From Here....

Belmont University sits on 75 historic acres two miles southwest of downtown Nashville, Tenn., a thriving metropolis known worldwide as Music City USA. In the mid-1800s, the land the university now occupies was known as the Belle Monte estate, the Victorian home of one of Tennessee's wealthiest couples, Joseph and Adelicia Acklen. Their antebellum mansion remains today, flanked by university buildings separated in age by more than a century. The first educational institution on the estate was the original Belmont College (1890-1913), offering elementary school through junior college education to young ladies. The school merged with Ward Seminary to become the prestigious Ward-Belmont School for Women (1913-1951), and in 1951, with the support of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, the school

became the coed Belmont College. Since becoming Belmont University in 1991, Belmont has grown not only in size but in quality. The mansions, gardens and statues of Belmont's historic past now sit side-by-side with state-of-the-art facilities equipped with the best technology and teachers to train today's students with the right tools for real world success. Belmont is among the fastest growing Christian universities in the nation with more than 5,900 students hailing from every state and 25 countries. Since 2000, enrollment has risen from just under 3,000 to more than 6,000 students for 2011-12, marking an increase of 99 percent. As enrollment steadily increases, so does the quality and diversity of each new class. Incoming 2010-11 freshmen represented 44 states and four foreign countries and


scored an average of 26 on the ACT. ACADEMICS Intent on being a leader among teaching universities, Belmont brings together the best of liberal arts and professional education in a Christian community of learning and service. Belmont was ranked seventh on the U.S. News & World Report listing of "Best Universities" in the South in the master's category for the 2010 edition of America's Best Colleges, making Belmont the highest ranked university in Tennessee in this category. In addition, Belmont was named a most cited "School to Watch," a high honor that indicates the strength of the university's reputation and innovations. Both Rolling Stone and Time magazines have hailed Belmont's Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business as one of the best music business programs in the country. The Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business has been named the best MBA program in the region, while Belmont's business administration and accounting programs have been accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency in that arena. Moreover, for the second year in a row, Belmont University's undergraduate School of Business achieved a Top 100 national ranking in BusinessWeek's annual report on the "The Best Undergrad B-Schools" in the U.S. In 2008, Belmont's Entrepreneurship major was even named National Model Undergraduate Program of the Year by the United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Located in the heart of Music City USA (Nashville, Tenn.), one of Belmont's consistent success stories is its worldrenowned music and music business programs. Several big names in the music industry started their careers at Belmont including "American Idol" finalist Melinda Doolittle, Christian recording artists Ginny Owens and Steven Curtis Chapman, and country

stars Trisha Yearwood, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley and Josh Turner. The annual "Christmas at Belmont" concert showcases performing ensembles from many different genres and has been broadcast nationwide on PBS five years in a row. The University recently added a songwriting major to its offerings, one of only a few such programs in the country. Students who have passions outside of the music industry also have a home at Belmont. From international business and accounting to education, sport administration, nursing, journalism and the humanities, Belmont provides avenues of learning for almost any interest. Recent program additions include interdisciplinary studies in Social Entrepreneurship and Asian Studies as well as a doctoral degree in Pharmacy, a program that is already gaining acclaim for its four-pillared approach to educating pharmacists for an ever-evolving health care environment. Belmont's also received attention for its innovative, year-long programming around the university's hosting of the 2008 Town Hall Presidential Debate. A variety of speaker series, visual and performing arts programs, and special events occurred on campus, all around the central theme "Wealth and Poverty." Belmont faculty members display a consistent commitment to excellence as well. Multiple professors have been awarded Fulbright awards, including a nursing professor who'll spend 2009-10 in Uganda as a guest lecturer while conducting research on how standards of nursing are adapted to austere conditions. Also, four Belmont professors from four different schools--Finance, Psychology, Spanish and Philosophy-have been chosen as Tennessee Professor of the Year by CASE/Carnegie Foundation since 2000. Belmont's boundaries extend beyond the Nashville campus through its Cool Springs campus and organized programs

such as the Washington Center program and music business' Belmont West in Los Angeles and Belmont East in New York City. Study-abroad programs place students in China, Costa Rica, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, South Africa and Spain, among other foreign nations. Also, Belmont serves as a regional site for the East-West Center for the Development of Asian Studies and is the host institution for the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad, a higher education consortium of 24 colleges and universities. CAMPUS GROWTH As Belmont's academic program offerings grow, so too does the physical campus. Recent additions include the 2003 opening of a $52 million entertainment and student life complex which houses the Curb Event Center arena, the Beaman Student Life Center and the Maddox Grand Atrium. In 2005, Belmont opened the first universitybased electronic financial trading center, which includes a digital stock ticker, data wall, TV monitors and workstations. The Gordon E. Inman Center opened in 2006, providing a state-of-the-art $22.5 million facility that houses Belmont's nursing, social work, occupational therapy and physical therapy programs and also serves as the temporary home of the School of Pharmacy. The School of Nursing was recognized by Laerdal Medical Corporation as a Center of Educational Excellence in part due to the advanced training the school's multiple simulation models offer to its students. In fall 2010, the university will open a second Health Sciences building adjacent to the first. The $30 million structure will be a model, 21st century academic facility, providing a venue where students and faculty resources can intersect to help meet the needs of the community and the world. The 90,000-square-foot building will emphasize integrated, "hands-on" experiential learning components through medical simulation spaces and

