LADY LIONS POISED TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP Penn State

returns nine letterwinners from

In 2011-12, the Lady Lions returned to the top of the Big Ten standings for the first time since 2003-04 with a 13-3 record in conference play and a 26-7 mark overall en route to their sixth overall Big Ten regular-season title and fourth outright crown. In addition, Penn State continued its climb on the national stage with a berth in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen with wins over UTEP and LSU before falling to Connecticut. The Lady Lions were ranked in both polls for all but one week of the season and finished ninth in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll and 11th in the Associated Press Top 25. With nine letterwinners, including four starters, and the addition of two McDonald’s High School All-Americans to the lineup, the expectations will remain high for the Lady Lions this season. “I am excited about the season,” head coach Coquese Washington said. “We return our nucleus, and the energy and the focus that the team has displayed is impressive. We are looking forward to defending the Big Ten title and we recognize it’s going to take a lot of hard work to do that. Our conference is really tough. But I have no doubt in my mind that our team is going to take that challenge head on and work to make that happen.” The Lady Lions return the highly-touted backcourt tandem of All-Americans Alex Bentley and Maggie Lucas. The pair, who are both on the 2013 Wade Watch List, were also selected to the All-Big Ten first team en route to their national accolades. Bentley was a WBCA honorable mention All-America selection, while Lucas took home Associated Press honorable mention All-America honors. Bentley was on the All-Big Ten first team for the second-straight season after finishing second in the Big Ten and in the Top 20 nationally in steals, averaging 3.0 per game. The Big Ten All-Defensive team choice led Big Ten action with 49 steals in 16 games. She is the first Lady Lion to lead the league in steals since Jess Strom paced the conference in back-to-back years in 2003-04 and 200405. Additionally, Bentley was 11th in the conference in scoring (14.1), fourth in assists (4.7) and seventh in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4). She enters her senior season 10th on Penn State’s career assists list (455), 15th in scoring (1,335) and 12th in steals (216). “Alex is the most competitive player I have ever coached, both as an assistant and head coach,” Washington said. “Her competitive drive is what propels this team. When the stakes are at their highest, that’s generally when Alex performs her best. She’s a captain, she’s the unquestioned leader for this team and I have no doubt that her competitive nature and strong leadership skills are going to be significant for us this year. She’s improved aspects of her game every year.” Lucas turned in an outstanding sophomore campaign as she transformed her game to become more of a threat off of the dribble to compliment her long-range accuracy. Lucas was in the Top 20 in NCAA Division I in scoring (19.5 - 20th), free throw percentage (12th - .886) and three-point field goal percentage (.410 -

team

8th). With 642 tallies a year ago, she became just the fourth different Lady Lion to score more than 600 points in a season. Additionally, the Narberth, Pa. native surpassed the 1,000-point plateau to become just the third sophomore in school history and 11th-fastest player in Big Ten history to accomplish the feat. Lucas enters her junior year 25th in Penn State history in scoring (1,194), third in threepointers (194) and first in career free throw percentage (.881). “Maggie is the most driven player I’ve ever coached in my entire coaching career,” Washington said. “Her work ethic is off the charts and, as talented as she is, she continues to get better each and every year because of that strong work ethic. She’s transformed her game from simply being a three-point shooter to being a dynamic scorer and player that can put the ball in the basket in a variety of ways. She truly enjoys playing the game of basketball and that passion is evident anytime she is on the floor.” Penn State also remains solid in the front court with the return of All-Big Ten performers Nikki Greene and Mia Nickson for their senior seasons. Greene continues to serve as a imposing threat on the interior for the Lady Lions, earning third team All-Big Ten honors a year ago. The senior center averaged a career-high 9.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game last season. She also rejected 46 shots a year ago to bring her career total to 176, which is fifth on Penn State’s career blocks chart. Greene became the 27th member of the Lady Lions’ 500-rebound club last season and is now 12th in school history with 723 caroms. “Nikki Greene is poised to have the best season she’s had since she’s been here at Penn State,” Washington said. “She’s worked on her game this summer and her confidence is at an all-time high. She’s feeling very comfortable on the court with what we are asking her to do within our style of play. That mental growth, coupled with her physical skills and attributes could lead her to have the best year that she’s had in a Penn State uniform.” Nickson missed nine games and large portions of three other contests last season as she fought through a series of injuries, but still averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. She was named to the NCAA Tournament Kingston All-Region team after tallying 19 points, five rebounds and two steals against eventual National Semifinalist Connecticut. In Big Ten play, Nickson was eighth in rebounding (7.5) and 10th in field goal percentage (.455). She is a three-time team captain for the Lady Lions. “Last year, Mia did not play at 100% for much of the year and still was a huge impact for us. She helped lead us to a Big Ten Championship and Sweet Sixteen berth,” Washington said. “This year with her being healthy, I am looking forward to her having a dominating season for us on the court. She brings versatility, workmanship and a physical presence to our inside game. She’s a fantastic rebounder and she’s expanded her game to be more effective away from the basket.”

