During the summer of 2008, ESPN.com released what it called the nation’s “Prestige Ranking,” which attempts to rank the most prestigious programs in the country based on several categories such as NCAA and NIT appearances, conference championships, 20-win seasons and All-America players. ESPN used just the modern era – which it described as 1984 to present. ETSU ranked in the Top 30 percent of the nation’s 300-plus programs, finishing 82nd on the list and well ahead of many programs from mid-major and major conferences. The Bucs finished ahead of major conference teams such as Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, DePaul, Clemson, California and Florida, as well as mid-major rivals Appalachian State, Western Carolina, Georgia Southern and UNC Greensboro, and every Atlantic Sun Conference School.


ETSU Experience

The Experience ... At East Tennessee State University, the opportunity to play basketball brings with it more than a chance to win basketball games and earn NCAA Tournament Appearances . . . 1968, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 2003, 2004, 2009 4

a degree. In addition, there are the experiences of reaching out to the community through visits to area hospitals, seeing the world during travels throughout the season, and acting as university ambassadors at major sports venues such as Bristol Motor Speedway. “Playing basketball at ETSU gives our players the chance to improve their athletic skills, but it is much more than that,” said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow. “It’s also about growing as a person, and becoming a well-rounded member of society. It’s about building relationships with teammates, coaches, and staff. “It’s about becoming a better person.”

Memorial Center

NCAA Tournament Appearances . . . 1968, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 2003, 2004, 2009

With the exception of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains surrounding the city, perhaps the most dominant landmark in Johnson City, Tenn., and certainly on the ETSU campus, is Memorial Center, better known as the Mini-Dome. The Dome has been the home of Buccaneer basketball for the past 32 years. Home has definitely been sweet for ETSU since the facility was first used in 1977. The Buccaneers have won over 70 percent of their games in the Mini-Dome and have won over 76 percent of their games at home since 1988-89. The Bucs went 12-0 in Memorial Center during the 2003-04 season, 16-3 there in 2006-07, and 11-2 both in 2007-08 and 2008-09. Twice each year, the facility is transformed into a first-class indoor track facility. ETSU annually plays host to an international track meet which has ranked as one of the top indoor track meets in the country. The MiniDome also continues to serve as the site of the Atlantic Sun Conference Indoor Track Championship. In addition, the Dome also serves as the home of the Buccaneer tennis teams in various tournaments and dual matches during the season. The Dome offers players and spectators the comforts of 78-degree temperatures in the winter and cool 68-degree marks in the warm summer months. The climate is maintained by 1,140 tons of air conditioning, provided by the university’s chiller plant and by steam heat from the campus power plant. The facilities housed within the Mini-Dome include the main basketball floor, Gentry Field, two auxiliary basketball courts, a six-lane, 280-meter track, six racquetball/handball courts, seven tennis courts, a rifle range, two gymnasiums, a strength training facility, several locker rooms, and a physical education research laboratory. The offices for most of ETSU’s varsity sports are also housed in the Dome, as well as the athletics administration and media relations offices.

BUCCANEERS STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING CENTER 10

Over the past decade one of the biggest changes in collegiate athletics has been the new attitude toward strength and conditioning. ETSU’s success on the field could not have happened without the hard work and dedication of each student-athlete in the weightroom. Under the direction of head strength coach Lee Morrow, who is currently in his 25th season at ETSU, the Buccaneers have earned eight Gatorade/National Strength Coaches Association All-American Team honors. With its recent collaboration with the Sports Performance Enhancement Consortium (SPEC) ETSU’s strength and conditioning program has focused its efforts on helping each student-athlete reach his/her greatest athletic potential, in the areas of strength, speed, agility and injury prevention. Located inside Memorial Center, the ETSU’s strength and conditioning complex features one of the finest weightrooms in the area. Overall, the Buccaneers have access to a 7,200-foot facility that features state-of-the-art equipment, including customized full power racks, Hammer-Strength machines, including bench press, incline press, military press, rowing machines, speed mats, pull-up and other impressive array of sports performance tools. Through the SPEC and strength and conditioning web site, ETSU student-athletes have 24-hour access to workout plans, nutrition, and other information that monitors each individual or team off-season conditioning program.

Without a doubt the most used piece of equipment in the athletic training facility is the Hydroworx polar plunge pool. It is used by all teams on a daily basis post practice and used by all injured athletes under the care of the athletic training staff. Along with the cold pool is a Hydroworx 500 therapy pool. This pool has a treadmill as part of the floor and two cameras mounted on the front and side of the pool. This gives visual feedback to the athlete and athletic trainer during treatment.

Bucs Aiming for Repeat Performance in 2009-10 Senior Mike Smith

An eight-time NCAA Tournament and two-time NIT participant, the ETSU Buccaneers enter the 2009-10 season looking to build on what was another historic and successful campaign in 2008-09. One year ago, the Buccaneers posted 23 wins and captured one more conference championship – the 18th overall title in program history -- winning the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament trophy and representing the league in March Madness. The Bucs went on to capture the interest of the entire nation during the tournament, taking No. 1 seed and Big East champion Pittsburgh to the wire before falling in the final minutes, 72-62. In that game, the Bucs trailed by only two points with just over four minutes left in regulation, and actually had possession of the ball with a chance to tie. Only free throws at the end by the Panthers led to the 10-point final deficit.

The Bucs success of a year ago was powered mainly by the “Big Three” of graduated seniors Courtney Pigram (Memphis) and Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.), along with current senior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.). That trio combined to score 1,890 of the Bucs 2,657 points during the year, with Tiggs placing second on the all-time single season scoring list with 729 points, Pigram finishing eighth on that list at 598, and Smith ending just outside the Top 10 with 521 points on the year. The bad news for the Bucs is that Pigram and Tiggs are both now graduated and gone, and over 50 percent of the team’s offense from a year ago has left with them. As the Bucs move forward in 2009-10, the departure of both Tiggs and Pigram leaves much of the offensive load to Smith, who not only finished third on the team with

15.3 points per game a year ago, but also led the squad in rebounding with 7.7 boards a contest. Smith ended the year with 10 double-doubles on the season. In addition to what Smith will bring to the table offensively, the Bucs will look to returning players such as redshirt sophomore forward Isiah Brown (Miami), junior guard Micah Williams (Manchester), senior guard Jocolby Davis (Meridian, Miss.), sophomore guard Adam Sollazzo (Tampa, Fla.), sophomore guard Jarvis Jones (Memphis) and junior forward Tommy Hubbard (Boston) to add some offensive firepower to the mix. As for the newcomers this season, University of Alabama transfer Justin Tubbs (Trussville, Ala.) will make his muchanticipated debut with the blue and gold. Tubbs, who brings an athletic body and SEC experience to Johnson City, is a 6-3 shooting guard with incredible leaping ability and highlight-reel moves. Along with Tubbs, the Bucs also expect contributions from redshirt freshman forward J.C. Ward (Marietta, Ga.), as well as a trio of true freshmen in guards Bruce Grimm (Rochester, Ind.) and Buccaneer Basketball


Season Preview

Frontcourt

Sophomore Isiah Brown

Sheldon Cooley (Tampa, Fla.), and forward Lukas Poderis (Port Richey, Fla.). All five of these additions to the ETSU roster have shown potential in early season workouts. As for the season ahead, the Bucs will face a schedule that includes national power Louisville, SEC opponents Tennessee and Arkansas, visits from former Southern Conference rivals Appalachian State and College of Charleston, and an early season stretch with eight games in just 17 days. It will be arguably one of the toughest schedules the Buccaneers have faced in school history.

