Free Purdue University basketball spirit posters are available on campus to celebrate the success of the women's basketball team as they continue their quest in the NCAA tournament.

The 11-inch by 17-inch gold and black poster reads: "Rockin' the Big Dance, Boilermaker Women, Jammin' to Cleveland, 2006-07."

"We're proud of women's continuing great season under first-year head coach Sharon Versyp, the winningest first-year coach in university history, and we wanted to provide the fans with an appropriate poster to express their excitement and pride," said David Brannan, director of Purdue Marketing Communications.

The poster's graphics and copy allude to the Final Four destination in Cleveland, which is also home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Brannan said. His staff designed the posters, which are sponsored by the offices of University Relations and Athletic Public Relations.

The free posters are available to fans between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at these campus locations: Mackey Arena, Room 60; Purdue's Visitor Information Center, 504 Northwestern Ave.; the Purdue Marketing Communications office, South Campus Courts-D; Printing Services; and the Purdue Alumni Association office, located in the Dick and Sandy Dauch Alumni Center. The Visitor Information Center also is open from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

Led on the court by first team All-Big Ten senior guard Katie Geralds, the second-seeded Boilers tip off against No. 3 seed Georgia on Sunday (March 25) at Reunion Arena in Dallas in the Sweet 16 Regional semifinals. Game time is to be announced.

This is Purdue's fourth time to the round of 16 in the last five years. Versyp was named the Russell Athletic/WBCA Region VI Coach of the Year. She led the Boilermakers to a 28-5 regular-season record.
