2011 Missouri State Season Outlook

Bears Looking to Defy Expectations in 2011 Solid veterans joined by talented group of newcomers

The Missouri State baseball team enters 2011 with many new faces and high expectations, even if those only resonate from the home dugout. Coming off a 21-34 season and picked to finish sixth in the Missouri Valley Conference in 2011, the Bears are looking to defy outside expectations with a solid nucleus of returners and a number of newcomers with impressive high school and junior college resumes. When looking for a comparison to gauge the 2011 Bears, it’s easy to find in Missouri State’s 2007 and 2008 seasons. The 2007 squad lost 34 games and sputtered to a .276 team batting average before losing 36 of its 42 weekend pitching starts entering 2008. The next year, a Missouri State roster with several returning field players and young pitching won 40 games, finished second in the league, and produced two All-Americans, all after being chosen fourth in the preseason. The 2010 version of the Bears followed the 2007 path, losing 34 games and batting .266 before 40 of 42 weekend departed for the pros. Now a year later the Bears, again picked to finish outside the MVC’s top three, boast five returning field starters and good young pitching, and fully expect to produce a winning season for the 26th time in 29 years under Keith Guttin. “You always measure progress more from your returning guys than your newcomers, and I like the progress those five position starters have made,” Guttin said as he looked ahead to this season. “We’ll be strong defensively up the middle and that’s a good starting point for any team.”

Despite the fact that the Bears return just 13 lettermen from a year ago, a quick glance at the stats proves the returners are going to be a strength. MSU’s returning hitters have combined for 1,921 career at bats entering 2011, hitting .290 with 263 RBIs and 355 runs among them. And, while Missouri State lost a number of players with experience at the plate -1,320 career at bats to be exact - those translated to a .228 average with 184 RBIs and 208 runs.

Solid Young Pitching

The Bears have a quartet of second-year pitchers and one senior vying for starting spots in the weekend rotation, which, combined with an experienced closer, should put Missouri State in a position to win more often than not. “We’ll be good on the weekend and we’ve got a good closer in (Dan) Kickham,” Guttin said of this year’s staff. “I like that Kickham isn’t converting to a new position, he’s a guy who set the saves record at Crowder last season and has experience finishing games.” Leading that starting group is Grant Gordon (So., Salem, Mo.), who played a part in 11 of MSU’s 21 wins last season with a 4-2 record, seven saves and a 4.66 ERA. Armed with a wide array of pitches, Gordon fanned 74 hitters in 56 innings as a rookie, ranking seventh in the NCAA and first among freshmen with 11.89 Ks/9 innings. Gordon’s classmate Pierce Johnson (So., Arvada, Colo.), should also see time on the weekend and looks to follow the pattern of recent MSU greats Ross Detwiler, Tim Clubb, Buddy Baumann and Aaron Meade in translating success in the Cape Cod League to MSU. The hard-throwing right-hander went 3-1 with a 2.11 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 42.2 innings in the Cape last summer after fanning 36 in 40.2 innings for the Bears in the spring. Blake Barber (Sr., Kenner, La.) is an experienced hurler with a solid arsenal of pitches. The team leader with 23 appearances in 2010, Barber makes the move to the rotation this year after making two starts as a junior and going 2-4 with a 5.24 ERA, one save and 31 strikeouts in 34.1 innings. Clay Murphy (So., Wolf Lake, Ill.) led the staff with a 3.21 ERA as a freshman, pitching 47.2 innings Aaron Conway led MSU in home runs and stolen bases last season and going 3-2 with 43 strikeouts. and enters his senior campaign as a preseason all-MVC pick. Though not a prototypical

flamethrower, Murphy got the job done last season, winning MVC Pitcher of the Week honors April 26 and posting an 11.2 inning scoreless streak in March. Nick Petree (R-Fr., Clinton, Mo.) is a talented hurler coming off Tommy John Surgery that cost him his true freshman season. A highly decorated prep star at Clinton High, Petree went 22-6 with 278 strikeouts in 179 high school innings, and looks to continue that success at the college level. Closing for the Bears will Dan Kickham (Jr., Springfield, Mo.), who follows his twin brother Mike’s footsteps into a Bears uniform. The school record holder for saves at Crowder College, Kickham successfully closed 13 games as a sophomore in addition to going 4-3 with a 3.16 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 37 innings for a team that finished fifth at the JUCO World Series. The remainder of the pitching staff that will likely fill relief roles is a diverse group including one senior, one true freshman, two junior college transfers and a Division I transfer. Headlining that group is J.C. Casey (Sr., Springfield, Mo.), who has 24 career appearances under his belt and last season made the move to field player as well, playing all three outfield positions, first base, catcher and designated hitter. Seth Swafford (Jr., Hillsboro, Mo.) is a southpaw from Jefferson College who put up phenomenal strikeout totals at the junior college level. The JeffCo Pitcher of the Year as a true

RBIs and 75 runs scored as a sophomore, including a walk-off homer that sent IWCC to the national title game. Hardy also played in the JUCO World Series with Crowder College, concluding his sophomore season with a .403 average and 53 RBIs. Conor Smith (Fr., Ballwin, Mo.) is a powerful hitter who will see time as a backup first baseman. Smith slugged 15 homers and drove in 50 runs his final two prep seasons at Parkway West. Casey and Tyler Paxson (Sr., Toulon, Ill.) also saw time at first base last season.

Depth in the Outfield

Preseason all-conference pick Grant Gordon led all NCAA freshmen and ranked seventh overall with 11.89 Ks/9 innings.

freshman in 2008, Swafford ranked second nationally in strikeout ratio with 82 in 52.2 innings to go with a 7-1 record and 4.10 ERA. He missed 2009 due to injury and struck out 44 in 37.1 frames as a sophomore. Landon Jarrett (So., Mansfield, Mo.) is another JeffCo left-hander who was held to 2.1 innings due to injury as a freshman in 2010. Jake Powers (R-Fr., St. Charles, Mo.) joined MSU in January of 2010 after spending a semester at Illinois-Chicago. The righty has four years of eligibilty remaining following a record-setting prep career that included 94 strikeouts and a 1.87 ERA his senior season at Francis Howell High. Jonathan McCann (Fr., St. Joseph, Mo.) wraps up the staff as a 6-foot-5 prospect with plenty of potential who cut his ERA in half from his junior to senior seasons in high school, going 7-2 with a 2.79 ERA his final year.

