THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators more than 45 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration ever for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi expanded the Southland into the Little Rock metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. Central Arkansas and A&M-Corpus Christi enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University-San Marcos. All told, the revised membership of the Southland encompasses more than

Lamar

180,000 current students and an alumni base of approximately 920,000. Famous alums from Southland Conference schools include former President Lyndon B. Johnson (Texas State), former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), retired U.S. Central Command General Tommy Franks (UT Arlington), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), country music star George Strait (Texas State), Major League Baseball stars Hunter Pence (UT Arlington), Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Ben Broussard (McNeese State), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas) and actor Lou Diamond Phillips (UT Arlington). The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio and the New Orleans area, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of Houston, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf,

soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The Conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest, the sixth such title game appearance since the league joined FCS in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 89 Division I playoff games in 27 years, winning 42 of the contests. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. Originally an NAIA conference, the Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968. The College Division was re-named NCAA Division II in 1973, and the league played two seasons in that class. The Southland was an NCAA Division I league from 1975-81, before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I conference from 1975-81, the Southland Conference was instrumental in the startup of the Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland representative served as the host team of the bowl until 1980, compiling a 2-3 record in those contests. The Conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first-ever NCAA-sanctioned national title,

winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. LouisianaMonroe won the 1987 FCS national title. McNeese State, which has made 13 appearances in the national playoffs, played in the 1997 and 2002 NCAA Division I FCS national championship games, while Stephen F. Austin played in the 1989 title game and has four playoff appearances. Northwestern State has played in the playoffs six times, and advanced to the semifinals in 1998, while Sam Houston State has earned four trips to the postseason, including the semifinals in 2004. Nicholls has participated three times in the playoffs. Last season, Texas State made its second postseason appearance in four years. Included was a trip to the semifinals in 2005. On four occasions, the Southland has placed three teams in the national 16-team playoffs. Six of the eight current footballplaying members have qualified for the FCS playoffs. In addition, Texas State won NCAA Division II titles in 1981 and 1982 before joining the Southland. The Southland has produced 152 firstteam football All-Americans during its history, and has sent such talent to the professional ranks including Oakland’s Keith Davis (Sam Houston State), Carolina’s Josh McCown (Sam Houston State), Buffalo’s Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), Kansas City’s B.J. Sams (McNeese State), Detroit’s Kevin Smith (McNeese State), Minnesota’s Fred Evans (Texas State), Tennessee’s Jacob Ford (Central Arkansas), and Oakland’s Luke Lawton (McNeese State). Twenty-three former players from the Southland were on NFL rosters to start the 2008 season. In the 2009 NFL Draft, the league saw four players taken, the most among FCS conferences and the most since five were selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. The league had two players selected in each of the three previous drafts and has seen 21 players taken in the NFL Draft since 2000.

Among the former NFL stars from the Southland include Fred Dean, who was inducted to the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2008 to become the first former Southland Conference player to earn induction in Canton. Other great NFL players from the Southland include Super Bowl XXIX quarterback Stan Humphries, Bill Bergey, Fred Barnett, Roger Carr, Marvin Upshaw, Larry Centers, Kavika Pittman, Mike Barber, Bruce Collie, Tim McKyer, Pat Tilley, Jackie Harris, Eugene Seale, Bubby Brister, Billy Ryckman, Rafael Septien, Buford Jordan, Marcus Spears, Terrance Shaw, and Ray Brown. The Southland Conference has also seen its share of great coaches during its history in Maxie Lambright, Ernie Duplechin, Sam Goodwin, Jack Doland, Bennie Ellender, Bobby Keasler, Larry Lacewell, Bill Davidson, Dennis Franchione, Pat Collins, and Ron Randleman. While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its studentathletes. In addition to football, the Southland Conference can point to a number of accomplishments in all sports. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 45-plus years. The league has sent two teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, as well as a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney, Devin Brown, and Mike Oliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. In 2008, the league saw two postseason teams (UT Arlington in the NCAA Tournament and Stephen F. Austin in the NIT) for the first time since 2001.

Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the sixth program in NCAA Division I history to record more than 800 wins, joining Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, Old Dominion, Texas and James Madison. For three consecutive seasons (2007-09) the Southland has sent two teams to the postseason as UT Arlington made its second appearance in the NCAA tournament in 2007 and UTSA saw its first action in the big dance in 2008 and made a return trip in 2009. A Southland team has played in the WNIT nine times, including each of the last three years. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a huge Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA Tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top-10 conferences in the country. Major leaguers such as Ben Sheets, the league’s highest draft pick (10th in 1999 by the Milwaukee Brewers), Micah Hoffpauir, Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark, and Terry Matthews once played in the league. Former UT Arlington shortstop, Trey Hillman, a threetime All-Southland selection from 1983-85, was named the manager for the Kansas City Royals following the 2007 season and coached the American League in the MLB All-Star Game this past July.

Southeastern Louisiana pitcher Wade Miley was the 43rd overall selection in the 2008 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft to become the 11th-highest player selected in league history. In 2005, McNeese State pitcher Jacob Marceaux was a first-round pick by the Florida Marlins, becoming the sixth Southland player taken in the first round. A total of 21 players were selected in the 2009 draft, the third most in conference history. Such coaches as Jim Gilligan, who won his 1,100th career game in 2009, Pat Patterson, Butch McBroom, Mark Johnson, Jim Wells, Smoke Laval, Dave Van Horn, Mike Bianco, John Cohen and Tony Robichaux, have patrolled Southland dugouts. Softball continues to enjoy success on a national level, as the league has knocked off at least one nationally ranked opponent since 1995, including a win by McNeese State over 19th-ranked LSU in 2009. In the 2003 NCAA Tournament, UT Arlington and Texas State enjoyed unprecedented success as each won two games in the national event. The league has also won at least one game in the NCAA tournament in three of the past five years. Texas State shut out No. 12 Northwestern in the opening game of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. In 18 years on NCAA competition the Southland has racked up 14 wins. The Southland has a proud history in volleyball as UT Arlington has represented the conference eight times in the NCAA tournament, advancing all the way to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. In 2006, Stephen F. Austin moved to the second round following an opening-round win against Alabama. Track and field has also served as a proud asset for the Southland Conference as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists. The Southland boasts 27 men and three women student-athletes who have won NCAA track and field national championships, including A&M-Corpus Christi’s Shadrack Songok (10,000-meter run) in 2007 and 2008 and McNeese State’s Brad Gebauer (pole vault) in 2007. The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner and Charles Aus-

tin, Liudmila Litvinova, along with other Olympians. With the addition of five more All-American seasons in 2009, the league continues to find national success in both indoor and outdoor track and field. In the indoor circuit, the Southland boasts 58 unique all-time All-Americans that have won a combined 10 national championships. Likewise in the spring outdoor season, the league has seen 132 different All-Americans, including 105 men and 27 women, combine to win 20 national championships. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a current member of the PGA Tour. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, including each of the previous two seasons with both Lamar and UT Arlington qualifying for a regional. Additionally, in 2009, five individuals from the Southland also earned a spot in a regional. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968, and also produced PGA player Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and Lamar tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. Southland tennis has also experienced national prominence. UT Arlington AllAmerican Andy Leber was the 2002 ITA/ Ted Farnsworth National Senior Co-Player of the Year after a 43-3 record and earning the nation’s No. 2 ranking. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana won 46 consecutive conference matches during a four-year period that began in 2005. The conference has increased sponsorship and championships opportunities for female student-athletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. In 2007, Stephen F. Austin became the first Southland team to score a goal in the NCAA tournament, while Texas State became the first women’s golf program to compete in the NCAA tournament.

The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female student-athlete with the highest grade-point average. Also, studentathletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the Southland’s annual All-Academic teams and Commissioner’s Honor Roll. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training such as academics, citizenship and leadership to school-aged students in Southland communities. With the F.L.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE COMMISSIONER

TOM BURNETT

Commissioner of the Southland Conference Tom Burnett was named the Southland Conference’s sixth commissioner on Dec. 23, 2002, and brought a diverse background in athletics administration experience at the conference and national levels. Now in his seventh year with the league, Burnett has helped to enhance the Southland’s membership, with addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in July, 2006. The new membership gave the league 12 member institutions, the largest configuration in the conference’s 45-year history. The league’s television exposure has also expanded under his watch with the creation of the Southland Conference Television Network in 2008. This new broadcast venture provided more than 35 unique sports and promotional telecasts to a potential viewing audience of more than 13 million television households in 2008-09. The Network will enter its second year of broadcasting this fall with 31 live events planned throughout the academic year. The Southland also signed a five-year agreement with the ESPN family of networks in 2005, and the league has had longstanding relationships with Fox Sports Net Southwest and Cox Sports Television. In 2004, Burnett also began the league’s renewed efforts to secure corporate sponsorships. Since then, the Conference has secured sponsorship agreements with State Farm Insurance, Capital One Bank, American Airlines, Royal Purple Motor Oil, Best Western Hotels, O’Reilly Auto Parts, BellSouth, Aeropostale, Academy Sports and Outdoors and Advantage Rent-A-Car. He also initiated efforts to bring the Southland Conference Basketball Tournaments to a neutral site in the Houston area, giving the league a year-end celebration of the sport at a centralized location near much of the Southland’s largest alumni and student bases. Prior to joining the Southland, Burnett spent nearly 11 years in a number of roles with the Sun Belt Conference, including stints as associate and assistant commissioner, and director of communications. He also served two years on the staff of the American South Conference.

