Coach James on Richardson: “Chris is a prototypical combo guard. He can play the point and get others involved or he can play the ‘two’ and create offense for himself. Anytime you have a guard who can play both spots it makes him a lot tougher to defend. He has a work ethic that is second to none. He loves to be in the gym and works for hours on end. This will make him a great player in the Ohio Valley Conference.”

COACHING BIOS

Head Coach • Second Season Graceland, 2000 Jason James enters his second season at the helm of The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball program. After spending the last seven seasons as an assistant coach at The University of Tennessee at Martin, including the role of associate head coach during the 2008-09 Ohio Valley Conference championship season, James was named the program’s eighth head coach on June 5, 2009. James, a native of St. Louis, Mo., began 2009-10 as the nation’s second-youngest NCAA Division-I men’s basketball head coach, but his experience in the UT Martin program has prepared James for the challenge. “This has always been my goal, ever since I was 10,” the 32-year-old James said. “My dad introduced me to basketball and he always coached me and my brothers. He had such a joy in coaching that he made me want to coach and influence young men just like he did.” James posted several positives during his debut season as bench leader at UT Martin in 2009-10 against arguably one of the toughest schedules in the history of the program. In his ratings for tthe first week of December, noted college basketball journalist Ken Pomeroy rranked the Skyhawks as having the fourth-toughest non-conference strength of sschedule in NCAA Division-I. Another respected hoops journalist in Jeff Sagarin of USA Today consistently listed the Skyhawks as having one of the toughest o sschedules in the nation throughout the entire season. In fact, when the brackets were released for each of the four postseason basketball tournaments, James saw w sseveral familiar names. That’s because the Skyhawks played nine games against ssix postseason teams in 2009-10. Florida State, Missouri and Murray State each made the NCAA Tournament, while Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State each m aaccepted invitations to the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and Missouri State was part of the 16-team CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT). S Despite the quality of opponents, the Skyhawks made no excuses and battled down to the wire in each and every game before ending the year with a b 44-25 slate. Seven of the team’s losses were by 10 points or less as the Skyhawks battled injuries and was forced to play players out of position. As a result, James b sshuffled 15 different starting-five combinations throughout the season, as all 12 aactive UT Martin players started at least three games. A bit of history occured in late December, as the Skyhawks earned backtto-back Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week accolades for just the second ttime in school history. Off the court, James’ players and staff went the extra mile to benefit the local ccommunity. The basketball team organized a team for the West Weakley County Relay for Life last June, raising nearly $2,000 in conjunction with the over $100,000 R ttotal effort. The Skyhawks also fought the ongoing battle with cancer through the t Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers event at home against Murray State on o Jan. 30 in a nationally-televised game on ESPN-U. In that collaboration, fans

made donations for each three-pointer the team made in the month of January. Under James, the Skyhawks have also been involved in the “Character Counts” program in the Weakley County schools, the D.A.R.E program, and the Boys and Girls clubs in Union City. Over his tenure at UT Martin as an assistant coach, James was directly responsible in the recent resurgance of the Skyhawk program over the last several seasons. Since his first season on the Skyhawk bench in 2002, James recruited two of UT Martin’s all-time great Division-I players in Jared Newson and Lester Hudson. Newson ranks fourth in all-time program history in points scored after playing just three seasons with the Skyhawks. Newson ranks in the top-10 in seven different all-time career UT Martin categories, including points (1,347, fourth), field goals made (452, fifth), field goals attempted (1,016, fifth), free throws made (378, second), free throws attempted (526, first), rebounds (535, seventh), blocks (43, 10th) and steals (128, seventh). After he exhausted his eligibility at UT Martin, Newson attended training camp with the Dallas Mavericks before becoming an overseas fan favorite for his acrobatic slam-dunks in Germany. In Hudson, James found a diamond in the rough that became one of the best all-around players in the NCAA and eventually would be chosen by the Boston Celtics in the 2009 NBA Draft. In Hudson’s collegiate debut, he torched eventual national runner-up Memphis for 35 points, but the legend of Hudson was just getting started. Just eight days later, Hudson grabbed national headlines when he became the first-ever NCAA Division-I men’s basketball player to record a quadruple-double (25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals) vs. Central Baptist on Nov. 13, 2007. Later that season, Hudson became the first-ever UT Martin player to be named an All-American since the program joined the Division-I ranks in 1992. That season, James helped guide the Skyhawks to a school-record for OVC wins in one season (11), as UT Martin won the OVC regular season championship for the first time ever. The Skyhawks also hosted and won a first-round OVC Tournament game for the first time in UT Martin history, before falling to eventualtournament champion Austin Peay by a single point (78-77). In that 2008-2009 season the Skyhawks broke or tied 12 team and individual game/season records, including most wins in a single season (22), and longest winning streak (11 games from Jan. 10 through Feb. 18). After winning its first-ever OVC regular-season championship, the Skyhawks earned a trip to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT), the first postseason appearance for a UT Martin team in its brief Division-I history. In that game, the Skyhawks hung tough with SEC member Auburn on Auburn’s home floor before falling 87-82. James’ coaching philosophy is simple: play the game the right way and the rest will fall into place. “I tell the guys all the time ‘performance counts’,” James said. “Everybody is judged on their performance, rather that’s fair or not. If we can show up and perform night in and night out, the wins and losses will take care of themselves. Our program is going to compete, fight, scratch and claw for 40 minutes.” Off the court, James is an intense scholar of the game. He spends countless hours watching tape, studying other coaches and reading books about all phases of the game of basketball. James came to UT Martin from Forest Park Community College in St. Louis, Mo., where he was an assistant men’s basketball coach for two years. The team finished second in the region James’ first year, and many FPCC players during James’ tenure went on to play Division I and Division II basketball. Before his stint at Forest Park, James taught physical education and health for one year at Ritenour Middle School in St. Louis, while also coaching a high school all-star team from the state of Michigan that placed third out of 54 teams at the USA Junior Nationals. James earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education and health with a coaching endorsement from Graceland University in Lamoni, Iowa in 2000. For two seasons he served as captain of the Graceland University basketball team. He was voted Graceland Freshman Basketball Player of the Year for the 1996-97 season and was named the team’s MVP during the 1999-2000 season. Later in the fall of 2010, James will be enshrined in the fourth class of the Parkway Alumni Association Hall of Fame, as he will be recognized for his contributions since graduating from Parkway West High School in St. Louis in 1996. James recently married the former Dani Walker of Oxford, Miss. in May 2010 and the couple is expecting their first child in February 2011.


Assistant Coach • Second Season Marshall, 2001 Cornelius Jackson begins his second season as an assistant coach at UT Martin and first as recruiting coordinator for the Skyhawks. Prior to joining the Skyhawks, he was an assistant coach at West Virginia State University since 2003. Jackson was responsible for all recruiting and scheduling at West Virginia State. He also coordinated the video film exchange, scouted opponents and helped develop game plans. He developed specialized workouts for individual skill instruction for both post and perimeter players and coordinated all itineraries and travel arrangements for unofficial and official visits. West Virginia State finished 2008-09 with a 24-6 record. The team won the West Virginia Interscholastic Athletic Conference (WVIAC) championship for the fourth time in six years. West Virginia State compiled a 148-43 worksheet with Jackson as an assistant coach since 2003. Jackson signed with the University of Tennessee out of high school and after being a part-time starter for the Vols as a freshman, he transferred to Marshall University where he enjoyed an outstanding collegiate career. Jackson was Marshall’s starting point guard and team captain for three years. He was also the only Herd player to start every game during his career. He led the Mid-American Conference in assists as a junior and senior. After graduation, Jackson was drafted by the Roanoke Dazzle of the National Basketball Development League (NBDL). He also played professionally in Germany and Austria. Jackson has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and he and Tiffany Allen are the proud parents of daughters Valessa and Tiarra.

Assistant Coach • First Season West Georgia, 2007 Antwuan Holloway has joined the Skyhawk program for his first season as an assistant coach. “We’re excited about Antwuan as part of our Skyhawk family,” James said. “He brings passion and a love for the game and his work ethic is second to none. He has a bright future in this profession.” Holloway was most recently an assistant coach at Division-II Nyack College in Nyack, NY for two seasons under head coach Ted Quinn. At Nyack, his duties included recruiting, conducting individual workouts, on-court coaching and breakdown sessions with players, advance scouting of opponents, scheduling future opponents, implementing a strength and conditioning plan for the team, as well as other duties. “I am extremely excited to join head coach Jason James and his staff,” Holloway said. “This is an exciting group of talented coaches and I have been welcomed since Day One. This is an exciting brand of basketball at the NCAA Division-I level in the Ohio Valley Conference.” In Holloway’s first season at Nyack, the Warriors made it to the NCCAA tournament championship game, finishing as 2009 national runner-up. He coached two all-conference players in Stedford McLeod and Valiant Jones. Before joining the Nyack program, Holloway spent one season as an assistant coach at NAIA Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky. for head coach Paul Peck. He helped the Blue Raider program to a national top 25 ranking while competing in the Mid-South Conference, known as one of the most competitive NAIA conferences in the country. In a year of many special accomplishments, Holloway’s Lindsey Wilson squad defeated No. 1 ranked Mountain State University. In addition to his duties as an assistant coach, Holloway also served as the head coach for the junior varsity squad at Lindsey Wilson. His team won six of its first eight games before finishing the season with an 8-6 record.