Brown and Hubbard return as the only holdovers from the Bucs’ frontcourt of a year ago. Making matters worse, with the departure of Greg Hamlin (Flint, Mich.), the team’s starting center a year ago, the squad has also lost its best post defender and shot blocker. However, Brown appeared to mature in front of the entire nation in last season’s NCAA game against Pittsburgh, scoring seven points and grabbing eight rebounds in just 17 minutes of floor time. Meanwhile, Hubbard returned from injuries that cost him most of the season to become a major contributor in the final weeks of the season, providing the team with a lockdown defender and strong inside rebounding presence that helped lift the team to an

Backcourt Pigram’s departure leaves a major void for the Bucs on both ends of the floor. The team’s starting point guard and one of its most feared defenders in the ETSU fullcourt defense, Pigram leaves large shoes to fill this season. Sollazzo brings the most experience to the point guard job, having started 12 games a year ago and averaging 17.9 minutes per game. However, the return of Davis – considered possibly the team’s best defender – from his medical redshirt season immediately puts the battle for the team’s starting guard position in question. Meanwhile, Grimm has impressed in the 2009-2010 Media Guide

Bucs at a Glance Projected Starters: Smith is assured a spot in the starting five in 2009-10, with Brown likely starting in the post based on the amount of time he received last year and his play against Pittsburgh in the NCAAs ... Outside of those two, however, the battle for playing time is a tossup, with Sollazzo, Davis and Grimm competing for the point guard slot ... That leaves the shooting guard spot and another post position needing to be filled. Anticipated Strengths: ETSU’s swarming “Pack” defense and fullcourt pressure were keys to the Bucs’ success a year ago, and the squad returns many of its best defenders ... Smith and Hubbard lead that core group, with the return of Davis giving the team another solid defender on the perimeter ... Brown is also a solid shot blocker, while Tubbs can be a lockdown defender ... On the boards and on the defensive end of the floor, look for the Bucs to once again be among the league leaders in defensive shooting percentage, steals and forced turnovers. Anticipated Weaknesses: With the loss of Pigram and Tiggs, the Bucs have a lot of questions to answer on the offenisve end of the floor ... Having averaged 78.1 points a game a year ago, ETSU lost 37.9 of those points to graduation. All-American Candidates: Smith is already a 1,000-point scorer and he posted a total of 10 double-doubles last season ... He is likely the most capable of making a run at All-American.

preseason with both his shooting touch and his court presence, leaving the Bucs with a three-player bottleneck for that position. At the shooting guard, Jones and Williams appear poised to fight for playing time, while Tubbs brings a great deal of hype to the mix, though he has yet to play one minute for the Bucs. Cooley will also look to find a spot on the floor at either the shooting guard or small forward spot.

All-Conference Candidates: Smith is an A-Sun Player of the Year candidate and is a First Team All-Conference preseason pick ... Brown, Williams, Tubbs and Hubbard all have the potential to earn postseason conference honors with quality seasons. 13


Season Preview/Roster A-Sun title. A major unexpected hurdle for the team was the tragic loss of 6-11 center Seth Coy (Montgomery, Ind.), who would have been a sophomore this season before losing his life in a car accident last summer. While Brown and Hubbard were on the active roster a year ago, Ward spent last season as a redshirt and will enter his first season as an eligible player on the ETSU bench. Hope surrounds not only his ability to provide valuable minutes to the team, but also that Poderis will also develop quickly despite being a true freshman.

Final Analysis NCAA Tournament Appearances . . . 1968, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 2003, 2004, 2009 14

Fullcourt defensive intensity and offensive production from the transition game were the keys to success for ETSU a year ago, and this season should be no different in that regard. The Bucs return a team with the athleticism and defensive skill to be solid in those areas. However, offensive production appears to be the biggest question mark for the Bucs this year, with only Smith returning as a double-figure scorer from last season. Who will step up to replace the pointproduction of Pigram and Tiggs remains to be seen, but whether or not this happens will be the key to the Bucs hopes of returning to NCAA play.

Murry Bartow became the 15th head coach in the 81-year history of East Tennessee State University men’s basketball on April 22, 2003, and he has wasted little time making a place for himself in the tradition-rich history of Buccaneer hoops. Since joining the ETSU family, Bartow has posted the school’s best winning percentage by a coach with five or more years of service, winning 62 percent of his games (118-72). He eclipsed 100 wins at ETSU and 200 wins for his career during the 2008-09 season, and his Buccaneer teams have averaged just under 20 wins a season since Bartow arrived in Johnson City. In addition, his ETSU teams have won the Southern Conference championship in 2004, the Atlantic Sun Conference title in 2007, and the program’s first-ever A-Sun Tournament championship in 2009. During the 2008-09 season, Bartow guided the Buccaneers to another 20-win season, as ETSU posted a 23-11 record. Even more impressive, the Bucs captured the A-Sun Tournament title and made the program’s eighth trip all-time to the NCAA Tournament. ETSU placed three players on the league’s all-tournament team, and ultimately made an impressive showing in the first round of the NCAAs as a No. 16 seed, taking No. 1-seeded Pittsburgh to the wire. In 2003-04, Bartow led the Bucs to arguably the best season in their history, finishing with a program-best 15-1 record in Southern Conference play, setting a new school record with a 16-game winning streak, and coming within one win of matching the best overall record in school history with a 27-6 mark. ETSU finished first in the SoCon North Division for the fourth year in a row and won its second overall regular season title in four years.

Assistant Coach with duties that included recruiting, on-floor instruction, scheduling and pre-game preparation. “It’s important to stress just how much Will brings to our team,” Bartow said. “He’s an excellent floor coach who knows a great deal about the perimeter game. He’s from the Chicago area and helps us enormously when it comes to recruiting. He’s just a well-rounded coach with a lot of talent.” Bailey said he has enjoyed being in Johnson City and having the opportunity to coach an ETSU team that won 27 games five years ago, 24 games in 2007, and 23 games in 2009. Those teams also won a Southern Conference Tournament title, an Atlantic Sun Conference regular season championship, a A-Sun tournament title, and made trips to the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and 2009, and the NIT in 2007. “We have built a strong program here and I’m just glad to be a part of it,” Bailey said. “I’ve enjoyed working here for Coach Bartow and helping this program succeed.” While Bailey’s duties range from traditional duties such as recruiting and scouting, his primary coaching responsibilities revolve around the Buccaneers’ perimeter players and backcourt.

In 2006-07, the team won 24 games which ranks as the fifth-best season in school history, capturing the program’s first Atlantic Sun Conference championship, and the squad returned to the NCAAs last season with a victory in the 2009 A-Sun Conference Tournament. And again in 2008-09, the Bucs fielded a championship team, winning the A-Sun Tournament and participating in the program’s eighth NCAA Tournament. “I think ETSU is a program that is going somewhere and I’ve enjoyed being a part of it,” Boyd said. A 1970 graduate of Northern Michigan University, Boyd was instrumental in helping build Michigan’s 1989 NCAA Championship team.

