BUILDING A

Construction nearing completion on new Athletic Performance Center New facility will house weight room, practice space and locker facilities Construction is nearing completion on a brand new stateof-the-art Athletic Performance Center for Tennessee Tech student-athletes. The 25,000 square-foot facility, expected to open in January, 2011, will benefit every Golden Eagle student-athlete. When completed, it will be the finest such facility in the Ohio Valley Conference, with 10,000 square-feet for the new weight room and 10,000 square-feet for indoor practice and conditioning. At an estimated cost of $2 million, the facility will also house dressing room facilities including a team room for the Golden Eagle softball program.

By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential

The new building is going up west of the softball complex close to Pine Ave. The location allows for access to the newly built outdoor strength and conditioning area that includes an obstacle course, speed training sand pit, as well as a natural grass practice surface. Athletics is currently seeking financial support to furnish the building with state-of-the-art strength equipment to enhance the outstanding quality of the facility. To help Tech’s student-athletes with support for the purchase of equipment, please contact Grant Swallows, Associate Athletic Director for Development, either by phone (931-372-3929) or email at GSwallows@tntech.du.

2010-11 Golden Eagle Outlook

Shattering Expectations

Nine returning letter winners and five new faces help to comprise one of the strongest, most athletic basketball teams that Tech has seen yet.

Murphy scored in double figures in 28 of 33 games played, his highest mark being a 25-point game against non-conference foe Appalachian State on the road. Joining Jones and Murphy are returning seniors Byron Pickens and Charles Newton, as well as juniors Riley Hunley, Bassey Inameti and Zach Bailey and sophomores Terrell Barnes and Jud Dillard. Inameti and Barnes, both forwards, split time as starters last year. Inameti logged 13 starts and led the team with 23 blocks. Barnes started 17 times for the Golden Eagles and was recognized at the end of the season with the Golden Eagle award for overall contributions to the team.

Murphy ranked second on the team in guys,” Sutton said. “The depth of the team is one of our greatest strengths. We have defensive rebounds, but was recognized at the experience of 10 returnees, and we’ve added players that make us bigger and the end of the season for his contributions stronger than we were last year.


2010-11 Golden Eagle Outlook “We have the talent and depth to rotate numbers up into the teens,” he added. Sutton will look to improve the team defensively, something that he feels his new additions will help with. “We want to be better defensively and rebound the ball,” Sutton emphasized. “That’s a difficult area to be consistent in when you have younger teams. But our increased size and athleticism should translate into playing better defense on a more consistent basis.” The goals for the season are simple in theory, but not so much in reality. “Obviously we’d like to win all of our home games and be playing our best basketball at the end of the season,” Sutton said. “The ideal situation is to win at home and steal some games on the road,” he continued. Standing in the way of those goals is a notoriously difficult schedule, starting off with some intense non-conference opponents. The team’s first regular season game is against Sidney Lowe and the N.C. State Wolfpack in Raleigh on November 12, a team that Sutton defines as “NCAA caliber.” Tech will also square off against Tom Izzo’s squad at Michigan State on Nov. 28, a team that starts the season ranked in the top five in the nation, and could potentially reach the No. 1 spot before the year-end. “We have notoriously played one of the more difficult non-conference schedules, and this year is no different,” Sutton admitted. “East Tennessee is good, SIU Edwardsville and Lipscomb are good, and two of our non-conference opponents won their own conference championships last season.” Tech will also face High Point College, Crowley’s Ridge College, Bluefield College and Appalachian State out of conference. Aside from a challenging nonconference schedule, the Golden Eagles have the OVC to contend with. The Golden Eagles will fire up OVC play on December 4 against Jacksonville State on the road. Facing every conference op-

