F

or the third consecutive year, DePaul was selected by the league’s head coaches as the BIG EAST women’s basketball preseason favorite. The Blue Demons shared the 2014-15 regularseason title with Seton Hall before edging the Pirates in the BIG EAST Tournament title game to claim their second consecutive postseason crown. DePaul totaled 80 points and eight first-place votes, followed in second by St. John’s with 66 points and one first-place nod. The Red Storm narrowly edged Villanova (64 points), which earned the remaining No. 1 vote. Creighton followed in fourth with 57 points, squeaking by fifth-place Seton Hall with 55 points. Xavier landed in sixth (37 points), followed by Georgetown (34), Butler (28), Marquette (15) and Providence (14). The Blue Demons earned the BIG EAST’s automatic berth to the 2015 NCAA Tournament where they advanced to the second round. DePaul is one of just seven programs to appear in each of the last 13 NCAA Tournaments and is joined in this elite category by Connecticut, Duke, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Stanford and Tennessee. The Blue Demons

finished 27-8 overall, 15-3 in BIG EAST play, and return a trio of starters from that squad. Head coach Doug Bruno enters his 30th season on DePaul’s sidelines. DePaul had the BIG EAST’s most points and the highest scoring average in 16 years in 2014-15, totaling 1,569 points over 18 games for an 87.2 average. The Blue Demons set single-season BIG EAST records for field goals attempted, three-pointers made and three-pointers attempted last year. In addition to these accolades, DePaul had its first BIG EAST Player of the Year in Brittany Hrynko, while rising senior Megan Podkowa was named the BIG EAST Tournament Most Outstanding Player. Hrynko went on to be selected 19th overall in the WNBA Draft, while Podkowa leads a group of 11 returning letterwinners. Backed by the highest scoring duo in the BIG EAST, St. John’s will aim for a return to the NCAA Tournament in 2016 after its string of five consecutive berths ended in 2014-15. The Red Storm went 23-11 overall last year, including 11-7 in BIG EAST play to finish fourth, and advanced to the third round of the postseason WNIT. Two-time All-American Aliyyah Handford was the BIG EAST’s leading scorer last year and was tabbed the BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year for 2015-16. St. John’s also boasted the conference’s No. 4 scorer in Danaejah Grant. Four starters are back for the Red Storm, with fourth-year head coach Joe Tartamella’s biggest task being replacing the program’s all-time leading rebounder, Amber Thompson, who graduated in May. Villanova ousted the Red Storm from the WNIT in the third round before the Wildcats were eliminated in overtime in the quarterfinals. Nova (22-14, 12-6 BIG EAST) finished third in the league standings last season and took DePaul down to the wire in the BIG EAST Tournament Semifinals after splitting the regular-season series with the reigning champs. The Wildcats were dealt a tough hand in terms of injuries last year as they suffered six single-digit early season losses, including three to teams

Notebook which later qualified for the NCAA Tournament, as their No. 2 scorer recovered from offseason surgery. The Wildcats won eight of their next 10 games to right the ship, and return a trio of starters from that squad. Caroline Coyer highlights that group after leading Nova in points, assists and steals in 2014-15, while ranking second in rebounds. Creighton (17-14, 10-8) qualified for the national postseason for the eighth consecutive year in 2014-15, earning an at-large bid to the WNIT. The Bluejays return four starters from that squad, highlighted by 2014 BIG EAST Player of the Year Marissa Janning. After a breakout year in 2013-14, Janning cooled off a bit as a junior, but still managed to rank among the league leaders in points, assists and shooting percentage and was unanimously named All-BIG EAST First Team. A contender for BIG EAST Freshman of the Year honors last season, Sydney Lamberty also returns for 14th-year head coach Jim Flanery. Lamberty was a six-time BIG EAST Freshman of the Week in 2014-15 and is Creighton’s No. 2 returning scorer (10.0) behind Janning. Seton Hall is coming off one of its most successful seasons in program history, claiming a share of its first BIG EAST regular-season crown and earning its first national ranking and NCAA Tournament berth in two decades. The Pirates went 28-6 overall and shared the regular-season title with DePaul at 15-3. The Hall has been on a roll in its two years under head coach Tony Bozzella, but the 2015 BIG EAST Coach of the Year will be tasked with replacing four starters from last season’s squad, including a pair of unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team selections. The Pirates will be tested early and often in the non-conference portion, with contests against local rivals and NCAA Tourney teams Princeton and Rutgers, along with a road trip to Georgia to name a few. The Musketeers started the season winning five of their first six games in 2014-15 and went on to improve upon their 2013-14 record by 10 wins, ranking ninth among all Division I teams in improvement. Xavier (18-15, 8-10) returns four starters from that team and 11 letterwinners overall, including leading scorer Briana Glover. Head coach Brian Neal enters his third season at Xavier. Second-year Georgetown head coach Natasha Adair has the luxury of all five starters back from 2014-15, including reigning BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Dorothy Adomako. Adomako was among the league leaders in scoring and rebounding last year, boasting team-high stats in both categories. The Hoyas went 4-27 overall and 2-16 in league play in Adair’s first season on the Hilltop. After being picked nearly unanimously for last place in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ Poll in 2014, the Bulldogs surprised everyone by going unbeaten in the

