BISON PHILOSOPHY RECRUITING

Character Counts. When we recruit student-athletes, there’s no doubt we look for athletically skilled players. Once we identify those players we begin our homework and ascertain what type of person they are, taking into consideration both academic and athletic goals/aspirations. A considerable factor that we evaluate is how they perform in the classroom. Do they value their education? From there, we start to cultivate a relationship that allows us to get to know them and to share knowledge and insight about our program and NDSU tradition. We want the perfect fit for both the student-athlete and our program. It is critical for both the prospective student-athlete and our program to feel a connection to NDSU because our experiences will be shared and what we are “shooting” for with regards to results must be unified. Those results are defined as SUCCESS in both the classroom and on the court.

PURPOSE/GOALS (POTENTIAL)

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

2011 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

6

Expect Great. Keep it Simple. We expect to communicate, expect to learn, expect to trust, and expect to be accountable. As a student-athlete and coach we are dedicated to what we want, we have a vision, we remain focused on that vision, and are determined to let no one stand in our way. “DO IT!” Those involved with our program have it engrained 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 potential. Our players learn the concepts and principles of the motion offense, and are allowed to read and react to how they are defended. An emphasis on comprehension and translating knowledge into action onto the court is vital for our athletes. They are allowed the freedom to play and be successful within the foundation of our offense. Our defensive philosophy is to operate out of our base defense. Our players learn the value of game preparation, always knowing that no matter what comes at us on the floor we will have our base defense to fall back on when needed. We are committed to preparation, prepared to succeed, and trust our training in all that we do.


BISON ASSISTANTS Jaime BERRY Assistant Coach

(North Dakota State, 2003)

(Princeton, 2008)

Ali Prichard was promoted to assistant women’s basketball coach at North Dakota State University in July 2010. “I couldn’t be more pleased that Coach (Carolyn) DeHoff has given me the opportunity to take the next step in my career while remaining at NDSU,” said Prichard. Prichard was the director of operations for two seasons. She will coordinate the Bison recruiting efforts, coordinate player academic progress, oversees equipment administration and assists with training perimeter players. “I am extremely pleased and confident in the direction our staff is taking this program. The promotion of Ali (Prichard) to an assistant coach position is a direct reflection of her capabilities,” said DeHoff. “Ali is ready for the new role and we expect the recruiting plan that has been put in place will continue to develop even further.” 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 2008. She wrote an 80-page senior thesis on coaching behaviors and philosophies based on in-depth interviews of 17 Princeton University head coaches. Prichard was a three-sport letterwinner in basketball, tennis and softball all four years at Apple Valley High School. She was voted the school’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2004. Prichard was a member of the National Honor Society and graduated in the top five percent of her class. Prichard is pursuing her master's degree in sports leadership and pedagogy at NDSU.

Jaime Berry begins her third season as an assistant coach at North Dakota State University. Primary responsibilities will involve scheduling, the development, coordination, and implementation of a scouting and game preparation plan. Berry will also oversee film exchange, assist in recruiting and on the court will train the perimeter players. "Jaime is a constant in our program. She provides great insight, especially in the areas of practice and games. She will take a larger role in scout and game file this year. I am confident she will do a great job," said Bison head coach Carolyn DeHoff. "Every program that Jaime has been affiliated with has been a success. She knows and understands the commitment to develop winners; Jaime’s background lends itself well to the coaching philosophy at NDSU.” Berry spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at the University of South Dakota. The Coyotes, 33-2 overall, advanced to the 2008 NCAA Division II national championship game. USD won the North Central Conference title. The former NDSU standout was named to the 2001 Daktronics Division II All-America third team.

Deanne Stevenson was named assistant women's basketball coach in October 2010 at North Dakota State University. She spent one month as director of operations before stepping into a vacancy on the staff. Stevenson will be responsible for supervising the strength and conditioning of the student-athletes, marketing, team travel, work directly with the post players, and assist in scouting of opponents and recruitment. "Our system at North Dakota State is similar to the one Deanne (Stevenson) played under at the University of Utah. The transition to on court coaching seemed only natural," said NDSU head coach Carolyn DeHoff. Stevenson was a former player at the University of Utah when Coach DeHoff served as an assistant and associate head coach under Elaine Elliott. Stevenson was a member of the 2006 NCAA Elite Eight team that lost to eventual national champion Maryland. She competed in four NCAA tournaments in her five years at Utah. At the conclusion of Stevenson's sophomore year she was awarded a medical hardship due to a career-ending injury. She worked 10 hours per week in the women's basketball office, while also gaining valuable administration and camp experience. Stevenson did return to the basketball court after submitting a waiver to the NCAA to restore her eligibility.

