2009-2010 SEASON PREVIEW New Faces, New Coach Begin A New Era of NCCU Basketball First-Year Head Coach LeVelle Moton Ushers in NCCU's third Division I Squad The 2009-2010 version of North Carolina Central University's men's basketball team will see a lot of new faces, but a familiar one has taken over as the program moves into it's third season at the Division I level. LeVelle Moton was named Head Coach on March 25, 2009 and has immediately made his mark on the program. He is the program's third all-time leading scorer and is the only player in school history to be named CIAA Player of the Year. He led the Eagles to the “Elite Eight” during his playing career, one that garnered Hall of Fame recognition. Since being named to head coach, he has energized a basketball crazy fan base. One thing Moton has preached to the Eagle nation is patience, because he knows full well that the road to the top will see its challenges, especially during this transition to Division I, and being his first season at the helm. “I just take it as a blessing each day that I wake up. I embrace it, relish the opportunity. I look forward to the challenge ahead. It's pretty much been parallel and symbolic to my life as a whole,” stated Moton. “I'm looking at it as a unique challenge that's ahead, and I'm just trying to embark on some new things. It's been a learning experience thus far, nothing I didn't expect, and nothing I will complain about. Right now my main focus is branding this basketball program, getting it out in the community and try to gets some fans in the seats to support this program.” The youthful Eagles boast just one senior, Joshua Worthy (Lewisville, TX), the lone player left from when NCCU's Division II days and still competing in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Four juniors (Michael Glasker, Vincent Davis, Lamar Pittman, and Raphael McDonald), one sophomore (Nick Chasten), and one freshman (Dami Sapara) round out the returners for NCCU. Vincent Davis is the leading returning scorer after dropping in 11.2 points per contest in his first season, while Michael Glasker led the team with 80 assists and looks to do much of the same in his third season in maroon and gray. Those seven along with Moton's first recruiting class will join together in this third Division I edition of NCCU basketball. “I know it's sounds cliché, but to get better each day is our mantra coming into this season," said Moton. "We're not trying to make any bold projections, we're just trying to have a first class organization with a blue collar work ethic day-to-day in what we do.

When you do that everything else takes care of itself, and if we do that, we'll be successful where we need to be on and off the floor.” Instant Recruiting Success Moments after being named head coach at NCCU, Moton was on the recruiting trail trying to get the pieces to a future championship puzzle. Six players made up Moton's first class starting with local products C.J. Wilkerson (Oxford, N.C.), Landon Clement (University of North Carolina at Greensboro transfer/Raleigh, N.C.), and Dijon Manns (Raleigh, N.C.) signed to attend NCCU and don the maroon and gray uniforms of the Eagles. T.J. Granger (Richmond, Va.) Dwayne Sims (Dayton, OH), and Ryan Fleming (Alpharetta, Ga) rounded out the final three signees in the recruiting class. Wilkerson, a 6-3 205 pound guard, played at J.F. Webb High School in Oxford, N.C. where he was named All-Conference in the Mid-State 3-A three times, along with Player of the Year honors his senior season. He was also Joshua Worthy is the lone senior on the 2009-10 named the “District Player of the squad, and will be looked upon for leadership.

2009-2010 SEASON PREVIEW first win of the season. Clement showed flashes of his shooting ability throughout the season with 15 points in a home loss to The Citadel, and 17 points against NCAA Tournament participant Chattanooga. In that contest on January 22, he went threefor-nine from the perimeter for the Spartans. When asked about bringing Clement in to NCCU, Moton compared him to former Duke standout J.J. Redick. “I have had the fortune of coaching this young man since he was 12 years old so obviously, there is a lot of emotion involved here”, said Moton. “I have said this from day one, he is the best shooter that I have ever coached and we welcome that ability here at NCCU.” Per NCAA Transfer rules, Clement will have to sit-out the 2009-10 season. The third signee to the 2009 class, Dijon Manns, a 6-8, 230-pound power forward from down the road in Knightdale, N.C., was one of just three players in Knightdale High School’s short history to play all four years of varsity basketball under Head Coach Battle Watkins. In his senior campaign, Manns scored in double figures 11 times, including a season-high 20 points in an 87-48 win over Southeast Raleigh High School. He also put up a double-double against Athens Drive in the conference tournament with 14 points and 12 rebounds in the win. Manns was named to the Greater Neuse River All-Conference team in the 2007-08 season and was a key contributor of 73 wins

