CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Southeast Missouri State University has scheduled a news conference for 6:30pm Monday.  Sources tell Sports Director Todd Richards that the university will name acting head coach John Ishee the permanent women's head basketball coach.

Ishee has enjoyed tremendous success leading the Redhawks to a regular season Ohio Valley Conference championship, an OVC Tournament title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournmanet.  The team also set a school record of 24 wins against 7 losses.
Todd Richards will have live coverage leading up to the news conference on Heartland News at 5pm and 6pm along with coverage of the team's victory celebration.  The celebration starts at 7pm at the Show Me Center.
