or almost a century the University of Memphis has been a catalyst for progress in the city of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the surrounding Mid-South region. From its inception as a normal school dedicated to the education of public school teachers, to its role today as an educator of technologically-savvy graduates who face a complex world, the University of Memphis has always fulfilled its current mission while looking forward to and planning for its future. Exceptional students from Tennessee, from every other state in the nation and from almost 100 countries around the world choose to attend the University of Memphis. They come here on the recommendation of their major professors at European universities; they come here to study subjects that are offered nowhere else; they come to study alongside men and women who are recognized and respected throughout the academic and scientific communities as foremost in their fields. Ever forward-looking, the University of Memphis is poised to enter one of its most historic and productive periods. From the faculty and staff we have in place to our alumni and benefactors, our “people assets” have never been more willing, able and generous in their efforts to build an academic environment that makes a life-long impact on the young minds at the U of M.

t the Apr. 7 press conference announcing Josh Pastner as the program’s 17th head coach, he talked about how the Tigers were the city of Memphis’ team. “I want everyone to know this program is not about Josh Pastner, not about me,” said Pastner during the press conference. “This is the university’s program and the city of Memphis’ program. We want to have a basketball program that the city and university will be proud of.” In just under a year in the Bluff City as an assistant, Pastner quickly learned how vital the Tiger basketball program was to the city of Memphis, and in turn, how important the support from the city is to the success of the Tigers. In its truest essence, the city’s love affair with Tiger basketball is a relationship that is the very fabric of the Memphis community. Since he took the reins of the program in April, the Tigers have been “out-and-about” in the Memphis community. Pastner has given numerous talks to various community organizations and youth gatherings around the city. But, the Tigers’ new head coach is not the only person wearing the Blue and Gray making a difference around the city. The Memphis players continue to give back to the community that supports them so much each season. The Tigers recently visited Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center and a local retirement center that brought many smiles to both the young and young-atheart. The players also helped clean a part of the city by repainting walls marred by graffiti. Coach Pastner has said it over and over since his hiring – “This is the city of Memphis’ team.”

n March 2002, vast improvements were beginning to take place in the CAAS. At that time, Dr. Joe Luckey took over the staff after spending the previous 10 years at Austin Peay State University. Dr. Luckey, who was nationally recognized for his outstanding leadership in 1999, came to Memphis with a vision. In just one short year, Dr. Luckey recruited six new staff members, instituted new academic programs, designed and inspired two (which is now four) special sections of ACAD 1100 for student-athletes and transitioned the office from the basement of the Elma Roane Fieldhouse to the newlyrenovated Wilder Tower. Dr. Luckey heads a full-time staff of eight, while also utilizing 20 tutors, two academic interns, graduate assistants and student workers. CAAS has a unique responsibility as an office as it provides academic services to all student-athletes and conducts all necessary paperwork for NCAA academic compliance/ certification. The academic services include orientation programs, tutoring, mentoring, academic counseling, study hall and academic advising. Further detail about the services and programs offered by CAAS are found on the website, http://www.memphis.edu/caas/index. php. Dr. Luckey has continued to challenge the Center’s staff, the coaching staffs and the student-athletes to collaboratively enhance the academic performance of U of M student-athletes. As the following highlights indicate, the group effort has resulted in positive results for the university. During the last seven academic years, 14 teams have posted their highest-ever semester GPAs, a record number of student-athletes made the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll and the Tiger 3.0 Club, the department semester GPA record has been set, and several individual student-athletes have been recognized for prestigious national academic awards, such as the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and Academic All-America. Ultimately, the goal of every student-athlete is to graduate. CAAS has continued to set records here as well as 44 student-athletes graduated in May, 2009, encompassing the largest-ever graduation group for the athletics department. The CAAS received a new home during the summer of 2003 with the completion of the Wilder Tower. The Wilder Tower also houses admissions, the bursar, financial aid, the registrar, student development and academic advising. A total of 8,000 square feet, encompassing the entire sixth and seventh floors of the tower, have been designated for the CAAS. The area supports 23 student computer stations, 17 offices and numerous study tables. Four academic awards are sponsored by the CAAS as a means of honoring the top student-athletes. The Tiger 3.0 Club recognizes student-athletes who earned gradepoint averages of 3.0 during the fall/spring semesters, while the Tiger Academic Thirty is dedicated to the 30 student-athletes with the best grade-point average on each team and then the next best group of student-athletes, totaling 30. The final honor, the TEAM GPA Award, is presented to the male and female team with the best grade point average for the semester. The fourth and newest award, CAAS Academic Achievement Award, is presented to the student-athlete(s) who has overcome personal hardship but has still worked hard in the classroom.

here’s never been a better time to be a Tiger fan. Nine-straight 20-win seasons. Nine-consecutive postseason tournament berths, including a trip to the National Championship and back-toback Elite Eight appearances. A roster that features some of the nation’s best collegiate talent. And to top it off, Memphis fans are able to watch their beloved Tigers in the one of the country’s best arenas, FedExForum. The 2009-10 college basketball season will be the team’s sixth season in FedExForum, the $250 million stateof-the-art arena that has the nation still talking. When fans come to a game at FedExForum, the excitement begins even before they enter the front doors. FedExForum features a 35,000 squarefoot outdoor plaza where all fans enter the building. The plaza serves as Memphis’ front porch, a gathering area for fans of all ages. Once in FedExForum, fans are treated to an experience that is unparalleled in the college basketball game. In the arena, there are five levels with wide concourses, making navigating the building easy. There are over 100 points of sale for concession stands, meaning shorter lines. There are four full-service restaurants, with three offering service to Premium Seat Holders — Opus, a fine dining restaurant overlooking the court; Blue Note Lounge, where fans can get a cocktail and a light meal before or during the game; and the Lexus Lounge. The fourth restaurant, which is open to all fans just off the Grand Lobby, is Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Sports Bar, a fun pregame meeting place with patio seating. All of the food in FedExForum is offered by Levy Restaurants, the leader in sports and entertainment venue dining and fans will experience selection and quality beyond anything they’ve ever had at a sporting event. Memphis favorites such as Neely’s Barbecue and D’Bos chicken wings will be available, and fans will also be able to satisfy their appetites with sushi, paninis, po’ boys and just about anything else they could possibly want. Once in their seats, the first thing fans will notice is the massive video board. Designed by Daktronics, the center-hung scoreboard is the focal point of the system, providing fans with live video, instant replays and information on 10 large digital full-color displays, including four dedicated scoring sections. The scoreboard is one of the biggest in the country, measuring approximately 22 feet high by 38 feet in diameter. The unique design of the main center-hung scoreboard includes two 36-degree full-color rings of LED on the top and bottom of the scoreboard. Four additional video displays, in vertical configuration, flank the main video screens and dedicated scoring sections. To complement the center-hung video