during his time at KHS. Manns was also a vital member of both a regular season and tournament championship in the Greater Nuese River Conference while piling up 614 points and grabbing 250 boards in four seasons. “Dijon is a very skilled big man,” said Moton. "He reminds me of Sean May with his hands, feet, and ability to shoot the ball and also post. He comes from a winning program at Knightdale High and we were able keep an eye on him throughout the season because he was a local kid. "His parents (Teresa and Al) have done a tremendous job of instilling their core values which makes him an exceptional kid," Moton said of Manns. "I look forward to him contributing to our program immediately.” Terrance “T.J.” Granger, the fourth signee of the 2009 class, transfers from Allegany College of Maryland in Cumberland, Md., where the 6-9, 270-pound center played a crucial role for the Trojans, who finished the 2008-2009 season 29-7 overall and 14-2 in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference under Head Coach Mike Baker. Granger averaged 9.4 points per game and was third on the team with 5.4 rebounds a game. He was also second on the squad shooting 56.2 percent from the field. He stepped up his game in the postseason for the Trojans as he was named to the Region XX All-Tournament team after putting up a double-double with 16 points and 15 rebounds. That all-star performance helped vault the program to its 20th Region XX Division I tournament championship, which qualified Allegany for the NJCAA National Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas.  In the first game of the District 3 National Tournament, Granger was one of three Allegany players in doublefigures putting up 12 points in a 70-66 win over Monroe. He is originally from Richmond, Va., where he starred at Thomas Jefferson High School before moving on to ACM, the same institution that former University of Maryland star, Steve Francis, attended. Numerous reports had Granger being sought after by many mid-major programs before expressing his desire to wear the maroon and gray. “We obviously wanted to address our interior needs and Terrance provides us with that,” said Moton. “He is a skilled player with good hands, feet, and touch that will give us an immediate inside presence to compete at the highest level. When you think of Terrance, not only do you think of a skilled big man, but you think of a high-character www.NCCUEaglePride.com

T.J. Granger brings much needed size to the 2009-2010 Eagle roster. kid with a strong family background. We are fortunate that this kid has chosen to become an Eagle." The fifth signee for NCCU transfers in with teammate C.J. Wilkerson, who both came from Clinton Junior College in Rock Hill, S.C. Dwayne Sims, a 6-6, 180-pound forward originally from Dayton, Ohio, averaged 10.0 points per game and 6.8 rebounds per outing in his second season with the Golden Bears. Sims also recorded six double-doubles during his second season at CJC and tickled the twine to the tune of 33 percent from the perimeter. In his freshman season at the college, he poured in 11.0 points a game and grabbed 5.6 boards a contest for Head Coach Donald Payton’s squad. The Buckeye State product was a teammate of University of Dayton star Chris Wright at TrotwoodMadison High School and Moton feels his game fits perfectly to the style of play he will implement here at NCCU. “Dwayne's ability to shoot the basketball will extend the floor for us offensively,” said Moton“He is able to play three positions on the floor because of his length and toughness and we certainly welcome those abilities into our program.” The sixth and final recruit in Moton's class is Fleming, a 5-11, 160-pound guard from Centennial High School in Alpharetta, Ga. Fleming was the point guard for one of the top teams in the Peach State. Leading the

"I am elated to have such an outstanding academic institution as North Carolina Central to return to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference," said MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas. "I would like to commend Chancellor Nelms, Dr. Wicker-McCree, and the entire NCCU family for all their continued hard work as they make the transition from Division II to Division I." Commissioner Thomas added, "The addition of NCCU keeps us in compliance with our long range strategic plan of adding up to 14 members. NCCU is a perfect fit for the MEAC."

"We now have a home!" NCCU is in the third year of its reclassification from NCAA Division II to Division I. NCCU is one of seven founding member institutions of the MEAC. The Eagles withdrew from the conference in 1979, opting to remain a Division II member when the conference reclassified to Division I. From 1979-2007, NCCU competed in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA). "This is a significant milestone in North Carolina Central University's transition to Division I," said NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms. "Membership in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is a win-win proposition for our student-athletes, alumni and fans -- indeed, all our university constituents."

On July 16, 2009 Robert Brickey was added as the final piece to Moton's fulltime coaching staff. Known as Coach K’s Original High Flyer from his basketball playing days at Duke University, Brickey played under Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s guidance at Duke from 1986-1990. Brickey's previous stop came just two-and-a-half miles down the road with the Duke women’s program after a threeyear stint as the Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Shaw University (2005-08).

He finished his career at Duke as one of the most beloved players to don the Blue Devil uniform and is still talked about with reverence.

HEAD COACH - LeVELLE MOTON MOTON'S VISION: SUCCESS FOR EAGLES

Raleigh native overcomes humble upbringing to become N.C. Central's New Coach WRITTEN BY EDWARD G. ROBINSON III - Staff Writer - News & Observer Published: Sun, Jun. 21, 2009 LeVelle Moton anticipates your laughter, but he's so serious ... "I want to take N.C. Central to the Final Four," he said. "It can be done. That's why we play the game. If we get there, get on that dance floor, anything can happen." He knows it sounds funny -- N.C. Central and its new basketball coach making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. The school entered Division I two years ago. The Eagles don't play in a conference, finished last season with a 4-27 record and are not even allowed to compete in the postseason until 2011. But if Moton has learned one thing, it's never to listen to those who can't see his vision, can't understand how this kid from Southeast Raleigh rose from Boys and Girls Club participant to high school and college star to Division I head coach, all while avoiding the pitfalls of drugs and violence that befell many of his neighborhood peers. Since graduating from Enloe in 1992, where he was a McDonald's All-American Honorable Mention as a senior, he has positioned himself as an up-and-coming college coach. He's been methodical in his approach and has leveraged his status as a local basketball figure. He's earned respect and credibility within the Triangle basketball community, having created his reputation as a sweet-shooting guard at N.C. Central and a two-time conference championship coach at once-woeful Sanderson High. He's established relationships with top recruits like John Wall. He's the guy North Carolina players used to train with in the summer and NBA players consulted when they needed help. So laugh, but he's so serious ... "I don't know any better," said Moton, 35, a Raleigh native who became the program's 17th coach in March. "It was the same thing when I was at the Mini Park [basketball courts where he played growing up], and they were like, 'Here, hit this,' and I was like, 'No, because I'm going pro one day.' ... It's the same chuckle I've gotten all my life."

