WSSU HISTORY Winston-Salem State University was founded as the Slater Industrial Academy on September 28, 1892. It began in a one-room frame structure with 25 pupils and one teacher. In 1895, the school was recognized by the state of North Carolina, and in 1897, it was chartered by the Slater Industrial and State Normal School. From the beginning, the school has insisted upon the vital importance of elementary school teachers in building an improved citizenship. Emphasis has, therefore, constantly been placed upon the quality and quantity of training for these teachers. In 1925, the General Assembly of North Carolina recognized the school’s leadership in this field and granted the school a new charter, extending its curriculum above high school. The school changed its name to Winston-Salem Teachers College and empowered it, under the authority of the State Board of Education, to confer appropriate degrees. Winston-Salem Teachers College thus became the first Negro institution in the nation to grant degrees for teaching in the elementary grades. The Nursing School was established in 1953, awarding graduates the degree of Bachelor of Science. The basic nursing program covers four years of study with equal emphasis on academic and professional education. In 1957, the North Carolina General Assembly revised the charter of the college and authorized the expansion of the curriculum to include secondary education and any other specific types of training as directed and determined by the State Board of Higher Education. The North Carolina General Assembly of 1963 authorized the changing of the name of Winston-Teachers College to Winston-Salem State College. A statute designating Winston-Salem Teachers College as Winston-Salem State University received legislative approval in 1969. On October 30, 1971, the General Assembly reorganized higher education in North Carolina, and on July 1, 1972, Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) became one of 16 constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina, subject to the control of the Board of Governors. Winston-Salem State University is located on 117 acres in WinstonSalem, Forsyth County, North Carolina, a city of over 190,000 residents. This thriving Twin City is part of the Piedmont Triad, which encompasses the neighboring cities of Greensboro and High Point. The Triad is one of the most heavily populated and fastest growing metropolitan areas between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, GA (U.S. Census Statistical Information). Winston-Salem State University rapidly is changing its “well-kept secret” status. The University has been ranked by U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges and Universities” publication as one of the best public liberal arts colleges in the south for the last six years. WSSU is perhaps best defined by part of the University’s mission statement which reads: “Excellent academic programs with a strong liberal arts foundation will be offered within a learning culture which exemplifies excellence in teaching and scholarship; emphasizes faculty-student interaction; promotes lifelong learning; and prepares individuals for leadership and service in the global society.”


The present day Winston-Salem State University has come a long way from its humble beginnings as Slater Industrial Academy in 1892. WSSU now enrolls nearly 6,000 students, offers bachelor’s degrees in 43 academic majors, master’s degrees in 12 degree programs, and employs nearly 250 full-time faculty and 400 staff members. It is accredited by the Commission on College of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. WSSU has a diverse student population with increasing enrollment of non-traditional and part-time students. On March 5, 1998, the University’s “Strategic Framework for Change” was unveiled to the Board of Trustees and the Winston-Salem community. The document provides the context for transforming today’s Winston-Salem State University into one of the region’s finest public undergraduate institutions. Nursing at Winston-Salem State University offers a global health curriculum and international student and faculty exchange. Gottenburg’s University in Sweden, the Nightingale Institute at King’s College in London, the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland, Waterford Regional Technical College in Southern Ireland, and WSSU are all partners in this exciting venture. The pass rate for Winston-Salem State University nursing graduates on the state board examination is above 90 percent, one of the highest in the state of North Carolina and the highest among historically black colleges and universities nationally. During the summer of 1997, a team of scientists and students were lauded for the early detection of breast cancer. The project is conducted in collaboration with researchers at the University of Helsinki in Finland. WSSU also leverages partnerships with Duke University, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, and National University of Singapore to expand research opportunities and curricula for students and faculty. WSSU’s GAMMA Center for computer graphics, animation and multimedia applications recently received national recognition in the 1998 edition of Animation Magazine’s Guide to Schools and Recruitment. In the 1990’s, Fortune 500 corporations increasingly recruited business, economics, and accounting graduates. Recently, the University’s student chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants was recognized in the national competition at the Association’s annual meeting. Sport Management at WSSU is one of the top undergraduate programs of its kind in the country and is seeking wider accreditation by the North American Society for Sport Management and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education. Therapeutic Recreation and Physical Education for Mature Adults at WSSU and across the nation are among the fastest growing health-related curricula. Only a handful of colleges and universities offer bachelors degrees in these disciplines, and even fewer are accredited by related professional organizations. Winston-Salem State’s Digg’s Gallery is a cultural meeting place where art is the common language for a wide range of campus and community discussions. Founded by James Gordon Haines in 1990, the gallery is committed to exhibiting African and African-American visual arts and is highly regarded by the art community as one of the area’s premiere galleries. Winston-Salem State University students, faculty, and administrators truly embody the University motto…”Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve.”