His previous responsibilities included championships administration, public and media relations, television production and negotiation, scheduling, marketing, NCAA championship and committee service, and football bowl experience. While at the Sun Belt, Burnett worked in the development of football as a league-sponsored sport, and was an administrator with the New Orleans Bowl, which began in 2001. He also produced the Sun Belt’s television packages with ESPN Regional Television, which debuted in 2002. In addition, he has experience negotiating television agreements with regional sports networks such as Fox Sports Net, Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast and numerous local television stations and cable systems. He also provided oversight of Sun Belt championship events and administered in excess of 100 league tournaments. In 2000, he began exclusively administering the Sun Belt’s men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, which grew from minimal financial successes into events that grossed the conference $1.2 million during a three-year period. Burnett has also served in an administrative capacity with numerous NCAA events, including national championships in men’s and women’s basketball, track and field, baseball and volleyball. Recently named to both the NCAA’s Division I Committee on Academic Performance and the Division I Football Academic Working Group, Burnett also served as the FCS Vice President for the Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA) in 2007-08. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for NCAA Football, the organization that serves to improve, promote and protect college football for those who play, coach and support the game. In addition, he represented the Southland Conference on the NCAA Division I Management Council in 2004-05, and served on the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Governance Committee from 2004-06. Burnett previously served on the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel, and the NCAA Baseball Rules Committee. Burnett, 44, is a native of Houston, Texas, and a 1988 graduate of Louisiana Tech University, where he studied journalism and spent one year as the sports editor of the school’s student newspaper. He and his wife Tracy, a native of Baton Rouge, La., are the parents of a son, Cole, and a daughter, Jesse.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TELEVISION NETWORK

“We’re very excited about the second season of Southland Network programming,” Southland Conference commissioner Tom Burnett said. “The league had more total television productions in 2008-09 than ever before, and the Network will feature even more live football this year.” In 2009-10, Southland TV is making plans for its second year of high-quality sports programming and will televise 31 live events, including 11 football games, 16 basketball games and the championship games from the soccer, volleyball, softball and baseball conference tournaments. “We could have never imagined the fantastic response the Network has received from our affiliates, sponsors and viewers during the first year,” Burnett said. “It’s obvious that this is desired programming, and we look forward to televising more and more.” The Southland Conference plans to announce affiliate agreements before the football season kicks off in September. Be sure to visit the Southland Web site to check for all affiliate information and announcements. All network programming will be available on SLC NOW, the Southland’s streaming video channel on its Web site: southland.org.

SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE ACADEMIC AWARDS

14

The Southland Conference presents five academic accolades to recognize student-athletes within the league who demonstrate excellence in the classroom and superior athletic achievements on the field or court. These academic honors, sponsored by Capital One Bank, include the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll, the All-Academic teams, the Southland Conference StudentAthlete of the Year, the Southland Conference Scholar-Athlete awards and the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship awards.

Capital One Bank/Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll

Now called the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll, the Southland Conference acknowledges all participants in all sports sponsored by the league and its member institutions. The honor roll is released within 30 days at the conclusion of the fall and spring semesters, recognizing student-athletes who maintained a 3.00 or better grade point average. Student-athletes, nominated by their respective academic advisors, must have been eligible to compete in a Conference sport during the academic year in which the nomination occurs. The honor roll was first dubbed Southland Conference AllAcademic and then the Southland Conference Honor Roll. It changed for a third time to the Commissioner’s List, beginning with the 1996-97 season, before acquiring its current title in the 2003-04 academic year.

Capital One Bank/Southland Conference All-Academic Teams

The Southland Conference announces all-academic teams in all 17 championship sports to recognize those student-athletes who excel in the classroom and on the field or court. Nominated by each institution’s athletic media relations director and selected by a voting contingent made up of sports information directors, head coaches and academic or compliance administrators, all-academic team members must have posted at least a cumulative 3.00 GPA, completed at least one full academic year at the member institution prior to the season in which the nomination occurs, and competed in a minimum of 50 percent of the sport’s contests during the most recently completed season. Student-athletes receiving CoSIDA national academic honors are automatically named to the Southland all-academic first team. All-academic teams are announced in conjunction with the Conference’s Student-Athlete of the Year in each sport. One team shall be selected for cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field within 30 days following the outdoor championship.

Capital One Bank/Southland Conference Scholar-Athlete

Beginning with the 1996-97 season, the Conference annually recognizes the outstanding male and female student-athletes from each of the league’s member institutions. Student-athletes must be a letterwinner with a minimum 3.20 cumulative grade point average and have completed at least two years of intercollegiate competition at the school from which he/she was nominated. The student-athletes are selected by their respective institution administrators and receive recognition at the Honors Ceremony, which takes place during the league’s Spring Meeting.

F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship

The F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship is presented annually to graduating male and female letterwinners with the highest cumulative grade point averages during their enrollment at Southland member schools. The $2,500 scholarship must be applied to graduate study at an institution of the recipient’s choice. The award was established in memory of Dr. F.L. McDonald in 1996-97, a former president of Lamar University and 1999 Southland Hall of Honor inductee. McDonald served as Lamar’s president in 1963 when the Southland Conference was established and is considered one of the league’s founding fathers. Each member institution may nominate one male and one female student-athlete who meet the following criteria: a letterwinner in a Conference sport, be on track to graduate during the spring in which they are nominated or the subsequent summer, and plan to attend graduate school no later than the second fall following the receipt of the award.

Capital One Bank/Southland Conference Student-Athlete of the Year

Established in the 2002-03 academic year, the Conference honors one student-athlete from each of the 17 championship sports who achieves excellence in academics, athletics and community/campus service. The student-athlete of the year, selected by the league’s Awards Committee, will have attained athletics achievement for at least two years at the nominating institution, possess at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average and demonstrated extracurricular service at his/her campus and/or community. The recipient of the student-athlete of the year award is announced in conjunction with the all-academic teams in each sport.

DIVISIONAL ALIGNMENTS The Southland Conference went to divisional play in 2006-07. Every two years, Lamar and Stephen F.

