A letter from Coach Tom Herrion Dear Marshall Maniacs/Students, I would like to take this moment to formally introduce myself to all of you. My name is Tom Herrion and I could not be more humbled and proud to be your basketball coach. It is an honor and a pleasure to coach your team and uphold the winning tradition that is Marshall University Basketball. I hope this note Yinds all of you competing at a high level in the classroom during this fall semester. It is an exciting time for our university and all of our athletic programs as we continue to work to become consistent champions. Our entire athletic department is dedicated to representing each and every member of the Marshall community in way that we all can be extremely proud of. Our coaches and our team could not be more excited about our season. We were very fortunate during the preseason to participate in a Yive game exhibition tour in Sanada. The young guys and new faces got a great chance to mesh with our veteran players so it was highly beneYicial. Our bus trip back to Huntington seemed very brief as we returned unbeaten with a \-b record. As I enter my fourth year as your basketball coach I realize how lucky I am to have a home court atmosphere like we do at the Sam Henderson Senter. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that we can create one of the toughest home court environments in the country with your help. Our student attendance has been very consistent but it is my standard coaching approach that it can always get better. We will all get better together. Our season starts this Friday night as we host South Sarolina State at Zdbb p.m. cet over to the Henderson Senter Box OfYice and show your MU If to pick up your ticket. We look forward on having each and every one of our Marshall Students join us on our basketball journey this year. When I arrived on Marshall’s campus three years ago, I promised to build something special, a program for our students and community to rally behind and be proud of and I intend to keep my promise. Have a great semester, Yinish strong. Go HERD! Soach Herrion

Canty called on to come up clutch By ADAM ROGERS

FOR THE PARTHENON The `ba_-a^ version of Marshall University men’s basketball team will be quite different than it was compared to last season. The biggest change is that at point guard. Redshirt freshman Kareem Santy is Yinally eligible to play for the Thundering Herd this year after sitting out last season as an academic non-qualiYier. Santy expected to play last season but the ]SAA shut the door on those dreams right up on the deadline for eligibility. While he was disappointed he was not able to assist, literally and metaphorically, his Thundering Herd teammates last year, Santy said sitting out beneYitted him. “I got a chance to watch a game from a different view,” Santy said. “I got a chance to watch how he (head coach Tom Herrion) coaches, how the players operate under pressure and just got to be hungrier on the court.” The beneYit Santy gained was also noticeable from teammate

Ryan Taylor. Taylor said Santy has improved most on the offensive end since last season. “His jump shot wasn’t consistent, but now it is,” Taylor said. “If you leave him open you might as well count it as two or three. [But] everything [has improved]. He changed his body, picked up weight, [and] got stronger in the weight room. Santy will be the primary point guard this season and head coach Tom Herrion said he expects Santy to handle the pressure of the position well. “It’s his natural position,” Herrion said. “He’s had the ball in his hands his whole life. I’d be surprised if he got rattled too often because he’s been in tougher environments playing in ]ew eork Sity then some of the places we have to go.” The point guard position inherently comes with loads of responsibility and leadership. Santy said he knows he can handle the responsibility and is working on his leadership. “That was a role I was supposed to take last year, so I’m used to it,” Santy said. “I knew

what was expected of me and I work hard every day. So when my teammates know that when game time comes I’ll be ready. “I’m not really vocal at all. I’m more of a go out there and show. I’ve got to Yind myself talking to certain people and watch what I do because people are watching.” Oct. `V was the Yirst time Santy stepped out on the Sam Henderson Senter Yloor for a game when the Herd defeated Soncord, U^-[b. Santy said the exhibition allowed him to loosen up before the season opener tips off against South Sarolina State. “I got my jitters out in the exhibition game and the scrimmages,” Santy said. “I just want to go out here perform, don’t turn the ball over. Just do what I do and relax.” The Herd and Bulldogs meet for just the second time ever with tip off Z p.m. Friday inside the Sam Henderson Senter Adam Rogers can be contacted at rogers112@ marshall.edu.

Herd men not as under the microscope this season By KYLE GIBSON

FOR THE PARTHENON Expectations for the `ba`-a_ Marshall University men’s basketball team were noticeably higher than in previous seasons. Many outside voices predicted or expected an ]SAA tournament run for a team that finished with an overall record of a_-aU. But that was last season and last season’s voices are having trouble concocting expectations for a team with eight official newcomers. This means the expectations could be lighter on the team entering its `ba_-a^ campaign. When asked if the expectations were different this season, feTince Boykins, sophomore guard, said there was a difference and it can be used in favor of the Herd.