WSSU and the NAIA WSSU’s History With The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics)

Prior to the Rams’ 61 years of membership in the CIAA, Winston-Salem State University excelled in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The NAIA held national championships starting in 1937 at City Municipal Auditorium. However, the Rams, and all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) were not admitted to the NAIA until 1953. The Rams played versus NAIA competition in the days prior to their involvement, but were not a recognized member of the NAIA during that period. WSSU joined the CIAA in 1945 as a charter member and as a member of NCAA Division II (previously the small college/university division). The Rams continued their membership in the CIAA and Division II until 1953 when all HBCUs (regardless of locale) were placed in District 29 of the NAIA. The Rams continued (as did most schools) as members of both the NCAA and the NAIA. The 16-year old NAIA allowed for dual membership as both an NAIA school and an NCAA school, a distinction that the Rams kept until 1983 when they ceased their membership in the NAIA and became solely a member of the NCAA (Division II). During the 30-year NAIA membership, the Rams captured six NAIA District 29 men’s basketball titles and as a result participated in the NAIA National Championship Tournament. The Rams won District 29 titles in 1961, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1975 and 1978. During those six appearances, the Rams won nine games and lost six for a winning percentage of .600. WSSU never advanced past the quarterfinal round of the tournament and never placed in the top four in any of their six years of participation. However, the Rams did capture the #1 seed in the 1978 season before being upset by Kearney State in the quarterfinals (89-76).

A

lthough Winston-Salem was incorporated by merger in 1913, the community dates back to 1716, when members of the Moravian Church established Salem as the congregational town Wachovia acquired for the use of its settlers. The Moravians’ vision of creating a self-sufficient community made Salem a haven for entrepreneurs. Within a few years, the town included a pottery, tannery, brickyard, flour mill, bakery, slaughterhouse, brewery, iron works, and cloth and furniture makers. Salem’s manufacturing prowess gave it a prominent role as a supplier during the American Revolution and the Civil War. The city of Winston was founded immediately north of Salem to serve as the county seat when Forsyth County was chartered in 1849. The years after the Civil War catapulted the city to national prominence as a manufacturing center. The rise is often dated to the arrival of R.J. Reynolds in 1874. Reynolds was attracted by the quality of tobacco the area produced, but he wasn’t the only one; Brothers P.H. and J.W. Hanes had the largest tobacco factory in town and in all there were 15 tobacco factories by 1878. Later, the Hanes brothers would sell their tobacco company and start a dry goods (clothing) business, and Reynolds became the largest tobacco company in the United States. The success of these industries, and of the companies that supplied them, brought wealth to the community that fueled the startup of other successful businesses such as Piedmont Airlines, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, T.W. Garner Food Co. (makers of Texas Pete hot sauce), and Goody’s headache powders. Winston-Salem’s manufacturing base ensured a healthy banking industry; with deregulation, financial services have become an important component of the local economy. Today, Winston-Salem is home to BB&T making the city the eleventh largest banking center in the United States. Concurrent with the rise of banking in the 1980s and ‘90s, the medicine and health care industries grew. Novant Health and the Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital Medical Center each operate 800-bed regional medical centers that are the flagships for large, diversified medical services corporations. The rise of medicine also has spurred the city’s growth as a technology center. The Piedmont Triad Research Park, located in downtown, is home to 20 companies, including four biomedical companies spun out of research at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Under the leadership of former WSSU Chancellor Dr. Harold L. Martin, Sr., Winston-Salem State University has made a large contribution and commitment to research in the PTRP. Winston-Salem has long been a leader in promoting the arts. The first arts council in the United States was incorporated here in 1949; currently the city ranks first nationally in per capita giving to the arts. Winston-Salem is home to the North Carolina School of the Arts, the Southeast Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA), and the National Black Theater Festival.

