EIU’s athletic philosophy is steadfast and simple: student FIRST ... athlete SECOND. To ensure that commitment, the athletic department has established support services to assist student-athletes during their collegiate competitive experience. The EIU Academic Services staff provides students with academic guidance in regard to class scheduling and registration; declaration and selection of a major; degree and eligibility requirements; tutorial services; financial aid; and overall academic procedures. COUNSELING SERVICES Members of the Academic Services Office staff meet with individual student-athletes on a variety of academic, athletic, career and personal issues. Time is also spent helping individuals improve time management, study skills, and assignment preparation. When necessary and appropriate, student-athletes are referred to specialized resources and services, both on and off-campus. TUTORING SERVICES A variety of tutors are available through the academic departments on campus and are free of charge. ACADEMIC CENTER In November of 2006, Eastern Illinois completed its new Academic Services Center which provides a study and academic help center for Panther student-athletes. The center provides a quiet study area for student-athletes, a computer lab and academic work area. The center also houses the EIU Academic Services staff for quick access by EIU athletes.

Eastern is again ranked 14th among all Midwestern public universities offering a full range of undergraduate degrees and some master’s degree programs. The region encompasses Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The rankings – part of the magazine’s 2009 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” – are based on schools’ academic reputations, student selectivity, faculty resources, graduation and retention rates, financial resources and alumni giving. The numbers show that EIU has retained its focus on personal attention. For example, the student-faculty ratio dropped to 15:1 and only 4 percent of all classes have 50 or more students. In addition, EIU touts the highest freshman retention rate and the highest graduation rate among all Illinois public universities in its class.

EASTERN ILLINOIS HEAD COACH MIKE MILLER Eastern Illinois University head coach Mike Miller has a history of turning programs around and as he enters his sixth season at the helm of the Panthers program he appears to have the fortunes of the EIU program headed in the right direction. EIU is coming off its first winning season since 2001 with a 19-12 mark as the Panthers won eight straight games to close the season before falling to Murray State in the OVC Tournament semifinals. The 19 wins by EIU marked the third highest win total in the Division I history of the program while eight straight wins during an undefeated February set the school Division I record for consecutive wins. Tyler Laser was a first team All-OVC selection becoming the first EIU player since 2003 to earn that distinction while James Hollowell was named to the OVC All-Newcomer squad. This season EIU returns its three top scorers in senior Laser, junior Jeremy Granger and redshirt sophomore Hollowell to form a nucleus for Miller to build around. Fans could see the fortunes of the program starting to change in 2009 as the Panthers lost in final seconds of the OVC Tournament first round to No. 3 seed Austin Peay playing with only one senior on the roster. Hired in mid-April of 2005 after five years as the associate head coach at Kansas State University, Miller has already produced two Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year in his short tenure at EIU. In addition his first full recruiting class in 2006 was rated as the best in the OVC by HoopScoop.com while also ranking in the Top 100 recruiting classes nationally. The Panthers 2008 recruiting class was ranked second in the OVC by HoopScoop.com and

