BISON PHILOSOPHY RECRUITING

Character Counts. When we recruit student-athletes, there’s no doubt we look for athle�cally skilled players. Once we iden�fy those players we begin our homework and ascertain what type of person they are, taking into considera�on both academic and athle�c goals/aspira�ons. A considerable factor that we ask is how do they perform in the classroom. Do they value their educa�on? From there, we start to cul�vate a rela�onship that allows us to get to know them and to share knowledge and insight about our program and NDSU tradi�on. We want the perfect fit for both the student-athlete and our program. It is cri�cal for both the prospec�ve student-athlete and our program to feel a connec�on to NDSU because our experiences will be shared and what we are “shoo�ng” for with regards to results must be unified. Those results are defined as SUCCESS in both the classroom and on the court.

EXPECTATIONS/GOALS (POTENTIAL)

Our role as coaches is to provide an environment in which all student-athletes that go through our program are provided the tools to reach their poten�al not only as a basketball player but as an individual. It is our program’s expecta�on that each player will graduate from NDSU and go on to be a successful career woman. It is our program’s expecta�on that each player will gain the importance of offseason and in season prepara�on. They will be accountable to increase their capabili�es through knowledge, experiences, and commitment which in return will increase their successes. It is our expecta�on that they leave NDSU understanding that prepara�on breeds success!

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

6

Expect Great. Keep it Simple. We will expect to communicate, expect to learn, expect to trust, and expect to be accountable. As a studentathlete and coach we will be dedicated to what we want, we will have a vision to go catch, we will remain focused on that vision, and will be determined to let no stand in our way. “DO IT”! Those involved with our program will have it engrained into their repertoire that the strength of the Herd is the Bison and the strength of the Bison is the Herd. It is our responsibility to create a learning environment in which all student-athletes can reach their poten�al. Our players will learn the concepts and principles of the mo�on and be allowed to read and react to how they are defended. An emphasis on comprehension and transla�ng knowledge into ac�on onto the court is vital for our athletes. They will be allowed the freedom to play and be successful within the founda�on of our offense. Our defensive philosophy is to operate out of our base defense. Our players will learn the value of game prepara�on, always knowing that no ma�er what comes at us on the floor we will have our base defense to fall back on when needed. We will be commi�ed to prepara�on, prepared to succeed, and trust our training in all that we do.

A native of Apple Valley, Minn., Prichard was a four-year letterwinner and two-year starter for Princeton University from 2004-08. She was team captain as a senior and tied the school’s career record for games played (112). Prichard graduated with her bachelors degree in psychology in June.

Head coach Carolyn DeHoff and the North Dakota State University women's basketball team looks to build on the momentum from the 2008-09 season. DeHoff and the Bison look forward to more of a normal pace this year a�er what transpired last season and take advantage of the experience gained and the eager incoming freshmen class. NDSU was down to eight players at season's end due to injuries, but claimed the third seed in The Summit League postseason tournament and reached the semifinals. This year the Bison have nearly doubled the squad size. "Depth will create an ability for us to add to our offensive and defensive mindset. We would like to be able to a�ack earlier on both ends," said DeHoff, who enters her second season at North Dakota State. "With that being said, our founda�on from last year’s success had much to do with our belief in the defensive principles. If we can con�nue to grow in that area the offensive end will benefit. We’ll be able to create some easy baskets." North Dakota State has nine returning players from last season's 16-13 team including two players -guards Inger Hodgson and Ka�e Birkel -- who averaged over 33 minutes per game in 29 starts. "Our top returning players include Ka�e Birkel, Ashley Samuelson, and Inger Hodgson," said DeHoff. "Both Birkel and Samuelson came on strong with gutsy play during the Summit League tournament." Hodgson, a 5-foot-9 senior from Barneveld, Wis., earned all-league honors a�er averaging 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game. She ranked among the NCAA leaders in

three-point field goals made (2.0 avg/g), and was listed in the top 10 in five different Summit League categories. She also earned league player of the week honors during the season. "Hodgson was a consistent compe�tor on the hardwood throughout the season. For us, top players are defined by their willingness to compete when you’re up by 2 or down by 15," said DeHoff.

"With the health of Jill Zaruba and Abby Plucker, our leading scorer and rebounder before her injury, along with junior guard Whitney Trecker, the core of the 2009-2010 squad has all the components to accomplish great things this season." Birkel, a 5-8 guard from Lincoln, Neb., turned in more than a typical performance star�ng at point guard -- a posi�on she never played in high school -- during the 2008-09 season.


BISON PREVIEW who started in 24 of 25 games played last season. Zaruba missed the final four games due to injury. She averaged 8.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Zaurba led the Bison and ranked fourth in free throw shoo�ng (85.7%). She also hit 45.2 percent from the field. With the addi�on of 6-5 freshman Janae Burich (Roseville, Minn./Roseville H.S.), who has impressed the coaching

staff during the preseason, NDSU has the necessary things in order to cushion the gradua�on of four-year fixture Jerri Penley inside. Penley was one of the Summit League's premier shot blockers and also hit 57.2 percent from the field in 2009. A pair of of the early season losses to injury last year were 5-11 redshirt sophomore Abby Plucker (Parker, S.D.) and 6-1 redshirt junior Megan Shea

(Plymouth, Minn.). Plucker was leading the Bison in scoring (14.2 ppg) and rebounding (6.1 rpg), and had earned all-tournament honors at LoyolaMarymount before a shoulder injury forced her to the sidelines nine games into the season. Shea sat out last year due to complica�ons to knee surgery. Both are excited to get back on the court again when the season begins in earnest Nov. 13 at Northern Iowa. "Our schedule is definitely compe��ve this season. It starts right out of the gates on the road at the University of Northern Iowa and Big East member DePaul, and con�nues through the start of our league in January," said DeHoff. "Our league did graduate a few players but collec�vely have a large number of veteran players returning, which means the games are going to provide for some entertaining a�ernoons and evenings." DeHoff and the coaching staff are working hard to blend the veterans and newcomers together in all phases of the game. Examples, like building on the NDSU defense that allowed opponents, 59.4 points and 36.3 percent field goal shoo�ng per game, or improving on the 17.3 turnovers commi�ed per game that cut into the Bison offensive produc�vity. "In order for the Bison to be successful this season we have to stay grounded in our fundamental training. Last year we had to adapt due to injuries," said DeHoff. "We need to �ghten some things up especially on the offensive end. A great example is our assist to turnover ra�o. As we con�nue to iden�fy our strengths as players we’ll know how to create for one another and put ourselves in the best posi�on to be successful."

