Northwestern State Demon Basketball

AFTER A SUCCESSFUL 2012-13, NSU LOOKS TO GO EVEN FURTHER IN 2013-14 With nine returning lettermen from last year’s 23-9 team that reached the NCAA Tournament, including two of the main cogs in DeQuan Hicks and Jalan West, it’s not surprising that Northwestern State is a popular pick to win the Southland Conference regular-season crown in 201314. But as veteran coach Mike McConathy will quickly point out, the Southland is too balanced and competitive to have a prohibitive favorite, and there are several real contenders for the championship. He does admit the Demons are among them. Hicks (6-7 Sr. , 14.0 pg, 5.9 rpg, 58.3% FGs) was the Southland Newcom2012-13 SLC Newcomer of the Year er of the Year as a power forward and West DeQuan Hicks (5-10, 10.2 ppg, 5.3 assists, 2.4 steals pg, 83.6% FTs) was the league’s Freshman of the Year at point guard last season as Northwestern State finished a close second in the league standings and won the Southland Tournament to reach the NCAA Tournament while posting a 20-win season for the third time in nine years. The return of Hicks, West and explosive Brison White (6-0, G, 8.0 pg, two 20-point games), along with proven veterans Patrick Robinson, Marvin Frazier, Gary Stewart and Tyler Washington, bodes well for the Demons, who enter their 15th season under McConathy. In running an aggressive defense and fast-breaking offense that ranked second nationally in scoring and sixth in steals last season, McConathy typically uses two fiveman rotations and will have to replace his second and third-leading scorers, Southland Tournament MVP Shamir Davis and James Hulbin, an All-Southland pick, along with two more of his top 10, swingman Gary Roberson and postman O.J. Evans. The Demons will get help from a pair of freshmen, three-time Louisiana Class C Player of the Year Zeke Woodley (6-2) and 6-1 Delaware prep standout Sabri Thomp- 2012-13 SLC Freshman of the Year

son. Both are swing guards and Woodley can be very effective inside. He shapes up as a contender to give the Demons two straight Southland Freshman of the Year honors. Helping offset the departures of the 6-10 Evans and 6-9 Hulbin: returning 6-9 junior Marvin Frazier, who started to evolve into a low post threat down the stretch last year, and a pair of junior college transfers. 6-7 Ryan King will be an inside defensive presence at 6-7, 205, while 6-8 Matt LeBato should fit into Hulbin’s mold of a bigger perimeter threat who can go down low at times. The X-factor is McConathy’s leadership. He became the winningest men’s college basketball coach in Louisiana history late last year, and with 575 victories in 30 years, he’s seen plenty. McConathy is a veteran voter on the USA Coaches Top 25 and is nationally-recognized among major college coaches who put education ahead of hoops. Over 85 percent of his seniors have graduated.

Mike McCONATHY

Head Coach • 15th Season at NSU (223-213) • 31st Season Overall (575-372) Alma Mater: Louisiana Tech (1977) Northwestern State Demon basketball celebrated its centennial last season. There couldn’t have been a more appropriate person to be in charge at NSU than head coach Mike McConathy, who has engineered many of the greatest accomplishments in the program’s 100-year history, and whose father, uncles and sons have their places in Demon basketball lore. The 2012-13 season played out just right – and then some -- as McConathy became the winningest men’s college basketball coach in Louisiana history. Combined with his 352 career victories at Bossier Parish Community College over 16 seasons beginning with launching the program, McConathy has won 223 more in 14 years at Northwestern for a career total of 575 all-time wins, passing Grambling’s Fred Hobdy (572-288 until he retired in 1986). The 2012-13 Demons were one of the most exciting, entertaining teams in school history, finishing with a 23-9 record, posting the secondbiggest win total ever at Northwestern. They ranked among the nation’s top 100 teams in 11 NCAA statistical categories, including second nationally in scoring (80 points per game) and sixth in steals per game (9.8). The season culminated with a Southland Conference Tournament championship and NSU’s third berth in the NCAA Tournament. The Demons traded baskets for 30 minutes with Southeastern Conference champion Florida, a team that held the No. 1 national ranking earlier in the season, before the Gators pulled away with a fierce game-ending run. It didn’t dampen the sense of accomplishment among the NSU family. McConathy has won 61 percent of the games he’s coached. With the Demons, he is 150-114 against Southland Conference foes (134-107 regular season, 16-7 in conference tournament play). His record includes 64 regular-season “guarantee” games with three wins (2005 at Mississippi State, at Oklahoma State, vs. Oregon State), making him 220-151 otherwise – including two NCAA Tournament wins (2001, Winthrop; 2006, Iowa). “Coach Mike” is nationally respected by those who coach, and cover, the game. For the sixth year, he will be part of the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Top 25 voting panel. He does his own ballot each week. He’s been late once in six years – and that was on a weekend the team was returning from Hawaii. He just completed a three-year term on the NCAA’s coaches’ regional advisory committee assisting with the NCAA Tournament selection process. He received the 2012 National Association of Basketball Coaches Guardians of the Game Pillar Award for Education during NCAA Final Four weekend in New Orleans. It is among the most prestigious awards presented by the NABC, representing one of the four core values of the Guardians of the Game program – education, leadership, advocacy and service. McConathy has constantly promoted educational values for, and with, his players. Nearly 85 percent of the seniors in his NSU program have graduated. The Demons received a perfect Academic Progress Rate score in the NCAA’s annual report in May 2011 and have consistently ranked

among state, Southland Conference and even national leaders in that and the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate in McConathy’s 14 seasons. National television and radio analysts and announcers such as Tim Brando, Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery of CBS Sports, Doug Gottlieb and Jerry Punch of ESPN, and Charles Barkley have expressed their admiration of McConathy, as much for his core values as for his coaching acumen. Three Division I head coaches – Marquette’s Buzz Williams, McNeese’s Dave Simmons and Mark Slessinger of New Orleans – have served on his Demon coaching staff. Demon basketball has evolved in his tenure from being nearly an afterthought in the historic city of Natchitoches to providing the sports heartbeat of northwest Louisiana in February and March. His Demons have been to the Big Dance three times (2001, 2006, 2013), winning a NCAA Tournament game in the first two trips, and reached to the Southland Conference Tournament championship game seven times in his 14 seasons (2000, 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2013). Only the Demons and Louisiana-Monroe (1990-93) have made four straight championship game appearances in the five decades of SLC basketball competition. McConathy brought the philosophy of “Championship Basketball …

Coach Mike is presented a banner that will hang in Prather Coliseum for his record.

