St. Francis College St. Francis College was founded in 1859 as St. Francis Academy by a group of newly arrived Franciscan Brothers from Ireland. The Brother’s mission was to educate young men from working-class families in the Brooklyn Diocese. St. Francis Academy provided a sound education with a rigorous curriculum and personal support, all for a modest tuition, characteristics that endure today. In 1884, St. Francis College received its Charter from New York State establishing a literary college which could award diplomas, honors, and degrees. In 1926, St. Francis College built a larger campus near its original site in Cobble Hill, where it remained until the 1960s when the College relocated to its current site on Remsen Street in Brooklyn Heights. The new location and opening the College’s doors up to women for the first time led to an influx of students from all five boroughs of New York City and beyond, doubling the student population. The cornerstone of the St. Francis College experience is academics. All students complete a core curriculum that offers a foundation for intellectual and professional growth; once completed, they choose from one of 74 majors, many in the liberal arts and others geared to specific professions, included a five year combined Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Accounting. An honors program serves students of high achievement and a broad scholarship program supports those who are likely to perform well academically. An NCAA-Division I institution, St. Francis College offers students the opportunity to play for any of 19 varsity men’s and women’s athletic teams, including its men’s basketball team, whose program is among the oldest in New York City. Teams compete in many well-known New York City venues such as the USTA National Tennis Center, home of the U.S. Open, Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island and Aviator Sports at Floyd Bennett Field. Today, first-generation college-goers and students of all backgrounds are among St. Francis College’s diverse population. Its Catholic-Franciscan heritage, central to life at the College, allows faculty and administrators to embrace, support, and encourage all students as they pursue fulfillment of their dreams.

Athletic Department Irma Garcia,

Director of Athletics

Irma Garcia has been a part of St. Francis College Athletics for the past 24 years as a student-athlete, coach and administrator. In the summer of 2007, Garcia was named the Terriers’ Director of Athletics.  In fact, she is the first Hispanic female to lead a Division I program. Garcia’s leadership, compassion and dedication to the St. Francis College Department of Athletics has touched many and her induction to the College’s Hall of Fame in 2005 was a well deserved honor.  In 1976, Garcia entered St. Francis College as a studentathlete on the women’s basketball team to play for St. Francis Hall of Fame Coach Diane Nolan. Upon graduation, Irma began her career as a physical education teacher and girls’ basketball coach at St. Joseph by the Sea on Staten Island.  Garcia returned to St. Francis in 1988 when she was named the 8th women’s basketball coach in St. Francis College history.  During Irma’s 11-year tenure, her players and teams received many individual and collective honors.  Under her guidance, 12 of her women’s basketball players were honored on post-season Northeast Conference (NEC) teams (four NEC First-Team All-Conference Players, two NEC Second-Team All-Conference Players, five NEC AllRookie Team Players, and one Newcomer of the Year). Five former players were inducted into the College’s Hall of Fame.  Irma’s women’s basketball teams were also among the NCAA elite in the classroom.  Her 1998-99 team was honored by the WBCA for having the 4th highest team grade-point-average among nearly 300 Division I women’s basketball teams in the country and the 1997-98 team ranked 23rd in the nation in team grade-point-average.  Garcia also coached the first St. Francis women’s basketball player recruited to play professional basketball, Carolyn Harvey.  After the 1997-98 season, Garcia was honored by her colleagues as the Northeast Conference Coach of the Year.  In addition to her responsibilities as head women’s basketball coach, Garcia also served as the College’s Department of Athletics Senior Woman Administrator.  Her administrative responsibilities included monitoring studentathlete financial aid and she was the primary liaison to the College’s admissions and financial aid offices.  Irma was also instrumental in fundraising for the then-new women’s basketball locker room. Following the 1998-99 season, Garcia retired from coaching and was named the St. Francis College Associate Director of Athletics.  In that role, she also was the Director of Student-Athlete Services and became the department’s business manager where she oversaw the athletic department’s budget and purchasing activities.  Garcia earned a master’s degree from Brooklyn College in 2001 in Sports Administration.  She is an active member of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of 8

Athletics (NACDA), the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletic Administrators (NACWAA), American Council on Education (AEC), Board member of the Minority Opportunities Association (MOAA), Public Schools Athletic League, and sits on the NCAA’S MOIC Committee.