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Improving with each prac�ce and game, Birkel landed a spot on The Summit League's all-newcomer and postseason all-tournament team. While averaging 10 points per game, she ranked fi�h in assist/turnover ra�o, seventh in assists and eighth in steals in the league sta�s�cs. Answering the bell was 5-9 junior Whitney Trecker (New Prague, Minn.), who averaged 5.3 points and 3 rebounds per game while star�ng in 21 of 28 games played. Trecker Seniors, Nicole Vigil (Albuquerque, N.M.) and Skye Smith (New Orleans, La.) also provided solid performances. Trecker consistently turned heads with her energe�c style of play over 24.1 minutes per game. Vigil had her season cut short 13 games into the year, while Smith played in all 29 games and had solid minutes off the bench. There's plenty of newcomers from the region and interna�onally to provide depth in the backcourt. Freshmen, 5-10 Danielle DeGagné (Brandon Manitoba), 5-11 Hannah Linz (Watkins, Minn.), and 5-10 Ashley Tingelstad (East Grand Forks, Minn.). DeGagne was a standout at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Canada, while Linz proved she could fill it up from anywhere while at Watkins-Eden Valley High School. The athle�c Tingelstad will add another dimension to the Bison a�ack. Another freshman, 6-foot Rachelle Eckmann (Trimont, Minn./St. James H.S.), will redshirt this season. Stepping up her game was Samuelson, a 6-foot senior from Underwood, Minn., who regained her bearings on the court a�er a two-year layoff from live game ac�on due to injury. Averaging 7.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in 2009, she grew in confidence and provided NDSU with a solid performer in the paint. Another solid performer inside was 62 senior Jill Zaurba (Mon�cello, Minn.),

SEASON REVIEW UNBELIEVABLE COMEBACK

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

TYPIFIES 2008-09 NDSU WOMEN'S SEASON

26

North Dakota State completed the 2008-09 season with a 16-13 record including a 12-6 third place finish in The Summit League. An unbelievable comeback at 2009 Summit League tournament typified the season for the Bison women. NDSU first-year head coach Carolyn DeHoff had many things thrown her way including injuries and illness. The Bison fought their way through adversity �me and �me again. North Dakota State rallied from a 15-point deficit with under 11 minutes to play to defeat Western Illinois 46-43 in a Summit League women’s basketball tournament quarterfinal March, 8, before 1,654 in the Sioux Falls Arena. Western Illinois built a 24-14 half�me lead as Amanda Walker and Jordon O’Brien each hit a pair of three-pointers. Walker led WIU with 15 points. The Bison went scoreless for nine minutes during one stretch in the opening half. The 14 points in a half matched a season low for NDSU with the other coming Feb. 21 against na�onally-ranked South Dakota State in Fargo. The Westerwinds pulled down 11 offensive rebounds and 20 overall in the first half and also took advantage of 14 NDSU turnovers. Western Illinois led 36-21 with 10:52 remaining on Anneloes Kodde’s threepointer. North Dakota State cut the deficit to 36-28 on Ka�e Birkel‘s second of three treys at the 7:52 mark. Birkel led the Bison with a game-high 16 points. The freshman hit 5 of 10 from the field including 3 of 4 from three-point. However, WIU’s Walker hit a driving layup with 6:43 le� to build the advantage back to 38-28. The Bison then began to roll. Ashley Samuelson hit a three-pointer then recorded one of her three career-high blocked shots that led to a pair of Inger Hodgson free throws that cut the Western Illinois lead to 38-33 with 5:31 remaining. It was the start of an 11-0 run. North Dakota State was pa�ent on offense and defense played an important

role too. Whitney Trecker came up with a pair of steals and a blocked shot. The Bison hit 10 of 12 free throws over the final five minutes as Jerri Penley, Samuelson, Birkel and Trecker all toed the stripe. NDSU hit 15 of 20 from the foul line compared to 6 of 9 for Western Illinois. Birkel drove to the basket to hit a layup to give North Dakota State a 39-38 lead with 3:15 mark -- it’s first since the opening minute of the game. Birkel then drained a long-distance three-pointer that put the Bison up 42-39 with 1:16 remaining. Samuelson scored 15 points and pulled

LISA BUE OVERSEAS

Former North Dakota State University women’s basketball star Lisa Bue plans to play in Finland. NDSU says the 5-foot10 forward has signed a professional contract to play for Catz Lappeenranta in Lappeenranta, which is in southern Finland near the Russian border. Fans can follow Bue's experience overseas at GoBison.com and click on "Bue's View" link on the le�-hand side of the women's basketball page. Bue, who was the 2008 Summit League Player of the Year, also has played professionally in Bosnia and Romania. In Sarajevo, she played for KK Zeljeznicar, and for BC Teleorman in Romina. In the Euro Cup games in Bosnia, Bue averaged 12 points 10 rebounds. She says she’s excited to play in a new place. Last season, she spent �me in Romania and Bosnia where she averaged almost a double-double for the whole season. She says it’s hard to pack her life up into two small suitcases, but clearly, she enjoys seeing different parts of the world. “Especially a�er my experience last year, I’ve learned that every place is very unique and has a lot to offer so I just wanted to go somewhere new just for a new experience and I really wasn’t going to be too picky,” Bue told KAAL-TV (ABC, Channel 6, Aus�n, Minn.) earlier this week. “I’m excited and thankful to have a job and for one more season, be able to travel the world and play some basketball.” She says having blond hair and blue eyes made her s�ck out like a sore thumb in Romania, so she says she’ll feel right at home in a Scandanavian country. “I am so excited and thankful to be blessed with this opportunity! I am also a li�le worried because when I was a li�le girl I always played H-O-R-S-E, Around the World, and any other random game we made up in the driveway with my older sister Emmy, and I always told her that I would buy her a new car when I became a professional basketball player. I really hope she doesn’t hold me to that promise,” said Bue, a na�ve of Aus�n, Minn. “This has been my dream my en�re life, to be paid to do what I love, and I s�ll cannot believe it has actually came true.”

North Dakota State's Lisa Bue (22)

Bue was named the 2008 Summit League Player of the Year a�er finishing third in the league in scoring with 16.9 points per game. She helped NDSU �e for the second-best record in the league at 12-6 and recorded six double-doubles on the season. The Bison were 17-11 overall. Bue was a first-team all-league selec�on, an all-academic pick and three-�me player of the week. “Lisa’s performances were instrumental in our team having an opportunity to finish in second place in the league," said former NDSU head coach Amy Ruley. "Her compe��veness showed in her ability to rebound with larger and stronger athletes on the floor. Her commitment to condi�oning showed in her ability to run the floor and score in transi�on. She is a winner on and

off the floor, and a perfect choice for this recogni�on. She set the bar high for future Bison players.” In 28 games last season, Bue scored more than 20 points four �mes, including a caeer-high 29-point effort on Dec. 30 against Montana State. On Jan. 5, she grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds against Oakland. The senior surpassed the 1,000-point plateau on Jan. 7 and finished with 1,245 points which ranks 19th all�me. In league games, Bue finished in the Top 10 in rebounding (5th, 8.0 rpg), freethrow shoo�ng (4th, .769), steals (8th, 1.89 spg) and defensive rebounds (4th, 5.89 drpg).

Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame head coach Amy Ruley moved from the sidelines as head coach at North Dakota State University into an associate athle�c director for development posi�on in the NDSU athle�c department in March 2008. Ruley is working with NDSU senior associate AD for development Erv Inniger, who was the Bison men’s basketball coach from 1978-1992. “People make the place and NDSU is full of outstanding people. I am honored to be a part of the University and the community. I look forward to con�nuing to help us put a quality product on the fields and courts,” said Ruley. Said Dorn, “Amy’s coaching may be her most visible legacy, but I am confident she will flourish in her new endeavor as her passion to help young people s�ll drives her to this day.” Ruley completed her 29th year as Bison head coach on March 3rd as NDSU defeated Centenary 93-64. She compiled a career record of 671-198, good for a .772 winning percentage. “The �ming is right for me. I have been blessed with outstanding people all around me in my coaching and teaching career,“ said Ruley, who came to Fargo in July 1979. “I made a commitment to our administra�on and President (Joseph A.) Chapman five years ago to see our program through the transi�on. I feel like it is mission accomplished,” she con�nued. “Now the table is set for the new coach and their staff to move the program forward in the new direc�on. I know that person will feel like I did when I started here 29 years ago and appreciate the opportunity to make their mark.” NDSU’s all-�me winningest coach, she was named as the head coach on the NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball 25th Anniversary team. NDSU’s fourth straight NCAA �tle in 1996 was selected as one of the “25 Defining Moments in NCAA History.” A 1978 graduate of Purdue University, Ruley was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in June 2004, and the Purdue Intercollegiate Athle�cs Hall of Fame in November 2004.

