Eagle Basketball Players Enjoy Quality

G

Grote-Thompson Hall is one of the best on-campus housing arrangements in the country. I have coached at LSU, Idaho and Middle Tennessee, and this is by far the best housing situation that I have had for our players. With the buffets available in the Adron Doran University Center and Alumni Tower and the number of other dining opportunities at MSU, our players have excellent quality, quantity and variety in their food choices.

rote-Thompson Hall is conveniently located on University Boulevard on MSU’s main campus. Though located in MSU’s Historic District, it was recently completely remodeled and has spacious rooms located within steps of lounge and kitchenette areas, along with a basement recreation and living room area. Grote-Thompson Hall sits adjacent to most classroom buildings and is just a short walk from the Adron Doran University Center where the University Bookstore and several dining facilities are located. The Alumni Tower grill and cafeteria are also located near Grote-Thompson Hall. Dining opportunities for Eagle basketball players range from buffets to some of the best-liked and well-known national and regional establishments.

Eagle Coaching Staff


Head Coach

Donnie Tyndall D

14

onnie Tyndall, the 2007-08 Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year, is in his fifth season as men’s head basketball coach at Morehead State University. Under Tyndall’s guidance, the Eagles have improved each season, with back-to-back postseason appearances and Morehead State’s first OVC Tournament title and NCAA bid since 1984. In returning the Eagles to prominence, Tyndall led MSU over Alabama State in the NCAA Tournament Opening Round, the first NCAA Tournament win for an OVC team since 1989. Tyndall’s 2009-10 team posted the second most wins in school history with 24, finishing 24-11 overall. MSU also broke the school’s record for OVC win total with 15, finishing 15-3 in league play. The Eagles advanced to the OVC title game for the second straight year and finished the season by playing in the College Basketball Invitational, during which MSU defeated Colorado State. Tyndall is the first coach in MSU history to have back-to-back 20-win seasons and just the second coach in school history to win two postseason games. The 2008-09 Eagles finished with a 20-16 overall record, the first time since 2002-03 that a Morehead State team has reached 20 wins. Tyndall is only the third coach in school history to have a 20-win season, and he is the only coach to accomplish the feat in fewer than four years. Tyndall’s first Morehead State team more than tripled the win total from the previous year. The 2006-07 Eagles were picked 11th in the Ohio Valley Conference but finished seventh and advanced to the conference tournament for the first time in three seasons. The 2007-08 team continued the steady progress by picking up 15 wins and finishing third in the conference standings even though it was picked 10th in the preseason league rankings. The season was highlighted by a 10-0

Morehead State, 1993 Fifth Season start in Johnson Arena. That start matched the best start at home in school history. Tyndall has led an impressive turnaround in the last four years, so good that it ranks as the top turnaround in Division I men’s basketball. The Eagles’ RPI (Ratings Percentage Index) jumped a whopping 237 spots, from 321, which was where MSU was rated the year before Tyndall’s arrival, to 84th last season. Entering the 2010-11 season, Tyndall is 47-27 in Ohio Valley Conference games since being named MSU head coach and he also has been tough to beat at Johnson Arena. Tyndall is 46-14 in “Tyndalltown” as head coach at Morehead State. Well respected both in the Morehead community and within the college coaching ranks, Tyndall was named as one of the Top 10 “Under the Radar” coaches by Athlon Sports this year. He also served as the co-chair for the MSU Capital Campaign in 2009 and was a Top 20 finalist in the voting for Lexington Herald-Leader’s Kentucky Sportsman of the Year in 2009. An MSU alumnus who was a basketball letterwinner, he is the 12th head coach in the history of the Eagle program. He returned to his alma mater from the position of associate head coach at Middle Tennessee State University where he had served for four years. A NCAA Division I assistant coach for nearly 10 years, the 40-year old Tyndall spent one season

