             === Detroit gives Rademacher three-year extension ===
 
 Detroit,  MI (Sports  Network) - The University of Detroit signed head women's
 basketball  coach Autumn  Rademacher  to a  three-year  contract extension  on
 Monday.
 
 "I  am  extremely pleased with  the direction  of the Titan women's basketball
 program  under coach Rademacher's leadership. Her passion for the game as well
 as  for  the university  and the city  of Detroit is  evident every day," said
 university  athletic  director Keri  Gaither.  "Autumn  has brought  the  same
 intensity,  pride and success back into the Titan program as the head coach of
 her alma mater as she did when she played for the program."
 
 The  Titans  finished 20-14 last season,  including a 14-4 mark in the Horizon
 League,  and made an appearance in the Women's NIT. It marked the first 20-win
 campaign  for the  program since 1997, when  Rademacher -- then a guard -- led
 the school to an MCC title and NCAA Tournament berth.
 
 "I  would  like to  thank  Keri  (Gaither)  and  President Garibaldi  for  the
 privilege  to coach  the Detroit  women's  basketball team  for another  three
 years,"  said Rademacher.  "I am extremely grateful that they feel we have the
 program  headed in the right direction and have faith that we will continue to
 build on the success that we have had both on the court and in the classroom."
 
 Over  her four-year  tenure, Rademacher  has  compiled a  62-65 record,  which
 includes  a pair  of winning  years and  double-digit victory  totals in  each
 season.
