Given to Fly: ISU women's hoops team slides onto commercial radio

TERRE HAUTE — Coach Jim Wiedie expects the Indiana State women’s basketball team to have a bit of a retro feel this season, meaning the Sycamores have the potential to get back to creating havoc with their full-court press.

As Melanie Boeglin and Lisa Verhoff arrived as freshmen guards in 2002-03 to help the squad force an average of 24 turnovers per game, ISU student Brent Holl had become the regular color commentator for the Sycamores on WISU-FM 89.7.

Holl has been hooked since, and he’ll be making his return to a regular job with the program this season as ISU’s play-by-play man on WSDM-FM 92.7.

Holl, who spent nearly two years as station manager for ESPN Radio from 2006 to 2008, recently began working as an account manager for Gibson Teledata in Terre Haute.

“It’s a credit to what coach Wiedie has done to get this program on a commercial station. I think it’s huge, and I’m very excited about it,” said Hull, who will also host a coach’s show at the 7th and Elm Bar and Grill on Thursdays.

Holl’s excitement for the program grew during the team’s school-record winning 2005-06 season, and his knowledge of the program and the conference will be a plus for fans.

“I’m passionate about it. I know the players and coaches. I know what they’re trying to do. I know offensive tendencies, and what they’re trying to do on defense,” Holl said.

The Sycamores have seven freshmen on this year’s team, but Hull is optimistic the team can get back in the top half of the conference standings. ISU was sixth in the MVC last year with an 8-10 mark.

“You like to think they have a shot to finish near the top half of the league,” Holl said.