a licensed, state-of-the-art pharmacy. Belmont's intimate theater complex opened in 2007, featuring the 350-seat Bill and Carole Troutt proscenium theater, a Black Box theater and scene shop. The complex now plays host to numerous student productions as well as collaborative efforts with local professional ensembles, including the Nashville Children's Theatre, Actors Bridge Ensemble, Nashville Shakespeare Festival and the Nashville Ballet. In 2008, the university opened Maple Hall, a residence facility to accommodate 190 freshmen students. Next door to Maple is a new 103,000 square foot residence hall that will provide housing for an additional 400 freshmen in fall 2010, creating a unique living-learning community for first-year students in the heart of campus. ATHLETICS In addition to celebrating academic excellence and phenomenal growth, Belmont boasts 17 intercollegiate sports teams. The Belmont Bruins men's basketball team won its third consecutive Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament Championship in 2008 and made its third appearance in the NCAA National Tournament, losing a heartbreaking game 71-70 to perennial powerhouse Duke.

Both Belmont cross country teams and the volleyball team earned 2006 Atlantic Sun Conference titles, and the cross country teams repeated with 2007 Atlantic Sun Conference titles. In 2007, the teams also won both Coach of the Year awards, both individual titles, two Runner of the Year awards and a Freshman of the Year trophy. Belmont student-athletes excel in the classroom, too, as the university is the only school in league history to win the Atlantic Sun All-Academic Trophy nine times, most recently in 2012. The award is given annually to the conference school with the greatest percentage of student-athletes who earned a GPA of 3.0 or higher. A CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY OF LEARNING AND SERVICE In 2007, the university's formal relationship with the Tennessee Baptist Convention ended. In recent years, Belmont broadened its mission and can now include on its Board of Trustees members of all Christian denominations. In addition, Belmont joined the Lilly Fellows Program's National Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities, a collective that also includes Baylor University, Boston College, Villanova and Notre Dame, among others. Belmont is a student-focused, Christian community of learning and service where students hear from their first visit to campus until the day they graduate that they are created for a purpose in life. The Belmont faculty and staff dedicate themselves to preparing and empowering students to find their passion and use it to change the world. The university seeks to show every student how the love of Christ can compel them to lead lives of disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage and faith. In fact, Belmont students, faculty and staff are consistently challenged to look at the hardest circumstances and ask, "What can we do?" Students are encouraged to engage and transform the world, locally and globally, by participation in disaster relief trips to everywhere from the tsunami-stricken areas of Southeast Asia to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. Students serve locally at various relief and community organizations in Nashville throughout the year, and student-athletes take part annually in sports evangelism mission trips to South Africa, Ukraine and Brazil. Others have taken advantage of what they're learning at Belmont, incorporating their major studies into various service projects around the world, including working with orphans in India and assisting with physical therapy needs in Guatemala. With more than 75 areas of study, 20 master's programs and three doctoral degrees, there is no limit to the ways Belmont University can expand an individual's horizon.

Nashville is the capital of Tennessee and the entertainment, cultural, and commercial center of the Mid-South. With a metropolitan population of more than 1.5 million, Nashville is one of the fastest growing markets in the country. In the past decade alone, the population of the Nashville area has grown by nearly 30 percent. 'The Music City' can best be described as a pleasant mix of big city entertainment and "down home" friendliness. Nashville is located in the heart of our nation's bustling core. Major cities such as St. Louis, Cincinnati, Memphis, Atlanta, and Birmingham can all be reached by car within 3-5 hours. And when going from work to play, Nashville has it all. The city offers a multitude of sporting events, recreational opportunities, restaurants, parks, and shopping malls.

The sports landscape in Nashville has changed dramatically over the past decade with the introduction of major professional sports into the area. The arrival of the NFL's Tennessee Titans in 1998 brought instant credibility and excitement to the Mid-State. The Titans have won two division titles and one conference championship. Tennessee represented the AFC in Super Bowl XXXIV, playing the St. Louis Rams in one of the most memorable games in NFL history. With All Pro running back Chris Johnson and new head coach Mike Munchak, the future looks bright for the powder blue and white. Home for the Titans is LP Field, a 68,000 seat, state-of-the-art facility located on the east bank of the Cumberland River across from downtown. Aside from the NFL, LP Field also plays host to several major concerts and international sporting events. Not to be outdone, the Nashville Predators

have introduced the thrills of the National Hockey League to Middle Tennessee. In 2011, the Predators advanced to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a sixth time, defeating the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in the playoffs. The Preds skate in one of Nashville's downtown landmarks, Bridgestone Arena. The 18,000 seat Bridgestone Arena is a regular venue for touring groups and international artists, such as Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, and Coldplay. Another constant among Nashville professional sports over the past two decades has been the Nashville Sounds. The Sounds, who have called Music City home since 1978, compete in the Pacific Coast League as the Class AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. In recent years, players like Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Yovani Gallardo, and Ricky Weeks have used Nashville to jumpstart MLB stardom. The 2006 PCL

