ryant has enjoyed tremendous growth and success in athletics over the past few years with quite fruitful results, the apex of which came in 2008-09 with its move up to the Division I ranks.

B

On the field, bountiful Bulldog teams and individuals have qualified for a number of NCAA Championships. In its final four years of Division II competition, 55 teams qualified for the postseason, including all 22 sports in the Bulldogs’ unprecedented 2007-08 campaign. Six teams captured Northeast-10 Conference titles in Bryant’s final year of Division II play, three of them winning both the regular season and the league tournament. In 2007-08, Bryant athletic teams made 16 NCAA Tournament appearances, featured seven AllAmerica picks, 15 all-region selections, 60 allconference accolades, two conference Coach of the Year honors, two tournament MVPs and one conference Player of the Year en route to its fourth Northeast-10 President’s Cup Trophy in the last five years. That year alone, the Bulldogs boasted 24 academic all-conference selections.

Athletics in 2008-09, and to amazing results. With each of Bryant’s 22 programs earning its first Division I win, the Bulldogs knocked off teams from the Big East, Ivy League, America East, Patriot League, ACC, Atlantic 10 and CAA en route to a truly impressive year, both on the field and off. Four teams would finish .500 or better, including football, baseball and men’s lacrosse, while golf took first place at the New England Championships. The men’s lacrosse program received votes in both national polls while 124 student-athletes were named to the Northeast Conference Academic Honor Roll. Bryant will continue DI competition during its fouryear reclassification period before becoming a full member of the NEC in 2012-13. Bryant offers 22 varsity sports, with its most recent addition to the Bulldog community coming in 2005 with the debut of men’s and women’s swimming. In addition to its intercollegiate sports programs, Bryant also offers 11 club sports teams and a popular intramural program throughout the academic year.

The University saw the men’s lacrosse team earn a national No. 1 ranking in its final year of Division II, while women’s soccer enjoyed its highest national ranking in program history, grabbing the No. 2 spot. Other nationally ranked teams in 2007-08 included baseball, field hockey and men’s tennis. The Bulldogs opened up a new era of Bryant

athletics Bryant University has produced 63 All-Americans over its Division II history.

Of those All-Americans, 28 of them were recognized as First Team selections.

Seven Bulldogs have earned Academic All-America honors.

Bryant has brought 44 regular-season conference titles back to campus.

Why is his name tupper? Tupper, the Bryant University bulldog mascot, was named after Earl Tupper, president and founder of the Tupperware Corporation. Mr. Tupper donated his 220acre Smithfield farm estate to what was then Bryant College on October 24, 1967. Tupper, who had originally planned to sell his estate, was so impressed with Bryant that he decided to donate the land instead, allowing Bryant to move from its original location on Providence’s East Side to its current Smithfield, R.I. residence. Originally nicknamed the Indians, Bryant became the Bulldogs in 1995. Out of appreciation for Earl Tupper and his generosity, when the school made the move, Tupper the Bulldog was born.

Bryant student-athletes have won eight ECAC Championships among seven different sports.

athletic

nder the leadership of President Ronald K. Machtley, Bryant University has evolved into one of the most progressive and leading institutions of higher learning in New England.

U

Hardly a president who remains behind the scenes when it comes to intercollegiate athletics, Machtley — a former collegiate student-athlete in his own right — has been an ardent supporter of Bulldog sports since becoming the University’s seventh president in 1996. Mr. Machtley’s “New Century Plan For Excellence” initiated the most significant enhancements to the Bryant campus and community since the university’s move to Smithfield, and athletics was no exception. His New Century Plan saw the Bulldogs’ varsity athletics program expand to 22 teams with the addition of football, field hockey, men’s and women’s lacrosse, and in 2005 men’s and women’s swimming. The addition of the new varsity programs brought about an overhaul of the university’s athletics facilities as well. These renovations are highlighted by the construction of Bulldog Stadium, which serves as the home of the Bryant football, soccer and lacrosse teams, as well as state-of-the-art fields for baseball, softball and field hockey. Changes to Bulldog athletics also inspired and supported the introduction of the Wellness Center, which provides Bryant with a health and fitness center that is second to none. Before assuming the presidency at Bryant in June of 1996, Mr. Machtley was best known as one of Rhode Island’s leading public servants. He served