Serving under former Ole Miss head coach Ed Murphy, he helped the team compile a 56-32 record in his three years, including a 23-7 season in 2004-05. During that season, the Braves were ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation and earned a NCAA Tournament berth while Holloway coached all-conference players Darnell Miller and Majestic Mapp. Holloway has worked several summer basketball camps, including camps run by Chattanooga head coach John Shulman and Siena head coach Mitch Buonaguro, and also served as the East Cobb YMCA head counselor/sports coordinator in the summer of 2006.

He served as the official statistician at the 2010 Ohio Valley Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournament in Nashville, where he was solely responsible for all stats from the two-day, six-game semifinals and championship games. The previous year, he was a media relations assistant at the NCAA men’s basketball South Regional tournament in Memphis, arranging press conferences and post-game interviews in the Sweet 16/Elite 8 rounds. He also served as official scorer of the 2008 Major/60 12 Year Old Cal Ripken World Series in Martin from Aug. 7-14, 2008, overseeing the four-day, 10-team national Babe Ruth Little League tournament. A native of Benton, Ky., Rickman came to UT Martin from Murray State, where he graduated with a degree in journalism and a minor in recreation in May 2008. He worked part-time as a student worker in the Athletics Media Relations office for four years and was a co-contributor to Murray State’s 2007 football media guide, which was named by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) as the Best in the Nation for Football Bowl Subdivision universities.

2010-11 PREVIEW

PLAYERS/STAFF

SEASON PREVIEW As the great Mark Twain once said, “Age is an issue of mind over matter; if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” That theme runs rampant throughout The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball program in 2010-11. The Skyhawks enter the season with eight newcomers - six of which are true freshmen. The Skyhawks have had six or more freshmen on their roster just five times in the Ohio Valley Conference/Division-I era (1992-present), and this year marks just the second time in the last 13 years that the Skyhawks will enter the season with six or more freshmen on the roster. The exuberance of youth does not stop with the players on the floor though. At the beginning of the 2009-10 season, UT Martin head coach Jason James was the nation’s second-youngest Division I head coach. With one change in the coaching staff this offseason, the whole staff is believed to be the youngest four-man staff in Division-I heading into 2010-11. James (33), assistant coaches Cornelius Jackson (32), Dylan Dudley (28) and Antwuan Holloway (25) have a combined age of 118 heading into the season. With that said, James expects better results from the 2010-11 Skyhawks, who enter the season looking a lot different than the 4-25 team that took the floor last season. “We are different from last year because we are tougher, we shoot the ball better and our collective feel for how to play the game is better,” James said. “In the past we haven’t been very deep - we might stay with a sixto-seven man rotation. But this year’s team is different in that sense because we can run

out 10 or 11 guys who can play immediately and that depth will be very effective for us down the stretch.” Although the five returnees combined to tally 65 of their 86 career starts in 2009-10, it is no secret that in order for UT Martin to return to the top of the OVC standings, the youth of the Skyhawks will no doubt play a big factor. “We have so many young guys and new players,” James said. “But they have all bought in and they understand what we are trying to get out of them. Hopefully that will translate into some success this year.” No more position on the floor is more evident of the need for an impact newcomer than at the point guard slot. Freshmen Chris Richardon and Omari Minor will battle it out for the starting job. Both players come to UT Martin from prestigious basketball programs, a trait that James says that toughness should help acclimate them to the college game quickly. “Omari is a legit floor general,” James said. “He has a great general feel for the game and he understands how to play the game. Chris’ toughness separates him from people his size. He has a physical body and he is just a tough guy.” Senior Reuben “Ookie” Clayton provides the most Division-I experience on the roster from the shooting guard position. Clayton has shown flashes of being an impact offensive player in his two seasons at UT Martin, as he has produced 21 double-figure scoring games while alternating between the starting lineup and providing instant offense off the bench. “We are expecting big things out of Ookie,” J James said. “This will b his third be y year in our program and the s e c o n d y year in our s system and h he knows w what we e expect. He h has had a great preseason and he has continued to w work hard.” A pair of (From left) Assistant coach Dylan Dudley, head coach Jason James, S Smith’s will assistant coach Antwuan Holloway and assistant coach Cornelius also eat up Jackson are believed to be the youngest coaching staff in all of Division-I. the majority

of the minutes at the two-guard slot, as Dane Smith brings two years of junior college experience and Terence Smith joins the program out of Russellville High School in Alabama. Dane was a two-year starter at Kilgore College in Texas and Terence broke his school’s all-time scoring record. Both offer James an ingredient of versatility. “Dane is the jack of all trades,” James said. “The thing he will help with the most is that he has played at a high level at junior college and his experience will help us get over the hump through some tough times.” “Terence is as talented as anybody we have,” James said. “He is very athletic and he might slide over to run the point for us some as well. He has a good handle and he can do a number of different things on the floor.” After a 2009-10 breakout season, senior forward Benzor Simmons enters the season just 265 points shy of becoming the 15th player in UT Martin’s 59-year basketball history to eclipse the 1,000 point mark. Simmons – who led the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring for most of the first two months of last season – would need to average 8.6 points per contest to reach 1,000 points in his career. “Benzor’s been around the block,” James said. “He has done a great job in the preseason keeping his body weight where it needs to be and making a bunch of shots. His leadership has also been great and he is the staple of our program.” Also on the wing will be a pair of talented freshmen in Mike Liabo and Troy King. Both offer length (both are 6-6) and the ability to put the ball in the basket in numerous forms for the Skyhawks. Liabo prepped at Brehm Academy in Carbondale, Ill., while King joins the program from Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, a program that produced 11 Division-I signees. “Mike and Troy are very similar,” James said. “They can both shoot the ball and offer good rebounding skills from the wing spot. Troy is a little thicker and stronger and he uses a ball fake to get to his jumpshot spots. Mike is more of a scorer who can create points off transition, around the arc and at the free throw line. I like the dimension that they bring by stretching the defense with their jumpshots.” In the post, the Skyhawks boast three returning players in seniors Andres Irarrazabal and Daron Hood in addition to sophomore Ron Spencer. Freshman Pierre Mopo will also add some beef to a frontcourt that has the makings to be one of the most underrated units on the team. Irarrazabal took advantage of some late-

season playing time in 2009-10 and became a reliable scoring option for UT Martin. Irarrazabal also brings a needed toughness on the defensive glass, as he led the team in rebounding three times during his extending playing time. “Andres is the crafty veteran that we have relied on in the past and we will rely on him again this year from a leadership standpoint,” James said. “He knows this is his last go-round and it shows in his work ethic and intensity every day.” With Hood, the talent has been evident since his first year in the Skyhawk program in 2006-07. It has just been a matter of staying healthy. In three years, he has played in only 37 games but he was healthy enough to start in three consecutive OVC games last season. “Daron is the grandfather of the team, he has been around so long,” James said. “He is one of the guys that has bought in most with what we are doing, he just needs to stay healthy and get on the floor. He will play some ‘4’ and ‘5’ for us and fill in where we need him to.” Spencer overcame an early-season injury to become one of UT Martin’s best interior players last year. Despite playing only 18 games, he led the team in rebounding five times, while swatting at least one blocked shot in 10 games. He was no slouch on the offensive end as well, as he scored in all but one game and tallied his first double-double at Eastern Kentucky (12 points, 11 rebounds)

year with a trio of quality opponents who made runs in the NCAA Tournament last March. The Skyhawks host defending OVC champion Murray State - who won 31 games and came three points shy of beating national runner-up Butler in the round of 32 last season - takes place on Dec. 21 in the Elam Center. Six days later, UT Martin heads to Columbus, Ohio on Dec. 27 to square off against Big Ten powerhouse Ohio State, who went 29-8 and advanced to the Sweet 16. The team who eliminated the Buckeyes - the Tennessee Volunteers - appear next on the schedule on Dec. 29, fresh off their 28-9 campaign and Elite Eight appearance. This will be the fourth time in program history the Skyhawks will visit the Volunteers in Thompson-Boling Arena. The OVC slate picks back up with a visit to Southeast Missouri on Jan. 3. The Skyhawks host Tennessee State (Jan. 8) and Austin Peay (Jan. 10) before road contests at Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State on Jan. 13 and 15, respectively. Back-to-back home games against Southeast Missouri and Eastern Illinois take place before UT Martin plays four road games in a row: at future OVC member SIU Edwardsville (Jan. 24); at Murray State (Jan. 29); at Austin Peay (Feb. 3); and at Tennessee State (Feb. 5). The Skyhawks then will close out the season with five of six games at the Elam Center. Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech visit on Feb. 10 and 12 before a Feb. 15 showdown on the road at Eastern Illinois. UT Martin will once again take part in the ESPN BracketBusters series, as they will host an opponent on Feb. 19. The regular season closes at home against Eastern Kentucky (Feb. 24) and Morehead State (Feb. 26), before the new OVC Tournament format goes into effect. Beginning this year, all tournament games will take place at the renovated Municipal Auditorium in Nashville.