month of January for eight consecutive league wins. Butler earned wins over Villanova, Creighton and St. John’s during the swing, en route to a 10-8 finish, good enough for fifth place. The Bulldogs and second-year head coach Kurt Godlevske will hope for more of that magic in 2015-16 after the departure of their top two scorers. Godlevske’s offseason work has paid off in the r e c r u i t i n g department as the league’s highestranking rookie is on the Butler roster in BIG EAST Preseason Freshman of the Year Brittany Ward. Ward was ranked No. 34 nationally in her class and No. 6 at her position (HoopGurlz/ espnW). Second-year head coach Caroline Kieger has a fresh slate at Marquette (9-22, 4-14) in 2015-16 as the Golden Eagles are the youngest team in Division I. MU’s roster features just two juniors (one of which is new to the program), one sophomore and eight freshmen. The two returners in the lineup have career scoring averages of just 2.6 and 2.0 points per game, so the fate of the team may lie in the hands of the rookies. The Marquette newcomers, however, come to Milwaukee with quite a few accolades of their own, ranking among the best recruits in the country as well as an accomplished junior college player. Susan Robinson Fruchtl enters her fourth season at the helm in Friartown and will look to guide her squad to its first winning season since 2009-10. Robinson Fruchtl will be charged with filling the holes left by the graduation of her top two scorers and rebounders from the past two years. Coming off a 10-day training trip to France and Italy this summer, the Friars have a foreign flair which extends heavily into their lineup this season. Evi Iiskola (Finland), Allegra Botteghi (Italy), Yoyo Nogic (Serbia) and Clara Che (Spain) all represented their home countries in international competition during the offseason.

onference attendance leader and reigning champion DePaul will serve as host of the 2016 BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament, as approved by the league’s athletic directors and announced on Wednesday. The Conference postseason is set for March 5-8 at the Blue Demons’ McGrath-Phillips Arena, DePaul’s on-campus facility located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of downtown Chicago.

2016 BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament “We are very excited to bring the 2016 BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament to DePaul University, whose capabilities and long-standing commitment to women’s basketball will ensure a first-class presentation and an exciting in-arena experience for our student-athletes, coaches and fans,” said BIG EAST Commissioner Val Ackerman. “Our schools have decided to begin moving our tournament back to campus sites to take advantage of fan support in the host city, and as the BIG EAST leader in women’s basketball attendance for the past two years, DePaul is the ideal place to start.”

Reigning tourney champion Blue Demons have led the BIG EAST in attendance the last two seasons

Val Ackerman Commissioner

Since the BIG EAST Conference membership reconfigured prior to the 2013-14 season, DePaul has won both BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournaments while also leading the league in average home attendance. The Blue Demons have consistently been among the national leaders in fan support, ranking among the top 50 of all NCAA Division I teams in each of the last five years, including 201112 when their total season attendance eclipsed 50,000. “DePaul University is proud to host the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament,” said DePaul Athletics Director Jean Lenti Ponsetto. “DePaul Athletics has had the good fortune to host several NCAA women’s basketball events and looks forward to hosting the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament at McGrath-Phillips Arena this March. We are proud to showcase the City of Chicago and our Lincoln Park neighborhood. Coach Bruno and his staff have done a wonderful job marketing women’s basketball in Chicago as is evidenced by the terrific fan support from our faculty, staff and students, along with our Chicagoland neighbors and fans.” The BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament will return to an on-campus location for the first time since 2003. The league tourney was played on campus sites for the first 21 years (1983-2003), rotating across 10 different campuses, including the courts of five current members. The BIG EAST Tournament was moved to off-campus locations in 2004, remaining at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., through 2013. Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., has been the tourney home the last two seasons. The first round games of the 2014 BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament were played at McGrath-Phillips Arena before the final three rounds were moved to Allstate Arena. Housed in the Sullivan Athletic Center which opened in 2000, McGrath-Phillips Arena seats 3,000 and serves as the home floor for DePaul women’s basketball and volleyball. All 10 teams qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament, with the top six teams receiving first-round byes. DePaul won the 2014 conference crown as the No. 1 seed, sweeping the regular-season and tournament titles, while sharing the 2015 regular-season trophy with Seton Hall before topping the Pirates in the BIG EAST Tournament Final.

Notebook Aliyyah Handford is BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year

St.