Veteran college basketball coach Michael Boyd is set to begin his seventh season at East Tennessee State University, after spending the last six seasons as a huge coaching asset for the Bucs. Boyd has a wealth of coaching experience at the collegiate level, after having spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at Penn State from 1996 to 2003, and also serving as an assistant coach at another Big Ten Conference program, Michigan, for 11 seasons from 1979 to 1990. In addition, Boyd also enjoyed a head coaching stint at Cleveland State from 1990 to 1996. After those six seasons at Cleveland State – which included a 22-6 record and MidContinent Conference championship in 1992-93 – Boyd joined the staff at Penn State in 1996. “We are fortunate to have Mike on our staff,” said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow. “He is incredibly experienced as an assistant and head coach at the Division I level, and he has numerous contacts across the country because of his 18 years as an assistant in the Big Ten. Mike works directly with our post players and does an outstanding job developing their game.” Boyd was equally pleased to be joining the Buccaneer program when he took the position in 2003, especially after the kind of season ETSU enjoyed in 2002-03 – a campaign which saw the Bucs win their third consecutive Southern Conference North Division title, capture the SoCon Tournament championship, and make a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Scott Wagers enters his 10th season as an assistant coach at East Tennessee State University, having seen the Bucs win four straight Southern Conference North Division Championships (2000-2004), two straight SoCon Tournament titles (2003 & 2004), two Atlantic Sun Conference championships (2007 & 2009), and make three trips to the NCAA Tournament (2003, 2004 & 2009), and earn a berth in the NIT (2007). “Keeping Scott Wagers on staff was crucial when we made the transition in coaching staffs six years ago,” said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow. “Scott is an excellent coach with great recruiting ties and a talent for working with our post players. He also does a great job with our defensive strategies and alignments.” Wagers’ primary area of responsibility is acting as the team’s defensive coordinator, helping develop the team’s fullcourt defensive style, its trapping principles, and man-to-man philosophy. Along with those duties, Wagers works with the team’s post players and is an invaluable recruiter with ties throughout the country. Before coming to Johnson City, Wagers was the head coach at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., from 19942000. He earned Tampa Bay Basketball Coaches’ Association Coach of the Year honors in 1997-98 after taking his team to the Florida High School semifinals.

In addition, Wagers has been a crucial part of the Bucs recent recruiting ventures into Florida and continues to work that part of the country.

Summary: Temple’s preseason All-American Dionte Christmas scored a game-high 26 points and the defending Atlantic 10 tournament champions held off a late ETSU rally to take a 79-65 win over the Buccaneers in the first round of the Charleston Classic at the Carolina First Center ... In the season opener for both teams, Temple built a lead of as many as 24 points in the second half and held on as a late ETSU offensive surge cut the lead to nine points with 3:31 left ... In the second half, Temple continued to put the pressure on the Bucs and it wasn’t until ETSU began to press the Owls that they got some rhythm offensively. A 16-3 run made it 72-63 with 3:30 left and the Bucs had three shots to score again and cut the lead even more, but those attempts would not fall and Temple held on ... For the game, Temple shot 48 percent from beyond the 3-point line – 67 percent in the first half and just 27 percent in the second. The Owls out-rebounded the Bucs 50-44 and had 20 assists.

Summary: On what turned out to be a historic regular season home opener, senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) became just the second ETSU men’s basketball player in program history to record a triple-double and head coach Murry Bartow picked up his 200th career win, as the Buccaneers trounced non-conference foe Wingate 96-66 Thursday night at Memorial Center ... In front of a crowd of 2,750 fans, Pigram posted game-highs with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to steal the show. He joins former ETSU guard Tim Smith (Newport News, Va.), who posted the program’s first triple-double against Kennesaw State back in 2006. While Pigram rewrote the record books, 6-11 freshman forward Seth Coy (Montgomery, Ind.) also did his part with 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the floor and senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) matched Pigram with 21 points to lead ETSU (2-2) to the win ... The Bucs shot 60 percent from the floor for the game, and held Wingate (0-2) to just 31 percent from the field.

Summary: Hofstra sophomore guard Charles Jenkins scored 31 points, including the go-ahead free throw with 1.1 seconds left in the game to give Hofstra a 76-75 win over ETSU in the final round of the Charleston Classic inside the Carolina First Arena ... The young and inexperienced Buccaneers (1-2), playing four freshmen and two other upper classmen with limited past game experience, were dismal in their clock management late in the game, relinquishing a 75-71 lead in the final 2:39. After a jumper by senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) missed the mark and senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) followed with an offensive rebound and miss with only 31 seconds left, the Pride (2-1) got a final opportunity and Jenkins was fouled driving to the basket with just over a second left ... He made the first free throw and then intentionally missed his second, forcing junior Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) to fire a long desperation shot as the clock expired ... Jenkins led all scorers and, while ETSU’s Smith continued his solid play with a teamhigh 20, while Pigram finished with 19 and Tiggs added 18.

Summary: Temple’s preseason All-American Dionte Christmas scored a game-high 26 points and the defending Atlantic 10 tournament champions held off a late ETSU rally to take a 79-65 win over the Buccaneers in the first round of the Charleston Classic at the Carolina First Center ... In the season opener for both teams, Temple built a lead of as many as 24 points in the second half and held on as a late ETSU offensive surge cut the lead to nine points with 3:31 left ... In the second half, Temple continued to put the pressure on the Bucs and it wasn’t until ETSU began to press the Owls that they got some rhythm offensively. A 16-3 run made it 72-63 with 3:30 left and the Bucs had three shots to score again and cut the lead even more, but those attempts would not fall and Temple held on ... For the game, Temple shot 48 percent from beyond the 3-point line – 67 percent in the first half and just 27 percent in the second. The Owls out-rebounded the Bucs 50-44 and had 20 assists.

Summary: Building a 14-point halftime lead and surviving a second half rally which cut that advantage to just three points, the ETSU men’s basketball team picked up a win in its first nonconference road game of the season, downing in-state and former Ohio Valley Conference rival Tennessee Tech 78-65 inside the Eblen Center ... A short-handed Buccaneer squad – now playing without senior guard Jocolby Davis (wrist/hand) and freshman Seth Coy (foot) who was injured over the weekend when a teammate stepped on his foot in practice – got a game-high 23 points from senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.), 22 points from senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis), and junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) picked up his second career double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds to pick up the win ... While that trio spurred the offensive effort, the Bucs’ defense was equally impressive, holding the Golden Eagles to 33 percent shooting from the floor and 22 percent from beyond the 3-point line. On the glass and in the paint, ETSU dominated 42-31.

Summary: Having watched Bradley struggle from beyond the 3-point arc much of the season, the ETSU men’s basketball team hoped for the same when it faced the Braves Saturday night. However, things didn’t work out as planned ... Bradley – which entered the game making just 27 percent of its 3-pointers – hit a season high 13 shots from beyond the arc for a stout 54 percent from the outside – and a Buccaneer rally in the second half would come too little too late as the Missouri Valley Conference’s Braves upended the Bucs 82-69 inside Carver Arena ... Senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) led all scorers with 27 points, scoring 22 of those points in the second half and during a late rally that the cut lead to nine at 75-66 with 2:21 left in the game. Senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) finished with 15 points and was the only other ETSU player in double figures ... The first half had a nightmarish start for the Bucs, as the Braves – whose previous season high for threes in a game was seven – hit their first five 3-point attempts and rolled out to a 17-2 lead at the 13:59 mark.

