In addition to her full involvement in day­to­day operations, Jessee specializes in recruiting and guard development. No stranger to the Sunshine State Conference, Jessee has spent a total of five years in the SSC as both a player and head coach. Last season, Jessee led Lynn University to a 16­12 record after successfully guiding the Fighting Knights to a 16­12 record and its first ever NCAA Women’s Basketball Coaches Association national poll recognition in 2007­08. With an overall record of 32­24 at the helm of the Fighting Knights, Jessee was the first Lynn coach in 13 years to post consecutive winning seasons.

Jessee joined the Fighting Knights after three successful years at Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, Tenn., where she went 38­57. In her final year, her team opened the season with its best start in school history (13­2) and later established program records for wins in a season, highest national ranking (No. 27) and wins over top 25 teams (3 upset wins) while also picking up their first conference tournament win and advancing to the semi­ finals for the first time.

2009-10 University of Tampa Women’s Basketball

2009-10 Outlook Coming off of the best year in program history, The University of Tampa women’s basketball team enters the 2009­10 season with aspirations to continue its recent history of consistent success. Tampa will look to do so as the preseason favorites to win the Sunshine State Conference and ranked No. 17 in the Division II Bulletin Preseason Top 25. Last season UT captured both the regular season and tournament titles in the SSC en route to winning a program­best 26 games, but the season ended disappointingly with a second­round exit in the NCAA tournament to Ouachita Baptist. Tampa will attempt to chan­ nel that frustration into inspiration for a better finish this year. Tampa’s eighth­year head coach Tom Jessee is excited about endeavoring for greater accomplishments with this veteran­laden squad. “We would like to host and win the regional,” says Jessee of this year’s primary goal. “We hung that on the team right at the begin­ ning of the year. We don’t want to look back and compare one year to another, but we do want to continue and build upon the tradition set by the previous teams.” Achieving that goal could be made easier by the fact that Tampa returns four starters from last year’s squad, and the Spartans only graduated three seniors. Angela Guiu and Catriana Messina will battle for the starting role at point guard. While one will receive the nod, the other will be expected to produce just as much off the bench. “That’s a healthy competition, and the great thing from a coach’s standpoint is that both will play,” Jessee says, adding that both bring different strengths to the floor.

Gianna Messina Guiu is returning for her fourth year as a Spartan and brings a sig­ nificant amount of starting experience into the upcoming year. The senior has played in 87 career games while starting in 66 of those contests. With a .388 mark from behind the 3­point line, the Longwood, Fla. native has established herself as a menace to oppo­ nents from long­range. Messina received valuable minutes off the bench last season and will be able to contribute if the junior is thrust into the starting role this year. While averaging nearly 15 minutes as a key reserve dur­ ing her sophomore campaign, the Tampa native compiled 62 assists, and Jessee is eager to see how her strong offseason improvements translate in game action. Gianna Messina will once again be looked to for strong production from her guard position. “We think she is certainly a player of the year type candidate in the league, and she has really grown into a leadership role with us,” states Jessee. The junior led the Spartans last season in virtually every offensive category while landing on the all­SSC first team along with being named the SSC Tournament Most Outstanding Player. The Tampa native and twin sister of Catriana is a significant threat from beyond the arc as she posted the program’s second­best clip by an individual in a season from 3­point land season with a 43.4 percent success rate. When Messina is in need of a breather, the Spartans can look to sophomore Sarah Wickham. A native of Naples, Fla., she brings a strong perimeter game to the floor. Wickham will be expected to fill in the offensive void left from the graduation of Hailee Sullivan who remains with the team as an assistant coach.

2009-10 University of Tampa Women’s Basketball Kamari Smith is a freshman that could potentially have an immedi­ ate impact as she has already shown a strong grasp of Jessee’s style of play in the preseason. Sophomore Laina Sylestine and incoming freshman Tristan Weiner will also push for minutes at guard. Caitlyn Mitryk returns as the starting small forward after finishing first on the squad in blocked shots with 53 last season. “She’s been one of the better defensive players in the conference, and we’ve asked her to step up and be more of an offensive player,” Jessee says. The senior saw action in all 32 of Tampa’s contests last season while starting 29 and averaging nearly 30 minutes per game. She finished with 96 assists, good for second­best on the squad. Mitryk also was third on the team in rebounding. The only newcomer to the starting five is junior college transfer Taja Green. She joins the Spartans after two years at Coffeyville Community College (Kan.). “Taja picks up things really well – student of the game, and she brings a lot of previous college experience,” Jessee comments. She was named to both the all­region and all­conference squads during her two seasons at CCC, leading her team with 6.3 rebounds per game while also averaging 9.7 points a contest. She will be expected to be a strong player for UT once she is comfortable in the Jessee system, something the head coach expects to happen quickly. Tiara Cook will make the transition from the four spot to the five position this year following the departure of Kym Taylor. “She could contend for player of the year as well. She is probably our most athletic player, and she’s a matchup problem for oppo­

The Holiday, Fla. native was an all­SSC selection last season and also earned a spot on the conference’s all­tournament squad. She aver­ aged 12.3 points per game and compiled 52 blocks. The senior needs 414 points this season to become the 15th member of UT’s 1,000 point club, a feat that would top off a strong career for Cook. Sophomore Brittany Brown and freshman Ali Corbett are also ver­ satile reserves that will challenge for minutes. “We’re trying to get some depth, and we think we’ve done that with developing our sophomore class and the other players we’ve brought in,” Jessee says. “To win in the regional, you have to have that depth. You can’t win three games in four days without a strong bench.” Tampa will also look to continue to pose problems to opponents defensively. Last season the Spartans finished in the top five nation­ ally in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense. “It’s sometimes tough to overcome problems on the offensive end on any given night, but defensively you’ve got no excuses. You should be able to play within the structure of your defense every night. We feel like that will continue to be our strength.” Tampa enters the season with heightened expectations. Behind the strength of a veteran starting lineup and an improved bench, Jessee hopes that the Spartans can meet those expectations and remain among the best in the Sunshine State Conference while earning a bid to make a significant run through the NCAA South Regional.

