2011 OVC VOLLEYBALL MEDIA GUIDE • 1


ABOUT THE OVC Entering its 64th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. In May 2011 the Conference expanded for the second time in four years, adding Belmont University which will begin competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont will give the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. SIUE will begin regular season competition this season (2011-12) and be eligible for postseason the same year Belmont joins the league. 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, 2009. 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 history 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 nontraditionally 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. Through the past 63 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football crowns, including both the 2007 and 2008 championships, as they compiled a 15-1 league record over that time period. Only one other Football Championship Subdivision school (UMass) has won more Conference titles than the Colonels. Among OVC teams, former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with nine, and Murray State and former member Western Kentucky with eight apiece. Eastern Illinois has claimed five football crowns (including the 2009 title) while Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Tennessee State and former members Evansville and East Tennessee State have captured two apiece. Austin Peay, Southeast Missouri (which captured its first crown in 2010), UT Martin and former member Youngstown State have one title apiece. Murray State and Evansville tied for the initial football championship, and the Racers participated in the first-ever bowl game by an OVC team, tying Sul Ross State 21-21 in the 1948 Tangerine Bowl. From 1948 to 1975, OVC teams played in 15 bowl games, winning eight of them. Eastern Kentucky and Western Kentucky were also participants in the NCAA Division II playoffs in the early and mid-1970s prior to the NCAA’s reclassification of football programs into Division I-AA. The term “I-AA” lasted until the end of the 2006 season when it was changed to Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The first Division I-AA/FCS football playoff 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. Murray dropped its semifinal game to Lehigh, but the Colonels nipped Nevada-Reno in double overtime and claimed the national championship a week later with a 30-7 victory over Lehigh. EKU was coached by former all-America quarterback Roy Kidd, who was in his 16th year at the helm of his alma mater and who skippered the Colonels to a second national title three years later. Following the 2002 season, Kidd retired after 39 years at EKU; upon retirement, he ranked sixth all-time among Division I coaches with 315 victories, earning him a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame. EKU’s 19 FCS playoff appearances are the second for the most all-time (behind only Montana). A sampling of former OVC football stars, some of whom were All-Americans during their collegiate careers before achieving stardom at the professional ranks, include Jim Youngblood and Larry Schreiber (Tennessee Tech), Phil Simms (Morehead State), Virgil Livers and Dale Lindsey (Western Kentucky), Myron Guyton and Chad Bratzke (Eastern Kentucky), Cortland Finnegan (Samford) and Tony Romo (Eastern Illinois). In 2008, former Tennessee State standout Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie became just the fourth NFL First Round draft pick in OVC history when he was selected 16th overall by the Arizona Cardinals. He would break into the starting lineup halfway through his rookie season and started at cornerback for the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII. The OVC has had at least one former player named a NFL Pro Bowl selection in four of the past five seasons. In 2010 Southeast Missouri State, picked to finish seventh in the preseason poll, compiled a 7-1 Conference record on the way to its first OVC Championship since joining the league in 1991. Overall the Redhawks were 9-2 during the regular season and earned a berth in the FCS Playoffs, its first playoff berth at any level in the program’s 104-year history. Southeast would lose to eventual national champion Eastern Washington in the second round of the playoffs. Head coach Tony Samuel capped the year by winning the Sports Network’s Eddie Robinson Award, given to the National Coach of the Year. Samuel was the second OVC coach to win the award (joining Murray State’s Houston Nutt who won the award in 1995). 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’ 14 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. In 2009-10, Murray State made OVC history by winning a record 31 games (31-5) on its way to the league’s regular season and tournament championship. In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the No. 13 seed Racers topped Vanderbilt in thrilling fashion when senior Danero Thomas hit a jumper as time expired to lift MSU to a 66-65 victory. It marked the first OVC team to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament since 1989, and snapped a skid of 71-straight loses to Southeastern Conference foes (dating back to 2000-01). In the second round the Racers pushed eventual national runner-up Butler to the brink before losing 54-52. In 2010-11 Morehead State would make it three NCAA Tournament wins in as many years for the league and got a bit of revenge for the 2009 tournament loss to Louisville in the process. After finishing second in the regular season and winning the OVC Tournament Championship, the No. 13 seeded Eagles were