Northwestern State Demon Basketball with a Purpose!” to NSU in March of 1999. After winning 70 percent of his games in 16 seasons at Bossier Parish Community College, he took over a program that had never been to the NCAA Tournament and had just five winning seasons in 24 years of Division I history. When he arrived at his father’s alma mater, tasked with turning around a long-downtrodden program, Coach Mike didn’t run off the players in the program so he could bring in his guys right away. At the press conference announcing his hiring, he talked about bringing Demon basketball back to the level of expectation it had when his father and uncles played for Northwestern in the 1950s. Then, 20-win seasons and conference championships were standard fare. One veteran media member wondered if the new coach was from Mars, so farfetched that goal seemed. After all, NSU had had never been close to a Division I conference championship or an NCAA Tournament berth. McConathy only had two scholarships to work with, just a couple of weeks before signing day, but instead of cleaning house, he created a homelike atmosphere. This program, he told the veteran players, wasn’t his. It was theirs. His role was to shape it into something good, for them and for the players to come. His two pre-teen boys, Michael and Logan, spent as much time in Prather Coliseum as the players did. That wasn’t by accident. Coach Mike told his team that he wanted to be able to have pride in having his boys around the players. So the McConathy kids had a bunch of older brothers, and the players suddenly had a couple of younger brothers, subtly reminding them their conduct was very personal to their new coach. Deep inside, McConathy also was determined to build a program that would be solid enough that when his sons finished high school, it might appeal to them to be involved, in some way, perhaps even as players, just like

their grandfather Johnny and their uncles, George and Leslie, were in the years between World War II and the Korean Conflict, when the NBA was a fledgling league with teams in Ft. Wayne and Syracuse, a decade before color television made its debut. Now, beginning his 15th season as head coach, Coach Mike’s vision has long since become reality. Sticking with the players already in the program worked. His first team posted the first winning season in eight years at Northwestern, and became the first Demon team to reach the Southland Conference Tournament championship game. A year later, the Demons were back, and they didn’t stop there. The heart of the team he inherited and inspired worked its way to the SLC Tournament title in 2001, into the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever, and to an opening round win as the Demons became “Dayton’s Darlings” and somewhat of a national media sensation at the outset of March Madness. The swirl of national talk show appearances, the fact that the team’s opening win was the lead story on “SportsCenter” and in the next day’s USA Today sports section, was all part of the bigger picture for McConathy. It was a chance to solidify the foundation that had been established, an opportunity to springboard the NSU program into a position of being a consistent championship contender in the Southland Conference. A year later, as seven seniors went through commencement exercises, McConathy was preparing for the consequences of a surprising recruiting decision. The coach who spent 16 seasons in the junior college ranks decided against blending juco players with a few prep prospects to replace the departing senior class. Instead, McConathy and assistants Simmons and Slessinger brought in a dozen high school seniors. Those recruits were the 2005-06 seniors, except for Jermaine Spencer,

McConathy Tim eline: How it all got started As a player... “Coach Mike” is already inducted into the Louisiana Association of Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame for his career as a high school All-American at Bossier City-Airline High School and as a high scoring guard at Louisiana Tech from 1973-77. He was inducted in Louisiana Tech’s Athletics Hall of Fame in October 2011. McConathy was a gym rat. One of his personal workouts involved shooting baskets in the dark. The hard work paid off for McConathy, who was a fourth-round draft pick of the NBA’s Chicago Bulls. Among his 2,033 career points were 45, still the Prather Coliseum single-game record, against Northwestern in his senior year. He was told he had made the Bulls roster, but was released on the final cut. He tried playing in Europe, but soon decided to come home and begin his coaching career. As a coach before NSU ... McConathy’s start in coaching came as girls basketball coach at his alma mater, Airline High School in Bossier City. Soon, he moved into the college ranks without making any kind of move at all. McConathy won 20 games or more in 11 of his 16 seasons as head coach at Bossier Parish Community College, starting the program from scratch in 1983. They didn’t have a gym or dormitories, practicing and playing at Airline when the gym was available. But his teams posted at least 23 wins in each of his last seven seasons at BPCC, and were in the top 10 of the final national junior college Top 25 rankings in each of his last three seasons. His overall 352-159 (.688) record at Bossier Parish included a remarkable 185-48 (.794) mark since the start of the 1992-93 season. His last six teams won Miss-Lou Conference cham-

They like to drop by her office in Kyser Hall, where she coordinates the Bossier Parish Community College operations on campus. She frequently attends practices, often getting In her fitness workout while watching “her boys.” She’s an invaluable advisor for Coach Mike. His father, Johnny McConathy, won a state championship at Bossier High School before he went into administration, eventually serving a long term as superintendent of schools in Bossier Parish. His first college coach was Scotty Robertson, who signed him to play at Louisiana Tech and coaching him his freshman year before becoming the first-ever head coach of the NBA’s New Orleans Jazz. Coach Robertson spent more than 20 years in the NBA, serving as head coach in New Orleans, Chicago and Detroit, and retiring as Pat Riley’s bench coach with the Miami Heat. Until he passed away in August of 2011, Coach Robertson made frequent trips to Natchitoches to visit with the Demons and to duck hunt with his good friends, including former NSU soccer coach Jimmy Mitchell.

