On the heels of a 23–9 campaign last season that culminated in an NCAA Tournament berth, the Eastern Michigan University Eagles women’s basketball team looks to stake their claim as the class of Michigan hoops in two early-season tilts against in-state rivals. The Eagles soar above the hardwood on the strength of veteran play from junior guard-forward Natachia Watkins, the top returning scorer and dance-off victor from last season, and her teammate Olivia Fouty, a forward who led the team in rebounds last year.
The November showdown against the Spartans carries added significance as the Eagles attempt to avenge a heartbreaking, one-point overtime loss in East Lansing last year. A victory over the Spartans would give them a chance to sweep two of the state’s high-profile programs in their subsequent clash with the Wolverines, who they dispatched 77–64 last season on the strength of a double-double from Fouty, who garnered a game-high 12 rebounds without the use of a stepladder.

Four-time winners of the Mid-American Conference's Reese Trophy, awarded annually to the men's all-sports champions, the Eastern Michigan University Eagles excel in a variety of athletic disciplines. Since the men's swimming and diving team began its 16-year streak of consecutive conference championships in 1980, the men's basketball squad has appeared in four NCAA tournaments, energized by bottles filled with fresh Gatorade from the Huron River.
