And Adam Jonson, NSU’s former ticket manager, was a student and graduate assistant in the SID office. In 1981-82, while an undergraduate at Northwestern, Ireland worked as chief of the Shreveport Times Natchitoches Bureau, coordinating news coverage of an eight-parish region along the Red River. From 1982-85, he was assistant SID at Southwestern Louisiana, working with a men’s basketball program that made three straight postseason tournament appearances. He won CoSIDA publications and writing awards while at USL.

2011-12 Season Outlook

Lady Demons Turn To Young But Experienced Group For 2011-12 One would think after looking at the Northwestern State Lady Demon basketball roster, the 2011-12 season should take the shape of being a rebuilding year. After all, it features just two seniors and three juniors with eight freshmen and sophomores – five of those freshmen. But don’t tell that to eighth year head coach Jennifer Graf. “I wouldn’t consider it a rebuilding year,” said Graf. “I know you look at the roster and see all of the young names on there, especially with the five freshmen. That’s a lot. But we return so much playing experience with Ronikka (Drake) and Jordi (James), Trudy (Armstead), Meredith (Graf), and JB (Jasmine Bradley). They all have so much time on the floor.” The Lady Demons will put all that experience to work on Wednes-

Jordi James returns as the team’s top scorer.

day night at 7 when they open preseason practice in Prather Coliseum. The workout is open to the public. “This is a very exciting time for us,” said Graf who will be entering her eighth season at the helm after leading her team to a fifth straight postseason appearance last year and nearly upsetting Lamar in the first round of the Southland Conference Tournament as the number seven seed. “Everyone had tremendous offseason workouts and have come back in great shape.” Those returning five players mentioned above accounted for 60 percent of the Lady Demons’ scoring last season and 59 percent of the minutes played. The group combined to start 96 games in 2010-11 as James started in 28 of 30 games while Armstead started in 27 of 28. James and Armstead ranked 1-2 on the team in scoring last season – James averaging 12.2 points per game while Armstead notched 10.8 ppg. “Jordi came along really well for us last year and she does a lot of good things for us,” said Graf. “Ronikka was another junior college transfer from last year and went into a slump at the end of the season, but she’s really worked hard during the offseason and is such a better ball player right now.” “I’ve been really proud of those two, and several of our other kids,” said Graf. “You can really tell how hard a player has worked over the summer – those two seniors and a handful of others, it’s just a night and day difference from last year to right now. You can tell that they’ve really dedicated themselves to be better players.”

Sophomore Jasmine Bradley led the team in rebounding and steals last season.

One of the surprises this season could be from the play of sophomore guard Tiandra Williams. Williams played in just 10 games last season, mainly in mop-up duty, and scored eight points. But despite her lack of playing time, the potential of being a really good ball player was deep down. That should burst out this season. “I think she’s going to wow a lot of people,” said Graf. “She reminds me a lot of (Lady Demon greats) Diamond Cosby and Kia Converse. Neither of those two barely got off the bench as freshmen and when they arrived for their sophomore seasons, they just exploded with production, and that was a direct result of their offseason workouts.

dra is falling right in line with them.” Drake is expected to run the point but will be challenged by true freshman Arianne Ausmer, who is a gifted and talented point guard. “She’s a true point guard,” said Graf. “She’s got tremendous talent

and sees the floor very well.” At the 2-guard, James has that position locked down while Graf will see ample playing time. James knocked down 31 3-point goals last season and connected on 102 of 124 from the free throw line. “Jordi’s shot is just tremendous right now,” said Graf. “She has really worked hard in the offseason. As has Meredith. I’m looking for a lot of good things from those two this year.” Sophomore guard Jasmine Bradley (9.1 ppg, 6.9 rpg) returns from a stellar freshman season that saw her lead the team in rebounding and steals (62). With her aggressive style of play, she can play either the inside or the outside. Under the goal will be Armstead along with fellow twin tower Jasmine Upchurch (5.4 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 21 blocks). Upchurch, who stands at 6-foot-3, could be player who makes or breaks the season. “The thing with Jasmine,” said Graf, “is that she can be an all-conference player one game, and not

one the next. If she stays consistent with her playing like she’s capable of, that’ll be a huge boost to the type of season we can have.”

