Happy New Year from the Women's Basketball Team!

As the new year approaches, we leave 2010 at a record of 8-6. We have had some great wins, some rough losses, injuries, and a lot of fun during the first half of our season. Like every team and just like life-we have had our ups and downs. We leave 2010 on a win against Goshen College in our own Holiday Classic- it was a great mark to add on the last few days of the year.

With 2011 coming in, we have some challenges. We still have 14 games before tournament. This is the time where games mean just a little bit more, conference time. We hope to win the conference so we are able to host the conference tournament come late February. We will continue to prepare ourselves for each and every game and have fun doing it. There isn't another group of girls I would want to bring in the new year with than my teammates and coaching staff. I am thankful for all obstacles and positive happenings that occured in 2010 and I surely hope they continue on.

Our first 2011 game will be on Wednesday, January 5th versus defending conference champ, Cardinal Stritch. It will be a tough game, but with the next few practices preparing us-we will be just fine and hope to get a win on our home floor! I hope to see EVERYONE who follows the blog at the game. Tipoff is at 5 pm and the men's game follows.


Until next time...

Happy Holidays from the Purdue University Calumet Women's Basketball Team!!!

Hey everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season! As the snow falls and it starts to look like Christmas, I hope you all stay warm and safe. There is nothing like driving in the holiday rush of traffic!

Currently we are 7-4 coming off a home victory against Viterbo yesterday. We put 40 minutes together and came out with a "W". It was a good win to take us into a tough match up @ St. Francis (Fort Wayne) on Wednesday. They are a tough team and they have had successful seasons leading up to this one. We'll take a bus 3 hours east and hopefully bring a win back to PUC before heading into a few days off for Christmas. What a gift that will be!

On that note, what IS the meaning of Christmas? Is it just receiving gifts, quality time with your family, giving, music, food, or the celebration of Christ? As Christmas morning approaches do you get excited more for the gifts or the time with your family? Some answer will vary and some will surprise you. What is your answer? Christmas is the holiday for giving and to me, the holiday for appreciating what you already have or have had in the past. Not everyone gets what they want and not everyone gets what they NEED during this season. Much like Thanksgiving, you should be VERY thankful for the blessings you have received day in and day out. Maybe share with someone who hasn't had that blessing? Just an idea to think about..

Once again, Happy Holidays and stay warm!!!!

Until next time..

Tis The Season

Hey everyone! As the holiday approaches-that means the first semester of school is finishing up! It's great to finally be able to say that. Four months of school, basketball, and work is tiring! A month break will be great and it'll enable us players to focus on just family, basketball, and work. For all of you followers, don't forget we DO play games over break. We have 5 games including a home tournament December 28th/29th. We would love to get the same turn out as the first tournament hosted!

To update you with the team we are currently 5-4. We lost a heartbreaker at Olivet last Tuesday by 6. We played solid basketball for 40 minutes, but just came up short. We were well prepared credit to Coach Megyesi going into the game. You can't win them all, right? Tomorrow we have a conference game where we travel towards my hometown-Holy Cross. It'll be another tough game just like every other. We hope to bring a win back to Purdue Calumet.

Well, for all you student followers I hope you finish strong on your finals-best of luck! Also, to our fans we hope to see you soon at our next home game-Decemeber 18th. It's been too long since our last home game! Bring your friends and come support your lady peregrines versus Viterbo. Tip-off is at 3pm!

Until Next Time..

And Then There Was 10

Hey everyone. Sorry for the delay on blogging. These past few weeks sure have been hectic with the semester ending. We have dropped 2 games in a row putting us a 5-3 so far this year. We have had many injuries and nagging pains that have set us back a little. We've had concussions, knee problems, shoulder problems, deep bruising, back problems, ETC! It is a rough season and come conference time we need ALL 10 players healthy and at their best.

Our next game is Tuesday at Olivet. They are always a great team with a 90 second sub rotation, playing 15 girls. They like to trap and press and shoot the 3. The speed of the game will be VERY uptempo. We have been preparing in practice this week to get us the much needed win on the road.

Sorry this is so short, but back to the grind. Due dates for projects, studying for finals, and doing online quizzes are calling.

Until next time...
