2011-12 OUTLOOK The Delaware State University men’s basketball team hopes to erase the memory of last season in its quest to return to the upper echelon in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The 2010-11 Hornets dropped 12 of their final 13 games, including the last eight, to post a 9-21 overall record and were tied for eighth in the MEAC with a 5-11 mark in league play. Delaware State head coach Greg Jackson expects to return seven letter winners in his 12th season with the Hornets, including four starters, from last year’s squad. Returners include, arguably, the MEAC’s top point guard, the reigning league Rookie of the Year and a potential AllConference power forward. The Hornets will be led this season by point guard Jay Threatt (sr.; 5-11; Richmond, Va.), who ranks in the Top 10 percent among nearly 4,500 NCAA Division I men’s basketball players expected to compete in the 2011-12 season, according to a respected statistical firm known for its work with professional and

major college sports teams, and national political campaigns. According to the Sabermatrics report by Concentricsgrasstops.com, Threatt comes in at No. 372 among 4,472 men’s players likely to compete at the NCAA’s highest level this season. During the 201011 season, Threatt was tops in the MidEastern Athletic Conference in assists (6.0 pg), steals (3.1 pg) and assist-to-turnover ratio (2.7). Nationally, he was tied for second among all Division I players in steals, 15th in assistto-turnovers and 16th in assists.

In addition, he is on pace to establish new Delaware State career marks for steals and assists. Threatt needs just nine steals to pass Emmanual Davis (1988-90) as the Hornets’ all-time leader (183) and he’s 89 assists shy of surpassing Miles Davis (200004) atop the school’s career list (390). The Hornets will also return sharp shooter Casey Walker (so.; 6-4; Broadnax, Va.), the 201011 MEAC Rookie of the Year. Walker was tops on the Hornets in scoring at 13.4 points per-game as a true freshman last season. In addition, he was third in the MEAC and tops among NCAA Div. I freshman in three-pointers at 2.4 per-game (73 total) during the 2010-11 campaign.

Threatt, who averaged 9.7 points per-game, also set a Walker tallied 20-or-more DSU single season record with points in a team-high seven 179 assists last season. contests last season.

Power forward Marques Oliver (jr. 6-7; Durham, N.C.)


MEN’S BASKETBALL has emerged as one of the MEAC top post players. Oliver led the Hornets in rebounding (6.4 pg) and was third in scoring (10.4 ppg) last season. He ranked fourth in the MEAC in blocks (2.2 pg; 64 total), eighth in field goal percentage (.481) and 11th in rebounding. Starting center James Marcellus (sr. 6-8; Dorchester, Mass) also returns. Marcellus averaged 1.5 points and 1.6 rebounds per game, while shooting .553 from the field (21-for-38) last season. The Hornets are also expected to be bolstered by a highly group list of newcomers. Among the new faces is athletic shooting guard Tahj

Tate (6-3/185; Easley, S.C.), who was recruited by a number of major colleges before enrolling in prep school last year. A former top 100 recruit, Tate averaged nearly 28 points per game as a senior at Wheeler (S.C.) High School. The Hornets will also welcome former Michigan “Mr. Basketball” runnerup Amere’ May (6-3/180; Covert, Mich.) to the active roster this season. A 200910 McDonald’s All-America nominee, May was a Michigan All-State and three-time all-conference selection. He averaged 35.3 points per game during senior season at Covert High School. Delaware State, which finished 334th out of 335 Div. I teams in rebounding margin in 2010-11 (-9.7 pg), has also added two 6-9 players this season.

Coger (jr.; 6-9/225; Greensboro, N.C.) averaged 15 points and three rebounds per game for the Dolphins in 2010-11. Local product Kendall Gray (fr.; 6-9/220; Dover, Del.) averaged double figures in points and rebounds as a senior at Polytech (Del.) High School. North Carolina high school standout Abdul Kasim (67/225; Raleigh, N.C.) and former Delaware prep star Tyshawn Bell (so.; 6-7/210; Dover, Del.) will also join the Hornets this season.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