and scoring displays, additional LED displays are prominently featured around the seating bowl. These ProAd® digital displays are used for a variety of purposes, including presenting exciting animations and graphics, statistics, scores and stats from other games, and interactive promotional messages from the team and its sponsors. One 360-degree ring of light encircles the entire seating bowl, mounted on the Terrace Level fascia. A second large display curves 270 degrees around the Club Level fascia. Before, during and after games, Tiger fans can buy the latest merchandise and U of M gear in the team store, located in the Grand Lobby and at several boutique stores throughout FedExForum. The store is also open from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Sunday, or can be reached by phone at 901-205-1551. A unique feature of FedExForum is the music theme that is prevalent throughout. Luxury suite holders will notice their names engraved on a record outside their suite, and lyric sheets from famous Memphis songs appear prominently on the walls. Concessions and restaurants are named with uniquely Memphis music themes and areas of the arena concourses are divided into sponsored zones highlighting musical genres like Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Blues, Gospel, Memphis Music Today and more. FedExForum is also home to the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum on the ground floor of the administration building. The Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum traces the roots of rock and roll and soul music in Memphis, offering visitors a self-guided tour of Memphis music from the early 20th century in the ‘70s. The Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum is one of only two Smithsonian Institution exhibits not located in Washington, D.C. Along with the Grizzlies’ locker room on the Event Level, the Tigers also have a state-of-the-art locker room facility just off the playing floor. The area has players and coaches locker rooms, a training room, video room and players lounge. The locker room is one of the best facilities in the nation. FedExForum is setting a new standard for college arenas, and it’s all happening in Memphis. There has truly never been a better time to be a Tigers fan.

way from c o l l e g e basketball’s top arena, FedExForum, the Tigers have a world-class practice facility in the Larry O. Finch Recreational Facility located on the University of Memphis campus. The 31,000-square-foot center cost $3.2 million. It features a regulation court which runs east to west. With the removal of portable goals, the building can be divided into two north-south courts for intramural play. Besides the courts, the building features every amenity the Tigers could desire. The center’s weight room was equipped with $50,000 of state-of-theart weight and cardiovascular equipment through a generous donation from Memphis businessmen Richard Mercer, Harry Phillips and George Sneed. With the renovations done in the summer of 2004, the weight room was moved courtside where players can work out just off the practice courts. The players lounge now occupies what was once the weight room, giving the Tiger players and coaches a spacious area to hold team functions. The lounge area features a big screen television and a pool table, along with several couches and recliners on which players and coaches can “lounge.” Built into the main entrance to the lounge area are open lockers featuring uniforms and mementoes from former Tigers in the NBA. The locker room has individual wood lockers along three walls. Adjacent to the locker room is a video room where players and coaches can watch game tape in preparation for upcoming games. Additional training equipment has been added to the weight room on a yearly basis. The center’s fully-equipped training room includes heat packs, electrical stimulation units, ultrasound, whirlpools, three treatment and two taping tables as well as a separate doctor’s examination room. Also, the classroom which overlooks the court has been transformed into a dining area for post-practice meals for the team. A brick archway entrance was added to the front of the facility in the summer of 2008. It is the first step in establishing the Memphis Basketball Walk of Fame. The ongoing project is turning the Finch Center’s entrance area into a Memphis basketball museum, which will chronicle the Tigers’ glorious basketball history. The Larry O’ Finch Center was dedicated Feb. 24, 2000. In Finch’s three years as a player at Memphis, the Tigers recorded a 63-21 record and either won or tied for two Missouri Valley Conference championships. He scored 1,869 career points and averaged 26.8 points in the 1973 NCAA Tournament when the Tigers advanced to the championship game. Finch was named All-America honorable mention by both the Associated Press and UPI and was the 1972 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year. As a coach, Finch is the all-time winningest coach in Tiger history, posting a 220-130 record in 11 seasons. Under his leadership the U of M advanced to the NCAA Tournament six times, including the Elite Eight in 1992 and the Sweet 16 in 1995.

he University of Memphis athletic training staff is second-to-none when it comes to ensuring that U of M student-athletes receive quality care in the areas of athletic injury, rehabilitation and preventative care. With fully-staffed athletic training rooms located at the Murphy Athletic Complex, the Larry O. Finch Center and the Elma Roane Fieldhouse, Memphis student-athletes can be assured of receiving the best medical attention and rehabilitation available. The Murphy Athletic Complex training room was redesigned and reconstructed as part of the $6 million renovation of the Park Avenue Campus in 2003. The athletic training facility contains an inground aquatic rehabilitation pool, allowing athletic trainers to work on rehabilitating injuries without having the student-athlete support his/ her own body weight. The athletic training room also contains doctor examination rooms, storage areas and the latest in rehabilitation equipment. The athletic training staff uses a comprehensive approach to the injury care and wellness of student-athletes by utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment with the latest methods in the care and prevention of injuries.

n 2000, the Larry O. Finch Basketball Training Facility opened for Tiger basketball, and with it, gave the University of Memphis basketball program one of the top practice facilities in the nation. Along with practices courts and other student-athlete amenities, the Tiger basketball players have a state-of-the-art weight room in which to work. Richard Hogans, a former Memphis football standout who also played in the NFL, is the Director of Performance Enhancement and works directly with the men’s basketball team. Hogans has worked with a number of All-Pro athletes such as the San Francisco 49ers’ Isaac Bruce, the NBA’s Penny Hardaway and heavyweight boxing champion Michael Moorer. The weight room is located beside the practice courts, allowing players to move easily from one area to another during practice or strength and conditioning exercises. Since he was hired in the summer of 2004, Hogans has continually kept the Tiger basketball weight room updated with cutting-edge equipment.