2012-13 Penn State Lady Lion Yearbook


Also returning in the backcourt for the Lady Lions are junior swing player Ariel Edwards and senior guard Gizelle Studevent. The Lady Lions will also get a spark with the addition of redshirt junior Dara Taylor, who sat out the 2011-12 season after transferring from Maryland.

“Talia has really improved her game,” Washington said. “She’s a more polished post player on offense and is playing with a lot more confidence going into her junior year. She’s a strong, bruising post player whose physical presence is going to pay a lot of dividends on the court for us this year.”

Edwards took on a greater role for the Lady Lions last season, including nine starts, accounting for 7.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per outing. She set personal season highs in scoring (202), rebounding (125), assists (32), steals (22), field goal percentage (.329) and blocks (5). Edwards more than doubled her scoring and rebounding output as sophomore and increased her shooting percentage.

Waldner appeared in 31 games and averaged 2.0 points and 2.2 rebounds. She also rejected 18 shots and nabbed 16 steals. The native of Milton, Ga. connected on 44.6% of her shots from the field as a rookie.

“Ariel is one of the most versatile and athletic players we have on the team,” Washington said. “She can shoot the ball from behind the arc, she’s a great slasher, she rebounds and her size, quickness and speed makes her tough on defense. Ariel is the type of player that can fill up the stat sheet in every category and I imagine this will be a breakout year for her.” Studevent has provided great support off the bench for the Lady Lions. The senior guard set personal season marks in points (59), rebounds (38), steals (9), assists (18), field goal percentage (.406) and free throw percentage (.875) a year ago. Studevent saw time in 31 games, averaging nearly 10 minutes per outing. “Gizelle is one of the most athletic players on our team,” Washington said. “She has great leaping ability, she gets to the basket quickly and she accelerates our transition game because of her ability to get down the floor fast. She is a very good outside shooter and she is another player on our team whose confidence going into her senior year is at an all-time high.” Taylor spent last season learning the Penn State system while sitting out due to NCAA Transfer Rules. While at Maryland, Taylor broke UM’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 assistto-turnover ratio (1.2). In high school at Caravel Academy, Taylor was the 200809 Delaware Gatorade Player of the Year and was a McDonald’s High School All-American. “Dara is our little speed demon,” Washington said. “She’s going to provide us depth in our backcourt. She’s just a dynamic player that makes the game easy for her teammates. She’s an incredible passer and has outstanding court vision. She makes those wild plays that will get our fans excited and get our crowd into the game. She is a terror with her defensive pressure and she will certainly have us playing fast-paced transition basketball while she’s on the floor.” Junior Talia East, sophomore Tori Waldner and senior Marisa Wolfe will provide a solid compliment to the returning starters in the post. East was a spark off of the bench last year as she improved in all facets of the game from her freshman to sophomore seasons. She increased her scoring output by 325% (0.8 to 3.4) and her rebounding average by 300% (1.3 to 5.2) from her rookie campaign to this season. East was third on the team and 20th in the Big Ten in rebounding at a 5.2 per game clip. She also rejected 34 shots on the season, including seven blocks against South Carolina.