Champion Sounds play at Greer Stadium, located just minutes from downtown and the former longtime home of Belmont Baseball. Though the Nashville Superspeedway took a final bow in the summer of 2011, middle Tennessee remains a hotbed for NASCAR and IRL racing. Furthermore, Nashville has established itself as the ideal place to host a major sporting event. In the past decade alone, the city has hosted events such as the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournament, the SEC men's and women's basketball tournaments, numerous AAU national championships, international soccer matches, and the U.S. Swimming Championships. Recently, Nashville was awarded the 2014 NCAA Women's Final Four. Each year, Nashville hosts the highly-popular Country Music Marathon and the Music City

Bowl - which now pits teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and Southeastern Conferences each December at LP Field. Recreation is second-to-none in Nashville. Located in the picturesque hills of Middle Tennessee, Nashville boasts thousands of acres of public parks and offers a variety of outdoor activities like golf, boating, fishing, and hiking. Known as "Music City USA", Nashville is a city whose musical tastes range from country to rock to gospel. The city has several major concert venues and many big-name concert tours consider Nashville a "must-stop." The city also serves as home to the Grand Ole Opry, the nation's longest running weekly radio show, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Nashville has long been the mecca of the country music industry and is one of the top recording centers in the world. All of the music industry's

major recording labels have a presence in Music Row, just north of the Belmont campus. The nightlife in downtown Nashville offers something for everyone. Admist the savory sights and sounds of historic Second Avenue sit some of the most venerable hot spots anywhere. From Wildhorse Saloon and Hard Rock Cafe to Famous Dave's BBQ and The Pancake Pantry, it is not uncommon to bump into stars of stage and screen in Nashville. Nashville's cultural environment earned the city its other nickname, the "Athens of the South." Nashville is well known as a major education center. The area's 10 accredited fouryear and postgraduate institutions, including Belmont, are an integral part of the economic and cultural identity of the area. In addition to its educational institutions, the city offers numerous cultural and artistic venues. It is

home to nine performing arts facilities, including the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. TPAC is the home to a wide range of events, including Broadway musicals and performances by the Nashville Ballet, Nashville Opera, and the Nashville Symphony. The city is also home to seven art galleries, including the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The Frist Center, housed in the city's old main post office, presents a wide assortment of visual arts exhibitions. Nashville boasts 25 museums (including the Tennessee State Museum), numerous historic sites (like The Hermitage - home of President Andrew Jackson, an exact replica of the Parthenon, and the Natchez Trace Parkway), and an upgraded public library system that includes a new $50 million downtown library. Lastly, the newest addition to the downtown landscape, the Music City Center convention center, is set to open in February 2013 and will further cement Nashville's place as a desired interna-

tional meeting place. Simply put, Nashville is the cornerstone of the Mid-South economy. It has become a leader in printing and publishing, music and entertainment, finance and insurance, healthcare management, automobile and other related industry, manufacturing and tourism. Internationally known companies like AT&T, Bridgestone/Firestone, Caterpillar Financial, Dell, Dollar General, HCA, Louisiana Pacific, Nissan and Tractor Supply Co. have significant operations in the city. Sporting a mild climate with distinct changes in season - warm summers, colorful autumns, brisk winters, and beautiful springs - no two days are alike in Nashville.

Belmont Women’s Basketball Community Service Initiatives "As representatives of Belmont University, I believe that our program needs to take as much pride in the way that we serve others and our community as we do in the way that we perform in the classroom and on the basketball court. We consider it a privilege and an honor to be athletes at Belmont University. It is not a right accompanied by any sense of entitlement. We challenge our players to understand that with the privilege of representing Belmont comes a responsibility. Yet fulfilling that responsibility can be far more rewarding than any game ever won," Head Coach Brittney Ezell said. "It is our responsibility to give back to the University, the community and fans in such a way that our gratefulness for all that we have at Belmont is revealed through the joyfulness and selfless spirit that our players emanate while helping others. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." It is our challenge and responsibility to be great and I have no doubt that the legacy left by the members Belmont Women's Basketball program will be out of grace, gratitude and love," Ezell said.

Brittney EZELL

C o a c h ,

Belmont University Director of Athletics Mike Strickland announced Monday, Apr. 19, 2010 the hiring of Brittney Ezell as the third head women's basketball coach in program history. "We are delighted that Brittney has accepted our offer to lead Belmont women's basketball," Strickland said. "Brittney has distinguished herself both as a coach and a player, and we believe her enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to the student-athlete ideal are perfect fits at Belmont." In her first two years at Belmont, Ezell guided the Bruins through their final two seasons as a member of the Atlantic Sun, becoming the second BU coach to take their team to a conference tournament in their first season at the helm of the program. The team excelled on the court, rocketing from sixth place in the A-Sun in her first year at the helm to a thirdplace finish in 2011-12. That same season, the Bruins went on the lead the conference as well as stand as one of the best in the nation in both field-goal percentage defense (42nd), holding opponents to less than 36 percent from the floor for a second year and blocked shots (64th), averaging 4.3 stops per contest. Ezell took the helm of the Belmont program after spending the previous two seasons as head coach at the University of Montevallo. Inheriting a Falcon program that recorded one winning season in its previous 12 years, Ezell directed Montevallo to a 14-13 record in 2009-10. The Falcons also ranked second in the Peach Belt Conference in scoring defense.

