2013-2014 SEASON PREVIEW NCCU LOOKS TO RETOOL AFTER FIRST 20-WIN SEASON AT DIVISION I LEVEL Eagles return three starters for 2013-14 campaign In his fifth season at the helm, North Carolina Central University head men’s basketball coach LeVelle Moton and his squad will be the hunted after a surprising 2012-13 campaign where many of the prognosticators around the MEAC (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) picked the Eagles seventh, but the maroon and gray ended the year in second place going 15-1 in league action and won 20 games for the first time at the NCAA Division I level - something Moton wasn’t necessarily surprised about. “With hard work and preparation, nothing for us internally was a surprise,” said Moton. “The only people who were surprised were the naysayers that picked us in the bottom-half of the league. I knew we could be special. To see us tied with Marquette with six minutes left. To me, that was the turning point in the year. That was an Elite Eight team and we were going toe-to-toe the entire 40 minutes.” The Eagles went on to drop that contest 75-66 on Dec. 29 in Milwaukee, Wis., but over the next month-and-ahalf the maroon and gray won its next 11 games to sit at 17-7 (10-0 MEAC) in the month of February. It seemed like that contest gave Moton’s squad all the confidence in the world. NCCU dropped only one more game the rest of the year behind the services of the top two returners on the 201314 squad, Jeremy Ingram (Charlotte, N.C.) and Emanuel Chapman (Raleigh, N.C.). The 22 wins were the most since the 1992-93 campaign (Moton’s freshman season at NCCU). Ingram moved into the starting lineup after returning redshirt senior Ebuka Anyaorah (Suwanee, Ga.) injured his foot six games into the season and he blossomed into one of the top players in the league. Ingram finished the regular season second in the MEAC in scoring at 15.7 points a game, sixth in free-throw percentage (79.8 percent), third in three-point percentage (39.4 percent), and fourth in three-pointers made (2.0 per game). The shooting guard scored a career-high 32 points against Bethune-Cookman on Feb. 11, and dropped-in 20 points or more eight times in his junior season. Ingram earned first team All-MEAC honors, was named the MEAC’s Most Valuable Player by CollegeInsider.com and was voted second team All-State by NCCSIA (North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association). Chapman was as spectacular as

ever manning the point for the maroon and gray, as he became just the second Eagle in the program’s history to record 400 career assists. He topped the MEAC averaging 5.8 helpers a game, was No. 1 in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.11- 180 assists/85 TOs), and recorded double-digit assists on eight occasions, including 13 in a win over Coppin State. He needs 10 assists to own the school record for career helpers. Chapman and Ingram’s contributions to the program at this point and what they could accomplish in their final year in the Bull City is something that Moton has not forgotten. “It’s great for both of these young men because these two did not have a ton of offers coming out of high school,” Moton said. “To see them remain loyal to the program and endure the growing pains and see their games evolve has been incredible to watch. It’s what life is all about.” Those two among a cast of Emanuel "Poobie" Chapman need 10 assists to others will be counted on for break the school's record for assists in a career. the Eagles to reach the 20(Red Rocket Photography) win mark again and compete for the MEAC crown. NCCU has seven student-athletes returning could never get back on the court.

Copeland started in 26 “Ebuka was sorely missed last year games and averaged 7.3 points a game and we’re glad to have him back for and grabbed 4.4 boards a contest. The one last run at his senior season,” redshirt junior scored in double figures said Moton. “He brings toughness, six times, including a season-high 18 experience, leadership, and solid points against 2013 NCAA Tournament perimeter play to this team, which we participant Southern. will need.” Senior Alfonzo Houston (Cleveland “Jay needs to have a very productive Heights, Ohio) could have the best season for us to be successful,” said opportunity to make an impact in his Moton. “Last year was technically his final season at NCCU as the 6-3 guard first experience with college basketball, came off the bench in all 31 games so there were going to be some growing and averaged 3.5 points per game. pains involved.

