Montevallo excels in Falcon Classic

One-on-one with Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Danny Young BY JORDON D. SEMIEN, Sports Editor

BY JORDON D. SEMIEN, Sports Editor

UM hosted the men’s and women’s Falcon Classic 8k cross country meet Saturday and had near similar finishes, as the Men’s team finished fourth overall, and the women took third. Both races boasted ten team fields as both teams look to gain some momentum midway through the season. On the Men’s side, Sophomore Zackery Walsh led the way for the Falcons with a time of 27:43.23, giving him the 18th overall spot in the race. Closest following Walsh were Junior David Smith at 21st (27:58.75) and Chris Pirrello at 22nd (28:02.53), as Augusta State’s Dustin Ross won with a time of (25:55.98). The Peach Belt Conference can take pride that they took the top four spots in the meet, with Augusta State University, Columbus State University, Clayton State University and the Univer-

sity of Montevallo finishing one through four respectfully. Moreover, the women’s team had an equally impressive outing, as senior Haley Evans captured the individual title, turning in a time of 23:20.72. The defending Peach Belt individual champion edged out Columbus State’s Moneque English by just under five seconds. Senior Kaley Glover followed Evans at fifth overall (23:38.36) and Junior In-Mi Matsunaga at 12th overall with a time of 24:18.67. The Falcons collective time gave them third in meet, behind only Clayton State and Columbus State respectively. Both teams will venture to “The Happiest Place on Earth” to participate in the Disney World Cross Country Classic on Oct. 6. The Falcons then return home to host the Peach Belt Conference Championship on Oct. 20.

Matt Orton

Believe it or not, it’s been ten years since the University of Montevallo welcomed their sixth head coach in the 45-year history of the Men’s Basketball program, Danny Young. Prior to Coach Young taking on the challenge of leading a program that had only one trip to the Peach Belt tournament, Coach Young learned his craft around the nation. From his first coaching job at his alma mater, Grand Canyon University, to Athletic Director and head men’s basketball coach at Salem International University, Coach Young has experienced the game at multiple levels. Recently named the

One-on-one:

Women’s Basketball Head Coach, Cindy Hilbrich BY JORDON D. SEMIEN, Sports Editor

There are many moments that pass in a year: some major and some that go overlooked. Well, here at the University of Montevallo, our Women’s Basketball Head Coach has had a pretty remarkable year. Coach Cindy Hilbrich, a native of Elgin, Ill. is entering her second season as the fifteenth head coach of the women’s basketball program. Last year, she led the Falcons to 11 wins and their second trip to the Peach Belt Tournament. A two-sport athlete at WisconsinWhitewater, Coach Hilbrich’s experience is matched only by her unyielding passion, not only for the game, but for her players. JS: Looking back on your first season as head coach, what was the best lesson you learned last season about yourself and your team? Coach Hilbrich: I think, anytime you come into a new situation, there’s going to be that learning and adjusting period. You always hope that it’s short; some times it takes longer than you really want it to. Everybody is different; they might not always buy into what you want them to do. That was one of my challenges, having to be patient and try to understand that they have had different coaches who have done things differently. I think the biggest thing is just remembering that everybody learns at a different pace, and to just be patient with that. JS: If there is one, what game are you most looking forward to? Coach Hilbrich: The USC Aiken game. I coached there for four years and made a lot of great relationships with coaches, players and people. I’m a little nervous; I think the stakes are a little bit higher, because I feel like I have a lot to prove when I go back. Even the girls—we had a recruit on campus last week and they asked ‘who’s your biggest rival,’ and they said ‘Aiken; got to be Aiken.’ I think it’s a great rivalry, and it’s fun to have games you’re always looking forward to. JS: How much will you rely on your veterans to be your eyes and ears on the court and embrace the leadership role? Coach Hilbrich: I’m depending on them a lot. I look to them to be leaders and to step up and demonstrate, because now they’ve been through it, they know what’s expected, how to perform the drills in our workouts. Vocally, they’re encouraging the newcomers, helping them if they have a problem. I am just excited about the year those four returners will have; three of them are seniors, so it’s important to send them out on a high note. They’ve been great examples off the court too; they’ve been fantastic. I can’t say enough about them. JS: This is your first Head Coaching job. This far into your career, what has been a career-defining lesson?