North Dakota State head women's basketball coach Carolyn DeHoff enters her third season in Fargo with seven returning letterwinners including three starters. DeHoff and the group of upperclassmen, seniors Whitney Trecker and Megan Shea, and juniors Abby Plucker and Katie Birkel, have been through quite a lot over the past two seasons. "Their leadership and experience is priceless," said DeHoff. It was the injuries and adversity that has made the bond between the players, and the players and coaches tighter. NDSU's goal is to be the best team in the Summit League. Yes, the Bison have put together back-to-back 16-13 seasons. Yes, the Bison have five freshmen to work into mix. However, DeHoff enters her third season at NDSU. Trecker and Shea, Plucker and Birkel have played a role in the first two seasons. "The area we control is our effort that we bring today. Effort can be measured by doing the little things and finishing possessions. Doing the little things will take care of the big picture," said DeHoff. "Entering our third year, the most notable difference is our leadership with the four upperclassmen (Whitney, Megan, Abby, Katie). Having been in our system for two years they are now able to teach the young players our expectations in all areas, basketball, academics and social accountability. It’s hard to measure the importance of their leadership until you realize the first two years the coaches were teaching the players our system." There's a good teacher in Birkel,

who has started in all 58 games played at NDSU and holds the school career record averaging over 32 minutes per game. Birkel, a 5-foot-8 guard from Lincoln, Neb., has been added to The Nancy Lieberman Award watch list for most outstanding women's college basketball point guard. She was a 2011 preseason All-Summit League first league selection on the heels of picking up all-league

first team honors last year, along with Summit League all-tournament and all-newcomer team recognition as a freshman. "Her ability to direct the offense, be an offensive threat, and know how to make players around her better certainly became obvious towards the end of last season," said DeHoff. "We look forward to Katie continuing where she left off." The coaching staff is looking for


BISON PREVIEW vice-president. A gifted public speaker, Plucker has represented NDSU studentathletes at several different functions. And basketball-wise... "Abby is stronger and incredibly confident in her skill set right now," said DeHoff. "The summer strength and conditioning program along with the spring and fall skill sessions were a

tremendous advantage for Abby. She can do many things on the court for us and we look forward to seeing her at her best this season." Plucker will be passing on past lessons learned to freshmen, 5-11 Ali Browning (Iowa City, Iowa), who gained national attention with her AAU play, and 6-foot Lauren Dudenhoeffer (Lee's Summit, Mo.), who is scheduled to redshirt this season. Taking advantage of the lessons

learned, along with the summer strength and conditioning program was 6-foot-5 sophomore Janae Burich, who led the Summit League and ranked among the national leaders in blocked shots. Burich will receive help inside from 6-foot-2 freshman Miki Stephenson, who played her high school basketball right across the Red River in Moorhead, Minnesota. North Dakota State opens the season at home with a pair of Western Athletic Conference opponents in November. That will prepare the Bison for a five-game road trip that ends in Brookings with two-time Summit League tourney champion South Dakota State on Dec. 4. "It will be a challenge – preparation will be key – especially handling the number of games we have on the road, said DeHoff. "The early games on the road at the Kansas tournament should do a nice job preparing us for our conference opener at SDSU in December. We need to have patience with young players and depth development early." Keeping everyone focused on the little things and improving with each day, each practice and each game is a priority for the Bison coaching staff. There's little things like taking care of the basketball, building team defense, and finishing the possession on both ends of the floor, that all add up at the end. "To be successful in Summit League, our experienced players need to elevate their games day-to-day," said DeHoff. "Our young bigs and depth need to be making significant growth over the course of conference play." DeHoff, along with the Trecker, Shea, Birkel and Plucker, will be keeping a watchful eye.

