fter finishing the 2006-07 season winning 14 of their last 18 games following Christmas break and posting the seventh-best finish in school history at 18-9 overall (11-3, SCAC), the Millsaps Majors look to pick up right where they left off, returning all five players from last year’s starting lineup including SCAC Player of the Year runner-up Edrick Montgomery. Millsaps returns to the court with the best assist to turnover ratio (1.06:1) out of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference last season, dishing out 371 dimes. They were also second in the league in steals (246), while ranking third in the SCAC in 3-point percentage (.364) and scoring offense (73.5 ppg). The Majors were picked to finish third this year in the SCAC Projected Order of Finish, earning 105 votes (4), just five behind Centre and DePauw who tied for first with 110 votes. In order to win games down the stretch, the Majors must be able to knock down key free throws after sinking a conference-worst 66 percent last season. Junior Chad Songy – a key sixth man from a year ago – led the squad at the stripe, shooting 85 percent. Junior Chris Sanders was second on the team at 74 percent, whereas seniors Deonte

Oscar and Lorenzo Bailey each shot just under 70 percent. “We should be much more experienced this year,” second-year assistant coach and former Millsaps shooting guard Justin LeBlanc said. “It’s the same group of guys coming back and they now have another year under their belts. Key players must continue to step up for us to be successful.” Of those “key” players, senior 6-foot-6 forward Edrick Montgomery (17.1 ppg, 9.8 rpg) will be the force on the low block after posting a team-best 10 double-doubles and falling just one rebound shy on eight different occasions. Montgomery was first in the league in defensive rebounds (7.19/game), second in field goal percentage (.547), third in blocks (27), fourth in offensive rebounds (2.59/game), ninth in steals (38) and 10th in free throw percentage (.658). In turn, Montgomery was a unanimous First Team All-SCAC selection and was named to D3hoops.com’s All-South Region Second Team. In addition to Montgomery, the Majors return three other starters who averaged double figures in the scoring column. Senior 6-foot-5 forward Rodney Rogan (13.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg), a three-year starter and a versatile player who can score from the post or from the perimeter, started in all 27 games last season and scored in double figures in all but seven. An SCAC Player of the Week selection in Week 8 and a Second Team All-SCAC selection at season’s end, Rogan ranked 10th in the league in assists (63) and 11th in scoring, while shooting a solid 48 percent from the floor. Rogan also chipped in 26 steals, 15 blocks and dished out a seasonhigh seven assists in a 78-74 win at Oglethorpe on Feb. 9. A huge threat from the outside and one of the scrappiest defenders on the Majors’ squad, 5-foot-10 guard Lorenzo Bailey returns to the starting lineup just 31 3-point baskets away from breaking the Millsaps career record of 180 set by Brad Price from 1993-96. Bailey started in 24 of 27 games last season and had at least one 3-point bucket in all but two games, breaking Jimmy Carr’s single-season record of 162 3-pointers attempted in 1987-88, attempting a total of 167. He also ranked fourth in the SCAC in steals (43), fifth in 3-pointers made (57), 13th in assists (55) and 20th in the league scoring (11.1 ppg). Sanders, a 6-foot-4 guard will also be a player to watch in 2007-08 after starting in 24 of 27 games last season. The Brandon, Miss., native averaged just under 27 minutes a game, while ranking second on the team behind Songy in free throw percentage (.738). Sanders provided an immediate impact for the Majors off the bench in the early part of the season and averaged 6.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game as a starter half a dozen games into the season. Senior guards Allen Odum and Deonte Oscar will most likely compete for the final starting slot in the Majors’ lineup this upcoming season, while junior guard Chad Songy will be

