Head Coach

Jim Ferry Head Coach• •Eighth Season Keene State, 1990

After seven seasons at Long Island University, Jim Ferry has turned the Blackbirds into consistent contenders in the Northeast Conference. The 2004-05 NEC Coach of the Year, Ferry has put his stamp on the LIU program, bringing a passion and intensity that has helped him become a highly successful head coach at the collegiate level. Ferry arrived on the Brooklyn campus and inherited a program that was in need of a complete overhaul. His first season saw immediate improvement in the squad and heading into his eighth season Ferry has built the Blackbirds into championship contenders by focusing on the fundamentals of a strong defense and an efficient offense. With a roster of talented, multi-dimensional athletes, Ferry has cultivated excitement around a program that has settled into its home at the state-of-the-art Wellness, Recreation and Athletics Center in downtown Brooklyn. Ferry took over the Blackbirds following an outstanding coaching record in the Division II and III ranks, collecting over 100 career wins in just four season, which is believed to make him the seventhfastest coach in NCAA history to reach the plateau. Ferry and his staff recognize the history of the program and have worked hard to restore the Blackbirds to their past glory.

2009-10 Long Island University Basketball

“We have a group of young and talented players here that have developed a winning identity,” Ferry said. “We’ve gotten quality individuals, good recruits, solid students and guys that have bought into the program. The philosophy we preach every day involves a commitment to come out and be tough, physical and aggresive, both offensively and defensively. If we consistently defend and outrebound our opponents we will win games.”

Ferry and the Blackbirds found themselves among the elite teams in the conference during the 2008-09 season as LIU posted a winning record with a 16-14 mark overall and a second-place tie in the standings with a 12-6 conference record. LIU ranked second in the league in both scoring offense and rebounding margin, while Jaytornah Wisseh earned all-NEC first team honors and Julian Boyd became the second NEC Rookie of the Year under Ferry. Ferry turned in one of his best coaching performances during the 2007-08 season after leading the Blackbirds to their best campaign in a decade. LIU was picked 11th in the league’s preseason poll, but he took a young squad and guided it to an 8-3 non-league mark. The Blackbirds finished the regular season with a winning record for the first time since 1997-98 and defied predictions to advance to the conference tournament. Wisseh was named second team all-conference, while David Hicks and Kyle Johnson earned all-rookie honors, establishing a young foundation that LIU has built its success upon. The Blackbirds had high expectations heading into the 2006-07 season, having been picked third in the preseason conference poll, but a rash of injuries plagued the roster. The season had its highlights, with senior James Williams moving into fourth-place on the career scoring list scoring and earning a spot on the All-NEC Second Team. Wisseh was named to the All-Rookie Team and the Blackbirds also won the “Battle of Brooklyn” for the second straight year with an 82-79 win over borough-rival St. Francis (N.Y.). LIU was hampered during the 2005-06 season by injuries as well including ailments to three starters at the same time - that resulted in a relatively slow start. The Blackbirds rallied down the stretch, closing out the regular season with eight wins in their final 12 games. The only losses came against the top three teams in the standings as LIU closed the year on a roll and advanced to the league tournament. The 2004-05 Blackbirds were picked 11th in the preseason coaches poll, but under Ferry’s guidance the young team earned a fourth-place finish in the league standings with a 10-8 record. The Blackbirds’ turnaround was a six-game improvement from the previous year, which

Head Coach Following his playing career, Ferry embarked on a coaching career that included eight years as an assistant coach. He started at his alma mater for a year, before moving onto Bentley College. As an assistant, he helped Bentley win the 1992-93 Northeast 10 regular season championship and earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament. He earned his first head coaching job at Plymouth State in 1998, where in just one campaign with the Panthers, Ferry guided the team to a 22-8 mark to break the school record for wins. Plymouth State also won a share of the Little East Conference title and was runner-up at the ECAC New England Tournament. Ferry returned to his home state when he took the Adelphi University head coaching position in 1999-2000. During his three seasons with the Panthers, Ferry began to make his mark in the coaching ranks. Ferry’s first team set a school-record for wins with a 23-7 record and claimed its first regular-season conference championship in 36 years. Adelphi also advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Division II Tournament.

was not only the best about-face in the league that season, but the biggest jump for a team in four years. As a result, Ferry was named the 2004-05 NEC Coach of the Year in just his third season on the job. Opposing teams know what to expect when they see Ferry on the opposite bench. An intense competitor, his teams reflect his passion for the game, its techniques and traditions. A tireless recruiter, he has assembled a diverse multinational roster. Despite the varied backgrounds of his athletes, Ferry cultivates their common traits to mold them together seamlessly into his overall vision for the team.

In 2000-01, Ferry’s Adelphi squad opened the season with 31 straight wins and led all NCAA Division I, II and III teams with a .969 winning percentage. He led the team to a No. 1 national ranking and the Elite Eight of the national tournament. His final season with the Panthers included a second straight trip to the Elite Eight and a No. 4 ranking after finishing 28-3. During his time at Adelphi, Ferry collected three Metropolitan Coach of the Year awards and was also named the Basketball Times Division II Coach of the Year in 2000-01. Ferry and his wife, Kelly, live in Merrick, N.Y., with their four children: Victoria, twins Hannah and James, and Leo.

Ferry arrived on LIU’s campus in downtown Brooklyn prior to the 2002-03 season with a strong understanding of the history of the program he was inheriting. At the time of his hiring, LIU games were played in the Schwartz Center, which houses the historic Brooklyn Paramount Theater, the home of the Blackbirds from 1963-2006. Under Ferry, the Blackbirds opened a new chapter in the program’s history by moving into its new $45 million home - the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. Ferry has seen his teams win almost 67 percent of their home games since moving into one of the best home courts in the Metropolitan area. Ferry’s ties to New York City go back to his youth while growing up in Elmont, N.Y., as the son of a New York City transit police officer. He played one year at New York Tech before transferring to Keene State, where he posted a double-figures scoring average for his career. Ferry led the Owls in scoring as a junior and holds the single-game record for free throw attempts with 19. He graduated in 1990, earning a degree in safety studies.

“We’ve been able to establish ourselves as one of the top teams in the league having been picked very high in the preseason polls,” he said. “By bringing in quality people and recruiting to our style and philosophy we’ve built the program the right way. The Wellness Center and the changes on campus have shown people this is a great place to go to school. We have the ability to win a conference championship and we want to stay at the top as one of the premier programs in the Northeast Conference and I think we will continue to move in that direction.”

The Blackbirds posted a 12-6 record in league play last season, which was good enough to tie for second place, and posted a winning record for the first time in over a decade. This all came on the heels of the previous season which saw LIU post the fifth-best non-league record in NEC annals (8-3). The success head coach Jim Ferry has cultivated during his time in Brooklyn should pay dividends as the program seeks to capture its first league title since 1997-98.

A three-year starter, Hicks is the defensive leader for the Blackbirds. The 6-1 guard has improved offensively and boasts a strong all-around game that provides balance to the lineup.

A backcourt loaded with experience leads the returnees and with a group of young and talented frontcourt athletes the Blackbirds hope to continue the program’s ascent after losing just two seniors from last year’s squad. However, LIU will have to adjust to a trio of unforeseen losses to the roster in the offseason. Aurimas Adomaitis (Lithuania) and Lucas Faggiano (Argentina) returned to their home countries for family reasons, while sophomore Julian Boyd is out for an indefinite amount of time for health reasons. Despite the losses, three experienced starters - senior Jaytornah Wisseh and juniors David Hicks and Kyle Johnson - return to lead the way.

“David is one of the most competitive players I’ve been around,” Ferry said. “He has become our defensive leader and really cares about winning. He’s a complete player and his ability to rebound and defend is something we thrive on.”

“The expectations are the same in the end,” Ferry said “I think it’s going to be a different road to get there. Last year we had all the pieces to be one of the best teams in the league from start to finish, whereas now I think it will be a development process and we’ll have make some adjustments during the season.”

At 6-5, Johnson can pose matchup problems for opposing teams with his ability to shoot from the inside and post up smaller guards. An improved defender, Johnson has shown the ability to attack the glass with six career double-digit rebounding games, which will help offset the losses in the frontcourt.

With eight players from last year returning in total and another talented recruiting class in the fray, Ferry and his staff will work to continue the success of the Long Island men’s basketball program.

“Kyle had a great offseason and really tightened his game,” Ferry said. “He’s become a true scorer and is working hard on the defensive side of the floor as well. Both Kyle and David have played minutes as if they are going to be seniors. They have a lot of experience and know what it takes to win here.”

David Hicks

“There are a handful of stars in this league and he’s one of them,” Ferry said. “He has received individual accolades, but what’s most important to him now is winning a championship.” Hicks and Johnson round out the trio of returning starters in the backcourt and have both assumed increased leadership roles as upperclassmen.

Sophomore Michael Culpo rounds out the quartet of returning guards after showing promise in his rookie campaign. A dangerous outside shooter, Culpo started a pair of games last season and was playing well before being slowed by an injury midway through the year. He managed to come back late in the year, but has improved his ball-handling and quickness and is poised for a breakout campaign. “He’s in great shape and he’s worked really hard,” Ferry said. “We’re expecting big things out of him with his expanded game.” “All four of our returning guards have played, contributed and know what it takes to win,” Ferry said. “I don’t know if there’s a deeper backcourt in the conference. We’re going to play to their strengths and rely on them as the frontcourt develops.” Freshmen Corey Wright, Jr., and Kurt Joseph round out the guards for LIU. Wright came in to replace Faggiano and should be able to slide into the role as a backup point guard. A left-handed guard, Wright possesses great quickness and court-vision and as he adapts to the college game his ability to handle the ball will allow the Blackbirds to do different things offensively. Joseph joined the team as a walk-on and should provide depth in the backcourt. His work ethic and energy will be a positive for the team.

Guards Ferry and the Blackbirds will rely on a backcourt headlined by Wisseh this season. The 6-foot-1 point guard has earned a slew of individual accolades, including All-NEC First Team and All-Met First Team honors last year. One of the top players in the metropolitan area and the unquestioned leader for LIU, Wisseh will set the tone for the squad as it challenge the league’s elite.

Season Outlook Forwards The Blackbirds lost a pair of starters in the frontcourt from a squad that ranked second in the league in rebounding margin. Ron Manigault, a versatile forward who ranked second in the league in rebounding and also shared ball-handling duties, and Adomaitis, a 69 center, were stalwarts in the frontcourt the last two seasons and will be replaced by a group of talented, but young forwards. Boyd, the reigning league rookie of the year, was the top candidate to slide into the starting lineup after averaging 10.5 points and averaging 6.4 boards as a freshman. He worked in the offseason on expanding his offensive game before being shut down with health concerns. His return is questionable, but should he return healthy his presence will be a big boost to the Blackbirds. Sophomore Arnold Mayorga heads into the season as a likely candidate to assume a larger role in the forward rotation. The 6-7 athlete appeared in 28 games as a rookie, but has made vast improvements in his game in the offseason. A strong rebounder, he is also capable of knocking down the outside shot. “Julian has potential to be an all-league, player of they year type performer, but we’re hoping things work out for Julian – more so for his health – and if he comes back we’re going to have a very good team,” Ferry said. “We’re expecting great things out of Arnold. He’s a very skilled player and we’re going to play him at the four and five to use his versatility.”

