Women's basketball tips off season against Purdue


The women’s basketball team huddles together before a game against Eastern Michigan on March 4 in McGuirk Arena. 

With 299 total career wins, Central Michigan women’s basketball head coach Sue Guevara is just one win short of a huge milestone entering her 11th year at the helm.

Her first shot at 300 will come Friday Nov. 10 at 7:30 in McGuirk Arena against Purdue, a team which just a season ago, was playing in the NCAA tournament.

CMU is coming off a successful season of their own, winning the regular season Mid-American Conference championship with a record of 23-9 overall and 15-3 in the conference.

The matchup against Purdue is the first in a two-game home stretch against power five conference teams for the Chippewas. In addition to Big Ten foe Purdue, CMU also faces Southeastern conference opponent Vanderbilt on Tuesday Nov. 14.

In the 2016-17 season, Purdue led the Big Ten in scoring defense, limiting to just under 60 points a game holding them to 38 percent from the field. The Boilermakers finished last season fifth in the Big Ten and earned a NCAA tournament birth before bowing out in the round of 32.
