2013 Missouri State Season Outlook

Bears Set Sights on Wide Open Missouri Valley Conference To say that the 2013 Missouri State volleyball Bears are experienced would be an understatement. The numbers bearing that out are impressive... • Seven players on the 17-man roster have won all-conference honors during their careers, coming from the Missouri Valley, Big East and Atlantic 10 conferences. • The roster features seven seniors, including three fifth-year players. • Add in the four juniors and the Bears boast 11 upperclassmen. • Two players already own undergraduate degrees. • The average age of the team on opening day: 20.5 years old. • Missouri State players have combined for 5,303 kills, 4,383 digs and 1,337 blocks at the Division I level during their careers. That said, it’s no wonder the expectation level both inside and outside the program is high entering 2013, with the goal of an eighth NCAA Tournament appearance since 2003 clearly in the sights of the Bears. “Our goals every year are to compete for a conference championship, a spot in the NCAA Tournament and to win 20-plus matches,” Melissa Stokes said entering her 18th season as head coach. “This year’s team has a goal of not just making the NCAA Tournament but advancing. We’re solid in every position, and when you have starters on the sidelines, that is you don’t drop off when bringing player in from the bench, you have a chance to be very good.”

While the Bears are deep at every position, Carly Thomas (Swansea, Ill.) headlines the talented senior class as a preseason selection to earn first-team all-Valley honors for a third consecutive season. Thomas begins her fourth season piloting Missouri State’s offense with a wealth of experience and a cabinet full of awards. She ranks second in school history with 3,398 career assists, has five MVC Player of the Week and one CVU.com National Player of the Week honor to her credit, while appearing in all 93 MSU matches since setting foot on campus. In addition to helping the Bears rank in the top 35 nationally in kills per set the last two seasons, Thomas brings 353 career kills,

Behind Thomas at setter are a pair of talented players with the skills to run the Bears’ offense. Kinsey McCarter (Springfield, Mo.) saw significant playing time all over the court last season, filling in as injuries plagued the Bears and performing at all spots on the floor. She totaled 47 kills, 59 assists, 87 digs, 17 blocks and six aces in 53 sets, including a double-double with 11 kills, 11 digs to go with seven blocks as Missouri State dispatched UNI at home. A physical presence standing 6-foot-2, McCarter added eight kills and 10 digs against 23rd-ranked Creighton. MaryJo Kolze (Tempe, Ariz.) rounds out the Bears’ setters.

Doolittle hit .284 as a junior with career bests of 249 kills and 107 blocks. Kayln Vlasin (Neosho, Mo.) showed flashes of her potential last season and looks to make a bigger impact in 2013. The sophomore had 74 kills and 42 blocks as a redshirt freshman while starting 12 matches. Throw in Simone House (Oshkosh, Wis.) and Hannah Steinbeck (Hermann, Mo.), who each made great strides as redshirts in 2012, and the Bears have plenty of options on the front row.

Dynamic Defense

The Bears have one member of each class in the defensive rotation, beginning with senior Ashley Mason (Granby, Mo.). Mason served as the Bears’ libero each of the last two seasons and ranks fourth in MSU history with a 3.77 career digs per set average. She also enters her final year ranked 12th at MSU with 1,153 total digs, and owns the Nos. 6 and 7 single-season totals in that category. Backing up Mason is an experienced junior in Maddy Hogan (Smithton, Ill.), who scooped 260 digs a year ago in 114 sets, including a career-high 22 in the Bears’ victory against UNI. Elise Munroe (Springfield, Mo.) is MSU’s third local product and possesses the athleticism to both hit and play defense.

