The Cardinals Nest

-  Head Coach Brady Sallee is in his second season at the helm of the Ball State women’s basketball team, leading the Cardinals to a 21-22
overall record during his tenure.  He now owns a 157-131 career head coaching record, including his 136-109 mark in eight seasons at Eastern Illinois.

- Sallee helped Ball State post one of the most dramatic turnarounds in Mid-American Conference history a year ago as the Cardinals earned the No. 2 seed in the MAC Tournament with a 12-4 league mark.  Ball State improved eight games from its 4-12 MAC mark in 2011-12, which ties as the biggest MAC turnaround in the last 20 years. Sallee also became just the second coach in program history to start MAC play 8-1 in their first season.

- The Cardinals will face six teams in non-conference action which were postseason participants in 2012-13.  Louisville and Purdue both went to the NCAA Tournament last season, while Auburn, Western Kentucky and Wyoming played in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament and Detroit in the Women’s Basketball Invitational.

- Ball State was selected to finish second in the MAC West Division preseason poll.  This is the Cardinals highest ranking in the MAC preseason poll since the 2008-09 season, when Ball State was picked to finish first.

- Sunday’s game at IPFW will mark the fourth time in program history the two schools have met with the Cardinals winning all four of those meetings.  Ball State owns a 0-2 record over schools from the state of Indiana this year after suffering losses to Purdue (63-57) and Evansville (80-69).
