BUILDING MOMENTUM AFTER NCAA RETURN Lady Lions return 10 letterwinners from 25-win team

After returning to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2005-06, the Lady Lions are looking to parlay that NCAA trip and a 25-win season into a return to national prominence. With 10 returning letterwinners and a pair of solid newcomers on the roster, the expectations are high for head coach Coquese Washington and her Penn State squad that posted a 25-10 record a year ago and runner-up finishes in the Big Ten regular season and tournament standings.

After sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules, Nickson returned to the court with a vengeance where she accounted for 10.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Starting the final 27 games of the season, the redshirt junior was ninth in the Big Ten in rebounding and 14th in free throw percentage (.795). Nickson finished second in the league in field goal percentage with a .521 effort on the year and was third in offensive rebounds (3.2). Additionally, she tallied six double-doubles on the season.

“I believe that reaching and advancing in the NCAA Tournament gave our players a lot of confidence that they could compete with the best teams in the country,” Washington said. “They are hungry to do it again and to advance even farther than we did last year.”

“Mia is a captain and a leader for us, both on and off the court,” Washington said. “She gives us a physical presence inside. She is a workhorse that has an uncanny knack for scoring the ball. She’s one of those types of players that you hate to play against, but you love having her on your team.”

Leading the way for the Lady Lions are returning starters Alex Bentley, Zhaque Gray, Mia Nickson and Nikki Greene, as well as 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Maggie Lucas.

A daunting figure in the paint, Greene became one of the top shot-blocking forces in the conference en route to Big Ten All-Defensive Team honors. She tallied a career-best 75 rejections, which is sixth on the Penn State singleseason list, and became the seventh player in school history with 100 blocks. The All-Big Ten honorable mention choice has 130 rejections in two seasons. Greene was also solid on the boards for the Lady Lions, accounting for 7.8 rebounds per game to rank sixth in the Big Ten. A starter in every game, Greene chipped in 8.5 points and 1.1 steals per outing. She ranks third on the Lady Lions’ career blocked shots average list (2.0) and eight in rebounding average (7.0).

Bentley, the on-court general for Penn State, is coming off of her best collegiate season as she averaged 14.4 points, 5.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game en route to first team All-Big Ten accolades. She finished in the Top 15 in the Big Ten in scoring (12th), assists (2nd), field goal percentage (14th/.446), free throw percentage (11th/.798) and assist-to-turnover ratio (4th/1.7). For her efforts, Bentley was selected to participate in the USA Basketball World University Games trials alongside Lucas. “Alex is one of the best point guards in the nation and I am looking forward to watching her blossom on the floor this year,” Washington said. “She has improved every year that she has been here. This year, Lady Lion fans will see continued development in her game.“ Gray had a breakout season as a junior. She improved on her three-point shooting by 11% (.303 to .414) and her field goal shooting by 8.5% (.338 to .423). With a 9.5 scoring average, Gray also nearly doubled her scoring output to finish fourth on the team. Additionally, Gray was third in the Big Ten in three-point field goal percentage (.414) and eighth in three-pointers per game (1.8). She also had career bests of 78 rebounds, 53 assists and 19 steals last season. “As a senior, I am expecting really big things from Zha Zha,” Washington said. “She really came into her own last year. She played with a lot of confidence and did a tremendous job of growing her game from her freshman and sophomore year to her junior year. I am looking forward to watching that growth continue. She can certainly shoot the ball, but I think she has added some things to her game this year to keep defenses honest. I am really excited about watching her growth and potential on the court this year.”

“Nikki Greene is certainly a tremendous force for us in the paint," Washington said. “She’s intimidating on the defensive end of the floor and her athleticism and her skill on the offensive end gives us a viable presence down low.” Lucas quickly became a focus for opposing defenses as she etched her name into the Penn State and Big Ten record books in her outstanding rookie campaign. She broke the Big Ten and Penn State single-season record for three-pointers (112) en route to being selected as the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Sixth Player of the Year, as well as a Full Court Press Freshman All-American. Lucas was also selected to the All-Big Ten second team by the media and the third team by the coaches. The eight-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week broke Mazzante’s Penn State freshman season scoring record with a team-best 552 tallies, which is also 15th on Penn State’s single-season scoring list. Additionally, Lucas led the Big Ten in three-point field goals, was second in three-point field goal percentage (.426) and was seventh in scoring (15.8 ppg). “Maggie showed that she’s one of the best three-point shooters in the country, if not the best three-point shooter in the country,” Washington said. “Her range is incredible. Her competitive fire is off the charts. Her confidence is something that rubs off on the rest of the team. She’s a player that Lady

Lion fans are going to continue to enjoy watching play.”

