N

ow in its 65th 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 begins competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont gives 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. 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 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/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. 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 in the national semifinals. 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’ 15 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 an end 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 championships. 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 the 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. In 2011-12 Murray State put together one of the greatest seasons in OVC history, beginning the year 23-0 (an all-time OVC best) and being ranked as high as No. 7 in the coaches poll on Feb. 6. The squad was the first OVC team to be nationally-ranked since Murray State was ranked in 1997-98; in addition the top 10 ranking was the first for an OVC team since the 1970-71 campaign (WKU). The Racers would top nationally-ranked Memphis and Saint Mary’s during the season and win the league’s regular season and tournament championships. MSU earned a No. 6 seed in NCAA Tournament, the highestever seed for an OVC team since the NCAA began seeding the field in 1979. The Racers would top Colorado State 58-41 in the second round before falling to Marquette in the third round. Murray State would win 31 games overall, tying the OVC all-time record the Racers set in 2009-10. The OVC has now won NCAA Tournament games in four-straight seasons, something that has never happened in league history (three-game winning streaks from 1960-62 and 1987-89 had been the previous best streaks). Over that time period (2009-12) the OVC is one of just nine conferences nationally to win a NCAA Tournament game in each season and one of only three non-BCS leagues (joining the Atlantic 10 and WCC) to do so. 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 64 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 23 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 2012-13 season with 363 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). The OVC also has the honor of being the only conference to boast the nation’s leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists all in one season. That feat was accomplished in 1991-92 by Morehead State’s Brett Roberts (28.1 ppg), Murray State’s Popeye Jones (14.4 rpg) and Tennessee Tech’s Van Usher (8.8 apg). 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. 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

21 times in the past 31 years. Although Tennessee Tech remains the standard-bearer, five other teams have won 13 of the last 19 OVC Tournaments. UT Martin became the latest program to add its name to the list, capturing its first OVC Tournament title in 2011 and repeating as champions in 2012. 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 363139 (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. 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 Eastern Kentucky, and earned OVC Coach of the Year honors a record eight times - five times at EKU and three at MTSU. Inman came out of retirement to take the Tennessee State job and will be in his first year with the TSU program in 2012-13. Many great players have graced the hardwood over the years, including former OVC Players of the Year Brooke Armistead and Gerlonda Hardin from Austin Peay, Pam Chambers, Jerilynn Harper, Cheryl Taylor, Angela Moorehead, Roschelle Vaughn, Diane Seng, Janet Holt and Emily Christian from Tennessee Tech; Morehead State’s Donna Murphy, Priscilla Blackford and Chynna Bozeman; Eastern Kentucky’s Kim Mays; Southeast Missouri’s Gray C. Harris; and Murray State’s Ashley Hayes. Bozeman finished her collegiate career in 2010-11 by winning her second consecutive OVC Player of the Year award. Her 2,170 points ranks her eighth all-time in OVC history, her 377 made career 3-pointers is first in OVC history and sixth in NCAA history and her 1,096 career 3-point attempts ranks first in OVC history and second in NCAA history. 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 64 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 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 pre-

sented 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 211 student-athletes honored with the award, including 32 over the last three years (2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12). 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, Belmont 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.

A LOOK AT THE OVC

2012-13 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide • 5


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.

The event will take place at Bridgestone Arena 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): • 2013: New Orleans, New Orleans Arena, University of New Orleans • 2014: Nashville, Bridgestone Arena, 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 two-day 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 student-athletes, 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 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 the 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!”

The ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-10/12 and SEC are the BCS-level conferences that have won at least one game in each of the past three years. Postseason Success: The four-year winning streak in NCAA Tournament play is unprecedented in OVC history. After winning NCAA Tournament games in each 1987, 1988 and 1989, the OVC went 20 years without a NCAA victory. That changed in 2009 when Morehead State topped Alabama State 58-43 in front of a record crowd at the Opening Round game in Dayton, Ohio. A year later it was No. 13 seed Murray State who won, topping No. 4 seed Vanderbilt 66-65 when Danero Thomas nailed a buzzer-beater in San Jose. In 2011 it was Morehead State’s turn again, as the Eagles were seeded 13th and sent to Denver to battle No. 4-seed Louisville. MSU got off to a 15-2 lead nearly eight minutes into the game but trailed 61-59 with 31 seconds to play. On its final possession senior Demonte Harper nailed a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 4.3 seconds remaining to give Morehead State the lead and Kenneth Faried blocked Louisville’s last shot attempt to seal the victory. Last season it was Murray State, who once again won, knocking off Colorado State 58-41 in the second round in a game played in Louisville. With Record 12 Schools, OVC To Use Divisional Play for 2012-13: For the first time this year the OVC will use divisional play for men’s and women’s basketball. The addition of Belmont University on July 1, 2012 gave the OVC 12 member institutions, the largest the Conference has been since it was formed in 1948 (the OVC is currently the nation’s eighth-oldest Division I conference). The East Division includes Belmont, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech. The West Division includes Austin Peay, Eastern Illinois, Murray State, Southeast Missouri State, SIUE and UT Martin. Some of the factors in determining the divisions included geography and balance while also being mindful of matchups and rivalries (both current and future). Belmont Joins OVC; SIUE Eligible for Postseason Play: After previously being a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference, Belmont University officially joined the OVC as the league’s 12th member of July 1, 2012. The Bruins men’s basketball team has made five NCAA Tournament appearances in the past seven seasons. SIUE Ready for Postseason Play: On July 1, 2008 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) became a member of the Ohio Valley Conference. Last season marked the first for the Cougars playing a full OVC schedule. After completing its reclassification process to Division I following last year, SIUE is now eligible for both the OVC and NCAA Tournaments this season. OVC Tournament Format and Home Enters Year No. 3: After debuting a new format and home for the OVC Tournament in 2011, the tournament will once again return to Municipal Auditorium in Nashville this year. Once again the top eight men’s and women’s teams will qualify for the tournament and advance to play in Nashville (as opposed to playing first round games in campus sites) under a merit-based format. The No. 1 and 2 seeds will receive two byes to the semifinals while the No. 3 and 4 seeds will receive one bye into the quarterfinals. The first round will include the No. 5 seed against the No. 8 seed and the No. 6 seed against the No. 7 seed. With divisional play being used for the first time this year, the winner of each division is guaranteed one of he top two seeds while seeds 3-8 will be based on overall conference record regardless of division. OVC Digital Network: The OVC launched the OVC Digital Network (OVCDN) in August 2012. The OVCDN is the exclusive home for live web streamed athletic contests involving OVC schools. This marks the seventh year the OVC has streamed live events, but first time the events will be offered free of charge and in an HD format and will feature improved quality thanks to an investment in new equipment conference-wide. Fans will also find it easier to log onto OVCDigitalNetwork.com and access the streams and can do so without any registration. The events will be available on any computer, tablet or smart phone without needing any special downloads or apps thanks new streaming technology. Preseason Predictions: Is being picked the preseason favorite always a good thing? Over the past 33 years of preseason polls that were available, the league’s head coaches and sports information directors correctly picked the eventual OVC regular season cham-

Sears BracketBusters Format: In its 11th year, Sears BracketBusters is an ESPN television property that was tremendously successful with its first 10 events in February of 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. 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 eighth straight year, every Ohio Valley Conference schools will participate in the BracketBusters series. Six schools will host games this season while the other six will go on the road. Austin Peay has competed in the most BracketBusters games (9) while Murray State has the best record in the event (6-2). What Makes BracketBusters Different From Other Events: What sets Sears 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 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-be-named opponent. The return game of each series is made in November or December in a season following the BracketBusters game. This return game allows for the completion of the two-game series contract and is not part of the BracketBusters event in that second year. BracketBusters Pool Versus Field: The Sears BracketBusters pool is defined as the original 122 participating teams prior to the pairing of teams for the television package. The Sears BracketBusters field is defined as the 26 teams chosen for the 13 games televised on the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3). 2013 Sears 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 in late January.

TEAM NOTES • Head coach Dave Loos, a five-time OVC Coach of the Year (1991, 1997, 2003, 2004, 2007) became the winningest coach in OVC history during the 2009-10 season. Loos, now in his 23rd season at APSU, is the current Dean of OVC coaches. He is one of just nine Division I coaches to be at the same program for at least 20 years. He is currently the only Division I head men’s basketball coach to also serve as his school’s athletic director. • Senior Anthony Campbell, who has missed much of the last two seasons with knee problems, needs just 76 points to reach 1,000 for his career. • The Govs will possess a relatively inexperienced roster in 2012-13. The players on the team started just 40 out of a possible 160 starts last year.

TEAM NOTES • Due to historic NCAA APR penalties, Jacksonville State is ineligible to participate in the NCAA Tournament this season. Due to that face the Gamecocks are not eligible to win the OVC regular season or tournament championships in 2012-13. • The Gamecocks are coming off of just their second OVC Tournament win in program history and return all but one player from that postseason roster. • Jacksonville State finished the 2011-12 season with a 9-3 run that got them to .500 in league play and advanced them into the quarterfinals of the OVC Tournament with a first-round win over preseason favorite Austin Peay. • JSU returns its top two scorers from a year ago in Brian Williams (13.2 ppg) and Tarvin Gaines (10.9 ppg). The Gamecocks also return 83 percent (53.7 of 64.9 ppg) of their scoring from a year ago and 70 percent (23.2 of 33.0 rpg) of their rebounding.

