A Brief Richmond History Richmond was founded in 1798 by Colonel John Miller, a Revolutionary War soldier. In 1798, the Kentucky Legislature authorized the moving of the Madison County seat from nearby Milford to land owned by Colonel Miller. The move was bitterly opposed by about 300 residents of the Milford area and a fight to retain the seat resulted between Dave Kennedy, who represented the Milford location, and William Kearly, who represented the new site. Although history does not record the results of the brawl, the county approved the move in March of 1798 and two acres of land were purchased from Colonel Miller. Court was held in his barn. On July 4, 1798, the site was officially named Richmond in honor of Miller’s birthplace, Richmond, Va.

The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green.

season outlook The Eastern Kentucky University men’s basketball team has put together a model of consistency during the last four years under head coach Jeff Neubauer. The goal for the team this year is to continue that consistency – shooting the ball at a high percentage, valuing the basketball and finding ways to win games – while being able to improve on other facets of the game. The Colonels have won at least 10 Ohio Valley Conference games every year under Neubauer’s guidance and captured the 2007 OVC tournament title. Last year, EKU made its presence felt in the national stats as the Colonels ranked among the nation’s top-10 in three-point shooting (40.1 percent), three-pointers made per game (10.3), assist-to-turnover ratio (1.45) and fewest turnovers per game (10.9). “We recruit good shooters because that is very important to who we are,” Neubauer said. Eastern only graduated two players from last year, but one of those players led the team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. That person, two-time All-OVC performer Mike Rose, also happened to lead the nation in three-point shooting at 48.1 percent. “One of the challenges of college basketball is to constantly adjust to the changes on a roster,” Neubauer said. “We had to deal with a few significant injuries last year, including those to Papa Oppong and Dayvon Ellis, which forced us to make numerous adjustments and use multiple combinations on the court. Hopefully, that is something our guys can learn from as they approach this year.” Ryan Wiersma, the other graduate, was a four-year contributor who gave the team a solid low-post presence on defense. “There are some veterans in the program who have grown as competitors in the post,” Neubauer said. “I think the key to our post defense is going to be our perimeter defense. When you can pressure the ball, it makes every other part of your defense better. “We are going to guard the ball better than we have in all of my years here at EKU,” Neubauer continued. “That has been a major focus for our team [in the preseason].” Returning Leaders Two key leaders are back for the Colonels who hope to keep the team among the best in the OVC – senior Josh Taylor and junior Justin Stommes. Taylor and Stommes both averaged more than 10 points per game one year ago while combining to

make 48 percent (226-of-471) of their field goal attempts. Taylor has made 38 starts in his three years and has improved significantly every season. The 6-7 forward plays in the low post on defense, but can step out to hit the three-point shot on the offensive end of the court. As a junior, Taylor finished second on the team in scoring (10.9 ppg), threepointers made (54) and blocks (11). He had

“We had to deal with a few significant injuries last year, including those to Papa Oppong and Dayvon Ellis, which forced us to make numerous adjustments and use multiple combinations on the court. Hopefully, that is something our guys can learn from as they approach this year.” – EKU head coach Jeff Neubauer –

Senior Josh Taylor

a major impact in the 2009 OVC tournament quarterfinal game at Morehead State as he posted a career-high 26 points on 6-of-10 (60 percent) shooting from behind the arc. “Josh is an important shooter and player in our system,” Neubauer said. “This fall, he has shown great senior leadership.” Stommes has been a starter since his freshman season and is now a player who 6

