overview 2007-08season outlook As Head Coach Candace White-Whitaker begins her first full season in charge of the UMKC women’s basketball program, there is a palpable excitement in the air. The Kangaroos return three starters from last season’s team - nine letterwinners overall - and have added an incoming class that was ranked no. 38 in the nation by the Dan Olson Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. “We’re really excited about the returners we have coming back and the new additions to our team,” said White-Whitaker. “We’ve brought in four new players and I feel that we’re going to be a lot more athletic than we’ve been in the past.”

4

Although the Kangaroos finished last season with just a 6-8 record in conference action, three Kangaroos picked up postseason accolades, two of whom return to the fold in 2007-08. Alysa Klein earned first team all-conference honors, while Chazny Morris was named the Mid-Con Newcomer of the Year, marking the second straight season the award was given to a UMKC player. Those two players certainly figure to play heavily in White-Whitaker’s plans this season. “I expect Alysa and Chazny to have a big year this season as key returners,” said White-Whitaker. “You never want to say how many wins you expect, but I expect this team to play hard and play with enthusiasm every time out on the floor.”

the backcourt

Although the Kangaroos lost an excellent backcourt player in Jowan Ortega to graduation, it is hard to imagine a group of guards better suited to picking up the slack than the core of players that return for the 2007-08 season. Along with Morris, Sierra Radke and Heather Wimberly both played significant minutes last season and look to fill the hole left by Ortega’s departure.

be in this league. We expect her to take a strong leadership role as an underclassman this year.” Last season, Morris averaged 8.9 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, to go along with 31 steals on the year. She scored a careerhigh 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting in the Mid-Con Tournament against ORU. “Chazny is a player that can make the big plays - she has the ability to score off the dribble, hit the open three or even post against a smaller guard. She’s very versatile offensively.” Offensively, Brittny Picconi will be looked upon to provide additional depth for the Kangaroos, after averaging 7.9 points per game on the 2006-07 campaign for UMKC. “I think Brittny has the potential to really score a lot of points quickly for us,” said White-Whitaker. “I think that she’s excited about her senior season and will be able to complement the other wing and post players on our team.” Running the Kangaroo offense from the point will fall on the shoulders of Radke. The senior was plagued by injuries throughout the 2006-07 season, but still recorded 23 appearances, averaging 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds per contest. “Last year, Sierra struggled with injuries, so hopefully we can keep her healthy this year,” remarked White-Whitaker. “I expect her to come in as a senior point guard and be the on-court leader of this team. Sierra’s a true point guard - that’s her mentality - and I expect her to be ready because she will be key to our team’s success.”

Coming off an impressive debut, Morris will certainly be expected to continue her rapid growth and be an offensive leader for the Kangaroos. She won a spot in the starting rotation just nine games into her freshman season and provided immediate impact. “I really felt like Chazny grew a lot as a freshman,” said White-Whitaker. “Her last game - in the conference tournament - I think she really understood how good she can

Chazny Morris was named the 2007 Mid-Con Newcomer of the Year, the second straight year the award was earned by a UMKC player.

Capable of playing the point as well as shooting guard, Wimberly will certainly factor into the Kangaroos’ success this season. Missing just one game last season, the redshirt junior averaged 3.7 points and 2.8 assists per contest last year. “Heather is one of the toughest kids I’ve ever been around,” said White-Whitaker. “She’s coming off one injury and playing through