as a member of the United States House of Representatives from 1988 to 1995 and was a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He was also the ranking Republican on the Small Business Committee’s Minority Enterprise, Finance and Urban Development Subcommittee and cofounder of the first House Working Group on Mental Health. As a reflection of the esteem in which his congressional colleagues held him, Mr. Machtley was elected president of his congressional class during each of his terms in the House. Upon completion of his term in Congress, Mr. Machtley served as a partner in the international telecommunications law firm Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer & Quinn in Washington, D.C. He is admitted to practicing law in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Florida. President Machtley is a 1970 graduate of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. He earned a juris doctorate from Suffolk University in 1978 and served on active duty in the United States Navy. Mr. Machtley also completed 25 years of service as a captain in the U.S. Naval Reserves. He was a member of the board of visitors of the United States Naval Academy from 1992 to 1995 and currently serves on the boards of several corporations, as well as on the boards of many civic and charitable organizations. President Machtley and his wife, Kati, have two children and reside on the Bryant campus with their two dogs, Sandy and Paddington. Their son, Todd, is an undergraduate at Muhlenberg College. Their daughter, Erin, graduated from Villanova University in 1998.

BILL SMITH Director of Athletics ill Smith came to Bryant University in August of 2006, after spending eight years at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. He joined the Iowa State athletic department as compliance director in 1998 before being promoted to associate athletic director in 2002 and then senior associate athletic director in 2005.

B

At Iowa State, Smith managed oversight responsibilities for compliance, academic services, sports medicine, athletic training and strength and conditioning. Under his leadership and direction, Iowa State successfully developed an Academic Plan for Student-Athlete Academic Services, resulting in ISU's 89 percent

student-athlete graduation rate. A total of 290 student-athletes have earned Big 12 Conference Honor Roll recognition since 2001. While serving as compliance coordinator at ISU, Smith was appointed chair of the Big 12 Conference compliance coordinators group. During that time, he was also a member of the University's steering committee for NCAA Certification. Prior to joining the Iowa State staff, Smith served as executive associate director for compliance and championships for the Patriot League for one year. In that role, he managed 19 conference events, was the conference's

primary liaison with all coaches’ groups and directed league-wide compliance education programs. A native of Auburn, NY, Smith graduated from Colgate University in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in political science. During his time at Colgate, Smith played both football and lacrosse (1985-89) and was awarded the Tom Dodge Award in 1989 for exemplifying outstanding effort, determination and performance. Smith and his wife, Maura, have four children: Molly, Liam, Daniel and Marin.

HEAD COACH TIM O’SHEA

HEAD COACH SECOND SEASON Career record » 128-116

Record at Bryant » 8-21

fter just one season with head coach Tim O’Shea at the helm of the Bryant University men’s basketball team, one thing is perfectly clear: the Bulldogs have, without a doubt, found the right coach to lead their program into Division I.

O'Shea, a former assistant at the University of Rhode Island and Boston College who spent seven years as the head coach at Ohio University before arriving at Bryant, guided the Bulldogs to eight victories in the school's first year of Division I competition (8-21 overall), setting the bar for what is to come under his tutelage. The Bulldogs earned their first victory of the season and the program’s new Division I history just three games into the 2008-09 schedule, defeating future Northeast Conference foe Quinnipiac University, 59-50, in New York City. From there, wins over Yale and future league foes Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Saint Francis (PA), Wagner, Central Connecticut and St. Francis (NY) soon followed, along with another win over the Bobcats and a 70-46 topping of NJIT. Now entering his second season with the Bulldogs, O’Shea will look to take full advantage of the experience his returners gained as well as a strong incoming recruiting class to continue to point the Bulldogs in the right direction as the program forges through its transition to full Division I status. O’Shea comes to Smithfield after serving seven seasons as the head coach at Ohio. In Athens, he was the architect of a Bobcat program that rose to greatness not just within the MAC but also on the national stage. In his last four seasons alone, O'Shea's Bobcats compiled 79 wins, captured a MAC title while being named college basketball's "It" team by ESPN.com. O’Shea was 120-95 during his tenure at Ohio, including taking wins over a number of notable college basketball powerhouses, including North Carolina, Virginia and the University of Maryland. In 2007-08, O’Shea’s last year with the Bobcats, Ohio posted a 20-13 record and reached the second round of the College Basketball Invitational (CBI). O'Shea's first season at Ohio was highlighted by victories over DePaul and a dominant UNC team in Chapel Hill on national television. In his second season at the helm, O'Shea led his Bobcats to a regular-season victory over Virginia and a spot in the MAC Tournament semifinals after the team posted a 12-6 conference record. Following the 2002-03 season, standout forward Brandon Hunter became the first Bobcat selected in the NBA draft since 1995, when