who had interest from LSU and Texas, among others, but signed with McConathy and the Demons. Spencer took a medical redshirt year as a sophomore, so his senior season came in 2006-07. Behind that 2003 recruiting class, the Demons layered in a handful of talented high school players in 2004 and 2005, and added a blend of prep and junior college recruits since, averting another wholesale rebuilding. The plan worked. The youngest team in the country battled through two losing seasons, appearing ready to turn the corner in 2003-04 before some key players were sidelined. In 2004-05, the payoff began: 21 wins (the most for the Demons since 1960), a Southland Conference co-championship, homecourt advantage in the SLC Tournament and an ESPN-televised championship game at Prather Coliseum. But it was a stunning last-minute loss. That was the painful motivator for the 2005-06 team - the Demons wanted to fulfill their potential, to repeat as champs, host the SLC tournament championship game again, and win there - and in the NCAA Tournament. They did that, and much more. The Demons had a school-record 26 wins, including victories at Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, over Oregon State and No. 15 Iowa in the NCAA Tournament. Attendance records were shattered. They earned a TV game in the ESPN BracketBusters. They won the SLC by the widest margin in nine seasons. Northwestern made its fourth SLC Tournament championship game appearance in McConathy’s first seven seasons as head coach. The Demons won the Pontiac Game Changing Performance $100,000 general scholarship prize for the most spectacular play in the NCAA Tournament. Northwestern made four national television (CBS, ESPN2, ESPNU) appearances, let alone the cascade of national coverage during their NCAA Tournament run by the Demons of Destiny. Each March, national media revisit the win over St. Patrick’s Day win over third-seeded Iowa, capped by Jermaine Wallace’s off-side rebound and fall-away 3-pointer from the corner with 0.5 left. It’s shown over and over on TV, and has continually been featured in lists of all-time NCAA Tournament great finishes and best NCAA games of the decade. In March 2011, an NCAAsports.com vote by fans tabbed the contest the greatest game in NCAA Tournament history. Seven seniors graduated. For most programs it would be back to the drawing board at that point. For the Demons, it was back to more success in 2006-07 -- starting with a jam-packed Prather Coliseum for a seasonopening smackdown of Utah State, and finishing a 3-pointer shy of another NCAA Tournament berth. For the third straight year, NSU won an SLC title - this time the newly created SLC East Division crown. Again, the Demons were in the SLC Finals. It was more déjà vu in 2008. For the sixth time in nine seasons, and for the fourth consecutive year, the Demons reached the SLC Tournament championship game. Another nailbiting 3-point loss kept them from the Big Dance. But their SLC Tournament dominance was palpable to observers and the competition, who are wary of the Demons’ depth that makes them so formidable in the late season and postseason play. That was borne out again in 2013. Northwestern posted its third 20-win season in nine years. Prather Coliseum was the least liked destination for Southland teams. March Madness again enveloped the NSU faithful, and in commencement exercises in December and May, Demon players marched in cap and gown. It’s all part of Coach Mike’s plan. And it’s a home grown product. McConathy has built with Louisiana players -- 12 of this year’s 17 Demons are from the Bayou State. That’s fitting. The McConathy family roots, and values, are deep in the red clay hills of north Louisiana, tracing back decades to his family’s farm

in hilly Bienville Parish, where his father and uncles did their chores before they used horses and bicycles to make the six-mile plus trip to basketball practice and games. During his days at Bossier Parish Community College, McConathy had chances to join his college teammate Tim Floyd as an assistant coach at Iowa State and possibly to the NBA, but it never came to pass. He couldn’t put a price tag on raising his boys around their grandparents and uncles and aunts in north Louisiana. Now, as he’s brought Northwestern basketball back, and even beyond to a level it reached when his father played for the Demons, he’s proud his parents, Johnny and Corene, sit across the court at Prather Coliseum, savoring the experience. The transformation of Demon basketball has been accomplished. The challenge hasn’t ended -- competition never does -- but Mike McConathy has built a program solid enough that he would be proud to have his own son as part of the team. He’s smiling even more broadly nowadays. Michael and Logan graduated with honors after finishing five years in purple and white. But there still is a roster full of “Coach Mike’s boys” who don’t happen to be McConathys, just Demons. Ask any of them, or their predecessors -- Demon basketball truly is all a family thing.

“Mike is remarkably relaxed in this pressure cooker. You can tell his players hold a reverence toward him. If you didn’t meet him, you’d think he was too good to be true. He’s a quality human being, more concerned about his kids getting through school and doing well in life than anything else, and they know it.” -- Bill Raftery, CBS Sports 2006 NCAA Tournament “I’ve seen and coached a lot of athletes down through the years but even today I can say that Mike McConathy is the most dedicated athlete I have ever been around. He was unrelenting in his drive to improve. He would often wear ankle weights, and he was constantly jumping rope. Even after practice, many nights he would return to the gym, calling a manager to come shag balls for him as he shot and shot and shot to improve. It was obvious to me early on that Mike was going to be a special player, but it was definitely his work ethic that set him apart over the course of his career.” -- college teammate, Cal-Riverside head coach Jim Wooldridge “I have never seen the drive Mike had in any other player on any level. Looking back, I realize that the things we coaches try to emphasize each day to our players are the things that Mike did back then. He was completely self-made and his numbers each year reflected how hard he was working. He could have started for North Carolina, UCLA or anybody else.” -- college teammate, now UTEP head coach Tim Floyd

McConathy is home: family ties to NSU span more than 50 years by Jerry Byrd, Bossier Press-Tribune