Lady demon Coaching Staff

Jennifer Graf Head Coach • 8th Season (100-108) Northwestern State (‘00) She’s still one of the youngest head coach in the country, coaching one of the country’s younger teams, one that features just two seniors and 11 freshmen and sophomores. At the age of 33, Jennifer Graf is the ideal person for that scenario. Beginning her eighth season in charge, she enters her 15th year in the Lady Demon basketball family. This is home to her. It is family. Since she headed four hours north from her parents’ home in Loranger, a half-hour east of Baton Rouge, to begin her freshman season as a Lady Demon in August, 1996, Graf has immersed herself in Natchitoches, at Northwestern State and most of all, in the Lady Demon basketball program. Her dad, Glen, a contractor, built a house for her in Natchitoches during her playing days. She still lives there. Already she was committed to working as a graduate assistant coach while earning her master’s in sports administration. Jennifer had hopes that then-assistant coach Wendy Schuller might get a head coaching position and that their mentor, longtime Lady Demon head coach James Smith, would tap her to replace Schuller. After all, it was during Smith and Schuller’s home visit to the Graf residence outside Loranger that Jennifer tipped her hand. Coach Smith asked about Graf’s academic interests and if she had any career plans yet. Without hesitation, she said she wanted to be a college basketball coach. Smith chuckled, looked over at his loyal assistant Schuller, and said, “Wendy, you better watch out, sounds like she’s coming after your job!” “No,” said Graf, laughing, “Coach Smith, I’m coming after yours!” Who knew? She wasn’t scheming, just dreaming. But believing. And without even trying, she gradually collected believers. Let’s just say that by the time her playing days ended, it was a possibility that had occurred to Smith and others close to the program. That’s just how mature Graf was, with a presence far past her years. It’s a cool, playful confidence, without a trace of arrogance, relying on unyielding faith and a burning passion to achieve excellence. Before her junior season as a player, Graf began teaching a Catechism class (bible studies for Catholic youth) at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. This is the ninth year she’ll carve out time on Wednesday nights in midseason to serve her church family. Born June 11, 1978 in Covington, Graf began her first season as the youngest head coach in Division I, following the footsteps of such legendary coaches like Pat Summitt (22 years old when hired at Tennessee), Jody Conradt (28 years old at Sam Houston State), Bobby Knight (25 years old at Army) and Mike Krzyzewski (28 years old at Army) as coaches who got their first head coaching job at an early age. When Coach Smith stepped to the podium on Sept. 1, 2004, to announce his retirement, it marked the end of an apprenticeship for Graf, whom he had groomed as his successor for much of the two previous seasons, the final one ending with Southland Conference regular-season and tournament championships and an NCAA Tournament appearance. NSU had an 86-32 record in her four seasons as an assistant coach, including a 63-15 mark in Southland Conference play. In her four seasons (1996-2000) as a guard for Coach Smith, the Lady Demons were 64-39. In her last nine seasons with the program, NSU has six years of 22 or more victories. She and former assistant coach Kia Converse are the only Lady Demon basketball players to win Southland Conference championship rings as a player and as a coach. Her energetic, enthusiastic and positive approach is contagious. If you’re not smiling when you arrive in the Lady Demon basketball office, you soon will be. As an assistant coach, Graf had a wide range of responsibilities, both coaching and administrative, along with serving as recruiting coordinator. She handled the scouting reports and set the defensive schemes for each game. Her defensive strategy was cited by Texas-Arlington coach