could be contending for postseason honors. The 6-7 guard literally poses a big problem for the opposition as he can be used to bring the ball up the court as a point guard or slide over to the wing and contribute as a scorer. Stommes made 41.9 percent of his three-point attempts last year, which ranked fourth in the league. Late in the season, the junior stepped up his scoring as he reached double figures five times in the final seven games, while shooting 49 percent overall from the floor. “Justin has continually developed as a basketball player,” Neubauer said. “He makes good decisions with the ball and shoots the ball extremely well. We are expecting quite a bit from him this season.” Other Returnees Other key returnees include seniors Dayvon Ellis and Papa Oppong along with sophomores Joshua Jones and Mike Lewis. Senior Robin Mestdagh, junior Antonio Gilkey, redshirt junior Josh Daniel and sophomore Cordaro Ellis provide plenty of depth. Dayvon Ellis and Papa Oppong are both in their second season on the team as they are junior college transfers. Much was expected of the two players in 2008-09, but both suffered mid-year injuries which set them back in their development. Ellis started the first 15 games of the year at point guard before breaking his hand at Austin Peay in early January. He still managed to lead the team with 2.9 assists per game, including at least four assists in nine games. The 6-0 guard chipped in with some scoring as well. Against Akron in a key non-conference game, Ellis recorded a season-best 11 points to go along with five assists. “Dayvon had some great moments last year,” Neubauer said. “He has consistently made good decisions with the ball, but we also need him to be a great defender this year.” Oppong was the team’s leading rebounder until he came down with a shoulder injury in December at Cincinnati. He twice finished a game with nine rebounds including the 71-58 win over Ball State where he was one rebound shy of a double-double. The 6-4 guard from Toronto not only can rebound, but can slash to the basket and drain the outside shot. In the final four games of 2008-09, Oppong connected on 53.3 percent (8-of-15) of his three-point shots. “I was really proud of the way Papa started last year in his transition to Division I basketball,” Neubauer said. “We

season outlook expect him to be a great defender, great rebounder and a great shooter this year. He has shown that he can do all three of those things at this level.” The injuries, especially to Ellis, forced Jones into a starting role for Eastern Kentucky midway through the 2008-09 season. As a freshman, Jones played 792 minutes (25.5 mpg) which was third most on the team. The 6-4 guard exceeded expectations in his new role and played a pivotal part in the win over Tennessee Tech on Jan. 10. Jones led the team with a career-best 25 points while netting 6-of-9 (66.7 percent) field goal attempts in the 85-80 win. “Joshua excelled for us late in the year last year when he was needed,” Neubauer said. “He became a key component to our success and brings a lot of intangibles to the table that teams need to win.” Lewis, a 5-7 point guard, showed flashes of brilliance as a freshman and can expect to see more action this year. The lefty provided a huge spark in the near upset of Big East opponent Cincinnati on Dec. 20. Lewis posted season highs in assists (eight) and rebounds (four) to go along with 11 points in the overtime loss. The eight assists were a team season-high. “We are expecting Mike to take a big step this year,” Neubauer said. “I think he is much more familiar with what the college game is all about and he feels more comfortable competing at this level on a daily basis.”

Senior Papa Oppong

Mestdagh and Daniel are two more players who have the ability to consistently make the three-point shot. Mestdagh, a native of Ieper, Belgium, showed off his shooting touch last year at Southeast Missouri when he netted all four of his threepoint attempts. The 6-4 guard went on to finish with career highs in points (13) and rebounds (four) against the Redhawks. “Robin is an experienced player who has that senior mentality,” Neubauer said. “He’s been an important contributor to the program over the last three years and I can’t wait to see how his senior year plays out.” Daniel took a redshirt season in 200809 to improve his all-around game. As a sophomore, he nailed a three-pointer in 14 games. Newcomers Only two newcomers join the EKU roster this season – freshman Willie Cruz and junior Spencer Perrin. Cruz, a 6-4 guard, played high school basketball at L’Anse Creuse High School, which is just outside of Detroit, Mich. As a senior, Cruz averaged 20 points and nine rebounds per game on his way to earning all-conference, all-metro and honorable mention all-state honors. “Willie is a breath of fresh air,” Neubauer said. “He’s going to be an overachiever at the collegiate level. He’s got a great attitude and great approach to what he’s doing with his life. Obviously for any freshman, it’s a challenge to learn and adjust to a higher level of playing, but we think he can help us this year.” Perrin hails from Danville, Ky., where he played high school basketball for Boyle County as a senior. He led the Rebels with 21 points and 11 rebounds per game in 2006-07 and helped Boyle County reach the 12th Region championship game. The 6-5 forward played the last two seasons at Lake Land College in Mattoon, Ill. “Spencer has shown great determination on the defensive end of the court,” Neubauer said. “He’s one of the more athletic players on our team and we think he can be an exceptional rebounder.” The Schedule Eastern will host 17 games this year, most in program history, as well as travel to perennial top-25 teams in Pittsburgh (Nov. 19) and Maryland (Dec. 12). “I think our guys look forward to playing against teams in the Big East and ACC,” Neubauer said. “We usually play at least two a year and it’s a chance for us to 7