HEAD COACH TIM O’SHEA the Boston Celtics nabbed the Ohio big man in the second round. A year later, O'Shea faced the daunting task of replacing not just Hunter, but also leading sixth-man Sonny Johnson and threepoint sharpshooter Steve Esterkamp. The 200304 Bobcats slipped to a 10-20 record, but bounced back in 2004-05 for their memorable run to the NCAA tournament. The 2004-05 Bobcats captured significant nonconference victories against San Francisco, Butler and Detroit, and then won 11 of their last 15 contests to head into the conference tournament on a high note. O'Shea kept his troops on task as they turned that momentum into a fourgame sweep through the MAC Tournament. The team’s run ended in the first round of the NCAA tournament when it drew fourth-seeded Florida, but the ’Cats didn't go down without a fight, nearly overcoming a 20-point second-half deficit before eventually falling, 67-62. Ohio opened 2005-06 with the moniker of collegiate hoops' "It" team and compiled 19 victories before falling to eventual league champion Kent State in the MAC Tournament semifinals. The Bobcats registered impressive victories over

Cincinnati, Maryland, Marist, URI and St. Joseph's in the following two seasons (2006-08), nearly upsetting Kentucky and Louisville as well. The 2007-08 season saw Ohio return to the postseason, as the Bobcats advanced to the second round of the inaugural College Basketball Invitational after earning a victory over Brown in the opening contest. The players O'Shea coached at Ohio have proven to become winners in the classroom, as well as on the court. Of the 25 student-athletes who completed their eligibility under O'Shea during their senior seasons, 24 of them graduated. O’Shea’s commitment to excellence on and off the floor is a product of the lessons he learned on the bench at several other Division I institutions, his head coaching career beginning after extensive experience as an assistant in the Ivy League, the Atlantic 10 and the Big East. His coaching career began as a graduate assistant at the University of Rhode Island and Boston College, and he used that experience in his first full-time appointment, coming at Yale in 1986. O’Shea spent the next two seasons as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs before making his next stop up the coaching ladder — returning to URI for a spot on Al Skinner's staff. O’Shea spent nine seasons at URI, playing a key role in the Rams’ bids into two NCAA tournaments and a pair of NIT berths. During his time at URI, O'Shea’s most notable recruit came in the form of current NBA star Cuttino Mobely.

In the spring of 1997, O'Shea returned to his alma mater alongside Skinner. In four seasons at Boston College, he helped build the Eagles into the Big East regular-season and tournament champions in 2000-01, coaching current Bryant assistant coach Dwayne Pina along the way. BC posted a 27-5 record that season, earning a No. 3 seed for the NCAA East Regional and finishing the year with a No. 9 ranking in the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) just two years after being ranked 246th. But O'Shea was no stranger to success in the Eagles locker room. After earning All-America accolades at Wayland (Mass.) High School, O'Shea played for some of the most successful squads in Boston College history. The Eagles won two Big East regular-season titles and earned four postseason tournament berths during his career, advancing twice to the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16 and once to the Elite Eight. O'Shea graduated from Boston College in 1984 with a bachelor's degree in communication and a minor in English. He went on to add a master's degree in counseling/psychology from BC two years later. Named head coach at a campus press conference on June 23, 2008, O'Shea becomes the seventh Bryant men’s basketball coach in school history and only the third since 1989-90. He and his wife, Elizabeth, reside in Newport, R.I. with their daughter, Madeleine (11). Bryant University, located in Smithfield, R.I., is in its second year of transition into Division I. Bryant will become an full member of the Northeast Conference in 2012-13.