Two of the outfield positions are owned by returning starters and a heated competition among four players for right field duties continued through preseason practices. Aaron Conway (Sr., Edwardsville, Ill.) and Keenen Maddox (So., Ballwin, Mo.) will patrol center and left fields, respectively, after each produced solid 2010 seasons. Conway enters his senior year as a preseason all-conference pick and currently ranks sixth in school history with 50 career steals and 11th with 11 triples. The speedster has started 109 consecutive games in center field and became the sixth player in MSU history to lead the team in homers (7) and steals (24) as a junior. Maddox ranked third on the team with a .281 average as a rookie, adding five homers and 25 RBIs, including a memorable walk-off home run to defeat Missouri at home. Maddox added 19 extra-base hits and started 46 games in left field. Two freshmen and two junior college players will compete for playing time in right field, while all four will give the Bears depth across the board and solid bats for the DH role as well.

Spiker Helms (Jr., Washington, Mo.) played infield at Longview College and will use his strength, athleticism and competitiveness to transition to outfield this year. He hit .361 last season with 47 RBIs as an all-Region 16 choice. Derek Mattea (Jr., Collinsville, Ill.) is a big outfielder at 6-3 with speed and power, evidenced by eight homers, nine triples and 12 steals as part of a sophomore season when he hit .374 and drove in 53 runs for John A. Logan College. Patrick Drake (Fr., Webb City, Mo.) is a familiar name to Bears baseball fans who has the skills to play the infield or the outfield. The younger brother of 2009 MVC Player of the Year Brayden Drake, Patrick enjoyed an illustrious prep career at Webb City High not only on the diamond but as a quarterback on the gridiron and guard on the hardwood. Trey Massenberg (Fr., St. Louis, Mo.) is the speediest of the right field candidates and comes from Lutheran North High, where he set school records for runs (42), extra-base hits (25) and walks (24), while hitting .410 with 10 homers and 31 RBIs during his senior season.

Experience on the Infield

Four juniors will start on the infield, led by alleverything second baseman Kevin Medrano (Jr., Lee’s Summit, Mo.). Medrano hit .410 for the Bears last season to earn first-team all-Valley honors for a second time, came within one of the MSU hitting streak record at 29 games and ranked first or second on the team in nearly every offensive category. Medrano’s double-play partner for the third year in a row is Travis McComack (Jr., De Soto, Mo.), a talented defender who occupied the leadoff spot in 51 of 55 games last season, batting .274 with 35 runs scored and ranking fifth in the MVC with 161 assists. Brent Seifert (Jr., Cameron, Mo.) and Kyle Hardy (Jr., Miami, Fla.) are interchangeable parts at the corner infield positions who each enjoyed great success at the junior college level. A first-team all-American for 2010 JUCO national champion Iowa Western Community College, Seifert batted .485 with 18 homers, 92

Luke Voit finished one shy of the team RBI lead last season despite playing in only 31 games due to injury

Veterans Behind the Plate

Travis McComack returns for his third season as Missouri State’s starting shortstop.

Luke Voit (So., Wildwood, Mo.) enters 2011 as MSU’s No. 1 backstop following a very productive but injury-shortened freshman campaign. Voit ranked second on the team with 29 RBIs last season in spite of missing 21 games late in the year because of a thumb injury. He batted .272 and slugged .482, starting 14 games at catcher and 13 at first base. Veteran Brett Marshall (Jr., Springfield, Mo.) will back up Voit and is solid defensive player with a very strong arm behind the plate. He started 36 games at catcher as a sophomore and closed the season strong with a 4-for-8 showing at the MVC Tournament. Paxson and Casey caught occasionally last season, and Smith is on the depth chart as well. 2011 Guide

DH a Strength

Brock Chaffin (Jr., Stoutland, Mo.) is the leading candidate to serve as the Bears’ designated hitter this season. The powerful left-handed hitter slugged 15 homers and 88 RBIs as a first-team all-American and Region 16 Player of the Year at Longview College in 2010. Chaffin’s .473 batting average and low strikeout rate as a sophomore make him a threat against both right-and left-handed pitchers, giving the Bears a stable bat in the middle of the lineup. Paxson will likely see time against southpaws after hitting .263 with three homers and 23 RBIs as a junior, while Barrett Noirfalise (So., Joplin, Mo.), who hit .245 in 54 at bats last year, and Casey are returners who made starts at DH in 2010. Smith is also an option in addition to backing up at first base and behind the plate, as well as any of the players competing for the starting job in right field.

The 2011 Schedule

The 2011 schedule features 24 home dates, 31 games away from Springfield and 14 contests against teams that qualified for the 2010 NCAA Tournament. “I like that we play two tournaments early as opposed to series,” Guttin said of a schedule that sees the Bears play nine different opponents in their first nine games. “We go back to Southern

Miss this year, have some very good non-conference games at home, and The Valley has some good competition as always.” The MVC schedule remains at 21 games following UNI’s departure from the league in 2009, leaving 34 nonconference contests. NCAA teams from 2010 on the MSU schedule are Arkansas, Kansas State, Southern Miss, Oral Roberts, Illinois State and Saint Louis. The Missouri Valley Conference Baseball Championship will be held May 24-28 in Omaha, Neb. The league meet will take place at TD Ameritrade Park three weeks before the College World Series moves to the venue for the first time. All eight league schools will Keenen Maddox (seen here celebrating his walk-off homer participate in two four-team, double- against Missouri), hit .281 last season with 25 RBIs elimination pools.