TEAM NOTES • Junior Mike Liabo enters the 2012-13 season just 174 points shy of becoming the program’s 16th member of the 1,000 point club. He led the team in scoring last season (15.2 points per game) and has cracked double-figures in 50 of his 63 career games. • This season also marks the return of Terence Smith, who was granted a medical redshirt in 2011-12. Smith was at times UT Martin’s best player down the stretch as a true freshman in 2010-11, finishing the season with averages of 11.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. • Also returning in 2012-13 is Myles Taylor, who became just the third Skyhawk to ever win OVC Freshman of the Year honors last season. Taylor reached double-figures in the scoring column 21 times last season, including 11 straight and 17 of 19 to close out his season. • The Skyhawks have added two new faces to the coaching staff in Lance Egnatz (assistant coach) and Mark Halsell (graduate assistant). Egnatz has served as the top assistant at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn. for the past four seasons while Halsell recently completed his playing career at Park University in Parksville, Mo.

For the 19th time in 20 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 2013 edition of “Music City Madness” will include a variety of exciting action both on and off the court. The tournament made a return to Municipal Auditorium in 2011 with a new merit-based format. The combined men’s and women’s championship has been held at Municipal Auditorium six times: 1994, 1995, 1996, 2004, 2008, 2011 and 2012. The men also held its championship at the venue in 1989. Prior to the tournament being at the end of the season, the 1967 tournament was also held at Municipal Auditorium in December. After first round games were previously played on campus sites, now all eight men’s and all eight women’s teams that qualify for the tournament field gather at a single site for the entire tournament. In 2011 the bracket shifted from a traditional 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, etc. format to a merit-based format that rewards the top teams during the regular season with byes into the quarterfinals and semifinals. The first round of each the men’s and women’s tournament will feature the No. 5 seed against the No. 8 seed and the No. 6 seed against the No. 7 seed. The winners of those games will advance to the quarterfinals to face the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds (who received a bye). The winners of those quarterfinal matchups will advance to the semifinals to face the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds (who received a pair of byes). With a change to divisional play in 2012-13, the East and West divisional winners are guaranteed to be the top two seeds in the tournament, while seeds 3-8 will be determined by Conference record, regardless of division. The 2013 Championship marks the 50th time the men’s event has been held, making it the fourth oldest Division I championship in the country (behind only the Southern, ACC and SEC). Future OVC Basketball Tournament dates are March 5-8, 2014 and March 4-7, 2015. Last season Murray State won its record 15th OVC Championship by topping Tennessee State 54-52.

90 • 2012-13 Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Media Guide

Belmont Joins the League: Belmont officially joins the league this year bringing the Ohio Valley Conference to 12 teams for the first times. Belmont competes in 17 sports (8 men’s sports and 9 women’s sports), 16 of which will compete in the OVC (the exception being men’s soccer which is not sponsored by the OVC). The Bruins have competed in the Atlantic Sun Conference since 2001-02 and will compete in its final year in that league in 2011-12 before joining the OVC. Since 2001-02 Belmont has won 30 Atlantic Sun Championships, the second most in the conference. Bruins athletic teams have made recent NCAA Tournament appearances in men’s and women’s basketball, women’s soccer, men’s tennis and volleyball. SIUE full Division I Member: After the past five season of reclassification, SIUE is now a full Division I member and will be eligible for postseason play. In its first season with a full OVC schedule, the Cougars posted a 12-4 record and would have been the third seed on the league tournament. OVC Hosting the 2014 Women’s Final Four: The OVC and the Nashville Sports Council will host the 2014 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Final Four. The event will be held at the Bridgestone Arena. In conjunction with the 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. OVC Women’s Hoops on Monday Nights: OVC women’s basketball will again be featured on Monday night’s. The league approved in 2011 to move away from the men’s/women’s Thursday night doubleheaders and move the women’s games to Monday night. OVC Basketball to Play in Divisions: With the addition of Belmont and with SIUE gaining full Division I status and becoming eligible for postseason competition, the OVC will feature 12 schools in the sports of men’s and women’s basketball, softball and volleyball for the first time this coming year. The league announced in February its intention to use a divisional scheduling model for the sports that featured 12 member institutions. The East Division will include Belmont, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech while the West Division will include Austin Peay, Eastern Illinois, Murray State, Southeast Missouri State, SIUE and UT Martin. In the sports of men’s and women’s basketball, the top team in each division based on conference winning percentage automatically earns a berth into the OVC Basketball Championship. The next six teams with the highest conference winning percentage will also earn a bid, regardless of division. The No. 1 seed will go to the divisional winner with the top conference winning percentage, while the No. 2 seed will automatically go to the other divisional winner. The remaining six teams will be seeded 3-8 by conference winning percentage, regardless of division. OVC Associate Commissioner Named to NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee: Brad Walker, the Ohio Valley Conference’s associate commissioner for operations/chief operating officer, has been appointed to the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. Walker and Wisconsin senior associate athletic director Terry Gawlik are the new additions to the 10-person committee. This year’s chair is Carolayne Henry, associate commissioner of compliance at the Mountain West Conference. Walker’s term officially begins in September and will last for five years. OVC Digital Network: The Ohio Valley Conference has launched the OVC Digital Network (www.OVCDigitalNetwork.com), the new and improved home for live streaming of athletic contests involving OVC member institutions. One of the top new features of the Digital


