Ernie Calverley Ernie Calverley’s name is synonymous with Rhode Island basketball. He is the greatest player in the school’s long and heralded basketball history. One shot made him famous, but the short, skinny kid from Pawtucket, R.I. dazzled college basketball fans in the 1940’s on a regular basis with his scoring, passing and dribbling abilities. The 5-9 Calverley came to Kingston in 1942 from the Slater Park area of Pawtucket, where he was All-State and All-New England at Pawtucket High School. Initially, head coach Frank Keaney was not impressed with Calverley’s small frame and was reluctant to let him play. The United States was involved in World War II, however, and Keaney needed players, so he gave the scrawny kid a tryout and was amazed by what he saw. As a freshman, Calverley led Keaney’s Running Rams to a 16-3 record as he poured in 346 points, but in the spring of 1943, Uncle Sam came calling and Calverley left Kingston behind for the Army Air Corps. After five months in the service, a follow-up physical revealed a heart murmur that led to his discharge and put his athletic career in jeopardy. Calverley came back to Kingston, returned to the court, and was named team captain - a position he would hold for three years. He scored 534 points in his sophomore season on the way to a 14-6 record. His 26.7 points per game average led the nation and remains the highest scoring average ever by a Rhode Island player. In 1944-45, his junior year, he poured in 547 points to lead his team to a 19-3 record and a trip to the prestigious National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York City. After upsetting Tennessee in the opening round, the Rams were drubbed by 6-10 center George Mikan and his DePaul squad, 97-53. Two nights later, Rhody struggled in the first half and then fell just short in a miraculous second half against St. John’s in a consolation match-up. It was the 1945-46 season when Keaney’s fast-paced team earned another trip to the NIT and were matched up with a strong Bowling Green team. “The NIT was the tournament back then. It was the top eight teams in the country,” said Calverley. The Rams battled hard and trailed the Falcons 72-70 with one minute left when Calverley drained a 35-footer to tie the score. With ten seconds left, Bowling Green scored to take a two point lead, setting up the aforementioned shot that made Calverley’s a household name. Bob Shea inbounded the ball to Calverley behind midcourt, who set his

2009-10 Univers i t y o f R h o d e I s l a n d M e n’s B a s ke t b a l l

feet and let fly a high-arching shot that swished through the net to tie the score at 74-74. Madison Square Garden went wild as fans rushed to the floor. “It was just a hoper. It was a two-handed set shot and hit nothing but net,” said Calverley 50 years later. In overtime, Rhode Island outscored their favored opponent, 9-6, and Calverley put on a dribbling exhibition to run out the clock as Rhody advanced to the semifinals with an 89-86 win. Calverley was lifted to the shoulders of Rhody fans and carried off the floor. One newspaper called Calverley’s desperation buzzer beater “the modern shot heard round the world.” Providence Journal writer Barney Madden called Calverley the “willowy wizard of basketball.” Calverley had made basketball history with a last second 62-footer. The Rams went on to beat Muhlenberg College in the semis as Calverley poured in 27 points and the Rams cruised to a 59-49 win and a berth in the finals versus Adolph Rupp’s top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats. The Rams battled hard against the heavily favored Wildcats and led 27-26 at halftime. With two minutes to go, the Ram lead was 45-44, but a pair of fouls sent Kentucky to the free throw line where they scored to take a 46-45 lead with 23 second remaining. The Rams were fouled, but failed from the line and lost 4645. The Madison Square Garden crowd erupted when it was announced that Ernie Calverley was named the tournament’s most valuable player. He was the only unanimous choice for the all-tournament team and, at the 50th anniversary of the NIT in 1987, was named to the All-Time NIT Team. “That was a great feeling because I didn’t expect it,” said Calverley of his naming to the all-time team. “It was great for Rhode Island to get the publicity.” Calverley’s playing career at URI was over, but he had led the nation in scoring, was a three-time All-American and had been named MVP of the NIT. His 441 points in 194546 gave him 1,868 for his career which, at the time, were the most points scored by an individual in college basketball history and still places him third on the Rhode Island all-

