Abstract/ Summary

It would be an understatement to say the University of Maine is optimistic about the 1999-2000 women’s basketball season. The Black Bears are coming off one of their most successful seasons in the history of the program. They participated in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth straight season and defeated Stanford in the first round before suffering a tough loss to Old Dominion in the second round. UMaine returns all but two players from that team and the returning players make up almost 90 percent of the offensive production from last season. Add to that a talented incoming class that could make an immediate impact and UMaine is poised to continue its past conference success, reach its goals of cracking the top 25 and advancing further into the NCAA Tournament.

UMaine’s senior class will play a pivotal role in the team’s aspirations this season. Not only does this class provide the team with valuable experience and leadership, but Jamie Cassidy, Amy Vachon, Kristen McCormick and Katie Clark are some of the most talented players on the team, in the league and in the nation.