THE MEAC The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) begins its 42nd year of intercollegiate competition heading into the 2011-12 academic school year. Located in Norfolk, Va., the MEAC is made up of 13 outstanding historically black institutions across the Atlantic coastline: Bethune-Cookman University, Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University, Savannah State University and South Carolina State University. The MEAC sponsors 15 Division I (FCS) sports with automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason competition in baseball, bowling, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and field, softball, and volleyball. MEAC student-athletes excel on and off the field and several have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and All-District teams. The MEAC awards two post-graduate scholarships of $5,000 each annually to one male and one female student-athlete who have excelled academically and athletically and are in their final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility and competition under MEAC and NCAA regulations. HISTORY In 1969, a bold ad hoc group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, N.C., to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference. From these discussions, they formed a steering and planning committee to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions and construct a workshop to outline proposals. After selecting a proposal and adopting a program, seven institutions (Delaware State College, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University and South Carolina State College) agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Their major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The conference agreed to seek Division I status for its sports. The conference was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971. In 1978, the MEAC reached a milestone when it selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in May of 1996. In July 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named commissioner and has served in the position for nine years. The conference’s first expansion occurred in October 1979 when BethuneCookman College and Florida A&M University were voted into the MEAC as new

members. Original members Morgan State, North Carolina Central and Maryland Eastern Shore withdrew from the conference at the end of the 1979-80 fiscal year. Maryland Eastern Shore was readmitted in 1981 and Morgan State returned in 1984. Florida A&M opted to resign in 1984 but rejoined the conference in 1986. Coppin State College was granted admittance in 1985, becoming the ninth member institution. The MEAC expanded again in the 1990s with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The conference expanded once again in 2007, adding Winston-Salem State University. Following the 2009-10 academic/athletic season, however, Winston-Salem State withdrew from the conference and returned to Division II. On July 1, 2010, the MEAC made its most recent expansion with the admittance of North Carolina Central and Savannah State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified as a Division I conference by the NCAA. Prior to that year, the conference operated as a Division II conference. The month after it achieved Division I status, the MEAC received an automatic qualification to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. Currently, the conference has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men’s basketball (since 1981), women’s basketball (since 1982), football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men’s and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994). The MEAC initiated cross country in 1980, and North Carolina A&T earned the inaugural men’s crown. The first women’s cross country championship took place a year later, with Howard winning the first of its seven titles. Indoor Track and Field was also added in 1981, with South Carolina State capturing the men’s title and Howard winning the women’s crown. Tennis and golf returned as MEAC-governed sports in 1981 after a five-year hiatus. South Carolina State won all seven of the conference’s golf championships from 1972-1983 before the sport was discontinued after the 1983 championship. Baseball, which began in 1972, was discontinued following the 1977 season. It was brought back as a MEAC-governed sport along with women’s volleyball in 1983. Women’s softball became a MEAC-sanctioned sport in 1992. Bowling was officially sanctioned as a MEAC sport in 1999. The MEAC was the first conference to secure NCAA sanctioning for women’s bowling by adopting the club sport prior to the 1996-97 school year. SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS The MEAC has enjoyed tremendous athletic success over the years. In 2008, Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) defeated Arkansas State 4-2 to win the NCAA Women’s Bowling National Championship, a first for the conference and institution. With the victory, Lady Hawks’ Head Coach Sharon Brummell became the first female head coach to win an NCAA bowling title. The Lady Hawks repeated the feat in 2011 to win the team’s second NCAA title. During the same season, UMES won the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Championships (ITC), becoming the first team to win two national championships during the same season.

The No. 13 Hampton Lady Pirates faced No. 4 Kentucky in the 2011 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament. The 13th seed was the highest seed earned by a MEAC women’s basketball program since the inception of the 64-team bracket in 1994.

