ABRAHAM NGONGBA

Coaching Staff Tajama Abraham Ngongba enters her third season as head women’s basketball coach at Radford University after being named the program’s sixth head coach in on May 7, 2008.

Tajama Ngongba

In her first season at the helm of Radford University’s women’s basketball program, Ngongba guided Radford to a third place regular season finish in the Big South after being picked to finish fourth. Under her direction, Taleia Moton earned first team all-conference honors and Johnette Walker was named Big South Defensive Player of the Year.

Head Coach

She earned her first collegiate coaching victory on Dec. 5, a 78-58 triumph over Southern Virginia. Another notable victory for the Highlanders during her first season included the program’s 200th Big South regular season on January 24, 2009 against Coastal Carolina. Ngongba spent four years as an assistant coach at George Washington, her alma mater, where she also served as an administrative assistant from 1999 to 2001. A former standout player at GW from 1994-1997, she has been part of 252 Colonial victories, an average of 25 per season with four Sweet 16 appearances. In all, Ngongba has played a role in more than half of head coach Joe McKeown’s 468 wins in her nine years with the Colonials. Ngongba’s primary responsibilities at George Washington include recruiting, scouting, team academics, postseason workouts and player development, with emphasis on post play. She has been instrumental in the development of Atlantic 10 First Team All-Conference post players Jessica Adair, Jessica Simmonds and Anna Montañana. She also has mentored and coached current GW honorable mention All-American Kimberly Beck, all-conference performer Sarah-Jo Lawrence and Academic All-American

20

Kenan Cole. Lawrence and Beck are now both in WNBA training camps. Prior to her return to GW in June 2004, Ngongba served as an assistant coach at Virginia Commonwealth for two seasons. At VCU, she was responsible for recruiting, development of post players, scouting and organizing the team’s preseason and summer conditioning workouts. In her two years, Ngongba helped land one of Rams’ head coach Beth Cunningham’s best recruiting classes, which included 2006 Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Year Quanitra Hollingsworth. In 2003-04, Ngongba helped guide VCU to a 10-8 conference record and an upset of third-seeded Hofstra in the CAA Tournament. Ngongba spent the 2001-02 season as an assistant on Bob Foley’s staff at Atlantic-10 rival University of Richmond. She helped the Spiders to an 8-8 mark and a second-place tie in the West Division in the program’s inaugural A-10 season. Ngongba tutored Third Team All-Atlantic 10 center Ebony Tanner and All-Rookie Team forward Kate Flavin, both of whom went on to earn all-conference honors following Ngongba’s hire at VCU. Before arriving at Richmond, Ngongba was a member of the coaching staff that helped the U.S. Virgin Islands Women’s Junior National Team to a gold medal in the 2001 Caricom Junior Basketball Championships in Nassau, Bahamas. Aside from her role as assistant coach for the Junior National Team, Ngongba also served as team captain for the U.S. Virgin Islands Women’s Senior National Team. The most prolific scorer in GW women’s basketball history, Ngongba tallied a school-record 2,134 points during her four-year career and is the only Colonial to eclipse the 2,000 career-point mark. Ngongba was named a Kodak first-team All-American as a senior in 1997 after leading the Colonials to a 28-6 record and the East Regional Final in the NCAA Tournament. She was named to the 1997 East Regional All-Tournament Team after GW defeated No. 4 North Carolina to advance to the Elite Eight. Ngongba was also a Kodak Honorable Mention All-American and a Basketball Times Honorable Mention All-America selection as a junior in 1996.


Coaching Staff Ngongba earned the 1997 Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Year Award and was the conference’s Rookie of the Year in 1994. She was a unanimous first-team all-league selection in 1996 and 1997 and earned second-team all-conference honors in 1995. Ngongba was selected to the Atlantic 10 All-Tournament Team in 1997 and was the tournament’s MVP in 1996 when GW claimed the A-10 crown. In addition to her school-record 2,134 points, Ngongba holds the school mark for the most points in one season (675 in 1996-97) and is tied with former GW assistant coach Lisa Cermignano for the most games played (130). She ranks second at GW in career scoring average (16.4 points per game), rebounds (970) and blocked shots (326). After graduating in 1997, Ngongba was drafted with the seventh pick in the fourth round of the inaugural WNBA draft by the Sacramento Monarchs. Ngongba spent the 1997 season with the Monarchs before joining the Detroit Shock for the 1998 campaign. Ngongba traveled to Nice, France, to play with Nice Cavigal for the 1998-99 season before joining McKeown’s staff at GW in October 1999, as administrative assistant. A native of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Ngongba became the sixth player and the seventh individual with ties to the women’s basketball program to be inducted into the GW Athletics Hall of Fame on January 24, 2004. She married former GW men’s basketball player Patrick Ngongba in 2003 and the couple has a daughter, Naja, and son, Patrick II.

