Welcome to

The Hoop

Once known around the Ohio Valley Conference as “the Temple of Doom” due to its large capacity and imposing atmosphere, the Hooper T. Eblen Center is the OVC’s second-largest arena and one of its most hostile. The building is named for longtime athletic administrator and coach Hooper Eblen, who served the university for 33 years and was instrumental in planning construction of both the Eblen Center and the home of the Golden Eagle football team, Tucker Stadium. The arena features 9,280 seats with cushioned theater-style seating throughout the lower level.

Eagle’s Nest First Class Facilities

Opened in 2009, the Eagle’s Nest offers 5,000 square feet of men’s and women’s basketball office space featuring floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the Eblen Center Court. The head coaches’ offices include an open air balcony and all offices are equipped with state-of-the-art video equipment. The facility also contains the Director’s Skybox and Entertaining Suite with capacity for 18 guests.

The Blizzard

Timeless Traditions

One of the most unique traditions in college basketball, the Blizzard began in 1985 when students brought “Tech Squares” — squares of toilet paper stocked in the dormitory bathrooms — and threw it into the air after the first successful shot made by the Golden Eagles against rival Middle Tennessee State. The annual tradition continued for many years, and it was always performed when MTSU visited The Hoop. When Tech’s biggest rivals left the OVC for the Sun Belt Conference, the tradition waned, but a significant movement to restore it has taken place on campus over the past several years. Last year, the Blizzard rained down on Tennessee State in a February game at Eblen Center.

at h l e t i c p e r f o rm a n c e Building a Better Athlete is the goal of Tech’s new Athletic Performance Center In the Spring, Tennessee Tech held Grand Opening for its brand new, state-of-the-art Athletic Performance Center for Golden Eagle student-athletes. The 25,000 square-foot facility will benefit every Golden Eagle student-athlete. Considered as the finest such facility in the Ohio Valley Conference, the APC features 10,000 square-feet for the new strength & conditioning room and 10,000 squarefeet for indoor practice facility. At an estimated cost of $2 million, the facility is located west of the softball complex close to Pine Ave. To help Tech’s student-athletes by providing support for the purchase of equipment, please contact Kevin Bostian, Associate Athletic Director for Development, either by phone (931-372-3929) or email him at: KBostian@tntech.du.

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation.

Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home. There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.

u One of the “Top Southern Public Universities” by U.S. News & World Report u One of the “Best Southeastern Universities” and “America’s Best College Values” by The Princeton Review u Among “America’s 100 Best College Buys” by Institutional Research and Evaluations, Inc. Where Quality Counts

For nearly 100 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students. Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 65,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality -- an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university’s vision is guided by the “T.E.C.H.” framework — technological leadership, enrollment growth, a caring campus, and high quality. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -- and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained university status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

Why we're the Golden Eagles

Campus Life

Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual. At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 14 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains -the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It's easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team's nicknames to "Golden Eagles" or "Mountaineers." On February 14, 1925, the nickname "Golden Eagles " was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were "Golden Eagles" and "Mountaineers," and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn't until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech

students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day's basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and a cartoon-style mascots in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.

Elite Events

iBN Sports Las Vegas Classic

Along with West Virginia, Baylor, Saint Mary’s, Missouri State, Bethune-Cookman, Texas A&M Corpus-Christi and Kennesaw State, Tennessee Tech will converge on the bright lights of Las Vegas this December for the iBN Sports Las Vegas Classic. The Golden Eagles begin play in the event with a Dec. 19 trip to Morgantown, W.V., to take on Bob Huggins and West Virginia in the on-campus round. Tech will then take on Kennesaw State on Dec. 22 in Las Vegas and either Texas A&M Corpus-Christi or BethuneCookman on Dec. 23.

Giving Back

“From those to whom much is given, much is expected.”

Prior to the 2010-11 season, the Golden Eagles played a foreign tour in the Dominican Republic, where they also worked closely with G.O. Ministries, a Christian non-profit organization which sponsors trips to numerous countries around the world with the goal of preparing participants to support the efforts of Christian leaders abroad. Tech players participated in the sports outreach program, spending a week playing against different teams from the Dominican Republic while also participating in various activities with G.O. Ministries, including serving hot meals to needy children, visiting and interacting with the local people, and working with missionaries to reach out to reach out to residents of Hispaniola through basketball. The trip marked the first time a Division I program had gone to the Dominican for a tour of this capacity.