B a s k e t b a l l


Taylor, Donnie and Gracie

as associate head coach at the University of Idaho. Prior to that, he was an assistant coach for four seasons at Louisiana State University. In 199697, Tyndall served as head coach at St. Catharine College in Springfield, Ky., for a season. After graduation from MSU, he spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge, Iowa. “In conducting a national search and speaking with literally hundreds of people, it became apparent that someone with a commitment to recruiting high level student-athletes, a passion for the game and certainly a fondness for Morehead State would emerge as our new head men’s basketball coach,” said MSU Athletic Director Brian Hutchinson. “Donnie Tyndall has all the requisite experience, having been a Division I assistant for nearly 10 years. He is proving himself to be absolutely the right person to lead this program into prominence regionally and nationally.” At MTSU, Tyndall teamed with head coach Kermit Davis to lead the Blue Raiders to four consecutive winning seasons, averaging 17 wins a campaign. As recruiting coordinator, he directed MTSU recruiting efforts that resulted in two classes being ranked in the Top 25 nationally. “Hoop Scoop” ranked the 2003 class 23rd, and

the 2004 class was ranked 11th nationally. Each class was selected as the number one class in the Sun Belt Conference by that basketball publication. While many of his responsibilities centered around recruiting, Tyndall also played instrumental roles in practice and game preparation, coordinating scouting reports and practice organization and in academic monitoring. While he was at Idaho, the Vandals’ 2002 recruiting class was ranked as high as 15th nationally. Tyndall also served as scouting coordinator. As the individual in charge of academic progress, he helped the team earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.6 (on a 4.0 scale), the best at the school in more than a decade. During his tenure on John Brady’s staff at LSU, Tyndall helped recruit three classes that were ranked among the Top 25 nationally. In 2000, LSU won the SEC and advanced to the Sweet 16. Three of the recruited student-athletes went on to play in the NBA, five earned All-Southeast Conference honors, and five were named Academic All-SEC. As the Tigers’ academic coordinator, he helped improve the basketball team’s grade point average from 1.7 in 1996 to 2.65 in 2001. During his one season as head coach at St. Catharine, he led the team to a school-record 30-5 mark and to the National Junior College Athletic Association National Tournament for the first time in school history. Tyndall was named the Kentucky-Tennessee Junior College Coach of the Year and was also named the top coach in Region VII. Illustrating his emphasis on academic achievement, the team’s grade point average improved from 1.81 to 2.64, and all six of the sophomores on the squad earned associate degrees. As an assistant coach at Iowa Central, he had on-floor coaching and recruiting duties and organized and supervised the team’s strength and conditioning program. A native of Grand Rapids, Mich., Tyndall played at Northview High School, then one season at Iowa Central (1989-90). He was a member of Eagle teams for three seasons (1990-93). Tyndall played with Athletes in Action after completing his career at MSU. He earned a bachelor’s degree from MSU (1993) and a master’s degree from LSU. Tyndall has two daughters, Taylor Elise and Grace Elizabeth.

He is a wonderful person to be around, and an excellent coach who cares about the welfare and development of his players.” John Brady, Head Coach, Arkansas State

“I know Donnie is so excited to be at Morehead State, his alma mater. He is building a solid foundation and I sense his excitement and hard work will continue to turn the program around.” Bill Self, Head Coach, Kansas University KU ®

“As I observed Donnie as an assistant at LSU, I knew he was a very special coach. His work ethic was unmatched and his love of the game was evident. The confidence he exhibited and the respect he had for his players in practice was very impressive to me. Morehead State has a great young man running its program.” Joe Dean, Retired Athletic Director, LSU