WSSU Sports Medicine

Winston-Salem State University Sports Medicine All Winston-Salem State University student-athletes receive first-class care from the WSSU Sports Medicine staff which is comprised of a team of certified athletic trainers, family practice physicians, orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine consultants, and a group of undergraduate students who are completing clinical experiences in the Department of Human Performance and Sport Sciences. The Sports Medicine program at WSSU is closely associated with the WFU Baptist Medical Center Department of Sports Medicine. As a result, all injured student-athletes at WSSU receive immediate attention from physicians with the highest credentials. The Winston-Salem State University Sports Medicine philosophy is two-fold: to assist in preventing injuries through effective seasonal and research-oriented programs, and to facilitate an aggressive post-injury total-body rehabilitation program for a timely return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate total well-being of each student-athlete is the top priority. WSSU’s aggressive and functional approach encompasses a wide array of Sports Medicine consultants. Several rehabilitation programs may include osteopathic manual medicine, exercise physiology, nutrition, biomechanical evaluations, sports psychiatry, massage therapy and orthopedic surgeons. The WSSU Sports Medicine staff is comprised of certified athletic trainer and Director of Sports Medicine, Darrell Turner, M.Ed., ATC, LAT, Dr. Cristin Ferguson, MD, team orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Daryl Rosenbaum, MD, family medicine, and Dr. Heath Thornton, MD, family medicine. “The most important aspect of the Sports Medicine program is the athletes.

WSSU Division I Classification

T

he Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics continues into the third year of a five-year transition to the NCAA Division I level in 2007-08 and will enter into the first year of membership in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).

Legendary WSSU Coach, the late Clarence “Big House” Gaines addresses the crowd on July 7, 2004 when the Rams announced their intent to move to NCAA Division I.

In a drive to support rapid growth and attain higher visibility, the Board of Trustees at WinstonSalem State University (WSSU) approved a plan to seek reclassification of the school’s athletic programs to compete at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I level. WSSU, formerly a member of NCAA Division II, submitted an application to the NCAA seeking the change in classification on December 1 of 2004 as required by the athletic association’s bylaws. This step formally started a five-year process that culminates with WSSU teams and athletes gaining eligibility to compete for all Division I championships during the 2009-10 seasons. “Moving up to NCAA Division I advances our university’s strategic plan and will offer our talented student-athletes even more challenging competition,” said Harold L. Martin, Sr., WSSU’s former chancellor (and acting chancellor at the time of the announcement). “Specifically, competing on a bigger stage will elevate awareness of WSSU and our reputation for excellence regionally and nationally, while creating opportunities to generate even more revenue from our athletic programs.” In recent years, WSSU’s population has grown by 15 to 20 percent annually and now numbers nearly 6,000 students. This figure is expected to top 7,500 students by 2010. Reclassifying the university’s athletic programs is consistent with this emerging position as a much larger and nationally recognized institution, according to Martin. The university remained a member of NCAA Division II through the 2005-06 seasons while beginning the reclassification process. During this period, WSSU maintained its status as a full member of the Central Collegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), subject to agreement with conference officials and member institutions before moving to the MidEastern Athletic Conference during the second year of the transition. Investments in New Facilities, Sports, Scholarships, and Coaches

WSSU Director of Athletics, Dr. Chico Caldwell, has been instrumental in helping to ready the Rams for the move to Division I.

The reclassification plan approved by WSSU’s Board of Trustees calls for substantial investment in, and expansion of, athletic facilities, programs, and staff; actions necessary to comply with NCAA rules for Division I members. Specific plan elements include: • Spending $4 million over a five-year period to improve and upgrade athletic facilities; an additional $6.7 million to renovate the CE Gaines Center could be allocated through the university’s capital plan, which would expand total facilities investments to $10.7 million. • Adding six new sports, which will include: men’s and women’s indoor (added in 2005-06) and outdoor track & field (added in 2006-07) teams, baseball (2009), and women’s golf (2010).