John’s senior guard Aliyyah Handford was selected as the 2015-16 BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year by a vote of the league’s head coaches. Butler rookie forward Brittany Ward was tabbed BIG EAST Preseason Freshman of the Year. Handford is a two-time unanimous selection to the All-BIG EAST First Team and a two-time Honorable Mention All-American. The athletic guard led the league in scoring as a junior with a 19.3 points per game clip after listing fifth in the conference as a sophomore (16.7). Handford was also among the BIG EAST’s rebounding leaders in addition to her league-best 19 20-point performances last season. She enters her final campaign in Queens as the BIG EAST’s active leader in scoring (1,514 points) and steals (188), while ranking second among current players in rebounding (533). Ward is the highest ranked recruit (HoopGurlz/espnW) entering the BIG EAST this season, landing at No. 34 overall and No. 6 at her position (forward). The three-time all-state honoree finished her Pike High School career second all-time with 1,498 points while setting a school record with 1,000 career rebounds. The five-star recruit averaged 16.5 points, 10.9 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game as a senior, while also spending all four years on the academic honor roll. She is the lone Pike player in program history to eclipse quadruple digits in both points and rebounds. Handford earned preseason recognition along with teammate Danaejah Grant. Grant was one of seven unanimous Preseason All-BIG EAST Team selections. The senior guard combined with Handford as the highest scoring duo in the league, with Grant averaging 17.1 points per game to rank fourth overall. She was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection as a junior last season. Reigning BIG EAST Tournament and co-regular-season champion DePaul is the lone team with two unanimous preseason all-league picks in senior guard/forward Megan Podkowa and senior guard Chanise Jenkins. Podkowa enters her final season in Chicago as the BIG EAST’s active rebounding leader (553) and is just 10 points shy of 1,000 for her career. As a junior, Podkowa was named the BIG EAST Tournament Most Outstanding Player, capping her third year under head coach Doug Bruno off in emphatic fashion with five of her best performances over the final six games of 2014-15. Jenkins joined Podkowa and Grant on the All-BIG EAST Second Team following the 2014-15 season, and will see an increased role in 2015-16 following the graduation of fellow guard and BIG EAST Player of the Year Brittany Hrynko. Jenkins enters her final season among the league’s active career leaders in points (fourth), assists (first) and steals (third), and is coming off a summer in which she was a member of gold-medal winning Team USA at the World University Games. Handford is one of three returning All-BIG EAST First Team players from 2014-15 along with unanimous Preseason All-BIG EAST Team honorees Caroline Coyer of Villanova and Marissa Janning of Creighton. Coyer also gained international experience this summer as a member of the silver-medal winning Team USA at the Pan American Games. As a junior, Coyer lead Villanova in scoring (13.4 PPG) and assists (162) while ranking 10th nationally in assist-turnover ratio (2.7). Janning enters her final season in Omaha with redemption on her mind after being voted the 2014

BIG EAST Player of the Year and the 2014-15 Preseason BIG EAST Player of the Year but coming up shy with the major honor in 2015. Despite the lack of hardware, she still finished among the league leaders in points, assists and shooting percentage. Janning has led Creighton in scoring in each of her three years in Omaha and already ranks among the program’s all-time points leaders. Janning was joined on the Preseason All-BIG EAST Team by fellow Bluejay Sydney Lamberty. Lamberty was a six-time BIG EAST Freshman of the Week in 2014-15 and is Creighton’s No. 2 returning scorer (10.0) behind Janning. The sophomore guard was among the BIG EAST leaders in three-point shooting with her 38.5-percent clip. Reigning BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Dorothy Adomako was an uncontested Preseason All-BIG EAST pick entering her sophomore year after ranking among the conference leaders in scoring Brittany Ward and rebounding as a rookie. Adomako totaled eight Butler double-doubles during her freshman campaign, ranking second among all BIG EAST players, while her nine double-digit rebounding performances listed third. She was a five-time BIG EAST Freshman of the Week and became Georgetown’s fifth Freshman of the Year. Seton Hall’s Tabatha Richardson-Smith rounds out the list of unanimous Preseason All-BIG EAST Team selections. As a junior last season, Richardson-Smith was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team for the second straight year and helped lead the Pirates to one of their best seasons in program history. The senior forward finished 2014-15 ranked third in the BIG EAST in scoring (17.8), eighth in rebounding (6.8), second in steals (2.4) and as the league leader in three-pointers per game (2.8). Providence junior guard Sarah Beal represents the Friars on the Preseason All-BIG EAST Team. Beal had a shortened sophomore campaign after suffering an injury and played in just one game after the calendar changed to 2015. Through 14 games, the guard averaged 10.2 points and 4.7 assists, highlighted by a 24-point, six-assist showing against cross-city rival Brown. Senior forward Briana Glover led Xavier in scoring last season with a 10.8 average by way of the BIG EAST’s thirdbest shooting percentage (.522). Glover becomes the first Musketeers to garner Preseason All-BIG EAST Team honors following a 2014-15 season in which she Aliyyah started 31 games. Handford Butler’s Blaire Langlois rounds out the list of St. John’s Preseason All-BIG EAST honorees. Langlois is the Bulldogs’ top returning scorer (11.2) and assistprovider (69). The senior guard’s 2014-15 campaign was highlighted by a 32-point performance at Georgetown, which included a program-record nine three-pointers. She ended her season with three consecutive double-digit scoring performances, including 24 points against Villanova in the BIG EAST Tournament.

All 10 BIG EAST teams will appear on at least three nationally televised games during regular-season play across the FOX Sports family of networks, while an additional two games will be featured on CBS Sports Network. For the first time since it launched in 2014, the BIG EAST Digital Network (BEDN) will air all women’s basketball games during conference play that are not scheduled for a television broadcast. Select non-conference tilts will also be featured, more than doubling the BEDN broadcast total from a season ago, as at least 75 women’s basketball games

are scheduled to air. For the third consecutive year, FS1 and FS2 will provide coverage of the BIG EAST Tournament, with this season’s event moving to McGrath-Phillips Arena at DePaul. FS2 will air the quarterfinal round on March 6, with games set for 1, 3:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. (ET). FS1 picks up the remainder of the tournament, with the semifinals on March 7 slated for 4 and 6:30 p.m., and the championship game set to tip off at 8 p.m. on March 8. The BIG EAST Digital Network will live stream both first round games on March 7, with tip times not yet determined. The Conference is in the third year of its multi-year contract with FOX Sports, which has exclusive television rights to all BIG EAST competitions. Through its first two seasons as a 10-team league, four women’s basketball teams have earned NCAA Championship berths, including the first by Seton Hall (2015) in 20 years, and a Sweet 16 run by DePaul (2014). Nine teams have qualified for the WNIT since conference reconfiguration, with Villanova advancing to the quarterfinals this past season.