The Patriots were ranked as high as 16th in the country by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). O’Connor spent 10 years among the NCAA D-I coaching ranks. From 1994-96 he was on staff at Marshall University, under current Florida head coach Billy Donovan. The Thundering Herd won the Northern Division of the Southern Conference in 1994-95. After Marshall, O’Conner moved onto Oliver Purnell’s staff at Dayton, from 1996-2000. In the 1997-98 season, Dayton was 21-12 and

oseph Price is in his first season on the men’s basketball coaching staff at Morehead State. Price will be responsible for assisting in all aspects of Eagle basketball, including recruiting, scouting and game preparation and player development. He joins the MSU staff after stints on the Ball State and IUPUI coaching staffs and a successful playing career. He recently concluded his third season with head coach Billy Taylor at Ball State, where he helped the Cardinals claim the Mid-American Conference West Division in 2008-09 and played a pivotal role in recruiting. That year’s recruiting class was ranked in the top 80 by hoopmasters.com. Price oversaw guard development at Ball State, playing a key role last year in the maturation of sophomore guard Randy Davis into one of the MAC’s premiere guards. Under Price, Davis raised his scoring average to 10.3 points per game on the year, an improvement from 2.7 points per game as a freshman. His average jumped to 13.2 points per game against conference opponents, making him BSU’s leading scorer in league

games. Freshman guard Jauwan Scaife earned MAC All-Freshman honors, finishing the season third on the team in scoring at 10.2 points per game, ranking third best among MAC rookies. Price also was instrumental in the development of guard Brandon Lampley who earned Honorable Mention All-MAC honors during 2008-09, his senior year. Lampley finished second on the team in scoring at 10.0 points per game and led the MAC in three-point shooting during conference play at 53.5 percent shooting. He spent five seasons as an assistant coach at IUPUI prior to Ball State. At IUPUI, Price’s primary role included player development, opponent scouting and recruiting, while also working with the post players along with individual defensive and shooting instruction. In 2005-06, IUPUI was among the nation’s best free throw shooting teams, and in 2004-05, the Jaguars’ Brandon Cole and Akeem Clark teamed to create one of the most formidable three-point shooting duos in the country. In addition to his prowess at instructing guards and teaching shooting, he has played a role in the development of post skills as well. His work with 2003 Mid-Continent Conference Player of the Year Odell Bradley allowed Bradley to develop into an inside-outside threat as a senior. Price’s post work came to fruition when the Jaguars’ outrebounded opponents by better than three boards per contest in 2004-05. Price was named to the Indiana Basketball Hall

Joseph brings a track record of being an outstanding recruiter. He is very charismatic and personable, and having played at the highest level [Notre Dame], and 13 years professionally in Europe allows him to be a great mentor to our players. — Head Coach Donnie Tyndall

of Fame’s 2007 Men’s Silver Anniversary Team which recognizes outstanding high school graduates from 25 years earlier. Price is well respected among his basketball peers for his ability to shoot and teach up-and-coming players the fundamentals of shooting. Locally active in his communities, Price has made numerous speaking appearances all over the state of Indiana including to youth groups prior to Indiana Fever games at Conseco Fieldhouse. He was a motivational speaker for the Executive Service Corps of Indiana through the United Way, speaking to students about athletics and academics. Price played collegiately at Notre Dame for coach Digger Phelps (current ESPN Analyst). He also played for a core of talented assistant coaches in Pete Gillen (Virginia), Jim Baron (Rhode Island) and Gary Brokaw (NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats). Following his senior season, he was chosen in the 1986 NBA Draft by the Washington Bullets in the seventh round. The Irish went 84-37 with Price on the roster, including a run to the postseason National Invitational Tournament (NIT) finals his sophomore year. During his senior season, when he averaged a career-best 6.2 points per game as the first off the bench, the Irish ranked as high as tenth in The Associated Press poll. When he finished he ranked fifth all-time at Notre Dame in career games played (115). He now stands 16th in that category in the Irish record books. The 6-foot-5 Price played professionally overseas in France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Spain. He also instructed at the Swiss All-Star Basketball Camps every summer during his playing career. With St. Prex in 1987-88, Price helped the basketball club to the Switzerland Second Division League-B Championship. He also played with Dallas Mavericks’ star forward Dirk Nowitzki in Germany for DJK S. Oliver Wurzburg in 1998-99. Prior to college, he excelled on the hardwood at Marion High School in Marion, Ind. He was a three-time All-North Central Conference selection for Indiana Hall of Fame coach Bill Green. He also served as team captain and was a member of the Indiana All-Star Team and a Mr. Basketball candidate as a senior. He was the junior varsity coach at Indianapolis Manual High School in 2001-02. Price received his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Notre Dame in 1986. He has one daughter, Naomi.

