a NACDA officer in 2002, Curley is a recent member of the NCAA Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) and the Board of Directors of the Honda Collegiate Women Sports Awards. He also is on the Boards of Visitors for Penn State’s John Curley Center for Sports Journalism and the advisory board for the 2010-11 Penn State Lady Lion Basketball Yearbook

Center for Sports Business and Research in The Smeal College of Business. Curley also was appointed to a special NCAA task force that reviewed Division I recruiting bylaws and to the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee, a group which he chaired. He previously was a member of the NCAA Division I Championships/ Competition Cabinet and served as chair of the NCAA Postseason Bowl Certification Sub-Committee. It is no exaggeration to say Tim Curley is someone who knows the Penn State athletic program from the ground up. A State College product, he grew up across the street from New Beaver Field where some of his most memorable days as a youngster were spent there and in Rec Hall. He parked cars, sold game programs and served as a baseball batboy. The top assistant to Athletic Director Jim Tarman, Curley was named Director of Athletics on December 30, 1993, when Tarman retired after 35 years as a Penn State athletic administrator. Curley, 56, has been a full-time member of the athletic staff since he joined the department as a graduate assistant football coach. A product of State College Area High School where he played basketball and football for Jim Williams’ undefeated 1971 team, Curley walked on as a football player only to have his career cut short by injuries. After earning his bachelor’s degree in health and physical education in 1976, he was a graduate assistant coach while pursuing his master’s degree in counselor education. Curley was named the Lions’ first full-time football recruiting coordinator in 1978 and was instrumental in identifying and recruiting a number of members of the 1982 national championship team. In 1981, he was named assistant to the athletic director where he was involved with the day-to-day operations of the department. Curley was active in the development of the Academic Support Center for Student-Athletes; the Penn State Sports Medicine Center; the Varsity “S” Club and the Football Letterman’s Club during his tenure as assistant to the athletic director. He also was instrumental in putting in place Penn State’s first NCAA compliance program and acted as the department’s compliance coordinator for five years before surrendering those responsibilities when he was named Associate Athletic Director in 1992. He is married to the former Melinda Harr of Washington, Pa., who earned degrees from Penn State in 1977 and 1986. The Curleys have two children — a daughter, Devon, and a son, Tanner.