“Tori has a very high basketball I.Q. and she is a very skilled post player,” Washington said. “She’s a very good passer, has great touch on her shots and will continue to show her growth on all areas of post play this year.” Wolfe was limited by injury last year, but was a valuable asset during her stints on the court. The senior forward accounted for a career-high 3.6 points per game to go along with 2.4 rebounds. She also connected on 49.2% of her shots from the field, which led the team. “Marisa is one of our captains and provides us stability and leadership both on the court and off the court,” Washington said. “She is a tough, hard-working player and impacts our team in a variety of ways including rebounding, her ability to shoot the ball and being a versatile forward that can do a lot of things. She’s a kid who makes impact plays for us while she’s on the floor.” The Lady Lions add a third McDonald’s High School All-American to the roster in the form of freshman center Candice Agee. Agee, who was the 34th-ranked recruit by ESPN/HoopGurlz out of high school, accounted for 15.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game as a senior. Additionally, she was a member of USA Basketball’s U18 National Team that won the gold medal the FIBA Americas over the summer. Agee averaged 5.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 steals in five games for the USA. “I am really excited to have Candice playing with us this year,” Washington said. “She brings great tools to the table with her size, speed and her ability to be a factor on the offensive end, as well as being shot-blocker on defense. It will be fun and exciting to watch her growth and progression over the course of the season.” The Lady Lions will continue to challenge themselves in the non-conference portion of the schedule, where they will face former National Champions Texas A&M and Connecticut on the road, as well as dates with Top 25 teams Miami in Coral Gables for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and Georgetown in the Bryce Jordan Center. The Big Ten will continue to be solid after sending eight teams to the postseason a year ago, including a conference-record seven teams to the NCAA Tournament. “Our schedule is definitely a challenging one,” Washington said. “We’ve got some pretty big non-conference games, in particular on the road, that will help us once we get to conference play and will certainly help us in the postseason. Being able to go on the road in some hostile environments like UConn and Texas A&M will prepare us for playing on the road in conference play, going into hostile environments in the postseason and being confident we can play our brand of basketball and execute our game plans wherever we go.”

COQUESE WASHINGTON Head Coach * 6th 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. Washington returned the Lady Lions to Big Ten prominence in her fifth season as she guided Penn State to the Big Ten regularseason title with a 13-3 record in conference play. Additionally, the Lady Lions advanced to the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen with wins over UTEP and LSU en route to a 26-7 overall record. The Lady Lions posted back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since 2002-03 and 2003-04. It was also the first Big Ten crown and Sweet Sixteen berth for the Lady Lions since 2003-04. The Lady Lions were ranked throughout the season and finished ninth in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll and 11th in the Associated Press Top 25.

On the recruiting trail, the Lady Lions’ 2012 class earned a Top 20 class from Dan Olson’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. The class includes transfer Dara Taylor, who sat out the 2011-12 season due to NCAA transfer rules, and McDonald’s High School All-American Candice Agee from California. The addition of Taylor, who was a 2009 McDonald’s All-American, and Agee gives the Lady Lions three McDonald’s All-Americans on the roster heading into the 2012-13 campaign, joining 2010 honoree Lucas. Additionally, Agee earned a gold medal with the USA Basketball U18 National Team Trials at the 2012 FIBA Americas Championship in August.