Stephen F. Austin Picked to Win Southland Stephen F. Austin received nine first-place votes in the coaches’ poll and 10 in the sports information directors’ poll to be picked the Southland Conference’s preseason favorite. The Ladyjacks return all five starters including 2008-09 first-team all-conference selection, Whitney Cormier, from a squad which finished second in the East Division and had 10 conference wins. SFA received 63 points in the coaches’ poll and 65 in the SID poll to out-distance West Division front-runner Lamar, which received six first-place votes. The Lady Cardinals received 59 points in the coaches’ poll and five first-place votes and 56 points from the SID poll. Behind SFA in the East Division, Southeastern Louisiana received 52 points in both the coaches’ and SID polls with three first-place votes. UT Arlington, the defending regular season champion, rounds out the top four teams in the preseason polls. The Mavs received 53 points and three firstplace votes in the coaches’ poll and tied Lamar in first-place votes with five but fell one point shy of the Lady Cardinals, receiving 55 points. Six All-Conference Honorees Return Six players from last season’s All-Southland Conference teams return for the 2009-10 season including Stephen F. Austin senior guard Whitney Cormier, as the league’s only first-team returning player. Other preseason first-team honorees are Lamar senior forward Brittney Williams, a 2008-09 second-team all-conferecne selection. Lamar senior forward Darika Hill, UT Arlington junior guard Tamara Simmons and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi junior guard Jade Davis each received third-team all-conference honors in 2008-09 and round out the preseason first-team selections. UT Arlington junior guard Shalyn Martin, a 2008-09 third-team all-conference selection, returns as a preseason second-team member. Rounding out the 2009-10 preseason team selections are UTSA junior guard Amber Gregg, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi senior center Elisa Beagle, Lamar junior guard Jenna Plumley and Texas State senior guard Victoria Davis. Lamar leads all Southland teams with three preseason selections including two first-team members. UT Arlington and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi each have two and Stephen F. Austin, UTSA and Texas State all had one each. Returning players who were named AllSouthland Conference following the 2008-09 season were automatically placed on the 2009-10 preseason teams. Open positions were filled by nomination and vote of the league’s head coaches. Southland Tournament Returns to Katy, Texas for Next Two Years After two great tournaments in Katy, Texas, in 2008 and 2009, the Southland Conference has signed up for another two years, meaning the 2010 and 2011 Southland Confernece tournaments will be played at the Leonard E. Merrell Center. This year’s tournament moves up one day and begins with the quarterfinal round on Tuesday, March 9. The semifinals and finals, which will be televised by the Southland Conference Television Network, will take place Wednesday, March 10 and the championship game will be played Friday, March 12 with a 7 p.m. tipoff. This year’s tournament will be the 11th in league history to be played at a neutral site. The tournament was played in Shreveport, La., from 1995-2001 and was held in Houston in 2007 before moving to Katy in 2008. UTSA Claims Second Consecutive Southland Conference Tournament Title in 2009 Onika Anderson scored 18 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as No. 2 seed UTSA upset No. 1 UT Arlington, 74-63, to claim its second consecutive State Farm Southland Conference Basketball Tournament championship. Named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player in large part for her efforts on the offensive glass in the final, Anderson and the Roadrunners won an automatic bid into the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championships for the second consecutive season. Joining Anderson, who had an impressive nine offensive boards against the Mavericks, on the State Farm Southland Conference All-Tournament Team were fellow Roadrunners Monica Gibbs and Jordan Stark and UT Arlington’s Candice Champion and Shalyn Martin. The reigning champions didn’t clinch their second title until late in the second half following a UT Arlington run that cut what had been a 15-point deficit down to just 61-59 after a Tamara Simmons three-point shot with 5:13 remaining. From that point on Gibbs, the Southland Player of the Year, took over from at point and hit a layup-and-one and another jumper to push the lead back to seven points. Stark set a tournament record for three-pointers made (7) and attempted (16). Amber Gregg and Gibbs added five more points on free throws to give UTSA an 11-2 run and a 72-61 lead it would hold for the remainder of the game. UT Arlington’s second-half run nearly put the top-seeded team back on top for the first time since the opening minutes of the game. Down 49-34, the Mavericks used strong performances from Martin and Simmons to get within two points for the first time since 16:37 remained in the first half. The Roadrunners, who led for virtually the entire first half, held a 32-27 advantage heading into the half. Both teams traded baskets for a majority of the opening 20 minutes after UTSA jumped out to a 15-8 lead on a jumper by Gibbs, who along with Stark, had nine points in the frame. Anderson added eight points and eight rebounds in the opening half. UT Arlington also had a pair of nine-point first-half scorers in Martin, who also had six rebounds, and Tamara Simmons. The Mavericks took their only lead of the day after Simmons opened the scoring with a triple from the wing 30 seconds into the game. A pair of free throws from Champion quickly pushed the lead to 6-2, but UTSA immediately went on an 11-0 run and controlled the pace of play through halftime.

2009-10 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE BASKETBALL


2009-10 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE PREVIEW UTSA Falls in Overtime to No. 2 Seed Baylor Sophomore guard Amber Gregg scored a season-high 23 points, but it wasn’t enough as five Baylor players scored in double figures to lead the Lady Bears to a 87-82 overtime win against UTSA (24-9) in first-round action of the NCAA Tournament at the United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas. Senior guard Monica Gibbs, playing in the last game for the orange and blue, ended her stellar four-year career with 16 points and 11 assists to go along with eight rebounds, just missing out on her fourth triple-double. The Stillwater, Okla., native recorded her 13th double-double of the season to bring her career total to 40. Senior forward Onika Anderson ended her collegiate career with a game-high 14 boards and 12 points en route to her 16th double-double of the season. Sophomore Jordan Stark added 16 points, while Ryba Pawlaczyk, who played in her last game for UTSA, chipped in with 11. Melissa Jones led the Lady Bears with a team-high 21 points, while Jhasmine Player added 15 points. Gibbs opened the extra frame with a pull up jumper to give UTSA the 71-69 lead, but Baylor took a 77-72 lead with help of an 8-1 run with under two minutes to play the extra period. Stark hit three freebies to pull UTSA within two points, 77-75, a minute later. The Lady Bears went 10-for-10 from the free throw line to hold off the Runners. Gregg and Stark back-to-back 3-pointers capped off a 17-3 run to start the second half and take a 46-39 advantage with 16:02 to go. However, Melissa Jones’ jumper gave Baylor the 57-56 lead with under nine minute showing on the clock. Anderson netted four of the next eight points for the Roadrunners for the 64-60 edge with 4:50 remaining. The Lady Bears scored five quick points to regain the lead with 4:02 left. Gregg’s free throws knotted the game at 67-67 with less than a minute to play. Jones knocked down two free throws to give BU the 69-67 lead, but Stark answered right back with two of her own at the charity stripe to send it into overtime. Player missed on a would be game-winner as the game clock expired. UTSA took its first lead of the game on Stark’s 3-pointer from the right wing at 11-9 with 12:42 to go in the first half. Player made a pair of free throws tied it 30 seconds later. Pawlaczyk’s corner pocket three ball gave the Roadrunners back their lead at the 11-minute mark of the frame. The Lady Bears went on a 14-5 run over the next six minutes grabbing a six-point margin (32-26). Rachel Allison and Ashley Fields combined for 10 of the 14 points scored during that stretch. Gibbs connected on a pulled up 3-pointer from the top of the key cutting Baylor’s deficit to three with 2:12 remaining. Gregg made good on a pair of freebies to make it a seven-point ball game, 38-31, at the half. The Roadrunners close out their season with a school-record 24 wins. UT Arlington Falls to Oklahoma State in WNIT UT Arlington fell short of recording its first WNIT victory against Big 12 opponent-Oklahoma State, 82-72. Senior Candice Champion played a solid 40 minutes in the final game of her collegiate career, recording her 16th double-double with a 22-point and 16 rebounds. Champion went 7-of-20 from the field including 8-of-10 from the free throw line. The Mavs jumped out to a 5-0 lead but the Cowgirls made their way back to tie the game at 7-7 with 16:14 on the clock. UTA regained the lead for the final time in the game at 11-9 following a jumper by Tamara Simmons with 14:47 in the first half. UT Arlington came within one, three times, with the final time coming at the 9:59 mark. The Mavs applied full court pressure to the Cowgirls offense but OSU broke the press and connected on several buckets, taking a nine point advantage with 3:03 remaining in the first stanza. A layup with 22 seconds left in the first half gave the Cowgirls a 46-35 halftime lead over UTA. Champion led the Mavs with 15 first half points, seven of those points coming from the charity stripe and grabbed eight boards while Simmons wasn’t far behind with nine. UTA finished the first half shooting 32.4 percent (12-of-37) from the field compared to 51.6 percent (16-of-31) from the floor and was even in rebounds at 22-22. OSU took advantage of two missed jumpers and a turnover by the Mavs in the opening minutes of the second half, to go on a 6-0 run and lead by as many as 17 points, at the 18:38 mark.Despite having several players in foul trouble including UTA’s leading rebounder-Erin Dixon, the Mavericks fought their way back to within nine points, at 66-57 with 8:31 remaining in the game. The Mavs came as close as six points following an offensive rebound and put back by Dixon in the final four minutes of the game. Andrea Riley’s quickness and Shaunte Smith’s inside game was too much for the Mavericks to contain, keeping them as far away as possible. OSU’s top performer, Riley led the Cowgirls with 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting from the field including 8-of-11 from the free throw line and dished out seven assists. For the game, UTA finished shooting 37.7 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from three-point range and 76.5 percent from the charity stripe. Simmons finished with 22 points on 9-of-20 shooting from the field including 4-of-11 from three-point range and dished out five assists. UTA concluded the season with a 22-11 overall mark. Its fourth 20-plus win season in the last five years.

La’Terricia Dobin, Northwestern State The Southland Conference has had its share of women’s basketball tradition, with Louisiana-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four, and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport as one of seven programs in the NCAA with over 800 wins. Women’s basketball standouts have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Sue Gunter, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Blair and Gunter were both honored recently as two of the NCAA’s all-time greatest coaches. In the national polls, the league has also experienced success as Stephen F. Austin, which joined the Southland Conference in 1988, finished No. 19 in 1988, No. 11 in 1989, No. 6 in 1990, No. 14 in 1991, No. 4 in 1992, No. 12 in 1993, No. 19 in 1997 and No. 19 in 1998. In addition, former member LouisianaMonroe finished No. 13 in 1984 and No. 2 in 1985. In 1983 Louisiana-Monroe was the league’s first representative in the NCAA Tournament, winning the Southland’s first postseason contest in an opening round game that same season, followed by another win the following year. In 1985, Louisiana-Monroe showed the league’s progress, as it advanced to the Final Four. In 28 NCAA Tournaments, the league has won a first or opening round game 12 times. The league has competed in the WNIT nine times, as Northwestern State became the first school to compete in the event in 1993. The Demons got the league’s first WNIT win that same season, before ending the tournament in the consolation game. The next season, Louisiana-Monroe advanced to the third round.