WEIGHT ROOM HIGHLIGHTS • Hogans and the Tiger program has adopted a motto as “B.I.A. — Best in America,” showing what student-athletes should always strive for. Under this B.I.A. motto, the players are taking on a W.I.T. — Whatever It Takes — mentality. • Speed-Strength Philosophy: As performance enhancement specialists, the goal is not to make the student-athletes into professional weightlifters, but ensure they are physically prepared for the high demands of competitive athletics. In order to give the players an edge, a program has been developed that integrates the four key aspects needed to increase speed and quickness, explosiveness, power, muscular endurance and aerobic capacity. The four key aspects are strength training, speed training, agility training and plyometic training. • The Tiger basketball players go through three different phases of training throughout the year. The phases are preparatory, competitive in-season and transitional. The foundation for the student-athletes is set in the transitional phase which starts in the spring and continues up to the preparatory phase. The transitional and preparatory phases are vital for the players’ development because strength, speed and lean mass gains are necessities during this time period. During the latter part of the preparatory phase, the student-athletes are transitioned into specific training methodologies, where all the training is put together and tied into the specific sport. • The workouts during the early phases constantly change week-to-week, with the exception of the core exercises. This type of protocol creates an environment where change in muscle tone and growth is inevitable due primarily to the fact that the student-athletes’ are not used to the workouts. This, in turn, creates muscle breakdown that results in muscle growth with adequate recovery and supplementation. Also the constant change in the routine keeps the workouts from becoming stale and boring.

hen the University of Memphis first fielded a football team in the fall of 1912, no one had selected a nickname for the squad. Early references to the football team tabbed them only as the Blue and Gray Warriors of West Tennessee Normal School. After the final game of the 1914 season, there was a student parade. During this event, several Normal students shouted, “We fight like Tigers.” The nickname was born. More and more the nickname “Tigers” was used, particularly in campus publications. But it did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use “Normals” or the “Blue and Gray” when referring to the University. In the late 1920s, student publications and downtown newspapers began referring to the football team as the “Teachers” or “Tutors.” The Tiger nickname would return, but not until 1939 was it finally adopted as the official nickname for the University of Memphis. The first Tiger, TOM, was procured by the Highland Hundred Football Boosters in 1972 and served the U of M faithfully for nearly 20 years until passing away in February of 1992. The Highland Hundred officially presented TOM to the University in a ceremony at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on November 11, 1972, during a football game against the University of Cincinnati. TOM had initially been named ‘Shane’ at the suggestion of the breeder’s daughter. Once in Memphis, though, a contest was held to name the mascot. More than 2,500 entries were submitted. The list was ultimately reduced to two choices, Shane, and TOM, which stands for Tigers Of Memphis. TOM won. In the fall of 1991, the Highland Hundred Tiger Guard received TOM II as a gift from Tom and Carolyn Atchison of Florence, Alabama. TOM II would serve with pride for 17 years through 2008, passing away on October 15th of that year. Shortly after TOM II’s death, the Tiger Guard began the search for a new tiger to serve as TOM III, and a stroke of good luck was realized in a discussion with the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue & Educational Center in Rock Springs, Wis. Faced with three new cubs born August 31, 2008, after an unexpected pregnancy at their facility, founders Jeff Kozlowski and Jenny Meyer offered to donate one of their young tigers to serve as TOM III. TOM III was introduced at a press conference on November 17, 2008, and the Tiger Guard officially presented him to the University on November 22 during a football game against the UCF.

onsidered the “Home of the Blues” and the “Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll,” the city of Memphis’ musical roots run deep. However, music is just a chapter in the history as well as the future of the city located in the heart of MidAmerica. Memphis, named after the capital of ancient Egypt, boasts all the amenities you would expect in a city with over 1 million residents, while retaining the charm and down-to-earth feel of a small town. Downtown Memphis recently realized a building boom valued at $2.3 billion which transformed the heart of the city. One of the most visible projects was the construction of AutoZone Park, the downtown ballpark which is the home of the Memphis Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Triple-A club. The 14,320seat stadium includes 1,500 club seats, 48 luxury suites and is located at the corner of Third Street and Union Avenue across from the world-famous Peabody Hotel. The city’s newest downtown project is FedExForum, an entertainment arena that houses both the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association and the University of Memphis men’s basketball team. The $250 million state-of-the-art arena features a 35,000-square-foot outdoor plaza where fans of all ages can gather before an event. The arena has over 100 points of sale for concession stands and four full-service restaurants. FedExForum is located one block south of Beale Street. Beale Street has rapidly become the entertainment center of Memphis and visitors and locals alike enjoy the food and music offered in the various nightclubs. Where Beale Street meets the Mississippi River is Tom Lee Park, site of the annual Beale Street Music Festival. The weekend-long event is just a part of the month-long Memphis in May International Festival which also includes the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Sunset Symphony. Also located within a block of Beale is Gibson Guitar Memphis, which includes factory tours and cultural exhibits. Across the street is the Smithsonian’s Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum located at the FedExForum, which includes artifacts documenting music’s past. Memphis’ musical roots also include Stax and Hi-Records as well as Sun Records recording studio. Stax became known for “sweet soul music” through such artists as the MarKeys, Booker T. and the MGs, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave and Isaac Hayes. One of Hi-Records’ premier artists was Al Green. Sun Records’ most famous recording artist was Elvis Presley and also boasted Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash among its recording artists. Elvis Presley’s Graceland is one of the five most visited home tours in America and is the most famous home in the United States after the White House. In 1991, Graceland was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. Over 600,000 visitors tour Graceland each year. The city’s location makes Memphis a major distribution hub with two interstate highways intersecting the city. Memphis is also home of FedEx, the nation’s largest package carrier which makes Memphis International Airport the world’s busiest cargo airport. Over 500 commercial passenger flights originate from Memphis International each day.

