ABOUT THE COACHES Kevin McKenna (Creighton ‘93) is in his third season as the head coach at Indiana State (26-37). In his first season with the Sycamores, McKenna led the team to its highest win total since the 2000-01 season and an impressive 12-2 record at home in the Hulman Center. Last season, he led the Sycamores to six victories in their final seven regular season games, including three consecutive league road wins in the span of 10 days. McKenna came to Indiana State after spending nine seasons as an assistant coach at Creighton, where he helped the Bluejays advance to four NCAA tournament appearances. From 200105, McKenna spent four years as the head coach (89-33) at NCAA Division II Nebraska-Omaha, where he guided the Mavericks to four consecutive 20-win seasons and three appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament. McKenna is 1-2 all-time in regular season contests against Nebraska-Kearney (all at UNO) and earned an exhibition victory over UNK prior to the 2007-08 campaign at Indiana State in exhibition play. Tom Kropp (UNK ‘75) Tom Kropp, one of the greatest athletes ever in the State of Nebraska, has become one of the most respected coaches in the nation. In 2004, Sports Illustrated named Kropp as one of Nebraska’s ten greatest sport celebrities among such notable names as Andy Roddick, Ahman Green, and Jay Novacek. The magazine cited Kropp’s leadership in leading his Alma Mater to a 73.8 winning percentage, as well as his accomplishments as a two-sport athlete, drafted by the N.B.A., the A.B.A. (American Basketball Association), and the N.F.L. Four years earlier, Sports Illustrated had already selected him as one of Nebraska’s 50 greatest athletes of the 20th century. Kropp has never faced the Sycamores in a regular season contest.

SERIES HISTORY Friday night’s game is the first between Indiana State and Nebraska-Kearney in a regular season contest. ISU downed UNK by the score of 90-59 in an exhibition game prior to the 2007-08 campaign.


A WIN OVER NEBRASKA-KEARNEY WOULD ... •Would give Indiana State a record of 8-2 in its 10 season openers this decade and a perfect mark of 7-0 in season openers at Hulman Center. •Give Indiana State its first regular season victory over the Lopers. •Extend Indiana State’s streak of winning season openers on their home floor to 18. A Little History: Indiana State opens the 114th season of college basketball at the school on Friday night against Nebraska-Kearney. The Sycamores are 1,331-1,132 all-time on the hardwood. For Openers: Indiana State is looking to earn its first season opening victory since taking a 78-45 decision against Oakland City to kick off the 2007-08 campaign. ISU won six consecutive season openers from 2002 until 2008 before falling 86-79 to open last year’s campaign. The Sycamores have won each of their season openers which have occured at Hulman Center since falling by the score of 66-63 to Armstrong State to open the 1979-80 campaign. Sycamore Signees: Indiana State inked three student-athletes to national letters of intent earlier this week as part of the NCAA Early Signing Period. Steve McWhorter, Myles Walker and Jake Kitchell comprised the Sycamores’ 2009 Signing Class. McWhorter, a 6-2, 185, point guard from Racine, Wis., won a Division 3 state championship last season at Saint Catherines High School as he averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 assists and shot 57.6 percent from the field for coach Bob Letsch. McWhorter took over as the starter at point guard when he was a sophomore. As a junior, he was on a team with nine seniors, and his talent shined in the state tournament. He had 12 points, seven assists and five rebounds in a 48-34 state championship victory against La Crosse Aquinas. In the state semifinals, McWhorter had nine points and nine assists. “Steve McWhorter is first and foremost a leader,” McKenna commented. “He is a very quick, aggressive point guard whose strengths are passing, ability to penetrate and defense. He continues to improve as a shooter and he has experience playing for a quality championship caliber program. He had a great summer and is working hard this fall as well. He will fill a need for us with the graduation of Harry Marshall and Rashad Reed next season. We feel very strong about the abilities he is going to be able to bring right away into the program.” Walker is a 6-8, 250, junior college post player from South Plains Junior College who averaged 7.4 points and 4.8 rebounds, while shooting 46.7 percent from the floor and 38.6 percent (32 for 83) from the free-throw line as a freshman last season for coach Steve Green. Walker’s best game was a 24-point, 13-rebound performance on Jan. 1. He averaged 1.0 blocks per game with a season-high of five, and he twice had three steals in a game. At Antonian College Prep in San Antonio, Texas he played for head coach Andre Walker. Myles was named to the all-state team three times and all-district four times. He was once named to the North-South All-Star tournament. As a middle linebacker for the football team Myles

