Two years ago, Bezold’s team posted a 21-9 record and advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Division II Midwest Region Tournament. Bezold, who spent 14 years as an assistant coach at NKU, led his Norse to a third straight Great Lakes Valley Conference East Division championship during the 2008-09 season.

basketball program. He was selected as the head coach on April 22, 2004. With Bezold serving as the team’s defensive coordinator, NKU won NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region championships in 1996 and ‘97. The Norse also finished as NCAA Division II national runnerup in those two seasons. For five games during the 200102 season, Bezold temporarily took over as head coach when Shields was sidelined with back problems. NKU posted a 3-2 record with Bezold guiding the team. Bezold also served as NKU’s women’s tennis head coach from 1996-2000, and he led the Norse to GLVC championships in both 1998 and 1999. Bezold was twice named GLVC Coach of the Year, and he guided NKU to a pair of NCAA Division II Tournament appearances in 1999 and 2000. Bezold is a 1990 graduate of Viterbo (Wis.) College. He played four years at Viterbo and helped the V-Hawks advance to the NAIA national tournament twice. Bezold was team captain as a senior. A 1984 graduate of Covington Holy Cross High School, Bezold earned three letters in basketball for the Indians. He also lettered three years in baseball. Bezold and his wife, Lisa, have two children, Tyler and Abigail. They reside in Taylor Mill, Ky.


The Assistant Coaches KURT YOUNG Kurt Young is in his fourth season as the top assistant coach at Northern Kentucky University. Young arrived at NKU after spending three years as the top assistant coach at Arkansas Tech, which posted a 23-9 record in 2008-09. A 1990 graduate of East Carter High School, Young earned four letters in basketball and was a three-time all-district and an honorable mention all-state selection. He then played one season at Centre College before transferring to Morehead State University, where he did not play basketball. Young was an assistant coach and an assistant athletic director at Hawaii Pacific in 2005-06. Before Hawaii Pacific, he spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Georgetown (Ky.) and three seasons as the head basketball coach at Labette County (Kan.) Community College.

The former Loveland High School standout also received his master’s degree from West Virginia. Schappell was a member of the 2010 West Virginia coaching staff and helped the Mountaineers advance to the NCAA Division I Final Four. West Virginia earned berths in the NCAA Tournament each of Schappell’s three seasons as an assistant to head coach Bob Huggins. “Kevin knows our program about as well as anyone, and he is a great addition to our coaching staff,” NKU head coach Dave Bezold said. “He’s been at one of the elite basketball programs in Division I, so he’s brought that experience here to NKU and given us a different perspective on many things.” While a player at NKU, Schappell scored 868 career points and was named honorable mention All-Great Lakes Valley Conference during the 2005-06 season.

DARRIS NICHOLS Former West Virginia University standout Darris Nichols is in his second year as an assistant coach at NKU.

He later played professionally overseas before returning to serve as a graduate assistant at West Virginia. “Darris has been associated with one of the nation’s top programs in West Virginia as a player and a coach, and he is a great addition to our staff,” NKU head coach Dave Bezold said. “He was an outstanding point guard in the Big East, and he knows how to win.” 2012-13 NKU Norse Basketball Guide

2011-12 NKU FLASHBACK

NORSE SHOCK HOOPS WORLD WITH LAST-SECOND TREY

JONES MAKES FINAL SECONDS UNBEARABLE FOR WEST VIRGINIA IN STUNNING NKU VICTORY

NKU’s 77-74 upset over powerful West Virginia shocked the crowd in Morgantown, W.Va. (Tim Downer) MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The man nicknamed “Bear” made the final seconds unbearable for West Virginia University basketball fans in his debut for Northern Kentucky University. Eshaunte “Bear” Jones etched his name into NKU basketball lore by draining a 25-footer with 1.1 seconds remaining to give the Norse a stunning 77-74 victory over West Virginia in an exhibition game. In doing so, Jones ruined the night for most of the 7,288 fans who had arrived at the WVU Coliseum expecting see the Mountaineers roll over the Division II visitors. NKU entered that contest winless (0-18) in exhibition games against Division I programs. Jones changed that with a clutch shot against a perennial national power. Jones, a 6-foot-4 junior who played his first two collegiate seasons at Nebraska, missed NKU’s first exhibition game against Marshall earlier in the week while recovering from an injury. “What can you say, except that Bear isn’t afraid to step up and take a huge shot in a big moment?” NKU head coach Dave Bezold said. “He has a chance to really help us be a very good team this season. We have a number of new guys still adjusting to our system, but we expect a lot from Bear, and he really delivered against a great West Virginia program.” 2012-13 NKU Norse Basketball Guide

