MERCER SPORTS NETWORK

Mercer University Athletics has announced that it has renewed its contract with Clear Channel Broadcasting Inc. to serve as the flagship radio network for the University’s women’s basketball games in 2010-11. FOX 1670 AM will serve as the flagship station for all broadcasts this season. MU will also broadcast selected Mercer men’s basketball, baseball and softball games. Plans for the expanded coverage to include those sports are currently being formulated, but have not yet been finalized. Mercer’s Atlantic Sun Conference games will be among the broadcasts, including the 2011 A-Sun Basketball Championships, to be played once again this year on the Mercer campus at the University Center. Rick Cameron, “Voice of the Bears” for the past four seasons, will continue to call the play-by-play. Mercer’s senior assistant vice president for marketing communications returned to the broadcast booth in 2006 after originally doing radio play-by- play in the late 1970s.

2011-12 WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE

2011-12 SEASON PREVIEW

OVERVIEW

The 2011-12 basketball season marks a new beginning for head coach Susie Gardner and her staff at Mercer. Gone are memories of a 2-27 record a season ago, instead replaced with excitement for a rebirth of the Mercer basketball program. This year, Gardner enters her second season at Mercer and is eager to give fans a taste of a team truly fashioned in her image. Gardner welcomes back six players from last year, players who have bought in to her system and are committed to the long-term success of the program. Joining the six returners are eight newcomers – a handpicked selection of talent that comprise Gardner’s first recruiting class at Mercer. Three post players and five guards are among the new arrivals, creating a healthy competition for playing time. On paper, the Bears are again one of the youngest teams in the nation, with zero seniors, four juniors, four sophomores and six freshmen on the roster. But look between the lines and you’ll see that the sophomores and juniors on the team are among the most experienced players in the conference. Four players (Sharnea Boykin, Shari Smith, Brittnee Hazel and Briana Williams) finished last season ranked among the top-30 conference players in minutes played.

COACHES

The combination of five returning starters, two key reserves and eight newcomers provide Mercer fans the opportunity to get in on the ground level of Gardner’s main project – the resurgence of the Mercer women’s basketball program.

PREVIEW

Also back are juniors Kendra Grant and Alex Phillips. Grant was undoubtedly the emotional leader of last year’s squad, but suffered a knee injury that kept her sidelined for the second half of her sophomore campaign. Phillips had a breakout season in 2010-11, bumping her scoring average from 1.8 points per game in her freshman season to 7.5 last year.

SCHEDULE

BEARS

Matchups with Auburn, Notre Dame, Wake Forest and Georgia bolster a daunting slate of games announced by Mercer women’s basketball head coach Susie Gardner on August 24th. In all, the Bears’ 2011-12 campaign features 11 non-conference contests in supplement to 18 Atlantic Sun Conference tilts.

REVIEW MERCER

Of Mercer’s 20 regular season opponents, five (Notre Dame, Georgia, Central Florida, Florida Gulf Coast and East Tennessee State) finished the 2010-11 season ranked among the nation’s top-100 teams according to RealTimeRPI.com. Four opponents (Notre Dame, UCF, Georgia and Stetson) made appearances in the 2011 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament.

RECORDS

“I like our schedule,” Mercer head coach Susie Gardner said. “It features an exceptional home slate and also very challenging road trips.”

2011-12 WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE

After its lone preseason exhibition game – a meeting with Georgia College in the University Center on Nov. 3 – Mercer gears up for its first regular season opener at home since 2007. Mercer’s season tip-off against Auburn marks the second-straight year the Bears face the Tigers in game one. This year’s edition of the marquee matchup is scheduled for Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. and marks the annual homecoming event. After hosting the Tigers, Mercer hits the road for a clash with Davidson on Nov. 14 before returning to Macon for a meeting with Georgia Southern on Nov. 17. Following the Georgia Southern game, Mercer travels south to Orlando for a clash with UCF on Nov. 20. The game at UCF kicks off a five-game road stretch that sees the team tackle Wake Forest (Nov. 23), High Point (Nov. 25), Lipscomb (Dec. 1) and Belmont (Dec. 3). The trip to Nashville for games against Lipscomb and Belmont signify the start of Mercer’s 20-game conference schedule. Georgia invades the University Center on Dec. 6, marking the Bulldogs’ first trip to Macon since February 1, 1993. That game is followed by a home event against Troy (Dec. 18) before a road trip to UNC Ashville on Dec. 21. Winthrop is scheduled for a University Center showing on Dec. 28 before Mercer closes out the calendar year hosting Notre Dame on Dec. 30.

PREVIEW

The Fighting Irish are Mercer’s final non-conference opponent of the season, as January ushers-in the start of a 16-game streak of A-Sun foes. The league’s round-robin format in basketball guarantees Mercer fans a look at each of the conference opponents.