61st nationally. Among the seven new faces Miller and his staff were able to bring in among that top class were the school’s first freshman to lead the program in scoring in the NCAA Division I era in Romain Martin and only the second freshman to lead the team in rebounding as a NCAA Division I school in Ousmane Cisse. Cisse would finish his career as the fourth leading rebounder in EIU history and stands tied for first in career games played at EIU. Originally from Monmouth, Illinois, Miller has always had ties to the deep tradition of basketball in the State of Illinois and surrounding region. He and his staff (all local products themselves) have emphasized getting the best talent in the area that fits their system. The Panthers have succeeded in building their roster with a combination of All-State Illinois products along with top players from the surrounding states of Indiana, Iowa and Michigan. During his tenure at Kansas State, Miller helped the team improve from an 11-18 record his first season to a 17-12 mark in 200405. That season the Wildcats started three sophomores and a “true” freshman, and had six wins over teams that advanced to post season tournaments. During that same time frame 10 of 14 seniors who completed their eligibility earned degrees with five players earning Academic All-Big 12 honors. Miller also served as one of K-State’s top recruiters with the Wildcats having three straight Top 25 recruiting classes as named by Hoop Scoop magazine. The 2002 class was rated No. 1 in the nation. No stranger to building programs, Miller helped revitalize the program at Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State) during nine years of association with the program. He started as an assistant in 1991-92 as 26 All-Conference Picks the Bobcats won only 7 games. The team finished above .500 his second year on the staff and went 25-7 in 1993-94 during his third season setting 2 Southland Conference Tournament MVP's a school record for wins and a spot in the 1994 NCAA Tournament. Southland Conference Player Of The Year The next season Miller was named the head coach at Texas State Donte Mathis becoming the second youngest Division I head coach at the age of 29. Over the next six seasons as the Bobcats head man, Miller won two First Team All-OVC conference championships in 1997 and 1999 and finished second in Tyler Laser (2010) 1998. The 1997 team advanced to the NCAA Tournament by winning the Southland Conference Tournament, Miller winning SLC Coach of the Year OVC Freshman of the Year honors. Romain Martin (2007) Mike Robinson (2006) Six players would earn Academic All-Southland Conference honors during his tenure and in 1999 Jeff Foster would be selected in the first round OVC All-Newcomer Team of the NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. Miller’s teams led the Southland James Hollowell (2010) Conference in defense five of six seasons and ranked third in the NCAA T.J. Marion (2009) in 1999 allowing opponents to shoot only 37.3 percent from the floor. Miller also has assistant coaching stops at Sam Houston State in 1991 Jeff Foster and Western Illinois in 1990. 1999 1st Round Draft Pick (Golden State Warriors) A graduate of Monmouth (IL) High School, Miller played basketball at Cartier Martin East Texas State. He was a member of the East Texas State team that Free Agent Signee - (Washington Wizards) won the 1984 Lone Star Conference championship. Miller graduated from East Texas State in 1987.

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

GOING DANCING IN 1992 'DREAMS DO COME TRUE' “You coach this sport with a dream to get to the NCAA tournament... athletes play this sport with a dream to reach the NCAA tournament... and here at Eastern Illinois University ... dreams do come true!” That quote was delivered by head coach Rick Samuels to a cheering throng of fans in Lantz Arena as they welcomed home the Mid-Continent Conference tournament champion Panthers, who advanced to the NCAA Division I tournament for the first time in school history. Five seniors, the heart-and-soul of the team, knocked off Wright State in the first round, upset heavily favored regular-season champion Wisconsin-Green Bay in the semifinals, and then controlled the game from the outset to defeat Illinois-Chicago in the title game of the tournament. The five seniors were Barry Johnson, three-time Honorable Mention All-Midwest; Steve Rowe, tournament MVP; Dave Olson, most prolific three point shooter in Mid-Con history; Kavien Martin, team leader as the point guard; and Rod McKinnis, who provided the inspiration after a season ending knee injury. The team was honored by Governor Jim Edgar (EIU Class of ’68), the state legislature at the Illinois capital building, as well as welcomed by the Charleston community and members of the University. The Panthers lost to the Indiana Hoosiers, an eventual 'Final Four' participant, in the first round of the West Regional in Boise, Idaho.

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

SEASON TO REMEMBER IN 2001 CRASHING THE 'BIG DANCE' ... A HISTORIC TIMELINE January 6 Coach Rick Samuels won his 300th career game as EIU nipped Tennessee State, 99-98, in Nashville behind senior Kyle Hill's 22 points. February 3 It was standing room only in Lantz as over 5,000 screaming fans witnessed Kyle Hill's last-second basket lift the Panthers past Austin Peay, 80-78. February 27 EIU went undefeated at home for the first time in 50 years as the Panthers defeated Morehead State, 10280, in a first-round game of the OVC tournament. March 2 The Panthers became the first team in 11 years to keep Murray State out of the OVC tournament championship game by winning the semifinal, 97-71. March 3 In one of the most dramatic comebacks in collegiate history, the Panthers roared back from an 18-point deficit in the final six minutes to win the OVC tournament championship with an 84-83 victory over arch-rival Austin Peay... sophomore Jan Thompson scored the winning last-second basket on a 'goaltending' call. Midnight on March 4 Over 2,000 fans poured into Lantz Arena to honor the NCAA-bound Panthers with a victory celebration. March 16 Despite Kyle Hill's 32-points, No. 2 Arizona (the eventual national runner-up) ended the 15th-seeded Panthers' trip to the NCAA tournament in the Midwest Regional at Kansas City's Kemper Arena.

