SOUTH ATLANTIC CONFERENCE BASKETBALL 2009-10

THIS IS THE SAC The South Atlantic Conference is in its 33nd year of athletic tradition and excellence. The conference has enjoyed tremendous success due to dedicated people building a premier athletic conference throughout its history. The distant forerunner of the South Atlantic Conference was the North State Atlantic Conference (NSIAC). The NSIAC was formed when the “Little Six”, as it was called, broke from the North Carolina Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1930. These charter members included Lenoir-Rhyne College, Atlantic Christian, Catawba College, Guilford College, Elon College, and High Point University. The North State continued to grow over the next 30 years, adding Western Carolina (1933), East Carolina (1947) and Pfeiffer (1960). A name change became necessary when the league accepted Newberry as its first South Carolina member in 1961. The league took on the name Carolinas Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (CIAC) on May 20th of that year. The CIAC saw several changes in the following years as East Carolina withdrew from the league in 1962. Appalachian State and Western Carolina followed in 1971 and 1976. All three landed in the Southern Conference. The South Atlantic Conference was founded in 1975 solely as a football conference. The league received its name from a contest in which Kurt Brenneman of Greensboro, NC became the first to submit the SAC-8 moniker. The SAC-8 consisted of Carson-Newman College, Catawba College, Elon College, Gardner-Webb University, Lenoir-Rhyne College, Mars Hill College, Newberry College, and Presbyterian College. Dr. Fred Bentley, of Mars Hill College, was named league president for its inaugural year, by a vote of the member institutions. After the first season of play in the SAC-8, the Bears of Lenoir-Rhyne College captured the first football title. In 1989, the league’s 15th year of operation, the South Atlantic Conference became a comprehensive, all-sports conference. Doug Echols was named the league’s first Commissioner. That year the South Atlantic Conference sponsored 10 sports - football, men’s

and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s soccer, volleyball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis. Later the conference grew to 14 championship sports by adding women ‘s soccer (1990), men’s and women’s cross country (1993) and women’s golf (1999). The South Atlantic Conference was com-

posed of the same eight member institutions from 1975 until 1988, when Wingate University replaced Newberry College as the eighth member institution. Newberry later rejoined the conference in 1996. In July of 1998, Tusculum College was admitted as a member of the league, and Lincoln Memorial University began play in the conference in the 2006-07 academic year. Brevard College was admitted as a provisional member in 2007. In 2008, Echols retired after serving as Commissioner for 19 years and Patrick Britz was hired as the new Commissioner. In July 2010, Anderson (S.C.) University will become the league’s 10th member. Today the conference is a group of nine private, liberal and civic arts colleges and universities, similar in size and athletic philosophy. Since becoming eligible for NCAA Division II postseason play in 1993, the league has sent representatives from all of its sponsored sports to NCAA postseason play. The league membership now includes Brevard College in Brevard, N.C.; Carson-Newman in Jefferson City, TN; Catawba College in Salisbury, NC; Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, NC; Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN; Mars Hill College in Mars Hill, NC; Newberry College in Newberry, SC; Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN; and Wingate University in Wingate, NC.

The Echols Athletic Excellence Award is symbolic of the most successful athletic department following each South Atlantic Conference sports year. The award is presented annually to the athletic department that earns the highest overall finish based on regular season standings throughout the year. Points are awarded on a 9-8-7-6-54-3-2-1 system based on the final regular season standings for each sport. The trophy is presented at the SAC Annual Meeting each June. The award was named in honor of former Commissioner Doug Echols, who retired in 2008 after serving 19 years as the league’s first full-time Commissioner. Wingate University won the 200809 award, taking the trophy for the third year in a row.

SAC BASKETBALL NEWS Wingate’s Atkinson repeats as CCA Scholar-Athlete Of The Year ORLANDO, Fla. – Wingate University former women’s basketball player Anna Atkinson, has been named the NCAA Division II Conference Commissioners’ Association female National Scholar-Athlete of the Year, it was announced Friday, winning this prestigious honor for the second year in a row. Jake Visser, a football player from Ferris State University was named the men’s recipient. Atkinson recorded a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average as a biology major and led the Wingate University women’s basketball team as a point guard with a 16.3 point per game scoring average last season. Visser concluded his career at Ferris State with a 3.89 cumulative grade point average as a history education major as both a first team AllAmerican in the classroom and on the field. “This is a tremendous honor for Anna, Wingate University and the South Atlantic Conference,” said SAC Commissioner Patrick Britz. “Anna’s accomplishments in the classroom and on the basketball court truly epitomize of the term of student-athlete. I would like to thank Anna for the fantastic way she represented the South Atlantic Conference during her career and have no doubt she will be extremely successful in whatever professional field she chooses.” A native of Marion, NC, Anna Atkinson becomes only the second student-athlete in the Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award program to repeat as a winner. She captured the award last year. In 2000-01 and 2001-02, Douglas Hargett of the University of North Alabama was the first to repeat as winner of this prestigious honor. “Anna Atkinson earned the respect of the entire campus community during her days at Wingate University. Her achievements in the classroom and on the basketball court were remarkable. She will always be revered on our campus,” said Wingate University president Dr. Jerry McGee. Atkinson earned the South Atlantic Conference Female Athlete of the Year Award and the South Atlantic Conference Presidents’ Award, presented to the conference’s top female scholar-athlete. She is only the third person in conference history to win both of the league’s prestigious post-season

awards, winning both in back-to-back years. Atkinson also repeated as the South Atlantic Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Year after leading the Bulldogs to an 18-10 mark on the season. She was first in the country in assist-to-turnover ratio (3.51) and fourth in assists (6.64 per game). Atkinson was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America® women’s basketball first team for the second year in a row. She was awarded an NCAA post-graduate scholarship award and was a national semifinalist for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award. This past May, she graduated with highest honors from Wingate with plans to attend dental school. “A student-athlete like Anna Atkinson comes around only once in a very long time. It is rare for a student-athlete to win this award two times, but Anna Atkinson is a very rare student-athlete. She is most deserving of this recognition,” said Steve Poston, Wingate vice-president and director of athletics. “Anna Atkinson (winning this award) speaks volumes to the NCAA Division II philosophy of life in the balance. She excels on the court, in the classroom and in her service to the community.” Said Wingate women’s basketball coach Barbara Nelson: “Anna Atkinson is a very special young woman who puts the team and giving her best first over any individual awards. Anna has worked so very hard to achieve her dreams…without caring if the benefits would follow. Anna Atkinson is a great representative of the NCAA, the South Atlantic Conference and most importantly, Wingate University women’s basketball. I am so excited for her.” These awards, sponsored by Disney Sports Attractions, provide the opportunity for Division II to highlight the extraordinary achievements of its student-athletes. DII CCA President and Commissioner of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Jim Naumovich said that the award winners are outstanding examples of the mission of NCAA Division II. “NCAA Division II emphasizes providing student-athletes growth opportunities through academic achievement, athletic competition and engagement with the com-

munity. All of these learning experiences have provided the scholar-athlete award winners with a path to graduation and successful lives ahead. We are grateful to Disney Sports for helping us to recognize the academic and athletic accomplishments of these exceptional Division II student-athletes.” With a strong commitment to education and a long-standing relationship with Division II athletics, the involvement of Disney Sports with the Division II Scholar-Athlete of the Year Awards is a natural fit. “Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex has become a destination for top collegiate athletics, particularly at the Division II level,” said Fred Schoeler, Area Sports Manager for Disney Sports Attractions. “Having worked with the Division II Commissioners’ Association on the creation of Disney’s Division II Men’s and Women’s Tip Off Classic basketball tournaments, we are thrilled to continue our involvement with the Scholar-Athlete Awards, which honors the academic and athletic accomplishments of Division II’s top student-athletes.”