NCAA Baseball Championship in 65th Year The 65th annual NCAA Division I Baseball Championship will conclude with the NCAA College World Series. The event is held in Omaha, Neb., for the 62nd time in its history, and makes the move to downtown this season at the brand new TD Ameritrade Park. For the 13th year, the tournament will continue with a highly-successful new format which was implemented in 1999. Another significant change to the format in 2003 occurred in the World Series’ final round. The championship round is now a best-of-three showdown involving the winners of each bracket in the CWS field. The 64-team tournament field will again include 30 conferences whose champions (determined either by a league tournament or regular season play) automatically qualify for NCAA play, with the other 34 slots to be filled on an at-large basis. A total of 292 schools sponsored Division I baseball in the NCAA in 2010. Following the conclusion of conference tournament play the last weekend in May, the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee will select and announce its 64-team field for the tourney. The teams will go into 16 double-elimination regionals of four teams each, with the regionals to be held June 3-6 either at campus or neutral sites. The NCAA will announce the 64-team field May 30. The 16 regional winners will advance to

best-of-three Super Regionals at eight campus sites the weekend of June 10-13, with those sites to be announced June 7. The Super Regional winners will advance to the 65th College World Series, held at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, June 18-29. Missouri Valley Conference member Creighton University is the College World Series host.The eight teams in the CWS are divided into two doubleelimination pools of four schools each. Pool winners meet in the new best-of-three championship June 27-29. All CWS games are nationally televised on ESPN. Once the field of 64 teams is determined, the committee will select 16 teams each to receive regional seeds one, two, three and four. From the 16 No. 1 seeds, the committee will select the top eight national seeds and rank them, one through eight. The eight national seeds will be placed in separate regionals so they cannot meet before the first round of the College World Series, and the eight remaining No.1 regional seeds will be placed geographically in the 64-team bracket for potential Super Regional meetings with the eight national seeds. Teams from the same conference will not go into the same regional and teams from the same conference who are number one regional seeds cannot meet in the Super Regionals. The 64-team field will not be reseeded once the initial bracket is announced May 30.

Missouri State University

Thirteen schools have represented the MVC in the NCAA Division I championship, including all nine current MVC baseball schools. Wichita State is the leader, having made 27 NCAA appearances since 1980, with six trips to the College World Series and an overall tourney record of 77-54. The Shockers won the NCAA championship in 1989 and were College World Series runners-up in 1991 and 1993. Missouri State was the only Valley team until WSU in 2007 to advance to the Super Regionals and the only league school to advance to the CWS under the current 64-team format. Southern Illinois is 39-30 in 14 NCAA visits, Indiana State is 8-14 in seven, Bradley is 3-12 in six, Creighton is 12-16 in eight, Missouri State is 13-15 in seven, Evansville is 5-6 in three, and Illinois State is 2-6 in three. Some NCAA appearances by current MVC members were made prior to their joining the conference. Previous league members representing the MVC in NCAA play were UNI, Tulsa, Saint Louis, Oklahoma State, Houston and Cincinnati. The MVC representative to the NCAA tournament will be the champion of the Valley tournament, May 24-28, in Wichita, Kan. All eight members of the league will participate in the postseason tournament this season. A pair of four-team, double-elimination pools will be formed, with the winners of each pool to meet in the winner-take-all championship game.

Keith Guttin, Head Baseball Coach

Beginning his 29th year of guiding the Missouri State baseball program, head coach Keith Guttin continues to build the Bears into one of the top programs, not just in the Missouri Valley Conference or Midwest, but in NCAA Division I.   Under Guttin, the Bears are 959-607 (an average of 34 wins and 22 losses per season) and have won 61 percent of their games. Guttin has had eight 40-win seasons. Missouri State returned to the top of The Valley in 2009, finishing the league schedule with a 17-5 record after sweeping Creighton and Indiana State in the final two weeks of the season. Both CU and ISU entered its series with MSU atop the MVC standings. MSU’s stellar 2009 season followed a 2008 campaign when the team went 40-17 overall, earning Guttin his 10th conference coach of the year honor. In 2007, Ross Detwiler was selected sixth overall in the MLB Draft, the highest pick in school history, and the Bears came within a win of the NCAA Tournament in 2006 before falling in the MVC Tournament finals. In 2003, MSU advanced to its first-ever NCAA Division I College World Series to cap a season in which the Bears won the MVC regular season title for the second time in three seasons. The Bears’ NCAA Tournament

trip was the second straight NCAA trip and the sixth appearance in the past nine years. That year, Guttin garnered the American Baseball Coaches Association Midwest Region Coach of the Year award and his second MVC Coach of the Year honor in three seasons. It was his third conference honor since the Bears joined the Valley and it was Guttin’s ninth conference Coach of the Year recognition in 23 years as a head coach. In 2002, the Bears posted their first 40-win season since 1991 and won the secondmost games in school history and the most since winning a school record 47 games in 1987. Missouri State advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in eight years but the first time since 1999. In 2001, Guttin led the Bears to their firstever MVC regular season championship and, in the process, dethroned perennial league powerhouse Wichita State. The Shockers had previously won outright or shared the Valley regular season crown in the previous 14 years, but the Bears posted a 22-10 record in 2001 and beat WSU by one game in the final league standings. While the accomplishments of Guttin’s teams on the field speak volumes about the success of his program, another dream came true in April 2004 when the Bears opened a sparkling 8,000-seat stadium just four blocks north of the Missouri State campus. The Bears finished the year ninth among NCAA Division I teams in attendance and that was playing only a portion

of their home schedule at Hammons Field.   It’s just a coincidence that the crown jewel of the Missouri State baseball program came one year after the Bears exploded onto the national college baseball radar in the College World Series. But both events show the growth of college baseball in the Ozarks and the amount of community and administrative support the program had received in the last several years. Throughout those years, Guttin has been the face of Missouri State baseball. A part of the MSU baseball program as a player, assistant coach and head coach for 32 of the program’s 46 years, Guttin took the helm of Bears baseball at the start of the 1983 season, coinciding with the move of Missouri State athletics to Division I status. He inherited the reins of the program from its only previous head baseball coach, former Missouri State Director of Athletics Bill Rowe. Guttin stretched the str ing of MSU consecutive winning seasons to 32 in a row; easily the longest of any Missouri State athletics team. The Bears have finished in the top half of the conference race every year but three in the last 35 seasons. Missouri State slipped to 10-11 in 1992, 1517 in 2000, 10-14 in 2005 and 7-17 in 2007 in the Bears’ only years in the past 35 seasons without a winning league record. The Bears have finished lower than third in the league standings just five times since Guttin took over. Guttin directed Missouri State to six straight league titles in Mid-Continent play from 1984

through 1989. He gave MSU its first two Valley postseason tournament championships in 1996 and 1997. He was voted the MVC Coach of the Year in 1993, 2001, 2003 and 2008 and was selected the American Baseball Coaches Association Division I Midwest Region Coach of the Year in 1997 and again in 2003.   Missouri State ran through MCC regular season and tourney play annually from 1983 through 1989. Missouri State faltered only once, finishing as tourney runner-up in 1990, its final MCC season before moving to the Valley. Guttin was named MCC Coach of the Year each season from 1984 through 1989.   In 1986, Missouri State had its best record ever, going 47-14. In 1987, the 38-14 Bears got their first NCAA Division I tourney bid, playing in the West II Regional in Tempe, Ariz. In 1988, the 41-17 Bears became the first team to go through regular season MCC play undefeated, and in 1989 went 41-10 for the third best MSU Coaching Milestones