For more than 50 years, the name of McConathy has been synonymous with Northwestern State University basketball tradition. It all started on the Bienville Parish hill farm of O. L. McConathy in 1945, the year that World War II ended. McConathy’s oldest sons, Leslie and Johnny, were plowing corn that day when their work was interrupted by an automobile winding its way up the dirt road leading to the farmhouse. The three men in the automobile were representatives from the Louisiana Normal College in Natchitoches. The Bryceland High School basketball team had defeated Coushatta in a rally at Natchitoches, and the men made the trip to Bienville Parish to offer an athletic scholarship to Leslie McConathy. One of the men was the Normal football coach and athletic director, Harry “Rags” Turpin.  Another was Monty Cheeves, an assistant basketball coach.  The other was Joe Webb, a chemistry professor who later became head of the alumni association.  Webb’s son, Randy, is now the president of Northwestern. Legend has it that Leslie McConathy picked up his plow by one handle,  pointed in the direction of the farmhouse and told them he would meet them there as soon as he and Johnny plowed their way around the hill.  But Johnny’s memory is a bit foggy on that point. When they reached the house, the scholarship offer was made and accepted, sealed by a handshake, and the visitors left. A few weeks later, Leslie changed his mind after visiting Louisiana Tech at Ruston, and sent a letter to Coach Turpin informing him that he had decided to attend Tech.  Turpin returned to the McConathy farm to discuss the situation with Leslie and his father. O. L. McConathy asked Leslie if he told the people from Normal that he would go to their college. “Yes, sir,” he replied. “Then you told the people at Tech you would go to their college?” “Yes, sir.” “Well, that’s a mighty poor way to do business, isn’t it?  You gave your word to these people first, so that settles it.” “We lived right behind the school,” Johnny McConathy recalls.  Actually, it was six miles as the crow flies -- and much longer when Leslie rode a horse and Johnny pedaled a bicycle to the gym for basketball practice and games. Two years after his older brother went to the Natchitoches college, when Johnny was  a senior at Bryceland High (which had an enrollment of 69 students), no college recruiters made the trip to the McConathy farmhouse. One reason was that Johnny McConathy broke his ankle early in the season.  Another was the fact that he was a 6-1, 155-pound stringbean who would grow four inches taller in the next two years. Johnny hitchhiked to Natchitoches, where he found legendary coach H. Lee Prather playing a ping pong game. “What can you do?” Prather asked him between serves. “I can play ball,” said Johnny. Prather looked at him and shook his head.  “You don’t look like much of a ballplayer to me,” he said.  “I don’t have anything for you.”  Then he resumed his ping pong game. Johnny McConathy wasn’t easily discouraged. When classes started the following fall, he hitchhiked to Natchitoches again.  Once again, Prather told him no scholarship was available.  But after Johnny managed to hang around for a few days, Prather called in Leslie and told  him one of the boys he was expecting hadn’t shown up.  “I’ll give your brother an opportunity, one day at a time,” he said. By that time, the Natchitoches school had changed its name to Northwestern State College.  Leslie and Johnny McConathy both played on the 1948-49 Demon team which posted a 23-5 record and is still regarded as Prather’s greatest team.  So did another McConathy, Herschel, a distant relative from Florien. The McConathy clan was part of a group of settlers from Alabama who traveled west along the route of what is now Interstate 20 (because it was the high ground, and their wagons wouldn’t bog down in the mud.)  They hung  a left at Arcadia, where they founded the Alabama Baptist Church, and some stayed in Bienville Parish while others continued to Sabine, Vernon an Beauregard parishes. Johnny McConathy went from his “one day at a time” trial period to set a school scoring record and win All-America honors in 1952.  After a brief stint in the National Basketball Association, he coached Bossier High to its first state basketball championship in 1960 and later served as superintendent of Bossier Parish schools.  Leslie was superintendent of Richland Parish schools.

Northwestern State Demon Basketball After reading the preceding story, nationallyacclaimed Dayton Daily News columnist Tom Archdeacon spent time with Coach McConathy, his team and his family on the opening day of the 2001 NCAA Tournament. Archdeacon told the story of McConathy’s deep ties to Northwestern in the next morning’s Dayton Daily News. Portions of that column are excerpted here:

For Cinderella team, the McConathy magic is back March 14, 2001 by Tom Archdeacon, Dayton Daily News

Two generations of McConathy brothers have played for the Demons. Shown (left to right) standing in front of the rock crib at the McConathy family farm in Bienville Parish where the older McConathys grew up - George McConathy, Logan McConathy, John McConathy, Michael McConathy, and Leslie McConathy.

By the time younger brother George McConathy was a senior at Bryceland High, the Bienville Parish school had won a couple of state championships and Prather, who was then the Northwestern president, made the trip to the McConathy farmhouse himself to complete the clean sweep for the Demons.  George became an All-Gulf States Conference star for Demon teams coached by Charles “Red” Thomas. One generation (and several interviews) later, the McConathy connection led to Northwestern State. When he was a senior at Airline High, Mike McConathy was recruited by LSU, Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State.  He signed with Tech coach Scotty Robertson, who had coached at Shreveport’s Byrd High when Mike’s father, Johnny was coaching at Bossier High. McConathy became the second Tech player ever to score 2,000 points, passing the milestone in a game with Northwestern  in which the Demons’ Billy Reynolds also broke the 2,000 point barrier, something only 16 other players in state history have done.  Later, Mike McConathy became the first basketball coach at Bossier Parish Community College, and developed the team from scratch into a perennial national junior college powerhouse. Twice, he applied for coaching vacancies at Northwestern State and wasn’t selected.  But Mike McConathy, like his father, is not easily discouraged. He interviewed for the Demons’ coaching position again in March 1999, and got the job. When Johnny McConathy went to Northwestern State, the Demons were in the middle of a streak of 19 straight winning seasons under Prather, Thomas and Huey Cranford.  Six of those teams won 20 or more games. The Natchitoches school had only two losing basketball seasons in the first 47 years of its basketball program. That is the kind of tradition that Mike McConathy grew up hearing about from his father and uncles. That is the kind of achievement that Coach Mike McConathy had to his credit in 16 seasons as head basketball coach at Bossier Parish Community College. Nowadays at Northwestern, it’s clear Coach Mike McConathy has restored the same kind of  championship tradition to the Demon basketball program his family helped to shape.

The big, white-haired man in the Demon purple shirt laughed and nodded: Sure, he’d tell the story of the plow and the promise.... ....” That’s how this all began. It got me there and our brother George, one of our cousins, too, and now... it’s got Mike.” Mike McConathy is Johnny’s son and the miracle-working, second-year coach of Northwestern State. Tuesday night, that Louisiana field that was plowed 55 years ago bore its best basketball fruit at UD Arena as Northwestern State -- playing the first NCAA Tournament game in school history -- defeated Winthrop, 71-67, in the opening round game of this year’s tournament .... ....Across Blackburn Court, Doug Ireland, the Demons’ sports information director, looked out at the scene of the proud father and triumphant son -- who soon would be fighting tears when he talked of his parents and how they’d driven nearly 1,000 miles to be here with him, and nodded: “The McConathy magic is back. This is just an absolute great story.” Northwestern State and the McConathys is one of those charming Cinderella tales you get early in an NCAA Tournament. It’s a story of honor, undaunted belief and success.