“Once again the A-Sun will be a very competitive league,” Gardner said. “There is going to be a lot of curiosity on the part of other teams wondering how we will do and how early we will be competitive. I’ve liked what we’ve done in the weight room this summer and our individual workouts are going great.” For the third-straight year, Mercer hosts the Atlantic Sun championship in the University Center. This year’s event is scheduled for Feb. 29-March 3, 2012.

SUSIE GARDNER Head Coach Second Season Georgia, 1986

COACHES

PREVIEW

In her first year at Mercer, Gardner faced what she describes as her greatest challenge in 18 years of coaching at the Division I level. Her first team at Mercer was the third-youngest team in Division I basketball – the 12-player roster featured a combined seven years of collegiate playing experience prior to the season. Mercer finished 2-27 – a tally that doesn’t represent the growth the team experienced under Gardner’s direction. The 2010-11 team suffered numerous heartbreaking losses, dropping nine games by six points or less. The season did produced several bright spots, as freshman Briana Williams landed Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year, Second Team All-Atlantic Sun team and A-Sun All-Freshman Team honors. Freshman guard Sharnea Boykin led the conference in both minutes played and assists and sophomore Alex Phillips increased her scoring average from 1.8 to 7.5 points per game. The 2010-11 season also provided Gardner the opportunity to begin recruiting her own players and truly build a Mercer team with her stamp on it. The 2011-12 season will see eight of Gardner’s recruits make their Division I collegiate debuts with Mercer. Before arriving at Mercer, Gardner spent the three previous campaigns (2007-10) as an assistant coach at the University of Florida. She joined the Gators after four seasons (2003-07) as the head coach at the University of Arkansas to give her the past seven seasons as a coach in the Southeastern Conference, regarded by many as the toughest college women’s basketball league in the nation. At Florida, the 2009 Gators advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament with Gardner on staff. Likewise, UF sandwiched that with WNIT appearances in 2008 and 2010 (advancing to the round of 16 during Gardner’s first year and to the second round in 2010). With Gardner at the Razorbacks’ helm in 2004-05, Arkansas earned a trip to the WNIT tournament. Prior to that, she had the SEC “Player of the Year” in 2003-04. Arkansas was a combined 64-54 during Gardner’s tenure and her 2005-06 team raced out to the best SEC start in the Lady ‘Hogs program history. Gardner cut her teeth as a Division I head coach at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn., where she

had a highly-successful seven season run (1996-2003) and was 112-93. The Lady Govs accomplishments during that period included three Ohio Valley Conference tournament championships (2001, 2002 & 2003), and OVC regular season title (2003) and three NCAA post-season berths (2001, 2002 & 2003). Gardner was tabbed as the OVC “Coach of the Year” in 2003. She also produced the OVC “Player of the Year” in both 2003 and 2004, with her players also garnering the league’s “Freshman of the Year” awards twice (2000 and 2001). From 1992-95, Gardner was the assistant coach at Western Athletic Conference power San Diego State University. In her three seasons with the Aztecs, she was a part of a program that won three-consecutive WAC tournament championships and, subsequently, also made three NCAA tourney appearances. SDSU was 69-20 with Gardner on staff and garnered two WAC regular season crowns in 1994 and 1995.

PREVIEW

Gardner is no stranger to middle Georgia or the Southeast region, having spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at the University of Georgia (1986-88) following a highly-successful four-year playing career for the Bulldogs under legendary head coach Andy Landers. UGA made the NCAA Final Four her last two years as a player – including a national runner-up finish in 1985 - and reached the NCAA tournament both of her years as a graduate assistant, as well. The Bulldogs won the SEC title in 1983, 1984 and 1986 as Gardner played alongside other noteworthy Georgia players like Teresa Edwards, Janet Harris and Katrina McClain.

Wierzba joined Gardner’s staff in the summer of 2010 after a stint at the University of Maryland where he served as the women’s basketball Director of Operations. Wierzba spent three seasons with the Terps (2007-10), in which he handled day-to-day operations of the team, coordinated team travel, scheduled practice and served as a liaison to the Academic Support and Career Development office. Prior to his time at Maryland, Wierzba spent two seasons as the Director of Operations for the men’s basketball program at Evansville University. After two years, he was named interim assistant coach in the spring of 2007 before taking the position at Maryland. Gardner first met Wierzba during her time as head coach of the women’s program at Austin Peay University. Wierzba was a four-year player at Austin Peay, where he helped the Governors win back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference titles. A team captain for two years, he was named an OVC Scholar Athlete in his senior season. After graduating summa cum laude, Wierzba went on to play professionally in Mexico and Canada before returning to Austin Peay as a graduate assistant coach in 2004.

Swoffard played under Gardner for four seasons at Austin Peay, including two consecutive seasons in which the Lady Governors captured Ohio Valley Conference tournament championships and represented the league in the NCAA tournament (2000-02). “She was always our student host for recruits and a great person to be around,” said Gardner. “Like Rhet, she’s been somebody I’ve wanted to hire since I left Arkansas.” Following her time at Austin Peay, Swoffard spent three seasons at the helm of the Georgia Metros AAU basketball team before joining the staff at Rowan University (N.J.) as a graduate assistant. Most recently, Swoffard had been an assistant coach at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith for four seasons. In her first year with the Lady Lions, Swoffard helped guide the team to a 34-2 record and the Bi-State Conference East Division title, the NJCAA Region II tournament championship and a third-place finish at the national tournament. Swoffard earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing from Austin Peay in 2002.

