#PrideAndPurpose

2018-19 PREVIEW Most of the Northwestern State women's basketball program's gilded history went hand-in-hand with an uptempo offense that worked in concert with a suffocating defense. In his third season at the helm of the program, head coach Jordan Dupuy said he thinks he has his Lady Demons headed back on that road. "We're moving at a quicker pace than we have scheme-wise," Dupuy said. "We can play at a faster pace. I think we're going to play an exciting style, more like I've wanted to play since I've been here. We're looking to press. Hopeully when we get everyone healthy, we'll be at least 10, 11 deep." Health will be every bit a key for the Lady Demons, who had two returners miss the entire 2017-18 season and lost 63 games to injury from the rest of the roster. As the 2018-19 season drew near, there already were injury issues cropping up for Dupuy's charges. "That's the thing that's hurt us -- the injury aspect," Dupuy said. "We were down to eight healthy players. That was a struggle last year, and we're off to a bad start in that aspect." The good news for Northwestern State is one of the pair who missed the entire 2017-18 season is back healthy. Fifth-year senior point guard Sami Thomas has not played since injuring her knee against Abilene Christian on Feb. 18, 2017. Thomas gained valuable insight from sitting out this past season, and is ready to lead the Lady Demons on the court. "We had her in more of a coaching-type role last year -- helping us with recruiting, practice preparation, drawing up plays," Dupuy said. "She realized the big picture. When you're playing your position, that's the one you're worried about. When you're sitting out, you see everything, see what the coaches want. "I think it's going to make her, one, see things differently and, two, be able to handle things that maybe would have become a problem in the past. She can head those off early." Thomas' absence put a heavier onus on then-sophomore Gabby Bell, who started 26 games at the point and averaged a team-high 31.5 minutes per game. Bell averaged 4.4 assists per game, which ranked fourth in the Southland Conference. "Gabby's done a great job of communicating, leading and creating tempo on both ends of the floor," Dupuy said. " She's more confident as far as knowing what I want. She doesn't have to look over for guidance. That's what I want from my point guards -- a great understanding of what I want and let them communicate it. If they communicate something incorrectly, I'll let them know. Otherwise, they need to take the reins." NSU's short-handed nature in the backcourt also allowed Jada Freeman to gain valuable experience at both guard spots. Freeman appeared in 25 games, starting eight, as a freshman. "She's definitely more comfortable off the ball, making decisions off one or two dribbles, whether it's to shoot or feed a teammate," Dupuy said. "She'll have to play some point with Gabby out, and she's going to have to learn to get comfortable with that. If she concentrates on orchestrating the offense, making the first pass and getting us in the correct defense, she's going to be

fine and save us until Gabby gets back." In her first season on the Division I level, Nautica Grant flashed an ability to score efficiently at times, a boon for Dupuy's preferred uptempo style. Grant ranked second on the team in scoring (9.1 ppg) and in double-figure scoring games (12). In her first four Southland Conference games, Grant reached double figures in a quarter on four occasions. "Nautica can score points in a hurry," Dupuy said. "Again, she has to stay healthy and has to play within the scheme and realize when to take chances. When her man is closing out on her, she doesn't always have to make it a catch-and-shoot situation." Grant should get some scoring relief from the additions of junior Kira Bonner (Jones County Junior College) and Anna Bonham (Skiatook HS). Bonner's athleticism should be have a positive effect on both ends of the floor, something Dupuy made a point to focus on during the recruiting season. "She brings an ability to score in transition and in the half-court," Dupuy said. "She shot 47 percent from 3 in junior college. Once she learns the defensive scheme, she's going to be able to create turnovers. She adds that element we've been looking for." Bonham is another floor-spacing shooter who dealt with preseason injuries. When healthy, Bonham should slot in nicely to the Lady Demons' offense. "She's what we used to call a zone buster," Dupuy said. "When you see a zone, you want to put her in. She's going to shoot the ball, and our system favors a shooter, because you have so many different opportunities to get an open shot." Rounding out Northwestern State's three-member recruting class is another Oklahoma prep product RaVon Nero from Edmond Santa Fe High School. Nero can play either guard spot and step out to the wing if