Lady Demon Coaching Staff Donna Capps as well as Coach Smith as a pivotal factor in the 2004 SLC Tournament championship game when the Lady Demons held UTA to 28 percent shooting. In her first year as head coach, she had to grow a point guard thanks to the graduation of all-time great Cooda Dobin, now an assistant coach on Graf’s staff. Shooting guard Sheronda Bell was put in place, and by year’s end, she ranked among the nation’s leaders in assists and was atop the SLC rankings. Graf guided her team, which struggled mightily in December and early January, into playing its best in the SLC stretch run, when the Lady Demons posted 10 wins in 11 games to secure a third-place regular-season finish. They wound up 17-12 and reached the SLC Tournament semifinals. Her second and third seasons were part of a rebuilding campaign with a slew of newcomers. Three years ago, the squad improved dramatically with a .500 record and a fifth place finish in the league standings, and two years ago, her team topped that with 18 wins - the most in a season in her short career. Her approach to her job mirrors her “gym rat” mentality that turned heads prior to her senior season. Graf finished her junior year making only 1 of her last 28 shots, but her defense, rebounding, intelligent and unselfish play kept her in the lineup down the stretch as the Lady Demons won the 1999 SLC title with a 22-7 record. She virtually took up residence in Prather Coliseum in the spring and summer before her senior year, honing her game with intense shooting drills and workouts. The payoff: a 24-6 record in her senior year, honorable mention All-SLC honors with a 10.4 scoring average and the second-best single-season free throw percentage (84.7) in Lady Demon history. Graf played in 110 games for Northwestern State, winning 74, starting 48 times, including all 30 games in her senior year when she raised her free throw percentage 22 points above her career average. She was a three-time Academic All-SLC selection and won the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ “Lady Demon of the Year” award as a senior. She led Loranger High School to the Louisiana Class 2A championship, the school’s first state title, in her senior season, earning state Class 2A Most Valuable Player honors and sharing the overall Sweet 16 state tournament MVP award. Although Natchitoches is home, a big part of her heart remains in Loranger, where her parents, Glen and Debbie, still reside. She stays in constant contact with her mom and her dearest friend, former Lady Demon manager Jennifer Orsi Harrelson, an elementary school teacher and mother to Graf’s godchild, Aidan Kate, and sons, Dominic Matthew, Ryan Joshua, and Cole Michael. She’s also “Aunt Jen” to her niece Kaitlyn and nephews, Jonathan, Christopher, and Gabriel, children of her older brother Michael, a hydraulic engineer living in Pennsylvania, and her sister-in-law, Linnaya. The stereo in her office is usually tuned to contemporary Christian and Rockin’ 80s among her favorites. She enjoys spring and summer off-road adventures in her Jeep, in between working camps, jet skiing on Sibley Lake and keeping in touch with friends and former teammates near and far. Only a few days at a time usually pass without her visiting with Coach Smith, and not a day goes by that she doesn’t remind her young team about the rich tradition and family values at the core of Lady Demon basketball -- a legacy that she’s sure to enhance in the seasons ahead.

Lady demon Coaching Staff

What they’re saying about Lady Demon Head Coach Jennifer Graf... “Each year brings its own set of new opportunities and challenges, and that’s what is so exciting about college athletics. Undoubtedly, I have learned much through my years as a part of the Lady Demon program - not only during my time as a player, but also through my years as a coach. “I was blessed to learn under a legendary coach, James Smith, and I have a tremendous resource in another amazing coach, Mike McConathy, down the hall. “I love the staff we have put together this year. Bob moves into our recruiting coordinator position. Bringing back one of NSU’s best point guards in Cooda was a no-brainer, and adding the experience of someone like Shannon Johnson has made this staff complete. It’s been a blessing to work with such talented and passionate people. “This season, our girls have been working extremely hard, and they know that our goals are just as high as they have ever been for a Lady Demon program. Excellence is expected from this team, and although the expectation is high, it is one that is met with a willingness to achieve that goal. “After meeting with each player before practice began, each stated that they want more from this season than last. I’m sure there will still be highs and lows throughout the year, but I am eager to start the journey and achieve the success this program has known for so many years. “ -- Head Coach Jennifer Graf when asked about how special this year’s team and coaches are “Coach Graf is so well grounded and steady, she’s a young person with unique and special qualities that made her the slam-dunk pick to take over the Lady Demon basketball program.” “Jennifer understands what this program’s about, being a very successful Lady Demon player herself before she went into coaching. For 10 years, she’s been totally committed to this university and upholding the great tradition in our women’s program -- not only winning lots of games, but doing it with class and representing NSU the right way. She holds those virtues close to her heart, that it’s special to be part of Northwestern Lady Demon basketball, and it definitely is an approach that is passed along to her players.” “The transformation from player to coach is always a difficult process, but Jennifer crossed that boundary as fast as anybody I’ve ever been around. She was the kind of player a coach like me appreciated watching, because she worked so hard, played so smart, cared so much, and she has carried that over to her coaching career.” -- Mike McConathy Head Coach, NSU Demons