Y e a r


Prior to Montevallo, Ezell spent three seasons as head coach at Okaloosa-Walton Junior College (now Northwest Florida State College) in Niceville, Fla. The Lady Raiders went 57-28 under Ezell's watch, which included an appearance in the 2006 NJCAA Regional Tournament. During her tenure, Ezell developed 14 AllPanhandle Conference performers, 12 of whom would go on to sign national letters of intent with NCAA Division I schools. The Lady Raiders also had 12 Academic AllConference honorees. Ezell's coaching career began at the University of Alabama, where she spent five years as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. She was credited with delivering back-to-back Top 15 ranked recruiting classes for the Tide, with four guards developing into All-SEC players. Ezell was a four-year starting point guard for the Tide, helping lead the team to a 95-34 record and four consecutive NCAA Division I "Sweet Sixteen" appearances from 1995-98. She ranks in the Top 20 in career scoring, with 1,022 points and is second all-time in career assists (620) and games started (114). She was a Second Team All-SEC selection in 1998 and was named to the SEC All-Tournament Team in 1996. In 1998, Ezell was a candidate for the Francis Pomeroy Naismith Award, given to the top point guard in the country and was named to the inaugural WBCA/Honda All-Star Game for the nation's top 20 players. She also was invited to the WNBA Rookie Combine in Chicago.

Coach Brittney Ezell answers some questions about BE ing a Bruin These have been three huge years of transition. How have you prepared yourself for each one? Each year has been such a unique challenge in itself. Our first year was a whirlwind. We were taking over a new program, inheriting a whole team, and beginning the process of changing the culture. Year two was a blending of players, as we brought in a huge recruiting class and then leaving the conference that we had recruited for in year one. And now, year three, as we enter a new conference, I feel like our culture is growing, our kids have bought in; but yet, I am not quite sure what to expect in the OVC. All three years here for us have been a new beginning of some sort. Who was your most pleasant surprise during fall workouts? Honestly, I could say that all of the kids have surprised me during fall workouts in some fashion. It was apparent to everyone that our kids spent a lot of time in the weight room and working on their skill sets over the summer. What challenges are you anticipating being in a new conference, despite not many of the opponents being new? Leagues take on an identity much like teams do. We are trying to figure out what this league is all about in terms of the environments that we will play in, the cities we will travel to, and obviously, with the opponents that we will have night in and night out. We will be adjusting to the style of play in the OVC as it appears to be a more physical league than the A-Sun and we will be making adjustments in our recruiting as well due to our conference footprint now being in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri. Talk about your new playing style and the addition of transfers. I wouldn’t say that our style is new but I will say

45 ~ Belmont Women’s Basketball 2012-13

that the depth on this year’s roster allows us a lot more versatility on both ends of the floor. The three transfer players (Jordyn Luffman, Jordan Coleman and Katherine Zander) and the two freshmen (Natalie Cohlmeyer and Frankie Joubran) have been incredible additions to our program, not just to the team. They are solid people, great students, possess incredible work ethics and are passionately competitive. You’ve talked about how 8 of your 13 players this year are freshmen or sophomores. How are you adjusting to the youth on the roster? We are practicing patience in practice. We are spending a lot of time teaching and communicating with the kids in a lot of different ways. I truly believe that confusion comes from lack of clear communication so our staff is making a concerted effort to ensure that we are all on the same page. It’s a challenge to have so many underclassmen but believe me, there is never a dull moment. You said you are looking to the senior leadership of Katie Brooks and Alyssa Visbeen. Who of the younger players is stepping up to eventually fill their shoes? Adrienne Tarrence, Molly Ernst, Katie Carroll and Torie Vaught have been extremely consistent this fall and will be difficult to keep out of the lineup. They have been very vocal and continue to lead by example daily. The work ethic of this team as a whole is fun to see. What did you like about Jordan Coleman, Jordyn Luffman, and Katherine Zander to add them to the roster? What’s not to like about those three kids! Jordyn Luffman arrived here last fall in need of a change. She is an athletically gifted guard who competes at a high level in everything she does. She has a non-stop motor and is whole heartedly,


Coach Brittney Ezell answers some questions about BE ing a Bruin driven to better herself and the team. Jordan Coleman brings a level of toughness and obvious intensity to the floor. Her experience at Vanderbilt and her willingness to be a mentor to some of our younger players has made an impact on our team already. Katherine Zander is a kid that we went after hard in the recruiting process during her senior year of high school. She came down to us and the University of Oklahoma. Unfortunately, she didn’t choose us the first time around but our coaching staff did a tremendous job of building a strong relationship with her so that when she decided to transfer from OU, she reached out to us. Katherine is one of the hardest working people I have ever been around. Not just players…people. At 6’4, she is a physically imposing presence that has the ability to play on the perimeter if called upon. She, Jordyn and Jordan are perfect fits for our program and we are honored that they chose Belmont. Do you have a team that you think has six players who on a given night could lead the team in scoring? I think we have a lot of players that are capable of leading us in scoring but I also think that I have an entire team that doesn’t care who scores as long as we play well. Our team loves to compete defensively so I’d like to see who our top six defenders will be instead of focusing on just the scoring.