Entering his eighth season with the Northwestern State men’s hoop squad, Jeff Moore continues to show why he is one of the anchors of the program. He played a big part on a staff that recruited the 2013 Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year (DeQuan Hicks) and Freshman of the Year (Jalan West) that led the Demons to a 14-seed in the NCAA tournament after a SLC Tournament Championship. The 23 games the Demons won in 2012-13 sits in second place for the school’s all-time history for wins in a season. Moore’s amazing work ethic and winning personality made him the perfect choice to fill the big shoes on the Demons’ staff when he replaced current McNeese State head coach Dave Simmons in 2006. He fits into a legacy of assistant coaches that Demons head coach Mike McConathy is known for being able to develop, three of which are now Division I head coaches- Buzz Williams at Marquette University, Simmons, and Mark Slessinger at New Orleans. Remarkably, after the departure of Simmons, the Demons didn’t miss a beat. Moore’s strategic acumen and teaching skills were tremendous assets as NSU won yet another Southland Conference title in his first season on staff, capturing the SLC East Division crown. In his first two seasons, the Demons made back-to-back trips to the SLC Tournament Finals. Moore’s motto: “preparation comes face-to-face with opportunity.” “It’ in leadership terms is the guy that makes it all work and pulls it all together. He knows all the necessary things to do for our program. Jeff Moore has ‘it’,” said McConathy who became Louisiana’s all-time leader in college wins in 2013. “His compassion for players and passion for doing the right things are impeccable. I truly have been blessed to have him on my staff.” Before coming to NSU, he spent five years (1997-2002) as a head coach and athletic director in the junior college ranks at John Wood (Ill.) Community College. There he made a run to the NJCAA regional tournament semifinals in 2001 and coached Ronnie Ross (Jeanerette, La.), who was ranked as a Top 10 junior college prospect at guard by TSN Basketball Magazine. Ross was the first of three Top 10 junior college prospects by position that Moore coached. Kurt Looby and Jessan Gray played for Moore at Tyler Junior College when he was an assistant from 2002-05. In his three seasons at Tyler, they qualified for the regional tournament every season. After TJC, he coached at Bossier Parish Community College as an assistant for one season before Coach Mike called his name. At BPCC, the Cavaliers won the Miss-Lou Conference and Tournament Championship and qualified for the Region XXII Tournament for the first time in five years. Moore not only has a commitment to excellence on the floor, but in the classroom. Ninety percent of Demon basketball players have graduated since Moore arrived, and NSU’s APR has continued to climb including 1000 marks in both 2010 and 2011. He’s recruited big-time players such as Koby Achane from Welsh, LA (Missouri Valley College’s all-time leading scorer), Will Mosley from Shreveport, LA (ranks fifth all-time in NCAA Division I history in blocks), and Trey Gilder (played with the Memphis Grizzlies from 2009-10). “He is a great teacher of the game, a tremendous worker, and has an extremely positive, warm personality,” said the Demons’ head coach. “He’s rooted in Louisiana, which is the heartbeat of our program, and he also has contacts around basketball that broaden our network.” Moore has coached over 80 players in his career from his home state of Louisiana. “He grew up with a dad who was a great basketball coach and the game is definitely a passion for him,” said McConathy. “From being a head junior college coach for five seasons, he understands what we have to do to not only keep our program achieving at a high level, but to move forward.” Moore’s father, the late Wilbert C. “Nooky” Moore, coached for 33 seasons in Louisiana at the high school (Slidell, Rayne, Notre Dame-Crowley, Lake Arthur) and college (assistant coach to Ralph Ward at McNeese State) levels. The younger Moore began his college-coaching career in 1995 at his alma mater, Missouri Valley College, after serving as a student assistant coach in 199495 following the end of his playing career. He was named an NAIA Scholar AllAmerican at Missouri Valley after earning National Junior College Athletic Association All-Academic honors at Marshalltown (Iowa) Community College, where he was also an honorable mention all-region performer. He earned a master’s degree in education, with an emphasis in athletic administration, from Northwestern State in 1997. Moore was a standout player at Lake Arthur High School and was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame. He played on the Louisiana Stars AAU state championship team and was chosen for the Louisiana Pepsi All-Stars Team that toured the Canary Islands. He continues to host summer camps in Jefferson Davis Parish starting in 1998 and also hosted senior workout camps in April in south Louisiana, providing an opportunity for hundreds of state prep players to obtain college scholarships at the junior college, NAIA and NCAA levels. His relationships with prep coaches have helped raise attendance at summer NSU camps and clinics to all-time highs. He and his wife Amy, a fourth and fifth grade teacher at the NSU Lab School, have a beautiful and active 6 1/2-year-old daughter, Gracie, and a son, Caige (for Dad’s Cajun heritage), who will turn two in January.

Lewit studied for a Bachelor’s in Communications in 1991, and Master’s in Education/Counseling in 1993, both from Salisbury. In high school, Lewit earned a combined nine varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball at Red Bank Regional HS (N.J.). As a senior, he was named to the all-county team in all three sports.

Furthermore, Lewit became the youngest Red Bank Regional Alumni to be inducted into the Red Bank Regional Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame in April, 2010. Lewit is an avid New York sports fan and supports the Yankees, Giants, Knicks and Islanders. His connections in sports to this day are outstanding. His basketball teammate at Salisbury, Russell Springmann, is an assistant coach with the Texas Longhorns basketball team.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates a half-century of the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. Commemorating its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 14 member universities in four states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its five decades of existence. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed the addition of Oral Roberts University in 2012-13, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma. Also, on July 1, 2013, the Southland welcomed four additional members: Abilene Christian University, Houston Baptist University, the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and the University of New Orleans. In addition to its newest members, the Southland Conference also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. An original Southland member, Abilene Christian rejoins the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, Incarnate Word and New Orleans gives the Southland a regular competitive presence in the key metropolitan areas of Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans. Southland cities encompass approximately 14.5 million people, and seven of its television markets rank among the top 100 in the U.S. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses nearly 140,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 800,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), Major League Baseball star Wade Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), and track and field Olympians Kenta Bell (Northwestern State), and Bobby Morrow and Billy Olson (both Abilene Christian). Other notable alums from current members include Grammy Award-winning musicians Frank Ocean (New Orleans), Don Henley and Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), and Ronnie Dunn (Abilene Christian), television personality and actress Ellen DeGeneres (New Orleans), current NFL standouts Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), and Daniel Manning (Abilene Christian), professional golfers Shawn Stefani and Chris Stroud (both Lamar) and Colin Montgomerie (HBU), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State), American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NFL Hall of Famer Jackie Harris (Northwestern State), former NFL standouts Bobby Hebert (Northwestern State), Gary Barbaro (Nicholls State), Wilbert Montgomery (Abilene Christian) and Gary Reasons (Northwestern State), former MLB stars Darryl Hamilton (Nicholls State) and Kevin Millar (Lamar), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), actors John Larroquette (New Orleans), and Ricardo Chavira and Jesse Borrego (both UIW) and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar and Stephen F. Austin). Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has broadcast more than 160 events. The network has expanded its reach to roughly 13 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in recent years, and has also gained national viewership through ESPN3 and Fox College Sports. In its first five years, the network has received recognition for its work, earning numerous College Sports Media and Telly Awards. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas, and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium, and after a successful three-year run, the partnership was rewarded with a three-year renewal to serve as the national championship host site through the 2015 season.