needed. A second-team Class 6A all-state tournament team, Nero averaged 15.5 points per game as a senior. "She's done an unbelievable job," Dupuy said. "She's made plays on both ends of the floor. She's a very physical player. People are going to love seeing her play. The more she plays, the better she'll undestand the scheme, the more she'll stay on the floor because she is that type of player." Sophomore Nia Randall was the other player to miss the entire 2017-18 season after rupturing her Achilles tendon in preseason workouts. Randall has continued to rehabilitate the injury throughout the offseason. "We dont know where she stands right now," Dupuy said. "It's more about quality of life right now, making sure this isn't a long-term thing she will have to deal with consistently. If she can get to that point, we'll start worrying abut getting her back on the floor." The Lady Demons will return all but three letterwinners from this past season, only one of whom played after December. Up front, NSU returns its leading scorer in Libba Gilliam, who averaged 10.7 points per game. In the past two seasons, Gilliam has increased her scoring average by more than 10 points per game. "She's been scoring it even better, shooting from 15 to 18 feet and from behind the 3-point line," Dupuy said. "She's starting to go a little lower, asking for it on the block and scoring off either shoulder. If she comes back with that mind-set of not worrying about making mistakes and just playing as hard as she can and as physical as she can -- and focuses on the defensive details -she can be an all-conference player for us." At 6-foot-1, Gilliam is tied with Leah Barnes as the tallest players on the NSU roster. As such, both will be counted on to provide rebounding and an inside presence. "Leah is going to see significant minutes," Dupuy said of Barnes, who averaged 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in her first season after transferring from North Dakota State College of Science. "She can shoot 15-foot jumpers, and she can score around the rim. She's our second-biggest player behind Libba. We just don't have a big paint presence, so she and Libba will have to bring that for us." With a smaller roster, a healthy Victoria Miller would be a welcome addition to the front court. Miller played in all but one game in 2017-18 and showed an increased offensive aptitude to go along with a high-motor style of play. "She rebounds, can score and makes things happen defensively," Dupuy said. "If we get healthy, we can wear people down by playing 10 to 12 people, and she gives you that speed and athleticism and she just plays so hard." As Miller did, Jocelyn Scott enjoyed a strong second half of her sophomore season, averaging 16 points per game in NSU's final three games. That run inclued a career-best 26-point performance against Southeastern Louisiana on Feb. 24. "She's definitely more assertive," Dupuy said. "I talked to her in her meet-

ings after last season and told her she would probably have to play some four for us because of our lack of size and depth in the post. "Jocelyn's done a geat job of it. She's rebounded the ball extremely well in preseason, especially on the offensive end. She's given her team a lot of extra opportunities because of how hard she's crashing on the offensive end. I hope she continues that and plays looser than she has in the past. She really can load the stat sheet with the different things she does on the floor." Growth was a theme with NSU's sophomore class a season ago, and perhaps no player embodied that more than Jasmyn Johnson, who led Northwestern State in steals (48) and finished fourth on the team in scoring (6.8) after a freshman season in which she played a total of 149 minutes in 22 games. "She's been the most consistent player in practice," Dupuy said. "She's been the hardest-playing player and the most productive. The only issue she has to worry about is playing under control when she's putting the ball on the floor." Dupuy said he is looking for a similar type improvement from Lacee Savage, an athletic 6-footer who flashed pieces of that promise in a 21-game freshman season. "Lacee is the most talented athlete we have," Dupuy said. "She needs to realize how good she can be, how much we need her and how versatile she is on the floor. She needs to play with that type of aggression and reckless abandon. If that light bulb comes on, the league better watch out."

Dupuy’s recruiting efforts mainly were focused in Mississippi, Florida, Georgia and junior colleges located east of the Mississippi River. Dupuy did more than just recruit well. He helped develop players once they arrived in Hattiesburg. In eight seasons, Dupuy tutored 11 All-Conference USA selections, four All-Conference USA Freshman Team picks, three All-Conference USA Defensive Team selections and two C-USA Newcomers of the Year. Included among those players was Jamierra Faulker, who became the No. 34 overall selection in the 2014 WNBA Draft by the Chicago Sky. In 2015, Kenny Kallina Scouting named Dupuy the top assistant coach in Conference USA, citing in part his recruiting prowess. Dupuy’s attention to student-athletes’ classroom participation dovetails nicely with Northwestern State Director of Athletics Greg Burke’s pillar of classroom performance. With Dupuy on staff, Southern Miss women’s basketball student-athletes produced a 100 percent graduation rate for those who stayed four years in the program. Dupuy was the Lady Eagles’ program liaison with the academic department, monitoring both student-athlete academic progress and the program’s Academic Progress Rate (APR) performance.

