2017-18 Big South Women's Basketball Schedule

Big South Official Release

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Big South Conference announced the women's basketball league schedule on Friday morning, which opens on Jan. 2 and concludes March 3 for UNC Asheville.

The Bulldogs open their conference schedule with a road contest at Campbell, and four days later, Asheville will open its conference home schedule at Kimmel Arena versus High Point on Jan. 6.

En route to winning its second straight Big South Conference title, UNC Asheville will travel to Radford on Jan. 9 where the Bulldogs and Highlanders will reconnect after Asheville nipped the Highlanders 49-48 in the tournament championship a year ago to earn the Big South's automatic qualifier to the NCAA Tournament.

For the third time during the 2017-18 season, the Bulldogs will host back-to-back games on Jan. 13 and Jan. 16 versus Longwood and Liberty, respectively. Asheville swept the Lancers and Flames during the regular season last year and posted an average winning margin of 18 points in the four contests.

After hosting a pair of consecutive games, UNC Asheville will travel to Winthrop on Jan. 20 followed by a trip to Charleston Southern on Jan. 23.

The Bulldogs will return home on Jan. 27 versus Presbyterian where Asheville will look to avenge a five-point loss inside Kimmel Arena last season.

Following a trip to Boiling Springs, N.C., Asheville will play host to Winthrop and Radford on Feb. 3 and 6 in what will be its final back-to-back home games of the regular season. Last year in Kimmel Arena, the Bulldogs downed the Eagles 71-55 highlighted by out-scoring Winthrop 23-10 in the third quarter, and Asheville looks to avenge a loss to the Highlanders where Radford escaped with a 64-62 overtime victory in Asheville.

The Bulldogs will travel to High Point on Feb. 10, and three days later will host Charleston Southern on Feb. 13.

In the final five games of the regular season, three of those will be on the road (Liberty on Feb. 17, Longwood on Feb. 24 and Presbyterian on Feb. 27). Sandwiched in between the Flames and Lancers is a home game versus Campbell on Feb. 20, and like last season, the Bulldogs conclude the regular season with a match inside Kimmel Arena versus Gardner-Webb on March 3.

Looking to repeat for a third consecutive time, the Bulldogs will defend their Big South Conference Tournament title beginning on March 8 in Lynchburg, Va. The Big South Championship game is scheduled for March 11 inside the Vines Center.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – UNC Asheville women's basketball head coach Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick revealed the 2017-18 non-conference schedule on Friday which features an Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) opponent, conference champions, an Education Day and several regional opposition.

"I am extremely pleased with our non-conference schedule because it will present tough challenges as well as a few new regional opponents that our fanbase will be excited about playing," Kirkpatrick said.

The Bulldogs will begin their preseason with a home exhibition on Nov. 3 versus Mars Hill University. The exhibition is set to begin at 7 p.m. inside Kimmel Arena. Over a week later, UNC Asheville will start its regular season on the road on Nov. 12 at Western Carolina. The Bulldogs look to make it three straight victories over the Catamounts as Asheville won last year's matchup 62-53 and 67-45 two seasons ago in Cullowhee, N.C.

Two days later, UNC Asheville will travel to Raleigh, N.C. where it will square off against NC State. The Wolfpack went 23-8 last year including posting a 12-4 record in the ACC. NC State recorded wins over No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 6 Florida State, No. 9 Louisville and No. 12 Duke last season, and the Pack finished the 2016-17 season ranked 17th in the country, according to the Associated Press (AP). With the high national ranking, the NCAA awarded the Wolfpack an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament. They defeated Auburn 62-48 in the opening round before they were bounced out of the tournament by No. 14 Texas.

Following a tough opponent, Asheville will host its first home game of the season on Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. as the Bulldogs welcome Charlotte to Kimmel Arena. The 49ers went 21-10 last year while posting impressive wins over Wisconsin and Pittsburgh. The Bulldogs will hit the road for their third away game of the season as they travel to Davidson on Nov. 22, and five days later, UNC Asheville returns home to face Middle Tennessee State University on Nov. 26 at 2 p.m. MTSU finished second in Conference USA as the Blue Raiders went 23-11 overall and 15-3 in C-USA play.