shipped to Denver to play its in-state foe Cardinals. MSU jumped out to a 15-2 advantage but were down four points (61-57) with just over a minute to play in regulation. After two free throws from two-time OVC Player of the Year Kenneth Faried, the Eagles held for one final shot attempt and senior Demonte Harper pulled up off a cross-over dribble to nail a 3-pointer with 4.3 seconds left that gave Morehead State a 62-61 lead. UofL had one last attempt but Faried blocked the Cardinals last shot, giving MSU the win, its first over Louisville since the 1956-57 season. During the 2010-11 year Faried, the nation’s leading rebounder during the season, became the NCAA’s Modern Era (since 1973) career rebounding leader, totaling 1,673 rebounds which passed Tim Duncan for the record (he is 11th all-time in NCAA history). Faried also finished his career with 86 double-doubles, second all-time to only Duncan. He is one of only six players in NCAA history to finish with 2,000-plus career points (2,009) and 1,600-plus career rebounds. Faried was drafted 22nd overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 2011 NBA Draft, becoming the first OVC player selected in the first round since Tennessee State’s Carlos Rogers 1994. Through its 63 years, 12 teams have won or shared the league’s regular season men’s basketball title. Murray State heads the list with a Conference-record 22 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 became the winningest coach in OVC history in 2009-10, netting his 319th victory and passing Luther on the all-time list. Loos enters the 2011-12 season with 351 victories. 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), UT Martin’s Lester Hudson (2007-08, 2008-09) and Morehead State’s Kenneth Faried (2009-10, 2010-11). 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 17 regular-season titles and owns nine OVC Tournament crowns. In fact, the Golden Eagles have reached the championship game of the OVC Tournament 20 times in the past 30 years. Although Tennessee Tech remains the standard-bearer, five other teams have won 13 of the last 18 OVC Tournaments. UT Martin became the latest program to add its name to the list, capturing its first OVC Tournament title in 2011. Austin Peay leads the group with seven crowns including four-straight from 2000-03 and back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010, while Tennessee State, Eastern Kentucky, Murray State 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 OVC Hall of Fame in 2009, won more than 100 games at both Middle Tennessee and EKU, and earned OVC Coach of the Year honors a record eight times - five times at EKU and three at MTSU. He finished his career with 480 career victories. 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 Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. Over its 63 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 and Morehead State’s Brian Shimer who competed in five Winter Olympics in bobsled (winning a bronze medal in 2002) and coached the 2010 United States bobsled team to its first gold medal since 1948. 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) and baseball players George Sherrill (Austin Peay) and Jon Rauch (Morehead State). 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 OVC’s first volleyball tournament was held in 1981, the same year Eastern Kentucky began a string of six straight tournament crowns. Former EKU skipper Dr. Geri Polvino compiled a 627-439 record in 32 seasons as head coach of the Colonels, earning OVC Coach of the Year honors eight times. More recently, former Austin Peay coach Cheryl Holt and former Southeast Missouri skipper Cindy Gannon also earned their peers’ recognition multiple times with four awards each. Throughout the last 28 years, 10 different teams have won an OVC regular-season or tournament volleyball crown. Since joining the league in 1991, Southeast Missouri has dominated the scene, winning seven of its eight regular-season titles during the 1990’s, including five straight from 1993-97. The Redhawks have also won five tournament crowns (1994, 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000). Jacksonville State won back-to-back OVC Tournament Championships (2005, 2006) including going through the OVC undefeated (16-0) in 2006 and winning a NCAA Tournament match in 2010, the league’s first NCAA victory since 2000. Following the 2007 season, Jacksonville State’s Abbey Breit was named the OVC Offensive Player of the Year for the third straight season, becoming the first player in OVC history to accomplish that feat. Four other individuals - Eastern Kentucky’s Angela Boykins (1985-86), Morehead State’s Dayle Hammontree (1988-89), Southeast Missouri’s Tuba Meto (1996-97) and Morehead State’s Amy Almond (2001-02) – were back-to-back winners of the award. In 2007 the Conference had two teams in the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament for the first time in league history, as former OVC member Samford earned an at-large selection while Southeast Missouri was the Conference’s automatic bid. In 2009 it was OVC softball that accomplished several firsts as UT Martin (tournament champion) and Jacksonville State (at-large) were each selected for the NCAA Championship. Jacksonville State would take it a step farther by winning the Knoxville Regional (beating No. 13 national seed Tennessee along the way) to become the first OVC softball program to advance to a Super Regional. Jax State would fall to No. 4 Alabama in that Super Regional but finished the season 43-16 (19-2 OVC) and ranked 21st nationally in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll and 24th