Redshirt freshmen Miguel Bocachica and Booker Hucks will add to the frontcourt rotation after getting acclimated to the college game last year. Both stand 6-foot-5, but bring different qualities to the court. Bocachica is a dangerous outside shooter, while Hucks is an athlete that can get to the basket.

“They will both have the chance to contribute in the frontcourt where we are thin,” Ferry said. “They’re going to have ups and downs as they get game experience, but we will need them to step up and play more like sophomores.” Freshmen Jamal Olasawere and Kenny Onyechi have the coaches excited by their potential and should also be able to step in and contribute right away as freshmen. Olasawere is similar to Manigault in that he is an athletic player that can attack the basket from the wing and will fight for rebounds. The 6-7 Onyechi has the look of a more traditional post player and will give LIU a

strong presence under the basket. A physically gifted player, he is a solid rebounder and can finish down low.

Kyle Johnson

“We’re looking for both of them to really emerge as freshmen,” Ferry said. “I think they will be significantly better as the season goes on, but once they click I think our team will become very good.” Junior Milos Nikolic is an intriguing walk-on for the Blackbirds. A 610 forward, he played two seasons at the City College of San Francisco, the same school that produced Manigault, and will give the frontline added size and depth. Schedule The Blackbirds face a competitive schedule with a mix of NCAA tournament-tested teams and teams on the rise that should prepare Ferry’s squad for the wide-open NEC race. The season tips off with a trip to visit local-rival St. John’s on Nov. 13 and the home schedule opens the following week with a visit from Navy on Nov. 21. Long Island will be tested by 17 road games, which includes trips to Seton Hall and Bethune-Cookman. There is also a spot in the Dr Pepper Classic in Chattanooga, Tenn., where LIU will join a field that includes 2009 NCAA participants Morgan State and Chattanooga, as well as Eastern Kentucky which is coming off an 18-win season. The conference schedule opens on Dec. 3 with a visit from Bryant. Although the Bulldogs don’t become full NEC members until 201213, both contests this season will count as league games. Following a six-game non-conference stretch, the league schedule resumes in earnest on Jan. 7 with a visit from defending league champion Robert Morris. LIU will have a pair of televised games this year, with the annual “Battle of Brooklyn” against St. Francis (N.Y.) airing on MSG on Feb. 6. The Feb. 25 game at Central Connecticut State will also be televised on MSG. “Our schedule is going to be very challenging,” Ferry said. “Road trips to St. John’s and Seton Hall and the Chattanooga trip with two NCAA tournament teams will give us a sense of where we’re at and what we need to work on. We will focus on improving every day and keep a sense of what the big picture is. The ultimate goal is winning a Northeast Conference championship.” The top eight teams will qualify for the conference tournament, which tips off on March 4 at the campus of the four highest seeded teams and will conclude with the league’s automatic NCAA bid on the line on March 10 in the NEC Championship.

Sophomore Kyle Johnson scored a game-high 23 points, but it was not enough for Long Island to overcome St. John’s in the season-opener for both squads, losing 73-63 at Carnesecca Arena. The Blackbirds got within three points in the second half before succumbing down the stretch. St. John’s raced out to a 15-3 lead ignited by eight points from D.J. Kennedy in the first six minutes. A dunk by Paris Horne put SJU up 12 before the Blackbirds responded with a 12-3 spurt during which Johnson scored nine straight points. A foul shot by sophomore David Hicks cut the margin to 18-15. LIU (0-1) cut the deficit to 21-19 on a jumper from Johnson, but a missed threepointer by Johnson on the next possession cancelled an opportunity to take the lead and St. John’s responded with nine quick points to take a 30-21 lead. The Red Storm maintained a five-point cushion before a pair of foul shots from Sean Evans just before halftime gave the hosts a 36-29 lead at the break. Following the intermission, a pair of layups from junior Jaytornah Wisseh and a jumper from junior Aurimas Adomaitis quickly cut the St. John’s lead to 38-35 with 19:03 to play. The Red Storm buckled down however and held LIU scoreless for five minutes and built the lead to 12 points, capped off by two foul shots by Paris Horne with 15:25 to play. A three-point play by senior Ron Manigault ended LIU’s scoring drought and made it 47-38. The Red Storm followed with six-straight points before consecutive three-pointers by freshman Michael Culpo with just over six minutes to play got LIU within 62-54, but that was as close as it got the rest of the way as SJU iced the game at the foul line down the stretch. Johnson was the only LIU player in double-figures and he added six rebounds. Culpo chipped in with nine points, while Wisseh finished with eight, but committed seven turnovers. The Blackbirds shot just 39.2 percent for the game and was just 17of-31 (.541) from the line. Kennedy scored 23 points to lead St. John’s, while Evans added 13 points and 11 boards. The Red Storm shot 39.3 percent for the game and overcame a 4-of-23 (.174) effort from the arc.

Sophomore Kyle Johnson scored 23 points for the second straight game to lead a hot-shooting Long Island (1-1) effort in a 78-68 win over Army. The Blackbirds shot 50.9 percent overall and 55.9 percent from three-point range. Army trailed by as many as 17 points in the contest before an 8-0 run gave the Black Knights a 50-48 lead with 11:01 to play on a three-pointer by Julian Simmons. LIU tied it on a layup by junior Jaytornah Wisseh on the next possession and used a 10-2 run to build a six-point lead. A three-pointer from sophomore David Hicks led to eight consecutive points capped off by a three-pointer from freshman Michael Culpo to give LIU a 12-point lead and Army got no closer than five points the rest of the way. Johnson matched a career-high with five three-pointers and grabbed eight rebounds. The Blackbirds finished the day 15-of-27 from three-point range and outrebounded the Black Knights, 36-27, to help overcome 20 turnovers. Josh Miller led four Army players in double-figures with 15 points. The Black Knights converted LIU turnovers into 27 points and held a 30-14 scoring advantage in the paint, but could not overcome the Blackbirds’ outside shooting. LIU opened with a 10-2 opening salvo and quickly pushed the lead to 29-12 after Wisseh, Hicks and Johnson hit trifectas on consecutive possessions. Army held LIU scoreless for a three-minute span and rattled off a 10-0 run to trim the deficit to 29-22 with 5:39 left in the first half. After a three-point play by Boyd gave LIU a 34-24 lead, but Army used a 10-3 run to close the half and got within three points at halftime.

Long Island (1-2) shot just 32.1 percent from the field in a 76-63 loss at Canisius at the Koessler Athletic Center. LIU took an early 5-2 lead on a threepointer by sophomore Kyle Johnson. Following four straight points from Canisius, junior Aurimas Adomaitis responded with a jumper in the lane to give LIU a 7-6 lead, but that was the last time the visitors were in front. Canisius used a 7-0 run late in the first half to build a 10-point cushion capped by a three-pointer from Thomas VasquezSimmons that made it 30-20 with 3:49 left in the half. A three-pointer from freshman Arnold Mayorga and a foul shot from freshman Michael Culpo trimmed the deficit to six before Frank Turner converted a layup just before halftime to put Canisius up 34-26 at the break. The Blackbirds got within 42-37 after a layup by sophomore Ike Udanoh was followed by a trifecta from Culpo. The Golden Griffins responded with an 8-1 run to build the lead back up to 13 points. A three-point play from Greg Logins made it 54-41 with 9:58 to play and LIU got no closer than nine the rest of the way. Culpo led Long Island with 13 points and Johnson chipped in with 11, but they were the only players in double-figures. Senior Ron Manigault grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds. LIU shot just 19-of-32 (.594) from the foul line and went 8-of-29 (.276) from three-point range. Chris Gadley led the Golden Griffins with 22 points and eight rebounds. He was 8of-10 from the field and hit a pair of three-pointers. Turner chipped in with 19 points as Canisius shot 46.3 percent from the floor and held a 42-34 edge in rebounding.

Long Island (1-3) dropped its second straight game despite a game-high 25 points from junior Jaytornah Wisseh, falling to Saint Peter’s, 69-59, at the Yanitelli Center. The Blackbirds led by as many as 10 points in the second half, but could not overcome a hot-shooting Peacocks squad that shot 51.9 percent after halftime, including 5-of-9 from behind the arc. A free throw by senior Ron Manigault just after halftime put LIU ahead, 32-22, for its largest lead of the contest. Following a three-pointer by Wisseh with 14:44 to play, the Blackbirds were ahead 41-34, but five straight points by the Peacocks’ Nick Leon cut the lead to two. A layup by Manigault ended the LIU scoring drought and a three-point play by Wisseh quickly built the lead to 48-41. Saint Peter’s responded by holding Long Island without a field goal for over six minutes and used a 10-1 run to take a 51-49 lead on two free throws from Akeem Gooding. The teams went back-and-forth until sophomore Ike Udanoh hit a long jumper with 4:08 to play to tie the game for the final time at 56-56. A jumper by Ryan Bacon and a three-pointer from Brandon Hall gave the Peacocks a five-point lead that it did not relinquish. Saint Peter’s pushed the lead to as much as 11 and held off LIU by going 6-of-10 from the foul line down the stretch. LIU shot just 32.1 percent in the second half and was just 2-of-12 from three-point range, while committing a season-high 21 turnovers. Wisseh was the only player in double-figures, but he was hounded by the Saint Peter’s defense all night and shot just 8-of-20 from the floor and committed eight turnovers. Manigault grabbed 11 rebounds for his second straight double-digit rebounding effort. Bacon led the Peacocks’ second-half charge and finished with 18 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks. Leon finished with 21 points and six assists to help Saint Peter’s pick up its first win. Long Island used a 10-0 run midway through the first half to take early control of the game. After a Bacon layup tied it 8-8, Udanoh started the run with a layup of his own. A pair of foul shots by sophomore Kyle Johnson capped the spurt to make it 16-8. Saint Peter’s managed to get back within 25-22, but a layup by Manigault and a four-point play by Johnson just before the buzzer closed out the first half and gave LIU a 31-22 lead at the break.

Long Island (2-3, 1-0 NEC) opened Northeast Conference play with a 73-58 win at Saint Francis (Pa.)in DeGol Arena. Freshman Julian Boyd came off the bench to score 13 points as four Blackbirds finished in double-figures and senior Ron Manigault grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds. Long Island trailed by five in the early going, but a 7-0 run sparked by a threepointer from sophomore Kyle Johnson put LIU ahead for good. A lay-in by junior Jaytornah Wisseh gave the Blackbirds a 14-11 lead it would not relinquish. Sophomore David Hicks started an 11-2 spurt with a lay-up and then a steal followed by another lay-in. A trey from Johnson with 3:31 to go in the half gave LIU a 32-17 lead before the Red Flash chipped away and cut the deficit to nine on a Grant Suprenant jumper to make it 34-25 at the break. LIU opened the second half with a 14-2 run to build a 21-point cushion. Boyd took over from there scoring five straight points, capped by a thunderous dunk to make it 53-31 with 12:10 to play. Another lay-in by Boyd gave LIU its largest lead of the night at 56-32 and the Red Flash got no closer than 13 the rest of the way. Johnson led all scorers with 17 points, while Wisseh and Hicks each finished with 11 points to round out LIU’s double-digit scorers. Manigault’s work on the glass helped the Blackbirds to a 40-29 advantage, which accounted for 26 second-chance LIU points. Saint Francis shot 43.6 percent from the floor, but were just 2-of-13 (.154) from three-point range. Devin Sweetney led three players in double-digits for the Red Flash with 13 points.

