Do you think they will end up with a D3 game? I would not be surprised.



i consider it to be a reasonably likely possibility. remembering how tough it was to get home games in '06-'07. we only got three ooc home games that year, one a mandated bracket buster return game from UNI and another, WFU as a big favor from Skip Prosser to help us out.

i really hope we can get some more decent D1 home games, the team deserves it and this is a year to try and pull more fans in.

Yes, and the only reason it wasn't as bad in 2005-06 was that there were a lot of return games already locked up. That year they had five OOC home games, but I think all of the D1 matchups were returns - Villanova (Thanks, Jay Wright), Yale, Cornell, and St. Joes. The fifth game - scheduled when they couldn't get anything else - was Haverford.

One more game on the women's schedule - at Iona on Sunday December 3rd. Here is what is known thus far:


11/10 @ Rider
11/18 @ Drexel
11/21 St. Bonaventure
11/24 @ Youngstown State
12/3 @ Iona
12/17 @ Fordham


Possible return games from last year are St. Joes and Akron, both of which presumably would be at Sojka.






Add Akron in Sojka November 12th.

Very tough start to the PL schedule:

1. Navy - last year's finalist, who figures to be a top four team this year.

2. At Army - returns everyone; should be the preseason #1

3. American - returns most of last year's 4th place team; figures to be in top four this year.

Correction on the above. The first three are American (A), Boston (A), and Army (H). Boston tied for 4th last year and should be good again this year. Either way, the first three are against three first division teams.

Assistant coach Carissa Thielbar resigned a few weeks ago. I presume she is moving back to her home area of the Upper Midwest. Her husband is a former MLB pitcher who has been pitching for St. Paul in the independent league.






Thielbar went a little further west than I expected. She is now an assistant at Colorado State in the MWC. Colorado State has won the MWC the last four years, while going 63-9 in league play.

The Bison named her replacement the other day, and it is someone with a much more extensive resume than would have been expected. The new coach is Jeanine Radice, who was the top assistant at Delaware for the past 21 years. Prior to that, she was an assistant at Seton Hall and Marist. She lost her job when Delaware's long-time head coach retired.

Radice graduated from Fordham in 1989, having been league POY in 1989, ROY in 1985, and three times All-MAAC. She was also a cross country star and was inducted into Fordham's HOF in 1995. During her time at Fordham, she hit .475 on threes, scored over 2400 points, and led the team in assists three times.

Coach Roussell has now completed his staff for the coming year by adding Ryland Adkins as Manager of Basketball Ops. Adkins previously held the same position at Furman and, before that, was an intern to the Maryland MOBO following a four-year tenure as Maryland's student manager.

Adkins' father is currently an assistant coach with the Washington Wizards, and previously was an assistant for the Maryland women's program for five years. Prior to that, he was a HS coach and helped develop Kevin Durant, among others.