Avoiding trouble Moton refers to himself as the "rose that grew from concrete." It's a direct reference -- one he bor-

(Photo by Chuck Liddy- News & Observer) rowed from slain rapper Tupac Shakur -to his childhood in Southeast Raleigh with his mother, Hattie McDougald, and older brother, Verne. They lived in a two-bedroom apartment on East Jones street, where the boys shared a room. Behind their three-floor building was an empty lot where Moton and his brother shot baskets through a bike tire rim they hung on a tree. They tied shoestrings as nets. "All of this was the projects," said Moton one day last month as he toured the neighborhood blocks down from historic Oakwood. He looked at the newly developed homes, painted in pretty pastels, and said, "We would have been proud to have been from this neighborhood right there." The neighborhood he remembered paled in comparison. One block teemed with a liquor house, crack house and prostitution house. Crime, drugs and violence choked the environment, he said. From the basketball courts at the Mini Park on Lane Street he could see downtown Raleigh, but it seemed worlds away. When Moton was 9, one of his friends was struck by a stray bullet. Twice crooks burglarized his home. "It's hard seeing your door open and seeing your TV gone, VCR gone, and you know your mom has scrapped just to get that," he said. Growing up, he balanced a child's desire to venture out with his mother's non-negotiable rulebook. "He knew he couldn't get anywhere in life with a record," McDougald said. "I stressed that." Determined to keep her boys from trouwww.NCCUEaglePride.com

ble, she asked former Wake County sheriff John H. Baker Jr. to show them the inside of the county jail. "That was real," Moton said. "I saw how cats were living and wanted more out of my life." "Telling them was one thing, showing them was another," McDougald said. It was a lesson that may have saved Moton from the hardships some of his friends faced. Two of his teenage friends went to prison for robbing and killing a store clerk. His mother, who owned a cleaning service, provided what she could. Still, he was teased about his free lunches in high school. "Poor is a mentality," Moton said. "We didn't have financial money. But the love and the doctrines of making you feel good about yourself; my mother had a Ph.D. in that."

'A safe haven' If escaping poverty was Moton's motivation, then the Raleigh Boys and Girls Club was his salvation. He joined a year early, at age 5, a deal his mother brokered to allow him to attend with his older brother. "I don't know what I would have done without the Boys Club," said McDougald, whose children attended year-round. In the summer, they were there from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. They usually arrived on foot, cutting through St. Augustine's campus, past the Washington Terrace apartment complex. Ron Williams, the Raleigh club's former

HEAD COACH - LeVELLE MOTON athletic director, coached Moton until he entered high school and over time became a father figure to the boy with the Slim Jim build and competitive nature. Back then, the club's motto was "the club that beats the streets." "The Boys Club was a safe haven for him," Williams said. "He could feel free to come and have a good time and without fear of all of those negative things." Moton read his first book at the Boys Club. He remains a voracious reader. "They exposed me to another side," said Moton, who easily mixed with kids from different ethnic and social backgrounds. The boys club also fostered Moton's love for sports. For a high-energy, gregarious child, they provided more than enough activities, from baseball -- his first love -- to soccer. But you could always find Moton on the basketball court. He'd play horse for a quarter. Or play one-on-one to 10. After a while, with his quick first step separating him from the pack, he'd have to spot eight points to get a game. "For 50 cent?" he said. "Yeah, I'll spot you eight."

Engaging personality Of course, Moton believes the Final Four is within N.C. Central's grasp. His childhood, he said, set the foundation for him to believe that anything is possible. He'll still spot you eight points. Nicknamed "Poetry 'N Moton," he is third among N.C. Central's all-time career scoring leaders with 1,714 points, owns the 3-point field goals made career record, is fourth in free throws made, fifth in assists, eighth in field goals made, 10th in scoring average and 11th in steals. He was named the 1996 CIAA player of the year, edging Ben Wallace, now with the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. After graduating from college with a bachelor's degree in recreation administration in 1996, Moton played four seasons with professional teams in Indonesia and Israel. In 2001, he returned home and took his first coaching job at West Millbrook Middle School, remaining there for three seasons until he was hired as the head coach at Sanderson. "I remember early on that this was a young man that had a tremendous capacity for doing good," said Cathy Moore, an area superintendent with the Wake County Public Schools, who was the principal at Sanderson and hired Moton. She was also his French teacher at Enloe. People tend to like Moton, even other coaches. He's easygoing, quick to ex-

his wife Bridget in 2008. She gave birth to his first child, Brooke, on March 12. He signed a five-year contract with N.C. Central for an annual salary of $100,000. "I learned so much from the have-nots," Moton said. "I'm glad I was at the bottom because I got a full view of everything. Now it comes back full circle."