BREVARD TORNADOS The Brevard College men’s basketball team comes into the 2009-2010 season with a mission to improve on last season’s first year as full members of the South Atlantic Conference and NCAA Division II, having missed out on post-season play by one game. Head Coach Michael Jones returns eight players from last season, including four starters from last year’s squad, with none bigger than Preseason All-SAC First Team selection Jonathan Whitson (Clyde, N.C.). Last season Whitson led the Tornados and finished third in the conference in scoring with 19.1 points per game. The senior forward also led the SAC in rebounding, Jonathan Whitson averaging 8.7 boards per Senior forward game. Whitson, recognized last season by both the NABC and Daktronics All-Southeast Region as a Second Team selection, will be joined in the low post again this season by fellow senior Sam Carlisle (Raleigh, N.C.). The 6-10 center played in 25 games last season, starting 18 and showed both scoring ability and deft passing touch as he finished the season with 8.7 points per game and 1.8 assists, while leading the team with 1.32 blocks per game. At the other forward position, Shane Galloway (Rosman, N.C.) is the lone returner, having spent time coming off the bench in the sixth man role for Coach Jones the past two seasons. Galloway, a stand-out pitcher for the Tornados baseball team, provides the Tornados a sharp-shooting left-hander, as he connected on 30.6 percent of his three-point attempts last season, averaging 3.6 points per game.

Galloway will be joined by four newcomers this season at forward as senior transfer Jacques (Lou) Dovonou (Donala, Cameroon), junior transfer Josh Jordan (Los Angeles, Calif.), freshmen Jerel Kwasikpui (Richmond Va.) and Drew Schauss (Greens Fork, Ind.) will battle for playing time. Dovonou comes to the Tornados from Gardner-Webb University. He averaged 1.9 points and 1.7 rebounds in 38 games for the Runnin’ Bulldogs. Jordan, a 6-7 combo guard/forward, averaged 8 points and 8 rebounds per game as a Wildcat at West Los Angeles College. Kwasikpui transferred to Brevard last January from Shaw University. He will look at split time at both the forward positions. Schauss comes to the Tornados from Centerville High School where he was highly decorated and will challenge for starting minutes at small forward. At the guard spots, the Tornados deepest position by far, Coach Jones welcomes the return of the conference’s leading three-point shooter last season in senior Cody Siniard (Brevard, N.C.), as well as fellow seniors Darin Dellinger (Stanley, N.C.) and Nathan Whitmire (Rosman, N.C.). Siniard played in 26 games last season, starting nine after Whitmire went down with a season-ending injury, and connected on 49.2 percent of his three-point attempts. Dellinger, at the point was one of two starters to play in all 27 contests last season, scoring in double figures nine times last season, and setting a personal record with 10 assists against North Greenville last season. Whitmire, as a point forward last season, was given the challenging task of guarding

Jonathan Whitson the opposing team’s best scoring option while scoring double figures five times. Last season’s redshirts Jermichael Tanner (Columbus, N.C.) and Whitney Galloway (Rosman, N.C.) return to provide depth and challenge for the starting spots at the guard position. Newcomers Josh Roper (Charlotte, N.C.), Dominique Pickett (Thomasville, N.C.), and Ryson Felder (Lenoir, N.C.) will all compete for playing time this season.

CARSON-NEWMAN EAGLES The Carson-Newman men’s basketball team will rely on mixture of veterans and a wealth of talented newcomers as the Eagles have high hopes of making a statement in the South Atlantic Conference in 2009-10. C-N is coming off a 7-21 season in which it lost a number of close games, including eight by five points or less. Eagles head coach Dale Clayton, who enters his 22nd season, returns two starters from last year’s squad that led the SAC in scoring for a second straight season with an average of 87 points per game. The Eagles will rely on a trio of seniors to lead the way this season, beginning with senior point guard Jordan Dixon. The Clinton, Tenn., native started 25 games for C-N in 2008-09 and averaged 8.4 points per game. Dixon was fourth in the SAC in assists as he dished out a career-high 119 dimes. He also pulled down 3.4 rebounds per game and was second on the team in steals with 45. Senior forward Darron Maxtion is C-N’s leading returner in scoring and rebounding after averaging 8.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per game a year ago. He was also third in the conference in field goal percentage as he connected on 60 percent of his shots. Senior guard/forward Tray Okoth will also be counted on to lead the Eagles after averaging 7.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game last season. Returning to join Dixon in the backcourt will be sophomore guard Cameron Sharp. The Knoxville, Tenn., native redshirted last year to recover from a broken hand. Sharp-

saw action in 22 games as a true freshman. He averaged six points per contest and distributed 64 assists to earn a spot on the AllSAC freshman team in 2007-08. Junior forwards Kevin Hare and Justin Walker also return to give the Eagles some added depth. Hare averaged five points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season and is CN’s leading returner in 3-point shooting as he made 34 percent (18-of-53) of his attempts. Walker saw action in 19 games and averaged 4.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. Guard Michael Nicolo returns to the Eagles for his sophomore season after seeing time in six games. Clayton will turn to several newcomers to play key roles this season, including sophomore forward Quinche Dowdell, junior guard J.J. Wesley and freshman guard Trey Caruthers. Dowdell joins the Eagles after playing the 2008-09 season at Division I Appalachian State University. Wesley comes to Mossy Creek from Connors State College in Warner, Okla. The Mobile, Ala., native averaged 11 points per game while leading Connors State to a 28-9 record and a berth in the Final Four of the NJCAA National Championship in 2008-09. Caruthers will see time at guard after a stellar career at Harpeth High School in Kingston Springs, Tenn. He led the Indians to a 95-36 record in four years and averaged 19.7 points, 9.9 rebounds, three assists and 2.7 steals per contest as a senior to earn AllRegion honors. Caruthers was also a three-

time All-District Tournament and two-time All-District performer. C-N added some size to its frontcourt in the offseason with the additions of transfer Brandon Evans and freshman Joe Meady. Evans, a 6-9 junior, played at Longwood University last season and recorded 21 blocks as a sophomore. The 6-8 Meady was a standout at Carter High School in Strawberry Plains, Tenn., where he led the Hornets to a 23-12 record and a first-ever state tournament berth a year ago. True freshmen Collin Crane and Tyler Cross and junior transfers Erwin Staten and Cameron Hall are also expected to battle for playing time in C-N’s rotation this season.

CATAWBA INDIANS Catawba made its third straight trip to the NCAA II regionals in 2008-09. The Indians return a solid nucleus to try for a fourth run this season, including all of their backcourt from last year’s 22-10 squad. Heading the list is first team All-South Atlantic Conference and second team NABC All-Southeast Region performer Antonio Houston. The senior has led the team in scoring in each of his first three seasons and sits fifth on Catawba’s all-time scoring list with 1,654 points. Last season he averaged 18.2 points and grabbed 5.2 rebounds a contest. Joining Houston in the backcourt are starters Dominick Reid and Donzell Williams along with sixth-man Rob Fields. Fields and Reid finished second and third to Houston in scoring, tossing in 15.9 and 11.5 points, respectively. Fields earned second team All-SAC honors last season and was also selected the region all-tournament team. Reid was the SAC Freshman of the Year in 2007-08 and has twice earned AllAntonio Houston SAC Tournament honors. Williams averaged Senior guard almost six points and four rebounds a game, while serving as the Tribe’s lock-down defender. New backcourt additions include guards Tomas Smogner and Cameron Lovelace. Smogner red-shirted last season and gives the Indians another outside shooter. Lovelace spent last season at NCAA I North Florida, where he started five games and averaged nearly four points. The will join Justin Huntley and Trey Shoemaker to give the Indians solid depth in the backcourt. Catawba lost most of its frontcourt performers from a year ago, the biggest loss coming in Cliff Burns, who averaged 10 points and five rebounds a game, while blocking 62 shots. Also lost is Isaac Rose, who stepped out to can 25 three-pointers, along with Finnur Magnusson and Matthew Sossamon, who added depth in the post. Donald Rutherford will be a key down low. He averaged nearly 10 points per game and led the team in rebounding at 6.2 a contest. The return of Stuart Thomson, who red-shirted last season while battling cancer, will help fill the void left by Rose. At 6-5, Thomson has the ability to step out on the perimeter. Several other newcomers will also be looked upon to contribute immediately up front. Lee Martin joins the team after a year at

Donald Rutherford

Hargrave Military following a standout prep career at North Surry High School, where he was a three-time all-conference pick. Kelvin Drakeford comes to Catawba after red-shirting at Barton last season, while true freshman Stephen Coles gives the Indians needed height at 6-8. The Indians will open play in the Highway 52 Shootout, one of three tournaments on the Tribe’s schedule. The Indians will face last season’s regional finalist USC Aiken, along with Pfeiffer, in the Salisbury Round Classic and will travel to Ft. Lauderdale for a Thanksgiving Tournament at Nova Southeastern. Other highlights include a match-up with Chowan on Dec. 5 at Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena and a Dec. 15 contest at NCAA I UNC Asheville.