2010-11 outlook

C O L L E G E

T E R R I E R S St. Francis College has been buzzing about the return of Glenn Braica to Remsen Street. The Terriers’ long-time assistant was named the 17th coach in the history of the program last April after Brian Nash suddenly resigned from his post. You can make a strong case that the Terriers will compete for one of the top-spots in the Northeast Conference standings this season. Three starters will return to the fold, two of them, senior guards Ricky Cadell and Akeem Bennett, have added All Northeast Conference honors to their resumes. In fact, St. Francis is the only NEC program to return two players with All-Conference accolades under their belts. Cadell was a Second Team All-NEC selection as a sophomore in 2008-2009 and is the leading returning scorer on the circuit. Bennett also garnered Second Team honors in his initial campaign a season ago after transferring from Western Oklahoma State College. Junior point guard Justin Newton, who started 26 contests, improved his game tremendously last season and developed into one of the surest ball handlers and top defenders in the league. Perhaps no other team in the NEC will have as much talent and experience returning in the backcourt this season than the Terriers, who figure to start three guards on opening night. Cadell pumped in

15.9 points per game last season and his 1,158 career points rank among the top-15 on the all-time school list. In fact, the Manhattan native has an opportunity to become the Terriers’ all-time leading scorer with a big senior season. Last year, he drained a career-high 72 treys and scored 20 or more points on eight different occasions. Bennet made an instant impact in his initial season and played three different positions last season, including the lead guard spot. One of the most wellrounded players in the league, there is little Bennett didn’t do on the court for the Terriers last season. The high-flying 6’3” Long Island native plays with a fearless swagger and isn’t afraid to mix it up underneath as evidenced by his team-best 6.4 rebounds per game. Bennett, who recorded five “double-doubles,” also led St. Francis (NY) with 4.0 assists per game, 2.2 steals per game, and ranked second in scoring with 14.0 points per game. Newton was second in the conference in assistturnover ratio (101 assists/51 turnovers) and he also finished fourth in the NEC in steals (1.93 per game). Two newcomers, Adam Chmielewski and Dre Calloway will push Newton for minutes at the point. Chmielewski is a combo guard who played at Champlain St. Lambert High School in Montreal, Canada. Chmielewski, who averaged 16.0 points and 8.0 assists per game last season, owns a terrific handle and has a great feel for the game. He helped lead the Cavaliers to the 2010 CCAA Men’s National Basketball Championships and scored a team-high 25 points against NAIT in the first game of the tournament. Lefty point guard Dre Calloway played at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colorado last season. He managed to average 7.0 points, 3.2 assists (3-1 assist/turnover ratio), and 1.0 steals per game for the Plainsmen despite missing a month due to sickness. Prior to Northeastern, the Manhattan (NY) native helped lead Lincoln High School (Denver, Colorado) to the Class 4A state finals in 2008 and scored 14 points in the championship game. Calloway, who began his high school career at Rice (NY) in 2004-2005, was a 2008 Denver Post All State 1st Team pick. He also attended Our Saviour Lutheran (NY) from 2005 through 2007.  There will be plenty of competition in the frontcourt as well with the graduation of Kayode Ayeni, Herman Wrice, and Nigel Byam. Sophomore Akeem Johnson was a pleasant surprise last season after he was hurried into major minutes due to season-ending injuries to Byam (shoulder) and junior Alexander Harrington (knee). Johnson shot a league-high 57 percent in conference games and averaged 6.8 points in 22.4 minutes per outing during the conference slate. Harrington played in just eight contests last season due to the injury but showed flashes of solid play on both ends of the floor. Junior three-point specialist Stefan Perunicic is always a threat from anywhere on the court. His 147 treys over his first two seasons are on pace to establish a new