R.

C. Johnson came aboard in February of 1996 and immediately set forth in bringing U of M Tiger athletics into national prominence. Over the last 13 years, the dynamic administrator has built Tiger Athletics into a nationally-recognized program that has been to five bowl games in the last six years and played for the Men’s Basketball National Championship title in 2007-08. In addition, for the last 11 straight years, donations to the department have continued to rise, and on June 30, 2009, a record-setting $7 million was announced by the Tiger Scholarship Fund. Also in the last six years under Johnson, the Tigers have captured 13 total C-USA championships in men’s basketball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s golf and men’s track. The men’s basketball program has garnered five regular-season titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) and four C-USA Tournament championships (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), while the women’s soccer program claimed back-to-back league championships in 2007 and 2008. Johnson is currently spearheading his second major capital campaign which benefits nearly every area of the Tiger Athletic Department. Included in the $12.9 million project is a new addition to the Athletic Office Building, a weight room and turf practice field for Tiger Football, a redesign of the Tiger baseball stadium that is currently underway, the completed golf practice facility, a renovation of the Finch Center men’s basketball practice facility and the Anfernee Hardaway Hall of Fame to honor Tiger athletes. Johnson’s first capital campaign was previously the largest fund-raising effort in the history of Memphis athletics. The $8 million campaign included a new 8,000-square-foot football and basketball office complex addition, a new basketball practice facility, which is still considered one of the best in the country, and a complete renovation of the Murphy Athletic Complex. During his tenure, Johnson has created the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, the Tiger Scholarship Fund Board of Directors and the Athletic Director’s Ambassador’s Club. The Ambassador’s Club, which started with two members in 1997, has reached an all-time high of 37 members under Johnson. A significant revenue source for Tiger Athletics, members of the Ambassador’s Club pledge to commit $500,000. In June 2007, Johnson inked a lucrative longterm contract extension with Learfield Sports, which enabled Tiger Sports Properties to retain the multimedia rights for Memphis Athletics through 2017. The Tigers signed on with Learfield Sports in 2001, granting the partner radio and television rights, athletic venue signage, game day promotions and sponsorships, as well as the official athletic department website. Terms for the contract call for the Tigers to receive a financial guarantee each year of the agreement and to participate in annual revenue sharing. Last fall, the U of M entered into a five-year, $11.3 million partnership with Nike to provide shoes, apparel and equipment for all Tiger athletic teams. A believer in academic excellence as well as athletic success and national prominence, Johnson leads a department that set a school record with 50 percent of its student-athletes achieving a 3.0 or higher during the fall 2007 semester. For the most recent academic year, which includes fall 2008 and spring 2009, 335 student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA and 12 had a 4.0 for the year and 20 others had a 4.0 either in the fall or spring. Nine teams logged a semester average of 3.0 or higher for the 2007 fall semester, and for the last four straight semesters, the athletic department as a whole has maintained a 2.8 GPA . In May 2008, 44 athletes earned their degrees, marking the largest group for one ceremony since 2002 when the athletic academic services department began keeping record. Johnson came to Memphis after serving as athletic director at Temple from 1994-1995. A long-time administrator, Johnson also served as an athletic director at Miami University (19881994) and Eastern Illinois (1980-88), and was the associate athletic director at Northern Iowa from 1974-80. An native of Ottawa, Ill., Johnson holds his bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Iowa in 1965 and earned his master’s degree in physical education from the University of Northern Iowa in 1967. Johnson and his wife, Melba, have three children: Jeff, P.A. and Michelle; five grandchildren and one great grandson.

When University of Memphis Director of Athletics R.C. Johnson began the search for a new coach for the Tiger basketball program last March, he stated he wanted a “wow” hire. Boy, Johnson got that “wow” hire. Because ever since Apr. 7 when Johnson handed the reins of the program to then 31-year-old Josh Pastner, all any Tiger fan is able to say is, “Wow!” Granted, Pastner is not naïve. He realizes that many of the good vibes and well wishes from Tiger Nation are because, in his own words, he’s undefeated entering the 2009-10 campaign. But, from the Memphis fans’ perspective, they know the circumstances the program faces and understand that there may be some drop-off from the greatest four-year run in NCAA Division I basketball history from 2005-09. Tiger Nation is soaking up the positive attitude that Pastner breathed – and is still breathing – into the program. And, the program needed that proverbial “breath of fresh air” after undergoing an off-season with so many twists and turns that Pastner, in response to if he was ready for the season to begin, jokingly quipped, “What? The season hasn’t started yet?” That was the feeling most of Tiger Nation had with the whirlwind the basketball program went through since the end of the 2008-09 campaign. To quickly recap: Memphis had a coaching change, hired an entirely new staff, lost two underclassmen to the NBA Draft, had three of four recruits decide to attend other schools, responded to an NCAA letter, signed two players, accepted a transfer, played the waiting game to see if the transfer could participate this season, had one late signee decide to play professional ball overseas, had the other recruit suffer a knee injury and is out for the season, got clearance from the NCAA for the transfer to play immediately, and signed its final recruit just a week before school started. But, through the ups and downs, Pastner remains positive and wants Tiger fans to do the same throughout the 2009-10 campaign. Pastner oozes enthusiasm and excitement for the upcoming season, but also knows it may be one of the most challenging years in the program’s history. “Let’s just start with the fact that the last four years was not reality, or what the norm is,” said Pastner. “No other program in the history of college basketball has done what was accomplished here the past four years. Because of that incredible success, we have a huge bull’s-eye on our back this season. Our players know this and are ready to face what’s in front of them. “Although our numbers are low, I’ve told PAG E

Josh Pastner enters his first season as a collegiate head coach in 2009-10. The 32-year-old Pastner, widely regarded as one of the top recruiters in the country, is looking at the upcoming season as full of positives for the Tiger program despite having only eight scholarship players at his disposal.