Since its founding in 1983, the Big South Conference has matured into a competitive leader in college athletics, actively pursuing excellence on the field of play and in the classroom. The League’s growing presence as an NCAA Division I athletic conference is evident by athletic accomplishments on the national stage, innovative marketing and media partnerships, increased television packages, and quality athletic competition while intentionally fostering the academic, personal, social, athletic and leadership development of each student-athlete. This has evolved into the Conference’s mission of “Developing Leaders Through Athletics.” The Big South Conference was formed on August 21, 1983, when Charleston Southern (then Baptist College) Athletic Director Howard Bagwell and Augusta President George Christenberry began recruiting members into the Big South, receiving initial commitments from Augusta, Charleston Southern, Campbell, Coastal Carolina and Winthrop. One month later, Dr. Edward M. Singleton was selected as the League’s first Commissioner and continued to solicit new members. His efforts led to the additions of Armstrong State, Radford and UNC Asheville, giving the Big South more than the required six members to constitute an official conference. The Big South’s first year of competition was in the Fall of 1984, and in September 1986, the Big South Conference was granted fullfledged NCAA Division I status. During its infancy and prior to securing automatic bids to NCAA Championships, the Big South made early strides in earning at-large berths in several national postseason events, including volleyball, women’s basketball and women’s golf. In 1989, George F. “Buddy” Sasser replaced the retiring Dr. Singleton as Commissioner, and in 1990, the League received its first automatic bid – receiving an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Baseball Championship. Under Sasser’s seven years of leadership, the Conference implemented its public relations and compliance programs, and introduced its first-ever men’s basketball television package, featuring the Big South competing among some of the finest teams in the nation. In August 1996, Kyle B. Kallander replaced Sasser as the third Commissioner, and in his 13 years at the helm of the Big South, Kallander has been instrumental in aggressively promoting the Conference to new levels. The Conference has enjoyed record levels in marketing revenue during the past several years, he has brought television coverage to Big South women’s basketball, baseball and softball for the first time in Conference history, as well as increased national television exposure to the League as a whole through aggressive and unique television packages. Under Kallander’s leadership, the Big South developed and initiated its first long-range strategic plan, re-affirming the League’s vision as a distinctive athletic Conference committed to the quality of institutional life through athletic competition. He also spearheaded the efforts to add football as a championship sport, which came to fruition in 2002, and has solidified Conference membership with the additions of High Point, Gardner-Webb and Presbyterian, and in 2011-12, the return of charter member Campbell University. Kallander’s long range vision has also included technological advancements, as the Conference introduced its first live event video streaming in 2005 and has since expanded its video offerings to more than 600 events annually through a partnership with the member institutions, as well as the creation of several online and social media platforms. In the last 15 years, the Big South has experienced monumental growth and success in nearly every sport. During this time, the Con-

ference has had two individual National Champions, more than 200 All-Americans, has reached the “Sweet 16” in men’s soccer, women’s basketball and baseball, has received national Top 25 rankings in men’s soccer, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, men’s outdoor track & field, and men’s golf, had an individual selected to play in the NCAA Singles Championship four times in addition to the first men’s tennis doubles at-large selection, had the No. 1 ranked men’s golfer in the country, has had the nation’s top scoring men’s basketball team three consecutive years as well as the national men’s basketball scoring leader twice, received an at-large playoff berth in the Football Championship Subdivision in 2006, and had an institution finish fifth in the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships – the highest-ever team finish in an NCAA event. The Conference’s tagline, “Developing Leaders Through Athletics” was unveiled in 2008-09 in conjunction with the Conference’s 25th Anniversary. The League also honored its heritage with the Top 25 “Best of the Best” moments in League history from 1983-2008, with Liberty University’s 10-year women’s basketball championship run from 1996-2007 being crowned the No. 1 moment in the Big South’s first 25 years. The Conference’s on-field accomplishments have been duplicated in the classroom. Annually, more than 40 percent of Conference student-athletes are named to the Big South’s Presidential Honor Roll for maintaining a cumulative 3.0 grade-point average, and the League has had more than 95 Academic AllAmericans in its quarter-century of existence.