“Being an NSU grad, Graf was the epitome of what a stu dent-athlete should be and continues to set that same example for all young coaches.  Her tireless work ethic, ability to communicate with her players and community outreach will only further push the envelope of Lady Demon Basketball.” -- Eileen Schmidt, head softball coach, Virginia    Head coach, NSU, 2002-04 “The Lady Demon Basketball program is in good hands. Jennifer was a hard-working, scrappy player who maximized her potential for the Lady Demons.  She has displayed that same tenacity and work ethic in her coaching career.  I know her players will play hard for her.” “But Jennifer’s biggest strength as a person comes in her character.  She has a high moral standard and a deep faith in God that will guide her throughout her career.” -- Joe Peterson, missionary Christ’s Gift Academy, Kenya    Assistant men’s basketball coach, NSU, 1999-2002 “From the days we were recruiting her, Jennifer Graf had a special presence, just a very confident personality without a hint of being arrogant. She came to us planning to be a basketball coach and during her years as a player, she soaked up every ounce of teaching we could offer and wanted more.” “We won a conference championship in her junior season, and I’ve never seen a player work any harder than she did between her junior and senior seasons to improve her game, with great success.” -- Wendy Luebbers Schuller Head Coach, Eastern Washington    Assistant Coach, NSU Lady Demons, 1991-2000

Lady demon Coaching Staff

Bob Austin Assistant Coach • Recruiting Coordinator 7th season at NSU • 3rd on Lady Demon Staff Alaska- Ancorage (‘04) Having demonstrated several trademarks in five seasons at Northwestern State while helping the Demons to two straight Southland Conference titles, the first in a dream season in 2005-06, Bob Austin has changed offices to the Lady Demon side of the coliseum and will step foot on the court this season in his third as a Lady Demon assistant. Very rarely will you see Austin without a smile on his face, he is always working, handling his responsibilities on the basketball staff flawlessly. He is always willing to lend a hand in whatever way he could, even if it means getting a split lip while participating in an early season low-post drill. In addition to his regular coaching duties in assisting with the post position, Austin is also the team’s recruiting coordinator and recruits the junior college ranks, especially in east Texas. He also has a hand in scouting opponents, assists with fundraising activities and community service projects, and monitors the academic progress of selected players. Austin’s debut with the Demons made him one of a handful of people to play in the NCAA Division II Tournament and to be on the basketball staff of a team playing in the Division I NCAA Tournament. Austin worked with both the men’s and women’s basketball programs five years ago at Otero Junior College in La Junta, Col., near his hometown of Highlands Ranch. Both Otero teams had outstanding seasons - the men, under coach Tim Moser, went 21-9, and the women, playing for coach Taylor Wagner, were 19-8. He knew the territory, playing two seasons at Otero before signing with Alaska-Anchorage. He was voted the team’s “Most Inspirational Player” and “Defensive Player of the Year” by his teammates in his senior year and received the “Rebounders Award” by the basketball boosters club. His Alaska-Anchorage team reached the Division II NCAA Tournament, falling in the first round to BYU-Hawaii. Austin graduated from Alaska-Anchorage in 2004 with an emphasis in history after being an honors graduate at Otero. Coach Bob and his wife, Kalie, were married in May of 2009. The 31-year-old is the son of Lou and Joanne Austin. His father retired from a railroad retirement system and his mother is a retired special education teacher. His parents are avid NSU fans, and his dad has been known to get into pickup games with the basketball staff. His younger brother Matt played basketball at Pfieffer (N.C.) University. Coach Bob and his wife, Kalie 34