How are you preparing for the size of the OVC with the absence of a player like Haley Nelson? We returned quite a bit of size with Blair Bryce, Alyssa Visbeen, Torie Vaught, Frankie Joubran and Jordan Coleman. We have good size at the guard position as well. We will miss Haley for more reasons than her size. Haley bought into what we were trying to do with the program and that made her wildly successful in her final two years. Our new post group will have the opportunity to establish their own identity this year and I know they are excited for the challenge.

Which of the freshmen came in most ready to play a game tomorrow? Frankie Joubran reported to campus as game ready. She has a unique skill set and the physique of an upper classman. She is physically gifted and powerful but has a refined finesse to her game as well. She can score in traffic and has a nose for the ball coming off the glass but yet she has 3 point range and the ability to put the ball on the floor. Natalie Cohlmeyer is in great shape and is learning the speed of the game at this level. It’s an adjustment period for her this fall but she has grown so much in the first three weeks of practice that we are all encouraged. She is one of the best perimeter shooters that we have and her ability to knock down shots will be big to help take pressure off Molly Ernst and Katie Carroll. You’ve worked on changing the program mindset by talking about the honor of being a Division I studentathlete and in particular being a Belmont student-athlete. Most of the ladies you’ve had over the past two years seemed to have embraced that. Does this group get what it means to play here? It is a process and a daily one at that. It is a privilege to be a college basketball player. Not a right. A lot of little girls will never have this opportunity and we want our players to have a spirit of gratitude for all that we are blessed to have at Belmont. I think that this group gets

it and understands exactly what we are building here in terms of our culture. We are not a culture of entitlement. We are a culture that places value on servant-leadership and embracing the “fam”. The chemistry of this group is palpable and just watching them interact with members of the community and with others on campus gives you a glimpse of how remarkable the young women in our program are. It truly is an honor to represent Belmont University. How much does success from last year in the Atlantic Sun affect the mentality of the group this year heading into the OVC? We finished 6th in the league in our first year. We jumped to 3rd last season and were one game away from 2nd place. I think that the kids now trust the process that we have set in motion and they are realizing that we will not be an overnight success. It takes work, time and patience. The kids know the reason that we schedule such a difficult non-conference schedule. They know why we are so demanding as a staff. The growth that our program has made in such a short period of time can only give them confidence and strengthen their desire to achieve more. I know it has done that for recruits and for our staff as well. Are you happy with how your nonconference schedule turned out in light of last season? Like any coach, I would have liked to have won more in the non-conference

Coach Brittney Ezell answers some questions about BE ing a Bruin but that’s just a small part of the puzzle for us. Last season, our non-conference schedule was brutal but I truly believe it made us so much better during the conference schedule. I realize that we will have to win our league in order to get an NCAA tournament bid. The possibility of an at-large bid from the OVC is relatively small as well, so why not challenge our team and stretch our program in the non-conference in order to put our players in the best position for success in the OVC. Could you coach here 20 years? Wow! 20 years? That’s a long time! But you know what, I’d love to! Hard to believe that we are going into year three but yeah, I could stay here. That would be great. I’d love to be able to emulate the longevity of Coach Byrd and the success that his program continues to enjoy. Being from Franklin and loving Nashville the way I do, why would I want to be somewhere else? This is home. You are now entering into your third season of B.E.ing a Bruin. Has the fan base been what you expected when you took the job and have you embraced the craziness? The fan base has grown so much since we arrived here. The camps have grown. Our recruiting reach has grown. You are right. It is craziness! The

number of people that read the blog, the followers on social media, Twitter, Facebook and the requests for appearances and interviews…very fun and very humbling at the same time. It’s so flattering to have people recognize me, our staff or our players. It’s great though and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to do all of these things for our program. I’m here to help our players and this program grow so it’s cool that people are responding in such a big way. We say it all the time in the office, “Why be anything else when you can BU!” I couldn’t agree more. It is a lot of fun B.E.ing A Bruin!

