As part of its preseason activities, the defending NCAA Division II-champion Ashland University women's basketball team will play host to a Kids' Clinic on Sunday (Sept. 17) and its "Breakfast With The Eagles" on Oct. 21.
- The Kids' Clinic will be Sunday from 3-5 p.m. in Kates Gymnasium for girls and boys in grades 1-8. The free clinic will feature basketball fundamentals while having a lot of fun. All players must bring their own basketball.
- "Breakfast With The Eagles" will be Oct. 21 from 8-10 a.m. in Kates Gym. It will feature team practice, and orange juice, water and donuts will be provided.
Ashland's women completed Division II's first 37-0 women's or men's basketball season in 2016-17, scoring a D-II women's hoops-record 3,456 points in the process. It was the program's second national championship.
The Eagles will go into 2017-18 with the longest winning streak (37 games) of any basketball team, men or women, at any level of the NCAA.