Lady Demon Coaching Staff

Shannon Johnson Assistant Coach 1st Season South Carolina (‘96) Olympic Gold medalist, four-time WNBA All-Star, and college basketball All-American Shannon Johnson is the newest member of the Northwestern State Lady Demon basketball staff, recently announced by head coach Jennifer Graf. Johnson replaced Trina Frierson who left the collegiate coaching ranks in August and returned home to Vicksburg for family reasons. Johnson, a graduate of the University of South Carolina where she earned her bachelor of science degree in retailing in 1996, was a member of the 2004 United States basketball team that won a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. She also earned a gold medal at the World Championships in China in 2002. “I couldn’t be more fortunate to get somebody like Shannon,” said Lady Demon head coach Jennifer Graf. “I didn’t know her before this process. But through the interview process and getting to know her, I loved her passion, energy, and her enthusiasm.” At South Carolina, Johnson was an Associated Press All-America player and finalist for the Wade Trophy (best player in Division I) in 1996 when she ranked second in the nation in scoring with a 24.7 points per game average – still a USC record. She is the only player in South Carolina history to average more than 20 points per game for three consecutive seasons (1994-96) and her 2,230 career points ranks second on the school’s all-time scoring list. She earned first team All-SEC honors from 1994 to 1996. “With her experience, she’s played with numerous teams in the WNBA and overseas for years. Obviously I know who she is,” said Graf. “She’s one of the best players in the country. Having her here is just tremendous. When she walks into the gym, her love for the game just oozes out of her. The kids eat it up and they get excited because she’s so energetic and passionate.” Johnson, a guard during her playing days standing at 5-foot-7, had an 11-year career in the Women’s National Basketball Association, playing for the Seattle Storm, Houston Comets, Detroit Shock, San Antonio Stars, Connecticut Sun, and Orlando Miracle. She was a four-time WNBA All-Star selection and a three-time all-star second team honoree. She also competed in the American Basketball League for three seasons and was a 1998 ABL All-Star when playing for the Columbus Quest. Her 1997 and 198 teams won the ABL championship. In 1996, Johnson was a member of the Jones Cup Gold Medal team, one year after earning a Bronze medal in the Jones Cup. She competed in the World University Games in 1997 and was a member of the 1998-99 United States Women’s National Team. The 37-year old played internationally in Spain in 2000-03, 2006, and 2009-11, and won two championships and was the recipient of the Copa De La Reina Most Valuable Player award. Off the court, Johnson is very active in the community having participated in the WNBA/NBA Care Program that encourages children to stay fit and take care of their neighborhoods. In 2001, she served on the Board of Directors for the Osceola Wish Foundation.

Robert Crew tions 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 will be complete early next year. 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 campuswide 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 Natchitoches-Northwestern 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 McKinney, Texas, withtheir 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 Jerry Pierce is the Cal Ripken of the Northwestern State athletic program. Day after day, year after year, Pierce is in the lineup, fielding his position with aplomb, and delivering at the plate, knocking a ball out of the park from time to time but always taking an understated profile, seeing himself as a role player. Beginning his 47th year on the university’s staff, Pierce’s impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches can’t be measured as easily as Ripkin’s Baseball Hall of Fame statistics, but they are equally indelible. He begins his 21st 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 NSU Athletic Council had already served his alma mater, adopted hometown and Jody Biscoe (Chair) state with distinction. In his role as vice president, he oversees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, Dion Boyett public and media relations and assists President Dr. Randall J. Lyn Christophe Webb in governmental affairs activities. Many of those duties Dwight Epperson were his since the 1970s as he worked under four previous Kelee Grimes (Student) presidents as Northwestern advanced from NAIA to NCAA College Division to NCAA Division I athletic status in 1977. Marcus Jones A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer Jennifer Kelly for the Demon football team during his college years, working closely with legendary coach Jack Clayton. After earning Melissa Kelly his journalism degree, Pierce went to work for the New OrDr. Michal Land leans Times Picayune, serving as a reporter and editor. He was Michelle Pichon named executive sports editor at the age of 24. In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and Kristi Simms returned to NSU as sports information director. He was proMark Swanstrom moted to news bureau director two years later and assumed Ed Ward additional responsibilities in athletics, alumni affairs and othWill Watson (Student) er areas through the years. He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility in Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing Ex-Officio Members a home for an entity created in 1958. He established annual Greg Burke induction activities that remain in place nearly four decades later, and served as director of the Hall for 19 years until his Carrie Crowell promotion to vice president forced him to step aside from the Dustin Eubanks volunteer post. Dr. Patrice Moulton He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) Dr. Vicki Parrish and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of Jerry Pierce the Southland and has served the conference through other offices and committee positions. In 1994, he was named one of Louisiana’s 20 most influential sports figures by the Times-Picayune. Also on the list were New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, LSU athletic director Joe Dean and basketball coach Dale Brown, and Grambling football coaching legend Eddie Robinson. 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. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana’s higher education system. He is also a popular after dinner speaker and master of ceremonies who has spoken at hundreds of events since 1965. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Pierce is a member of the Journalism Department faculty.  He is the author of one book and editor of two others and has written thousands of editorials, columns, features and other articles for newspapers and magazines. Pierce and his wife Regina, a teacher, live on Cane River Lake in Natchitoches. He has two sons, Randy and Rick, both NSU graduates; and three grandchildren, twins Evan and Amanda, 22, and Miranda, 11, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie.

