E

ntering its 62nd year, the Ohio ValleyConference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles (Turkey) Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially. During times of racial segregation, league member Morehead State became one of the first non-traditionally black mid-southern institutions to accept a black student. In 1958, Marshall Banks earned athletically-related aid at Morehead, which signed a second black athlete, Howard Murphy, a year later. In 1961, Murphy earned all-conference recognition as a halfback in football. With racial barriers broken, the rest of the institutions in the league began to provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. The first Division I-AA football playoff (which is now known as the Football Championship Subdivision) was held in 1978 with only four teams, which is the only year through present day that the OVC did not field a playoff representative. In 1979, four of the nation’s top teams were invited to the playoffs, and two of them - Eastern Kentucky and Murray State - were from the OVC. Eastern Kentucky would go on to win the national championship in each 1979 and 1982. Football wasn’t the only sport in which the OVC was quickly gaining respect. In 1955, the OVC became only the second six-member league nationally to earn an automatic bid to the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, which, at that time, was limited to only 24 participants. The Conference quickly proved worthy of that bid, as Morehead State defeated Marshall (107-92) and Wayne State (95-84) in the 1956 tournament. Fifteen years later, former OVC member Western Kentucky became the first and only Conference team to reach the Final Four. The Hilltoppers defeated Jacksonville, Kentucky and Ohio State before losing to Villanova in double overtime. WKU went on to finish in third place after beating Kansas 77-75 in the consolation game. Since that time, the OVC has recorded some of the biggest upsets in the history of the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps the most famous moment came in 1987, when Austin Peay came from fourth place in the regular season to win the OVC Tournament and earn the league’s automatic bid. The Governors drew powerful Illinois, and were such big underdogs, that ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale promised to stand on his head if APSU won the game. After a 68-67 victory over the Illini, and a narrow 90-87 overtime loss to eventual Final Four participant Providence in the second round, Vitale made good on his promise in a visit to Clarksville two months later. Murray State added to the OVC’s string of upsets in 1988 when it knocked off 14th-ranked North Carolina State, 78-75. The Racers’ M&M Boys - Jeff Martin and Don Mann - combined for 39 points in the win. MSU nearly went on to the Sweet 16 that year, losing to eventual national champion Kansas, 61-58. A bank shot by Mann that would’ve given the Racers a one-point lead rolled off the rim with three seconds left. In 1990 as a No. 16 seed, Murray State took No. 1 seed Michigan State into overtime before falling 75-71; that game still marks the closest a No. 16 seed has come to knocking off a No. 1 in men’s tournament action. More recently, Murray State has dominated the OVC Tournament, reaching the championship game every year in the 1990’s. The Racers’ 13 OVC Tournament Championships are the most among all OVC schools. After former member Middle Tennessee State won a first round game in 1989, the league had a drought as no other OVC team won a NCAA Tournament game for the next 19 years. But Morehead State, coming off a thrilling double overtime OVC Tournament victory over Austin Peay, topped Alabama State 58-43 in the Opening Round game at Flyer Arena in Dayton,

