TriCounty Bradley’s first berth in a women’s postseason basketball tournament was a long time coming.
The program got its start in 1975-76. Under Paula Buscher, the seventh head coach in BU women’s basketball history, the Braves finally reached the postseason last March when they appeared in the inaugural Women’s Basketball Invitational.
Bradley won at 2009 NCAA runner-up Louisville in the first round, then lost at the College of Charleston in the quarterfinals to finish 17-14 overall.
The Braves made their case for a postseason berth with a third-place tie in the Missouri Valley. The conference finish was the highest in Buscher’s first 10 seasons at BU.

One of the biggest golf names to ever play out of Central Illinois, Ruth More Enger, a former Pekin resident, was perhaps the state's most skilled woman golfer in the mid 1940's and early 1950's. Since winning her first club title in 1935, she has participated in local golf activities in each of the many communities in which she has lived.
