THE GOOD PROGRAM • In 2012-13, LMU men’s basketball earned three straight wins at the WCC Championships to advance to the semifinals for the second time in four years. BYU excluded, only LMU, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s have gone to the quarterfinals and beyond in each of the last four WCC tournaments. • Max Good, who is in his sixth season in 201314, enters the season fifth all-time in program history in wins (64), sixth in conference wins (23) and second in WCC tournament wins (6). • Good led the Lions to a 21-13 mark and its second postseason appearance in three years in 2011-12, LMU’s Centennial year. That season set standards going back to the Lions’ Elite Eight team of 1989-90, including its first 20-win season, the most conference wins (11), most home wins (12), and the best road record (9-4), defeating a pair of ranked teams away from home (UCLA, Saint Mary’s). • The 21 wins was the fourth most in school history and the 11 WCC wins is tied with the 1967-68 team for the third most. The Lions won a pair of games in the postseason, the first postseason wins since that Elite Eight team. Good was named WCC Coach of the Year following the Lions’ success that season. • Last year, Anthony Ireland finished second in the WCC and 14th nationally with 20.2 ppg in 2012-13. He finished with 688 points, seventh all-time at LMU and just the 15th time some-
one has scored at least 600 points in a single season in LMU history. Ireland is the first Lion to earn back-to-back first-team All-WCC honors since 2007 and is just the second junior to do it all-time. • The 2012-13 season saw men’s basketball claim the most WCC All-Academic Selections (Ashley Hamilton, Ayodeji Egbeyemi, Taylor Walker) in program history. During Coach Good’s tenure, the Lions have graduated all 17 seniors who have completed their eligibility. Fifth-year senior Alex Osborne is the fourth Lion during Good’s tenure to be working on his master’s degree while still playing (Hamilton, Teel, Diederichs). He graduated with his Bachelor’s in Economics in May of 2013 and is currently in the Master’s of Education Studies program. • In five seasons with Coach Good, the Lions have had at least two members on the All-WCC teams in four of the last five seasons, its first NABC AllDistrict and Jesuit All-American (Ireland), five 1,000-point scorers (Viney, DuBois, Teel, Ireland, Hamilton), and a pair of players go for 1,000 points and 500 rebounds (Viney, Hamilton), just the 13th and 14th time that has happened. • Since the WCC Basketball Championships began in 1987, the lowest seeded team in the tournament field (No. 8 through 2011, No. 9 starting in 2012) had advanced just four times.

MU Head Coach Max Good, who officially took over the program as the 25th coach in school history on Jan. 12, 2009, continues to put the Lions in new levels of success. In Good’s fifth season, the Lions advanced to the semifinals of the WCC Championships thanks to three straight wins in three days. The Lions join Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga as the only program to advance to the quarterfinals and beyond in each of the last four seasons. The run in the 2013 WCC Championships was at the heels of Good’s fourth season where LMU finished the 2011-12 season at 21-13 overall and 11-5 (4th) in the WCC. Many of the Lions’ marks in LMU’s Centennial Season go back to the 1989-90 Elite Team, including its first 20-win season, the most conference wins, first postseason win, first team to earn consecutive postseason wins, most home wins (12), and best road record (9-4). In addition, the Lions have found success in the big games under Head Coach Good. The Lions are 4-5 against ranked opponents the last three seasons under Good, including a 3-2 mark in 2011-12. The three wins in one season against ranked opponents is second only to the 1989-90 team in
program history. Good has led the Lions to a pair of wins (#9 Gonzaga, #23 Saint Louis) over ranked teams at home, the first coach to do so since Coach Donovan in 1961. The success in the 2011-12 season earned Good the WCC Coach of the Year, the Lions first since 1995-96. Entering 2013-14, Good is 64-98 and has a career head coaching record of 306-321. Good is no stranger to running a program. The 2013-14 season will be Good’s 22nd as a head coach at the NCAA level, coaching eight seasons at Bryant College (2001-08) prior to joining LMU. He also coached at UNLV for one season (200001) and eight seasons at Eastern Kentucky University (1981-89). In addition, his impact hasn’t been just at the college level as he was the head coach at the New England prep school Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield, Maine, for 10 seasons (1990-00). Good coached 28 of the Lions’ 31 games in the 2008-09 season, filling in for former Head Coach Bill Bayno, who served a leave of absence before resigning due to health issues. In Good’s second season the team posted its second best turn-around in school history with 15 more wins than the