LENOIR-RHYNE BEARS Players come and go, but the Bears remain good. That seems to be the mantra for LenoirRhyne, who has captured five of the past seven South Atlantic Conference Regular Season Championships. Last year, L-R (18-11 overall and 12-4 in league play) surprised many and made a great run down the stretch to capture the league title and earn a trip to the NCAA Division II Playoffs. This season, the Bears may have to once again dig deep into their reserves and rely on several highly-touted newcomers to remain atop the perch. L-R needs to replace three starters for 2009-10 and will have one of its bigger squads (17 players total including nine newcomers) to try find the right players to compete in the always-tough South Atlantic Conference under 24-year mentor John Lentz. The Bears have a nice starting point in the frontcourt with the return of junior forward/ center D.J. Blackmon (Albemarle, N.C.). Blackmon, one of the most athletic players in the league, averaged 13.8 points and a team-high 6.4 rebounds last year en route to All-SAC second-team honors. With two years left of eligibility, Blackmon still has plenty of room for improvement especially if he gets help from some of his teammates. Hoping to answer that call for the Bears are junior forwards J.P. Haumann (Fayetteville, N.C.) and Nathaniel Shaw (Fayetteville, N.C.). Both players have spent their first two years developing and learning

the Bears’ system and each is looking for a breakout season in 2009-10. Sophomore forward Jeff Thomas (Durham, N.C.), another promising young player, adds depth to Lenoir-Rhyne’s frontcourt. Freshmen forwards Matt Kunz (Kernersville, N.C.) and Will Carpenter (Greensboro, N.C.) are two of the top newcomers L-R will look at to solidify the front line. Lenoir-Rhyne’s backcourt is also one in transition with the loss of Josh Rudder and Elliott McDowell. Rudder, a fiveyear player, was one of the Bears’ top allaround competitors in recent memory while McDowell earned first-team all-league accolades last year. The Bears are asking senior guard Marcus Hodges (Wake Forest, N.C.) to pick up where he left off late last season and take on more of a leadership role for the young squad. Hodges, a preseason all-league pick this year, averaged 10.2 points per game while leading the SAC in three-point field goal percentage (.522) and shooting 81 percent from the free throw line. Senior guard Ryan Crawford (Stuarts Draft, Va.) looks to fill the void and end his career on a high note for the Bears. The athletic guard averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per outing last year but should see those numbers improve as he becomes more of a focal point. Junior guard Ja’Wan Davis (Fayetteville, N.C.) now has the opportunity to move into one of the starting spots this season and the Bears will need him to step up.

Marcus Hodges

Sophomore Jon Hathcock (Concord, N.C.) has a lot of potential and also looks to see his playing time increase. The Bears have several first-year players would could make a significant impact this season including freshmen guards Kameko Walls (Winston-Salem, N.C.), Zach Allen (Wilmington, N.C.) and Alex Watkins (Charlotte, N.C.).

MARS HILL LIONS Last season the team finished 17-11 overall and 7-9 in the South Atlantic Conference. The team was very successful in accomplishing the goals they wanted to at the beginning of the year. Every day they worked hard and had a sense of urgency to have a winning record. It was the team’s first winning season since the 1997-98 campaign. The team brought in 11 new players and returns upperclassmen leadership with seniors Danny Sanders, Stoney Polite and Jarred Pickering. They will set the tone for how the team will play. Stoney Polite joined the 1,000 point club last season for Mars Hill. Polite can play on and off the ball and will be the lead guard. Almir Krdzalic is another option at point guard. A solid defender, he is a great passer and thinks to score second. JaShawn Anderson is an oldschool type strong point guard that makes great decisions with the ball in his hand. Danny Sanders will play both shooting guard and forward. Last year, Sanders ranked second in the conference in steals (3.04 spg), fourth in made three-point field goals (2.25 per game), seventh in scoring (16.8 ppg), seventh in free-throw percentage (78.3%), eighth in offensive rebounds (2.29 per game), 11th in total rebounds (6.1 rpg) and 12th in defensive rebounds (3.86 per game). Austin Patton joins the squad after a great high school career and plays off the

ball very well. Britton Smith has been moved from forward to wing because of his athletic ability and his knack to get to the basket. Antonio Lyerly will join the basketball team after playing for the Mars Hill football team for four seasons. Cody King is a shooting specialist that can bury three pointers from all over the court. Julian Mack can play the wing and the small forward position. He has worked on his ball handling and shooting during the offseason. He can contribute in the press and on defense. Barry Rice will add depth to the wing in this year for the Lions. Jarred Pickering returns after appearing in all 28 games last season. He has developed moves on the low block and can shoot the ball from behind the arc. He has also gotten stronger this offseason. Dallas Johnson plays power forward and is crafty around the basket because of his low center of gravity and strength. After sitting out last season, Robin McElroy will contribute key minutes for the team and is very good around the basket. He has great hands and can score around the basket. McElroy’s shot blocking threat will make opponents alter their shot in the paint. Pete Kostic is an extremely strong power forward. He is a force in both positions on the block that can also shoot the long range shot. He enjoys the battle for position and possession of the ball in the paint. Dion Malachi is a long athlete that can block shots and can put

Danny Sanders

up big numbers on both ends of the floor. Coach Nash feels this year’s squad should be competitive in their nonconference schedule as well as during the SAC regular season. A key to being successful will be the Lion’s ability to gel as an offensive and defensive unit. Rebounding the ball on both ends as well as taking better shots have been areas of concentration during the preseason. Coach Nash’s focus is on getting better each day with this young Lion squad and through desire, hard work and execution obtain a competitive spirit. - Rick Baker

NEWBERRY COLLEGE The 2009-10 Newberry College men’s basketball team enters this season facing one of the largest challenges of the program’s history. After posting a 21-8 record, the best since 1981-82, coach Jeremy Luther resigned to take the head coaching position at Armstrong Atlantic State University. The holes in the lineup produced by the graduation of three starting players including all-SAC performer Clemente Martin, Matt Alexander and Vytautas Valiulis was compounded when three key players in Grant Domsic, Brett Goodwell and Jesse Wheeler decided to transfer to AASU and follow Luther. Then in May, the team experienced another tremendous loss when the school’s all-time leading shot blocker, Kendrick Johnson, passed away in a tragic drowning accident. Johnson was in the top 25 in Division II history in blocks and he was expected to be a key contributor in 2009-10. With the combination of graduation, attrition and Johnson’s untimely passing, the new coach would have a monumental task ahead of him. Enter Steve DeMeo. A former assistant at Central Florida after 10 years at Providence, DeMeo had established a reputation as a top recruiter at the Division I level. Now, he had to essentially assemble an entire college basketball team, starting in July. “It’s a tough enough job to take over any head coaching job, but taking over on July 1 with only two returning players and some redshirted player, I didn’t really know what I had in the program,” DeMeo said. “So it was a 24/7 focus on recruiting, but we all know