Summary: ETSU’s three-headed monster of Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.), Courtney Pigram (Memphis) and Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) left Appalachian State searching for a place to hide inside the Holmes Center ... Renewing a longtime rivalry that dates back to the 1920s, the Buccaneers continued their masterful play on the road, overcoming a two-point halftime deficit to simply dismantle the Mountaineers with a 54-point second half, winning 89-70 in non-conference action. The Bucs were led by Tiggs, who matched his career high with a game-high 31 points, while Pigram posted 29 and Smith pitched in 18. No player on the ASU side of the floor matched any of the Big Three in scoring on the night ... A big key for the Bucs in the game came at the foul line, where they went 23-of-26 for an 89 percent clip. Meanwhile, defensively ETSU forced 21 Appalachian State turnovers on 13 steals, and the Bucs held their own on the glass against a powerful inside game for the Mountaineers, being outrebounded just 41-35 on the glass ... For the third game in a row, the Buccaneers got off to a strong start offensively.

Summary: Despite facing a team that had picked up impressive non-conference wins over Southeastern Conference members Alabama and Auburn earlier this season, the ETSU men’s basketball team made a statement in its Atlantic Sun Conference opener ... Powered by a game-high 21 points from senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) and another 20 from junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.), the Buccaneers dropped the Mercer Bears 81-61 at the University Center ... The Bucs came out strong in the first half for the second straight game, building an early seven point lead when a Courtney Pigram (Memphis) layup found the bottom of the net and made it 18-11 with 11:36 remaining in the half. The ETSU lead would grow to as many as nine points at 32-23 with 3:34 left, and it would remain nine thanks to a defensive stop by the Bucs with just five seconds left in the half. A subsequent tip-in score by Smith made it 37-28 as time expired ... The second half – which included the ejection of Mercer head coach Bob Hoffmann with 12:42 left in the game for receiving his second technical foul of the contest – saw the Bucs continue to build the lead early, and back-to-back 3-pointers by Tiggs and Smith made it 56-36 with 13:16 left in the game. ETSU would lead by 22.

Summary: In a battle that live up to the rivalries long and storied history, senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) scored 30-plus points for the third time in four games and fellow senior Courtney Pigram (Memphis) added 24 as the ETSU men’s basketball team dropped in-state foe Chattanooga 82-70 in non-conference action at Memorial Center ... A crowd of 3,102 watched the Bucs move to 7-3 on the season, while the Mocs dropped to 1-7 on the year. With the win, ETSU improved to a perfect 3-0 against former Southern Conference foes Marshall, Appalachian State and Chattanooga ... Tiggs finished with a career and game high 32 points, meaning the senior has now scored 115 points in his last four games – Marshall (31), Mercer (21), Appalachian State (31) and Chattanooga (32). Meanwhile, Pigram posted a 20-plus point game for the fifth time this season, while Smith scored in double figures (10) for the ninth time in 10 games this year ... UTC slowly chipped away at the Bucs’ lead over the next 11 minutes and manufactured a 7-0 run to make it a 68-67 game with just over four minutes left. A basket by Tiggs broke the string and made it 70-67, and from there a pair of free throws by Smith and another four straight from Tiggs made it 76-67 with just over a minute left.

Summary: Make no mistake, ETSU senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) loves playing the Marshall Thundering Herd ... Though junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) iced the Buccaneers 76-72 win over Marshall thanks to a pair of free throws with 5.6 seconds left inside Cam Henderson Center, it was Tiggs’ game and career-high 31 points that powered ETSU to the victory. In three career games against the Thundering Herd, Tiggs – who was heavily recruited by Marshall – has scored 81 points, having combined to score 50 against Marshall in two meetings during the 2007-08 season ... Led by Tiggs’ 13-of-18 shooting effort, the Bucs hit an impressive 55 percent of their shots from the field, and were 46.7 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. In addition, ETSU also held its own against the Herd inside, being out-rebounded just 32-26, but outscoring the Herd 42-16 in the paint. Tiggs was joined in double figures by Smith, who finished with 16 points and six rebounds, while senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) had a game high six assists ... Brown and senior forward Greg Hamlin (Flint, Mich.) also played well for the Bucs. Brown finished with six points and six rebounds, while Hamlin had eight points, five boards and four assists.

Summary: In a coming out party for the redshirt freshman forward, ETSU’s Isiah Brown (Miami, Fla.) posted a career high 18 points and grabbed a team high six rebounds to lift the ETSU men’s basketball team to a Christmas victory over Atlantic Sun Conference foe Kennesaw State 76-62 inside the KSU Convocation Center ... Along with Brown’s personal best offensively – which included six dunks on the night – the Buccaneers got double-digit scoring from three other players, including a game-high 19 points from both junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) and senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.), and 15 from senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) ... Early on in the game, ETSU shot well over 50 percent and spent much of the first half building a nine-point lead at 23-14 with just over four minutes left in the half ... In the second half, the Owls hit a pair of 3-pointers to start the final 20 minutes and ultimately hit three straight 3s in the opening minutes to make it 39-35 with 15:54 left in the game. KSU got to within two at 39-37, but from there the Bucs used an 18-8 run to pull ahead by 12 at 57-45 with 7:59 left in regulation ... From there, Brown dunked on three straight possessions and scored eight consecutive points, pushing the advantage to 63-45.

Summary: A post-Christmas swoon led to a bump in the road for the ETSU men’s basketball team, as the Buccaneers relinquished a nine-point second half lead and fell to former Ohio Valley Conference foe Morehead State 71-61 ... Building a 4233 lead over the first five minutes of the second half, the Bucs were not able to keep the Eagles down, as Morehead State produced a 14-2 run just minutes later to retake the lead, and then outscored ETSU 13-4 in the final three minutes to close out the contest. With the win, Morehead State snapped ETSU’s current five-game winning streak, and the loss snapped a 19game home winning streak against non-conference opponents for ETSU, a run that had spanned four seasons ... The Bucs were sluggish to start the game, as Morehead State built a lead of as many as six points at 20-14 on a 3-pointer by Maze Stallworth with just under 10 minutes left before the half. Morehead State then held the lead until the 5:46 mark, when a 3-pointer by Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) made it 26-24 in favor of ETSU. The Bucs would then hold the lead the rest of the half and take their largest advantage of the game when Courtney Pigram (Memphis) hit a pair of free throws with just 2.5 seconds left to make it 33-29.

Summary: Suffering through several scoring droughts and ultimately posting a poor offensive effort, the ETSU men’s basketball team was stunned, falling to Florida Gulf Coast 64-61 in Atlantic Sun Conference play ... ETSU rattled off six straight points to reassert an eight-point lead with 6:55 remaining in the game. A few minutes later, Franklin connected on a three-point shot to bring the Eagles back to within three points at 59-56. Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) of ETSU knocked down a pair of free throws with 1:28 left, giving the Bucs a 61-57 lead. After Kyle Marks’ shot was blocked by Isiah Brown, Derrick O’Neil drew a foul and hit both free throws, advancing the score to 61-59 with 1:11 to go. On the Bucs next possession Chambers picked Courtney Pigram’s (Memphis) pocket and ran the floor to perfection, hitting a layup and drawing a foul. With the scored tied at 61 and just 37 seconds remaining, Chambers connected on the free throw to give FGCU a onepoint lead. ETSU never recovered.