in Dayton, Ohio, against a trio of 20-match winners from last season in Northeastern, Tulsa and Dayton. Those three finished 2012 with a combined record of 73-22, with Tulsa and Dayton advancing to the NCAA Tournament. The Bears visit Durham, N.H., a week later to face St. John’s, Brown, and host New Hampshire, before the annual Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational takes place Sept. 13-14 at Hammons Student Center. MSU will welcome Middle Tennessee, Alabama A&M and Oklahoma to Springfield for the event. Missouri State also has four single-match dates in the non-conference, all against 20-match winners from last season. MSU will visit Northern Illinois (Sept. 2) and Colorado State (Sept. 11), and host Kansas State (Sept. 22) and Southeast Missouri State (Oct. 29). CSU and KSU each qualified for last season’s NCAATournament. Missouri Valley Conference play begins Sept. 19 at Wichita State, and the Bears will play a full 18-match home-andhome league schedule that ends Nov. 22 at home against WSU. Loyola University Chicago replaces Creighton in the league in 2013. The MVC Championship takes place Nov. 28-30 in Wichita, Kan. In total, MSU’s 2013 opponents went 375-307 (.550) a season ago, with seven of the 22 teams boasting an RPI of 49 or better and nine finishing amongst the top 100. The Bears will play 13 total matches against those top-100 teams and 19 matches against schools with a winning record last season.

The Schedule

Another challenging schedule awaits the Bears in 2013, though it follows a similar pattern to those of the past several years that have led to postseason success for Missouri State. The team will play nine matches against seven teams that played in the NCAA Tournament last season, including five on the non-conference schedule. “This schedule is difficult because we play four of our first five weekends on the road, and play some really good teams in the process,” Stokes added. “September will be a tough month, but this team is full of focused veterans who can handle that challenge.” Kaitlin Jaeger collected second-team all-MVC honors Missouri State begins the season 2013 Guide

Head Coach Melissa Stokes 18th year San Diego State (1991)

Now entering her 18th season as head coach at Missouri State, Melissa Stokes has posted a 373-179 record (a .676 winning percentage) and is the Missouri Valley Conference’s all-time winningest coach in league matches with 218 MVC victories. Stokes set the MVC wins record at Bradley on Sept. 30, 2011, to kick off an historic two-week stretch that included her 200th MVC win on Oct. 14 and her 350th overall victory the next night. Stokes has taken Missouri State to seven NCAA Tournaments during her tenure, all in the last 10 seasons, and the Bears have finished at least second in either the Missouri Valley Conference regular season or tournament in 10 of the last 12 seasons. Missouri State’s 13 consecutive 20-win seasons from 1999-2011 ranked as the seventh longest active streak in NCAA Division I when it came to an end. Stokes also ranks third all-time in wins among MVC coaches. The 2011 Bears went 22-9 and placed second in the MVC with a 15-3 league mark to earn an NCAA at-large selection. Missouri State lost at Pepperdine in the first round, and finished the season 26th nationally in kills per set while also recording more digs than the opposition in all but two matches. Senior Calli Norman finished her career as the third player in MVC history to earn first-team all-MVC recognition four times, while Carly Thomas led the MVC in assists as an AVCA all-Region choice.

Additionally, all 16 MSU athletic programs met the NCAA’s APR requirements this past spring, while a record 157 student-athletes posted grade-point averages of 3.25 or better over the last year. Prior to his arrival in Springfield, Moats spent four years as associate athletics director for national marketing at Louisville. In that capacity, he coordinated the Cardinals’ efforts in national awareness, marketing, branding and group ticket sales. He also worked closely with Nelligan, which manages the exclusive marketing rights for Cardinal Athletics.

