The Lady Bison will be challenged with a tough national schedule that features multiple NCAA and WNIT opponents from the 2011-12. Eight seniors, which includes AllAmericans Saadia Doyle and Tamoria Holmes, return their final run at the coveted Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Title. For the second consecutive year the Lady Bison were the runner-up at the MEAC Tournament and for the first time in program history accepted a bid for postseason play in the WNIT, where HU fell short to Virginia 59-56 in a thrilling overtime game during the 2011-12 campaign.

This season, Lady Bison roster features eight seniors, two red-shirt juniors and one sophomore, while welcoming two freshmen to the Bison family. The group of 13 is “hungry and humble” and ready to build on their record setting 2011-12 season. “With such a veteran group, we are very excited about this season. Each player went home this summer and really focused on improving various aspects of their game: physically and mentally. In addition we have a group of

2012-13 Howard Women’s Basketball freshmen who have come in with the same focus and drive to be the best,” said Coach G. BE ALL IN, GO ALL OUT

“Since last year we have lived by the premise of, “All In” and this year is no different. For this season “All In, Go All Out” isn’t a motto it is the basis of the way we do things in this program,” said Coach G. “We know that as long as we stay focused on the process and prepare the right way, that the results will take care of themselves. We take a blue collar approach to getting better which is if we come to practice each and every day with our hard hats ready to work that we will see the benefits.”

“We also know that last year was just that, and we must focus squarely on this year, stay in the moment and earn each victory one possession and one game at a time,” Coach G concluded.

we are looking forward to Saadia continuing her reckless mentality on the boards paired with her offensive prowess on the court. I am confident that she will be ready for an exciting senior year.” RETURNEES

I have all the confidence in these ladies as they run the show this season,” said Coach G.

2012-13 Howard Women’s Basketball Niki Reid Geckeler is entering her fifth year at Howard University.

Known as Coach G to her staff, players and peers, Geckeler came to Howard after ten years at Georgetown University, where she served as an assistant coach, recruiting coordinator and academic advisor with the women’s basketball team. Under Coach G’s leadership, the 2012 campaign

In the 2011 Women’s National Invitation Tournament after leading the Lady Bison to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship game last season against conference-rival Hampton. Entering into the 2011 MEAC Championship game, Coach G’s team was second in the conference in scoring defense (54.6) and third in free throw shooting (68 percent), in field goal percentage defense (37 percent) and turnover margin. Within her three complete seasons of coaching at Howard, Coach G has propelled two players into the Lady Bison 1,000 point club––Zykia Brown (1,255, 2007-10) and Saadia Doyle (1,098, 2009-11) who accomplished the feat in a mere two years of play and added more than 500 rebounds to her career.

Under the guidance of Coach G, Brown and Doyle emerged as two of the greatest players to come out of Howard and the MEAC. During the 2010-11 season Doyle was named the 2011 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Year and in the season prior she was named the 2010 MEAC Rookie of the Year. Last season Doyle led the conference in scoring and joined Howard’s 1,000 point club in only two seasons of play. Nationally, Doyle ranked No. 22 in with 13 double-double performances. The careers of Cheyenne Curley-Payne and Tamoria Holmes were successful nurtured by Geckeler and her staff, and the sophomores’ roles proved critical during the 2010-11 season. At the helm of the offense, CurleyPayne quickly propelled herself as one of Howard’s all-time assist leaders as she currently ranks fifth with 200. Holmes’ performance during the 2011 MEAC tournament ultimately helped the Lady Bison push through to the championship game after stellar performances in the early rounds.

The 2008-09 Lady Bison more than doubled its win total from the previous year under Geckeler’s tutelage. The Bison also produced a MEAC Defensive Player of the Week selection in Tamaya Daniels and Brown was named to

12


2012-13 Howard Women’s Basketball the 2009 All-MEAC Second Team. She also had eight players earn All-Big East All-Academic accolades.

Prior to joining the Georgetown coaching ranks Coach G served the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons as Associate Head Coach at Fordham University. Geckeler’s first year as the top assistant at Fordham (2002-03), the Rams had a groundbreaking year, accomplishing a long list of firsts, including their first back-to-back Atlantic 10 road wins and their first four-game winning streak in Atlantic 10 play. Fordham also boasted two four-game winning streaks on the year for the first time since 1994-95, swept an Atlantic 10 opponent for the first time since 1998-99, and picked up their firstever win at Saint Joseph’s. During her tenure at Fordham, two players, Mobolaji Akiode and Monica Mack, were named Atlantic 10 Most Improved Player in 2003 and 2004, respectively. As a player, Reid Geckeler was tri-captain of Georgetown’s 1992-93 team that advanced to the “Sweet 16”of the NCAA Tournament and finished the season with a 23-7 record and a Top 25 ranking.

Compliance

“Winning” for the Bison is more than outscoring the opponent, it is excelling in the classroom, actively participating in community service projects and adhering to NCAA rules regarding recruitment and admission of student-athletes. How can you help the Lady Bison win? Follow the NCAA rules.

The NCAA defines an institution as the University, its employees, its student-athletes, and its representatives of athletics interests, including parents, alumnus and fans. Therefore beware of the following: NCAA BYLAW 13.1.2.1

In Division I, representatives of an institution’s athletics interests are prohibited from making in-person, onor off-campus recruiting contacts, including written and/or telephonic communications with a prospect or the prospect’s relatives or legal guardians. A prospect is defined as any student who has started classes for the ninth grade, whether the student participates in athletics is not relevant to the classification as a prospect and neither is gender. Written or telephonic communications includes email, instant messaging, paging, video conferencing, faxing and text messaging. NCAA Bylaw 16.02.3

An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a student-athlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation. Unless you are willing to give a benefit to all 10,500 students at Howard, don’t give it to a student-athlete or a prospect.

