#LEC30 Top Moment | Southern Maine Women’s Basketball 1997-2007

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The University of Southern Maine’s women’s basketball program has reached great heights during the 20-year span from 1977-1997. The program grew to national recognition with seven Little East Conference Championships and a NCAA Division III Final Four appearance in 1988. This success doesn’t compare to the success the USM women’s basketball program was about to achieve over the next decade under the leadership of head coach Gary Fifield.

A year after falling to Eastern Connecticut State in the 1996 Little East Championship, the Southern Maine Huskies came back to assert an unprecedented dominance on the Little East Conference and the rest of the NCAA Division III.

During the 11-year run from 1997 through 2007, the Huskies posted a 140-12 record against Little East opponents and finished with an overall 295-41 record during this span, winning 87.79% of their games. The Huskies also advanced to the NCAA Division III Final Four in 1998, 2005 and 2006. The Huskies hosted the 1998 Final Four at the Warren Hill Gymnasium and the back-to-back squads in 2005 and 2006 combined for a 63-5 record in the two years (31-3 in 2005; 32-2 in 2006).

A trio of Little East Conference Player of the Year players led the Huskies during the 11-year span. Joanna Brown was named LEC Player of the Year for three consecutive years from 1996-1998. Julie Plant led the Huskies from 1997-2000 and earned Player of the Year honors after winning the LEC Championship in 2000.

In her four years in the Huskies uniform, Ashley Marble led Southern Maine to an impressive 119-10 record, including a 67-1 mark within the conference circuit. The three-time Little East Player of the Year helped the Huskies capture four consecutive conference regular season and tournament championships to earn the automatic berth into the NCAA Division III tournament. Southern Maine reached the national semifinals twice during her career, finishing third in 2005 and as the national runner-up in 2006. She is the program's all-time leader in rebounding (1,157), while ranking second in points (1,981). Marble also owns the single-season record for points (693) and scoring average (23.1 points per game). She personified the definition of a student-athlete in 2007, when Marble received the prestigious ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American of the Year Award.

Over the 30 years of the Little East Conference, the Southern Maine Huskies have won a total of 20 Little East Conference Championships in 26 LEC title appearances under the guidance of Hall of Fame coach, Gary Fifield to become a one of the most successful Division III programs in the nation.

The historic competitive success the LEC has achieved throughout the 30 years, beginning as a basketball only conference in 1986 and expanding into today’s 19-Championship Sport Conference, will continue to make academic and athletic strides as the LEC continues to be the premier Division III conference of the New England region.

The Little East Conference was formed in 1986 when six public institutions gathered to create a single sport athletic conference and has expanded into what is now New England’s premier athletic conference for public institutions in NCAA Division III. The LEC features 19 Championship Sports and sponsors quality competition in every season for our student athletes while following the Division III mission of passion, responsibility, sportsmanship and citizenship. ...