continued improvement by the aggressive 5-10 sophomore Dani DeGagne (Brandon, Manitoba) and continued inspiration from threepoint threat 5-11 sophomore Hannah Linz (Watkins, Minn.), who has her made way back to the court. Linz was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer in April, went through chemo in spring and summer, and is back fighting for additional minutes. Also in the backcourt are a pair of North Dakota products, 5-foot-7 freshman Kelsey Peltier (Dunseith, N.D.) and walk-on, 5-5 freshman Sam Lako (Hunter, N.D.) Trecker, a 5-9 forward from New Prague, Minn., has been the energizer and trend-setter on the squad over the past couple of seasons. "Whitney has been our best perimeter defender for the past two seasons," said DeHoff. "This season we are excited about Whitney’s development over the spring and summer to become a complete player. She also gives us great speed on the wing." Another senior, who is looking to shake off the rust and play, is Shea, a 6-foot forward from Plymouth, Minn., who has had her time on the court limited by frustrating knee injuries. She has persevered and values each minute on the floor, either in practice or a game. "Megan returns as a redshirt senior and has impressed the coaches greatly in the fall and during practice," said DeHoff. "Much of Megan’s turnaround is the trust she is showing in her abilities. She is showing us the basketball player and athlete she is capable of developing into this season." Then there's Plucker, a 5-11 junior from Parker, S.D., who's personality allows her to tackle a busy schedule that includes work with the Summit League and NDSU Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC). She is the president of the Bison SAAC and the Summit's

LISA BUE OVERSEAS

28

By ROCKY HULNE Sports Writer Austin (Minn.) Daily Herald AUSTIN, Minn.--While she may have played her last professional basketball game overseas, Austin grad Lisa Bue can always say she helped bring home a championship. Bue capped two years of playing overseas this past winter when she led Finland’s Lappeenranta Catz to a Division 1 championship. Bue was chosen MVP in that tournament. “It was probably one of the most amazing experiences in my basketball career,” said Bue, who played in the state basketball tournament for Austin High and went on to play college ball at North Dakota State. “You can’t really compare it to something in the states, because everything’s so different. To be a part of something that was such a big deal to this team is truly something I’ll never forget.” The season was a bit slow in Finland for Bue’s taste as her squad played just 30 games in the first five months. But the pace picked up in the playoffs as the Catz played 10 games in 21 days. “It was so busy and so crazy,” Bue said. “I take pride in my endurance as a player, where I can play forty minutes a game and play day after day. It worked out well for the type of player I am.” Bue, a 5-10 guard who played in Bosnia and Romania for four months each before playing in Finland last season, would play overseas again if a good contract and good location presents itself. But right now the economy is struggling in Europe and women’s basketball has been hit real hard. Bue has considered substitute teaching or getting a job, but she still hasn’t ruled out basketball. “I haven’t decided if I’m going to play next year,” she said. “It’s a career and I’ll do what’s best for me personally. If a good situation comes along, I’ll go for it.” The Finland town that Bue played in was a community about 70,000 and she said people always recognized her as a player in the streets and wished her good luck. Game nights got bigger as the playoffs rolled around for Bue, as all the other teams in town were knocked off and the Catz were the last ones playing. “It’s not like an NCAA tournament game, but the gym was packed and the atmosphere was great,” said Bue, who was the only American on her squad. Personally, Bue has grown a lot in her two years overseas. She left as a 22-year old who was a little sheltered and she returned finding herself very independent. “I’m the youngest child and people have always watched out for me and taken care of

North Dakota State's Lisa Bue (22) me. You get over there and you’re on your own and you grow up pretty fast,” Bue said. “I wouldn’t change it for anything. Not only for the basketball experience, which has been so much fun and it really is a universal game, but for my personal growth as well.” Bue also learned one important lesson about the difference from living in America and overseas — while the U.S. may be in a recession, things aren’t that bad. “Don’t take your life over here for granted, we have it pretty good here,” she said. “To be able to go and see some of the things I’ve done have been life changing and unforgettable.” Bue played four years at NDSU, where she finished her college career as the school’s with 1,245 points and she was the 2008 Summit League Player of the Year. Bue is Austin High School’s all-time leading scorer with 1,592 points. 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 having blond hair and blue eyes made her stick 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 little worried because when I was a little 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 native of Austin, Minn. “This has been my dream my entire life, to be paid to do what I love, and I still cannot believe it has actually came true.” Bue was named the 2008 Summit League Player of the Year after finishing third in the league in scoring with 16.9 points per game.