BISON PRIDE

Why the Bison?

ing their opponents because they of all people knew what it took to reach the championship level. This wasn't lost on visi�ng players and coaches, nor was the genuine friendliness from the bleachers, motels and restaurants. No, it was something more than exci�ng games and an undefeated season and a na�onal championship right here where we could watch every play. These Bison women were people of our land, the salt of our earth, mostly the products of our farms and small towns. They were hard-working, talented, joyous ambassadors for a part of the country which doesn't exist in millions of minds around the country. And the 7,138 members of that extended family leaped to their feet �me a�er �me Saturday a�ernoon roaring with delight that we not only exist, our people excel. Wri�en by Joe Dill, Editor, The Forum, following North Dakota State's 98-85 win over Portland State in the 1995 NCAA Division II na�onal championship game.

North Dakota State University's athle�c teams have progressed from the “Farmers” in the 1890's to the “Aggies” in the early 1900's, to “Bison”, North Dakota State's current athle�c symbol. It was developed by head football coach Stan Borleske in 1919 because he and members of the football team didn't like being known as the Aggies. Borleske wanted a strong and fierce mascot. The Bison was a logical choice. The great animals once roamed the North Dakota prairie in vast numbers, and over the years Bison athle�c teams added an addi�onal name, the “Thundering Herd.”

The Herd Now this is the law of the prairie As old and as true as the sky And the Bison that keep it will prosper And the Bison that break it will die As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk This law is the final word: For the strength of the Herd is the Bison And the strength of the Bison is the Herd

“The Yellow and Green” Words by A.E. Minard Music by Dr. C.S. (Doc) Putnam Ho! a cheer for the green and yellow, Up with yellow and the green, They're the shades that deck our prairies, Far and wide with glorious sheen. Fields of waving green the spring�me, Golden yellow in the fall. How the great high-arching heaven, Looks and Laughs upon it all.

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Maybe the measure of our pride last week was simply watching the NDSU Bison women's basketball team trying to go undefeated while capturing a na�onal championship. Maybe it was because the Elite 8 tournament was right here in Fargo. Maybe it was because the games were close and the Bison had to extend themselves to win. Maybe it was because the championship game was being na�onally televised. Maybe it was because the Bison players genuinely enjoyed themselves playing the game. All those things were probably factors, but there was something more. At the championship game there was almost a feeling of family among the 7,138 fans. I think it was the makeup of the team. The word “family” kept coming to mind while observing the team members before, during and a�er their three playoff games. The 1994-95 Bison women were our people. There was nobody from Ohio, Illinois or California. There was nobody even from South Dakota, Iowa or Montana. They were home folks. All hailed from North Dakota and Minnesota. Their roots were in Okabena, Wadena, Willmar, Stewartville and Bemidji, Minn.; in Rhame, New Rockford, Milnor and Mandan, N.D. The largest ci�es represented were Bismarck, Grand Forks and Duluth. Most fans had never met any of the players, yet they spoke of them familiarly, almost like neighbors around the corner. It was Jenni and Lori and Kasey and Linda and Lyne�e ... not Rademacher, Roufs, Morlock, Davis and Mund. But it wasn't a sexist, patronizing thing because everybody under that noisy roof knew these superb athletes could outrun and outshoot almost anybody. It was simply, well, a feeling of a�achment, of family, of something special. They possessed the characteris�cs we of the Upper Midwest consider important. They worked hard, they were loyal to each other, they performed unselfishly, they took great pleasure in a teammate's success. They were classy in compliment-

BISON TRADITION

Li�le did these pioneers of the prairie realize 100 years ago, women's basketball at North Dakota State University would not only catch the eye, but capture the imagina�on of the Fargo-Moorhead community and the Upper Midwest. Those hearty women of yesteryear set the standard. The tradi�on, commonly referred to as

“Bison Basketball” is now passed down from genera�on to genera�on as well as from class to class. A century later, only the uniforms are different. However, the high standards of scholarship, athle�cs and good sportsmanship are s�ll upheld. These are the standards against which the Bison are measured.


BISON TRADITION “Amy taught me not only lessons on the court, but life lessons. She has taught me that whatever you do, put everything you have into it. She taught me to have selfdiscipline and that you have to work hard to become the best. I would tell Amy I look up to her and admire the person that she is.” Nadine Schmidt, NDSU All-American forward from 1989-1993.

Si�ng in the stands at the Hearnes Center in Columbia, Missouri, watching the women's basketball teams from Iowa State and Missouri do ba�le, Lyne�e Mund reflected back to her college days on the wooden court. So who is Lyne�e Mund? Well, Mund was a senior on the 1995 North Dakota State women's basketball team that won the program's third straight NCAA Division II na�onal championship ... and went undefeated at 32-0. She was one of 14 players on the Bison roster that season. The remarkable feat was in triplicate because the na�onal champions in women's basketball at all three NCAA Divisions, I (Connec�cut), II (North Dakota State) and III (Capital) ran the table and went undefeated. However, North Dakota State remains the only Division II team to post a perfect ledger. “I was watching that (Iowa StateMissouri) game, it was an intense compe��on. I thought, 'Oh man, what an awesome experience I had playing. Being able to go through a season undefeated',” said Mund, who is now teaching and coaching at West Fargo High School. “I went home a�erwards, and I actually popped in the videotape of that championship game to watch a li�le bit to get that feeling of how awesome it was to play with my friends and just being successful.” It was an interes�ng cast of characters assembled by veteran head coach Amy Ruley, who has guided the Bison to five NCAA �tles during her 23-year career. Maybe underscore the word characters. “So much of that success went beyond those skills. It was their heart and their ability to stay focused, stay posi�ve. It was the quality of compe�tor,” said Ruley, who has directed the Bison into eight NCAA na�onal championship games. “I think that what we accomplished wasn't as important as how we accomplished it. We

played with a lot of enthusiasm and as a team with people trus�ng each other and playing hard together,” said Ruley. From game to game, throughout the season, the focus was ge�ng ready for the next game, the next opponent. That sharp focus was accented by this team's ability to laugh a li�le, hug a li�le and yes, even sing a li�le. Mund, who grew up on a farm in Milnor, North Dakota, kept the mood light at �mes with hilarious stories about unfortunate accidents to an assortment of barnyard animals. To get up before games, the team would gather together and sing silly cheers. O�en the leader was Mund, the court jester. One player, Jenni Rademacher, earned the nickname, "Tasmanian Devil" with her all-out, hurricane-like style of play. Another player, Jessica DeRemer, a 6-3 post player and mass communica�on major, would prac�ce her interviewing skills. Both point guards, Linda Davis and Rhonda Birch, were nursing majors. Not only responsible for running the Bison transi�on offense and se�ng the tempo on defense, these two were also literally running around the FargoMoorhead area to classes, the library, to the lab, to prac�ce and back to the library before calling it a day. Davis did well keeping her composure as “fiddles�cks” and “sugar” were the only discouraging words heard from her. She went on to earn North Central Conference (NCC) Defensive Player of the Year honors. Put an "S" on the jersey of Lori Roufs, who had a breakout season during her junior season. She transformed into a world-beater, using a school and then league record 43-point explosion against Nebraska-Omaha as an exclama�on point. “It's a hot hand, but also a lot of luck. I was in the right place at the right �me, but I also had teammates who recognized what was happening on the court,” said Roufs, who is married and goes by the last name of Hanson