Ohio. The game was played in front of an Opening Round record crowd of 11,346; that crowd included many MSU fans who made the three hour drive from Morehead for the game. The Eagles season would come to three days later when they lost to No. 1 overall seed Louisville, despite playing the Cardinals close for a majority of the game. Through its 61 years, 12 teams have won or shared the league’s regular season men’s basketball title. Murray State heads the list with a Conferencerecord 20 outright or shared basketball crowns. Other past champions include former member Western Kentucky (19), Morehead State (9), Austin Peay (8), Eastern Kentucky (6), Tennessee Tech (5), former member Middle Tennessee (5), Tennessee State (2), former member East Tennessee State (2), Southeast Missouri State (1), UT Martin (who won its first in 2008-09) and former member Akron (1). Among the coaching greats in men’s basketball have been Western Kentucky’s E.A. Diddle, who retired with 759 victories and 10 OVC titles; John Oldham, who was a member of the very first All-OVC squad and went on to win seven OVC crowns during his coaching tenure at Tennessee Tech and Western Kentucky; Paul McBrayer, who guided Eastern Kentucky to 219 wins and three OVC crowns; and Cal Luther, who is the only person in Conference history to win men’s basketball Coach of the Year honors at two league schools - Murray State and UT Martin. Current Austin Peay head coach Dave Loos ended the 2008-09 season with 314 victories, the most all-time at Austin Peay and second most in OVC history (only five wins behind Luther). There have been an equal number of great players including Western Kentucky’s Clem Haskins, who is the only three-time OVC Player of the Year. Several players have won OVC Player of the Year honors twice: Western Kentucky’s Jim McDaniels (1969-70 and 1970-71), Murray State’s Les Taylor (1971-72, 1972-73), Jeff Martin (1987-88, 1988-89), Popeye Jones (1989-90, 1990-91) and Marcus Brown (1994-95, 1995-96), Austin Peay’s Otis Howard (1976-77, 1977-78), Middle Tennessee’s Jerry Beck (1980-81, 1981-82), Akron’s Joe Jakubick (1982-83, 1983-84), Tennessee State’s Carlos Rogers (1992-93, 1993-94) and UT Martin’s Lester Hudson (2007-08, 2008-09). In 2007-08, UT Martin guard Lester Hudson became the first men’s Division I player to record a quadruple-double in a game, when he registered 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a victory over Central Baptist College. Hudson, who ranked fourth in scoring nationally as a junior, returned for his senior season in 2008-09 and was second nationally in scoring (behind Davidson’s Stephen Curry) at 27.5 points a contest. Hudson earned numerous honors (including OVC Player of the Year and OVC Male Athlete of the Year in each 2008 and 2009 and All-American status from several outlets) before being drafted by the Boston Celtics with the No. 58 pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. Hudson became the first draft pick for the league since 2004 and only the third pick of the last decade for the OVC. In the late 1970s, women’s athletics began somewhat of a rebirth on the national scene as the NCAA began sponsoring and marketing women’s sports. Recognizing the need to provide increased opportunities for female athletes, the OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volleyball added over the next four years. Those sports were initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. Women’s basketball in the OVC has been dominated by Tennessee Tech, which has won or shared 16 regular-season titles and owns nine OVC Tournament crowns. In fact, the Golden Eagles have reached the championship game of the OVC Tournament 19 times in the past 28 years. Although Tennessee Tech remains the standard-bearer, four other teams have won 12 of the last 16 OVC Tournaments. Murray State became the latest program to add its name to the list, capturing its first OVC Tournament title in 2008. Austin Peay leads the quartet with six crowns, including four straight from 2000-03 and the 2009 title, while Tennessee State, Eastern Kentucky and Southeast Missouri each have won titles during that span. Several coaches have made their mark in the relatively short history of OVC women’s basketball. Former Tennessee Tech coach Marynell Meadors posted an amazing 363-139 (72.3%) record at Tech, becoming the first woman in NCAA or AIAW history to win 300 games at the same institution, while former Tennessee State skipper Teresa Phillips earned National Coach of the Year honors from USA Today in 1990 for turning around the Lady Tigers’ program before going on to lead TSU to the NCAA Tournament in 1994 and 1995. Tennessee Tech coach Bill Worrell capped a stellar 20-year career in 2005-06 and was inducted into the OVC Hall of Fame in 2007; he compiled a 408-190 record while leading the Golden Eagles to an unprecedented 16 OVC regular-season titles and eight NCAA Tournament appearances, including five straight from 1989-93. Eastern Kentucky’s Larry Joe Inman, who retired at the conclusion of the 2007-08 season and was inducted into the

Harris; and most recently Murray State’s Ashley Hayes who was the OVC Player of the Year in 2007-08 and 2008-09. The league also had another historical moment in November 2008 when the NCAA awarded Nashville the 2014 NCAA Women’s Division I Final Four. The OVC will serve as the host of the prestigious event, which is one of the biggest sporting events the city of Nashville can host. The event will be held at the Sommet Center in downtown Nashville. Over its 61 years, OVC teams have garnered national championships and bowl games in football, along with national team or individual titles in the sports of rifle, cross country, track and golf. The OVC has also produced several Olympic athletes, including Murray State’s Morgan Hicks, who was a member of the 2004 United States Olympic Rifle Team. In addition, some of the greatest players in professional sports were educated at OVC institutions. The list includes former greats such as football’s Phil Simms (Morehead State), basketball’s Clem Haskins (Western Kentucky) and Bubba Wells (Austin Peay) and two-sport star Steve Hamilton (Morehead State) to present-day standouts like basketball player Trenton Hassell (Austin Peay), football player Tony Romo (Eastern Illinois), baseball players Jamie Walker (Austin Peay) and George Sherrill (Austin Peay) and professional golfer Jeff Sluman (Tennessee Tech). Hamilton is the only athlete to ever play in the NCAA Basketball Championship, a Major League Baseball World Series (New York Yankees) and a NBA Championship Series (Los Angeles Lakers). The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six ScholarAthlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had

179 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last three years (2006-07 to the present). Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics. Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior student-athlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sport-specific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.