Junior Justin Stommes

play against some of the best teams in the nation.” Eastern’s first game is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 against West Virginia Wesleyan in McBrayer Arena. The Colonels were 12-2 at home one season ago, marking the fourth time in the last six years that EKU has totaled at least 10 home victories. Following the trip to Pitt, a team that reached the 2009 Elite Eight, Eastern Kentucky returns home to host the O’Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic pod from Nov. 2325. McBrayer Arena will host doubleheaders for three consecutive nights featuring EKU, Fairleigh Dickinson, UC Irvine and UTSA in a round-robin format. Eastern Kentucky tips off the 18-game OVC schedule on Dec. 3 at Murray State. The Colonels host rival and defending OVC tournament champion Morehead State on Jan. 23. The OVC tournament will once again include only the top eight teams and begin on March 2. The Sommet Center in Nashville, Tenn., will host the OVC tournament semifinals (March 5) and championship game (March 6).

coaching staff Jeff Neubauer Title: Head Coach Year at EKU: Fifth Season (67-57) Alma Mater: La Salle University, 1993

2009-10 EKU Basketball k b ll

The 2009-10 season will be Jeff Neubauer’s fifth year as head coach at Eastern Kentucky University. The Colonels have tallied at least 10 conference victories every year under Neubauer including the 200607 season when EKU reached the 20-win plateau for the sixth time in program history and earned a spot in the 2007 NCAA Tournament. EKU accomplished both of those feats without a first team all-conference player on its roster. “We have been very fortunate here at EKU to attract and coach a group of outstanding young men,” Neubauer said. “We have been incredibly pleased with the way that our teams have competed and represented the University throughout our first four years. It is our intention to continue to build on the unselfishness and consistency that we have continually encouraged here at EKU.” Neubauer, 38, coached his 100th game last December at Murray State. Eastern Kentucky went on to finish the 2008-09 campaign among the top 10 Division I schools nationally in three-point shooting (ninth at 40.1 percent), three-pointers made per game (second with 10.3 per game) and fewest turnovers per game (seventh at 10.9). The Colonels were especially impressive against opponents from the Mid-American Conference (MAC) last year with victories

over Ball State, Ohio and NCAA Tournament participant, Akron. Under Neubauer’s guidance, the Colonels went on an amazing run at the end of 2006-07, winning 11 of 13 games to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament. During that stretch, EKU shot 47.5 percent from the floor while holding the opposition to just 59.8 points per game. The 2006-07 Eastern Kentucky team led the nation in fewest fouls per game (13.6) and also paced the Ohio Valley Conference in field goal percentage (46.2). In his first season as head coach, Neubauer and the 2005-06 Colonels qualified for the season-ending OVC Tournament. Along the way, EKU tallied five conference road victories, the most by an Eastern squad in over 30 years. The Colonels nearly pulled off a dramatic upset over Big Ten opponent Wisconsin at the Paradise Jam tournament in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but fell to the Badgers in double-overtime. Neubauer has coached five all-confer-

ence players, an OVC Co-Freshman of the Year, an OVC Tournament MVP and the program’s top two all-time leading scorers in his four years at Eastern Kentucky. Before arriving at Eastern Kentucky, Neubauer served three seasons as the top assistant at West Virginia under head coach John Beilein where he helped fuel the Mountaineers’ rapid rise to national prominence. The rebuilding process at West Virginia culminated in the Mountaineers’ dramatic run through the 2005 NCAA Tournament. WVU earned triumphs over five top-20 programs in the regular season that year before reaching the Big East Tournament’s championship game. Then, after upsetting second-seeded Wake Forest in double overtime in the NCAA Tournament’s second round, the Mountaineers knocked off Bobby Knight’s Texas Tech team in the Sweet 16. The spirited march came to a halt when the University of Louisville prevailed in overtime to complete a highly-contested Elite Eight battle. West Virginia finished 2004-05 ranked 12th in the country. In 2003-04, West Virginia secured its first NIT victories since 1997 while also defeating a pair of nationally-ranked opponents. Neubauer followed Beilein to Morgantown, W.Va., in 2002 after the two enjoyed similar success together for five years at the University of Richmond, where the Spiders won 100 games. While at Richmond, Neubauer helped recruit and coach numerous all-conference players, a pair of league