“Winning the na�onal championship in 1991. I remember the feeling of complete togetherness. It was a team goal that we all reached together. It wasn't just the women's team that won the championship – it was our parents, our AD, and all of our fans. At one point with about 30-seconds le�, I turned around and saw all of our parents hugging each other ... it s�ll gives me chills.”

now. She teaches sixth grade social studies and reading at Mon�cello (Minnesota) Middle School and also coaches junior varsity girls' basketball. “I really do believe that the players on that team just loved to play and compete. I don't know that it was a lot more than that. My junior year was one of my favorite years playing at NDSU. I was really enjoying basketball, and I loved my teammates that I was surrounded by. I really think the chemistry was great, everyone knew their roles on the team and did what was asked of them.” Part of the chemistry was the North Dakota State depth. Players like Andrea Kelly, Rachael O�o, Amy Ornell, Tanya Fischer, Erica Lyseng, LaShalle Boehm and Birch were eager to step on the court during games and made life miserable for the starters. “I remember the prac�ces being so tough because the people coming off the bench that year could have started for any other North Central Conference team. Games seemed easier since we beat each other up so much in prac�ce,” said Kasey Morlock, who is married to former Bison football player Garth Tsche�er. The regular season wasn't without its exci�ng moments. North Dakota State opened the campaign at always rugged Minnesota-Duluth, pos�ng a 66-57 win. It was the closest any opponent would come for 23 games when the Bison rallied behind Morlock's 31 points to defeat North Dakota 76-72 in Grand Forks in late February. North Dakota State showed a zest for the game as it defeated opponents by an average of 27.9 points per game. The Bison allowed just 57.9 points each ou�ng and also outrebounded their foes by an average of nearly 16 rebounds per game. “These players just loved the game so much, it was so much of a part of their life,” said Ruley. “A game was important to them. It was a big event. Having a game was a special �me for them, it wasn't just another ac�vity for the day.” However ge�ng to the championship game would be a chore a�er the Bison rolled past Minnesota-Duluth and South Dakota State in the regional and then past Oakland University in the quarterfinal. North Dakota State found a

capable challenger awai�ng in the semifinals. North Dakota State had to withstand the 1-4 offense of Missouri Western, who lost to the Bison the previous season in the quarterfinals. Lightning-quick guard Kathy Dyess led Missouri Western with 28 points, but the Bison countered with super soph Morlock, who proved why she earned Kodak All-America honors and her first of two NCAA Elite Eight most outstanding player awards. Morlock, who played at Stewartville (Minnesota) High School, hit a NCAA Division II tournament record 17 of 19 free throws and scored 33 points to lead North Dakota State to a hard-fought 74-67 victory over Missouri Western. Her final two free throws would allow her to surpass 1,000 points in a career as a sophomore. She finished her career with a school record 2,223 points. “I remember looking at the score thinking, 'this is a good game.' However, I was not nervous. We had not lost all year, and for some reason that was not pressure,” said Morlock. “The game came down to free throws and I shot a number of them. We went into the lockerroom (following the game) excited, but you could tell that everyone expected that season to be playing for a na�onal championship.” It was while watching the consola�on game where talk of a perfect season first came about. “At the �me, I don't know if we realized what we were accomplishing. I think we were so focused on winning the next game that we con�nued to steamroll through the season with great success,” said Roufs. “I do remember our team watching the consola�on game the night before the championship game and someone men�oned we could go undefeated. It had never been men�oned un�l that night. A perfect season wasn't the goal, it was to con�nually come out and be be�er than the compe��on.” And it was a compe��on the Bison and the Vikings of Portland State engaged in. It was perhaps the best NCAA Division II championship game ever played. “That was a great game because both teams played so well. Both teams were hi�ng shots, working hard defensively, but doing the things they wanted to do. It was a test of wills and neither team blinked, neither team cracked,”

“I've had so many wonderful memories of my days at NDSU playing for the Bison. Each year I played got be�er and be�er as did our team. By the �me I was a senior, Coach Amy Ruley set the pace with her first trip to what it was called then, ‘The Final Four’ in Charleston, South Carolina. I will never forget how we got there and how we ended up playing in the championship game out in California to get to the Final Four. It was an exci�ng �me I will never forget. Coach Amy Ruley was and s�ll is a great coach. I just wish she could have been there my freshman year.” Lori (Kne�er) Robbins, NDSU forward, 1978-82. Robbins was inducted into the Bison Athle�c Hall of Fame in 1997.


BISON TRADITION “My overall memory of being a Bison athlete is just an overwhelming love and caring for the program that helped develop me into the person that I am today. Bison Pride is something that will never end. But, by far, the most important thing that NDSU athle�cs gave to me was a group of friends that at �mes seemed more like sisters than ‘just’ friends.” Jody (Renville) Schmidt, NDSU forward, 1985-86, 1988-89

said Ruley. “When players think about playing in a na�onal championship game, that's what it's all about. There was a tremendous amount of energy around the game. It was electric. The focus of the players was sharp, each player on both teams making plays. Every player knowing their role and doing their job to contribute to the success of the team.” Portland State shot 76% in the second half and 63% for the game, but it wasn't enough to stop the Bison. North Dakota State grabbed the lead early, answered each Vikings' rally and pulled away late for a 98-85 win before a NCAA Division II championship game record crowd of 7,138 at the Bison Sports Arena along with a live TV audience on ESPN2. While Portland State All-Americans, center Kris� Smith and guard Kim Manifesto, combined for 51 points, it was another team effort for North Dakota State. Six players scored in double figures led by Roufs' 23 points. Rademacher had 17 points, Morlock and Mund each ne�ed 15, while Birch added 10 and Davis 10. Roufs and Rademacher would go on to play on a fourth NCAA Division II na�onal championship team in 1996, a basketball record at any Division, men's or women's. The winning streak grew to 49, another Division II women's mark. “When ever there's a �me when I am upset, I just think about that experience, and I think, 'Gosh, how lucky I was,' ” said Mund.

LANG INSPIRATION TO MANY

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

NCAA Woman of the Year Finalist One of Many Honors for Theresa Lang

38

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--North Dakota State University basketball standout Theresa Lang was among the 10 finalists for the 1999 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. The NCAA Woman of the Year Award honors outstanding female student-athletes from NCAA ins�tu�ons who have excelled in the collegiate environment beyond their athle�cs pursuits with academic achievements and community involvement. Theresa, the daughter of Jim and Mary Lang, Aus�n, MN, was honored at the awards dinner Oct. 24 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis. Despite being diagnosed with cancer during Christmas break, Lang resumed playing, averaging 7.5 points and 2.9 rebounds. Upon her return to the lineup on Jan. 15, 1999, she nailed a three-point jumper with :48-seconds le�. Lang became the 19th player in the program's history to score 1,000 points during her senior year. She graduated as NDSU's all-�me leader in 3-point field goals made (139) and 3-point field goal percentage (.422, 139x329). More impressive, however, was the fact Lang resumed a normal course load in the classroom and completed the spring semester with a 4.00 grade point average. She went through gradua�on ceremonies and received her bachelor's degree in business administra�on and finished with a 3.67 GPA. The honors were numerous for Lang. She was named 1998-99 Midwest Sports Channel's Most Inspira�onal Amateur Athlete and recipient of a NCAA $5,000

Postgraduate Scholarship. She also received the 1998-99 North Central Conference Ruth Marske Award, and was also a two-�me Academic All-NCC pick. A member of the 1996 NCAA Division II Na�onal Champions, she was named to the 1998 Kodak Division II All-District VII and All-NCC first teams. Ac�ve off the court, Lang was "Get Into the Game" reading program volunteer from 1997-99. She served as the 1998-1999 NDSU Student-Athlete Advisory Council president, and was also a member of the 1998-1999 NCC StudentAthlete Council. “Theresa had a huge posi�ve impact on campus at NDSU,” said Bison basketball coach Amy Ruley. “As a senior captain in 1999, Theresa led the team to a perfect 11-0 start un�l being forced to the sideline a�er being diagnosed with cancer. Aware of the seriousness of her illness, she elected to be with and cheer her team from the bench only four days a�er diagnosis. A�er beginning chemotherapy treatments, Theresa returned campus to again provide support. She displayed a posi�ve a�tude and strong will in her ba�le with the illness. Her strength and strong faith proved to be an inspira�on to the en�re community.” Lang, who now is married and has the last name of Schmidt, is currently living and working in the Twin Ci�es.