he can fill the void left by Ray Willis and show what he can really do on both ends of the floor.” The Eagles will have six seniors on the roster in the 2013-14 campaign, another one that could shine bright in his final season is Antonin Galaya (St. Martin, French West Indies), who came on strong in the late portion of the season. Galaya hit 21 threes on the year and developed a habit of hitting a big three-pointer to sway momentum over to the maroon and gray side. “Antonin struggled with his confidence and trying to learn a new system early last year,” said Moton. “Towards the end of the year, he began to understand what was asked of him and his play ascended. He’s a guy who could have a big year for us.” Junior forward Karamo Jawara (Bergen, Norway) is another key returner to the squad and it showed in the 2012-13 campaign when he missed a month with an injury. During that time, Moton and company saw what was missing without him in the lineup. When he was healthy Jawara contributed in so

many different ways, grabbing at least one board in 17 straight games or by scoring at least one point in 20 games in his sophomore season. “KJ is one of the smartest basketball players I’ve ever coached,” said Moton. “I’m excited to see how he progresses in his third season here at NCCU. He’s a leader for us on the floor and his game continues to evolve.” Of the five newcomers on the Eagles roster, redshirt freshman Juwan Moody (Pontiac, Mich.) has certainly waited the longest. Moody sat out last season and is ready to go, and according to Moton he brings a lot of positives to the table. “Juwan is a super young man that will bring toughness, quickness, and a great ability to knock down open shots,” Moton said. “I cannot wait to see him compete.” Dante Holmes, a 6-3 guard from Baltimore, Md., came to NCCU from Florida Gulf Coast University at the midway point of last year and will be available at the beginning of the second semester. He will be a sophomore on the floor, but during his time in Fort Myers, Fla., Holmes was one of the top rookies in the Atlantic Sun Conference, averaging 8.4 points a game with 11 starts. He shot 47 percent from the field and scored in double figures 11 times in his last 20 games at FGCU. The final three newcomers, Jordan Parks (Queens, N.Y.), Ramon Eaton (Sacramento, Calif.), and Reggie Groves (Raleigh, N.C.), will have to adjust quickly to Moton’s system for the Eagles to pick up from where they were last year. “It’s imperative that the newcomers to the team quickly become acclimated to the system and contribute from day one,” said Moton. “These three young men are extremely talented and the sky is the limit for them on this team.” Parks is an athletic 6-7 guard who played two seasons for the College of Central Florida, including a NJCAA national title in the 2012-13 campaign while averaging 10.8 points and 6.6 rebounds in 15.5 minutes a contest. “Jordan Parks is a winner,” said Moton. “He’s a national champion who understands what it takes to buy into the greater good of the team. He will give us the hybrid dynamic which is essential to success in the MEAC. His athleticism is off the charts and his defensive ability to guard all five positions will serve us well.” Standing at 6-8, Eaton will add more size, depth, and versatility to the Eagles frontcourt as he can step out and hit the three, shooting 31.1 percent from behind-the-arc at New Mexico Junior www.NCCUEaglePride.com

College last year. “Ramon is a former three-star recruit that possesses the unique ability of shooting, athleticism, and scoring the ball in a variety of ways,” said Moton. “His skill level is really advanced and we look forward to him contributing right away.” At 6-2, 195, Groves will bring more defensive toughness to the guard position for the Eagles and will be looked upon for leadership as well. He comes to NCCU after spending his college career at Canisius. Groves actually played for Moton at Sanderson High School until his senior year before transferring to Word of God. “I’ve known and coached Reggie since he was a kid,” said Moton. “He’s a combo guard that is physically strong and tough. He was a huge part of the championship teams we had at Sanderson and can hopefully bring those intangibles to the program. His leadership, defense, and scoring ability will be much needed.” Despite the 22 wins, many around the team know that an opportunity to make it to the big dance was missed with the early exit in the 2013 MEAC Tournament, as all four top seeds were ousted in the first three days, including the second-seeded Eagles who lost in disappointing fashion to arch-rival North Carolina A&T. The Aggies went on to win the tournament, something that has fueled this program since March.

2013-2014 SEASON PREVIEW

“We just have to maintain the focus and determination that allowed us to be successful,” said Moton. “This is a new team which means they must earn everyone’s respect. They cannot live off last year’s success in any shape or form.” Judging by the way this program has risen over the last few years, Moton and company will once again be in the thick of the MEAC race come March. This time around the Eagles hope to be dancing on Selection Sunday. “Early exit, late exit; they all hurt the same,” said Moton. “The goal is to enter, and we will not be content until we do that.”