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 athletic director for development position in the NDSU athletic 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 continuing 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 still 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 timing 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 administration and President (Joseph A.) Chapman five years ago to see our program through the transition. I feel like it is mission accomplished,” she continued. “Now the table is set for the new coach and their staff to move the program forward in the new direction. 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-time 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 title 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 Athletics Hall of Fame in November 2004. She was a point guard for the Boilermakers and scored the program’s first basket. A native of Lowell, Indiana, Ruley was recognized as one of the South Shore Sports Legends in Northwest Indiana last fall. “Amy has led the women’s basketball program with unfailing professionalism and integrity.

She is the fifth player to earn NCC Player of the Year honors and was selected to the All-NCC first-time for the second time in her collegiate career. A mass communications major with a 3.67 grade point average, Even was the recipient of a NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

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 visiting players and coaches, nor was the genuine friendliness from the bleachers, motels and restaurants. No, it was something more than exciting games and an undefeated season and a national 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 time after time Saturday afternoon roaring with delight that we not only exist, our people excel. Written by Joe Dill, Editor, The Forum, following North Dakota State's 98-85 win over Portland State in the 1995 NCAA Division II national championship game.

North Dakota State University's athletic 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 athletic 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 athletic teams added an additional 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 springtime, Golden yellow in the fall. How the great high-arching heaven, Looks and Laughs upon it all.

2011 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 national 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 nationally 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 after 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 cities 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 Lynette ... 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 attachment, of family, of something special. They possessed the characteristics 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

32

Little 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 imagination of the Fargo-Moorhead community and the Upper Midwest. Those hearty women of yesteryear set the standard. The tradition, commonly referred to as

“Bison Basketball� is now passed down from generation to generation as well as from class to class. A century later, only the uniforms are different. However, the high standards of scholarship, athletics and good sportsmanship are still 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.

Sitting in the stands at the Hearnes Center in Columbia, Missouri, watching the women's basketball teams from Iowa State and Missouri do battle, Lynette Mund reflected back to her college days on the wooden court. So who is Lynette 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 national 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 national champions in women's basketball at all three NCAA Divisions, I (Connecticut), 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 competition. 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 afterwards, and I actually popped in the videotape of that championship game to watch a little bit to get that feeling of how awesome it was to play with my friends and just being successful.” It was an interesting cast of characters assembled by veteran head coach Amy Ruley, who has guided the Bison to five NCAA titles 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 positive. It was the quality of competitor,” said Ruley, who has directed the Bison into eight NCAA national 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 trusting each other and playing hard together,” said Ruley. From game to game, throughout the season, the focus was getting ready for the next game, the next opponent. That sharp focus was accented by this team's ability to laugh a little, hug a little and yes, even sing a little. Mund, who grew up on a farm in Milnor, North Dakota, kept the mood light at times 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. Often 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 communication major, would practice her interviewing skills. Both point guards, Linda Davis and Rhonda Birch, were nursing majors. Not only responsible for running the Bison transition offense and setting the tempo on defense, these two were also literally running around the FargoMoorhead area to classes, the library, to the lab, to practice and back to the library before calling it a day. Davis did well keeping her composure as “fiddlesticks” 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 exclamation point. “It's a hot hand, but also a lot of luck. I was in the right place at the right time, 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

2011 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

“Winning the national 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 left, I turned around and saw all of our parents hugging each other ... it still gives me chills.”

now. She teaches sixth grade social studies and reading at Monticello (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 Otto, 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 practices 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 practice,” said Kasey Morlock, who is married to former Bison football player Garth Tschetter. The regular season wasn't without its exciting moments. North Dakota State opened the campaign at always rugged Minnesota-Duluth, posting 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 outing 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 time for them, it wasn't just another activity for the day.” However getting to the championship game would be a chore after 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 awaiting 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 national championship.” It was while watching the consolation game where talk of a perfect season first came about. “At the time, I don't know if we realized what we were accomplishing. I think we were so focused on winning the next game that we continued to steamroll through the season with great success,” said Roufs. “I do remember our team watching the consolation game the night before the championship game and someone mentioned we could go undefeated. It had never been mentioned until that night. A perfect season wasn't the goal, it was to continually come out and be better than the competition.” And it was a competition 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 hitting 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 better and better as did our team. By the time 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 exciting time I will never forget. Coach Amy Ruley was and still is a great coach. I just wish she could have been there my freshman year.” Lori (Knetter) Robbins, NDSU forward, 1978-82. Robbins was inducted into the Bison Athletic 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 athletics gave to me was a group of friends that at times 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 national 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 Kristi 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 netted 15, while Birch added 10 and Davis 10. Roufs and Rademacher would go on to play on a fourth NCAA Division II national 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 time when I am upset, I just think about that experience, and I think, 'Gosh, how lucky I was,' ” said Mund.