another, but you’ll never hear her complain. She’s a great defensive player; always alert, always looking to make the next play. We look for her to continue doing all the little things to help our team win that don’t always show up on the stat sheet.” Defensively, senior Lindsay Fields and sophomore Myleka Emerson will give the Kangaroos a change of pace. Both guards are quick on the ball and tenacious defenders. “Lindsay is the best kid you’ll ever be around,” said White-Whitaker. “She works hard day-in-and-day-out. We look for her to come in and be a defensive specialist and also knock down the open shot.” “Myleka really has the ability to defend, which allows us to extend our defense up the court,” said White-Whitaker. “She can pick up and turn people. I like the dynamic she brings to the team. She is one of the most athletic kids in the league with her ability to break people down off the dribble.” Another speedy guard brought in this year as part of White-Whitaker’s recruiting class is Taushelle Rushing. “Taushelle has great speed and quickness in her hands and feet,” said White-Whitaker. “She was third in the nation in steals last year. Her defensive presence can lead to some easy buckets for our team, which will be a nice spark for our offense.” Tarah Cullen also returns in the backcourt corps for UMKC. The redshirt sophomore didn’t see much action in the 2006-07 season, as she was still recovering after missing her freshman year due to injury. “Unfortunately, last year was more of a catching-up year for Tarah, trying to get her body back to where she can compete at this level,” said White-Whitaker. “Tarah can shoot with the best of them, and she’s a bigger guard that really understands the game. We look for her to continue to work hard and continue to improve.” Also expected to see time in the backcourt for UMKC is freshman Sarah Stewart. “Sarah can really shoot the ball, but like any freshman there will be a bit of a transition to the college game,” said White-Whitaker. “Once she settles into this environment, I expect her to be a contributor for this team.”

overview the schedule

KC’s chances on the block this season. Highlighting the post players for UMKC is Klein. In addition to her team-leading 356 points, Klein also led the squad with 203 rebounds.

Coach White-Whitaker has scheduled a tough slate in her first full year at the helm, with the Kangaroos taking on four 2007 postseason tournament participants, while also playing away games in hostile road venues at Kansas and at Missouri.

She was also a threat on the defensive end of the floor, establishing a new singleseason Division I-era record for blocks with 73. The block total paced UMKC to a conference-best 145 rejections, with Klein’s individual mark better than four league foes’ team totals. “Alysa will continue to be an offensive presence in the low post for us this year,” said White-Whitaker. “She is also a great asset on defense with her shot-blocking ability. Last year she took on more of a leadership role, and this year I expect her to step up and be a leader on our team. She’s got a great post coach in Brett Schneider and I expect her to lead this team and produce on both ends of the floor.”

“We’ve got a good mix of opponents on this year’s schedule that should prepare us for what we’ll see in The Summit League,” said White-Whitaker. “With four newcomers, it’s good for us to play teams that will challenge us and test us as a team, but also allow us to experience success. I think our non-conference schedule should give us the right mix to prepare us for league play.” UMKC will play a single exhibition contest this season before embarking on the regular season slate, with Panhandle State visiting Swinney Recreation Center on November 3. The Kangaroos start with a whirlwind, playing three games in the span of five days with two of those contests on the road - at Central Arkansas and at Kansas. Alysa Klein set a single-season Division I-era blocks record for UMKC last season, leading the Mid-Con individually with 73. Her individual total was higher than four team totals in the league.

Complementing Klein in the post will be senior Marta Waalen. The three-year letterwinner saw action in 24 contests for the Kangaroos last season, averaging 2.3 rebounds per game and picking up 15 blocks. “Marta is the kind of player that will give you whatever you need,” said White-Whitaker. “She’s very much a team player and is willing to accept any role that she is asked to fill. Last year she stepped in and did a tre-

mendous job as a post defender, but I think she can score with the ball as well. We’ve talked about that during the off-season, and I expect her to be ready to contribute offensively when she’s on the floor.” Two newcomers will provide versatility and depth in the post, as well as added athleticism. Kalei Nance and Krystal VanHook both join the Kangaroos after successful stints at the junior college level. Nance averaged 8.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game to lead Central Arizona to the NJCAA National Championship game. VanHook played two seasons at Tyler Junior College, averaging 8.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game as the Apache Ladies finished eighth in the NJCAA Tournament “Kalei and Krystal both provide us with a lot more versatility at the forward position,” said White-Whitaker. “Both can step out and shoot, handle the ball and play on the block.”

With five seniors leading the way and four athletic newcomers joining the squad, 2007-08 promises to be an exciting season for UMKC.