THE SCHEDULE

The North Carolina Central University men’s basketball team will host 14 games inside the friendly confines of McDougald-McLendon Gym in head coach LeVelle Moton’s fifth season as the 2013-14 slate is complete, the program announced. The schedule includes six opponents that the Eagles have yet to face at the NCAA Division I level (Cincinnati, Campbell, Appalachian State, IUPUI, Maryland, and NJIT). Throughout the schedule, there are teams from 10 different conferences that are represented. “My overall thoughts on this year’s schedule is that it is really challenging, which is what I wanted,” said Moton. “Our philosophy is anywhere, any place, anytime.” The Eagles will tip off the season in the first of four games in the 2013 Global Sports Hoops Classic on the road against Cincinnati on Friday, Nov. 8 from Fifth Third Bank Arena. The Bearcats recently joined the American Athletic Conference after a period of time in the Big East Conference. This will mark NCCU’s first meeting with a team in that league. “Cincinnati is one of those premier programs in the country,” said Moton. “This will be a tough challenge for us in a hostile environment, basically straight out of the frying pan into the fire.” Three days later, the Eagles will begin their home slate with its fourth meeting against Johnson and Wales University at 7:00 p.m. on Nov. 11. NCCU is 3-0 all-time against JWU with an average margin of victory of 62.3 points. On Nov. 18 at 7:00 p.m. from the John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center in Buies Creek, N.C., the maroon and gray will battle the Camels of Campbell University in game number two of the Global Sports Hoops Classic. This will

take place from PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., as the Eagles make the 30-mile trip to battle the Wolfpack of NC State for the fourth time in program history. The last meeting took place in historic Reynolds Coliseum on Dec. 11, 2011 when the maroon and gray nearly upset the Pack, dropping a 65-60 decision. NC State owns a 3-0 lead in the series. Friday, Nov. 22 the Eagles battle their fifth straight in-state foe as the Mountaineers from Appalachian State travel to McDougald-McLendon Gym for a 7:00 p.m. tipoff in the final contest of the 2013 Global Sports Hoops Classic. This will mark the first-ever meeting between these two schools on the hardwood, while NCCU has battled only two SoCon schools (Davidson, Western Carolina) since making the move, sporting an 0-2 record. “It’s a great opportunity to play www.NCCUEaglePride.com

Campbell, NC State, and App State,” said Moton. “It will certainly help us with recruiting and it’s always great to take on teams in our own state to see where we stand.” Four days later, the Eagles host the Mighty Sabers of Barber-Scotia College on Nov. 26 at 7:00 p.m. These two programs last met on Nov. 26, 2011, as the Eagles cruised to the 10455 win. NCCU is 3-0 all-time against BSC. To begin the month of December, the Eagles will battle Old Dominion on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va. This is the second meeting between the Monarchs and the Eagles since the 2008-09 campaign when ODU outlasted NCCU 79-54 on Dec. 14, 2008. Four days later on Dec. 7, the maroon and gray make the trip up to Indianapolis, Ind. to take on IUPUI. This will mark the fourth meeting for the Eagles against a team from The Summit League, as NCCU is 1-2 alltime against the conference. Tipoff time from The Jungle is set for 3:05 p.m. Following an 11-day layoff, NCCU returns to the friendly-confines to take on the Eagles of Winthrop University on Dec. 18 at 7:00 p.m. The maroon and gray took down WU last year in Rock Hill 64-57 on Jan. 2 to even their record at 7-7 heading into the meat of conference play. The final game before the holiday break will see the maroon and gray head out to battle 2013 NCAA Final Four participant Wichita State on Sunday, Dec. 22 inside Charles Koch Arena in Wichita, Kan. Game time has not been set for that contest, but the Eagles hung tough with the Shockers in a 71-57 loss in the season-opener for both squads. This will mark the second time in NCCU’s young NCAA Division I history in which they have faced an opponent who competed in the previous year’s Final Four as the University of Florida was the defending National Champions when the Eagles took on the Gators in the 2007-08 campaign. “I call the Wichita State game a manhood game for us,” said Moton. “There are not any boys allowed in this one. It’s a very hostile environment and it will test our overall toughness.” Nine days later on Dec. 31 the Eagles will take on the Maryland Terrapins for the first time in program history. The Terps are in their final season as members of the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and will be heading to the Big Ten Conference

1:00 p.m. from the Spiro Sports Center. Wagner owns a 2-0 lead in the series, but each contest has come down to the wire, including last season’s 3836 defensive showdown in the Bull City. “As far as Wagner goes, we just have to finish better,” said Moton. “Both games we had opportunities to win but didn’t finish the way we would like to.” Hampton University comes to the Bull City to battle the Eagles in a nonconference affair on Tuesday, January 7 at 7:00 p.m. In the lone matchup last season, NCCU beat the Hampton 68-64 to clinch second place in the conference.