Preview/ Players

STRONGER THAN EVER

2011-12: Season Outlook For a four-week stretch late in the 2010-11 season, Steve Payne caught a glimpse of what his team could be capable of accomplishing. Then an associate head coach under Mike Sutton, Payne, now the first-year head coach at Tennessee Tech, watched his squad become a more efficient offensive team and saw his star player developing directly in front of his eyes. The result was a seven-game win streak that encompassed most of the month of February and stretched into March as the Golden Eagles became a surprise entry in the Ohio Valley Conference championship game after upsetting the league’s regular-season champion, Murray State, in the tournament semifinals. Tech couldn’t get past eventual NCAA Tournament Cinderella Morehead State in the championship game, however, but went on to play in the postseason for the first time since 2002, bowing out in the first round of the CollegeInsider. com Tournament. This season, the Golden Eagles hope to build on that success, setting their sights even higher — an OVC title and NCAA Tournament berth. Tech returns four starters and 87 percent of its scoring from the 2010-11 season, while also debuting a first-year head coach who paid his dues as a longtime assistant at Tech and who carries the respect of the Cookeville community. “I certainly think the excitement level is pretty high,” says Payne, a native of Russell Springs, Ky., who served on Sutton’s staff for nine years. “We’ve got all these guys back and we did finish the year the way you’re supposed to. Hopefully we can carry that over and the guys will remember all the hard work that went into building toward that seven-game win streak and that championship run. They have to be hungry, they have to be humble, and they have to be ready to start a new season and leave last year behind.” The talent certainly seems to be on hand for the Golden Eagles to make a run at their first OVC regular-season title since 2005. The league crowned senior guard Kevin Murphy its Preseason Player of the Year, and the Golden Eagles return point guard and offensive engine Zac Swansey, who ranked seventh in NCAA Division I in assists last season, averaging 6.4 per game. Seven-foot-one center Liam McMorrow enters his second year at Tech and could be poised for a breakthrough season. The Golden Eagles have been tabbed as favorites to win the league by reputable national media outlets including the Sporting News and CBS Sports and were picked second in the OVC preseason poll of coaches and sports information directors. Through all of the excitement and anticipation, however, Payne wants his squad to simply focus on the process. “I think our goal every year is to win the OVC and play in the NCAA Tournament,” he says. “Even more than that, we really try to concern ourselves with the process. I’m a firm

believer that if the process is done the right way, the results will take care of themselves.” Though Payne’s promotion to head coach has offered continuity to the program, the staff as a whole is relatively new to Tech. Russ Willemsen, who has worked alongside Payne at Tech for the past six seasons, is back for a seventh year and, along with Payne, is the only holdover from last season’s staff. Payne hired longtime friend Happy Osborne, a national-championship-winning head coach at NAIA Georgetown College, to be his associate head coach in August. Former Western Kentucky standout David Boyden also fills an assistant role and Charles Newton, a senior on last year’s Tech team, returns to his alma mater as Director of Basketball

STRONGER THAN EVER

2011-12: Season Outlook Operations. Areas of particular focus for the staff in the preseason have been developing a low-post scoring game, cutting down on turnovers, improving shot selection, and becoming a better rebounding team. GUARDS Everything the Golden Eagles do offensively begins with Zac Swansey. A pure pass-first point guard, Swansey, a Georgia transfer, played his first season at Tech last year after sitting out 2009-10. The result was the OVC’s most productive offense and near-record-breaking assist numbers for Swansey. He dished out double-figure assists in six games and already ranks 19th all-time on Tech’s career assists list despite having played just one season. In addition to his uncanny ability to distribute the ball, Swansey can also score. He averaged just shy of 10 points per game as a junior and became known around the league for his clutch-shooting — he hit five game-winning shots over the course of the season, including the three-pointer that secured victory in the OVC semifinals. Swansey, a preseason All-OVC selection after being named to the conference’s All-Newcomer team last season, has battled a knee injury since spring, but has been performing near 100 percent in practice this fall. “It all starts with him,” Payne said of his point guard. “He seems to make everything better. Everything calms down when he’s on the floor. He doesn’t have to shoot a lot to make