1

All told, Mercer (0-1) outscored Auburn (1-0) 41-39 in the second half.

Williams’ shot of the evening came with 5:48 on the clock as she buried a three pointer to cut the Auburn lead to 10 at 64-54. Williams’ trifecta came in front of the Mercer bench and ignited the Orange and Black sideline. Auburn proved resilient, scoring the game’s next six points to quell the Mercer emotion. Following Williams’ aforementioned three pointer, the Tigers finished the game on a 15-7 run.

COACHES

PREVIEW

Mercer’s second-half charge was fueled by freshman Briana Williams, who netted 20 of her game-high 23 points in the final 20 minutes. Williams’ 23 points came on 7-of-17 shooting, including 5-of-10 beyond the arc.

REVIEW

Trailing 21-10 with just over eight minutes to go in the first half, Mercer employed a 15-4 run over the next 4:26 to knot the game at 25 apiece. Mercer’s surge was capped by eight-straight points from Williams. Mercer’s charge forced Georgia Southern head coach Rusty Cram to call a timeout to halt the shifting momentum. Cram’s stoppage proved effective as the Eagles closed the half on a 9-0 run of their own, sending Mercer into intermission behind 34-25.

Nov. 19, 2010 Macon, Ga. University Center

MACON, Ga. – Three Mercer players scored in double figures and the Bears held a five point advantage at halftime, but Furman’s Kelly O’Connor netted 20 second half points to lift the Paladins to a 63-47 win in Friday night’s non-conference women’s basketball game. Mercer fell to 0-3 for the first time since the 2006-07 season while Furman moved to 1-1 on the year. After Mercer took a 26-21 lead into intermission, the teams split the first 20 points of the second half. Trailing 36-31 with 10:12 remaining, Furman point guard Kaitlin Murphy was fouled and converted a pair of free throw attempts, trimming the Mercer lead to three.

Nov. 27, 2010 Atlanta, Ga. Georgia State Sports Arena

ATLANTA, Ga. – Mercer freshman Brittnee Hazel scored 10 of her career-high 14 points in the second half, but Mercer was upended by Rice in Saturday afternoon’s non-conference women’s basketball game. The game, which marked Mercer’s first at the Georgia State Thanksgiving Tournament, was held at the Georgia State Sports Arena. Mercer drops to 0-4 while Rice moved to 3-3 on the season. After scoring four points and grabbing two rebounds in the first half, Hazel came out energized after the break. The Loganville, Ga. native was four-of-six shooting in the second half while adding five rebounds and a pair of steals in the final 20 minutes. Hazel’s classmate, Williams, scored a team-high 16 points in the loss. Williams got the scoring started for Mercer, burying a deep three to give Mercer its first lead of the afternoon at 3-2. Moments later, sophomore Sharmesia Smith drove to the bucket and dished to Hazel to put the Bears in front, 5-2. After Hazel’s layup, Rice scored the next ten points and Mercer could not regain the lead for the remainder of the game.

Dec. 2, 2010 Nashville, Tenn. Curb Event Center

ATLANTA, Ga. – Mercer sophomore Sharmesia Smith scored a season-high 12 points and the Bears closed to within two points of Alabama A&M in the waning seconds, but the Bulldogs forced a key stop and ultimately prevailed 63-59 in Sunday afternoon’s women’s basketball contest.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mercer freshman Briana Williams netted a career high 32 points to lead the Bears to a 69-56 triumph over Belmont in Thursday night’s Atlantic Sun women’s basketball game. The game, which marked the conference opener for both teams, was held at the Curb Event Center.

The game was held at the GSU Sports Arena and was the consolation game of the Georgia State Thanksgiving Tournament. With the win, Alabama A&M moved to 1-3 while Mercer fell to 0-5.

Williams’ 32 points marked the highest scoring output for an Atlantic Sun player this season, surpassing USC Upstate’s Tee’Ara Copney’s 28 point total at Marshall.

Holding possession and trailing 61-59 with 1:00 on the clock, Mercer turned to its prolific freshman scorer Briana Williams to force a tie game. Williams drove the lane, created space and released a pull-up jumper that swirled around the rim and back out. Alabama A&M’s Whiquitta Tobar came away with the defensive rebound and scored with a pull-up jumper of her own on the other end to seal the victory for the Bulldogs.

Hazel responded with her best collegiate game, finishing just two rebounds shy of Mercer’s first double-double of the season. Hazel established herself as a force early on the on the game, converting each of her first four field goal attempts and scoring eight points in the first five minutes of the game.

Mercer fell to 1-8 with the loss while Charleston Southern moved to 5-7 on the year. With the game knotted at 68, Charleston Southern’s Katie Tull stroked her fifth three pointer of the night with 13 seconds on the clock.