Retired Jerseys Only two jerseys have been retired in the history of University of Tampa women’s basketball. Both of the women have been inducted to the UT Athletic Hall of Fame. Linda Hadfield­Catanach, a 1984 graduate, was inducted in 1989 and 1978 grad Jackie Langley­Driscoll was recognized in the October 2004 class of inductees. Each had stellar careers for the Spartans and have received the ultimate recognition of having their jersey numbers retired by the school.

During the 1981­82 season, she record­ ed 203 rebounds which at the time was third on Tampa’s all­time list. Linda was named Division II First Team FSCAA All­State as a senior and also earned All­Conference and All­ Academic honors.

#10 Jackie Langley-Driscoll

Jackie Langley­Driscoll, 1974­78, was named MVP of the Spartans all four years with the team and was named the school’s top female athlete in both 1976 and 1977.

UT Athletic Hall of Fame

The University of Tampa Athletic Hall of Fame was established as a way to aid the athletic department, its players, and teams through sponsorship of banquets and improvement of dressing, training, practice, and playing facilities. The hopes were that the existence of the Hall would encourage and motivate exemplary contributors, players, and coaches to exceed prior accomplish­ ments. Several of the Hall members’ accomplishments since leaving the university include: four World Series rings, one World Series win­ ning manager, an Olympic Gold Medal, six Super Bowl rings by three different players, a number one NFL draft selection, 18 play­ ers drafted or started in the NFL, a three­time Wimbledon tennis player, two major college football All­Americans, one Heisman Trophy nominee, a PGA Rookie of the Year, one NBA veteran and two alumni coaches who have guided UT teams to national cham­ pionships. Four former Spartan head football coaches have been voted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame. The University of Tampa Hall of Fame, which began in 1962, now includes 156 members. ’36 ’62 ’55 ’52 ’47 ’51 ’51 ’64 ’62 ’55 ’39 ’65 ’49 ’55 ’36 ’50 ’65 ’66 ’52 ’59 ’37 ’66 ’41 ’67 ’55 ’52 ’36 ’67 ’59 ’68 ’47 ’58 ’68 ’36 ’55 ’69 ’36 ’51 ’60 ’70 ’56 ’41 ’65 ’71 ’62 ’54 ’62 ’68 ’48 ’56 ’72 ’73 ’69

UT’s Nickname & Colors

Information from Under the Minaret by Dr. James W. Couigton In the early years, The University of Tampa started as Tampa Junior College. In 1931, the school began varsity sports competition. A committee sought to name the school teams. Since St. Petersburg Junior College, nicknamed the Trojans, was intended to be the arch rival, the name Spartans was selected from the ancient Greek Trojans/Spartans war. When the school moved into the Tampa Bay Hotel in 1933, head football coach Nash Higgens chose the team colors. Due to the fact that most of his players came from Hillsborough High (red & black) and Plant High (black & gold), Coach Higgens combined the colors of those two schools making the University’s colors red, black and gold.

History of The University of Tampa When The University of Tampa began classes on October 5, 1931 as Tampa Junior College, there were 62 local stu­ dents, tuition was $120 per semester, and there was no building to call home. Almost two years later, on Aug. 2, 1933, UT found its permanent home in the old Tampa Bay Hotel and began its journey in earnest. It has been a journey of alternating success and hardship, as the University has adapted and reinvented itself to meet new challenges. Beginning with Frederic Spaulding, who almost single­handedly forged his dream of a local University, to the present day as UT enjoys the greatest economic and academic expansion in its history under its 10th president. Some would say it has been a bumpy ride, but all would agree it has been interesting. During that first year when, in the grips of the world­wide Depression, the University’s 700 surplus dollars were divided among the faculty as pay, and the University was accepting notes, insurance policies and deeds on homes in lieu of tuition. There were the war years, when military pilots were being trained in Tampa and GIs began returning from the war to go to school, and married couples and some faculty members lived in Plant Hall on the upper floors. There was a huge struggle for accreditation, which lasted for 20 years and was finally achieved in December 1951. There were the glory days of our powerhouse football team, which struck fear into the hearts of our athletic rivals. Pajama parties, sock hops, parades and second jobs were daily rituals. The creation of the University of South Florida created another challenge, as many believed it would swallow UT. President David Delo arrived to take the University in another direction, and began to expand the size of the cam­ pus, construct new buildings and build enrollment. In over 77 years, UT has educated and placed thousands of alumni in positions of leadership at all levels of society around the world. Today, its future is brighter than it has ever been, as it continues to expand in terms of academic excellence, prestige, resources and enrollment.