The following story was printed in The Kentucky Post on Nov. 13, 1971, the day after Northern Kentucky State College’s first-ever basketball game against Calvary (Ky.). At this time, NKSC had no gym and played its home games at area high schools. The first game was played at old Newport High School’s gym on Columbia Street. BY ANDY COX Kentucky Post sports writer NEWPORT, Ky. - Mote Hils was as happy as a kid who just got a new puppy for Christmas. The veteran coachʼs eyes were sparkling as he received congratulations from well-wishers following Northern Kentucky Stateʼs rather auspicious 109-65 winning debut over little Calvary College at Newport High gym last night. What Hilsʼ charged-up Norsemen did to the country boys from Letcher, Ky., was almost sad to see. Only a masochist would have enjoyed the one-sided rout. Even 46

2012-13 NKU Norse Basketball Guide


NORSE MEN’S BASKETBALL HISTORICAL FACTS

Hils had trouble not falling asleep on his bench. “It was an ideal opener as far as weʼre concerned,” said Hils, the man who put the pizzazz in Covington Catholic High School basketball. “We made some mistakes… thatʼs typical of an opener,” he said, “but we also did some things real well out there, too. “If we can get that ball off the boards, weʼll be okay,” continued Hils with an embarrassed smile. “Weʼll have a good season. I promise we will be an interesting team to watch.” Calvary, now 1-2 on the season, was close only once. That was when the ball went up in the center at 8 p.m. Husky Dan Maurer drove for a layup to start the NKS scoring machine off and perking, but the Chargersʼ Barry Hall tied it on his patented long jumper. After that, it was all over. The baby Norsemen played the ungracious host much to their fansʼ delight and sent the Calvary boys back to Letcher with a real Viking funeral. Skinny Marvin Johnson, the Cincinnatian who crossed the river for more playing time, looked impressive with 13 points and 14 rebounds before he was substituted for three-quarters of the way into the first half. About the only anxious moment Hils spent was near the end of the game when his team was trying to hang up 100 points on the scoreboard. James Perdue hit on a layup to give NKS a 99-59 lead. The next time down the court, Perdue had an easy jumper from the foul line, but much to the chagrin of the crowd which stayed around for the post-mortem, the ball rolled off the back of the flange. The reed-thin freshman from Cincinnati Hughes made up for that miss, however, seconds later when he sank a short jumper from the left side to put the Norsemen over the century mark. Only a bit of baffling strategy in the one-sided contest came with just two seconds remaining in the game. Calvary coach William Holbrook called for a timeout. “(I just) wanted to make sure we had the ball for one last shot,” he said firmly in the locker room after the game. Holbrook, like his little band of basketball players, was highly impressed with the brand new Norsemen. “They sure are a lot better than Steed,” said Holbrook. Steed had walloped his Crusaders in their opener last week. Holbrook not only had his problems on the court, but he was also wondering where his starting guard, Sam Doyle, had ended up. “We all drove up in different cars,” said a team manager later. “I think Doyle mightʼve had car trouble.” On the other side of the locker room wall, Hils was scratching his head, too. One of his players, Scotty Derkson, hadnʼt showed, either. “I donʼt know where he is,” mumbled Hils, still on cloud nine, at least for the moment. The Norsemen will have to come back to earth this Monday night when they travel to Pikeville. “Theyʼre a good team. Strong and rough,” said Hils.