2009-10 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE BASKETBALL

In the 1995 WNIT, Northwestern State advanced to the championship game, the second trip in school history, as it played in the 1986 WNIT Championship before joining the Southland Conference in 1988. In 2008 Texas State made their first appearance in the WNIT with a buzzerbeater victory over Prairie View A&M by Player of the Year Joyce Ekworomadu for the league’s first postseason win in women’s basketball in 13 years. UT Arlington made its first appearance in the WNIT last season after claiming its first regular-season title under Coach Samantha Morrow. Multiple players have continued their careers professionally. Most recently, Central Arkansas’ Caronia Randle and Renita Dobbins played with the Arkansas Starz of the WBCBL, while Stephen F. Austin’s Charity Egenti was invited to WNBA training camp with the Phoenix Mercury. Former Central Arkansas assistant coach Carone Harris, a two-time All-American and the NCAA career leader in steals in all divisions was named one of the NCAA’s all-time finest women’s basketball players, had a WNBA tryout with the Washington Mystics, before being invited to camp with the Chicago Sky. 2006 Southland Player of the Year Terra Wallace was invited to the WNBA’s Pre-Draft Camp at Cleveland State University. Other players to continue their careers professionally include UT Arlington’s Rola Ogunove, who played in Europe, as did Northwestern State’s La’Terrica Dobin, the 2004 Southland Player of the Year who led the nation in assists for three-straight years. Texas State’s Tamara Thompson, the 2005 Southland Newcomer of the Year, played professionally overseas, after playing in Israel in 2006, while Mercy Okorie played for the Nigerian National Team. Stephen F. Austin’s Portia Hill who played professionally in France, was on the 1990 U.S. National Team, while Katrina Price played professionally in the ABL in the late 1990s. In addition, Texas State’s Ekworomadu, along with former UTSA standout Vivian Ewalefo and SFA standout Charity Egenti, the 2007 Southland Player of the Year, all played for the Nigerian National team. Over the years, Southland Conference schools have earned victories over Tennessee, Duke, LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Arizona, Baylor, Florida, George Washington, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State, Maryland, Mississippi, Mississippi State, UNLV, Texas A&M, Texas, Southern California and Missouri.

CENTRAL ARKANSAS After a 6-23 season in his first year as head coach Matt Daniel and his staff set out to overhaul the program and begin an immediate turnaround in hopes of returning the Sugar Bears to the success they enjoyed during a 25-year streak without a losing season that ended two years ago. To that end, the roster underwent major reconstruction in the offseason with only five players returning from last year’s squad. With virtually a clean slate, Daniel and staff hit the recruiting trail hard and brought in a nine-member class to fill out the roster with student-athletes who fit the new coach’s vision. After being hired mid-season in 2008 and not taking over until the end of the 2007- 08 season, Daniel entered his first year having had a brief period to recruit his own players to add to an otherwise inherited roster. This season, 13 of the 14 on the Sugar Bears’ roster are players evaluated and recruited by Daniel’s staff (with junior forward Jamye Adair the lone holdover), making it the first team that truly has his stamp on it. The team will likely be one of the youngest in the NCAA. With 10 freshmen and sophomores and no seniors on the roster, Daniel feels the talent level is closer to where it needs to be, although the team’s youth and inexperience will provide a major hurdle this season. Only 13 players will be available this season with only six combined years of Division I experience returning – five of those coming last season. Three of UCA’s five returners saw action in the backcourt last season, with Jasmine Canser, Nakeia Guiden and Marci Moffitt combining to make 35 starts last season – all as true freshmen. Adair returns as the Sugar Bears’ leading scorer and rebounder from last season (8.5 and 3.8) in addition to leading the team in three-pointers made (40-114, 35.1 percent) and free throw percentage (82.5). She is joined by returning center Megan Moss, a 6-foot-3 junior from Coolidge, Ariz. Moss played in 25 games last season and made eight starts in her first year with the program. Moss’ younger sister Chantel, a 6-2 freshman, has been brought in to add to the team’s depth at center. At forward, Megan Herbert will step in and immediately be counted on to make significant contributions. The 5-11 Herbert was Miss Basketball in Arkansas and led her Shiloh Christian team to a state championship. Herbert averaged 25.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per game during her senior season and accumulated more than 2,800 points and 1,300 rebounds over the course of her career. Desiree Rogers, another 5-11 forward, will also give the Bears more weapons in the frontcourt. Rogers played for three state championship teams during her high school career and was a four-time all-state selection. The Sugar Bears have also added Rogers’ high school teammate, 5-11 forward/center Jasmine Curtis. Brea Banks comes in with two years remaining after spending the previous two seasons at Moberly Area CC in Missouri. At 5-11, she will provide the Sugar Bears with an experienced, more mature option in the frontcourt.

MATT DANIEL Head Coach

Harding University, 1998 Record at UCA: 6-23, 2nd Season Overall: 6-23, 2nd Season When Central Arkansas needed a leader for its burgeoning women’s basketball program, the school’s administration sought a charismatic, progressive coach who could quickly restore the long-standing winning tradition of the Sugar Bears. That search began, and abruptly ended, with Matt Daniel. Daniel, 33, quickly developed a reputation as one of the nation’s most tireless and spirited young coaches as he made a rapid ascent through the ranks on his way to his first Division I head coaching job. Entering his second season, he has continued to add to that reputation. After his first year at UCA, Daniel set out to make a quick turnaround with the program. By assembling a nine-member recruiting class including Arkansas’ Miss Basketball, a national Top-40 guard and a handful of state champions, they have begun that process in earnest. When Daniel took the reins as the 12th coach in program history, he brought with him an impressive resume that includes stints at Big 12, Pac 10 and Southland schools, along with one of the nation’s most successful prep programs.

Jamye Adair

Nakeia Guiden

Daniel was an all-state performer at Jonesboro High, and was named Arkansas’ Mr. Basketball in 1994. He began his collegiate career at Colorado in 199495, guiding the Buffaloes to the NIT and becoming the first freshman to earn a postseason start in the school’s history.

LAMAR Coming off last season’s record-setting 20-win campaign and fielding a team consisting of six returning letterwinners, three redshirt players and six newcomers, Lamar supporters are expecting big things from the 2009-10 edition of the Lady Cardinals. With three of the top four scorers and four of the top six from last year’s squad back in the fold, forming a strong nucleus for another competitive outfit should not be a problem for head coach Larry Tidwell and his staff. Williams, Smith and Hill combined for 674 rebounds last season, representing 56.3 percent of the Lady Cardinals’ total. The 5-foot-11 Smith led the way with an 8.6 average, while the six foot Hill averaged 7.1 and the 5-10 Williams averaged 6.0. Williams is the Lady Cards’ top returning scorer with a 12.0 points-per-game average, while Hill averaged 11.0 and Smith 7.0. Departed guard Nikki Williams was the leading scorer with a 14.3 ppg. average, and returning guard Ang Green was fourth on the team with an 8.8 norm. “Having a healthy Ashley Crawford back into the mix will mean a lot for our guard play,” said Tidwell. “Also, the experience Ang Green will bring to the perimeter will be very valuable. “We lost three really good seniors in Nikki Williams, Emily Spickler and Agnija Reke. They made contributions in a lot of areas. Losing the scoring punch of Nikki Williams is an area that needs to be addressed, but we have added some players who should help us in that regard.” Redshirt players Jenna Plumley, who transferred from the University of Oklahoma, Kalis Loyd of Malmoe Sweden and Myriam Igoufe of Bourges, France promise to add scoring punch to the Lady Card attack. “With Plumley, you get the total package of scoring and defending on the perimeter,” said Tidwell. “She brings abilities to the Lady Cardinals that we haven’t seen in a long, long time. “Myriam and Kalis both have international experience which makes them veterans on the court already in our preseason work. Loyd is one of the best athletes I’ve coached in 35 years in the business, and Igoufe will be one of the best on-ball defenders to ever put on the red-and-white of Lamar University.” The Lady Cardinals’ recruiting class, which consists of guards Jasmin Henderson, Taylor Hays and Krista Phillips and forwards Aleksandra Miletic, Monique Whittaker and Danielle Heithoff along with returning two-year letterwinner Brittany Hendrix will help give the Lady Cards more balance than they’ve had in recent seasons. “We got great steals in Henderson, Hays and Miletic,” said Tidwell. “Then you add players like Whittaker and Heithoff to that mix, and they will give us more quality depth than we’ve ever had. “With teams like Minnesota, Baylor, Texas Tech and Texas A&M on our non-conference schedule, it’s going to make reaching the 20-victory plateau again very difficult, but that’s not our main focus. The biggest thing we want to accomplish is to advance to postseason play beyond the Southland Conference Tournament. We’re talking about the NCAA Tournament or at least the Women’s NIT.”