2007-08 UMKC Women’s Basketball Media Guide

The Kangaroos will play home games against Air Force and Colorado State before heading out west for the University of San Francisco Odwalla Classic. White-Whitaker is looking to her seniors to help the underclassmen and newcomers make the transition. “We’ve got five great seniors this year. I’m confident that their leadership both on and off the court will help our younger players grow and mature.” White-Whitaker’s squad returns home for a pair of games after the western swing, playing in-state foe Saint Louis before hosting Texas State as final tune-ups for league play. Although there is a new moniker, the league portion of UMKC’s slate will be as tough as ever, with the likes of Oakland who won the Mid-Con regular season title - and Oral Roberts, along with newcomers IPFW, South Dakota State and North Dakota State. The Summit League Tournament will once again be hosted at the John Q. Hammons Arena at the UMAC in Tulsa, Okla. The quarterfinal rounds are slated to begin on March 8, 2008, with the championship game scheduled for March 11.

head coachCandace White-Whitaker Candace White-Whitaker was named the head coach of the UMKC women’s basketball program on Mar. 19, 2007. White-Whitaker, who is the seventh head coach in the Division I era at UMKC, had previously been an assistant coach for two years before serving as the interim head coach during the 2006-07 season. After taking over on the sidelines for Bo Overton on Dec. 11, 2006, White-Whitaker compiled an 8-11 record for the Kangaroos, while being one of the youngest head coaches in the nation at 26. In Mid-Con play, she guided her squad to a 6-8 overall record and a tie for fifth place in the Mid-Con regular season standings. A trio of players earned all-league honors under White-Whitaker’s tutelage. Alysa Klein was selected as a first team all-conference selection, while Stephanie Brown was an honorable mention all-league honoree. Chazny Morris, meanwhile, was selected to the all-newcomer squad, and she was named the Mid-Con Newcomer of the Year.

Second season Texas Tech, ‘02

From 2004-06, White-Whitaker served as an assistant coach for the Kangaroos under Overton. During the 2005-06 campaign, UMKC improved three games in the Mid-Con regular season race, as they finished with an even 8-8 mark. In the regular season finale, UMKC became one of two league teams to post a win at Western Illinois, a venue where the Westerwinds had previously won 46-consecutive games. White-Whitaker guided Brown to first team all-conference and all-newcomer honors, as well as to the “Newcomer of the Year” accolade. Brown was the first UMKC player to be awarded the accomplishment. In her inaugural year in Kansas City, White-Whitaker helped guide the Kangaroos to the championship game of the 2005 Mid-Continent Tournament. It was the first time that any UMKC basketball team (men’s or women’s) had played in a tournament final. Overall, UMKC finished 10-20 overall and 5-11 in the league.

While at VALPO, she helped the team to two straight Mid-Continent Conference Tournament championships, two NCAA Tournament berths and two 20-win seasons. The NCAA appearances were the first in the history of the school. White-Whitaker arrived at Valparaiso after playing at Texas Tech for two seasons (2000-02). She led the team to a pair of Sweet Sixteen appearances as the Lady Raiders’ starting point guard under legendary coach Marsha Sharp. Prior to her two seasons at Texas Tech, she played two years at Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kan., where her team was ranked number one in the nation in 1999-2000 after finishing fifth nationally the season before. White-Whitaker was named an honorable mention National Junior College Athletic Association all-American after she averaged a double-double in assists and points. She also led the nation in assists under Head Coach Jim Littell in 99-00. White-Whitaker was also a member of the NJCAA National Team that played in Europe. A prolific playmaker, White-Whitaker finished her career with more than 830 assists in four years of collegiate basketball. A native of Canyon, Texas, White-Whitaker received a bachelor of science degree in exercise sport science from Texas Tech in 2002. She also earned a master’s degree in sports administration at Valparaiso in 2004, where she received the Athenaeum award for academics. White-Whitaker was married to Matt Whitaker on April 28, 2007.

2007-08 preview

about thesummit league Now in its 26th year as an NCAA Division I athletics conference, The Summit League is in its first year under that name. In May 2007, the Presidents Council embraced the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athletic performances of all its student-athletes. Included in the plan was the creation of a new image of the conference and the unveiling of a new name. The Summit League is the third name the conference has held as an NCAA sanctioned league.