change handshakes and share a story. "He doesn't meet a stranger," said former Duke point guard Jeff Capel, who is now head coach at Oklahoma. Moton has collected mentors like Moore, inside and outside of basketball. "He has studied under all the good coaches, watched them and studied them," Southeast Raleigh High basketball coach John Baker III said. "He's gone through all the proper steps." In July 2007, Moton left Sanderson to take an assistant job at his college alma mater, serving as a recruiter for two seasons. His selection as head coach came as a surprise to some who felt the program needed a more experienced leader as it makes its transition from Division II. Moton understands the pressures but is determined to use the formula that allowed him to succeed so far. Despite life's challenges, he never wavered from what he knew to be the right thing. "I never wanted to disappoint my grandmother and mother," he said. Now he has his own family. He married

Moton shares those lessons with players. Many of them can relate to his underdog story. He continues to support the Raleigh Boys and Girls Club. On Aug. 7, he will sponsor a day of fun for members. "The work he does is about the people," Moore said. "It's about the students, the athletes, the colleagues he works with, about the people who have formally and informally mentored him along the way." Moton said he wants his players to answer four questions before they leave his program: Who are you? What are your core beliefs? Why are you here on this earth? And where are you going when you leave N.C. Central? What should they take from him? "The determination," he said. "The will to succeed. A lot of men will not admit it but I have an insecurity about myself. ... I'm scared if I don't make it I'm going back there." That's why Moton can talk about reaching the Final Four. "That's just how my life's been," he said. "Nobody believed me. I've always been the underdog. I've always had to prove people wrong. For me, that's cool."

2008-2009 SEASON REVIEW

NCCU Sees Light at the End of Treacherous Tunnel The second season for North Carolina Central University at the Division I level brought along more of the same challenges that year one sent NCCU's way. The Eagles under the direction of fifth-year Head Coach Henry Dickerson finished with a 4-27 record that included a “Senior Night” victory over fellow independent Longwood University 82-64 on Feb. 28, and a second season-ending triumph over rival Winston-Salem State University in the MEAC Bonus Game 6356 on March 14. ON THE ROAD AGAIN, AGAIN, AND AGAIN

During NCCU’s first season of Division I competition in 2007-08, the Eagles traveled roughly 22,280 miles to 23 road games in 13 different states. The 200809 NCCU schedule was quiet familiar to the returning Eagles. The travel itinerary included 21 road games, covering approximately 25,344 miles, in 14 states (Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia), including eight states (Ark., Ga., Ill., Kan., Okla., Pa., S.C., Texas) the Eagles did not compete in during last season’s 13-state tour.

INJURY BUG HITS NCCU, SEASON WITH 8 PLAYERS

STARTS

The injury bug hit the Eagles hard at the beginning of the 2008-09 season to the point where only eight players dressed out for NCCU's Nov. 14 opening-night affair at Wake Forest. Preseason injuries to junior-transfers Lamar Pittman (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) and Dami Sapara (Staten Island, N.Y.) were both lost for the season due to injury, while both Nick Chasten (Raleigh, N.C.) and Norbert Randall (Jacksonville, Fla.) sat out the first semester awaiting clearance from the NCAA. To make matters even worse for NCCU, senior Bryan Ayala was suspended the first semester due to a violation of Athletics Department policy. Raphael McDonald, a member of the 2008 NCCU Football Team, rejoined the roster after football season was complete to give the Eagles nine players, but it wasn't until December 18, when NCCU finally had all the pieces they could possibly have in place. Luckily, Henry Dickerson's squad never witnessed any major injuries throughout the remainder of the 2008-09 season.

2008-2009 SEASON REVIEW DAVIS EARNS ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM HONORS TWICE

BRISCOE RECEIVES STANDING OVATION AT DUQUESNE

NCCU sophomore guard Vincent Davis was selected to two AllTournament Teams last season. In the final two games of the 2008 South Padre Island Invitational (Nov. 2829), Davis amassed 25 points, nine steals, eight rebounds, five blocked shots and two assists to earn AllTournament Team honors. In his best outing, Davis recorded 15 points, six steals, five boards, three rejections and an

On Dec. 22, 2008, those inside the Palumbo Center at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa., took part in something rarely seen in college sports. When visiting NCCU rookie guard Jamar Briscoe fouled out of the game with 1:23 remaining after scoring a career-high 34 points, the home fans gave Briscoe a standing ovation. A classy move by the Duquesne faithful.

assist against UNC-Wilmington on Nov. 28 in South Texas. On Dec. 6-7 at the Drake/ Iowa Realty Invitational, Davis collected 37 points (18.5 avg.), seven rebounds, four blocked shots, four steals and two assists to capture All-Tournament Team recognition.