In football, the MEAC was instrumental in constructing the Freedom Bowl All-Star Classic, the Heritage Bowl and the Gold Bowl. Prior to Division I competition, the MEAC competed in the Gold Bowl, held in Richmond, Va., which matched the MEAC champion against the champion of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA). South Carolina State represented the MEAC in 1976 and 1979, winning both outings over Winston-Salem State and Norfolk State respectively. In addition to the 1976 and 1979 crowns, South Carolina State won MEAC football titles in 1974-78, 1980-83, 1994, 2004, 2008 and 2009. South Carolina State won MEAC football titles in 1974-78, 1980-83,1994, 2004, 2008 and 2009. They were also named co-champions along with Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M during the 2010 season. During the 1981 and 1982 seasons, South Carolina State reached the second round of the I-AA championships. On the track, Hampton’s Francenca McCorory set an American record in the 400m dash with a time of 50.54 and defended her national indoor title at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships. McCorory, a two-time All-American and threetime MEAC indoor champion in the 400m dash, became the first back-to-back NCAA indoor 400m champion since Suziann Reid of Texas (1998 and 1999). McCorory was named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I National Athlete of the Year for the 2010 Indoor Track and Field season. In outdoor track and field, North Carolina Central won the first three MEAC titles. The quartet of Melvin Bassett, Robert Ouko, Julius Sang and Larry Black set the world record in the sprint medley relay with a time of 38.19 in the 1972 Olympics. The Eagles finished fourth in the 1974 NCAA Division I Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship. MEAC women began outdoor track and field conference competition in 1980. In 1982, South Carolina State won the AIAW Division II Outdoor Track and Field National Championship. The MEAC has showcased more than 27 athletes in the Olympics. Among them, 11 have earned medals during the Summer Games. In 2003, Florida A&M became the first MEAC school to win a volleyball match in the NCAA Championship, with a first-round win over Winthrop. In 2004, the Lady Rattlers became the first historically black college/university to rank in the Top 25 of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) national poll. South Carolina State’s women’s tennis team earned the conference’s first Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) ranking in a 2005 poll, reaching No. 72. In softball, Bethune-Cookman earned the conference’s first-ever at-large bid to the NCAA Softball Championship in 2005. The Lady Wildcats defeated Florida, Central Florida and South Florida in the Florida Regional to become the first MEAC school to win an NCAA Division I Softball Regional. Bethune-Cookman ended the 2005 season with the conference’s first-ever rankings in the final softball polls, reaching No. 18 in the NFCA/USA Today Coaches poll and No. 23 in the USA Softball/ESPN.com Poll. Florida A&M was the first MEAC baseball team to advance to NCAA postseason play in 1994. The Rattlers took on Southeastern Louisiana in a best of three playin series, falling after two games, 11-10 and 8-7. During the 2002 campaign, Bethune-Cookman advanced to the Gainesville Regional and became the first MEAC team to win in the NCAA Tournament with a 7-4 victory over Florida International. The Wildcats had previously lost to Florida in their first game 13-1, and the team was eliminated from the regional with a 21-10 loss in its second matchup against the Gators.

He has traveled throughout the state and region to share his vision for athletics at the university.

Carter was also appointed to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Tournament Committee in 2010. In Carter’s first full year at Delaware State, the Hornets placed 98 student-athletes on the MEAC Commissioner’s All-Academic Team (then a school record).

Only the DSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics can provide complimentary admissions to prospects and only for HOME events. * A booster is prohibited from paying or arranging for transportation for a prospect and/or relatives and friends of a prospect to visit campus. While it is permissible for a friend or neighbor to transport a high school or community college student who is NOT an athlete to the campus, NCAA regulations prohibit the activity for a prospect.

Under NCAA rules, parents, alumni, fans and friends may be categorized as “representatives of athletics interests.”

Delaware State University strives for academic and athletic excellence. Pursuant to that goal is an on-going commitment to ethical conduct by all members of its staff and supporters. Even the simplest, inadvertent actions on the part of a booster or supporter may jeopardize the eligibility of student-athletes and/or prospects and the compliance of the university with NCAA or MEAC regulations.

Extra Benefits

Extra benefits (as defined by the NCAA) – “any special arrangement by an institutional employee or representative of athletics interest to provide a student-athlete a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation.

Employment Rules

Delaware State University and its Director of Athletics ask that all boosters, prior to employing or arranging for the employment of a prospect or enrolled student-athlete, check first with the DSU Athletics Department.

DOVER Visitors to Kent County, Delaware are pleasantly surprised by the variety of historical and cultural attractions, beautiful farmland and coastal scenery, and curious mix of old traditions and modern high-tech culture. In Kent County, visitors can find Amish buggies on city streets, delicate shorebirds and giant C-5 Galaxy military cargo planes, quiet museums and exciting NASCAR races, arts and antiques, Colonial history, slots and harness racing. Dover, the capital of the First State, invites you to experience life in a small American city – history, tax-free shopping and ambiance, all in a clean safe and friendly environment. You can spend the day shopping or strolling the quaint tree-lined streets to take in the city’s historic architecture, and spend the evenings at the theater or trying your luck at a gaming facility.