Maze Stallworth Graduate Manager

D

Morehead State University, 2010 First Season

onnie Tyndall’s first recruit at Morehead State, former Eagle standout Maze Stallworth, has joined Tyndall’s staff as a graduate manager for the 2010-11 season. Stallworth, who finished his undergraduate degree in University Studies, was a key cog in Tyndall’s backto-back 20-win seasons. Stallworth became the Eagles’ all-time leading 3-point shooter during his senior season. During his junior season, he set the records for triples made (87) and attempted (229) in a single season. He added to that total as a senior, finishing his career as the Eagles’ all-time leader with 283 3-pointers made and 736 attempted. Both records broke former MSU great Ricky Minard’s career marks. He was just one 3-pointer shy of the single game record as well. Stallworth ranks 15th all-time in scoring at MSU, and was the 28th player in Morehead State history to reach 1,000 career points,

passing the mark with a 12-point performance against Kent State. A native of Elizabethtown, Ky., Stallworth led his high school team to Kentucky’s “Sweet 16” state tournament in 2005-06. He was named co-most valuable player of the Fifth Region Tournament. As a senior, he averaged 17.2 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 2.0 assists and was named Second-Team All-State by both the Lexington Herald-Leader and the Louisville Courier-Journal. He was the all-time leading scorer in John Hardin history with 1,491 points.

Maze was my first recruit when I came to MSU. There is not a tougher, better, more loyal person to myself and to Morehead State than Maze Stallworth. I truly believe he will be an outstanding coach and have a great career. — Head Coach Donnie Tyndall

2010-11 Season Outlook


2010-11 Season Outlook

H

44

aving a roster full of newcomers and high expectations is a rare thing in college basketball, but that’s exactly what Morehead State coach Donnie Tyndall faces as he enters year five at his alma mater. The Eagles, who were picked second in the Ohio Valley Conference preseason poll, return five players off of last year’s team and have nine new faces. But among those returnees is a core of players who have been instrumental in returning MSU to prominence within the OVC and making the Eagle program one of the most recognizable mid-majors over the past three years. Coming off of a record-breaking season, Tyndall whose teams have improved each season he’s been at MSU, faces the daunting task of matching or bettering last year’s record number of conference wins (15) and second best overall wins (24). The top spot on Tyndall’s to do list, however, has more to do with postseason play. He’d like to return the Eagles to the NCAA Tournament with the intent of winning a game in the big dance. Tyndall’s high expectations come from a quick glance at the 2010-11 MSU roster. Dominating center Kenneth Faried returns for his senior season as Tyndall’s bigtime rebounder and energetic fan favorite. The reigning OVC Player of the Year and two-time OVC Defensive Player of the Year, Faried flirted with the NBA in the spring before returning to Morehead State with the intention of bringing another OVC title to MSU. Faried’s return makes the paint a very difficult place for MSU’s opponents on both ends of the floor, but after being short a true power forward last season, Tyndall has made sure Faried won’t be alone in the post. Miami (Ohio) transfer Drew Kelly is a physical, big-bodied talent that is slated to be the starter in the four position once he completes his transfer year in residency as prescribed by the NCAA. Kelly, a 6-7, 225-pound sophomore can play the four or five position and will both compliment and substitute for Faried.

Terrance Hill is a legitimate outside threat for the Eagles this season.

“Drew is a physically tough player who’s a good rebounder and a good passer and he will allow us to do some things with Kenneth that we haven’t done in the past,” Tyndall said. Junior college transfer Romaric Lasme will also see significant time in the four position. Not as physical as Kelly, Lasme is a 6-7, 215-pound junior out of Laramie County Community College who is long, athletic and has strong shotblocking tendencies. He is still improving his skill set and adjusting to Tyndall’s system, but will be able to contribute immediately.