Opened in 1981, the Dedmon Center, a versatile athletic complex on the campus of Radford University, recently underwent a multi-million dollar facelift, which makes it one of the premiere collegiate athletic facilities in the Big South Conference and Mid-Atlantic region. The hardwood floor was produced by Horner Flooring, located in Dollar Bay, Michigan and founded in 1891. Along with Radford University, Horner Flooring can be found at Allen Fieldhouse (University of Kansas), The Breslin Center (Michigan State University), The Kohl Center (University of Wisconsin), ALLTEL Pavilion (Virginia Commonwealth) and the Georgia Dome, which hosted the 2002 NCAA Final Four. Branch & Associates, Inc. (Roanoke, Va.) was responsible for the largest part of the renovations, which consisted of replacing the facilities’ air-supported fabric roof with a more modernized fabric structure, supported by nine steel trusses. By replacing the air-supported roof, a new air conditioning and air circulation system is being installed throughout the facility, making it more adaptable for all seasons and a more comfortable and quiet environment. Other improvements to the Dedmon Center include a new high-tech lighting system with shutter capabilities, enhancing the pre-game as well as in-game atmosphere. The improved lighting will also create a more viewer-friendly picture for the television audience. The Dedmon Center also houses the department’s new Learning Enhancement Center (LEC), dedicated to student-athlete support services and a state-of-the-art, 5,000 square-ft. weight room dedicated to the needs of the University’s 19 varsity athletic teams. The complex features several adjoining facilities, including intercollegiate fields for baseball, softball, field hockey and tennis, along with soccer practice fields and intermural soccer, football and softball fields. In addition Patrick D. Cupp Stadium adds a intercollegiate soccer and track and field complex. The Center itself features a 1/6-mile indoor jogging track; a Learning Enhancement Center; a weight training room; the main arena featuring a main basketball floor and a secondary volleyball arena for intercollegiate competition. One of the more amazing things about the Dedmon Center is its versatility. The arena area can be customized to the current needs, including setting up a 3,200-seat arena for basketball or a 1,000-seat arena for volleyball. The arena is also used for concerts, graduation and other large university events.

Director of Athletics Since being introduced as Radford University’s Director of Athletics in the fall of 2007, Radford native Robert Lineburg has helped usher in a new era of Highlander athletics, marked by unprecedented on-and off-field improvements and successes. In his short time with the department, Lineburg has been the catalyst for a number of changes, particularly in areas such as facilities, personnel and strategic planning. His most visible influence to date has been on the Dedmon Center, where Lineburg has been involved with major renovations to the centerpiece of Radford athletics for more than 25 years. Beginning in the spring of 2008, the facility underwent transformations to the arena, including a new steel-supported roof, a new basketball floor, renovated athletic offices, a new-look natatorium, and improved athletic locker, training, and medical facilities. Along with the initial transformations to the Dedmon Center, an improved state-of-the-art strength and conditioning room, new ticket office and Learning Enhancement Center (LEC), which houses student-athlete academic support, were completed/ added in 2009. In 2010, facility upgrades included a new high-tech videoboard / sound system to the Dedmon Center as well as a new playing surface / irrigation system and dugouts to the Radford University Baseball Field. Lineburg has also overseen the hires of five new head coaches, as well as six new athletic administrators. His hires include women’s basketball head coach Taj Njongba, head volleyball coach Marci Jenkins, ROBERT LINEBURG women’s head golf coach Jeff Radford University Beeler, head men’s soccer coach Director of athletics Marc Reeves and the promotion of track and field interim director Brent Chumbley to head coaches’ status. Among the administrators added in Lineburg’s tenure are executive associate A.D. Randy Butt, head athletic trainer Chad Hyatt, assistant A.D. for communications Joey Beeler, director of student-athlete support services/senior women’s administrator Stephanie Ballein, Associate A.D. for external operations Greg Herring, and Director of Facilities Brad Epperley. As a result of the changes, Radford achieved a banner year in 200809: women’s soccer, men’s basketball, men’s tennis and softball claimed Big South conference crowns and advanced to NCAA Tournament play. Women’s soccer advanced to its fourth tournament, men’s basketball won the Big South regular-season and tournament title to advance to the NCAAs for the first time since 1998, men’s tennis made its third-straight appearance, and softball appeared for the first time and won Radford’s first-ever NCAA tournament game in any sport. Lineburg and the Highlanders backed their success in 2008-09 with a men’s tennis and softball Big South regular season title in 2009-10. Mickey Dean’s softball team went on to win their second straight conference tournament crown before advancing to the Athens, Georgia Regional final with two more NCAA Tournament victories.