You can step back in time, literally, by standing on the very corner where in 1787, delegates to Delaware’s Constitutional Convention ratified the U.S. Constitution – thus giving Delaware its “First State” moniker. The area’s collection of small towns as well as the natural beauty of places such as Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, provide hours of fun and adventure for visitors of all ages. Dover’s central location in Delaware makes Kent County the perfect place for regional meetings and conventions, and a great overnight destination for tours of the state. Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley attractions are only one hour’s drive to the north. Delaware’s beach resorts, including Lewes, Bethany, and Rehoboth, are only one hour’s drive to the south. Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. are all within a two-hour drive. Kent County puts you right in the middle of the charm and excitement of “America at its Best.”

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE

Dover Air Force Base is important to the country’s defense, as it represents one-fourth of the nation’s strategic airlift capacity. Approximately 7,000 people are stationed at the DAFB. Dover is home to 36 giant C-5 Galaxy cargo planes, which are used to transport troops and equipment wherever they are needed around the world. The C-5 is the largest airplane in the U.S. military. Each plane is nearly as long as a football field, and could carry six motor coaches in its hold. The base cargo terminal known as the “Superport” is the largest anywhere in the US military, processing more tons of cargo than Kennedy airport in NY. The Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum on the DAFB has over 24 aircraft on display, and features more multi-engine aircraft than the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. Veteran aircraft on display include a C-47 “Gooney Bird” that dropped paratroopers over Normandy on D-Day.

The Dover Symphony Orchestra is a regional organization founded in 1967 and comprised of professional and amateur musicians of all ages.

The Delaware Bay, just East of Dover, offers some of the best fishing and crabbing in the region. The bay serves as a breeding ground for many aquatic species, including horseshoe crabs. The bay is also a prime oyster ground. The area also features first-rate golf courses, bike trails, scenic paths, boating, state parks, conservation areas, lakes and greenways.

EVENTS The Old Dover Days Festival has existed in one form or another in the capital city since 1933. It is held on The Green and Legislative Mall, two beautiful outdoor parks in the historic downtown district. Traditional elements and new components bring in thousands of visitors each year with attendance reaching 15,000. Old Dover Days is a celebration of the First State’s Capital City and features a parade, maypole dancing, food court, re-enactors, walking tours, free entertainment and much more. The Amish Bike Tour, African-American Festival, Delmarva Folk Festival, Jazz & Blues Festival, Diamond State BBQ Championship and Wyoming Peach Festival are other events that bring thousands to Central Delaware each year.

The Johnson Victrola museum is a tribute to Delaware’s native son, Eldridge Reeves Johnson, who founded the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1901. Exhibits include phonographs, recordings, memorabilia, trademarks, objects, and paintings that highlight Mr. Johnson’s successful business enterprises and chronicle the development of the sound-recording industry. In 2004, under the leadership of Board Chair Dr. Scott D. Miller (President of Wesley College), a strategic alliance was formed to partner the resources of Wesley College, Delaware State University, and The Friends of the Capital Theater, to maximize usage and position the historic treasure as the premiere performing arts center south of Wilmington. In January 2007, the relationship was formalized with the three becoming equal partners in the operation, management and programming of the Center.

DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Dover Downs International Speedway hosts two NASCAR Sprint Cup/Nationwide Series race weekends each year. Dover has the largest seating capacity (140,000 seats) of any sports facility between New York and the Carolinas. The “Monster Mile” has challenged many professional drivers as they compete for the checkered flag. The concrete track with 24 degree banking is the first and only concrete superspeedway in NASCAR history, providing awesome racing action. NASCAR weekends at Dover are typically scheduled for the second weekend in May and the fourth weekend in September. Qualifying takes place on Friday, Nationwide Series drivers race on Saturday, and the Sprint Cup stars race on Sunday. Dover Downs, along with nearby Harrington Raceway, also features top flight harness racing.
