Following a season rife with crippling injuries and other obstacles, Coach Benny Moss and the Seahawks are looking forward to what 2009-10 brings, including a full complement of players to tackle the rigors of NCAA Division I play. UNCW suited up an undermanned, undersized team for much of 2008-09, and the 7-25 overall record and 3-16 Colonial Athletic Association ledger defined a difficult season. But Seahawk faithful should be back in good spirits in 2009-10 since Moss has restocked the team for another run at the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. The Seahawks approach an ambitious schedule with five seniors, six juniors, one sophomore and three freshmen. UNCW returns its top three scorers and leading assist maker for the new campaign, including senior guard Johnny Wolf and junior stalwarts Chad Tomko and Dominque Lacy. Wolf joined the program last season after transferring from Xavier and provided an instant boost. He started 29 games and averaged 13.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists in his first year, scoring 20 or more points five times. Tomko enters his third season as UNCW’s starting playmaker. The Charlotte product led the club in scoring (15.6 ppg) and assists (4.6) Dominique en route to Third-Team All-CAA honors. In two seasons, the 5-foot-11, 165-pound dynamo has started 64-of-65 games and drained 126 triples. Lacy, meanwhile, also is primed for a big year. The 6-foot-7 jumping jack ranked third in scoring (10.4 ppg) and first in rebounding (5.9 rpg) with 16 double figure outings one year ago. He recorded four double-doubles in his second year on the squad. Joining Wolf and Tomko in a versatile backcourt will be seniors Darion Jeralds and Josh Sheets, and juniors Darryl Felder and Ahmad Grant. Jeralds, Sheets and Felder have combined to play in 241 games with 53 starts for the Seahawks, while Grant, a transfer from Olney Central Junior College, poured in 1,084 points in two seasons for the Knights. Unlike last year, Moss has plenty of options in the frontcourt, with size, versatility and athleticism back in the stable. Several players will compete for playing time as the Seahawks revitalize their inside game. Senior swing man Montez Downey returns for his final season in a Seahawk uniform. Downey has opened 26-of-72 games in three seasons and collected 8.5 points and 2.7 boards last year. Three transfers - John Fields, Jeremy Basnight and Trevor Deloach - should compete for playing time with redshirt freshman Will Ohuaregbe up front. Fields played two seasons at East Carolina and brings a shot blocking presence to the team. The 6-9, 230-pounder averaged 9.6 points and 5.4 rebounds for the Pirates in 2007-08, and led Conference USA in blocks during his freshman and sophomore seasons. Basnight and Deloach transfer in from Brunswick Community College and Chipola Junior College, respectively. Basnight averaged 11.0 points and 3.0 rebounds last season and Deloach appeared in 22 games for JUCO powerhouse Chipola. Ohuaregbe, classified as a freshman, could have the most impact of the newcomers. The 6-8 power forward suffered a knee injury early last season and spent most of the year learning the system from the sideline. The London native is back to full speed and should see extended playing time. Rising senior Daniel Mercer was the club’s most improved player last year after making the team as a walk-on and contributing down the stretch. Two freshman recruits, Keith Rendleman and Matt Wilson, will also battle for playing time. Rendleman is a raw talent who was the Chad Southern Piedmont 1A/2A Conference Player-of-the-Year as a junior and senior, while Wilson averaged 12.0 points and 8.0 rebounds at Ravenscroft High School, earning All-Conference honors twice.

Head Coach Benny Moss Benny Moss enters his fourth season at the helm of the UNCW men’s basketball program with high expectations. After orchestrating one of the nation’s best turnarounds in 2007-08, Moss faced numerous injuries and obstacles in his third season on the bench. When it was over, the Seahawks wound up with a 7-25 overall ledger and a 3-15 mark in the CAA. In three seasons with the Seahawks, Moss has fashioned a 34-60 (.362) overall record and a 20-38 (.345) conference scorecard. After enduring a 7-22 debut in 2006-07, UNCW bounced back with a 20-13 record and second-place finish in the CAA in 2007-08. Moss finished second in the league’s Coach-of-the-Year balloting after piloting the Seahawks to their fifth 20-win season. The loss of several key players, however, stalled the rebuilding process in 2008-09, leaving Moss and his staff scrambling. Before being named the seventh head coach in UNCW history on April 20, 2006, the veteran coach assisted with programs at four different institutions. Moss, 39, joined the Seahawks after serving six seasons as the top aide for Bobby Lutz at UNC Charlotte, where the 49ers compiled a 114-69 record during his stay. Following a playing career at Pfeiffer and UNC Charlotte, Moss broke into the coaching profession at Pfeiffer in Misenheimer, N.C., and made stops at Phillips University in Enid, Okla., and Henderson State in Arkadelphia, Ark., before landing in the Queen City. Overall, he served 13 years as an assistant coach and helped four programs compile a 287-121 (.703) record. In his six years with the 49ers, UNCC won two league titles, posted three 20-win seasons and advanced to four NCAA Tournaments. The 49ers went 19-13 in 2005-06 and collected a post-season berth in the National Invitation Tournament. A 1992 graduate of UNCC, Moss lettered two years for the 49ers in 1990 and 1991 before transferring to Pfeiffer, where he played and later coached under Lutz. He was named to the 1990 Sun Belt Conference All-Freshman Team at UNCC, earned Academic All-American honors and was voted to the 1993 Carolinas Conference All-Tournament Team at Pfeiffer. Moss served as an assistant coach at Pfeiffer for three seasons as the Falcons went 71-22. Pfeiffer won a pair of conference titles, advanced to two NAIA National Tournaments and was national runner-up in 1995. In his final year with the Falcons in 1996, Pfeiffer moved to NCAA Division II, went 21-8 and appeared in the Top 25 poll. Moss then spent two years on the staff of Rand Chappell at Phillips and joined Chappell for two seasons at Henderson State. Phillips amassed a 55-12 record, and Henderson State carved out a 47-18 mark with Moss on the bench. Moss earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from UNCC in 1992 and completed his M.B.A. at Pfeiffer in 1994. He and his wife, Dee Dee, have a son, Duane (11), and a daughter, Courtney (7).