Long Island fell to Robert Morris, 81-70, in the Sewall Center. Junior Aurimas Adomaitis led four Blackbirds in double-figures with a career-high 17 points, but it was not enough to overcome the Colonials who shot 56.6 percent from the floor. Long Island (2-4, 1-1 NEC) used an 8-2 run early on to take a 16-15 lead on a three-pointer by freshman Michael Culpo with 12:28 to go in the first half, but that was LIU’s last lead of the night. Rob Robinson tied the game on a foul shot and sparked a 17-4 spurt for RMU. Ifeanyi Ehirim capped the run with a dunk to make it 32-20 with 4:30 left in the half. A lay up by sophomore Kyle Johnson cut the deficit to seven, but Jimmy Langhurst scored the last five points of the half to put the Colonials up 39-27 at the intermission. LIU pulled within six early in the second half after Adomaitis scored three points and a three-pointer by Johnson was followed by a pair of foul shots from junior Jaytornah Wisseh to make it 41-35. That was as close as the Blackbirds got as the Colonials’ lead eventually swelled to 67-51 following five straight points on a three from Gary Wallace and jumper from Mezie Nwigwe. Adomaitis scored three straight points to start a run for the Blackbirds as they pulled within 69-60 on a trifecta from Johnson with 3:22 to play, but the Colonials scored the next five points and never trailed by fewer than 11 points from there. Adomaitis finished the night 6-of-7 from the field and 5-of-7 from the foul line to go with six rebounds. Johnson and Culpo added 14 points apiece, while freshman Julian Boyd added 11 points and eight rebounds. LIU shot 55.6 percent in the second half, but it could not overcome 29.7 percent in the first half. Robinson paced Robert Morris with 15 points. Wallace and Langhurst added 13 points each, while Nwigwe chipped in with 10 points. The Colonials shot a blistering 56.6 percent overall and 50.0 percent from three-point range.

Long Island dropped a back-and-forth affair to Iona, 68-61, at the Wellness Center. The Blackbirds led by as many as seven points in the second half, but succumbed after the Gaels rattled off a late 12-2 run. LIU (2-5) was playing just its second home game of the year. A jumper by sophomore David Hicks with 4:01 to play broke a 51-51 tie and gave LIU a two-point advantage. Iona responded on the next possession with a pair of foul shots by Jermel Jenkins that tied the game and started the decisive run. The Gaels converted consecutive Blackbird turnovers for baskets to build a 57-53 lead which eventually ballooned to an eight-point lead when a steal and layup by Scott Machado made it 63-55 with 1:30 to play. Long Island clawed back to within 64-61 with 0:16 to play on a layup by junior Jaytornah Wisseh, but Iona hit its final four foul shots to hold on and snap a fourgame losing streak of its own. The Blackbirds scored the first four points of the game and managed to lead much of the first half. A four-point play by sophomore Kyle Johnson put LIU ahead 18-14 at the 10:37 mark, but Iona managed to battle back and take a 21-20 lead on a tip in by Alejo Rodriguez. Johnson broke a 24-24 tie with a foul shot and freshman Julian Boyd scored consecutive buckets to give LIU a 29-24 lead at halftime. Johnson and Boyd both posted double-doubles, scoring a game-high 14 points each and collecting 13 and 10 rebounds, respectively. Hicks chipped in with 10 points, while Wisseh gave out a season-high nine assists. The Blackbirds held a commanding, 47-31, edge in rebounds, but shot just 29.0 percent in the second half and 33.9 percent for the game. Iona was paced by Kashif Pratt’s 12 points, while Machado and Devon Clarke scored 11 points apiece. The Gaels overcame a sluggish start offensively, hitting just 2-of-21 three-pointers to start the game before hitting four of their last five. Iona shot 50.0 percent from the floor in the second half and 41.1 percent for the game and converted 18 LIU turnovers into 23 points.

Long Island needed all of sophomore Kyle Johnson’s career-high 25 points to hold off New Hampshire, 76-72, at the Wellness Center. The Blackbirds hit 10-of-10 from the foul line during the final minute to hold off the Wildcats. Long Island (3-5) used a 10-0 run in the first half to take a lead it would not relinquish. After Radar Onguetou hit a layup midway through the period that gave UNH a 16-15 lead, the Blackbirds responded with a layup from freshman Michael Culpo to ignite the run. Sophomore David Hicks capped the spurt with a layup at the 5:36 mark to make it 25-16. UNH got within 27-25 before senior Tyrone Mattison answered with a threepointer to put LIU up five and the Blackbirds eventually went into halftime with a 34-29 lead. The Wildcats scored the first five points of the second half and tied it on a layup by Alvin Abreu before LIU ran off eight straight points. Culpo led the charge hitting a layup to open the spurt and added a three-pointer to make it 41-34 before Adomaitis tacked on a foul shot. LIU pushed the lead to nine points on two foul shots by freshman Julian Boyd, but a 10-2 run got UNH within one. LIU built the lead back to 66-59 on a three-point play by Boyd, but the Wildcats hit three thrifectas in the final minute and a dunk by Brian Benson that made it 74-72 with 0:18 to play, but Johnson hit a pair of foul shots and Boyd blocked a shot from Tyrone Conley with 0:12 left to seal the win. Boyd and junior Jaytornah Wisseh scored 10 point. The Blackbirds shota season-high 62.5 percent from the arc.

Long Island stifled Bethune-Cookman at the Wellness Center and claimed a 71-46 win. The Blackbirds turned 17 Wildcats turnovers into 22 points and limited B-CU to 32.1 percent shooting. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh led a balanced scoring effort with 14 points. The Blackbirds raced out to a 6-0 lead and never looked back after junior Aurimas Adomaitis hit an opening layup and senior Ron Manigault converted back-to-back tip-ins. The Wildcats got within three points twice, including 1411 following a jumper from Tyrel Adams, but that was as close as they could get. LIU outscored B-CU, 17-7, to close out the half and Wisseh’s deep three just before the buzzer made it 31-18. The second half opened with a 9-4 run by Long Island, bookended by layups from Adomaitis to build the lead to 40-22. Bethune-Cookman scored the next four points, but a three-pointer from Tyrone Mattison stopped the threat and kick-started a 13-4 spurt by LIU which ended with two more treys from Mattison to make it 53-30. The Blackbirds cruised from there as the Wildcats never got closer than 19 points and claimed their biggest win since Dec. 1, 2007 (Hartford, 84-62). Wisseh led all scorers and added six assists without a turnover. Manigault added 11 points and nine rebounds, while Mattison added 11 points off the bench. The Blackbirds allowed only Elliott Stanley to score double-figures with 12 points. B-CU’s leading scorer, C.J. Reed, was limited to five points on 2-of-16 shooting and the Wildcats were just 1-of-6 from three-point range on the night. The 46 points were the fewest allowed by LIU since an 80-39 win over CCNY on Dec. 22, 2005.

Long Island University went toe-to-toe on the road with Manhattan, but came away with a narrow 65-61 loss in Draddy Gymnasium. The game was a back-andforth affair with 12 lead changes, but LIU was held without a field goal in the final 4:54 and saw its two-game win streak snapped. Long Island (4-6) trailed 28-25 at halftime and fell behind by seven after Devon Austin scored the first four points of the second half for Manhattan. After Andrew Gabriel converted a layup to make it 34-31, the Blackbirds responded with a 9-0 run. Senior Ron Manigault and sophomore David Hicks converted consecutive layups to give Long Island a 35-34 lead and a bucket by junior Jaytornah Wisseh was followed by a trey from Hicks to cap the run and push LIU’s lead to six. Manhattan came back with consecutive three-pointers by Chris Smith and a jumper from Patrick Bouli to take a 42-40 lead and the Jaspers stretched the lead following a dunk from Smith. Although a three-pointer from sophomore Kyle Johnson ended an 8-0 run, Smith continued his torrid pace by scoring Manhattan’s next nine points. Four-straight points from Wisseh and a layup by Manigault gave LIU the lead, 54-53, with 7:36 to play. A dunk by freshman Julian Boyd pushed the lead to three, but Darryl Crawford quickly tied the game. After a layup by Boyd with 4:54 to play gave LIU a 58-56 lead the Jaspers clamped down defensively and pulled ahead. Chris Smith scored on a drive with 3:47 to play that gave the hosts a 60-58 lead it would hold despite going just 5-of-10 from the line the rest of the way. Hicks led the Blackbirds with 16 points, while Wisseh added 14 points and nine assists. Johnson and Boyd each added 10 points, while Manigault contributed nine points and a game-high eight rebounds. LIU shot 41 percent from the field, but was just 3-of-14 (.214) from the arc. Smith led all scorers by pouring in all 20 of his points after halftime. Austin and Crawford chipped in with 12 and 10 points for the Jaspers, respectively. The first half featured seven ties, the last of which came at 17-17 with 6:30 left in the half. The Jaspers scored five straight to take a 22-17 lead on a three-pointer from Austin and did not trail again the rest of the period. A jumper by Hicks with 0:48 left got LIU within three at halftime.

Sophomore Kyle Johnson scored a career-high 26 points and junior Jaytornah Wisseh added 21, but it was not enough as Long Island fell to Charlotte, 79-68, at Halton Arena. The Blackbirds were tied at halftime, but the 49ers used a 22-5 spurt to pull away midway through the second half. A jumper by Johnson at the 18:19 mark tied the contest at 31-31, but that was the last tie of the night as Charlotte scored nine straight points, before a jumper by freshman Michael Culpo broke the run to make it 40-33. The 49ers continued to click offensively and eventually pushed the lead to 53-36 after benefiting from an intentional foul, technical foul and the ensuing possession in a 14 second span. Charles Dewhurst hit 5-of-6 foul shots to give the hosts their largest lead of the night. Long Island (4-7) managed to close within nine points in the closing minutes on an 8-1 spurt. A dunk by freshman Julian Boyd started the run and he finished it off with 1:01 to play on a layup to make it 74-65. Charlotte hit 5-of-6 from the foul line down the stretch to hold off LIU and a three-pointer from Johnson with 0:22 to play closed out the scoring. Johnson and Wisseh were the only Blackbirds in double-figures, as the team shot just 35.6 percent from the floor. Senior Ron Manigault and Boyd each grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds. Boyd narrowly missed a double-double as he finished with eight points. Lamont Mack led five Charlotte players in double-figures with 15 points on five trifectas. DiJuan Harris added 13 points and 10 assists without a turnover. Charlotte pulled away in the second half by shooting 61.5 percent. LIU hit its first three shots and a pair of foul shots to build an early 10-5 lead. Charlotte responded with a 15-4 run, holding the Blackbirds without a field goal for almost seven minutes to build a 20-14 lead. An 8-0 spurt by Long Island over a 4:45 span capped by a Wisseh three-pointer made it 22-20 with 2:54 to play. The teams went back-and-forth the rest of the half and a lay up by Boyd sent the teams in tied at the intermission.