E a g l e

Tyndall’s other options in the post include a trio of freshmen. Arthur McMillan, a 6-6, 235pound freshman has the talent and size to play immediately, but must adjust mentally and physically to the rigors of the college game. Dionte Ferguson is another player Tyndall expects will develop into a nice player and has good potential, but is a raw talent. A freshman, Ferguson is 6-7, 215 pounds and can play in either post position. Shannon Williams is the third post player in the 2010 recruiting class. A 6-8, 230pound freshman, Williams will add much-needed depth to the Eagles front line. Outside of Faried, the core of returnees are all guards, which will prompt Tyndall to run a threeguard system in order to get his most experienced, best players on the floor for the majority of the minutes. All four returning guards have starting experience and two of the four are versatile enough to play any of the three guard positions. Leading that class is senior Demonte Harper. A preseason AllConference selection, Harper is a 6-4, 185-pound, talented guard who will be Tyndall’s go-to perimeter player. Harper will be the Eagles’ starting point guard, but expect to see him play some shooting guard and some three-guard. He is the most versatile offensive player MSU has and is a legitimate scoring threat from off the dribble or as a bull’s-eye perimeter shooter. As a four-year player in Tyndall’s system and a four-year teammate of Faried’s, Harper has a sixth sense about the Eagle offensive game and personnel, so he can be creative in his ball distribution to create opportunities for other players. “Demonte is battle-tested and he’s really embraced the [point guard] position more than in the past,” Tyndall said. Fellow senior Sam Goodman will start at the three-guard slot. A 6-2, 185-pound guard, Goodman’s athleticism allows him to leap and defend both quick guards and larger forwards. MSU’s best perimeter defender, Goodman has improved

B a s k e t b a l l


significantly over last season. His jumping ability makes him an exciting offensive player, especially in his ability to chase down offensive rebounds and create second chances. “Sam has really improved, he’s a great offensive rebounder and our best perimeter defender,” Tyndall said. Juniors Terrance Hill and Ty Proffitt will share time at the two guard position, but look for the 6-4, 200-pound Proffitt to serve as a utility guard, much like Harper. A natural shooter, Proffitt is a heady player who can run the point as a true floor general or play the three guard. “Ty can play some point, but we want him to play off the ball too. We also need his leadership ability on the court,” Tyndall said. Hill is a 6-1, 170-pound athletic sharpshooter who has developed into a threat to drive the ball. He also adds a tenacious defense, pressuring the ball. “Terrance might be the most improved player in the OVC; he’s shooting the ball with a lot of confidence and driving now,” Tyndall said. “He’s also a guy that really pressures the ball.” Demonte Harper is a versatile player that will contribute significantly.

Along with Harper and Proffitt, expect transfer Lamont Austin to see significant time at the point guard position. A 6-0, 175-pound junior, Austin was recruited by Tyndall to play the point and can be good in defensive pressure as well, where he’s skilled at guarding off the dribble. Fellow freshman Reggie Williams is a combo guard and has the potential to play the point guard or shooting guard. He can drive and shoot, much in the same mold as Harper, and if he has the right mindset, he has the makings of a true scorer. Kevin Gray will come off the bench to provide a scoring spark. Arguably the Eagles’ best shooter, Gray is a 5-10, 175-pound freshman. The final player on the 2010-11 Eagle rosters is walk-on Taylor Maze. A product of nearby Bath County High School, Maze is rehabbing from knee surgery and is expected to red-shirt this season. “This is the deepest team we’ve had during my time at Morehead State,” Tyndall said. “I like our athleticism and I think our press and pressure defense will wear people down.” The Eagles will have their hands full with a tough schedule that includes several successful mid-major programs and a talented Ohio Valley Conference.