HEAD COACH TIM O’SHEA

THE WORD ON O’SHEA

“Tim has a very fine mind for the game, a great eye for talent and his players truly enjoy playing for him.” — Al Skinner, Boston College head coach "Tim O'Shea is a proven leader with the highest standard of personal integrity. In our three years working together, I sincerely appreciated his unwavering commitment to the full development of our student-athletes." — Kirby Hocutt, University of Miami Athletic Director

“I don’t know anyone who loves Rhode Island more than Tim O’Shea. That means no one else will show Bryant University the kind of passion that it deserves. O’Shea loves the state and wants to make Bryant a destination job. I’m sure there wasn’t a more perfect fit among the coaching changes last spring. He has the perfect demeanor to get through the transition from provisional to full fledged Division I member. Bryant should be pleased that they found someone who wants to make Rhode Island his home and the Bulldogs his program for many years to come.’’ — Andy Katz, ESPN.com "Tim O'Shea is an outstanding strategist who combines a thorough understanding of the game of basketball with a great passion for coaching. Bryant made a great choice in naming Tim its head coach." — Gene DiFilippo, Boston College Athletic Director

“Bryant University made a brilliant selection in the hiring of Tim O’Shea as its first Division I head coach. Having been a high school and AAU coach, college player and college coach, Tim will leave no stone unturned when it comes to recruiting and player development at Bryant. He is a very good X’s and O’s coach when you look at what he was able to do at Ohio in one of the most underrated conferences in the nation. He has deep New England roots going back to the BABC.” — Leo Papile, Assistant Executive Director of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics

He came to Smithfield, R.I. after spending a year as an assistant coach at nearby Rhode Island College under coach Jack Perry. During Pina's first season at Rhode Island College, the Anchormen posted a 20-9 record and finished the year as co-champions of the Little East Conference. RIC excelled throughout the postseason, making it all the way to the championship game of the ECAC New England Division III tournament. As an undergrad at Boston College, Pina joined the men's basketball team as a walk-on prior to the 1997-98 season and earned an athletic scholarship midway through that year. In 1998-99, he started all 27 games for the Eagles, averaging 4.5 assists per contest to rank seventh in the Big East. Pina was named the team’s Defensive MVP in 1998 and earned the honor of Top Playmaker in 1999. Pina played in 78 games for Boston College during his career, making 38 starts as a guard.

In addition to his accomplishments on the court, Pina also served his local community in Chestnut Hill.

Since joining the Bryant University coaching staff, Pina has helped the Bulldogs to three-straight NCAA Division II tournaments, including two regional championship game appearances, before the Black and Gold made the move to Division I, where he helped guide them to the program’s first DI win. During Bryant’s inaugural Division I season, Pina played a key role in scouting as well as working with the team's perimeter players. A 2001 graduate of Boston College, Pina earned a bachelor's degree in communication. He currently resides in New Bedford, Mass.

2009-10 SEASON OUTLOOK year ago, the Bryant University men’s basketball team entered a new era of competition, joining the highest ranks of the NCAA community as the Bulldogs debuted at the Division I level for the first time.

A

Under the guidance of a new head coach who inherited a senior-dominant, experience-laden team, the Bulldogs handled the significant jump in stride, finishing a solid 8-21 in the face of bigger, stronger and faster opposition. Now, as second-year head coach Tim O’Shea and the Bryant University men’s basketball team prepare for their second go-around in Division I play, one thing is for sure — the Bulldogs will look a little different than they did a year ago. “We’re excited about the upcoming season and our fans should see a noticeable difference on the floor in terms of athleticism and size,”said O’Shea. “That will help us compete at a higher level within the Division I model.” Three starters are back from last year’s squad which posted a 6-8 record against teams from the Northeast Conference, Bryant’s future home. But the Bulldogs return significant experience beyond that starting trio with a five-man senior class in 2009-10, a class which will be looked on to lead one of the most talented freshman classes the Bryant program has ever seen.

He is a smart player with a frame that seems to surpass his 6-foot-9 height and his impeccable timing makes him the team’s top shot blocker (25 blocks for UMass as a freshman in 2007-08). A strong inside presense on the defensive end, Lo will call upon his experience in the Atlantic 10 to increase the skill level of the Bryant frontcourt.

Kondratyev and McMath will also vie for starting spots as rookies in 200910, and both will contribute immediately, adding height and skill that will help plug the rebounding gap. A strong physical presense, Kondratyev has a great touch around the rim with either hand, giving him the

height to Bryant’s roster. The 7-foot center is the tallest player on the team and will be expected to learn from both Lo and Pontes in 2009-10 as he continues to advance his skills.

Long and athletic, McMath is a highenergy player who runs the floor extremely well. On defense, the Australia-born forward can defend nearly any position, from centers to small or power forwards. Another player with 3-point range in his arsenal, McMath can make shots from anywhere on the court.