Long Island picked up a hard-earned 57-44 win over Northeast Conference foe Central Connecticut State at the Wellness Center. The Blackbirds held the Blue Devils to three points over the final 6:15 to pull away and improve to 5-7 (2-1 NEC). Junior Jaytornah Wisseh led all players with 16 points. Freshman Michael Culpo gave LIU the lead for good at 29-28 with 14:24 to play on the team’s first trifecta of the day. Wisseh and freshman Julian Boyd alternated LIU’s next four field goals and extended the advantage to 37-32 with 10:19 to play. CCSU followed with consecutive layups from Aaron Hall and Ken Horton to draw within a point. A layup by Johnson and a foul shot from Culpo made it 43-39 with 6:46 to play before Ptacek drained two foul shots for the Blue Devils. Junior Aurimas Adomaitis converted a layup to ignite a decisive 8-0 run for LIU. A three-pointer by Ptacek broke the spurt, but Wisseh scored four points in the final two minutes and Culpo tacked on two more to give LIU a 14-3 run to close the game. Wisseh was joined by Johnson and Culpo in double-figures with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Senior Ron Manigault added eight rebounds. Ptacek led CCSU with 15 points and Horton, the NEC’s leading scorer entering the day, was limited to six points on 3-of-9 shooting. CCSU opened the day with a 5-0 run, but LIU came right back with Adomaitis scoring seven points in a 9-0 run. The period had six ties and neither team led by more than four points. The Blue Devils took a onepoint lead into halftime after Aaron Hall’s jumper with 31 seconds left made it 23-22.

The Blackbirds eventually stretched the lead to 16-2 before the Pioneers started to climb back into the contest. Sacred Heart used a 7-0 run to draw within 24-18 following a Ryon Howard layup. LIU followed with four straight foul shots from junior Jaytornah Wisseh and senior Tyrone Mattison to push the margin back to 28-18 before Howard hit a jumper to make it 28-20 at the break.

Junior Kyle Johnson scored a game-high 19 points to lead four players in doublefigures Long Island’s 76-61 win over Bryant at the Wellness Center. LIU overcame a sluggish offensive performance by shooting 50 percent from the field after the break to pull away from the Bulldogs and improve to 7-7 on the season with its third straight win. The Blackbirds used a 13-0 run spanning both halves to take the lead for good. After a jumper by Bryant’s Nick Pontes tied it at 25-25, LIU scored the final six points of the half. Freshman Julian Boyd book-ended a three-pointer by sophomore David Hicks with three foul shots to give LIU a 31-25 halftime lead. Out of the intermission Johnson scored the first seven points to build a 38-25 lead for Long Island. A three-pointer from Peter Lambert briefly trimmed the Bulldogs’ deficit to 38-30, but that was as close as it got the rest of the way. A layup by Boyd gave LIU its largest lead of the night at 66-50 and the Blackbirds were able to weather some late triefectas from Bryant by converting at the foul line where junior Jaytornah Wisseh hit 8-of-10 in the final two minutes. Bryant gave the Blackbirds a fight in the early going, jumping out to a 17-12 lead. Cecil Gresham broke a tie with a three-pointer and Sam LeClerc followed with a layup to build the five-point advantage. The Bulldogs were ahead 23-19 following a Pontes bucket inside before LIU got four straight foul shots from Wisseh and senior Ron Manigault to tie the game. Johnson added nine rebounds, while Wisseh chipped in with 15 points and seven assists. Freshman Michael Culpo hit four three-pointers coming off the bench and finished with 12 points. Boyd led all players with 11 boards and collected his second double-double with 11 points. Manigault contributed five points, nine rebounds and four assists to help LIU win, despite shooting just 36.8 percent for the game. The Bulldogs were led by Lambert’s 18 points on six treys. Pontes added 10 points. Bryant shot 41.8 percent, but was hampered by a 6-of-15 night at the line and 14 turnovers.

Score tied - 6 times. Lead changed - 2 times.

A three-pointer from freshman Arnold Mayorga gave LIU its largest lead of the half with a three-pointer to make it 3416 at the 4:04 mark. The Blackbirds went into the intermission with a 37-22 halftime lead after hitting six three-pointers and holding Wagner to 28 percent shooting. Wagner got as close as 49-39 in the second half after Joey Mundweiler hit a pair of foul shots, but Long Island responded with an 8-1 run capped by a Hicks layup to make it 58-40.

Long Island had its four-game win streak snapped at Mount St. Mary’s, 80-54, in Knott Arena. The Blackbirds were held to 32.8 percent shooting by the top defensive team in the Northeast Conference. Freshmen Julian Boyd and Michael Culpo led LIU in scoring with 12 and 11 points, respectively. LIU (8-8, 4-2 NEC) kept it close in the early going and took a 21-19 lead on a layup by Boyd at the 6:57 mark, before Mount tied it for the eighth time of the half on a jumper by Shawn Atupem. That bucket sparked a 14-2 run to close the period as the Mountaineers took a 33-23 lead into halftime on a tip-in by Kelly Beidler. Mount St. Mary’s opened the game up in the second half with a 16-3 run during a six-minute stretch to pull away. Junior Aurimas Adomaitis pulled LIU within 40-29 on a layup with 17:09, but that was as close as it got the rest of the way. Mount rattled off 10 straight points from that point and eventually went up 56-32 following a pair of foul shots by Shawn Atupem. The Mountaineers pushed the lead to as much as 73-38, before Culpo came off the bench to hit a trio of three-pointers and a driving layup to make it 76-52. A jumper by freshman Lucas Faggiano with 0:19 to play capped the scoring. Long Island was unable to get untracked offensively and finished the night just 6of-17 from three-point range and was 53.3 percent from the foul line. LIU’s starting backcourt was held to 5-of-21 from the field and combined for 17 points. Senior Ron Manigault grabbed a game-high 11 points, but the Mountaineers finished with a 3735 edge on the glass. Will Holland came off the bench to score a game-high 16 points for Mount St. Mary’s and lead five players in double-figures. The Mount connected on 56.1 percent from the floor and was an even 50 percent from three-point range.

Long Island let a second half lead slip away at Monmouth at Boylan Gym and fell, 74-73. Monmouth’s Alex Nunner scored his team’s final 11 points, including the game-winning layup with seven seconds to play. Long Island (9-9, 5-3 NEC) took a 71-63 lead with 4:02 to play following a layup by junior Jaytornah Wisseh, but that was the Blackbirds’ final field goal of the evening. Nunner capped a run of seven straight points by converting a three-pointer on which he was fouled with 2:05 to play. He missed a chance to tie on the ensuing foul shot and LIU pushed the lead to 73-70 following a pair of foul shots by sophomore David Hicks. Monmouth came back with a pair of foul shots from Nunner with 1:30 left to make it 73-72. Following a missed Blackbirds shot, Yaniv Simpson collected the rebound and gave it off to Nunner who hit the winning layup at the other end. A last-second three-pointer by LIU was off the mark. The Blackbirds got off to a fast start as sophomore Kyle Johnson hit three straight three-pointers to spot LIU an 11-6 lead. Monmouth fought back to take a brief 1916 lead on a bucket by Travis Taylor, but a three-point play by Julian Boyd tied the game. LIU held Monmouth to one field goal over the next nine minutes and forged ahead 36-27. Senior Tyrone Mattison had a pair of treys in the spurt and Hicks capped it with a layup to give LIU its largest lead of the game. The Hawks hit two threepointers to close the half and make it 38-36 at halftime. Wisseh led all scorers with 22 points, while Johnson chipped in with 18 points. The Blackbirds shot 41.5 percent on the night, but were just 2-of-10 on three-pointers in the second half after draining seven in the first period. Nunner led four Hawks in double-figures with 14 points. Monmouth shot 57.7 percent after the break and hit 4-of-6 from the arc in the second half to hold on for the win.

Score tied - 3 times. Lead changed - 9 times.

A pair of buzzer beaters from sophomores David Hicks and Kyle Johnson helped Long Island defeat Fairleigh Dickinson, 91-88, in double overtime at the Wellness Center. Hicks hit a fall-away jumper at the end of regulation to send the game to the first overtime before Johnson’s three-pointer with a 0.1 left sent it to double overtime enroute to LIU winning its seventh straight home game. LIU (10-10, 6-3) trailed, 69-67, with seven seconds left after Alvin Mofunanya hit one-of-two foul shots. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh had a running layup that missed and the ball slipped through the outstretched arms of freshman Julian Boyd on a follow attempt and careened to Hicks. Falling away, Hicks managed to hoist a one-footed shot that banked in as the buzzer sounded to tie the game. In the first overtime, FDU jumped out to a 75-69 lead. The Blackbirds clawed back with six straight points led by Boyd who bookended the spurt with a pair of dunks. On the next possession, Fairleigh Dickinson ran the clock down until Sean Baptiste got a sliver of space deep on the wing and drained a three-pointer to make it 78-75. LIU raced up the court, this time Wisseh found Johnson open on the left wing for a game-tying threepointer with .1 left. In the final period, a layup by senior Ron Manigault broke an 8181 tie and Wisseh converted eight straight foul shots to lift LIU to a 9188 lead. Baptiste’s last-chance three at the buzzer fell short off the rim sealing the Blackbirds’ win. Wisseh led five Blackbirds in double-figures with a season-high 28 points. Johnson chipped in with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while Hicks finished with 14 points. Baptiste led FDU with 34 points and added 10 rebounds.

Long Island dropped a physical contest at Quinnipiac, 69-63, in the TD Banknorth Sports Center. The contest featured 48 fouls and a combined 64 foul shots between the teams, but a late 11-1 run by QU was the difference. Long Island (10-11, 6-4) freshman Julian Boyd scored nine straight at one point, including a dunk with 5:03 to play that put LIU ahead 54-52. Quinnipiac answered with three straight from Justin Rutty before Boyd hit one-of-two foul shots to tie the game at 55-55 with 3:11 remaining. The Bobcats ran off eight-straight points before a jumper by junior Jaytornah Wisseh cut the deficit to 65-62, but Rutty went 4-for-4 from the line down the stretch to seal the win. The Blackbirds looked poised to pull away early in the contest getting four quick points from junior Aurimas Adomaitis and jumping out to a 10-0 lead. A steal and layup from freshman Lucas Faggiano put LIU ahead 23-17, but Quinnipiac did not allow another field goal the rest of the half and used five straight points from Ed Zajac during an 11-3 spurt to take a 28-26 lead. Adomaitis hit a pair of foul shots to even the game, but the Bobcats scored the final three points to take a 31-28 lead at halftime. LIU was just 5-of-17 from the field in the first half, but went 18-of-22 from the line to stay close. LIU got six points from Adomaitis out of the break to forge ahead 36-34. Quinnpiac capped a 9-2 spurt on a jumper from James Feldeine to go ahead 4338. The Blackbirds got back-to-back buckets from Adomaitis and sophomore David Hicks before a three-pointer from Wisseh put the visitors ahead 46-45. The Bobcats built a two-point lead before Boyd and Feldeine accounted for the teams’ next six field goals, culminating in Boyd’s dunk for LIU’s last lead with 5:03 to play. Boyd led all scorers with a career-high 18 points, while Adomaitis added 15 for the Blackbirds. LIU was held to 35.2 percent shooting on the day and was just 2-of-12 from three-point range. Rutty led four Quinnipiac players in double-figures with 16 points and 14 rebounds. The Bobcats overcame 36.8 percent shooting by outrebounding LIU, 4235, and converting 14-of-20 foul shots in the second half. Long Island was just 5-of-9 from the line after halftime.