an impact on the game. He’s just a guy that gets the ball where it needs to go.” Another senior in the backcourt, Zach Bailey is a point guard on defense of sorts for the Golden Eagles. The best defender on the team, Bailey has quietly put together a solid career at Tech and will be looked to as one of the team’s leaders this season. In addition to the immeasurable value Bailey provides on the defensive side of the ball, he also averaged eight points per game and was the best free throw shooter on the team in 2010-11. “He’s one of our toughest guys,” Payne says of Bailey. “He can play the one or the two, and he’s a clutch guy. He’ll make just enough shots to make you guard him, but when the game’s on the line, he makes them all.” A local favorite from up the road in Livingston, Tenn., Chase Dunn had a terrific year as a redshirt freshman a season ago, scoring double-figures in six games and averaging just shy of seven points per game. A reliable three-point shooter, he will see time at both point guard and two-guard and figures to continue to produce for the Golden Eagles. “Chase played on a 20-win team and had as good a freshman season as about any guy we’ve had here,” Payne said. “If he continues to develop and improve, he’s going to have a fantastic career for us.” At the two-guard, the Golden Eagles have arguably the best player in the OVC in preseason Player of the Year Kevin Murphy. A scoring machine throughout his career at Tech, Murphy led the team in scoring as a sophomore in 200910, averaging 15.3 points per game, and did it again last year, pouring in 17 points per contest to rank third in the OVC. What Payne and the coaching staff saw from Murphy down the stretch last season, however, made them wonder just how good a player he could become. “We became a better team late last year because Kevin became a more efficient player,” Payne said. “He became a guy that got his points on 10 shots rather than 25 shots. He became a better rebounder and a better defender. He has the tools to make a run at Player of the Year in our conference and he has the tools to make a run as a professional basketball player. The step he needs to take is to really become a team-first, efficient player, and he started to take that step last season.” An All-OVC First-Team selection in 2010-11, Murphy was dynamite in the OVC Tournament, averaging 24.3 points over three games and being named to the All-Tournament team. Another player who took his game to the next level last March was Jud Dillard, who averaged 13 points and 11 rebounds in the league tournament. Dillard, a junior, will start on the wing for Tech and though he didn’t receive the accolades of Murphy or Swansey, was one of the team’s top producers a season ago. He notched six double-doubles in 2010-11 and was Tech’s top rebounder. “He’s a guy we can really count on to rebound the

STRONGER THAN EVER

2011-12: Season Outlook

basketball, defend, and be an aggressive, smart offensive player,” Payne says. “He’s had some big games for us in his career and has really worked hard improving this summer. I’m looking for Jud Dillard to have an incredible junior season.” While Swansey, Bailey, Dunn, Murphy and Dillard figure to be the chief rotation players in Tech’s backcourt, the Golden Eagles also have plenty of talent waiting in the wings. Though only a true freshman, Lanerryl Johnson shows promise as the quickest player on Payne’s roster and could be the team’s point guard of the future. He’s still learning the position, but coaches have been impressed with his ability to develop and grow in the role thus far. John Sexton, a first-year player who played in 28 games as a freshman at William and Mary in 2007-08, will be a threat as a deadly three-point shooter coming off the bench, while another local product out of Cookeville, Mitchell Hill, figures to see time in the backcourt. FORWARDS The player who has most impressed Payne and the staff this fall has been redshirt freshman Javon McKay. At 6-foot-5, McKay is capable of playing at either the three or four-spot, but will likely see most of his time at the four this season due to the Golden Eagles’ crowded backcourt. Undersized for a power forward, McKay can use his explosive athleticism and quickness to get past bigger defenders and can also rebound and run the floor well.