Boykin chased down the rebound and kicked it out to Grant, who had an open look at a game-tying three with two seconds to go. Grant’s shot clanged off the front of the rim and Charleston Southern prevailed.

COACHES

PREVIEW

After Gardner called timeout, Mercer guard Sharnea Boykin quickly advanced the ball up the sideline. Mercer looked to freshman Briana Williams to create space, but she was smothered by a Buccaneer defender and her three point attempt was off the mark.

With just over four minutes remaining, Mercer held a 67-61 advantage when UNC Asheville’s Lindsey Montgomery was fouled trying to convert a fast-break layup. Montgomery hit both of her free throw attempts, sparking an 8-0 run that saw the Bulldogs take their first lead of the game with 3:15 to go in regulation. With one minute to go, Mercer trailed by one (72-71) and held possession. The Bears missed two jumpers, but each time Grant tracked down the offensive rebound to give the hosts another crack at a lead. After Grant’s second board, Williams beat her defender off the dribble and created just enough space to convert a layup and regain the advantage for Mercer with 37 seconds to go. UNC Asheville raced back down the court and Montgomery dished to Kelli Riles for the eventual game-winning layup with 27 seconds on the game clock.

COACHES

All told, Mercer forced the Yellow Jackets into 19 turnovers on Tuesday.

PREVIEW

Hazel’s steal defined the Mercer defensive effort in the opening minutes, as a scrappy Bears defense forced the Yellow Jackets into four turnovers in the opening five minutes of play.

In a back-and-forth contest throughout that featured six ties and six lead changes, ETSU used back-to-back three-pointers by Tara Davis and Natalie Pickwell to break the game open. The Buccaneers finished the final 6:55 of the game on a 14-4 run to pull out the win.

Jan. 5, 2011 Macon, Ga. University Center

MACON, Ga. – Despite holding a five point lead with just under six minutes remaining in the game, the Mercer women’s basketball team couldn’t sustain its advantage, falling 70-64 to the visiting Spartans from USC Upstate on Wednesday evening at the University Center. Mercer drops to 1-12 overall and 1-3 in A-Sun play with the loss, while USC Upstate improved to 7-5 overall and 4-0 in conference action with the win. Freshman Briana Williams finished tied for the game-high with 19 points while classmate Brittnee Hazel recorded the team’s first double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

With the Bears trailing 66-63 with 1:32 to go, Williams sidestepped her defender and drew a foul in the paint. Williams hit the front end of her free throws to trim the deficit to 66-64. That would be as close as the Orange and Black got the rest of the way, with sophomore Lauren McRoberts hitting three free throws down the stretch to seal the win for the Spartans.

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Mercer freshman Brittnee Hazel notched her second-straight double-double as the Bears were defeated by Campbell, 68-46 in Monday afternoon’s Atlantic Sun women’s basketball game at Gore Arena. Campbell captured its fourth-straight win and moved to 5-10 (4-2 A-Sun) while Mercer dropped its eighth-straight game and fell to 1-13 (1-4 A-Sun). Hazel tallied a team-high 19 points and added 10 rebounds in the losing effort. Freshman Rebecca Clanton reached a careerhigh with 11 points while adding two rebounds and a steal. Hazel has now scored in double digits in four of Mercer’s last five games. Freshman Sharnea Boykin dished 10 assists and scored three points against the Camels. Boykin has now tallied 10 assists in three of Mercer’s last five games. Boykin’s three 10 assist games give her the most double-digit assist performances in a single season for a Mercer player since Sally Skeldon accomplished the feat four times in the 2005-06 campaign.

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Freshman Brittnee Hazel paced Mercer with 16 points on eight-of-12 shooting as the Bears suffered an 100-62 defeat at the hands of ETSU in Monday evening’s Atlantic Sun women’s Basketball game at the MSHA Athletic Center.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Freshman Briana Williams scored 21 of her game-high 25 points in the first half as Mercer dropped a 70-49 decision to Atlantic Sun conference foe North Florida on Friday at UNF Arena.

ETSU claimed its fifth-straight win and moved to 13-9 (10-3 A-Sun) while Mercer dropped its 15th-straight game and fell to 1-20 (1-11 A-Sun).

UNF improved to 12-14 (10-7 A-Sun) while Mercer dropped to 2-24 (2-15 A-sun).

Mercer sophomores Alex Phillips and Sharmesia Smith joined Hazel in double figures, each scoring 10 points in the loss. Phillips added seven rebounds, a block and an assist while Smith grabbed five rebounds, notched one assist and one steal.

Sophomore Alex Phillips finished just shy of a double-double effort, collecting eight points and 13 rebounds in 34 minutes of action. Phillips’ 13 rebounds tied a career-high set at Belmont on Dec. 5, 2009.

After shooting 36.7% (11-of-30) from the field in the first half, Mercer shot 16-of-28 (57.1%) in the second stanza. ETSU shot 57.1% from the field the entire game, converting 40 of its 70 field goal attempts.