PLAYERS/STAFF

With a season like his junior campaign, Benzor Simmons is primed to join the UT Martin 1,000 Point Club.

i the second-to-last game of the season. in “Ron has gotten a lot better this p preseason,” James said. “We have noticed a h huge jump on his floor activity - he can score a around the basket or step out and make a 1 15-foot jumper. He has taken it upon himself t make himself a better player and he is to f focused on having a solid season.” A prototypical bruiser in the paint, Mopo w just the type of player that James was was t targeting on the recruiting trail. Mopo was o of the state of Mississippi’s nominees for one t McDonald’s All-American game after a the p prep career at Piney Woods High School. “Pierre is the quintessential defender and r rebounder-type player that we will have t rely on every game,” James said. “He’s to g ing better offensively as he understands gett h role in the offense but he plays hard, his t tough, defends and rebounds and those are t things we sorely missed last year.” After playing nine games against six t teams who made a postseason tournament i 2009-10, the Skyhawks schedule is once in again one of the toughest in program history. “It’s important to see where we are and where we need to go to get better,” James said. “We are very excited about our nonconference schedule. These early games will help our young team gain some much needed experience before we hit conference play. “We know we’re in a tough league and we will have to be ready to play every day.” Home dates against MacMurray College, Centenary of the Summit League and Lipscomb (17-13 last year while competing in the Atlantic Sun Conference) highlight November’s home slate. In between the Centenary and Lipscomb matchups, the Skyhawks will travel to take on LSU of the Southeastern Conference, Northwestern State of the Southland Conference and the cream of the crop in Conference-USA in Memphis, who has won 20 games in every season since 2000. UT Martin and Memphis will square off for the fifth time this decade, with the Skyhawks’ last visit to Bluff City occurring in 2007. After a brutal OVC road trip to Death Valley opens up the December portion of the schedule, UT Martin will take on the Central Arkansas Bears of the Southland Conference for the fourth straight season. Following that, the Skyhawks head to Fort Wayne, Ind. to take on IPFW, who put together a winning season (16-15) last year while competing in the Summit League. The Skyhawks will take eight days off before resuming play at home against William Woods College, an NAIA opponent out of Fulton, Mo. UT Martin rounds out the 2010 calendar

SEASON RECAP The University of Tennessee at Martin battled their way through one of the toughest schedules in the history of the program in 2009-10, posting a 4-25 record in head coach Jason James’ first season at the helm. In his ratings for the first week of December, noted college basketball journalist Ken Pomeroy ranked the Skyhawks as having the fourthtoughest non-conference strength of schedule in NCAA Division-I. Another respected hoops journalist in Jeff Sagarin of USA Today consistently listed the Skyhawks as having one of the toughest schedules in the nation throughout the entire season. In fact, when the brackets were released for each of the four postseason basketball tournaments, James saw several familiar names. That’s because the Skyhawks played nine games against six postseason teams in 2009-10. Florida State,

Missouri and Murray State each made the NCAA Tournament, while Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State each accepted invitations to the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and Missouri State was part of the 16team CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT). The Skyhawks opened the season with losses at perennial mid-major powerhouse Southern Illinois and defending Elite Eight member Missouri. The Missouri game was a sign of things to come from Benzor Simmons, who announced his presence with a 30 point, 10 rebound performance - both career-highs. UT Martin then notched its first win of the season on Nov. 20 - a 79-67 win over Harris-Stowe. After a setback at Arkansas State, the Skyhawks were in for an early OVC battle in Morehead State and Eastern Kentucky - two teams who would win 20 games and finish amongst the OVC’s elite. th The Skyhawks T held their own, h sstaying within sstriking distance throughout both th games before g ffalling by eight aand 11 points, rrespectively. A rough where sstretch the Skyhawks th played three of p ffour games on the road loomed, th with UT Martin w ffacing stiff nonconference competition Missouri in State, Central S Arkansas, Evansville and E Florida State.

A 71-59 win over Westminster on Dec. 30 closed out the 2009 calendar year. A bit of history occured in late December, as the Skyhawks earned back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week accolades for just the second time in school history. The new year opened with a threegame road stretch at Murray State, Austin Peay and Tennessee State. Against Austin Peay on Jan. 7, the Skyhawks gave the hosts all it wanted on its own home floor before a late run gave the Governors a 90-72 win. UT Martin returned home for the first time in two weeks to face OVC foes Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State, battling for 40 minutes in each game, but fell 76-63 to Tennessee Tech and 73-63 to Jacksonville State.

UT Martin then suffered a 77-45 loss to Murray State - who won the OVC championship and advanced to the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament before falling to national runner-up Butler. In that game, the Skyhawks failed to place a player in double-figure scoring - the first time in a stretch of 277 games that had happened (the last time was Dec. 18, 2000 against Butler).

SKYHAWKS FALL 91-63 AT SOUTHERN ILLINOIS IN SEASON-OPENER

UTM FALLS AT MIZZOU DESPITE CAREER NIGHT FROM SIMMONS

JAMES EARNS FIRST CAREER WIN IN 2010-11 HOME OPENER

Junior forward Benzor Simmons earned his first career double-double by going off for 30 points and 10 rebounds - both career-highs - to help The University of Tennessee at Martin outscore Missouri in the second half, but the Skyhawks valiant effort fell short at Mizzou Arena, 83-68.

The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball team opened the home portion of its 2009-10 season with a 79-67 victory over visiting Harris Stowe State University.

Junior guard Reuben Clayton scored 14 of his team-high 16 points in the second half, but turnovers did The University of Tennessee at Martin in, as the Skyhawks fell to Southern Illinois 91-63 in the 2009-10 season-opener.

“I thought to start game we were very aggressive and that led to a couple steals and easy baskets and we were ready to roll,” firstyear UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “Then we gave up some uncontested shots and with a team like that - if you give them uncontested shots they are going to make them and make it tough for you.”

Southern Illinois junior forward Carlton Fay came off the bench to score a game-high 18 points, leading five Salukis who reached double figures. Kevin Dillard (14 points), Kendal Brown-Surles (12 points), Anthony Booker (10 points) and Tony Freeman (10 points) also led Southern Illinois, who shot 48 percent from three-point range (12-for-25).

A Miami native, Simmons was the only Skyhawk to reach double-figures, as his points and rebounds were also game-highs. He ended the night by setting seven new career-highs, going 10-for-15 from the floor (3-of-6 from beyond the three-point arc), and a perfect 7-for7 from the charity stripe in 32 minutes. “Benzor played really well,” James said. “He’s got that in him - we’ve been trying for a couple years to get that out of him. I think the light is starting to flicker a little bit.” Senior Delrico Lane was the next-highest scorer for James, scoring nine points and adding four rebounds, four steals and three assists. The UT Martin defense forced Missouri into committing 21 turnovers, as the Skyhawk defense also held Missouri to just 19 percent shooting (4-for-21) from three-point range. Laurence Bowers led the Tiger effort with 16 points and eight rebounds, while Keith Ramsey (15 points) and Marcus Denmon (10 points) also reached double-figures.

2010-11 Skyhawk Basketball

Fatigue set in midway through the second half. The visiting Hornets went on a 26-12 run and cut the Skyhawks lead to five points, 69-64, with 1:35 to play in the game. “When you play hard and fast like we are trying to do, fatigue becomes a factor,” James said. The Skyhawks played Missouri and Harris Stowe with only eight healthy players. The fatigue factor and the lack of depth led to the second-half stagger. The Skyhawks shot 50 percent from the field and missed six 3-point attempts. The Skyhawks also committed 14 turnovers in the game, nine of which were in the second half. However, the Skyhawks managed to withstand the run, by cashing in at the free throw line where they hit 23-of-30 attempts. The Skyhawks had four players in doubledigits. Clayton led all scorers with 21 points. Dominique Mpondo tossed in 16 points, while Benzor Simmons added 14 points. Newcomer Terrance Coleman netted 13 points.

“Benzor was really aggressive tonight,” James said. “We needed him to get the ball to the basket more and make shots and he did that. Reuben started slow, but in the second half he played a lot better. I thought our young guys really grew up today in this game as well. They got some good minutes and did some good things.”

“At the beginning of the game, we talked about playing four minutes at a time,” James said. “We got off to a good start, competed hard and we continued to fight.”

The Skyhawks posted a 12-point victory in front of more than 2,000 area elementary, middle school and high school students. UT Martin cruised to a 39-24 lead at the half as junior Reuben Clayton tossed in 14 points. The Skyhawk defense forced Harris Stowe to commit 10 turnovers in the first 20 minutes of action.

UTM RECORD BOOK

Junior Benzor Simmons scored 14 points in 22 minutes before fouling out, and senior point guard Delrico Lane finished the night with eight points, five rebounds, three steals and two assists. Zach Jones tallied seven points and grabbed five rebounds in 19 minutes to lead three Skyhawks making their collegiate debut.

For first-year Skyhawk head coach Jason James, it was a homecoming of sorts as the coach grew up in St. Louis. James’ Skyhawks came out and grabbed an early lead against Big 12 opponent Missouri - who unveiled its 2009 Elite Eight banner during pregame ceremonies - and outscored the Tigers 35-33 in the second half.

The win is head coach Jason James’ first career victory at UT Martin.

SKYHAWKS STRUGGLE FROM LONG RANGE IN 80-66 LOSS AT ASU

LITTLE THINGS PROVE COSTLY FOR SKYHAWKS IN OVC OPENER

EKU BURNS SKYHAWKS WITH 11 THREE-POINTERS

Junior Benzor Simmons led all scorers with 23 points, but The University of Tennessee at Martin struggled from three-point range and allowed Arkansas State to shoot 46 percent from beyond the three-point arc in an 80-66 loss at the Convocation Center.

Junior Benzor Simmons scored 22 points and pulled down nine rebounds for The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball team, but it wasn’t enough for the host Skyhawks as Morehead State escaped the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center with a 74-66 Ohio Valley Conference victory.

The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball team fell victim to the nation’s second best 3-point shooting club, Eastern Kentucky, Saturday night at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center. EKU knocked down 11 three-pointers en route to an 85-74 Ohio Valley Conference victory.