year prior (which was also the second-best turn-around in the nation in 2009-10), defeated their first ranked opponent (#9 Gonzaga) since 1990, posted the program’s first ranked-win at Gersten Pavilion, defeated a top-10 team for the second time in school history (the last being in 1960), and had three players earn postseason All-WCC honors, just the 10th time since 1956 three or more Lions have claimed WCC honors. Prior to joining the Lions as an assistant, Good led Bryant University (Smithfield, RI) to new levels of success, posting a record of 132-86 in eight seasons. Good was named head coach in 2001 and inherited a program that had four straight losing seasons. The 2003-04 season saw Good lead the Bulldogs to a new level. They set a school-record with 23 wins, earning the school’s first NCAA tournament berth in 24 years. They not only qualified, but advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. After a tough loss in the regional finals in just his third season, year four may go down as one of the best in Bryant’s history, leading them to a 25-9 overall record and a trip to the NCAA www.LMULions.com • #LMULions
Division II Championship, falling to Virginia Union in the title game, 63-58. Good came to Bryant after spending the 2000-01 season as the head coach of UNLV. He went on to post a record of 13-9 in his one season with the Runnin’ Rebels. He joined the UNLV staff in 1999-00 as an assistant. Prior to joining the UNLV staff, he spent 10 seasons (1989-99) as the head coach at Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield, Maine. He compiled an impressive 275-30 (.902) record that included five New England Prep School Athletic Conference Championships. His extensive coaching background includes five seasons as the assistant coach at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond (1976-81). He then was named the head coach and spent eight seasons at Eastern Kentucky from 198189. He compiled an overall record of 96-129 (.427) at EKU. He enjoyed his best season in 1986-87 with a 19-11 record as he was named the Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year. The next season his squad was 18-11. Before arriving at Eastern Kentucky, he spent six seasons at Richmond Madison High School in Richmond, Ky. He served three seasons (1970-73) as the JV head coach and three seasons (1973-76) as the head coach. Good graduated from EKU in 1969 and received a master’s degree from his alma mater in 1970. He was introduced into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in Kingston, RI, for his time as coach at MCI in 2004 and was named the 2005 Words Unlimited Coach of the Year and Rhode Island Basketball Media Coach of the Year in 2008.

LMU BASKETBALL TIMELINE 1900-1924 Then known as St. Vincent’s College, the school first played basketball in 1906, and possibly finished 5-0. The University was founded in 1911 as an outgrowth of St. Vincent’s College, the first college in Los Angeles. Then in 1922, the Lions faced its first nationally ranked opponent in Larry Semon, the No. 4 ranked AAU team. In 1923, Rev. Thomas J. Flaherty became the first head coach of the St. Vincent’s program. He finished his first season 6-6 and coached only one year. A year later, the Lions opened a new gym on the old St. Vincent’s campus. Harold “Bill” Hess was introduced as head coach and finished his only campaign 10-7.
1925-29 The Lions post first season with doubledigit wins, going 10-7 in the 1924-25 season. Coached by Harold “Bill” Hess, the Lions had wins over Woodbury Business College, Cal Tech and the Hollywood All-Stars. In the fall of ‘25, George Casey became the third head coach of St. Vincent’s, finishing his only year as coach 6-5. In 1926, the University plays in first overtime game, a 20-16 loss to Whittier. First year coach, John Richlie, the fourth in as many years for the Lions, finishes 7-5. He coaches three years and finishes 20-21. Then in 1927, they win first overtime game, a 16-14 victory against California Christian College. In 1928, Loyola College moved to its current location on the Westchester bluff and two years later became Loyola University. In 1929, Joseph Donahue takes over the program and goes 7-9 before the program is discontinued.