that by July and August, there aren’t a ton of guys left. But I think my staff and I did a very good job of finding players late who are pretty good players and pretty good students who will help build this program for the future.” The returning players include senior forward Stephane Bakinde, who averaged 11.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in the 200708 season. Also returning are sophomores Charles Ndoloum and Felder Leaphart who both saw time off the bench last season. “Stephane has risen to the top of our group since we’ve started practice,” DeMeo said. “He definitely understands how to play the game and his work ethic has been phenomenal. Charles and Felder have also shown great work ethic as we get ready for the season.” Players who previously redshirted at Newberry and will see playing time this season include Ryan Barnes, Aaron Edwards and Coleman Young. “Ryan is by far our best shooter. He strokes the ball really well and has a good understanding of the game and a great work ethic. Aaron’s versatility will be key for us. He’s a tough, gritty kid who comes to work hard every day. Coleman has proven he really knows how to play the game. He’s a good shooter and has a good feel for the game,” DeMeo said of the trio. From there, every player is new to the Newberry College basketball program. At the guard positions, freshmen Jawuan Lockhart and Devante Cutler are expected to play, as well as Jeremee Davis, Danny Huffor and Perry Nelson. “Jawuan is a guy who really knows how to play the game and Devante Cutler’s level has risen a lot since he’s gotten here and I expect

Stephane Bakinde

them to make significant contributions this season. Perry Nelson is an undersized guy, but he scores well and plays with a lot of passion.” Joining Bakinde in the front court are transfers Ray Robinson and Rodney Lee, freshman Darryl Woods and former Newberry football player Carlnel Williams. “Rodney Lee’s athleticism is off the chart and once he slows himself down he’ll be a good contributor. Ray Robinson really shoots the ball well, he’s very athletic and he runs the floor like a deer. Carlnel is a very tough player, and his strength is his defense. Between Ray, Rod and Carlnel, those guys run the floor better than anyone I think I’ve ever coached. With those three and Stephane, I think we have a pretty good foursome of interior guys,” DeMeo said.

TUSCULUM PIONEERS With the return of four starters from last year’s 20-win campaign, the Tusculum College men’s basketball program will be in quest of a South Atlantic Conference Championship and a return to the NCAA postseason. The Pioneers are coming off their best season as a NCAA Division II member. Tusculum posted an impressive 20-11 record, while establishing a school-best for most victories at the DII level and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in school history, but its first at-large bid. South Atlantic Conference Player of the Year Kyle Moore is back for his senior season after a remarkable season where he achieved numerous firsts for the program. He became the first player in school history to garner SAC Player of the Year honors, while also becoming the first TC standout to earn AllKyle Moore America recognition at the Senior guard DII level. The Pioneers are led by veteran coach Jim Boone, who will be entering his 24th season as a head coach, at the NCAA Division I or II levels. Boone has led two teams to the Division II Final Four and seven to the NCAA Tournament in his storied career. Coach Boone has nearly recorded 400 career victories (381), including a .708 winning percentage and an average of over 20 wins per year at the Division II level. Tusculum also returns six of its top eight players from last year’s club that advanced to the championship game of the South Atlantic Conference Tournament. Moore leads the returning cast as he

averaged 21.1 points per game last season. The two-time All-SAC performer was the epitome of consistency last year, scoring 18 or more points on 25 occasions, 25 or more 10 times, and over 29 markers on five occasions - while leading the SAC in points per game and three point field goals made per game (3.26). He established a pair of SAC single-season marks with 101 three-point field goals made and 203 free throws made (also a TC season record). Tusculum also returns its blue collar, doit-all center, in senior forward Josh Bennett. The 6-7, 240-pound post player was named to the SAC All-Tournament Team last year, averaging 12.6 over the Pioneers’ last five games, and leading TC in rebounding (7.2 rpg) and field goal percentage (.520). Bennett, finished the season among the league’s leaders in scoring (10.1 ppg/23rd in SAC), rebounding (7.2 rpg/3rd in SAC), and field goal percentage (.520/12th in SAC). Junior forward Rob Troutman returns to the starting line-up for the Pioneers. The 2008 SAC All-Freshman Team honoree averaged 9.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per game, while logging 33.19 minutes per contest, which was the third-best average in the conference. Wes Taylor, a 6-6 senior forward, is back after playing the second half of the season a year ago. After missing the first two months of the 2008-09 campaign with an injury, he appeared in the line-up and sparked the Pioneers to a 12-5 record that included a strong postseason charge. During that stretch, Taylor averaged nearly four points and three rebounds per contest . The Pioneers also return senior guard Jimmy Boone and sophomore center Tommy Klempin, as both played integral roles to Tusculum’s success. Boone, the son of the

Kyle Moore

TC head coach, was named the SAC Player of the Week last season, after averaging 16.7 points per game and shooting 67 percent from three-point territory (12-18). Boone followed his Player of the Week honors with a career high 24 points at Mt. Olive College in a 64-51 win. For the season, Boone posted 6.1 points per game and shot 83 percent from the free throw line, while playing in 30 of the teams 31 games. Klempin, a 6-10 center, started 16 games as a defensive specialist, grabbing a career highs in rebounds (5) vs. nationallyranked and NCAA Tournament participant Catawba. In 2008-09, Tusculum led the South Atlantic Conference in several statistical categories, including scoring defense (63.8 ppg), free throw percentage (.759 - school record), three-point field goal percentage (.397), and assist to turnover ratio (1.08). - Dom Donnelly

WINGATE BULLDOGS The Wingate University men’s basketball team will have a role reversal of sorts from head coach Brian Good’s first season a year ago. During the 2008-09 campaign, Good took over a team with a solid core of returners. His veterans included four seniors with a combined 80 starts entering the season. In the upcoming season, the Bulldogs will have only four returners that have started a game under Good. Wingate’s second-year mentor also welcomes ten newcomers for the 2009-10 season. Wingate finished the 2008-09 year with 12-16 overall record and an 8-8 finish in the South Atlantic Conference, a league Jaime Vaughn that sent 33 percent of its Sophomore guard members to the 2009 NCAA tournament. The schedule also featured nine other NCAA teams. Coach Good knows the Bulldogs will rely on youth and talent due to the lack of experience on the court. “I can say without a doubt that I have never been through a preseason like this...with 10 new players,” Good acknowledges. “The youth and enthusiasm has made this fall very fun. They have been eager to learn and have worked extremely hard. We are doing our best to come together as a team. We have spent several hours together off the court in hopes that this will expedite the team building process.” The Bulldogs return two seniors in swingmen David Johnson and Larry Staley. Johnson led the ‘Dogs from beyond the arc and the free throw line last season. Staley scored in double figures twice last season,

posting those totals in back-to-back wins against Tusculum and Brevard. Sophomore guards Chase Smith and Jaime Vaughn will lead the Bulldogs in the backcourt. The duo combined for 88 threepointers and each had exactly 100 attempts. Smith scored in double figures five times, with a season-high at home against Lander. Vaughn struck for double-digit points 11 times with his season-high at Tusculum, when he poured in 20 points. Wingate will welcome in nine true freshmen and one sophomore transfer. All nine of the rookies for Wingate hail from North Carolina, Florida or Georgia. The sophomore transfer (Tracy Parks) is a Floridian who joins the Bulldogs from South Alabama, where he played one year for the NCAA Division I Jaguars. Good admits the recruiting process was a furious one, as the Bulldogs need production right away. “We recruited guys that we felt would contend for starting positions,” Good says. “At some positions, we recruited two or more for those positions. I doubt that there will be any minutes played when there are not freshmen on the floor for us this season.” The three previous years prior to the Brian Good era, Wingate won 37 of 43 home games in Cuddy Arena. The first year under Good was no different as Wingate had a 10-2 record on its home floor. The road was not friendly for Wingate as they finished 2-13 with both road wins coming in the SAC. The road woes are something Coach Good and his staff discuss on a regular basis. “We ask for feedback from our players as well,” Good notes. “Is it pre-game meals… the gym arrival time…the route? We consider

