Lechlitner selects USI

The University of Southern Indiana women’s basketball team announces the signing of 5’8” senior guard Amanda Lechlitner (Mishawaka, Indiana) to a letter of intent for the 2002-03 season. Lechlitner is the first student athlete to sign with the women’s program this year.

Lechlitner, a senior and starting guard at Penn High School, averaged 6.5 ppg a year ago. PHS was 16-7 a year ago.

USI Head Coach Rick Stein, who led the Screaming Eagles to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight in just his second season at the helm last season, said, “Amanda is an athletic shooting guard that can play both ends of the floor. She brings an all around game with her shooting, passing, and defensive abilities. Amanda’s best basketball is ahead of her.”

The USI Eagles, an NCAA Division II program in Evansville, Indiana, is 2-1 so far this season, finishing second in the Division II Tip-Off Classic at Disney’s Wide World of Sports last weekend. The Eagles were ranked ninth nationally in the Division II Bulletin Top 25 and sixth in the WBCA/USA Today/ESPN Top 25.

USI was 28-4 overall in 2000-01, winning the Great Lakes Valley Conference regular season and post-season tournament, and capturing its second NCAA II Great Lakes Regional crown.