For her efforts in rebuilding the Penn State program, Washington was honored as the Big Ten Coach of the Year and the WBCA Region 6 Coach of the Year, making her a finalist for WBCA National Coach of the Year. The accolades were not just limited to Washington; all five Lady Lion starters earned All-Big Ten recognition, including first team bids for Alex Bentley and Maggie Lucas. Both Bentley and Lucas also garnered honorable mention AllAmerica honors from the WBCA and Associated Press, respectively. Bentley became the 33rd player in school history to reach the 1,000-point plateau and just the 15th junior to reach the milestone. Lucas also joined the 1,000-point club in 2011-12, becoming just the third sophomore in program history to accomplish the feat. Lucas tallied 642 points in her sophomore campaign, joining Kelly Mazzante, Suzie McConnell and Susan Robinson as the only players in school history to reach the 600-point mark in a season.

2012-13 Penn State Lady Lion Yearbook

The Lady Lions returned to the national stage in Washington’s fourth year with a secondplace 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 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. 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 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, 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 the USA Basketball World University Games Trials. 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 all-conference 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 AllState 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.

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. 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). 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.

FRED CHMIEL

Assistant Coach * 3rd 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 is an energetic, experienced teacher, and is a proven winner,” Washington said. “He has a strong rapport with our players which allows him to get their maximum effort on the court. Under his tutelage, our guards corps has become one of the best in the country. As our defensive coordinator, Fred has helped elevate our defensive production every year. He brings an aggressive, intense attitude to our defense that I really like.” Chmiel played a pivotal role in helping backcourt mates Alex Bentley and Maggie Lucas develop into first team All-Big Ten and All-America performers. Bentley garnered first team All-Big Ten honors for the second-straight season and also took home honorable mention WBCA All-America accolades after finishing 11th in the Big Ten in scoring with a 14.1 average. Additionally, she was second in the Big Ten and in the Top 20 nationally in steals, averaging 3.0 per game, en route to Big Ten All-Defensive team accolades. Bentley was also fourth in the conference in assists (4.7) and seventh in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4).

Lucas earned first team All-Big Ten and honorable mention Associated Press All-America honors as she transformed her game to become more of a threat off of the dribble to compliment her long-range accuracy. She finished third in the conference in scoring at a 19.5 per game clip and was just the fourth different Lady Lion to score more than 600 points in a season with 642 tallies on the year. Lucas was also Top 10 in the league in free throw percentage (.886 – 3rd), three-point field goal percentage (.410 - 3rd) and three-pointers made (2.5 - 2nd). The Narberth, Pa. native is just the third sophomore in school history to reach 1,000 points. Chmiel also tutored Zhaque Gray, who took home AllBig Ten honorable mention honors for the first time in her career in 2011-12. She averaged a career-best 10.6 points per game and connected on 48 three-pointers with Chmiel’s guidance. In his first season, Chmiel had a tremendous impact on Gray, who 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. Chmiel also mentored Bentley, who 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. Additionally, Chmiel worked closely with 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year Lucas. Lucas, who was also the Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year, broke the Penn 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 threepoint field goals per game (3.2).

2012-13 Penn State Lady Lion Yearbook


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. 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 All-Mountain 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 (2).

MAREN WALSETH

Assistant Coach * 6th Season Penn State ’02

Walseth is in her sixth 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,” Washington said. “Each year our post play gets better and its due to Maren’s exceptional teaching skills. She knows how to help each and every post player reach their potential on the court. Maren has also had a powerful impact on our recruiting efforts. Her passion for Lady Lion basketball shows itself every day and that enthusiasm rubs off on everyone who comes in contact with our program.”

Under Walseth’s tutelage, post players Nikki Greene and Mia Nickson continued to flourish in 2011-12. Greene took home All-Big Ten honorable mention honors for the second consecutive season after averaging 9.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. She ranked in the Top 10 in the Big Ten in rebounding (4th), field goal percentage (7th- .472) and blocked shots (5th – 1.4).

Walseth also helped Talia East develop into a solid contributor off of the bench for the Lady Lions. With Walseth’s guidance, East increased her scoring average from 0.8 points per game as a freshman to 3.4 points per outing as a sophomore. Additionally, East pulled in 5.2 rebounds per game, which far surpassed her freshman average of 1.3 rebounds. Walseth’s influence on 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. With Walseth’s guidance, Nickson’s development was astounding in her first year in the blue & white 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 finished second in the league in field goal percentage with a .521 effort and was third in offensive rebounds (3.2).