1930s Loyola discontinues the men’s basketball program for four seasons during the great depression. The team returns to the court in
1934, and posts a 4-11 record in their first season back. William Sargent takes on the coaching duties for two years and finishes 8-15. Loyola then wins first postseason tournament in 1938, the El Paso Southwestern AAU Basketball Tournament. The Lions defeated the 7-Up Bottling Company in the first round 61-39 and Texas Mines 50-33 in the second round. In the semifinals, Loyola defeated Stephen Foster 52-30 and Straton Oilers 47-42 in the championship.
Scotty McDonald wraps up his six-year career at Loyola with an 83-90 record. Edwin Powell guides the team to a 14-14 record in 19521940s 53 for his only season at the helm.

son, posting a 22-14 record under McDonald in 1948-49. The Lions would see their longest winning streak at that time of 10 games. The season included the first game in Alumni Gymnasium, the Lions’ home until the 198182 season when the Lions moved to Gersten Pavilion.

1964 The Lions reach the century mark for the first time in school history with a 100-70 win over St. Mary’s on Dec. 28.
1968 Following John Arndt’s 91 wins, the sevenyear head coach concludes with a 19-6 record, 11-3 in the conference. Richard Baker takes over for the next five seasons. In the same year, NBA coach Rick Adelman finished his three-year playing career with 1,425 points, averaging 18.8 points in his career at LMU.
1973 The University merged with Marymount College to become Loyola Marymount University. The Lions entered the merger with a new head coach (Dave Benaderet), and as “LMU,” the Lions finished 13-14 and fourth (6-8) in the WCAC.
1980 The Lions received a bid to the NCAA West Regional, losing to Arizona State in the first round, 99-71. LMU would later have to forfeit that season due to an ineligible player.
1985 Paul Westhead is hired as head coach of the men’s basketball team, replacing Ed Goorjian, who coached from 1980-1985. In his first season, he leads the Lions back to the postseason for the first time since 1980. In 1985, US International and LMU begin a four-year series that would result in the highest-scoring games in NCAA history. After defeating USIU 84-65 in January of 1985, the “track meets” would begin. In Westhead’s first season in 1985-86, the Lions would defeat USIU 151-107.
break offense began to take hold, as the Lions scored in triple figures in all but nine of their 32 games.
1988 The Lions would clinch their first WCAC regular season championship since the ‘60s and their first Tournament Championship with a 104-96 win over Santa Clara in the WCAC Championship game. LMU advances to the NCAA tournament, and earns its first win in the “Big Dance,” a 119-115 win over Wyoming, who two years earlier knocked the Lions out of the NIT. Playing in the West Sub-Regional in Salt Lake City, Utah, LMU would be a surprise opponent in the second round against power North Carolina. The Tar Heels would dismiss the Lions, 123-97.
1989 The Lions earned their second consecutive WCAC Tournament Championship with another win over Santa Clara, 75-70. The Lions finished 20-11 on the season, following a 120-101 loss to Arkansas in the first round of the NCAA tournament in the Midwest Region held at the Hoosier Dome in Indianapolis. Earlier in the year, LMU and US International hooked up for the first of their record breaking contests. The Lions set the NCAA scoring record with a 181-150 win. The 181 points would stand for two years as the NCAA’s scoring mark. The two teams set four records in that game, three of which still stand - combined points (331), points by a losing team (150), and combined field goals (130). The teams met twice that season. In their earlier meeting, which LMU won 152-137, the teams attempted a combined 245 field goals, an NCAA record.
1990 It was a season to remember in 1989-90. In ad-
Concluding the 1985-86 season, the Lions found themselves in the NIT for the first time in school history. Traveling to Berkeley, Calif., to face the Bears in the first round, the Lions would begin a successful end to the 1980s decade that made a habit of winning in the postseason. The Lions defeated Cal, 80-75, to advance in a postseason tournament. LMU would fall to Wyoming, 99-90, to end Westhead’s first season at 19-11 and 10-4 in the WCAC (second).
