BEMIDJI STATE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL


A

fter spending a season through growing pains, the Bemidji State University women’s basketball team is ready to compete again in a tough Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference that produced last season’s NCAA Division II national champion, Minnesota State University, Mankato. The 2008-09 squad posted a 3-24 overall and 1-19 NSIC record, establishing the conference record for most league losses in a season with Upper Iowa University, who also had 19 losses last year. That team had a large group of underclssmen that are now a year older and a year wiser, poised to prove that last season’s marks will not be a trend. “As a group, I could go down the line and say they all put the time and effort in last season. None of us felt good about how last year went as far as what our record was,” said head coach Mike Curfman. “As coaches we try and see what we can do to get better and as players they are doing the same thing. They have worked hard in the weight room and have done more conditioning and their basketball skills have gotten better.” The Beavers have a team that has just one senior, three juniors, six sophomores and six freshmen, but there are eight newcomers. Despite still having a young and new team, BSU is returning a sophomore class that had 20.2 minutes, 31.6 points, 18.8 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game in 2008-09. “We are going to be a more balanced team,” Curfman said. “Last year we were a guard oriented team and at times it went well, but when teams took that away from us we weren’t able to come away with as many wins as we would’ve liked. We will be able to push the ball and we have some depth on the inside. If you take that with the new players we have coming in, it creates a lot of reasons for optimism this season.”

OFFENSE/DEFENSE

SCHEDULE

This season the Beavers will be running a motion, high-low offensive style, hoping to score more points after producing 63.9 ppg last season, which was 13th in the league. Working to BSU’s advantage is that its players are interchangeable when it comes to point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and center. Consistency and balance will be key for the young Beavers on the offensive end of the floor.

The Beavers play five nonconference games before starting the home and NSIC schedule Dec. 4 against Minnesota State University Moorhead. The season will begin Nov. 16 at Mayville State. BSU then travels to Grinnell, Iowa for the Grinnell Tip Off Tournament Nov. 20-21 to play Martin Luther and Buena Vista University. The Beavers will give thanks at the Grand Canyon Thanksgiving Tournament Nov. 27-28 in Phoenix, Ariz. BSU plays Western State University (Colo.) and Western New Mexico, with Western New Mexico being a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and having regional implications. BSU opens the NSIC and home season with games against the Dragons Dec. 4 and the University of Minnesota, Crookston Dec. 5.

“All our guards and posts are interchangeable. It doesn’t matter if you play the 1,2,3 or 4,5. The 4,5 mirror each other and the 1,2,3 mirror each other,” Curfman said. “The 3-point shot will be a very important part of our team, but we are looking for balance between 3-point shooting and an inside scoring presence. If we can do that, we can get back to those seasons where we were in the top-20 in the nation in scoring.” Defense wasn’t a strong part of the Beavers’ game last season, allowing a league-worst 80.7 ppg. BSU also had the worst scoring margin in the league at a -16.8 clip. Rebounding was also an issue for the small team that ran five guards at times. The Beavers had a -3.9 rebounding margin last season, which was 12th in the NSIC. This season BSU will look to make strides in that category and also bear-down on the defensive side of the ball. The defensive end is the biggest thing we need to improve on, no doubt about it,” Curfman said. “We were not very good defensively last year. We gave up too many points per game and we obviously didn’t rebound enough, as our leading rebounder was a guard. We didn’t have the mentality to get after it on the defensive end. Offense is important, but you have to take care of the ball because teams are too good to be giving them second and third chances. I think we are going to show some strides in that area. If we want to be as successful as we think we can, it has to start on the defensive end.”

SEASON OUTLOOK

2010-11 SEASON PREVIEW

“We are excited for the Phoenix trip because it will be important to get some time to bond and be together. The nonconference schedule is challenging, but it has to be because our conference is one of the top Division II conferences in the nation,” Curfman said.

NEWCOMERS The Beavers are bringing in a strong crop of freshmen players from around the state of Minnesota, adding a junior college transfer, adopting a former BSU volleyball player and welcoming back a familiar face to the program. BSU has six true freshmen this season in Jessie Althoff (Becker, Minn.), Becky Crummy (Argyle, Minn.), Emily Kaus (Eagan, Minn.), Katie Pettit (Howard Lake, Minn.), Shannon Thompson (Rosemount, Minn.) and Tiffany Van Haaften (Chaska, Minn.). The Beavers are also adding junior Anna Hebrink, who comes to BSU via Riverland Community College in Austin, Minn. Heather Sampson competed for the BSU volleyball team in 2007 and 2008 and will enter the 2009-10 basketball season as a sophomore. Sampson ranked second on the team in kills (157) and blocks (51) in 2008. Finally, the Beavers welcome junior Kelly Landsverk back to the squad. Landsverk played as a freshman for BSU during the 2006-07 season, playing in 23 games.

