WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL Facina tough opposition " Women ' s basketball faced major changes in the 2003- 2004 season. An entirely new coaching staff took over and hoped to lead the te am to victory. Cheryl Burnett, former head coach for Southwest Missouri State, was hired as the new head coach for the Wolverines. With drastic improvements needed from the previous season, Burnett came in prepared and ready to turn around the team. Complimenting Burnett was new Assistant Head Coach Karen Rapier. Rapier had worked with Burnett at Southwest Missouri State for the last eight seasons. The team started the season off strong, winning their first two games. Sophomore forward/guard Niki Reams explained, " [Winning] is a great feeling. It ' s awesome to see all the people here coming out and supporting us. We really appreciate it. " The women played their home games in Chrysler Arena, with a capacity of 14,000 fans. The Wolverine ' s first loss came against 15th ranked Rutgers, but the team rebounded in the next game with an impressive win against Western Michigan. The majority of the season went in this up and down fashion, with the Wolverines facing tough opponents and rigorous practices.

The team was able to celebrate after an amazing win against Big Ten rival Northwestern on January 4, 62-43. It was the first Big Ten win for Burnett, and the first for the team on the season. Seniors Stephanie Gandy and Jennifer Smith each scored over 20 points, and Niki Reams had a career best 5 steals in the game. It was the emotion of these wins, coupled with the love of the game, that kept the girls motivated for the long haul and gave the girls the ability to bounce back from tough losses to teams such as Penn State, Michigan State and Purdue. Junior forward Tabitha Pool commented, " [Having a successful team is] important because we come together as a team. We all want it and we ' ve all wanted it for a long time. " Despite this desire, the team had to settle for close to just a fifty-percent win average. Individual accomplishments of the season included senior Jennifer Smith being named Big Ten Play of the Week twice. In addition, senior Stephanie Gandy was named to the Preseason WNIT all-tournament team. The team once again hoped to use the season as a foundation for the following year. 174 Sports