Junior Kenneth Faried led the Eagles with 19 points and 18 rebounds, while Les Simmons and Demonte Harper scored 15 points each.

“They made a bunch of 3-pointers, but when you give a team like Eastern Kentucky a lot of clean looks they are going to make a lot of shots,” UT Martin first-year head coach Jason James said.

The 23-point effort was the third 20-plus point performance of Simmons’ career and second so far in 2009, as he also put up 30 points at Missouri on Nov. 17. Junior Reuben Clayton also reached double-figures for UT Martin, finishing the night with 14 points to give him three double-digit scoring performances in all three games he has played in this season. As a team, the Skyhawks struggled from behind the three-point line, hitting only one of 12 attempts. After Simmons hit a three-pointer to open the game, UT Martin ended the game without another made three-point field goal over the last 39:02 of clock time. Daniel Bryant tallied 20 points, hitting four of his nine three-point attempts, to lead Arkansas State, while Brandon Reed chipped in 19 points for the Red Wolves. Brandon Peterson also scored 11 points and blocked a game-high four shots in 23 minutes for Arkansas State, who hit 10 of their 22 three-point attempts. “This game was the story of our season,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “We’ve had games where we play really well in stretches and other stretches when we’re really bad. I thought we started great, stayed in the game, but we had a lapse at the end of the first half. When you go on the road, you’ve got to be sharp, solid, and you have to make shots early and that caught up with us in the second half.”

With 1:01 to play in the game, UT Martin sophomore MJ Brown made a steal on Morehead State’s inbounds pass and lays the ball in to cut the Skyhawks’ deficit to three points, 65-62. On the other end of the court, Brown fouled Morehead State’s Brandon Shingles who made the front end of the twoshot foul to give the Eagles a 66-62 lead. He missed the second shot and Faried grabbed the rebound and hit the layup to stretch the lead out to six points, 68-62, and seal the victory.”

Papa Oppong led the visiting Colonels with 18 points. He shot 70 percent from the field and hit a pair of 3-pointers. Josh Taylor tossed in 16 points, while Joshua Jones added 13 points and Spencer Perrin scored 11 points and pulled down a team-high six rebounds. Junior Benzor Simmons led the host Skyhawks with 29 points and 11 rebounds, while senior Delrico Lane netted 18 points and had seven assists and five rebounds. Ookie Clayton tossed in 13 points and led the Skyhawks with three 3-pointers. As a team the Skyhawks were 7-for17 from behind the arch for 41 percent.

The Skyhawks trailed at the half 32-22, but kept things close for first 12 minutes. With 8:25 to play in the first half, Faried had a layup that gave the Eagles a 16-15 lead. The layup triggered a 16-7 Morehead State run.

UTM CANNOT OVERCOME FIRST HALF DEFICIT IN 79-51 LOSS AT MSU

SECOND HALF RUN LEADS CENTRAL ARKANSAS PAST SKYHAWKS, 81-71

SIMMONS’ CAREER NIGHT NOT ENOUGH AS UTM FALLS 84-63 AT UE

Guards Delrico Lane and Reuben Clayton each scored 15 points to lead The University of Tennessee at Martin, but large scoring runs by Missouri State in each half proved to be too difficult to overcome as the Skyhawks fell 79-51 at JQH Arena.

After a back-and-forth affair in the first half, The University of Tennessee at Martin opened up the second half with an early six-point lead. However, a cold streak ensued and Central Arkansas used a 16-0 run midway through the half that ultimately led to an 81-71 victory over the Skyhawks at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

“We didn’t come out of the locker room ready to play,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “Our first couple of possessions we turned the ball over and that always hurts in a game like this. Missouri State is as good as it gets in the Missouri Valley Conference.”

After a putback by Missouri State’s Keith Pickens opened the second half, the Skyhawks scored nine of the game’s next 10 points to cut the lead to 17 at 53-36 off Clayton’s fourth three-pointer of the night. The Bears answered right back with a 17-2 run over the next 8:13 to reach its biggest lead of the night at 70-38 with 8:50 to go.

Tadre Sheppard scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting and also grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds for Central Arkansas (4-5), while Jared Rehmel also had 21 points - making all 10 of his free throw attempts. Chris Poellnitz (16 points) and Imad Qahwash (10 points) also reached double figures for the Bears.

“I thought in the first half we really sat down and guarded them and made every shot tough on them,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “In the second half, they kind of smacked us in the mouth in the first two or three minutes and we did not respond. When you don’t respond to a good team on the road, everybody sees what happens. They got some easy lay-ups and got some free throws and we were playing from behind for the rest of the game.”

Simmons, a junior from Miami, made 11 of his 18 shots - including two of six from beyond the three-point arc - and made 11-of-12 free throws in 34 minutes. Reuben Clayton and MJ Brown came off the bench to each score seven points The loss drops the Skyhawks to 1-7 on the young season, but James wasn’t disappointed in for the Skyhawks. his team’s overall effort. “We had one guy in double figures,” James “We will just keep plugging along,” James said. “With all the offensive firepower that we have, you would think we could get some more said. “I think we’ll be fine. It’s going to take some time - it’s taken a little longer than we guys to score 10 or 15 points and tonight it just thought - but the guys have continued to work. didn’t happen. If you have one guy in double We played hard tonight and we’ll get it turned figures, especially at this level, you’re probably not going to win.” around, it’s just a matter of when.”

At the half, the Skyhawks shot 40 percent as a team, including 57 percent from three-point range (4-for-7) but were ultimately done in by 16 turnovers. The Bears shot 54.1 percent from the floor, hitting six of 10 three-point attempts. Clayton led UT Martin with 12 points at the half by hitting all three of his trey attempts. Mallett and Leonard each had all of their 13 points in the first half to pace Missouri State.

Reuben Clayton led the Skyhawks in scoring off the bench with 18 points, while Delrico Lane continued his scoring tear with 14 points, including a career-high four three-pointers. MJ Brown also chipped in 12 points for the Skyhawks off the bench, while Clayton led the Skyhawks with eight rebounds.

The Bears, however, improved to 8-0 on the season by placing four players in doublefigures, led by Jermaine Mallett, Kyle Weems and Adam Leonard - who each scored 13 points apiece. Nafis Ricks came off the bench to score 11 points as well for Missouri State.

“We played about 34 minutes,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “There were about six minutes where we had a lapse - that’s where they got up by about 14 points and we were struggling from there. We just quit guarding people - we let them get to the basket, we gave up a few offensive rebounds and a few uncontested shots.”

Evansville (6-3) placed four players in doublefigures, as James Haarsma led the way with 18 points and 14 rebounds. Bryan Bouchie came off the bench to score 18 points, and Denver Holmes and Colt Ryan each chipped in a dozen apiece for the Purple Aces, who shot 63 percent in the second half (15-for-24). Troy Taylor nearly missed a triple-double, grabbing 10 rebounds and handing out 10 assists while scoring seven points in 30 minutes off the bench.

Junior guards Marquis Weddle and Reuben Clayton helped The University of Tennessee of Martin hit a season-high 12 three-pointers, but the Skyhawks couldn’t shake off a slow start in a 95-68 loss at Florida State.

Junior guard Reuben Clayton led four doubledigit scorers for The University of Tennessee at Martin as the Skyhawks outlasted Westminster College 71-59 at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

Three players reached double-figures to lead The University of Tennessee at Martin charge, but the Murray State Racers shot 56 percent from the field in an 83-59 win in the Regional Special Events Center.

Weddle - playing in just his second game of the 2009-10 season - and Clayton each hit 5-of-10 three-pointers, helping the Skyhawks eclipse the previous season-high of nine three-point field goals made against Central Arkansas on Dec. 12.

Clayton’s 20 points were one short of his careerhigh, as the Memphis native continued his hot streak from beyond the three-point arc, nailing four of his seven attempts from long-range. After beginning the season 2-for-26 from threepoint range over the first four games, Clayton has now hit 18 of his 42 (43 percent) three-point attempts in the last six games. Clayton also pulled down eight rebounds for the Skyhawks, tying his previous career-high set against Central Arkansas on Dec. 12.

Marquis Weddle poured in a game-high 17 points, while Reuben Clayton chipped in 15 points to pace the Skyhawks. Freshman Zach Jones posted career-highs of 10 points and seven rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench tonight for UT Martin, who shot 37 percent (23for-62) for the game.

Weddle finished with 27 points - his 23rd career 20-plus point game - while Clayton’s careerhigh five treys helped him finish the night with 17 points. Benzor Simmons also scored in double-figures (12 points) and grabbed six rebounds for the Skyhawks, who were playing shorthanded without starting point guard Delrico Lane - who missed his first game of the season with a leg injury that will sideline him indefinitely. Six Seminoles scored in double-figures, led by Michael Snaer’s 18 points off the bench. Xavier Gibson (12 points), Terrance Shannon (11 points), Chris Singleton (10 points), Deividas Dulkys (10 points) and Jordan DeMercy (10 points) also led Florida State, who is coached by UT Martin alum Leonard Hamilton -a two-year letterman under head coach Floyd Burdette from 1969-71. “The second half we decided to come out and compete a little harder, but the game was already stretched out so much it was hard to come back,” James said. “They’re as long a team as you’ll see maybe in the country and they’re as athletic a team as you will see in the Atlantic Coast Conference. That’s a good basketball team we played tonight.”