“We’ve got Ohio State and Florida, OSU is a preseason Top 20 and Florida is preseason #16,” Tyndall said. “Northern Iowa was a Sweet 16 participant, Kent State was an NIT participant that won the MAC regular season and is picked to do so again and Ball State is picked to win the other side of the MAC. “The OVC is the deepest it’s been in years, you look at EKU that went to the post season last year, Murray State won an NCAA Tournament game and we went to the post season. The other top teams, Eastern Illinois and Austin Peay will be tough too.” Despite the tough schedule, Tyndall likes the way his team is shaping up, mostly in their character. I really like that our best player is very humble and I think that trickles down,” Tyndall said. “We’re aggressive but unselfish and our players care as much about the assists as scoring buckets.” That’s a team trait that will serve the Eagles well, turning a crop of new faces, past successes and high expectations into another winning season and championship run. Kenneth Faried will try to return the Eagles to the Big Dance as a senior.

The Ohio Valley Conference

E

54

ntering its 63rd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud history dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles (Turkey) Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially. During times of racial segregation, league member Morehead State became one of the first non-traditionally black mid-southern institutions to accept a black student. In 1958, Marshall Banks earned athletically-related aid at Morehead State, which signed a second black athlete, Howard Murphy, a year later. In 1961, Murphy earned all-conference recognition as a halfback in football. With racial barriers broken, the rest of the institutions in the league began to provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. In 1955, the OVC became only the second sixmember league nationally to earn an automatic bid to the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Tour-

nament, which, at that time, was limited to only 24 participants. The Conference quickly proved worthy of that bid, as Morehead State defeated Marshall (107-92) and Wayne State (95-84) in the 1956 tournament. Fifteen years later, former OVC member Western Kentucky became the first and only Conference team to reach the Final Four. The Hilltoppers defeated Jacksonville, Kentucky and Ohio State before losing to Villanova in double overtime. WKU went on to finish in third place after beating Kansas 77-75 in the consolation game. Since that time, the OVC has recorded some of the biggest upsets in the history of the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps the most famous moment came in 1987, when Austin Peay came from fourth place in the regular season to win the OVC Tournament and earn the league’s automatic bid. The Governors drew powerful Illinois, and were such big underdogs, that ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale promised to stand on his head if APSU won the game. After a 68-67 victory over the Illini, and a narrow 90-87 overtime loss to eventual Final Four participant Providence in the second round, Vitale made good on his promise in a visit to Clarksville two months later. Murray State added to the OVC’s string of upsets in 1988 when it knocked off 14th-ranked North Carolina State, 78-75. The Racers’ M&M Boys - Jeff Martin and Don Mann - combined for 39 points in the win. MSU nearly went on to the Sweet 16 that year, losing to eventual national champion Kansas, 61-58. A bank shot by Mann that would’ve given the Racers a one-point lead rolled off the rim with three seconds left. In 1990 as a No. 16 seed, Murray State took No. 1 seed Michigan State into overtime before falling 75-71; that game still marks the closest a No. 16 seed has come to knocking off a No. 1 in men’s tournament action. More recently, Murray State has dominated the OVC Tournament, reaching the championship game every year in the 1990s. The Racers’ 14 OVC Tournament Championships are the most among all OVC schools. After former member Middle Tennessee State won a first round game in 1989, the league had a drought as no other OVC team won a NCAA Tournament game for the next 19 years. But Morehead State, coming off a thrilling double overtime OVC Tournament victory over Austin Peay, topped Alabama State 58-43 in the Opening Round game at Flyer Arena in Dayton, Ohio. The game was played in front of an Opening Round record crowd of 11,346; that crowd included many MSU fans who made the three hour drive from Morehead for the game. The Eagles season would

come to an end three days later when they lost to No. 1 overall seed Louisville, despite playing the Cardinals close for a majority of the game. In 2009-10, Murray State made OVC history by winning a record 31 games (31-5) on its way to the league’s regular season and tournament championship. In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the No. 13 seed Racers topped Vanderbilt in thrilling fashion when senior Danero Thomas hit