NCCU trailed nationally-ranked Michigan by just seven points at intermission and was within eight points with less than nine minutes left in the contest, but the Wolverines held off the determined Eagles for a 77-57 victory on Dec. 29 inside Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Mich. Michigan was ranked No. 23 by the Associated Press and No. 24 by the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. NCCU won the Divsion II National title under Head Coach Michael Bernard, while Michigan won the 1989 Division I National Championship under Steve Fisher.

BATTLE OF 1989 NATIONAL CHAMPS

AYALA FINISHES NCCU CAREER IN STYLE

Senior guard Bryan Ayala needed 15 points in the final game of his career to reach the milestone of 1,000 points. The Norfolk, Va. Native got to that plateau in thrilling fashion by scoring 18 of his 19 points in the second-half, leading an Eagle surge in the final half. His free-throw with 42.6 seconds left in the game not only helped seal the win for NCCU, but Ayala became the 32nd Eagle in school history to score 1,000 career points. Ayala also ended his tenure at NCCU as the school's alltime leader in steals (196) and ranks second on the Eagles career assists list with 366. NCCU FRESHMAN NATION'S SECOND LEADING SCORER

point performance against Wake Forest and was one of only three rookies to be ranked among the Top 100 scorers in NCAA Division I men’s basketball. The native of Baltimore, Md. scored 30 points or more five different times during his freshman campaign, one of which included 37 points on “Senior Night”. Briscoe finished the year as the nation’s second-leading scoring rookie with 535 points for an average of 17.8 points per game, which put him tied for 71st in the nation. The freshman with the most points among Division I leaders was Seth Curry of Liberty, who ended his only season at Liberty 23rd with 680 points (20.6 ppg).

EAGLES IN THE NBA DRAFT

NCCU’S YOUNG SELECTED BY SEATTLE IN NBA DRAFT

North Carolina Central University senior David Young had his dream fulfilled on June 24, 2004, when the Seattle Supersonics selected the All-CIAA guard with the 41st overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. Young, NCCU’s first NBA draft pick in 21 years, sat alone in an Atlanta hotel room when he saw his name flash on the television as the 12th player chosen in the second round. After ending his college career as the Eagles’ top scorer in 2003-04 with 20.5 points per game, Young faced a long and tough journey around the NBA workout circuit. “I have endured and persevered through a lot of tough times.” Young said reflecting on his life and basketball career. “I have always dreamed about playing in the NBA. I got a second opportunity at North Carolina Central University and now my dream has come true.”

EAGLES IN THE BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME

NCCU Eagles Inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame John B. McLendon

SAM JONES

Enshrined: As a coach on April 30, 1979 Born: April 5, 1915 in Hiawatha, KS Died: October 8, 1999 NCCU: Head Coach, 1940-1952

Enshrined: As a player on April 30, 1984 Born: June 24, 1933 in Laurinburg, NC NCCU: Student-Athlete, 1951-54 / 1956-57

John B. McLendon’s contributions to the sport of basketball are virtually innumerable. His advisor at the University of Kansas was the inventor of basketball, Dr. James Naismith. At North Carolina College from 1937 to 1952, and as head basketball coach from 1940 to 1952, he pioneered basketball’s full court game, using such strategies as the full court press, the full court zone (now known as the zone press), the open center offense whose variants include the “four corners,” the rotating pivot, and the double-pivot. In 38 years as a head coach, he achieved a collegiate coaching record of 523 wins to 165 losses for a .760 winning percentage, including a 239-68 record at NCC. He was also the first black coach in a professional basketball league (with the Cleveland Pipers in the American Basketball League in 1961) and the first black coach at a predominantly white university (Cleveland State employed him in June 1966). Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Bio: John B. McLendon’s engaging personality made him a popular basketball figure for more than 60 years. His extraordinary knowledge of basketball history made him one of the game’s leading ambassadors. But, it is his coaching resume that makes many in the profession envious. McLendon, who learned basketball from Dr. James Naismith as an undergraduate at Kansas, is the first coach in history to win three consecutive national titles. McLendon earned this honor by guiding Tennessee State to the 1957, 1958 and 1959 NAIA national championships. McLendon championed for heightened awareness of basketball at all-black colleges, and helped initiate an era of integrated basketball. McLendon’s wellrounded coaching background included positions at the collegiate, AAU and professional level. He coached North Carolina College, Hampton Institute, Tennessee State, Kentucky State and Cleveland State along with the Cleveland Pipers (NIB-ABL) and the Denver Rockets (ABA). Named the 1958 NAIA Coach of the Year, McLendon coached teams that won eight CIAA titles between 1941 and 1952, the NIBL and AAU championships in 1961, and the ABL Eastern Division crown in 1962. McLendon, who has traveled the world promoting basketball, wrote two books, Fast Break Basketball and The Fast Break Game.