Sophomore MJ Brown enjoyed an outstanding all-around performance, scoring 14 points with eight rebounds, four assists and four steals. Benzor Simmons scored 13 points and pulled down eight rebounds, while Terrance Coleman came off the bench to score 11 points for UT Martin, who shot 42 percent from the floor (26-for-62). The UT Martin defense held the Blue Jays to just 34 percent shooting (19-for-56) for the game. The physical Skyhawks outrebounded Westminster 45-33 and also outscored the Blue Jays 34-16 in the paint. Jake Vislay’s 19 points paced Westminster, while Stanley Crawford pitched in 14 points and Kurt Kovach scored 12 points and grabbed a game-high nine rebounds. “We didn’t play particularly well but we played well enough to win,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “Anytime you can get a win - especially on your home floor - it’s beneficial for us. This is something we can build on and hopefully carry into next week when we go to Murray.”

2010-11 UT Martin Basketball

“Zach got after it,” James said. “We had one guy who played consistently the whole basketball game. He showed up, he fought and battled on the glass and dove on the floor a couple times. We saw the things he is capable of doing - now we just have to see it consistently.” A trio of Racers scored 14 points apiece, as BJ Jenkins, Danero Thomas and Ivan Aska led the Murray State attack. The Racers shot 56 percent from the floor, including 67 percent (28-for-42) from inside the three-point line. “We came out a little flat - they took the game right to us and we didn’t respond very well in the first five to 10 minutes and that was the difference in the ball game in the first half,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “Murray State is as good as it gets in the Ohio Valley Conference when it comes to being a complete team.” The Skyhawks shot 37 percent from the floor in the first half with Clayton making both of UT Martin’s three-point field goals. Meanwhile, Murray State made 53 percent of its first-half field goal attempts and hit eight of its nine free throw attempts.

SECOND HALF RUN DOOMS SKYHAWKS IN 90-72 LOSS AT APSU

SKYHAWK OFFENSE STALLS IN 73-59 LOSS AT TENNESSEE STATE

SKYHAWKS BATTLE BUT DROP TOUGH 76-63 DECISION TO TTU

The University of Tennessee at Martin defense held Tennessee State to just three field goals over the last 10:49 of the game, but the Skyhawk offense tied its second-lowest point production of the season in a 73-59 loss at the Gentry Center.

The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball team placed three players in doublefigures, but Tennessee Tech shot 56 percent in the second half to pull away for a 76-63 win at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

Marquis Weddle led all scorers with 25 points tonight, making seven of his 11 field goal attempts (4-of-7 from beyond the threepoint arc) and seven of his eight shots from the charity stripe. Benzor Simmons scored 17 points, Reuben Clayton added 16 points and Ron Spencer grabbed a team-high seven rebounds to pace UT Martin.

At the break, the Skyhawks had torched the nets to the tune of 50 percent, making 14 of its 28 shots, including 4-of-7 from three-point range. It was just the third half in which UT Martin had shot 50 percent or better all season, joining the second half (50 percent) against Harris-Stowe on Nov. 20 and the first half against Eastern Kentucky (54 percent) on Dec. 5.

Playing in his third game of the season, freshman Ron Spencer set seven new careerhighs, including 16 points and eight rebounds to lead the Skyhawks. Reuben Clayton was the only other UT Martin player to reach double figures (14 points), and Terrance Coleman had seven points, five rebounds and five assists for the Skyhawks.

“It was a very exciting night and we had a good atmosphere for the Skyhawk fans,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “Now we have to try and re-group and tomorrow get ready for Jacksonville State and see if we can get a win on Saturday.”

Wil Peters led the Tigers with 16 points and nine rebounds, while Josh Sain (15 points) and Robert Covington (14 points) also paced Tennessee State. “We ran out of time towards the end and they were making their free throws and making plays when they needed to,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “We saw how active Ron is tonight and we saw the different things he can do on both ends of the floor.” At the half, Clayton’s nine points led UT Martin, and Spencer’s seven first-half points set a career-high. Spencer also grabbed a gamehigh four rebounds in the first 20 minutes for the Skyhawks, who shot 35 percent from the floor and committed 10 turnovers. Covington’s 14 points were a game-high at the break, as Tennessee State shot 46 percent from the field.

2010-11 Skyhawk Basketball

Marquis Weddle scored a team-high 17 points off the bench for UT Martin, and Reuben Clayton enjoyed a steady all-around night for the Skyhawks, as he scored 13 points, handed out five assists, grabbed four rebounds, blocked two shots and swiped two steals. Freshman Zach Jones also reached double-digits in the scoring column (10 points), while pulling down a team-high seven rebounds in just 14 minutes. Kevin Murphy led a balanced Golden Eagle scoring attack, as he poured in a game-high 18 points. Murphy was one of five starters who scored 10 or more points, as Frank Davis (15 points), Alfred Jones (14 points), Terrell Barnes (11 points) and Elijah CunninghamMuhammad (10 points) combined to score 68 of the team’s 76 points. Clayton’s eight points led UT Martin at the break, while Davis had nine points off three treys in five attempts for the Golden Eagles. The Skyhawks shot 30 percent (9-for-30) from the floor in the first half.

Wes Channels’’ 21 points led four Governors who reached double-figures, as Anthony Campbell (16 points), Caleb Brown (14 points, eight assists) and John Fraley (11 points) contributed to the Austin Peay offensive attack. The Govs shot 61 percent in the second half and 54 percent for the game.

The night began with the unveiling of the 2008-09 Ohio Valley Conference championship banner hanging in the rafters. Former UT Martin standout and current Memphis Grizzlies guard Lester Hudson was also in attendance and was recognized for his two years of service to the Skyhawk men’s basketball program.

“Marquis shot a good percentage and made some tough shots,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “Now we just have to get him back in the flow of the game and he will be ok. Ron has a chance to be a good player in this league. He plays hard and is very active and we saw that tonight.””

The Skyhawks were down 25 points at one point in the second half before a 17-2 run cut the deficit to just 10 points with 5:03 remaining. However, that was as close as UT Martin would get for the remainder of the game.

For the first 20 minutes of the game, The University of Tennessee at Martin looked like it might be able to recreate a little of the magic that occurred the last time they visited the Dunn Center - an 87-82 win on Feb. 5, 2009 that snapped a six-game losing streak for the Skyhawks in the building. However, Austin Peay used a 17-0 run over a stretch of 3:44 that resulted in the Skyhawks playing from behind the rest of the way in a 90-72 loss.

SECOND HALF LAPSE LEADS TO 73-63 SKYHAWKS COME UP EMPTY IN 77-63 LOSS TO JACKSONVILLE STATE LOSS AT SOUTHEAST MISSOURI After The University of Tennessee at Martin and Jacksonville State played an even half of basketball through the game’s first 20 minutes, Jacksonville State used a 50 percent second half shooting performance to outscore the Skyhawks 44-34 en route to a 73-63 win at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center. “I thought our effort was good and we got a lift from our second team in the first half,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “In the second half, we just couldn’t get enough defensive stops to win the game.” The Skyhawks struggled for the most part from the field, shooting 31 percent from the floor. Marquis Weddle and MJ Brown each scored 11 points to lead UT Martin, while Cataurius Taylor picked up career-highs in points (10), assists (eight) and steals (five) for the Skyhawks. Taylor also only committed two turnovers in 27 minutes tonight, putting his assist-to-turnover ratio at 22:9 over the last eight games. “Cataurius is starting to get more comfortable with the way we are trying to play and you are starting to see that,” James said. Nick Murphy netted a game-high 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting, while Trenton Marshall added 16 points for Jacksonville State. Stephen Hall recorded a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds while adding six assists for the Gamecocks. At the break, Jones’ seven points led eight UT Martin scorers, while Murphy had a game-high 12 points on 6-of-6 shooting. The Skyhawks shot 31 percent (11-for-36) from the field, but stayed in the game by forcing 13 Jacksonville State turnovers. The Gamecocks shot 44 percent (12-for-27) from the floor in the first 20 minutes.

Three University of Tennessee at Martin players reached double-figures, but Southeast Missouri shot 50 percent from the floor as the Skyhawks fell 77-63 to Southeast Missouri at the Show Me Center. Reuben Clayton led UT Martin with a gamehigh 19 points, including career-highs of 8-for11 from the charity stripe. Benzor Simmons chipped in 12 points for the Skyhawks, who shot 38 percent from the field. A bit of history was created as junior Marquis Weddle passed two all-time UT Martin greats in the scoring column. Weddle ended the night with 15 points, passing Marcus Glass (198486) and tying Michael Hart (1994-96) as UT Martin’s all-time seventh -leading scorer. All five starters reached double-figures for Southeast Missouri, led by Anthony Allison’s 18 points (3-of-4 shooting from three-point range). Sam Pearson and Marland Smith each contributed 14 points, and Johnny Hill (11 points) and LaMont Russell (10 points, 13 rebounds) paced the Redhawk effort. At the break, Weddle tied a game-high with 10 points to lead UT Martin, but the rest of the Skyhawks struggled from the floor - as the other nine players combined to make just 3-of16 field goals (19 percent). Smith also chipped in 10 points to pace the Redhawks at the half, as Southeast Missouri shot 48 percent (14-for-29) from the field in the first 20 minutes.