#PrideAndPurpose Deneen Parker Associate Head Coach Third season at NSU Stephen F. Austin, 1994 Deneen Parker wasted little time putting her imprint on the Northwestern State women's basketball staff. In two seasons in charge of developing the Lady Demons' frontcourt players, Parker has helped Libba Gilliam increase her scoring and rebounding numbers in each of the past two seasons. Working with Parker, Gilliam has seen her scoring average increase to a career-high 10.1 points per game in 2017-18 when she led Northwestern State in scoring. In addition to Gilliam, Parker has worked to develop Jocelyn Scott into a versatile scorer and defender, capable of playing multiple positions. In her first season under Parker's tutelage, then-sophomore post Cheyenne Brown made tremendous strides in her all-around game while fellow sophomore forward Libba Gilliam became an inside-out weapon, showcasing a deft 3-point touch during conference play. After spending two decades at SMU, Parker's transition to the NSU bench was a smooth one, aided by familiarity with head coach Jordan Dupuy. Parker's and Dupuy’s relationship dates to their time as Conference USA rivals at SMU and Southern Miss, respectively. Parker was part of five NCAA Tournament teams while on Rhonda Rompola’s staff at SMU, helping the Mustangs reach the Big Dance in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2008. With Parker on staff, SMU captured regular-season championships in the Western Athletic Conference (2000) and Conference USA (2009, 2013). SMU’s 1999 WAC Tournament championship was the program’s first as was the Mustangs’ 2000 regular-season title. During her 21 seasons with the Mustangs, Parker burnished her reputation as a standout recruiter, eventually taking over as SMU’s recruiting coordinator. Parker’s college roots began in the Southland Conference when she played four years at Stephen F. Austin, during which time she dueled with some of Northwestern State’s all-time greats including Joskeen Garner and Pam Hudson. She was a two-time Southland Conference Player of the Year and a twotime District VI Kodak All-American while helping lead the Ladyjacks to four straight SLC titles and NCAA Tournament appearances. Parker was part of the gold-medal winning team at the 1991 U.S. Olympic Sports Festival and played professionally in Luxembourg and Germany. Parker was inducted into Stephen F. Austin’s Hall of Fame in 2010. She is a 1994 graduate of SFA in communications with a minor in marketing.

Swinson joined the Northwestern State women’s basketball staff in September. Swinson spent the past two seasons at Prairie View A&M and was the interim head coach following the conclusion of the 2017-18 season. Prior to arriving at Prairie View, Swinson spent five seasons as an assistant at Cincinnati where he often crossed paths with Northwestern State head coach Jordan Dupuy and associate head coach Deneen Parker on the court and on the recruiting trail. “Aaron and I go way back to our days in Conference USA,” Dupuy said. “He, (associate head coach) Deneen (Parker) and I had many battles together, both on the court and on the recruiting trail. Aaron has many special qualities that will serve our program well. To have someone of his caliber available this late is truly a blessing to me, and our program just took a huge step in the right direction we want it to go in. I’m excited to have him working alongside me.” Swinson was an assistant at Tulsa for three seasons before moving to Cincinnati. He also spent one season as an assistant coach with the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA G League. Professional development has been important to Swinson as he has participated in the 2016 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s Center for Coaching Excellence and was part of the Black Coaches Association’s Achieving Coaching Excellence Program. A Brunswick, Georgia, native, Swinson began his coaching career as the head girls basketball coach at Holland Hall Preparatory School in Tulsa, leading the Dutch to the 2006 Southwest Preparatory Conference Division 2 title. A three-year letterman and two-year starter at Auburn from 1991-94, Swinson twice was named All-Southeastern Conference and ended his career shooting .609 from the floor, trailing only Charles Barkley on Auburn’s all-time list. Swinson averaged 16.9 points per game in his Tigers career and scored 1,386 points, ranking 12th in Tigers history. Following his time at Auburn, Swinson joined the Phoenix Suns before being drafted in the first round of the Continental Basketball Association draft by the Yakima Sun Kings. Swinson was named first-team all-rookie and was the team’s MVP before moving on to play 10 seasons internationally in Italy, Spain, France and Argentina. Swinson and his wife, Charlene Thomas-Swinson, have one son (Charles) and one daughter (Jada).

A four-year letter winner and two-year team captain at Christopher Newport, Mitchell helped lead the Captains to the Final Four, Elite Eight and Sweet Sixteen rounds of the Division III national championship tournament. Mitchell tallied 1,262 points in her four years at Christopher Newport, leaving the school as its No. 13 career scorer. In her four seasons as a player, Mitchell helped the Captains compile a 105-19 overall record. After two seasons coaching at Hood College, where she earned her master’s degree in human sciences, Mitchell returned to Christopher Newport and continued to help the Captains reach new heights. During her first season as an assistant (2016-17), Christopher Newport rattled off 19 straight wins to start the season, marking its second-best start in program history. That start helped propel the Captains to their first Capital Athletic Conference regular-season championship and a berth in the Final Four. In the 2017-18 season, Mitchell helped coach the Captains to a Sweet Sixteen berth during a season in which they climbed as high as No. 2 in the national polls.

The Southland Conference Well into its sixth decade of service, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions and approximately 4,200 student-athletes. Having commemorated its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 13 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into the 21st Century. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed four additional members in 2013: Abilene Christian University, Houston Baptist University, the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and the University of New Orleans. In addition to its newest members, the Southland also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. An original Southland member from 1963-73, Abilene Christian rejoined the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, UIW and New Orleans gives the Southland a regular competitive presence in the key metropolitan areas of Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans. Southland cities encompass approximately 14 million people, and six of its television markets rank among the top 100 in the U.S. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses nearly 140,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 800,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), Ma-

#PrideAndPurpose NORTHWESTERN STATE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL HISTORY