DYNAMIC DUO LEADS NKU TO FIRST NCAA TOURNEY BERTH

N

KU’s 1977-78 team featured a dynamic scoring tandem in Dan Doellman (17.0 points per game) and Pat Ryan (16.1 points per game). Doellman, shown on the left taking a shot against Florida Southern on Jan. 6, 1978, during NKU’s 73-67 win at Lakeland, Fla., also averaged 6.3 rebounds per contest as the Norsemen posted a 20-8 record. Ryan, pictured on the right during NKU’s game against Akron on Feb. 24, 1978, made a team-leading 102 free throws that season. Ryan was outstanding at creating shots off the dribble and taking the ball to the basket for layups. He also drew many fouls because of his ability to drive inside and converted 80.3 percent of his free throws in 1977-78. That duo led the Norsemen to their first-ever NCAA Division II Tournament in 1977-78. NKU jumped to a No. 4 national ranking in the Division II poll in February and also knocked off Division I opponent Xavier for the first time in history. Along the way, the Norsemen posted a 10-game winning streak - the first double-digit string of victories in the program’s history.

NKU OFFENSIVE STALWARTS PULL OFF RARE FEAT IN ‘88-89

C

ollege basketball teams rarely have two players average at least 20 points per game during the same season. In most cases, a go-to performer might average the 20 points or more per contest, but it’s quite unusual for a second player on the same team to also score at that level. During the 1988-89 season, however, NKU had a pair of standouts who accomplished the feat of averaging at least 20 points per game. NKU’s Derek Fields (pictured on the left) averaged 23.7 points per game that season and was named Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Year. The Norsemen also featured high-scoring Chris Wall (pictured on the right), who poured in 20.5 points per contest in 1988-89 as NKU posted a 17-11 record under first-year head coach Ken Shields. In their final game at NKU on March 4, 1989, Fields and Wall pulled off another rare feat as the Norsemen posted a 124-118 win over Indianapolis in Regents Hall. Fields poured in 35 points in that victory, while Wall scored 30. It is also the last time two NKU players scored at least 30 points in a game.

NKU’S ‘FLY’ SETS RECORD IN OT VICTORY AGAINST KWC ON THE

FLY

NKU’s Greg “Fly” Phelia (22) looks for an opening against Kentucky Wesleyan on Jan. 18, 1992. Phelia poured in a school-record 43 points to lead the Norse to a 114109 double-overtime win against the visiting Panthers. The junior guard buried eight shots from 3point range in that game to set a Norse record that would be broken several years later. Phelia was 15for-21 from the field and forced a second overtime period by hitting a trey while being fouled in the closing seconds of the first overtime. His 43-point performance would remain No. 1 in school history until Jan. 2, 2004, when Mike Kelsey poured in 50 points against Indianapolis.

I

f Kentucky Wesleyan had just allowed Greg “Fly” Phelia to shoot an uncontested 3-pointer in the final seconds of the first overtime, the visiting Panthers would have left Regents Hall with a win over Northern Kentucky University on Jan. 18, 1992. That’s because Kentucky Wesleyan owned a fourpoint lead, and even a trey would not have done the trick of forcing a second overtime period. Phelia, however, was able to draw a foul from Kentucky Wesleyan defender Kenneth Martin while launching a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the first overtime. The ball found net with just eight seconds left, Phelia converted the free throw to send the game into another extra session, and NKU eventually pulled out an incredible 114-109 upset over Kentucky Wesleyan in two overtimes. By the time that afternoon ended, Phelia had poured in a school-record 43 points as NKU upset the powerful Panthers. Phelia - nicknamed “Fly” - was 8-for-12 from 3-point range and finished 15-for-21 from the field as the Norse found a way to outscore their Great Lakes Valley Conference rival. The eight 3-pointers made by Phelia were also a school record at that time. Phelia’s 43-point performance allowed him to break the previous NKU single-game scoring record of 39 points, a mark shared at that time by Richard Derkson, Brady Jackson, Derek Fields and David Marshall. Derkson had established the record in 1972 with a 39-point outburst against Rose-Hulman, while Jackson, Fields and Marshall would eventually tie that mark. The 43-point outburst by Phelia would stay No. 1 in school history until Jan. 2, 2004, when Mike Kelsey scored 50 points against Indianapolis.