winning percentage and third fewest losses of any Division I team.   The 1990 Bears were 42-15 and again perfect in regular season league play. Missouri State capped the year with Guttin’s 300th win and left the Mid-Continent with the best overall, conference and league tourney marks. In 1991, Missouri State joined the Valley, reaching the 40-win plateau and finishing fourth in its first Valley campaign. In 1993, the Bears finished second as Guttin was named MVC Coach of the Year.   The 1995 Bruins were second in the MVC Tournament and added an NCAA visit, playing in the West Regional in Fresno, Calif. In 1996, Missouri State won its first MVC tourney, capped by Guttin’s 500th career win, an 8-7 victory over top-ranked Wichita State in the winner’s bracket final. Missouri State won its first NCAA Division I tourney games, beating Long Beach State and UCLA to finish third in the Central I Regional in Austin, Texas.   The 1997 Bears repeated the MVC crown and knocked off Texas Tech and Nevada on the

way to a runner-up finish in the NCAA Central Regional in Lubbock, Texas. Missouri State was at the Fayetteville regional in 1999, finishing second with wins over Clemson and Arkansas.   Guttin returned to Missouri State in 1982 after a year at Rend Lake College where he served as assistant coach to Kirk Champion as RLC claimed an Illinois juco sectional crown. Guttin was a Missouri State assistant under Rowe from 1979 to 1981, as Missouri State won its last MIAA title and made two NCAA appearances.   Guttin had two notable seasons as the Missouri State second baseman, coming from Mineral Area College. He earned MIAA all-conference honorable mention in 1977 as the Bears made their first NCAA Division II tournament appearance in seven years.   A University City native, Guttin finished his undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1978, and earned his master’s degree in 1984 at Truman State. He and his wife, Marianne, have three daughters; Lauren, Lindsey and Samantha.

Brent Thomas 20

Paul Evans 28

29th season Missouri State ’82

23rd season Southern Illinois ’81

A veteran assistant coach who’s been at Missouri State alongside Bears’ head coach Keith Guttin since Guttin took over the baseball reins in 1983, Brent Thomas is one of the senior assistants in the Missouri Valley Conference as he enters his 29th year on the MSU staff. Thomas has been the Bears’ first base coach for six Mid-Continent Conference championship years, MVC titles in 1996, 1997, 2001, 2003 and 2009, and all seven of the Bears’ trips to the NCAA tournament. In addition to coaching, Thomas’s duties include academic evaluation of players and game administration, as well as working with hitters and outfielders. Thomas stayed with the program after his days as a Bear outfielder in 1981 and 1982. He came to MSU after earning MVP honors twice at Crowder College in Neosho, Mo. A native of Marshfield, Mo., Thomas played for the Bears’ unbeaten MIAA Southern Division champs in 1981 and the 1982 team which closed the Bears’ Division II days with a regional title and a trip to the NCAA World Series in Riverside, Calif. Thomas hit .380 for the 32-12 MSU team in 1981 as the Bears came within a game of winning the MIAA crown and advancing to NCAA play. He hit .352 his senior year as Missouri State was 3114 and won its final Division II regional, competing as an independent. Thomas was a four-year baseball starter at Marshfield and also played football and basketball. He was a four-year all-conference pick in baseball and two-time all-leaguer in football. Coach Thomas also coached the Marshfield American Legion team two summers. He and his wife, Debbie, have a son, Evan, and a daughter, Allie.

Paul Evans moves into his 23rdd season with the Bears, having come to Missouri State as pitching coach in 1989 after three years as head coach at Rend Lake College. Evans also serves as the recruiting coordinator for the baseball Bears. Over the past five seasons, Evans has coached the two highest draft picks in MSU history, with Brett Sinkbeil going 19th overall in 2006 and Ross Detwiler as the sixth overall pick in 2007. Detwiler made his major league debut with the Washington Nationals on Sept. 7, 2007, a mere 108 days after his final outing in a Bears’ uniform. In fact, Evans has coached three first round pitchers in the last 10 seasons, including John Rheinecker as the 37th overall pick in 2001. A total of 47 hurlers have signed pro contracts under Evans’ tutelage, with at least one in each of his 23 seasons and eight advancing to the major leagues. Additionally, Evans has seen three Bears selected to pitch for Team USA: Jarrod Mays (1995), Bob Zimmermann (2001 and 2002) and Detwiler (2006). In 2001, the Bears led the MVC and were 17th in the country with a 3.63 earned run average. Rheinecker became the highest draft pick in MSU history in June of 2001 and Zimmermann led the USA National Team in saves and appearances. In 1990, Evans coached the staff to a school record ERA of 2.91 which was sixth in Division I. Evans guided Rend Lake to a 201-95 mark in three years which included two Illinois juco sectional titles. Rend Lake missed the 1986 juco World Series by one game. A native of Granite City, Ill., Evans played football and baseball at South High School. He pitched his American Legion teams to back-toback state runner-up finishes and had a 50-8 combined career record in high school and American Legion. He gained Illinois all-state honors in baseball while in high school and in 2000, he was inducted in the Granite City Sports Hall of Fame.   Evans was 18-7 at Southern Illinois before graduating from SIU in 1981. His 0.84 ERA as a sophomore was third in NCAA Division I and he tossed a no-hitter against SIU-Edwardsville.   Evans was head coach at Shawnee Junior College and assisted at RLC two years before becoming head coach. A Central Illinois Collegiate League and Cape Cod League hurler, he returned to Cape Cod in 1988 as pitching coach at Yarmouth-Dennis.   Evans has three children, Kyle, Kameron and Kassidy.