East missed a portion of the season after coming back from an ACL injury in high school. She saw time in 15 games and tallied 12 points, 19 rebounds and two blocks.

The backcourt has played a significant role in Penn State’s success with an up-tempo style of play. Guards Renee Womack, Gizelle Studevent and Ariel Edwards compliment the trio of Bentley, Gray and Lucas.

“Talia is a very strong, physical presence down in the post,” Washington said. “She had a slow freshman year because of her recovery from a knee injury, but I anticipate that this year she will be more comfortable on the floor and her skills will shine through.”

Womack is a solid defensive force for the Lady Lions. She accounted for 33 steals a year ago after tearing her ACL during the 2009-10 season. She also tallied 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per outing last season. “Renee is a tremendous defender,” Washington said. “Her athletic ability and her defensive presence will impact our transition game.” Studevent appeared in 24 games last season, accounting for 1.5 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. She knocked down two of her three attempts from three-point range. “Gizelle is a tremendous athlete who will really shine in our up-tempo game,” Washington said. “She is poised to have a breakout season this year.” Edwards was a solid reserve for the Lady Lions in her freshman season. She appeared in 33 games and accounted for 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Edwards was also solid at the free throw stripe with an .857 mark, which is fourth on Penn State’s freshman season free throw percentage list. Edwards also tallied 13 assists, nine steals and four blocks in her rookie campaign. “Lady Lion fans are going to see a much more confident, much improved Ariel Edwards,” Washington said. “She’s got a tremendous amount of talent, so much versatility and she is going to impact our team in positive ways on both ends of the floor.” In the post, Marisa Wolfe and Talia East along with freshman center Tori Waldner join Nickson and Greene down low. Wolfe earned her first eight collegiate starts last season and finished the year averaging 2.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. The junior was outstanding from the free throw line, going 17-for-20 (.850). Wolfe also tallied a careerbest eight assists, 12 steals and five blocked shots. “Marisa is a versatile post player for us and she contributes in a variety of ways on the court,” Washington said.

Waldner earned All-Region 6AAAAA first team honors as a senior at Milton High School and was a 2011 McDonald’s All-American nominee. She chipped in 12.0 points and 8.0 rebounds as a senior to lead the Eagles to a 22-5 record and the Elite 8 in the State Championship playoffs in 2011. “I love having Tori on the team,” Washington said. “She has a tremendous attitude for a freshman. She’s eager to learn, eager to get better. She brings size, skill and a quick mind to our post crew. I think she is going to have a big presence on the floor this year.” In addition to Waldner, the Lady Lions have added Dara Taylor, a transfer from the University of Maryland to the roster. However, Taylor will have to sit out the 2011-12 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Taylor, who will practice with the team, broke Maryland’s freshman season assists record with 171 helpers in 2009-10. She recorded more than six assists in 15 of 27 starts en route to finishing third in the ACC in assists and sixth in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.2). In high school at Caravel Academy, Taylor was the 2008-09 Delaware Gatorade Player of the Year. “I wish Dara could suit up for us this year, but her contributions will be seen on the practice floor where her quickness, her passing ability and her defensive intensity will prepare us for every opponent we will see this year,” Washington said. The Lady Lions will face a tough schedule again this year with 16 teams that appeared in the NCAA Tournament or the WNIT a season ago on the 2011-12 slate. During a challenging non-conference schedule, Penn State will meet perennial contender North Carolina in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, Texas Tech in the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge and Iowa State. The Big Ten is expected to be strong again this season after sending eight teams to the postseason a year ago. “Once again, I believe that we will have a very competitive schedule,” Washington said. “Our non-conference schedule is filled with teams that played in the NCAA Tournament last year and teams that will give us good challenges on the court in different ways. Our conference is going to be as competitive, if not more competitive, than it was last year. We have a lot of the best players in the conference returning, so I believe the Big Ten is going to be extremely tough and there won’t be a night off at all once we get into conference play.”

COQUESE WASHINGTON Head Coach * 5th Season Notre Dame ‘92

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 African-American 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.”