Long Island went toe-to-toe with Mount St. Mary’s and prevailed with a gritty 76-70 win at the Wellness Center. In a game that saw the teams go back-and-forth taking each others’ best shots, the Blackbirds managed to hold a lead for most of the night absorbing repeated strikes from the Mount in what amounted to a heavyweight boxing match on the hardwood. LIU had five players in double-figures, paced by freshman Julian Boyd with 18 points and extended its home win streak to eight games. Long Island (11-11, 7-4) broke a 49-49 tie on a layup by Boyd with 10:27 to play and quickly pushed the lead to 56-49 after a three-pointer from sophomore Kyle Johnson. That was the Blackbirds’ largest lead of the night and they didn’t allow the Mount to get closer than 58-56 following a Markus Mitchell layup. As was the case all night when Mount St. Mary’s appeared to be making a run, LIU responded with a push of its own. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh converted a layup and sparked a run of five straight to build the margin back to 63-56. The Blackbirds sealed the win from there, going 14-of-16 from the foul line in the final 5:05 and snapped the Mountaineers’ eight-game win streak in the process. Boyd matched a career-high in scoring, while adding seven rebounds and two blocked shots. Johnson finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Wisseh added 15. Freshman Lucas Faggiano scored a career-high 10 points with five assists. Sam Atupem led the Mount with 14 points, while Kelly Beidler added 13. Mount took a 26-25 lead before LIU managed to take a 30-26 lead into halftime. Long Island Blackbirds • 2009-10 Basketball • www.liuathletics.com

Long Island ran into a hot-shooting Sacred Heart squad, falling 101-72, at the William H. Pitt Center. Despite four Blackbirds scoring in double-figures, they trailed throughout the contest as the Pioneers drained 14 three-pointers on the afternoon. Sacred Heart jumped out to a 6-0 lead to open the day and never looked back. A three-pointer from sophomore David Hicks and a pair of foul shots from freshman Julian Boyd made it 18-10 in the early going, but that was the closest margin the rest of the day as SHU responded with three-pointers on the next four possessions, including three by Chauncey Hardy to push the lead to 30-11 at the 9:36 mark. Long Island (11-12, 7-5) missed eight straight shots at one point and fell further behind as Sacred Heart continued to rain three-pointers. The Pioneers hit 9-of-13 treys in the first half, including Corey Hassan’s as time expired to build a 48-27 halftime lead. A 17-5 spurt early in the second half for Sacred Heart effectively put the game out of reach. Hassan had three trifectas during the spurt and a layup by Shane Gibson gave SHU its largest lead of the day at 74-39. The Blackbirds were unable to get any closer than when sophomore Kyle Johnson made a driving layup to settle the final margin. Boyd was joined by junior Jaytornah Wisseh and freshman Lucas Faggiano with 11 points each, while Hicks added 10. The Blackbirds managed to shoot 85.7 percent from the line, but that was a lone bright spot offensively as they shot just 31 percent from the field and were outrebounded, 39-26. Hassan led all scorers with 25 points, while Hardy and Gibson added 16 points apiece. Sacred Heart finished the day shooting 65.0 percent from the field and 69.6 percent from three-point range.

Long Island used a balanced scoring effort and solid defensive game to pull away from Monmouth, 74-57, at the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. The Blackbirds used a 12-2 run to close the first half and junior Jaytornah Wisseh paced four double-figure scorers with 16 points to help LIU (12-12, 8-5) pick up its ninth straight home win. Monmouth got seven quick points from Dutch Gaitley and took an early 21-18 lead after Travis Taylor scored four straight for the visitors. LIU responded with eight straight points powered by freshman Julian Boyd to make it 26-21 at the 2:45 mark and the Blackbirds never trailed again. Following a pair of foul shots by the Hawks, LIU closed the period with four straight points from sophomore Kyle Johnson to build a 30-23 lead at halftime. LIU pushed the margin to 11 early in the second half after junior Aurimas Adomaitis converted back-to-back layups. A three-point play by Alex Nunner got Monmouth back within eight, but a trifecta from sophomore David Hicks followed by a layup from Adomaitis extended the margin to 54-36 with 9:02 to play and LIU cruised the rest of the way, holding Monmouth to just two field goals in the final seven minutes. Wisseh led all scorers, while Boyd added 15 points and a gamehigh eight rebounds off the bench. Johnson finished with 13 points and freshman Arnold Mayorga chipped in a career-high 10 points off the bench. Freshman Lucas Faggiano dished out a career-high seven assists. Monmouth was led by Will Campbell’s 15 points off the bench. The Hawks were hampered by 20 turnovers.

Long Island sprinted out of the gate against Wagner and cruised to a 74-48 win at the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. The Blackbirds opened the game with a 13-1 run and rode a stifling defensive effort to their 10th straight win. Junior Kyle Johnson led the way with 21 points, while freshman Julian Boyd added 18 points and 11 rebounds. Long Island (13-12, 9-5) built a 13-1 lead at the 12:27 mark as the Blackbirds took care of business on both ends of the floor to open the contest, forcing Wagner to miss its first 10 shots of the game, while senior Ron Manigault imposed his will on the glass collecting seven of his gamehigh 12 rebounds in the opening 9:05 and denying the Seahawks any second chances. Wagner managed to claw back into the contest and close within 19-13 , but LIU rattled off eight straight points to make it 27-13. A nine-point halftime deficit was as close as Wagner could get the rest of the way. The Blackbirds pulled away with a 19-4 run midway through the second period. After Wagner pulled within 37-28 LIU and Boyd responded with the decisive spurt. Boyd scored all 13 of his second half points in the run and hit the last four points in a row and gave LIU a 56-32 lead with 6:37 to play. A three-pointer by freshman Michael Culpo gave LIU its biggest lead of the day at 67-36. Long Island dominated the game defensively, holding Wagner to just 27.0 percent shooting on the day, including 2-of-14 from three-point range. The Blackbirds also controlled the glass, outrebounding Wagner, 58-32, and outscoring the Seahawks, 36-16 in the paint.

Seniors Ron Manigault and Tyrone Mattison set the tone early on and Long Island cruised to an 85-71 win over Saint Francis (Pa.) in the Wellness Center. Mattison came of the bench to pour in 11 points in the opening half to propel LIU (14-12, 10-5) to its 11th straight home win. LIU raced out to a 12-2 lead in the opening 3:58 and never looked back. The Red Flash got within 26-20 following a Kurt Hoffman layup at the 7:35 mark, but that was as close as they got the rest of the night. The Blackbirds responded with a 15-2 run to pull away. Freshman Julian Boyd scored seven straight at one point and a threepointer from junior Jaytornah Wisseh stretched the lead to 41-22. The Blackbirds took a 49-30 lead into halftime after shooting 62.1 percent in the opening half, including 7-of-14 from three-point range. The second half was much of the same as LIU opened with a 12-3 run to go ahead 61-33. The lead grew to as much as 72-41 with 10:24 to play after a layup by freshman Arnold Mayorga and the Red Flash got no closer than the final margin. Long Island had an efficient night on the offensive end, nailing 31-of54 shots with six players scoring in double-figures. Wisseh led the way with 19 points, six assists, three steals and just one turnover. Freshman Lucas Faggiano added 13 points, while sophomore Kyle Johnson scored 12 points. Mattison finished with 11 and sophomore David Hicks and Boyd added 10 points apiece. Saint Francis got a career-high 35 points from Devin Sweetney, who scored his 1,000th career point on the final bucket of the game. The Red Flash were hindered by 18 turnovers.

Long Island had its 11-game home win streak snapped by Quinnipiac, 78-73, at the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh scored a game-high 27 points and helped LIU (14-13, 10-6) cut the deficit to one with 18 seconds to play, but could get no closer. Quinnipiac broke a 61-61 tie with 4:34 to play on a three-pointer by Bryan Geffen and never trailed again. A pair of foul shots by sophomore David Hicks got LIU within one, but the Bobcats answered with a three-point play from Jeremy Baker to push the margin back to four. A three-pointer by Wisseh made it 67-66, but a layup by Justin Rutty and jumper from Geffen put the Blackbirds down five with 1:40 to play. A layup by freshman Lucas Faggiano and a three-point play from Wisseh book-ended a jumper from Baker to make it 73-71 with 31 seconds left. After a foul shot by Geffen, Wisseh answered with a pair of foul shots with 18 seconds to play to make it 74-73. LIU nearly stole the inbounds pass, but came up empty-handed and QU iced the game with four foul shots down the stretch. Wisseh hit 7-of-14 from the field and was 11-of-11 from the foul line to lead the way. Sophomore Kyle Johnson and junior Aurimas Adomaitis added 11 and 10 points, respectively. LIU built a 40-36 lead at halftime after shooting 56.0 percent in the opening period. A layup by senior Ron Manigault put the Blackbirds ahead, 12-10, at the 16:12 mark, but the Bobcats countered with a 12-0 run to take the lead. Rutty scored six points in the run, including the last four in a row to make it 22-12. Manigault ended the run with a short jumper to ignite an 11-0 run to give LIU a brief 23-22 lead. Wisseh scored his first points with 6:08 to play in the first half and ran off 10 straight for LIU to build a 36-31 lead that it would maintain into the break.

Long Island used a sharp-shooting performance to pick up a crucial conference road win at Fairleigh Dickinson, 85-67, in Stratis Arena. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh and sophomore Kyle Johnson scored 25 and 22 points, respectively. The win snapped a five-game road losing streak for LIU (15-13, 11-6). Fairleigh Dickinson jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead on a pair of three-pointers and a three-point play, before the Long Island offense kicked into gear. Wisseh led the charge and gave the Blackbirds their first lead of the night with a three-pointer to make it 14-12. LIU never trailed again and eventually extended the lead to 44-28 before the Knights rattled off seven straight just before the intermission. LIU shot a blistering 56.3 percent from the field in the first half, including 60.0 percent (6-of-10) from three-point range. Wisseh poured in 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting and was 4-of-4 from three-point range. The Blackbirds’ Johnson scored five straight to open the second half and freshman Julian Boyd tacked on a pair of foul shots to push the lead to 51-35. The Knights got within 55-43 after Kamil Svrdlik and Sam Fernley hit back-to-back buckets, but could get no closer. Junior Aurimas Adomaitis scored five straight at one point to push the lead to 65-46. A pair of foul shots by senior Tyrone Mattison put LIU ahead 85-65 before an FDU layup settled the final margin. Boyd rounded out the doublefigure scorers for LIU with 10 points and a team-high eight boards. The Blackbirds shot 52.6 percent as a team. Fernley led FDU with 17 points off the bench, while Alvin Mofunanya chipped in with 13 points.