• Increasing funds available for athletic scholarships by four-fold to $1.6 million during the 2006-07 and 2007-08 academic years; these investments will enable WSSU to comply with NCAA Division I guidelines by granting the equivalent of at least 50 full-time athletic scholarships beyond those awarded for football and men’s and women’s basketball. • Expanding the Athletic Department staff by 15, including nine full-time and six part-time positions; new hires will include both coaches and administrative personnel. “All Voices Heard” Board approval of the plan completed an exhaustive review and planning process that began in April 2003. Two task forces chaired by Dr. Percy “Chico” Caldwell, WSSU’s Director of Athletics, evaluated all aspects of the university’s athletics programs, including facilities, budgets, conference affiliation and level of competition, as well as the feasibility of and preparedness for advancement to NCAA Division I competition. Next, they developed recommendations that defined that plan. The broad-based committees included WSSU studentathletes, students, alumni and administrators, as well as renowned intercollegiate athletic officials, local business leaders, and Winston-Salem city government officials. “Successfully achieving NCAA Division I status, and then competitive excellence at this high level, will require passionate support from everyone in the WSSU family and our local community,” Caldwell explained. “We begin reclassification with confidence, knowing that voices of all WSSU stakeholders have been heard, and that our plan addresses their aspirations, needs, and concerns.” Five-Year Process After submitting its formal application to the NCAA, WSSU entered into an “exploratory period” that spanned the 2005-06 academic calendar and athletic seasons. In this phase, the university continued to evaluate progress toward compliance with Division I requirements while retaining an option to end the process and remain a Division II member. Following completion of the exploratory phase in 2006, WSSU demonstrated compliance with NCAA Division I guidelines for academic admissions standards, number of sports programs, gender equity, and financial aid. The school also submitted a strategic plan which they must update in the three successive years. In 2009-10, the fifth and final year of the process, WSSU will host a certification visit by NCAA officials and begin full participation in all Division I championships including men’s and women’s basketball.

he Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) will expand its membership to 12 members this year, as the league voted to admit Winston-Salem State University into the league beginning in 2007-08 academic year. “We are elated to welcome Winston-Salem State into the MEAC family”, said Commissioner Thomas. Obviously we think that WSSU is an outstanding academic institution with an excellent athletics program.” Winston-Salem is in the third year of its reclassification from Division II to NCAA Division I status. WSSU will begin a full MEAC schedule in all sports beginning this season (2007-08). However they will not be eligible for MEAC Championship play until 2010-11. Winston-Salem Director of Athletics, Dr. Chico Caldwell, explained how the move to the MEAC is one of several steps the institution is making in their transition to the next level. “First of all, as we prepared for the years ahead, and the move to Division I, one of the keys to the puzzle was membership in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference,” said Dr. Caldwell. “We felt that the opportunity to be a member of the MEAC would afford us a way of rekindling several of our longstanding rivalries and establishing others, and we are happy and pleased that the vote has gone in our favor and we look forward to our future competition in the MEAC. The addition of Winston-Salem State marks the first expansion for the MEAC since 1997, when Norfolk State University became the 11th member of the league (Hampton University joined in 1995). WSSU becomes the second MEAC institution located in the state of North Carolina and the third in the Carolinas, joining North Carolina A&T State University (Greensboro) and South Carolina State (Orangeburg). “Our goal is to become a strong and viable member of the MEAC in order to represent well within the conference, both regionally and nationally,” Dr. Caldwell added. “We truly believe that the MEAC is value-added to the direction of both WSSU and the WSSU Department of Athletics. Everyone here at WSSU, our alumni and supporters are truly excited about this opportunity.” About the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) The MEAC is a Division I conference comprised of 12 historically black colleges and universities located across the Atlantic coastline. The league, established in 1970, is located in the Town Center of Virginia Beach, Virginia in the Armada Hoffler Tower.

sports highlights The MEAC has enjoyed great success over the years in athletics. Currently, the league has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men’s basketball (since 1981), women’s basketball (since 1982) , I-Championship Subdivision football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994).

OVERVIEW The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, an NCAA Division I Conference, is in its 38th year of operation heading into the 2007-2008 academic school year. Housed in the Armada Hoffler Tower at the Town Center of Virginia Beach, Virginia, the MEAC is currently made up of 12 (with the addition of WSSU in 2007-08) outstanding, historically black institutions across the Atlantic Coastline: Bethune-Cookman College, Coppin State University, Delaware State University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, Norfolk State University, North Carolina A&T State University, South Carolina State University and Winston-Salem State University. The MEAC has enjoyed great success over the years in athletics. Currently, the league has automatic qualifying bids for NCAA postseason play in baseball (since 1994), men’s basketball (since 1981), women’s basketball (since 1982) , I-Championship Subdivision football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994). HISTORY In 1969, a group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, NC to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference based along the Atlantic coastline. A number of representatives from different institutions joined the steering committee in a two-day discussion about the new conference. Seven of these institutions agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference: Delaware State College, Howard University, University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina Central University, and South Carolina State University. The MEAC headquarters remained in Durham, NC until 1981, moving to Greensboro March 26, 1982. In August 2005, the MEAC relocated to its current location in Virginia Beach, VA. The league was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971. In 1978, the MEAC selected its first full-time commissioner, Kenneth A. Free, and the following year, expanded to nine schools with the admission of two Florida schools: Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University. The MEAC operated with nine schools until 1985 when Coppin State College was admitted. The final expansion, prior to the agreed-upon addition of WSSU, occurred in the ‘90s with the inclusion of Hampton University in 1995 and Norfolk State University in 1997. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified Division One by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the following month, received an automatic berth in the NCAA Division I Basketball Championship.