Roburt Sallie wowed the nation with his 35-point, 10-threepointers made performance in the NCAA Tournament first round last season. That and more is expected from the 6-foot5 guard and his backcourt mates, as the Tigers’ strength will be on the perimeter in 2009-10.

the team to have fun this season and enjoy it. We’re going to work as hard as possible to make the university and city proud of their team.” When Pastner stated that the numbers are scarce, he’s referring to scholarship players, and he had nine when school began. However, two weeks into individual workouts, the number dropped to eight when sophomore forward Angel Garcia suffered an ACL injury to his right knee and is out for the season. Pastner, though, continues to accentuate the positives, and three are found in the returning senior trio of Pierre Henderson-Niles, Willie Kemp and Doneal Mack. The three seniors bring a winning attitude to the squad, as they have been a part of 104 victories the past three seasons. The 104 wins ties the NCAA Division I mark for most victories in a three-year span in college basketball history. The seniors have also played integral roles in Memphis winning three-straight Conference USA regular season and tournament titles. In fact, Henderson-Niles, Kemp and Mack have never suffered a Conference USA setback (57-0 record) and look to extend the Tigers’ 61-game league overall win streak in 2009-10. Memphis also has a 49-game conference regular season win streak. Both streaks are the second-longest in NCAA Division I basketball history.

One only has to look at the Tigers’ roster to know where the strength of the team lies — on the perimeter. And, Pastner, looks to center the squad’s play around its perimeter players. “I don’t want to live or die by the three,” said Pastner. “But, the perimeter is where the strength of this year’s team is, so you’re going to see us shoot a lot from the three-point line. We have a lot of quickness and athleticism in the backcourt and on the wings, and we’re looking to take advantage of that.” The threesome of Kemp, Mack and Roburt Sallie return as the cornerstone of the Tigers’ perimeter game, and all three can light it up from the “three.” Mack tops the trio in number of treys made, hitting 176 times from long distance in his career. The 176 treys are third-most in school history, and on his pace of 59 threepointers per season, the Charlotte, N.C., native looks to become only the third player to hit the 200-trey milestone in the program’s history. Kemp finds his name just outside the top-10 on the career three-pointers made list with 123 treys, but needs only 14 to move onto the list. Over the summer, the Bolivar, Tenn., native set the tone as one of the team’s leaders during the strength training and conditioning sessions. The

After seeing time at point guard and shooting guard in 200809, Wesley Witherspoon is learning another position — the 4-spot — for the upcoming season. With the Tigers’ thin numbers in the frontcourt, Witherspoon, who is one of the country’s most versatile players, will see a lot of time near the basket.

Many college basketball fans may not recognize senior Pierre Henderson-Niles when he takes the floor in 2009-10. Henderson-Niles, seen in the photo above from last season, has dropped from around 300 pounds to under 270 to start the 2009-10 campaign.

6-foot-2 senior expects to see time at both the point and shooting guard positions. The player that most of Tiger Nation is waiting to see is Sallie. The last time everyone saw the Sacramento, Calif., native, he was torching the nets in the NCAA Tournament to the tune of 66.7 percent shooting from the arc (16-of-24) in three games. Sallie hit a school-record 10 treys in the NCAA Tournament first round win over Cal State Northridge. Pastner is expecting that and more from the 6-foot-5 guard. Plans are for Sallie to take on a larger role in 2009-10, and that move also requires a change in his mindset from limited role player to starter or sixth man. Joining that trio is Duke University transfer Elliot Williams, who returns home to Memphis after playing the 2008-09 season for the Blue Devils. A lefty, athletic wing, the 6-foot-5 sophomore hit his stride late last year, starting 11 of Duke’s final 12 games. He made 12 total starts, and when he did he doubled his offensive output. Williams averaged 6.7 points and 3.8 boards in the 12 starts, but posted 2.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in games when he came off the bench. While Williams may play a lot of his time at off-guard, Pastner also expects to use him at the point. Another surprise addition to the perimeter

is freshman Drew Barham. The 6-foot-7 wing originally signed with Southern Illinois, but with the changes that occurred with the Tigers’ roster over the summer, Barham decided he wanted to remain in the Bluff City and play for his hometown team. The Salukis released Barham from his national letter of intent, and he is eligible for the 2009-10 campaign as a walk-on. Barham is another perimeter weapon for the Tigers, as he has excellent range and outstanding accuracy. Other players vying for time on the perimeter are junior James Harvey Jr., sophomore Preston Laird and freshmen Tyler Foster, Charles Holt and Malik Thomas.

IN THE LANE When Garcia went down with his ACL injury in early September individual workouts, it made an already thin frontcourt even thinner. Before the injury, the Tiger coaching staff was working with Garcia — a skilled player with three-point range — on his post moves and teaching him to play with his back to the basket. The plan was to make Garcia a match-up problem for opponents in the post and on the perimeter. With Garcia out for 2009-10, Pastner and his staff have to be innovative despite low num-