The BIG EAST Conference

T

he BIG EAST Conference will forge ahead in 2015-16 for its third year in its current configuration. Founded by Dave Gavitt in 1979, the BIG EAST reorganized in 2013, entering a new era by returning to its basketball-focused heritage. The league’s 10 member schools today—Butler University, Creighton University, DePaul University, Georgetown University, Marquette University, Providence College, St. John’s University, Seton Hall University, Villanova University, and Xavier University—maintain an unyielding commitment to academic integrity, athletic excellence and community service. Gavitt, the former Providence College men’s basketball coach and athletic director, made the BIG EAST Conference a reality in May of 1979. Providence, St. John’s, Georgetown, Syracuse, Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College formed the original seven-school alliance, and within the span of just a few years the conference had become a national powerhouse in men’s basketball. While the composition of the BIG EAST Dave Gavitt evolved over the next three decades, the focus of its schools did not waver, reflecting a tradition of broad-based programs led by administrators and coaches who emphasize academic strength and fair play. In December of 2012, the seven BIG EAST schools that do not compete in FBS football—DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Villanova— announced their intention to separate from the conference’s football-playing schools and form an independent association. On March 20, 2013, the seven schools reached an agreement that enabled them to retain the BIG EAST name and assume the old conference’s long-term agreement with Madison Square Garden to host the BIG EAST Men’s Basketball Tournament, one of the premier events in college athletics. The schools also announced the addition of three distinguished institutions sharing the same academic and athletic values—Butler University, Creighton University and Xavier University—and forged a landmark, long-term broadcast partnership with FOX Sports. To complete the transformation, the

12

BIG EAST moved its headquarters from its original location in Providence, R.I., to midtown Manhattan in New York City. The BIG EAST’s new era officially began on July 1, 2013, its effective date as the NCAA’s 32nd Division I conference. Val Ackerman, who previously served as founding President of the WNBA, President of USA Basketball and U.S. representative to the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), was named fifth Commissioner of the BIG EAST in conjunction with the conference’s 2013 reconfiguration. Under her leadership, the BIG EAST has sought to maintain its reputation for excellence in intercollegiate athletics and has remained influential on the national landscape, with many conference and school administrators now serving on key NCAA committees. Since its inception in 1979, the BIG EAST has been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion, particularly television, and the conference’s current relationship with FOX Sports

Val Ackerman allows that tradition to continue. The BIG EAST has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with FOX Sports and its national cable network, FOX Sports 1, since the 201314 academic year, the first under the current multi-year agreement. FOX’s wall-to-wall coverage of BIG EAST men’s basketball includes complete coverage of all regular season games on FOX, FS1, FS2 and Fox Regional

BIG EAST Women’s Basketball


Forging Ahead in 2015-16 Networks, as well as the BIG EAST Tournament at Madison Square Garden, college basketball’s longest-running postseason basketball conference tourney held at the same venue. The BIG EAST and FOX also have established an annual five-game New Year’s Marathon at the beginning of conference play. FOX Sports platforms also carry complete coverage of the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball Tournament and selected coverage of other Olympic sport championships. BIG EAST institutions are located in seven of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. The BIG EAST has also increased the visibility of its member school programs with the expansion of the BIG EAST Digital Network (BEDN). When the conference launched BEDN in 2014-15, the league became the first collegiate conference to be hosted on the FOX Sports mobile platform, FOX Sports Go, the app that provides live streaming of FOX Sports content. BEDN will carry 225 live events in 2015-16, with an emphasis on women’s basketball and Olympic sport regular season and championship events. BIG EAST Serves launched in 2014 as the conference’s platform to align the academic, health, leadership and service missions of the ten member institutions. Initiatives housed under the BIG EAST Serves umbrella reflect the conference’s commitment to developing the complete BIG EAST student-athlete and making a positive contribution to the campus communities of its member schools and to New York City, the conference’s headquarters. BIG EAST student-athletes boast high graduation rates, and the league has always been able to proudly say that many of its best students are also its best athletes. Alex Barlow, the starting guard for the Butler men’s basketball team that earned a 2014-15 NCAA bid, won the Senior CLASS Award in his sport for excellence in classroom, community, character and competition. He also won the BIG EAST men’s basketball scholar-athlete award for the second year in a row. Katrina Coogan of Georgetown, the 2015 conference women’s cross country champion, was a CoSIDA Academic All-American and seven-time cross country and track and field All-American. In 2014-15, BIG EAST teams earned a total of 31 NCAA bids. Two teams won national championships: Connecticut, an associate member in field hockey, won its second straight NCAA crown, and Denver, an associate member in men’s lacrosse, also captured an NCAA title, the first national champion not from the East Coast in that sport. Seven different national

2015-16 MEDIA GUIDE

postseason championships saw multiple BIG EAST teams participate, including six teams in men’s basketball. BIG EAST schools produced 12 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, including five in soccer (three male, two female). Current BIG EAST men’s basketball programs have enjoyed extraordinary success over the years. Georgetown, Marquette and Villanova have won the national championship, and DePaul, Providence, St. John’s and Seton Hall have all made it to the Final Four. The BIG EAST placed three men’s basketball teams in the Final Four in 1985—Georgetown, St. John’s and Villanova—the only time this has occurred in NCAA history. Over the past 12 years, Butler, Georgetown, Marquette and Villanova have each reached the Final Four, with Butler making two trips. Xavier has also advanced to the Elite Eight twice and the Sweet 16 four other times. BIG EAST student-athletes have achieved recent success in other sports, as well. A BIG EAST team has won the NCAA women’s cross country championship four of the last six years (Villanova won twice; Providence and Georgetown once), with one runner-up finish (Providence). Creighton’s men’s soccer team has reached the NCAA College Cup in two of the past four seasons, with the Providence men advancing to the semifinals in 2014. In the 36 years since the original league opened its doors, BIG EAST teams have won 38 national championships in eight different sports. The conference crowned champions in 22 sports in the 2014-15 academic year, with 140 student-athletes winning individual national titles.