Jonathan Davis enters his fifth year on the sidelines for the Belmont women's basketball program and his third under Head Coach Brittney Ezell in 2012. He serves as an assistant coach responsible for a wide-ranging array of duties. In addition to his roles in player development and recruiting, Davis will coordinate team travel and oversee the team's budget. He serves as the program’s summer camp director. “Coach Davis is an extremely steady and calming influence on the staff. He is passionate about Belmont basketball but is able to temper his passion with a remarkable amount of patience in all that he does. Jonathan deeply cares for our program and the entire athletic department as a whole,” Ezell said. “He has plenty of game savvy and yet, he understands the game from a very technical standpoint. Jonathan is ridiculously meticulous and overly organized. His ability to analyze tendencies and statistics has proven invaluable to our scheduling, game preparation and scouting. I have counted on him since day one at Belmont and I will continue to rely on him for many years to come.” Davis joined the women's basketball program following an extended stint with Belmont's men's basketball program as an undergraduate, postgraduate, and volunteer assistant. He served six seasons in a variety of operationsrelated capacities for the Bruins - including three consecutive seasons in which the team won the Atlantic Sun conference tournament and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament. During his time with the men's program, the Bruins produced four 20win seasons and an overall record of 120-67. The Nashville native graduated from Belmont in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in business administration and in 2007 earned a master's degree in business administration from Belmont's Massey Graduate School of Business. Davis is the son, brother, or brother-in-law of five Belmont graduates, and resides in Nashville, where he enjoys playing board games and listening to live music.

Carley Kuhns joins the sidelines of the Belmont women's basketball program for her third season in 2012. She serves as the team's academic coordinator, as well as works with compliance, player development, and recruiting. “Coach Kuhns is one of the brightest young minds in the women’s game. Her ability to teach and communicate is remarkable for such a young coach,” Ezell said. “She relates to the players on their level and has such a gentle, yet demanding way of holding them accountable to the high standards of our program.” “She is an incredible mix of youthful exuberance and wisdom beyond her years. Carley is a student of the game and possesses a willingness to better herself daily. I have no doubt that Coach Kuhns has the makings of an incredible head coach but I hope to hold on to her for quite a while longer. I lean heavily on Carley during the season and she has never let me down.” Kuhns came to the Bruins after completing a two-year graduate assistantship at Valdosta State. While with the Lady Blazers, she assisted with various components of the program. Within one month of joining the Bruin staff, Kuhns was named to the prestigious Gulf South Conference AllDecade Second Team for her stellar career on the hardwood at Valdosta State. A former student-athlete at Valdosta State, Kuhns received numerous honors during her collegiate career, including becoming the first Lady Blazer since 2001 to be named a Kodak/State Farm WBCA Honorable Mention All-American. She also recorded 1,000 career points and was a two-time First Team All-Gulf South Conference selection. Kuhns, a two-time captain, also helped VSU earn a trip to the NCAA Division II Sweet Sixteen during her senior campaign with a 26-6 overall record. She led the team in scoring, averaging 10.4 points per game, and shot .373 percent from behind the three-point arc that season. Kuhns earned her Bachelor's in Physical Education from Valdosta State in 2008 and completed her Master's in Higher Education Leadership in 2010. A newlywed, the former Carley Peterson, was married in October 2011 to Matt Kuhns.

Brett Self begins his first year on the sidelines of the Belmont women's basketball program in 2012. Self comes to Belmont after a two-year stint at Wagner College. As a young, first time assistant, he served as recruiting coordinator, defensive coordinator and post development coach for two seasons. Prior to arriving at Wagner, Self worked as a graduate assistant at Auburn University during one of the most successful seasons in Auburn history, 2008-2009. During that time Auburn was the regular season SEC champion and coached by the SEC Coach of the Year, former Olympic head coach, Nell Fortner. The 08-09 Auburn Tiger team finished the season with a 30-4 record and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. “I am thrilled to have Coach Self join our family this season. He is energetic, exacting and eager to do anything that he can to help the growth of our program. Brett has a vast array of knowledge regarding the post position and skill development for all players. His competitive nature is contagious among the players and his ability to teach is very unique in someone his age,” Ezell said. “Brett is dedicated to our program and through that dedication, his grateful nature and humbleness have endeared him to everyone here at Belmont very quickly. I think we hit a home run with our new addition to the staff.” "I'm very excited to have the opportunity to become part of the Belmont family. I believe in the direction Coach Ezell is taking this program on and off the court,” Self said. “I have a great amount of respect for Coach Ezell. She is a proven winner as a player and a coach. There is a strong foundation already in place and I'm very fortunate to become a part of their winning vision. I'm looking forward to bringing my passion for the game to help accomplish great things here at Belmont." Self graduated from Auburn in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Business/Marketing before earning his Master’s in Adult Education. He played four years at Hooper Academy, helping his team win the Alabama Independent School Association (AISA) Championship in 2004. Self was also a nominee for the Jimmy Hitchcock Top Christian Athlete Award. The Pintlala, Ala., native is the son of Darrell and Barbara Self.

Belmont Women’s Basketball 2012-13 ~ 68


Now in its 65th 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 begins competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont gives 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. 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, 2009. 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. Over its 64 years, OVC teams have garnered national championships and bowl games in football, along with national team or individual titles in the sports of rifle, cross country, track and golf. 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 Conferencesponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors

of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 211 student-athletes honored with the award, including 32 over the last three years (2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12). 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, Belmont University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State U n i v e r s i t y, Te n n e s s e e Te c h n o l o g i c a l University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.

corner to keep it a five point game. A jumper by Alyssa Visbeen and trey by Daniel pulled the Bruins to within three, 32-29, with just over three minutes left before the break. Unfortunately, BU fell into another icy spell. Cacy Burtnett looked to break it with a three-point attempt but it bounced off the back of the rim and popped out, helping UM close the half with 9-0 run to take a 41-29 lead into the locker room.