“A�er church one Sunday, eleven year old Tessa congratulated me on our team's Saturday night victory. Her face gleamed with excitement and admira�on as she recited play by play ac�on of my personal highlights from the game. I was absolutely shocked and honored by the impression I had made on Tessa's life. “When I reflect on my four years at NDSU, I am most proud of being a posi�ve role model for girls like Tessa. I have been fortunate enough to develop rela�onships with young people in my community where I have helped them grow as athletes and people. I hope that my personal commitment to academics and athle�cs has served as a guide for young student athletes. Whenever young people ask me how much �me I spent prac�cing each day to receive a college basketball scholarship, I tell them only half as much �me as I spent studying for school. “Basketball has opened the door to a world of opportuni�es for me. It has provided my �cket to opportuni�es of higher educa�on, trips around the country, and friendships that will last a life�me. Basketball has literally shaped my life with principles of hard work, responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and dedica�on. I have received so much from the game of basketball that being a posi�ve role model and opening the door of opportunity for young people like Tessa is the least that I can do.” Theresa Lang

Widest Margin of Home Victory

North Dakota State head coach Amy Ruley has built up quite a following in Fargo. It's not to hard to see why with the success the Bison have enjoyed. Along with five na�onal �tles under her belt, she had 25 consecu�ve winning seasons — including 16 straight 20-win ledgers from 1986 to 2001.

SUMMIT League The Summit League

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE

Now in its 28th year as an NCAA Division I athle�cs conference, The Summit League con�nues its renaissance and ascent both on the playing field and in the classroom. Originally formed in 1982 as the Associa�on of Mid-Con�nent Universi�es and later known as the Mid-Con�nent Conference, The Summit League is in its third year of a rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athle�c performances of all league student-athletes. Included in the plan was the league’s new name, the crea�on of a new image and the addi�on of three member ins�tu�ons. The 10 Summit League member ins�tu�ons include Centenary College of Louisiana, IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), North Dakota State University, Oakland University, Oral Roberts University, South Dakota State University, Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University. In April 2009, the University of South Dakota accepted an invita�on to join the league with full membership during the 2011-12 academic year and will begin as an associate member for swimming and diving in 2009-10. The league has one other associate member, Eastern Illinois University, which competes in swimming and diving. Centenary College will leave the league a�er the 2010-11 season. These member ins�tu�ons pride themselves on providing quality athle�c, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports, which include: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, so�ball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The league champion receives automa�c bids to the NCAA tournament in all applicable sports. Since its incep�on in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the na�onal stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset third-seeded Indiana in the first round of the NCAA men’s basket-

ball tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the na�on’s a�en�on when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA first-round game and spark its Sweet 16 run. More recently, the Oral Roberts baseball program finished the 2004 campaign with a na�onal ranking and became the first Summit League school to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in 2006. The league has produced four Olympic athletes, four NCAA champions and several All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving and cross country. Numerous professionals and several dra� choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball first round picks, a pair of NBA first rounders and one WNBA selec�on. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-�me all-stars during their professional careers. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athle�cs.

NCAA Title Games Northern Kentucky Turns Back North Dakota State in Over�me

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

No. 2-ranked Northern Kentucky University outscored No. 3 North Dakota State University 14-5 in over�me to post a 71-62 victory in the NCAA Division II Elite Eight Championship game March 25 played before 472 fans at the Pine Bluff Conven�on Center. It was the firstever na�onal �tle for the Norse (32-2), which became the first team outside the state of North Dakota to win the championship since Delta State accomplished the feat in 1992. NKU also extended its winning streak to 24 games. North Dakota State suffered through a 0-of-11 shoo�ng effort from the field in over�me, and made only 1-of-14 field goal a�empts in the game's final 11:25. "We just didn't seem to get anything going smoothly offensively. I felt lucky to have stayed with them in the first half, but in the second half the bo�om fell out offensively," said North Dakota State head coach Amy Ruley. The Bison are 5-3 in NCAA

55

championship games. "We couldn't stay in a rhythm. Foul trouble hurt us. It changed some things for us. As a studentathlete, you need to be able to adjust. We didn't adjust as well as we could have." NCAA Elite Eight MVP Michelle Co�rell scored six of her gamehigh 23 points in the over�me period. Co�rell also pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds. Teammate Michele Tuchfarber, who joined Co�rell on the alltournament team, finished with nine points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals. North Dakota State was paced by the hard-working Jaime Berry, who came off the bench to score 16 points and grab 10 rebounds. Berry had only one point combined in the previous two tourney games. Jayne Even finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds to record her 19th "daily double" of the season. Amundson had 11 points. Jayne Boeddeker and Even were selected to the all-tournament team along with NKU's Tuchfarber and Co�rell; Delta State's Caroline Boclair and Western Washington's Celeste Hill.

Bison Capture Fourth Straight NCAA Division II Championship

For a few cherished moments late on the a�ernoon of March 23, 1996, life in the world of North Dakota State women's basketball was perfect. It doesn't just happen in the movies. The film “Fargo” debuted earlier in the week. The real show, with real characters and real emo�ons, was at the Bison Sports Arena. There is no way Jen Rademacher could have wri�en a be�er ending to her career. Her last shot was a 3-point field goal. Swish. It gave the Bison 100 points. It was the toast of 6,534 fans. It was part of a 104-78 celebra�on over an outmatched Shippensburg University that gave NDSU the 1996 NCAA Division II Women's Basketball tournament �tle. In finishing 30-2, the Bison claimed their fourth na�onal championship and fi�h in six years. Their 104 points set an NCAA championship game record, eclipsing last year's 98 against Portland State. “Highlights,” Rademacher said, in repea�ng a ques�on. “There

are four.” Rademacher and senior Lori Roufs each won their fourth NCAA ring, something that can only be duplicated. Their last game, however, will never be replicated. Roufs led all scorers with 28 points and all rebounders with 10. Rademacher hit 7 of 8 field goals and finished with 15 points. NDSU had a 57-percent accuracy against a man-to-man defense. The Lady Raiders, then, started the second half with a zone. Birch and Lang promptly drilled NDSU's first 3-point field goal a�empts of the game for a 63-35 advantage. In short, it was a domina�ng performance. For the second straight year, Morlock of NDSU was named most valuable player of the tournament. In three games, she scored 54 points and grabbed 22 rebounds. Joining Morlock on the all-tournament team were Lori Roufs and Jen Rademacher of NDSU, Jennifer Clarkson and Caroline Omamo of Abilene Chris�an, and Shippensburg's Spencer.


