** Ferris State finished the 2004-05 season with an 11-17 overall record. FSU placed fourth in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) North Division with a 9-9 conference ledger and advanced to the league's postseason tournament for the sixth consecutive year. The Bulldogs also recorded their ninth-straight season with 10 or more victories.

** Junior guard Erin Miller (Niles), who was named a co-recipient of FSUís 2003-04 Most Valuable Player Award, returns after missing all but two games of the 2004-05 campaign due to injury. Miller reached double-figure scoring in 28 of her 31 contests in 2003-04 and ranked as the Bulldogs' second-leading scorer (17.0 ppg). The 5-7 Miller was the recipient of the GLIACís 2002-03 Freshman of the Year Award after being the teamís third-highest scorer (12.5 ppg) in her initial season. Miller, who garnered both Verizon Academic All-District IV Third Team and GLIAC All-Academic Team recognition as a sophomore, also attained GLIAC North Division Player of the Week accolades twice (Jan. 5 & Feb. 9) in 2003-04. She earned first-team WBCA All-Great Lakes Region and All-GLIAC North Division, second-team Daktronics All-Great Lakes Region honors along with being among 40 finalists for the NCAA Division II Kodak/WBCA All-America Team during the 2003-04 campaign.

** Eighth-year FSU head coach Tracey Bloodworth-Fisk presently ranks as the schoolís all-time winningest coach and is second among Ferrisí leaders in career coaching victories. Fisk has compiled a 117-78 (.600) record to date in seven seasons at Ferris State. She is one victory shy of matching Pat Dolanís (1977-89) school record total of 118 wins. Both of FSUís two all-time NCAA Division II National Tournament appearances have came under Bloodworth-Fisk.

** The Bulldogs have ranked among the nationís top academic programs six consecutive seasons, according to the Womenís Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Division II Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll list. FSU placed 14th overall in 2004-05 with a 3.432 grade point average. Ferris had the nationís highest gpa in 1999-00 and placed second in 2002-03.

** Junior guard Kristin Reinhart (East Lansing), who was named FSU's 2003-04 Rookie of the Year Award winner, received second-team All-GLIAC North Division kudos for the Bulldogs last season despite missing the final eight games due to injury. She netted 308 points in 20 outings last campaign. Reinhart also dished out a team-high 96 assists and tallied 36 steals along with 25 made three-point field goals en route to being named co-recipient of Ferris Stateís 2004-05 team Most Valuable Player Award.