Perkins

Louis “Skip” Perkins Jr., athletics director at University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff (UAPB), has been named Howard University’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. “At Howard, we are committed to building and bolstering our intercollegiate program to ensure that studentathletes succeed in the classroom and compete at the highest levels in their respective arenas,” Ribeau said. “We sought a leader who is committed to academic and athletic excellence; we found that in Skip Perkins.”

Perkins will assume responsibility for Howard’s 19 varsity athletic programs, including Division 1 football and Division 1 basketball. Other sports programs include soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field for men and women; and four programs – bowling, lacrosse, volleyball and softball – in which only women participate. “It’s a truly humbling and exciting experience for me to have the opportunity to return to the Washington, D.C. area to lead Howard University’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics,” Perkins said. “I believe Howard’s and President Ribeau’s emphasis on academic and athletic excellence will serve as the foundation for returning Bison Athletics to national prominence. “

During Perkins’ three-year tenure, Arkansas-Pine Bluff’s Department of Athletics steadily improved. The UAPB athletic program won a total of five championships – highlighted by titles in women’s cross country (2007 and 2009); men’s cross country (2009); women’s soccer (2009) and men’s basketball (2010). Under his leadership, the UAPB athletic facilities were significantly improved. The newly constructed, state-ofthe-art, $5 million J.

He developed and directed communications strategies, which included the development of publications and institutional policies. Perkins holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a pair of Masters degrees in public administration and instructional media from North Carolina Central University.

Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) enters its 41st year of operation heading into the 2010-11 academic school year. The MEAC is made up of 13 outstanding historically black institutions across the Atlantic coastline: Bethune-Cookman University, Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University, Savannah State University and South Carolina State University. HISTORY... In 1969, a bold ad hoc group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, N.C., to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference. Dissected from these discussions, a steering and planning committee was formed to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions, and then construct a workshop to outline proposals.

After adopting a program, seven institutions (Delaware State College, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University and South Carolina State College) agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Its major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards and with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The conference agreed to seek Division I status for its sports.

2012-13 Howard Women’s Basketball The conference’s first expansion occurred in October 1979 when Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University were voted into the MEAC as new members. Original members Morgan State, North Carolina Central and Maryland Eastern Shore withdrew from the conference at the end of the 1979-80 fiscal year. Maryland Eastern Shore was readmitted in 1981 and Morgan State returned in 1984. Florida A&M opted to resign in 1984 but rejoined the conference in 1986. Coppin State College was granted admittance in 1985, becoming the ninth member institution.

The MEAC expanded again in the 1990’s with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The conference expanded in 2007 adding Winston-Salem State University. Following the 2009-10 academic/athletic season Winston-Salem State withdrew from the conference and returned to Division II. On July 1, 2010 the MEAC made its final expansion with the admittance of North Carolina Central and Savannah State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified as a Division I conference by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Prior to that year the conference operated as a Division II conference. The following month the MEAC received an automatic qualification to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.

Currently, the conference has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men’s basketball (since 1981), women’s basketball (since 1982), football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994).

The conference was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971.

In 1978, a milestone was reached when the MEAC selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in May of 1996. In July of 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named the commissioner and has served in the position for nine years.

The MEAC initiated cross country in 1980 and North Carolina A&T earned the inaugural men’s crown. The first women’s cross country championship took place a year later with Howard winning the first of its seven titles. Indoor Track and Field was also added in 1981 with South Carolina State capturing the men’s title and Howard winning the women’s crown.

the MEAC. The Eagles withdrew from the conference in 1979, opting to remain a Division II member when the conference reclassified to Division I. From 1979-2007, NCCU competed in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).

Tennis and golf returned as MEAC governed sports in 1981, after a five-year hiatus. South Carolina State won all seven of the conference’s golf championships from 1972-1983 before the sport was discontinued after the 1983 championship.

Morgan State dominated the conference in wrestling winning 13 of 24 conference championships during the sports tenure (1972-1995). Baseball, which began in 1972, was discontinued following the 1977 season. It was brought back as a MEAC governed sport along with women’s volleyball in 1983. Women’s softball became a MEAC sanctioned sport in 1992.

Bowling was officially sanctioned as a MEAC sport in 1999. Before that season, the MEAC was the first conference to secure NCAA sanctioning for women’s bowling by adopting the club sport prior to the 1996-97 school year.

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announced the addition of North Carolina Central University to the conference as its 13th member, as voted on by the conference’s Council of Chief Executive Officers (CCEOs), effective July 1, 2010.

“I am elated to have such an outstanding academic institution as North Carolina Central to return to the MidEastern Athletic Conference,” said MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas. “I would like to commend Chancellor Nelms, Dr. Wicker-McCree, and the entire NCCU family for all their continued hard work as they make the transition from Division II to Division I.”

Commissioner Thomas added, “The addition of NCCU keeps us in compliance with our long range strategic plan of adding up to 14 members. NCCU is a perfect fit for the MEAC.” NCCU is in the third year of its reclassification from NCAA Division II to Division I. NCCU is one of seven founding member institutions of

“This is a significant milestone in North Carolina Central University’s transition to Division I,” said NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms. “Membership in the MidEastern Athletic Conference is a win-win proposition for our student-athletes, alumni and fans -- indeed, all our university constituents.”

“This is wonderful news for North Carolina Central University, but most importantly for our studentathletes, coaches and fans,” said NCCU Director of Athletics, Dr. Ingrid Wicker-McCree. “The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is a fantastic conference with highly competitive academic and athletic institutions. For NCCU to return to the MEAC and be part of its rich history is a tremendous step for our athletics program. We now have a place to call home.”