“He’s probably our best athlete, our most explosive guy,” Payne says of McKay. “He’s a terrific offensive rebounder, good in transition, a good defender. He’s tough to defend as a four because big guys have a hard time staying in front of him, he’s so quick.” Dennis Ogbe showed flashes of a bright future in his freshman campaign a season ago. He started four games and scored double-figures in three, pouring in 18 points in a January game against Tennessee-Martin. The native of Munich, Germany, should get plenty of opportunities in the post this season to become a more consistent player. “He’s got to take a step up from last year,” Payne said. “He needs to improve his ballhandling, take care of the basketball and not turn it over. He’s already a good rebounder, a good defender and a good low-post scorer. He can be a good player for us.” At 7-foot-1, Liam McMorrow can change any game with his size alone. McMorrow played his first season at Tech in 2010-11 after transferring from Marquette. Coming from a high school background as a hockey and lacrosse player, he is still learning the game and learning to harness the tremendous physical attributes he brings to the table. Potentially the biggest X-factor on the Golden Eagle roster, McMorrow scored in double-figures twice in 2010-11 and also grabbed double-figure rebounds on two occasions. “I’ve been really pleased with Liam,” Payne said. “He’s had a much better fall. He’s really arrived with strong work ethic and he’s improving his low-post scoring every day because we’re making him catch the ball down there and make plays. He’s really running the floor hard, and I couldn’t ask any more of him. He could have a great year.” Terrell Barnes is the quickest post player on Tech’s roster and will see time at both the four and the five. He averaged 4.1 points and 4.9 rebounds last season, pulling down double-figure rebounds on four occasions. “We’ve got his weight off, and he’s scoring a little better,” Payne said. “He’s always been a good rebounder, passer and defender, and he’s finishing around the rim pretty good.” Bassey Inameti is another Golden Eagle who has shown the ability to play well in spurts and will see time in the post this season. The best shot-blocker on the team, Inameti needs to develop consistency in his senior season. “Bassey has shown flashes throughout his career,” Payne said. “We’re trying to get Bassey to be a guy who consistently plays to his ability every day.” A true freshman, Ryon Riggins has impressed coaches this fall and could also provide minutes in the frontcourt, while senior Riley Hunley will come off the bench at small forward. The Golden Eagles will be without the services of Matt Marseille, who tore his ACL in fall workouts and will miss the entirety of the season. Marseille started three games and averaged 3.4 points per contest in 2010-11, his first season at Tech after transferring from Centenary.

If loyalty in coaching had a face, it would be that of Tennessee Tech’s Steve Payne. For Payne, 42, who served as associate head coach of the Golden Eagles men’s basketball program for the past nine years under Mike Sutton, that loyalty paid off in March, when he was named Sutton’s successor in a joint press conference announcing the retirement of the veteran as well as the promotion of a man who already knows the Tennessee Tech program inside and out. “I want to thank coach Sutton for taking the chance on a junior college coach from Texas,” Payne said at his introductory announcement. “I have always been proud to represent Tennessee Tech and I am even more so today. When I came here, my goal was to be a Division I coach. After being here, that goal changed. I wanted to be the coach of Tennessee Tech University.” Payne came to Tech in 2002 as an assistant coach under Sutton and was the top assistant on the staff for nine years, rising to the post of associate head coach. He found himself in a much more demanding role when Sutton was stricken in 2005 with the a rare immune system disorder known as Guillain-Barre syndrome, a disease which sidelined him for the early portion of that season.

The team finished second at the NAIA National Tournament in 1999-00, and advanced to the Sweet 16 two other years. Payne also served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Northwestern State (La.) University where he helped NSU to its best conference finish in a decade. Before NSU, he was an assistant coach at Union University in Jackson, Tenn., where he was recruiting coordinator and helped lead the team to back-to-back 20-win seasons.

erations of the program, the Golden Eagles raced out to an 8-2 start with losses at Dayton and Cincinnati. Payne continued to handle a major portion of the coaching duties for the remainder of the year, helping to lead Tech to an 18-11 record and the semifinals of the OVC Tournament. During the 2010-11 season, Payne headed the Golden Eagles on two OVC road trips in Sutton’s absence and guided the team to three wins in four games. In his nine years, Payne has helped Tech post 149 wins and two of the program’s five 20-win seasons, hitting that mark in 2002-03 and again in 2010-11.

While his title changes, Payne sees the program going through a seamless transition. “I’ve always taken ownership of this program,” he says. “It’s different suggesting to the head coach what you think is best for the program, and being the one with the final say, but I feel I’m prepared for this. I’ve done this before. “We have great players, a great staff, and great administration, and I’m looking forward to continuing the upward trend of men’s basketball at Tennessee Tech.”

Payne said he was greatly influenced by Sutton during the past nine seasons. “Spending nine years around coach Sutton will be a huge benefit,” Payne said. “He’s a very knowledgeable coach. We’ve been through a lot and I’m ready to take the next challenge. I want to face what’s ahead of us. “I appreciate and will always owe a debt of gratitude to Mike Sutton for bringing me here. The lessons I’ve learned from him over the last nine years cannot be measured. He has taught me so many things, but the main thing is that a basketball program should be about relationships first. The relationships we have with each other, and with our community, are what make a basketball program special. “I couldn’t be more proud to be representing a university community and a man in coach Sutton who has handled a very tough situation with such class and poise.” Payne is a graduate of Russell County High School in Russell Springs, Ky., and earned his bachelor’s degree from Union College in Barbourville, Ky., in 1990. Payne and his wife, Kelli, have three children — sons Parker (12) and Paxton (10), and daughter Abigail (7).