dition to their 28 games scoring in triple digits, the Lions led the nation in points per game at 122.4. LMU also earned its third straight WCC title and trip to the NCAA tournament. In finishing 26-6, the Lions advanced further than any team in school history by reaching the Elite Eight in the NCAA Championships. However, tragedy marked the Lions’ Cinderella run. On March 4, 1990 in the second round of the WCC Tournament, the Lions took a 25-13 lead on Portland following All-American Hank Gathers’ dunk on an alley-oop from Terrell Lowery. Gathers would collapse to the floor and would not regain consciousness. Gathers would be pronounced dead later that evening at Marina del Rey’s Daniel Freeman Hospital. The WCC Tournament would be cancelled and the Lions would be named champion, earning the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. A long shot and seeded No. 11 in the West Region, the Lions were not expected to accomplish one of the greatest runs in NCAA history. Playing on the emotion of the past week’s events, the Lions would upset New Mexico State 111-92 in Long Beach in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Once again, the Lions accomplished the unexpected against defending national champion Michigan. In the highest-scoring game in NCAA tournament history, the Lions defeated Michigan 149-115 in a game that saw Jeff Fryer set the tournament record with 11 three-pointers. The Lions would move to the Sweet 16 and defeat Alabama in a role reversal for the Lions, winning 62-60, half of the team’s regular season average. The Lions would fall to the eventual national champions, UNLV, 131-101. The run in the 1990 tournament will long be remembered, however, with the image of Gathers’ teammate and longtime friend Bo Kimble shooting the first free throw left-handed - a switch from his normal right-handed shot. Kimble made every shot he took left-handed.
1991 A year following the Lions’ record breaking year, in which the Lions set some of the NCAA’s highest marks in scoring, LMU set a record that might never be touched in yet another “track meet” against US International. The Lions scored a NCAA record 186 points in their 46-point win, breaking the record of 181 they set two seasons earlier. USI’s Kevin Bradshaw set the scoring record against a Division I opponent with 72 points.
1987 LMU began the Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble era of Lions’ basketball with a 114-78 win over Tennessee Tech. The season would finish as the Lions’ best in winning percentage, finishing with a 28-4 mark (87.5%) and a perfect 14-0 in the WCAC. The 1987-88 season would include a 25-game winning streak, the best in school history. The fast-
1995 Finished the season in eighth place. However, the Lions managed to stage another great upset, rising up to beat WCC regularseason champ and eventual NCAA tournament participant, Santa Clara, in convincing fashion.

1997 In Head Coach John Olive’s final season, the Lions finished conference play last at 3-11 heading into the WCC Tournament. Facing top seed Santa Clara, the Lions pulled off a major upset, defeating the Broncos 70-61 to advance to the semifinals, eventually losing to St. Mary’s, 80-62. Jim Williamson, a fouryear letterwinner for the Lions, reached the 1,000-point plateau at LMU. He finished his career with 1,247 points. Olive would be replaced by Charles Bradley, who would coach for three seasons.
2000 Steve Aggers was hired as the Lions’ 22nd head coach. The Lions head into the new season with only two players who played in WCC contests from the prior year.
2003 The Lions defeated 26th-ranked Gonzaga at Gersten Pavilion, 80-74. The win ended the Zags nine-game win streak on the season, their 22-game win streak against WCC opponents and a 16-game stint against LMU. The Lions finished the game with a 29-24 edge in rebounding, the first time in 13 games Gonzaga had been outrebounded by a conference opponent. Freshman Wes Wardrop had four steals against WCC Player of the Year Blake Stepp, forcing him into eight turnovers on the night.
game where they fell to fourth-ranked Gonzaga at the buzzer, the ninth game of the season decided on the final play or overtime, the sixth resulting in a setback. Senior Wes Wardrop and juniors Brandon Worthy and Matthew Knight all earned first-team All-WCC honors.
2008-09 Following a 5-26 season and an eighth place finish in the WCC at 2-12, Rodney Tention stepped down as head coach and in April the Lions hired Bill Bayno as the program’s 24th head coach. The former UNLV head coach spent five seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers before returning to college coaching with the Lions. On Jan. 12, Athletics Director Dr. William Husak announced that Bayno, who took a leave of absence on Nov. 24, officially resigned from the position of head coach. Husak also announced that Max Good, who had been serving as acting head coach during Bayno’s leave, signed a multiple-year deal to coach the Lions.