Nickson fought through a series of injuries and still managed to claim All-Big Ten honorable mention honors as she averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Additionally, she was named to the NCAA Tournament Kingston All-Region team after tallying 19 points, five rebounds and two steals against eventual National Semifinalist Connecticut. In Big Ten play, Nickson was eighth in rebounding (7.5) and 10th in field goal percentage (.455).

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.

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 2012-13 Penn State Lady Lion Yearbook

BIG TEN CHAMPIONS: The Lady Lions clinched the Big Ten regular-season title outright for the first time since 2004 with a 74-51 win over Minnesota Feb. 26. It was the sixth overall regular-season crown for the Lady Lions and fourth outright (2000, 2003, 2004). Penn State served as the top seed in the Big Ten Tournament for the first time since 2004 and the fifth time in program history (1995, 2000, 2003, 2004). PSU 11TH IN AP POLL: The Lady Lions finished 11th in the final Associated Press Top 25 of the season. Penn State finished ranked in the AP Top 25 for the first time since finishing 22nd in the 2005 final AP poll.

Additionally, Penn State made its first appearance in the preseason AP poll since the 2003-04 campaign. LIONS RANKED 12TH IN COACHES POLL: The Lady Lions were 12th in the final regular-season ESPN/USA Today coaches poll. The ranking equaled Penn State’s best of the season and is the highest ranking in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll for the Lady Lions since they were seventh in the final 2004 poll. Additionally, Penn State appeared in the preseason coaches’ poll for the first time since starting the 2003-04 campaign eighth.

Review

ALEX WBCA ALL-AMERICAN: Junior guard Alex Bentley was named to the 2012 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Division I Coaches’ All-America Honorable Mention Team. She is the first Lady Lion to garner WBCA All-America honors since Kelly Mazzante was a first team selection in 2004. Bentley is the sixth different Penn State player to earn WBCA All-American accolades, joining Suzie McConnell, Susan Robinson, Tina Nicholson, Angie Potthoff, Helen Darling and Kelly Mazzante. Those six Lady Lions have combined for 10 total WBCA AllAmerica honors in program history.

ROAD WARRIORS: The Lady Lions picked up their 11th road win of the season with a 90-80 win over fifth-seeded LSU in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The 11 road victories are the most by a Penn State team since the 1993-94 team also won 11 contests away from Happy Valley.

LUCAS EARNS AP ALL-AMERICA HONORS: Sophomore guard Maggie Lucas capped off an outstanding sophomore campaign by taking home Associated Press (AP) All-America honorable mention accolades. She is the first Lady Lion to garner AP honors since Tyra Grant was also an honorable mention selection in 2010. She is the 15th Lady Lion to earn AP All-America honors since the award began in 1995. Lucas is the fourth Penn State sophomore to claim AP accolades, joining Angie Potthoff (1995 – honorable mention), Kelly Mazzante (2002 – 2nd team) and Tanisha Wright (2003 – honorable mention).

MAGGIE MAKES FT MARK: Sophomore guard Maggie Lucas’ 11-for-11 effort from the free throw line in the NCAA Tournament Second Round win over LSU put her in the record books. Lucas’ perfect 100% mark from the charity stripe ties the record for percentage in an NCAA Tournament game. Additionally, Lucas broke the Penn State record for free throws made in an NCAA Tournament game, surpassing the mark of 10 held by Helen Holloway vs. Kansas (3/19/94) and Suzie McConnell vs. La Salle (3/16/88).