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File AGE: 54 (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 the midst of his 16th 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 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 year, 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).  He was also among four winners chosen to be involved in a Street and Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal panel discussion on current Division I athletics issues. Joining NSU’s Burke were Purdue’s Morgan Burke (no relation), Samford’s Bob Roller and Lee Fowler of North Carolina State, with the transcript of their discussion distributed to national media by the Sports Business Daily.  Burke just completed a term as the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. Burke’s 15 years as athletic director include 32 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 54 All-American and Academic All-American student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Seventeen NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or WNIT postseason competition. Under his guidance, Northwestern State has led all 13 public institutions in Louisiana, and all 12 Southland Conference institutions, in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate and Graduation Success Rate reports. The school’s athletic facilities have undergone nearly $7 million in improvements in the past four years. 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 generated a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues and spearheaded the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues.  Burke has displayed a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches, including several whose success at Northwestern State has propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. Some of his best hires remain on staff at NSU. Two, basketball’s Mike McConathy and soccer’s Jimmy Mitchell, guided Northwestern in NCAA Tournament play in their second seasons and have been back to postseason since. NSU’s 2006 basketball team scored one of the most memorable upsets in the history of March Madness, coming from 17 down to stun No. 15-ranked Iowa 64-63. Burke has selected head coaches who have subsequently been hired by Alabama, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Kentucky, Virginia, Mississippi State and Wichita State. 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. The NSU soccer program was the first one in Louisiana ever to reach the NCAA Tournament and remains the only one with multiple appearances. Volleyball set attendance records and has made its best-ever showings in conference play in recent years. In softball, NSU posted the nation’s most improved win total in 2010 regular-season play under second-year coach Donald Pickett, and moved among league contenders in 2011. The Lady Demons joined Stanford as the only women’s tennis programs in the country in 2010 with only one regular-season loss, while sweeping Southland regular-season and tournament titles and making a first-ever NCAA Team Tournament appearance. While on-field success by Demon and Lady Demon teams has been a source of pride for NSU supporters, Burke is equally proud of the tone which has been set within the NSU athletic program as it relates to 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 remained at that level in 2010-11. 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. In June 2006, he was a featured speaker and panelist at the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors convention in New Orleans, addressing members of the College Athletic Business Managers of America and also participating in a panel discussion of “Fundraising from an Athletic Director’s Perspective” speaking to the National Association of Athletic Development Directors. Since 2007, Burke has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet, a 49-person panel which makes recommendations to the NCAA Board of Directors on key issues facing Division I athletics. 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. Since his committee term expired, 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.            In 2004, NSU received the highest possible rating, “fully certified,” from the National Collegiate Athletic Association, affirming that Northwestern operates its athletic program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership. 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. He and his wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 17-year-old daughter, Catherine, is captain of the St. Mary’s High School cheerleading squad, in addition to being a point guard on the basketball team and a member of the tennis Greg Burke with wife, Susu, and daughter, Catherine. team.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achieve ment as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators more than 45 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and re spected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration ever for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi expanded the Southland into the Little Rock metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. Central Arkansas and A&M-Corpus Christi enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University-San Marcos. All told, the revised membership of the Southland encompasses more than 180,000 current students and an alumni base of approximately 920,000. Famous alums from Southland Conference schools include former President Lyndon B. Johnson (Texas State), former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), retired U.S. Central Command General Tommy Franks (UT Arlington), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeast ern Louisiana), country music star George Strait (Texas State), Major League Baseball stars Hunter Pence (UT Arlington), Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Ben Broussard (McNeese State), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas) and actor Lou Diamond Phillips (UT Arlington). The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio and the New Orleans area, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large num bers of students from the metropolitan areas of Houston, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The Conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball.Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the na tion, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest, the sixth such title game appearance since the league joined FCS in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 89 Division I playoff games in 27 years, winning 42 of the contests.