North Carolina College Playing Highlights: Scored 1,745 points playing for Hall of Fame coach John McLendon; Three-time All-Conference; Enshrined in NAIA Hall of Fame (1962). Pro Highlights (NBA Boston Celtics, 1957-69): All-NBA Second Team (1965-67); Five-time NBA All-Star (1962, 1964-66, 1968); Member of 10 championship teams (1959-66 and 1968-69); Tallied 15,411 points (17.7 ppg) in his 12-year career; Scored 2,909 points in 154 playoff games (18.9 ppg), 15th best in history; NBA 25th Anniversary Team (1970); NBA 50th Anniversary Team (1996). Hall of Fame Bio: At six-footfour, Sam Jones was the prototype of the tall guard who could run the floor, bang the boards and had a rangy offensive game that gave opponents fits. One of the “Jones Boys” in Boston, Sam teamed with K.C. in the Celtics backcourt to create havoc in NBA arenas around the country. Jones favored an unorthodox but highly effective “bank shot” that became the muscle behind his and Boston’s 10 NBA championships, including eight in a row (1958-66). As a collegian, Jones was an offensive firehouse scoring 1,745 points while playing for Hall of Fame coach John McLendon at all-black North Carolina College. Jones was not a collegiate All-America and was a relative unknown, but that didn’t sway Red Auerbach, who drafted Sam in the first round of the 1957 draft. Jones didn’t disappoint the Boston faithful. His 12-year NBA career included five All-Star Game appearances, 871 regular season games and 154 playoff games. Considered one of the NBA’s most prolific graceful shooters, Jones scored 15,411 points (17.7 ppg), plus 2,909 (18.9 ppg) more in the playoffs. Considered one of the fastest NBA guards with superb court vision and savvy, Jones led the Celtics in scoring three times, averaging a career-high 25.9 points in 1965. An extremely popular player, in 1970 Jones was selected to the NBA Silver Anniversary Team (1970), a composition of the greatest NBA stars of the league’s first 25 years. He later would be named one of the top 50 players in history when the NBA celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1996.

CHANCELLOR CHARLIE NELMS diversity and equity efforts. In September 2001, TIME magazine named IU’s Bloomington campus the number-one student-centered research university in the nation. Many of the programs cited by TIME were under Nelms’ oversight and direction. A native of Crawfordsville, Arkansas, Nelms majored in agronomy and chemistry at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, graduating in 1968. He later earned a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs (1971) and a doctoral degree in higher education administration (1977) from Indiana University. Early in his career, he rose through the faculty and administrative ranks as associate dean for Student Development at Earlham College in Indiana (1973-1977), associate director of the Center for Human Development and Education Services at the UAPB (19771978), associate dean for Academic Affairs at Indiana University Northwest (19781984) and vice president for Student Services at Sinclair Community College in Ohio (1984- 1987). In 1987, Nelms began a seven-year tenure as chancellor of Indiana University East, a commuter campus serving east-central Indiana. During his tenure there, the campus was the fastest-growing college in the State of Indiana. In 1994, Nelms was named chancellor of the University of Michigan at Flint (UMF), an urban campus that enrolls over 6,500 students and offers a full spectrum of undergraduate and master’s degree programs. Before being recruited to Indiana University in 1998, he resolved a significant campus budget deficit, reversed a four-year enrollment decline, and secured more than $75 million in private gifts to UMF.

UNIVERSITY PROFILE History In 1910, Dr. James E. Shepard envisioned and founded a school that prepared African American adults for leadership roles in our nation’s communities. Founded as the National Religious Training School and Chautauqua, North Carolina Central University (NCCU) became the nation’s first state-supported historically black liberal arts college. In 1923, the National Training School became the state-supported Durham State Normal School, devoted to “the training of teachers for the Colored Public Schools of North Carolina.” Two years later, Dr. Shepard was able to persuade the General Assembly to take a revolutionary step, making the institution a liberal arts college and naming it North Carolina College for Negroes in 1925. The School of Law was established in 1940 and the School of Library Science in 1941. By the time of Dr. Shepard’s death on October 6, 1947, the institution that had become North Carolina College at Durham was fully-accredited, highly respected and had become the alma mater of a growing list of distinguished alumni. Today, under the leadership of Chancellor Charlie Nelms, NCCU is a comprehensive university offering more than 100 bachelor’s degrees in various disciplines, 40 master’s degree programs and three professional degrees in law. The university reaches out to all racial and ethnic groups, and has a diverse student population of more than 8,000. New Initiatives NCCU is on the cutting edge with its Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise known as BRITE. The institute offers new bachelor’s and master’s