G U I D E

school mark in the category. Fellow countryman 6’8” Milos Trivic is expected to compete for minutes after redshirting last season. The freshman enrolled at St. Francis last winter and was able to practice and travel with the team for the final two months of the season. Trivic plays with abundant energy and possesses a workman-like attitude on the floor. Junior Richard Clark is the tallest player on the roster at 6”10”. The coaching staff has been pleased with his work ethic and is hopeful that the Great Britain native can make an impact this season. A newcomer to watch in the frontcourt will be junior transfer Travis Nichols. At just 6-4 and 215 pounds, Nichols is an extremely strong player who is skilled on the inside as well as the perimeter. This past summer he was the second leading scorer on the New York City team that participated in the Empire State Games. Nichols starred at Food & Finance High School in Manhattan, helping the squad reach the PSAL Class A finals in 2008. That season, Nichols poured in 23.5 points per game and was named to the NY Daily News All-Manhattan Second Team and was also a NY Post All-PSAL honorable mention pick. Last season, he averaged 5.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game at Gulf Coast (FL.) Community College. 6’8” freshman Matt Milk is expected to log quality minutes in the frontcourt. Milk is a rugged power forward/center who played three years at Upper Room Christian High School (Dix Hills, NY) before finishing up his prep career at Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Pine Crest in 2009-2010. Milk, who was a teammate of Kentucky’s Brandon Knight last season, helped lead the Panthers to the Broward County Class 3A championship game and a 24-5 record, averaging 5.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game.  The 2010-2011 season will begin with a road trip to Atlantic Coast power Boston College on November 12 and South Florida of the Big East on November 15. The Terriers will make their home debut against Howard on November 21. The highlight of the non-conference schedule will be an appearance in the historic Madison Square Garden Holiday Festival on December 20 and December 21 along with St. John’s, Davidson, and Northwestern. “It’s great for our program to be able to play in the Garden on consecutive nights,” Braica said. “I’m thrilled that our fans will be able to watch us play against some of the best programs in the country on one of the biggest stages in the world.” Coach Braica is excited about what he’s seen since taking over the program last spring and is looking forward to working with this group. “The guys came back to school in great shape and are working hard to prove that they are a good team. I think our students and alumni are going to enjoy watching us play.”

rooklyn- born Glenn Braica was named the 17th head coach in the history of the St. Francis College men’s basketball program.  Braica replaced Brian Nash, who resigned for personal reasons on April 7, 2010 “This is a great day for St. Francis College basketball,” Garcia said at Braica’s introductory press conference. “Glenn was a solid coach for us when he was here the first time. With Glenn calling the offense, the Terriers were in the top four in the conference almost every year.  He knew how to win then, and now with six years in the Big East under his belt, he’s coming back with incredible experience that will give our program a huge lift toward the upper echelon of the Northeast Conference.” Braica, who has spent the last six seasons as an assistant at St. John’s under Norm Roberts, is no stranger to St. Francis College. The native New Yorker patrolled the Terriers’ sidelines for 15 years and was the Associate Head Coach from the 2000-01 season to 2003-04 under Ron Ganulin. During Braica’s last seven years at St. Francis, the Terriers posted a 118-83 record, including an 88-42 mark in the NEC and captured two regular season titles. They finished with a .500 or better record in the league seven-straight years, at that time the longest active streak in the league. They also reached the NEC Semifinals five times and had two championship game appearances in Braica’s last five seasons. “I’m extremely excited to be the new head coach at St. Francis College,” Braica said.  “I would like to thank Irma and the administration for giving me this opportunity. “I believe that the experience I have gained in all facets of coaching has prepared me for the challenge of re-establishing St. Francis as one of the best programs in the Northeast Conference. It’s my desire to work with people of high integrity and caliber, people who understand the importance of academics and the values of