David Johnson

everything and look for any detail that may help our team be more prepared,” Good adds. “Truth be told, it’s tough to win on the road in this league…very few (teams) lose at home. “For us to win on the road, not only do we have to be talented and prepared, but mentally tough,” Good says. “I felt that this is what got LRU the championship last season. They had veteran guys that were mentally tough.” Wingate will field yet another tough non-conference slate with four of the first six games on the road, including a trip to visit Coach Good’s former team, Queens University of Charlotte. - David Sherwood

BREVARD TORNADOS The Tornados enter the 2009-2010 season stronger and more experienced as Head Coach Shannon Reid returns eleven players and all five starters from last year’s team that went 6-21 and 0-16 in the SAC in their first season as full NCAA Division II members. Coach Reid in her second season at Brevard, brings in her first recruiting class as this year’s team will boast the veteran leadership of nine returners from last year’s squad, led by the two 2009-2010 seniors, Samantha Winn and Millie Wharton. Winn, a 5-10 forward, started in all 27 games for the Tornados last year and led the 2008-2009 Tornados in scoring averaging 16.4 points per game. Winn also led the team in rebounding averaging 7.8 per game while recording seven double-doubles on the season. Wharton, a 5-9 guard/forward, also played in all 27 games last year, starting 23 times. Amanda Whitaker, a 5-10 junior forward, finished third on the team with 10.1 points per game and was sixth in the SAC in rebounds per game with 7.2, while also protecting the paint in finishing fifth in the SAC in blocks at 1.22 per game. Amber Roberts, a 5-8 junior guard, is a constant threat from beyond the arc, having led the team with a 39.8 percent three-point field goal percentage in averaging 6.6 points per game as shooting guard. The team’s third returning junior, Micah LaJoie, played admirably last season in coming off the bench and will look to contribute more this season, with 19 games’ experience under her belt after transferring to Brevard from McPherson College. In addition, four of last year’s five freshmen return as seasoned sophomores in Paige Bridgers, Holli Flippo, Anna

Schlobohm, and Lindsay Brendle. Schlobohm finished second on the team in scoring, averaging 10.1 points per game while leading the team in assists. She was also consistent on the charity stripe, she finished eighth in the SAC in free throws, connecting on 62 of 77 for an 80.5 percent free-throw percentage and will be looked to score even more this season, playing at the two guard instead of running point like last season. Flippo, a 5-6 guard, has shown she can shoot the three, sinking 49 from beyond the arc last year in averaging 9.2 points per game. She finished fifth in the SAC in steals per game with 2.0. Brendle, a combo guard/forward, will be expected to play more minutes this season in the sixth man role. The final sophomore from last year, Bridgers, a 5-8 guard, played quality minutes off the bench for the Tornados this past season and will be looked on to provide hustle when she is on the floor. Brittany Boyce joins the Tornados this season from Gardner-Webb, and will look to provide an immediate impact at both ends of the court, taking over the point guard position for Coach Reid. As a freshman, Boyce played in all 31 games as a Runnin’ Bulldog, tying a school record with seven steals in her first collegiate game. Brianna Worley redshirted last season after transferring in from UNC Asheville. The 6-0 forward checks in as the tallest Tornado and is a fundamentally sound player who has a good perimeter game and can score with her back to the basket as well. Coach Reid welcomes six new freshmen to this year’s squad. Tempestt Mack, a 5-10 guard/forward from Albarmarle, N.C. will see significant

Samantha Winn playing time, adding to the team’s strong perimeter play as well as bring more depth at the post. Another key freshman will be Asheley Watkins. Watkins, a strong and athletic 5-7 guard from Bostic, N.C., will challenge returners for their spots on the floor with her ability to create off the dribble and tough on ball defense. Alyssa Cutshaw (Thomasville, N.C.) and Katelynne Poole (Salisbury, N.C.), will spread the defense out with their ability to shoot the three, while Hayley Fisher (Rosman, N.C.) a 5-7 guard will bring tough defensive skills and a solid midrange game to the team. Freshman Alexis Atkins (Badin, N.C.) will be the lone redshirt this season.

CARSON-NEWMAN EAGLES The Carson-Newman College Women’s Basketball Team advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament for the third time in five years last season. The Lady Eagles posted a 19-11 overall record (9-7 SAC), and are poised for a successful campaign in the ever challenging South Atlantic Conference and Southeast Region this year. Last year, C-N finished second in the nation in field goal percentage (47.3 %) and was third in scoring average (83.7 ppg), topping 90 points 18 times. The Lady Eagles set school records in scoring average, three-point field goals made (168) and free throw percentage (71.3 %), tying for fourth in the league. Under the watchful eye Shari Buford of ninth-year head coach Senior forward Dean Walsh, who is fifth on the SAC all-time win list with 134 victories, the Lady Eagles return four starters and welcome a class of newcomers that should contribute to the team immediately. Led by two-time All-SAC honoree Shari Buford, the Carson-Newman frontcourt will feature speed and athleticism that will go along with the Lady Eagles’ plan to take its up-tempo playing style to the next level. Buford was first in the nation in field goal percentage as a junior last year, making 61.1 percent of her shots from the floor, a C-N record. Joining Buford is Zoriah Williams, who was named to the SAC All-Freshman team last year.

Carson-Newman welcomes three freshmen at the forward spot this season who will be looked upon to play immediately in the Lady Eagles’ offensive system. Dominique Jackson led her Nova High School team to a combined record of 106-18 over her four-year career. She averaged 10 points per game, shooting 65 percent from the field as a senior. Courdne Miles led Graham High School to three straight NCHSAA West Regional Titles averaging 13 points, nine rebounds and three blocks per game during her senior season. Tasha Phillips was a three-time AllTSSAA player, leading Clarkrange High School to two state championship appearances and one state title. Second-team all-league performer Ashley Kyle and Mandy Mendenhall are the key returners for the Lady Eagles this season as two combined to average 21.6 points and 7.6 assists per game. Kyle ranked third in the league in assists per game (4.8) and steals (2.1) as a junior last season. Amber Blackwell, Lundyn Howard, Megan Hunter, Emma Sorrells and Liz Stringer will all add depth to the Carson-Newman backcourt with their experience in the system and with the college-level style of play. C-N welcomes Katlin Moore from former SAC institution Presbyterian College where the junior played for the past two seasons and was considered one of the best guards in the Big South. Moore averaged 11.0 points per game and reached double figures 32 times in two seasons with the Blue Hose.

Junior college transfer Cassie Bates comes to the Lady Eagles after a successful freshman season at Ohlone College where she led the Renegades to a perfect 12-0 conference record. Candis Clear was ranked a top-10 player in Memphis area high schools last season and was a two-time All-Tennessee honoree. She has the potential to be one of the top newcomers in the league this season.