LARRY TIDWELL Head Coach

Austin College, 1976 Record at LU: 39-24, Third Season Overall: 39-24, Third Season Since taking over the Lady Cardinal helm, Larry Tidwell has taken the Lamar program to heights not scaled since the early 1990s. Last season’s 20-victory total was Lamar’s first since the 1991-1992 season, and Tidwell’s first Lady Cardinal team in 2007-2008 posted the school’s first winning seasons in 13 years. The Lady Cards’ two-year victory total of 39 under Tidwell is the most in back-to-back seasons since the 1990-1991 and 1991-1992 teams combined for 50 wins. Tidwell’s first Lamar teamed pulled off a stunner by advancing to the championship game of the 2008 Southland Conference Tournament with wins of 60-48 over preseason favorite Stephen F. Austin and 63-50 over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Last season, the Lady Cardinals again defeated SFA in the first round of the tournament before falling to UT Arlington in the semifinals. Tidwell came to Lamar in 2007 after serving eight seasons as an assistant coach and recruiter at TCU, helping the Lady Frogs achieve 173 victories and seven consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. In 2002, he earned AFLAC National Assistant coach of the Year recognition.

A 34-year coaching veteran, Tidwell has worked in the Big 12, Western Athletic and Conference USA as well as the former Southwest Conference. He is credited with helping sign, develop and coach over 20 student athletes who have taken their talents to the professional level.

McNEESE STATE The Cowgirls are looking to build on one of the best starts in the program’s history. McNeese State posted a 14-16 overall record in 2009 which is the most wins since 1999, making a second consecutive appearance under coach Brooks Donald Williams. The Cowgirls reload this year with one senior, two juniors, six sophomores, and four freshmen. Kayla Armstrong looks to be one of the leaders on the team being the lone senior. “Kayla is coming back after a tough junior season. She looks great and seems one hundred percent healed. We are very excited to have her back on the floor,” said coachWilliams. Kiara Johnson and Ne’Aisha Anderson, who are a part of Williams’ first recruiting class, have shown vast improvement and look to have a big impact on and off the court. “What an awesome thing to see the growth of Kiara and Ne’Aisha. Both of these young ladies have been instrumental in this program’s development on and off the floor.” With five returning sophomores (Brooke Froeba, Kendra Wells, Raiyawna Gaitlin, Ja’Niqua Kendrix, and Lauren Nutter) having a full year under their belt and one junior college transfer (Candace LaCombe), this class could have the largest impact determining the success of the team. “This is definitely a special recruiting class. They all played valuable minutes last year as freshmen which will help them step in and produce as sophomores.” Brooke Froeba, came to McNeese as a walk-on, earned her spot in the starting lineup during conference play last season and was awarded a full scholarship this summer. “Brooke came every day and worked. She has a tremendous work ethic and drive to be the very best. Our players love playing for her. To have a great point guard, those qualities are a must if your team is going to be successful.” Kendra Wells led the team in rebounding and double-doubles in her freshman year and finished as the ninth best rebounder in conference. “Kendra had some success in scoring and rebounding at the end of our conference season. She has a lot of confidence with this new team.” Raiyawna Gaitlin showed great improvement as she switched from a post player to a guard in her transition to collegiate play. She has worked hard in the off-season to improve all areas of her game. Ja’Niqua Kendrix showed great promise last year as an all-around post player with great offensive moves. She has worked hard to shore up her defense in order to be more of a presence in the lineup. Lauren Nutter, who was the starting center early in the season for the Cowgirls, has worked hard to adjust her game to the collegiate level in order to help her team even more this year. Candace LaCombe, an LSU-Eunice transfer, should make an immediate impact in her first season with the Cowgirls. She broke three national records in her freshman year at LSU-Eunice. Rounding out the squad are three true freshmen and one redshirt freshman. Adrienne Minor, a redshirt freshman, was injured in the first exhibition game last season, anxiously awaits her return to the hardwood. Kylie Leonards is entering the program from Fairview High School, a perennial high school powerhouse. Leonards was awarded Louisiana’s Miss Basketball and was inducted into the Southwest Louisiana Hall of Fame her senior year.

BROOKS DONALD WILLIAMS Head Coach

Mississippi State, 2000 Record at MCN: 24-37,Third Season Overall: 24-37,Third Season Brooks Donald Williams enters her third season at McNeese State having led the Cowgirls to the Southland tournament in both opportunities, winning 10 or more games in each of the last two seasons. Last year, Williams guided the Cowgirls to thier best regular season since 199-00 with a 14-16 overall mark and 6-10 conference record. Of the 14 wins one was over Louisiana Tech, a three-time National Champion, the most significant win in program history. In 2008, McNeese broke seven school records (six team, one individual), tied two and tied a conference record with16 three-pointers made in a win over Lamar. The Cowgirls handed the Lady Cardinals their first home loss of the season that night and also upset Stephen F. Austin and conference tournament champion and NCAA participant UTSA. In the past year, Williams was named one of Southwest Louisiana’s up and coming under 40 recipients by the Times/Fusion Five Magazine. In her first full recruiting season at McNeese, Williams continued to show why she is a proven recruiter by signing the Louisiana 5A state MVP and the Northeast Louisiana Player of the year. In her second signing class, she signed Louisiana’s Miss Basketball and Class B MVP in freshman guard Kylie Leonards.

NICHOLLS Nicholls Women’ Basketball underwent a transition period during Head Coach DoBee Plaisance’s first season at the helm of the program in 2008-09, and with the influx of her first recruiting class, good things are to come on the hardwood for the Colonels. “I preach to our team everyday that if you do the right things off the court, in the classroom and in the community that they will find themselves in the right place on the court to make the plays that we need to win games,” said Plaisance. “I have to give it to last year’s team. They gave it everything they had; put forth all the effort necessary and never quit no matter what the score was.” The 2009-10 squad features a total of four returning players, with the rest of the squad being made up of junior college transfers and two freshmen. Of the returning players, sophomore forward Jasmine Hoskins leads all with a 10.3 points per game average to go along with a 4.5 rebounds per game mark. She leads all returning players in both categories. Also among the returning players that saw substantial playing time last season is sophomore guard Danielle Douglas. Douglas started 20 of the Colonels 27 games last season, and is second among the returning core with 3.9 rebounds per game mark. Other returning players include sophomore guards Portia Washington and Ke’arrah Jackson. “We have a solid core of retuning players that have been in the system a full season and know what is expected of them,” said Plaisance. “I look to them for leadership with our newcomers, both on and off the court. Our success is dependent on them.” All four of the junior college additions: Jamia Akins, Ricshanda Bickham, Cassie Hearon and Chelsea McNamee come from solid junior college programs. Akins was part of a championship squad and Chipola, while both Hearon and McNamee come to Nicholls by way of Northwest Florida State. Bickham, a resident of New Orleans prior to Katrina, and comes back to her home state via Connors College. The two prep standout additions are Aliesha Allen and Kierra Smith. All of the newcomers bring something different to the table; however, they all share the character trait that Plaisance is looking for to build a program. “They all work hard, and give it everything they have in everything they do. We are very high on character, and you have to be self-motivated and want to better yourself to better the team. We don’t have a superstar on our team, but we have a good group of honest young ladies that are going to do what it takes to win.” The Colonels schedule will demand a high level of character, playing some stiff nonconference opponents that include regional foes New Orleans, Louisiana Tech, LSU, and South Alabama.

DOBEE PLAISANCE Head Coach

Southern Miss, 1985 Record at NICH: 2-25, Second Season Overall: 159-247, 14th Season A new era in Lady Colonel basketball began under DoBee Plaisance in 2008-09 as she came to Nicholls by way of Loyola University of New Orleans where she served in the same capacity. Plaisance enters her second season in Thibodaux, La., and is the ninth head coach in program history. She came to Nicholls after 13 seasons as head coach at Loyola where she successfully built a dominant NAIA program. With the arrival of scholarships at Loyola in 2004, Plaisance posted an impressive 81-33 record that included back-to-back Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular season titles in 2006-07 and 2007-08. Her 2006-07 squad finished 25-9, while her 2007-08 notched a school best 28-7 mark. She was named the GCAC Coach of the Year in consecutive years, 2007 and 2008. In the 2007-08 season, Plaisance led the Wolfpack to the Elite Eight of the NAIA Women’s Basketball National Championship Tournament. The appearance in the Elite 8 was the furthest that Loyola has ever advanced in the NAIA National Tournament in the program’s history. Loyola also eclipsed team records for wins (28) and highest ranking (15) .

Jasmine Hoskins

Portia Washington

Plaisance, a New Orleans native, was a fouryear starter throughout her college career, playing two years at the University of New Orleans and two years at Southeastern Louisiana University.

NORTHWESTERN STATE The 2008-09 season ended too soon for the Northwestern State Lady Demons as they were bounced from the Southland Conference Tournament in the semifinal round by eventual champion UTSA after finishing the season with an 18-13 mark. But even though the year was cut short, it was still the most successful season since the 2004 Southland championship team finished 24-7. This year’s squad will be looking to build on that success as the team returns three starters and eight letterwinners to go along with five newcomers.