In the first four minutes of the second half, Mercer missed three of four shots and had four turnovers, allowing UNF to move out to a 41-30 lead. Mercer head coach Susie Gardner attempted to quell the UNF momentum with a timeout, but her strategy proved ineffective and the Ospreys extended their advantage to 19 (51-32) with 12:46 to go.

The Lady Bucs were also eight-of-16 from three point range, led by junior Natalie Pickwell’s four long-range shots. Pickwell led all scorers with 20 points in 30 minutes of action.

UNF would lead by double digits the rest of the way.

MACON, Ga. - Freshmen Briana Williams and Brittnee Hazel combined for 35 of Mercer’s 67 points as the Bears suffered a 70-67 defeat at the hands of Lipscomb on Saturday afternoon at the University Center. The loss marked Mercer’s final contest of the season and dropped the Bears to 2-27 (2-18 A-Sun). Lipscomb wrapped up its regular season at 9-20 (6-14 A-Sun). Williams led all scorers with 18 points while Hazel chipped in 17 of her own. Hazel also added eight rebounds and three steals in the losing effort. The final 7:08 of play featured five lead changes and three tie scores as the teams exchanged blows. With just over a minute left, a layup by Hazel gave the hosts a one point edge (67-66) and ignited the University Center crowd.

Mercer had the opportunity to take the lead multiple times in the final minute, but missed each of its final three field goal attempts. Mercer outscored Lipscomb in both points off turnovers (25-20) and second chance points (19-13).

Note: Mercer played the 1971-72 season as a member of the Southern Women’s Athletic Conference before joining the Georgia AIAW for the 1972-73 season. The Bears played in the GAIAW through the 1981-82 season before competing as an independent until 1985-86 when Mercer became a charter member of the New South Women’s Athletic Conference. The NSWAC merged with the Trans-America Athletic Conference in July 1991, which changed its name to the Atlantic Sun Conference in July 2001.

MERCER LEGENDS

A list of legendary players at Mercer begins with Andrea Congreaves. Congreaves re-wrote the Mercer record book during her dazzling four-year career. She was a three-time Conference Player of the Year, and a member of the 1993 Kodak All-America team. She is the all-time leader in points, field goals and field goal percentage. She is second in free throws made, blocked shots, three-pointers made and attempted, third in rebounds and rebounding average. She led the Bears to back-to-back conference championships in 1990-1991 and 1991-1992. She led the nation in scoring in 1991-92 (33.0 ppg) and 1992-93 (31.0 ppg). Congreaves’ incredible season also included a field goal percentage of .633, 11.6 rebounds per game and 77 three-point field goals made on 185 attempts for a .416 percentage. Congreaves went on to play four seasons in the WNBA after her Mercer career, spending two seasons with the Charlotte Sting and two seasons with the Orlando Miracle. She is also the

game win streak before the loss to Texas. That season also marked the beginning of another Mercer legend, Emma Mumphrey. She finished her career as the third member of the 2,000-point club with 2,098. Mumphrey is second in field goal percentage, finishing her career with 859 made on 1,524 attempts, a .564 shooting percentage, a mark that stood until the 1992-93 season.

only Bear to have her jersey retired, as she was honored with a ceremony in 1993. Vivian Humphrey is Mercer’s second all-time leading scorer with 2,284 points during her career between 1977-81. She held the top spot on the scoring list until Congreaves claimed the throne. Humphrey ranks second all-time in field goals made (925), and first in field goals attempted (2,125) as well as free throws made, edging out Congreaves with a career total of 434. Humphrey led the Bears during one of the most successful periods in the program’s history. During the 1978-79 season, the Bears won 22 games with just 10 losses under coach Jane Fontaine and went on to win the GAIAW state championship. After that season, the Bears came back strong to defend their title. The team posted a program-high 29 wins during the 1979-80 campaign. The Bears rolled through the GAIAW Tournament, and into the Region III tournament. The Bears hosted Texas in the AIAW National Tournament. The 81-80 loss ended Mercer’s season, but not before adding another title, and a 12-

Huskey (1,867) and Blalock (1,856) rank fourth and fifth respectively on the scoring list, and were the first players to record 1,000 points in their career. Under head coach Peggy Collins, the Bears went 87-13, a .870 winning percentage. Myrel Huskey held the top spot on Mercer’s all-time scoring list for less than a decade, when Vivian Humphrey surpassed her career total, but her name still remains near the top in every major offensive category. Sybil Blalock, former Mercer head coach and current SWA, has achieved many accolades that are still remembered throughout the Mercer record books. She was honored as a member of the WNIT AllAmerica Team in 1975. Cindy Brogdon played only two seasons for Mercer, but she made an impact in her time here. She averaged 30.1 points per game for each season, the third highest total in school history. Brogdon finished with 1,746 points, placing her sixth on the scoring list. But her two individual seasons of 902 points in 1975-76 and 844 points in 1976-77 stood as the best single seasons until Congreaves’ remarkable 1991-92 season. After her Mercer career she played for the 1976 U.S. Olympic women’s basketball team in Montreal. Brogdon averaged 5.8 points and 2.0 rebounds, helping the American squad bring home a silver medal.