Great teams with great coaching and the talent level is second to none.” NCCU dives head first into the meat of conference play in the second game of its longest homestand on the year as the Eagles will take on Delaware State on Jan. 18 at 4:00 p.m. The maroon and gray took down the Hornets on the road last year 54-43 on Feb. 2.

Four days later on Wednesday, Jan. 22, the arch-rival Aggies of North Carolina A&T come to the Bull City for meeting No. 142 on the hardwood. NC A&T leads the all-time series 74-67, but the Eagles are 5-2 under Moton against the Aggies. Rounding out the last two games in the Eagles’ five game homestand are contests against Coppin State (Jan. 25 at 4:00 p.m.) and Morgan State (Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m.). After a two-game road stint that includes a Saturday, Feb. 1 meeting with Howard inside Burr Gymnasium at 4:00 p.m. and a Monday, Feb. 3 contest against Maryland Eastern Shore at 7:30 p.m. inside Hytche Arena, the Eagles will return home to take on Bethune-Cookman (Saturday, Feb. 8 at 4:00 p.m.) and Florida A&M (Monday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m.) From Feb 15 through Feb. 25, the maroon and gray will embark on a fourgame road trip, their longest of the year, beginning with a Saturday, Feb. 15 contest against South Carolina State at 4:00 p.m. from the Smith-Hammond-Middleton Memorial Center in Orangeburg, S.C. The Eagles will head down to Savannah, Ga., for a Monday night showdown with Savannah State on Feb. 17 at 8:00 p.m. from Tiger Arena. Saturday, Feb. 22, the Eagles head west to the Gate City of Greensboro, N.C., to take on the Aggies in the return match between the two rivals for a 6:00 p.m. tipoff from the Corbett Sports Center, with the final contest of the road trip taking place on in Newark, N.J., on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from the Fleisher Athletic Center.

During Moseley’s tenure at NCCU, the Eagles have turned the program into a contender at not only the MEAC level, but the mid-major level as well. NCCU has beaten teams like Western Illinois and Winthrop to name a few, while beating every team in the conference at least once. His scouting and in-game coaching is a major reason why the program has won double figure MEAC games every season he’s been at NCCU. Prior to coming to the Bull City, the East Carolina alumnus John Moseley was elevated from Director of Basketball operations to assistant coach prior to the start of the 2009-10 academic year. He rejoined the Pirate basketball program in June 2008 as the Director of Basketball Operations.

MOTON'S VISION: SUCCESS FOR EAGLES

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."

(Photo by Chuck Liddy- News & Observer) It's a direct reference -- one he borrowed 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." www.NCCUEaglePride.com

Determined to keep her boys from trouble, 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.


MOTON'S VISION: SUCCESS FOR EAGLES

Ron Williams, the Raleigh club's former 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.

grandmother and mother," he said. Now he has his own family. He married 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."

Giving back

LeVelle and his wife, Bridget,

People tend to like Moton, even other coaches. He's easygoing, quick to exchange 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

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."

with perfect 7-0 mark. Prior to that, NCCU had never finished an entire month with an unblemished record as a member of the NCAA’s Division I level, and the last time this feat was accomplished was in the 19992000 season when the Eagles won sixth straight games from Jan. 4 through Feb. 3. CHAPMAN NOW SECOND ALLTIME IN ASSISTS AT NCCU In his third season at NCCU, Emanuel “Poobie” Chapman has made a name for himself as a talented distributor and the record books have taken notice.

WHOSE HOUSE?? RAY’S HOUSE

In senior Ray Willis’s two visits to Moore Gymnasium, the home of the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman, the Atlanta, Ga. product was perfect from the line in two Eagle victories. In last season’s 81-79 win over the Wildcats on Feb. 6, 2012, Willis shot just 4-for-11 from the field but was 2-for-4 from three-point range. It was his 10-for-10 effort from the foul-line that propelled NCCU to the win. On Jan. 14, 2013, the 6-6 guard scored 24 of his 26 points in the second half where he went 5-for-5 from the field, 1-for-1 from behind-the-arc, and a stellar 13-for13 from the foul line. In two games inside that facility Willis is 23-for-23 and the Eagles are 2-0 in the last two trips to Daytona Beach, Fla. EAGLES TAKE FIRE OUT OF THE DRAGONS In NCCU’s 97-28 victory over Virginia University of Lynchburg, the Eagles held the visiting Dragons to 28 points on 23.1 percent shooting along with 24 turnovers. VUL went a paltry 1-for-13 (7.7 percent) from three-point range. The 28 points allowed by NCCU was lowest point total surrendered by a maroon and

gray squad since 1947 when the Eagles beat St. Augustine’s College 75-28.