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Who’s Gone

After being picked nearly unanimously for last place in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ Poll in 2014, the Bulldogs surprised everyone by going unbeaten in the month of January for eight consecutive league wins. Butler earned wins over Villanova, Creighton and St. John’s during the swing, en route to a 10-8 finish, good enough for fifth place. The Bulldogs and second-year head coach Kurt Godlevske will hope for more of that magic in 2015-16 after the departure of their top two scorers.

Butler loses a pair of starters and its top two scorers in Loryn Goodwin and Ijeoma Uchendu. Goodwin averaged a team-high 15.6 points per game and totaled a team-best 78 assists over 23 games, while Uchendu was the BIG EAST’s No. 2 rebounder at 10.3 boards per game while chipping in 14.6 points per contest.

Who’s Returning D id Y o u K n o w ? The Bulldogs play their home games in historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, which, at the time of construction in 1928, was the largest basketball arena in the United States. Hinkle underwent renovations last summer which included remodeled coaching offices, chair-back seating and a new scoreboard.

Kit Stetzel Assistant Sports Information Director

Belle Obert, who spent four years with the Butler volleyball team, was granted an additional year of eligibility and returns to the Bulldog basketball squad after leading the BIG EAST with 2.6 blocks per game and ranking third with 7.5 rebounds per contest. Blaire Langlois and Sydney Buck, who both started all 30 games for Butler in 2014-15, are back in Indianapolis in 2015-16 as the top two returning scorers.

Storylines In his first season at the helm, head coach Kurt Godlevske had to replace all five starters and had just five returning letterwinners on his roster. After a slow start, Butler found its groove, causing a meteoric rise up the RPI, jumping over 200 spots between December and February. The momentum would not sustain as the Bulldogs dropped six of their final eight regular-season games, but they still managed a fifth-place finish in the league. Godlevske will be charged once again with restocking the shelves after the departure of their top two scorers. He has gotten off to a good start, however, with the nation’s No. 34 ranked newcomer in forward Brittany Ward. With two spots open in the starting rotation, Ward will make a bid for one right from the jump.

News & Notes The BIG Picture After being voted BIG EAST Player of the Year as a sophomore in her first season in the league, Marissa Janning had all eyes on her as a junior in 2014-15. She was named Preseason Player of the Year and did not disappoint – finishing among the league leaders in points, assists and shooting percentage. Despite not taking the big trophy home at the end of the season, the unanimous All-BIG EAST selection will get one more shot at becoming just the seventh player in conference history to earn multiple BIG EAST Player of the Year plaudits as she returns for her senior season.

Who’s Returning Head coach Jim Flanery welcomes back four starters in 2015-16 as Janning is joined by Sydney Lamberty, Brianna Rollerson and MC McGrory. Lamberty was a Freshman of the Year candidate and sixtime Freshman of the Week in 2014-15, while

Janning has the ability to etch her name in the BIG EAST record book if she repeats her sophomore year numbers, despite just three years in the league.

Who’s Gone Creighton’s biggest loss comes with the graduation of Alexis Akin-Otiko. Akin-Otiko had a breakout senior season, voted BIG EAST Most Improved Player after averaging 13.1 points and 6.3 rebounds, both of which ranked second on the team.

Storylines Creighton played not only the toughest nonconference schedule by any BIG EAST team, but one of the toughest in the country in 2014-15. Entering his 14th year as head coach, Jim Flanery didn’t make it any easier in 2015-16, with a trio of NCAA Tournament squads on the docket so far, including a season-opening date with Wichita State. Flanery’s team this season is much more experienced than last, with Player of the Year contender Marissa Janning aiming to join the ranks of names like Moore, Taurasi, Diggins and Lobo as a repeat BIG EAST Player of the Year. Flanery has the luxury of newcomers with the ability to contend for playing time as well, highlighted by Iowa Player of the Year Audrey Faber of Dowling Catholic.

Doug Bruno Head Coach

News & Notes The BIG Picture The Blue Demons have thrived since the BIG EAST realigned to 10 teams, winning both regular-season and tournament crowns since the reconfiguration. DePaul is one of just seven programs to appear in each of the last 13 NCAA Tournaments. DePaul is joined in this elite category by Connecticut, Duke, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Stanford and Tennessee. Three starters from last year’s team, which advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, are back in 2015-16, with one big departure in All-American, WNBA draft pick and 2015 BIG EAST Player of the Year Brittany Hrynko.

Who’s Returning The 2015 BIG EAST Tournament Most Outstanding Player Megan Podkowa returns for her senior year and is one of three starters back for DePaul. Podkowa had five of her strongest showings over the final six games last season, including a 23-point performance in the NCAA Tournament First Round. Guards Jessica January and Chanise Jenkins also highlight the returning class, both garnering All-BIG EAST honors in 2014-15. Jenkins spent the summer representing Team USA at the World University Games.