1991-92: Eastern qualified for its first appearance in the NCAA Division I tournament by winning the Mid-Continent Conference post-season tournament in Cleveland, Ohio. 1975-76: The 1976 team won 15 straight games during the year before losing to Tennessee-Chattanooga in the semifinals of the NCAA Division II finals, but still finished a best-ever third in the nation.

2000-01: The Panthers reached the NCAA I tournament for the second time in dramatic fashion by coming back from 18 points down with six minutes left to knock off arch-rival Austin Peay in the final of the Ohio Valley Conference post-season tournament in Nashville, Tennessee.

1977-78: Eastern defeats Elizabeth City (NC) College in a NCAA II quarterfinal game, matching the 1976 club by placing third in the nation at Springfield, MO.

THE OHIO VALLEY CONFERENCE Entering its 63rd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles (Turkey) Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In the 1950’s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially. During times of racial segregation, league member Morehead State became one of the first non-traditionally black mid-southern institutions to accept a black student. In 1958, Marshall Banks earned athletically-related aid at Morehead, which signed a second black athlete, Howard Murphy, a year later. In 1961, Murphy earned all-conference recognition as a halfback in football. With racial barriers broken, the rest of the institutions in the league began to provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. In 1955, the OVC became only the second six-member league nationally to earn an automatic bid to the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, which, at that time, was limited to only 24 participants. The conference quickly proved worthy of that bid, as Morehead State defeated Marshall (107-92) and Wayne State (95-84) in the 1956 tournament. Fifteen years later, former OVC member Western Kentucky became the first and only conference team to reach the Final Four. The Hilltoppers defeated Jacksonville, Kentucky and Ohio State before losing to Villanova in double overtime. WKU went on to finish in third place after beating Kansas 77-75 in the consolation game. Since that time, the OVC has recorded some of the biggest upsets in the history of the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps the most famous moment came in 1987, when Austin Peay came from fourth place in the regular season to win the OVC Tournament and earn the league’s automatic bid. The Governors drew powerful Illinois, and were such big underdogs, that ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale promised to stand on his head if APSU won the game. After a 6867 victory over the Illini, and a narrow 90-87 overtime loss to eventual Final Four participant Providence in the second round, Vitale made good on his promise in a visit to Clarksville two months later. Murray State added to the OVC’s string of upsets in 1988 when it knocked off 14th-ranked North Carolina State, 78-75. The Racers’ M&M Boys - Jeff Martin and Don Mann - combined for 39 points in the win. MSU nearly went on to the Sweet 16 that year, losing to eventual national champion Kansas, 61-58. A bank shot by Mann that would’ve given the Racers a one-point lead rolled off the rim with three seconds left. In recent years, Murray State has dominated the OVC Tournament, reaching the championship game every year in the 1990’s and winning the title seven times. Through the past 62 years, 11 teams have won or shared the league’s men’s basketball title. Murray State heads the list with a Conference-record 21 outright or shared basketball crowns. Other past champions include Western Kentucky (19), Morehead State (10), Austin Peay (7), Eastern Kentucky (6), Tennessee Tech (5), former member Middle Tennessee (4), Tennessee State (2) and Southeast Missouri, Eastern Illinois and former members East Tennessee State and Akron with one each. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Entering its 63rd year the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. In 2008 the University of Southern Illinois Edwardsville became the newest member of the league replacing Samford University. Other current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.