Following the 2005-06 season, Payne was recognized for the role he played in Tech’s success while Sutton began his recovery. He was named OVC Coach of the Year by CollegeInsider.com and was listed as one of 15 finalists for the Hugh Durham Award honoring the mid-major coach of the year. CBSSportsline.com also named him OVC Coach of the Year. Payne began his career at Tech after serving as the head coach at Frank Phillips Junior College in Borger, Texas. Prior to taking the reins at Frank Phillips JC, Payne was associate head coach for four years at Georgetown (Ky.) Col-

COACHING HISTORY 1996-2011: Georgetown College (head coach) 1980-96: Georgetown College (assistant coach)

National champion NAIA head coach Happy Osborne joins the Tennessee Tech staff as associate head coach for the 2011-12 season. Osborne comes to Tech from Georgetown College in Georgetown, Ky., where he posted a 456-84 career record and led the Tigers to the 1998 national championship. At Tech, he will be involved in recruiting, coaching, developing players and cultivating and maintaining relationships in the community. Golden Eagle head coach Steve Payne served as an assistant on Osborne’s staff at Georgetown from 1996-2000, where the two became close friends. In the four years the pair coached together, Georgetown won 26, 37, 30 and 35 game for a total of 123 wins in four years. They played in two national championship games, winning one. A native of Lynch, Ky., Osborne began his tenure at Georgetown as an assistant coach in 1980, serving for 14 years before being promoted to the head position in 1996. In his 15 years as head coach, Osborne has been named the Mid-South Conference Coach of the Year six times, won nine of the last 12 MSC titles, and posted at least 25 wins each season. He holds the distinction of being the fastest coach at any college basketball level to post 100 career wins. He holds the same distinction among coaches who have won 400 games. Due in large part to his leadership, Georgetown is the all-time winningest men’s basketball program in NAIA and has made a record 20 consecutive NAIA Tournament appearances. More than 40 Georgetown players have gone on to professional careers overseas, many of whom played under Osborne. Most recently, Osborne led the Tigers to a 32-5 record and the Fab Four, the NAIA national semifinals, in 2010-11. He played high school basketball at Lynch High School, where his father was the school superintendent before going on to serve as a student assistant at both Pikeville College and Morehead State. He is married to Bobbi Osborne and the couple has one daughter.

David Boyden enters his first year as an assistant coach for the Golden Eagles, coming to Tech in June 2011 from his alma mater, Western Kentucky University, where he helped coach the Hilltoppers to an NCAA appearance and a Sun Belt Conference championship. Boyden will be involved in all facets of the program’s day-to-day operations as well as working primarily on the development of Golden Eagle post players. A former Sun Belt All-Conference performer for the Hilltoppers, Boyden returned to WKU with first-year head coach Ken McDonald - who was an assistant at WKU during Boyden’s playing career - in 2008. Boyden’s return to the Hill as part of the new staff helped result in a 25-win season, the Sun Belt Conference East Division and Tournament Championships, and a trip to the second round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. His career with Tech will not be Boyden’s first venture into the OVC, however, as he returned to WKU as a coach after serving as an assistant coach at OVC rival school, Eastern Kentucky, from 2005-08 under head coach Jeff Neubauer. Prior to his time spent at Eastern Kentucky and following his graduation from from WKU in 2003, Boyden joined former Hilltopper head coach Dennis Felton on the staff at Georgia. He was an administrative assistant during the 2003-04 season before ascending to director of basketball operations in 2004-05. As a player, Boyden lettered at WKU from 2000-03, helping the Toppers win 24 or more games each of his final three seasons as they claimed three straight Sun Belt Conference East Division and Tournament Championships and advancing to the NCAA Tournament for a school-record-tying three straight years. He started 123 of 125 contests played in, ranking second all-time in Hilltopper history in career starts. Logging 3,283 minutes of action, Boyden is sixth all-time at WKU. In four years, the Richmond, Va., native scored 1,167 points, which stands 27th on the career WKU list. Boyden was named to the Sun Belt All-Conference First-Team as a junior after averaging 11.3 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game, and was a Second-Team All-Conference selection his senior season after posting averages of 12.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Boyden was also chosen to the 2003 Sun Belt All-Tournament team after helping lead WKU to its thirdstraight title.