Who’s Gone One of the most remarkable players in DePaul

history, Brittany Hrynko graduated with nearly 2,000 career points, to go along with over 500 rebounds, nearly 700 assists and over 300 steals. She etched her name in the BIG EAST regular-season record book throughout her final campaign in Chicago which was highlighted by BIG EAST Player of the Year plaudits and hearing her name called 19th at the 2015 WNBA Draft. Despite suffering a season-ending injury just 14 games in last season, the Blue Demons will also miss stellar three-point shooter Megan Rogowski, along with Rogowski’s replacement in the starting five last year, Centrese McGee.

Storylines Head coach Doug Bruno enters his 30th season on the sidelines at DePaul and welcomes back 11 letterwinners, including three starters, from 2014-15. Bruno’s biggest task will be replacing one of the most exciting players to ever don a Blue Demon jersey in Brittany Hrynko. After coming off the bench in her first two collegiate games as a freshman, Hrynko started every game since, amassing the fifth-most points in DePaul history while setting a program standard for assists. True to form, the Blue Demons will play a difficult non-conference schedule with matchups against Connecticut, Notre Dame, Texas A&M and Northwestern among the challenges. DePaul, which has led the BIG EAST in attendance in each of the last two seasons, was named the host of the 2016 BIG EAST Tournament, as the conference postseason returns to a campus location for the first time since 2003.

Natasha Adair Head Coach

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Who’s Gone

Head coach Natasha Adair enters her second season on the Hilltop. Adair was charged with changing the culture of the historic program when she took the reins prior to the 2014-15 season, and with 12 letterwinners returning this year, the first positive shift in Washington, D.C., is tangible. The Hoyas are the only team in the BIG EAST with all five starters returning in 201516, but Coach Adair will need more production out of that experienced group after losing their final 15 games of last season.

Only two players who stepped on the court last year are no longer on the roster: Chenya Sealey (2 GP, 1.5 PPG) and Justyce Swang (24 GP, 2.2 PPG).

Who’s Returning

D id Y o u K n o w ? Georgetown broke ground on land adjacent to McDonough Arena in the fall where the future Thompson Athletics Center will stand. Among many other features, the $62 million project will include practice courts, team meeting rooms and women’s basketball coaches’ offices.

Barbara Barnes Director of Sports Information

In a word: everyone. Highlighting the returners for Georgetown is 2015 BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Dorothy Adomako. Adomako was among the league leaders in scoring and rebounding last year, boasting team-high stats in both categories. Fellow 30-game starter Dominique Vitalis was the Hoyas’ most accurate shooter last season at .467, while seasoned guard Katie McCormick joins Vitalis as one of five seniors on the roster.

Storylines Head coach Natasha Adair seems to have brought stability to the Hilltop after just one season at the helm. The Hoyas now need to turn that stability into victories, as Georgetown hasn’t had a winning season since 2011-12. A lot of that success will rest on the shoulders of sophomore Dorothy Adomako, who became the second consecutive Georgetown player to earn BIG EAST Freshman of the Year plaudits. GU also benefits from fifth-year player Jasmine Jackson, who spent her first two seasons at Georgetown before transferring to George Mason. Jackson is immediately eligible as a graduate student. The Hoyas won two of their first three last season, but won just two more over the next 28 games to fall to 4-27 on the season.

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Who’s Gone

Second-year head coach Carolyn Kieger has the youngest team in the nation in 2015-16, with a roster featuring two juniors (one of which is new to the program), one sophomore and eight freshmen. The two returners in the lineup have career scoring averages of just 2.6 and 2.0 points per game, so the fate of the team may lie in the hands of the rookies. The Marquette newcomers, however, come to Milwaukee with quite a few accolades of their own, ranking among the best recruits in the country as well as an accomplished junior college player. MU earned notable regular-season wins over Vanderbilt and a nationally ranked Seton Hall team last year, advancing to the BIG EAST Tournament Quarterfinals before bowing out to the Pirates.

All five starters will need to be replaced for the Golden Eagles, including All-BIG EAST Second Team selection and 1,000-point scorer Arlesia Morse who graduated in May. BIG EAST AllFreshman Team picks Kenisha Bell and Tia Elbert left the program during the offseason, while fellow starters Cristina Bigica and Apiew Ojulu also graduated.

Who’s Returning

Storylines With the youngest team in Division I, Coach Kieger will have the challenge of adjusting her youthful lineup to the pace and style of the college game. On the flip side, the new roster is completely Kieger’s to mold and influence. The blank slate could prove beneficial for the league’s youngest head coach, who went 9-22 overall and 4-14 in BIG EAST play. Chelsey Gibson is a junior college transfer who was tabbed a WBCA JUCO AllAmerican, while Allazia Blockton (No. 91), Natisha Hiedeman (No. 74) and Amani Wilborn (No. 84) were all top-100 recruits and hail from the state of Wisconsin.

Sophomore Shantelle Valentine and McKayla Yentz are the lone letterwinners back in 2015-16. Valentine played in 31 games last year, starting seven, and averaged 2.6 points per game. Yentz is the most veteran of the bunch as a junior, with 38 career games under her belt, including 27 last year.