NKU SHOWS THE WRIGHT STUFF, ENDS FINDLAY STREAK

N

KU has recorded many huge victories on the basketball court, but, given the situation and the importance of the game, this one ranks as one of the biggest wins in Norse history. NKU faced off against top-seeded Findlay on March 11, 2007, in the semifinals of the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Regional at Findlay, Ohio. The Oilers had won 59 consecutive games at home entering that contest, the longest streak in the nation at any level of college basketball. The Norse ended that streak, though, with a 60-56 win over Findlay. Steven Wright (pictured on the left) scored 18 points and gave NKU the lead for good (57-56) with a breakaway dunk with 1:59 left in the game. Anthony Teague and Billy Finnell (pictured on the right) each scored 11 points for NKU, which shot 56.1 percent from the field to pull off the upset. In the first round, played 24 hours earlier, NKU posted a 73-68 win over Drury. Wright poured in a game-high 26 points to lead the Norse, setting up the showdown with Findlay. NKU finished as regional runner-up to Grand Valley State and owned a 24-9 record.

With 2.5 seconds remaining in the NCAA Division II national championship game against Cal State Bakersfield, the Norse trailed 57-56 but had the ball underneath their own basket.

NORSE MEN’S BASKETBALL HISTORY TIMELINE A year earlier, Listerman had also taken a pass from his younger brother to score the winning basket against Bakersfield in the NCAA Division II national quarterfinals. Was history about to repeat itself on the same exact court? Against the same team? This time for the national championship? Not this time. Listerman’s jumper fell short, and Bakersfield escaped with a 57-56 win. It was the Roadrunners’ third national championships of the 1990s, and the setback ended NKU’s season at 30-5 - the best record in school history. Kebu Stewart finished with 18 points and 21 rebounds to lead Bakersfield. Michael Jackson also collected a double-double for the Roadrunners with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

NORSE COACHING HISTORY

Mote Hils (1971-80) 119-118 record (.502), 9 years

Mike Beitzel (1980-88) 126-95 record (.570), 8 years

Ken Shields (1988-2004) 306-170 record (.643), 16 years

Dave Bezold (2004-present) 161-79 record (.671), 8 years AUSPICIOUS DEBUT: NKU head coach Dave Bezold (left) is pictured roaming the sidelines in Rupp Arena on Nov. 3, 2004. That exhibition game against Kentucky marked Bezold’s debut on the NKU sideline as head coach. NKU built an early eight-point lead against UK, and the Norse stayed with the powerful Wildcats for most of the game in the first-ever meeting between the two schools in men’s basketball. UK eventually pulled away for a 91-73 win before 18,824 fans, at that time the largest crowd to ever watch NKU basketball.

The Regents Hall record (1972-2009) Regents Hall exemplified the “friendly confines” concept for many years, as the NKU men’s program compiled 380 wins against just 134 losses in that facility. The best year for an NKU team on its home floor was in 1982-83, when the men’s team compiled a 17-0 home record en route to a 22-7 NAIA mark. NKU posted perfect Regents Hall records four times – once under head coach Mote Hills (11-0 in 1977-78), the 17-0 mark posted by coach Mike Beitzel, and twice under head coach Ken Shields (13-0 in 1994-95 and 14-0 in 1999-2000). Shields is the all-time winningest men’s basket-

ball coach in Regents Hall, both in terms of victories and winning percentage. In 16 seasons, Shields compiled a 170-53 record in the facility, including a remarkable 121-16 record over his final 10 seasons. Regents Hall was built in 1972 as a multi-purpose facility housing basketball and volleyball. The Bank of Kentucky Center (9,400 seats) became the new home for NKU basketball in time for the 200809 season. NKU did play twice in Regents Hall in 2009, the final two times the Norse would host basketball games in that facility. The NKU volleyball team plays all of its home matches in Regents Hall.

2012-13 NKU Norse Basketball Guide


NKU AGAINST DIVISION I OPPONENTS Going into the 2012-13 campaign, Northern Kentucky is 6-24 all-time against NCAA Division I opponents in regular-season games.* The six wins were against Xavier (1978 and 1979), Eastern Kentucky (1982 and 1983), Evansville (1983) and Tennessee State (1984). NKU has not met a Division I opponent in a regularseason game since Dec. 10, 2005, when the Norse dropped a 65-46 decision at Brigham Young. *This counts only schools that were fully Division I at the time of the game as many reclassiďŹ ed after playing Northern Kentucky during the early years of the program. Several schools were also in transition from the small-college ranks to NCAA Division I membership during the 1970s when competing against Northern Kentucky (example: Tennessee State declared for Division I status prior to the 1977-78 academic year, but the Tigers did not play enough Division I opponents to qualify as a full-edged member that season).

