    Welcome to todays game at Hyland Arena

    Lindenwood University is celebrating 184 years of educating young people. This new academic term began with nearly 4,000 students living on the this beautiful 500-acre campus. We are continuing to construct modern facilities and hire the very best faculty members to provide a college education of the highest quality.

    Many examples of our expansion are near the Hyland Arena. Just to the south of the Hyland Arena, the 119,000 square-foot Evans Commons student center is open for business. To the north of the arena is our new School of Business and Entrepreneurship, housed in Harmon Hall, which was recently doubled in size. And just outside of Hunter Stadium, we

    are constructing a 43,000 square foot Student-Athlete Center that will house an academic success center, new locker rooms, athletic training facilities, a Champions Room, and

    coaches offi ces. Completion of that building is expected in late 2012. Lindenwoods athletics facilities are fi rst-class and ensure a competitive training and recruiting

    environment.

    Lindenwoods doctoral program in education is thriving, and additional doctoral programs are under consideration. We are busy planning a new apartment-style student

    residential facility, and other wonderful changes are on the horizon. We are proudly transitioning 26 sports into the NCAA Division II, many of which will be joining in Fall 2012 the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA), the fi nest Division II athletics conference in the country.

    Please take the time to drive around campus. Our pursuit of fi rst-class performance is evident in everything we do. Lindenwoods vibrant mission, beautiful campus and other

    outstanding characteristics make it one of the regions leaders in higher education.

    Sincerely,

    James D. Evans, Ph.D.President

The program also fi nished in second place in the HAAC Conference. Lindenwood put together two six game winning streaks during the season. The Lions compiled

    a home record of 12-4 and conference mark of 15-5. Under Francis guidance, the team placed in the top fi ve in numerous school records. Three Lady Lions were named to the All-HAAC squad and Morgan Harrington was named to the NAIA All-American team. Coach Francis was also named the Conference Coach of the Year.

    Before accepting the head coaching posistion at Lindenwood, Francis spent eight seasons as an assistant coach at NCAA Division I, St. Louis. At Saint Louis, Francis was the recruiting coordinator and he helped the Billikens land some of the top talent in the St. Louis area and beyond. He was also in charge of developing the teams post players. The past couple of seasons, he was a mentor to center Amanda Kemezys, who earned Atlantic 10 all-conference honors the past two seasons. He also signed Theresa Lisch, who was a fi rst-team all-conference and Academic All-American at Saint Louis.

    Melanie Schmit is entering her second season as an assistant coach for the womens basketball team.