rookies of the year, a conference player of the year and a student-athlete of the year. In Neubauer’s second season at Richmond, the Spiders qualified for the NCAA Tournament and then proceeded to surprise SEC foe South Carolina in the opening round, 62-61. Richmond earned a winning record in five of the six years Neubauer was on staff while notching NIT victories in both 2001 and 2002. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I’ve had a lot of assistants, and Jeff’s basketball IQ is just terrific,” Beilein said. “He understands the game and is not afraid to be innovative, but he also knows how important it is to be fundamentally sound.” Prior to Richmond, Neubauer served three seasons as a graduate assistant coach at The Citadel, where he also earned an MBA degree. A native of Slidell, La., Neubauer was an outstanding student-athlete at La Salle University in Philadelphia, where he played point guard under head coach William “Speedy” Morris. The Explorers went 30-2 and earned an NCAA Tournament berth in Neubauer’s freshman season. La Salle accumulated two more post-season berths and an overall record of 83-36 during his four years on the squad. Neubauer, team captain as a senior, earned honorable mention GTE All-Academic accolades as a cum laude graduate in finance. He is married to the former Karen Feret of Hackettstown, N.J.

“Give Eastern Kentucky credit because they kicked us for about 12 to 14 minutes there and we were on our heels offensively. We were turning the basketball over and we could not stop them defensively.” – Roy Williams – North Carolina head basketball coach After EKU went on a 32-9 run midway through the game in the first round of the 2007 NCAA Tournament

“I watched Jeff through the years as an assistant at The Citadel, Richmond and West Virginia, and he has all of the tools to be an outstanding head coach. Jeff understands the game, how it should be played, and he knows how to teach it. Under Jeff Neubauer, all five guys will play as one on both ends of the floor, and they will be disciplined and hard to beat. Eastern Kentucky hired one heck of a coach in Jeff Neubauer.” – Jay Bilas – ESPN basketball analyst

“Jeff is refreshing and great for the business. He’s a man full of integrity, workethic and he’s passionate for the game of collegiate basketball. He will never get out-worked, he will be totally dedicated to EKU and he will find a way to get his team into the NCAA Tourney!” – Joe Mihalich – Niagara head basketball coach

“He understands the game and is not afraid to be innovative, but he also knows how important it is to be fundamentally sound. [Colonel supporters] are really going to be pleased. He is absolutely ready, and he’ll do it the right way.” – John Beilein – Michigan head basketball coach

coaching staff Ted Hotaling Title: Assistant Coach Year at EKU: Fifth Season Alma Mater: SUNY-Albany, 1995

2009-10 EKU U Basketball Basket ketba ball

Fifth-year assistant coach Ted Hotaling came to Eastern Kentucky from Yale, where he served as a full-time assistant to head coach James Jones for four seasons. His main duties at EKU include working with the guard players and coordinating all of the recruiting efforts.

“I got a slam dunk with Ted. He had been the recruiting coordinator for Yale for four years … he can go all over the country to find talented players to bring to EKU.” – Coach Neubauer –

Hotaling began his coaching career at Adelphi in 1998-99. After spending a year with the Panthers, he moved on to Yale as a volunteer assistant for the 1999-00 campaign. In between stints at Yale, Hotaling worked for one year as a full time assistant coach at the University of New Haven. Hotaling played collegiate basketball at Albany, and helped lead the Great Danes to an Elite Eight appearance in the 1994 NCAA Division III Tournament. During his senior year of 1994-95, Hotaling served as the team’s captain and helped guide the team into the second round of the Division III national tourney. The native of Niverville, N.Y., went on to play professionally in Europe for the Cardiff Phoenix Basketball Club in Cardiff, Wales, and the Plymouth Rotolok Raiders in Plymouth, England. Hotaling earned a bachelor of arts degree in history from Albany in 1995, and went on to garner a master’s in sports management and administration from Adelphi. “I got a slam dunk with Ted,” coach Neubauer said. “He had been the recruiting coordinator at Yale for four years. Recruiting student-athletes at Yale meant not being bound by any one territory when you’re out looking for players, so he can go all over the country to find talented players to bring to Eastern Kentucky.” Hotaling and his wife, Keely Garden, have two children – Owen and Susan. They reside in Richmond.

