Walking by a Ping-Pong table, gaming consoles and shelves of shining trophies filled with Spartans history, Sam Puryear’s office sits with the door wide open. Upon accepting the head coaching job at MSU in August, Puryear left Stanford, a Pac-10 team that just won the national championship.
The MSU women’s basketball team handed out its annual awards Sunday night. Junior center Allyssa DeHaan and sophomore forward Kalisha Keane were named co-Players of the Year. DeHaan had 150 blocks on the season, breaking her own Big Ten record of 145 set last season.
Freshman standout Aimee Neff has proven to be a vital piece of the MSU women’s golf team. Coming out and sending a message from her opening tee shot to the clubhouse, Neff fired a 69 in her first round as a Spartan on Sept. 8, 2007 at the Mary Fossum Invitational and has used that as motivation throughout the season.
