MSU Women's Basketball has had success with the #4 lately. Last year our team was 4th in the nation with a NCAA DI cumulative team GPA of a 3.56. Academically our student athletes are exceptional and take great pride in the classroom. Earning that degree has been and always will be our first priority.

Our team is learning that we can be smart, have fun, and build a championship program all at once. After finishing the 2006-07 season as the 11th BEST TURNAROUND PROGRAM, the team worked to take another step this season.

The 2007-08 MSU squad produced five more wins, jumped up two more places in our conference, and made an exceptional run to the title game of our Big Sky Tournament. Not bad I suppose when three years ago I took over a program that was last place in the conference, and I could count our wins on one hand.

What does all of this have to do with the number FOUR you ask? Well, the community heard about the MSU Women's Basketball buzz and decided it was time to see what the hype was all about.

We finished the 2007-08 season #4 in biggest increase in attendance- IN THE NATION!

I want to send out a HUGE thanks to all of our supporters that came out for a fantastic finish. We averaged over 3,000 people this season in the Fieldhouse. My challenge for all of you in Bozeman is that next year we SELL OUT the FIELDHOUSE!!!

Oh, and did I also mention the player that wore #4 for us, Rebecca Mercer, broke the single season 3 pointers made with 78 this year? I thought I'd throw that in as well.
