The 2011-12 season will be remembered as a collection of fantastic team accomplishments in program history. The Chippewas compiled the program's fifth 20-win season and for the second straight year earned an at-large bid to the WNIT. A month into the season the Maroon and Gold upset No. 12/14 Purdue to give the program its highest win over a ranked opponent. For the first time since 1991 CMU advanced to the MAC Championship game, where it also became the first fifth seed to play for the title. The 2011-12 team scored the most points, grabbed the most rebounds, had the most steals and blocked shots, recorded the second most made field goals, fourth most made three-pointers and assists in program history.
There were many individual accomplishments as well. These included, the Mid-American Conference's Sixth Player of the Year, Jalisa Olive, All-MAC Honorable Mention Team selections Taylor Johnson and Crystal Bradford, and MAC All-Freshman Team members Bradford, Jessica Green and Jas'Mine Bracey.