eku president Dr. Doug Whitlock Title: University President Year at EKU: Third year Alma Mater: Eastern Kentucky, 1965, ’66

Dr. Doug Whitlock’s love affair with Eastern began when he arrived on his hometown campus as a first-generation undergraduate student in 1961. It continued unabated throughout a 38-year career in various administrative and teaching roles at EKU, including a five-year stint as Vice President for Administrative Affairs, from 1998-2003. His last three years of service were as a half-time faculty member in the Department of Computer Science. As he addressed faculty and staff at a campus-wide convocation on Aug. 15, 2007, just two days after being named President for the interim, Dr. Whitlock recalled the tremendous difference the institution he cherishes has made in his own life. (The Eastern faculty) “largely made me what I was then and am now,” he said.

In February 2009, Dr. Whitlock was on hand at the State Capitol to announce the partnership between Eastern Kentucky University and General Atomics to examine the potential for a cellulose-derived biodiesel fuel industry in Kentucky.

“I will admit to you that I love Eastern, and when my service in the presidency is finished, if I have helped more of you love her too, then I will have done my job.”

After two years of active duty with the U.S. Army, Dr. Whitlock returned to Eastern in 1968 to serve as Director of Publications. Three years later, he was named Director of Public Information. In 1976, he was tapped by President J.C. Powell to serve as Executive Assistant to the President, continuing in that role through the administration of President Hanly Funderburk. As Vice President for Administrative Affairs, Dr. Whitlock was responsible for Facilities Services, Public Safety, Information Technology and Delivery Systems, Media Resources, and University Farms. For a portion of his tenure, he also served as the institution’s chief financial officer. Dr. Whitlock has long been an active participant in community life, serving since 1999 on the Madison County School Board, including two terms as chair. He also has served as a consultant with the Kentucky School Boards Association. He is an Elder and past board chair in the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He and his wife, Joanne, have been married 39 years and have two grown children, Robert and Janet. At his first convocation as President, Dr. Whitlock offered faculty and staff one gauge by which his stint as President may be judged: “I will admit to you that I love Eastern, and when my service in the presidency is finished, if I have helped more of you love her too, then I will have done my job.”

– President Whitlock – On Oct. 22, 2007, the interim label was removed and now, as EKU’s 11th President, Dr. Whitlock is devoted to upholding the rich tradition of his alma mater while guiding her to even greater heights of excellence. After earning two degrees from Eastern – a bachelor’s degree in history and social science in 1965 and a master’s degree in history a year later – Dr. Whitlock earned his doctoral degree in higher education from the University of Kentucky in 1981.

Did You Know … … Dr. Whitlock holds two degrees from Eastern Kentucky University – a bachelor’s degree in history and social science as well as a master’s degree in history.

The 2008-09 season was filled with both ups and downs for the Eastern Kentucky University basketball team, but in the end the Colonels qualified for the seasonending OVC tournament for the seventh consecutive season. Below are some more highlights from the 2008-09 campaign … Nation’s Best in Three-Point Shooting

Mike Rose concluded the 2008-09 men’s basketball season as the top three-point shooter in the nation according to NCAA statistics. He finished the year shooting 48.1 percent from behind the arc. Rose made at least one three-pointer in 27 of the 31 games. The native of Naperville, Ill., averaged 3.2 three-pointers made per game and tied a program record by netting seven trifectas at Eastern Illinois on Jan. 15. Rose went on to hit the gamewinning three-pointers in back-to-back games at Southeast Missouri (Jan. 17) and Chicago State (Jan. 20). He twice finished 6-for-8 (75 percent) from behind the arc in wins over Winston-Salem State (Nov. 18) and Tennessee Tech (Feb. 5). Other National Stats

As a team in 2008-09, the Colonels averaged 10.3 three-pointers made per game which ranked second nationally. Eastern Kentucky also finished among the top-10 nationally in three-point field goal percentage (40.1 percent – ninth) and fewest turnovers per game (10.9 – seventh). All-OVC Honors