the first man called upon off the bench. A lockdown guard who held three of the top five scorers in the SCAC to season/conference lows, Odum started in 18 of 24 games last year and was the final Major who averaged double figures in scoring at 10.0 ppg. The Walls, Miss., native also ranked first on the team and eighth in the SCAC in assists (67) and fifth in 3-point percentage, connecting on 44-of-97 for 45 percent. Both Songy (six) and Oscar (eight) received a handful of starts last season, whereas Oscar played in all 27 games and Songy missed just one. The duo both averaged double digit totals in minutes played for the season and averaged right around 5.0 points and 2.0 assists per game. Songy made good on 22-of-26 free throws for a team-high 85 percent, while Oscar picked up 42 assists and 16 steals. Also returning for the Majors this season are sophomores Blake Martinez (22-0 GP-GS), Chris Ingle (26-0), Cameron Varnado (20-1), Alex Wills (3-0), Chris Steele (3-0), Jameel Rucker and Justin Polk and juniors Ross James (222) and Russell Booth (24-1) who each averaged just under 8 minutes per game. James and Booth are both tall forwards who can knock down the long shot in addition to forcing the opposition to alter their shot. Roscoe Forch is also back for the Majors after returning to Millsaps in the spring. The bench provided a huge spark for the Majors last season and will allow the team to go deep into the roster for key minutes this season. Millsaps also picked up seven freshmen in the offseason, adding Richard Craven (Baldwyn), Josh Colar (Archbishop Shaw), Andy Chlon (The Galloway School), Brett Hittel (Apopka HS), Austin Harvey (Brandon HS), Cody Aucoin (St. Paul’s HS) and Morgan Viel (Clear Creek HS) – a 6-foot-4 guard who averaged 10.0 points, 6.0 boards and 4.0 assists who should see selected playing time this season. The Majors’ 2007-08 schedule will feature 25 games (14 home, 11 away), including playing host to the Turkey Shootout during the Thanksgiving Holiday where the Hangar Dome will welcome Pensacola Christian College, Rust College and Louisiana College. Millsaps will also play at Division I opponent Southeastern Louisiana for the second consecutive season after falling to the Lions 90-67 in a game that saw the home team shoot a blistering 64 percent from the floor. The Lions are projected to finish fourth in the Southland Conference’s East Division with 32 points. The conference slate will feature nine home contests and seven away contests, highlighted by a crucial weekend Jan. 25-27 where the Majors will face off with the SCAC’s top two teams in Centre and DePauw – both of which advanced to the NCAA Div. III Tournament last season. For updated scores and stories visit the Millsaps men’s basketball web site at the address listed below.

the intense basketball action that you will have a chance to be apart of.” NCAA Basketball is a national sponsor of the Take A Kid to the Game program. To learn about other NCAA Basketball initiatives, please visit www.ncaa.org/bkbmarketingresource.org for more information. TAKG is a grassroots marketing campaign created by Host Communications, Inc. to encourage alumni and fans to take their kids out to stadiums and arenas to experience intercollegiate athletics. Kids had the opportunity to enjoy a fan fare from 5 – 6 p.m., while door prizes and other chances to win prizes were awarded throughout both the women’s and men’s basketball games. The first 25 kids in attendance received a Millsaps College t-shirt and a bag full of surprises, while all fans were treated to free games, face painting, popcorn and cotton candy. This year’s TAKG event is slated to take place on Saturday, Feb. 23, from noon - 5 p.m., so bring the whole family and continue to check the Millsaps web site for more details.

On January 26, 2007, Millsaps’ Hangar Dome played host to the visiting Centre College Colonels, where all area youth were invited to attend its inaugural “Take A Kid to the Game Day.” Kids had the opportunity to experience the college gameday atmosphere when Millsaps hosted NCAA Basketball’s 11th annual Take A Kid to the Game (TAKG) day celebration. Youth of all ages as well as all adults received free admission to watch the Millsaps Majors take on the Centre Colonels. Millsaps hosted one of more than 700 games that were played across the nation last season as part of the Take A Kid to the Game program. The project is a grass roots initiative that attracts the nation’s youth and encourages adults to take kids to area college basketball games. “We are pleased to extend the invitation to the community as we invite adults to bring children to experience a collegiate athletic event,” athletic director and head men’s basketball coach Tim Wise said. “It is our hope that there will be a record turn out as more and more children are able to take advantage of this truly memorable experience and worthwhile program. Millsaps is excited about