Missouri Valley Conference The Missouri Valley Conference has demonstrated throughout history that it finds the strength, resources, competitive determination and leadership to rise to even higher levels when confronted with change or significant challenges. In 2012-13, the winds of change that have dramatically affected Division I conference realignment in recent years finally touched The Valley. For the first time since 1996, the MVC will experience the addition and departure of a member institution. The Valley formally welcomed Loyola University Chicago into the membership on July 1, 2013. Loyola is the 33rd institution to enter the Missouri Valley Conference and the first-ever member university from the Chicago metropolitan area. In March 2013, Creighton University, an MVC member for nearly 60 years, had announced its departure from the MVC for the newly configured Big East Conference. If the Missouri Valley Conference has been anything over the past 106 seasons of athletic competition, it has been resilient. The Valley – which will experience its 107th season of athletics competition in 2013-14 -- has weathered many kinds of storms, including changes in its membership. In 1928, six institutions (Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Missouri and Oklahoma) left the league to form the Big Six Conference. Another major exodus from the MVC took place in the 1970s when four institutions departed over a three-year period. Each time there has been a setback or a major change in membership, the Conference has retooled and reinvented itself. The nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference continues to be a leader in college athletics and is one of the nation’s most progressive conferences. League members have worked together to focus on common goals and objectives, putting a high value on league harmony while continuing to invest in athletic programs to compete at the highest level. Bradley   The Valley brand remains very strong, both regionally and nationally, and Peoria, Illinois the great athletic tradition of The Valley remains a compelling force in recruiting student-athletes and in marketing all the MVC programs. Creighton Men’s basketball continues to be the engine that drives Valley athletic Omaha, Nebraska programs. In 2013, Wichita State reached the Final Four, marking the first time since 1979 (Indiana State) that an MVC team had advanced that far (a Drake league member has now been to the Final Four 17 times.) The league has had Des Moines, Iowa four different Sweet 16 teams since 2006, and The Valley is the only non-BCS league with more than two different Sweet 16 teams in that span. Wichita Evansville State (4) and Creighton (21) ended the season ranked in the USA Today Evansville, Indiana Coaches poll, marking the third time in the past eight seasons that two league members achieved a Top-25 ranking in a season-ending poll. Six MVC schools Illinois State represented the league in post-season play, and the league combined for a Normal, Illinois record-setting 13 post-season victories in 2013. While the success of men’s basketball has received the greatest attention, Indiana State the overall performance of league teams in virtually every sport continues to Terre Haute, Indiana raise the national profile of the conference. In volleyball, Creighton, UNI and Wichita State represented the league Missouri State in the NCAA Tournament. It marked the fifth time in league history that three Springfield, Missouri volleyball teams were invited to the Dance (also in 2011, 2010, 2008 and 2007). The Valley earned three first-round NCAA Volleyball Tournament wins UNI for the first time in MVC history, while Wichita State advanced to its first-ever Cedar Falls, Iowa Sweet 16 after knocking off Arkansas and Kansas in its historic run. Meanwhile, the success of The Valley television package is one of the Southern Illinois great stories in the league. The MVC Television Network has blossomed into Carbondale, Illinois a revenue-generating vehicle and The Valley’s most visible marketing tool. Also, The Valley continues to be proactive in upgrading the production and Wichita State marketing of both institutionally-produced and conference-produced webcasts. Wichita, Kansas In 2010, The Valley took a major step toward ensuring current revenues in television media and tournament sponsorship sales would be guaranteed in future years when it announced a 10-year partnership with Learfield Sports. The Jefferson City, Missouri-based company now has the exclusive sales and marketing rights to MVC assets that include championships and television advertising.   During the tenure of Doug Elgin, The Valley’s ninth and longest-tenured commissioner, The Valley has been aggressive in hosting NCAA events in St. Louis. From 1998-2010, the MVC served as host for a staggering nine NCAA tournament events in that 13year period, which has made St. Louis one of the most frequent stops on the NCAA Tournament trail. The Valley hosted Women’s Final Fours in 2001 and 2009 and the Men’s Final Four in 2005. This year, The Valley will host an NCAA second- and third-round men’s basketball event at Scottrade Center in St. Louis. Last year, the league hosted an NCAA second- and third-round men’s basketball event in Kansas City and previously assisted with preliminary round men’s events in both 2008 and 2012 in Omaha.   The seeds for the creation of the conference were planted by eight administrators representing five institutions, who met at the Midland Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1907. The five schools which formed the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association were Washington University of St. Louis, and the state universities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Two months after the initial meeting, two more schools -- Drake University and Iowa State College -- were admitted. In the fall of 1907, basketball became the first competitive sport. Today, the Missouri Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country and track & field (indoor and outdoor), men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. League members include Bradley, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Loyola Chicago, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Central Arkansas and Southern Illinois Edwardsville are affiliate members in men’s soccer, and Dallas Baptist is an affiliate member for baseball.