CHAMPIONSHIP TRADITION

64

Mercer women’s basketball began play in 1970 and it didn’t take long for the program to find success. In just its second year of existence, the Bears finished with a 21-1 record in 1971-72 and claimed the regularseason and tournament titles in the Southern Women’s Athletic Conference. The Bears went on a run of six-straight winning seasons under their first head coach, Peggy Collins, who is Mercer’s all-time winningest coach with 133 wins and has an .801 winning percentage. After a one season stumble in 1977-78 under new coach Jane Fontaine, the Bears rebounded quickly winning 51 games in the next two seasons under Fontaine. In 1978-79, under the direction of Fontaine, the Bears won the GAIAW state championship. That team was led by one of the legends of Mercer women’s basketball, Vivian Humphrey. Humphrey is the second leading scorer in Mercer history, and is one of three members of the exclusive 2,000-point club. Charlotte Nicholson was finishing up her brilliant career with 1,256 points, 11th in the Mercer record books. Kathy Singletary, eighth on Mercer’s all-time scoring list, was in her first year with the Bears. Mercer went 22-10 that season, notching victories over Georgia, Georgia Southern, Florida State, Florida, Ole Miss and Auburn. The Bears defeated Valdosta State for the GAIWA state title, but would lose to them in the third round of the Region III Tournament. The Bears kept right on rolling during the 1979-80 season, setting a school record with 29 wins. Humphrey returned to lead the Bears along with Singleton. That season saw the emergence of another future legend of Mercer, Emma Mumphrey. Mumphrey would finish her career with 2,098 points, third on Mercer’s all-time list. That Mercer team came out of the blocks on fire, ripping off seven wins in a row. The Bears had a one game stumble at Mississippi College, then notched three more wins over Auburn, Stetson and Pittsburgh. The Bears suffered back-to-back losses only once the entire season, against Clemson and Ole Miss. They went on a tear to end the season and went into the GAIAW Tournament having won 12 in a row, the third-longest win streak in the program’s history. Mercer’s tournament run consisted of wins over Valdosta State and Georgia Southern to win the GAIAW State Title, before moving on to the Region III tournament in Cleveland, Miss. Mercer swept the Region III tournament with wins over South Alabama, Florida State and Georgia Southern. This put the Bears at home hosting Texas in the AIAW National Tournament, after a tight game, the Longhorns prevailed 81-80 ending Mercer’s season, but the success of the 1979-1980 season still remains. Mercer went through some rebuilding after that magical season, but the success returned to Porter Gym for the 1984-85 season. The Bears were led by the senior leadership of Anita Meadows. She finished her career with a total of 1,088 points, which is 15th all-time for the Bears. Throw on top of that the strong play of freshmen and eventual 1,000-point club member Dawn Jackson (1,120 points, 14th all-time). Their 24 wins equaled the second highest total in school history. They compiled a 14-game win streak, a mark only be topped by the remarkable 19-0 start for the 1971-72 squad. This team found national success on a level the program had never seen before, reaching the NCAA Division II Tournament and continuing their run of great play. A victory over North Alabama clinched the NCAA South Championship, followed by a victory over Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn., in the NCAA Quarterfinals put the Bears into the Final Four in Springfield, Mass. Central Missouri squared off against the Bears and their 14-consecutive wins, but Central Missouri prevailed 82-79.

Mercer’s most decorated player brought home the next two championship banners. Andrea Congreaves patrolled the hardwood of Porter Gym from 1989-1993, and filled up the stat sheets with 2,796 points, 1,107 field goals made including 153 3-pointers, 429 free throws made and 1,141 rebounds. She was supported by Stephany Raines during the two championship seasons; Raines is by no surprise, the all-time leader in assists with 851. Mercer opened its 1990-91 season against perennial powerhouse

The 1985 team that reached the Division II Final Four gave Mercer is first appearance in a national tournament since the 1980 squad played int he AIAW National Tournament. Old Dominion, on the road, under the guidance of first year head coach Lea Henry. The Bears went into ODU and walked out victorious and carried that momentum to a 4-0 start. After the fast start, the Bears lost two in a row for the only time during their title run. The Bears finished 1990-91 with an 18-9 overall record, and a 10-2 conference record. Congreaves led the nation in scoring average that season, with 33 points per contest. The Bears lost to Florida A&M in the conference tournament, ending their season, but not before the first New South Women’s Athletic Conference banner in program history adorned the rafters of Porter Gym. The 1991-92 Bears started slowly by dropping the first two games to Tennessee State and South Florida. After drawing back to .500 with consecutive wins over Marist and UCF, the Bears fell to 2-4 after two straight losses to Georgia and College of Charleston. Then things started clicking. The Bears ran off nine straight victories, a loss to Southeastern Louisiana slowed the roll, but it did not stop it. Mercer reeled off eight more wins, then traded consecutive losses to Florida International and Florida Atlantic with consecutive wins over Georgia State and Florida A&M. Mercer clinched a share of the regular season title yet again, this time sharing with Florida International as both finished 10-2. The Bears finished 20-8 that season, Andrea Congreaves led the NCAA in scoring once again, averaging 31.0 points. She won her second Conference Player of the Year award, and set the stage for her selection to the Kodak All-America team in 1993.