He also ripped down eight rebounds and the Eagles hung with the Pokes from the Mountain West Conference. His 12-for-12 effort from the foul line against Southern University propelled the Eagles to the 59-55 win over the Jaguars where he ended the night with 20 points yet again, but nearly recorded his fifth double-double at NCCU with nine rebounds. Willis ended the showcase shooting 17for-17 from the foul line and 3-for6 (50.0 percent) from three-point range as NCCU ended the three game tournament with a 1-2 record.

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

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

SAM JONES

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

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 studentathlete academic counselor at North Carolina A&T State University before Ingrid Wicker-McCree has taken the NCCU returning to her Athletics Department from the Division II hometown to begin level to Division I, her vision will be a key her NCCU tenure in factor in the Eagles' success at the highest August 1994. level of amateur sports. 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, Quinton, and Sydney.

“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

102

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 studentathlete or a prospect.


MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) begins its 42nd year of intercollegiate competition heading into the 2011-12 academic school year. Located in Norfolk, Va., the MEAC is made up of 13 outstanding historically black institutions across the Atlantic coastline: Bethune-Cookman University, Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University, Savannah State University and South Carolina State University. The MEAC sponsors 15 Division I (FCS) sports with automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason competition in baseball, bowling, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and field, softball, and volleyball. MEAC student-athletes excel on and off the field and several have been recognized on ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America and All-District teams. The MEAC awards two post-graduate scholarships of $5,000 each annually to one male and one female student-athlete who have excelled academically and athletically and are in their final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility and competition under MEAC and NCAA regulations. 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. From these discussions, they formed a steering and planning committee to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions and construct a workshop to outline proposals. After selecting a proposal and 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. Their major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The conference 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, the MEAC reached a milestone when it selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in May of 1996. In July 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named commissioner and has served in the position for nine years. The conference’s first expansion occurred in October 1979 when Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University were www.NCCUEaglePride.com

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 expanded again in the 1990s with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The conference expanded once again in 2007, adding Winston-Salem State University. Following the 2009-10 academic/ athletic season, however, Winston-Salem State withdrew from the conference and returned to Division II. On July 1, 2010, the MEAC made its most recent expansion with the admittance of North Carolina Central and Savannah State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified as a Division I conference by the NCAA. Prior to that year, the conference operated as a Division II conference. The month after it achieved Division I status, the MEAC received an automatic qualification to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. Currently, the conference 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’s and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994). 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 MEACgoverned sports in 1981 after a five-year hiatus. South Carolina State won all seven of the conference’s golf championships from 1972-1983 before the sport was discontinued after the 1983 championship. 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 MEACsanctioned sport in 1992. Bowling was officially sanctioned as a MEAC sport in 1999. The MEAC was the

103


MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HISTORY first conference to secure NCAA sanctioning for women’s bowling by adopting the club sport prior to the 1996-97 school year. SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS The MEAC has enjoyed tremendous athletic success over the years. In 2008, Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) defeated Arkansas State 4-2 to win the NCAA Women’s Bowling National Championship, a first for the conference and institution. With the victory, Lady Hawks’ Head Coach Sharon Brummell became the first female head coach to win an NCAA bowling title. The Lady Hawks repeated the feat in 2011 to win the team’s second NCAA title. During the same season, UMES won the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Team Championships (ITC), becoming the first team to win two national championships during the same season. In men’s basketball, UMES became the first historically black college/university (HBCU) to participate in the 1974 National Invitational Tournament (NIT). The Hawks defeated Manhattan, 84-81, in the first round before falling to Jacksonville by two points in the second round. Before the Jacksonville loss, UMES had the best record in the nation at 27-1. That same year, Morgan State won the NCAA College Division II National Championship and junior center Marvin “The Human Eraser” Webster was named the Division II Player of the Year. The 1981 tournament champion Howard Bison became the first MEAC team to play in the NCAA Division I Basketball Championship. Coppin State and Hampton made history in the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament with first-round victories. The No. 15 seeded Coppin State Eagles defeated No. 2 South Carolina in 1997, and No. 15 seeded Hampton defeated No. 2 Iowa State in 2001. ESPN Sports Center ranked both victories ranked among the Top 10 greatest tournament upsets of all time In women’s basketball, South Carolina State won the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) Division II National Championship in 1979. In 1982, Howard became the first MEAC women’s team to participate in the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship. South Carolina State earned the conference’s bid in 1983 and became the first MEAC team, men or women, to win an opening-round game in the NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament. In 2010, The North Carolina A&T Lady Aggies defeated Wake Forest and Charlotte before falling to Miami in the third round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT). North Carolina A&T became the first MEAC team and historically black

