WEEK EIGHT IN REVIEW
Michigan Tech split a pair of Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference games this past week at No. 8 Ashland and Wayne State. The Huskies stayed with the Eagles for the first half, but Ashland turned the tide in their favor in the third quarter. Freshman Ellie Mackay and junior Hannah Hobson guided the Huskies' offense with 13 points apiece Thursday night. Each player knocked down 50 percent of their shots from the field and combined for seven successful three-point tries. Freshman Cassidy Trotter chipped in 10 points and nine assists to round out the double digit scorers for Tech while junior Abbie Botz added nine points and a team best four rebounds. On Saturday, the Huskies bounced back from the tough loss Thursday at Ashland, outscoring the Warriors 25-9 in the second quarter to establish momentum and take control of the game. Botz led a trio of Tech players who posted 10 or more points in Saturday's victory with 14. Botz also grabbed a team best eight rebounds, blocked a shot, and produced a steal. Mackay followed with 13 points and three assists while Hobson rounded out the double digit scorers with 10 points.

SUCCESS ON THE ROAD
The Huskies have spent a good amount of time on the road and they've seen some good success when playing outside the friendly confines of the SDC. Tech goes into week nine of the regular season with a record of 4-2 in true road games while recording a mark of 2-1 on neutral courts. Although it's not counted in the official results, the Huskies claimed a 66-61 exhibition victory at NCAA Division I Eastern Michigan back on November 1st. Tech embarks on a four game stretch at home beginning Thursday night against Ferris State.

COACH HOYT
Sam Hoyt was named as the ninth head coach of the Michigan Tech women's basketball program, Director of Athletics Suzanne Sanregret announced Tuesday (May 29). Hoyt returns to Tech from the University of Sioux Falls where she served as an assistant coach. Hoyt was a standout player for the Huskies, helping lead the program to the 2011 NCAA Division II National Championship game as well as garnering multiple individual awards, including All-American Honorable Mention honors. Hoyt brings a wealth of coaching experience to Tech from both the NCAA Division I and II levels. In Hoyt's most recent stop at the University of Sioux Falls, she was involved in all facets of the program. She played an integral role in player development, served as the recruiting coordinator, created scouting reports, ran summer camps, and had responsibilities for film breakdown. Hoyt is Michigan Tech's seventh all-time leading scorer, amassing 1,434 career points during her four-year career which spanned 124 games. Hoyt owns the second highest career free throw percentage in program history at 84.8 percent and is tied for the second highest single season free throw percentage at 89.5 percent.