COQUESE WBCA REGIONAL COY: Head coach Coquese Washington was selected as the 2012 Russell Athletic/WBCA Region 6 Coach of the Year. Washington was one of eight finalists for the 2012 Russell Athletic/WBCA National Coach of the Year. Washington is the first Lady Lion coach to earn Regional Coach of the Year honors since Rene Portland won the WBCA National Coach of the Year award in 2004. FOURTH TO 600: Guard Maggie Lucas became the fourth different Lady Lion to score more than 600 points in a season with 642 tallies in her sophomore season. It is the sixth time in program history a player has surpassed the 600-point mark in a season. Lucas joins Kelly Mazzante (three times; 872, 200102; 837, 2002-03; 681, 2003-04), Suzie McConnell (682, 1987-88) and Susan Robinson (633, 1989-90) as the only players in program history to accomplish the feat.

BENTLEY ON SEASON THEFTS CHART: Junior guard Alex Bentley has established herself as one of the top defenders in the Big Ten, nabbing 98 steals along the way. The 98 steals are tied for eighth on Penn State’s single-season thefts list.

BENTLEY NABS 200TH STEAL: With three steals in the win over Minnesota Feb. 26, junior guard Alex Bentley became the 13th player in school history to record 200 steals. She is currently 12th on Penn State’s career steals chart with 216 career thefts. BACK-TO-BACK 25-WIN SEASONS: With the March 18 win over UTEP, the Lady Lions claimed their second-straight 25-win season for the first time since the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons. Penn State was 25-10 a year ago and finished 2011-12 with a 26-7 this season. Overall, the Lady Lions have 12 25-win campaigns overall. Penn State’s 26 wins are the most since the 2004 squad went 28-6. GREENE INTO BLOCKS TOP 5: Junior center Nikki Greene is in fifth place on the Penn State career blocks list with 176 rejections. With a trio of rejections against UTEP in the NCAA First Round, Greene broke a tie with Amanda Brown (2004-07) for fifth slot.

2011-12 Season

BENTLEY SPRINTS UP SCORING LIST: With eight points against Connecticut in the NCAA Tournament, junior guard Alex Bentley moved into 15th place on Penn State’s career scoring list. Bentley enters her final season in the Blue & White with 1,335 career points.

BIG TEN WINS: The Lady Lions picked up their 13th Big Ten win of the season against the Gophers in the regular-season finale. The 13 conference victories are the most by a Penn State team since the 2004-05 squad went 13-3 in conference play. WASHINGTON NAMED COACH OF THE YEAR: After leading the Lady Lions to their first Big Ten regular-season title since 2004, Coquese Washington was selected as the Big Ten Coach of the Year by both the coaches and the media. Washington joins four-time winner Rene Portland (1994, 2000, 2003, 2004) on the list of Penn State mentors to win top conference coaching honors. The Lady Lions started conference play 1-2, but rallied to win 12 of their next 13 games to claim the crown. DUO NAMED TO FIRST TEAM: Junior guard Alex Bentley and sophomore guard Maggie Lucas were both named to the All-Big Ten first team after stellar seasons. A first team choice last season, Bentley becomes the ninth different Lady Lion to earn first team accolades twice, while Lucas is the 12th different Penn State player to earn top all-conference honors. The Lady Lions have 26 All-Big Ten first team selections, the most of any team in the Big Ten since joining the conference in 1992-93. Bentley was also named to the Big Ten All-Defensive team. MORE BIG TEN HONORS: Junior center Nikki Greene earned third team All-Big Ten honors from the media and an honorable mention nod from the coaches. It is the second time that Greene has earned All-Big Ten honors after an honorable mention appearance a year ago. Additionally, senior guard Zhaque Gray and junior forward Mia Nickson were named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten. It is the first all-conference honors for the pair.

Notable • The Lady Lions used a 13-0 run, including the final six tallies coming from Maggie Lucas, over the final 5:22 to earn the come-from-behind win. • Talia East rejected a career-high seven shots, which ties her for the third-highest single-game total in school history. • PSU was held without a three-point field goal for the first time since Jan. 7, 2007 (vs. Michigan).