John Q. Hammons Student Center   The Missouri State Bear volleyball team plays its home matches in spacious John Q. Hammons Student Center, the home of Missouri State volleyball since the start of the 1976-77 school year.   The largest indoor facility in southwest Missouri, Hammons has a main arena seating capacity of 8,846. There are 4,646 permanent seats and folding bleacher units on the north and south ends each seat 2,100 fans.   Hammons Student Center was constructed at a cost of $5.5 million and was named for Springfield business executive and former Missouri State student John Q. Hammons, who donated a gift of one million dollars to the project.   The facility grew out of a lengthy project begun by Missouri State students in the early 1970s, with actual construction beginning in January of 1975. The structure, completed in the late summer of 1976, is located on the northwest edge of the Missouri State campus. The land for the building was made available to the University in 1972 by the Springfield Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority.   An additional $326,000 of the total cost came in a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the facility’s eight-lane swimming pool. Parking is located south of the building.   The court in the main arena, two more full-size courts in the east and west gyms under the side seats, and two smaller courts under the bleacher units on the north and south ends are marked for basketball, volleyball and tennis. In 1985, Missouri State acquired a hardwood floor, which is laid over the permanent floor for volleyball and basketball competition.   The office space in women’s athletics was doubled in the fall of 1993, and the volleyball locker room was remodeled following the 2005 season, thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. Several others

have made significant gifts to benefit the locker room projects, including Jim and Joan Cologna.   The Missouri State volleyball and softball teams had shared a locker room since the opening of Hammons Student Center in 1976 and each now has its own space with the completion of the two projects. The new locker rooms each include 20 wooden lockers, a team meeting area, a trophy case, sinks, toilets and individual showers.   The Colognas are longtime supporters of Missouri State volleyball and pledged a significant gift toward the volleyball locker room. The trophy case is named in their honor. Recent improvements in the main arena of Hammons Student Center include a new sound system, a scoreboard with an electronic message center and improved lighting.   The swimming pool is equipped for use at either 25 yards or 25 meters and has both one and three-meter diving boards. Hammons Student Center also houses a rifle range, a training room and six racquetball courts.   Hammons contains athletic and building administration offices as well as offices for many coaches, a lounge area, large varsity locker rooms and locker rooms for visiting teams and recreational use.   Performers who have made appearances in Hammons include Bob Hope, Anne Murray, Huey Lewis and the News, Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, Barbara Mandrell, Barry Manilow, Genesis, Bill Cosby, Dolly Parton, the Harlem Globetrotters, George Carlin, Garth Brooks, John McEnroe, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Amy Grant, Alabama, James Taylor, 98 Degrees and the Dixie Chicks. There have also been appearances in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, in 1988 by Vice President George Bush and in 2002 by President George W. Bush.

Completed in 1976 at a cost of $5.5 million, Hammons Student Center is home to Bears volleyball and seats nearly 9,000 fans.

The lounge area and trophy case in the MSU volleyball locker room, which was remodeled in 2005 thanks to lead gifts by Chip McGeehan of Marshfield. The trophy case is named in honor of Jim and Joan Cologna for their gift benefitting the locker room project.

The Jim D. Morris Family Strength and Conditioning Center sits adjacent to the Turner Family Practice Court gives the Bears a dedicated cardiovascular and weight facility inside Hammons Student Center.