BU opened the second half on fire, using a pair of blocks by Nelson to assist Cacy Burtnett in back-to-back jumpers. Nelson would add her own two to put the Bruins ahead, 29-25, with 17:40 on the clock. UTM suddenly got hot from the floor and put together an 11-2 run, going up, 38-32, to take their first lead since the 6:30 mark of the first half.

MARTIN, Tenn. - The Belmont women's basketball team was unable to overcome an icy second half performance from behind the arc and fell in its season opener on the road. The Bruins fell to future Ohio Valley Conference foe UT-Martin, 67-48. After a chilly start from the floor for both teams, BU was first to strike to open this 20th matchup between the programs behind a triple from Molly Ernst from the right side of the arc. BU stayed ahead and in control of the game for the next five minutes with buckets coming from Tristan Daniel and Haley Nelson. UT-Martin warmed up offensively, knotting the score twice by the 10:30 mark. The Skyhawks briefly gained the lead with a three-pointer by Jaclissa Haislip 30 seconds later but the Bruins continued to put in work on both ends of the floor. Belmont tied the game up at 16 with a jumper in the paint by Nelson with just under six and a half minutes remaining before the break. The team then exploded offensively, pulling ahead by a pair behind shots by Katie Brooks and the second half of a pair at the charity stripe by Daniel. By the two minute mark, BU was up by five, 23-18, after a Nelson lay-up. Jasmine Newsome hit a pair at the line with 53 seconds on the clock to cut Belmont's lead to three and those would be the last points before the

The ice remained around Belmont's rim into the early minutes of the second half until Tarrence hit the front of a pair at the stripe with 16:21 on the clock, snapping a nine minute point scoring absence from the board going back into the first half. Tarrence would go on to net BU's first field goal of the half three minutes later to bring Belmont to within 22, 54-32, but breaking the ice off the rim proved a challenge for BU.

Haley Nelson opened season with a double-double at UT Martin.

Despite regularly finding the bottom of the net in the mid-range, the Bruins found themselves trailing by 11 with nine and a half minutes left in regulation due to several baskets by the Skyhawks. The combination of BU foul trouble and an ice cold performance from behind the arc aided in UTM pulling away through the middle of the second stanza by as many as 16 points. The Skyhawks were able to maintain their double digit lead and never looked back, continuing to take advantage of BU's sudden frigidity. UT-Martin's biggest lead of the game, 19 points, came at the 2:39 mark. Belmont was able to trim the lead to 14 with a triple by Katie Carroll, the team's first of the second half but that would be as close as it would come.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After a strong back and forth battle in the first half, the Belmont women's basketball team was unable to break the ice from around its rim in the second half at in-state rival Memphis. The Bruins fell to the Tigers, 79-40. Memphis jumped out to an early 4-0 lead to open the first half before Adrienne Tarrence and Tristan Daniel found the bottom of the net on consecutive possessions to knot the score with 16:52 left on the clock. The teams began trading baskets on both ends until the Tigers briefly pulled away. A triple from the right corner by Amara Mayers made it a one-point game, 14-13. UM, fueled by a pair of steals, exploded on a 6-0 run to go up, 20-13 with just over 11 minutes left in the half. The Bruins slipped into an icy spell offensively and saw Memphis build its lead to as many as 10 before Nelson hit the second of two at the line to halt the more than four minute drought. After a timeout, BU came out hustling on both sides of the ball. Julianne Downs and Molly Ernst drained seven points to move Belmont to within five, 26-21, forcing a stunned Memphis bench to call timeout. The Tigers hit a three but Ernst answered with her own from the right

Adrienne Tarrence finished with a game-high five assists at Memphis.

UM continued to pile on the points and the Bruin bench called timeout with 10:28 left in second half, hoping the spark the team but they continued to struggle to find an offensive rhythm. Memphis built its largest lead of the contest, 39 points, with 6:05 remaining in regulation with the Bruins unable to find an answer. It would not be until the 5:38 mark that Belmont would see only its second and third field goals of the stanza, this time courtesy of Haley Nelson. Burtnett would follow with a lay-up about 40 seconds later to cut the Tigers' lead to 34, 73-39, but that would be as narrow as the scoring gap would become. Visbeen would be the last

AUBURN, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After a hot start, brief pauses in offensive output slowed the Belmont women's basketball team from recording its first win of the early season. The Bruins fell on the road at Auburn, 80-53. The Bruins opened the second ever meeting between the programs with back-to-back three pointers from Cacy Burtnett and Tristan Daniel in the first 90 seconds. Auburn was able to catch up and briefly take the lead before Julianne Downs buried her first triple of the season, putting Belmont on top, 9-7, by the 15:31 mark. BU built a sixpoint lead, 18-12, three minutes later after shots by Haley Nelson, Downs, Alyssa Visbeen , and Amara Mayers. Back-to-back treys by Camille Glymph knotted the game at 18 and sparked an 8-0 run for the Tigers. The Bruins saw a remnant of the icy rim from Memphis briefly reoccur as the team fell silent offensively for four minutes. Finally, Mayers battled through the paint for a lay-up at the 6:28 mark to get BU