He was introduced to the campus and Springfield community as the school’s 10th president on May 14, following a nationwide search. Cofer came to Springfield after serving as president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe since 2002. He replaced Dr. Michael T. Nietzel, who had been MSU’s president since July 2005. Additionally, Cofer will be a tenured professor in MSU’s College of Business Administration. “I am deeply honored by the Board’s decision and its confidence in me,” Cofer said on May 14. “I have been a fan of Missouri State University for many years and I look forward to continuing the good work that has been done here. Working with the faculty, staff, students, community, governmental leaders and all other constituent groups, I think we can create and achieve a shared vision for the university.” Cofer earned a reputation as the leader of an “extraordinary renaissance” at the University of Louisiana at Monroe over his eight years as president. When he and his wife, Deborah, arrived at ULM in 2002, they immediately began the “Reclaiming Our Campus” campaign, which involved more than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, community leaders, and area citizens who cleaned, planted flowers and repainted the campus. Shortly thereafter, Cofer developed an ambitious visionary plan that included more than $80 million in new construction and renovations on campus. Students, whose academic achievements continue to proliferate every year, now enjoy the newest, up-to-date residence halls, state-of-the-art “smart classrooms,” a completely-renovated Student Union Building and multiple campus security improvements. In 2007, students rated ULM higher than ever before – breaking a record for student satisfaction at the institution and surpassing student satisfaction at the national level. With the help of engaged faculty, ULM also patterned its mathematics and English course redesigns after the National Center for Academic Transformation’s Roadmap to Redesign philosophy, utilizing sound methodology, student-centered learning, clear assessment criteria and effective technology incorporation in 2007. To further encourage student success, ULM implemented living-learning communities, peer and faculty mentoring programs, extensive undergraduate research initiatives and advanced technological modalities. Cognizant of adult learners and today’s busy student, Cofer advocated “anytime, anywhere, anyplace instruction,” resulting in additional online courses and degree programs at ULM. Cofer earned his Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in December 1998. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1971 and his MBA in 1975, both from Mississippi State University. Prior to becoming president of the University of Louisiana at Monroe in March of 2002, Cofer served as vice president for finance and administration for the University of Missouri System from 1998-2002. Prior to that, he was vice president for finance and administration for the University of Arkansas System from 1995-98; Eisenhower Fellow in Budapest, Hungary, in 1995-96; and vice chancellor for fiscal affairs and treasurer of the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia from 1991-95. He also has held positions in finance and administration with the Mississippi Power and Light Company; Murray State University; the State of Mississippi; and the Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning. Cofer and his wife, Deborah, have two children and two grandchildren.

MOATS Director of Athletics Second Year at Missouri State

Missouri State University’s search for its new director of athletics concluded May 28, 2009, with the introduction of Kyle Moats as the University’s 10th A.D. Moats came to the University after serving as associate athletics director for national marketing at the University of Louisville since 2005.  Moats began his duties at Missouri State in July 2009, replacing Bill Rowe, who retired after spending 27 years as Missouri State’s top athletics administrator and more than a half century at the university as a student, coach and administrator.  In a busy first year on the job, Moats wasted little time in laying groundwork for the future of Missouri State Athletics. From day one he emphasized the importance of fostering a strategic vision in the current landscape of intercollegiate athletics by involving all corners of the campus community in developoing a long-range plan for the MSU Athletics. Moats played a key role in Missouri State’s new partnership with Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM), announced in February 2010. The agreement will result in the outsourcing of the departments’ marketing and corporate sales operations while maximizing revenue potential for MSU Athletics. Additionally, Moats was instrumental in MSU’s negotiations for a new television contract this past summer.  Prior to his arrival in Springfield, Moats spent four years as associate athletics director for national marketing at Louisville. In that capacity, he coordinated the Cardinals’ efforts in national awareness, marketing, branding and group ticket sales. He also worked closely with Nelligan, which manages the exclusive marketing rights for Cardinal Athletics. Moats oversaw the Louisville band and spirit squads as the liaison with student government and student spirit groups.  Prior to joining the Louisville staff, Moats served as senior associate athletic director for two years at Marquette University, where oversaw the Golden Eagles’ Blue and Gold Fund, media relations, ticket operations, special events, licensing, radio, television, marketing and promotions and sponsorships with NSM.  He also worked 14 years in the University of Kentucky athletics department, including his last three there as associate athletics director for marketing (2000-02).  Moats joined the UK staff as a graduate assistant in the athletics office in 1989, and in 1991 was promoted to coordinator of promotions and special events. He became the Wildcats’ director of marketing, promotions and licensing in 1993 before being named assistant athletics director for marketing in 1996. He served as tournament manager for the 1993 NCAA Golf Championships and the 1996 and 1998 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament events in Lexington.  A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. While at SIUE, Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and was a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-1988. He earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of Kentucky in 2001.  Moats and his wife, Leeann, have two children, Kirk and Lauren. Bears Baseball

2010 Bears Season Review

Bears Finish 2010 Campaign With 21-34 Record Missouri State’s 21-34 record at the end of the 2010 baseball season was hard to explain. The Bears had talent on the roster - all three weekend starters were off the board after 24 rounds of the MLB Draft - and a solid nucleus of skilled field players, but the cards fell against the Bears far too often late in games and the injury bug struck a key bat just when the offense was clicking, sending Missouri State to just its fourth losing season in the last 45 years.

STRANGE STATS FOR THE BEARS The numbers didn’t always add up to a team finishing 13 games under .500 for the Bears in 2010. Missouri State had more extra-base hits than the opposition on the year and loaded the bases 21 more times, 79 in all. Over the final 52 games, the pitching staff had a better ERA than the opposition, yet the Bears were 21-31 over that span. MSU pitchers ranked 13th nationally with 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings. The Bears went 7-13 in games when the trailing team brought the winning run to the plate in its final at bat, including five walk-off losses. SLOW START The Bears faced a tall task to open the season, traveling to sixth-ranked Georgia Tech and practicing outside for the first time the morning of the opener in Atlanta. Aaron Meade and Grant Gordon kept the Bears close in the opening 4-0 loss, but MSU left Georgia with an 0-3 record after being outscored 37-3 in the series. Missouri State headed to Texas-Arlington the next weekend, combining with the Mavericks for an NCAA record 43 strikeouts in the series opener. UTA no-hit the Bears for 26 outs, but Meade provided six scoreless innings in the start and Gordon added seven more to take the scoreless game into the 14th. The Mavericks landed a walk-off single for the win, and then popped a three-run walk-off homer the next day for a 9-6 victory to send the Bears to 0-5. The Bears earned their first victory the next day, scoring five two-out runs in the fourth and holding on for a 5-4 victory before heading to Hammons Field for a four-game set with North Dakota State. The Bison took a 6-3 win in the first game of the series as the Bears stranded 16 runners in all and a man on second base in every inning, but Missouri State rebounded to win the next three games and move to 4-6. Pat Doyle tossed a complete-game three-hitter in game two as the Bears won 6-1, and Mike Kickham fanned 10 over seven innings the next game in a 15-2 rout. Christian Overstreet drove in four and swatted a three-run bomb in the eighth inning of the finale to secure a 6-2 MSU victory. The winning streak would be short-lived as Missouri State lost seven of its next eight games to fall to 5-13 entering a homestand in late March. Missouri State opened a four-game road trip March 10 at Southeast Missouri State, climbing back for an 11-11 tie behind Aaron Conway’s ninth-inning grand slam, only to see the Redhawks hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the frame for a 12-11 win. From there, the Bears headed to Southern Mississippi for a three-game set with a Golden Eagles

