A LOOK BACK: 2008-09 BULLDOGS FALL TO CALIFORNIA IN NCAA TOURNAMENT Despite out-rebounding a much taller California team 38-36, Fresno State fell 70-47 to the Golden Bears in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. LaShay Fears tied her career high with 18 points and Marnique Arnold grabbed 11 rebounds for the 13th-seeded Bulldogs (24-9), whose five-game winning streak ended as they went out in the first round for the second consecutive year. The Bulldogs, who led the nation in three-pointers per game (9.5), connected on just 4-of-18 (22 percent) from downtown and 18-of-56 (32 percent) from the field on the game. LA TECH DEFEATS SMU, FALLS TO ILLINOIS STATE IN WNIT Adrienne Johnson scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Louisiana Tech to a 77-54 win over SMU in the first round of the WNIT. Shanavia Dowdell added 19 points and 13 rebounds and became the 38th Lady Techster ever to score 1,000 career points when she hit a lay-up at the 12:22 mark of the first half. Whitney Jones scored 11 points despite playing only 16 minutes due to foul trouble. Tech shot 41 percent from the field while holding the Mustangs to only 32 percent. The Lady Techsters also out-rebounded SMU 52-46. In the second round, Louisiana Tech fell 73-59 at Illinois State. The Redbirds jumped out to a 17-2 lead to start the game before the Lady Techsters fought back to tie the game at the half. A Brietta Thomas three-pointer at the 15:34 mark gave the Lady Techsters their first and only lead of the night (35-34), but the Redbirds used a 14-5 run to secure the win. Jones led Tech with 21 points. Louisiana Tech shot 35 percent (23-of-65) from the field, including 7-of-25 from three-point range, while the Redbirds hit 44 percent (26-of-59) of their field goals. Illinois State out-rebounded Louisiana Tech 42-36. FRESNO STATE CLAIMS WAC TOURNAMENT TITLE Top-seeded Fresno State claimed the WAC Tournament title after a 56-49 win over third-seeded Nevada in the title game. Tournament MVP Jaleesa Ross led the Bulldogs with 22 points and nine rebounds in the championship game en route to being named tournament MVP, becoming the only player in WAC history to earn the award in back-toback years. With the win, Fresno State tied the school record for wins.

Nevada’s Dellena Criner earned the WAC’s Defensive Player of the Year honor for the second year in a row. Criner averaged 2.25 steals per game in WAC play. She was also named first team all-WAC and to the all-Defensive team. Idaho’s Derisa Taleni was the WAC Newcomer of the Year, becoming the second Idaho player to receive the honor. In WAC play, Taleni ranked third in the conference in scoring with 15.1 points per game, tied for sixth in steals (1.8) and 11th in rebounding (5.8). CRINER, DOWDELL REGIONAL FINALISTS FOR ALL-AMERICA TEAM Nevada’s Dellena Criner and Louisiana Tech’s Shanavia Dowdell were two of 52 players named as regional finalists for the 2009 State Farm Coaches’ All-America Team. Criner and Dowdell earned spots on the All-Region 7 team, joining San Diego State guard Jene Morris and Utah guard Morgan Warburton. FRESNO STATE SETS WAC THREE-POINT RECORDS Fresno State set the WAC single-season records for three-point field goals made (309) and attempted (893) this season. The previous records of 290 and 795, respectively, were held by the 1998-99 Colorado State team. What’s more, the 893 attempted is the NCAA record, surpassing the 858 of the 2008 Villanova team, while the 309 made rank second all-time in NCAA history. ROSS SETS FRESNO STATE SEASON THREE-POINTERS RECORD Fresno State sophomore Jaleesa Ross set the Fresno State singleseason three-point record at the WAC Tournament. Ross captured the record when she hit the first of four treys at the 13:13 mark of the first half in the championship game against Nevada. The guard had tied the record the day before against Utah State. Ross finished the season with 95 three-pointers for an average of 2.9 per game, good for seventh nationally. DOWDELL JOINS 1,000-POINT CLUB Shanavia Dowdell became the 38th Lady Techster ever to score 1,000 career points when she hit a lay-up at the 12:22 mark of the first half against SMU in the first round of the WNIT. The junior has 1,024 points in her three seasons. FRESNO STATE, LOUISIANA TECH SHARE REGULAR-SEASON TITLE With identical 12-4 conference records, Fresno State and Louisiana Tech shared the WAC regular-season title. It was Tech’s seventh regularseason title in eight years in the conference and Fresno State’s second in a row. The Bulldogs earned the top seed in the WAC Tournament by virtue of a better record against Nevada, the No. 3 seed. WEATHERSPOON NEARLY PERFECT When Teresa Weatherspoon took over head coaching duties at Louisiana Tech on Feb. 10, the Techsters were in fifth place in the WAC standings with a 5-4 mark. In the six weeks that followed, Weatherspoon led Louisiana Tech to a 9-2 mark, a share of the WAC regular-season title and to the second round of the WNIT. FRESNO STATE, LOUISIANA TECH REACH 20-WIN MARK Both Fresno State and Louisiana Tech, the two teams in the WAC that qualified for the NCAA Tournament and WNIT, posted 20-win seasons. It was the fifth time the Bulldogs had done so since joining the WAC – 2009 (24), 2008 (22), 2006 (24), 2005 (20) and 2003 (21). Louisiana Tech has reached 20 wins 29 times overall and six times – 2009 (21), 2006 (26), 2005 (20), 2004 (29), 2003 (31) and 2002 (25) – since becoming a member of the WAC. 2009-10 WAC Women’s Basketball Preview