Note: Mercer played its home games at various venues in Macon until the University Center opened on Feb. 1, 2004. The program split games between Porter Gym on campus and the Macon Coliseum until the late 1990s when some games were shifted to the Macon Centreplex. Beginning with the 2000-01 season, the Bears returned to campus for a majority of their home games but would face Homecoming opponents at the Macon Coliseum or Centreplex.

THIS IS MERCE What distinguishes a good university from a great university extends far beyond the boundaries of its curriculum and its campus. The competence and character of an institution’s graduates are, more often than not, the hallmarks by which its reputation is both earned and measured. As a private, co-educational institution, Mercer University has emerged as one of the premier universities in the Southeast and the nation. Mercer is truly a dynamic and comprehensive center of undergraduate, graduate and professional education. Mercer’s outstanding faculty take students beyond the rigors of academic programs to explore the challenges of reason, responsibility, compassion and character. Through learning, living and leading, Mercer students are prepared not only to confront, but also to embrace the challenges of their future. Under the leadership of prominent Georgia Baptist leader Jesse Mercer, Mercer University was founded in Penfield, Ga., in 1833 and later moved to Macon in 1871. From its humble beginnings as a small liberal arts college, Mercer now offers programs in 11 schools and colleges. Conveniently located in the middle of the state, Macon serves as the educational, medical, cultural and commercial hub of central Georgia. Located just one hour from Atlanta - one of the nation’s most


CER... popular international cities - and two hours from the Atlantic coast, Macon is easily accessible from two interstate highways - I-75 and I-16. Consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review among the nation’s leading universities, Mercer considers one of its strengths to be its superior faculty, who “teach from the heart.” At Mercer, students benefit from learning experiences guided by caring faculty, not teaching assistants found at many universities as is the case at many universities. The Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA recently named Mercer as a “highly selective” university, and The Princeton Review has placed Mercer among the Best 351 Colleges in North America. The University is comprised of the College of Liberal Arts, the Walter F. George School of Law, the School of Pharmacy and Health Services, the School of Medicine, the Eugene W. Stetson School of Business and Economics, the School of Engineering, the James and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology, the Tift College of Education, the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, the College of Continuing and Professional Studies, and the Townsend School of Music. The University also operates the Mercer University Press in Macon and the Mercer Engineering Research Center in Warner Robins. Mercer’s enrollment is nearly 8,100 students. While many students come from the Southeast, more than 38 states and 30 countries are represented among the student body. The average class size at Mercer is 21, with a student/faculty ratio of 13:1 - unusually low for a major university.

CAMPUS LIFE Even with its picturesque setting, the spirit of Mercer is not in the grandeur of its buildings, but in the graciousness of its people - a friendly, family-like community of faculty, staff and students who strive for excellence in all that they do. The University offers a wealth of fascinating experiences and activities both in and outside the classroom. From academic clubs and honor societies, to performing arts and special interest groups, to 16 national fraternities and sororities on campus, students can choose from more than 80 on-campus organizations to discover new talents and interests and to gain important leadership skills they will need for life after college.

RESIDENCE LIFE

The benefits of campus living are numerous - the development of life-long friendships, a sense of community, enhancing campus involvement and higher academic performance. For many new students, this is the first time they have lived away from home, and the community that develops on campus and in residence halls becomes a second family. All freshman and sophomores (first-year and/or transfer students) are required to live on campus, with the exception of married students, students above the age of 21, students with children and/or students who live at home with a parent or guardian within reasonable commuting distance. In each of Mercer’s residence halls, safety comes first and foremost. The exterior doors are locked at all times, and students use their identification cards to gain access into their residence hall.

ercer broke ground on the centerpiece of the Macon campus in the fall of 2001. The University Center has become one of the premier venues in the nation for college basketball and volleyball. The $40 million facility has become the focal point for almost all campus activities, providing students with an area for study, a food court, and a coffee shop. The “Street” is a tree-lined, sunlit indoor patio, providing students with an area to study, socialize, and dine on cuisine from the food court, including Chick-Fil-A, Subway and Burger Studio. Bear Rock Cafe is a coffee shop and internet café for students to use either with high-speed connections throughout the floor area with the wireless internet connections, or with Bear Rock’s computers. Students can also relax and watch either of two flat screen televisions, or relax outside on the Patio overlooking the Greek Village and campus.