Penn State was a dominating force from the perimeter as the Lady Lions tied the school record with 228 three-pointers and led NCAA Division I from deep with a .415 three-point field goal percentage. Pacing the Lady Lions from downtown was Maggie Lucas, who broke the Big Ten three-pointers record with 112 triples to go along with a .426 shooting percentage. For her efforts, Lucas was selected as the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year while breaking the Penn State freshman season scoring record (552 pts.). Additionally with Washington’s guidance, Alex Bentley became the 11th different player in school history to take home first team All-Big Ten accolades after finishing second in the conference in assists. After outstanding seasons, both Lucas and Bentley were invited to USA Basketball World University Games Trials.

The Lady Lions returned to the national stage in Washington’s fourth year with a second-place finish in the Big Ten regular season standings, a runner-up finish in the Big Ten Tournament and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Penn State tallied its most victories since the 2003-04 campaign and 23rd 20-win season with a 25-10 overall record and an 11-5 mark in conference play. The Lady Lions worked their way back to the “Big Dance” for the first time since 2004-05 and advanced to the second round for the first time in seven years with a win over Dayton in the first round in front of a raucous Bryce Jordan Center crowd. After a remarkable season in the books and steps toward returning the Lady Lions to national prominence, Washington was selected as the 2011 BCA Female Coach of the Year.

Washington was also instrumental in the development of center Nikki Greene, who earned a spot on the Big Ten All-Defensive team and All-Big Ten honorable mention accolades after recording 75 blocks on the year. Julia Trogele also claimed All-Big Ten honorable mention honors to close out her career. Washington’s third season 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 All-Big 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 Bentley to third team All-Big Ten honors, as well as a unanimous selection to the Big Ten All-Freshman team. That year, 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 included just the second McDonald’s High School All-American in Penn State history in Lucas, WBCA High School All-American Ariel Edwards and All-State 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. Under Washington’s guidance in 2008-09, Grant became the 10th different player in school history to earn first team All-Big Ten honors. Grant was also a semifinalist for the Naismith Player of the Year award. 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 All-Americans in Greene and 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 Games and U19 World Championships, respectively. In her first season at the helm, Washington and the Lady Lions picked up two nationally-televised wins on ESPN and CBS, downed two nationally-ranked foes and took home the 25th regular-season tournament crown in program history.

COQUESE’S COMMENTS v My favorite quote is “You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence

therefore is not an act, but a habit!” v Three words that describe my personality are driven, focused and

diverse. v The most famous person from my high school is Jim Abbott

(MLB pitcher that played with only one hand). v If I could bring anything from my hometown it would be Halo

Burger and Big John’s Steak & Onion. v When I was little, I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up. v The one thing that makes me cringe is watching athletes get

injured on replay. v I am as good as anyone at wiffle ball. v People don’t know this about me, but I never dreamed of being a basketball coach. v I’d love to trade places with First Lady Michelle Obama for one day. v My favorite pro basketball players are Isiah Thomas (old school), Derrick Rosel (new school) and Tamika Catchings (WNBA). v I can’t go a day without hugging and kissing my children. v My favorite hobbies are listening to music and reading. v If I was on a reality show, it would be “Celebrity Fit Club.” v My favorite vending machine items are Mountain Dew and Twix. v My favorite thing about Happy Valley is the picturesque mountains.

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. During Washington’s eight years on the bench, Notre Dame amassed a 188-69 record with eight NCAA Tournament appearances, including four Sweet Sixteen runs and a National Championship in 2001. 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). “Recruiting is the life-blood of our profession. You have to 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.” 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. She was a two-time All-Midwestern Collegiate Conference (MCC) selection and led Notre Dame to three MCC Tournament titles. Washington led the team in steals in each of her four seasons and was tops on the squad in assists three times. Washington is first on UND’s all-time steals per game list (2.7), second in career steals (307), fifth in assists (554), 10th in three-pointers made (82) and 10th in minutes per game (27.6).