Saturday, Jan. 23 Lantz Arena - Charleston, Ill. LATE SECOND HALF RUN SPOILS SKYHAWK COMEBACK BID AT EIU After trailing by as many as 16 points in the second half, The University of Tennessee at Martin fought hard for its first Ohio Valley Conference win - cutting the deficit down to one point with under eight minutes to play. However, Eastern Illinois responded with a crucial 11-0 run and the Skyhawk offense could only muster one field goal in the last 8:28 in a 60-46 loss at Lantz Arena. Although UT Martin scored a season-low in points, the Skyhawk defense allowed its second-lowest point total of the season - almost matching the 60 points it allowed against Westminster on Dec. 30, 2009. For the game, the Skyhawks shot 27 percent (17-for-63), including 17 percent from beyond the three-point arc (4-for-23). Meanwhile, Eastern Illinois shot an even 40 percent in each half, and shot 50 percent from three-point range (6-for-12) for the game. “We just came out flat and we were uninterested in playing,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “We were down 12 or 14 points early, and the final margin was 14 points. That just shows you our margin for error is so small. We’ve got to play hard for 40 minutes, and the first couple of minutes hurt us.” Freshman Ron Spencer was the only Skyhawk to reach double-figures tonight, as he scored 10 points and blocked a career-high four shots. Another fellow freshman - Terrance Coleman - had a strong night with seven points and a team-high seven rebounds in just 18 points off the bench. Tyler Laser led all scorers with 21 points for Eastern Illinois, while Jeremy Granger (11 points) and TJ Marion (10 points) also scored in double-figures. Edin Suljic and Ousmane Cisse pulled down 12 and 10 rebounds, respectively, for the Panthers.

SKYHAWKS SOAR PAST SIU EDWARDSVILLE 68-52

SLOW START LEADS TO 77-45 LOSS TO OVC LEADER MURRAY STATE

SKYHAWK VALIANT COMEBACK FALLS JUST SHORT AGAINST APSU

The University of Tennessee at Martin men’s basketball team fell into an early hole and ultimately couldn’t overcome a cold shooting night, falling to the Murray State Racers 77-45 in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

Junior Marquis Weddle led all scorers with 25 points (17 in the second half), as the Union City native made eight of his 14 field goal attempts, including 5-of-7 from three-point range. Benzor Simmons added 11 points for UT Martin, who led by as many as 20 points and never trailed throughout the game.

The Skyhawks shot just 25 percent (15-for-61) for the game - including making one of its 11 three-point field goal attempts - while Murray State shot 57 percent (30-for-53) from the floor.

The Skyhawks shot 44 percent (25-for-57) for the game and got contributions from every direction - as all 10 Skyhawk players who appeared in the game chipped in at least one bucket.

“We played very well - we moved the ball well offensively and we shared the ball,” James said. “But I thought the key was our defense. We gave up 26 points each half and we outrebounded them by 19. Anytime you can do that, you’re going to win a lot of games.” Simmons had nine first-half points to lead the Skyhawks, who shot 43 percent (13-for-30) from the floor in the game’s first 20 minutes.

The Skyhawks began the night on a cold streak from the floor, missing its first 10 shots from the field. Meanwhile, Murray State scored the game’s first seven points and built a 20-point lead before Weddle converted on a long threepointer for UT Martin’s first field goal at the 10:36 mark. Weddle and Aska each had nine points to lead their respective teams at the half. UT Martin shot 22 percent (6-for-27) from the field in the game’s first 20 minutes, while the Racers hit 58 percent (19-for-33) of its field goal attempts. A Coleman jumper with 18:28 remaining opened the scoring in the second half, cutting UT Martin’s deficit to 21. That was as close as the Skyhawks would get the rest of the way - as BJ Jenkins answered with a three-pointer on Murray State’s next possession.

2010-11 Skyhawk Basketball

Junior Marquis Weddle led all scorers with 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting while also tying a career-high with eight rebounds for UT Martin. Benzor Simmons also chipped in 17 points tying his career-high in three-pointers (three) - for the Skyhawks, who used a 57 percent shooting (17-for-30) second half to outscore the Governors 45-39 in the second half. Despite the loss, the Skyhawks took care of the ball tonight - committing a season-low five turnovers. Wes Channels led a balanced Austin Peay scoring attack with 17 points, while Justin Blake scored 15 points for the Governors. John Fraley (13 points, 14 rebounds) and Anthony Campbell (13 points, 10 rebounds) each registered doubledoubles for Austin Peay. “Tonight was a learning experience for us, especially down the stretch,” James said. “The last couple minutes I thought when we needed stops - we got them and that’s the first time that’s happened in a long time for us. It gives you confidence because you saw what you can do defensively, but on the flip side - we still have to be a lot smarter and clean up a lot of things.”

THIS IS UT MARTIN

Mark Yelovich paced the Cougar attack with 20 points, while Aamir McCleary scored 18 points for SIU Edwardsville, who officially joined the Ohio Valley Conference in July of 2008 but is reclassifying to NCAA Division-I status and will not play a full OVC schedule until 2011-12.

Ivan Aska and Isaiah Canaan scored a gamehigh 13 points apiece for the Racers, while Danero Thomas (11 points) was the only other player to reach double-figures. Thomas and Tony Easley grabbed seven rebounds to lead Murray State, and Easley also blocked seven shots.

“We were able to eliminate their second shots and I think that was the biggest key of the second half,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “When we were limiting them to one shot, we got back in the game and we were able to do what we do best - which is get in transition.”

UTM RECORD BOOK

“Marquis took 14 shots and all of his shots were good shots,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “He passed up some clean looks for some great shots and I thought this was his best game this year as far as percentages go. He was pretty efficient and it was good to see him make a couple to get him going.”

Marquis Weddle led UT Martin with nine points, followed by Terrance Coleman and Zach Jones - who each chipped in eight points. Coleman also pulled down a career-high 11 rebounds (eight offensive).

After The University of Tennessee at Martin found themselves down by 18 points in the first half against Austin Peay, the Skyhawks scratched and clawed its way to within three points and possession of the ball with under 30 seconds left tonight. However, the Skyhawks missed its last three shots of the game and fell in a close one - 74-69 in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

SKYHAWKS WATCH FIRST HALF LEAD SLIP AWAY AGAINST TSU

SKYHAWKS EARN FIRST OVC WIN WITH 73-70 TRIUMPH OVER SEMO

FIRST HALF DEFICIT SINKS SKYHAWKS AT JSU, 80-68

The University of Tennessee at Martin shot 61 percent in the first half to build a 36-27 lead at halftime against Tennessee State University. However, the Skyhawks fell behind with a little over five minutes remaining in the game and never recovered, falling 74-68 to the Tigers in the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

Three players scored double-figures to help The University of Tennessee at Martin overcome a 17-point first half deficit and come away with its first Ohio Valley Conference victory, as the Skyhawks downed Southeast Missouri 73-70 at the Kathleen and Tom Elam Center.

Junior shooting guard Marquis Weddle led three University of Tennessee at Martin doublefigure scorers with 17 points off the bench, but the Skyhawks fell into an early hole and would never get closer than seven points in the second half in an 80-68 loss to Jacksonville State.

Marquis Weddle came off the bench to score 15 points and pass another all-time UT Martin great on the program’s scoring list, but it was Andres Irarrazabal who had a career-high 14 points and tied a season-high with six rebounds to pace the UT Martin rally. Irarrazabal was incredibly efficient, making all five of his field goal attempts and going 4-for-5 from the charity stripe in his fifth start of the season. Also igniting the Skyhawk comeback was Reuben Clayton, who scored 12 points and tied a careerhigh with seven assists in 29 minutes off the bench.

For Weddle, it was his sixth straight game in which he has led the team in scoring and 10th overall time in 14 games played this season. Benzor Simmons also chipped in with 12 points off the bench, while Andres Irarrazabal put together his second straight impressive game with 12 points and a team-high six rebounds. In Irarrazabal’s first 68 career games, he had never scored more than nine points in a game but he has accomplished that feat in his last two games.

Marquis Weddle poured in a game-high 25 points (20 in the first half) for UT Martin, who shot an even 50 percent for the game (25-for-50). In his third straight start, freshman Terrance Coleman was efficient with 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting for the Skyhawks. Jacquan Nobles scored 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting and Wil Peters had 19 points for Tennessee State, who shot 50 percent (13-for-26) in the second half. Weddle made seven of his 11 field goal attempts in the game’s first 20 minutes for a game-high 20 points, as only one other player (Nobles - 10 points) reached double-figures on either side. Simmons opened up the second half with a lay-up to give UT Martin its biggest lead of the night at 38-27 with 19:38 remaining. Minutes later, Tennessee State used a 7-0 run to slice UT Martin’s lead to just three with 16:31 to go. The Skyhawks responded by scoring the game’s next five points to extend its lead to 45-37. The Tigers started another run - this time a 13-0 run in 5:02 to go ahead by five points off a Peters three-pointer. Tennessee State kept its lead until a Coleman one-handed slam off an alley-oop pass from Reuben Clayton produced the game’s eighth and final tie of the night at 53-all. Peters scored 12 consecutive points for the Tigers, giving Tennessee State its biggest lead of the night by hitting a pair of free throws that made the score 65-58 with 2:38 left.

56

Weddle - who went 3-for-3 from beyond the three-point arc - passed Jeremy Kelly (2001-06) as the program’s sixth all-time leading scorer in the first half. “Andres was able to finish plays tonight,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “It was great for Andres to finally see his hard work that he’s been going through the last couple days pay off.” Anthony Allison scored a game-high 18 points to lead Southeast Missouri, who shot 43 percent (26-for-60) for the game. Marland Smith (17 points) and Sam Pearson (11 points, eight assists) also led the Redhawk effort. “Our kids fought hard and we didn’t lay down when we could have,” James said. “It was an all-around team effort and our guys saw what we can do when we play the right way. It’s been a long time coming but we knew we were close - it was just about getting over the hump and tonight we finally did.”