Furr, 31, coached two seasons at High Point for Coach Bart Lundy before coming to UNCW. He previously served stints at St. Andrews, Wingate and Pfeiffer. A native of Stanfield, N.C., Furr played four seasons at Wingate, where he earned the Coach’s Award and served as team captain.

UNCW’s Coaches Through The Years Bill Brooks 21 Seasons/1952-72 Record: 256-228

Brooks originated the UNC Wilmington basketball program in 1951-52 at Wil­mington College. He directed UNCW to a 12-4 record in its first campaign in 1951-52, and enjoyed four straight 20-win seasons in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Brooks took the Seahawks to six straight conference championships and two appearances in the National JUCO Tournament.

Mel Gibson 14 Seasons/1973-86 Record: 194-180

Gibson, a former player for the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, carried the Seahawks into the NCAA Division I era. Gibson’s first four Division I teams compiled a record of 73-35, including three consecutive 19win seasons from 1978-80. He recruited all-time leading rebounder Brian Rowsom for the Seahawk program and was named to UNCW Athletic Hall of Fame.

Robert McPherson 4 Seasons/1987-90 Record: 57-60

UNCW’s third cage mentor came from Sam Houston State University and piloted the Seahawks to a pair of championship games in the CAA Tournament. McPherson’s first team lost to Navy and David Robinson, 53-50, in the title clash and his third club in 1988-89 dropped a 78-72 overtime count to George Mason in the championship game.

Kevin Eastman 4 Seasons/1991-94 Record: 59-53

A former college basketball standout, Eastman took over in 199091 and immediately steered it in the right direction. After a pair of fifth place finishes in 1990-91 and 1991-92, the Seahawks won 17 games and finished third in the CAA in 1992-93. In Eastman’s final season in 1993-94, UNCW won two tournament titles, finishing with an 18-10 record.

Jerry Wainwright 8 Seasons/1995-2002 Record: 136-103

In eight seasons with the program, Jerry Wainwright compiled a legacy of success that included four post-season berths, a pair of CAA titles and the program’s first NCAA Tournament victory. Wainwright piloted UNCW to NCAA berths in 2000 and 2002 and NIT appearances in 1998 and 2001. He was named CAA Coach-of-the-Year in both 1998 and 2001. In Wainwright’s final year with the program in 2001-02, the Seahawks captured their second CAA crown, upset fourth-seeded Southern Cal in the NCAA Tournament and collected a then-school record 23 victories.

Brad Brownell 4 Seasons/2003-06 Record: 83-40

After an eight-year stint as an assistant coach on Jerry Wainwright’s staff, Brad Brownell took over the helm of the program in 2002-03, and it didn’t skip a beat. He piloted the Seahawks to a 24-7 record in his first season and added 19 wins in 2004-05 and a 25-8 campaign in 2005-06. Along the way, he led the Seahawks to a pair of CAA titles, two NCAA Tournament berths and was named CAA Coachof-the-Year in 2003 and 2006.