Ron Manigault turned in a workmanlike performance in leading Long Island past St. Francis (N.Y.) in the Battle of Brooklyn, 66-54, \at Peter Aquilone Court. Manigault’s career-high 14 rebounds earned him the Lai-Lynch MVP award, while the Blackbirds’ bench chipped in with a season-high 41 points in a hard-fought win. Long Island (16-13, 12-6) built a 12-6 lead following three foul shots from junior Jaytornah Wisseh and a three-point play from Manigault at the 13:44 mark. St. Francis (N.Y.) closed within 14-13 on a Richard Clark three-pointer before the Blackbirds rattled off a 13-1 run to build a cushion. Sophomore David Hicks sparked the spurt with a layup and a three-pointer by freshman Michael Culpo gave LIU a 27-14. Culpo added a trifecta just before the halftime whistle to make it 33-21 at the break. St. Francis (N.Y.) opened the second half with a 10-3 spurt, powered by five points from Ricky Cadell. A layup by Justin Newton made it 36-31 before LIU answered with a 12-2 run of their own. Freshman Julian Boyd hit a jumper and capped it with a thunderous dunk to make it 48-33 with 8:38 to play. A Cadell foul shot helped cut the deficit to 54-48 with 3:27 to play, but freshman Lucas Faggiano answered with a three-pointer to put the game away. Faggiano scored 10 of LIU’s final 12 points and the Blackbirds defense allowed one field goal in the final 3:49 to pick up the grind-it-out win. Boyd led the way with 17 points off the bench to go with 11 rebounds, while Faggiano and Culpo chipped in with 12 and 10 points, respectively. LIU also held the Terriers, who averaged nine three-pointers, to just 3-of-19 from the arc. The win also helped Long Island clinch its first winning record since 1997-98 (21-11).

Long Island from a 16-point second half deficit and forced overtime at the buzzer, but Quinnipiac rallied in the extra period to win in the Northeast Conference men’s basketball quarterfinals, 86-78, at the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. A jumper by James Feldeine with 7:48 to play capped a 13-2 run to give Quinnipiac its largest lead of the night at 58-42 before Long Island began a furious comeback. The Blackbirds held the Bobcats to just four field goals the rest of regulation and were aided by QU’s 7-for-16 foul-shooting down the stretch. Sophomores Kyle Johnson and David Hicks started the LIU rally with threepointers on consecutive possessions to trim the LIU deficit to 60-48 with 6:39 to play. A layup by Justin Rutty was QU’s last field goal of regulation to make it 66-54 with 5:03 to play. The Blackbirds hit four straight field goals and a pair of foul shots by freshman Lucas Faggiano with 27 seconds to play got LIU with 71-70. Jeremy Baker followed with a foul shot for QU and after an LIU turnover, Louis Brookins hit 1-of-2 at the line to make it 73-70. The Blackbirds set up an inbounds play with 2.8 seconds, and freshman Julian Boyd got open at the top of the key and hit his first career three-pointer as time expired. In the extra period, Rutty hit a layup to open the scoring for the Bobcats and a pair of foul shots by Baker on the next possession made it 77-73. LIU clawed back to within 77-76 after Hicks rattled off three straight points, but Bryan Geffen answered with a three-pointer to put QU up four. A layup by Hicks cut the deficit to 81-78, but Feldeine and Baker combined to go 4-of-6 on foul shots the rest of the way to seal the win. Feldeine finished with a game-high 22 points, while Rutty added 18 points and 16 rebounds. Baker and Geffen added 13 and 12, respectively, for the Bobcats who shot 50.0 percent as a team and held a 47-38 advantage on the glass. Boyd led LIU with 17 points and nine rebounds, while Johnson added 16 points. Junior Jaytornah Wisseh scored 14 points and Hicks added 10. Senior Ron Manigaul added nine rebounds. Consecutive buckets from Wisseh, followed by a Johnson three-pointer and Boyd layup gave the Blackbirds a 16-10 lead with 12:18 to play in the first half. A threepointer from Faggiano stretched the lead to 19-12 before Quinnipiac went on an 18-2 run to help take a 38-32 lead into intermission.

Record Book 1928

1935-37

Herbert Raubenheimer inherited a dilapidated church gym, a student body of about 200 students and a handful of athletes when he became the first director of athletics when Long Island University opened its doors in 1927. When Raubenheimer resigned, an article in the Brooklyn Times on April 30, 1931, carried the headline, “Herbert Raubenheimer, Unaided, Put L.I.U. on Sports Map.” He began the basketball program in 1928 and single-handedly turned LIU into a athletics power with a non-stop routine of scheduling, outfitting, coaching and publicizing LIU’s five varsity squads, spearheading attention-getting events and ultimately attracting outstanding coaches and athletes.

Beginning with a 43-29 win over Catholic during the 1934-35 season, LIU began a 43-game win streak that lasted into the 1936-37 season. The Blackbirds posted an unbeaten season in 1935-36 going 25-0 and won the first seven games of the next year. The streak still stands today as the sixth longest in NCAA history.

1933 Jimmy Gladden becomes the first African-American to play basketball on the campus.

1942 1947

World War II

Former All-American Ossie Schectman is credited with scoring the first basket in NBA history while playing for the New York Knicks against the Toronto Huskies. Schechtman played for LIU from 193841 and won two NIT titles.

Simon Lobello, the leading scorer on LIU’s 1941 NIT Championship squad, is killed in action during World War II.

Larry Doby begins his collegiate career on a basketball scholarship at LIU. Doby later became the first AfricanAmerican to play baseball in the American League in 1947.

1951-57 No basketball team, due to New York City point-shaving scandals.

2009-10 Long Island University Basketball

After a six-year hiatus, the LIU basketball program is reinstated and goes 12-6. LIU wins its first two home games to extend its home court win streak to 142 games. The streak dated back to a win over Mount St. Mary’s during the 1934-35 season before ending with a 59-49 loss to Wittenberg.

1967 Former head coach Clair Bee is inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Bee led the Blackbirds to a pair of NIT titles and posted a 412-87 record in 21 seasons. His .826 winning percentage ranks as the highest in NCAA history.

1968 NIT Led by All-Americans Luther Green and Larry Newbold, the Blackbirds become the No. 1 ranked small college team in the country by the Associated Press. LIU won its first 20 games en route to a 22-2 record and a trip to the quarterfinals of the NIT, before falling, 62-60, to Notre Dame.

Following a six-year hiatus, the LIU men’s basketball program returned to action in 1957 through a program dubbed, “Operation Rebound.” The revitalization was carried out by Buck Lai, who was serving as director of athletics, as well as the school’s head baseball and basketball coach at that time. LIU and several other New York City schools were involved in a point-shaving scandal that rocked the basketball scene in the metropolitan area. The entire LIU athletics program was dropped during the six-year recovery period before Lai led the Blackbirds back into action for the 1957-58 campaign. Lai’s efforts earned him induction into the inaugural LIU Athletics Hall of Fame class in 2000.

1936 Several LIU players, including Jules Bender and Leo Merson, boycott participating in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Jules Bender was awarded the first Haggerty Award as the top player in New York City in 1936.

1939 NIT Champions The Blackbirds went 24-0 during the 1938-39 season and captured their first National Championship with a 44-32 win over previously unbeaten Loyola (Ill.) at the National Invitation Tournament.

1941 NIT Champions

On Thanksgiving Day, 1939, team captain Dolly King played end for the LIU football team against Catholic University at Ebbets Field and then played 40 minutes of basketball at Madison Square Garden that night.

Clair Bee led LIU to a 25-2 mark in 1940-41 and its second NIT Championship in three seasons. The Blackbirds defeated Ohio, 56-42, in the final.

Paul Lizzo

1972 Roy Rubin’s 11-year run as head coach at LIU ends. He re-establisthed the Blackbirds as a basketball power, leading them to three Tri-State League titles and three ECAC Division II titles. He also guided LIU to three NCAA College Division Tournaments where it captured two Eastern Regional crowns, in addition to appearing in two national NCAA Tournaments. Rubin’s greatest accomplishment may have been guiding the 1967-68 Blackbirds to the No. 1 small college ranking by the AP and a trip to the quarterfinals of the NIT.

Clair Bee led LIU to unbeaten seasons in 1935-36 and 193839, as well as NIT Championships in 1939 and 1941.

1981, 1984 NCAA Tournaments 1982 NIT Paul Lizzo coached the Blackibrds from 1975-95 and amassed 245 wins, the second-most in LIU history. He led LIU to the school’s first NCAA appearances in 1981 and 1984. As an assistant under Roy Rubin he also guided the 1981-82 squad to the NIT for the first time since the 1967-68 season. From 1980-84 he led the Blackbirds to a solid 78-41 record.

Long Island University completes construction on its state-of-the-art Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. The $45 million facility becomes home to the Blackbirds’ basketball teams and includes a 2,500-seat arena, an NCAA regulation pool and a modern fitness center and weight room. LIU defeats Sacred Heart, 63-60, in its first home game in the facility on Jan. 26.

Led by Charles Jones and Mike Campbell the Blackbirds post a 21-11 record and average 96.9 points per game. LIU earns an invitation to the NIT, marking the first back-to-back postseason trips since 1981-82. The Blackbirds go on to drop a narrow 9592 contest at Dayton.

Long Island Blackbirds • 2009-10 Basketball • www.liuathletics.com

Powered by the highest scoring offense in the country at 91.5 points per game, LIU wins the Northeast Conference and advances to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in school history. Long Island compiled a 21-9 record and opened the season with an upset of St. John’s. Led by Charles Jones, the nation’s leading scorer, the Blackbirds push fourth-seeded Villanova to the limit before falling 101-91.

Record Book Clair Francis Bee (1896-1983) Clair Bee coached basketball at Long Island University and Rider University for a total of 21 years, compiling a career record of 412-87. His .826 winning percentage is the highest of any coach in NCAA history. In 18 seasons at LIU he posted a 36080 mark, including undefeated seasons in 1935-36 (25-0) and 1938-39 (23-0). In seven postseason trips to the NIT he led the Blackbirds to championships in 1939 and 1941. The Grafton, W. Va., native remains the fastest coach in Division I history to reach 200 and 300 wins. A devoted teacher of the game, he also helped LIU post a 43-game winning streak, which was an NCAA record at the time. By the time he left coaching in the 1950’s, Bee had already begun writing the Chip Hilton series, which is considered the top sports fiction series ever written. In 1967, he was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., but his coaching influence remains intact today. He is credited with developing the 1-3-1 zone defense, the three-second rule and advocating the adoption of the NBA’s 24-second shot clock.