“Most definitely,” Boykins said. “We can use it to our advantage because we don’t have those high expectations on us, so we can use that to our advantage and surprise a lot of people this year.” Head coach Tom Herrion said he expects the team to play with high expectations every time on the floor, but also said the team can use last season’s results as a driving force. “I want our kids to play loose, aggressive and confident every night they come out,” Herrion said. “Sonversely, there’s a chip on our shoulder. I want our kids to play with a chip on their shoulder. I think this group has that and that’s something we want to use as motivation.”

With those eight newcomers, many of whom are expected to feature in the top five and earn big minutes, there is a chance for the team to start fresh with new faces. The team’s leading scorer last season, senior forward Elijah Pittman, said the returning players would provide some advice to the team’s newcomers. “We just have to let them know that every game isn’t going to be easy,” Pittman said. “We can’t take any team lightly this season.” The team will open its new and hopefully considerably more laid-back campaign Friday against South Sarolina State in the Sam Henderson Senter.

Ryan Taylor expected to have big impact on Herd By COURTNEY SEALEY

FOR THE PARTHENON Ryan Taylor is one of several new members of the Marshall University men’s basketball team. For the past year, Taylor was a member of the Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. For his high school career, Taylor played basketball for three years at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis, Ind., before transferring for his senior year to play for his uncle at Western High School located in Louisville, Ky. There he averaged 26.6 points and 14.2 rebounds a game. He was ranked the No. 32 best small forward and No. 132 overall by Rivals in spring of 2011. However he opted to spend a year at Hargrave Military Academy so he could focus on become a better basketball player and student. In the 2011 season, he helped Hargrave to a 38-1 record and a ranking of No. 2 nationally. The team’s one loss was in the prep school national championship game against Brewster Academy. In that game, he scored 22 points and had 10 rebounds before having to leave the game due to injury. In his year at Hargrave he averaged a doubledouble, with 22 points and 11 rebounds a game. Several organizations wanted Taylor for his offensive playing capabilities and for his intimidating stature. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound forward was recruited by many elite teams such as Cincinnati, Indiana and Purdue. However, he decided to come to Marshall instead, a place where he said he knew he would get more playing time. Taylor’s addition to the team

makes him the third member of the Herd roster who was a former Kentucky high school all-state eirst team pick. The other two members are senior Elijah Pittman and sophomore Tamron Manning. Taylor said the transition from prep school to a Division-1 basketball team was not easy. “It’s been different coming from prep school,” he said. “It’s

a higher level, faster pace and the players are a lot stronger.” Although he hasn’t played a regular season game as a part of the Herd yet, Taylor already has a method of how he thinks the team will be successful this year. “We aren’t as big as in the past few years,” Taylor said. “But we are going to make our defense turn into offense. Get dunks and get the crowd in

the game at home and out of it away” He also said he plans on having a winning season, no matter what it takes. “Take charges, diving on the eloor, I mean it won’t hurt us too bad, we’ll go and get ice after the game,” he said. “Just all in for the 40 minutes so we can come out with a win”

:hris Thomas finds home in Hun<ngton By BRAXTON CRISP

FOR THE PARTHENON Rarely in the world of college athletics do the newcomers on a team outnumber the returning players, but that is exactly the case for the 2013-14 Marshall Thundering Herd men’s basketball team. The Herd bolsters eight new faces on the

team’s roster. Of those is sophomore transfer Chris Thomas, a 6-foot-5 guard from Denver, Colo., by way of Chipola Community College in Florida. Thomas said he is more than ready to get back onto the eloor and play basketball. “I’m very excited,” Thomas said. “I haven’t touched the

eloor in a long time. I’m ready to touch the eloor right now.” Thomas didn’t have the beneeit of travelling with the Herd to Canada when head coach Tom Herrion took his squad for a eive day, eive game trip north of the border in mid-August, so Thomas had to come into a totally new environment,

learn a new basketball system, become comfortable with the other players and the coaching staff, all while being thrust into a full semester of classes as well. Herrion said despite everything going on around him, Thomas has been eager to bond with his teammates. “We had a team meeting the Sunday before classes began on Monday,” Herrion said. “That was his eirst time meeting his teammates. After the meeting I remember watching, because I was conscious of it, he walks off with six or seven guys and to go eat dinner, and the rest is history.” In addition to building chemistry with his teammates, Thomas said he enjoys the people in Huntington as a whole. “I like West Virginia,” Thomas said very quickly when asked about how he likes the area. “Everybody is cool, nobody has a problem here and we’re all relaxed.” In terms of talent, Thomas scored 16 points and added eive rebounds during the Thundering Herd’s Green & White scrimmage Oct. 17. Eleven days later, Thomas got his eirst action against another team while wearing a Marshall uniform, scoring 14 points against Division-II Mountain East Conference member Concord University in an exhibition game Oct. 28.