OVC HONORS AND AWARDS The Ohio Valley Conference implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy promoting fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent in 1995. The statement answered a challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in college athletics, and has become a model for others to follow across the nation. The development of the OVC sportsmanship statement began in June 1993 at the direction of the league's presidents. A committee made up of athletics directors and faculty representatives drafted the initial statement, and all coaches and other administrators had the opportunity for input. The statement sets forth expectations for spirit groups, officials and fans, as well as the student-athletes and coaches. Here is a brief synopsis of each group's expectations within the sportsmanship statement. Administrators: Institutional administrators will create an environment of hospitality for visiting teams, particularly for those individuals at Conference institutions. Administrators will treat the visiting teams and its fans in the same manner that they would want their teams to be treated. Coaches: Coaches have the greatest amount of influence over whether young people in their programs are taught and follow the high principles of sportsmanship. The OVC has been benefited by coaches who have risked losing a contest by removing student-athletes who have demonstrated disrespect for their opponents. This discipline measure educates that individual about the importance of sportsmanship over participation and winning, and helps counteract the constant messages received from many professional athletes who demonstrate a lack of respect for opponents. Student-Athletes: Student-athletes at OVC institutions will be expected to treat opponents with sportsmanship, and there will be no tolerance for taunting and baiting of opponents. OVC student-athletes must understand that they are perhaps the most visible representatives of their institutions and their behavior is observed and emulated by many who are younger. OVC student-athletes must honor the responsibilities that accompany the privilege of representing our schools by behaving with dignity and class on and off the field. Spirit Groups: Like our student-athletes, spirit groups are visible representatives of our universities, and they are expected to show decent behavior. Cheerleaders, bands and other spirit groups are admitted to contests to support their teams and assist in creating a fun atmosphere, but they will not be allowed to disrupt or confront opposing teams. Officials: Officials will enforce the rules regarding sportsmanship without tolerance for abuse. Players and coaches will receive their only warning prior to the contest, and once the contest begins, penalties will be assessed for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct. Fans: We know all fans are embarrassed by the inappropriate behavior of a few who may engage in confrontational and threatening actions towards officials, visiting fans, players or coaches. Those individuals may be dismissed to provide a better environment for others. The Conference believes that the effort to meet the expectations outlined in the sportsmanship statement will increase the attractiveness at our athletics events by creating a healthy environment for competition. A complete copy of the sportsmanship statement can be obtained by calling the OVC office at (615) 371-1698.

The OVC has a variety of awards to recognize sportsmanship by its student-athletes, coaches, administrators and teams. In 1998, the OVC established the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, presented annually to a male or female junior or senior student-athlete who best exemplifies the characteristics of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and administrator. Hamilton is the only individual to have ever played in a NCAA Basketball Championship, a Major League Baseball World Series (New York Yankees) and a National Basketball Association Championship Series (Minnesota Lakers). In 2003-04 the League began awarding the Institutional Sportsmanship Award, given to the OVC member institution selected by its peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. In 2005-06 the League expanded the sportsmanship award program by adding the Team Sportsmanship Award. An award is given to each sport sponsored by the OVC and is voted on by the student-athletes and coaches of the respective sports.