2009-10 What a difference a year, and some stability, makes. On the 20th Anniversary of the 198990 men’s basketball team and their run to the Elite Eight, the Lions finish 18-16, go 7-7 in the WCC and advance to the postseason (the CIT tournament) for the first time since 1990. The 2009-10 season saw the Lions post their second best turn-around in school history with 15 more wins than a year ago; second-best turnaround in the nation in 2009-10; posted the
The Lions inducted the 1990 LMU men’s basketball team into the LMU Athletics’ Hall of Fame on January 28 and they were honored at halftime of the Lions’ game against rival Pepperdine on January 29. The game had double meaning as the Lions knocked off their rival in front of the fifth-largest crowd in LMU history, 4,032. That mark did not last long as the Lions set the new fifth-highest mark two weeks later with 4,337 against No. 14 Gonzaga. In April, the Lions hired the 23rd head coach in program history, Rodney Tention. The eight-year assistant from Arizona was a part of 10 straight postseason appearances as an assistant.
2011-12 Celebrating LMU’s Centennial, the LMU men’s basketball team went on to honor LMU’s 100th year with its best season since the Elite Eight season of 1989-90. LMU finished the 2011-12 season at 21-13 overall after going 11-5 (4th) in the WCC. It was the first 20-win season, the most conference wins, first postseason win, first team to earn consecutive postseason wins, most home wins (12), and best road record (9-4) since that Elite Eight season. Drew Viney and Anthony Ireland were named firstteam All-WCC, while Head Coach Max Good was named WCC Coach of the Year. In addition, Ireland earned second-team NABC AllDistrict honors. With the two home wins in the CIT, the Lions finished with 12 victories at Gersten Pavilion on the season, the secondmost (1986, 1990, 1996) since the building opened in 1981-82. Included in the win total were three ranked wins, including at No. 18 UCLA, No. 23 Saint Louis and at No. 16 Saint Mary’s. The win over the Gaels on the road improved them to 7-1 on the road in WCC play as they would finish 9-4 overall away from home. They played in four overtime games in a season for the first time since 1994-95, winning all four. It is the first time in program history the Lions have won four overtime games in a single season.
2006 In the first season under Head Coach Rodney Tention, the Lions earned its highest finish since 1996 and 1992 in the West Coast Conference at second place, advanced to the program’s first WCC Tournament Championship since 1989, had three players earn first-team All-WCC honors (the first time since 1990), and finished with two players selected to the WCC All-Tournament team (first time since 1995). The Lions finished the WCC season at 8-6, defeated Saint Mary’s in the WCC Tournament Semifinals to advance to the WCC title
longest win streak since the 1995-96 season (6 games); defeated their first ranked opponent (#9 Gonzaga) since 1990, and first ranked-win at Gersten Pavilion; defeated a top-10 team for the second time in school history (the last being in 1960); defeated Notre Dame and USC on the road; and had three players earn postseason All-WCC honors, just the 10th time since 1956 three or more Lions have claimed WCC honors (Drew Viney, Vernon Teel and Ashley Hamilton).
Anthony Ireland celebrates hitting a threepointer at the halftime buzzer in the win at No. 18 UCLA.
In a season of near misses, the Lions got hot at the right time. The Lions won three straight games at the 2013 WCC Championships to advance to the semifinals for the second time in four years. BYU excluded, only LMU, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s have gone to the quarterfinals and beyond in each of the last four WCC tournaments. Anthony Ireland finished second in the WCC and 14th nationally with 20.2 ppg in 2012-13. He finished with 688 points, seventh all-time at LMU and just the 15th time someone has scored at least 600 points in a single season in LMU history. Ireland is the first Lion to earn back-to-back firstteam All-WCC honors since 2007 and is just the second junior to do it all-time. The 2012-13 season saw men’s basketball claim the most WCC All-Academic Selections (Ashley Hamilton, Ayodeji Egbeyemi, Taylor Walker) in program history. www.LMULions.com • #LMULions