B a s k e t b a l l


a jumper as time expired to lift MSU to a 66-65 victory. It marked the first OVC team to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament since 1989, and snapped a skid of 71-straight loses to Southeastern Conference foes (dating back to 2000-01). In the second round the Racers pushed eventual national runner-up Butler to the brink before losing 54-52. Through its 62 years, 12 teams have won or shared the league’s regular season men’s basketball title. Murray State heads the list with a Conferencerecord 21 outright or shared basketball crowns. Other past champions include former member Western Kentucky (19), Morehead State (9), Austin Peay (8), Eastern Kentucky (6), Tennessee Tech (5), former member Middle Tennessee (5), Tennessee State (2), former member East Tennessee State (2), Southeast Missouri State (1), UT Martin (who won its first in 2008-09) and former member Akron (1). Among the coaching greats in men’s basketball have been Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle, who retired with 759 victories and 10 OVC titles; John Oldham, who was a member of the very first AllOVC squad and went on to win seven OVC crowns during his coaching tenure at Tennessee Tech and Western Kentucky; Paul McBrayer, who guided Eastern Kentucky to 219 wins and three OVC crowns; and Cal Luther, who is the only person in Conference history to win men’s basketball Coach of the Year honors at two league schools - Murray State and UT Martin. Current Austin Peay head coach Dave Loos became the winningest coach in OVC history in 2009-10, netting his 319th victory and passing Luther on the all-time list. Loos enters the 2010-11 season with 331 victories. There have been an equal number of great players including Western Kentucky’s Clem Haskins, who is the only three-time OVC Player of the Year. Several players have won OVC Player of the Year honors twice: Western Kentucky’s Jim McDaniels (1969-70 and 1970-71), Murray State’s Les Taylor (1971-72, 1972-73), Jeff Martin (1987-88, 198889), Popeye Jones (1989-90, 1990-91) and Marcus Brown (1994-95, 1995-96), Austin Peay’s Otis Howard (1976-77, 1977-78), Middle Tennessee’s Jerry Beck (1980-81, 1981-82), Akron’s Joe Jakubick (1982-83, 1983-84), Tennessee State’s Carlos Rogers (1992-93, 1993-94) and UT Martin’s Lester Hudson (2007-08, 2008-09). The OVC also has the honor of being the only conference to boast the nation’s leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists all in one season. That feat was accomplished in 1991-92 by Morehead State’s Brett Roberts (28.1 ppg), Murray State’s Popeye Jones (14.4 rpg) and Tennessee Tech’s Van Usher (8.8 apg). In 2007-08, UT Martin guard Lester Hudson became the first men’s Division I player to record a quadruple-double in a game, when he registered

25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a victory over Central Baptist College. Hudson, who ranked fourth in scoring nationally as a junior, returned for his senior season in 200809 and was second nationally in scoring (behind Davidson’s Stephen Curry) at 27.5 points a contest. Hudson earned numerous honors (including OVC Player of the Year and OVC Male Athlete of the Year in each 2008 and 2009 and All-American status from several outlets) before being drafted by the Boston Celtics with the No. 58 pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. Hudson became the first draft pick for the league since 2004 and only the third pick of the last decade for the OVC. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six ScholarAthlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 192 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last two years (2008-09, 2009-10). Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior studentathlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team

Morehead State and Murray State are picked at the top of what should be a strong field of talent in this year’s Ohio Valley Conference.

Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sport-specific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.