OVC TO HOST 2014 NCAA WOMEN’S FINAL FOUR On Nov. 14, 2008 the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) informed representatives from the Ohio Valley Conference and the Nashville Sports Council that the City of Nashville has been awarded the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Final Four. The event will take place at the Sommet Center in downtown Nashville. In conjunction with the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Final Four, Nashville will also host the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) National Convention. The WBCA is the national association of approximately 5,000 basketball coaches representing all levels of the game, including junior high, AAU, high school, college and professional. Nashville was one of five cities awarded the Division I Women’s Basketball Final Four’s between the years of 2012 and 2016. Other cities selected to host the Final Four during that time period include (with arena and host institution): • 2012: Denver, Pepsi Center, Mountain West Conference • 2013: New Orleans, New Orleans Arena, University of New Orleans • 2014: Nashville, Sommet Center, Ohio Valley Conference • 2015: Tampa Bay, St. Pete Times Forum, University of South Florida • 2016: Indianapolis, Lucas Oil Stadium, Butler University/IUPUI/Horizon League The process to secure the Division I Women’s Final Four began in January 2008 with an initial meeting of the Music City Bid Committee, co-chaired by Vice-Mayor Diane Neighbors and Margaret Behm. The OVC and Nashville Sports Council submitted an official bid to the NCAA in June 2008 and were announced as one of the eight finalists in August 2008. The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and NCAA staff made a twoday visit to Nashville in mid-October 2008 and Nashville’s local bid committee made a final presentation to the NCAA in Indianapolis on Nov. 12, 2008. “This is great news for Nashville”, said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. “I applaud the Sports Council, the Ohio Valley Conference and the bid committee for all the work they put into making this happen, specifically Vice-Mayor Diane Neighbors and Margaret Behm. This news speaks to what a great destination Nashville is for large events and their participants, and it helps validate the need for a new, much larger convention center downtown. This event is only possible because by 2014 the Music City Center will be open and fully operational. I look forward to Nashville hosting this event and to showing the Women’s Final Four participants all that Music City has to offer.” "This is a great day for Music City,” said Nashville Vice-Mayor and Music City Bid Committee Co-Chair Diane Neighbors. “The Nashville team worked very hard and produced a fantastic proposal. Over the next six years we will be putting together a Final Four that players, coaches, and fans won't forget. Congratulations Nashville!” "The community wide support we have received throughout the bid process has been phenomenal," said Music City Bid Committee Co-Chair Margaret Behm. "That broad ranging support coupled with Middle Tennessee's long tradition of celebrating women's basketball makes Nashville the perfect host site for the 2014 Women's Final Four." “This is a phenominal event to celebrate coming to Nashville,” said Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner Beth DeBauche. “The Women’s Basketball Committee having faith in the OVC and Nashville Sports Council to serve as hosts is a tribute to our organizations. It will be a fun ride to exceed their expectations and make 2014 the best Women’s Final Four ever.” "We are pleased that the NCAA has awarded the 2014 Women's Final Four to Nashville," said Nashville Sports Council President & CEO Scott Ramsey. "This event is one of the most high profile annual events on the national sports calendar and will bring tremendous national exposure, prestige and economic impact to our community. We look forward to beginning the planning and preparation to host an unforgettable experience for the studentathletes, fans and everyone associated with the Women's Final Four." When evaluating prospective host cities, the committee reviewed each city’s competition venue, convention center, hotel community, transportation plans, legacy programs and financial commitment, as well as the community’s and prospective host institution/conference’s overall commitment to the event. “The women’s basketball committee invested a tremendous amount of time and effort in the Women’s Final Four site selection process,” said Jacki Silar, chair of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and associate director of athletics at Duke University. “It was a very difficult and important decision and it was the committee’s charge to determine which of the cities would best serve as future host sites for the pinnacle of women’s basketball – the Women’s Final Four. The committee appreciated the work and effort of each of the cities that participated in this bid selection process. Committee members evaluated each prospective host city based on many criteria, weighing each element’s importance and what is critical to successfully host a Women’s Final Four.” “We would like to express our appreciation to the prospective host cities and bid committees that participated in the bid process for the 2012-16 Women’s Final Four,” said NCAA Executive Vice President Tom Jernstedt. “The time, effort and enthusiasm in each of their bids were noteworthy and because of this kind of commitment and engagement, the Women’s Final Four will continue to be the outstanding ’celebration’ of women’s basketball that it has become. This was a difficult decision by the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee, and I applaud their efforts in determining the five cities that will serve as the future host cities for the pinnacle event in women’s basketball.” "The selection of Nashville and the Ohio Valley Conference to host the NCAA Final Four is an example of the quality work this conference does on behalf of the student-athletes that call the OVC home,” said Rob Cross, Murray State University head women’s basketball coach. “As a conference we certainly value the opportunity to host such a tremendous event in the home of our own tournament championship. We look forward to the rest of the nation seeing what we already know...that the people of this area are extremely passionate about basketball. As the excitement builds for the Final 10

Four in Nashville it will certainly help build upon the reputation the OVC enjoys as an exciting basketball league." “Having Nashville host the Women’s Final Four is beyond exciting,” said, Tracee Wells, Tennessee State University head women’s basketball coach. “Nashville is a great city that has many things for visitors to get involved in like music, theatre, sports and history to name a few. Music City will more than welcome the thousands of fans who travel to support women’s basketball. Both the OVC and WBCA are always looking for ways to grow the women’s game; Nashville will be a great atmosphere to showcase great basketball while showing great fans a great time in a great city!”