After the break, the Bruins connected on three of four shots at the charity stripe before Molly Ernst knocked down her first trey of the game from the left side of the arc, moving BU to within 10, 41-31. After another Nelson jumper, Auburn put together an 8-0 run to pull away, 51-33, with just over five minutes into the half. A jumper by Visbeen closed the gap to 15 points, 51-36, but that would be as narrow as the scoring margin would become. BU slipped into another scoring drought, this one lasting three and a half minutes before another Visbeen bucket at the 10:28 mark got Belmont back on the board. Three minutes later, Tarrence completed BU's first three-point play of the season with 7:28 left on the clock, trimming Auburn's lead to 22, 68-46. Ninety seconds later, Ernst drained a triple for BU's last field-goal of the half, making it a 20-point differential between the teams, 72-52. One of two at the line by Visbeen with 1:10 remaining in regulation would be Belmont's final points of the contest as Auburn went on to take the game, 80-53.

The Hoosiers went on to take the contest, 63-52, handing the Bruins their fourth loss of the season. After the Hoosiers opened with back-to-back jumpers, the Bruins got hot offensively and pushed for an early 8-4 lead after triples by Cacy Burtnett and Julianne Downs, and a skyhook by Haley Nelson.

FT. MYERS, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Despite playing stifling defense through long stretches, the Belmont women's basketball team was unable to make up lost ground from spotty shooting early in the second half at Florida Gulf Coast . The Bruins fell to the Eagles, 54-34, and fall to 8-6 in conference action. Katie Brooks opened the first half on fire for the Bruins, netting the team's first six points with jumpers in the paint. Belmont leaned on its noteworthy defense to halt every Florida Gulf Coast attempt to score, forcing it to throw up five consecutive shots with less than eight seconds remaining on the shot clock. While the Eagles faltered, BU continued to push ahead and found itself up, 10-5, after back-to-back jumpers by Katie Carroll and Alyssa Visbeen. FGCU struggled

After the break, BU quickly added three more points courtesy of a free-throw by Tristan Daniel and a jumper in the paint by Haley Nelson but the Eagles exploded for nine points in the opening minutes to go up 31-16. Belmont finally emerged for its second scoring drought of the night, this one lasting almost six minutes, thanks to a jumper by Amara Mayers at the 11:24 mark. Cacy Burtnett and Adrienne Tarrence netted back-to-back jumpers to cut the FGCU lead to 17, 39-22, but that would be as close as the Bruins would come for the remainder of the night. The Eagles continued to pile on the points down the stretch but it would not be until the final 90 seconds of regulation that Belmont showed signs of life offensively. Tarrence completed a three-point play and Torie Vaught netted what would be the final layup of the contest with 47 seconds left. The late flurry only closed the gap to 20, 54-34, in favor for Florida Gulf Coast.

By the 14:49 mark, another Nelson tip-in and Ernst triple moved BU to within five, 30-25.

After the break, Upstate attempted to keep up the same fast and furious scoring pace from the first stanza but the Bruins continued to battle behind drives by Nelson.

MACON, Ga. – For the second time in as many years, the Belmont women's basketball team was denied advancing at the Atlantic Sun Tournament on a seemingly impossible shot in the final seconds of regulation. The third seeded Bruins were upset by No. 6 Jacksonville, 62-58, in a quarterfinal matchup. The Bruins opened the first stanza on a tear

Jacksonville hustled to knot the game twice over the next two and a half minutes but the Bruins pushed back and dug their heels in defensively.

However, JU took its first lead of the night, 57-56, after 3-of-4 shots at the free throw line. Jessica George banked in an impossible falling down three pointer to put JU ahead by four, 60-56, with 29 seconds left in regulation. Jade Cargill netted an insurance jumper with eight ticks remaining after two BU attempts rimmed out of the net.

T HE A LL -S TRIPLIN T EAM

Striplin Gymnasium served Belmont athletics from 1962-2001. The 2,500 seat arena also housed locker room facilities for baseball and both soccer programs. The Belmont women’s basketball team has found nearly unmatched success when playing in the 37-year-old facility. Coach Betty Wiseman established the home-court advantage as Belmont’s first coach. The team had four undefeated seasons during her tenure, including a twoyear 22 game winning streak at Striplin. During Coach Wiseman’s 16year-stint as head coach, Belmont hosted such teams as Western Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and North Carolina. In the fall of 1984, Tony Cross returned to his alma mater to begin a coaching career that has found nearly unparalled success at Belmont. In 17 seasons, BU never had a losing record inside the confines of Striplin winning at least 13 games ten times. During the 1990-91 season, the team reached uncharted territory, compiling a 20-0 record and using that season to catapult the team to a school record 28 home wins in a row between 1990-1992. One of the most telling statistics is the Bruins record at home since its first Division I schedule in 1997. Belmont has compiled a 45-7 record, including a streak of 27 in a row. The Bruins closed out Striplin Gym in grand fashion, by defeating archrival Lipscomb by a 78-62 score in the final game at Striplin.