The Summit League’s current member schools are Centenary College of Louisiana, IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue UniversityFort 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. The member schools pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports, which include: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming & diving, men’s and women’s indoor track & field, men’s and women’s outdoor track & field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball.

umkc history

the naiayears

naia-erastandouts

Before the UMKC basketball program joined the ranks of the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division I competition, the Kangaroos competed on the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) level for seven seasons. UMKC quickly proved that it could compete on that level, compiling a record of 159-48 for a .768 winning percentage. Only once did UMKC finish with a losing record, compiling a 5-16 mark in 1980-81, the team’s inaugural season. Under Coach Nancy Norman, the Kangaroos won at least 19 games every year except for their first season, and advanced to the NAIA National Tournament twice. UMKC finished third in the nation at the NAIA level in 1983 and fifth in 1985.

umkc history

the evolution ofkasey kangaroo

82

What do The Kansas City Star, Walt Disney and the Kansas City Zoo have in common? All are pieces to a puzzle concerning the question, “How in the world did UMKC pick a Kangaroo as its mascot?” The Kangaroo issue was first brought up in 1936 when the editors of The University (then named Kansas City University) newspaper decided it was time to find a mascot for the debate team. There were no organized University athletic teams at the time, yet the students on the newspaper staff still wanted a unique identity for their debate team and, more importantly, their school. The fire was lit later that year when an article appeared in The Kansas City Star titled “Kangaroo May Go to KCU ... Student Editors Believe University Should Have a Symbol.” Interest in the mascot was also spurred by the Kansas City Zoo’s purchase of two baby kangaroos about that same time and the subsequent publicity generated by the Kangaroo nearly suffered a quick demise in 1937 when the editors of the University yearbook The Crataegus decided that a kangaroo was not an appropriate university symbol. They opted to delete the proposed kangaroo emblem from the yearbook’s feature section, but supporters of the mascot began a vocal attack.

Just as the criticism began to mount and support for the kangaroo was beginning to wane, famed cartoonist Walt Disney came to the rescue. In April 1937, a leading KCU political group, the CO-OP Party, won a landslide election with “Kasey the Kangaroo” as its insignia. “Kasey,”the group stated, fit KC. The same month, the first issue of the KCU humor magazine The Kangaroo was published. Six months after the first kangaroo appeared on the cover, another kangaroo was featured, this time alongside Mickey Mouse. The artist of this drawing was the famous Disney, and support for the kangaroo mounted. In a matter of a few years, The Crataegus folded and The Kangaroo became the school’s yearbook. Over the years, the kangaroo went through numerous changes and refinements before a final edition was agreed upon via a special committee appointed by then-chancellor Randall Whaley. The Athletics Department introduced a new set of marks in November, 2004, working with Plan B. Branding of San Diego, Calif., to create the identity. The Kangaroos is a unique nickname, and UMKC shares it with a slight few. Just two other colleges in the nation use Kangaroos as its nickname — Austin College in Sherman, Texas and State University of New York at Canton. The Akron Zips, meanwhile, use the kangaroo as its mascot. To the right and below: Kasey Kangaroo has gone through several makeovers throughout the years, culminating in the current athletic marks and mascot.

swinneyrecreation center One of the finest fitness centers in all of Kansas City, Swinney Recreation Center was created through a $14.5 million addition to the old Swinney Gymnasium. It includes: • Five basketball courts and four raquetball courts • A 25-meter indoor/outdoor pool, with dry sauna and steam rooms for relaxation • Two weight rooms, Nautilus equipment and a cardio room with stairmasters, stationary bikes and treadmills

The competition court serves as the home venue for the UMKC women’s basketball program, as well as for the UMKC volleyball team in the fall. It is also the main practice venue for the women’s and men’s basketball and volleyball teams. The UMKC basketball and volleyball locker room facilities all went through a major renovation in the summer of 2007. The locker room space was gutted and completely re-done to give UMKC some of the finest locker rooms in The Summit League. Along with providing each Kangaroo student-athlete their own individual locker space, the facility also features a players lounge that includes leather couches and a big screen television. Additionally, the lounge is equipped with a computer work station with a high-speed Internet connection.