Mike Rose was the first Colonel since 1980 to earn back-to-back first team AllOVC honors. The guard was one of just 10

players nationally to lead his team in scoring (20.0 ppg), rebounding (5.3 rpg), assists (79) and steals (53). Rose scored 20 or more points 18 times during the season, including a career-high 33 points in a win over Covenant College on Dec. 9. Rose concluded his Eastern Kentucky career second on the program’s all-time scoring list (1,763 points) and threepointers made list (271). He appeared in a program-record 124 games throughout his collegiate career, with 110 starts, and never missed a game due to injury. The 2007 OVC tournament MVP tallied five career double-doubles and was named OVC Player of the Week three times. This was the fourth time in the last five years a Colonel was named to the All-OVC first team. Double-Digit OVC Victories

Eastern Kentucky went 10-8 against conference competition, marking the fifth straight year the Colonels have posted double-figure league victories. Only Murray State (six) has a longer active streak. Home, Sweet Home

Eastern went 12-2 in the friendly confines of McBrayer Arena and won its final eight home games. It has been 18 years since the Maroons posted more home victories (14-0 in 1990-91). In OVC action, the Colonels finished with an 8-1 home record. The eight victories are the most home OVC wins for EKU in a season since 1992-93 (eight).

Jones started 22 games at the point guard position and finished with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5. Lewis played an integral role in the near upset over Big East opponent Cincinnati with 11 points and eight assists. ESPNU BracketBusters Victory

On Feb. 21, EKU participated in the ESPNU BracketBusters series for the fourth time. Behind a convincing 73-51 victory over Ohio, the Colonels moved to 2-2 in BracketBuster games. EKU vs. the MAC

The Colonels went 3-0 against MidAmerican Conference (MAC) opponents including a 69-57 win over Akron, which went on to win the MAC tournament title and advance to the NCAA tournament. Shooting = Success

The Colonels went 10-0 in 2008-09 when shooting at least 50 percent from the floor and 16-3 when shooting a better percentage than the opposition. Mestdagh Shines at SEMO

Robin Mestdagh came off the bench to chip in with a career-high 13 points at Southeast Missouri on Jan. 17. Up to that point, Mestdagh had scored 14 points all season. He became the sixth Colonel this season to make at least four three-pointers in a game. The guard was 4-for-4 from behind the arc.

EKU netted a season-high 55.2 percent (16-of-29) of its three-point attempts against Eastern Illinois on Feb. 14. The 16 three-pointers equaled the most made in a game by the Colonels in the four years under head coach Jeff Neubauer. Colonels vs. Former Colonel

When EKU hosted Winston-Salem State on Nov. 18, the Colonels faced off against former Colonel Bobby Collins (1984-88). Collins completed his third year as head coach at WSSU in 2008-09.

ohio valley conference Entering its 62nd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. In 2008, for only the second time in the past decade, the Beth De Bauche OVC Commissioner Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since Kyle Schwartz expanding to the state OVC Media Relations of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. 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 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 68-67 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 14thranked 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. The Racers’ 13 OVC Tournament Championships are the most among all OVC schools. Through its 61 years, 12 teams have won or shared the league’s men’s basketball title. Murray State heads the list with a Conference-record 20 outright or shared basketball crowns. Other past champions include former member Western Kentucky (19), Morehead State (9), Austin Peay (8), Eastern Kentucky (6), Tennessee Tech (5), former member Middle Tennessee (5), Tennessee State (2), former member East Tennessee State (2), Southeast Missouri State (1), UT Martin (1) and former member Akron (1). Among the coaching greats in men’s basketball have been Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle, who retired with 759 victories and 10 OVC titles; John Oldham, who was a member of the very first All-OVC squad and went on to win seven OVC crowns during his coaching tenure at Tennessee Tech and Western Kentucky; Paul McBrayer, who guided Eastern Kentucky to 219 wins and three OVC crowns; and Cal Luther, who is the only person in ConferOVC All-Time Member List University of Akron Austin Peay State University East Tennessee State University Eastern Illinois University Eastern Kentucky University University of Evansville Jacksonville State University University of Louisville Marshall University Middle Tennessee State University Morehead State University Murray State University Samford University Southeast Missouri State University Southern Illinois Univ.