22

2 0 1 0 - 1 1 St. Francis College.  I will build a program that properly reflects the institution’s high expectations of its student-athletes in the classroom, on the court and in the community.” “With Glenn we get a true Brooklynite; someone who has spent his entire career making connections within the New York City basketball community,” added AD Garcia. “He’s someone who cares about his student-athletes not just when they play for him, but years later. He is their mentor for life.” He served as the recruiting coordinator and was instrumental in on-court coaching, scouting, individual workouts, preseason and postseason conditioning, film exchange and the monitoring of each player’s academic progress. He was also heavily involved in player development at St. Francis, and helped orchestrate the Terriers’ offensive system, which ranked first or second in the NEC in each of the last five seasons he was on staff. During his tenure the squad emerged from the league’s lower tier and went on to become one of the conference’s marquee programs, boasting two regular season conference championships. From 1998-2004, the Terriers had one player named the league’s Player of the Year, six first-team All-NEC selections, five secondteam All-NEC honorees, two players that lead the league in scoring, two NEC Rookies of the Year and a NEC Defensive Player of the Year. Braica recruited and coached several student-athletes that would go on to pro basketball careers during his time with the Terriers. “Coach Nash built a great foundation here at St. Francis,” added Head Coach Braica. “We have a strong core of returning players and I look forward to building on what he started.” Braica attended St. Agnes High School and Bishop Ford in Brooklyn in the early 1980s and graduated from Queens College in 1989. Braica began his coaching

career at New York City Tech as an assistant in 1988. He also served as a teacher at The Reece School and in the New York City Board of Education from 1989-1994. When Norm Roberts became head coach at St. John’s, Braica, a teammate at Queens College, was his first hire. He is a proven recruiter, scout and strategist, and was instrumental in helping St. John’s rebuild its program. Braica’s oncourt instruction, particularly with the St. John’s guards and wing players and All-Metro selections Eugene Lawrence, DJ Kennedy, and Paris Horne, gave the Red Storm improved perimeter play over the last six seasons. He has a long list of successful recruits from New York City including Malik Boothe, Justin Burrell, Dwight Hardy, Sean Evans and Horne. “I truly believe that Glenn has the whole package,” said Roberts.  “He brings experience, tremendous coaching ability as well as the personality and demeanor to promote and elevate St. Francis College to the top of the Northeast Conference.” Braica was also praised by Roberts for his ability to reach out to the community and Red Storm alumni, bringing former players back into the fold, a component that was lacking before his arrival.  He was also one of the co-directors of the Norm Roberts basketball camp, helping to increase enrollment from 75 campers in 2004 to 260 kids per session in 2009. From 2001-03, Braica was the head coach for the Empire State Games New York City men’s open team, which won gold medals in 2001 and 2002, as well as a silver medal in 2003. The teams included former St. John’s players Anthony Glover, Andre Stanley and Sharif Fordham and former Texas standout and current NBA player Royal Ivey. Braica and his wife, Christine, live in Brooklyn.

History of the Men’s Basketball Program

St. Francis College boasts the oldest basketball program among New York City’s colleges, putting its first players on the court in 1896 only five years after Dr. James Naismith invented the game. The College’s first recorded game came in 1901 against Brown University. The boys from Brooklyn finished the 1901 season with a 13-1 mark. St. Francis was a major player on the sports scene during the City’s college basketball glory days of the 1940s and 1950s. The 1942 squad averaged 59 points per game and in 1949 the Terriers became the first team in the New York City area to have its games broadcast on television. St. Francis defeated Seton Hall in the inaugural telecast on WPIX. In the ‘50s the team competed in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) several times and was ranked second in the nation in 1955, a season in which the Terriers strung together 18 consecutive wins. In the 1953-1954 season, the Terriers accumulated the highest win total in the 105-year history of St. Francis basketball, 23 wins and 5 losses. That year, the St. Francis College Terriers participated in the NIT for the first time in school history, losing to Holy Cross in the quarterfinals. In 2003, the Terriers participated in the Preseason NIT for the first time in school history, losing to the University of Massachusetts in the first round. The 1998-1999 team, had their first 20-win season in 43 years. Prior to the 1998-99 season, the last St. Francis team to surpass the 20-win mark was the 1955-1956 team led by head coach Daniel Lynch, with an overall record of 21-4. In the last seven years, the Terriers have come close to winning their first Northeast Conference championship and earning an invitation to the NCAA basketball tournament. During that time the team has won two NEC regular season titles – including a share of the crown in 2003-04 – and has made five NEC Tournament semifinal and two championship game appearances.