The epitome of a student-athlete, Washington graduated from Notre Dame in 1992, a full year ahead of schedule, with a bachelor’s degree in history. She went on to attain “Double Domer” status in 1997 after earning her Juris Doctorate from the Notre Dame Law School. Washington juggled finishing her law degree with the start of her professional basketball career. She returned to the hardwood as a professional in 1997-98, playing for the ABL’s Portland Power before spending a two-year stint with the WNBA’s New York Liberty (1998-99). Washington moved to Houston for the 2000 season, where she played an instrumental role in leading the Comets to the WNBA title. She had a solid season in 2001 with the Comets and Hall of Fame coach Van Chancellor, finishing ninth in the WNBA in assists and fourth in steals as Houston earned its fifth consecutive playoff berth. Washington started the 2002 campaign with Houston before being traded to the Indiana Fever at the midway point of the season. Washington guided the Fever to their first-ever playoff berth and became the first player in WNBA history to lead three different teams to the postseason. She finished her professional career in 2003 as a member of the Fever. “The experience of playing in the WNBA is one that is just like a dream come true, to be able to play in that league and to say that I did it is something that I will always remember. I really enjoyed the opportunity to play with the world’s best players. When you start looking at some of the greatest players to ever play women’s basketball, I got a chance to play with them and against them.” Utilizing her law degree, Washington was a central figure in helping create the WNBA Players Association (WNBPA), serving as the founding president of the WNBPA from 1999 until 2001. She also served as the Executive Vice President of the WNBPA from 2001 until her retirement in 2003. Washington led negotiations for the association’s first collective bargaining agreement as the association’s president, and as the executive vice president was a mainstay in the negotiations for the league’s second collective bargaining agreement, which brought about the first free agency system in women’s professional sports. In addition to assisting with the efforts of the WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State to raise money and awareness for breast cancer, Washington created Coquese’s Drive for the Women’s Resource Center. The first four Coquese’s Drives raised more than $56,869 for the Centre County Women’s Resource Center to aid in the fight against domestic violence.

FRED CHMIEL

Assistant Coach * 2nd Season Excelsior College Chmiel (pronounced shuh-MEAL) joined the Lady Lion coaching staff in May 2010. Chmiel came to Happy Valley after spending the previous two years at San Diego State University as an assistant coach. Chmiel’s primary responsibility is working with the guards. He also serves as the team’s defensive coordinator, takes a lead role in opponent scouting and assists in all recruiting efforts. “Fred has been an excellent addition to our program. His impact was felt immediately,” Washington said. “He is very energetic and an experienced teacher, and is a proven winner. He has built a strong rapport with our players which allows him to get their maximum effort on the court. Under his tutelage, our guards corps has quickly become one of the best in the country.”

State and Big Ten single-season record for three-pointers (112) and also shattered Kelly Mazzante’s Penn State freshman season scoring record with 552 tallies. Lucas finished the season 11th in the NCAA in three-point field goal percentage (.426) and fourth in Division I in three-point field goals per game (3.2). While at San Diego State, Chmiel worked with the perimeter players, scouted opponents and served as the academic liaison. Chmiel helped the Aztecs to back-to-back Mountain West Conference regular-season titles and the 2010 Mountain West Conference Tournament Championship. During his tenure, SDSU earned its first NCAA Tournament bid in 13 years in 2009 and again led the Aztecs to the “Big Dance” in 2010.

Chmiel was instrumental in the growth of Alex Bentley and Zhaque Gray in his first season at Penn State. Under Chmiel’s tutelage, Bentley became the 11th different player in school history to garner first team All-Big Ten honors as she was second in the conference in assists and 12th in scoring. Gray made a marked improvement between her sophomore and junior years as she improved on her three-point shooting by 11% (.303 to .414) and her field goal shooting by 8.5% (.338 to .423). With a 9.5 scoring average, the Chicago native also nearly doubled her scoring output to finish fourth on the team. Additionally, Chmiel worked closely with 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year Maggie Lucas. Lucas, who was also the Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year, broke the Penn

The Palmer, Alaska native mentored 2010 WNBA Draft pick Jené Morris and all-conference pick Quenese Davis. Under Chmiel’s direction, Morris became just the second player in Mountain West Conference history to win Defensive Player of the Year honors twice and was the first WNBA Draft selection in school history. Davis garnered third team AllMountain West Conference accolades in 2010 and finished her career as the school’s all-time assists leader. Prior to his coaching stint at San Diego State, Chmiel served an as assistant coach under Dawn Staley at Temple for two seasons. He helped the Owls to two Atlantic 10 Championships and a pair of NCAA Tournament berths. In Chmiel’s two seasons in Philadelphia, the Owls posted a 46-21 overall record with a 25-3 mark in A-10 play.