bers up front. Henderson-Niles and junior college transfer Will Coleman will be counted on to man the post for Memphis, while sophomore swingman Wesley Witherspoon and freshman D.J. Stephens will see most of the time at the power forward spot. “I’ve told the staff we’re going to have to be creative with the way we play because of our lack of numbers at certain positions, especially on the frontline,” said Pastner. “We can’t feel sorry for ourselves because no one else is going to do so. We have to be positive and coach them up the best we can.” All eyes will be on Henderson-Niles, who has slimmed down to under 270 pounds and is expected to take on a new role after seeing limited playing time in his first three seasons. Pastner is counting on the Memphis, Tenn., native to contribute in many ways in 2009-10. After two stellar seasons at Miami Dade College, Coleman moves his game to Memphis. The Columbus, Ga., native only started playing basketball as a junior in high school, but his freakish athleticism – including a 43-inch vertical – gives the Tiger coaching staff something with which to work. The 6-foot-9 junior nearly averaged double figures in rebounding and over four blocks per contest at Miami Dade, and if Coleman can produce similar numbers in 200910, then the Tigers could have a successful season. Witherspoon, one of the most versatile players in the nation, will pick up most of the playing time at the 4-spot. The 6-foot-9 wing missed a portion of the 2008-09 season after surgery to repair a torn meniscus in late January, but worked hard in the weight room in the off-season to get prepared for his role this year. Stephens is a smallish power forward at 6-foot5, but his length and incredible hops – also a 43-inch vertical – help him match up with bigger frontline players. Aaron Jacques, a walk-on addition just prior to preseason drills, is a “mix-it-up” type of player the Tigers need to push the other frontcourt players in practice. The 6-foot-6 Jacques played one season of college basketball at Bethel College, an NAIA school, in 2005-06.

THE WRAP-UP For a first-year head coach, a lot of things have been thrown at Pastner in only six months on the job. However, through it all, Pastner remains upbeat about what 2009-10 holds for the Tigers. He has said repeatedly that it won’t be the smoothest of rides, but with Tiger Nation and the city of Memphis behind “their” team, the program will remain on track to stay among college basketball’s elite.

Quick, name the person who appears on the NCAA Division I men’s basketball youngest head coaches list and yet has already coached 12 NBA lottery picks? If you’re stumped, don’t feel bad. There are many college hoops experts that may not even know. The answer to the question is University of Memphis first-year head coach Josh Pastner, who took over the reins of the Tiger basketball program at 31 years of age on Apr. 7, 2009. Although he is the third-youngest head coach in NCAA Division I, Pastner has a resume that many would like to have. Speaking of those Pastner’s NBA lottery picks, the names make up a list of who’s who in “The League.” The players are Jason Terry, Channing Frye, Jarryd Bayless, Andre Iguodala, Richard Jefferson, Michael Dickerson and Mike Bibby from his time at Arizona. Then, add to that, Emeka Okafor, T.J. Ford and Daniel Gibson when Pastner coached the Houston Hoops summer squad, and that’s rather impressive. But, there’s more. In late June, Pastner added two more players to his NBA Draft lottery list when Arizona’s Jordan Hill and Memphis’ Tyreke Evans were two of the 2009 NBA Draft’s top 13 selections. Pastner’s impressive resume, though, doesn’t end there. He’s won an NCAA title as a player at Arizona (1997), and also made a trip to the NCAA championship game while on the Wildcats’ staff (2001). As an assistant coach since 2003 (six years at Arizona, one year at Memphis), Pastner’s teams advanced to four NCAA Sweet Sixteens and two Elite Eights. In fact, Pastner has participated in the NCAA Tournament all 13 years he has been involved in college basketball as a player, staff member or assistant coach. And now, he brings that exceptional background to the role as the 17th head coach in Memphis basketball history. Pastner came to Memphis as an assistant coach in May of 2008, and in only his first season as an assistant on the staff in 2008-09, he helped the Tigers continue their rarefied success. Last year, Memphis continued its magical ride with a 33-4 overall record and another perfect 16-0 mark in the Conference USA regular season — the program’s third-straight year of perfection in league play. The Tigers entered the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen on a school-record 27-game win streak, also the longest in the nation. This past year’s Sweet Six-

teen appearance was the program’s fourth straight, tying a school mark. Memphis made it another sweep of the C-USA crowns, winning the league’s tournament for a fourthconsecutive season. The Tigers also jumped into the top five of both national polls, reaching as high as the No. 2 spot. Memphis finished the regular season ranked No. 3 in the final Associated Press poll and No. 2 in the ESPN/USA Today poll. In the final coaches poll after the NCAA Tournament, the Tigers were ranked No. 9. Pastner came to Memphis after a successful six-year stint as an assistant coach on Hall of Famer Lute Olson’s staff at the University of Arizona. From 2003-08, Arizona averaged nearly 23 wins per season (137-60 record; .695 winning percentage), captured two Pac-10 regular season championships (2003, 2005) and advanced to two NCAA Tournament regional finals (2003, 2005). The Wildcats earned NCAA Tournament berths in each of Pastner’s six seasons as an assistant coach. Pastner, who was with the Arizona program as a player, administrator and coach since 1996, was a key cog in the Wildcats’ recruiting efforts and working with the program’s big men. In his six seasons as an assistant in Tucson, Pastner’s tireless efforts on the recruiting trail paid big dividends, as the Wildcats continued to successfully recruit top-notch student-athletes. Arizona’s recruiting classes were among the best nationally in each of his six seasons as an assistant. In June of 2005, then-Rivals.com’s writer and current Memphis Grizzlies’ general manager Chris Wallace named Pastner one of college basketball’s top 25 recruiters, writing, “Any list of top recruiters must include Pastner.” In May 2008, FoxSports.com rated Pastner as the No. 7 high-major recruiter in the country. And just recently, Basketball Times named Pastner the

Continued from page 45 No. 5 assistant coach in the country in the publication’s April 2009 issue. During his time at Arizona, Pastner was also involved in a wealth of charitable organizations, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson, Boy Scouts of America, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Naval Special Warfare Foundation, Special Olympics and various local law enforcement support groups to name a few. His charitable efforts got him named to the Tucson Business Edge’s “40 Under 40” list for 2007. The honor recognizes local business leaders under 40 years of age. The annual list not only recognizes recipients for professional success, but community involvement, public service and participation in trade groups or professional organizations. Pastner played in 42 games as a Wildcat and finished his career with an average of 0.9 ppg. The Wildcats were 42-0 in the games in which he appeared. Despite his lack of playing time, Pastner’s presence in the Arizona program was invaluable, performing many of the small “behind-the-scenes”

things that helped the team win the 1997 NCAA championship and two Pac-10 titles (1998, 2000) during his career. Pastner helped break down game tapes and scout opponents, and he was the shot specialist for many of the Wildcat players. In his 12 overall years with the program, Arizona had a 290-103 record (.738 winning percentage). Pastner earned his bachelor’s degree in Family Studies from Arizona in December 1998, two-anda-half years after enrolling, the fastest an Arizona student-athlete has ever earned a degree. He finished his master’s in Teaching and Teacher Education in December 1999 before beginning work on his doctorate. In his role as an undergraduate assistant in 2000-01, Pastner began pursuit of another undergraduate degree. Despite taking as many as 33 units a semester while at Arizona, Pastner maintained a high gradepoint average, was nominated for the CoSIDA/ GTE Academic All-America team and was named to the Academic All-Pac-10 second team as a senior in 2000. On May, 16, 2009, Pastner married the former Kerri Lamas, and the couple resides in Memphis.