NCAA Title Games Perfect Finish for NDSU In Winning Third Straight Title

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Perfec�on is what the 1995 North Dakota State University women's basketball team will be remembered for a�er winning its third straight NCAA Division II championship on March 25, 1995. With a 98-85 win over Portland State, played at the Bison Sports Arena before a �tle-game record 7,138 fans, NDSU became the first Division II women's champion to finish the season unbeaten. NDSU finished 32-0 and extended its winning streak to 41 games. The Bison, ranked No. 1 the en�re season, also became the first women's team to win four Division II na�onal �tles. “That's a dream,” said Lyne�e Mund, one of only two seniors on the 1995 team. “Hardly anyone does that.” Hardly any team shoots 63 percent from the field, scores 85 points and loses. But that's what happened to Greg Bruce's Portland State squad, making its first championship game appearance. The Bison, normally 44 percent shooters, countered Portland State's hot hand with 52 percent

56

shoo�ng and their fourth highestscoring game of the season. Thanks to their aggressive approach, six Bison players scored in double figures. Portland State cut the Bison lead to three points in the first half and five points early in the second half. But the Vikings could get no closer. “I always felt like we were playing well and never got out of our game plan,” said NDSU head coach Amy Ruley, who directed the Bison to their fourth NCAA �tle in five years. “It was a fun one to coach.” It was also a fun game to play in. Lori Roufs led the Bison with 23 points and 5 rebounds, while Jenni Rademacher followed with 17. Kasey Morlock and Lyne�e Mund each had 15 points, while Rhonda Birch and Linda Davis each finished with 11. Morlock was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Elite Eight, while Roufs was selected to the all-tourney team.

North Dakota State's Lori Roufs (30) drove to the basket during the 1995 NCAA Division II na�onal championship game at the Bison Sports Arena.

NDSU's Lyne�e Mund (42) scored two of her nine points against Cal StateSan Bernardino during the 1994 NCAA Division II championship game played at the Bison Sports Arena.

Bison Roll to Second Straight Na�onal Title at Home in '94 North Dakota State senior Darci Steere, playing in her fourth NCAA championship final, poured in 32 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to lead the Bison past Cal State-San Bernardino 89-56. “Not very many people get the opportunity to play in a championship game and even fewer people get the opportunity to play in four,” said Steere. “There is no greater feeling in the world than going out your senior year as the na�onal champions.” The victory was even more special as it came in the Bison Sports Arena before 6,806 apprecia�ve fans. When the Bison last hosted the Division II championship in 1992 they were defeated by Delta State 65-63. As was the case throughout the championship, s�fling defense was the key for the Bison. NDSU limited the Coyotes to 25 percent shooting on the night, including a frigid 21 percent (7-of-33) in the decisive second half. Trailing 18-13 midway in the first half, Jen Rademacher and Rhonda Birch sparked a 17-3 run

which helped the Bison take a 3928 hal�ime lead. Cal State-San Bernardino looked to be in a posi�on to challenge in the second half, but the Bison picked up their intensity a�er the intermission. “Our team is one that kind of feels teams out,” said NDSU head coach Amy Ruley. “And in those cases usually the second half is our be�er half.” The championship game turned out to be one of those cases. The Bison began the second half with a 20-10 run that extended the lead to 59-38 with 12:46 le�. Steere, the championship's most outstanding player, tallied 13 of NDSU's 20 points during that stretch. The Coyotes' shoo�ng woes were never more evident than midway in the second half when they went 5:35 without a basket. Steere, who hit 11-of-18 from the field and 10-of-13 from the foul line, was joined on the all-tourney team by teammates Rademacher and Kasey Morlock, and Kim Young and Chery'll Few from Cal State-San Bernardino. Few led the Coyotes with 25 points.


NCAA Title Games NDSU Gets Revenge By Defea�ng Delta State in 1993

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

WALTHAM, Mass. -- It took a year, but North Dakota State rid itself of the bi�er taste of defeat and regained the sweet taste of victory. Nadine Schmidt scored 24 points and Jackie Parsley added 17 to power the Bison past Delta State 9563 in the NCAA Division II championship game on March 27, 1993 The margin of victory was the second largest in the tournament's 12-year history and avenged Delta State's 65-63 win the year before. NDSU has won two of the last three championships. “We had something to prove tonight, and we went out and did it,” Schmidt said. “We had a bad taste in our mouth from last year, so we wanted to go out tonight with a big bang. I think we did.” Indeed, NDSU (30-2) did not waste any �me, opening a 40-26 hal�ime lead and never looking back in the second half. Jenni Rademacher scored 14 points for the Bison, and Darci Steere scored 10 points and pulled down a team-high seven rebounds. “We were more confident this

57

year,” NDSU coach Amy Ruley said. “Last year was a big mo�vator.” LaTanya Pa�y led Delta State (276) with 14 points. Leslie McKiernon scored 11 points and led the Lady Statesmen with 12 rebounds. “We were very posi�ve going into the game, but we didn't think on the floor and get it done,” McKiernon said. Delta State led early 8-5, but never saw another lead. The closest they came was 16-15 with 11:25 le� in the first half when Dawn Chism completed a three-point play. The Bison then went on an 18-4 run and took a 34-19 lead with 4:59 to go in the first half on Lyne�e Mund's jump shot. NDSU took a 40-26 lead into half�me, as Schmidt scored 11 points and Rademacher 10. NDSU's 95 points was a championship record. Schmidt was named the tournament's MVP. She also was the MVP in 1991. Jody Buck and Jackie Parsley were named to the all-tournament team.

NDSU's Jody Buck (20) pushed the ball down the court and led the Bison to a 95-63 win against Delta State in the 1993 NCAA championship game.

Delta State Stalls Bison “O” In 1992 NCAA Title Game

Much like North Dakota State did the previous year, Delta State University went on the road to garner the NCAA Division II na�onal �tle. Playing before 7,101 fans at the Bison Sports Arena, the Lady Statesmen used a dominant inside game and a zone defense to defeat North Dakota State 65-63 to win the 1992 Division II championship. The championship was Delta State's third over the past four years. Delta State frustrated North Dakota State with an air �ght defense, holding the Bison to only 34.5 percent shoo�ng from the floor. “We haven't played against a zone for quite a while,” said North Dakota State All-America Nadine Schmidt. “We were struggling and wai�ng for someone else to pick it up.” Center Leslie McKiernon, the tournament's most outstanding player, poured in 29 points to

lead a Delta State offensive attack which scored all but 11 of its points inside the paint. The Lady Statesmen led 36-29 at hal�ime, but NDSU quickly drew to within five at 40-35 with 15:24 le� in the game. Delta State went on a 13-4 run during a six-minute span to extend the lead to 53-39 on a McKiernon layup with 9:20 le�. However, North Dakota State con�nually cut into the deficit and pulled to within 63-60 on a three-pointer by Susan Faus with just 15 seconds le� in the game, and things seemed to be heading toward a possible over�me. McKiernon again came up big and connected on two crucial free throws with :03 le� to build the lead back to five. The free throws proved to be more than just academic as Lyne�e Mund connected on a three-pointer heave at the buzzer to provide the game's final score, 65-63. Jody Buck led the Bison with 13 points, while Schmidt scored 12 points. Schmidt and Buck were all-tournament selec�ons.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. --Sophomore Jody Buck's 7-of-9 field goal shoo�ng headed a pa�ent offense that led North Dakota State University to an 81-74 victory over Southeast Missouri State University for the NCAA Division II �tle on March 23, 1991. Buck's 19 points led five North Dakota State players in double figures. The Bison led 38-34 at hal�ime, then wrestled away the lead for good at 50-49 on Susan Faus' three-point play with 12:13 remaining. North Dakota State shot 59 percent in the final half and 54 percent overall to conclude a 31-2 season -- se�ng school records for most victories and best winning percentage (.939). Southeast Missouri, playing on its homecourt and in front of 7,064 fans, finished 31-4. The host Otahkians brought a he�y 21-game winning streak into the championship contest. “We went through a lot of challenges and accepted all of them except for one,” said Southeast coach Ed Arnzen. “They are a great team. They hit the big shots �me a�er �me