104

college/university to win two consecutive basketball games in a national postseason tournament. The No. 13 Hampton Lady Pirates faced No. 4 Kentucky in the 2011 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament. The 13th seed was the highest seed earned by a MEAC women’s basketball program since the inception of the 64-team bracket in 1994. In football, the MEAC was instrumental in constructing the Freedom Bowl All-Star Classic, the Heritage Bowl and the Gold Bowl. Prior to Division I competition, the MEAC competed in the Gold Bowl, held in Richmond, Va., which matched the MEAC champion against the champion of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA). South Carolina State represented the MEAC in 1976 and 1979, winning both outings over Winston-Salem State and Norfolk State respectively. In addition to the 1976 and 1979 crowns, South Carolina State won MEAC football titles in 197478, 1980-83, 1994, 2004, 2008 and 2009. South Carolina State won MEAC football titles in 1974-78, 1980-83,1994, 2004, 2008 and 2009. They were also named cochampions along with Bethune-Cookman and Florida A&M during the 2010 season. During the 1981 and 1982 seasons, South Carolina State reached the second round of the I-AA championships. On the track, Hampton’s Francenca McCorory set an American record in the 400m dash with a time of 50.54 and defended her national indoor title at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships. McCorory, a two-time All-American and three-time MEAC indoor champion in the 400m dash, became the first back-toback NCAA indoor 400m champion since Suziann Reid of Texas (1998 and 1999). McCorory was named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I National Athlete of the Year for the 2010 Indoor Track and Field season. In outdoor track and field, North Carolina Central won the first three MEAC titles. The quartet of Melvin Bassett, Robert Ouko, Julius Sang and Larry Black set the world record in the sprint medley relay with a time of 38.19 in the 1972 Olympics. The Eagles finished fourth in the 1974 NCAA Division I Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championship. MEAC women began outdoor track and field conference competition in 1980. In 1982, South Carolina State won the AIAW Division II Outdoor Track and Field National Championship. The MEAC has showcased more than 27 athletes in the Olympics. Among them, 11 have earned medals during the Summer Games. www.NCCUEaglePride.com

In 2003, Florida A&M became the first MEAC school to win a volleyball match in the NCAA Championship, with a firstround win over Winthrop. In 2004, the Lady Rattlers became the first historically black college/university to rank in the Top 25 of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) national poll. South Carolina State’s women’s tennis team earned the conference’s first Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) ranking in a 2005 poll, reaching No. 72. In softball, Bethune-Cookman earned the conference’s first-ever at-large bid to the NCAA Softball Championship in 2005. The Lady Wildcats defeated Florida, Central Florida and South Florida in the Florida Regional to become the first MEAC school to win an NCAA Division I Softball Regional. Bethune-Cookman ended the 2005 season with the conference’s first-ever rankings in the final softball polls, reaching No. 18 in the NFCA/USA Today Coaches poll and No. 23 in the USA Softball/ESPN.com Poll. Florida A&M was the first MEAC baseball team to advance to NCAA postseason play in 1994. The Rattlers took on Southeastern Louisiana in a best of three play-in series, falling after two games, 11-10 and 8-7. During the 2002 campaign, BethuneCookman advanced to the Gainesville Regional and became the first MEAC team to win in the NCAA Tournament with a 7-4 victory over Florida International. The Wildcats had previously lost to Florida in their first game 13-1, and the team was eliminated from the regional with a 2110 loss in its second matchup against the Gators.