Junior walk-on Michael Chroney (Nashua, N.H.) also returns to the frontcourt this year, and while he is undersized for a forward, he is one of the team’s most athletic players, which could open opportunities for him to plug holes defensively.

“Our freshman frontcourt of Vlad and Clay both have outstanding futures here at Bryant,” said O’Shea. “They’re strong, they’re skilled, they know how to play and they seem to have great work ethic. The future for both is very very bright.”

Senior Nick Pontes (New Bedford, Mass.) will give the team a physical presence down low in the paint. The 6-foot-6, 230-pound center was second on the team last year with 7.7 points per game and averaged 2.6 rebounds per outing in 29 appearances, mostly as the sixth-man off the bench. Although he is undersized for a center, Pontes is an extremely skilled and savvy offensive player with a variety

“If we’re making the comparison to a year ago, we’ve really transformed our frontcourt size to match up with pretty much anybody on our schedule,” said O’Shea. “We are so much bigger up front, it should make a significant difference to our overall game, as well as in filling our rebounding and shot blocking holes.

And if we can rebound better, it puts us in a better position to win games. “If you combine all our returning experience with the likes of Papa Lo, and then further augment that group with these five recruited freshmen, who will all have an impact this season, we look to make significant strides forward in 2009-10.”

THE NORTHEAST CONFERENCE Providing Opportunities. Building Futures. y providing opportunities for student-athletes to achieve their fullest potential both in athletic competition and in the classroom, the Northeast Conference (NEC) has charted a course of steady growth since its inception in 1981. Now in its 29th year of service, the NEC’s new Strategic Plan has established a blueprint for the future as the Conference strives toward becoming an NCAA Division I leader for athletic success, academic achievement and integrity, sportsmanship, equity and diversity, community partnership and national engagement.

B

The NEC can trace its roots back to 1981, when the league was first established as the men’s basketball-only ECAC-Metro Conference. A single-sport entity at its inception, even the league’s most ardent supporters during its formative years could not have envisioned a transformation into a burgeoning 12member, 22-sport conference. The remarkable success story of the conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the next 20 years, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 13 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). Though the NEC has featured various looks since its inception, charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Robert Morris, St. Francis (NY), Saint Francis (PA) and Wagner remain part of the current 12-school alignment. They are joined by Monmouth (admitted in 1985), Mount St. Mary’s (1989), Central Connecticut State (1997), Quinnipiac (1998) and Sacred Heart (1999). NEC expansion continues with the addition of Bryant University in 2012 as the league’s 12th member, which will give the league a six-state geographic footprint with access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s

outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. Men’s lacrosse will begin competition this season and officially become the league’s 23rd sport in 2010-11.

Academic Success The Northeast Conference’s commitment to academic excellence translated into national recognition for both individual student-athletes and the league’s member institutions as a whole. NEC student-athletes graduated at an 83.8 percent rate, which is well above the national average of 78 percent according to NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) data. Likewise, a total of 19 NEC teams garnered public recognition from the NCAA for their latest Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores. The league placed 42 representatives on ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District teams, five of whom went onto garner Academic All-America Honors. The first team honorees were Fairleigh Dickinson’s Matt Maher (baseball), who was a third team recipient in 2008, and Wagner’s Andrea Lazzari (softball). Saint Francis (PA)’s Erin Reifsteck (field hockey, second team), Monmouth’s Ben Evenden (tennis, third team) and CCSU’s Yan Klukowski (soccer, third team) were also honored for their academic and athletic performance. Evenden was a nominee for the prestigious Rhodes Scholar Award, while Wagner swimmer Alexandra Tomlinson was awarded an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. On a conference-wide level, more than 2,000 student-athletes qualified for the NEC Academic Honor Roll, nearly a 25 percent increase from the previous year. Saint Francis (PA) posted the highest GPA in the conference to claim the NEC Institutional Academic Award for the first time.