The OVC also has made a statement in the NCAA Baseball Championship in recent years, with its teams involved in several memorable contests in the last decade. Tennessee Tech surprised Wake Forest in the opening round of the 2001 tournament and Southeast Missouri stunned host Alabama in the opening round of the 2002 championship. Five years later, Austin Peay captured the collegiate baseball world’s attention by taking Vanderbilt, the 2007 No. 1 overall seed, to extra innings. Eastern Illinois pushed host Nebraska to the limit in 2008 followed by Tennessee Tech’s memorable contest against host Clemson in 2009. After not making the OVC Tournament field in either 2009 or 2010, Austin Peay, who was picked to finish seventh in the preseason poll, won the regular season and tournament championships to garner its fourth NCAA Tournament appearance. In the first game of NCAA Regional play the Govs knocked off host and No. 1 seed Georgia Tech 2-1. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete 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 America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 202 student-athletes honored with the award, including 35 over the last three years (2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11). 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 sportspecific 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. Belmont University will become the league’s 12th member on July 1, 2012.

Beth DeBauche - Commissioner Elizabeth (Beth) DeBauche was named Commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference on July 29, 2009 and began her duties with the league in September 2009. DeBauche (pronounced De-BUSH) is the seventh full-time Commissioner in the 63-year history of the OVC. She follows Art Guepe (1963-75), Paul Dietzel (1975-76), Bob Vanatta (1976-79), Jim Delany (1979-89), Dan Beebe (1989-2003) and Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher (2003-09). DeBauche is one of just five females to be the head of a Division I Conference in 2011-12, and one of just eight to lead a Division I Conference all-time. In May 2011 the league announced the addition of Belmont University to the OVC beginning in the 2012-13 season. The addition of Belmont brings the OVC to 12 teams, the largest membership total the league has had in its history. In her two years with the league the OVC has seen postseason success men’s basketball as Murray State topped Vanderbilt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and Morehead State beat Louisville in the second round in 2011. Overall the league has won NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament games in three-straight years, making the OVC one of only 10 conferences nationally (and one of four non-BCS leagues) to achieve that success. Under DeBauche the league has started an extensive strategic planning initiative. In addition student-athletes in the OVC have also continued to achieve high levels of success not only on the field but also in the classroom. In 2009-10 the league had an all-time high number of honorees on both the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll and the OVC Medal of Honor lists. During the past two years 23 OVC student-athletes have been named CoSIDA Academic All-Americans. During her first year with the OVC the league announced a change in format and new venue for its men’s and women’s basketball championships. The event now spans four days and is held at Municipal Auditorium in downtown Nashville (previously only the semifinals and finals were played in Nashville), and brings eight men’s and eight women’s teams to Music City for the championship. The format also changed to a merit-based system where the No. 3 and 4 seeds receive a bye to the quarterfinals and the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds will receive double byes to the semifinals. DeBauche currently serves on the NCAA Committee on Athletic Certification and the NCAA Division I Leadership Council. From August 2002 through August 2009 DeBauche, along with the vice-president of Division I, was responsible for coordinating Division I initiatives through the NCAA governance structure, as well as helping to manage the Division I agenda. Her duties included developing agendas and providing leadership for the Division I Board of Directors, Presidential Advisory Group and the Leadership Council. DeBauche has overseen the entire Division I governance structure and worked directly with the Legislative Council, the six cabinets and the supporting communications and coordination committee. She was also a liaison to governance representatives, external constituent groups and NCAA staff regarding legislative and governance activities.

TOURNAMENT TIEBREAKER SYSTEM Regular season standings, based on conference winning percentage in a 18-game schedule, 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 tie-breaking system will utilize the following factors, in order, until all ties are broken. Two-way and Multiple Ties 1. Percentage of matches won/lost in Conference play. 2.

In the event step 1 does not resolve the tie (i.e., if the teams have identical winning percentages), then the head-to-head match record among the teams tied is compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most matches against the other(s).

3.

If the teams remain tied after step 2, then the head-to-head games record among the teams tied will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has the highest game winning percentage against the other(s).

4.

If the teams remain tied after step 3, then the overall conference game winning percentage of each team compared to the rest of the league will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has the highest game winning percentage against all conference opponents.

5.

If the teams are tied after step 4, then the total number of matches won against the highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most matches against the highest seed not involved in a tie. If this does not break the tie, the number of matches won against the next highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, and so on.

6.

If the teams are tied after step 5, then the total number of games won against the highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most games against the highest seed not involved in a tie. If this does not break the tie, the number of games won against the next highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, and so on.

7.

If the teams are tied after step 6, then the head-to-head point differential of the teams tied will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has the highest point differential.

8.

If the teams are tied after step 7, then the overall point differential for all conference games of the teams tied will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has the highest overall point differential in conference play.

9.

If the teams are tied after step 8, then the total number of matches won against the highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most matches against the highest seed not involved in a tie. If this does not break the tie, the number of matches won against the next highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, and so on.

10.

If the teams are tied after step 5, then the total number of games won against the highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, with the higher seed going to the team that has won the most games against the highest seed not involved in a tie. If this does not break the tie, the number of games won against the next highest seed not involved in a tie will be compared, and so on.

11.

In the event the tie cannot be broken, seeds will be determined by a coin flip.

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.