time scoring list. Even more amazing is that Calverley scored that many points despite the fact that the clock only stopped for fouls, meaning there was actually around three minutes less playing time in a game. Neither was there a 3-point shot, which would have favored Calverley, an outside shooter. Following his playing days in Kingston, he became the first player signed to play for the Providence Steamrollers, a new team formed in 1947 as part of a league that later combined with another to form the NBA. After three years, the team folded and Calverley returned to Pawtucket to teach. In 1957, he was named head coach at his alma mater where he remained for 10 seasons, earned two trips to the NCAA tournament and compiled a 139-114 record to become the second all-time winningest coach at URI behind his college coach, Frank Keaney. He remained at Rhode Island as the associate athletic director until his retirement in 1985. The 50th anniversary of “the shot” was featured in Sports Illustrated in March, 1996 and Calverley and four of his teammates from the 1945-46 team were honored prior to the 1995 Rhode Island-Providence matchup. Although Ernie Calverley will forever be remembered for his 62-foot miracle shot at the old Madison Square Garden on March 14, 1946, he should also be remembered as the greatest player ever to play at Rhode Island.

Ram Legends The Shot Heard Round the World It was mid-March, 1946 and Coach Frank Keaney was preparing his team for their fourth visit to the NIT at Madison Square Garden. The NIT was college basketball’s showcase event and only the top eight teams in the country earned invitations. The Rams had posted an impressive 19-2 regular-season record. Ernie Calverley, who would become one of Rhode Island’s greatest coaches, led the Rams and was on everyone’s All-American list, having established himself as the nation’s leading scorer. The innovative (he invented the fast break), inspirational and competitive Keaney relished the challenge of playing for a national championship in front of 18,000 basketball devotees in the Mecca of college basketball. Rodman Hall, home of the Rams, was a small bandbox of a gym that was the antithesis of Madison Square Garden. Keaney replaced the wooden backboard at Rodman Hall with a modern glass one and had the team manager place smudge pots with burning tobacco leaves to simulate the smoky conditions at Madison Square Garden. When the pairings were announced, it appeared that the Rams would have a short stay in New York. They drew Bowling Green with 6-foot-11 All-American center Don Otten. The Falcons went 27-4 and were seeded second behind Adolph Rupp’s Kentucky Wildcats. The remainder of the field included West Virginia, Arizona, Muhlenberg, St. John’s, and Syracuse. The Rhode Island-Bowling Green game opened the tournament on March 14. A huge delegation made their way to Manhattan from Kingston but thousands more were glued to their radios listening to Marty Glickman on WHN. “The Rams dazzled the crowd with their fast-breaking offense, full-court helter-skelter defensive press and their

passing --- sometimes the length of the court for easy baskets. The lead seesawed before Bowling Green took a 74-72 lead with 10 seconds left. A foul with eight seconds remaining gave the Rams the ball in their own backcourt. Bob Shea passed to Calverley who, with just three seconds left, let the ball sail from near the opposing foul line, and at the buzzer, the ball swished through the net to tie the score. Pandemonium broke loose with the crowd emptying onto the floor. When order was restored, the Rams took control in the overtime period and held on for an 82-79 victory. Press from around the country carried the headline the next day about “The Shot Heard ‘Round the World.” Dick Young of the New York Daily Record referred to “the record-breaking roof-shattering shot from some place on Broadway in the ceiling-shaking opening game.” He referred to Calverley as “the boney Sinatra of the court.” George Dawson, a Boston writer, explained the shot: “Eighteen thousands pairs of eyes watched the ball sail through the air, on and on. At first, it looked as if it would fall short of its mark, but it kept rising like one of those hard hits you see at the ball park that has home run written all over it. It found its mark and sailed through the hoop without as much as touching the rim.” How long was the shot? The answer --- 62-feet, measured from an X that Garden management painted on the floor. A mark that remained until the old Garden was razed in the 1960s. The next opponent was Muhlenberg, which had upset Syracuse. The Rams made quick work of the Ohio upstarts, winning, 59-49, with Calverley again putting on an AllAmerican performance.