LENOIR-RHYNE BEARS The up-and-coming Lenoir-Rhyne University women’s basketball team finally served notice last year with its recordbreaking campaign. In 2008-09, the Bears rolled to the South Atlantic Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships in addition to hosting the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Tournament as the top seed. It’s hard to improve on a 27-5 record (133 in league play) but Lenoir-Rhyne has the pieces to do so. Lenoir-Rhyne has an usual amount of talent and experience returning including all five starters and their top 10 scorers from a season ago. The Bears, ranked No. Amber Holt 22 in NCAA Division II Senior guard Bulletin National Preseason Top 25 Poll, are primed for another run under fifth-year mentor Todd Starkey. For his team’s accomplishments, Starkey was named the 2008-09 RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA NCAA Division II National Coach Of The Year. One of the big reasons for last year’s success was the return of Denise Moore. The senior center sat out the 2007-08 campaign with a knee injury but bounced back to earn All-SAC Second-Team honors for the second time in her career after averaging a teamhigh 13.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Moore was also named the Food Lion SAC Tournament MVP in 2009 and will once again give L-R an edge inside. Seniors Jacquelyn Kremer and Kristen

Fulmer are strong compliments to Moore on the inside. The Bears are also excited about the arrival of freshman forwards Precious Elkins and Gina Simmons. Speaking of guards, Lenoir-Rhyne’s stable can match up with anyone. Senior guard Amber Holt, a three-time All-SAC First-Team honoree, looks to finish her L-R career in fine fashion. One of the league’s most prolific scorers, Holt finished second in points last year (12.8 ppg) while leading the squad in three-pointers made (42) and assists (125). The arrival of senior guard Brittany Mitch just before the break last year may have been the final piece of the puzzle. Mitch, a tall, athletic guard (6-2) who has already graduated from Duke, averaged 11.2 points per outing last season on her way to second-team allleague accolades. Mitch gives L-R a scoring threat from behind the three-point line. Despite the array of talent already mentioned, the ball still goes through senior guard Jami Safrit. Safrit, one of the league’s and region’s best all-around players, shows her versatility with the numbers she posts. Safrit averaged 9.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game despite standing only 5-4. Safrit also dished out four assists per game and shot 82 percent from the free throw line. Her presence on the court is immeasurable. Junior guard LaCourtney Rann provides immediate scoring while freshman guard Cameron Sealey is the perfect complement to Safrit. Sealey had a strong first year with L-R in 2008-09, averaging 8.1 points per contest while starting in 31 of 32 games.

Denise Moore

L-R’s depth in the backcourt goes even further with sophomore guard Whitley Culler and senior guard Meredith Webster. Culler (5.9 ppg) was one of the top newcomers last year and played extremely well down the stretch while Webster is one of L-R’s best three-point shooters. Senior guard Leslie Conetta gives L-R another option with her experience. Freshman guard Taylor Ricketts should figure in the mix as well. - John Karrs

LINCOLN MEMORIAL RAILSPLITTERS After finishing 11-17 last season (5-11 in South Atlantic Conference play), Lincoln Memorial University head coach Stephanie Smith is looking to take the next step forward in her second season and move the Lady Railsplitters into the top echelon of the conference. With only four players returning, depth and experience were the key issues that Smith had to address while on the recruiting trail this summer. Once those needs are filled, Smith will then fully implement her trademarked style of hard-nosed defense and up-tempo play. The experience of the returning players should help ease the transition somewhat. Leading the returnees is sophomore Dayshalee Salaman point guard Dayshalee Sophomore guard Salaman (Carolina, Puerto Rico). Salaman, a member of the 2009 SAC All-Freshman team, led the squad in scoring and in assists. Senior Cena Nasiloski (Hammond, IN) controlled the boards for LMU in rebounding last season and will be counted on to anchor the defense this year. Junior Brittany Craney (Petersburg, IN) and sophomore Amberly O’Dell (Argos, IN) were usually the first two players to come off the bench last year. Two of the newcomers have played together for many years as Oklahoma City natives Whitney Holmes and LaChelle Hyatt were teammates in both high school and junior college. Holmes is a two-time NJCAA first-team All-American who averaged 21.5

points and 9 rebounds a game while Hyatt averaged 8.5 points and 8.5 rebounds a game over the last two seasons. Another pair of juco teammates are featured on the roster. Carolyn Mills (Nashville, TN) and Blandine Kikwiki Mamuku (Congo, Africa) helped lead Chipola College to a third place finish in the NJCAA national tournament. Mills averaged 7 points and 3.5 rebounds a game at CC while Kikwiki Mamuku averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds a game. Sophomore guard Destiny Williams (Upper Marlboro, MD) was a first-team allconference performer at St. Petersburg College last season. She averaged 15.2 points, 6.1 assists and 2.3 steals a game and was named the team’s Offensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player. Mariah Richardson (Lawrenceville, GA) is the lone freshman on the squad. The 5’9” guard/forward averaged 17 points a game last season and helped lead her team to the Georgia Sweet 16. This year’s schedule will be one of the toughest since LMU joined the NCAA as, in addition to the grueling South Atlantic Conference schedule, six of the ten nonconference teams will be against regional competition. Ten of the seventeen teams

Cena Nasiloski

on the schedule have played in the NCAA Tournament over the last three seasons and three of those have been conference champions over that same period. - Bill Porter

MARS HILL LIONS The Mars Hill women’s basketball team ended the 2008-09 season 12-16 overall and 5-11 in the South Atlantic Conference. Injuries plagued the team last year, especially to senior starters throughout the season. This forced several players to play out of position and young players to step up and be counted on early in their collegiate careers. The Lions enter 2009 with a lot of youth The Lions were picked eighth in preseason SAC voting. This ranking will definitely help motivate the upper classmen and the newcomers to the program. The incoming freshmen are very aggressive and talented and will push the upperclassmen for playing time. Brittini Young, the South Atlantic Conference’s leading scorer (16.6 ppg) and a member of the All-Conference second team last season, returns to lead the backcourt for a third straight season. In addition to leading the SAC in scoring, Young was first in the conference in free throw percentage (86.5%), fourth in minutes played (33.21 mpg), sixth in made three-point field goals (2.39 per game), eighth in assists (3.68 per game), 10th in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.04) and 15th in steals (1.50 per game). Newcomer Beth Miller will enter the season as another option at point guard. A solid defender, her high school team played in three consecutive state championship games, so success does not come new to her. She is an explosive player with great court vision who fits in great to the system. Expect Narcissa Grayson to also see some time at the point. Bria Smith returns for her third year and is a solid three-point shooter. She ended last season ranked 10th in the SAC in three-point field goal percentage (37.5%) and 15th in the

league in made three-point field goals (1.29 per game). Krystal Moore, a freshman, will help spread the defense because of her great three-point shooting ability. Cassie Yeargan, another freshman guard, can shoot the ball from behind the arc, play in the post and is a great offensive rebounder. Finally, Sky Assif is a scrappy player who can knock down the outside shot or take it to the rim. Moore, Yeargan, and Assif will provide valuable minutes for the Lions this season. Grayson will also see some time at the wing spot. She is a great athlete who has explosive speed. At forward, Margaret Harvey, a transfer from Old Dominion, is very athletic and has great range. She will be counted on in the post due to a season ending injury suffered by Jocelyn Williams. She has played the wing spot her entire life so it’s a transition for her move to the post, but within the Lions system she will have the ability to excel. Erica Warren has been moved from guard to forward in order to maximize her great first step and athletic ability. Alexis Poplos will add depth in the paint for the Lions. At center, Taylor Deal had a solid 2008 campaign as a freshman. A workhorse, she has gotten stronger and added post moves during this offseason. She has also expanded her game while facing the basket. Katie Buckner, the team’s tallest player, is a solid passer and plays well with her back to the basket. She will be counted on to add depth in the post. In order for Mars Hill to reach its goals, the Lions must improve defensively, especially in defensive transition. The team surrendered 72.1 points per game in 2008 and was eighth in the league in steals (7.21 per game). Blocking

Brittini Young

shots will also be imperative because Mars Hill ranked last in the conference (1.64 per game) in that statistic. Rebounding will also be a key. The South Atlantic Conference is an extremely competitive conference and in order to compete the Lions will have to play harder, be more physical and be mentally tougher than they have in the past. Expect the Lions to play faster with more skilled ball handlers and better outside shooters on this year’s team. This year’s squad possesses a great deal of speed so they will put more pressure on opposing defenses, especially utilizing full court pressure.

