A Q U I N A S

C O L L E G E


s e a s o n o v e r v iew Every race has a starting point and, of course, the finish line. As the contenders line up to run the race for a 2010-11 regular season WHAC title, Aquinas’ starting position is in the middle of the pack. With that in mind, Saints coach Dave Hammer intends to remind his team of one important point: It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish the race that counts. And with a roster that includes only one returning senior and only a couple of other players with significant game experience, Hammer admits that measuring the progress of this year’s team will be on a day-to-day basis. Almost half of the 16-man roster for the Saints consists of players who are entering their first year of college, and this is the reality that they face: High School College Practices 60 120 Regular Season Games 20 30 Conference Tournament 0 3 Post-Season Tournament 8 5 Total Days of Competition 88 158

time for each player coming in to college to raise his level of consistency and effort that are necessary in the college game,” Hammer continued. “With rebounding, for example, just being between your man and the rim isn’t enough — a player has to rely on intensity and strength to aggressively pursue the ball.” To facilitate this type of development in his players, Hammer stressed that the coaching staff will have to demonstrate patience while teaching the concepts and strategies that have resulted in success in recent years. “It’s important that we put a competitive spirit into every practice,” Hammer says. Two factors that could make this season a somewhat easier transition for Hammer’s young charges include a schedule that lists 17 home contests, along with several “road” games that are played in Grand Rapids. “A younger team benefits from playing in familiar surroundings,” Hammer noted. Additionally, the “surroundings” on the AQ campus just happen to be a brand new basketball arena, the Sturrus Sports & Fitness Center, which officially opened in time for the Saints’ exhibition game against Ferris State University on Oct. 28. The new facility is a noteworthy improvement in many ways — a new court to compete on, a nice locker room, a larger training and rehab room, an expansive weight room and space for team meetings and coaches’ offices. “Getting through the month of January with the right mental attitude that we are going to keep improving, that we are a work in progress, will be the key,” Hammer said. “These players will be tested — particularly the four freshmen who will play regularly throughout the season; and it’s a team that on any given night could look good, or could look just so-so or even bad. So we need the players to trust in themselves and in the coaches; and work hard and make improvement every time they step on the floor.”

Clearly, it’s plain to see why the teams with the most experienced players — the most mentally and physically mature players — are favored to win championships. Heading into this year, AQ is minus a returning double-digit scorer or 7-plusper-game rebounder. With only one senior in the starting line-up (Matt Weiss), and another starter with college experience but who missed most of last season due to a knee injury (Damacious White), Hammer is counting on several underclassmen to make major contributions. In order to accomplish that, Hammer lists three goals that each player will be asked to focus on: • Every player needs to learn how to compete every day — on every possession — in practice, which leads to becoming more competitive as a team in games; • Individually, each must learn what it means to be a good college teammate, which involves developing good chemistry and fitting into roles that may be different than what was expected in high school; • Every player must commit themselves to defense and rebounding, an adjustment that Hammer asserts typically takes two years at the college level. “Being a good college teammate isn’t only about what happens on the court,” Hammer says. “It’s also about what goes on in the locker room, in the residence halls, and in class.” Essentially, it involves everything a player must do well to contribute to the overall success of the program, Hammer said. “It also takes

“Getting through the month of January with the right mental attitude that we are going to keep improving, that we are a work in progress, will be the key.”

• Bryan Bollin, #24, 6’6, 215, Fr, Brighton/Brighton • Zach Eddy, #32, 6’6, 240, So, Stevensville/Lakeshore • Jon Hornak, #33, 6’5, 220, Fr, Muskegon/Muskegon Catholic Central • Eric Johnson, #44, 6’7, 250, Sr, Southfield/Marygrove College • Peter Sabiiti, #42, 6’4, 236, Fr, Augusta (Ga.)/Cross Creek • Jake Shockey, #14, 6’4, 201, Jr, Orion/Orchard Lake St. Mary • Matt Weiss, #50, 6’7, 222, Sr, Alto/Caledonia