Head coach Josh Pastner has said repeatedly that Memphis is one of the elite basketball programs in the nation. He also knows that, to remain among the country’s top programs, Memphis has to continue to recruit elite student-athletes. A coach that has an eye for sighting top talent is Glynn Cyprien, who joined Pastner’s staff this past summer. One of the nation’s top recruiters, Cyprien’s efforts have paid off at each of his previous stops, as his recruiting classes have translated into winning seasons and postseason appearances. Since the 1994-95 season at Western Kentucky, Cyprien has been a part of teams with winning records in 13 campaigns, and of those 13 teams, 12 made it to postseason play (9 NCAA, 3 NIT). In his entire 21-year collegiate coaching career, Cyprien has worked with 13 20-win teams and has been a postseason participant 13 times.

Cyprien’s two most recent stops came at Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools in Kentucky and Arkansas. From 2007-09, the New Orleans, La., native helped the Wildcats to a combined 40-27 record and back-to-back postseason appearances (2008 NCAA, 2009 NIT). In his one year at Arkansas, Cyprien helped the Razorbacks to a 21-14 record and an NCAA Tournament appearance. Before his one year at New Mexico State in 2005-06, Cyprien had an outstanding run as an assistant on Eddie Sutton’s staff at Oklahoma State from 200004. In his four years in Stillwater, the Cowboys had a combined 97-32 record and earned four-straight NCAA Tournament berths. Cyprien’s final year at Oklahoma State was one of the best in the school’s history. The Cowboys went 31-4 and advanced to the NCAA Final Four. Ironically, that Oklahoma State team defeated Memphis in the second round en route to the Final Four. While at UNLV from 1995-2000, it was Cyprien’s recruiting efforts that got the Runnin’ Rebels back on the national stage. His 1997 recruiting class was rated the best in the nation by The Sporting News and Basketball Times, and the 1999 class was No. 2 in the country according to Hoop Scoop. Those classes translated into four-straight winning seasons and four-consecutive postseason bids (2 NCAA, 2 NIT) from 1997-2000. Before his move to Las Vegas, Cyprien spent a season at Western Kentucky in 1994-95. The Hilltoppers had a tremendous campaign, compiling a 27-4 record, sweeping the Sun Belt Conference regular season and tournament titles and advancing to the NCAA Tournament second round. Western Kentucky was ranked No. 21 in the final national polls, and the Hilltoppers’ recruiting class that season was rated 10th-best in the country. Cyprien began his coaching career with stops at Texas-San Antonio (198790), Lamar University (1990-91) and Jacksonville (1991-94). While at TexasSan Antonio, he helped the Roadrunners earn the school’s first NCAA Tournament berth in 1988, his first year with the program.

When Josh Pastner contacted Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl about talking with Jack Murphy for a position on the Memphis staff, the longtime NBA mentor jokingly remarked that Pastner would have to fight him for Murphy’s services. Karl was not attempting to be the proverbial “bully on the block.” The Nuggets’ head coach was complimenting Murphy and the job he did for the organization, and wanted to do everything in his power to keep him in Denver. However, in the end, Pastner was able to wrestle Murphy away to join his staff in the Bluff City. The reason Karl was so adamant about keeping Murphy in the Mile High City was his intense workouts he held with NBA All-Stars Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony, along with rising NBA star J.R. Smith. It wasn’t only Karl that swore by Murphy’s workouts, the players themselves became believers as they saw their games improve throughout each season. And, the players’ improvements translated to winning seasons and playoff appearances for the Nuggets. In Murphy’s three seasons with Denver, the Nuggets averaged nearly 50 wins a season and earned three-straight playoff berths. Murphy’s final year with Denver was an historic one. The Nuggets won

a franchise-record 54 games (54-28 record), claimed a share of the NBA Northwest Division title and earned the Western Conference No. 2 seed in the playoffs. Denver advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 1985. Billups and Anthony were named to the All-NBA third team, while Billups played in the NBA All-Star Game. In 2007-08, Murphy helped the Nuggets to a 50-32 overall record and a second-place finish in the Northwest Division. Denver was the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and lost in the first round. The previous year (2006-07), Denver finished the year with a 45-37 record and placed second in the Northwest Division. The Nuggets were the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and lost in the first round to the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs. Prior to his time in the NBA, Murphy worked with Pastner on Hall of Famer Lute Olson’s staff at Arizona. Murphy spent eight years (1998-2006) in Tucson as a team manager, recruiting coordinator, administrative assistant and video coordinator. During his time at Arizona, the Wildcats made eight-straight NCAA Tournament appearances, reaching the national title contest in 2001. Arizona also posted 20 or more wins in each of Murphy’s eight years with the program.