NORTHERN KENTUCKY VS. NATIONALLY RANKED TEAMS - 1972-2012 The Associated Press began conducting a poll for the college division of men’s basketball on Jan. 5, 1961. The rankings consisted of colleges and universities that were members of NCAA college division and/or NAIA. A panel of sportswriters and sports broadcasters voted for the top 10 teams from 1961 through the final poll of the 1967-68 season. The poll was expanded to a Top 20 from 1968-69 through 1970-71, then reverted back to a Top 10 for the two seasons that followed. In the 1973-74 and 1974-75 seasons, the poll was extended to rank the top 15 teams. The Associated Press poll was discontinued after the 1974-75 season after the NCAA split the college division into Division II and III. At that time, the NCAA took over the compilation of the weekly poll. The chairmen of each of the eight NCAA Division II regions ranked the top 15 teams starting with the 1975-76 season, and then expanded it to 20 teams in the 1980-81 season. The NCAA continued to conduct the poll until the end of the 1996-97 season. Starting in the 1997-98 season, Division II Bulletin took over the poll and ranked the top 25 teams in NCAA Division II. That continued until the duties of conducting the poll were shifted to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division II Congress after the 2003-04 season. 1972-73 #8 Kentucky State 90, Northern Kentucky 68 (H) 1973-74 #3 Tennessee State 90, Northern Kentucky 74 (A) #3 Tennessee State 69, Northern Kentucky 63 (H) #1 UT-Chattanooga 92, Northern Kentucky 85 (A) #4 Ky.

Reclassification to Division I athletics is a four-year process that began this past July for NKU. During this four-year period, NKU will not be eligible for NCAA championships. Following the four years, NKU will become a full Division I member.

NKU MAKES MOVE TO NCAA DIVISION I, JOINS ATLANTIC SUN CONFERENCE IN 2012-13 HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Exactly 14,636 days later, after a humble beginning in a now-defunct high school gymnasium in 1971, Northern Kentucky University finally joined big-time college athletics. NKU announced on Dec. 8, 2011, it had accepted an invitation to join the Atlantic Sun Conference and would begin reclassification to NCAA Division I status in athletics during the 2012-13 academic year. What many had wondered about for years - NKU moving up to Division I – had finally become a reality. The NKU Board of Regents voted unanimously to accept the invitation from the Atlantic Sun Conference and reclassify the Norse athletics program to the NCAA Division I level. “This day has been a long time in the making,” said NKU President James Votruba. “Today we begin a new era not just for our athletics program, but for our institution and our region. Division I athletics will help position the university regionally and nationally in a way that otherwise would not be possible. “We’ve said for several years that we would make this move when we could field competitive Division I teams without compromising other critical university priorities,” he said. “The other important component was to find a group of peer institutions that share our aspirations. The A-Sun is a great fit for us. The league has a dynamic membership of large and small institutions, public and private. All share a deep commitment to academic achievement and athletic success.” In front of an enthusiastic crowd in The Bank of Kentucky Center after the formal press conference, NKU announced the decision to move to Division I status. The move was met with loud cheering, thunderous applause and overwhelming appreciation from a crowd that had waited for years to hear the news. Not bad for a program that was born on Nov. 12, 1971, when then-Northern Kentucky State College met Calvary (Ky.) College at old Newport High School’s ‘Cats Den for the first-ever athletic contest. At that time, NKSC had no home facility in which to play basketball games, as Regents Hall would not be ready for another year. On Dec. 8, NKU made its announcement inside The Bank of Kentucky Center, a 9-4,00-seat arena that is already being called the finest basketball facility in the Atlantic Sun Conference. NKU officially became the 10th member of the Atlantic Sun on July 1, 2012, and its athletic teams began competing as Division I programs playing full Atlantic Sun Conference schedules this season. Reclassification to Division I athletics is a four-year process that began this past July for NKU. During this four-year period, NKU will not be eligible for NCAA championships. Following the four years, NKU will become a full Division I member.