No stranger to professional women’s basketball, Chmiel has WNBA ties, serving as an advance scout for the Indiana Fever and Detroit Shock and as an assistant coach for the Charlotte Sting. He mentored former Lady Lions Helen Darling and Kelly Mazzante while with the Sting for the 2005 season. Additionally, he was the head coach of the San Jose Spiders of the National Women’s Basketball League in 2006 where he led the Spiders to their best franchise record and a runner-up finish in the NWBL. Chmiel began his coaching career in men’s basketball with stints as the head coach at Lassen College (1999-05) and at his alma mater Feather River College (1995-99), both of which are in California. He led Lassen College to three Golden Valley Conference titles in his six seasons at the helm. Chmiel also served as an assistant men’s coach at Feather River College in 1994-95. A standout guard at Feather River College in Quincy, Calif., Chmiel averaged 12.5 points and 6.0 assists in two seasons. He was a first team All-Golden Valley Conference choice and was a two-time team Defensive MVP. Following his junior college career, Chmiel played for two seasons at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Chmiel earned his bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from Excelsior College in Albany, N.Y. He and his wife, Julie, a Pittsburgh native, reside in State College with their daughter, Skylar Rosa (1).

Penn State also posted 14 games with 80 or more points, including seven contests with 95 or more tallies. In addition, Damon coaches the wings and plays a vital role in opponent scouting. “Without question, Kia is one of the nation’s best recruiting coordinators,” Washington said. “With her engineering our recruiting efforts, Penn State will continue to bring in the type of talent that will enable us to compete for Big Ten Championships and NCAA Championships on an annual basis. She also is very skilled in player development, elevating the skill level, personal growth and in-game impact of our wings.”

MAREN WALSETH

Assistant Coach * 5th Season Penn State ‘02 Walseth is in her fifth season at her alma mater where she is primarily responsible for coaching the post players. In addition to her duties as the post coach, Walseth concentrates on special situations for the Lady Lions, while also playing a significant role in the team’s recruiting and opponent scouting efforts. She is also the team liaison for academic advising. “Simply put, Maren is an outstanding post coach and I am very pleased with her development of our post players,” Washington says. “Her passion for Lady Lion basketball shows itself every day and that passion rubs off on everyone involved with our program.” Walseth’s influence on center Nikki Greene became evident in 2010-11 as Greene grew into an all-conference performer in her sophomore season. A daunting figure in the paint, Greene became one of the top shot-blocking forces in the conference en route to Big Ten All-Defensive Team honors. She tallied a career-best 75 rejections, which is sixth on the Penn State single-season list, and became the seventh player in school history with 100 blocks. A 2011 All-Big Ten honorable mention selection, Greene was also solid on the boards for the Lady Lions as she accounted for 7.8 rebounds per game to rank sixth in the Big Ten.

finished second in the league in field goal percentage with a .521 effort and was third in offensive rebounds (3.2). In 2009-10, Walseth guided Greene, who was the only Lady Lion to start every game. Greene took home Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors (Dec. 14) and finished second on the team in rebounding (6.2 rpg). She was a presence in the paint, rejecting 55 shots, the second-best total among freshman in Penn State history and the ninth-highest single-season total in Lady Lion history. Additionally, Walseth worked with Marisa Wolfe, who was selected as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Feb. 22, and Janessa Wolff, who finished her career 15th in school history with 67 blocked shots. On the academic front, Penn State continued to find success with five Lady Lions earning Academic All-Big Ten honors. The Lions had seven players earn 3.0 or better GPAs in the fall semester and seven 3.0s or higher in the spring. Additionally, four Lady Lions were on the Dean’s List in the spring semester. The former Lady Lion guided a young group of post players into becoming regular contributors in 2008-09. Julia Trogele was solid for the Lady Lions as she led the team in rebounding and finished fourth in scoring, while Wolff was fifth on the team in scoring and second in rebounding. As the academic liaison, Walseth guided the Lady Lions to a 3.20 team GPA in the fall semester and a 3.12 team GPA in the spring semester during the 2008-09 campaign. Penn State also landed six student-athletes on the Academic All-Big Ten list, which is tied for the most honorees in program history.