OVC TO ALSO HOST 2012 MEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP 1ST/2ND ROUNDS On Sept. 21, 2009 the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) informed representatives from the Ohio Valley Conference and Nashville Sports Council that the City of Nashville has been awarded the 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship First and Second Rounds. The event will take place on March 16 and 18 and will be held at the Sommet Center in downtown Nashville with the Ohio Valley Conference serving as the host. This marks the fourth time since 2000 that the event will be held in the City of Nashville and at the Sommet Center (2000, 2003 and 2005). Each of the three previous events were sell outs. Overall it is the eighth time the tournament has been in Nashville as the first and second rounds have also been held in the city in 1982, 1989 and 1993 as were the 1973 Regional Semifinals/Finals. "Having been a member of this community for more than three decades, the Ohio Valley Conference is pleased to be able to bring marquee events that show off the best of intercollegiate athletics to the City of Nashville," said Beth DeBauche, Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner. "We are proud to be able to showcase not only the OVC, but the Sommet Center and the City of Nashville to all the fans who will visit our city during the event." "We are excited to have March Madness back in Music City for the fourth time since 2000. This is a great event from both an economical and media exposure standpoint for our community," said Scott Ramsey, President and CEO of the Nashville Sports Council. In all the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee selected 36 cities over a three-year period (2011-13) to serve as hosts for the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. "Having recently completed the Final Four site selection process, the committee knew this would be a challenge," said Dan Guerrero, director of athletics at UCLA and current basketball committee chair. "We received some 70 bids and each city could, justifiably, provide a quality championship experience for the student-athletes. Interest remains incredibly high in hosting the championship." Other cities selected for first/second rounds games in 2012 include Albuquerque, N.M., Louisville, Ky., Pittsburgh, Pa., Portland, Ore., Columbus, Ohio, Greensboro, N.C. and Omaha, Neb. The regional sites for 2012 are Boston, Mass., Phoenix, Ariz., Atlanta, Ga. and St. Louis, Mo. The 2012 Men's Final Four will be played at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, La. 2009-10 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide 1 1

154 154 114 105 93 86 76 55 44 19

In a vote of Ohio Valley Conference head men’s basketball coaches and sports information directors, Morehead State and Murray State each received 10 first-place votes and were picked as cofavorites for the 2009-10 season. Morehead State finished last season 12-6 in league play (4th place) and went on to win the OVC Tournament Championship. Murray State was tied for second overall last season with a 13-5 record and lost in the OVC Tournament semifinals. It marks the 13th time in the last 21 years that Murray State has been picked the preseason favorite and second year in a row. Morehead State is tabbed first for the first time since the 1983-84 season (when they went 25-6 and won the OVC regular season and tournament championships). It marks just the third time since 1980-81 (when preseason polls were first available) that co-favorites have been picked in the preseason poll (it also happened in 1991-92 and 1994-95). Morehead State and Murray State each received 154 points and were followed next by Austin Peay who had 114 total points. Eastern Illinois was picked fourth (105 points) and followed by Eastern Kentucky (93), Jacksonville State (86), Tennessee Tech (76), UT Martin (55), Tennessee State (44) and Southeast Missouri State (19).

Preseason Player of the Year Kenneth Faried, Morehead State The 2009-10 All-OVC Preseason Men’s Basketball team is headlined by Morehead State junior center Kenneth Faried. Faried is coming off a season where he was named OVC Defensive Player of the Year and OVC Tournament MVP. Overall six different schools were represented on the team with Murray State’s three selections leading the way. Eastern Illinois and Morehead State each had two selections while Austin Peay, Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee State had one player apiece on the squad. The team features just one player (Faried) who was a first-team All-OVC selection last season. The team does have three secondteam All-OVC picks from 2008-09 and two players who were on last season’s All-Newcomer Team. Faried made a splash last season being named the Conference’s first OVC Defensive Player of the Year after ranking third nationally in rebounding (13.0/game), 52nd nationally in blocked shots (1.9/game) and 69th nationally in steals (1.9/game). Faried also added 13.9 points per game and connected on 55.6 percent of his field goal attempts (36th nationally). The 6-8 native of Newark, N.J. also tallied 25 double-doubles, which was the second most nationally, trailing only National Player of the Year Blake Griffin (29). Austin Peay’s Wesley Channels, Eastern Illinois’ Romain Martin and Murray State’s Danero Thomas were each second-team AllOVC picks last season and are each on the preseason team this year. Murray State’s Ivan Aska and Isacc Miles were two of the five All-OVC Newcomer selections in 2008-09 who are also on this year’s All-OVC preseason squad. The Preseason All-OVC team is rounded out by Tennessee State’s Darius Cox, Eastern Illinois’ Tyler Laser, Morehead State’s Maze Stallworth and Eastern Kentucky’s Justin Stommes.