Sherrion Thomas

Heading the list of returners is junior guard Brooke Shepherd who will be the Lady Demons’ top returning scorer. Shepherd averaged 8.9 points in 29 minutes a game last year while starting all 31 games. Also at guard, senior Lyndzee Greene returns and will be counted on for her strong leadership role. Greene started 28 games and averaged 4.9 points and 1.7 assists per game. Senior forward Sherrion Thomas, who suffered a late season knee injury last season, will return to the lineup to help out underneath. Thomas, standing at 6-foot1, averaged 5.9 points and 4.6 rebounds.

JENNIFER GRAF Head Coach

Northwestern State, 2000 Record at NWLA: 71-76, Sixth Season Overall: 71-76, Sixth Season Jennifer Graf, one of the youngest head coaches in the country (31), enters her sixth season in charge and her 14th year in the Lady Demon basketball family. Born June 11, 1978 in Covington, La., Graf began her first season as the youngest head coach in Division I. Northwestern had an 86-32 record in her four seasons as an assistant coach, including a 63-15 mark in conference play. In her four seasons as a guard the Lady Demons were 64-39. In her last nine seasons with the program as a player and coach, Northwestern has six years of 22 or more victories. She and former assistant coach Kia Converse are the only Lady Demon basketball players to win the Southland championship as a player and again as a coach. Graf played in 110 games for Northwestern, winning 74, starting 48 times, including all 30 games in her senior year. She was a threetime Academic All- Southland selection and won the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ “Lady Demon of the Year”award as a senior. In her first year as head coach, Graf guided her team to 10 wins in the last 11 games to secure a third-place regular-season finish, a 17-12 record and reached the Southland tournament semifinals.

Brooke Shepherd

Last year was her best as head coach as the Lady Demons finished 18-13 overall and advanced to the semifinals of the Southland tournament.

SAM HOUSTON STATE Ranking as one of the 15 most improved programs in NCAA Division I women’s basketball during the 2008-09 season, the Sam Houston State Bearkats saw marked progress in all phases of the game last year. The Kats jumped from the league cellar in 2008 to tie for fourth in the Southland West Division in 2009. Sam Houston just missed a Southland Conference post-season berth due to a tie-breaker as the odd team out in a three-way tie for the tournament’s last two spots. The Bearkats posted league victories over Stephen F. Austin, Lamar, Central Arkansas, McNeese and swept Texas State both meetings a year after going winless in the Southland. The team’s 7-5 record at home in Johnson Coliseum marked Sam Houston’s best season performance in the facility in the last 10 years. Three Bearkats players averaged in double figures in 2009, something that hasn’t happened in Huntsville since 2002. The Sam Houston women look to have strong leadership from four seniors who all were starters last year. Three - Whitney Smith, Brittany Brooks and Ray Alexander - have been with the program for four years. Smith, a 5-11 forward, is a three-year starter who begins her senior season ranked No. 11 in Bearkat career scoring with 864 points and No. 8 in SHSU career rebounds (489). She averaged 10.3 points and 7.0 rebounds as a junior in 2009. Brooks, a 5-5 guard who led the Bearkats in scoring with a 10.7 average in 2009, begins her senior season ranked No. 21 in Bearkat career scoring with 736 points in 86 games and No. 7 in SHSU all-time assists (270). Alexander, a 5-4 guard, is a fifth-year senior with career totals of 412 points and 161 assists. The fourth senior, Therese Hager started 23 games as a junior college transfer in 2009. She averaged 2.4 points and 3.0 rebounds and was a defensive standout for the Kats. Bre Agnew, a 6-2 sophomore who started 15 times at post last year, will be a key factor for Sam Houston’s inside game. Agnew averaged 7.6 points and 4.8 rebounds. Khamra Echols, a 5-5 sophomore guard, brings additional depth on the perimeter after averaging 5.7 points per contest in 2008-09. Britni Martin, the 5-11 sophomore who lettered in both soccer and basketball for Sam Houston in 2008-09, hopes to return from an August surgery. Martin averaged 10.5 points and 4.0 rebounds as a freshman. To further strengthen the Bearkats for the 2010 campaign, Nichols and her staff have recruited two junior college transfers and three high school seniors. LaTisha Morgan, a 6-2 post player from Moberly Area Community College in Georgia, played on a state championship team in high school. Terrah Austin, a 6-0 forward from Blinn College, ranked third in her NJCAA region in rebounding with 9.0 boards per contest. Junior forward Lauren Tippett, a transfer from San Jacinot Junior College will look to be a solid contributor in her first season in Huntsville.

BRENDA WELCH-NICHOLS Head Coach

Sam Houston State, 1989 Record at SHSU: 15-72, Fourth Season Overall: 147-220,15th Season When Brenda Welch-Nichols returned to her alma mater as head women’s basketball coach on August 23, 2006, there’s no question the Bearkats were rebuilding and the team was a work in progress. After three seasons at the helm, progress is certainly a valid term to describe Nichols’ Kats, on the floor, in the classroom, and in the community. Sam Houston women’s basketball ranked as one of the top 15 most improved programs in NCAA women’s basketball in 2008-09. Last year’s young Bearkat squad just missed a Southland Conference post-season tournament berth placing fourth in the Southland West Division and ending as the odd team out in a three-way tie for the final two playoff spots. A 1988 Sam Houston graduate, Nichols spent four seasons as coach at Mercer University in Macon, Ga., where she constructed a turnaround of the Bear program. In her final year in Macon, the Bears reached the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun conference tournament, losing by five points in overtime after upsetting number three seed East Tennessee State in the first round. The Bears reached the Atlantic Sun tournament in each of Nichols’ four seasons at Mercer and were 41-35 in league play. Nichols completed her master’s degree in health, leisure and sports/physical education at the University of West Florida in 1992.

SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA Winners of two of the last three Southland East Division titles, Southeastern Louisiana heads into the 2009-10 season eager to maintain its spot among the upper echelon of the conference. Despite the loss of a banner senior class, head coach Lori Davis Jones and her staff head into the 2009-10 campaign confident that the talent level has not dropped off. What Jones wants to see is her three seniors – Quantae Thomas, Kim Edmonson and Zevy Ivory – take on the leadership role that the 2008-09 seniors provided – leadership that was vital to the success of last season’s squad. One of the main objectives for Southeastern heading into the 2009-10 season is finding a go-to player to replace Kristy Carlin, a first team All-Southland choice in 200809 who averaged 15.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per contest. Jones and her staff believe the versatile Thomas, who can play on the wing and at the four, is the chief candidate to assume that role. Thomas is not the only Lady Lion returning with plenty of experience, as Edmonson and junior Chelsea Hix provide SLU with a pair of talented shooters at the wings. Edmonson poured in 53 three-pointers in her first season with the program out of Panola College, while Hix – a two-year starter from Canton, Ga. - ranks second in school history in terms of career three-point field goal percentage. Thomas, Edmonson and Hix combined for 116 of Southeastern’s Southland single-season record 220 three-point field goals last season. The Lady Lion backcourt will be provided with an added dimension with the addition of newcomer Mary Fountain, who joins the program from Northwest Florida State College. The athletic Fountain compares favorably to 2008-09 senior Bethany Sinclair, according to the coaching staff. Returning sophomores Gabrielle George and Amber Crenshaw give the Lady Lions two additional skilled shooters. With Thomas having the ability to play both in the backcourt and frontcourt, the Lady Lions feature a deep post corps. Ivory is the most experienced returner back and the top returning rebounder for a team that led the Southland in rebounding margin a season ago. Ivory is joined by sophomore Shauna Stewart and junior Rachel Mackie to give Southeastern a solid returning nucleus down low. Junior college transfers Kasia Gowar – a 6-4 post from Krakow, Poland who was ranked as the nation’s 20th-best junior college center coming out of Northwest Florida State College - and Rashima Jenkins – a 15.6 point per game scorer at East Central (Miss.) Community College, along with freshman Aja Gibson - an All-District performer at Fayette Ware High School - are expected to add to the post production. The lone returning point guard is sophomore Kelli Jenkins, who despite playing only 15 minutes a game posted the most assists (92) by a Lady Lion since 2001-02 and led the Southland with a 1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio. The Lady Lions’ blend of proven veterans and impact newcomers has Jones and her staff very optimistic heading into the season. Despite the loss of key veterans from last season’s squad, the program’s immediate future is bright and Jones expects her squad to be among the Southland’s top teams.

