Johnson E

llis T. Johnson Arena in the Academic-Athletic Center has served as the homecourt for Morehead State women’s basketball since 1981. The AAC is one of the best facilities in the nation for Women’s basketball, and Johnson Arena is named for former Morehead State athletic director and coach Ellis T. Johnson. Johnson was also a highly successful football coach at both University of Kentucky and Marshall University. The Eagles enjoy a tremendous home court advantage in Johnson Arena. During the summer of 2006, the arena floor was completely resurfaced with Morehead State’s new primary logo and word marks. The Eagles’ locker room, located just steps from the court, was also completely refurbished with new walls, lockers and furniture. The locker facility is also conveniently connected to the AAC training room. The building is a multi-purpose facility and also houses offices for a majority of the athletic department staff, including a second-floor office suite for women’s basketball. The facility also houses a cheerleading room, the Len Miller VIP Room, a full-service weight room, a satellite training room, sauna and steam rooms, and ample concession and storage areas. The University broke ground on the AAC in 1978 and completed the project in 1981. The Eagles won their inaugural game in the building on Dec. 3, 1981 over the University of Charleston. Johnson Arena itself has a seating capacity of 6,500 for basketball and can be easily tranformed into an auditorium for concerts and commencements. At the East end of the playing floor, a hydraulic stage can be raised for events. Since opening, the arena has hosted such national acts as Alabama, David Letterman, M.C. Hammer, the Goo Goo Dolls, Alan Jackson, Dashboard Confessional, Jeff Foxworthy, Tim McGraw, Travis Tritt and Sawyer Brown. 2011-12

Reloads for Exciting 2011-12 Season

W

hen a coach loses his school’s all-time leading scorer and two-time league Player of the Year, sometimes, it’s a cause for concern. Not for Morehead State second-year coach Tom Hodges. His 201112 Eagle team is still loaded with talent, all-conference players and eight capable newcomers, and the Eagles will look to pick up the tempo even more this season. The Eagles finished 21-10 and 13-5 in the Ohio Valley Conference last year. Gone is all-star Chynna Bozeman, but returning is preseason allconference players Courtney Lumpkin and Ashar Harris. Also back are senior Linda Dixon and sophomores Terrice Robinson, Allie Turner, Tyler Ituen and Shanice Parker. Harris, a 5-11 forward from Columbus, Ohio, ranked third in the nation in rebounding last year with 12.3 per game. She also scored 14.1 points per contest and ranked in the top three nationally in double-doubles with 21. Lumpkin returns for her senior campaign with the opportunity to set the Morehead State career record for assists. She needs just 102 more handouts for

that record. Last year, the 5-8 point guard from Cincinnati, Ohio, averaged 14.0 points per game and had a team-high 138 assists. She also has the unique chance to become the first player in school history to lead her team in assists all four seasons. Dixon returns after a 201011 season that saw her become arguably the most improved player in the conference. After limited playing time her first two seasons, Dixon burst onto the scene as a junior, averaging 8.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game and ranking second on the team with 57 steals. Robinson, a 5-5 guard from Ft. Pierce, Fla., and Turner, a 5-4 shooting guard from Enon, Ohio, are slated for larger roles in 2011-12. Robinson made six starts last year, scoring a career high 13 points against Eastern Illinois. Turner had a breakout season, averaging 6.0 points while draining 44 three-pointers. She came off the bench at Southeast Missouri and scored 24 points all in the second half. She also hit the game-winning layup as time expired in a one-point win at Jacksonville State. Ituen, a 5-8 guard from St. Louis, Mo.,

and Parker, a 5-9 guard/forward combo, both showed flashes of talent last year and will look for expanded roles in the Eagle rotation this season. Eight newcomers will look to find a spot in the lineup as well.

Loudmouth T

he Morehead State coaching staff and head coach Tom Hodges are the “best dressed coaches” in America thanks to a partnership with Loudmouth Golf. Prior to the 2010-11 season, Hodges and assistant coach Eric White brainstormed about ideas to gain more publicity for the Eagle women’s basketball program. Being an avid John Daly fan, Hodges contacted Daly’s clothing supplier, Loudmouth Golf, and the company sent the staff a number of outfits to wear for the 2010-11

2011-12

season. Hodges debuted the new “unique” look at the season opener at Kentucky and the rest was history. MSU immediately garnered national publicity and even was featured on ESPN’s College GameDay program. During the year, MSU also hosted a “Crazy Pants Party” promotion at a home game. Loudmouth Golf is now the official clothing supplier of the MSU women’s basketball coaching staff.

• Each athletics program shall be conducted in a manner that protect the physical, mental, emotional, and social welfare of each student-athlete. • Each student-athlete, through academic counseling and individual assistance, shall be encouraged toward completion of degree requirements and graduation. • Each athletics program shall adhere to the principles of fair play and amateur competition as defined by the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Ohio Valley Conference. • Each athletics program shall be administered at the highest level that the University’s resources will allow so that each student-

athlete will have the opportunity to compete to the fullest extent of his or her ability. • The athletics programs at Morehead State University shall make every effort to educate and serve the student-athletes of the University’s primary service area and their respective educational institutions. • The athletics program will accommodate student’s interests and abilities in a manner that is nondiscriminatory to both sexes and reasonable with the University’s resources. • The athletics program shall adhere to the University’s Affirmative Action Plan promoting equal opportunity for all employees and students, as well as applicants for employment and student participation.

Compliance Dear Friends: 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 student-athlete 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,

Richard Fletcher

Associate Director of Athletics/Compliance 2011-12