The first Dinner for Champions brought together Millsaps College supporters in an event guided by chairman of the M-Club Counsel Steve Hendrix and M-Club Director Jim Page. The featured speaker, former Auburn head coach and Hall of Famer Pat Dye, inspired student-athletes and guests as he discussed the importance of blending athletics and academics. What started out a year ago as an idea of former athletic director Ron Jurney developed into the exciting reality of an annual fundraiser to help support all of Millsaps Athletics. Held on Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the Sparkman Building at the Agriculture and Forestry Museum on Lakeland Drive, the fundraiser brought in more than 170 alumni and guests, with about 75 student-athletes and more than a dozen athletic staff members filling in as waiters, hosts and even parking attendants. And while athletics have always been a valuable part of the college experience at Millsaps, support was never more evident than in the money raised— just over $100,000-- and the turnout that Tuesday night. “I was overwhelmed by the amount of support from the M-Club Counsel, coaches, studentathletes and all of those who attended the dinner,” Page said. “It was an amazing evening, highlighted by a wonderful speaker in Pat Dye, who delivered such a great message about how athletics and academics can intertwine [which was] directed at not only people who attended the dinner but to all of our student-athletes.” With beautiful table decorations and heartfelt, autobiographical descriptions of student-athletes’ experiences, the atmosphere was one of love of athletics and a sense of dedication. Guests, who enjoyed a dinner prepared by Jay Schimmel and his staff at Schimmel’s Restaurant, were out in full force focusing on one common goal—a way to give financial support to all 14 intercollegiate sports offered at Millsaps in one fundraiser. “The amount of money raised will go a long way in promoting and reflecting our athletes’ life experiences at Millsaps College,” Page continued. “I can’t begin to thank all of our donors, alumni, friends, family and staff members who went the extra mile to make this thing happen. I have always been proud to be a Major, but that one night was extra special. With the continued support of Millsaps Athletics, the student-athletes of today and tomorrow will reap the benefits of this annual event.” All proceeds from the Dinner for Champions banquet go directly to the Millsaps athletic programs and will help ensure that the athletic facilities and programs parallel the level of academic excellence that is a tradition at the College. For more information or to give to the athletic program at Millsaps, please contact Coach Jim Page at 601.974.1196.

Look across the Millsaps College campus toward the Boyd Campbell College Center, and you’ll see a great potted oak tree outside. A potted oak tree? The story goes that in 1957, when the College Center was being built, the contour of land was too uneven to support the building. A great deal of earth had to be moved into what was known as “Sullivan’s Hollow” before construction could ever begin. However, placing such large quantities of dirt around the trunk of the old water oak would have ensured its demise. To save the tree, the builders constructed a brick and cement pot around the base. This elegent solution saved a majestic bastion of the College. It is also symbolic of the dedication of Millsaps to preserve the past, while giving students the tools necessary to move forward with one of the most valuable educations available. Today, the oak tree provides students with an outside gathering place and shade from the Mississippi sun, while the College Center serves as the hub of student activity. This center for gathering extends into the famous Millsaps Bowl, a beautiful green space bordered by azaleas and shaded by other towering oaks, a setting for festivals, afternoon frisbee games, outdoor classes, and gradution exercises. Students flourish in this 100acre campus in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi.

as a liberal arts college and our historical role in the mission of the Methodist Church, we will continue to provide a learning environment that increases knowledge, strengthens ethical principles, deepens the understanding of faith, and inspires the development of mature and responsible citizens,” says Lucas. Millsaps provides the perfect atmosphere for learning, with one teacher for every 11 students and an average class size of 15. Students who enter Millsaps have intellectual firepower (most are in the top 25% of their high school class), and they know that at Millsaps they will be taught by individuals who are as serious about learning as they are. The faculty members at Millsaps have studied and taught in many of the nation’s most prestigious institutions, but choose to teach in a personalized environment where professors are accessible and classroom discussions are encouraged. Millsaps professors say that their students have opportunities to interact with each other and faculty in ways that wouldn’t be possible at larger colleges. “I’m proud I’ve been able to help my students go on to do interesting things with their lives,” says Dr. Iren Omo-Bare, chair of the political science department. “At least two of my former students are now working in areas of foreign policy, and one just became a Rhodes Scholar. All of my colleagues have stories like this.”