LORI DAVIS JONES Head Coach

Southeastern Louisiana, 1992 Record at SLU: 89-108, Eighth Season Overall: 267-205, 16th Season Lori Davis Jones enters her eighth season at the helm of Southeastern Louisiana where she took over the reins prior to the 200203 season. In her first year, she compiled a 7-20 record in her initial steps to bringing Southeastern’s program back to prominence. In 2008-09, Southeastern enjoyed its best season under Jones, winning their second Southland East Division title in three years and finishing with a 19-11 overall record – the program’s best mark since the 199495 season. The Lady Lions’ 11-5 mark in league play was also the program’s best since joining the Southland prior to the 1997-98 campaign. The Lady Lions featured All-Southland performers Kristy Carlin and Charinee Mitchell, both who were also named to the Academic All-Southland teams. Southeastern also connected on a school and Southland record 220 threepointers in 2008-09. After a successful eight-year stint at Lambuth, Jones enjoyed seven straight 20win seasons, four consecutive berths in the NAIA National Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16 three times. Her 1998-99 team made its first appearance in the NAIA National Tournament and the 1999-2000 team captured the Mid-South Conference Tournament Championship. The Lady Eagles finished in the top-25 rankings for seven consecutive years under Jones, finishing as high as No. 9 in the country.

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN After entering the Southland Conference tournament as the fifth seed in consecutive seasons, the Ladyjacks enter 2009-10 with added excitement. The majority of that excitement surrounds head coach Lee Ann Riley’s veteran squad. Stephen F. Austin returns all but one letterwinner, guard Jessica Gaines, and all five starters, from last year’s 15-14 (.517) season. The Ladyjacks roster, which has been one of the youngest in the conference over the past two seasons, has now become one of the more veteran lineups in the league. The Ladyjacks enter the upcoming season returning the overwhelming majority of its firepower from last season. SFA returns 96 percent of its offense, 97 percent of its rebounding and 99 percent of its shot-blocking capability from last year’s squad. Coach Riley, who is entering her ninth season at the helm, will once again look to senior Whitney Cormier to set the tone offensively. The 5-9, guard really came into her own down the stretch averaging 15.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game during conference action. She led the Ladyjacks averaging 12.1 points and 5.7 rebounds on her way to firstteam all-conference honors last season. Sophomore Tammara Marion appeared to be well on her way to making a push for conference freshman of the year honors before an injury midway through the season slowed her down, but that did not diminish what she was able to accomplish. The sharpshooting guard finished second on the team averaging 9.3 points per game, and led the team from three-point land connecting on 42-of-110 (.382) attempts. The Ladyjacks will also look for junior forward Jordan Ford to return to the form that made her one of the league’s top young players during the 2007-08 season when she averaged 9.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Ford struggled early during her sophomore campaign, but really started to come around down the stretch. Ford finished the season averaging 7.4 points per game. The Ladyjacks will face another tough slate in 2009-10, which will include contests against the Big 10, Big 12, Conference USA and Western Athletic Conference. SFA opens the season Nov. 14 against North Texas in Nacogdoches, before Rice comes to town the following week. SFA non-conference schedule will consist of dates against Michigan, Texas A&M, Tulane, Louisiana Tech and Tulsa before they open a tough Southland Conference slate against Sam Houston State Saturday, Jan. 9.

LEE ANN RILEY Head Coach Baylor, 1985

Record at SFA: 131-105, Ninth Season Overall: 262-163, 15th Season Lee Ann Riley returns for her ninth season on the Ladyjack sidelines. During Riley’s tenure, fans have been privy to more than 100 victories, three 20-win seasons, two NCAA Championship appearances, a WNIT appearance. Riley has also claimed two Southland regular-season and tournament titles and led SFA to its 800th win. One of six programs in the NCAA. SFA has been a major player since joining the Southland. The Ladyjacks have won 14 of 22 regular season titles and 15 league tournament titles, and also made a return appearance to the NCAA tournament, as a No. 13 seed. It marked the 18th time in program history that SFA advanced to the postseason tournament. In Riley’s eight seasons, 20 Ladyjacks have been recognized by the conference for their success on the court, including five first-team selections. Former player LaToya Mills became the first Ladyjack to earn allconference honors all four seasons. Riley has also coached a league player, defensive and freshman of the year. Riley began her coaching career as a graduate assistant at the school she would eventually lead to the 2000 NJCAA crown. She helped lead TJC to a 28-6 (.823) record during the 1990-91 season.

UT ARLINGTON After finishing the 2008-09 season with a 22-11 overall record, a Southland Conference title and a WNIT appearance, the Mavericks expectations are high heading into the new year. The Mavs return five from the previous season in seniors Kiarra Shofner, Meghan Nelson and LaTosha Duffey and juniors Tamara Simmons and Shalyn Martin. Nelson, Simmons and Martin finished the season averaging in double-figures and collected post-season honors for UTA. The trio will be a key factor in the Mavericks success this season due to the graduation of Southland Conference leading scorer and rebounder Candice Champion and the league’s second leading rebounder Erin Dixon. Together, Champion and Dixon combined for 972 of the Mavericks 2,408 points and 656 of 941 total rebounds. Of the three seniors, Nelson saw the most playing time appearing in all 33 games while making 24 starts in the rotation. She led the team in steals with 45, finished the season averaging 10.4 points per game, and earned Honorable Mention All-Southland Conference post-season honors. Simmons finished third on the team in scoring behind Champion and Dixon with 11.5 points and led the team in assists with 124. Martin returns as the Mavericks top defensive player, leading the team with 40 blocked shots and finishing third in rebounding with 5.5 per game. Compared to last season where UTA had a total of eight players on the roster, this season will be different as five newcomers and two redshirts have been added to the squad. Redshirts Ryan Green and Veronica Mergerson sat out last season and both should provide depth to the forward position. The newcomer’s lineup consists of three guards and two forwards. Guard LaNell Taylor leads the pack with the most experience coming from Seward Junior College where she finished her final season appearing in all 34 games and averaged 9.3 points per game. Sabreena DeNure and Kiara Parker come from well known high school basketball programs and complete the guard position. A native of Houston, Texas, Donna Dike is one of five forwards that look’s to fill the void of former seniors Champion and Dixon. Dike was a first team all-district honoree and finished her final season averaging 15 points and 15 rebounds per game at Westside High School. Grapevine High School product, Erica Paskell joins Dike at the forward position. Paskell earned first team all-district honors and was named the mustang’s most valuable player as a junior.

UTSA Head coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair couldn’t have written a better script during the 200809 season, as her team repeated as Southland Conference Tournament Champions and made a return trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Roadrunners also added a Southland Regular Season title and a school record 24 wins, which gave the Roadrunners their first back-to-back 20-win seasons in school history. Despite the losses of 2009 Southland Player of Year Monica Gibbs and all-league performers Onika Anderson and Ryba Pawlaczyk, the Roadrunners are eyeing a threepeat this coming season. Rippetoe-Blair has seven returning letterwinners led by seniors Valencia Cottom and Alysse Davis, junior Amber Gregg and sophomore Whitney York. Also coming back are sophomores Cori Cooper, Cierra Martin and Shantel Nwanguma. The Birds welcome seven newcomers in junior transfers Kelsey Ansley (New Mexico), Ashleigh Franklin (Conners State JC) and Kameisha Johnson (Conners State JC) and four freshmen — Corrie Forcier, Judy Jones, Jermini Malone and Whitney Wright. This year’s team features seven post players that stand 6-0 or taller. Cottom (6-0) and Davis (6-2) along with Cooper (6-1) and Nwanguma (6-0) will provide post presence after the departure of Anderson and Pawlaczyk. Meanwhile, Ansley (6-1), Forcier (6-5) and Wright (6-3) will add height and depth to the front court. Davis, who transferred from Memphis during the 2007-08 season, sat out the first half of the year and made her Roadrunners debut against Oakland on Dec. 19. The Corpus Christi native played in 26 games, while averaging 6.0 points per game. Her 41 threepointers and 20 blocks ranked third on the team. Returning for her final season is Cottom, who collected 23 points and 22 rebounds in 21 games played last year. The Gary, Ind., native set a career-high with six points twotimes most recent against Sam Houston State. She tied her career-best three times with four rebounds; most recent came against Sam Houston State. Cooper played in 14 games last season. The Copperas Cove native had a career night with 21 points and nine rebounds against Nicholls. Nwanguma participated in 11 games during her rookie campaign. The Katy native posted 16 rebounds and 15 points to go along with three blocks last year. Ansley will sit out the fall semester due to NCAA transfer rules. The Marble Falls native appeared in 24 games for the Lobos during the 2007-08 season. She averaged 14 points, 10 boards and five assists per game during her senior season at Marble Falls High School. She was an all-state performer and McDonald’s All-America nominee that same year. UTSA will look to Gregg and York to fill the void left by UTSA’s all-time assist and rebounding leader Gibbs. Rippetoe-Blair will rely heavily on the duo to lead a young backcourt during the 2009-10 season. Gregg posted career highs in points per game (11.7), 3-pointers (73) and 3-pointers attempts (211). The Austin native recorded 19 double-figure scoring games in 29 contests last year. Running the offense this season will be York, who missed most of last season due to injury. The Bryan native averaged 5.9 points per game and dished out 24 assists in eight games (seven starts). She brings experience to the position, as she started all 33 games during her freshman season.