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012

Coach Hilbrich: I feel like, with my career, I’ve Matt Orton really had to work for what I have. I don’t take it for granted. I love what I do; a lot of people wake up in the morning like ‘Ah, I gotta go to work today,’ but I don’t. We have workouts in the morning, so I know that I need to be awake, because I want them to be awake! I wake up, and I’m excited to come to our workouts and then get back in the office and get things done. But like I said, it’s not just one moment, it’s knowing that I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at. And I’m just going to continue doing that. JS: You graduated with a bachelor’s degree in human resource management and went on to earn your Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. Do you ever use your own experiences as an example for your players to pursue their degrees? Coach Hilbrich: No, but I probably should! Academics are very important to us; we have study hall three times a week. We’re constantly asking them how classes are going. I think there are so many resources at this university; they need to know what they are, and they can’t be afraid to ask for help. There are so many people here at the University that want all of the students, not just the athletes, to be successful; whether it’s working for the newspaper, or the communications department—that puts people in a great position to be successful in the future. JS: Aside from final records, player’s awards, Peach Belt Tournament trips—if there is one thing you would like your players to walk away from this program with, what would it be? Coach Hilbrich: I really want them to walk away knowing that they have no regrets. They’ve put a hundred percent in to it, and they had a great time; I want them to know that if they work hard they can be successful. That’s in anything, whether it’s on the court, off the court, in your job—just like I was talking about with my career. I really want them to be able to take that lesson away, because at the end of the day it’s not the wins and losses and the championships; I hope they take that away—that if they work hard, they can be successful in anything they want.

Gulf South Conference East Division Coach of the Decade for 2000-2010, with an overall record of 257-98 and numerous NCAA DivisionII Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight appearances, it’s not hard to argue that Coach Young’s career is, as the saying goes, “the stuff of legend.” That’s why I can say that it was an absolute honor to sit down with Coach Young and discuss not only the past but the future as well. JS: Looking back on last season (NCAA title game, ran the table in the Peach Belt, multiple player and coaches awards), in your mind, what was the best lesson learned from that long road (about yourself and your team)? Coach: You got to be ready every night. There’s a lot of preparation to get in that game and a fair amount of luck—we couldn’t make a shot that night and they could. JS: This will be your tenth season as head coach of the Falcons; through it all, what have been some of the most memorable moments of your career? Coach: It was the first year. To have that big of a turn around…we had only been to the conference tournament one time and we go there and win it the first time. It was a very memorable moment for me—the excitement of everybody on campus. JS: Out of the gate this year, you’re throwing caution to the wind and taking on Purdue and Ole Miss in exhibition games before taking on a vaunted Peach Belt conference schedule. What convinced you to schedule two D-I schools? In what ways do you believe that the competition in the Peach Belt has improved for this year? What do you tell your guys to get them up and get them ready to go every night? Coach: They’re just ex-

hibition games for them and for us and a chance for the guys to play in big arenas and be on TV. The Peach Belt is just a great league— a lot of good coaches, a lot of good players. It’s just going to be a challenge to win every night. Again, we’re going to have to be ready to play every night. It’s just a daily grind. Staying on top of it, not letting them think too far ahead and just thinking about the next game. JS: The team has lost some valuable experience from last season (DJ, Antoine, DeMarcus, etc.), but return seven great players (Jeff, Drico, Ryan, etc.); Comment on what you think the returning players will bring to the table for this year’s run, the new class of players coming into the program and who you believe could have a break out season. Coach: You’re hopeful that they are your best leaders. That they understand better than anybody what it took for us to get there, and hopefully they’ll bring that in the form of their hard work and their willingness to improve on what they felt our short comings were last year and whatever they felt like why we didn’t win. Tyran Brown was a junior college All-American. JS: In High School, you were a stand-out athlete: Honorable Mention, All American Honorable Mention All-American honors, and you were also nominated to the McDonald’s All-American Basketball Team. How does your time in the game influence how you coach now? Coach: “I do coach a little bit old-school. I played for an NBA Hall of Fame guy, all-star Paul Westphal. He, I thought, was a great player’s coach and influenced me greatly in how I approach everything. It does get a little rough at times, the way the game has

changed. Now everybody’s shooting three pointers, and we play a little bit of old school like that. I try to mix the two together to try to still keep the game exciting for everybody. JS: Aside from wins and losses, NCAA tournament appearances, Peach Belt crowns, national/ regional recognition, player awards and so on…if there is one thing you would want your players to walk away from this season with, a lesson that you would want them to take away from their time in this program, what is it? Coach: Number one thing is: you want them to leave with a degree. That’s the most important thing. They’re coming here to be a student athlete, to get their degree and have a good college experience—which any student athlete or any student can have at the University of Montevallo. There’s a lot going on. It’s a very exciting time right now. As I said to begin the article, Coach Young has spent ten years on this campus. He’s seen kids grow into young adults. Through it all, Coach Young is as steadfast a man as any; he’s always there for his players whenever they need him. There’s a saying often used in sports—“This guy gets it,” the “it” being the reality that there is more to life than sports. Well reader, you can be assured Coach Young “gets it”; and it’s his goal to make sure whoever walks into his office for a chat, whoever suits up on game day to play for him, whoever decides that they want to spend the next fours of their life learning from one of the best coaches around “gets it.” CBS Sports will come to Montevallo February 16 for the Peach Belt game against Clanton State, slated for an 11:00 a.m. tip-off.