NEWBERRY COLLEGE The Newberry College women’s basketball team will have to work fill the void left behind by last year’s starters Monica Alexander and Laura Marquardt. Both players amassed numerous honors and awards during their careers at Newberry. The team will also miss the contributions from Sade Coates and Mashanda Thomas off the bench. Head coach Sean Page is confident that he has the right players to fill the holes. “We still have three starters coming back and are going to remain competitive within the South Atlantic Conference,” Page said. “We brought in some highly talented players that are going to compete for the returners’ playing time immediately.” Before the official season gets underway, Newberry will travel to Asheville, N.C. on Saturday, November 14, to face UNC Asheville for a preseason exhibition game. Though it is just an exhibition for Newberry, the game serves as UNC Asheville’s regular season opener. “This is far from a meaningless scrimmage,” Page stated. “It’s going to be played like a real game and it gives us an opportunity to measure ourselves against a Division I opponent.” The regular season tips off with an away contest against North Greenville on Tuesday, November 17. The scarlet and gray haven’t seen the Crusaders since beating them by a score of 81-52 in 2004. Next Newberry will be challenged by two unfamiliar foes in the North Georgia

Classic in Dahlonega, Ga. Newberry will face off against North Georgia on Friday, November 20, and Montevallo on Saturday, November 21, as part of the tournament play. Newberry has never played either of these teams. Following its tournament play, Newberry will host three consecutive games against Peach Belt Conference and NAIA opponents. The scarlet and gray host Armstrong Atlantic State on Wednesday, November 25, Morris College on Saturday, November 28, and Voorhees College on Tuesday, December 1. After completing the home stretch, Newberry will travel to Wingate, N.C. to open South Atlantic Conference play against the Wingate Bulldogs on Friday, December 4. Following the conference opener, Newberry will break from conference play and challenge Lander on the road on Saturday, December 12. Lander won the Peach Belt Conference Tournament last season and advanced into the regional tournament. The team then faces off with a pair of Conference Carolinas opponents with Pfeiffer on Tuesday, Tuesday, December 15, and the 2008-09 Conference Carolinas champion Anderson on Saturday, December 19. The Anderson game will mark the birth of a rivalry as Anderson is slated to join the SAC for the 2010-11 season. Newberry closes out non-conference

Helen McKinney

play on Monday, December 28, against Division I Davidson. “Davidson will really challenge our team and dictate how we prepare for the rest of our conference schedule,” Page said. “We have a wealth of talent and experience,” Page said, “but the important issue is how we come together as a team. It’s going to come down to how hard we can work; as players and as coaches.”

TUSCULUM PIONEERS This season brings a new era of leadership and a fresh defense-first mentality under new head coach Adell Harris, who takes the reins of the back-to-back South Atlantic Conference champions in her first year on the Greeneville, Tenn. campus. Coach Harris inherits a program which has compiled a 51-11 record over the last two seasons and made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament. Coach Harris brings a philosophy of hard work and eternal optimism with her from UNC Asheville, and will challenge her Pioneer squad to improve every day and earn the right to be a champion. The Pioneer backcourt features one of the nation’s most gifted players, as well as one of its most dynamic student-athletes in junior guard Jasmine Gunn. The 4-11 floor general led the Pioneers to their second consecutive NCAA tournament berth last season, averaging 15.5 points and nearly six assists per game en route to a spot on the WBCA/State Farm Coaches’ All-America Honorable Mention Team, becoming the second Pioneer in as many seasons to be so recognized. Gunn is already one of the most accomplished point guards in program history after just two seasons, ranking fourth on the all-time assists list with 370 helpers. The Women’s Division II Bulletin Preseason All-American is also the program’s all-time leader in assists per game, averaging an even six helpers per contest in 62 career games. Jasmine Parker returns for her junior season to lead the attack of the wing for the Pioneers, having averaged nearly nine points and over three rebounds in 30 games last year. The 5-7 guard provides a change of pace at the point off the bench, finishing last season second on the team with 118 assists. Parker

brings plenty of experience to the Pioneer lineup, and will be expected to step into a much more significant role this season. Brittni Oliver is back for her junior campaign to continue the Oliver family tradition at Tusculum following the graduation of her sister Ashli, the program’s all-time leader in three-point field goals and the owner of the second-highest three-pointer total in NCAA Division II history. The 5-5 guard saw limited action in 27 games for the Pioneers last season, averaging just under two points and one rebound in under nine minutes per contest. Sophomores Brenica Shephard and Shasidy Ludgood round out the returning wing players for the Pioneers. Kat Spears returns to lead Tusculum as the team’s lone senior after posting 9.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season, which ranked fifth and second on the Pioneers, respectively. The 5-11 forward brings great length and athleticism to the defensive end of the floor, having blocked 46 shots last season to move into fourth on the program’s all-time list with 95 career rejections. Catherine Hintz, a junior, is expected to be a force in the paint this season, standing an impressive six feet, eight inches tall. Hintz played in 32 contests last season, averaging three points and nearly three rebounds in less than six minutes per game. Sophomore Staci Hicks returns for her second season with the Pioneers. Tusculum welcomes a talented and accomplished recruiting class into the fold this season, as the new Pioneers will be expected to step in and contribute right away. Freshman Kendal Baxter is known primarily for her three-point shot, and will be expected to take on a significant role on the offensive end of the floor for the Pioneers this season.

Jasmine Gunn

Kate Lowe, from Helenwood, Tenn., is a hard working perimeter player who excels on both ends of the floor. Gabrielle Harvey joins the Pioneers from Berkmar HS in Lawrenceville, Ga. where she holds school records in both single-season and career steals. Chelsea McGowen, is a 6-2 center who starred at Croatan HS in Newport, N.C. where she holds school records for most career points and rebounds. Ellen Holton comes from Elgin HS in Elgin, Ill. where she was a three-year letter-winner in basketball and track and field. Fayola Moise joins the Pioneers from Mamaroneck HS in Mamaroneck, N.Y. where she was a two-year letter-winner and an AllSection selection in 2008. - Whitney Noble

WINGATE BULLDOGS Wingate University head women’s basketball coach Barbara Nelson says she would be hard-pressed to write a pre-season (starting) line-up card. Nelson believes this is not a problem, as the Bulldogs will possess much depth this year. “We have eight players who could fill starting roles right now,” Nelson says. “We have three or four (more) players who are only seven-to-10 practices away from filling a starting role. At this point, I am not looking for five starters. I am looking for my finishing five.” Wingate was 18-10 overall last year. The Bulldogs compiled a 9-7 ledger in the South Atlantic Conference. The previous year, Wingate advanced to the 2008 NCAA Division II Elite Eight as champions of the South Atlantic Region. The Bulldogs also won the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference tournament on the way to the 2008 Elite Eight event. The Bulldogs will miss All-American point guard Anna Atkinson, the two-time South Atlantic Conference Player of the Year. “This year’s team has so much potential,” Nelson acknowledges. “…but potential is a dangerous and scary word. We are very athletic. We have many interchangeable pieces. We have players who can defend and players who can finish at the rim.” Sophomore guard Kurie Washington was the 2009 SAC Freshman of the Year for women’s basketball. She was named All-SAC second team as well. Last year, Washington led first-year SAC players in scoring with 15.4 points per game. In SAC games, she averaged a league-best 18.8 points per game. In Wingate’s final 10 contests of the season, Washington posted 21.3 points per game.