Since the first team took the court in 1908, the women’s basketball program at Northwestern State has always scored a lot of points and won a lot of games. Dating to the early 1970s, when little attention was given to women’s athletics in college, the Lady Demons were already drawing attention with winning records and postseason success. In fact, while women’s sports were not yet funded by the university budget, the Lady Demons earned a trip to the National Women’s Invitational Tournament in 1973, led by volunteer coach Lou Lewis Baxter, a physical education professor. Recognized officially (and funded) by the university for the 1974-75 season, the Lady Demons hit the court running, posting an 18-9 record under head coach Mary Jane Mayfield. In April 1975, Northwestern became the first university in Louisiana to issue full athletic scholarships to women, when NSU athletes Pat Nolen, Diane Pittman, Emma Ellerman, Louise “Do” Bonin, Sherrill Landry, Terri McDonnell, Inez Brew, Mona Davidson, Janie Wallace and Margaret Langford were the recipients. Tammy Primeaux and Lisa Brewer were high school seniors who accepted scholarships to play basketball for the Lady Demons. In 1974-75, the Lady Demons advanced to the Louisiana Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women basketball tournament, splitting four games with Southwestern Louisiana before moving onto the AIAW Region IV tournament. The Lady Demons repeated the accomplishment for the next three years under Charlotte Corley, posting a 14-13 record in state tournaments and an 8-8 mark in regional tournaments. While the Lady Demons were a powerful force in state women’s basketball under their first three coaches, it was under the leadership of Pat Nolen Pierson that the Lady Demons tasted their first bit of national recognition. After finishing her playing career with the Lady Demons and graduating with honors, she came within one game of claiming a state championship in her only year of high school coaching at her alma mater, Pitkin High School. She took over the Northwestern State program following that season, just 23 years old. During her nine years as head coach, the Lady Demons became a force on the national level as women’s basketball moved into the NCAA Division I mainstream around the country after playing in the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for

Women in the 1970s. A formidable partnership was created when Pierson hired James Smith as assistant coach in 1980. He was responsible for installing the Lady Demons’ trademark fast-break offense. The Pierson-Smith tandem won 71 percent of their games (135-56) in their seven years together. During those years, Northwestern State became a fixture in the national top 10 scoring rankings. That attack appealed to top athletes like Lonnie Banks, Teressa Thomas, Annie Harris, Linda Grayson and Sandy Pugh, highly recruited prep stars who became Lady Demon greats. The Lady Demons won three straight Gulf Star Conference championships (1984-86), receiving votes for the AP Top 20 each year. The 1985-86 squad made the biggest breakthrough, setting a single season record for victories and becoming the first Northwestern State team to participate in postseason play at the NCAA Division I level. That team, led by Thomas, Banks and Harris, stunned 1985 NCAA Final Four entry Northeast Louisiana (ranked No. 4 in USA Today Top 25) 86-83 on Jan. 30, 1986. Northwestern State had a 20-point halftime lead and held off a rally as Harris ripped in 37 points and Thomas pumped in 25 more to go along with eight assists and Banks, at 5-foot-5, snagged 14 rebounds. A pair of late-season road losses at Southeastern Louisiana and Sam Houston probably kept the Lady Demons out of the 32-team NCAA Tournament. However, the NWIT issued an invitation to Northwestern State and it was well received on both ends. By the end of the NWIT in Amarillo, Texas, the Lady Demons had won over the local crowd and nearly won the tournament title. Seeded sixth, Northwestern State topped Tennessee Tech, 77-71, and squeaked by Duke, 89-88, on a last-second jumper by Harris to reach the championship contest. As a crowd of 2,600 Texans cheered wildly “on another night in Lady Demon Land,” as the local newspaper put it, Northwestern battled to the last minute before falling 100-91 to Idaho. Thomas and Harris were All-Tournament picks. Thomas had a national record 19 assists in an 88-77 win over Mississippi College earlier in her senior year. The Lady Demons won a fourth straight conference title in 1986-87 with a win over Southwest Texas, sharing the title with Stephen F. Austin. Sandy Pugh was named conference MVP, the first time a Lady Demon picked up that honor.

NSU’s all-time leading rebounder, Joskeen Garner

At the end of the 1987 campaign, Pierson made a difficult decision and left Northwestern to rejuvenate the women’s basketball program at East Carolina. It was an easy decision, however, to elevate Smith to the head coaching position. In 17 years, he took the program to even greater heights while surpassing Pierson as the alltime winningest coach in Lady Demon history during the 1995-96 season. Senior Linda Grayson combined with junior college transfer Pam Hudson to lead another landmark year for the Lady Demons in 1988-89. Smith’s second team knocked off No. 11 Stephen F. Austin, 78-76, and earned an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament. In 1989-90, the program took another huge step forward when Hudson won the Division I rebounding title (15.2 rpg), finished second in the scoring race (28.4 ppg) and rewrote school and Southland Conference records on the way to becoming the first major college All-American in Northwestern State women's basketball history. She was a second-team pick on the Basketball Writers of America team and a honorable mention Kodak All-American. In 1993, the Lady Demons posted another winning campaign (24-8) with a freshman nucleus led by Joskeen Garner, the Southland Conference Freshman of the Year and a first team All-SLC pick. Northwestern State accepted a bid to the NWIT and claimed the consolation championship (third place). The 1993-94 Lady Demons posted their 15th consecutive winning season with a 20-8 record as Garner was the nation’s second leading rebounder (13.8 rpg) and named Louisiana’s Co-Player of the Year with Pam Thomas of Louisiana Tech. Northwestern State posted its fourth consecutive 20-win season en route to a record-tying 25-7 record in 1994-95. The Lady Demons captured their first Southland Conference championship, finishing league play with a 16-2 record. Northwestern State lost to SFA in the tournament championship game, but accepted a bid to the NWIT for the second time in three years. The seventh-seeded Lady Demons were the surprise team in Amarillo, Texas. Northwestern State opened with an 80-64 win over Clemson. They followed with a 103-93