The darlings of the Garden then faced top-ranked Kentucky for the NIT championship. After leading by a point at halftime, the Rams traded leads in the second half but missed their final three shots and lost to the Wildcats, 46-45. The International News Service said: “The only thing Rhode Island didn’t win at the NIT at Madison Square Garden was the tournament. The immense crowd last night actually booed the winner, Kentucky, which took the amazing Rams, 46-45, when the Southerners appeared to receive their gold wristwatches. Rhode Island had been the biggest sentimental favorite since Abel fought Cain and a mongoose had it out with a giant cobra. Ernie Calverley, the Rhode Island ace, was by far the standout man, and every one of the 36,950 eyes were on him every moment. And, in years to come, when great basketball players are discussed, Calverley’s name will arise.” And when great teams and great coaches are discussed, the 1945-46 Rams and Hall of Fame Coach Frank Keaney cannot be left out of the conversation.

Ram Legends Frank Keaney By an extraordinary coincidence, the field of the 1998 NCAA Basketball Championship included four schools whose coaches have done the most to shape the modern game: Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA, and Rhode Island. Rhode Island? Mentioned in the same breath as three superpowers of college basketball? Even the casual fan is at least acquainted with the legends of Phog, the Baron, and the Wizard of Westwood, but may scratch his head in bewilderment at the mention of “the Menty.” Yet Frank Keaney probably did more than any other coach to transform basketball into a running game emphasizing speed and stamina. It was he who originated the fast break, an innovation that revolutionized the sport no less than the forward pass changed football. In 28 years at Rhode Island, Keaney compiled an impressive 401-124 record, but the numbers scarcely measure his achievement. He turned a game of patterned plodding into 40 minutes of frenzied excitement while overflow crowds, delighted at the spectacle of racehorse basketball, howled their approval. In an era when most teams did well to score 40 or 50 points a game, Rhode Island averaged nearly 80 and routinely led the nation in scoring. A portly, wide-faced Irishman, Keaney belonged to the old-fashioned school of coaching that stressed character over technique. “My psychology of it is that you’ve got to feel victory if you’re going to win,” he declared. To his players, he was fond of emphasizing the difference between Will to Win and Love to Lose. “As far as techniques of the game, he was probably the worst coach I ever had,” admitted Ernie Calverley, perhaps the finest of all Keaney’s players. “But as far as being able to psyche

teams up and get them ready for games, he was super. He had a great way with all his players, from the substitute to the star.” But Keaney had something more - a restless imagination and a flair for showmanship. The fast break was not the only product of his maverick genius; there was a touch of originality in everything he did. A native of Boston, Keaney graduated from Bates in 1911. He played professional baseball and coached high school before coming to Rhode Island in 1920 as athletic director, coach of all sports, and chemistry instructor. Later he even produced a light blue dye, known as “Keaney blue,” a color his teams wore in place of the school’s official color, royal blue. Impatient with the conservative style of play then in fashion, he searched for ways to open up the game. His basketball teams ran opponents dizzy. Even before the center jump after each basket was abolished in 1935, Keaney had installed a fast-paced offense geared to quick passes after each jump or rebound. He kept careful charts of all shots taken, to verify his simple premise that “if we shoot more, we’ll make more.” His 1928-29 team (15-1, 41 points per game) was the first to earn notoriety as a “point a minute” team, an average that rose steadily in succeeding years. When the center jump was eliminated, Keaney unleashed the fast break in earnest. His first team under the new rule raced to a 19-2 record while averaging 67.3 points a game. Practices consisted of conditioning, scrimmages, free throws, lay-up moves, and prolonged drills in throwing the ball the length of the floor. Not surprisingly, Ram players also learned not to dribble. “He hated the dribble, absolutely hated it,” former basketball standout Earl Shannon declared. “He’d say, ‘What are you trying to do, prove there’s air in the ball?’” Even in practices his flair for the unorthodox surfaced. When his team shot poorly, Keaney installed 15-inch rims inside the