ponent twice, Tech will conclude conference play on Feb. 26 at home against Jacksonville State. “The league is getting stronger from top to bottom,” Sutton said. “One of the changes over the past two years is that the middle of the league is stronger.” Defending conference champion and NCAA Tournament participant Murray State will be returning a fair number of players, as will runner-up Morehead State. Selected as the pre-season No. 6, Tech sits at about the middle of the pack, which Sutton admits is understandable. “Based on what we lost [in Muhammad and Davis,] I understand that ranking. But I don’t think it’s where they pick you now [in the pre-season,] it’s where you finish,” Sutton emphasized. “The polls at the end of the season are a lot more important that those at the beginning.” Two of Tech’s conference match-ups in 2011 will potentially air on ESPN-U, as they will be facing Austin Peay in Clarksville on Jan. 20 and Eastern Kentucky at home on Feb. 3 in two “Wildcard” match-ups that could potentially broadcast nation-wide. The Golden Eagles will also compete in a BracketBuster game on Feb. 19 against an opponent that will be determined 21 days prior to the event. With his staff in place, including the newest assistant coach, former TTU standout DeAntoine Beasley, a member of the Golden Eagle team from 1998-02, Sutton is ready to lead his team in their run for the OVC title. “I like our staff, we’re fortunate to have one of the best, if not the best, coaching staff that Tech has seen with us this season.” The Ohio Valley Conference tournament will be held on March 2-5, with the top eight teams playing in the first round and the four winners duking it out in the finals in Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium.

Head Coach Mike Sutton

THE MIKE SUTTON FILE

needs of the players and the program. His ability to adjust in-game combined with his dedication to preparation make Sutton a motivational leader. “I have a lot of variety in my coaching background and I think that variety lends itself towards producing a comfort level at this job,” Sutton said. “I want to be supportive of every program at Tennessee Tech University and I want the coaches to know they can count on me if they need me. We have to remember that we’re in this together, serving the students, and I want to do my part.” Sutton began coaching as an assistant at his high school alma mater, D.H. Conley High School, while attending East Carolina University. After spending the 1978-79 season as an assistant coach at Lees-McRae (N.C.) Junior College, he was hired by Tubby Smith as an assistant for the 1979-80 season at Hoke County High School in Raeford, N.C. Before the season began, Smith left for an assistant coaching position at Virginia Commonwealth University, leaving Sutton behind but only temporarily. The next year, the two were reunited as assistants at VCU, helping the Rams advance to the 1981 NCAA Tournament. Sutton then left the college ranks and became head coach at Meadowbrook High School in Richmond, Va., taking over a downtrodden program that had tallied a 1-19 record the previous season. He turned the program around during his 13-year career from 1981-94, leading the team to the Class AAA State Championship in his final season. His coaching efforts

earned him The Associated Press Coach of the Year award for 1993-94. He compiled a 176-122 record at Meadowbrook before rejoining Smith at Tulsa. Including Kentucky, he has had five coaching stops with Smith. While coaching the Wildcats, Sutton’s duties included on-floor coaching and offcampus recruiting. He helped lead Kentucky to three Southeastern Conference regular season championships and three SEC tournament titles. The team played in the NCAA tournament all five seasons he was with the Wildcats, claiming the national title in 1998 with a 35-4 overall record. “In Mike Sutton, you will find a man who invokes an image of integrity, class and enthusiasm,” said University of Minnesota coach Tubby Smith, Sutton’s friend and former boss at Kentucky. “Mike’s work ethic, character and desire to be successful will all serve him well, and he understands that academics must be the first priority of the students. He is a true “team player” and he will bring an up-tempo style of play in a well-coached system that will be fun to watch. His teams will be disciplined, on and off the court.” Sutton was named, as Tech’s 11th men’s basketball head coach in April 2002. “We are very excited about Mike Sutton heading up our men’s basketball program,” said Tech president Bob Bell upon the hiring of the energetic new coach. “Throughout his entire career he has not only been a successful coach, but has proven that he is also committed to outstanding academics.”