The Coach Clair Bee and Chip Hilton Awards were created by Chip Hilton Sports and the NCAA Foundation in 1996 as a way to honor the memory of Clair Bee, who had a great impact as a coach, administrator, innovator and teacher. The awards promote positive character in basketball, which were hallmarks of Bee and his teams. The Coach Clair Bee Award honors the active Division I men’s basketball coach who made the most significant positive contribution to his sport during the preceding year. The winner reflects the character and professional qualities of Bee, a Hall of Fame coach whom many consider the best technical basketball coach in history and a man who cared deeply about his players’ well-being. The criteria for the award involves actions that inspire, motivate, coach and educate their teams to achieve their fullest potential and demonstrate outstanding character. The Chip Hilton Award is given in recognition of a college player who meets the competitive and ethical standards that were the theme of the 24-book Chip Hilton series. Criteria for the award involves athletic skill, team spirit, personal discipline and integrity, respect of university and athletic authority, service to others, team leadership and accountability to family, coaches and the university. The selection committee features some of the most respected names in college basketball, including former coaches Dean Smith, Dave Gavitt, Pete Newill and Bobby Knight and TV commentators Billy Packer, Jay Bilas and Dick Vitale. The awards have honored coaches and players from across the basketball landscape such as Jim Phelan of Mount St. Mary’s and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, as well as Tim Duncan from Wake Forest and Hassan Booker of the U.S. Naval Academy.

The Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center opened in January 2006. The $45 million, 112,000 square foot structure was the largest building project in Long Island University’s history. The WRAC features a 2,500-seat basketball arena, an NCAA regulation-size swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center and weight room. In addition, two tennis courts and a running track sit atop the roof.

The facility also serves as a venue for community civic and social events. For the past two years, the WRAC has hosted the VH1 Celebrity Hip-Hop Basketball Classic.

Athletics Hall of Fame LIU Athletics Hall of Fame The Long Island University Athletics Hall of Fame was established in 2000. In total, 60 individuals and three teams have been enshrined, including the 1967-68 and 1935-36 squads and 23 individuals representing men’s basketball, the most represented team in the Hall. “This institution has one of the longest and proudest traditions of excellence that is unparalleled by most universities in the country,” director of athletics John Suarez noted in February of that year. “We believed it was time to recognize those who have given so much to Blackbirds athletics.” The members are chosen from a committee comprised of current and former administrators. The inductees receive a replica placque of the permanent version which is displayed on the Wall of Fame, located in Founders Hall, adjacent to the Arnold & Marie Schwartz Athletic Center. The 2009 LIU Athletics Hall of Fame class included three men’s

Three men’s basketball individuals were among the 2009 induction class: George basketball representatives and the 1935-36 team. Barbezat, Ruben Rodriguez and Colonel Bob Smith. Barbezat was a leader on the great Blackbirds teams of the late 1960’s and led the squad to the NCAA quarterfinals as a junior and to the NCAA Eastern Regional as a senior when he earned Tournament All-Star honors. Rodriguez enjoyed a standout career from 1972-75, becoming the only Blackbird to ever lead the team in both scoring and rebounding in three consecutive seasons. He finished his career ranked second in scoring and tied for first in career rebounds. Smith was a member of some of legendary head coach Clair Bee’s teams in the 1940’s and captained the 1946-47 NIT team. Bee called his hard-nosed leader one of LIU’s “all-time greats” and Smith later served 27 years in the military. The 1935-36 men’s basketball team was the first of Bee’s undefeated teams, posting a 25-0 record. The Blackbirds were unquestionably one of the nation’s top teams that year with just three games being decided by fewer than 10 points. The lineup featured Jules Bender, Ben Kramer and Irv Torgoff, who each earned the Haggerty Award as the top player in the metropolitan area in 1936, 1937 and 1939, respectively. Another member, Marius Russo, later pitched for the 1941 world champion New York Yankees. LIU was the favorite to represent the United States in the first Olympics basketball tournament in Berlin in that year. However, in a move that stunned the sports world, the Blackbirds – a team made up of both Jewish and non-Jewish players – decided to boycott the games because of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party’s anti-Jewish policies at the time.

2009-10 Long Island University Basketball

The Long Island men’s basketball team moved into its new home at the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center in 2006, leaving behind the historic confines of the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Athletic Center. The Schwartz Center was always a topic of conversation for visiting basketball teams, the press corps who covered the Blackbirds and the fans and alumni who cheered for LIU from the stands. The unique setting was home for the Blackbirds for over 42 years and was as much a part of the program’s history as the players who competed on the floor. The ornate and hallowed interior of the cozy 1,000-seat gymnasium was first home to the Brooklyn Paramount Theatre. The LIU’s first game in the Paramount was an 85-56 win over Paramount was a glittering showcase for the Pace on Nov. 30, 1963. stars of the stage, screen and Hollywood’s celluloid epics from 1928-1962. The original edifice remains, but has been modified to suit the athletic, recreational, educational and social needs of the students and staff of LIU’s Brooklyn Campus and the members of the surrounding community. The Paramount existed as a 4,200-seat theater for 35 years after openings its doors on Nov. 24, 1928. Until the lights on the 10-story sign along Flatbush Avenue extension dimmed in Aug. 1962 it housed shows of stage and screen featuring some of the biggest entertainment stars of the day. Such show biz immortals as Mae West, Bing Crosby, Eddie Cantor, Rudy Vallee, Little Richard, Fred Waring and Ginger Rogers appeared on the Paramount’s stage during its heyday. In the 1950’s, Alan Freed’s rock and roll shows whipped young fans into a frenzy. Another attraction of the Paramount is its original 1928 Wurlitzer pipe organ, which provided background music for the silent films shown on the screen and also played calming interludes between shows. The only other organ of its kind in New York City is in Radio City Music Hall and the Wurlitzer has attracted several prominent guest organists to LIU over the years, including Eddie Layton who played organ for the New York Yankees and Madison Square Garden. The organ still produces marvelous sounds which rock the rafters and concerts are still assembled by the Theatre Organ Society of New York, which helps maintain Eddie Layton, who was the organist the Wurlitzer. at Yankee Stadium, often played the The Paramount was converted to a gymnasium in 1963 and became the home of the Blackbirds basketball Wurlitzer at LIU basketball games. squads until early 2006. After the Paramount closed its doors, workmen transformed the orchestra section into the basketball court. The lights first shined on the court on Nov. 30, 1963 as the men’s squad recorded a memorable 85-56 victory over Pace College. A renovation and expansion of the gymnasium took place during the summer of 1975 when the Charles Hayden Foundation offered LIU a challenge grant. Through contributions from the Brooklyn business community, loyal alumni of the Brooklyn Campus, LIU’s student and a generous gift from its namesake, the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Fund for Education and Health Research, the renovations were made possible. In the ensuing years the gymnasium underwent elegant decorating and cosmetic revival for dinners to raise funds for scholarships at the University. Under the leadership of current Director of Athletics John Suarez, the Schwartz Center became the friendly confines for the men’s and women’s basketball teams at LIU. The unique interior features an overhanging scoreboard and accompanying message centers along the baseline corners. An adjacent lounge area, known as the Hall of Mirrors, also underwent renovations with the installation of new carpeting and polishing of the three-story wall mirrors. The upgrades made in the later years recaptured the opulence and splendor that made the Paramount a palace and feast for the eyes.

Blackbirds Spirit Why The Blackbirds? According to Dr. Elliott S.M. Gatner, an early historian of Long Island University, the first student-athletes representing the university in intercollegiate competition in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s were known as the Blue Devils. The teams earned the moniker because of the blue color of their uniforms. In LIU’s earliest days, the basketball players were called “Beemen,” after their legendary coach, Clair F. Bee, who is a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. However, sometime between February and October of 1935, the uniform color was changed to black and the Blue Devils became the Blackbirds. The story goes that a basketball reporter for the borough’s famed Brooklyn Eagle observed the LIU players in their black uniforms running up and down the court dribbling the basketball, reminded him of blackbirds back home, bobbing up and down as they fed in the cornfields. In filing his story on the outcome of the game, the writer who came to New York from the agrarian Midwest used the nickname “Blackbirds” and it has stuck ever since.

Northeast Conference History By providing opportunities for studentathletes to achieve their fullest potential both in athletic competition and in the classroom, the Northeast Conference has charted a course of steady growth since its inception in 1981. Now in its 29th year of service, the NEC’s Strategic Plan has established a blueprint for the future as the conference strives toward becoming an NCAA Division I leader for athletic success, academic achievement and integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, community partnership and national engagement. The NEC can trace its roots to 1981, when the league was first established as the men’s basketball-only ECAC-Metro Conference. A single-sport entity at its inception, even the league’s most ardent supporters during its formative years could not have envisioned the transformation into a 12-member, 22sport conference. The success story began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow, the NEC enjoys qualification or play-in access to 13 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). Though the NEC has featured various looks since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Robert Morris, St. Francis (N.Y.), Saint Francis (Pa.) and Wagner remain part of the current 12-school alignment. They are joined by Monmouth (admitted in 1985), Mount St. Mary’s (1989), Central Connecticut State (1997), Quinnipiac (1998) and Sacred Heart (1999). NEC expansion continues with the addition of Bryant University in 2012 as the league’s 12th member, which will give the league a six-state geographic footprint with access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. Men’s lacrosse will begin competition in 2009-10 and officially become the league’s 23rd sport in 2010-11.

Academic Success The Northeast Conference’s commitment to academic excellence translated into national recognition for both individual student-athletes and the league’s member institutions as a whole in 2008-09. NEC studentathletes graduated at an 83.8 percent rate - well above the national average of 78 percent according to NCAA Graduation Success Rate data. A total

Athletic Achievement Reinforcing its presence on a national stage, the Northeast Conference sent representatives to NCAA Championship events in 14 team sports in 2008-09, while NEC student-athletes individually qualified to compete for an NCAA title in men’s outdoor track & field. In its longstanding effort to increase student-athlete opportunities, the conference began sponsoring women’s bowling as a championship sport and had five of the league’s seven bowling members occupy a spot in the final regular season edition of the NTCA Top-20 Poll. No. 2 Fairleigh Dickinson defeated top-seeded Nebraska to advance to the semifinal round of the NCAA Championship. In football, Albany posted back-to-back undefeated seasons within league play and blanked Pioneer Football League champion Jacksonville, 28-0, in the third annual Gridiron Classic. Robert Morris men’s basketball captured its league-best sixth NEC title with a 48-46 last-second victory over Mount St. Mary’s before a nationwide ESPN2 television audience. On the heels of its perfect (18-0) run through the NEC women’s basketball schedule and second NEC Tournament title in four years, Sacred Heart gave third-seeded Ohio State all it could handle in NCAA first round play. Individually, 13 NEC student-athletes received All-America honors in their respective sports. Lock Haven’s Blair Wynne, the only three-time Player of the Year in NEC field hockey history, was named to the Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-America Second Team for the second consecutive season. NEC men’s soccer had three players acknowledged at season’s end. Quinnipiac’s Graciano Brito NSCAA/adidas All-America honors, and was joined by FDU junior forward Samson Malijani on the third team. Brito and Monmouth’s Angelo Amato were third team College Soccer News honorees. In addition to five football All-Americans, Monmouth’s John Nalbone became the latest NEC player to reach the NFL when he was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2009 Draft. Former Wagner pitcher Andrew Bailey, a 2006 draft pick, broke into the big leagues in 2009 and won a place in Oakland’s bullpen before earning a spot in the MLB All-Star Game. Five of the NEC’s finest were taken in the 2009 MLB Draft including Long Island’s James Jones (Mariners) in the fourth round. For the second straight year, Sacred Heart captured the Northeast Conference Commissioner’s Cup, recently renamed in honor of NEC Commissioner Brenda Weare, who passed away in June. LIU finished third overall - its best finish since 1987-88 - and was second on the women’s side. In The Community The NEC, its member institutions and student-athletes have made community involvement an important piece of its mission. In 2008-09, the NEC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee made its annual visit to the Cancer Recovery Foundation in Hershey, Pa., and conference members participated in “Think Pink” Day, a global effort organized by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association to assist in raising breast cancer awareness. The NEC also received $75,000 from the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Grant Program last season. Expanding its base deeper into local communities, the conference saw its women’s basketball attendance increase by 20 percent to establish a new league record. Evolving and Expanding In recent years, the Northeast Conference has taken aim at upgrading the caliber of the league’s championship sports and enhancing the opportunities and experiences for more than 4,000 student-athletes that compete in the conference. The conference has secured automatic access to the NCAA Division I Football Championship playoffs beginning in 2010 and new sport sponsorship in women’s bowling and men’s lacrosse will create further opportunities for NEC student-athletes. Set to embark on a number of branding, sportsmanship and community initiatives as part of the league’s Strategic Plan, the NEC and its member institutions are committed to the future growth of the conference.