2009-10 Univers i t y o f R h o d e I s l a n d M e n’s B a s ke t b a l l

regulation 18-inch hoop to sharpen their eye. To prepare them for smoke-filled arenas like the Garden, he filled Rodman with smudge pots burning the foulest tobacco he could find. Most teams wilted in the face of the Rhode Island break. Unaccustomed to constant pressure and unable to stand the pace, some resorted inevitably to stalling. Keaney was at his most flamboyant against a timid opponent. When Tufts tried to stall, he dashed onto a stair landing and led the students in the school song. Maine tried to counter the break by staying inside a tight zone even though trailing by six points. Keaney responded by giving four of his players newspapers to read while the fifth held the ball. In all Keaney took his teams to four NIT tournaments, then the glamour tournament that attracted the nation’s top teams. Despite lacking the talent and depth of most rivals, they managed to reach the finals once, in 1946, losing to mighty Kentucky by a single point. Crowds loved Keaney’s antics no less than his scrappy teams and their blitzkrieg style, which left them prone to foul trouble. Down to four players in one game, Keaney shoved a chair onto the floor and told a startled official, “Here’s my fifth player. Let’s get on with the game.” In a NIT game against DePaul, he sent Mike Santoro, a 5-4 forward to jump center against 6-11 George Mikan. Predictably, rival coaches were less enthusiastic. Some resented Keaney because, as Shannon suggested, “I don’t think the Menty was averse to running it up, to maintain our scoring average.” Others simply regarded him as a heretic who played the game in a way they could not comprehend. That Keaney cared more for the opinion of the fans than of his peers was made evident when he advised his fellow coaches at a New York luncheon, “Give the crowds action. If some coach puts up a screwy defense, use a screwier offense. Then if you lose, pivot and go home.” To critics of his style he said simply, “We don’t say we’re right, but you’ve got to stop us.” Keaney retired from active coaching in 1948 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1960, the Hall of Fame’s second year. Frank William Keaney passed away on Oct. 10, 1967, at the age of 81.

Judging from the record, he knew something about team chemistry as well. His teams were 30-11, the No. 2 winning percentage in school history (.732), tops among coaches serving longer than a year. He lost only one home game, and his first squad remains the school’s only unbeaten team. Wessels gave up coaching when he left the college in 1910.

George Cobb - 1910-13 13-9 in three seasons Cobb took over the football and baseball teams when he arrived in 1909 to teach both horticulture and physical education. Cobb added basketball a year later and went 13-9 over three seasons (10-0 at home, 3-9 on the road). Cobb turned out winning records every year, running the college’s string to eight straight. But the team failed to attract enough players to compete from 1913 to ’15.

Fred Walker - 1918-19 7-1 in one season Fred Walker, a former major leaguer baseball player with the Cubs and Cardinals, turned in a 7-1 mark in his only season and remains No. 1 among all Ram coaches in winning percentage (.875). He was also the first coach to beat the Brown varsity. Walker served as athletic director and all-purpose coach for less than a year before leaving abruptly when the college declined to increase his $3,000 salary. A petition signed by 147 of the college’s 255 students could not budge the Board of Managers. 1918-19 7-1 (.875) 5-0 Home, 2-1 Away Head coach Fred Walker 1/18 25-19 W