#PrideAndPurpose win over Notre Dame in a semifinal shootout before losing a hard-fought battle against Texas A&M in the finals, 85-81. Joskeen Garner became the first Lady Demon since Pam Hudson to earn All-American honors, being named to the Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American team. The Lady Demons again posted impressive numbers in 1995-96 while posting their 17th straight winning season, one win shy of a fifth straight 20-win season. Northwestern State went through a rebuilding process in 1996-97 but found a star in Judy Clark, named Southland Conference Freshman of the Year. The 1998-99 squad put their stamp on the the Lady Demons record books. The team reeled off 13 straight wins from Dec. 20, 1998 to Feb. 6, 1999, a new Lady Demons record and finished the year with a 22-7 overall record. Clark added another piece of hardware to her trophy case, as she was selected Southland Conference Player of the Year. The Southland Conference regular season champions lost to Stephen F. Austin in the tournament finals, but once again were invited to the WNIT, the third time in six years for NSU. In a new format, the Lady Demons lost in the first round on the road against Arkansas. In 1999-00, the Lady Demons (24-6) notched an .800 winning percentage, the best in school history. The Lady Demons also had the third-most wins in school history. The 1999-00 season did end in disappointment, however, as the Lady Demons failed to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament despite a higher RPI ranking than several teams that were offered bids. The 2000-01 team led by Kia Converse rolled off a school-record 15 straight wins from Jan. 1 to March 8, finishing the season with a mark of 23-7. The Lady Demons advanced to the tournament finals, only to lose to SFA. Converse became the SLC’s all-time best 3-point shooter with 218 career 3s. The 2003-04 team looked loaded in what turned out to be coach Smith’s final season, and the pieces fell into place. The Lady Demons rolled through the SLC season

Linda Grayson is NSU’s all-time leading scorer and the only Lady Demon with at least 2,000 points scored.

with a 14-2 mark, including an 11-0 start. The team finished 24-7, tying for the second-most wins in a season while winning the SLC regular-season and tournament crowns, advancing to the second NCAA Tournament in school history. Cooda Dobin became NSU’s career assist leader with 921. She also became the first player in NCAA history, men or women, to lead the nation in assists per game for three straight seasons. She was featured in the NCAA Final Four official program. Dobin later returned to the Lady Demon program as an assistant coach for the 2011-12 season. On Sept. 1, 2004, the torch was passed. Smith stepped down as head coach and Lady Demon player and assistant coach Jennifer Graf, after being groomed by her mentor for the last two seasons, took over as head coach. Graf stepped down at NSU after accumulating more than 100 wins for the Lady Demons at the conclusion of the 2011-12 season, and on Apr. 4, 2012, the first set of co-head coaches in program history was hired. Brooke Stoehr, who started at point guard for rival Louisiana Tech from 2000-02, was hired from Texas Tech with her husband, Scott. The two immediately saw success after doubling the program’s win total in just a year and taking NSU to its third NCAA tournament after an SLC Tourney championship in 2014. The 2013-14 season was much like the days of old with a 20-win season, its first since 2004, and one team standing between NSU and the big dance, Stephen F. Austin. The Lady Demons downed the Ladyjacks 62-44 on March 16 to claim the second league tournament title in school history which led to Brooke and Scott Stoehr capturing the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Coaches of the Year Award. The Stoehrs added to their legacy in March 2015, leading Northwestern State to a second straight Southland Conference Tournament championship and a return trip to the NCAA Tournament. NSU’s appearance against Baylor marked the first time in program history it had reached consecutive NCAA Tournaments. Behind two-time All-Louisiana first-teamer Janelle Perez, who ended her stellar Lady Demons career in the top 10 in numerous career categories, NSU made its Women’s Basketball Invitational debut in 2016. Perez, meanwhile, left NSU as the school’s all-time 3-point leader, canning 241 career 3s. The first three-year run of postseason play capped the Stoehrs’ time in Natchitoches, leaving for Louisiana Tech after the 2015-16 season. Jordan Dupuy, the newest Lady Demons coach, began his run in 2016-17 promising to re-establish a high-tempo offense that long was a NSU staple. Dupuy's inagural season produced a program first as senior guard Beatrice Attura earned first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American honors. Attura, who left as the school's single-season 3-point record holder (88), added first-team All-Louisiana and All-Southland Conference honors in her final Lady Demons campaign. Four Lady Demons have had their jerseys retired after great careers. Hanging in the rafters of Prather Coliseum, alongside the many championship banners, are Pam Hudson’s No. 45, Linda Grayson’s No. 33, Lonnie Banks’ No. 10, and Teressa Thomas’ No. 25. It’s a safe bet, looking at the fast track record of success for Lady Demons hoops, that more banners will be raised soon.