Sutton appreciates the pace of life at Tennessee Tech. “One of the things that impresses me the most is the team and family atmosphere at the school,” Sutton said. “Every one is very supportive of the program and shows a genuine interest in the players. “The young men in the program are a great group and I really enjoy coaching them,” Sutton added. “I am really impressed by their attitude and the way they are respected by the people associated with the athletic department and the school. “Tennessee Tech students, staff, alumni, fans and the Cookeville community can look forward to exciting times in the future as the Golden Eagle basketball team continues to build on the Tennessee Tech tradition.” He received his bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education from East Carolina University in 1978, and his master’s degree in Health and Physical Education from Appalachian State University in 1979. Born March 21, 1956, in Farmville, N.C., Mike and his wife, Karen, have two children — Kelly Kern of Fort Mill, S.C. and Scott Hughes of St. Petersburg, Fla. The Suttons have four grandchildren — Grace Sutton Kern (9), Georgia Katherine Kern (6), Audrey Elizabeth “Libby” Kern (2) and Evelyn Riley Hughes (5).

Beasley played for Tech from 1997-2002 under both head coach Frank Harrell and Jeff Lebo, and helped to fuel the Golden Eagles to back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference Championships during the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons. In both seasons, Beasley filled the role as team captain and was awarded the John P. Hendrix Leadership Award for overall contributions to the team. He led his Golden Eagle team in blocked shots during the 2001 season, when they went 27-7 and won three NIT games.

Just over a year later, Beasley learned of the opportunity at Tech and immediately got in touch with his contacts here. A native of Atlanta, Ga., Beasley is recently engaged to Katie Hespe of Sheffield, England.

SWANSEY

Junior/ Guard 6-1 /180 lbs. Dunwoody, Ga. Dunwoody HS

2 In 2009-10 (Sophomore): Swansey sat out the 2009-10 season due to NCAA transfer regulations.

University of Georgia: As a freshman, Zac had an instant impact at Georgia, becoming the only freshman to have double-digit assists in his first career game, as Zac had 10 helpers in his college debut against Jacksonville State. He hit the game-winning 3-pointer in the 2008 SEC tournament against Kentucky, which propelled the Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament. Swansey scored a career-high 12 points against Hawaii, and matched that mark twice. He played in 31 of Georgia’s 32 games as a sophomore, including 17 starts and averaged 4.3 points and 2.9 assists in 20 minutes per game. He was second on the team in assists with 89 and steals with 35. High School: Zac was a first-team all-state selection his senior year at Dunwoody High school. He averaged 19.7 points, 4.2 assists, 3.4 steals and 3.1 rebounds his senior season. As a junior Zac helped Dunwoody to its second consecutive Class 3A state title while averaging 10.3 points and 6.3 assists per game.

His 3-pointer as the clock expired versus Kentucky showcased his ability to make big plays. His ability to create scoring opportunities off the dribble is outstanding and he will be a leader for the Golden Eagles in the backcourt. Last season he teamed up with fellow redshirt Chase Dunn to create havoc for the 2009-10 team in practice as they pushed seniors Frank Davis and Elijah Cunningham daily.” 38

2009-10 Season in Review Murphy’s buzzerbeater sends Tech to OVC semi-finals; Davis and Muhammad receives team’s top honors Riding the no. 6 seed into the post-season, the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles certainly can’t say that they weren’t a part of an exciting OVC tournament in 2010. Both TTU basketball programs drew the same assignment to kick off OVC post-season tournament play, match-ups against Austin Peay in Clarksville. There, already having notched 15 points for the Golden Eagles on the night, current junior Kevin Murphy went court-length to drain the biggest three points of the evening - and potentially of his career thus far - at the buzzer, clinching the win for Tech over the Govs, 68-65. The OVC opener was evenly matched to say the least, as Tech battled through four ties and six lead changes – one of each coming within the final 24 seconds of the game. Coming back from an eightpoint deficit, Tech built steam on a 12-2 run over six minutes for their largest lead of the game at 54-49. Over the entirety of the game, they dominated in the paint, out-rebounding the Govs 33-23, 12-4 offensively for 10 secondchance points out of the 36 scored inside. Victory gave TTU the national spotlight, as they advanced to take on no. 2 Morehead State at Bridgestone Arena in the semi-final game, televised on ESPNU. The MSU Eagles ended Tech’s season in that bout with a score of 76-47. Captained by seniors Frank Davis and Elijah Muhammad, the 09-10 squad capped off their season with a 15-17 overall record, having gone 9-11 against OVC opponents (including the