when they had to have it.” One of the biggest shots was hit by Jill DeVries, who put the Bison up 72-66 with a 3-pointer with 3:42 remaining. A layup by Buck and a DeVries free throw made the score 75-66 with 2:05 le�. Southeast got no closer than five points in the final five minutes. Southeast Missouri led three �mes in the final half, but was unable to match North Dakota State's ball-handling and half-court offense. SE Missouri's biggest of three leads was 49-45 on Stephanie Holland's two free throws before North Dakota State rebounded. “I had a good feeling that we needed to play defense in a zone tonight,” said Bison head coach Amy Ruley. “It took them out of their game.” Nadine Schmidt, the tourney's MVP, had 13 points and seven rebounds for NDSU. DeVries was selected to the all-tourney team. Sarita Wesley ne�ed a game-high 26 points for SEMO.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- North Dakota State wasn't supposed to be in Springfield. But when the championship concluded those same skep�cs knew they hadn't seen the last of the Bison. Favored Cal Poly Pomona became the first women's team in the NCAA basketball championships to win back-to-back �tles. The poised and talented Broncos turned back first-�me tourney entry North Dakota State, 70-63, before a crowd of 5,398 at the Springfield Civic Center. “We beat a very good team tonight,” said Cal Poly Pomona coach Darlene May, whose team won three of five women's crowns in Springfield. “North Dakota State's zone defense is as good as we've seen all year,” con�nued May. “Early on, I thought we could put them away, but they slowed down our running game and took away our momentum.” With Cal Poly's Division II player of the year and usual high scorer Vickie Mitchell in foul trouble early, frontcourt teammates Debra Larsen and Debbie Fle� responded with 19 points apiece. Larsen, who was named the tourney's most outstanding player, also delivered a game-

high 11 rebounds. Pomona tried to carve a runaway lead, jumping out in front 17-4 in the first five minutes as Larsen was taking liber�es underneath off the flashy feeds of point guard Michelle McCoy. McCoy, a transfer from UCLA, ended with 16 points and seven assists. North Dakota State, on the outside shoo�ng of Janice Woods and Pat Smykowski, erupted for nine straight points near the end of the half and took its first lead at 35-34 with 2:27 le� before the intermission. The Bison were on top for the last �me at 37-36. Larsen then made three at the line and added a rebound of her own miss to put the Broncos ahead 41-37 at hal�ime. A�er Woods opened the second half with a hoop for North Dakota State, Cal Poly Pomona got the next 10 points and steadily began to pull away. The Bison never came closer than seven the rest of the way. Smykowski led North Dakota State with 20 points, while Woods added 18 points. The NDSU pair were named to the NCAA all-tournament team. “I thought our team played hard, but we ran out of gas in the second half,” said NDSU head coach Amy Ruley. “Cal Poly's transi�on game is as quick as we've ever seen.”

North Dakota State captured runnerup honors in the 1986 NCAA tourney in Springfield, Mass.

2010 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Ruley, North Dakota State Among NCAA's Most Defining Moments

59

North Dakota State winning a fourth straight NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Championship in 1996 was selected as one of the “25 Defining Moments in NCAA History”. The defining moments encompass all NCAA championship sports and all three divisions (I, II, III). The Bison four-year run included a perfect 32-0 season in 1994-95 and a 49game winning streak, one of the longest in NCAA history. “It’s an honor to be recognized by the NCAA, especially when you look at all the signficant events that have taken place over the past 100 years,” said NDSU head women’s basketball coach Amy Ruley, who directed the Bison to five Division II na�onal �tles and eight championship game appearances. “It’s more of an honor for the university, the program, the student-athletes, the administrators and staff involved.” Jen Rademacher and Lori Roufs played on four straight NCAA Division II Na�onal Championship teams during their careers at Kasey Morlock North Dakota State. “What a great honor for the program. This is a real tribute to the coaching staff and the people in the program who have been commi�ed to making NDSU successful,” said Roufs. “I consider myself fortunate to have played for Coach Ruley and Kelli (Layman), as well as having had such incredible experiences and opportuni�es. Now, years later, I s�ll have great memories and friendships that came out of four years of basketball at NDSU.” ESPN Classic and ESPNU aired “25 Defining Moments in NCAA History” throughout the months of January, March and September 2006. Each moment was a 30-second vigne�e that highlighted the most exci�ng, important and memorable events in the NCAA’s history. The NCAA celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2006. In addi�on, Ruley and former NCAA Division II Player of the Year Kasey Morlock were selected to the NCAA 25th Anniversary Division II Women’s Basketball Team along with Cal Poly’s Niki Bracken, Northern Kentucky’s Michelle Co�rell, North Dakota’s Jenny Crouse and Central Missouri State’s Carla Eades. Ruley, who was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2004, compiled a 671-198 record in 29 seasons at the university. She directed the Bison women's basketball program in their transi�on into the Division I ranks. Morlock, who is NDSU’s all-�me leading scorer with 2,233 points, played on three na�onal �tle teams and was named the NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player in 1995 and in 1996. “As far as being selected to the 25th anniversary team, all I can say is that I am really honored,” said Morlock, who was a three-�me All-American. “I think the award is more about me being a part of a special �me in NDSU women’s history. I was lucky enough to be on some really talented teams with amazing coaches.” The 25th anniversary of NCAA women’s championships were celebrated throughout the 2005-06 championship season. NCAA Division II women’s basketball began in 1981 and commemorated its anniversary at the 2006 championship.

• NDSU will become one of the top 100 universi�es in the number of Na�onal Merit Scholars enrolled. “It is our responsibility to further the excellence of this ins�tu�on. The people of NDSU are our greatest strength, the reason to be op�mis�c about con�nuing our transforma�onal journey,” Chapman said to faculty, staff and students during his 2008 State of the University Address. “People are drawn to success. People are drawn to be part of something meaningful. You are our greatest asset and the enduring contribu�on of NDSU. You are carrying forward the best tradi�ons of the best Land Grant ins�tu�ons.”

NDSU: yesterday and today

The state’s first land-grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educa�onal work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892.

Renamed in 1960 as North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science, the ins�tu�on educates students for a mul�tude of career opportuni�es. The university is comprised of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources; College of Arts, Humani�es and Social Sciences; College of Business; College of Engineering and Architecture; College of Human Development and Educa�on; College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Sciences; College of Science and Mathema�cs; College of University Studies; and College of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. NDSU now offers 44 doctoral programs, 59 master’s programs, an educa�onal specialist degree and eight cer�ficate programs. Students work closely with NDSU’s chemists, engineers, architects, musicians, pharmacists, writers and other respected faculty who frequently are on the leading edge of research in their chosen areas. As of fall 2008, the university had 740 members of its instruc�onal faculty, including 523 who have achieved the highest degrees in their fields.