With Walseth’s guidance, Mia Nickson’s development was astounding as she accounted for 10.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game after sitting out the 2009-10 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Nickson was ninth in the Big Ten in rebounding and 14th in free throw percentage (.795). Nickson

Walseth worked with a very young group of post players in her first season at Penn State but found success when she developed the young, inexperienced group into solid contributors. Wolff corralled 140 rebounds in her rookie campaign, which was seventh on Penn State’s freshman charts. She also led all Big Ten freshmen in field goal percentage. Academically, the Lady Lions racked up three 4.0 GPAs during the 2007-08 academic year. Walseth returned to Happy Valley after three seasons as an assistant coach at the United States Naval Academy. While at Navy, Walseth was primarily responsible for working with the post players, including the development of All-Patriot League performer Nikki Curtis and All-Lowe’s Senior CLASS first team selection Kate Hobbs. Additionally, Walseth assisted with recruiting, prepared team scouting reports, managed the film exchange program and worked with the male scout team. She also served as the academic liaison for the women’s basketball team. As a player at Penn State, Walseth was a key member of the Lady Lion team that advanced to the 2000 NCAA Final Four. Walseth, who was also a member of the 1998 WNIT Championship team, is 15th on the Lady Lions’ career scoring charts with 1,328 points and 17th in rebounding (645). During her career, Walseth earned All-Big Ten first team accolades in 2000 and 2001, a Kodak All-District berth in 2001 and a spot on the Big Ten All-Freshman squad in 1998. After her time at Penn State, Walseth, who was the Sacramento Monarch’s third-round pick in the 2001 WNBA Draft, spent four years in the professional ranks. Walseth spent the 2002 season with the Washington Mystics of the WNBA, before heading overseas to play with Cavigal of the French Basketball Federation in 2002-03. She also played with SCAB 63 of the French Basketball Federation, in addition to a season with the Colorado Chill of the National Women’s Basketball League. Walseth was inducted into the Bloomington Jefferson (Minn.) High School Hall of Fame as part of the inaugural class in the fall of 2006. Also part of the inaugural class were NHL players Ben Clymer and Mark Parrish and former Charlotte Hornet Kevin Lynch.

“It is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life, to be the first Penn State women’s team to go to the Final Four. We are a part of history and will always be connected.” -Chrissy Falcone

“I remember running out for the game and my legs were shaking so bad in warm-ups that I could barely shoot a layup. There were over 20,000 people there and I just couldn’t believe that I was playing in an NCAA Final Four. It was definitely a dream come true and was such an amazing experience.” -Lisa Shepherd.

2000 Final Four “I remember arriving in Philly to the TV cameras and the kids with signs, and thinking, wow, this is the real deal! We were treated like superstars! You dream about that one shining moment ... and we had it, it was ours and no one can ever take that away from the 10 of us. It’s fun every year to go to the Final Four and see the previous years’ banners hanging from the current arena. When I see the Philly Bell, I know that we were there, Penn State Proud!” -Maren Walseth

“The memory that keeps coming to my mind is at the Final Four banquet, they gave us chocolates in the shape of Liberty Bells. I was seated near Rashana Barnes and the player on my other side (I won’t mention any names!) said something like ‘Oh, my bell is cracked.’ Rashana and I both looked at her wondering if she could be serious, then realizing that she absolutely was! She had no idea the bell was cracked, and just thought she was getting a misformed piece of chocolate.” -Jen Price, Assistant Coach

“The moment I remember most is when Helen, Dre and I stood on the court in the First Union Center, looking at the seats filled with the Liberty Bell seat cushions. We were all thinking back to the time our freshman year when we went to watch the Final Four in Cincinnati and set our goals on reaching our own Final Four one day. At that moment, one of us asked if it was all worth it and if we could do it again? We joking said that we wouldn’t do it ‘all’ again, but it was worth it.” -Marissa Graby 2011-12 Penn State Lady Lion Yearbook

Penn State Tradition 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.

The Lady Lions broke the single-season school record for three-point field goal percentage (.4153), previously held by the 198687 team (.4146). Additionally, with 228 threes last year, the Lady Lions tied the single-season record for three-pointers made, equalling the mark set by the 2002-03 squad. The 228 triples are tied for the fourth-most in Big Ten history. 22ND NCAA TOURNAMENT BERTH: The Lady Lions made their 22nd overall NCAA Tournament appearance and first since dropping a first round decision to Liberty in the 2005 tourney.

The Lady Lions posted a first round win over Dayton before falling to nationallyranked and third-seeded DePaul in a thrilling second round contest.

LEADING THE NATION FROM DEEP: The Lady Lions led the NCAA in three-point field goal percentage (.415).

