The arrival on campus of freshman Chris Tuttle would help the Falcons emerge from the doldrums, and spark a streak of success that would last more than a decade.

Starting as a freshman, Tuttle averaged 9.7 points a game, a total she would surpass by a large margin her sophomore year, when she poured in almost 16 points per contest. During her junior year, she became the first woman in BG history to pass the 1,000 point plateau. Working with all-time assists leader Deanne Knoblauch in all four years at BG, Tuttle averaged just shy of 14 points a game in her final two seasons, as she was named as a MAC Scholar Athlete, and earned honorable mention on the Academic All-American team in 1983.

She finished her career as a Falcon with 1,420 points and 826 rebounds, both school records at the time of her graduation. While both marks have since been eclipsed, Tuttle left BG with no fewer than 18 school records.

Tuttle was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1989.