2010-11 UT Martin Basketball

Ohio Valley Conference scoring leader Trenton Marshall led all scorers with 20 points for Jacksonville State, and Nick Murphy recorded a double-double with 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Gamecocks. Jeremy Bynum added 12 points for Jacksonville State, who shot 46 percent (24-for-52) from the floor. “We just didn’t start very well,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “Everybody brought something to the table tonight but we didn’t get enough defensive stops. Giving up 80 points is not going to win in this league.” Weddle’s five points paced UT Martin at halftime, as the Skyhawks shot 33 percent (8for-24) from the field. The Gamecocks were led by Marshall - who had 11 points in 11 minutes as they shot 45 percent (13-for-29) from the floor and held a 10-0 advantage in fast break points. Simmons made two free throws with 4:47 remaining to get UT Martin back to within single digits for the first time since the latter part of the first half but it couldn’t get closer than eight.

GAME OF FREE THROWS WAVERS TOWARD TENNESSEE TECH, 70-61

SECOND HALF RUN PUSHES EIU PAST SKYHAWKS IN HOME FINALE

SKYHAWKS HANG TOUGH WITH BALL STATE BEFORE FALLING 68-52

In a game where 80 free throws were attempted, The University of Tennessee at Martin could only convert 61 percent of its chances from the charity stripe while Tennessee Tech hit 72 percent from the free throw line in a 70-61 Skyhawk loss at the Eblen Center.

After trailing by 14 points with 11 minutes remaining in the game, The University of Tennessee at Martin sliced its deficit to just two points. However, Eastern Illinois used a 12-0 run over the next three minutes and came away with an 83-68 win over the Skyhawks in the 2009-10 home finale.

The University of Tennessee at Martin traded blows with the Ball State University Cardinals for the game’s first 20 minutes, but Ball State shot 56 percent from the floor in the second half and ultimately came away with a 68-52 win at Worthen Arena.

Benzor Simmons led UT Martin in scoring with 14 points, while freshman Terrance Coleman tied a career-high with 13 points and led the team with nine rebounds. Ron Spencer nearly missed a double-double with nine points and eight rebounds, while MJ Brown added nine points in his first start since Jan. 9 at Tennessee State.

The Skyhawks attempted 41 free throws, just one shy of its season-high at Southeast Missouri on Jan. 21. Overall, UT Martin hit 34 percent (16-for-47) of its field goal attempts from the floor, tying a season-low in field goals attempted (at Southeast Missouri on Jan. 21).

Ball State scored six of scoring on the block for us and I think those five the game’s next eight points to push its lead out assists are just kind of an indication of his feel to nine. for how to play. He’s been playing really, really Perry’s hoop-and-foul ignited an 8-0 run for well.” Ball State, who stretched the margin out to 15.

“Free throws were the story of the game - you have to make free throws,” UT Martin head coach Jason James said. “You miss 16 free throws - you can’t expect to win a Division-I basketball game. The kids played hard and I thought we did a lot of things right but you have to be able to step to the line and make them and we just didn’t do that.”

Andres Irarrazabal continued his sizzling hot play for UT Martin - scoring 13 points while pulling down a season-high eight rebounds and handing out a career-high five assists. In Irarrazabal’s last four games, he is averaging 10.8 points and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 16-for-21 (76 percent) from the field and making 11 of his 12 free throw attempts (92 percent). Before last Tuesday’s game, Irarrazabal had never reached double-figures in 68 career games, but he has accomplished that feat in three of his last four outings.

TRIO OF FIRST HALF EKU RUNS RESULT IN 84-60 SKYHAWK LOSS

SKYHAWKS FALL 73-63 IN SEASON FINALE AT MOREHEAD STATE

The University of Tennessee at Martin Skyhawks scorched the nets early and led by nine points seven minutes into the game. However, Eastern Kentucky used three runs to create some separation and came away with an 84-60 victory in McBrayer Arena. Benzor Simmons continued his strong play against Eastern Kentucky, scoring 25 points while making a career-high five 3-pointers to lead all scorers. Earlier this season on Dec. 5, Simmons poured in 29 points against the Colonels. Freshman Ron Spencer tallied his first career double-double with 12 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for UT Martin, who shot 36 percent (20-for-56) from the field. The Skyhawks outrebounded Eastern Kentucky 39-30 and made 87 percent (13-for-15) of its attempts from the charity stripe.

As a team, Eastern Kentucky shot 53 percent (34-for-64) from the floor and made 11 three-pointers. “Benzor came out rolling and made a couple shots early and got us going a little bit,” Skyhawks head coach Jason James said. “We were getting the shots that we wanted but there’s a difference between getting them and knocking them down. We challenged Ron to get 10 points and 10 rebounds tonight and he did it. I thought he played really well and was very active like the old Ron. We had missed him for a couple games but he was back to his old self bouncing around under the rim.”

For the game, Morehead State shot 44 percent (26-for-59). “We came out really ready to play in the first half,” Skyhawk head coach Jason James said. “We talked about going out with a bang and have something to build on going into next year. Our program is going to compete, fight, scratch and claw and I thought we did that for 40 minutes tonight in a very physical OVC game.” Despite playing only 11 minutes, Weddle led all scorers with 10 points at the break. UT Martin shot 43 percent (9-for-21) from the floor and made half (4-for-8) of its three-point field goal attempts.

LESTER HUDSON: LOWE’S SENIOR CLASS ALL-AMERICAN Capping off a spectacular 2008-09 season, Lester Hudson was named to the All-Senior All-American second team, as selected in balloting for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. NCAA Division I coaches, national media, and fan balloting determined the winners. Hudson was one of 10 finalists for the award, enjoying the Final Four from Ford Field in Detroit in an extravagant weekend of fan interaction and community service. North Carolina forward Tyler Hansbrough won the award, which was in its eighth year of existence. CBS Sports broadcaster Dick Enberg, who first conceived the idea of an award for seniors in 2001, helped make the announcement between the two semi-final games on April 4. The award was inspired by the story of former Duke star Shane Battier, who could have been an NBA lottery pick but returned to college for his senior season and led the Blue Devils to the NCAA national championship in 2001 and earned his degree. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award honors the attributes of senior student-athletes in four areas: classroom, community, character and competition.

FLOYD BURDETTE 1952-71

BOB PAYNTER 1971-80

ART TOLIS 1980-82

Ushering in the men’s basketball era at UT Martin was James C. Henson. Henson, a former standout football player and track performer at Mississippi State, served in numerous capacities during his early years at UT Martin. He coached football and basketball, headed the Department of Physical Education, served as director of athletics and taught a chemistry class. Colleagues and students both remember his philosophy of life, good humor and amicable manner. In 1952, the UT Martin athletics department opened a new branch of the department that catered to only women’s athletics, thanks in large part to Henson’s funding. Henson also was at the helm of some of the most successful programs in school history - the men’s tennis program. Henson won four Volunteer State Athletic Conference titles in the 1970’s. After coaching the team for three decades, Henson retired in 1980. Henson’s presence is still very much around the UT Martin campus, as the Henson House overlooks the team’s varsity tennis courts, and serves as an office for head coach Dennis Taylor as well as a dressing room, media room equipped with surround sound, a stringing room with three stringing machines, a full kitchen and a team meeting room. All in all, Henson served as athletics director from 1947-71, and head coach of the football (1947-56), men’s basketball (194752) and men’s tennis (1952-80) squads. In 1984, Henson was the ninth member inducted into the UT Martin Athletics Hall of Fame.

The longest tenured coach in UT Martin history, Floyd Burdette was at the helm when UT Martin competed in the Volunteer State Athletic Conference. Burdette, who played basketball at UT Martin in the mid1930’s, returned home to head the men’s basketball program in 1952. A native of Martin, Burdette had served for seven years as the head basketball coach at the University of Alabama prior to his appointment at Martin. Burdette won the most games of any coach in UT Martin history (197), and posted a .500 record or better in nine of his 11 seasons in the VSAC. As the team prepared to exit the VSAC and enter the Mid-South Conference in 1970, Burdette’s team stormed to three successive victories and the conference championship Burdette also was part of a major change in UT Martin athletics history in 1969, as he recruited Leonard Hamilton, who was the first African-American to suit up for a UT Martin athletics program. Burdette was a charter member into the UT Martin Athletics Hall of Fame in 1983.

As the UT Martin program entered the Gulf South Conference, Bob Paynter was appointed to run the men’s basketball program, as well as direct the athletics department in 1971. Prior to becoming head coach and director of athletics, Paynter had been serving as an administrative assistant to UT Martin Chancellor Archie R. Dykes. A native of Richmond, Ky., he received his bachelors degree from St. Mary’s College in Minnesota, his master’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University, and a doctorate in education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. His coaching experience included a 14-year stint as head coach at the University High School of East Tennessee State University. Paynter compiled three seasons with a .500 or better record, but could never reach that mark in GSC competition. Paynter did, however, coach eight different players to All-GSC honors. Paynter was responsible for Fred Sanders, Jim Martin and Larry Carter earning All-GSC first team accolades in his tenure, as well as guiding Jack Bendure, Marcus McLemore, Vic Quinn, Joe Biddie and Don Hubbard to All-GSC second team mentions in his tenure. In fact, Paynter was the man responsible for recruiting Hubbard, who ended his fouryear UT Martin career as the school’s all-time leading scorer, reaching 1,124 points.