Brian Rowsom - Brett Blizzard - John Goldsberry

Seahawk Trio Honored On CAA's Silver Anniversary All-time greats Brian Rowsom, Brett Blizzard and John Goldsberry have been selected to the Colonial Athletic Association’s Silver Anniversary Team as part of the league’s 25th anniversary celebration. Rowsom, a versatile power forward from Columbia, N.C., was the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder for 15 years and enjoyed several historic battles with Navy star David Robinson. Rowsom was a three-time All-CAA selection, earning Honorable Mention All-America honors in 1987. The crafty Blizzard, who hailed from Tallahassee, Fla., powered the Seahawks to three NCAA Tournament appearances and an NIT berth during his ultra-successful career from 2000-03. He is the only player in the history of the CAA to earn First-Team honors four consecutive years and was selected the circuit’s Player-ofthe-Year in 2002 and 2003. He is also the only player to collect CAA Tournament MVP honors three times and closed out his career with a school-best 2,144 points and remains the CAA’s career 3-point leader with 371 treys. Goldsberry was a two-time AllCAA selection who earned Defensive Player-of-the-Year honors in 2004-05. The Vandalia, Ohio, sparkplug set an NCAA Tournament record by hitting 8-of-8 trifectas against Maryland on March 21, 2003, and ranks among the top 10 in CAA history in points (2,117) and rebounds (1,086). 56 • 2009-10 Seahawk Basketball 56 • 2007-08 UNC Wilmington Basketball

It was also the site of UNCW’s first CAA victory on Jan. 5, 1985, when the Seahawks trimmed George Mason, 66-64. Overall, the Seahawks have enjoyed a favorable home court advantage at Trask. The men’s team has won 71.5 percent of its games in the arena, compiling a 286-114 record in 32 seasons, including 29 winning seasons and 41 sellouts. The 1997-98 team posted the only undefeated home season in the program’s history when it sailed through with an unblemished 9-0 record. The main building of the complex contains four general classrooms, a physical measurements laboratory, a computer lab, five racquetball courts and faculty and administrative offices. The complex also includes the Seahawk Natatorium, a spacious eight-lane, 25X20-yard pool, and the William P. Nixon, Jr., Athletic Annex. The annex, a 4,000-square foot building located adjacent to the coliseum on the south side, houses the main offices for the athletic department, along with the Seahawk Club’s Golden Hawk Room. Eight CAA titles have been decided at the facility. The 1986 women’s bas­ketball championship was staged at UNCW, along with the 1986, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993 and 1995 Swimming and Diving Championships and the 1996 Volleyball Championship. Numerous concert and stage performers also have appeared in the facility, including Bill Cosby, Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, The Oak Ridge Boys, Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Charlie Daniels, Paul Anka, Dionne Warwick, Barbara Mandrell, The Righteous Brothers, The Beach Boys, The Four Tops, Willie Nelson, Gladys Knight, Rich Little, Destiny’s Child, Jessica Simpson, David Cook and Kellie Pickler. The arena was also the site of a Fed Cup tennis semifinal match between the United States and France. Several of the world’s top-ranked women’s professional players convened on Wilmington for the event that was televised on ESPN2.

Colonial Athletic Association The Colonial Athletic Association celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2009-10 with memories of a proud and storied past and visions of an exciting future. Regarded as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences, the CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television Tom Yeager CAA Commissioner homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA currently sponsors 23 sports with the addition of a 12-team football league in 2007 and women’s rowing in 2009. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and The CAA Landscape Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in Institution Enrollment Location 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University Delaware “Blue Hens” 16,000 Newark, Dela. in 1995.

ute to the city’s proud heritage. Historic Wilmington affords visitors the unique opportunity to enjoy a bustling seaport rich in shopping, dining, culture and the arts, while being only minutes away from barrier islands, broad beaches and the intracoastal waterway. The 200-block Historic District highlighting the downtown area opens into a scenic riverfront park that overlooks the USS North Carolina Battleship Memorial. A beautifully restored battleship, the USS North Carolina was considered the greatest sea weapon in the world when commissioned in 1941. During World War II, “The Showboat” earned 15 battlestars and participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Okinawa. A memorial since 1961, the battleship is dedicated to the men and women of all U.S. military services who defended our country during WWII. One of Wilmington’s most unique features is the city’s status as the leading entertainment production center in the Southeast. The city’s evolution into “Hollywood East” began when Dino DeLaurentis shot Stephen King’s “Firestarter” in 1984. One year later, Dino DeLaurentis constructed a studio facility in the Port City and the complex, now owned by EUE/Screen Gems, is the largest production studio east of Hollywood, offering nine sound stages on a 32-acre site near the Wilmington International Airport. Numerous movies, television series and commericals have been filmed in Wilmington. The popular show, “Dawson’s Creek,” was produced in Wilmington and shot frequently on the UNCW campus as well as Warner Bros. hit “One Tree Hill.” A film-friendly community, Wilmington residents have embraced the industry, often appearing as “extras” in movies. It’s not uncommon for celebrities the likes of Sandra Bullock, Nick Nolte, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise and Dennis Hopper to be seen dining at a restaurant, shopping at the mall or just simply walking along the shore. Wrightsville Beach, just minutes away from Wilmington’s downtown area, is a year-round island resort. Wide, uncrowded beaches, full service marinas and a variety of accommodations are complemented by excellent seafood restaurants, specialty shops and exciting nightlife.