COACHING HISTORY 2011: Tennessee Tech (dir. of basketball operations)

Head coach Steve Payne announced Newton’s hiring as the program’s Director of Basketball Operations in September, bringing him back to his alma mater less than one year removed from his playing career. Newton, a native of Lexington, Ky., played two seasons for the Golden Eagles before graduating from Tech this past spring. He saw action in 15 games as a senior and averaged 2.3 points per outing, shooting 68.8 percent from the field — the highest field-goal percentage of any Golden Eagle. He converted three-pointers at a 55.6 percent clip, going 5-for-9 from long range. His team-high 23 points led Tech to a 106-44 win over Crowley’s Ridge on Dec. 30, 2010. During his tenure with the Golden Eagles, Newton was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court for his strong academics, and received the team’s John P. Hendrix Leadership Award. He also participated in a Reach USA foreign ministries program in which he traveled to China to play basketball with other players from the Lexington area. In high school, Newton led Lexington Catholic in steals and assists and was team captain. Newton comes from a rich family background in coaching and athletic administration — his grandfather, C.M. Newton played at Kentucky and served as head basketball coach at Alabama and Vanderbilt. He later became athletic director at Kentucky, where he hired Rick Pitino to lead the basketball program. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000. Newton’s father, Martin Newton, served as the Director of Basketball Operations at Kentucky and is now the athletic director at Samford.

Entering its 64th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. In May 2011 the Conference expanded for the second time in four years, adding Belmont University which will begin competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont will give the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. SIUE will begin regular season competition this season (2011-12) and be eligible for postseason the same year Belmont joins the league. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. Discussions were put on hold by World War II but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville merged to form the OVC. Tennessee Tech joined the OVC the following year. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially, breaking racial barriers to providde educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. Through the past 63 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football crowns, including both the 2007 and 2008 championships. Former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with nine. The first Division I-AA/FCS football playoff was held in 1978 with only four teams, which is the only year through present day that the OVC did not field a playoff representative. In the late 1970s, women’s athletics began somewhat of a rebirth on the national scene as the NCAA began sponsoring and marketing women’s sports. Recognizing the need to provide increased opportunities for female athletes, the OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volley-

ball added over the next four years. Those sports were initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 202 student-athletes honored with the award, including 35 over the last three years. Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership

role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior student-athlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sportspecific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin. Belmont University will become the league’s 12th member on July 1, 2012.

STRONGER THAN EVER

2010-11: A Season on the Brink... Promise. Confidence. Momentum. No, Tennessee Tech didn’t walk out of Municipal Auditorium with an Ohio Valley Conference title in hand last March, but the Golden Eagles did leave Nashville with all of the above. Coming in as a No. 4 seed, Tech blew past Tennessee-Martin in the first round, then upset regular-season champion Murray State in front of a national television audience in the semifinals, delivering the dagger on a Zac Swansey three-pointer with 24 seconds left that gave the Golden Eagles a five-point lead. In the championship game, Tech trailed Morehead State by as many as 15 with 7:10 left to play, but never gave up, rallying to cut the lead to 69-65 with 1:49 left as Kevin Murphy hit a three-pointer and Swansey stole the ball and scored on a layup to cap a 17-6 spurt. Morehead State, which went on to upset Louisville in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, hoisted the hardware that night, but the Golden Eagles believe that memorable March week in Nashville gave them the belief they’ll need to get right back to the title game in 2011-12. Murphy, Swansey and then-sophomore Jud Dillard were all named to the OVC All-Tournament team for their performances. Murphy scored 30 points against Morehead State and averaged 24.3 points per contest during the tournament. Swansey averaged 9.7 points and 7.3 assists per game, and notched his fifth double-figure assist game of the year during the tournament. Dillard averaged a double-double in the tournament, scoring 13.3 points and averaging 11.3 rebounds per outing. The Golden Eagles made their first postseason appearance since 2002, earning a bid to the CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT) and traveling to Western Michigan, where they fell to the Broncos 74-66. Prior to its OVC Tournament run, Tech finished the 2010-11 regular season on a torrid streak, claiming victory in its final five games to enter the league tournament as the hottest team in the conference. The streak ran to seven games before Morehead State finally brought it to an end. With an overall 20-12 record, the Golden Eagles recorded only their fifth 20-win season in program history, two of which fell under former head coach Mike Sutton and his staff. Tech finished with a final conference record of 12-6 and played in the league championship game for the first time since 2003. Overall, the Golden Eagles led the OVC in scoring offense with 2,396 points on the season, averaging 74.9 per game. The team’s field-goal percentage of 47.9 percent and its 799