Network is that all events will be offered free for fans. The events will also feature improved quality with most events streaming in high definition (HD). Fans will also have easier access to the streams, easily accessing them through links at OVCDigitalNetwork.com without any registration being required. The streams will be available on any computer, tablet or smart phone without any app or software download thanks to the use of HTML5 technology. The portal also includes live stats and social media integration to give fans even more interaction. The streaming efforts will concentrate on football and men’s and women’s basketball in the first year, with all home non-conference and conference contests featuring OVC schools in those sports airing on the platform. 2012-13 In Review: Tennessee Tech was selected to win the 2012-11 title but it was UT Martin who its second regular-season crown. The Skyhawks compiled a 23-9 overall record and a 15-1 mark in the OVC. UT Martin received a double-bye into the semifinals where it defeated No. 4 Murray State, 102-77, to move into the championship game. The Skyhawks then beat Tennessee Tech, 82-65, for the second year in a row to win the OVC Tournament Title. SIUE’s Amanda Levens was named the OVC Coach of the Year after leading her team to a 12-4 league mark in its first year with a full conference schedule. UT Martin’s Jasmine Newsome was named the OVC Player of the Year while Eastern Illinois’ Ta’Kenya Nixon earned Defensive Player of the Year honors. SIUE’s Katie Hempen was tabbed as the OVC Freshman of the Year. The OVC had a record four teams in the postseason last year. UT Martin earned the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament while Easter Illinois was the OVC’s automatic bid to the WNIT. SIUE and Tennessee Tech were invited to play in the Women’s Basketball Invitational.

EIU participated in the WNIT for the second time in three years when they faced Texas Tech in the first round of the tournament, falling 85-71 in Lubbock, Texas. • Of the team’s 11 returning players, four were starters on last year’s team – highlighted by three-time All-OVC First Team selection Ta’Kenya Nixon who was named the conference’s “Defensive Player of the Year” for the second time in her career. Joining Nixon on the all-conference team was classmate Mariah King who earned second-team honors for the second consecutive season.

• Jacksonville State opens its 30th season of women’s basketball and the third year under Annette Watts against in-state foe and Southeastern Conference member Alabama. • The Gamecocks return two of their top-three scorers from last season in sophomore Briana Morrow and Danielle Vaughn. Morrow led JSU as a freshman with an 11.4 scoring average and pulled down 7.5 rebounds per game. The Nashville, Tenn.-native was named to the OVC All-Newcomer Team in 2011-12. Vaughn, a rising senior, nearly averaged a double-double with 10.8 points per game and 9.2 rebounds per contest. Sophomore Candace Morton returns as Jax State’s top-scoring guard with an 8.2 scoring mark in her first year in the program. • Watts brought in a host of new Gamecocks for the 2012-13 campaign as there will be seven new faces on the JSU bench. Watts has added pieces from the junior college ranks and on the prep level. Junior Dashaunna Truss, a transfer from Stetson and Marikaye Gardner, from Jefferson College, will add depth at the guard spots.

Robinson is currently 12th on the school’s all-time point list with 1,097. • Scheduled to make her return to the line-up this season is junior Jessica Winfrey. Winfrey sat out last season with a redshirt due to injury. During her freshman year, in 2010-11, she averaged 10.6 points 9.7 rebounds per game. Her 9.7 rebounds per game placed her 34th in the nation in rebound average. She ended her freshman campaign by being named to the OVC All-Newcomer team.