Leading the UT Martin program to its first-ever 20-win season and NCAA Division II Tournament appearance was head coach Art Tolis. Tolis, who had served as an assistant coach at Louisiana State University for six years, was highly respected as a coach and a recruiter prior to his appointment at UT Martin by Chancellor Charles E. Smith and athletics director Ray Mears. In Tolis’ first season at the helm, he led UT Martin to five Gulf South Conference wins, which was the total of combined GSC wins the team had accumulated in the previous two seasons. Don Hubbard earned All-GSC second team honors in 1980-81. The team took off in Tolis’ second season, setting a program record for single-season overall wins (20) and GSC victories (nine). The team earned one of the program’s biggest wins at the time, a 65-41 drubbing of Mississippi State in Starkville on Dec. 12, 1981. In the season’s 11 losses, only one loss was more than eight points, including an amazing seven losses by five points or less. Three of the team’s losses came to GSC rival Livingston by a combined eight points, including the GSC Tournament championship game. Even with the loss, the team advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament, defeating Central Missouri before falling to future OVC member Southeast Missouri by a 56-53 score. Tolis’ second season also produced another school record, as the team landed two firstteam All-GSC selections in Larry Brooks and Darrell Smith.

ALL-TIME COACHES P e r h a p s the most influential coach in UT Martin history was Cal Luther. Tabbed by UT Martin athletics director Don McLeary to guide the UT Martin program through the NCAA Division-I re-classification process, Luther had more than 30 years of coaching experience. After rebuilding DePauw (Ind.) to an Indiana Collegiate Conference championship, Luther moved on to Ohio Valley Conference member Murray State, where he was credited for laying the foundation for the program’s success. At Murray State, Luther led the Racers to three OVC titles, was named OVC Coach of the Year three times, and earned a spot in the school’s athletics Hall of Fame after leading the team to two NCAA Tournaments. From Murray State, Luther went to Longwood in Virginia, where he led a former all-girls school to a transition from Division-III to Division-II, earning five winning seasons and a 20-7 record in 198889. At UT Martin, Luther guided the team into the Ohio Valley Conference and made the change from the Pacers nickname to Skyhawks. While the team scheduled the toughest opponents for most of Luther’s tenure to keep up with Division-I budget restraints, Luther still found success - earning OVC Coach of the Year in 1996 after his program earned its first winning season in the OVC.

The UT M a r t i n Skyhawks earned its first-ever postseason berth as a Division-I member under the guidance of Bret Campbell. An assistant coach at OVC member Austin Peay before his arrival in Martin, Campbell gave the Skyhawks its first-ever winning season since joining the Division-I ranks in just his third season in charge. Six of the 14 UT Martin alltime 1,000 point scorers played under Campbell, including standout guard Lester Hudson. In Campbell’s last two seasons as coach, the Skyhawks were led by Hudson, who quickly became one of the most dynamic players in the NCAA after tallying the NCAA’s first-ever quadruple double (25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals) against Central Baptist in the third game of his career. Under Campbell, the Skyhawks hosted its first OVC Tournament game and won its first two OVC Tournament games.The best season by far in Campbell’s tenure was 200809, when the Skyhawks secured its first-ever outright regularseason Ohio Valley Conference championship. The Skyhawks posted its first 20-win season since 1987-88, and made an appearance in the National Invitation Tournament, where it hung tough with Auburn before falling 87-82. For his efforts, Campbell received OVC Coach of the Year honors.

A f t e r spending the last seven seasons as an assistant coach at UT Martin, including the role of associate head coach during the 200809 Ohio Valley Conference championship season, Jason James was named the program’s eighth head coach on June 5, 2009. James, a native of St. Louis, Mo., was the nation’s secondyoungest NCAA Division-I men’s basketball head coach at the time of his hiring. James posted several positives during his debut season as bench leader at UT Martin in 2009-10 against arguably one of the toughest schedules in the history of the program. In fact, when the brackets were released for each of the four postseason basketball tournaments, James saw several familiar names. That’s because the Skyhawks played nine games against six postseason teams in 2009-10. Florida State, Missouri and Murray State each made the NCAA Tournament, while Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State each accepted invitations to the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and Missouri State was part of the 16-team CollegeInsider. com Tournament (CIT). Despite the quality of opponents, the Skyhawks made no excuses and battled down to the wire in each and every game before ending the year with a 4-25 slate. Seven of the team’s losses were by 10 points or less as the Skyhawks battled injuries and was forced to play players out of position. As a result, James shuffled 15 different starting-five combinations throughout the season, as all 12 active UT Martin players started at least three games. A bit of history occured in late December, as the Skyhawks earned back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Week accolades for just the second time ever.

THIS IS UT MARTIN

Leading the most successful stretch in UT Martin basketball history was Glen Ellyn, Ill. native Tom Hancock. Hancock had spent one season as an assistant coach at UT Martin before being promoted to head coach after the resignation of Art Tolis concluding the 198182 season. Hancock’s first season was a season of many firsts in UT Martin program history, as the team broke or tied 19 school records en route to a programbest 21 win season, its first Gulf South Conference championship, and second consecutive NCAA Division II South Central Regional Tournament. Picked seventh out of eight teams in the preseason poll in 1982-83, Hancock earned GSC Coach of the Year Honors and 6-7 junior center Jerry Davis was named GSC Player of the Year both of which were the first time UT Martin was represented in those GSC categories. The Pacers went 17-1 at home and ranked No. 4 in the NCAA in defense, as Davis, Gus Rudolph and Mitch Stentiford were all named to the GSC’s first team. Hancock would go on to post two more 20-win seasons and win one more GSC championship in the 1987-88 season. Overall, Hancock’s teams shattered more than 40 records in his nine-year tenure, and his average of 19 wins per season are the highest of any UT Martin coach.

OHIO VALLEY CONFERENCE Entering its 63rd 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 2009-10 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 history 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 in 1988 when it knocked off 14th-ranked North Carolina State, 78-75. The Racers’ M&M Boys - Jeff Martin and Don Mann - combined for 39 points in the win. MSU nearly went on to the Sweet 16 that year, losing to eventual national champion Kansas, 61-58. A bank shot by Mann that would’ve given the Racers a onepoint lead rolled off the rim with three seconds left. In 1990 as a No. 16 seed, Murray State took No. 1 seed Michigan State into overtime before falling 75-71; that game still marks the closest a No. 16 seed has come to knocking off a No. 1 in men’s tournament action. More recently, Murray State has dominated the OVC Tournament, reaching the championship game every year in the 1990’s. The Racers’ 14 OVC Tournament Championships are the most among all OVC schools. After former member Middle Tennessee State won a first round game in 1989, the league had a drought as no other OVC team won a NCAA Tournament game for the next 19 years. But Morehead State, coming off a thrilling double overtime OVC Tournament victory over Austin Peay, topped Alabama State 58-43 in the Opening Round game at Flyer Arena in Dayton, Ohio. The game was played in front of an Opening Round record crowd of 11,346; that crowd included many MSU fans who made the three hour drive from Morehead for the game. The Eagles season would come to three days later when they lost to No. 1 overall seed Louisville, despite playing the Cardinals close for a majority of the game. In 2009-10, Murray State made OVC history by winning a record 31 games (31-5) on its way to the league’s regular season and tournament championship. In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the No. 13 seed Racers topped Vanderbilt in thrilling fashion when senior Danero Thomas hit a jumper as time expired to lift MSU to a 66-65 victory. It marked the first OVC team to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament since 1989, and snapped a skid of 71-straight loses to Southeastern Conference foes (dating back to 2000-01). In the second round the Racers pushed eventual national runner-up Butler to the brink before losing 54-52. Several players have won OVC Player of the Year honors twice: Western Kentucky’s Jim McDaniels (1969-70 and 1970-71), Murray

State’s Les Taylor (1971-72, 1972-73), Jeff Martin (1987-88, 1988-89), Popeye Jones (1989-90, 1990-91) and Marcus Brown (1994-95, 1995-96), Austin Peay’s Otis Howard (1976-77, 1977-78), Middle Tennessee’s Jerry Beck (1980-81, 198182), Akron’s Joe Jakubick (1982-83, 1983-84), Tennessee State’s Carlos Rogers (1992-93, 199394) and UT Martin’s Lester Hudson (2007-08, 2008-09). The OVC also has the honor of being the only conference to boast the nation’s leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists all in one season. That feat was accomplished in 1991-92 by Morehead State’s Brett Roberts (28.1 ppg), Murray State’s Popeye Jones (14.4 rpg) and Tennessee Tech’s Van Usher (8.8 apg). In 2007-08, UT Martin guard Lester Hudson became the first men’s Division I player to record a quadruple-double in a game, when he registered 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in a victory over Central Baptist College. Hudson, who ranked fourth in scoring nationally as a junior, returned for his senior season in 2008-09 and was second nationally in scoring (behind Davidson’s Stephen Curry) at 27.5 points a contest. Hudson earned numerous honors (including OVC Player of the Year and OVC Male Athlete of the Year in each 2008 and 2009 and All-American status from several outlets) before being 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 league had another historical moment in November 2008 when the NCAA awarded Nashville the 2014 NCAA Women’s Division I Final Four. The OVC will serve as the host of the prestigious event, which is one of the biggest sporting events the city of Nashville can host. The event will be held at Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.