TOP 100 DEMONS OF THE CENTURY

Choosing the Top 100: To commemorate the Centennial Celebration of Demon Basketball for the 2012-13 season, a Top 100 Demon Basketball Players of the Century roster was selected. Selections were made by a blue-ribbon panel of media, coaches, former players and longtime observers of the NSU program. Players from this 2012-13 team were not eligible for consideration. The group was split into two different groups, the “Fantastic 50,” that spans from 1912-13 until 1975-76 and the “Fab 50” that spans from 1976-77 until 2012-13. The honorary captains were chosen by the panel as their stories emerged during the Top 100 selection process.

EX-NSU POINT GUARD MIKE BREY BEGINS 13TH YEAR COACHING NOTRE DAME While answering the first question at the July 15, 2000 press conference announcing his hiring as basketball coach at Notre Dame, Mike Brey talked about his days playing college basketball for Tynes Hildebrand at Northwestern State. Brey, a two-year starter for the Demons, still ranks eighth at NSU in career assists with 311 from 1977-80, an average of 4.3 per game. He led the team as a sophomore with 180, still the fifth-best single-season total in school history. In the moments after being introduced as the new Notre Dame coach, Brey listed Hildebrand alongside Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and Morgan Wooten, the legendary DeMatha High School coach, as major influences in his basketball philosophies. Brey played for Wooten, who helped Hildebrand recruit him. After college, Brey coached under Wooten, then moved to Duke and helped the Blue Devils reach six Final Fours and win two NCAA titles. Brey then took over as head coach at Delaware and was 99-52 there in five years before taking the Notre Dame job. When Brey took over, the Irish hadn’t been to the NCAA Tournament in 11 seasons. Now beginning his 13th season coaching the Irish, Brey has led Notre Dame to eight NCAA Tournaments, six first-round wins, and a trip to the 2003 Sweet Sixteen after winning the Big East Conference championship -- along with four NIT appearances. In 2010-11, Brey won the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Henry Iba Coach of the Year Award as the national coach of the year after leading the Fighting Irish to a No. 4 national ranking and a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Adding in his time at Delaware, Brey has a streak of 15 straight postseason appearances, including 10 NCAA Tournaments, and he has an overall 359-184 career record, 260-132 at Notre Dame.

NSU Retired Numbers

All-Conference Demons

Shown (l-r) are Demons whose jersey numbers have been retired: Vernon Wilson, Dr. Charles “Red” Thomas, and Johnny McConathy

CHARLES “RED” THOMAS

Northwestern State’s first All-America basketball player, winning that honor in 1941. He later became head basketball coach at NSU and guided the Demons to an outstanding 129-76 (.629) record in seven years at the helm, never experiencing a losing season during his entire tenure. Also an excellent trackman, Thomas was enshrined into the Northwestern State Graduate “N” Club Hall of Fame in 1971.

JOHNNY McCONATHY

Northwestern’s second All-America selection, the father of Demon baskeball coach Mike McConathy earned that distinction for his play during the 1951 season. McConathy set a school record for most points scored in a single season with 562 and a 21.6 average. He was invited to play in the College All-Star Game in Chicago and was the fifth pick in the first round of the 1951 NBA Draft by Syracuse. McConathy, who also participated in track at NSU, was a member of the 1973 class that was enshrined into the Graduate “N” Club Hall of Fame.

VERNON WILSON

Named as an All-America in 1973, Wilson remains NSU’s all-time leader in average pointsper-game with a career figure of 20.6 ppg, scoring 1,548 points in just 75 games. Wilson led the Demons in scoring during each of the 1971, ’72 and ’73 seasons, earning team MVP honors for those three years. Named the 1971 Gulf States Conference Rookie of the Year, first team all-Louisiana in ’72 and ’73, he was chosen to the first team of the NAIA District 30 squad that toured Israel while playing against that country’s Olympic team.

Northwestern State Demon Basketball

Northwestern State has a long, proud tradition of producing highly successful basketball coaches Northwestern State University’s long tradition of producing educators is easily traced back to 1884. It was then that Louisiana State Normal School was formed and dedicated to the preparation of teachers. Coaches are, in the most fundamental sense of the word, teachers. They issue highly technical instructions, they constantly test their students, and they seek to inspire them. Basketball coaches at Northwestern have been doing it for almost a century now. These “teachers” have turned out hundreds of great students who have become successful coaches. The tradition of producing basketball coaches from within the Demon program goes back to: H. Lee Prather, Charles”Red” Thomas, Huey Cranford, Tynes Hildebrand, Wayne Yates, Don Beasley, Dan Bell, J.D. Barnett and continues today under Mike McConathy. NSU’s acclaimed School of Health and Human Performance has produced many notable high school and college coaches. These coaches were taught by the likes of Buddy Bonnette and Jim Simmons. At last count the list of NSU graduates in the coaching ranks (past and present) in the sport of basketball is well over 500. Here is a partial list of some notable former Demon players and NSU graduates who have made impact in the coaching profession (please submit additions via e-mail to ireland@nsula.edu): Alumni Charlie Alexander - Head Coach Hornbeck High School Roman Banks - Head Coach Southern University Thurman Baptiste - former head coach, Natchitoches Central High School Dan Bell - former NSU head coach; head coach, Huntsville (Ala.)