Senegalese duo >nd familiarity far from home country By COURTNEY SEALEY

FOR THE PARTHENON For the past three seasons as a Marshall University men’s basketball team center, senior Yous Mbao has been playing far from his home country. This year, a new addition to the team has brought home back to him Several months ago the Herd received a commitment from a junior college player, Cheikh Sane. Sane grew up in Senegal playing soccer and only has six years of basketball experience. He only decided to play basketball after his brother told him that was the only way he would get his own pair of Nike sneakers. Senegal has a small population of 13 million and is located on the Atlantic Ocean. The republic is named after the Senegal River, which borders it to the east and north. It was known as part of French West Africa until the French colonies won their independence in 1960. Sane hails from the republic’s capital city of Dakar, while Mbao’s native city of Rueisque is only a short drive away. Before traveling to America, Sane spent grades nine through 12 at a preparatory boarding school named SEEDS (Sports for Education and Economic Development in Senegal) which used sports to inspire the youth in Senegal towards a better education and overall life. The school has about 50 students, and basketball is the only sport offered. SEEDS has produced several elite basketball players such as Gorgui Dieng, who formerly played at Louisville, and Baye Keita of Syracuse. SEEDS was successful in inspiring Sane and he decided to leave his native country to attend Snow College, a junior college in Utah. Although he spoke no English upon his arrival he did not let that hold him back. He averaged 10.4 points with nine rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in his sophomore year, which helped boost his team to a 20-11 record. After making his ofeicial visit last April, Sane committed to Marshall, citing that he enjoyed the program and had grown a relationship with the coaches. Sane has since said that he has enjoyed his time in Huntington as well. “I really like the town,” Sane said. “Living here I don’t have to

worry about distractions. I can focus on school and basketball” Yous Mbao is in his fourth season with the Herd. He sat out his freshman year in compliance with NCAA transfer regulations after transferring from Marquette. While he played 33 games in his sophomore season, his junior year was brought to a halt and highly effected after he sustained a head injury in practice. Because of this he missed eight-straight games and suffered from migraines throughout the season. Sane and Mbao did not know each other until Sane made his ofeicial visit to Marshall, but they have formed a bond that most many wouldn’t understand. Sane and Mbao are often heard speaking to each other in their native tongue. Both players said since they both haven’t been home in years, something as small as hearing French is enough to sooth their homesickness. Mbao, only one of two seniors on the team, has stepped up as a leader this season offering his support and advice to the new players in their transition into Division-1 basketball according to Sane. “He’s really helping me a lot, looking out for me, helping me improve my game,” Sane said. “We both came here to get what we want, to get better and to improve our game.” Mbao said he has just been trying to improve the relationship of the team members overall. “We have a good chemistry this year,” he said. “Everyone gets along, everyone knows players strength and weaknesses and that allows us to communicate issues.” Coach Herrion said he believes the team chemistry has really come together this year, thanks to the seniors. He also said he feels something with this team he hasn’t in a long time. “I don’t think I have been as energized with a group of guys as I have with this team,” Herrion said. “It’s been fun and I am anxious to get the season started” For the 2013 season, both Mbao and Sane are expected to be starters, helping propel the team to greatness throughout the season.

New-look women's team hopes to get a fresh start By KARLYN TIMKO

THE PARTHENON After a 9-21 record last season, the Marshall University women's basketball team is ready for a fresh start. Head coach Matt Daniel, who joined the Herd back in 2012, returns to the court for his second season with nearly a brand new team. The 2013-14 roster features six returners, five freshmen and five other newcomers. Many of them are far away from home. Freshman Maya Singleton, Bossier City, La., will look to bring a lot to the table right from the get-go. She was ranked the No. 38 power forward by Scout.com and the No. 72 player in the Premier Basketball Report National Top 100. Freshman Enjonae Chambers made the trip to Huntington from Conway, Ark. Chambers was a threetime all-conference player in high school. She also scored an impressive 1,346 total points in just three years of competition. The Herd also welcomes forward freshman Chelsey Romero of Queens, N.Y., a 2013 ESPN Hoopgurlz prospect.