• Bethune-Cookman earned the league’s first-ever at-large bid into the NCAA Softball Tournament in 2005. The Lady Wildcats went on to defeat Florida, Central Florida (UCF), and South Florida (USF) to win the Florida Regional in Gainesville, the first time any MEAC school has won an NCAA Regional. B-CC ended its remarkable 2005 season with the leagues’ first-ever ranking in the final softball polls, reaching No. 18 in the NSCA/USA Today Coaches poll and No. 23 in the USA Softball/ESPN.com Poll.

Bowman Gray Stadium

Bowman Gray Stadium during a Winston-Salem State University football game. For football, Bowman Gray Stadium can accommodate over 18,000 rowdy fans.

The Winston-Salem State University football team plays its homes games in the friendly confines of nearby Bowman Gray Stadium. Bowman Gray Stadium is owned by the city of Winston-Salem and is located one block from the Winston-Salem State University main campus. The stadium holds 18,000 fans for exciting Winston-Salem State Rams football games each fall. For concerts and special events, Bowman Gray Stadium holds more than 25,000 fans. Every Saturday night from spring until football season in the fall, Bowman Gray features the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series. Seating is available for 20,000 race fans, with most races selling out. Races begin at 8:00 pm every Saturday evening, with gates opening at 6:00 pm. Bowman Gray Stadium and Winston-Salem State University football are both local legends that attract multitudes of fans on a regular basis. The Rams have been playing at Bowman Gray stadium since the 1946 season and have amassed a record of 39-23-1 at home since Head Football Coach Kermit Blount took over as Head Coach of the Rams in 1993.

The stadium houses a natural grass field and an impressive 3,748 square-foot, dual-level, press box. A new $5.1 million fieldhouse is nearing completion as construction began following the 2006 football season. The old fieldhouse which stood at Bowman-Gray Stadium for the better part of two decades was removed and a new, state-of-the-art 20,992 square foot athletic fieldhouse is slated for a grand-opening on November 1, 2007. The five million dollar building was designed by Carlos Espinosa of Thomas H. Hughes Architecture, P.C. and is being built by Triad Builders of King, North Carolina under the guidance of Project Manager Aric Bullington and Superintendent Doug Boelsche. The fieldhouse will house all of WSSU’s football, sports medicine, and athletic administration offices as well a pair of athletic communications offices, two skyboxes, and over 4,000 square feet of meeting space.

C.E. Gaines Center / LJVM Coliseum

The outside of the CE Gaines Center on a fall afternoon.

This picture displays the CE Gaines Center during a home game. The picture proves how hostile an environment the Gaines Center is for opposing teams.

The Clarence E. Gaines Center, known to most as “The Gaines Center” is the primary site in which the Winston-Salem State University men’s and women’s basketball teams compete. It serves as not only a competition site, but as the primary practice facility for both the Rams and Lady Rams, in addition to being one of the home sites for the WSSU women’s volleyball team. What was once considered to be “state of the art” is now deemed too small for the larger than capacity crowds that both the men’s and women’s basketball teams generate. While the Gaines Center seats over 3,100 persons, the majority of games have sell-out attendance. The Gaines Center is a very hostile place for visiting teams to play, and the Rams and Lady Rams very seldom lose in its friendly confines amassing a home winning percentage near .700 for the last decade. The playing surface, constructed of premium quality hard wood,

is resurfaced every year to optimize playing conditions. When fans pack into the Gaines Center to watch WSSU take on opposing teams, the gymnasium becomes a sea of raucous fans, and the temperature inside rises to nearly unbearable levels. Originally planned to be a classic Division II arena, the Gaines Center was constructed in 1971 and hosted its first basketball contest in November of that same year. Named after legendary WSSU basketball coach and the NCAA’s fifth winningest coach ever, Clarence E. Gaines, and adorned with rows of championship banners hanging from the ceiling, the Gaines Center is a testament to the tradition and history that is Winston-Salem State basketball. Plans for a new 6,500 seat basketball arena/convocation center are in development with construction slated for the 2008-09 academic year.