Athletic Success Reinforcing its presence on a national stage, the Northeast Conference sent representatives to NCAA Championship events in 14 different team sports while NEC student-athletes individually qualified to compete for an NCAA title in men’s outdoor track & field. In its longstanding effort to increase student-athlete opportunities, the Conference began sponsoring women’s bowling as a championship sport and immediately grabbed national headlines for its successful inaugural season. Five of the league’s seven bowling members occupied a spot in the final regular season edition of the NTCA Top-20 Poll with No. 2 Fairleigh Dickinson defeating topseeded Nebraska to advance all the way

to the semifinal round of the NCAA Women’s Bowling Championship. Lock Haven found itself ranked amongst the nation’s Top-25 as it marched toward its third consecutive NEC field hockey title. In football, Albany became the first NEC team in nearly a decade to post backto-back undefeated seasons within league play. In a game televised nationally on the YES Network, the Great Danes blanked Pioneer Football League champion Jacksonville, 28-0, in the third annual Gridiron Classic. Robert Morris men’s basketball, which has won 50 games and two NEC regular season crowns in two years under head coach Mike Rice, captured its league-best sixth NEC title with a 48-46 last-second victory over Mount St. Mary’s before a nationwide ESPN2 television audience and a school-record crowd at the Charles L. Sewall Center. On the heels of its perfect (18-0) run through the NEC women’s basketball schedule and second NEC Tournament title in four years, Sacred Heart gave third-seeded Ohio State all it could handle in NCAA first round play. Individually, 13 NEC student-athletes received All-America honors in their respective sports. Lock Haven’s Blair Wynne, the only three-time Player of the Year in NEC field hockey history, was named to the Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-America Second Team for the second consecutive season. NEC men’s soccer had its most successful year since 1987 with three players acknowledged at season's end for their play. Quinnipiac’s Graciano Brito earned his second straight NSCAA/adidas All-America honor, and was joined by FDU junior forward Samson Malijani on the third team. Brito and Monmouth’s Angelo Amato were third team College Soccer News honorees. In addition to five football All-Americans, Monmouth’s John Nalbone became the latest NEC player to reach the NFL when he was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2009 Draft. Former Wagner pitching great Andrew Bailey, a 2006 draft pick, broke into the big leagues in a big way during 2009. A non-roster Spring Training invitee, Bailey won a place in Oakland’s bullpen before earning a spot in the MLB All-Star Game three months later. Hoping to someday follow Bailey’s rise up the professional ranks, six of the NEC’s finest were taken in the 2009 MLB Draft – Long Island’s James Jones (Mariners), Monmouth’s Ryan Buch (White Sox) and Brett Brach (Indians), Quinnipiac’s Chris Gloor (Giants), Wagner’s Kyle Morrison (Nationals) and Bryant’s Pat McKenna (Tigers).

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? While some may continue their basketball careers beyond the walls of Bryant University, most Bulldogs leave Smithfield to leave their mark in other fields. Bryant men’s basketball and the Bryant University athletic department promote the importance of motivation, drive and success on more than just the basketball court. Bryant student-athletes are sent into the real world with not just strong basketball skills, but also with the superior academic skills they learned while earning what has undoubtedly become a world-class degree. What follows is a small sample of the success Bryant men’s basketball alumni have experienced since leaving it all on the court.

Arguably the best player in Bryant men’s basketball history, John Williams (’06) spent the past three years playing overseas in Holland and France. This season, Williams returns to the United States and will play in the NBA Developmental League for the Bakersfield (Calif.) Jam. The Jam are affiliated with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers.

Former Bryant standout Chris Burns (’07) is currently a member of the Premier Basketball League’s Manchester (N.H.) Millrats. Mario Correia (’05) plays professional basketball in Angola for one of the nation’s top teams in Promade Cabinda. Correia has been a member of the Cape Verde national team since 2003 and continues to play for the national team today.

TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE Dan Hammond (’07) joined Boston Environmental & Engineering Associates, Inc. after graduating from Bryant and is a program consultant for the Waltham, Mass. business. Boston Enviromental focuses on solving environmental problems through economically and technically sound methods using environmentally sound design and implementation.

Ryan McLean (’09) stayed in the sports world after his four-year career on the court for the Bulldogs. The recent graduate now works as an athletic recruiter and business manager for Evolution Sports Performance in Plymouth, Mass. Evolution Sports Performance is an athletic training facility that helps athletes of all ages strive to be their best, not just in sports but in life.

After a spectacular senior season in 2008-09, Andrew Lyell (’09) said goodbye to competitive basketball and hello to the world of finance. Lyell now spends his days as a credit manager with the well-known Wells Fargo Financial.

With the world-class eduation and well-respected degree Bryant student-athletes receive, many of them have jobs or job offers before even receiving their diploma. Such is the case with three-year player and current student manager Ray Witkos (’10), who will join world-renowned PricewaterhouseCoopers as an assurance associate upon graduation in the Spring of 2010.