Summary: Senior Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) finished with a game-high 26 points and grabbed seven rebounds and junior Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) added 17, as the Bucs rallied past Stetson 73-67 inside the Edmunds Center ... ETSU came out on fire to start the second half, as the Bucs posted a 14-3 run to capture a 50-43 lead when senior Greg Hamlin (Flint, Mich.) came through untouched to slam home a (Mike) Smith miss with 15:08 remaining in the game. From there, the Hatters scored 10 of the next 14 points to creep back into the contest, 54-53, after Tim Lang nailed a jumper with 10:01 on the clock ... After the Hatter run, the game became a slugfest as both teams couldn’t pull away from one another ... Fortunately, for the Bucs, over the next six and half minutes they looked to build momentum by moving their margin up to six (65-59), following a Smith jumper at the 3:39 mark; however, A.J. Smith’s third 3-pointer of the game pulled the Hatters to within three, 67-64, with 1:49 to play in the contest ... Then, with the Bucs leading 67-64 and coming out of a 30-second timeout, Sollazzo was double-teamed at midcourt, but found Hamlin open and he dished a pass across to Brown for an uncontested dunk with 49 seconds remaining. The slam solidified the game.

Summary: Shooting 61 percent from the field in the first half and holding North Florida to just 17 points before the intermission, the ETSU men’s basketball team raced out of the gate and pulled away to an 88-57 win over the Ospreys in Atlantic Sun Conference action inside Memorial Center ... In the first half, the Buccaneers wasted little time setting the tempo, pulling ahead 10-0 in the first three minutes and pushing the advantage to 25-11 with just over five minutes left before the break. ETSU then went on to truly put the Ospreys away, outscoring them 18-2 to close out the half and hold a decisive 43-17 advantage at halftime ... ETSU shot 17-of-28 (61 percent) from the floor and 6-of-12 (50 percent) from beyond the 3-point arc in the first half, while outrebounding the Ospreys 23-13. Meanwhile UNF shot just 28 percent from the field and 17 percent from outside the arc in the first 20 minutes ... In the second half, the Bucs backed off the defensive pressure and ultimately outscored UNF just 45-40, but at that point the game was well in hand. For the contest, ETSU shot 52 percent from the floor and 44 percent from beyond the arc, while hitting the boards to a 45-31 advantage over the Ospreys.

Summary: Senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) set a career high and nearly broke the Memorial Center single game scoring mark by scoring 39 points, while junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) sank a floating shot with 4.5 seconds left in regulation, lifting ETSU past Atlantic Sun Conference foe Jacksonville ... After Smith missed two free throws with 44.9 seconds left, Jacksonville’s Leman Colbert later tied the game at 82-82 with a pair shots from the charity stripe with 32 seconds left. Smith then found redemption, taking a pass from Pigram and driving to the left to make a 10-foot floater off the glass, giving the Bucs the lead 84-82 with 4.5 seconds left. Jacksonville’s Travis Cohn later had a 3-point attempt at the buzzer that came up short and the Bucs escaped with the win ... In a game of runs, a 7-0 burst by the Dolphins was followed by another 9-0 stretch by the Bucs that made it 75-71 in favor of ETSU with 5:49 remaining in the game. JU regained the lead at 76-75 thanks to a bucket by Colbert and a 3-pointer from guard Ben Smith, but three straight foul shots by the Bucs made it 78-76 with 3:27 left ... From there, ETSU built a five-point lead at 81-76, but shooting 1-of-5 from the line down the stretch, Jacksonville was able to tie the game on Colbert’s free throws, setting up Smith’s heroics.

Summary: Overcoming a 15-point halftime deficit, senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) forced overtime on a game-tying layup with .7 seconds left in regulation, and the ETSU men’s basketball team went on to outscore Atlantic Sun Conference foe Lipscomb 12-9 in the extra period to take a hard-fought 85-82 win ... Trailing by as many as 17 in the first half and facing a 45-30 game at the break, the second half started in much the same fashion for the Bucs, with ETSU struggling and Lipscomb holding onto its 15-point lead at 5136 with just over 15 minutes left in the game. However, at that point the ETSU rally began ... Over the next seven minutes, ETSU went to its fullcourt pressure game and outscored the Bisons 22-7 to tie the game at 58-58 and ETSU finally got its first lead of the game with 7:10 left on a pair of free throws from Pigram that made it 64-62 ... However, Lipscomb later led 73-71 with seven seconds left, when Pigram got the ball and scored the game-tying basket with .7 seconds left ... In the extra period, a 3-pointer by ETSU freshman Jarvis Jones (Memphis) sparked a 9-0 ETSU run that made it 82-77 with 1:16 left and the Bucs held on for the win.

Summary: Racing out to a 16-point halftime lead, the ETSU men’s basketball team only poured it on the Belmont Bruins in the second half, building a lead of as many as 33 points and eventually dismissing its Atlantic Sun Conference rival in convincing fashion 87-57 inside Memorial Center ... A raucous season high crowd of 4,196 looked on as the Buccaneers handed the Bruins their program’s worst loss since joining the Atlantic Sun Conference ... The Bucs, who were looking to avenge a heartbreaking loss to Belmont in the semifinals of the A-Sun Tournament last March, simply dominated on both ends of the floor. ETSU hit on 57 percent of its shots from the floor, outrebounded the Bruins 45-35 and forced 17 turnovers on the evening. In addition, the Bucs defense stifled the A-Sun’s best offensive squad, holding them to 28 percent shooting (18-of-64) from the floor and just 20 percent from beyond the 3-point arc (7-of-35) ... The first half was all ETSU from the start. Powered by eight points from Tiggs, ETSU blitzed out to a 14-5 lead before the under 16:00 media timeout. After trading baskets over the next two minutes, another 16-2 run by the Bucs made it 30-13. The second half was no different.

Summary: Senior Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) scored a game high 27 points and junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) posted a season high 22 as the ETSU men’s basketball team held off a stingy Campbell squad 79-60 in Atlantic Sun Conference action at Memorial Center ... The Bucs shot an impressive 53 percent from the floor and were hitting at a 73 percent clip from the foul line, while holding Campbell to just 39 percent from the floor ... In the first half, the Bucs picked up where they left off earlier in the week during a 30-point win over Belmont – employing a stifling defense and effective transition offense ... The second half began with Campbell continuing a run and making it 40-37 with five straight points ... However, from there the Bucs finally found their rhythm again on offense with a 16-4 burst to make it 57-41 with 13:40 left in the game. The Camels would cut the lead to eight points once again at 64-56 with 7:12 left, but Tiggs would score 10 points to power a 15-4 game deciding run by ETSU that basically put the game away.

Summary: Overcoming its worst first half production of the season, the ETSU men’s basketball team got a double-double performance from junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) to make up a 10-point halftime deficit and avoid an upset at the hands of North Florida, dropping the Ospreys 67-64 at the UNF Arena ... Smith posted 14 rebounds and a career high 24 points in the winning effort ... The first half was absolutely atrocious for the Buccaneers, as they committed 13 turnovers, had no steals or assists, and shot just 39 percent from the field. The result was ETSU’s worst offensive first half of the year and a 33-23 advantage for the Ospreys ... However, in the second half the Bucs unwrapped their patented fullcourt pressing style and the result was a more up tempo game. ETSU ultimately moved out to a seven-point advantage with 1:45 left thanks to a 3-pointer by senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis), but a pair of 3-pointers by the Ospreys ultimately spurred a frantic rally late to make it 65-64 with 14 seconds left. Smith then hit a pair of free throws to move the advantage to 67-64, an attempted 3-pointer by UNF’s Cortez Riley missed the mark, and an offensive rebound by senior forward Greg Hamlin (Flint, Mich.) on a missed free throw by Smith with two seconds left iced the win.