LJVM Coliseum

One of the newest arenas in the MidEastern Athletic Conference, and one of the most beautiful basketball facilities in the country is the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum (14,665). The facility serves as the part-time home of Winston-Salem State University basketball. Though the facility is owned by the city of Winston-Salem, with the major tenant being the cross-town Demon Deacons of Wake Forest University, the Rams and Lady Rams play a large portion of their home schedules at the LJVM Coliseum every season.

Since its opening in 1989, the Joel Coliseum has hosted many nationally known entertainment acts, a wide variety of university and community affairs, and a number of professional and amateur sporting events that have brought the focus of the entire country to the city of Winston-Salem. The coliseum is owned and operated by the city of Winston-Salem, and only through a cooperative effort from civic and corporate leaders did the facility become a reality.

Lawrence Joel Veterans’ Memorial Coliseum


Lawrence Joel Coliseum Joel Veterans’ Memorial Coliseum Timeline • November 1984 - Dr. Thomas Hearn, the president of Wake Forest University, pledges $2.5 million from the school toward construction of a new coliseum by the City of Winston-Salem. • March 1985 - The 56-member Citizens’ Coliseum Committee, appointed by Mayor Wayne Corpening, endorses a plan to build a 14,000-seat arena, with a 3,500-seat annex for ice hockey, public iceskating and the Dixie Classic Fair for a total of $24 million. • June 1985 - A bond referendum to raise $20 million for construction of a coliseum and annex is passed by Winston-Salem voters by a margin of between 4 to 1 and 5 to 1. • October 1985 - The city chooses Ellerbe Associates of Minneapolis as chief architect for the coliseum project Ellerbe’s portfolio includes the University of Kentucky’s Rupp Arena and Notre Dame’s Athletic and Convocation Center. Ellerbe announces that a Winston-Salem architectural firm, Hines-Northup-Ersoy, will serve as associate architect on the project. • November 1985 - The Triad Vietnam Veterans Association proposes that the new coliseum be named for Lawrence Joel, a Congressional Medal of Honor winner from Winston-Salem who died in February 1984. • February 1986 - The Board of Aldermen votes to name the new coliseum the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in honor of Lawrence Joel and all Forsyth County veterans who lost their lives in armed conflict. • March 1986 - Ellerbe Associates releases its design for the coliseum and estimates total construction costs for the building at $26 million. • November 1986 - The city asks for construction bids. • March 1987 - The city awards building contracts. P.J. Dick Contracting of Pittsburgh, Pa., which submitted a bid of $14.1 million, is named the general contractor. Another $6 million in contracts is awarded to firms from Charlotte, Greensboro, Wilson and Burwick, Me. • April 23, 1987 - Ground is broken and construction begins on the coliseum, which will sit just north and east of the old Memorial Coliseum, in an area that is part of the parking lot and the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds. • December 1987 - City officials announce that the proposed annex building will cost $8.35 million, twice as high as the city’s first estimate. It will contain 80,000-plus square feet, instead of the 55,000 square feet originally planned.

A wonderful basketball facility, the LJVM Coliseum has played host to the CIAA Basketball Championship and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship First and Second Rounds (1993, 1997, 2000 and 2007). It also played host to a prestigious Davis Cup tennis match between the United States and India. The facility hosted the first and second rounds of the 2007 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship in March of 2007 marking the fourth time that the arena has hosted this event. Lawrence Joel Coliseum was actually almost two decades in the making. Twice during the 1970s (1976 and 1979), the voters of WinstonSalem rejected bond proposals that would have led to the replacement of the aging memorial coliseum. In December of 1984, however, the process was renewed again, and this time the plan was approved. A citizen’s committee determined the best size for the proposed facility, as well as a plan for an adjacent annex that could be used to supplement the calendar of events anticipated. That annex, referred to as the LJVM Coliseum Annex, is used by the Rams for basketball in addition to the C.E.