defensive rebounds (25 per game) also took top honors among OVC schools. Tech finished second with a rebounding margin of plus-5.3 and in assists with 454 on the season (14.2 per game). Murphy was an AllOVC first team selection, leading the team in scoring and ranking third in the OVC with 17.0 points per game. He was also named first-team All-District by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Swansey, who played his first season with the Golden Eagles after transferring from Georgia, became known for his clutch shooting as he hit five game-winning shots on the season, and was named to the OVC All-Newcomer team. Swansey averaged 9.7 points per contest and led the OVC in assists (6.4 per game), steals (2.1 per game) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.8). He was also an NABC All-District selection.

WILSON

University of Maine 1991

v Director of Athletics

Mark Wilson’s first seven years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have been highlighted by vision, energy, and enthusiasm. Those factors have facilitated growth and excellence in all areas and have placed the focus on generating a better student-athlete experience. Wilson recently completed an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council, a position which gave the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 42, has led Athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first seven years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s studentathletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past four years Tech has completed several construction projects to athletic facilities, including resurfacing the outdoor tennis courts, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium. Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex in Eblen Center and in the spring held a Grand Opening on the new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus (see pages 2-3). Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary resources for Tech’s studentathletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and

regulations. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from Ohio University. Since his first day at Tech, Wilson has made rapid and steady progress. He began by restructuring the department and implemented plans for a better student-athlete experience. In addition, athletics launched a dynamic new website, gained NCAA certification and was found in complete compliance, created a far-reaching “WIN” program for academic success, opened an entertaining and popular Tailgate Park, and started plans for two capital projects. Before going to Ohio, Mark served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts. He also worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark has two daughters, Katey (16) and Meaghan (11).

Ian recently received his second degree from Tech, this one in Environmental Geology. Meagan is a senior Pre-Physical Therapy major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now

The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

Academic Support

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 200 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new students. Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

PUGH

v Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Ohio, 2000

Chip Pugh is in his fifth year as Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning head coach. He oversees the physical development of student-athletes in all 14 sports, providing support in building toward championships.

An alumnus of Ohio University, he was an offensive lineman on the football team while earning a bachelor’s degree in sport industry and a master’s degree in physical education. Pugh believes that the qualities that athletes can develop in strength and conditioning will not only aid in their athletic development, but will also help them build quality character components necessary for life. A native of Parkersburg, W. Va., he began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant strength and conditioning coach where he primarily worked with men’s and women’s track, men’s and

women’s swimming, and women’s soccer. He also assisted coach Ethan Reeve, currently the head strength and conditioning coach at Wake Forest, with football while at Ohio.

Strength and Conditioning Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso/trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core. Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than having body weight supported by a machine and forcing isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground-based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills. Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power.

By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential

Assistant Strength Coaches

Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism. Rich Froning Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, thus making it harder to “fold” under pressure. Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense The following are recommendations for athletes concerning days and times of strength trainig (including warmups): * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout * Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout

SCHABERT

v Assistant Athletics Director for Sports Information and Broadcasting St. Cloud State, 1977