54

Elijah Muhammad post-season tournament). Davis repeated his 2008-09 feat of scoring seven three-pointers in a single game, while taking top honors with the most career 3-point field goals and attempts in Tech history with 251-616. He also notched over 1,000 points as of his final season, finishing his career with 1,118 points (22nd all time,) and 196 assists (21 all time) and 147 steals (8th all time). Muhammad finished with 230 career assists, having recorded 143 (2nd in the OVC) in his senior season, putting him at 18th all time at Tech. Current senior Alfred Jones led the Golden Eagles with a 66.7 field goal percentage, a statistic that lead the OVC on the season. Davis was the recipient of the Sam Harley Lynn Award for his overall contributions to the Tennessee Tech men’s basketball program, and senior Elijah Muhammad captured the John P. Hendrix Leadership Award as was also named the team’s Most Valuable Player, as head coach Mike Sutton announced the team’s 2009-10 award winners. Jones and now-junior Zach Bailey each won two awards and four other Golden Eagles received honors, Kevin Murphy presented by Sutton recently at the

TENNESSEE TECH MEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE / 2010-11


2009-10 Season in Review team’s annual Awards Dinner. The Golden Eagle Award went to current sophomore Terrell Barnes, while the two Academic Awards went to Frank Davis and Riley Hunley. Jones received the Most Improved Player award, while Murphy repeated as the Best Offensive Player winner and Bailey was named Best Defensive player for the second straight year. Sutton also presented seven team awards based on 2009-10 statistics. “Frank Davis has been a very important part of our program for the past four years and he was one of the best shooters in the country,” Sutton said of his senior guard from Gainesville, Ga., in presenting the Sam Harley Lynn Award. “He was among the hardest workers on our team, and he showed great poise and leadership. “Frank has unbelievable character, his academics are outstanding, and he was a leader throughout his career with his citizenship and sportsmanship,” Sutton added. In addition, Davis won the team’s Cumulative Academic Award, going through his Golden Eagle career with a 3.41 GPA. He served as a team co-captain along with Muhammad, and won the team’s 3-Point Shooting Award. As a senior, Davis was named second-team NABC alldistrict as he ranked second on the team in both scoring (13.4 ppg) and steals and third in assists. He led the OVC in 3-pointer per game, ranked 11th in scoring, fourth in 3-point percentage and fifth in free throw percentage. Muhammad, a senior from Columbus, Ohio, wrapped up his two-year Tech career by accepting the Leadership Award and the MVP award. He also won team awards for leading the Golden Eagles in both assists and steals. Muhammad averaged 11.9 points and 4.0 rebounds per game, and his totals of 143 assists and 44 steals topped the squad. He ranked second in the OVC in assists, and was ninth in the league in both steals and assist-to-turnover ratio. Jones, the only player to start all 32 games, accepted three honors from Sutton, including the Most Improved Player award. The other two were the Top Rebounder and Field Goal Percentage awards. Jones, a junior from Springfield, Ill., led the Ohio Valley Conference in field goal percentage, hitting 120-for-180 for 66.7 percent of his shots. He topped Tech and ranked 12th in the OVC in rebounds. Bailey earned the Best Defensive Player award and also claimed the honor for best free throw percentage. The 6-1 guard from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., overcame an early injury to finish hitting 84.5 percent at the charity line. Murphy, the leading scorer on the squad averaging 15.3 points per game, was named Best Offensive Player. He nearly doubled his freshman scoring output, finishing with 491 total points and ranked fifth in the OVC. The Golden Eagle Award went to Barnes, a freshman post player from Riverdale, Ga. Barnes averaged 4.2 points and