Preseason Predictions: Is being picked the preseason favorite, always a good thing? Over the past 30 years of preseason polls that were available, the league’s head coaches and sports information directors correctly pick the eventual OVC regular season champion 60 percent of the time, picking the correct winner 18 times over the last 30 years. Over the past 10 years, the preseason poll has correctly picked the winner every other year. Last season the poll tabbed Murray State the favorite, although the Racers finished second to UT Martin, who won its first-ever OVC Championship a year ago.

ALL-TIME COACHING VICTORIES Austin Peay head coach Dave Loos enters the season with 314 victories while in the OVC, just five away from first place in conference history.

The overall record listed includes only seasons the coaches were a member of the OVC. In total, 91 coaches have led programs while a member of the OVC from 1948 to the present.

2009-10 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide

ESPN BracketBusters Format: In its eighth year, ESPN BracketBusters is an ESPN television property that was tremendously successful with its first seven events in February of 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. The event has allowed Division I conferences to participate in a cutting-edge format that involves “wild card” pairings from the pool of participating teams, with half of the ESPN BracketBusters teams pre-designated as “home” and the remaining half as “road” teams. OVC Schools in the Event: For the fifth straight year, all 11 Ohio Valley Conference schools will participate in the ESPN BracketBusters series. Five schools will host games this season while the other six will go on the road. Austin Peay has competed in the most BracketBusters games (6) while UT Martin has the best record in the event (3-1). This will be the first year that SIU Edwardsville has competed in the event. What Makes ESPN BracketBusters Different From Other Events: What sets ESPN BracketBusters apart from the other made-for-television events is that the pairings of teams is not pre-determined. The actual pairings take place three weeks in advance of the event, and those matchups are determined on the basis of regular season play. Another important component for ESPN BracketBusters participants is future scheduling. Each team that participates in any given year agrees to enter into a home-and-home series with its to-benamed opponent. The return game of each series is made in November or December in the season following the BracketBusters game. This return game allows for the completion of the two-game series contract and is not part of the ESPN BracketBusters event in that second year. BracketBusters Pool Versus Field: The ESPN BracketBusters pool is defined as the original 98 participating teams prior to the pairing of teams for the television package. The ESPN BracketBusters field is defined as the 22 teams chosen for the 11 games televised on the ESPN family of networks (ESPN2 and ESPNU). 2010 ESPN BracketBusters Pool: This year’s BracketBusters pool features teams with 89 appearances in the last six NCAA Tournaments, including a team in the Final Four - George Mason (2006); one in the Elite Eight – Davidson (2008); and six Sweet Sixteen squads – Butler (2007), Southern Illinois (2007), Bradley (2006), Wichita State (2006), Milwaukee (2005) and Nevada (2004). 2010 ESPN BracketBusters Evaluation and Pairings Process: The evaluation and pairings of teams for the ESPN television package will be made by the staff of ESPN, in consultation with the commissioners of participating conferences. Consideration will be given to avoiding matchups of conference teams and matchups of any teams that have already met during the current season. ESPN, in consultation with the conference commissioners, will make pairing decisions on Sunday, January 31, and those selections will be announced on Monday afternoon, February 1. The selection of ESPN networks and start times will not be announced until a week later. 2009 NCAA Tournament Field: Last year’s ESPN BracketBusters pool including 12 teams who earned berths into the NCAA Tournament: Akron, Butler, Cal State Northridge, Cleveland State, Morehead State, Morgan State, North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Portland State, Siena, Utah State and VCU. Those teams compiled a 3-12 overall record as Morehead State beat Alabama State, Cleveland State beat Wake Forest and Siena beat Ohio State.

TEAM NOTES • Eastern Illinois will be playing its 100th season of intercollegiate basketball this season culminating with a celebration game on Feb. 27 against Tennessee State. The Panthers selected an All-Century team which includes two former All-OVC players – Kyle Hill and Henry Domercant. • Senior Romain Martin led the Panthers in scoring for a third straight season last year as he became the 31st EIU player to eclipse the 1,000 point mark for his career. Martin will look to become the first EIU player to lead the program in scoring for four straight seasons in the Panthers 100 years of basketball. • Senior Ousmane Cisse led the Panthers in rebounding for a third straight season last season collecting six double-doubles to rank fourth on the single season list. Cisse enters the season needing just 20 rebounds this season to become only the 12th player in EIU history with more than 600 rebounds for their career.