For others, the transition wasn't as drastic. In fact, the move was no more than just a few blocks down the road. Kiana Evans, a Huntington native, grew up a Marshall fan her whole life. The two-time first team all-state standout will look to contribute to the Herd during her first collegiate season. The team also welcomes University of Cincinnati transfer Talequia Hamilton, another Huntington native. After a season-ending injury in her season opener last year, the redshirt junior is back in action and ready for a fresh start. Also joining the Herd, from Princeton, W.Va., is freshman guard McKenzie Akers. Akers holds the record for all-time leading scorer at Princeton Senior High School with 1,800 points. Adding further variety to the mix, the team was able to pick up three community college transfers. Leah Scott, Detroit, Mich., comes from Iowa Western Community College. Scott was a National Junior College All-American second team selection.

THOMAS

Continued from Page 3 Those two games provided just a small sample of what Thomas is capable of. While at Chipola, Thomas scored in double-digits 13 times a season ago, with a high of 21 points coming against Tallahassee Community College Jan. 5. He also proved to be a well-rounded player, pulling down 10 or more rebounds twice last season, including 10 of his 12 rebounds against Pensacola State College coming

TAYLOR

Continued from Page 3 Unlike Taylor, head basketball coach Tom Herrion has contained his emotions about the upcoming season, however he still has high hopes for the season. After the first exhibition game, he said he believes the team still has lot of work. “We were very skittish early with so many new players, which is expected, but our depth was key for us tonight and will be strength of ours,” Herrion said. “The positives outweighed the negatives

AJ Johnson, Silver Spring, Md., comes from Northeast Community College, and Aja Sorrells, Athens, Ga., comes from Hutchinson Community College. Both junior players made appearances in the National Junior College Athletic Association championship tournament. The final addition to the team is University of Maryland Balitomore County transfer Ashley Lambert. The redshirt junior from Woodbridge, Va., hints at continuous improvement after increasing her scoring production from 0.7 points to 6.7 points per game in just two short years. The nine new additions with join forces with six returners, including seniors Suporia Dickens, Orlandria Williams and Erica Woods. Juniors Justine Boerger and Chukwuka Ezeigbo also return, along with sophomore Norrisha Victrum. The new 16 member team poses an impressive line of fire. Coach Daniel and his squad will begin their season with their home opener against Blueeield College Friday. Play will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the Cam. Karlyn Timko can be contacted at timko@marshall.edu.

on the offensive glass. In a game against Santa Fe College, Thomas dished out 11 assists and committed just one turnover in 30 minutes of action. Thomas said his effort on the floor is what he prides himself most in. “I really play hard,” Thomas said. “That’s what I think I add most to this team is playing hard. Whatever it takes to win, that’s what I’m going to do. If it takes me to score, I’m going to score. If it takes me to get a stop, I’m going to get a stop.”

With the capability of stuffing the stat sheet in more than one column, plus his desire and drive to win basketball games, Thomas could prove to be an immediate impact on the 2013-14 season, as Marshall plays its first regular season game Nov. 8 against South Carolina State inside the Cam Henderson Center. “He’s a talented young man and he’s done a terrific job since he’s been here,” Herrion said. Braxton Crisp can be contacted at crisp23@marshall.edu.

a lot of players had a lot of good moments for us.” In Marshall’s first exhibition game against the Concord Mountain Lions, Taylor was six for nine in field goals, and scored 14 points for the Herd in just 21 minutes of play. Postgame, Taylor just commended his teammates. “We played as a team,” Taylor said. “We didn’t really care about who scored and we weren’t selfish with the ball. We went out there and had fun.” In Marshall’s exhibition trip to Canada, Taylor averaged 20 points and 10

rebounds in his first two games, before rolling his ankle in game three, which limited his playing time for the final three games. Even though he was injured, Taylor still gained 12 points and 10 rebounds in just 17 minutes of play in game four of the tour. Taylor’s positive attitude and overall excitement to be a member of the Thundering Herd brings a refreshing outlook for Herd fans as the Herd starts a season with a clean canvass in the 2013-14 season.
