2013-14 Season Outlook

Railsplitters Looking To Continue SAC Reign

Who’s Back

The Railsplitters return seven players from the 2012-13 South Atlantic Conference regular-season championship squad including three of their topseven scorers. Headlined by the return of junior Lorenza Ross (Savannah, GA/Richmond Hill) and senior Chance Jones (Knoxville, TN/Austin-East), the Railsplitters boast an experienced group in the backcourt heading into the 2013-14 campaign. Ross was named to the All-South Atlantic Conference Second Team after compiling 10.2 points per game while dishing out a team-leading three assists a night. In 27 appearances, Ross recorded double-figures 16 times and dished out five or more assists on four occasions. Jones, meanwhile, churned out 6.2 points per game and led the team in steals with 25 total. The 6’2” guard came on strong late in the season with four double-digit scoring performances in the team’s last six games, including an 18-point showing against Barton in the NCAA Southeast Regional semifinal.

Who’s Back

At the head of the returning front court players, Vincent Bailey (Jennings, FL/Centennial), who earned 2012-13 All-South Atlantic Conference First Team honors, returns for his senior season at LMU after leading the team in scoring (13.5) and rebounding (7.4) last season. Bailey churned out eight doubledoubles last season and notched doublefigure scoring in 23 of his 28 appearances. He capped the season with 12-straight doubledigit performances. Bailey’s efforts inside will be aided by the growth of redshirt-junior Keenan Peterson (College Park, GA/Banneker). The 6’10” and 250 pound forward looks to build on the 201213 season in which he averaged 2.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in 16 appearances.

Along with that duo, the Railsplitters’ backcourt will be buoyed by the return of junior C.J. Wakeley (Alachua, FL/Santa Fe) and sophomore Tim Pierce (Albany, GA/Albany). Wakeley tallied 4.4 points, 1.8 assists and two rebounds a night before suffering a season-ending foot injury against Lenoir-Rhyne in January. Pierce, a SAC AllFreshman Team selection, notched double-figure scoring three times in route to a 4.7 average in his debut with the Railsplitters.

Lincoln Memorial Basketball Fresh Faces

The Railsplitters’ roster boasts ten new players, with five of those returning for their second season in the program after red-shirting the 201213 campaign. In the back court, the Railsplitters will be buoyed by the debuts of Curtis Webb (Spartanburg, SC/ Dorman), Luquon Choice (Laurens, SC/Laurens), Ray Mobley (Atlanta, GA/South Gwinnett) and Hunter Spaw (Bean Station, TN/Grainger) after that group opted to redshirt last season to spend a year getting acclimated to Josh Schertz’s system. At 6’4” and 200 pounds, Webb looks to provide a physical defensive and athletic offensive presence. Webb was an All-State selection in 2011 and 2012 at Dorman High School. Luquon Choice will add another big-bodied guard to the fray, chalking in at 6’3” and 225 pounds. Choice was named to the All-State Team following his senior season at Laurens High School. Ray Mobley and Hunter Spaw can provide deep shooting threats in the Railsplitters’ rotation, as Mobley averaged 15 points a game his junior season while Spaw set the Grainger High School single-season record for three-pointers with 99 during his senior campaign.

2013-14 Season Outlook Fresh Faces

a 6’8”, 220 pound forward, was ranked as the fifthbest center in Ohio after churning out 9.9 points and 7.7 rebounds a night at Canton McKinley High. Maniacci, meanwhile, comes in at 6’9” and 200 pounds. The Union, Kentucky native was ranked among the top-five players in Northern Kentucky after notching 10.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game. Rounding out the recruiting class, the Railsplitters made two significant additions to the back court with Devin Hankins (Huntsville, AL/Sparkman) and Gerel Simmons (Accokeek, MD/Brevard College) electing to continue their careers at LMU. Hankins was an Alabama 6A All-State selection backed by his 15.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 2.8 steals per game. Simmons also joins the program after spending last season with South Atlantic Conference rival Brevard College where he notched 14.3 points and 4.5 rebounds a night.

2013-14 Schedule

Paul Woodson (Cincinnati, OH/Aiken Technical) is the lone addition to the front court from the Railsplitters’ group of redshirts. Coming in at 6’9” and 185 pounds, Woodson is a long, lanky and versatile forward who collected 13.5 points, 13.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game his senior year at Aiken Technical High. Along with those five redshirts, the Railsplitters welcome five entirely new players for the 2013-14 campaign. Three of those five players are expected to become staples in the post as Dawud FisherGrace (Bedford, OH/Bedford), Mike Mills (Canton, OH/Canton McKinley) and Louis Maniacci (Union, KY/Cooper) are set to fortify the Railsplitters’ front court. At 6’10” and 295 pounds, Fisher-Grace provides a mammoth presence in middle of the lane for Lincoln Memorial. Despite waiting until his sophomore year of high school to pick up the game, Fisher-Grace averaged seven points and seven boards a game his senior year. Mike Mills,

Three Titles in Three Years

The Railsplitters clinched the first SAC regular-season title on February 12, 2011 with an 84-72 win over Newberry. After earning the No. 1 seed for Food Lion SAC Championship, LMU claimed victories over Carson-Newman, Tusculum and Wingate over a four-day stretch to capture the 2011 SAC Championship. Two seasons later, the Railsplitters returned to the top of the South Atlantic Conference regular-season standings after running off a 15-3 mark in league play. LMU ensured at least a share of the regular-season championship with a 63-60 victory at Wingate on February 27th. Three days later, the Railsplitters grabbed the outright championship by throttling Catawba, 82-65, in the regular-season finale at Tex Turner Arena.