LANG INSPIRATION TO MANY

2011 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

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

36

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 institutions who have excelled in the collegiate environment beyond their athletics pursuits with academic achievements and community involvement. Theresa, the daughter of Jim and Mary Lang, Austin, 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 left. 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-time 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 graduation ceremonies and received her bachelor's degree in business administration and finished with a 3.67 GPA. The honors were numerous for Lang. She was named 1998-99 Midwest Sports Channel's Most Inspirational 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-time Academic All-NCC pick. A member of the 1996 NCAA Division II National Champions, she was named to the 1998 Kodak Division II All-District VII and All-NCC first teams. Active 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 positive 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 until being forced to the sideline after 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 after diagnosis. After beginning chemotherapy treatments, Theresa returned campus to again provide support. She displayed a positive attitude and strong will in her battle with the illness. Her strength and strong faith proved to be an inspiration to the entire community.” Lang, who now is married and has the last name of Schmidt, is currently living and working in the Twin Cities.

“After church one Sunday, eleven year old Tessa congratulated me on our team's Saturday night victory. Her face gleamed with excitement and admiration as she recited play by play action 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 positive role model for girls like Tessa. I have been fortunate enough to develop relationships 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 athletics has served as a guide for young student athletes. Whenever young people ask me how much time I spent practicing each day to receive a college basketball scholarship, I tell them only half as much time as I spent studying for school. “Basketball has opened the door to a world of opportunities for me. It has provided my ticket to opportunities of higher education, trips around the country, and friendships that will last a lifetime. Basketball has literally shaped my life with principles of hard work, responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and dedication. I have received so much from the game of basketball that being a positive role model and opening the door of opportunity for young people like Tessa is the least that I can do.” Theresa Lang

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 national titles under her belt, she had 25 consecutive winning seasons — including 16 straight 20-win ledgers from 1986 to 2001.

SUMMIT League The Summit League

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE

Now in its 29th year as an NCAA Division I athletics conference, The Summit League continues its renaissance and ascent both on the playing field and in the classroom. Originally formed in 1982 as the Association of Mid-Continent Universities and later known as the Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League is in its fourth 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 athletic performances of all league student-athletes. Included in the plan was the league’s new name, the creation of a new image and the addition of three member institutions. The 10 Summit League member institutions 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 invitation 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 after the 2010-11 season. These member institutions pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes.

ball tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention 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 national ranking and became the first Summit League school to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in 2006. The league has produced five NCAA champions, four Olympic athletes, and several All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving, and cross country. Numerous professionals and several draft 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 selection. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-time 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 athletics.

NCAA Title Games Northern Kentucky Turns Back North Dakota State in Overtime

No. 2-ranked Northern Kentucky University outscored No. 3 North Dakota State University 14-5 in overtime 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 Convention Center. It was the firstever national title 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 shooting effort from the field in overtime, and made only 1-of-14 field goal attempts 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 bottom fell out offensively," said North Dakota State head coach Amy Ruley. The Bison are 5-3 in NCAA

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 Cottrell scored six of her gamehigh 23 points in the overtime period. Cottrell also pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds. Teammate Michele Tuchfarber, who joined Cottrell 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 Cottrell; 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 afternoon 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 emotions, was at the Bison Sports Arena. There is no way Jen Rademacher could have written a better 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 celebration over an outmatched Shippensburg University that gave NDSU the 1996 NCAA Division II Women's Basketball tournament title. In finishing 30-2, the Bison claimed their fourth national championship and fifth in six years. Their 104 points set an NCAA championship game record, eclipsing last year's 98 against Portland State. “Highlights,” Rademacher said, in repeating a question. “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 attempts of the game for a 63-35 advantage. In short, it was a dominating 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 Christian, and Shippensburg's Spencer.

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

2011 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Perfection is what the 1995 North Dakota State University women's basketball team will be remembered for after 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 title-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 entire season, also became the first women's team to win four Division II national titles. “That's a dream,” said Lynette 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

54

shooting 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 title 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 Lynette 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 national championship game at the Bison Sports Arena.