Character is a quality that is high on head coach Josh Pastner’s list. He speaks of it often, and wants it to be an attribute of the Memphis basketball program. Pastner set that tone for the Tigers when he hired Willis Wilson as an assistant coach. Wilson, who had served as head coach at Rice from 1992-2008, is one of the most highly-respected coaches in the country. His reputation in the collegiate coaching circles — and for that matter, across college basketball — is impeccable. In addition, Wilson put together several winning seasons in his career. Wilson is the winningest coach in Rice basketball history and had the most winning campaigns in school history. His 2003-04 squad recorded a 22-11 overall record, and the 22 victories were the second-most for a single season since World War II. Willis guided the Owls to 60 wins in a threeyear span from 2002-05, marking the second-most victories in a three-year stretch in school history. The Silver Spring, Md., native also led the Owl program to the most postseason appearances since 1950. Wilson guided the Owls to three National Invitation Tournaments (NIT) in 1993, 2004 and 2005. Rice’s first round win at Wisconsin in the 1993 NIT was the program’s first postseason victory since the 1954 NCAA Tournament. Wilson was also an assistant on the Rice coaching staff when the Owls earned an NIT berth in 1991. In his tenure at Rice, Wilson coached 17 all-conference performers, including 2007 Conference USA Player of the Year Morris Almond. Almond, a 2007 NBA Draft first round pick, and Michael Harris (2005) both earned All-America accolades.Wilson also had four players pick up CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, including Adam Peakes who was

a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-America selection. Prior to taking over the reins of the Rice program, Wilson spent the 1991-92 campaign as an assistant on Mike Montgomery’s staff at Stanford. The Cardinal finished the season with an 18-11 overall record and a 10-8 Pac-10 mark for fourth place in the league. Stanford earned an NCAA Tournament bid and lost in the first round to Alabama. Willis coached All-America Adam Keefe, who finished his collegiate career as one of four players in NCAA history to have 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds while shooting 60 percent from the floor in a career. Wilson began his collegiate coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater in 1985-86. After a one-year stint as a head coach at the prep level, Wilson returned to Rice as an assistant from 1987-91.

After his hiring, Josh Pastner made it known that he was planning to take his time in assembling his staff. The new Memphis head coach wasn’t looking for quick fixes, but wanted to make right decisions. For the Director of Operations position, Pastner had a different vision. Instead of a “coach-in-waiting” in that role, Pastner wanted a person that could deal with all of the program’s external and internal operations so that the coaches could focus on academics, developing players, recruiting, scouting opponents and running practices. Pastner found the person that fit his vision in Eric Sebastian. Sebastian comes to the Bluff City after working in the Denver Nuggets media relations department since 1994, including the last six seasons (200309) as the department’s director. In his tenure as the media relations director in Denver, he worked with Nuggets head coach George Karl and NBA AllStars Chauncey Billups, Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson. Sebastian directed several successful campaigns for players receiving NBA All-Star and All-NBA honors, including Marcus Camby who earned

the 2006-07 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. He also worked on statistical projects for the Nuggets coaches and management and assisted in the process of free agent recruiting. Sebastian was also a part of the Nuggets’ resurgence since 2003-04. Denver won 40 or more games each of those six seasons, and over that span of time averaged nearly 48 wins per campaign. The Nuggets also made playoff appearances each of the last six years. Sebastian’s final year with Denver was an historic one. The Nuggets won a franchise-record 54 games (54-28 record), claimed a share of the NBA Northwest Division title and earned the Western Conference No. 2 seed in the playoffs. Denver advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 1985. Billups and Anthony were named to the All-NBA third team, while Billups played in the NBA All-Star Game. Prior to joining the NBA, Sebastian served as an intern in the Dallas Cowboys media relations office and men’s World Cup organization in 1994.

The proverbial saying is “the proof is in the pudding.” Well, it’s very evident the outstanding job Richard Hogans is performing in the area of strength and conditioning within the Tiger basketball program. Three years ago, it was a national writer that commented that Antonio Anderson was a “beast” — and that was a compliment. Prior to the 2007-08 campaign, it was Willie Kemp who caught the eyes of many with his redefined physique. This season may provide the best piece of evidence on how well Hogans’ program works when Tiger Nation — along with the rest of the country — sees senior Pierre Henderson-Niles. The senior was 349 pounds during the summer of 2008 and was still around 300 pounds after the 2008-09 campaign. Since then, Henderson-Niles dropped 30 pounds to around 270, and he is still losing pounds and looks to be on pace to reach his goal of 260 by the start of the 2009-10 season. It’s transformation stories like those that has helped attract nationally-recognized recruits like Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans. Hogans’ strength and conditioning program has also aided in the Tigers’ deep postseason runs each March of his five-year tenure. In his five years with the Tigers, Hogans has been a part of the program that has posted a combined 159-30 record,

four-straight sweeps of the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and five-straight postseason trips, including four NCAA Tournament berths. The last four years, Hogans has been along on a magical ride that has seen Memphis go from November through the month of March Madness. The Tigers won an NCAA four-year record 137 games (137-14 record) from 2005-09 and became the first program in NCAA Division I history to have four-consecutive 30-win seasons (33-4 in 2005-06, 200607, 2008-09; 38-2 in 2007-08). The 38 victories in 2007-08 is an NCAA Division I single-season record. In that four-year span from 2005-09, Memphis advanced to four Sweet Sixteens, three Elite Eights, one Final Four and one NCAA championship game. The Tigers also had four-straight sweeps of the Conference USA regular season and tournament crowns, and carry a 61-game conference win streak into 2009-10. The streak is second-longest of its kind in NCAA Division I history. The Tigers finished each season from 2005-09 ranked in the top-five of the final Associated Press poll and top-10 of the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll. In his first season with Memphis in 2004-05, Hogans and the Tigers played into late March. Memphis posted a 22-16 record and advanced to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) semifinals.

C-USA is home to 12 nationally prominent, tradition-rich members in East Carolina, Houston, Marshall, Memphis, Rice, SMU, Southern Miss, Tulane, Tulsa, UAB, UCF and UTEP. This combination enhances Britton Banowsky men’s and women’s Commissioner programs that are immersed in athletic success and academic prowess.

Antonio Anderson hit the game-winning shot in the Tigers’ road victory at Tulsa. Anderson took the in-bounds pass from Willie Kemp near midcourt, dribbled through the Tulsa defense and scored a layup at the buzzer. The win kept Memphis’ C-USA win streak in tact, as the Tigers ended 2008-09 with their third-straight year with a perfect record in league play.