Gaines Center and the LJVM Coliseum. The total cost for the facilities was estimated at $26 million. The new coliseum was named for Lawrence Joel, the only native of Winston-Salem, NC who has been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest combat award. Joel, an Army medic who passed away in 1984, was recognized for saving the lives of 13 fellow soldiers during a Viet Cong attack north of Saigon in 1965. Although twice wounded in the legs by enemy machine gunfire, Joel crawled across the battle area for more than 24 hours, administering aid to his comrades. Nearly 500 other Forsyth County veterans who gave their lives for their country in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Grenada Invasion, and the Persian Gulf War are also honored in the unique memorial at the entrance of the coliseum. Ground was broken on April 23 of 1987, and work was completed on August 28, 1989 with a dedication ceremony that officially announced the opening of what now is the LJVM Coliseum Complex.

• March 1988 - The city hires Ronald R. Morgan, a Charlotte architect, to study plans for the annex and to determine if it would be feasible to renovate Memorial Coliseum or if part of the structure could be used as part of the new annex. • March 1988 - The city sends invitations to 5,000 artists and art galleries to submit a resume and slides of their work if they’re interested in designing the memorial at the coliseum. Work begins in studying the designs of artists. • June 1988 - The Board of Aldermen approves building the annex, which will seat 3,588 for ice hockey, and demolishing Memorial Coliseum. Completion of the new building is scheduled for the spring of 1991. • November 1988 - The Board of Aldermen accepts a memorial designed by James Ford, a New York artist. It will consist of individual markers outside the entrance and a memorial inside the lobby. A poem entitled “The Fallen” is to be engraved on the wall of the interior memorial. • March 1989 - The Board of Aldermen agrees to name the coliseum’s press room the Gene Overby Press Room, in memory of Gene Overby, the longtime WSJS announcer and “Voice of the Deacons,” who died March 30, 1989, after a long battle with cancer.

2006-07 WSSU Athletics in Review The 2007-08 athletic season at Winton-Salem State University was a year that was full of unique and exciting challenges for the student-athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators as the Rams and Lady Rams welcomed the second year of the transition to the highest level of intercollegiate athletic competition at the NCAA Division I level. A storied program of athletic excellence, one that has captured 42 conference titles and one national championship, the Rams and Lady Rams continued to lay the foundations upon which the WSSU Department of Athletics will build future Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference success. Scheduled to become a full-time member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 2007-08, the Rams and Lady Rams spent the 2006-07 season as an NCAA Division I Independent thus enabling WSSU coaches and student-athletes to travel the nation playing some of the NCAA’s most storied athletic programs. Increased national exposure, invaluable experience, and team bonding helped the Rams and Lady Rams to countless successes on the fields and courts of play in 2006-07 as Winston-Salem State University student-athletes erased all doubts about their ability to compete at the Division I level. The 2006 fall season offered many new challenges for the Winston-Salem State Lady Rams volleyball team and the team responded with the tenacity and competitive spirit that has become a trademark of Winston-Salem State University Athletics. The Lady Rams faced some of the best competition in the southeast facing such powers as Providence College, North Carolina A&T, UNC-Wilmington, The Citadel, High Point University, and Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference runners-up Maryland-Eastern Shore. Though saddled with a 2-34 overall record, the Lady Rams demonstrated their heart posting a pair of five-set wins, defeating Fayetteville State at home and taking a road win at Savannah State. It was the Lady Rams’ young guns that led the way in 2006 with the WSSU freshmen and sophomores dominating the team’s statistics. Sophomore Valentina Pushkina led the way for the Lady Rams placing in the team’s top three in nearly every statistical category. She led the team in assists (572), was third on the team in kills (145), was second on the team in digs (168), was second in total blocks (36), and was second on the team in service aces (44). Through their heart and determination, the 2006 Lady Rams have written another great chapter in the history of Winston-Salem State University Athletics. The men’s cross country team earned three top 10 finishes in 2006 as they secured a fourth-place finish at the UNC-Pembroke Cross Country Invitational to open the season, added an eighth place finish at the Old Northstate Championships, and recorded a fifth place performance at the seasonending North Carolina Central University Invitational. The WSSU men also recorded an 11th place finish at the Wingate Invitational, an 18th place finish at the Greensboro Cross Country Invite, and an impressive 26th place finish in the largest cross country invitational of the season in Orlando, Florida as WSSU secured an impressive finish at the Walt Disney World Cross Country Classic. The successes of the men’s cross country program were only compounded by their female counterparts as the Lady Rams’ cross country team captured five top-15 finishes and earned three top-10 finishes in 2006. The WSSU women opened the season with a fifth-place finish at the UNC-Pembroke Cross Country invitational, added a fifth place finish at the Old Northstate Championships and earned an event championship as they cruised to a first-place finish at the North Carolina Central University Cross Country Invitational to close the season. The ladies added to their impressive finishes with a 12th place performance at the Wingate Invitational and an 11th-place finish at the Greensboro Cross Country Invite where Irene Jeptolo broke her own WSSU school record as she completed the 5K course in 18:49.6 as she placed fourth in the event, only nine seconds off of the lead pace. The Winston-Salem State University women’s bowling team completed the fifth season of competition in program history in 2006 as they continued to put in place the pieces of a future championship puzzle.