earned all-state recognition three times and played in the Army All-American Bowl. He also ran track, boasting a time of 48.07 seconds in the 400 meter dash. “Myles Walker is a good post player prospect,” McKenna said. “He plays the game with a physical presence especially on defense. Myles is an extremely athletic player who can score around the basket. His physical presence was one of the things that attracted us to Myles because that is something that I feel we need to improve on. He has been very well coached in high school and at the junior college levels and that also was a key factor in his recruitment.” Kitchell is a 6-9, 225, power forward from Union Mills, Ind., and played for coach John Steinhilber at South Central High School. Kitchell averaged 20 points, 14 rebounds, six assists and six blocks per game for a team that finished the 2008-09 season with a record of 17-5. He is expected to be a first team all-state selection later this month in the upcoming edition of the annual Hoosier Basketball Magazine. He was a member of the Indiana Junior All-Stars last spring. “Jake Kitchell is a inside/outside post player that will remind those that watch our games of Jay Tunnell,” McKenna commented. “He is a tough, physical player that can shoot from the perimeter well. He comes from both a winning high school and AAU program (SYF). He has put up some big numbers in several categories and we are looking forward to having him join the program next season.” Preseason Valley Predictions: The Indiana State basketball team has been picked to finish seventh in the Missouri Valley Conference Preseason Poll as announced today by the league office. Additionally, senior Harry Marshall and junior transfer Jake Kelly were named Preseason All-MVC Honorable Mention selections in the annual vote of conference head coaches, media and sports information directors. The Sycamores’ seventh place predicted finish is its highest since the 2001-02 campaign when Indiana State was picked to finish third. Last season, ISU won six of its final seven regular season contests to finish with an 11-21 record, including winning three MVC road contests in the span of ten days. Indiana State captured the league’s No. 8 seed at the State Farm MVC Tournament and downed Drake in the opening round before being nipped in the waning moments against eventual league champion Northern Iowa, 71-67, in the tournament quarterfinals. UNI is picked to repeat as the league’s champion with 38 first place votes (389 points) and are followed by the only other team to garner a first place tally, Creighton (336). Picked to finish third is Illinois State (299), followed by Southern Illinois (272), Wichita State (216), Bradley (208), Indiana State (173), Drake (105), Missouri State (92) and Evansville (55). Marshall was an All-MVC Honorable Mention selection at the end of last season after leading the team with a 13.6 ppg average. Kelly will make his Sycamore debut this season after earning All-Big Ten Honorable Mention status last year before transferring from Iowa.

Kevin McKenna Head Coach Kevin McKenna is in his third season at Indiana State as head coach of the basketball program. Over the past two seasons the Sycamores have showed the ability to display a fighting spirit which has shown on several occasions. The most memorable came at Illinois State when the Sycamores overcame an 11-point deficit in the final three minutes to down the Redbirds on their home court behind career high scoring totals from Jay Tunnell and Harry Marshall. Marshall’s clutch buzzer beating shot silenced what had been a roaring flock of Redbird fans for much of the final three minutes of regulation as well as overtime and gave the Sycamores a 75-73 victory and put Marshall in the national spotlight as his shot was named the No. 5 best buzzer beater in the four-year history of ESPNU. That victory over Illinois State catapulted the Sycamores to five consecutive victories (three of which came on the road in league play) as ISU won six of their seven final regular season games heading into the conference tournament. ISU downed Drake in the opening round and then pushed league champion Northern Iowa to the limit in the quarterfinals before eventually falling 73-69. The Sycamores wound up with an 11-21 overall record against one of the toughest schedules faced by a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. ISU finished 7-11 in league play, which was tied for eighth with Drake. Marshall and Tunnell garnered All-MVC Honorable Mention honors while Tunnell was named to the MVC’s Most Improved Team. Aaron Carter was tabbed on the Valley’s All-Scholar Athlete squad. McKenna made an immediate impact on the program