Notable • The Lady Lions led wire-to-wire, but had to fend off a late Iowa State charge with a 9-4 run to end the game. • Nikki Greene became the 27h member of the 500-rebound club with 501 career boards. • PSU’s 32 fouls are the most since Penn State committed 30 fouls against UCSB Nov. 20, 2001. • The win was the 70th of head coach Coquese Washington’s career.

THE BIG TEN CONFERENCE

BIG TEN CONFERENCE Formed more than 116 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 conferences 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. 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.

TELEVISION EXPOSURE The Big Ten’s media agreements with CBS Sports, ABC/ESPN, FOX and the Big Ten Network (BTN) provide the conference with its greatest television exposure ever. Nearly 1,000 Big Ten events are produced and distributed nationally on an annual basis. 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 sixth year of operation. BTN is in 51 million homes in the United States and Canada, through agreements with more than 300 cable, satellite and telco providers, and is available internationally in 20 countries. ATTENDANCE Big Ten fans are some of the nation’s most supportive, with more than 10 million patrons attending conference home contests during the 2011-12 seasons for football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball alone.

Honoring Legends. Building Leaders.

Big Ten schools have produced more than 1,400 Academic All-Americans, more than any other conference, including 36 in the last academic year. 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 2012. The Big Ten ranks first with 30 top-25 programs in the fields of law, medical (research and primary care), business, engineering and education.

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 the Big Ten’s “Honoring Legends. Building Leaders.” campaign links directly to the Big Ten mission.

SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS During the 2011-12 season, the Big Ten claimed seven team national championships, including titles for Illinois men’s gymnastics, Minnesota women’s ice hockey, Northwestern women’s lacrosse, Ohio State fencing and synchronized swimming, Penn State wrestling and Wisconsin men’s cross country.

Legends

A respectful acknowledgement of the countless Olympians, AllAmericans and coaching icons that have been a part of Big Ten athletics for more than 116 years.

The Big Ten led all conferences with national titles in 12 different NCAAsponsored championships from 2002-03 to 2011-12. Over that time period, the Big Ten produced championships in cross country, fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, volleyball and wrestling. STUDENT-ATHLETE OPPORTUNITIES Big Ten universities provide over $136 million in direct financial aid to nearly 10,000 student-athletes, more than any conference. The Big Ten sponsors 25 official conference sports, 12 for men and 13 for women. The 26th conference sport, men’s ice hockey, will begin in 2013.

Leaders

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.

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.

Committed to Women’s Sports: No other network devotes as much to women’s sports as BTN. Over five years BTN has produced nearly 1,500 women’s sporting events, in the sports of basketball, ice hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field and volleyball. This past academic year, BTN produced over 500 women’s events.

Where to find us: BTN is currently available to more than 90 million homes in the United States and Canada. Every one of BTN’s 650+ events is televised to a national audience. BTN currently has agreements with more than 300 affiliates, including AT&T U-Verse, Atlantic Broadband, Cablevision, Charter, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV, DISH, Mediacom, Rogers (Canada), Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct (Canada), Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS.

Student U: Since the network launched, BTN has provided hundreds of students an opportunity to participate in live sports production and internships. In 2009, BTN launched Student U, in which Big Ten students on each campus produce and announce events, offering them a unique opportunity to gain real-world experience and for the network to train the production stars of tomorrow. The events are streamed live, and many then air on delay on BTN, providing unprecedented exposure for the conference’s Olympic sports programs.

BTN2Go: BTN2Go is a 24/7 simulcast of BTN that delivers live programming to existing BTN subscribers via tablets, smartphones, PCs and Android devices as well as on-demand access to BTN’s deep archive of games and original programming and Extra Football Game Channels. BTN2Go is also available to Big Ten fans living abroad with BTN2Go International, which is available to anyone with internet service. BTN Programming: BTN is on the air 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. In 2011-12 BTN produced over 400 hours of original programming and studio shows. The network nationally televises more than 650 events and streams hundreds of live events each year. Each year’s schedule includes 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.

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.