TEAM NOTES • Last season Morehead State won its first OVC Tournament Championship since 1984 with a thrilling 67-65 double overtime victory over Austin Peay. The back-andforth game was finally won when Steve Peterson hit the game-winning jumper from the corner with just 1.4 seconds remaining. It was Peterson’s only made field goal of the game (and only second one of the entire tournament). • Morehead State opened NCAA Tournament play in Dayton, Ohio by topping Alabama State 58-43 in the Opening Round Game in front of a record crowd of 11,346. The Eagles never trailed in that game. The NCAA victory was the first by an OVC team since 1989. • Kenneth Faried finished the 2008-09 season with 25 double-doubles, the second most nationally trailing only National Player of the Year Blake Griffin (29). Faried averaged 13.0 rebounds per game during the year, which ranked third nationally.

TEAM NOTES • The Redhawks enter the 2009-10 campaign with 10 players who have never played a NCAA Division I basketball game. Southeast’s 15-man roster includes 12 scholarship players, four of which return from a year ago. Returning starters Jajuan Maxwell (F), Johnny Hill (G) and LaMont Russell (F) highlight the Redhawks returnees. • Southeast has four attractive regional matchups on its non-conference schedule this season. The Redhawks open the year at Saint Louis (Nov. 14), host Arkansas State (home-opener, Nov. 18) and Southern Illinois (Dec. 9), and travel to national powerhouse Memphis (Dec. 22). Southeast opens its 18-game Ohio Valley Conference slate at Austin Peay on Dec. 3. • Newcomer Leon Powell will miss the 2009-10 due to injury.

The basketball program will not be eligible for postseason competition until 2012-13, when they have completed the reclassification process and are a full-fledged Division I member. • Mark Yelovich returns for his sophomore season after becoming the first freshman to lead SIUE in scoring since the 1993-94 when Jason Holmes led the Cougars for four straight seasons. Holmes is SIUE’s all-time leading scorer with 1,949 points. • Nikola Bundalo moved into the top five all-time in blocks with 51. He tied Marty Perry (1999-2002) and will next be looking to pass Nathan Kreke (1994-1998) who had 54. • Point guard Aamir McCleary returns to the lineup this season.

TEAM NOTES • Despite changing coaches on Feb. 6 of last season, Tennessee State ended the season on a strong note. After an initial loss under interim coach Mark Pittman, TSU reeled off six wins in a row to close out the regular season and earn the No. 7 seed in the OVC Tournament. • With the coaching change, TSU has only five players returning from last year’s team that played in a game. Those players combined for 18.8 points and 11.9 rebounds per game, just 25.8 percent of the team’s scoring and 33.6 percent of the team’s total rebounding in 200809. • The Tigers roster includes just two seniors, five juniors, one sophomore and five freshman. Of the five juniors on the team, four are transfers entering their first season with the program.

UT Martin’s Lester Hudson became the first player in NCAA Division I history to record a quadruple-double on Nov. 13, 2007 when he had 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a 116-74 victory over Central Baptist. Hudson also added a triple-double later that season. Hudson, a second round draft pick of the Boston Celtics in 2009, finished his career as the OVC’s single-season scoring leader, scoring 880 points his senior season (2008-09). Hudson’s 26.6 career average ranks fifth in OVC history. He also ended his career 10th all-time in 3-pointers made (230) and first in a season for 3-pointers made (124 in 2007-08). He was named OVC Men’s Basketball Player of the Year (as well OVC Athlete of the Year) in both of his years in the league and led the Skyhawks to its first-ever OVC Championship in 2008-09 (144 OVC record).

2009-10 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide

For the 16th time in 17 years, the Ohio Valley Conference invades downtown Nashville to crown its men's basketball champion. The OVC Basketball Tournament is the league's showcase event, and the 2010 edition of "Music City Madness" will include a variety of exciting action both on and off the court. The site of the tournament this year is the Sommet Center (formerly known as the Gaylord Entertainment Center) in downtown Nashville, marking the 11th time the event has taken place in the building. The tournament was first held at the Sommet Center (pronounced sohMAY) in 1997 (marking the first basketball event in the building) and has been there every year since with the exception of 2002, 2004 and 2008. The state-of-the-art facility has received rave reviews from OVC players, coaches and fans. Among the building’s amenities is a new Megatron scoreboard which was installed in 2007. The building, which is home to the NHL’s Nashville Predators, seats up to 20,000 people for select basketball events. It will be the host of both the 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship First/Second Rounds as well as the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Final Four. Eight teams will make up the field for the 2010 OVC Tournament, with first-round games set for Tuesday, March 2 at the on-campus sites of the top four seeds. The winners of those games will come to Nashville for the semifinals on Friday, March 5. The OVC championship game is set for Saturday, March 6, with the winner earning the Conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Once again the semifinals will be televised on ESPNU while ESPN2 will televise the championship game. Last season Morehead State claimed its first OVC Tournament crown since 1984, as they defeated Austin Peay 67-65 in a thrilling double overtime contest.