TEX TURNER ARENA

The Tex Turner Arena has been the home of the Railsplitters since 1991. Since then, it has become known as one of the top basketball facilities at the Division II level. The arena replaced the Mary E. Mars Gymnasium, which had been the home of LMU basketball since 1948. The 87,000 square foot complex seats 5,009 for basketball contests, with another 1,000 portable seats available for other events. The distance from the playing floor to the roof is 40 feet, the equivalent of a two-story building. The arena is 230 feet (east to west) and 282 feet (north to south). It contains over 81,866 square feet of floor space, and over 4 million cubic feet of space. The arena was named after former LMU football and basketball standout B. Frank “Tex” Turner, who donated the funds for its construction. Work on the multi-million dollar facility began on May 7, 1988 and on Feb. 2, 1991 the Railsplitters held their first contest in the facility when they hosted the University of Alabama-Huntsville in a doubleheader. The men lost 85-69. Since Josh Schertz’s arrival in 2008, the Railsplitters have been nearly unbeatable in Tex Turner Arena. Over that span, LMU has accumulated a 67-9 clip including a 15-0 record at home during

Bio

Lincoln Memorial’s run to the South Atlantic Conference regular season championship in 201213 was quite an accomplishment after losing two first-team all-conference selections and three starters from LMU’s 26-6 team of 2011-12. In 201213, LMU won its third South Atlantic Conference title in the last three seasons and appeared in the conference tournament championship game for the second time in three years. In 2012-13, LMU advanced to its third-consecutive NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Southeast Regional semifinals for the second-consecutive year. Additionally, LMU was nationally ranked all 15 weeks of the regular season for the second-straight year. In 2011-12, Lincoln Memorial graduated its top two players but didn’t miss a beat as they became the first team in South Atlantic Conference history to be ranked #1 nationally. Lincoln Memorial went 14-4 in conference play, earned its second-straight NCAA Tournament bid and won its first NCAA Tournament game, advancing to the regional semifinals with a win over King University. In 2010-11, LMU had a record setting season, going 27-3 and ripping off a school and conference record 22-game winning streak. LMU also won its first ever South Atlantic Conference regular season and tournament championships and qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. For his efforts, Schertz was named South Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year and was a finalist for Division II National Coach of the Year. On December 7, 2010, Lincoln Memorial broke into the NABC/Division II national polls for the first time in school history. In 2009-10, Lincoln Memorial posted its first 20-win season at the Division II level and recorded its first ever postseason win.

Lincoln Memorial Basketball

This is LMU

Lincoln Memorial University was founded in 1897 as a living memorial to Abraham Lincoln and his philosophy and ideals. Its inception dates from an occasion in the fall of 1863 when the President was meeting with General Oliver Otis Howard to discuss military operations in and around the Cumberland Gap and East Tennessee area. The President expressed his appreciation for the loyalty that the people of the region had shown to the Union during this time of Civil War. Pointing to the area on the map, Mr. Lincoln said, “General Howard, if you come out of all this horror and misery alive, and I hope that you may, I want you to do something for these people who have been shut out from the world all these years. If I live, I will do all I can to aid you and between us we may do them the justice they deserve. Please remember, and if God is good to us we may be able to speak of it later!” Mr. Lincoln did not live to see his dream fulfilled, but O.O. Howard (who also was a founder of Howard University) never forgot those words. In 1895, he traveled to the Cumberland Gap area to address a small academy that was operated by a Congregational minister, the Rev. A.A. Myers, and his wife Ellen. While he was there, the General remembered Lincoln’s request and joined with the Myers and several prominent friends to lay the groundwork for a university honoring the slain President. It was to be an institution whose mission and principles would exemplify the life of Abraham Lincoln. The philosophy articulated by these founders as a guide for University programs and curriculum was based on the following principles which were exemplified in the life of Abraham Lincoln: individual liberty; the privileges and responsibilities of the American government; love and respect for the fellow people; personal initiative, individual effort; unselfish leadership; an appreciation for the common people; free enterprise; and belief in a personal God. Now in its 116th year of operation, LMU has grown into a progressive university, offering over 30 majors. LMU’s Fall 2013 enrollment was 3,952 students at the main campus and twelve extended learning campus sites. The main campus is also home to the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum, which houses one of the largest Lincoln collections in the country.