A LOOK BACK: 2008-09 OLORUNNIFE SETS IDAHO SEASON REBOUNDING RECORD Yinka Olorunnife broke the Vandal single-season rebounding record of 277, set by Denise Brose in 1980-81. The only player in the WAC to average a double-double, Olorunnife finished the season with 311 rebounds, becoming the first Vandal and just the 10th WAC player ever to record 300 or more rebounds in a season. Her single season total ranks tied for sixth place all-time in the WAC. BULLDOGS LEAD NATION IN THREE-POINT FIELD GOAL AVERAGE In final NCAA statistics, Fresno State led the nation in three-point field goals per game, with an average of 9.4 per game. The Bulldogs had 10 or more treys in 19 of 33 games this season, including a WAC record 16 vs. UC Santa Barbara on Nov. 20. IDAHO CELEBRATES SEVERAL FIRSTS The Vandals’ 10 WAC wins were the most since joining the conference in 2005. Entering this season, Idaho had 11 WAC wins in its first three seasons combined. Idaho swept four WAC opponents. In three previous seasons in the WAC, Idaho had a total of three season sweeps. The Vandals also improved by nine wins, seven of which came in conference games. In addition, Idaho’s 64-41 win over San Jose State featured the Vandals’ best-ever winning margin in a WAC game (23) and the lowest point total allowed to a WAC opponent (41). ROSS CLIMBING FRESNO STATE THREE-POINTERS LIST Fresno State sophomore Jaleesa Ross has 184 three-pointers in her short career, good for fourth place all-time at Fresno State and four away from third place (188). At her current pace, Ross will easily break the Fresno State record of 272. UTAH STATE’S PEBLEY BECOMES ALL-TIME WINNINGEST COACH With the win over New Mexico State Feb. 26, Utah State head coach Raegan Pebley became the all-time winningest coach in Aggie women’s basketball history with 57 wins. In her sixth year at the helm, Pebley passed Fern Gardner for the most wins in Aggie history. A 1993 inductee into the Utah State Hall of Fame, Gardner played and coached basketball, softball and volleyball at Utah State. CRINER BECOMES NEVADA’S STEALS LEADER Dellena Criner became Nevada’s all-time steals leader in the team’s win over Utah State Jan. 14. She took sole possession of the record when she stole the ball from Utah State’s Danyelle Snelgro at the 14:27 mark of the second half. Criner closed out her career with 271 steals, good for eighth in the WAC record books. She also ranked third all-time in the WAC record books in career free throws made. The senior had 551 made free throws on her career. SNELGRO BECOMES USU’S STEALS LEADER Danyelle Snelgro made Utah State history in the first half of the Aggies’ loss to Louisiana Tech on Jan. 10 with her 176th steal, passing Margaret Johns (1980-83) for the top spot in the Utah State career record books. She closed out her career with 216. WHITE EIGHTH IN FREE THROW PERCENTAGE San Jose State senior Natalie White wrapped up her career with a free throw percentage of .820 (191-of-233), which ranks eighth all-time in the WAC. Julie Krommenhoek, who played at Utah from 1994-98, holds the record with a .851 clip (313-of-368).

l Guard Danisha Corbett’s 58 three-pointers in 2008-09 were the 10th most in a single-season in program history.

The Aggies led the WAC in free throw percentage last year, shooting 70.4 percent at the line. It marked just the sixth time in program history that the Aggies shot above 70 percent at the charity strip for an entire season.

l Head coach Darin Spence needs five more victories to become the second winningest coach in school history. He is six wins away from 400 in his career. l Crystal Boyd, a transfer from Texas who sat out last season due to NCAA transfer regulations, has one year of eligibility available for the 2009-10 season and she will be a key contributor for the Aggies.