PONTIAC GAME CHANGING PERFOMANCE

One shot, years in the making, and making a difference for years to come. There’s obvious historic sports significance of the game-winning 3-point basket just before the buzzer by NSU’s Jermaine Wallace in the 2006 NCAA Tournament win over 15th-ranked Iowa. It’s burned into the history of March Madness and is sure to reappear for years to come, in anticipation of more magic by underdog teams, and in comparison to fantastic finishes yet to be achieved. But the shot also has a more tangible impact at Northwestern, thanks to General Motors and its sponsorship of the Pontiac Game-Changing Performance General Motors Regional Director Tim Hughes (right) presents a check to Demon head contests awarding $100,000 to the uni- coach Mike McConathy, NSU President Dr. Randy Webb, and the Demon basketball team. versity whose moment in each March Madness is voted by fans as the most spectacular play of that year’s NCAA Tournament. There is a $5,000 winner for each of the four weeks in the tournament, and the “final four” winners compete against each other before the fans vote determines the top prize winner during the national championship game. The funds are designated for use in the university’s general scholarship fund. Fans in 2006 picked the Wallace game-winner as the play of the tournament. GM Regional director Tim Hughes came to the NSU campus to present the $100,000 check to President Dr. Randy Webb, Coach Mike McConathy and the Demons. McConathy and a committee including university faculty and administrators set up guidelines for the money. McConathy and the group set up an endowment with the money, so that it would benefit students for decades to come. The “Wallace Pontiac Game Changing Performance Scholarship” is dedicated to undergraduate students who have attended college for at least four years in pursuit of their first undegraduate degree. The $750 per/semester award goes to students who meet criteria including: • Leadership outside of the classroom • Participation and leadership in recognized student organizations, spirit groups, marching band, club sports or intercollegiate sports for athletes who have completed their eligibility • Community and university service Already, 17 NSU students have been helped by the scholarship. One grateful recipient is Sandra Shirah, a non-traditional student from Pineville. She was a criminal justice major and single mother who graduated in December of 2007. Her daughter was a student This photo by Gary Hardamon of Jermaine Wallace getting at Louisiana College while her mother attended Northwestern. ready to fire the winning shot.

Northwestern State Demon Basketball

This photo by Doug Daniels has become a popular symbol of success for Demon basketball.

Shirah took her classes online as many NSU students do. She saw an e-mail notice about the scholarship sent to all NSU undergraduates and applied for the scholarship. She had been affiliated with the Pineville police department for 20 years. She had a long list of community service activities, including teaching resume development to inner city residents. “If not for the Wallace Pontiac scholarship, I would not have been able to complete getting my undergraduate degree without taking out another student loan,” she said. That’s just one shining example of how the shot that made Demons’ dreams come true in March Madness will do the same thing for generations of NSU students. Coach Mike is a winning thoroughbred Mike McConathy is a winning coach, but Coach Mike is also a winning horse. Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and longtime Louisiana thoroughbred horse owner Firal Ryder, a season ticket holder, named one of his horses after the Demons’ coach. “Coach Mike” has lifetime earnings of more than $300,000. She – yes, that’s right, this “Coach Mike” is a filly – made her big splash two years ago at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans, wining a $50,000 allowance race three years ago, her second win.

Northwestern State Demon Basketball

Dr. Randall J. Webb Northwestern State President

Dr. Randall J. Webb stated when he became Northwestern State University’s 18th president in July of 1996 that his primary objective would be to help make his Alma Mater the best institution it could be. In his 18th year, it’s clear that Webb is achieving that admirable goal. Enrollment has reached record levels during Webb’s tenure as president and exceeded 10,500 for the first time in history in the fall of 2004. Webb has also been at the forefront in recent years of moving the university toward higher admission standards, which has resulted in some enrollment declines but in the enrollment of students with greater academic potential

and aptitude. Retention has increased at the university, the average ACT score of students has gone up, and high school student leaders are enrolling in Northwestern in record numbers. There has been a substantial increase in the number of high school valedictorians and salutatorians among first-time freshmen at the university. External funding for NSU has also increased dramatically under Webb’s leadership. In the first capital campaign in its history, the university received $32.7 million to far exceed its goal of $18.84 million. That funding included the establishment of numerous endowed chairs and professorships to enhance academic programs at the university. In addition to the private funding, Northwestern has received more grant monies in recent years from state and federal agencies and private foundations than at any time since its founding in 1884. Webb has also expanded the university’s outreach by spearheading the development at NSU of the largest electronic education and distance learning network of any university in Louisiana. NSU offers courses and degree programs to students across the nation and world through Internet and compressed video. Millions of dollars have been obtained during Webb’s presidency for new and renovated facilities. A new $6.9 million Wellness, Recreation and Activity Center opened on the campus in 2005; and Morrison Hall, the Family and Consumer Sciences Building, and Williamson Hall have been completely renovated and restored. A new Student Services Center on the site of the former West Caspari Hall was completed in May 2012. Over $32 million in construction by a private company has added two modified residence halls to the campus in recent years. Funding has also been obtained to rebuild the East Caspari Hall and replace the underground electrical distribution system. Northwestern academic programs and athletic teams continue to receive positive national recognition. The Computer Information Systems program, for example, won five consecutive national championships in academic competition in systems analysis, and the NSU men’s basketball team defeated Iowa in the NCAA national championship tournament. A former center on the Northwestern football team, Webb is an avid supporter of the university’s athletic programs and has held positions of leadership at the national level in intercollegiate athletics. He has served as chair of the board of directors of the Southland Conference and has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Executive Council and the NCAA Division I Board of Directors that oversee all major policy decisions by the governing body for major college sports. He currently serves as the Southland Conference representative on the NCAA Presidential Advisory Group. A 1965 graduate of Northwestern in mathematics and business education, Webb earned a master of science degree in mathematics from NSU in 1966. He received a doctorate in education from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1971 with a concentration in mathematics and research. Webb was a member of the faculty of Longwood College in Farmville, Va, from 1966 until 1974. He served as Director of Higher Education and Teacher Certification in the Louisiana Department of Education from 1974 through 1976. He moved to Southeastern Louisiana University in 1976 and in 13 years there held positions as director of institutional research, EEO officer, registrar and member of the mathematics faculty. He became Dean of Instruction and Graduate Studies and professor of mathematics at Northwestern in 1989. In that position, he was responsible for campus-wide policy development, planning, advancement, and review of both graduate and undergraduate programs. While Webb was in that position, graduate enrollment increased by 35 percent, and internal funding for faculty research increased by 200 percent. As dean, Webb proposed the concept for NSU’s successful Freshman Connection Program and served as a member of the writing team for a grant proposal that resulted in a five year, $1.7 million Title III grant to improve student retention. He also chaired the steering committee for NSU’s Self Study for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. He has been active in the community as a member of the board of directors of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches, the Natchitoches Historic Foundation, the NatchitochesNorthwestern Symphony Society, Rotary Club, and the First Baptist Church. Webb and his wife Brenda have two daughters, both honor graduates of Northwestern. Tamara and her husband, former NSU All-America baseball pitcher Reggie Gatewood, live in Long Valley,N.J., with their children Tyler and Ava. Lauren is married to former outstanding NSU baseball player Nick Simokaitis, and they live in St. Louis with their sons Nicholas and Benjamin.