ence history to win men’s basketball Coach of the Year honors at two league schools – Murray State and UT Martin. There have been an equal number of great players including Western Kentucky’s Clem Haskins, who is the only three-time OVC Player of the Year. Several players have won OVC Player of the Year honors twice: Western Kentucky’s Jim McDaniels (1969-70 and 1970-71), Murray State’s Les Taylor (1971-72, 1972-73), Jeff Martin (1987-88, 1988-89), Popeye Jones (1989-90, 1990-91) and Marcus Brown (1994-95, 199596), Austin Peay’s Otis Howard (1976-77, 1977-78), Middle Tennessee’s Jerry Beck (1980-81, 1981-82), Akron’s Joe Jakubick (1982-83, 1983-84), Tennessee State’s Carlos Rogers (1992-93, 1993-94) and UT Martin’s Lester Hudson (2007-08, 2008-09). The OVC also has the honor of being the only conference to boast the nation’s leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists all in one season. That feat was accomplished in 1991-92 by Morehead State’s Brett Roberts (28.1 ppg), Murray State’s Popeye Jones (14.4 rpg) and Tennessee Tech’s Van Usher (8.8 apg). In 2007-08, UT Martin’s Lester Hudson became the first men’s Division I player to record a quadruple-double in a game, when he registered 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a victory over Central Bapist College. 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.

alumni coliseum EKU in McBrayer Arena

Alumni Coliseum (Paul S. McBrayer Arena) has been the home arena for Eastern Kentucky University basketball since the 1963-64 season when the team moved from the Weaver Health Building where it had a record of 225-51 in the previous 31 years. Located on a southern slope of the EKU campus, Alumni Coliseum forms the nucleus of a thoughtfully-planned sports complex. The Coliseum is a massive physical plant and features a great triumph in architectural design with its wooden laminated cross-arched roof — the world’s largest of its kind — spanning 309 feet and providing an unobstructed view of events held in the main auditorium. A total of 616,276 board feet of lumber form the 170 beams and roof, which arches gracefully 81 feet above the floor level. The wood is southern

pine finished in its natural beauty. In addition to the main auditorium, which seats 6,500 for basketball games and 8,000 for other programs, the building contains four basketball courts in an auxiliary gymnasium on the east end, numerous athletics offices, both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, shower and locker rooms, a projection room, an athletic training room and a weight room. A hydraulicoperated stage is located at the east end of the main arena floor.

Before the start of the 2006-07 season, the basketball floor was redone with new Eastern athletic logos, brand new scoreboards were added above the north and south bleachers and new shot clocks were installed above the basketball rims. The arena lighting was updated prior to the start of the 2009-10 campaign.

1953 – 16-9, 9-1 (East Regional) 1st Rnd Notre Dame

six-minute span, the Tar Heels turned the ball over five times and managed to get off just two shots. Eastern Kentucky scored the first seven points of the second half, cutting its deficit to single digits (47-39) off a Julian Mascoll fastbreak dunk, before a reverse lay-up from Mike Rose got the Colonels within four (48-44) just prior to the first media timeout. North Carolina responded with seven straight points to keep control of the contest. From there, the Tar Heels put together a few more runs to pull away from the Colonels.

(Fort Wayne, Ind.)

Notes: The Maroons were forced to play without leading scorer Elmer Tolson and captain Bill Bales who were ineligible because of playing varsity ball as freshmen.

coaching history Paul McBrayer 219-144 (.603)

1946-62

McBrayer, who coached at EKU from 1946-62, is the winningest coach in Eastern history. For his achievements in college athletics, he was inducted into the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame in 1987 and more recently, into the inaugural class of the EKU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2006. A native of Anderson County, Ky., and 1930 All-American guard at the University of Kentucky, the veteran cage coach guided the Maroons from the “small college” status to a nationally-recognized basketball power. McBrayer immediately produced at EKU as he guided Eastern to 11 consecutive victories to begin the 1946-47 season. That team went on to finish 21-4. Two years later, Eastern Kentucky climbed to 24th in the national polls before the 1949-50 squad missed by a mere half point of finishing in the nation’s top 10 as it compiled a 16-6 record. During his 16 seasons at Eastern, McBrayer-coached teams won three Ohio Valley Conference regular season titles and made two trips to the NCAA Tournament, losing games to Notre Dame and Louisville. The arena inside Alumni Coliseum was formally dedicated “Paul S. McBrayer Arena” on Jan. 14, 1989.