Perfect Atmosphere for Learning The college was founded in 1890, thanks to the foresight of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, and cofounders Dr. William B. Murrah and Methodist Bishop Charles B. Galloway. The Major dedicated $50,000, which was matched by contributions from Mississippi Methodists toward the establishment of “a Christian college within the borders of our state.” Today, Millsaps President Frances Lucas sees a future of opportunities to prepare the next generation of leaders. “By keeping true to our character

Benchmarks in Education While Millsaps’ hallmark is consistent excellence maintained over the years, the school has also enjoyed many firsts. It was the first honors college in Mississippi and boasts 22 honor societies, including the most prestigious honor society in the United States, Phi Beta Kappa. PBK has recognized students for their intellectual capacities, especially in the liberal arts and sciences, for more then 200 years. Millsaps also encourages the classic tradition of the student-athlete; as a matter of fact, the College has won

Changing Lives Dr. Frances Lucas, named Millsaps’ 10th (and first female) president in January of 2000, says that Millsaps is distinguished from other colleges by a commitment to making a difference – one life at a time. “Our faculty, staff, students and alumni understand that the Millsaps educational experience is about changing lives,” says Lucas. “Whether it is a faculty member who joins students for lunch to discuss an honors project, or an alumnus who forms a team of community volunteers to complete the construction of a Habitat house, the desire to make a difference is pervasive at Millsaps.” Millsaps partners with the Jackson community and the United Methodist Church to bring cultural and economic enrichment to local citizens. Millsaps produces and supports concerts and forums that are open to the public. In addition, the Millsaps Arts and Lecture Series has brought world-renowned scholars and performers such as The New Yorker columnist Davis McCullough, the Harvard Glee Club, and the famous Golden Dragon Acrobats to entertain and inform the Jackson community. Millsaps has also created a Speakers’ Bureau through which faculty and staff volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of local civic and business organizations. Millsaps was the first college in Mississippi to institute a campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Through the campus chapter, Millsaps students,

faculty, and alumni continue to change the lives of many families in the Jackson area. Awards and Accreditations Millsaps College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the degrees of: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Science, Master of Accountancy, and Master of Business Administration. Millsaps is one of a small group of national liberal arts colleges in the United States to hold both a Phi Beta Kappa chapter and accreditation at both the graduate and undergraduate level by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business). The colleges’ education and chemistry departments are also accredited by NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) and the American Chemistry Society, respectively. Millsaps College continues to receive national recognition for excellence in college guides and other national publications. Its placement in the top tier of liberal arts colleges nationally by U.S.

News and World Report’s 2006 America’s Best Colleges makes Millsaps the top ranked liberal arts college in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama, and among the top five in the Deep South.

The College is listed in U.S. News under “Programs To Look For” with sixteen in the nation that makes writing a priority – including Amherst, Harvard, and Duke. The Princeton Review 2006 edition of The Best 361 Colleges ranks Millsaps as one of the best in the southeast and as 17th for encouragement of class discussions. Millsaps is highlighted as one of the 40 colleges across the country in Colleges That Change Lives by Loren Pope. The 2005 editions of The Unofficial, Unbiased Guide to the 331 Most Interesting Colleges, The Insiders Guide to the Colleges, and the Templeton Foundation’s Colleges That Encourage Character Development all attest to the quality and value of Millsaps programs.