squad that played in the College World Series the previous season. Meade gave the Bears 7.2 innings in the Friday game, staking the team to a 3-1 lead in the ninth inning when USM scored three runs to hand the Bears another walk-off loss by a 4-3 final. MSU gave up four in the first on Saturday in a 6-0 loss, and led 4-0 in the fifth in the Sunday contest before the flood gates opened and Southern Miss scored 13 runs in its final four trips to the plate in a 13-4 game. Missouri State returned home and split midweek contests with Arkansas State March 16 and 17. Brett Marshall hit the game-winning single the eighth inning and Pierce Johnson provided six innings of two-hit ball in a 2-1 win. The next day, MSU was hitless through six innings, and Clay Murphy allowed a run over six innings to keep the Bears in it. Missouri State came within one from a 5-0 deficit, but left the bases loaded in the ninth in a 5-4 setback. A pair of 8-2 losses to Wright State and Oklahoma State followed on March 19 in Stillwater, and snow cancelled the rest of the weekend with the Bears sitting at 5-13 and looking forward to a five-game homestand.

Conway RBIs. Doyle fanned nine in 6.1 innings the next day in a 5-1 win, and the teams played the finale in Springfield on Sunday with Missouri State slamming six home runs in a 15-1 shellacking. Missouri State won its fourth in a row three days later, using 11 strikeouts from Murphy and a three-run eighth inning to beat Oklahoma State, 7-5. The win was costly, however, as Voit injured his thumb sliding into a base in the eighth inning prior to scoring the tying run, sidelining him until the MVC Tournament. He ranked sixth in the MVC in RBIs at the time of the injury.

STRUGGLE IN SEASON’S SECOND HALF Without Voit, the Bears sputtered to a 7-0 loss in the April 9 series opener at Bradley, and were let down by the defense the next day in allowing four unearned runs in a 6-4 loss. In a wild finale Sunday, each team scored three runs in the ninth, with Bradley handing Missouri State its fifth walk-off defeat of the season for a 9-8 score and series sweep. Kansas completed the season sweep of the Bears with a 6-4 win April 13, but Missouri State responded to that loss by winning five of six before closing the regular season with a 3-11 record over the last 14 games. Keenen Maddox stole the show with a walkoff homer to beat Missouri April 14, his second round-tripper of the game as the Bears won 5-4 with Kickham striking out 11 Tigers. The Bears had the following weekend off and returned to action April 20 at Saint Louis, jumping ahead of the Billikens 8-0 after two innings and holding on to win 9-6. MSU scored five in the eighth inning the next night to beat SIU Edwardsville 5-4 at home, and, after losing 8-2 to Creighton in the Valley series opener, swept the Bluejays in an exciting Sunday doubleheader. Doyle fanned 10 and allowed an earned run over seven innings in game one, and Tyler Paxson put the Bears up with a three-run shot in the first for a 5-4 win. Overstreet ended game two with a walkoff home run, and Murphy tossed 4.2 innings of relief for his second win of the week, earning MVC

OFFENSE HEATS UP The Bears played their best ball of the season over the next 10 contests, going 7-3 with a .343 team batting average while putting up 7.7 runs per game. Kevin Medrano hit .590 and Luke Voit had 18 RBIs, but it was Voit’s injury at the end of the 10-game stretch that kept the freshman out of the lineup for six weeks and was a key to the Bears’ offensive struggles the rest of the season. The Bears started the 10-game stretch with two midweek wins over Central Arkansas at Hammons Field. On March 23, Travis McComack reached base six times and Voit went 4-for-5 with five RBIs in a 14-5 MSU win. Murphy struck out eight in six innings the next day in a 4-2 victory. MSU opened Missouri Valley Conference play two days later with a 7-4 win against Evansville, using 6.2 innings from Meade and a three-run homer in the fourth from Overstreet to start the league season on a positive note. The Purple Aces overcame Voit’s three-run homer in the first inning of Saturday’s game with three in the seventh to win 6-4, and the Bears left seven men in scoring position Sunday in a 3-2 loss despite Kickham tossing a complete game. Missouri State closed the month of March at Kansas, rallying from a 6-0 deficit behind Medrano’s 4-for-5 day before falling 7-6. The Bears started April with a four-game winning streak against Oklahoma schools, scoring 39 runs to improve to 12-16 overall.

MVC TOURNAMENT Yet another new format greeted the MVC’s eight teams at the league meet in Wichita in late May, with all league members qualifying after UNI’s departure dropped the MVC to eight teams for 2010. The Bears benefitted, going as the No. 8 seed, and tested top-seeded Wichita State, holding a 1-0 lead in the fifth behind a Medrano solo homer before WSU scored six in the next two frames to grab a 6-2 win. Missouri State rebounded the next day, tying an MVC Tournament record with 11 runs in the sixth inning for a 14-10 victory over Southern Illinois. Evansville ended MSU’s season on May 27, and only a three-hour rain delay could postpone the inevitable in a 7-2 loss.