The WBCA honored Washington as an honorable mention choice for WBCA Player of the Month laurels in February. She averaged 21-plus points during February. Her 30-point game in a 99-90 victory at CarsonNewman Feb. 28 was the most points by a Wingate player (male or female) last season. Bulldog junior guard CC Brooks averaged 9.2 points per game last year. Brooks had 18 starts last year, third on the team to Atkinson and Washington. Senior backcourt mate Sarah Rosser hit 24 three-pointers during her junior campaign, fourth on the team charts. Rosser’s return to the shooting guard slot will keep opposing defenses honest. Nine of Wingate’s 10 returning players started at least two games last season, giving the Bulldogs much experience. Sophomore guards Stephanie Whitenack and Gladney Brown give Wingate a veteran backcourt. Whitenack hit 14 three-point field goals last year, while Brown can play either guard position with much ease. Junior guard Emily Parrish is not afraid to step behind the threepoint line and make things happen. Wingate’s frontcourt returns virtually intact; three veterans shared 40 starts during the 2008-09 season. ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America® candidate Stacie Rhodes averaged 6.4 points per game and grabbed a team-best 5.6 rebounds per contest as a junior last year. Junior forward Stefani Shuey posted 6.0 points per game and 4.1 rebounds per game as a sophomore. During her first season, Shuey averaged 10.6 post-season points per game during Wingate’s magical run to the Elite Eight. Junior forward Jessy Keitt will often

Kurie Washington

draw the opposing teams’ top post player. Senior Erica Crumlin led the SAC with 2.65 blocks per game two seasons ago. Crumlin contributed 8.2 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game during Wingate’s Elite Eight season. Her return will reap big dividends for the Bulldogs this year. Wingate’s freshman class will have an opportunity to contribute immediately. Nelson added guards Sarah Wollett and Britney Mitchell and post players Jecia Anderson and Louticia Logan to the Bulldog mix for the 2009-10 campaign. Mitchell played her high school basketball at nearby Porter Ridge.

After a missed shot by the Pioneers, who were seeded third, Cliff Burns grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 0.2 seconds left. He added a free throw for the final margin. Tusculum overcame an eight-point deficit in the final eight minutes and twice took one-point leads in the final minute. Kyle Moore gave the Pioneers a 58-57 edge on a three-pointer with 49 seconds. Catawba went back on top when tournament MVP Antonio Houston grabbed an offense rebound and converted a threepoint play with 33 seconds to go, giving Catawba a 60-58 edge. Wes Taylor again gave the Pioneers a lead on a three-point play with 16 seconds remaining. That set up Reid, who sank the winning free throws. Catawba led by six out of the gates at 10-4, but Tusculum would lead much of the half, taking a 24-17 edge with just over two minutes left in the opening stanza. The Pioneers led 26-23 at the half. Catawba surged ahead early in the second half, using an 8-0 run to go ahead 33-30 with 16:20 left. The Indians held the lead until a layup by Moore with 3:31 to go set up the back-and-forth finish.

The Catawba College men’s basketball team won the 2009 Food Lion SAC Tournament for the second year in a row with a 63-61 win over Tusculum College.

Houston led Catawba with 16 points with Rob Fields coming off the bench to add 14. Burns posted a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds. Moore led all scorers with 18 points for the Pioneers. Josh Bennett added 11 points. Neither team shot well. Catawba made just 36.5% with Tusculum hitting on 37%. Catawba held a 40-31 edge on the boards. Tusculum made five turnovers, half as many miscues as the Indians. Reid joined Houston on the all-tournament team for Catawba. Moore and Bennett represented Tusculum on the team. Newberry’s Clemente Martin rounded out the squad. “This was a tough game and a tremendous battle between two teams determined to find a way to win. I could not be more proud of my team for how hard they played. It was a heck of a game. I wish it would have ended up differently in the last 50 seconds, but it is a good life lesson. Sometimes life is not fair,” said Tusculum coach Jim Boone. “This was our third demanding game of the week. Catawba did a good job of defending us on the arc.” Catawba head coach Jim Baker said, “I’m proud of the way our guys hung in there. I thought our defensive effort was very good. Tusculum is hard to play with

all their screens. “Last year we had that big lead and blew it. We just had to step it up and get it done. Even when we were down today, I had a calm feeling. Our kids have been here before and we came up with a big play. They did not panic. Last year, against Mars Hill, they panicked a little bit.” CATAWBA 63, TUSCULUM 61 CATAWBA (21-9) Houston, Antonio 5-11 4-5 16; Fields, Rob 4-9 5-5 14; Burns, Cliff 4-8 4-8 12; Reid, Dominick 2-11 6-6 10; Rutherford, Donald 3-7 2-2 8; Rose, Isaac 1-5 0-0 3; Tamer, Matt 0-0 0-0 0; Shoemaker, Trey 0-0 0-0 0; Magnusson, Finnur 0-1 0-0 0; Williams, Donzell 0-0 0-0 0.

2009 TOURNAMENT REVIEW LENOIR-RHYNE 66, TUSCULUM 57

Bears take down Pioneers HICKORY, N.C. – Lenoir-Rhyne University defeated Tusculum College, 66-57, to win the 2009 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament Sunday afternoon at the Catawba Valley Community College Multipurpose Complex in Hickory, N.C. Bear junior Denise Moore (Newport News, Va.) led the way with 16 points and 16 rebounds, both team-highs, as LenoirRhyne (26-4) won its second league tournament title in school history. L-R also won the championship in 2003. Moore was named tournament most valuable player. Tusculum, which fell to 25-5 on the year, was paced by junior Kat Spears’ (Memphis, Tenn.) 14 points and 14 rebounds but the Pioneers shot just 26 percent (18-of-70) from the field in the losing effort. Sophomore Jasmine Gunn (Nashville, Tenn.) led the Pioneers with 17 points but made just five-of-23 field goal attempts. Lenoir-Rhyne, ranked No. 23 in NCAA Division II, and Tusculum will now await their bids to the playoffs. The Bears are ranked first in the Southeast Regional Poll while the Pioneers are fourth. Tusculum, ranked 13th in the nation, took a 28-27 lead into the break but Lenoir-Rhyne opened the second half with a 16-8 run six minutes in culminated by a three-pointer from junior Amber Holt (Charlotte, N.C.) and the Bears would never relinquished the lead the rest of the way. Holt would finish with a game-high 19 points and would be named to the alltournament team as well. The Pioneers would cut to margin to two points twice (52-50 and 54-52) with under three minutes left but the Bears’ free throw shooting proved to be the differ-

ence. Lenoir-Rhyne would finish 24-of-33 (73 percent) from the charity stripe and set the SAC record for most free throws in a championship game. Freshman Whitley Culler (Mount Airy, N.C.) added a double-double for LenoirRhyne with 11 points and 11 rebounds as the Bears held a 53-38 advantage on the boards. Stephany Neptune (Wallkill, N.Y.) chipped in with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Pioneers, who lost in the title game for the second straight year. Joining Moore, Holt and Gunn on the all-tournament squad was Newberry’s Helen McKinney (Owensboro, N.Y.) and Tusculum’s Nikki Van Dine (Columbus, Ohio). “We held the 13th-ranked team in the nation to 25 percent shooting in the game,” said Lenoir-Rhyne Head Coach Todd Starkey. “That has to be one of our best defensive performances this year. I thought we did a good job of fighting on each possession. We made them shoot contested shots. “We had a loss at Wingate (February 25), that snapped us back to attention. We are not untouchable. If we are not focused, we could lose to anybody. It’s March. It’s

one and done. I think we are up to the challenge.” “It’s disappointing. We really focused on defense today and I thought we were doing a really good job,” said Tusculum Head Coach Missy Tiber. “I never would have imagined we would come in here a shot 25 percent. You can’t win a championship shooting 25 percent. We believe the NCAA Tournament could be something bigger. We are three wins away from an Elite Eight.” LENOIR-RHYNE 66, TUSCULUM 57 LENOIR-RHYNE Holt, Amber 5-10 8-9 19; Moore, Denise 6-12 4-6 16; Culler, Whitley 4-6 3-6 11; Rann, LaCourtney 2-6 0-0 5; Sealey, Cameron 1-7 3-4 5; Safrit, Jami 1-5 2-2 4; Fulmer, Kristen 0-1 3-4 3; Kremer, Jacquelyn 1-4 1-2 3; Mitch, Brittany 0-2 0-0 0.