OVERVIEW There’s no better way to sample the South than Jackson, Mississippi. A blend of the old and the new, Jackson offers glimpses of the past while looking ahead to the future. From fabulous history, art and science museums to world-class exhibits and performances, Jackson is a secret full of surprises! Mississippi’s Capital City is conveniently located at the crossroads of Interstate 55 (north-south) and Interstate 20 (east-west) in the heart of our “Hospitality State.” As the center for the Metro Jackson area, home to more than 425,000 people, the city of Jackson is steeped in history, music, performing arts, sports, and our truly Southern way of life. HISTORY The City of Jackson was founded in 1821 at the site of a trading post situated on a bluff on the west bank of the Pearl River. Legend tells that the trading post was operated by a French-Canadian trader named Louis LeFleur, and the town originally was called LeFleur’s Bluff. The Mississippi State Legislature wanted the seat of government moved out of the Natchez area and into a more central location. It commissioned three men to locate an ideal place for a town that could become the state capital. After surveying areas north and east of present day Jackson, Thomas Hinds, James Patton and William Lattimore proceeded southwest along the Pearl River until they reached LeFleur’s Bluff in Hinds County. Their report to the General Assembly was this location had “beautiful and healthful surroundings, good water, abundant timber, navigable waters, and proximity to the Natchez Trace.” A legislative act dated November 28, 1821, authorized the location to be the permanent seat of government for the state and ordered that it be named Jackson, in honor of Major General Andrew Jackson who would later become the seventh president of the United States. During the Civil War, the town was ravaged and burned three times by

Union troops under the command of General William Tecumseh Sherman. Surprisingly, the City Hall, which was built in 1846 for less than $8,000, was spared the torch. It was rumored that Sherman bypassed the building, which is still the working seat of municipal government, because it housed a Masonic Lodge and that the Union leader was a Mason. More likely, its use as a hospital was the reason the building was not burned. Although less than 8,000 people lived in the Jackson area at the turn of the century, its population began accelerating rapidly after 1900, and it became one of the dynamic growth areas of the Sunbelt. The latest census figures put Jackson’s population at 184,256. The year 1985 marked a change in the form of government in Jackson. During a special election, in the fall of 1984, citizens voted to replace the three-man commission, with a mayor and commissioners elected at-large, to a mayor-council form of government. The process allows for the mayor to be elected at-large and seven council members elected from wards. In 2005, Jackson voters overwhelmingly elected Frank Melton as Mayor in his first bid to elective office. Current City Council Members include Ben Allen, Ward 1; Leslie Burl McLemore, Ward 2; Kenneth I. Stokes, Ward 3; Frank Bluntson, Ward 4; Charles Tillman, Ward 5; Marshand K. Crisler, Ward 6; and Margaret C. Barrett-Simon, Ward 7. Jacksonians are extremely proud of their famed southern hospitality and quality of life. Community support is strong for the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, the Mississippi Opera, and the Atlanta Braves Triple-A Affilate Mississippi Braves professional baseball team, along with the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Natural Science Museum, Agriculture and Forestry Museum, Mississippi Children’s Museum and the SmithRobertson Museum and Cultural Center, along with the Old Capitol Museum and other venues. In association with Varna, Bulgaria, Tokyo, and Moscow, Jackson hosts the

PARKS & RECREATION There are 54 city parks and facilities in Jackson, which cover around 2,300 acres of land. These areas include playgrounds, swimming pools, golf courses, tennis courts, picnic grounds, and jogging and walking paths. Special facilities include community centers, which are available for public use; Smith Wills Stadium, Mynelle Gardens, the city’s botanical gardens and the Jackson Zoo. All properties are patrolled by City of Jackson Park Rangers. The City of Jackson offers a wide variety of recreational programs; athletics for youth and

adults, including softball, flag football, basketball and baseball leagues; swimming, golfing and tennis lessons; neighborhood festivals; after-school programs; and seasonal clinics. MISSISSIPPI FAIRGROUNDS The Fairgrounds Complex, which covers over 100 acres, hosts more than 700-event days per year. With different facilities for exhibitions, trade and consumer shows, you’ll find all the elements, along with Mississippi’s tradition of hospitality, to make a truly successful event. The Complex is an integral part of beautiful downtown Jackson, where the charm of the old and new south blends to form a modern city with a wealth of activities and cultural attractions. THALIA MARA HALL The Municipal Auditorium of the City of Jackson and a facility managed by the Department of Human and Cultural Services, the 2,000 seat theater is located in the downtown arts and cultural district of Jackson. Thalia Mara Hall was built in 1968 and at that time was called the Jackson Municipal Auditorium. In 1975, the Jackson Ballet Guild invited Miss Thalia Mara, a Chicago native with an extensive career as a performer in the United States and abroad, to develop a professional ballet company and school in the state of Mississippi. In 1979, as part of her development plan, she secured the International Ballet Competition (IBC) for the City of Jackson. By an act of the United States Congress, Jackson was named the official USA home of the IBC. The Competition is held quadrennially at Thalia Mara Hall. In 1994, the Jackson City Council voted to rename the Jackson Municipal Auditorium “Thalia Mara Hall.”