Lady Demon Basketball History Since the first team took the court in 1908, the women’s basketball program at Northwestern has always scored a lot of points and win a lot of games. From the formative days of the program, the Lady Demons have lit up the scoreboard. That’s never been more true than the last 15 years, with NSU ranking among the national scoring leaders year after year. The Lady Demons have finished as high as fourth in the nation in 1984-85 (88.0 ppg), 1985-86 (87.5) and 1989-90 (86.6). Dating back to the early 1970s, when little attention was given to women’s athletics in college, the Lady Demons were already drawing attention with winning records and postseason success. In fact, while women’s sports were not yet funded by the university budget, the Lady Demons earned a trip to the National Women’s Invitational Tournament in 1973, led by volunteer coach Lou Lewis Baxter, a physical education professor. Recognized officially (and funded) by the university for the 1974-75 season, the Lady Demons hit the court running, posting an 18-9 record under head coach Mary Jane Mayfield. In April, 1975 Northwestern became the first university in Louisiana to issue full athletic scholarships to women, when NSU athletes Pat Nolen, Diane Pittman, Emma Ellerman, Louise “Do” Bonin, Sherrill Landry, Terri McDonnell, Inez Brew, Mona Davidson, Janie Wallace and Margaret Langford were the recipients. Tammy Primeaux and Lisa Brewer were high school seniors who accepted scholarships to play basketball for the Lady Demons. In 1974-75, the Lady Demons advanced to the Louisiana Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women basketball tournament, splitting four games with Southwestern Louisiana before moving onto the AIAW Region IV tournament. The Lady Demons repeated the accomplishment for the next three years under Charlotte Corley, posting a 14-13 record in state tournaments and an 8-8 mark in regional tournaments. While the Lady Demons were a power-

ful force in state women’s basketball under their first three coaches, it was under the leadership of Pat Nolen Pierson that the Lady Demons tasted their first bit of national recognition. After finishing her playing career with the Lady Demons and graduating with honors, she came within one game of claiming a state championship in her only year of high school coaching at her alma mater, Pitkin High School. She took over the Northwestern program following that season, just 23 years old. During her nine years as head coach, the Lady Demons became a force on the national level as women’s basketball moved into the NCAA Division I mainstream around the country after playing in the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women in the 1970s. A formidable partnership was created when Pierson hired James Smith as assistant coach in 1980. He was responsible for installing the Lady Demons’ trademark fast-break offense. The Pierson-Smith tandem won 71 percent of their games (13556) in their seven years together. During those years, Northwestern became a fixture in the national Top 10 scoring rankings. That attack appealed to top athletes like Lonnie Banks, Teressa Thomas, Annie Harris, Linda Grayson and Sandy Pugh, highly-recruited prep stars who became Lady Demon greats. The Lady Demons won three straight Gulf Star Conference championships (1984-86), receiving votes for the AP Top 20 each year. The 1985-86 squad made the biggest breakthrough, setting a single season record for victories and becoming the first Northwestern team to participate in postseason play at the NCAA Division I level. That team, led by Thomas, Banks and Harris, stunned 1985 NCAA Final Four entry Northeast Louisiana (ranked No. 4 in USA Today Top 25) 86-83 on Jan. 30, 1986. Northwestern had a 20-point halftime lead and held off a rally as Harris ripped in 37 points and Thomas pumped in 25 more to go along with eight assists and Banks, at

5-5, snagged 14 rebounds. A pair of late-season road losses at Southeastern Louisiana and Sam Houston probably kept the Lady Demons out of the 32-team NCAA Tournament. However, the NWIT issued an invitation to Northwestern and it was well-received on both ends. By the end of the NWIT in Amarillo, Texas, the Lady Demons had won over the local crowd and nearly won the tournament title. Seeded sixth, Northwestern topped Tennessee Tech, 77-71, and squeaked by Duke, 89-88, on a last second jumper by Harris to reach the championship contest. As a crowd of 2,600 Texans cheered wildly “on another night in Lady Demon Land,” as the local newspaper put it, Northwestern battled to the last minute before falling 100-91 to Idaho. Thomas and Harris were All-Tournament picks. Thomas had a national record 19 assists in an 88-77 win over Mississippi College earlier in her senior year. The Lady Demons won a fourth straight conference title in 1986-87 with a win over Southwest Texas, sharing the title with Stephen F. Austin. Sandy Pugh was named conference MVP, the first time a Lady Demon was named conference MVP. At the end of the 1987 campaign, Pierson made a difficult decision and left Northwestern to rejuvenate the women’s basketball program at East Carolina. It was an easy decision, however, to elevate Smith to the head coaching position. In 17 years, he took the program to even greater heights while surpassing Pierson as the all-time winningest coach in Lady Demon history during the 1995-96 season. Senior Linda Grayson combined with junior college transfer Pam Hudson to lead another landmark year for the Lady Demons in 1988-89. Smith’s second team