Fred Murray - 1919-20 3-8 in one season Fred Murray, the third in a series of short-term athletic directors, struggled to keep the program together after America’s involvement in World War I. Most ablebodied upperclassmen had left school for military service or agricultural work, leaving a skeleton crew for sports. Murray’s only basketball team went 3-8, with two of its wins against the Newport YMCA. His football squad scored just 31 points in a 0-7-1 season, salvaging some pride by tying archrival Connecticut 7-7 in the season finale. 1919-20 3-8 (.273) 2-3 Home, 1-5 Away Head coach Fred Murray 12/13 24-20 W 12/18 21-33 L 1/9 10-12 L 1/10 15-26 L 1/24 29-22 W 1/31 12-24 L 2/10 20-26 L 2/21 17-11 W 2/28 17-19 L 3/12 18-23 L 3/20 11-25 L

Frank Keaney - 1920-48 401-124 in 28 seasons Frank Keaney, an exalted figure in URI history, stunned the sports world by introducing “racehorse basketball,” later known as the fast break. His impact was so profound that he entered the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1960, just its second year of existence. With a 401-124 record in 28 years, Keaney is the winningest Ram coach. His 1928-29 squad (15-1) was the first “point-a-minute” team, averaging 41 a game. His 1945-46 club (21-3) lost to Kentucky 46-45 in the NIT final, then considered the national title game. 1920-21 9-8 (.529) 7-1 Home, 2-7 Away Head coach Frank Keaney 12/7 87-25 W 12/10 26-34 L 12/14 27-26 W 12/17 28-24 W 1/7 20-23 L 1/8 21-33 L 1/11 20-30 L 1/22 20-44 L

Bob “Red” Haire - 1948-52 57-42 in four seasons Bob “Red” Haire, a former team captain and assistant coach under Frank Keaney, took on the daunting task of replacing the legend and lasted just four years. His teams compiled a 5742 record (.576) but two winning seasons gave way to two losing ones, the team’s first in 29 years. Haire played at URI from 1924-28 and returned as Keaney’s assistant in 1946. Two years later he began his reign with three straight losses, the team’s longest losing string since his sophomore season 23 years before. 1948-49 16-6 (.727) 5-1 (2nd) in Yankee Conference 9-1 Home, 6-3 Away, 1-2 Neutral Head coach Bob “Red” Haire 12/4 68-75 L VILLANOVA 12/7 48-65 L vs. Holy Cross (P) 12/11 50-67 L at St. John’s 12/14 86-41 W NEW HAMPSHIRE 12/17 94-60 W BROOKLYN 1/6 98-48 W MAINE 1/8 48-58 L at Connecticut 1/10 75-57 W RUTGERS 1/14 90-60 W SPRINGFIELD 1/19 68-61 W BROWN 1/22 71-91 L at Saint Joseph’s 2/8 78-42 W at Bucknell 2/11 42-52 L vs. Holy Cross (B) 2/15 74-61 W at Providence 2/17 69-64 W vs. Saint Joseph’s (P) 2/19 92-49 W U.S. COAST GUARD 2/21 70-49 W at New Hampshire 2/22 33-30 W at Maine 2/26 86-64 W CONNECTICUT 2/28 99-53 W PROVIDENCE 3/5 64-36 W at Springfield 3/9 72-49 W at Brown B - Boston, Mass. ; P - Providence, R.I. 1949-50 18-8 (.692) 6-1 (1st) in Yankee Conference 10-1 Home, 6-7 Away, 2-0 Neutral Head coach Bob “Red” Haire 11/26 62-46 W at Saint Joseph’s 12/6 46-63 L at Boston College 12/10 54-75 L at St. John’s 12/14 86-69 W BATES 12/15 57-59 L at Providence 12/17 90-50 W VERMONT 12/28 64-81 L at NC State (DC) 12/29 61-57 W vs. Wake Forest (DC) 12/30 65-60 W vs. N.