2010 BISON WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

orth Dakota State University is a “place of impact” and an ins�tu�on with both success and momentum, according to President Joseph A. Chapman. With growth to more than 14,000 students and annual research expenditures topping $100 million, NDSU has enjoyed a remarkable period of achievement. Shortly a�er Chapman’s arrival on campus in 1999, he challenged each college and department to advance to the next level. The results have led to increased educa�onal programs, greater research opportuni�es and a growing, prospering university. During this extraordinary decade, Chapman said NDSU’s growth has meant an addi�onal $1 billion to the state’s economy. There also has been tremendous growth in facili�es in recent years, and two downtown Fargo buildings have joined the NDSU community. The former Pioneer Mutual Building is now Richard H. Barry Hall, has been converted into offices and classrooms for the College of Business and the Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics. The former Lincoln Na�onal Life Building has become Klai Hall, and has been renovated into studio space for the Department of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. “We are part of a tradi�on of high quality educa�on, cu�ng edge research and meaningful service to the people of North Dakota, the na�on and the world,” he said during his 2008 State of the University Address, no�ng the Land Grant ideal mandates prepara�on for society’s changes and NDSU is preparing students for and assis�ng business with the global marketplace. The state, na�on and world can expect more in the years to come. NDSU has used these five themes in its transforma�on: “It’s About People,” “Students are Paramount,” “Programs,” “Leveraging Support” and “Stature.” Now, Chapman said three qualita�ve principles are being added: “Inclusive,” “Responsive” and “Excellent.” Looking to the future, President Chapman has outlined several goals. The include: • NDSU will further raise the caliber of its research enterprise. • NDSU will be among the top 15 computer centers in the world, with compu�ng power approaching 100 teraflops. A teraflop is a compu�ng speed equal to one trillion floating-point opera�ons per second. • NDSU will con�nue to be one of the leading agricultural research programs in the world. • NDSU will make advancements in the arts, humani�es, health sciences, material science and science, and engineering and mathema�cs educa�onal programs.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is o�en listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an AllAmerican City by the Na�onal Civic League in 2000, FargoMoorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Sea�le. About 187,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Coun�es. Accolades for the community come from a variety of sources. For instance, Forbes. com listed NDSU and Fargo as number five in an ar�cle called “Top College Towns for Jobs.” The research used U.S. metropolitan sta�s�cal area data and examined job growth using data from Moody’s Economy.com. A report from the American Lung Associa�on names Fargo-Moorhead as the best city for ozone pollu�on, short-term par�cle pollu�on and long-term par�cle pollu�on. Fargo-Moorhead has topped a list of 72 areas studied by Earth Day Network and ranked for environmental health. Researchers looked at more than 200 indicators, with Fargo the best in air quality, drinking and surface water, and toxins and waste. In addi�on, the Fargo-Moorhead community ranked number 15 on the “Best U.S. Ci�es for Job Growth” published on NewGeography. com.

oseph A. Chapman has led North Dakota State University since June 1999, and under his energe�c and visionary leadership, the university has transformed in a number of important measures. Student enrollment has grown each year of his tenure. Undergraduate students from around the region, the na�on and the world have made NDSU their ins�tu�on of choice. The university also added numerous master’s programs, and the number of doctoral program offerings has more than doubled since 1999. Chapman also has energized the university’s research efforts, broadening the por�olio from less than $50 million in research expenditures to more than $100 million for the past several years. This is an important and recognized indicator of the caliber of work conducted. In fact, NDSU is listed in the top 100 research universi�es in the country in several Na�onal Science Founda�on categories, and when ranked by research and development expenditures among 537 research universi�es without a medical school, NDSU is 41st in the Na�onal Science Founda�on report. He sought partnerships from the private sector to enable expansion of NDSU’s Research and Technology Park, a catalyst for innova�on in science and technology. The NDSU park is considered a model for success by partnering with private sector companies to enhance the educa�onal opportuni�es and economic ac�vity in the state and region.

In the classroom, the student-athletes’ academic achievement mirrors their athle�c excellence. Twenty-five women have been selected for 40 CoSIDA Academic All-America® awards and 16 have earned NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships. Named one of the five most influen�al people in Division II athle�cs by College Sports magazine in 1995, Dorn quickly credits others for NDSU’s ongoing success. “It’s the quality of the people who are part of the team at NDSU. The credit really goes to the coaches, who are outstanding individuals commi�ed to the welfare of the student-athlete,” she said. “To be able to manage that talent is exci�ng. I think I have the best job on campus.” Dorn, named one of seven administrators of the year in 2002 by the Na�onal Associaton of Collegiate Women Athle�c Administrators and named the Women’s Basketball Coaches Associa�on Administrator of the Year in 1997, sees her role as a facilitator who empowers coaches to use their individual skills while working within a framework of common goals and themes. Dorn received her bachelor’s degree from Bemidji State in 1972 and her master’s degree in physical educa�on from Minnesota in 1977.

Residence Life

Living on campus is an important part of the college experience. It’s a way to make new friends and join a variety of educa�onal, cultural, social and recrea�onal ac�vi�es. Na�onal studies show students living on campus are more likely to persist in their educa�on and earn higher GPAs than their off-campus peers. The Department of Residence Life offers a variety of op�ons for on-campus living, from tradi�onal men’s and women’s halls to four-bedroom apartments. The goal is to provide NDSU students a clean, safe, comfortable and affordable environment where academic success is encouraged and supported. On-campus living offers the opportunity to become part of a learning community.

Strength and Condi�oning

2010 BISON WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

North Dakota State takes a comprehensive approach to the physical development of the student-athlete.

From the se�lers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will con�nue to be the strength of North Dakota. The state is home to some of the richest soil in the world. North Dakota is a prime exporter of agricultural products, taking the trophy in produc�on of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the produc�on of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, len�ls, sunflowers, barley and oats. About 10 percent of North Dakota’s area, the band of rich soil 40 miles west of the Red River, is o�en called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock produc�on is second only to wheat in North Dakota’s agricultural economy. It is most important in western North Dakota where the land is less suited for grain crops. The main livestock are beef, dairy ca�le and hogs. The importance of ca�le ranching has been challenged in recent years by the development of North Dakota’s tremendous oil and coal reserves. Energy is the state’s thirdlargest industry. Since the late 1970s and the infamous Arab oil embargo, North Dakota has been in the forefront of the na�onal effort to provide more oil and gas from domes�c sources. North Dakota has one of the world’s largest deposits of lignite coal. Among coal-producing states, North Dakota ranks ninth and produces 3 percent of the na�on’s output.

NCAA COMPLIANCE

N

orth Dakota State University’s athletics program is rich in tradition. Its storied history includes national, regional, and conference championships and champions. On top of these athletic achievements are numerous academic championships earned by our student-athletes. As we strive to continue the championship tradition of Bison Athletics, we must always seek the highest of ethical conduct. North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

ARE YOU A REPRESENTATIVE OF NDSU’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS? You are a representative of NDSU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster”, if you meet any of the following conditions:  You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers).  You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization.  You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU.  You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled studentathletes.  You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families.  You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE?

84

A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll. WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY? Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from:  Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, e-mails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.  Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a

prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution.  Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches. NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to e-mail, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS  You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives.  You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU.  You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/her relatives or friends to visit campus.  You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp.  You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate.  You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES  You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends.  You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.

 You may not provide student-athletes with any special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation).  You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls.  You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to studentathletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office.  You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home.  You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product.  You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete.  You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU. WHAT CAN YOU DO?  Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member.  View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest.  Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff.  Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