NDSU's Lynette 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 National 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 national champions.” The victory was even more special as it came in the Bison Sports Arena before 6,806 appreciative 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, stifling 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 halftime lead. Cal State-San Bernardino looked to be in a position to challenge in the second half, but the Bison picked up their intensity after 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 better 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 left. Steere, the championship's most outstanding player, tallied 13 of NDSU's 20 points during that stretch. The Coyotes' shooting 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 Defeating Delta State in 1993

WALTHAM, Mass. -- It took a year, but North Dakota State rid itself of the bitter 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 time, opening a 40-26 halftime 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

year,” NDSU coach Amy Ruley said. “Last year was a big motivator.” LaTanya Patty led Delta State (276) with 14 points. Leslie McKiernon scored 11 points and led the Lady Statesmen with 12 rebounds. “We were very positive 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 left 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 Lynette Mund's jump shot. NDSU took a 40-26 lead into halftime, 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.

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 national title. 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 tight defense, holding the Bison to only 34.5 percent shooting 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 waiting 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 halftime, but NDSU quickly drew to within five at 40-35 with 15:24 left 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 left. However, North Dakota State continually cut into the deficit and pulled to within 63-60 on a three-pointer by Susan Faus with just 15 seconds left in the game, and things seemed to be heading toward a possible overtime. McKiernon again came up big and connected on two crucial free throws with :03 left to build the lead back to five. The free throws proved to be more than just academic as Lynette 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 selections.

North Dakota State Impressive in Claiming First NCAA Crown

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. --Sophomore Jody Buck's 7-of-9 field goal shooting headed a patient offense that led North Dakota State University to an 81-74 victory over Southeast Missouri State University for the NCAA Division II title on March 23, 1991. Buck's 19 points led five North Dakota State players in double figures. The Bison led 38-34 at halftime, 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 -- setting 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 hefty 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 time after time

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 left. Southeast got no closer than five points in the final five minutes. Southeast Missouri led three times 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 netted 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 skeptics 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 titles. The poised and talented Broncos turned back first-time 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,” continued 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 Flett 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 liberties 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 shooting 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 left before the intermission. The Bison were on top for the last time 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 halftime. After 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 transition game is as quick as we've ever seen.”

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

2011 BISON WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

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 national titles 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 National 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 committed 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 opportunities. Now, years later, I still 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 vignette that highlighted the most exciting, important and memorable events in the NCAA’s history. The NCAA celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2006. In addition, 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 Cottrell, 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 transition into the Division I ranks. Morlock, who is NDSU’s all-time leading scorer with 2,233 points, played on three national title 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-time All-American. “I think the award is more about me being a part of a special time 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.

an estimated $114.2 million in research activities for the next survey. During the past decade, NDSU has seen approximately $150 million in major new construction, including such projects as the remodeling and expansion of the Memorial Union, expansion of the Wellness Center, Living-Learning Center East and West, Richard H. Barry Hall, Klai Hall and Niskanen Apartments. In addition, work continues on the $23 million greenhouse complex at the Agricultural Experiment Station main station, which will provide NDSU plant scientists with research facilities among the best in the country. The state’s original land-grant university, NDSU reaches out to North Dakota residents. For example, the NDSU Extension Service had 590,103 face-to-face contacts across the state during this past fiscal year, including 23,455 youth who participated in 4-H programs and activities. Bresciani, who was named NDSU’s 14th president on May 24 by the State Board of Higher Education, says a rare “window of op-

portunity” exists in North Dakota, and he has challenged the campus community to imagine how NDSU can help shape the state during the next century. “We all know that higher education is a powerful way to expand the economy of a state, diversify the tax base and create jobs,” Bresciani said during his 2010 State of the University Address. “While at the same time we honor our historic mission and focus on educating students, we also create the new knowledge that leads to new technologies that lead to new businesses that lead to new jobs.”

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 educational 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

orth Dakota State University is a national research institution acknowledged as a leader among its peers. With a growing student enrollment and annual research expenditures topping $110 million, NDSU has enjoyed a remarkable period of achievement. According to President Dean L. Bresciani, “NDSU commands a powerful niche. We are unique in how we successfully balance being a student focused, land-grant, research university. That makes us distinctive among our peers.” The momentum comes from all sectors of the energized, vibrant university. In fall 2010, more than 14,400 students chose to enroll in undergraduate and graduate programs, setting a record for the 11th year in a row. NDSU continues to excel in areas of innovative and technology-driven research. The National Science Foundation ranks NDSU 122nd in total research expenditures among 679 institutions across the country for fiscal 2008, with $115.5 million in research and development activities. Of the 554 research universities without a medical school, NDSU ranks 39th. For fiscal 2009, NDSU has reported

Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892.