Jack Guy - 1952-57 60-57 in five seasons Jack Guy, a successful head coach at Bucknell, was brought in to return Rhode Island to the glory days of Frank Keaney. His 60-57 record included two winning years, two losing ones and a final .500 season. Guy’s best team went 17-9 in 1954-55 and carried on Keaney’s racehorse style, scoring 100 or more points seven times. But his next two squads opened up 1-10 and 1-7. After resigning as head coach, Guy remained at URI as an assistant football coach and spent the rest of his life in Kingston. 1952-53 13-10 (.565) 6-2 (2nd) in Yankee Conference 6-2 Home, 6-7 Away, 1-1 Neutral Head coach Jack Guy 12/3 82-70 W BOSTON COLLEGE 12/6 71-88 L SAINT JOSEPH’S 12/11 66-105 L at NC State 12/13 74-72 W at St. John’s 12/17 70-79 L at Siena 12/29 72-68 W at Boston College (BIT) 12/30 72-77 L vs. Georgetown (BIT) 1/5 79-81 L MAINE 1/7 82-92 L at Boston College (OT) 1/10 74-80 L at Connecticut 1/14 94-82 W NEW HAMPSHIRE 1/31 98-75 W at Brown 2/4 92-111 L at Saint Joseph’s 2/6 94-92 W SPRINGFIELD 2/10 66-92 L at Providence 2/12 88-69 W at Massachusetts 2/13 81-65 W at Vermont 2/18 93-75 W at New Hampshire 2/19 90-82 W at Maine 2/21 82-80 W CONNECTICUT 2/27 76-62 W PROVIDENCE 2/28 90-70 W BROWN 3/7 70-88 L at Springfield BIT - Boston Invitational Tournament 1953-54 8-13 (.381) 5-4 (3rd) in Yankee Conference 6-5 Home (Keaney), 2-8 Away Head coach Jack Guy 12/1 81-90 L CONNECTICUT (Exh.)* 12/3 62-70 L BOSTON COLLEGE 12/5 53-70 L SAINT JOSEPH’S 1/4 72-64 W MAINE 1/6 73-77 L BROWN (OT) 1/9 54-78 L CONNECTICUT 1/13 71-77 L at New Hampshire 1/16 78-75 W NORTHEASTERN 1/23 103-101 W at Boston College (OT) 2/3 83-96 L at Saint Joseph’s 2/5 76-71 W SPRINGFIELD 2/9 81-101 L at Providence 2/11 67-68 L MASSACHUSETTS 2/13 95-84 W VERMONT 2/17 94-79 W NEW HAMPSHIRE 2/20 74-79 L at Connecticut 2/22 80-75 W at Maine 2/23 67-78 L at Colby 2/26 82-67 W PROVIDENCE

All-Time Results Jack Kraft - 1973-80 103-88 in seven seasons From the untested Tom Carmody, URI turned to battle-tested Jack Kraft to revive the program. In 12 years at Villanova (196173), the Philadelphia native had a 243-95 record with six NCAA bids and a near-upset (68-62) of UCLA in the 1971 title game. It took five years to rebuild, but in 1977-78 the Rams (24-7) earned their first NCAA berth in 12 seasons and their best record since ’46. A year later they went 20-8 and earned an NIT bid, but failing health forced Kraft to step down after the 1980-81 opener. 1973-74 11-14 (.440) 5-5 (4th) in Yankee Conference 6-4 Keaney, 2-1 Prov.

All-Time Results Tom Penders - 1986-88 48-17 in two seasons When he arrived at Rhode Island, Tom Penders was already considered one of the top young coaches in the nation, based on a 125114 mark at unheralded Fordham, capped by five straight NIT trips. Despite taking over on Oct. 3, less than two weeks before practice began, he smoothly turned a 9-19 team into a 20-10 NIT club. In his second and final season, Penders led the Rams to a school-record 28 wins and their first NCAA berth in 10 years. After posting at 48-17 mark at URI, he moved on to coach at Texas. 1986-87 20-10 (.667) 12-6 (3rd) in Atlantic 10 (*) 11-3 Keaney, 1-0 Prov.