RAE RIPPETOE-BLAIR Head Coach

Oklahoma State, 1985 Record at UTSA: 160-104, 11th Season Overall: 267-148, 15th Season Coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair, a threetime Southland coach of the year, has guided UTSA to two consecutive NCAA tournaments, Southland tournament titles, two Southland regular season titles, consecutive 20-win seasons and a schoolrecord 24 wins. She has established herself as the winningest and longest-tenured head coach in school history. Blair has mentored several outstanding student-athletes during her tenure at UTSA. Most recent is Southland player and defensive player of the year Monica Gibbs. She has coached four Southland newcomer of the year winners, two freshmen of the year recipients, 19 All-Southland selections, including seven first selections and two student-athletes of the Year. UTSA overcame a 2-6 start to begin the 2008-09 season, but finished the year strong capturing the Southland regular season and tournament titles and second straight trip to the NCAA tournamnet. Blair’s teams have been ranked among the best defensive teams in the country. UTSA was ranked in the top six nationally in scoring defense in 2002-03 and was second in the nation in her first two seasons (200001 and 2001-02). Prior to UTSA, Blair was an assistant coach at her alma mater, Oklahoma State, for eight seasons. As a player, Rippetoe left her mark to this day on the Cowgirls program, ranking in the top 20 in five categories.

TEXAS A&M-CORPUS CHRISTI The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women’s basketball team returns to the court for the 2009-10 season with high expectations and the personnel to reach them. The Islanders return all but one starter from last season’s Southland Conference Tournament team and also get the services of senior post player Elisa Beagle after missing last season with an injury. “Our kids know what to expect from this league now and how to perform at a high level to get things done,” said head coach Robert Robinson. “I’ll be relying on our seniors and upperclassmen quite a bit this year.” Beagle will provide an established presence in the middle as she was on the preseason All-Southland First Team a year ago before being lost for the season with a foot injury. Completely healed and looking to prove she is as strong as ever, Beagle provides strong leadership on a very experienced ball club. The 6-0 Beagle is joined by senior Diandra Torres (6-1), junior transfer Anitra Jeffery (6-0), senior LaToya Thomas (6-2), junior Myeisha Myles (6-2) and junior Adrienne Scott (6-1) to provide a great deal of height on the court for the Islanders. Speed with the aforementioned height will let the Islanders do some things that they have not been able to do in the past. “It will allow us to take advantage of some situations and press a little more with our length,” said Robinson. “I’m excited to see how we can utilize the speed we have both in the frontcourt and backcourt.” In all, A&M-Corpus Christi returns four starters and 10 players overall. Starters Shaye Montgomery, Jade Davis, Myles and Scott all return as well as Beagle, who was a starter from the previous year. Lauren Smith and Deziree Green each started at least 13 games last season as well. Reserves Louvinia Robinson, Thomas and Torres round out the roster for the Islanders. Davis led the Islanders in scoring with a 12.8 points per game average, followed by Montgomery with a 10.3 average and Myles with a 10.0 average. Montgomery led the team with a 3.45 assists per game average and Myles was the team leader with 8.3 rebounds per game. The Islanders bring four newcomers to the team as well, with three freshmen and a junior transfer rounding out the roster. Jeffery is a transfer from Angelina Junior College who is joined by true freshmen Ashley Darley, Imani Dunn and Jessica Jammer. Those players complete the group that Robinson expects big things from this year. “I’m excited about our depth this year,” said the coach. “We have a lot of kids we can run out on the floor and that will only help us.” Another factor in favor of the Islanders is the friendly schedule they play, including six home games before the start of the conference season. The home court advantage should be a boost to the team as they will get to enjoy the comforts of home and the support of the home crowd. “It’s a nice thing for our kids to be able to play at home in front of our fans and it is a good opportunity for our fans to be able to watch us play,” said Robinson. “The more games you can play at home can add to the excitement as well.”

ROBERT ROBINSON Head Coach

UT Arlington, 1993 Record at TAMUCC: 38-55, Fifth Season Overall: 38-55, Fifth Season After four seasons on the sidelines at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi — including two seasons as the associate head coach for former head coach Jodi Kest, Robert Robinson became the third head coach in Islander history in 2006. The third season of Robinson’s tenure was marked by the ability to overcome adversity and fight through any hardship thrown at his team. The Islanders finished 11-19 on the season and qualified for the Southland Conference tournament with a 6-10 conference record despite being devastated by injuries throughout the season. Robinson headed to the Islanders after serving a one-year stint as head girl’s coach at Hempstead High School. During the 200102 campaign, Robinson guided the Lady Cats to a District 25-3A co-championship title and a 20-8 overall record. Hempstead, which registered a 9-1 mark in district action, advanced to the state playoffs. Robinson began his coaching career in 1990, when he served as a men’s student assistant coach at UT Arlington for three years before heading to the western part of the state.

Elisa Beagle

Shaye Montgomery

In 1994, he moved to West Texas A&M and served as an assistant women’s basketball coach for two years. During his time in Canyon, the Lady Buffs captured back-toback Lone Star Conference titles (tied in 1995-96) and advanced to finals of the NCAA Division II South Central Regional.

TEXAS STATE The Texas State women’s basketball team begins its 13th season under the leadership of coach Suzanne Fox, returning a near-complete roster of letterwinners. The Bobcats will work with ten returners, including a preseason all-conference selection, and seven newcomers to take on a completely different persona for the 2009-10 season. A chance to be there in the end will be a complete turnaround from last year’s program. Fox and the 2008-09 Bobcats fell shy of making the Southland Conference postseason for the first time in seven years. The ability to lead the team past the setback will fall into the hands of veterans Victoria Davis and Aimee Hilburn. The pair of seniors are the lone two members of the team who have spent four-consecutive seasons under Fox, experiencing the highs and lows of Bobcat women’s basketball. Davis and Hilburn are joined by seniors Tamarra Evans-Sluga and Megan Homan. Sluga red-shirted last season due to a knee injury, but returns as one of Texas State’s top scorer’s During her initial season with the Bobcats in 2007-08, she averaged 5.4 points and shot 45-percent from three-point range. The four seniors need to remain in stride with last year’s senior class. Gone are leading scorer’s Kim Cessna and Ashley Cole, who averaged 10.8 and 9.5 points per game, respectively. Brittany Wilson and Ryann Bradford added depth and leadership to the team that will need to be restored. Each year team’s must rebuild and reload to prepare for the next season. Along with the 2009-10 senior class, Texas State returns a crop of six letterwinners that have a year of Southland competition under their belt and a year of chemistry to work with on the court. How quickly the combination of these things come together will be the key to Texas State success this season. Junior Chika Ofoegbu, a steadfast sixth-man last season, averaged 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds and returns for Texas State’s post game along with sophomore Lacey Klause. Four players that provided bench support last year along the perimeter and at the point guard position give the Bobcats added depth as well. Junior Mallory Williams and sophomores Bryonna Dawson, Verinus Kalu and Kelsey Krupa make up Texas State’s strength in the back court. Kalu and Krupa averaged around 10 minutes per game, seeing the most time of the incoming freshman last season. Kalu made eight starts, while Krupa was a vital reserve at the off-guard spot. As well-rounded as the returning Texas State roster looks on paper, Fox brings in seven newcomers with the 2009-10 recruiting class to highlight all positions on the court. Junior transfer Anna Brzozowski joins the Bobcat program and spending two seasons at Northern Oklahoma College – Enid. The post helped lead the Jets to a 27-4 record, averaging 7.0 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Stephanie Douthit, Alexa Hugee and Ashley Shoemaker join Brzozowski at forward. Douthit joins the program from Scottsdale, Arizona; Hugee spent her prep playing career in Huxley, Iowa, while Shoemaker spent her prep career in Houston, Texas.

SUZANNE FOX Head Coach

Abilene Christian, 1990 Record at TXST: 158-184, 13th Season Overall: 275-217, 18th Season Suzanne Fox enters her 13th season as head women’s basketball coach at Texas State University and 19th year overall on the bench. Under her direction, the Bobcats have made an NCAA Championship and WNIT appearance. Fox tops the Southland coaches with a 158-184 record, claiming not only the most wins by a current Southland coach, but the most wins in Texas State women’s basketball history. Last season, the Bobcats went 12-16 overall, claiming wins from top programs like Navy and Long Island. Fox’s final victory of the season, a 73-60 win over Stephen F. Austin, marked a milestone on her resume, achieving her 275th career coaching victory. Just two years ago, Fox made history with Texas State’s first 20-plus win season. The 21-11 overall record was solidified by a 14-2 league record that clinched the 200708 Southland title. The Bobcats advanced to the WNIT, a first in school history, and advanced to the second round. During her 12-year stint at Texas State, Fox has coached six All-Southland first-team members and 14 to the second and third teams. The Bobcats have claimed one freshman, newcomer, and one two-time player of the year in Talbert under Fox.