Summary: Jacksonville guard Ben Smith sank a game-tying 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation, and the Dolphins outscored the ETSU men’s basketball team 14-4 in the overtime to take an 82-72 win over the Buccaneers Friday evening inside the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena ... With the win, Jacksonville (12-8, 10-1) moves into sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Sun Conference, while the Bucs (15-6, 9-2) fall into a tie for second place with Belmont ... The Bucs took the lead at 9-8 with 13:55 left in the first half, and the Bucs enjoyed an advantage of as many as 15 points in the first 20 minutes. The second half was much of the same for ETSU, but holding a 65-59 lead late in the game, the Bucs looked on as the Dolphins outside shooting ultimately tied the game. A 3-pointer by senior guard Evan Jefferson with 3:15 left and another by Smith two minutes later tied the game at 65-65, but a layup and foul shot by ETSU freshman Adam Sollazzo (Tampa) pushed the advantage back to 68-65 with 14 seconds left ... Smith then shot from 26 feet and hit to tie the game at 68 with 10 seconds left. ETSU inbounded the ball and senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) had a good opportunity to score but his shot rimmed out.

Summary: Facing a four-point halftime deficit, the ETSU men’s basketball team picked up the pace in the second half and forced the issue against Atlantic Sun Conference foe USC Upstate, ultimately outscoring the Spartans 50-36 in the final 20 minutes to take an 82-72 win in front of 3,854 fans at Memorial Center ... The Bucs’ fullcourt defense forced 17 turnovers and ETSU hit on 31-of-35 free throws (89 percent) to pick up the victory and move to 15-5 overall, 9-1 in A-Sun action. With the win, the Bucs set up a crucial first-place showdown with Jacksonville Friday night in Florida, as the Dolphins also stand 9-1 in the league. The game will air on CSS at 7 p.m. ... The “Big Three” of seniors Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) and Courtney Pigram (Memphis), and junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) were certainly strong again for the Bucs. Smith and Pigram each finished with a game-high 22 points, while Tiggs pitched in 18. In addition, Hamlin ended the night with his second double-double in three games with 11 points and 12 rebounds, to go along with four assists, four blocks and two steals. Pigram was an impressive 13-of-14 at the charity stripe ... Along with shooting 89 percent and scoring 31 points at the foul line, ETSU held USC Upstate to just 42 percent shooting in the second half after giving up a 52 percent clip in the first half. The Bucs’ defense also produced 10 steals.

Summary: Well aware that they were facing one of only two teams to beat them in Atlantic Sun Conference play this season, the ETSU Buccaneers produced their best offensive game of the season and rolled to a 102-78 win over Florida Gulf Coast in front of 4,045 fans at Memorial Center ... The win avenged a 64-61 loss to the Eagles earlier this season, and moved the Bucs to 17-6 overall, 11-2 in A-Sun play. With Jacksonville’s 72-71 loss to Mercer earlier in the day, ETSU now holds sole possession of first place in the conference standings ... ETSU’s “Big Three” – seniors Courtney Pigram (Memphis) and Kevin Tiggs (Memphis), and junior Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) – were certainly on their game in this contest. Smith collected his third straight double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Tiggs posted a game high 29 points on 9-of-12 shooting. Pigram finished with 27 points, moving his career scoring clip to 1,874 and overtaking former ETSU great Calvin Talford for fourth place on the all-time scoring list ... Ultimately, the Bucs out-rebounded FGCU 47-38 and forced 17 turnovers by the Eagles. ETSU shot 52 percent from the field and an impressive 50 percent from 3-point range in the victory.

Summary: Senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) missed a running jumper with three seconds remaining in regulation, as Stetson held on for an upset win over first-place ETSU 64-63 inside Memorial Center ... The Buccaneers (17-7, 11-3) did not lead at any point in the game, but managed to overcome an 11-point deficit over the final five minutes and pulled to within one following a made free throw by forward Greg Hamlin (Flint, Mich.) with 1:34 left in the game. From there, the Bucs made a pair of defensive stops but Pigram missed on two different opportunities to give ETSU the lead in the final minute as Stetson (11-12, 8-7) garnered the win ... The rally during the final minutes washed away what was an otherwise forgettable evening for the Bucs ... In the second half, the Bucs’ fullcourt press finally subdued the Stetson attack and held the Hatters to just 32 percent shooting from the floor and only 23 points in the final 20 minutes.

Summary: In a game full of technical fouls, rough play and wild momentum swings, the Lipscomb Bisons built an 18-point first half lead and finally put an end to ETSU’s seven-game win streak in the series with a 96-91 victory in Atlantic Sun Conference play inside Allen Arena ... The first half was eerily similar to the first meeting earlier this season at Memorial Center, when Lipscomb hit on seven 3-pointers and held a 45-30 advantage at the break. In this game, the Bisons again hit on seven long-range shots in the first half, connected on 57 percent of their field goal attempts and out-rebounded the Bucs 21-14 on their way to a 47-32 edge at the break ... In the second half, the Bucs roared back with their patented full court defense and wild transition game. Those efforts led to ETSU making it 72-70 when senior Courtney Pigram (Memphis) nailed a 3-pointer from the right wing with 5:31 remaining. However, from there a technical foul on Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) and another technical on Bartow moments later allowed Lipscomb to pull back out to a 79-70 edge.

Summary: With the door open and another shot to get back into the Atlantic Sun Conference race, the ETSU men’s basketball team once again let the opportunity slip away ... Leading 56-46 with 8:15 left in the game, the Buccaneers imploded on both ends of the floor and looked on as Campbell outscored them 22-6 the rest of the way and picked up a 68-62 win over ETSU inside the new Gore Arena. The win snapped the Bucs 10-game winning streak all-time against the Camels, as the all-time series now stands to 10-1 in favor of ETSU ... The Bucs lead could have been greater as ETSU had built a 38-24 edge with just over one minute left in the first half, but the Camels responded with a 6-0 spurt to close the half ... In the second half, the Bucs again held sizeable leads but looked on as the Camels went on a 24-6 run to close out the game over the final seven minutes ... ETSU junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) finished with a career high 25 points and posted a double-double with 12 rebounds, while Sollazzo posted a career high 12 assists. Senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) was the only other ETSU player in double figures scoring with 12 points.

Summary: Junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) eclipsed the 1,000-point mark with a free throw late in the game and senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) matched his career high with 32 points as the ETSU men’s basketball team snapped a threegame losing streak and remained in the thick of the Atlantic Sun Conference title hunt with a 66-61 win over USC Upstate inside G.B. Hodge Center ... Smith, whose 1,000th point came on a critical free throw with 2:06 left in the game, finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season and the seventh of his career ... The Spartans tied the game at 48-48 and then took the advantage at 54-53. However, with the score 57-56 in favor of ETSU at the 3:50 mark, the Bucs got a pair of free throws and a layup from Smith. Later on, Tiggs stole a pass and went coast to coast for the layup to power a 6-0 run and make it 63-56 with 52 seconds left in regulation ... For the game, ETSU committed just 11 turnovers and shot a solid 44 percent.