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Head Coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl enters her fourth season in Friartown and will look to guide her squad to its first winning season since 2009-10. Providence has an influx of five newcomers, all of which could be thrust into the lineup at any time and be counted on to contribute significantly. The Friars took an offseason trip overseas during which Coach Robinson Fruchtl got a glimpse of who could fill the shoes of her top scorers and rebounders from the past two years, both of which graduated in May.

Who’s Returning D id Y o u K n o w ? Four of Providence’s expected key contributors in 2015-16 have significant overseas playing experience. Evi Iiskola (Finland), Allegra Botteghi (Italy), Yoyo Nogic (Serbia) and Clara Che (Spain) all represented their home countries in international competition during the offseason.

The Friars hope junior Sarah Beal can remain healthy as the gamechanging point guard’s past two seasons have been cut short due to injury. Beal was a unanimous All-BIG EAST Freshman Team selection in 2013-14 and was an honorable mention preseason allleague pick in 2014-15 but was limited to just three conference contests as a sophomore. Junior Aliyah Miller, who saw action in 18 games last season, has the potential to be a power in the post, while senior Evi Iiskola has been a consistent contributor in each of the last three seasons.

Sophomore Alison Lewis also should play a large role for the Friars on the perimeter. She gained valuable experience as a rookie in 2014-15, and can prove to be a valuable asset on both ends of the floor, as she has the ability to develop into one of the league’s top defenders.

Who’s Gone

Providence’s leading scorer in 2013-14 and 201415 Tori Rule along with top rebounder and No. 2 scorer for the past two seasons Alexis Harris both graduated in May. Rule was the latest Friar to eclipse the 1,000-career point mark, totaling 1,271 over 106 games, including an 11.2 scoring average over 56 career BIG EAST contests. Harris graduated among the top rebounders in PC history despite coming off the bench in her first two seasons.

Storylines

Coming off a 10-day training trip to France and Italy this summer, the Friars have a foreign flair which extends heavily into their lineup this season. Evi Iiskola (Finland), Allegra Botteghi (Italy), Yoyo Nogic (Serbia) and Clara Che (Spain) all represented their home countries in international competition during the offseason, while also helping the Friars to a successful overseas trip in August. Newcomers Nogic and Che could be counted on out of the gate in 2015, while fellow rookies Erica Meyer and Rachel Aho could help fill the gap in the post left by Alexis Harris. Local product Maddie Jolin rounds out the list of newcomers and will give the Friars with another solid, athletic guard on the perimeter.

Joe Tartamella Head Coach

News & Notes The BIG Picture Picked second in the 2014-15 preseason coaches’ poll, the Red Storm came up a bit shy last year, falling in the BIG EAST Tournament Semifinals as a No. 4 seed and missing the chance to earn their sixth consecutive NCAA Championship berth. St. John’s, which advanced to the third round of the WNIT, returns four of five starters this season and features one of the most exciting backcourts in the BIG EAST. Joe Tartamella enters his fourth season as head coach of the Red Storm and 12th year with the program overall.

Who’s Returning D id Y o u K n o w ? Head coach Joe Tartamella added some BIG EAST ties to the St. John’s sidelines during the offseason as a pair of former All-BIG EAST performers signed on as assistant coaches. Tasha Pointer (Rutgers, 2001) and Da’Shena Stevens (St. John’s, 2012) were added to Tartamella’s staff in the summer. The pair accounted for nearly 3,000 career points and eight All-BIG EAST certificates.

The Red Storm have the luxury of four out of five starters returning in 2015-16, including unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team selection Aliyyah Handford. The twotime All-American led the BIG EAST in scoring last year and is one of the most exciting players in the league to watch. Fellow senior Danaejah Grant, who ranked second on the team in scoring, had a breakout year in 201415, earning all-league honors. Low-post presence Jade Walker and speedy guard Aaliyah Lewis,

who combined for 67 starts last year, also return for the Red Storm.

Who’s Gone St. John’s all-time leading rebounder Amber Thompson graduated in May, ranking ninth in BIG EAST history with 568 boards in league play. Thompson started all but one game over the last two years and garnered All-BIG EAST Honorable Mention plaudits in 2014-15.

Storylines The Red Storm are arguably one of the most athletic and exciting teams to watch, with a backcourt one-two punch of All-American Aliyyah Handford and breakout scorer Danaejah Grant. The pair made up the BIG EAST’s highest scoring duo in the league last year, with Handford at No. 1 in points per game and Grant at No. 4. St. John’s led the league in rebounding last year, but that was off the shoulders of Amber Thompson who graduated in May. Thompson had an intimidating post presence, leading the league in boards and ranking second in blocks. St. John’s biggest challenge will be to fill that gap and increase its overall depth. The Red Storm starters accounted for 83 percent of the minutes played last season, with some of its key losses the result of the absence of a starter with minimal production out of the replacements. Newcomers Jordan Agustus and Akina Wellere, both ranked nationally at their respective positions, each have the ability to either jump into the first five or provide substantial bench options for Coach Tartamella.

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Who’s Gone

The Pirates are coming off their best season in two decades and one that will surely go down in program history. Alabama transfer Daisha Simmons helped lead The Hall to the Promised Land in her lone season in South Orange, but now comes the task of filling her shoes, along with four-year starter Ka-Deidre Simmons. Seton Hall doesn’t have an easy road in the non-conference portion of its season as six of its scheduled opponents made national postseason appearances in 2015. The Pirates have a battle for New Jersey during their very first week, facing a pair of NCAA Tournament teams in Rutgers (Nov. 16) and Princeton (Nov. 19) both at Walsh Gym and airing on FS2.