A building that many believe is the best arena in which to watch basketball, Municipal is also home to the NAIA National Tournament, now in its fifth decade in Kansas City. Municipal Auditorium is a historic venue, the site of more NCAA Final Fours than any other building in the country. Nine NCAA Championship games have been contested in this venue. Adding to its rich and storied history, Municipal recently underwent a series of upgrades. More than $3.5 million was invested in new arena lighting, new seating and enhanced

locker rooms for players and officials. Prior to the 2006-07 season, the facility also replaced the playing court. UMKC served as the host institution for the Midwest Regional site for the 2005 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship, held at Municipal. Kemper Arena also plays host to UMKC Basketball during the 2007-08 season. At the time of its construction, it was one of the most innovative indoor venues in the country. Suitable for hockey, indoor soccer and concerts as well, Kemper has a strong college basketball tradition, having hosted the Big 8 and Big 12 championship tournaments.

roocrew The Roo Crew is a student organization that strives to be the most spirited group of students on campus by creating the best home court advantage possible for all Kangaroo games. The organization serves as a liaison between the athletics department and the UMKC student community by creating a fun environment for all of its members. The group also serves as student ambassadors of UMKC and it acts with integrity and sportsmanship.

The Dutton Brookfield Strength and Conditioning Center at UMKC’s Swinney Recreation Center was officially dedicated on Sept. 22, 2004. Led by Director of Strength, Conditioning and Sports Enhancement Kip Hytrek, the Brookfield Center is designed to help enhance UMKC student-athletes’ levels of performance while significantly reducing the chances for injuries. The benefit of performing structured strength and power training throughout the entire year will give student- athletes the opportunity to reach new levels of physical development. The center contains free weights, plus platforms, benches and machines and the latest cardiovascular equipment. In the summer of 2006, the area purchased the latest Sports Motion system to give student-athletes the video analysis needed to improve their techniques.

umkc athletics facilities victor f. swydenathletics training facility The UMKC Victor F. Swyden Athletics Training Facility opened in the spring of 1999, and was built in the memory of Victor F. Swyden, a former Kansas City councilman and UMKC supporter. The Swyden Athletics Training Facility serves as a permanent tribute to Swyden’s ardent support of UMKC Intercollegiate Athletics. In 1985, Swyden headed a taskforce that guided the Kangaroos from NAIA to NCAA Division I. A lifetime resident of Kansas City, Swyden graduated from Paseo High School and served for 20 years as a Kansas City councilman. He earned his bachelor of arts degree in 1938 and bachelor of science degree in business and public administration in 1939 from the University of Missouri. In 1993, Swyden was the second recipient of the Golden Torch Award, one of the highest honors given by UMKC to an individual. UMKC is committed to total care for each student-athlete and promotes an atmosphere conducive to the education of student athletic trainers. With one of the finest athletic training facilities around, the Kangaroos benefit from the most up-to-date modalities and equipment. Under the guidance of Head Athletics Trainer Ted Ferris, the UMKC Sports Medicine staff prioritizes prevention, treatment and rehabilitation in working with Kangaroo student-athletes.

87

In 2006, UMKC signed a deal with the Goppert Trinity Family Care Center that will see Kangaroo student-athletes get in-house medical coverage, daily sick calls and increased game coverage. Dr. Brad Warrick, an internal medicine doctor who specializes in sports medicine at GTFCC, begins his first year as the UMKC team physician. Dr. Dan Gurley, who practices out of College Park Family Care Center, begins his sixth year as the Kangaroos team orthopedic surgeon. Meanwhile, Dr. Shane Bisson, who practices out of Bisson Chiropractic, is in his fourth year as the team chiropractor.

