PRESEASON IN THE BOOKS
The Huskies saw game action last week in an exhibition game at NCAA Division I University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Michigan Tech lost 87-49, but held their own against one of the top Division I teams in the country. Senior Brenna Heise led all scorers with 16 points followed by senior Kelli Guy with 15 points. The Huskies matched the Phoenix in offensive rebounding (8-8) and scored in double digits in three of the four quarters. The experience from Thursday's game should help Tech as they open the season Friday on the road against Davis & Elkins.

BACK COURT STRONG IN EXHIBITION
Even though stats from Thursday's exhibtion won't officially count in the box score, Heise's performance at UW-Green Bay was impressive none the less. She paced all scorers in the game with 16 points while grabbing a team high six rebounds to go along with a pair of blocked shots. Heise is a 2017 Preseason GLIAC All-Conference Team selection after being named All-GLIAC Second team following the 2017 campaign. She averaged 11.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game a year ago. Heise connected on four triples against UWGB and her ability to shoot outside as well as play in the post will make things very difficult on opposing defenses. Guy also had a solid performance against the Phoenix, firing in 15 points while contributing two rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Senior Lindsay Winter, who finished the 2016-17 strong by being named to the GLIAC All-Tournament Team, chipped in five points and paced the Huskies with four assists.

OFF THE BENCH
Everyone logged minutes at UW-Green Bay in prepartion for the regular season opener Friday against Davis & Elkins. Sophomore Baillie McGirk dropped in four points while freshman Cassidy Trotter tacked on four points, a steal, rebound, and an assist in her first collegiate competition. Senior Elisa Jurmu connected on a triple and sophomore Abbie Botz chipped in two points with a couple of rebounds. Senior Sarah LewAllen hauled down three rebounds, distributed two assists and had one steal. 

WBCA AND GLIAC PRESEASON POLLS
Michigan Tech is ranked 21st in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association NCAA Division II Preseason Top 25 Poll, announced Tuesday by the national office. The Huskies are one of two Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference teams who are in the preseason poll, with defending national champion Ashland University ranked number one. Michigan Tech is picked to finish first in the GLIAC North Division in the 2017 GLIAC Basketball Preseason Poll, announced last week by the conference office. The Huskies earned 58 points with four first place votes. Ashland was chosen to win the GLIAC South Division in 2017-18.

SCOUTING THE OPPOSITION
Michigan Tech will face a couple of Great Midwest Athletic Conference teams this weekend in Pepper Pike, Ohio. First up are the Senators from Davis & Elkins Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. The Senators were 19-10 overall last year and 7-7 against GMAC opponents. They advanced to the GMAC tournament semifinals where they fell to Ursuline 103-74. Sydney Turner is the top returning scorer from last year's team where she averaged 10.0 points and a team best 6.7 rebounds per game. Stephanie Wooten led Davis & Elkins in scoring last year at 22.2 points per game, but graduated following last year. Kali Wilburn is also back this year after averaging 9.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in 2016-17. As a team, the Senators scored 77.4 ppg while holding opponents to 68.6 points per per contest a year ago.

Ursuline is coming off a solid 2016-17 season that saw the team finish with an overall record of 23-8. The Arrows were the regular season GMAC Champions after posting a 13-1 mark against conference opponents last season. Ursuline fell in the GMAC Tournament Finals to Malone, but advanced as an at-large team to the NCAA Regional Tournament where they fell to Grand Valley State 73-66 in the first round. Laney Lewis is back after leading the Arrows with 16.1 points and 11.8 rebounds per game averages in 2016-17. Ursuline had five players average 10 or more points per game, but only Lewis returns for the 2017-18 campaign. As a team in 2016-17, the Arrows tossed in 80.1 points per game while holding opponents to 63.9 ppg.

COACH CAMERON
Kim Cameron begins her eighth season at Michigan Tech in 2017-18 and is the first Division II head coach in Tech history to lead a team to a national title game appearance (2011). Tech's historic run through the NCAA Tournament came just months after Cameron was appointed to the position on June 17, 2010. The 2011 and 2015 GLIAC and 2011 WBCA Midwest Region Coach of the Year has accumulated 158 wins in her first seven seasons on the job. Her winning percentage (.772) is the best of any coach in the program's history, a list that includes three Michigan Tech Sports Hall of Famers (Cheryl DePuydt, Kevin Borseth and Darla Olson).

NEXT UP
The Huskies will be back on the road next week for two more non-conference games. Tech heads to Minnesota State Moorhead Thursday at 8 p.m. before facing Minnesota Crookston at 7 p.m. Friday night. The Huskies' first home game is scheduled for Monday November 20th against Minnesota Duluth at 6 p.m. in the SDC Gymnasium.