#PrideAndPurpose

PRATHER COLISEUM Perhaps the toughest arena to play in the Southland Conference, Prather Coliseum is now in its sixth decade of hosting Northwestern State basketball and is named after H. Lee Prather, the all-time winningest coach in Demon Basketball history. The 3,400-seat multi-purpose facility was constructed in 1963 and sits on the banks of Chaplin’s Lake, just south of Turpin Stadium. The coliseum houses offices for men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, soccer, the NSU news bureau, sports information, compliance, athletic facilities and vice president of external affairs offices. The arena was given a major facelift before the 2012-13 season with the addition of a permanent wood floor that fits three basketball courts, attractive new courtside purple seating that includes end-zone bleachers and new interior signage and banners.

Dr. Chris Maggio

Northwestern State President Chris Maggio is a competitor for all seasons. Northwestern State’s second-year president was an all-sports athlete in high school, a college distance runner at NSU, and a high school football, basketball and track coach. He became a college coach in track and field for the Demons and Lady Demons. He even spent a few years as a high school basketball referee. His zeal for competition makes him a dynamic recruiter and fund raiser for NSU, and his ability to mentor staff members and students combines with his warmth and sincerity to produce a tremendously effective university administrator.

Dr. Darlene Williams moved up to run the University of Louisiana System, which includes Northwestern and eight other state universities. Maggio, 54, is a lifelong resident of Natchitoches and long-time faculty and staff member at Northwestern State. He is the university’s 19th president since its founding in 1884, and the first one who is homegrown, along with the first to be a four-year athletic letterwinner as a Demon competitor. Maggio was named vice president for the student experience at Northwestern State last September after serving as interim vice president for just over a year. He maintained his role as vice president for the student experience while serving as acting president. When the NSU Student Services building opened three years ago, designers had a lovely office location for Maggio on the second floor. He asked instead for the room just inside the front door to the building, not connected to any administrative wing, but envisioned as a conference space. His reasoning: Maggio wanted to see everybody who walked in the door, and providing the ability to immediately engage them or at least be easily accessible for anyone who needed help. As vice president, Maggio led the Dean of Students and the Offices of Admissions, Recruiting, Financial Aid, Student Activities and Organizations, First Year Experience and Leadership Development, Judicial Services, Counseling and Career Services, Student Life, the Student Activities Board, Student Government Association, Student Support Services, and Greek Life. Northwestern State has recorded enrollment increases for the past three years, with record numbers in 2017-18, peaked by 10,578 in the fall 2017 semester. Projected fall 2018 enrollment is over 11,000. Maggio served as assistant vice president of external affairs for university advancement from 2013 until 2015, when he was promoted by Dr. Henderson. He has been a staff member at Northwestern State since 1988, when he joined the track and field coaching staff. After several years as director of admissions and recruiting during record-setting enrollment for NSU, Maggio was selected as director of alumni affairs in 1999, director of alumni and development in 2003, executive director of the NSU Foundation in 2005

74

and Dean of Students and assistant provost for student success in 2007. During his career at NSU, Maggio also served as director of enrollment services. Under Maggio’s leadership, the NSU Foundation completed its first capital campaign in Northwestern’s history, exceeding a campaign goal of $18.84 million and raising $31 million to support the university. He has also been a faculty member in the Department of Health and Human Performance for more than 20 years as an instructor, assistant professor and associate professor. Maggio came on board the NSU staff in 1988 as assistant track and field coach, then became head women’s coach a year later. After a very successful five years in that capacity, in 1994 Maggio moved into administration as the fundraiser for NSU Athletics before quickly being snapped up to become the university’s director of admissions and recruiting. Maggio is a 1985 summa cum laude graduate of Northwestern State. He won Gulf Star Conference All-Academic honors in track and field and helped the Demons win the 1985 GSC championship. As a senior, he was elected Mr. NSU by his fellow students. Maggio earned his master’s of education at NSU. He received a doctorate in developmental education from Grambling State University. His parents helped run a family business in Natchitoches. His father, Buddy, was honored as a “Natchitoches Treasure” in 2015 by the City of Natchitoches. As a young boy, Maggio became playmates with future Basketball Hall of Fame member Joe Dumars, whose home was near one of the Maggio’s stores. Dr. Maggio’s wife, Jennifer, was formerly on the NSU staff as Coordinator of Adult Education Initiatives. They have three children, Melanie, Scott, and Emily. Emily is a high school student at St. Mary’s Catholic School of Natchitoches, while her older siblings attend colleges outside of Natchitoches.

