Lindsay Shade begins her fourth season at Ball State University with head coach Kelly Packard.  Shade in her first season helped the Cardinals to its third straight Mid-American Conference West Division title, its first MAC Tournament championship and its first NCAA Tournament berth.  The Cardinals stunned the women's basketball world when Ball State earned a first round win in the NCAA tournament against two time defending national champions, the University of Tennessee, 71-55.  With the win Ball State managed to extend its win streak to 12 straight victories which was the longest win streak in program history. The 2008-2009 Cardinals finished with the MAC's highest RPI (45) and SOS (strength of schedule) ranking (91). 

"Lindsay has an extremely mature mind for the technical aspects of the game," said Packard.  "Her experience on the staff at Pitt alongside well-respected head coach Agnus Beranto developed her coaching understanding at an accelerated pace.  Those skills were further complemented during her coaching experience at Holy Cross.  Lindsay will work with our post player skill development, offensive special situations, and zone defense."


Shade spent from 2006-08 at the College of the Holy Cross as an assistant coach.  She helped lead Holy Cross to two consecutive Patriot League Tournament championship game appearances. Shade coached the 2007-08 Patriot League Player of the Year and two First Team Patriot League selections along with players who received second team and rookie honors. 



Prior to Holy Cross, Shade spent 2004-06 at the University of Pittsburgh as a graduate assistant.  She was in charge of creating recruiting mail-outs, giving campus tours for potential recruits, and the video coordinator.  She also operated film exchange and assisted with camps.

In 2004, Shade played on the summer tour of Athletes in Action that traveled to Poland.  She performed basketball clinics for children and ministered daily devotionals with the Polish National Team.

From 2002-04 Shade volunteered for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Girls Sports Camp.  She was a huddle leader, facilitated spiritual discussions and taught basketball fundamentals to the campers.

Shade, who earned her bachelor's degree in economics from Davidson College in 2004, was a member of the women's basketball team. She led the Southern Conference in assist-to-turnover ratio as a junior and was second as a senior. 



In August Shade graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a master's degree in exercise physiology.