OVC Tournament Tiebreaker System Regular season standings will be the determining factor in setting first-round pairings for the tournament. All ties will be broken starting at the top of the conference standings and working down. The tiebreaking system will utilize the following factors, in order, until all ties are broken. TWO-WAY TIES 1. Records in head-to-head competition are compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most games against the other. 2. In the event step 1 does not resolve the tie (i.e. if the two teams split their games during the season), then the records of the tying teams against the No. 1 seed shall be compared. The team with the better record against the No. 1 seed shall gain the higher seed. 3. If the potential No. 1 seed is among tied teams, the process in step 2 will begin at the highest point in the standings which does not involve a tied team. 4. The process continues, through the No. 10 team in the standings, if necessary. 5. In the event the tie cannot be broken, seeds will be determined by a coin flip. MULTIPLE TIES 1. Composite records between the tying teams will be evaluated to determine whether one team has won more games against the other tying institutions (in which case that team would receive the higher seed) and/or one team has won the least number of games among the tied teams (in which case the team will receive the lowest seed), and/or two teams have the same composite record (in which case the two-team tiebreaker scenario shall be utilized). 2. In the event step 1 does not solve the multiple ties, or reduce the multiple ties to one tie, then a comparison of records of the tying institutions against the No. 1 seed will occur. The team among the tying institutions with the better record against the No. 1 seed will receive the higher seed. 3. If the potential No. 1 seed is among tied teams, the process in step 2 will begin at the highest point in the standings which does not involve a tied team. 4. The process continues, through the No. 10 team in the standings, if necessary. 5. In the event this process does not resolve the ties, seeding will be determined by a coin flip. Note: If a multiple tie is reduced to a tie between two teams, the two-team tiebreaker formula will then be utilized. Ties involving teams higher in the standings are always broken before ties involving teams lower in the standings. 2009-10 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide 7 3

2009-10 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide

Let the Season Begin: The 2009-10 campaign kicks off with Morehead State hosting Kentucky State in an exhibition game on Oct. 31. The regular-season begins on Nov. 13 with Conference play starting on Dec. 3. Eight different teams have won a regular-season title with Tennessee Tech leading the way with 15. At the Sommet Again: The Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament, which will be held in Nashville for the 16th time in 17 years, will be back at the Sommet Center for the second straight year and 11th time overall. The two-day event will be held March 5 and 6. New Faces: For the second straight year the Ohio Valley Conference will have two new coaches. Tennessee Tech and UT Martin will each have first-year head coaches. Sytia Messer takes over the helm of the Golden Eagles after spending the last five seasons on the Georgia Tech women's basketball staff. Messer completed her first year as the Yellow Jackets associate head coach. She also spent time on the staffs of Arkansas State and Memphis. Kevin McMillan becomes just the eighth head coach in Skyhawk history.

McMillan also had a stint as an assistant coach at Middle Tennessee State. Young Teams: The Ohio Valley Conference will return less than half of its starters from a year ago as just 26 starters are coming back from last season. However, Jacksonville State will have its entire starting lineup in tact from the 2008-09 season. Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State each have four starters returning from last season while Austin Peay, Southeast Missouri, SIU Edwardsville and UT Martin each have two. Eastern Illinois, Murray State and Tennessee State will have the most holes to fill as they have just one starter coming back.

Gametime is set for 5:30 p.m. CT in Morehead, Ky. 2008-09 in Review: Eastern Illinois was selected to win the 2008-09 title with Murray State predicted to finish second but it was Murray State winning its first regular-season title and Eastern Illinois coming in second last year.

Murray State defeated No. 8 Jacksonville State, 79-69, but fell to No. 5 Austin Peay in second round action. No. 2 Eastern Illinois defeated No. 3 Tennessee State, 64-48, but fell to fifth-seeded Austin Peay, 69-65, in double overtime in the championship contest. It marked the first time in Conference history that a No. 5 seed won the tournament title. Murray State's Rob Cross earned OVC Coach of the Year honors after leading his team to its first league regular-season title in his first year at the helm. The Racers' Ashley Hayes became just the sixth player in OVC history to earn back-to-back Player of the Year awards. Hayes led the league with 22.6 points per game. Eastern Kentucky's Kayla Drake took home Freshman of the Year honors after ranking among league leaders in scoring (16.0 ppg), free throw percentage (81.3%), steals (2.2 spg) and three-point field goals made (2.2 per game).