Jerry Pierce

Vice President • External Affairs Only a couple of people have served Northwestern State as long as alumnus Jerry Pierce has, and nobody has done so in a more understated manner. In his 53rd year on the university’s staff, Pierce’s impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches is indelible. He’s never wanted or gotten top billing, but consistently, he gets results to benefit the university. He is in his 28th year as vice president of external affairs at Northwestern. A significant aspect of his job is oversight of intercollegiate athletics. Pierce works closely with athletic director Greg Burke and all NSU coaches and staff members to keep Northwestern athletics competing at a championship level week after week, month after month and year after year. At NSU’s 2018 Homecoming celebration Oct. 27, Pierce will be honored at the N-Club Hall of Fame ceremony, becoming only the second person to receive the “Leadership Award” from the organization of former Northwestern athletic letterwinners. Pierce, an avid tennis player, has been a member of USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state championships, five regional titles and NSU Athletic Council one national championship. Jody Biscoe (Chair) Well before moving into the executive position, Pierce had already Angela Bolton Steven Boyd served his alma mater, adopted hometown and state with distinction. In Nick Forde (Student-Athlete) his role as vice president, he oversees university operations in athletics, Kimberly Gallow alumni and development, public and media relations and assists President Frank Hall Dr. Chris Maggio in governmental affairs activities.

He was named executive sports editor at the age of 24. Greg Burke In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and returned Dustin Eubanks to NSU as sports information director. He was promoted to news bureau diRoxanne Freeman rector two years later and assumed additional responsibilities in athletics, Dr. Chris Maggio alumni affairs and other areas through the years.

He estabJerry Pierce lished annual induction activities that remain in place nearly five decades Dr. Haley Taitano later, serving as director of the Hall for 19 years until his promotion to vice president in April 1990 forced him to step aside from the volunteer post. He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of the Southland and has served the conference through other offices and committee positions. In 1994, he was named one of Louisiana’s 20 most influential sports figures by the Times-Picayune. Also on the list were New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, LSU athletic director Joe Dean and basketball coach Dale Brown, and Grambling football coaching legend Eddie Robinson. His salesmanship and managerial skills were instrumental in convincing Tri-Star Productions to film the 1989 smash hit movie “Steel Magnolias,” with an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Sally Field and Dylan McDermott in Natchitoches and on the NSU campus. The movie’s impact on tourism in Natchitoches continues to resonate nearly three decades later. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana’s higher education system. He has been also a master of ceremonies and speaker who has enlivened hundreds of events since 1965. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Pierce is a tenured member of the Journalism Department faculty. He is the author of one book and editor of two others and has written thousands of editorials, columns, features and other articles for newspapers and magazines.

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File

AGE: 62 (Born Oct. 22, 1956) • HOMETOWN: Alliance, Ohio • HIGH SCHOOL: Marlington ’74 • COLLEGE: Mt. Union ’78 (cum laude) POSTGRADUATE: Kent State ’86 • BEFORE HE WAS A.D.: Sports writer, Alliance (Ohio) Review, 1972-78; director of news and sports information, Hiram (Ohio) College, 1978-85; administrative intern, NSU athletics, 1985-86; director, NSU Athletic Association, 1986-92; director of athletic development, University of Akron, 1992-96; director of athletics, Northwestern State, 1996-present. BIG FAN OF: Cleveland Browns, Indians and Cavaliers • INTERESTS: Working out, watching ESPN and VH1 Classic, family outings.