in his first year at the helm, as he led the team to a 3-0 record to start Missouri Valley Conference play, including a 62-54 win over Creighton. Fans at the Hulman Center also got their money’s worth from McKenna and the Sycamores at home, as the team won its first nine straight at home before falling to nationally-ranked Drake on Jan. 9. Overall, the team finished with a 12-2 record at home, its best since the 2000-01 season. Indiana State’s successful run at home was highlighted by a 21-point comeback against Wichita State during McKenna’s first season. The Sycamores trailed the Shockers 48-27 with 13:43 left in the game before ISU chalked up the game’s next 21 points to knot the score at 48 in just over six minutes of game action. The Shockers retook control of the game to lead 62-52 with 2:32 left in the game, but the Sycamores came back once again to tie the score at 67 with four seconds left. ISU controlled overtime and took an 83-73 overtime victory. In the summer of 2009, McKenna was selected as the head coach of the Athletes In Action college basketball team during a tour of Poland and Germany. The summer tour lasted from May 18-27 as he led the team in contests in Katowice, Poland as well as Berlin, Germany. The AIA team was comprised on NCAA Division I basketball players from American, including Sycamores Dwayne Lathan and Koang Doluony. Before accepting the head coaching position at Indiana State, McKenna completed his ninth season at Creighton as an assistant coach, helping the Bluejays to a 22-11 record and the NCAA tournament this past season. In nine years the Bluejays went to four NCAA


Tourna Tournaments as well as two National Invitation Tournaments. McKenna made the t first of two stops on the Bluejays’ bench from 1994 through 2001, aand then returned in 2005. Before McKenna returned to Creighton, he spent four highly succes successful years across town as head coach of NCAA Division II NebraskaOmaha Omaha, where he guided the Mavericks to four consecutive 20-win season seasons, two North Central Conference titles and three appearances in the NCAA Division D II Tournament. McKenna was named the NCC Coach of the Year in both 2004 and 2005 as a well as North Central Regional Coach of the Year by the National Associa Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) in 2005. He finished with an 8933 mark mar in his tenure at UNO. In his first campaign with the Mavericks, UNO set a school record with 24 wins as they made their first visit to the NCAA Division II Tourna Tournament in 17 seasons. The 24-9 record was a 15-win improvement from the th 9-17 team he inherited and ranked as one of the nation’s top turnaro turnarounds. Prior to his arrival at UNO, the Mavs had not won a league title sin since 1984 and had not won more than 20 games in a season since 1990. As a player at Creighton from 1977-1981, McKenna led the Bluejays to a Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship, two MVC Tournament titles and a pair of NCAA Tournaments. He was an All-MVC pick and team MVP in each of his final two seasons. McKenna ended his collegiate career with exactly 1,500 points and was drafted in the fourth round of the 1981 draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. He was a member of the Lakers’ 1982 NBA championship team and also played for Indiana, New Jersey and Washington during a six-year NBA career. He remains the only person in league history to win an MVC regular-season title, MVC Tournament title, NBA championship and CBA crown. Following his NBA career, McKenna helped lead the La Crosse Catbirds to the 1989-90 CBA Championship as a player and assistant coach. He then served as the head coach and director of basketball operations for the CBA’s Sioux Falls Skyforce from 199093. He spent time as a regional scout for the Washington Bullets in 1993-94 before returning to Creighton as an assistant to Dana Altman in 1994. He earned his bachelor’s degree in organizational communications from Creighton in 1993 and added a master’s degree in counseling education from his alma mater in 1997. McKenna and his charming wife, Nancy, who is also a graduate of Creighton, have been married 27 years. Kevin and Nancy have a daughter Megan (25) and a son, Bobby (18). Megan works in the ISU Athletic Media Relations Office as the Director of New Media, and Bobby is a senior at Terre Haute South High School.