To conclude the month of November, UNC Asheville will travel to Spartanburg, S.C. to face Wofford on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m.

Last season UNC Asheville set the program home attendance record (2,257 fans) on Education Day, and the Bulldogs have scheduled another Education Day promotion against Warren-Wilson on Dec. 4 at 11:30 a.m. Last year the Bulldogs downed the Owls at home 113-51 including posting 40 points in the third quarter.

"I am excited that we were able to plug another Education Day game in our non-conference slate because it was such an awesome experience last year for both teams and of course the community schools," Kirkpatrick said.

For the first time of the season, Asheville will host back-to-back home games as it will entertain Southern Conference Regular Season Champions Mercer on Dec. 10 at 1 p.m. The Bears finished the 2016-17 season at 25-7 overall and 12-2 in the SoCon, but they missed the automatic bid into NCAA Tournament as they fell 61-59 to Chattanooga in the SoCon Championship. However, Mercer was invited to participate in the WNIT where it fell to Alabama in the opening round.

UNC Asheville will play its final non-conference road game on Dec. 16 as the Bulldogs travel to Spartanburg, S.C. to battle USC Upstate at 2 p.m.

To conclude the non-conference schedule, Asheville will host back-to-back home games on Dec. 21 against Appalachian State and Dec. 28 versus Furman. Both games will tip at 7 p.m. inside Kimmel Arena.

"We designed our non-conference schedule to prepare our young ladies to compete in the Big South. We also wanted to have a tough regional schedule that gave our fans plenty of opportunities to watch our players in person. We have accomplished that with these eleven opponents," Kirkpatrick said.

2016-17 Big South Presidential Honor Roll

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The UNC Asheville athletics department placed 72.11 percent of its eligible 190 student-athletes to the prestigious annual Big South Presidential Honor Roll for the 2016-17 academic year.

"Sometimes I think what our student-athletes are doing in the classroom is lost in all of the great things they are doing athletically for our University," UNC Asheville Director of Athletics Janet R. Cone said. "Their efforts athletically are just a small part of the story as these numbers show. We truly have student-athletes here at UNC Asheville that value and champion pursing greatness with their academic, athletic and lifelong goals."

The 2016-17 athletic year overall for UNC Asheville saw the Bulldogs excel in not only their respective sports, but also in their efforts in the community, and particularly, the classroom.

The proof is in the numbers.

During the fall of 2016, 70 percent (156 of 223) of the UNC Asheville student-athletes earned a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher during the semester. In addition, 73 Bulldog student-athletes finished the fall semester with a GPA of 3.5 or higher with 17 Asheville student-athletes collecting a perfect 4.0 GPA.

The combined GPA for the athletics department at UNC Asheville during the fall 2016 semester was an impressive 3.198.

The 2017 spring semester finished with the 211 Bulldog student-athletes enrolled for the semester closing out the academic year with a combined 3.315 grade-point average for the spring semester.

In fact, 77 percent (163 of 211) of the UNC Asheville student-athletes earned a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher during the 2017 spring semester to be placed on the Athletic Director's Honor Roll.

In addition, 76 UNC Asheville student-athletes concluded the spring semester with a GPA of 3.5 or higher to be placed on the Dean's List. A total of 21 Bulldog student-athletes claimed a spot on the Chancellor's List with a perfect 4.0 for the semester.

Overall for the 2016-17 athletic year, the combined GPA for UNC Asheville student-athletes was 3.247.

The core mission of UNC Asheville athletics is for its student-athletes to be not only champions in athletics, but also leaders in life, and a total of 42 Bulldog student-athletes (seven in December of 2016 and 35 in May of 2017) took complete advantage of their opportunity to thrive in their athletic and academic endeavors by officially graduating from the University during the 2016-17 athletic year.

UNC Asheville women's swimming competes in the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association and are not eligible for the Big South Conference Honor Roll, which is why the number of student-athletes is 190. Bulldog swimming is also extremely stout in the classroom though as the program garnered Scholar All-America Team honors from the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) for the 10th consecutive semester in late June.

In total, the Big South Conference placed 1,784 out of 2,986 student-athletes -- an all-time high of 59.75 percent -- on its prestigious annual Presidential Honor Roll for the 2016-17 academic year, it was announced Wednesday, Aug. 26, by Big South Conference Commissioner Kyle B. Kallander.