umkc athletics facilities umkc office forstudent-athlete services The Office for Student-Athlete Services (OSAS) was designed and implemented in 1987 in conjunction with the UMKC Center for Academic Development. OSAS provides guidance to the entire population of student-athletes in terms of acclimating to collegiate life, balancing athletic, academic and social demands and following proper academic procedure. The OSAS facility (remodeled in early 2005) houses 15 tutors to assist with more than 20 entry-level core curriculum courses with most tutors also specializing in a number of upper-level classes. OSAS also features a 13-computer lab supported by Information Services and a private tutor room, which can also be used for group study. Ownership of education and support without dependence are benchmarks of the program, which features weekly academic progress meetings for freshmen, transfer students and those students who benefit academically when given a bit more structure to their study habits. Students are provided the opportunity to use campus-approved sources of academic support including, but not limited to: course-specific tutors, the Math Resource Center, the Language Resource Center, the College of Arts & Sciences Writing Center (and accompanying satellite office in Swinney Recreation Center), the OSAS Study Hall and other recognized support services.

88

Beginning in the fall semester of 2007, the department will officially pre-advise student-athletes by designing class schedules for each semester that ensure progress toward NCAA and University degree program requirements, while also allowing for time to represent the University in competition. Of course, each student-athlete is also required to verify his/her schedule with the proper faculty or academic unit adviser, as necessary. In the event that a student-athlete’s commitment to represent the institution in competition conflicts with a course requirement such as an exam, OSAS oversees the collaboration between the studentathelte, the instructor and the proctoring service of the UMKC Counseling Testing Services Office. OSAS is also an NCAA-approved CHAMPS/Life Skills Program recognizing UMKC’s commitment to programming for the development of the whole student-athlete. Aside from athletic and academic guidance, CHAMPS also focuses on the individual student-athlete commitment to community service, professional development and personal development. UMKC student-athletes assit with UMKC Residence Life Move-In Day, volunteer with numerous campus and community greoups and are an official partner of Harvester’s Food Bank in Kansas City.

student-atlhlete servicesstaff

OSAS also teams with campus offices and organizations such as Counseling Services, Student Life, the Women’s Center, the LGBT Office, and others to allow student-atheltes an opportunity to mature as an individual and enjoy non-athletic experiences. OSAS is involved with post-athletic career development, as well. The office routinely partners with the UMKC Career Services Center to offer workshops for students regarding resume building, job-search strategies, interviewing and graduate school preparation.

umkc athletics facilities residential lifecherry street/oak street halls Student housing at UMKC is about more than just offering a place to eat and sleep - it’s about the total educational experience. We know that having a home away from home where students can hang out with friends or play a game of volleyball in the courtyard is important after going to class and making the grade. That’s why all housing is conveniently located on the west side of campus, near the University Center (and cafeteria), Swinney Recreation Center and within easy walking distance to all other Volker campus buildings. Nearby are the Country Club Plaza and museums and other local attractions. Downtown Kansas City, Mo., is approximately 10 minutes away by car (or bus). It’s fun to be a part of UMKC residential life where students have a chance to make friends from all parts of the country and all corners of the world. Each housing option has a professional manager and Community Assistants (CAs) who are available to answer questions or concerns. They were once new to UMKC, so they know best how to help students become familiar with the campus and cope with the transition from home.

Oak Street Hall, with space for 559 students, opened in August 2004.

the road toselection monday getting to 64 teams

conference divisional championship.

There are three phases in the process: I. Select the 33 at-large teams; II. Seed the teams; and III. Place the teams into the championship bracket. general principles for selection, seeding and bracketing The basketball committee will abide by the following principles:

• At no point in the process shall a member vote for a team the individual represents as an institutional or conference administrator.

104

• The process for creating the initial “at-large nomination board” will then be closed. • A team may be added to the nomination board at any time provided it receives at least three votes. A team may be removed from the nomination board if it receives a vote of seven eligible voters. Verbal nominations are permitted.

remaining ballots

• The committee will evaluate those teams on the at-large nomination board.

• A member shall not be present during discussions regarding the se¬lection or seeding of a team the individual represents.

• Each committee member will “list” eight teams, not in rank order, to be added to the at-large field.

• A member shall not answer questions about the team the individual represents, except for factual questions (e.g., dates of injuries, status of injured players). A conference administrator is permitted to answer general questions (i.e., relative strengths of teams within a conference) about teams in the conference the individual represents. An athletics administrator is permitted to discuss other teams in the individual’s conference only when asked.