degrees in pharmaceutical science. These programs provide students with core scientific competencies in biology or chemistry as well as hands-on laboratory practice. In addition, there are seminar courses in drug development operations, FDA regulations, quality assurance and control, and intellectual property and patent law. NCCU’s BRITE is an important part of the statewide initiative to make North Carolina a premiere provider of skilled workers for the biotechnology industry. The School of Law has won kudos for providing top-notch legal education. According to Vault, Inc., a publishing firm that researches and collects data on diverse professions, the law school has not received the acknowledgment it is due. Vault surveyed 512 recruiters who identified 25 “underrated” schools, and the NCCU School of Law was ranked at number 14. NCCU and the African American Jazz Caucus are partnering to form the NCCU/ AAJC Jazz Research Institute (NAJRI) in an effort to preserve the integrity of jazz as an African American art form. One of the functions of the Institute will be to address the critical artistic and economic situation of jazz in the African American community as well as develop other initiatives such as a North Carolina Hall of Fame dedicated to highlighting the work of jazz artists from North Carolina. In an effort to bring more study abroad options to students, NCCU has been accepted as a member of the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), a nonprofit membership organization that provides affordable and diverse study abroad and exchange opportunities to students around the world. NCCU is only one of four historically black college or university in the ISEP network. ISEP membership makes it possible for NCCU students to study abroad at over 135 different universities in 39 countries. NCCU is the first historically black institution in the nation to have an athletic training education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. Built upon the motto of Truth and Service, NCCU is a university committed to preparing and equipping students with the knowledge and skills to compete in the global marketplace. www.NCCUEaglePride.com

ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT North Carolina Central University is competing in its second year of reclassification as an NCAA Division I institution (Football Championship Subdivision), and the Eagles will be playing as an independent during the 2009-10 athletics campaign. Fourteen men’s and women’s sports teams participate in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition at the Division I-FCS level. Men’s intercollegiate teams include football, basketball, baseball, indoor and outdoor track & field, tennis, golf and cross country. Women’s intercollegiate teams include basketball, volleyball, indoor and outdoor track & field, tennis, softball, bowling and cross country. NCCU’s athletic programs have enjoyed regional and national recognition for years, headlined by the 1989 NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball National Championship. NCCU’s commitment to a balanced athletic program, providing equitable resources to all of its sports teams, is abundantly

apparent. In five of the last eight years in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), NCCU claimed the Loretta Taylor AllSports Trophy, recognizing the top all-around women’s program in the conference. In 2007-08, NCCU’s first season of Division I (FCS) competition, the women’s volleyball team kicked off the Division I era with a dramatic, come-from-behind win over N.C. State, then cruised to 21 victories, all against Division I opponents. The football team finished its first Division I season with a 6-4 record, the Eagles fourth straight winning season. The men’s and women’s cross country teams each won four of their seven events. The men’s basketball team played one of the toughest schedules in the country, while traveling more than 22,000 miles and playing in 13 different states. The squad earned a road victory over the eventual Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) champions and capped the season with a win over rival Winston-Salem State University at the MEAC Tournament. Finally, the track and field program won two events at the prestigious Penn Relays and qualified two student-athletes for the USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Boston. In 2006-07, NCCU’s final season in the NCAA Division II, the Eagles placed 24th in the final standings of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup, the prestigious award presented annually to the best overall collegiate athletics programs in the country. In 2006-07, NCCU won four CIAA team championships and participated in nine NCAA Division II Championship events.

ATHLETICS DIRECTOR

Ingrid Wicker-McCree Director of Athletics

Ingrid Wicker-McCree, Ed.D. was appointed as the Director of Athletics at North Carolina Central University on April 23, 2008, after holding the interim position for five months. She officially began her new leadership role on May 1, 2008. Wicker-McCree,who joined the rank of only a handful of women athletic directors in the UNC system, previously served as NCCU’s associate athletics director for internal affairs. She has served in a variety of leadership positions in both conference and national level organizations, most notably as president of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Executive Board from 2004-06, becoming only the second woman to ever hold that position in the league’s history. In addition, she served as a member of the NCAA’s Division II Legislation Committee from 2003-07. In recognition of her work, Wicker-McCree received the CIAA Leadership Award for Service as president of the Executive Board and was named the CIAA Senior Woman Administrator of the Year in the spring of 2006. Now in her 15th year at NCCU, Wicker-McCree has been one of the driving forces behind NCCU’s reclassification to NCAA Division I. Since 1998, she has overseen the internal operations of the Athletics Department, including all compliance and eligibility programs. Her impact on this university's athletic department has been immense. It has been her strong leadership skills that have enabled NCCU to make the trek to Division I a successful one thus far. With her steadfast and forward thinking she has increased the number of staff members two-fold while merging and creating a brand-new fund raising arm for the Athletic department, The Eagle Club. Not to mention the nearly one million dollars worth of upgrades to O'Kelly Riddick Stadium with the brand-new Mondoturf playing surface and the newlyinstalled videoscoreboard called, "Eaglevision". Those are just a few of the changes and additions that she has set in motion during her time, and those will certainly go a long way into planting the seeds of her legacy. Wicker-McCree began her career at NCCU as the head coach for women’s volleyball and softball. She became the first coach in NCCU history to win conference championships in multiple sports, capturing the school’s first-ever CIAA titles in softball (1998) and volleyball (1999, 2004, 2005). A threetime CIAA Volleyball Coach of the Year (1999, 2002, 2005) and former member of the NCAA Division II National Volleyball Committee, Wicker-McCree earned 239 match victories in 12 seasons as head volleyball coach at NCCU. She was also inducted into the NCCU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004 as head coach of the 1998 softball team. A native of Durham and graduate of C.E. Jordan High School, Wicker-McCree played on two North Carolina high school state volleyball championship teams, while also lettering in basketball and track and field. She continued her volleyball playing career as a student-athlete at George Washington University. Wicker-McCree earned her undergraduate degree in criminal justice from George Washington University in 1989, and a master’s degree in recreation resources administration