Wooden lockers in the volleyball locker room were introduced after the remodel in 2005. ttt

The Turner Family Practice Court was completed in 2006, helping ease the practice schedule of the volleyball Bears and both basketball programs. The east gym underwent extensive renovations, including the installation of new lighting, wall covering, and the addition of the hardwood floor that was in use in HSC’s main arena from 1985 until February 2006. uuu

A year ago, Texas beat Michigan in the semifinals and Oregon in the finals to claim the national title. MISSOURI STATE IN THE NCAA: The Bears have appeared in the NCAA Tournament 10 times. The Bears earned an at-large berth in 1982 and lost in four games at Texas in the first round. In 1990, Missouri State won the Gateway automatic bid and fell in three games at Hawaii. In 1993, the Bears collected the MVC automatic berth and lost in three games to Illinois. In 2003, the Bears returned to the Tournament but lost in four to Arkansas at Manhattan, Kan.

2012 Missouri State Season Review

Bears Continue Winning Ways Missouri State finishes above .500 for 14th consecutive season While Missouri State didn’t end the 2012 season in its usual spot - the NCAA Tournament - a late-season charge ensured the program a 14th consecutive winning season as the Bears finished the campaign 16-15 overall and 10-8 in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Slow Out

of the

Gate

The Bears faced a non-conference schedule loaded with high-RPI and NCAA clubs from 2011, especially the season-opening Oklahoma Nike Invitational with its field of three top-40 teams. Missouri State opened the year with a loss to Oklahoma, splitting the first two sets before falling 3-1, and suffered a pair of setbacks the next day at the hands of Tulsa (3-0) and Western Michigan (3-1). The Bears returned home the next week for the first of two consecutive home tournaments to kick off a busy season at Hammons Student Center that included a total of 33 matches. MSU earned its first win of the season Aug. 30 with a 3-2 victory over Oral Roberts, with Amber Doolittle and Christine McCartney sharing high honors with 18 kills apiece. Eleventh-ranked Dayton handed the Bears a 3-0 loss the next day, but the home team rebounded Sept. 1 to earn wins over Arkansas-Little Rock (3-1) and Austin Peay (3-0) to place second in the University Plaza Invitational. Junior setter Carly Thomas posted 59 assists and 24 digs versus

The Bears started that event with sweeps of UConn and New Orleans before falling to a skilled Northern Illinois team in the fiveset championship match, falling 15-13 in the final period despite 16 kills and a career-high 24 digs from McCartney.

Bears Post 14th Consecutive Winning Record in MVC

She also moved to fourth with a career average of 3.77 digs per set. McCartney’s strong offensive season held her spot in 10th place with a career average of 2.92 kills per set.

Bears Well-Represented on Awards Lists

Bears Visit Nicaragua

Missouri State’s transition to 2013 included a May trip to Nicaragua, where the players experienced international competition, tourism and community service in the Central American country.

Missouri State Triple-20 Club (20 Kills-Assists-Digs in a Match)   Only three Bear volleyball players have accomplished the triple-20 of 20 or more kills, assists and digs in a match. Missouri State has not had a triple-20 since 1989, mainly because in recent years the Bears have used a 5-1 offense in which the setter does not hit as much as in a 6-2 (twosetter) offense, used more frequently by Missouri State in the 1980s.   Two players – Ruch and Bingham – each posted triple20s against Arkansas State on October 7, 1989, but no Bear foe has ever achieved the rare feat. The Missouri State triple-20 club, with kill, assist and dig totals: Kathy Crotty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24-41-25   9/26/86 vs. Mississippi Kathy Crotty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31-35-22   11/22/86 vs. UNI Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22-35-20   9/23/88 vs. Ohio State Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 21-35-29   10/7/89 vs. Arkansas State Melinda Bingham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 21-35-29   10/7/89 vs. Arkansas State Susan Ruch. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 25-30-30   11/18/89 vs. UNI

The Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational has been played since 1985 with no tournaments in 1993, 1995 & 1996.

Missouri State Fall Invitational Until recent years, the Bears hosted a pair of in-season tournaments – the September Classic (later named the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational) and the Autumn Classic (later named the Missouri State Fall Invitational). From 1993 to 1996, Missouri State had just one in-season tournament - the 1994 September Classic. But the Bears hosted the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in 1993,1996, 2003 and 2007 and hosted the Fall Invitational again in 1997 and 2002.