New Media/Television More widely-recognized than ever, the NEC is providing a number of new ways in which its growing fan base can follow the action. In 2008-09 the conference launched its own YouTube channel, created NEC On The Run podcast segments, and added NEC Flashbacks, a video on-demand archive, to its website. More recently, the league dove into the social media arena by launching a Facebook page and offering periodic news updates via Twitter. Further enhancing its multimedia efforts, the league will begin webstreaming a women’s basketball game of the week in 2009-10, and raise the number of NEC championship webcasts from five to eight. To supplement one of the premier regional basketball television packages in the country, the conference produces a football package and a preseason basketball show entitled NEC Countdown to Tipoff. Over the last five years, the conference has televised nearly 150 events, as the league’s coverage area expanded to over 50 million homes. Along with flagship station MSG Network, other regional television partners include MSG Plus, FSN-Pittsburgh, MASN, Fox College Sports, Cox Cable and the Connecticut Sports Network. In 2009, ESPN broadcast the men’s basketball championship game for the 22nd straight year, while ESPNU carried the women’s championship game.

of 19 NEC teams garnered public recognition from the NCAA for their latest Academic Progress Rate scores. The league placed 42 representatives on ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District teams, five of whom went onto garner CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. On a conference-wide level, more than 2,000 student-athletes qualified for the NEC Academic Honor Roll, nearly a 25 percent increase from the previous year.

Dr. David Steinberg President Long Island University

Dr. David Steinberg, the ninth president of Long Island University, was appointed April 1, 1985. During his tenure, the University has experienced a renaissance becoming one of the largest and most comprehensive private universities in the United States. Under his leadership, the University’s endowment has increased nearly tenfold from $4.8 million to over $80 million, and its enrollment has risen from 19,000 to over 28,500. He has spearheaded a capital improvement plan, which has led to $400 million in investments in new construction and major renovations, resulting in vast improvements in the quality of study and life on each of the University’s campuses, especially, the C.W. Post and Brooklyn Campuses. New doctoral programs have been added and operating reserves have been created and increased. Born in New York City, Dr. Steinberg, is the son of the late Rabbi Milton Steinberg of Manhattan’s Park Avenue Synagogue. He was educated at Phillips Academy at Andover, Malvern College in England, and Harvard College, from which he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. After a Fulbright year at the University of the Philippines and a year at Columbia University on a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, he returned to Harvard, where he received both a master’s in East Asian Studies (1963) and a Ph.D. in History (1964). Dr. Steinberg also has received several honorary degrees. He began his teaching career in the Department of History at the University of Michigan, where he rose to the rank of full professor. In 1973, he joined the administration of Brandeis University as Executive Assistant to the President, becoming Vice President and University Secretary in 1977. The author of numerous books and articles on Southeast Asia and, in particular, Philippine history, Steinberg has taught, lectured and written about this important area of the world for four decades. His first book, “Philippine Collaboration in World War II,” won the University Press Award in 1969. “The Philippines: A Singular and a Plural Place,” now in its fourth edition, was described by U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines, Nicholas Platt, as “the best single-volume guide to understanding the Philippines, past and present.” Dr. Steinberg also edited and co-authored both editions of “In Search of Southeast Asia,” one of the major textbooks on the area. He recently collaborated with top scholars from around the world to co-author “The Emergence of Modern Southeast Asia,” a new and multifaceted history of this complex region. He is a co-author of “Religion and Religiosity in the Philippines and Indonesia: Essays on State, Society and Public Creeds,” 2005.

Gale Stevens Haynes Provost Long Island University Brooklyn Campus

As head of a doctoral-granting institution, Provost Haynes has achieved many of her dreams both as an educator and a parent. Today, she oversees one of the most diverse campuses in the country, with more than 11,000 students, managing an annual budget of over $160 million. Provost Haynes has led her institution through a remarkable renaissance: doubling student enrollment, creating new facilities, diversifying faculty, forging links with the community and transforming the Campus into a vibrant urban academic center. One of the Provost’s visions – a modern performing arts center for the students and the community – became a reality in 2005. The centerpiece of the new complex is the wood-paneled, 320-seat Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, where cutting-edge and traditional dance, music and theater performances regularly draw standing-room-only crowds from the Campus and the surrounding region. In 2006, under the Provost’s leadership, the Campus completed the biggest building project in its history: the $45 million Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. With state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facilities for students and other members of the Campus, the WRAC also features an outstanding, 2,500seat venue, open to the public for athletic and civic events. Its Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn ’32 Academic Nursing Center offers an extensive array of free preventive health services as well as a home for Brooklyn’s first Lupus outreach and education office, all in service to the entire community. A wider array of wellness services, including special cluster of intervention programs addressing asthma and lead poisoning in children, are planned to begin in 2007. In recent months, the Provost also has overseen a dramatic re-landscaping that has nearly tripled the green space for the central campus, with native plants and amenities that create a serene environment and enhance the “college experience” on this urban campus. Involved in higher education for three decades, Provost Haynes began her association with the Brooklyn Campus as a student, earning a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in counseling. She started her career as director of the Higher Education Opportunity Program. Upon completing her law degree at St. John’s University in 1983, she became Long Island University’s legal counsel before assuming the position of Provost in 1989. A Queens, N.Y., native, Provost Haynes grew up with a love of books and the spoken word, which she attributes to her West Indian heritage. She has passed on that love of learning to her three daughters – a doctor, a lawyer and an educator – whom she raised as a divorced single parent. “Parenting is a training ground for being a good CEO,” she maintains. Acting on her belief that a sound education is the key to realizing one’s dreams, Provost Haynes is dedicated to creating an urban campus whose varied pathways help students to realize theirs.

John Suarez Director of Athletics

John Suarez enters his 13th year as director of athletics at Long Island University, where he has overseen a dramatic growth of the school’s athletic department. During his tenure, Suarez has witnessed a sensational rise in the Blackbirds’ on-field success with 27 Northeast Conference championships and 22 NEC Coach of the Year awards. Under his guidance, Long Island captured its first-ever NEC Women’s Commissioner’s Cup in 2006 and posted its best overall finish in over 20 years with a third-place standing in 2008-09. Academic success has also been a priority in Suarez’s tenure. The department posted its highest cumulative grade-point average in over 20 years of record keeping with a 3.14 mark following the 2008-09 school year. It was the eighth consecutive year that the department’s cumulative GPA was above 3.0. In addition, LIU has been cited with two National Graduation Awards sponsored by USA Today and has had its programs regularly recognized by the NCAA for its Academic Progress Rate scores. Suarez has also spearheaded the department as it has made major improvements to its facilties. The 2006 opening of the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center culminated a decade of facility improvement at the Brooklyn Campus. The $45 million facility houses as 2,500-seat arena, an NCAA regulation-size swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The WRAC also features a wellness center that is geared toward a growing Brooklyn community. The Wellness Center came on the heels of other improvements that included the addition of lights to LIU Field in 1999, FieldTurf in 2001 and bleachers for softball and baseball in 2003. Suarez has also overseen upgrades to the weight room, locker rooms and scoreboards.

Suarez’s work is not done, as there are plans to further upgrade to the Blackbirds’ facilities, including an extensive redesign of LIU Field and the addition of a bubble atop the Wellness Center, covering the track and tennis courts.

With a keen eye toward the future, Suarez has been mindful of LIU’s past. He helped spearhead the creation of the LIU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2000 with 11 inaugural members, as well as the reestablishment of the Blackbird Club in 2002. Suarez has also continued to make his presence felt outside the downtown Brooklyn campus. He is currently on the national board of officers for the NCAA Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. He previously served on the NCAA Management Council from 2003-06 and was a member of the Division I Budget Committee from 2004-06. Prior to that, Suarez was on the NCAA Championship Cabinet from 2000-03 and served as chair of the NEC Athletic Directors Committee from 2000-02. Suarez arrived following a three-year stint as athletics director at Mercer County College in Trenton, N.J., which won two national championships and produced 11 regional titles in that span. Eighty percent of the athletes in his time attended four-year schools and every team produced a winning record during his last two years. Suarez earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing at Fairleigh Dickinson University, where he competed on the baseball team. He completed his master’s in sports management at East Stroudsburg University.

The campus’ athletic training staff is dedicated to the prevention, rehabilitation and recovery needs of over 200 student-athletes for the school’s 18 athletic teams.

It is fully equipped with the latest modalities and rehabilitative equipment to ensure the needs of each individual student-athlete are fully met.

The Wellness Center also houses resources and programs to promote the health of community residents. Cardiac rehabilitation, orthopedic therapy and asthma education services are available.

Academics

Nora Mavashev Academic Enhancement Coordinator

The balancing of academic achievement and athletic success is the primary concern of LIU’s Department of Athletics. The University’s student-athlete academic services are designed to help the department fulfill its commitment to all student-athletes in their pursuit of academic excellence. At LIU, there is a high priority placed on academic integrity, along with an opportunity to take advantage of extraordinary academic programs. The goal of the LIU Athletic Department is to give student-athletes an avenue to seek help, whether it be for tutorial assistance, scheduling of classes, personal or career development or to improve on their test-taking and time-management skills. In her sixth year, Nora Mavashev is responsible for monitoring academic progress of the student-athletes, ensuring they meet and exceed the University’s academic goals in compliance with NCAA and institutional standards. In conjunction with the director and senior associate director of athletics, Mavashev has formed close relationships with the academic advisement office and counseling center to assist the student-athlete in negotiating the demands of daily practices and games. The athletic department had an overall grade point average this past year of 3.14. During the 2008-09 academic year, 15 of the 18 teams posted cumulative averages above 3.00. There were 111 student-athletes (58 percent) who had a cumulative GPA above 3.00 and 32 student-athletes (17 percent) with GPAs above 3.50.