from North Carolina State University in December 1991. She also completed doctoral studies in higher education administration at North Carolina State University in June 2008. She began her coaching career as a graduate assistant coach for the women’s volleyball program at N.C. State (1989-90). She then spent two seasons (1992-93) as head volleyball coach and student- Ingrid Wicker-McCree accepts the athlete academic 2007 Loretta Taylor All-Sports Trophy, counselor at North recognizing the top all-around women's Carolina A&T State program in the conference, from Jeffrey University before McLeod of the CIAA. returning to her hometown to begin her NCCU tenure in August 1994. Wicker-McCree has been involved as a player and coach in the USA Volleyball Carolina Region. She also served as director of three USAV Junior Olympic Teams (ages 18, 16, 14 and under) and director of the Y.M.C.A. Middle School Girls’ Volleyball Camp (ages 10-14). Wicker-McCree and her husband, Geno McCree, a threesport collegiate student-athlete and 1991 graduate of Elon University, are the proud parents of Alexia (11), Quinton (9) and Sydney (5).

“Winning” for the Eagles is more than outscoring the opponent, it is excelling in the classroom, actively participating in community service projects and adhering to NCAA rules regarding recruitment and admission of studentathletes. How can you help the Eagles win?

Follow the NCAA rules The NCAA defines an institution as the University, its employees, its

92

student-athletes, and its representatives of athletics interests, including parents alumnus/and fans. Therefore beware of the following: NCAA BYLAW 13.1.2.1 In Division I, representatives of an institution’s athletics interests are prohibited from making in-person, on- or off-campus recruiting contacts, including written and/or telephonic communications with a prospect or the prospect’s relatives or legal guardians.

www.NCCUEaglePride.com

A prospect is defined as any student who has started classes for the ninth grade, whether the student participates in athletics is not relevant to the classification as a prospect and neither is gender. NCAA BYLAW 16.02.3 An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a student-athlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation. Unless you are willing to give a benefit to all 8,000 students at NCCU, don’t give it to a student-athlete or a prospect.


MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY sified as a Division I conference by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Prior to that year the league operated as a Division II conference. The following month the MEAC received an automatic qualification to the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship. Currently, the league has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men's basketball (since 1981), women's basketball (since 1982), football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men and women's tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994).

NCCU Chancellor Nelms (Left) and MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas (right), flap their wings to signify that the Eagles are flying home (Photos by Robert Lawson)

History: In 1969, a bold ad hoc group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, N.C., to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference. Dissected from these discussions, a steering and planning committee was formed to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions, and then construct a workshop to outline proposals. After adopting a program, seven institutions (Delaware State College, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University and South Carolina State College) agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Its major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards and with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The league agreed to seek Division I status for its sports. The conference was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971. In 1978, a milestone was reached when the MEAC selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. He had been preceded by three interim (part-time) commissioners: Dr. Leroy Walker (1971-74); who later had the distinction of serving as the President of the United States Olympic

Committee, the late Earl Mason (1974-75) and the late Dr. James Young (1975-78). Kenneth A. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in May of 1996. In July of 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. Longtime MEAC administrator Brenda H. McCoy served two stints as Interim Commissioner, one in 1996 (May-June) and again in 2002 (April-August). On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named the commissioner and has served in the position for seven years. The leagues' first expansion occurred in October 1979 when Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University were voted into the MEAC as new members. Original members Morgan State, North Carolina Central and Maryland Eastern Shore withdrew from the conference at the end of the 1979-80 fiscal year. Maryland Eastern Shore was readmitted in 1981 and Morgan State returned in 1984. Florida A&M opted to resign in 1984 but rejoined the conference in 1986. Coppin State College was granted admittance in 1985, becoming the ninth member institution.

The MEAC initiated cross country in 1980 and North Carolina A&T earned the inaugural men's crown. The first women's cross country championship took place a year later with Howard winning the first of its seven titles. Indoor Track and Field was also added in 1981 with South Carolina State capturing the men's title and Howard winning the women's crown. Tennis and golf returned as MEAC governed sports in 1981, after a five-year hiatus. South Carolina State won all seven of the league's golf championships from 19721983 before the sport was discontinued after the 1983 championship. Morgan State dominated the conference in wrestling winning 13 of 24 conference championships during the sports tenure from 1972 through 1995. Baseball, which began in 1972, was discontinued following the 1977 season. It was brought back as a MEAC governed sport along with women's volleyball in 1983. Women's softball became a MEAC sanctioned sport in 1992. Bowling was officially sanctioned as a MEAC governed sport in 1999. Before that season, the MEAC was the first conference to secure NCAA sanctioning for women's bowling by adopting the club sport prior to the 1996-97 school year.

The MEAC expanded again in the 1990's with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The final expansion occurred in 2007, with the addition of Winston-Salem State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was claswww.NCCUEaglePride.com