On Dec. 14, 2005, Eastern Kentucky University announced the creation of an Athletics Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame’s mission is to commemorate and honor student-athletes, other individuals and teams whose accomplishments have contributed to the esteemed tradition of Colonel Athletics and whose character has reflected positively on the University. The inaugural class of the EKU Athletics Hall of Fame, featuring 38 distinguished individuals, was inducted during an evening ceremony on Nov. 3, 2006, in the Keen Johnson Ballroom. Almost 300 people attended the induction ceremony. The honorees were also recognized prior to EKU’s home football game against Murray State the following day. The inaugural class was comprised of The Founders, a group of 25 who were previously honored at the 1974 Centennial Athletics Awards Banquet, and 13 members who were chosen by a selection committee. The Department of Athletics accepts nominations for the Hall of Fame on a rolling basis. Nominations must be received by March 1 to be considered for that year’s class.

This year’s induction ceremony was held on Friday, Oct. 30 with the inductees also honored the next day at the home football game against Southeast Missouri. Please visit www.EKUSports.com for more details or a nomination form.

Eddie Bodkin, a three-time All-OVC performer, was inducted into the EKU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2007.

History of the Colonel

Ralph Richardson (#35) patrolled the paint for coach Paul McBrayer from 1959-61.

Eastern Kentucky University athletic teams were known as the Maroons until 1966 and even survived one attempt to alter the school mascot to the Leopards. In 1963, Eastern Kentucky University President Robert Martin was at a loss as to how he could create a physical “Maroon” to excite the audience. A man of vision and intelligence, Martin began searching for a mascot that would embody the glorious Bluegrass State. He found it in the honorable Kentucky Colonel. The military title of “Colonel” had begun being used as an honorary title in the state by the late 1800s and by 1931 the now-famous Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels had been formed. The finger-lickin’ Colonel Harlan D. Sanders himself was inducted in 1935. Like Minutemen of Massachusetts and Sooners of Oklahoma, the Kentucky breed of Colonel was a unique symbol of the state and so Martin selected it to accompany the school color as Eastern’s mascot.

Further cementing the connection with Eastern was the fact that Centre College’s mascot was already the Colonel and a faction of that school had occupied the Richmond campus before Eastern’s founding. --Courtesy of The Eastern Progress

EKU unveiled a new set of athletic logos in the spring of 2006 and followed by designing a new mascot that was ready for the 2006 football season.

Radio Coverage Radio station WCYO (100.7 on the FM dial) will serve as the flagship station for the 2009-10 EKU Basketball Network. WCYO “The Coyote” is the flagship station for Wallingford Broadcasting of Richmond and Irvine. With 25,000 watts of power, The Coyote signal reaches more than 625,000 people. This year’s broadcast team will again be headed by longtime play-by-play announcer Greg Stotelmyer, who will be serving his 26th season as “The Voice of the Colonels” and his 30th season overall covering EKU basketball. Stotelmyer has been employed the past 22 years as a reporter for WTVQ-TV in Lexington and also serves as the producer and host for the Coach Jeff Neubauer Show and Coach Dean Hood Show seen on Channel 36.

www.EKUSports.com Eastern Kentucky’s Athletic Department unveiled its new web site in the summer of 2008. The site, which is powered by Internet Consulting Services, features the latest news on all the EKU athletic teams. Live stats, feature stories, rosters, photo galleries and up-to-date schedules are just a few of the things that can be easily accessed through the site. The site also features streaming audio for each basketball game, streaming video for all home games, press conference video clips and breaking news as it happens. Fans can also sign up for an e-mail newsletter service through the site that will allow them to stay up-to-date on all their favorite Colonel squads. Perhaps the best feature for EKU fans is the fact that audio from all men’s basketball games will be streamed live via www. EKUSports.com at no charge to the fan.