• Each committee member will “rank” the top eight vote-getters from the previous “list” process, using a cross country scoring system (e.g., first or best is valued at one point). • The four teams receiving the fewest points shall be moved into the tournament field as an at-large selection. The other four teams will be held for the next ballot.

• All votes will be by secret ballot.

• The “list” eight, “rank” eight, “move” four process will be repeated until all at-large berths have been filled.

• The process for selecting the at-large teams, seeding the teams and placing the teams in the tournament bracket shall be conducted in the prescribed chronological order (e.g., selection, seeding and bracketing).

• If a team fails to move onto the at-large board for two consecutive at-large ballots, it shall be returned to the at-large nomination board.

• Principles must be followed by the committee during selection, seeding and bracketing of the championship field. Selection, seeding and bracketing principles are not considered in priority order. All principles must be adhered to throughout each of the three processes. The committee will make every effort to apply “additional considerations”, provided they do not cause a violation of the principles. Among the resources available to the committee are complete box scores, game summaries and notes, computer rankings, head-tohead results, chronological results, Division I results, non-conference results, home and away results, results in the last ten games, rankings, polls and the coaches’ regional advisory committee rankings. The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Principles and Procedures for Establishing the Bracket document is included in the comprehensive review of the Division I Women’s Basketball Championship, conducted annually by the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. This document was revised and approved by the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee, October 2006.

i. principles for selecting at-large teams The committee shall select the 33 best teams to fill the at-large berths, regardless of conference affiliation.

There is no limit on the number of teams the committee may select from one conference.

procedures for selecting at-large teams

• At the beginning of the March meeting, each committee member will submit a list of 64 institutions in random order that the individual believes should be considered for selection, including those teams that have already earned automatic qualification. • Any team receiving nine (9) or more votes on the initial ballot will move into the tournament field as an at-large selection (at-large board). • The committee will form an “at-large nomination board” consisting of an alphabetical listing of all teams that: • Received more than one vote in the initial ballot but, did not receive enough votes to move onto the at-large board. • Did not receive more than one vote on the initial ballot, but was subsequently recommended by more than one member prior to closing initial nominations. • Won or shared the regular-season conference championship or

• A team may be removed from the at-large field and returned to the at-large nomination board by a vote of seven eligible voters.

additional considerations

• At any time during the process, the chair may suggest that the committee begin reviewing teams that should be eliminated from consideration. A team may be removed from consideration by a vote of seven eligible voters. • The number of teams eligible to receive votes may be increased or decreased by the chair if circumstances war¬rant. Further, the chair has the option to revise the number of teams to be moved onto the at-large board from four to two. • At any time during the process, the chair may call for a crosscountry vote of all remaining teams on the at-large nomination board. • At any time during the process of selecting the at-large teams, the committee may elect to begin seeding the teams.

ii. principles for seeding of teams

The committee will create an s-curve (i.e., rank of the teams 1 through 64) which is used as a reference to ensure balance. Once the s-curve is finalized, it remains unchanged throughout the committee’s deliberations in placing the teams into the championship bracket. The bracket-placement principles may preclude a team from being placed in its “true” seed, in accordance with the s-curve.

procedures for seeding teams

• All four teams on each seed line (No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, etc.) should be as equal as possible. • The committee will assign each team to the most geographically compatible regional and first-/second-round site, by order of the s-curve. When multiple teams are a similar distance from a site, the team seeded higher in the s-curve will be assigned to the closest geographical proximity site. • If a team’s institution is serving as a first- and second-round host, the team will be assigned to the institution’s site. For the regional competition, a team may not be assigned to play in any arena in which it has played more than three regular-season games, not including conference post-season tournaments nor may a host institution’s team be permitted to play at the site where the institution is hosting. However, the team may play on the same days when the institution is hosting. • Each of the first three teams selected from a conference shall be placed in different regions. No more than one team from a conference may be seeded in the same grouping of four (Line Nos. 1-4 and 13-16 in a region). In Line Nos. 5-12, two teams from the same conference may be placed in the same group of four provided they would not meet until the regional final game. The only possible exception would occur if a conference has five or more teams seeded in line Nos. 1-4. The other principles herein would apply in the exception case. • There shall not be more than two teams from a conference in one region and conference teams shall not meet each other prior to the regional final unless a ninth team is selected from a conference. • Two teams from the same conference within the same region shall not be seeded together in either of the following groups: Line Nos. 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13 and 16; or Line Nos. 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 and 15.