Aaron Meade led the Bears with a 4.18 ERA and finished his Missouri State career fifth in school history with 226 strikeouts

Pitcher of the Week honors after going 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in nine innings. After that, Missouri State lost nine of its next 10 contests, often in frustrating fashion. The Bears traveled to No. 7 Arkansas on April 28, dropping a 5-4 decision to the Hogs, then succumbed to an 11-strikeout complete game at the hands of Indiana State’s Jacob Petricka in an 8-1 loss to the Sycamores in Terre Haute. Missouri State stranded 15 runners the next day and went 1-for-21 with men in scoring position for a 10-3 loss to the Sycamores, and salvaged the final game of the series Sunday with eight innings of three-hit ball from Meade in a 5-3 win. Mizzou earned a season split with the Bears on May 4 in Columbia, breaking a 6-all tie with three runs in the sixth, before MVC champion Illinois State came to Springfield and swept the Bears the next weekend. On May 7, the Redbirds used a pair of eighthinning runs to win 7-5 despite Kickham logging 14 strikeouts. Then on Saturday, the Bears had a 7-1 lead in the fourth before yielding six unearned runs in that inning for a 7-7 tie, and ISU eventually walked away with an 11-9 victory. On Sunday, the Redbirds hit a three-run homer in the third and kept the MSU offense in check for a 7-1 win. The losing streak continued May 14 at Wichita State as WSU’s Jordan Cooper fanned 14 in a complete-game shutout, outdueling Kickham’s 10-strikeout complete game. The Bears were held scoreless again the next day and Medrano’s hitting streak ended at 29 games in an 8-0 loss, but Missouri State left Wichita with a 10-3 Sunday victory, using three RBIs each from Curt Courtwright and Paxson and 7.1 innings of one-run ball from Doyle. The regular season concluded in Springfield the following week with Southern Illinois capturing a series win at Hammons Field. The Salukis scored in all but two innings of their 13-2 series-opening win, and hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to win the second game 6-5 after the Bears fought back from a 5-0 deficit. In the regular season finale, Conway hit a gamewinning single in the 10th inning to send the Bears into the MVC Tournament with a 6-5 win.

AWARDS AND HONORS Kevin Medrano repeated on the MVC First Team, this year as a utility player, and was MSU’s lone first-team representative. Conway and Meade were honorable mention selections following preseason all-conference nods. The Bears did earn six weekly honors from the league, including Gordon (Pitcher, March 1), Kickham (Pitcher, March 8), Overstreet (Player, March 8), Voit (Player, March 29), Medrano (Player, April 5) and Murphy (Pitcher, April 26). Medrano, Overstreet and Voit each earned CollegeBaseballInsider.com Central Region Player of the Week laurels following their respective MVC weekly award wins. Academically, Kickham was an MVC ScholarAthlete honorable mention selection. Medrano was voted by his teammates as the team’s A.E. “Ted” Willis Most Valuable Player after the season, while Kickham was the Dave Dickensheet Pitcher of the Year and Gordon the team’s Danny Cook Rookie of the Year. CHANGES TO THE RECORD BOOKS Meade made his way on to three Missouri State career lists and was just one of several players to make their mark on the record book. Meade finished his MSU career third in starts (41), fifth in strikeouts (226) and 10th in innings pitched (224.1). Doyle closed his career ranked second in school history with 73 appearances, while his 94.2 innings in 2010 placed him eighth for a single season. Kickham’s 103 strikeouts and 96.0 innings put him fifth and sixth, respectively, for a single season, while Gordon and Blake Barber tied for fifth in season appearances with 23 apiece. Gordon’s seven saves also placed him fourth for a season and 11 for his career after just one season. Conway and Medrano led the way offensively, as Conway’s 24 steals ranked fifth for a season and moved him into sixth on the career list with 50 thefts. He also tripled twice in 2010 to give him 11 for his career, moving up to 11th on that list. Medrano’s 86 hits ranked 10th for a single season, while 62 singles tied for the No. 5 total at MSU. WITH THE NEXT SELECTION... Missouri State saw three players from the 2010 roster drafted, and

a total of seven were taken when four Bears baseball recruits were factored in. Kickham went off the draft board first, going to San Francisco in the sixth round as the 198th overall pick. The draft-eligible sophomore weighed his options to within days of the signing deadline before deciding to take the professional route. Meade came next, going to the Los Angeles Angels with the 324th overall pick in the 10th round. A year after turning down a contract from the New York Yankees as an eligible sophomore, Meade took advantage of moving up 18 rounds and quickly signed and began his pro career in Utah. Doyle followed in the 24th round as the 727th overall pick, heading off to begin in pro career in the Cincinnati Reds farm system. STAT LEADERS Medrano led the Bears in nearly every offensive category, batting .410 with 86 hits and 44 runs scored, and was the only player to hit above .300. Conway paced the club with seven homers and 24 steals, good for fifth in school history. Overstreet grabbed the RBI lead with 30 along with a team-high 31 walks, and Voit had 29 RBIs in just 31 games. On the mound, Doyle led with five wins and tied Meade with a 4.18 ERA for tops on the staff. Doyle’s 94.2 innings went for eighth in school history, while Kickham’s 96.0 frames ranked sixth and his team-best 103 strikeouts ranked fifth. Barber and Gordon tied with 23 appearances to lead the way, tying for fifth in MSU history in the process, and Gordon logged seven saves to go with his 74 strikeouts. Conway was perfect in the field in 114 chances, while McComack led with 162 assists from shortstop.

COACH KEITH GUTTIN Missouri State head coach Keith Guttin (MissouriSt. Louis, 1978) completed his 28th season with a career record of 959-607 (.612).

Conference Tournament Results Conference Championship Tournaments   MSU was a member of the Missouri Intercollegiate Athletic Association from when the MIAA added baseball in 1966 until MSU left the league in 1981. MIAA baseball was played in divisions from 1966 to 1970, and again starting in 1979, with MSU competing in the Southern Division.

Missouri State NCAA Tournament Results   After 19 years in the NCAA Division II ranks which included seven appearances in the Division II tournament and four trips to the Division II World Series, MSU moved to Division I in 1983.   MSU hosted the first four D-II World Series at Meador Park. The Bears played in two of those events, finishing as the national runner-up in 1969 and third in 1970. MSU won regional tournament titles and went to the Division II World Series in 1978 in Springfield, Ill., and in 1982 at Riverside, Calif.   In 1987, the Bears made their first appearance in the NCAA Division I tournament at Tempe, Ariz., and in 2003 advanced to the Division I College World Series for the first time in school history.   MSU had three straight NCAA visits in 1995, 1996 and 1997, competing in regionals at Fresno, Calif., Austin, Texas and Lubbock, Texas. After a one-year absence from postseason play, MSU returned to NCAA play in the 1999 Fayetteville (Ark.) Regional.   In 2002, MSU made the regional tournament with a trip to Lincoln, Neb. The Bears returned to Lincoln in 2003 and won the regional before sweeping the Columbus Super Regional over Ohio State.   The Bears were winless in their 1987 and 1995 NCAA outings but claimed two wins and played on the final day in each of the four subsequent regionals, finishing third in regional play in 1996 and second in the 1997, 1999 and 2002 regional fields.