Heading into his 30th year on the Tennessee Tech athletics staff, Rob Schabert is assistant athletics director for sports information and broadcasting. He joined the Tech staff on Sept. 8, 1982, and has been going full-speed ever since, working not only in publicizing Tech’s studentathletes and staff but also in promotions and marketing for the athletics department. In September 2008 he was inducted into the Hall of Distinction at Minnesota State University (Mankato). An active member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), he has attended the organization’s annual workshop in 29 of his 35 years in the profession. He has served on numerous CoSIDA committees, including Ethics, Academic All-America and Writing, and he currently serves on the Olympic Liaison Committee. In 2004, he was voted winner of the university’s Outstanding Professional Award, and in July 2005 was promoted to his current title. A tireless worker, Schabert has won dozens of national publications and writing awards, including “Best in the Nation” from USA Volleyball for his annual media guide six times. Schabert, 55, has established several programs within the department. He created the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll in 1987 and initiated the President’s Awards program in 1991. He also established the Woman of the Year/Man of the Year awards along with the Outstanding Male and Female Athlete awards. He is active in the TTU Sports Hall of Fame selection process and serves as the emcee of the annual Hall of Fame Dinner. Schabert has promoted the selection of numerous Tech Academic All-Americans and is extremely active in promoting both the academic and athletic accomplishments of Tech’s student-athletes. Another wing of his operation is the day-to-day production and operations of the vast Tech athletics web site, TTUsports.com. Rob and his staff also serve as the hosts to all media attending athletics events on campus. Over the past several years, many of the interns who have worked for Schabert have moved into full-time positions in the Sports Information profession at a wide variety of colleges and universities, including Appalachian State, UAB, Xavier, Idaho, Texas State and the University of New Mexico. A Minnesota native who learned the trade under the guidance of his father, Bob (a long-time Minnesota Sportswriter), Rob earned his bachelor’s degree in mass communications from St. Cloud (Minn.) State University in 1977, spent one year in the Minnesota Twins public relations office, and was SID for five years at Mankato State University. He was a charter member of the St. Cloud chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalist. In 2002, Rob was a volunteer with the Salt Lake Olympic Committee as a member of the Press Operations staff. Rob and his wife, Joan, have two grown children who are also in the public relation business -- Matt (Morehead State sports information) and Kristen (U.S. Army public affairs). They also have one grandson, Jacob.

Sports Information Assistants Nick Burns, 26, joined the Tennessee Tech Sports Information staff in July of 2010 and is in his second season on the staff. He is the primary contact for volleyball, women's basketball and baseball, and the secondary contact for tennis. A native of Bloomington, Minn., he is a 2007 graduate of Minnesota State University, Mankato. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications with a public relations emphasis. As an undergraduate, Burns was a reporter for the campus newspaper covering the men's and women's track and field and golf teams and writing feature stories. He also worked in the school’s athletic communications office helping with gameday services and writing. From 2007 to 2009, Burns was a graduate assistant in the MSU athletic communications office, serving as the primary contact for the volleyball and women's basketball teams for two seasons, and the softball, men's and women's track and field and tennis teams for one season. He produced publications, was the in-game statistician for all Maverick home events, updated the athletic website and filled in as guest host of the weekly Maverick Magazine radio show. During the 2008-09 women's basketball season, Burns served as the primary contact when the team won the Division II NCAA National Championship in San Antonio. He has also worked at the WCHA Final Five. Tommy Dillard, 25, joined the Tech Sports Information staff in July after serving as sports editor of the Murray Ledger & Times. Dillard served as the beat writer covering Murray State athletics and coordinated coverage of the university as well as several high schools. He was also responsible for page and section design, photography and web site maintenance. At Tech, Dillard will handle several aspects of media relations for the athletics department, including the production of publications, press releases and human interest articles. He will serve as the primary sports information contact for the soccer and men’s basketball teams, as well as the golf, cross country and track teams. Prior to being named the sports editor of the newspaper in Murray in 2010, Dillard served three years as assistant sports editor covering local high school athletics. He has also worked for the Associated Press, covering Murray State home athletic events as well as non-sports-related work. Dillard has earned numerous awards from the Kentucky Press Association. A native of Germantown, Tenn., Tommy graduated from Murray State in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. He married the former Elaine Kight on June 11. Brandon Goodwin, a 2010 graduate

of Tennessee Tech, has returned to his alma mater to work with the TTU Sports Information staff. He will work in new media, coordinating social media efforts, blogs, and radio and video broadcasts. A native of Lenoir City, Tenn., Goodwin, 23, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in communications and pre-law with an emphasis in sports media. During his tenure at TTU, Goodwin served as sports editor for The Oracle, Tech’s weekly student newspaper, where he covered each of Tech’s then 16 intercollegiate teams. He also held the title of assistant sports editor of The Eagle, the TTU yearbook, and was a disc jockey on WTTU 88.5 fm in Cookeville. Goodwin worked as an undergraduate student in the sports information department from 2007-2010 while attending Tech. His responsibilities ranged from writing and designing media guides to public address and radio broadcasts. He serves as one of the voices of the Golden Eagle Sports Network, providing sideline color and information during football broadcasts.

Dick and Donna Castle and their small TV crew began televising Tennessee Tech games on Cookeville’s upstart PBS station in 1980, and the station has been there covering the Golden Eagles ever since. The faces and voices have changed throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant — this year basketball fans in the Upper Cumberland will enjoy live telecasts of Golden Eagle games once again. The station continues the tradition under the direction of station General Manager Becky Magura and Producer Rick Wells.