The Mississippi Arts Pavilion is home to the International Commission for Cultural Exchange, which has hosted several exhibits, including The Palaces of St. Petersburg, The Splendors of Versailles, The Majesty of Spain and The Glory of Baroque: Dresden exhibitions. Gourmet dining and nightlife sparkle on the Jackson scene. A mix of cultural and ethnic groups provide the city with cuisine that is truly international. One can choose Greek, Continental, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, French, Indian, Mexican, Thai, Mexican, Russian, Arab or good old Southern cuisine. Jackson is a city with wonderful citizens, who are dedicated to providing the energy to meet today’s challenges and to make The City of Grace and Benevolence one of “America’s Most Livable Cities.”

What is the SCAC? The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) was formed to provide an association through which the member institutions may encourage organized competition in intercollegiate sports among teams representative of their respective student bodies. Members of this conference share a commitment to priority of the overall quality of academic standards and quality educational experiences. The SCAC is currently comprised of Austin College of Sherman, Texas; Centre College of Danville, Ky.; Colorado College of Colorado Springs, Colo.; DePauw University of Greencastle, Ind.; Hendrix College of Conway, Ark.; Millsaps College of Jackson, Miss.; Oglethorpe University of Atlanta, Ga.; Rhodes College of Memphis, Tenn.; The University of the South of Sewanee, Tenn.; Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas; and Trinity University of San Antonio, Texas. The SCAC office is located in suburban Atlanta, Ga., in Suwanee. History of the SCAC The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) was founded and began operation on September 1, 1962, as the College Athletic Conference (CAC). Centre College of Danville, Ky.; Southwestern at Memphis (Tenn.) (now known as Rhodes College); The University of the South of Sewanee, Tenn.; and Washington and Lee University of Lexington, Va., were the four charter members of the conference. Later in 1962, Washington University of St. Louis, Mo., became the fifth member and the CAC remained unchanged until 1972. Following membership changes throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the conference went through restructuring and renaming. With the addition of Millsaps College of Jackson, Miss., Trinity University of San Antonio, Texas, in 1988, Hendrix College of Conway, Ark., and

Oglethorpe University of Atlanta, Ga., in 1991, membership reached a then alltime high of eight. In 1991, the conference renamed itself the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, its first full-time commissioner Steve Argo was hired, and a conference office was established in Atlanta, Ga. The SCAC added Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas, in 1993 with participation beginning in the 1994-95 academic year. In 1997-98, the SCAC added DePauw University of Greencastle, Ind., with participation beginning in 1998-99. In 2005, Austin College of Sherman, Texas and Colorado College of Colorado Springs, Colo., were confirmed as members of the league with participation beginning in the 2006-07 academic year. Birmingham-Southern College of Birmingham, Ala., was approved as the 12th member of the SCAC with play in 2007-08. Sports Sponsorship The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) sponsors conference championships in 19 sports, including nine for men and 10 for women. The SCAC currently hosts conference championships in baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, softball, men’s swimming and diving, women’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, men’s outdoor track, women’s outdoor track, and women’s volleyball.

The President’s Trophy is displayed for one year on the campus of the school with the combined men’s and women’s athletics program that accumulates the highest points total in the all-sports race established by the conference. The bell is awarded at the conclusion of the Spring Sports Festival. SCAC member institutions are committed to sponsoring a variety of varsity sports to maximize opportunities for student participation. SCAC schools also operate under the principle that participation in sports should be solely from student interest and enjoyment of athletic competition, and that no financial aid shall be given to any student which is conditional upon athletic ability or participation in intercollegiate sports.