“The last half of last season is when Matt Weiss really developed into a solid post player,” Hammer says. “It’s all the result of just pure hard work — listening, watching, and being mentored his first two years by Pedja Lazic. This was actually Matt’s first summer where he didn’t have an injury that delayed his progress. “Matt is our best screener, and he’s gotten very patient when he catches the ball and makes a move in the post. We’re hoping

s e a s o n o v e r v iew Jon Hornack is another player who red-shirted as a freshman because, Hammer says, “we needed him to learn how to compete as a college player. He is showing signs of getting better playing around the rim, but he is still a work in progress as far as getting his playing weight up to the 240 mark. Jon’s a great teammate; everyone likes Jon because he has a great personality. We trust in his work ethic and dedication to improving his strength and skills that will enable him to become the type of player who can contribute on the court.” Bryan Bollin is expected to earn a spot in the rotation that will enable him to learn how to compete against other college players. “He’s very intelligent as a player — much of the time he’s in position, but he still needs to be able to finish once he’s there. Once he learns it’s alright to bang people, it’s alright to jump over people, it’s alright to knock people down, then he’s just going to absolutely flourish and develop at a faster pace,” Hammer says. “He’s a natural 15-18 foot shooter who also can take the ball to the basket.” Freshman forward Peter Sabiiti had only played a few years of organized basketball before coming to college, so he’s still learning what it takes to be successful within a system of play. “To his credit, he’s working everyday on his footwork and shooting touch,” Hammer says, adding, “I like that he’s not bothered by contact, and uses fakes to his advantage.”

that Matt can develop into a 10-to-12-points-per-game scorer for us, but if not, he is a great team player. Matt just absolutely exemplifies what is a good team player, what he’ll do for the program and for his teammates. You cannot find a better person than Matt, who will always put the program above himself.” A transfer from Marygrove College, senior Eric Johnson choose Aquinas for his remaining year of college basketball eligibility. “Eric is an extremely strong player who at 6’7 and 250 pounds has good hands and a good touch,” Hammer says. “We’re very happy that we have him because he will give us a good low post presence once we get him in better physical condition.” Hammer noted that Jake Shockey will play both inside and at times on the perimeter this season. “Jake brings a tremendous amount of energy to the floor, and plays with a lot of heart. He loves the game, and moving him out to the perimeter gives him a little more space to get offensive rebounds.” Of the sophomores, Hammer points to Zac Eddy as the only second-year player who comes back with any game experience, since the other sophomores in the program red-shirted last year. “Zac really worked hard over the summer on his conditioning, and you can really see how it has paid off in how he runs the floor, in his endurance, and in his ability to take the ball strong to the basket. This year we’re planning to move him to power forward because he has a nice touch out to 15 feet and we want to be able to take advantage of that.”

SHOOTING GUARDS

• Kevin Grant, #22, 6’4, 195, Fr, Grand Rapids/Ottawa Hills • Tim Jensen, #34, 6’6, 205, Fr, Manistee/Manistee • Brett Pfahler, #3, 6’2, 174, So, Coopersville/Coopersville • A.J. Schmidt, #21, 6’1, 185, Jr, Grand Rapids/Kenowa Hills • Sandy Underwood, #40, 6’5, 193, Fr, Brent (Ala.)/Bibb County • Damacious White, #5, 6’0, 197, Jr, Oak Park/Berkley

Matt Weiss

“Damacious White was off to a real good start his sophomore year until he reinjured the same knee that he had in high school during football season; and that occurred in the first two minutes of our first WHAC game in January,” Hammer says. “With Damacious in the line up, we’d have likely gone to the national tournament; but without him, we fell short of that goal. So his experience, his strength and quickness, and his leadership on the court will be a welcome return for our team.” A jump shooter, A.J. Schmidt’s specialty is hitting the 3-pointer. “He won a very important game for us last year at Davenport in the semi-finals by making two big free throws in the last 14 seconds of the game,” Hammer says. “Now that he’s back from injury, we expect A.J. to give us meaningful contributions as a reserve.” There were two reasons why Hammer red-shirted Brett Pfahler: one, he needed to improve his strength, and second, he needed to play against college-age athletes on a daily basis. And, he took total advantage of his red-shirt year, adding 13 pounds to his body. “He’s a very good perimeter shooter and excellent free throw shooter,” Hammer says. “We know when Brett’s on 2010-11 SAINTS BASKETBALL

s e a s o n o v e r v iew POINT GUARDS

• Jason Gust, #2, 5’8, 142, Fr, Cedar Springs/Cedar Springs • Jamell Hatchett, #11, 5’11, 177, Jr, Grand Rapids/East Kentwood • Austin McKay, #10, 5’11, 178, Fr, Lansing/Waverly