procedures for placing teams into the championship bracket

• Place the teams seeded 1-4 in each of the four regions pairing the No. 1 seed’s region against the No. 4 seed’s region and the No. 2 seed’s region against the No. 3 seed’s region. Place the Nos. 2, 3, 4 seeds in each region. • After each group of four teams is determined, check for conflicts with the principles for placing the teams into the bracket and determine the relative strengths of the regions by adding the “true” seed number in each region (e.g., original s-curve order). Generally, no more than five points should separate the lowest and highest total in Line Nos. 1-4. • After the committee has placed teams in each region, the committee will assign those teams to first-/second-round sites. The committee will assign each team to the most geographically compatible regional and first-/second-round site, by order of the s-curve. When multiple teams are a similar distance from a site, the team seeded higher in the s-curve will be assigned to the closest geographical proximity site. • Place Nos. 13, 14, 15 and 16 seeds in each region.

• Each committee member will “list” eight teams, not in rank order, that are “in” the tournament as automatic qualifiers or at-large teams to be placed in the s-curve.

• In bracket line Nos. 5 through 12, the committee will assign all four teams a bracket line number (i.e., five through twelve) rather than using the seed number. All teams on a given line will have the same numerical value.

• Each committee member will “rank” the top eight vote-getters from the previous “list” process, using a cross country scoring system (e.g., first or best is valued at one point).

• The committee will evaluate each region to ensure that no region includes all of the highest or lowest seeds from the s-curve on each line within a region’s group of four.

• The four teams receiving the fewest points shall be moved into the s-curve, in rank order. The other four teams will be held for the next ballot.

• Place seeds No. 5, 6, 7 and 8 in each region.

• The “list” eight, “rank” eight, “move” four in rank order process will be repeated until all teams have been seeded in the s-curve. • After a team has been voted into the s-curve, it may be moved in the s-curve by a vote of seven eligible voters.

additional considerations

• The committee is not obligated to seed Line Nos. 1-16 in the s-curve in chronological order.

iii. principles for placing teams into the championship bracket The committee will attempt to achieve relative balance in the bracket and provide comparable competition, while abiding by the remaining principles. Balance does not mean equal. After all teams have been placed in the bracket, the committee will formally adopt the bracket.

• The committee will assign all four teams in each “group” (seeds 1, 16, 8, 9), (4, 13, 5, 12), (2, 15, 7, 10), (3, 14, 6, 11) to the same first-/second-round site. There will be two “groups” at each first-/second-round site. The first/second-round sites that feed into a regional site may be in different geographic areas from the regional. Also, the two “groups” at a first-/second-round site may feed into different regional sites.

• Place seeds No. 9, 10, 11 and 12 in the region. • After all teams have been placed in the bracket and the bracket assignments have been checked to ensure that the principles have been met, the committee will formally adopt the bracket.

additional considerations

• A team may be moved one bracket line from its true seed line (e.g., from a No. 13 seed to a No. 12 seed) when it is placed in the bracket, if necessary to meet the bracket-placement principles. • If the committee is unable to balance the bracket after exhausting all possible options, it has the flexibility to permit two teams from the same conference to meet each other after the first round, if the conference has more than five participants. • If possible, rematches of regular-season games should be avoided in the first- and second-rounds. • If possible, rematches of previous years’ tournament games should be avoided in the first- and second-rounds. • The committee shall attempt to avoid moving a team or a conference out of its natural region or geographic area an inordinate number of times and will examine the previous three tournament brackets to determine the number of times a team or conference has been assigned out of its natural region.