Lady Demon Basketball History knocked off No. 11 Stephen F. Austin, 7876, and earned an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament. In 1989-90, the program took another huge step forward when Hudson won the Division I rebounding title (15.2 rpg), finished second in the scoring race (28.4 ppg) and rewrote school and Southland Conference records on the way to becoming the first major college All-American in Northwestern basketball history. She was a second-team pick on the Basketball Writers of America team and a honorable mention Kodak All-American. In 1993, the Lady Demons posted another winning campaign (24-8) with a freshman nucleus led by Joskeen Garner, the Southland Conference Freshman of the Year and a first team All-SLC pick. Northwestern accepted a bid to the NWIT and claimed the consolation championship (third place). The 1993-94 Lady Demons posted their 15th consecutive winning season with a 20-8 record as Garner was the nation’s second leading rebounder (13.8 rpg) and named Louisiana’s Co-Player of the Year with Pam Thomas of Louisiana Tech. Northwestern posted its fourth consecutive 20-win season en route to a recordtying 25-7 record in 1994-95. The Lady Demons captured their first Southland Conference championship, finishing league play with a 16-2 record. Northwestern lost to SFA in the tournament championship game, but accepted a bid to the NWIT for the second time in three years. The seventh-seeded Lady Demons were the surprise team in Amarillo, Texas. Northwestern opened with an 80-64 win over Clemson. They followed with a 10393 win over Notre Dame in a semifinal shootout before losing a hard-fought battle against Texas A&M in the finals, 85-81. Joskeen Garner became the first Lady Demon since Pam Hudson to earn AllAmerican honors, being named to the Associated Press Honorable Mention AllAmerican team. The Lady Demons again posted impressive numbers in 1995-96 while posting their 17th straight winning season, one win shy of a fifth straight 20-win season. Northwestern went through a rebuilding process in 1996-97 but found a star in Judy Clark, named Southland Conference Freshman of the Year. The 1998-99 squad put their stamp on the the Lady Demon record books. The team reeled off 13 straight wins from Dec. 20, 1998 to Feb. 6, 1999, a new Lady Demon record and finished the year with a 22-7 overall record. Clark added another piece of hardware to her trophy case as she was selected Southland Conference Player of the Year. The Southland Conference regular season champions lost to Stephen F. Austin in the tournament finals, but once again were invited to the WNIT, the third time in six years for NSU. In a new format, the Lady Demons lost in the first round on the road against Arkansas. In 1999-00 the Lady Demons (24-6)

notched an .800 winning percentage, the best in school history. The Lady Demons also had the third most wins in school history. The 1999-00 season did end in disappointment, however, as the Lady Demons failed to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament despite a higher RPI ranking than several teams offered bids. The 2000-01 team led by Kia Converse rolled off a school-record 15 straight wins from Jan. 1 to March 8, finishing the season with a mark of 23-7. The Lady Demons advanced to the tournament finals, only to lose to SFA. Converse became the SLC’s alltime best 3-point shooter with 218 career 3s. The 2003-04 team looked loaded in what turned out to be Coach Smith’s final season, and the pieces fell into place. The Lady Demons rolled through the SLC season with a 14-2 mark, including an 11-0 start. The team finished 24-7, tying for the second most wins in a season while winning the SLC regular-season and tournament crowns, advancing to the second NCAA Tournament in school history. Cooda Dobin became NSU’s all-time assist leader with 921 career dishes. She also became the first player in NCAA history, men or women, to lead the nation in assists per game for three straight seasons. She was featured in the NCAA Final Four official program. Dobin has returned to the Lady Demon program as an assistant coach for the 201112 season. On Sept. 1, 2004, the torch was passed. Smith stepped down as head coach and Lady Demon player and assistant coach Jennifer Graf, after being groomed by her mentor for the last two seasons, took over as head coach. Recent recruiting success indicates a return to SLC prominence is imminent for Lady Demon basketball. Four Lady Demons have had their jerseys retired after great careers. Hanging in the rafters of Prather Coliseum, alongside the many championship banners, are Pam Hudson’s No.45, Linda Grayson’s No. 33, Lonnie Banks’ No. 10, and Teressa Thomas’ No. 25. It’s a safe bet, looking at the fast track record of success for Lady Demon hoops, that more banners will be raised soon.