Bentley accounted for 15.3 points, 3.3 assists and 3.0 steals in three tourney games, while Lucas added 14.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals per outing. ALL-BIG TEN HONORS: After posting its best Big Ten campaign since 2003-04, the Lady Lions were rewarded by having four different players be honored with Big Ten postseason awards. Guard Maggie Lucas led the selections after winning both the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year. Additionally, sophomore guard Alex Bentley garnered first team All-Big Ten honors for the first time in her career, while Lucas was an AllBig Ten choice (second – media; third – coaches) Senior guard/forward Julia Trogele and sophomore center Nikki Greene were honorable mention choices. Greene was also named to the Big Ten AllDefensive team.

HOME WINS: The Lady Lions picked up their 14th home win of the season with a 75-66 decision over Dayton March 19. With the 14 home wins, the Lady Lions earned their most home wins since the 200203 squad was a perfect 16-0 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

LUCAS TABBED FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR: Maggie Lucas became just the second Lady Lion to win Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors, joining Kelly Mazzante, who won the award in 2001. She is also the first Penn State player to claim Sixth Player of the Year accolades. In addition to her major awards, Lucas was named to the All-Big Ten second team by the media and the third team by the coaches. Lucas made an immediate impact for the Lady Lions, as she was seventh in the Big Ten in scoring at a 15.8 per game rate. Lucas, who took home a conference-record eight Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors, leads the league and is second in the NCAA in three-pointers per game (3.2). The Narberth, Pa. native is also second in the Big Ten and in the Top 10 nationally in three-point field goal percentage (.426).

BEST BIG TEN FINISH SINCE 2004: Penn State’s win over Northwestern, coupled with Wisconsin’s loss to Ohio State, meant that the Lady Lions finished in sole possession of second place. It was highest finish for a Penn State team since the 200304 squad won the Big Ten title. BIG TEN WINS: With a 66-56 win over Northwestern Feb. 27, the Lady Lions picked up their 11th Big Ten win of the year.

THE BIG TEN CONFERENCE Formed more than 115 years ago, the Big Ten Conference is an association of world-class academic institutions with shared values and goals. Since its inception in 1896, the pursuit and attainment of academic excellence has been the priority for every member institution. However, maintaining the conference’s status as one of the preeminent athletic conference’s in the country also endures as an important component of the Big Ten student-athlete experience. Recognized as one of intercollegiate sports’ most successful undertakings, the Big Ten strives for success from its student-athletes not only on the field and in the classroom, but around the world as well.

TELEVISION EXPOSURE The Big Ten’s media agreements with CBS Sports, ABC/ESPN, FOX Sports and the Big Ten Network (BTN) provide the conference with its greatest television exposure ever. Over 900 Big Ten events are produced and distributed nationally on an annual basis, more than any other conference.

ACADEMICS All Big Ten Universities have been granted Tier One Status by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, a distinction awarded to just over 100 universities in the country.

ATTENDANCE Big Ten fans are some of the nation’s most supportive, with more than 8.9 million patrons attending conference home contests during the 2010-11 seasons for football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball alone.

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 2011. The Big Ten ranks first with 23 top-25 programs in the fields of law, medical (research and primary care), business and engineering. SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS During the 2010-11 season, the Big Ten claimed six team national championships, including titles for Northwestern women’s lacrosse, Ohio State synchronized swimming and men’s volleyball, Penn State women’s volleyball and wrestling and Wisconsin women’s ice hockey. The Big Ten led all conferences with national titles in 13 different NCAAsponsored championships from 2001-02 to 2010-11. Over that time period, the Big Ten produced championships in cross country, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, volleyball and wrestling. STUDENT-ATHLETE OPPORTUNITIES Big Ten universities provide over $120 million in direct financial aid to more than 9,500 men and women student-athletes who compete for 25 Big Ten championships, 12 for men and 13 for women.

In 2006, the Big Ten created the first national conference-owned television network, the BTN. It launched on Aug. 30, 2007, and now is in its fifth year of operation. It is available to approximately 75 million homes nationally, and appears in 19 of the top 20 national media markets.