Morehead State M

eeting the educational needs of East Kentucky while striving to constantly improve the quality of its public service, economic development and applied research programs are the primary objectives of Morehead State University. Historically, the University traces its lineage to the Morehead Normal School, which opened its doors in 1887. The private school closed in the spring of 1922 when the Kentucky General Assembly established Morehead State Normal School. The state institution accepted its first students in the fall of 1923 and graduated its first class in 1927. Name changes occurred in 1926 when “and Teachers College” was added, again in 1930 when it was shortened to Morehead State Teachers College, again in 1948 when “Teachers” was dropped and, finally, to university status in 1966. Thirteen men, starting with Frank C. Button, have served as president. Dr. Wayne D. Andrews assumed the office on Jan. 1, 2005. Academically, the University offers 76 undergraduate degree programs, including eight associate level degrees and 12 pre-professional programs in four colleges -- Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Business and Public Affairs; Education; and Science and Technology -- and 20 academic departments. There are 71 graduate degree programs plus 40 graduate level nondegree programs designed especially for professional educators. The education specialist degree in five specialty areas also is offered. A master’s degree for physician assistants, social workers and a cooperative doctoral program, all with

Fiscally, the University will operate on an annual budget of $129.2 million in 2010-11 with about $41.7 million provided by the state and $52.7 million coming from tuition and fees. Additionally, grants and contracts from external sources for research, service and academic/student support projects generate more than $15 million each year. Annual private donations to the University, through the MSU Foundation, Inc., average nearly $3 million annually. Statistically, the University has awarded more than 50,000 degrees and currently has more than 1,100 full-time employees. Enrollment for fall 2009 was more than 9,000 with the student body representing 106 Kentucky counties, 42 states and 35 foreign countries. The University attracts more than 60,000 visitors annually and its economic impact, directly and indirectly, on the Morehead area is estimated at more than $90 million yearly. Administratively, an 11-member Board of Regents governs the University with eight citizens appointed by the governor and three seats held by elected faculty, staff and student representatives.

Compliance Letter Dear Friends:

89

Morehead State University is committed to upholding the highest integrity within all procedures and practices of the athletic department. We are pleased to publish this note as a reference to understanding often confusing NCAA regulations. The NCAA defines “representatives of athletic interests” as alumni, friends and boosters of the University. All member institutions are held accountable for their representatives’ actions. One violation could jeopardize the eligibility of any or all Eagle athletic programs. As a general rule, anyone who has financially supported Eagle Athletics, been a member of any booster organization, or who has supported Eagle Athletics is considered a “representative” of Eagle Athletics. Prospective student-athletes can be defined as a student who has started classes in the ninth grade or any younger studentathlete who has received a benefit from the institution. These individuals may only be recruited by MSU coaches who have passed the NCAA Recruiting Rules Examination. While “representatives” of Eagle Athletics may speak to any of these individuals via telephone or in person, a recruiting effort must not be made. Also, no student-athlete or prospective student-athlete may receive any extra benefit outside of the support provided by the institution. For any questions regarding this description, please contact me at 606-783-5136. These are certainly not all the regulations any “representative” of Eagle Athletics must remember. However, they provide a good outline of the types of things that could endanger the eligibility of any MSU Athletics program. Again, feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thanks again for your support of Morehead State Athletics.

Sincerely,

Morehead State University has been sanctioned by the NCAA due to recruiting activities related to a booster. These sanctions include a two-year probationary period for the men’s basketball program beginning August 25, 2010, a reduction in the team scholarship limit by one in 2010-11, recruiting limitations and other penalties. The sanctions do not warrant a season ban or any forfeiture of wins. post

A Vision for the Future Morehead State’s Athletic Facility Master Plan

T

hrough administrative and athletic leadership at Morehead State, a study of athletics facilities commenced in the winter of 2006 to identify a plan that would guide decisions made by MSU Athletics well into the 21st century. Heery International, acclaimed architects and facilities planners, was selected to complete the study. All potential constituent groups were consulted throughout the process. While MSU has much to be proud of, it became quite apparent that significant work should be done to improve the athletics physical plant. The drawing you see here provides a map of what is to come. In all, over $89 million of work was identified and encompasses five new facilities and five

renovated facilities. The first scheduled work will be the renovation of the University’s Wellness Center into a state-of-the-art Athletics Academic Resource Building. For more information or if you’d like to help MSU realize these goals, please contact MSU Director of Athletics Brian Hutchinson at b.hutchinson@moreheadstate.edu or at 606-783-2089.