The Pirates had one of the best backcourts in the league in 2014-15 by way of Daisha and Ka-Deidre Simmons. Daisha was tabbed BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 and was named an honorable mention All-American along with Ka-Deidre. The pair amassed over 1,100 points, 320 assists and 150 steals in their one season together in South Orange. Additionally, bruising inside force Janee Johnson also graduated in May.

Who’s Returning All eyes will be on senior Tabatha Richardson-Smith in 2015-16. The 2014 BIG EAST Most Improved Player has finished No. 3 in the league in scoring in each of the last two years and earned All-BIG EAST Second Team plaudits in each season. She’s the lone starter back for The Hall, which made its first NCAA appearance in 20 years in 2015.

Storylines The Pirates have been on a roll since Bozzella took over two years ago. The Hall boasts backto-back national postseason appearances under Bozzella, including 2014’s trip to the WNIT Sweet 16 and the Pirates’ first NCAA Tournament berth in two decades last season. Veteran leadership and a plethora of experience helped in those first two years, but 2015-16 is a little bit more unclear as only one starter from last season’s squad returns. Thankfully for Bozzella, however, that starter is Tabatha Richardson-Smith, who ranked third in the BIG EAST in scoring in each of the last two years. Once again, a transfer with a familiar last name could help save the day in the former Florida State guard Shakena Richardson. Fellow transfer Aleesha Powell was an All-MAAC player at Iona and is now eligible after sitting out last season.

News & Notes The BIG Picture The Wildcats were dealt a tough hand in terms of injuries last year as Villanova suffered six single-digit early season losses, including three to teams which later qualified for the NCAA Tournament, as No. 2 scorer Emily Leer recovered from offseason surgery. With Leer back, Nova won eight of their next 10 and finished third in the BIG EAST at 12-6. The Wildcats made a run to the WNIT Quarterfinals before falling in overtime, and welcome back a trio of starters from that squad, including sisters Caroline and Katherine Coyer.

Who’s Returning D id Y o u K n o w ? The Wildcats led the nation in two statistical categories in 2014-15: fewest turnovers per game (8.5) and assistturnover ratio (1.78).

All-BIG EAST First Team selection Caroline Coyer highlights Villanova’s returners. The senior started every game for the Wildcats last year, leading Nova in points, assists and steals while listing second in rebounds. She enters her final season in a Wildcat uniform 36 points shy of 1,000. Coyer already ranks 16th all-time in total assists and will likely climb the Villanova career points chart as well. All-Freshman Team pick Alex Louin played in all 36 games as a rookie, while Katherine Coyer

capped her season by averaging over 12 points per game throughout the WNIT, both of which will assist Caroline Coyer in the backcourt. Senior forward Kavunaa Edwards started 22 games last year and listed third on the team in rebounding.

Who’s Gone The Wildcats lose a trio of big bodies in center Emily Leer and forwards Taylor Holeman and Lauren Burford. The group combined for over 1,000 career rebounds and nearly 400 games played. Leer and Burford had two of the best three-point ranges for non-guards in the league, both ranking among the BIG EAST leaders in threepoint percentage, while Holeman’s 5.8 boards per game led the team.

Storylines Senior Caroline Coyer is a legitimate contender for BIG EAST Player of the Year in 2015-16 following a junior season which saw her get better week in and week out. She earned a spot on the All-BIG EAST First Team and was later selected to play for Team USA at the Pan American Games. Villanova is coming off backto-back WNIT appearances, but the goal, like all other teams, is to reach the NCAAs. Nova last went to the Big Dance in 2013 and has done so 10 times under 37-year head coach Harry Perretta.

News & Notes The BIG Picture

Who’s Gone

The Musketeers started the season winning five of their first six games in 2014-15 and went on to improve upon their 2013-14 record by 10 wins, ranking ninth among all Division I teams in improvement. XU earned notable conference wins over Creighton and St. John’s during the regular season and also went on to collect its first BIG EAST Tournament victory. With the bulk of that team returning in 2015-16, third-year head coach Brian Neal hopes the ball keeps rolling in that winning direction.

Maleeka Kynard is the one key contributor not on the roster this year. Kynard spent last season with the Musketeers after the previous three at Ohio State. During her one season in Cincinnati, Kynard averaged 8.9 points over 25 games to rank third on the team.

Who’s Returning D id Y o u K n o w ? Xavier established the “Lauren Hill Tipoff Classic” beginning this season, honoring the late Lauren Hill. Xavier’s Cintas Center was where cancer-stricken Hill made her courageous debut for Mount St. Joseph, scoring the first points of the 2014-15 college basketball season.

Greg Lautzenheiser Assistant Director Of Athletic Communications

The Musketeers have the luxury of only one key player lost from 2014-15, so returners are aplenty. Highlighting that group include leading scorer Briana Glover, leading rebounding Leah Schaefer and No. 2 scorer Raeshaun Gaffney.

Storylines After a 10-win improvement from a year ago, the Musketeers will look to increase the number in that column even more in 2015-16. Eight out of nine of their top scorers are back this year, including Briana Glover who led the squad at 11.0 points per game. Despite the wealth of experience back, one newcomer will try to make some noise during her first season in Imani Partlow. The 6-1 guard averaged 18.5 points and 9.5 rebounds out of Winton Woods High School.