#22 Bill Rowe On Saturday, May 8, 2004, former head baseball coach and director of athletics Bill Rowe became the first person in the 46-year history of the MSU baseball program to have his number retired. Rowe guided the baseball Bears as head coach for 19 years from the start of the program in 1964 through its final season in NCAA Division II in 1982. He led the Bears to a 394230-1 record and four Division II College World Series appearances. Under Rowe, the Bears finished as national runners-up in 1969 and finished third nationally in 1970 (just the sixth and seventh years of the program). As Athletic Director, Rowe guided the Bears from Division II to Division I and saw the Bears change leagues from the MIAA and Mid-Continent Conferences to a current membership in the Missouri Valley Conference. The retirement ceremony for Rowe’s jersey was held prior to the Bears’ doubleheader against Illinois State. The indoor practice facility at Hammons Field also bears Rowe’s name as of January 30, 2010.

Missouri Valley Conference From its early beginning to its current standing on the map of college athletics, the Missouri Valley Conference continues to be proactive in its approach as it enters its 104th year in 2010-11. The nation’s second-oldest NCAA Division I conference is a leader in college athletics and is one of the nation’s most progressive conferences. The Missouri Valley Conference enters a new decade facing a rapidly changing environment in NCAA Division I athletics as conference expansion and realignment swept the nation in the summer of 2010. Although The Valley was untouched, the league will remain vigilant in monitoring changes or potential changes in other conferences that might impact membership, or present opportunities for expansion. Men’s basketball continues to be the engine that drives Valley athletic programs. With UNI’s NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in 2010, the league has had four different Sweet 16 teams since 2006, and The Valley is the only non-BCS league with more than two different Sweet 16 teams in that span. Notably, the run of nine straight seasons with two or more teams in the NCAAs ended in 2007, as the past three seasons have seen only the tournament champion included in the NCAA field. While the success of men’s basketball has received the greatest attention, the overall performance of league teams in virtually every sport continues to raise the national profile of the conference. In baseball, Illinois State clinched a share of the regular-season MVC title for the first time in league history, and the Redbirds went on to take home the State Farm MVC Baseball Tournament trophy as well, topping host and top-seeded Wichita State. Illinois State earned just its second-ever bid to the NCAA Tournament. Based in St. Louis since 1985, the league is assertive in its approach to hosting NCAA basketball championship events, operating a revenue-producing in-house television network, bidding out the right to host sport championships and landing title sponsorships for those events. Meanwhile, the success of The Valley television package is one of the great stories in the league. The MVC Television Network has blossomed into a revenuegenerating vehicle and The Valley’s most visible marketing tool. Meanwhile, The Valley is making videostreaming a major focus as it enters the second year of a three-year plan to upgrade the production and marketing of both institutionally-produced and conference-produced webcasts. During the tenure of Doug Elgin, The Valley’s ninth and longest-tenured commissioner, The Valley has been aggressive in hosting NCAA events in St. Louis. Since 1998, the MVC served as host for a staggering nine NCAA tournament events in the 13-year period, which has made St. Louis one of the most frequent stops on the NCAA Tournament trail. The Valley hosted Women’s Final Fours in 2001 and 2009, and the Men’s Final Four in 2005. And while the Missouri Valley Conference has been progressive in pursuing NCAA events, it has continued to be a national leader in the athletic arena. And starting in 1995-96, the conference broke new ground by allowing league members to bid for hosting rights for select team sport championships. By establishing uniform host criteria, the conference is able to assist a host institution in a season-long promotional campaign and provide an avenue where hosts can acquire sponsors and achieve a profit for the event.

The 2003-04 campaign was a landmark for the conference as State Farm Insurance and the league came to terms on an agreement that provides State Farm with title sponsorship of all of the league’s 18 championships. Last fall, The Valley took a major step toward ensuring current revenues in television media and tournament sponsorship sales would be guaranteed in future years when it announced a 10-year partnership with Learfield Sports.The Jefferson City, Missouri-based company now has the exclusive sales and marketing rights to MVC assets that include championships and television advertising. Meanwhile, the league has been progressive in other areas, as it has taken its merchandise program in-house, while offering e-commerce solutions for league apparel, championship photography and a conference-wide videostreaming package. The seeds for this vision were planted by eight administrators representing five institutions, who met at the Midland Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 12, 1907. The five schools which formed the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association were Washington University of St. Louis, and the state universities of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Two months after the initial meeting, two more schools -- Drake University and Iowa State College -- were admitted. In the fall of 1907, basketball became the first competitive sport. Today, the Missouri Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country and track & field (indoor and outdoor), men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. This season, the league will conduct its 100th outdoor track and field championship, its 93rd tennis championship, its 57th baseball tournament, and its 73rd golf championship for the men. Those programs, plus other current sponsored sports of cross country (52 years), indoor track (44), soccer (20) and swimming and diving (17), have helped solidify The Valley as one of the nation’s most respected conferences. Athletic accomplishments on the men’s athletics side include 14 national basketball championships, 16 trips to the NCAA Final Four, a 1989 national baseball championship and 19 College World Series qualifiers. In 2010, Missouri State’s men’s basketball program won the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, the league’s first national title in men’s basketball since 1982 (Bradley, NIT). In 2001, Missouri State added to The Valley women’s accomplishments, as the Lady Bears advanced to the Women’s Basketball Final Four in St. Louis. Creighton (2004) and Missouri State (2005) have claimed national championships (WNIT) in women’s basketball, while MSU also has a 1992 NCAA Women’s Final Four appearance, and Creighton (2003), Drake (1999) and Illinois State (2009) have made semifinal trips to the WNIT postseason tournament. From its early beginning to its current standing on the map of college athletics, The Valley will always continue to be proactive in its approach. League members include Bradley, Creighton, Drake, Evansville, Illinois State, Indiana State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and Wichita State. Central Arkansas and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville are men’s soccer affiliates, beginning in 2010.