SEASON OUTLOOK

Fr. F 2 Ellie Wessling, 5-10, Winsted, Minn. Sophomore Kiki Phillips returns to the Beavers after a successful freshman campaign. Phillips played in 24 games, averaging 15.5 minutes, 4.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. She will be asked to play a variety of positions in 2009-10. “Kiki is one of those players that is really versatile,” Curfman said. “She can play some shooting guard and she can play some post. She will be somewhere between the 2 and 5 at different times, depending on match-ups and opposing line-ups.”

BSU will return a strong core of guards with sophomores Sydney Epema and Samantha Baldwin leading the way. Epema leads the returning players in scoring, tallying 11.1 points per game, while playing in all 27 games, starting 24. Epema also led the team in 3-pointers with 73 in a BSU single-season record 207 attempts. Baldwin posted 7.1 points per game and led the team in rebounds with 148 (5.5 rpg). She also played in all 27 games, starting 24. Also in the mix is the lone senior Kim Rosecrans, who spent her first season with the Beavers last year, playing in 25 games. “Sydney has a fantastic 3-point shot and has improved the other elements of her game this offseason, working offensively off the dribble and she has worked really hard to get better defensively,” Curfman said. “We hope to move Sam to her natural position,” Curfman said. “Last year she played a lot of point guard and she is more of a shooting guard. We have seen a lot of good things in practice so far this fall. The great thing is the skills she learned last season are going to help her in the future.”

Newcomers

Fr. C 52 Kate Warmack, 6-2, East Grand Forks, Minn. The top post player from last season is returning to the Beavers this year, as junior Colleen McKay will dawn the BSU jersey once again. McKay was the second leading rebounder, pulling down 130 (4.8 rpg) boards. She also added the third most points with 233 (8.6 ppg), while playing in all 27 games, starting 19. Sophomore Taylor Davis will look to add to her freshman performance in 2009-10 after posting 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. Davis was one of three freshmen to play in all 27 contests.

“Kim is the heart and soul of our team. There is no one more positive or more excited about the game,” Curfman said. “She loves the game. We look for her to contribute this year.”

ike Curfman is in his fifth year as head women’s basketball coach for the Beavers. Curfman has directed Bemidji State University to a 43-68 overall record (.387) in his four seasons while posting a 25-45 (.357) mark in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Entering his fifth season as head coach, Curfman becomes the third-longest tenured coach in the program’s history, trailing only Doreen Zierer who coached 11 seasons (1990-2002) and Ruth Howe who coached the programs ‘first 10 seasons (1967-77). Curfman is tied for fourth on BSU’s alltime coaching victories list. He trails Zierer (129), Howe (95), Joan Campbell (70) and is tied with Mary McDonald (43). The 2008-09 season was the worst under Curfman as the team posted a 3-24 overall and 1-19 NSIC record. In the 2007-08 season, BSU finished with a 13-15 record under Curfman, going 9-9 in the NSIC to finish league play in sixth place. With 13 wins it was the third consecutive season the Beavers have had 10 wins or more. The last time a Beaver squad had three consecutive 10-plus win seasons was from 1990-1993. Rejuvenating a program is nothing new to Curfman, he came to Bemidji State after six years at the helm of the University of Minnesota, Crookston program where three times during his tenure his teams set or equaled school records for wins (2000-01, 2001-02 and 2004-05) and racked up 55 victories during his final four seasons. While at UMC, he helped to elevate the program to the NCAA Division II level. After a 1-26 season in 1999-2000, Curfman directed the Golden Eagles to a school-record nine wins in 2000-01 and increased that record by16 the following year. In 2002-03, under Curfman,UMC made the NSIC tournament for the first time, cruising to the championship game before falling to NCAA Tournament bound University of Minnesota Duluth. Most recently his Golden Eagles tied for fourth place in the NSIC posting a league record of 8-6 while going 16-11 overall and making their first ever appearance in the North Central Regional Polls. He has mentored 10 All-Conference selections as a head coach including 2000-01 NSIC Newcomer of the Year and 2001-02 Player of the Year Jessica Forsline and was himself named as the 2002 NSIC Coach of the Year. Curfman’s teams have done equally as well in the classroom. During his tenure at UMC, the Golden Eagles posted at least a 3.0 team grade point average and finished in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s Top 10 Academic National Rankings with a team G.P.A. of better than 3.4 in 2004-05. Previous to taking over the UMC program, Curfman was an assistant coach at St. Cloud State University (1994-99), serving as Dr. Lori Ulferts’ top assistant for five seasons. He also coached under Dr. Ulferts at Moorhead State University (199294) as an assistant while serving as the head coach of the junior varsity team. He has presented at a number of camps and clinics and is a member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and the Minnesota State High School League Coaches Association. A native of Fosston, Minn., Curfman was an Academic All-America selection for the UMC basketball team while earning his A.A.S. degree. He then moved on to Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. where he graduated in 1992 with his B.A. in Business Administration while captaining the Cobber men’s basketball program. In 1994, Curfman earned his MBA in business administration from Moorhead State University (now Minnesota State University Moorhead) while acting as an assistant coach for the Dragons’ women’s basketball program. Curfman currently resides in Fosston with his wife Michelle, his son Caleb and his daughter Emily.