The University Center, on top of all the other amenities, is the home for Mercer basketball and volleyball. There are two full courts, one designated as the practice court, and the main floor in the center of the arena in the University Center. The main court is surrounded by 3,200 seats for basketball and volleyball, but can be expanded for up to 4,080 with floor seating for concerts. Three skyboxes at mid-court provide a birds-eye view of the action on the floor. The main entrance into the Arena at the University Center is Mercer’s Heritage Hall. This is a collection recognizing some of Mercer’s most important alumni, faculty and staff. There are many different displays, including the Mercer Hall of Fame which honors the accomplishments of Mercerians through the years. Displays also include the history of Mercer Athletics and a History of Mercer itself.

MERCER BASKETBALL REACHING OUT

MERCER UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT

WILLIAM D. UNDERWOOD

President Underwood has led Mercer during a period of dynamic growth and development for the University. Since his arrival as Mercer’s 18th President in 2006, enrollment has increased by 18 percent to more than 8,200 students. Mercer has launched a second medical school campus (in Savannah), initiated a master’s-level physician assistant program and a doctoral-level program in physical therapy and added Ph.D. programs in Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction, and Nursing. Reflecting an increased emphasis on research, Mercer in 2009-10 met the criteria established by the Carnegie Foundation for reclassification as a research-doctoral university. Over the past three years, the number of Ph.D. students has increased from fewer than 25 to approximately 200, while the amount of externally funded research expenditures has grown to nearly $25 million. In addition to increased levels of funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, Mercer scientists have for the first time been funded as eminent cancer scientists by the Georgia Cancer Coalition, while other Mercer scientists are now receiving funding to support their research through the Georgia Research Alliance. The University has intensified its long-standing commitment to service-learning and community engagement un-

der President Underwood’s leadership. During the spring of 2009, Mercer announced a $5 million grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support continued revitalization of the College Hill Corridor between campus and downtown Macon. The groundbreaking Mercer On Mission program, launched in 2007, has been recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative as “an exemplary approach to addressing a specific global challenge.” Mercer earned the highest federal recognition for community engagement by the Corporation for National and Community Service in 2009, and in 2008 became the only university in Georgia to receive the Carnegie Foundation’s designation for “Curricular Engagement and Outreach and Partnerships.” Prior to joining Mercer, President Underwood served at Baylor University as Interim President and held the prestigious Leon Jaworski Chair at the Baylor School of Law. President Underwood is an accomplished educator and scholar. He was designated a Master Teacher at Baylor in recognition of extraordinary classroom teaching over an extended period. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute and the American Bar Foundation. President Underwood was awarded the J.D. degree summa cum laude by the University of Illinois College of Law in 1985, where he graduated as class salutatorian and was an editor of the University of Illinois Law Review. Following graduation, he clerked for the Honorable Sam D. Johnson of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, prior to practicing law for several years with a large law firm in Dallas. He also holds an undergraduate degree from Oklahoma Baptist University, where he met his spouse, Lesli. They have two children, Jessica and William.


DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS JIM COLE

Jim Cole assumed the duties of Director of Athletics for Mercer University on July 1, 2010. Prior to that, he served as MU’s Senior Associate Director of Athletics for External Affairs, heading up the Mercer Athletics Foundation (the fund-raising arm for Bears’ athletics) concurrent with his time as a State Representative in Georgia. A native of Augusta, Cole entered Mercer on an academic scholarship in 1990 and lettered in baseball from 1990 to 1993. He was recipient of the Charles C. Morgan Outstanding Student-Athlete Award and graduated with honors from the University in 1993. Cole was drafted as a pitcher by the Milwaukee Brewers in 1993 and was named the franchise’s “Organizational Player of the Year” and a finalist for the TOPPS Minor League “Player of the Year Award” in 1994. After an injury ended his professional baseball career, he returned to Mercer in 1997 to earn his MBA while serving as a graduate assistant and pitching coach for the baseball team. In 1998 he served as pitching coach for the Madison Black Wolves minor league team in Madison, Wis. Cole then entered private business before being elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2004 (and serving in that capacity until 2010). Cole served as the legislative voice under the Gold Dome for the constituents of House District 125 - which includes Jasper County and parts of Monroe, Jones and Lamar Counties. His legislative duties included membership on the Appropriations Economic Development Sub-Committee (to oversees important areas of the budget that deal with agriculture, community affairs, economic development and transportation). In addition, Cole served on the Rules, Judiciary NonCivil and State Planning and Community Affairs Committees. Gov. Sonny Perdue appointed Cole to serve as senior administration floor leader in early 2009, having served formerly as assistant floor leader from 2007-2008. Even after leaving the political arena to assume the role as Mercers A.D., Cole was called on to continue his commitment of service to the people of the state of Georgia. In 2010, he was elected by his former constituents in Georgia’s House and Senate to represent the 8th Congressional District on the state’s Department of Transportation Board.

Cole is an active community leader throughout the state. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. A graduate of Leadership Georgia, he is a member of Forsyth United Methodist Church. Cole is married to the former Gaylyn Lawson of Forsyth, where they live with their two children, Caroline and Lawson.