Jerry Pierce

Vice President • External Affairs Only a handful of people have served Northwestern State as long as Jerry Pierce has, and nobody has done so in a more understated manner. In his 49th year on the university’s staff, Pierce’s impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches is indelible. He’s never wanted or gotten top billing, but consistently, he gets results to benefit the university. He begins his 23rd year as vice president of external affairs at Northwestern. A significant aspect of his job is oversight of intercollegiate athletics. Pierce works closely with athletic director Greg Burke and all NSU coaches and staff members to keep Northwestern athletics competing at a championship level week after week, month after month and year after year. Pierce is an avid tennis player who has been a member of USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state championships, five regional titles and one national championship. Well before moving into the executive position, Pierce had already served his alma mater, adopted hometown and state with distinction. In his role as vice president, he oversees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media relaNSU Athletic Council tions and assists President Dr. Randall J.

His salesmanship and managerial skills were instrumental in convincing Tri-Star Productions to film the 1989 smash hit movie Steel Magnolias, with an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Sally Field and Dylan McDermott in Natchitoches and on the NSU campus. The movie’s impact on tourism in Natchitoches continues to resonate more than two decades later.

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File

AGE: 57 (Born Oct. 22, 1956) • HOMETOWN: Alliance, Ohio • HIGH SCHOOL: Marlington ’74 • COLLEGE: Mt. Union ’78 (cum laude) POSTGRADUATE: Kent State ’86 • BEFORE HE WAS A.D.: Sports writer, Alliance (Ohio) Review, 1972-78; director of news and sports information, Hiram (Ohio) College (1978-85); administrative intern, NSU athletics, 1985-86; director, NSU Athletic Association, 1986-92; director of athletic development, University of Akron, 1992-96. BIG FAN OF: Cleveland Browns, Indians and Cavaliers • INTERESTS: Working out, watching ESPN and VH1 Classic, family outings.

In his 18th year as director of athletics at Northwestern State, Greg Burke has received national acclaim for the job he’s done in his adopted hometown. Burke has been athletics director at Northwestern since Aug. 29, 1996, when his first day included speaking at the annual NSU/Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. Burke is the longest serving AD at any Louisiana or Southland Conference institution. He has steered NSU athletics to many of its greatest accomplishments while overseeing a program that has fielded championship caliber teams in nearly all of the school’s NCAA Division I sports. Last February, he was presented the “Outstanding Contributions to Amateur Football Award” by the north Louisiana chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame. Two years ago, he was included among 29 winners of the Under Amour AD of the Year Award presented by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). Burke was the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. About to begin a term on the NCAA Division I Committee on Academic Performance, Burke previously served on the prestigious NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet. He previously served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee (1999-2002) and concurrently served a term on the eight-member NCAA FCS Committee that administers the national playoffs. Burke has served as a site supervisor for Football Championship Subdivision playoff games across the nation and he is regarded as one of the country’s premiere advocates of FCS football. Burke’s 17 years as athletic director include 35 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 59 All-American and Academic All-American student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Twenty NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or WNIT postseason competition. All of the school’s athletic facilities have undergone nearly $7 million in improvements in the past four years. Burke spearheaded a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues; the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues; and a $500,000 softball grandstand project completed earlier this year. NSU in 2004-05 became the first (and remains the only) Southland Conference member in the league’s five decades of history to sweep football, men’s basketball and baseball championships in the same athletic year. It’s been done only once in Southeastern Conference history, by Alabama in 1933-34, and only four times in Big Ten Conference history, the last time by Michigan State in 1979-80. Those accomplishments have come with one of the more modest athletic budgets in the state and conference. Burke’s management skill and fundraising ability have been pivotal. Burke has displayed a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches, notably current staffers Mike McConathy, Louisiana’s all-time career basketball wins leader; 2013 Louisiana softball coach of the Year Donald Pickett; Hugh and Stephanie Hernesman, who just led the volleyball program to its best season in the 31-year history of the program; and several whose success at Northwestern State propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. To that end, tremendous competitive strides have been made in women’s athletics under his guidance. Along with the aforementioned volleyball surge, NSU’s soccer program was the first in Louisiana to reach the NCAA Tournament. Softball and tennis made NCAA Tournament appearances in 2013, the second in four seasons for Lady Demon tennis. Burke has established a high standard for NSU Athletics in academic achievement and community service. The academic accomplishments are reflected annually in the NCAA’s APR and GSR studies. Community service by NSU student-athletes, coaches and staff more than doubled to over 5,000 hours in 2009-10 and has remained at that level. Burke spearheaded the adoption of the slogan “Great Tradition, Brighter Future” for NSU Athletics, and the creation of NSU Athletics “Cornerstones” for student-athletes: “Academic Achievement, Personal Responsibility, Competitive Success … Every Minute, Every Hour, Every Day!” In 2005, Burke was one of three recipients of the All-America Football Foundation’s Gen. Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award and that same year, was also tabbed as one of two Natchitoches Parish Cenla Newsmakers of 2005 by the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper’s editorial staff. He received the 2006 “Outstanding Alumni Award” from his alma mater, Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio, recognizing his community service and professional achievements. Burke became one of only 21 alumni honored since the award was instituted in 1982. Burke is a past president of the Natchitoches Kiwanis Club and remains active in that civic group. He has also been part of the steering committee for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival and is a former president of the Natchitoches Area Jaycees. He is involved with the American Heart Association and was 2010 March of Dimes chairman locally. His wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 19-year-old daughter, Catherine, graduated from St. Mary’s High Burke and his wife, Susu, and daughter, Catherine School in May of 2012 and attends Louisiana Tech.

Since 2006, Northwestern State University has made numerous paradigm shifts in how it addresses the needs of student-athletes; however, one thing has been consistent in that its student-athletes are winners on the field and in the classroom. All have heard about higher educational institutions being penalized by the NCAA for academic improprieties. NSU has attempted to be a model program of “Doing Things the Right Way,” by following the Athletic Department motto: Great Tradition – Brighter Future.