“Last year was a very good learning experience for Jamell Hatchett; he had the opportunity to learn how we want the game played. He’s an athletic guard who we are converting into a point guard, and it’s so good to see that he’s taking on this responsibility,” Hammer says. “I really feel that before the end of the year he’s going to be in total command of what we want and need him to do.” Hammer describes Jason Gust, at 5’8 and 140 pounds, as a real gutty player who loves playing and studying the game. “I can see Jason one day becoming an excellent college basketball coach. From ‘day one,’ Jason spoke to the seniors just like he would to other kids his age, which is one of the things I like about him,” Hammer says. “He’s not taking a back seat to anyone; I mean, he played on his high school varsity team since his freshman year and has played on AAU teams against some very good players. He’s another guy who also can shoot the basketball — if teams leave him open, he’s going to bury it. The stronger he gets physically, the more he’ll be in a position to help this program down the road.” Austin McKay adds depth for the Saints at the point position. “He’s a quiet guy who is learning what it takes to play the point in college,” Hammer says. “As he progresses and learns how to play with more aggressiveness, we think he could help us because you can never have enough guys who can handle the ball against pressure defenses.”

Damacious White the court, opponents will have to guard him and won’t be able to double the post off him.” Hammer noted that Sandy Underwood is the most athletic player in his class and has shown the most promise. “He has the ability to run the floor well, can shoot the basketball as well as get to the rim off the dribble,” Hammer says. “Sandy has been progressing very nicely in the early part of the season, and if he continues to make strides, by January he has a chance of bringing this program up a level by himself. He has all the intangibles of what goes into being a good basketball player: length, speed, quickness, a good touch around the basket, and he is a very good free throw shooter. So, we’re expecting a lot from him as a freshman, which truthfully at times you don’t want to have to do that ... but this is a freshman who will accept that challenge.” Tim Jensen has length at 6’6 who by the end of his career will be a three-position player, and Hammer said he likes having that versatility in a player. “Tim is a much better athlete than we had thought when we were recruiting him, and that type of athletic ability means he can guard other players at two or three other spots because of his length and his footwork. He knows he’s in the game rotation, and I think for him it’s just a matter of developing more confidence because he’s going to be out there every game, playing with and against veteran players.” Kevin Grant is a local recruit for AQ who is moving from a high school post position to the wing in college. “The one area that Kevin’s had to work at being more comfortable is with his ball handling; he can shoot, but he can’t just rely on his jump shot to be effective at the college level,” Hammer says. “He’s long, athletic and comes from a great family who really supports him.” 2010-11 SAINTS BASKETBALL

D a v e h a mm e r With more than 28 years of basketball and athletics leadership experience under his belt, Hammer is hardly a stranger to building winning programs. He served as athletic director at Coldwater High School (Mich.), where he also coached the boy’s basketball team from 1997 through 2002. His career highlights at Coldwater include a Class B semi-final berth in 1999 and a Class B Coach of the Year award in 1999. During his five years as basketball coach, Hammer led the Cardinals to a 66-45 record, including school records of 24 victories and a winning streak of 18 games in 1999. Before heading north to Coldwater, Hammer was an assistant coach at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, from 1989 through 1993. Working with Mustangs head coach John Shumate, Hammer helped transform the team from the league cellar to the Southwest Conference championship and an NCAA Tournament berth in 1993, finishing 20-8 overall and going 12-2 in the conference.

Hammer’s college coaching experience began at Delta College (Mich.) as an assistant from 1978 to 1980. He left for a year to assume head coaching duties at Bridgeport High School (Mich.). Hammer, however, returned to Delta College in 1981 as head coach. He tallied a 57-24 record during his three years and led the Pioneers to an Eastern Conference Championship in 1982. He left in 1984 to become an assistant at the University of Michigan. During his four years in Ann Arbor, Hammer helped the Wolverines earn four NCAA tournament berths and two Big Ten Championships with an overall 100-27 record. Hammer also served as an assistant coach at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, from 1988 to 1989. Hammer graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science in 1970, and went on to earn his master’s in educational administration at CMU in 1976. His daughter, Amy, is an educator at Caro High School; his son, DJ, is a senior at Oswego State in New York.