NDSU now offers 46 doctoral programs, 66 master’s programs, an educational specialist degree and nine certificate 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 2010, the university had a total of 900 ranked faculty and lecturers. The NDSU’s primary academic campus includes 42 square blocks and 101 university buildings, 12 non-NDSU buildings, eight leased buildings and 10 leased spaces, with building, personal and outdoor property with a total value of $838 million. In all, NDSU is located on 18,746 acres of North Dakota land, which includes the main Agricultural Experiment Station at Fargo. There are 247 Agricultural Experiment Station buildings and storage facilities at the main station and eight research Extension centers across the state, and 18,488 acres dedicated to agricultural research. Dedicated to outreach efforts, the NDSU Extension Service conducts a rigorous education program in agriculture, human development, nutrition and youth and community development through its county, area and state staff. The NDSU Extension Service had 590,103 face-to-face contacts across the state during this past fiscal year, including 23,455 youth who participated in 4-H programs and activities. Members of NCAA Division I, the talented Bison athletic teams have enjoyed a long tradition of excellence. The student-athletes compete in first-class facilities – the Fargodome, Newman Outdoor Field, Ellig Sports Complex and Bison Sports Arena.

An energetic student body

The NDSU student body is a talented, dedicated and enthusiastic blend of international and ethnic backgrounds. During the fall of 2010, undergraduate and graduate students came from 52 North Dakota counties and 42 states. The university currently has more than 1,300 international students from 89 countries. NDSU has bilateral student exchange agreements with institutions in Australia, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, Latvia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. There also are memorandums of understanding with other countries such as Belize, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. NDSU students find it is easy to make friends and get involved with campus life. They can participate in more than 200 student organizations to develop personal and social relationships, explore new ideas, learn about people from around the world and augment their course work. The groups focus on academics, special interests, service, performing and visual arts, religion and recreation. There also are intercultural groups, honor societies, fraternities and sororities.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is often listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an All-American City by the National Civic League in 2000, Fargo-Moorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Seattle. About 187,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Counties. Accolades for the community come from a variety of sources. For instance, Fargo ranks ninth on the list of “Forbes Best Small Cities for Business,” and Fargo-Moorhead was named the most secure mid-sized city in the United States by Farmers Insurance. Children’s Health ranked Fargo-Moorhead as the third best place to raise children. The

list considered 30 different criteria, including crime and safety, education, economics, housing, cultural attractions and health. A report from the American Lung Association names Fargo one of the cleanest cities in the country. In addition, Bicycling Magazine places Fargo among the nation’s 50 most bikefriendly metropolitan areas.

A campus committed to the future Advances have come and continue on many fronts across the university, and the people of NDSU are optimistically looking to the challenges and opportunities of the future. As President Bresciani stated in his State of the University Address, “The future of our state is at a point of awakening – and our imagination is the only limit to the future. We are the ones poised to make that future a reality.”

Quality of life in the heartland is rarely matched. In its annual crime survey, CQ Press has ranked North Dakota the safest state in the nation in 11 of the last 15 years.

iscover the spirt of North Dakota and unlock the fascinating stories from the state’s legendary past. The glow of the breathtaking Northern Lights shines brightly on the paths taken by historical legends George Armstrong Custer, Theodore Roosevelt, Sitting Bull, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sakakawea along with the state’s contemporary heroes, Lawrence Welk, Peggy Lee, Roger Maris, Phil Jackson, Virgil Hill, Rick Helling, Darin Erstad and Travis Hafner. From the settlers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will continue 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 production of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the production of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, lentils, 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 often called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock production 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 cattle and hogs. The importance of cattle 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 national effort to provide more oil and gas from domestic 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 nation’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: n You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers). n You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization. n You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU. n You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled studentathletes. n You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families. n You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU. NOTE: Please remember that once you become a booster, you retain that identity indefinitely.

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: n 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. n Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend.

prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution. n 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 n 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. n You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU. n You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/her relatives or friends to visit campus. n You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp. n 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. n 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 n 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. n 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.

n 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). n You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls. n 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. n 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. n You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product. n You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete. n 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? n Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member. n 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. n 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. n 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.