Summary: In need of a confidence boost and looking to get his ETSU men’s basketball team back on the winning track, senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) responded to the fans’ pregame chants of “Let’s go, CP!” by scoring a game-high 16 points and dishing out seven assists in the Buccaneers 81-46 win over Kennesaw State inside Memorial Center ... The crowd of 3,149 was treated to one of the Bucs’ best performances of the season, as they shot 49 percent from the floor and held the Owls to just 26 percent shooting. ETSU improved to 19-10 overall, 13-6 in A-Sun play, while Kennesaw State fell to 7-21, 3-16 ... After several tough games shooting the basketball, Pigram looked more relaxed on a night when the ETSU fans began chanting his name even before the tip. The senior led all scorers with 10 point in the first half, going 4-of-10 from the field in the first 20 minutes and helping stake the Bucs to a 34-25 halftime lead ... In the second half, the Bucs only turned up the heat and outscored the Owls 47-21 to leave no doubt about the game’s ultimate outcome. For the game, the Bucs outrebounded KSU 47-31.

Summary: The ETSU men’s basketball team relinquished an 11-point lead in the final eight minutes and senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis) missed a potential game winning shot for the second straight game as the Belmont Bruins upended the Buccaneers ... The Bruins (15-9 overall, 11-4 A-Sun) provided the Bucs’ with a Valentine’s Day heartbreak, avenging an earlier 87-57 loss to ETSU this season and moving back into a tie with the Bucs (17-8, 11-4) for second place in the league race. ... In a game that was 45-45 with 14:09 left, the Bucs went on an 11-2 run to build a nine-point edge and eventually pushed that advantage to 62-51 with 8:10 remaining. However, from there Belmont slowly picked away at ETSU’s lead and actually gained a 3-point advantage at 69-66. The two teams subsequently traded the lead three times, before a 3-pointer by Belmont’s Matthew Dotson made it 74-73 in favor of the Bruins ... The Bucs later made a defensive stop on Belmont and had the ball with 16 seconds on the clock. ETSU ran a play designed for senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.), but he was quickly double teamed by Belmont. Tiggs passed the ball to Pigram who then fired an off target 3-pointer.

Summary: Senior Courtney Pigram (Memphis) set a new ETSU single-game record for 3-pointers on his way to a game high 38 points and fellow senior Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) pitched in 24 points as the Buccaneers made Senior Day a memorable one with a 103-81 win over Mercer in front of 4,609 fans Saturday afternoon inside Memorial Center ... Pigram hit a record 10 3-pointers in the game – with the record-setting shot coming with 6:49 left in regulation – as he moved to 1,972 points for his career ... Senior Day got off to a great start for Pigram and Tiggs, as the duo combined for 41 of the Buccaneers 59 first-half points. Powered by the swarming “black” fullcourt press, the offensive surge was impressive, especially from the 9:11 mark on, when ETSU took a 27-23 game and went on a 32-11 run to close out the half. The Bucs did not allow a Mercer field goal for the final 8:29 of the half ... The Bucs kept the pressure on in the second half, moving their advantage out to 30 points at 69-39 with 16 minutes left, but Mercer showed some fight at that point, putting together a 16-2 run of its own to cut the ETSU advantage to 71-55 with just over 12 minutes left ... ETSU kept the Bears at bay from there on out, pulling away again and finishing with a 22-point margin.

Summary: The seventh-seeded Stetson Hatters gave the ETSU men’s basketball team a scare, but senior Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) scored a career-high 37 points and junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) posted his ninth career double-double to give the Buccaneers a 88-76 win in the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship quarterfinals Wednesday night inside Allen Arena on the campus of Lipscomb University ... ... The first half was dominated by Tiggs, as the first team All A-Sun pick went off for 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the floor. His efforts were enough to stake the Bucs to a 37-33 halftime lead, but the advantage could have been more if not for Stetson’s strong shooting from beyond the arc. The Hatters hit 6-of-13 long range bombs and were 5-of-6 from the foul line to keep the Bucs within reach at the break ... In the second half, ETSU’s fullcourt press finally began to take a toll on the Hatters, as the Bucs opened on a 19-7 run in the first six minutes and built its lead to 56-40 with just over 14 minutes left in regulation. However, Stetson responded with an 8-0 burst of its own to get the game back to single digits at 56-48 with 11 minutes remaining ... Stetson later made the game 64-59 on an A.J. Smith 3-pointer from the wing with 7:20 left, but that would be as close as the Hatters would get the rest of the way.

Summary: Led by a game-high 30 points from senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis), the ETSU men’s basketball team finally ended Belmont’s three-year run of Atlantic Sun Conference championships with an 88-74 victory over the Bruins Friday evening in the semifinals of the General Shale Brick A-Sun Championships at Allen Arena ... On his way to his 30 points, Pigram eclipsed the 2,000-point mark for his career, moved past Keith “Mister” Jennings to stand third on the ETSU all-time scoring list, and became just the second player in A-Sun history to record 2,000 points for his career. Pigram was joined in double figures scoring by senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) with 21 points, junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) with 19, and sophomore forward Tommy Hubbard (Boston) with 11 ... The lead was just 72-70 with 3:16 left in regulation, but from there the Bucs made defensive stops and outscored the Bruins 16-4.

Summary: For most of the 2008-09 season, much had been written and said about ETSU’s “Big Three” of senior guard Courtney Pigram (Memphis), senior forward Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) and junior guard Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) ... But on Saturday in the finals of the Atlantic Sun Conference Championships at Allen Arena, it was the Buccaneers “Big 10” that truly made the difference. While Smith posted a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds to go with 21 points from Tiggs, the ETSU bench combined to provide 22 points and 12 rebounds in an absolutely dominating 85-68 win over Jacksonville ... Dominance in the paint and on the glass highlighted the first half for ETSU, along with a quick scoring start for Tiggs. The Bucs held a 22-17 advantage on the boards, outscoring the Dolphins 24-8 in the paint and enjoying a 14-0 edge in second chance points. Meanwhile, Tiggs scored 13 of ETSU’s first 23 points, staking the Bucs to a 23-11 lead with just over 11 minutes left in the half ... The second half opened with another ETSU run, as a 3-pointer by Pigram to open the half ignited an 11-2 run for the Buccaneers and made the score 54-30 with 16:19 left in the game. Jacksonville tried to answer with a 4-0 spurt of its own, but ultimately ETSU would lead by 30 at 69-39 with 9:05 left in the game.

Summary: Two decades removed from nearly stunning the college basketball world, the ETSU men’s basketball team took another shot at a No. 1 seed and once again the Buccaneers gave the giant a scare ... Having lost to No. 1-seeded Oklahoma 72-71 back in 1989, the Buccaneers have a history of making things interesting in the NCAA Tournament, and ETSU found itself trailing the No. 1 seed and Big East Conference’s Pittsburgh 59-57 with just over four minutes left in regulation. However, the Bucs were unable to complete the upset bid, ultimately falling to the Panthers 72-62 ... The Bucs’ effort was unquestionable on this day, as ETSU forced 18 Pittsburgh turnovers and dominated the offensive glass en route to a 25-7 advantage in second chance points. However, while the competitiveness was there, the Bucs offensive efficiency was not at its best as ETSU shot just 31 percent from the floor (23-of-75) and 50 percent from the foul line (12-of-24) for the game ... Despite the poor shooting effort, the Bucs full court press and man-to-man defense consistently caused Pittsburgh problems and kept ETSU in the game. In fact, the Bucs tied the game five times in the second half.