In the middle of h his 23rd year as director of athletics at Northwestern State, Greg Burke is highly regarded far past the 318 area code due to the work he’s done in his adopted hometown. Burke, a native Ohioan and avid fan of all Cleveland pro sports teams, has been the Demons’ athletics director since Aug. 29, 1996, when his first day included speaking at the annual NSU/ Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. Burke is the longest serving AD at any Louisiana or Southland Conference institution, and is believed to be the longest-serving AD in state history. He has steered NSU athletics to many of its greatest accomplishments while overseeing a program that has fielded championship-caliber teams in a dozen of the school’s 14 NCAA Division I sports. Highlights in Burke’s two decades as athletic director include 42 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 68 All-America and Academic All-America student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Twenty-six NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or other postseason competition. All of the school’s athletic facilities have undergone over $8 million in improvements in the past few years, including the following - $1 million of enhancements to Turpin Stadium’s video board and sound system due before the 2017 home opener; a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues; the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues; a $500,000 softball grandstand project; and a $600,000 upgrade of chairback seating at Turpin Stadium for the 2016 football season. Plans for a track and field locker room, women’s tennis locker room, strength and conditioning annex to the Athletic Fieldhouse and a baseball operations building are all on the drawing board. Fundraising initiatives reached new levels in 2017-18. Formalizing the endowed giving program, branded as “Perpetually Purple,” has generated an influx of outright and deferred gifts that have the athletic scholarship endowment teetering at the $2 million mark. In addition, overall revenue generated by donations and sponsorships cracked $2 million for the second straight year. Competitively, milestones continue. One of the biggest under Burke: NSU in 2004-05 became the first (and remains the only) Southland Conference member in the league’s five decades of history to sweep football, men’s basketball and baseball championships in the same athletic year. It’s been done only once in Southeastern Conference history, by Alabama in 1933-34, and only four times in Big Ten Conference history, the last time by Michigan State in 1979-80. Those accomplishments have come with one of the more modest athletic budgets in the state and conference. Burke’s management skill and fundraising ability have been pivotal. Burke has a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches. Anchors of the department are current head coaches Mike McConathy, Louisiana’s all-time career basketball wins leader; softball coach Donald Pickett, and track and field coach Mike Heimerman, a trio with nearly 50 combined years on staff at NSU. Three former student-athletes in Burke’s tenure have become NSU head coaches, including second-year baseball coach Bobby Barbier, who just led NSU to its first Southland Conference baseball tournament title in just his second year. Numerous Burke hires had great success at Northwestern State that propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. Former baseball coach John Cohen is beginning his first full year as AD at Mississippi State. Over 100 more former NSU student-athletes, coaches and support staff members, most of them here with Burke as AD or assistant AD (1986-92), are working in college athletics at some level. Former Demons are head coaches in the SEC, Big XII, Mountain West Conference, Conference USA, Ohio Valley, SWAC, Big XII, Big Sky, Sun Belt, Atlantic Coast and Southland Conferences. Five others hold Associate AD positions in the SEC, PAC 12, Big East and American Athletic conferences. Former Burke lieutenants Todd Garzarelli (Wisconsin-Whitewater), Jason Horn (Xavier-NO) and Adam Jonson (LSU Alexandria) are now athletics directors, while Kurt Gulbrand is senior associate AD for development at Tennessee and Jodie Libadisos is associate AD for student-athlete enhancement at South Florida. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. Tremendous competitive strides have been made in women’s athletics under his guidance. Just in the past five years, Lady Demon basketball (2014, 2015), softball (2013, 2014), tennis (2013, 2015) and volleyball (2015) have reached NCAA Tournaments. Burke established a high standard for NSU Athletics in academic achievement and community service. The academic accomplishments are reflected annually in the NCAA’s APR and GSR studies. Community service by NSU student-athletes, coaches and staff totals 5,000 hours annually. The Southland Conference created the “Southland Strong” Community Service award to recognize the

76

member institution whose student-athletes compile the most service hours each year. NSU won the inaugural prize in 2014-15 and was second in 2015-16 and 2017-18. Burke spearheaded the adoption of the slogan “Great Tradition, Brighter Future” for NSU Athletics, and the creation of NSU Athletics “Cornerstones” for student-athletes: “Academic Achievement, Personal Responsibility, Competitive Success … Every Minute, Every Hour, Every Day!” During February 2013, he was presented the “Outstanding Contributions to Amateur Football Award” by the North Louisiana chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame. Six years ago, he was included among 29 winners of the Under Amour AD of the Year Award presented by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). Burke was the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. He serves on the NCAA Committee on Academics, a 20-person group replacing the Committee on Academic Performance, which included Burke. He also has served on the NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet. Burke previously served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee (1999-2002) and concurrently served a term on the eight-member NCAA FCS Committee that administers the national playoffs. He has served as a site supervisor for Football Championship Subdivision playoff games across the nation, and he is regarded as one of the country’s premiere advocates of FCS football. In 2005, Burke was one of three recipients of the All-America Football Foundation’s Gen. Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award and that same year, was also tabbed as one of two Natchitoches Parish Cenla Newsmakers of 2005 by the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper’s editorial staff. He received the 2006 “Outstanding Alumni Award” from his alma mater, Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio, recognizing his community service and professional achievements. At the time, Burke became one of only 21 alumni honored since the award was instituted in 1982. Burke serves on the Natchitoches Convention and Visitors Bureau board, and on the board of directors for the Central Louisiana Community Foundation. He is a past president of the Natchitoches Kiwanis Club and remains active in that civic group. He has also been part of the steering committee for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival and is a former member of the Natchitoches Area Jaycees. He has been involved with the American Heart Association and was 2010 March of Dimes chairman locally. His wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 24-year-old daughter, Catherine, graduated from St. Mary’s Catholic School in May of 2012 earned an undergraduate degree from Louisiana Tech and will complete her graduate studies at UL Lafayette in December. She began a career in public relations and marketing this summer.

Eubanks is married to the former Dawn Hornsby of Branch and the couple has two daughters, Taylor (12) and Emilie (23), the latter being a recent summa cum laude graduate of NSU. The sisters share the same birthdate. Dustin and Dawn, who is the associate bursar at NSU, celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary this summer.