4.3 rebounds in his debut campaign. “Terrell came in and competed every single day,” Sutton said. “He never complained about anything, and he just fought and fought, and was solid in many areas. He showed an outstanding work ethic and showed great effort every single day.” Bassey Inameti, a sophomore forward from Lawrenceville, Ga., won the award for Most Blocked Shots. He finished with 23 blocks and ranked 10th in the OVC while averaging 4.3 points and 2.9 rebounds, and shooting 52.3 percent. The Academic Award for the best GPA during the Fall semester went to Hunley, a sophomore guard from Knoxville, who posted a perfect 4.0 average. The Cumulative GPA Award went to Davis.

The Ohio Valley Conference

From left: Beth DeBauche, Commissioner; Jennifer Gibbs, Assistant Commissioner for Championships; Heather Brown, Director of Media Relations; Brian Pulley, Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs; Kyle Schwartz, Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations; Brad Walker, Associate Commissioner/Chief Operating Officer.

Entering its 62nd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. The 2010-11 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the Mid-American Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles (Turkey) Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In 1955, the OVC became only the second sixmember league nationally to earn an automatic bid to the prestigious NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, which, at that time, was limited to only 24 participants. The Conference quickly proved worthy of that bid, as Morehead State defeated Marshall (107-92) and Wayne State (95-84) in the 1956 tournament. Fifteen years later, former OVC member Western Kentucky became the first and only Conference team to reach the Final Four. The Hilltoppers defeated Jacksonville, Kentucky and Ohio State before losing to Villanova in double overtime. WKU went on to finish in third place after beating Kansas 77-75 in the consolation game. Since that time, the OVC has recorded some of the biggest upsets in the history of the NCAA Tournament. Perhaps the most famous moment came in 1987, when Austin Peay came from fourth place in the regular season to win the OVC Tournament and earn the league’s automatic bid. The Governors drew powerful Illinois, and were such big underdogs, that ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale promised to stand on his head if APSU won the game. After a 68-67 victory over the Illini, and a narrow 90-87 overtime loss to eventual Final Four participant Providence in the second round, Vitale made good on his promise in a visit to Clarksville two months later. Murray State added to the OVC’s string of upsets

drafted by the Boston Celtics with the No. 58 pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. Hudson became the first draft pick for the league since 2004 and only the third pick of the last decade for the OVC. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 179 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last three years in 1988 when it knocked off 14th-ranked North Carolina State, 78-75. The Racers’ M&M Boys - Jeff Martin and Don (2006-07 to the present). Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Mann - combined for 39 points in the win.

TENNESSEE TECH MEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE / 2010-11


THIS IS TENNESSEE TECH u One of the “Top Southern Public Universities” by U.S. News & World Report u One of the “Best Southeastern Universities” and “America’s Best College Values” by The Princeton Review u Among “America’s 100 Best College Buys” by Institutional Research and Evaluations, Inc. Where Quality Counts

For nearly 100 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students. Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 65,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality -- an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university’s vision is guided by the “T.E.C.H.” framework — technological leadership, enrollment growth, a caring campus, and high quality. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained univer-

Why we're the Golden Eagles

sity status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

Campus Life

Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual. At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 14 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains -the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It's easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team's nicknames to "Golden Eagles" or "Mountaineers." On February 14, 1925, the nickname "Golden Eagles " was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were "Golden Eagles" and "Mountaineers," and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn't until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech

students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day's basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and a cartoon-style mascots in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.


ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION DR. ROBERT (BOB) BELL University President - Florida 1969 Dr. Robert (Bob) Bell, now in his 11th year as President of Tennessee Tech, is an avid supporter of TTU and Ohio Valley Conference sports. He currently chairs the OVC President’s Board of Directors. Bell became TTU’s President in 2000 after serving as dean, associate dean, assistant dean, and a chairperson in the university’s College of Business. After taking the post, he oversaw the reorganization of the athletics department, bringing in a full-time athletic director for the first time in almost 20 years. He has also been involved in statewide economic development on behalf of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, working on the THEC master plan focusing on links among higher education and stakeholders in business, health care and state government. Bell has served four terms on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award’s Board of Examiners and was appointed a charter member of the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence in 1992, serving on the group’s panel of judges from 1994 to 2005. He represented Tennessee as a state delegate to the White House Conference on North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994 and spent two years as an economic development consultant for the nation of Mauritius.