Tiny Tim Smith (Newport News, Va.) and East Tennessee State nearly won one for the little guys. Josh Howard and his athletic Wake Forest teammates made sure bigger was barely better. Howard, the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, made two key free throws and finished with 12 points to help the second-seeded Demon Deacons survive a major scare from No. 15 seed ETSU in a 76-73 victory, on March 21, 2003. Along with Smith’s 22-point effort that kept the Bucs in the game most of the way, junior Zakee Wadood scored 20 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, picked up four assists and seven steals in the losing effort.

Another 3-pointer came between East Tennessee State and a firstround upset. Tony Bobbitt hit a 3 from the left corner with 16.1 seconds left on March 19, 2004, rallying fourth-seeded Cincinnati to an 80-77 comeback victory over a team that keeps scaring the best teams in America in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Flashy point guard Tim Smith scored 26 points, but missed a driving layup on his last try. The Buccaneers (27-6) then missed two follow-up shots before Jason Maxiell got the rebound to clinch it. East Tennessee State, the 13th seed in the Atlanta Regional this year, nearly pulled off a surprise last year, falling by three points to Wake Forest.

Two decades removed from nearly stunning the college basketball world, the ETSU men’s basketball team took another shot at a No. 1 seed and once again the Buccaneers gave the giant a scare ... Having lost to No. 1-seeded Oklahoma 72-71 back in 1989, the Buccaneers have a history of making things interesting in the NCAA Tournament, and ETSU found itself trailing the No. 1 seed Pittsburgh 59-57 with just over four minutes left in regulation at UD Arena ... The Bucs were unable to complete the upset bid, ultimately falling to the Panthers 72-62 ... With a trapping, fullcourt press defense, the Bucs stymied Pitt for much of the game, and powered by a team-high 21 points from senior Kevin Tiggs (Flint, Mich.) and another 17 from senior Courtney Pigram (Memphis), the Bucs nearly pulled off the upset.

Freshman phenom Tim Smith capped a stunning season at ETSU, scoring 25 points and hitting a final-minute 3-pointer to tie No. 2 seed Wake Forest and give the Demon Deacons a significant scare.

Sophomore point guard Tim Smith once again made the most of the spotlight at the NCAAs, impressing the national television audience and giving Cincinnati fans cardiac problems with a near-upset of the Bearcats.

Senior Kevin Tiggs, who finished as one of the nation’s Top 20 scorers in 2008-09, and the rest of the Bucs did not back down in a battle of No. 1 vs. No. 16. ETSU trailed by only two points with four minutes remaining in regulation, but their dreams of an upset fell short at the UD Arena.

Locker Room/Cheerleaders During the summer of 2005, the ETSU Men’s Basketball locker room was updated once again. After undergoing a major renovation in 1999-2000 that added a players lounge with 38-inch color television/CD system, and eightfoot solid oak lockers with padded seats, the new changes over the summer included:

NCAA Tournament Appearances . . . 1968, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 2003, 2004, 2009

• New wall treatments with color photos from recent ETSU basketball championships were added in 2005, along with new black upholstery on the individual player chairs, new championship banners proclaiming the team’s many successes, and a new team logo on the wall. • A state-of-the-art film room was also added over the summer, providing a meeting place and game preparation area for the entire team. With complete film editing capabilities, ETSU coaches and players are now able to prepare for games in comfort.

Cheerleaders

The ETSU cheerleaders continue to act as ambassadors for the Buccaneers, helping to promote spirit among the ETSU faithful both at competitions and throughout the area as part of community service efforts. In addition, the team continues to succeed in competition, having attended the UCA College Cheerleading Camp at UT-Knoxville this past summer. At that camp, the team won second place honors in the cheer, sideline, and fight song categories, and ultimately earned more top honors than any other team in their division. They also won the coveted “Most Collegiate” Award for the second year in a row. 2009-2010 Media Guide

Championships Dancing Again

In 2008-09, the ETSU men’s basketball team continued to build on its long-standing tradition of success, capturing the 2009 Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament Championship. With that victory, the Buccaneers made their eighth trip all-time to the NCAA Tournament, while bringing home the 26th overall championship in program history. More recently, ETSU has now enjoyed four 20-win seasons in the last seven years, having won conference titles in each of those four campaigns.

Back-To-Back

After posting a program-tying fourth consecutive winning season, ETSU women’s basketball made history by making its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2008-09. The Lady Bucs, who boasted the number one seed in the Atlantic Sun Tournament, defeated Mercer and Jacksonville en route to being tabbed the No. 13 seed in the Berkeley Region. ETSU set a new school record with 16 conference victories and tallied its third straight 20-win season after finishing the campaign at 20-11. Four Lady Bucs were rewarded for their hard work on the court, as Siarre Evans was named the 2009 Atlantic Sun Player of the Year, while Latisha Belcher received Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Year honors. In addition, TaRonda Wiles was named First All-Conference and Gwen Washington was selected to the Atlantic Sun All-Freshman Team. Meanwhile, Evans also cleaned up at the A-Sun Tournament by being tabbed Tournament MVP and was also named a Finalist on the NCAA Division I State Farm Coaches’ All-America Basketball Team.

Three-peat A year removed from earning its first-ever NCAA Tournament win, the ETSU men’s tennis team continued to dominate play winning its fourth straight A-Sun Regular Season crown, while dropping league rival Stetson 4-2, for its third straight A-Sun Tournament title and NCAA Tournament berth. In addition to its seventh NCAA Tournament appearance the No. 61-ranked Bucs swept through the conference awards as head coach Yaser Zaatini was named the 2009 A-Sun Coach of the Year, while senior Enrique Olivares was again named the A-Sun Men’s Tennis Player of the Year and tournament MVP for the second consecutive season. Overall, the Bucs placed six total players on the all-conference teams in addition to running its current A-Sun winning streak to 34 straight wins.


are . . . BLUE The Trifecta

The ETSU men’s cross country/track and field program joined an elite group in 2008-09, as the Bucs were only one of five Division I programs to win the “Triple Crown.” The Bucs began leg one of their quest on the first Saturday in November when ETSU held off Belmont for its first A-Sun crown and 21st overall conference championship. ETSU, who defeated the Bruins by six points (29 to 35), brought its first cross country championship back to Johnson City since winning the crown in 1996. Then, on the third weekend of February, the Bucs completed leg two of the Trifecta run, as ETSU knocked off reigning conference champion Kennesaw State and hoisted the A-Sun Indoor Championship crown for the third time in the last four years. The “Triple Crown” was finally completed in mid-May when the Buccaneer squad overcame many obstacles – and once again – held off Kennesaw State to claim its second outdoor title since joining the league in 2005-06. The ETSU distance runners had a huge hand in winning the championship, as the Bucs went 1-thru-3 in the 5000m and 1-thru-4 in the 10000m.

Championships

Includes all regular season and tournament championships

Redemption Head coach Steve Brooks’ squad returned to the Big Dance for the second time in school history, after winning both the regular season and A-Sun Tournament titles over league rival Stetson. Despite a first-round NCAA Tournament loss to in-state rival and host Tennessee, the Lady Bucs rolled to their best overall season in program history, placing four members on the allconference team, while senior Tara Byrne (MVP), junior Yevgenyia Stupak and sophomore Tara Sheets earned all-tournament honors.