HONORING LEGENDS. BUILDING LEADERS. The mission of the Big Ten Conference has always been to excel athletically without compromising the priority our member institutions assign to their academic standards and to their commitment to student academic success. We seek to celebrate the many accomplishments of Big Ten student-athletes while continuously reinforcing each of our member institutions’ high academic standards. Striking that important balance between academics and athletics is integral to the Big Ten’s identity, and that philosophy led to the genesis of the new football division names. Both names link directly to the Big Ten mission. LEGENDS DIVISION LOGO A respectful acknowledgement of the 18 Heisman Trophy winners and 215 College Football Hall of Famers that have graced our fields and sidelines for the past 115 years. LEADERS DIVISION LOGO A hopeful and aspirational acknowledgment that we believe the college athletics experience helps to develop the characteristics that Big Ten student-athletes will need to become leaders for the rest of their lives - in their homes, jobs and in their communities.

Conference institutions sponsor 298 teams. Other than the Ivy League, the Big Ten has the most broad-based athletic programs in the United States.

2011-12 BIG TEN COMPOSITE SCHEDULE The Big Ten Advisory Commission Long a leader in innovative practices and policies beneficial to intercollegiate athletics, the Big Ten Conference has been at the forefront in addressing and investigating the problems and concerns of minority student-athletes. The Big Ten Advisory Commission, formed almost 20 years ago, represents a positive approach to achieving the Big Ten’s goal of providing quality and equal education for all of its student-athletes. The Commission consists of 11 former AfricanAmerican alumnae and alumni from each member University. Each individual represented their institution in athletics and now are prominent professionals in their chosen fields. Rahsaan Carlton is a 1997 graduate of Penn State with a degree in Recreation and Parks Management. He recently completed his Master’s degree in health education at Penn State Harrisburg in August 2010. Carlton was a four-year letterman (199397) on the Nittany Lion basketball team, serving as team captain his senior year. The Director of Athletics at Penn State-Harrisburg since August of 2005, Carlton heads a 12-sport varsity program, which competes at the Division III level. In addition to the direct supervision of nine head coaches, he oversees the compliance efforts for the department, and prepares and manages the annual budget.

THE BIG TEN NETWORK Headquartered in Chicago, BTN is the first internationally distributed television network dedicated to covering one of America’s premier collegiate conferences. With more than 350 live sports events, and virtually all of them in high definition, BTN 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. Where to Find Us The network is available to an estimated 80 million households, through agreements with more than 300 cable, satellite and telco affiliates in all 50 states and Canada. That includes existing distribution agreements with each of the nation’s 10 largest cable, satellite and telco providers (Comcast, DIRECTV, Dish Network, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, Verizon FiOS, Bright House Networks and AT&T U-Verse).

Why the Network Was Created BTN 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, BTN became the first network in cable or satellite television history to reach 30 million subscribers within its first 30 days on the air. BTN is a joint venture between subsidiaries of the Big Ten Conference and Fox Cable Networks. BTN’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.

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. The network is available on cable 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 www.bigtennetwork.com/channelfinder. Cable subscribers inside the Big Ten states receive the network on either an expanded basic or digital basic level of service. Outside the Big Ten states, cable operators that carry the network make it available on a variety of packages. BTN Programming BTN 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 400+ events. Each year’s schedule is comprised of approximately 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. In addition to live events, the network also airs coaches’ shows and classic games. Each campus also has the opportunity to produce original, campus programming highlighting various aspects of campus life and the qualities that make each university unique. Some of BTN’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 realworld television experience.

102

Committed to Women’s Sports No other network devotes itself to women’s sports as much as BTN. The network schedule annually features more than 200 women’s events, in the sports of basketball, ice hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field and volleyball. The network is the television home for at least 55 women’s basketball games each year, including 10 Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament games and a full studio presence at the tournament. Each week during the academic year, the network produces and airs the Big Ten Women’s Sports Report, a program dedicated exclusively to the highlights and accomplishments of female Big Ten student-athletes. Career Experience: Streaming and Student U Above and beyond the network’s 350 televised events, the network streamed more than 400 events in 2010-11. These games are available live and on-demand on BTN’s website. Many of these streamed events are “Student U” events. Shot, produced and announced entirely by Big Ten students, the network’s Student U initiative gives students on every Big Ten campus a chance to gain hands-on experience in the highly-competitive career field television production. After the program’s two years, the network “graduated” a number of students into full-scale, professional BTN productions or full-time employment in the Chicago headquarters, giving launch to their own television careers.

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.

Bryce Jordan Center (1996-present)

The Lady Lions moved to the Bryce Jordan Center in January 1996. The Lady Lions are 174-47 (784) 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.

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. 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 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.