Dr. Bell has served on or chaired a variety of professional, regional and national organizations, including the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business International, the Southern Business Association, the North American Case Research Association, the Tennessee College Association, and a number of Tennessee higher education task forces, among others. In 2005, Bell was named the first recipient of the Ned R. McWherter Leadership Award, presented by the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence. In the scholarly arena, he has been published extensively in the fields of management, organizational design, computer science and quality/productivity management, authoring two books and more than 70 articles, case studies and papers.

He is also a member of the Cookeville Rotary and Evening Lions Clubs.

MARK WILSON Director of Athletics - Maine 1991 Mark Wilson’s first six years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have been highlighted by vision, energy, and enthusiasm. Those factors have facilitated growth and excellence in all areas and have placed the focus on generating a better student-athlete experience. Wilson is currently serving an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council through April, 2011. It gives the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 41, has led athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first six years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s studentathletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past three years Tech has completed several construction projects to athletic facilities, including resurfacing the outdoor tennis courts, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium. Most recently, Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex in

Eblen Center and construction is underway on an new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus. Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary resources for Tech’s student-athletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and regulations. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from Ohio University. Since his first day at Tech, Wilson has made rapid and steady progress. He began by restructuring the department and implementing plans for a better student-athlete experience. In addition, athletics launched a dynamic new website, gained NCAA certification and was found in complete compliance, created a far-reaching “WIN” program for academic success, opened an entertaining and popular Tailgate Park, and started plans for two capital projects. Before going to Ohio, Mark served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts. He also worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark and his wife, Michelle, have two daughters, Katey (15) and Meaghan (10).

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 150 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic Marilyn events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new stu- Borch-Jensen Academic dents. Advisement Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Secretary can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and

Dr. LANCE JASITT Assistant Athletics Director / Academics and Student Welfare

Dr. Lance Jasitt serves as Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare. He has served in compliance and administrative operations roles in the Tech Athletics Department since 1998. Dr. Jasitt plays a key role in the academic success of each of Tech’s varsity student-athletes, managers, and graduate assistants. His primary goals are to provide guidance and academic resources to permit student-athletes to maintain their academic eligibility under NCAA rules and to progress to graduation. In this process, Dr. Jasitt serves as a primary liaison between coaches and faculty. A detail-oriented person and a diligent worker, Dr. Jasitt has developed a solid understanding of the operations of the Athletics Department, the staff and the needs of its student-athletes. In addition to his administrative role within Athletics, Dr. Jasitt is also highly involved in promoting reading and literacy at all age levels. He was the 2008-09 president of the TTU Council of the International Reading Association and is still actively involved in that organization. He also has served on the President’s Commission on the Status of Women for seven years. Raised in York, Pa., he earned a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University in 1978 and added a master’s in public administration from Valdosta State University in 1987. In 1993, he received a master’s degree in education from Old Dominion University and added a Ph.D. in literacy education from Tennessee Tech in 2004. Dr. Jasitt is a former Commander in the U.S. Navy. His wife of 30 years, Donna White Jasitt, is a former Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve. They have two children, Ian and Meagan. Ian recently received his second degree from Tech, this one in Environmental Geology. Meagan is a senior Pre-Physical Therapy major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

Seven members of the 2010-11 basketball team were named to the Athletic Director’s honor roll.

By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso.trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core.

Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense

Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting The following are recommendations for athletes Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using concerning days and times of strength training many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training (including warm-ups): should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout having body weight supported by a machine and forcing * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground* Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

Assistant Strength Coaches

Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power. Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism.

Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, therefore making it harder to “fold” under pressure.