To be named to the Presidential Honor Roll, student-athletes must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or better for the recently-completed academic year. The 59.75 percentage marks the third consecutive year above 50 percent.

High Point University led all Big South institutions for the third straight year, as HPU had 77.83 percent of its 230 student-athletes on the Presidential Honor Roll -- one of seven members to have at least 60 percent on the list. UNC Asheville placed just behind as noted with 72.11 percent of its 190 student-athletes on the list, while Gardner-Webb University had 67.13 percent of its 356 student-athletes among the honorees. Also surpassing the 60 percent threshold was Winthrop University (66.42%), Radford University (65.95%), Campbell University (63.74%) and Presbyterian College (63.54%).

In addition, 135 student-athletes achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA in 2016-17, and each of the Big South's 19 sponsored sports had at least one 4.0 student.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Every year the NCAA invites institutions at all three levels to submit nominations for the annual NCAA Woman of the Year. This year, UNC Asheville has submitted two worthy nominations in 2017 graduates Sarah Heisner and Chatori Major.

This year, the NCAA received 544 nominations, the most ever in the history of the Woman of the Year program. 229 nominations came from the Division I ranks, 117 from Division II and 198 from Division III. The average grade-point average of all those nominated is 3.69.

To be considered for the NCAA Woman of the Year honor, a female student-athlete must be a well-rounded individual who embodies the four pillars of the award: academics, athletics, service and leadership. Both of UNC Asheville's nominations fit the bill perfectly.

"UNC Asheville is honored to nominate Sarah and Chatori for the NCAA Woman of the Year award," said Senior Administrator for University Enterprises and Director of Athletics Janet R. Cone. "Both have exemplified a balance of academic, service and athletic excellence throughout their careers and have proven that they are 'Champions in Athletics and Leaders in Life.'"

A three-sport athlete, Heisner graduated in May with a 3.863 GPA as a Literature major. She was a four-year member of the women's cross country as well as indoor and outdoor track and field teams at UNC Asheville and competed in six events her senior year in track: 800 meters, 1500m, mile, 3000m, 5000m and 10,000m. She ran in four indoor, six outdoor and six cross country meets. The 2015-16 Big South Conference Indoor Track and Field All-Academic Team selection finished second in the two mile at the 2016 WCU Fast Cat XC Invitational with a time of 11:35.1. She finished in the top-10 in two cross country 5k events: the UNC Asheville CC Invitational (3rd) and the Asheville Cross Country Challenge (6th). During the track and field seasons, she placed in the top-10 in five events including a fourth place finish in the 10,000m at the 2017 Beynon Sports Surface Catamount Classic.

Major, who graduated in May with a degree in Health and Wellness boasted a 3.648 GPA, played four seasons for the women's basketball program. She was named to the Big South's All-Academic Team at the beginning of March and is a two-time All-Big South Conference first-team selection as well as the 2015-16 Big South Conference Player of the Year. In 2016-17, Major led the Bulldogs to their second consecutive Big South Championship crown and NCAA Tournament berth. For the season, she averaged a team-best 13.8 points per game while shooting 36.6 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from three-point range. She became the 106th Big South Conference player and 16th UNC Asheville women's basketball player to eclipse the 1,000-point mark and ended her prolific career with 1,116 career points, the 12th-most by a Bulldog all-time and eighth-most in the NCAA Division I era. She also set the school single-season record for most made three-pointers in a season with 78.

The NCAA encourages member schools to honor their top graduating female student-athletes each year by submitting their names for consideration for the Woman of the Year award.

Next, conferences will select up to two conference nominees each from the pool of school nominees. The Woman of the Year selection committee, made up of representatives from the NCAA membership, will then choose the top 30 honorees - 10 from each division.

From the top 30, the selection committee determines the top three honorees from each division and announces the nine finalists in September. The NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics then chooses the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year from those nine.

The top 30 honorees will be recognized and the 2017 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced at the annual award ceremony Oct. 22 in Indianapolis.

These awards are given each year to teams with APRs in the top 10 percent in each sport and the results are based on the 2015-16 academic year.