2006-07 WSSU Athletics in Review The Lady Ram bowlers competed well during a grueling four-month schedule that saw WSSU travel the east coast as they competed against many of the nation’s top women’s bowling programs. WSSU visited the state of Florida twice, traveled to Norfolk, Virginia, road-tripped to Maryland, and twice bowled in their home state of North Carolina without ever hosting a home match as the Lady Rams spent the entire season away from home. Coupled with the travel schedule, the Lady Rams faced many of the nation’s most successful programs, none of which was more powerful than the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore Lady Hawks whom WSSU would compete against six times in the 2006-07 season. The Lady Hawks, a two-time NCAA Championship participant and the 2007 NCAA title runners-up would again take notice as the Lady Rams, a program that competed as one of only eight national finalists in the inaugural NCAA women’s bowling championship in 2004, continues to build a national-caliber program as they prepare for MEAC membership next season. When anyone thinks of the fall season at Winston-Salem State University, one’s mind immediately shifts to football, one of the most storied athletic programs at WSSU. The 2006 season was another in a long line of history-making years for the Rams’ gridiron gang as Winston-Salem State rushed their way to a 4-7 record versus many of NCAA Division I-AA’s most powerful programs. Despite the impressive 4-7 record, 14th-year head coach Kermit Blount refused to rest on the laurels of current and past success as he continued to solidify the strong WSSU football program as WSSU looks poised to prove ready for their inaugural season in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 2007. As always, basketball season proved for another exciting winter at WSSU. The WSSU women, under the guidance of head coach Dee Stokes turned in an impressive first season at the Division I level. There is a lot to be said about the Winston-Salem State University Lady Rams’ 2006-07 season. Though the team had a number of rough spots along the way that would have forced many teams to accept losses and failures, the team never gave in and showed a determination that lasted for the entire season. The team’s determination was shown in the squad’s stellar finish to the year. In a season that constantly pointed towards the future, the Winston-Salem State Lady Rams found tremendous success right away during the team’s 8-21 run. Playing arguably the toughest schedule in team history, the Lady Rams’ hard work and dedication led to a number of quality wins and some fantastic performances by a Lady Rams squad that had many chances to quit. The Lady Rams went into some of the toughest arenas in the ACC facing #2 North Carolina at Carmichael Auditorium, Georgia Tech at Gwinnett Arena, and facing the Demon Deacons of cross-town Wake Forest at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Carter led the way for the Lady Rams with a 13.2 points per game average and a 10.1 rebounds per game rebounding average for the season. Heading into the season, Carter had already surpassed the 1,000-point mark and continued her strong play into the 2006-07 season, her final season as a Lady Ram. She did not disappoint, surpassing the 1,000-rebound plateau as well. For her career, Carter totaled 1,451 points and pulled in 1,005 rebounds. For her career, Carter played in 111 games with 105 starts. The men’s basketball team was arguably the most battle-tested team on campus during the 200607 athletic season. The Rams welcomed a new coaching staff, new players and a new NCAA Division I classification as they made the unprecedented leap to competition on the nation’s most challenging stage. The Rams welcomed head coach Bobby Collins, a proven winner who has earned a pair of MidEastern Athletic Conference championships as a head coach and countless conference titles as a top assistant as Collins led a team that returned only seven lettermen and welcomed eight newcomers. Collins and the Rams wasted no time in getting down to business in 2006-07 as the Rams were faced with one of the most challenging schedules in the nation, a schedule which boasted road games versus national championship contenders Kansas and Georgetown and saw the Rams take to the court versus eight teams that competed in the NCAA postseason.

2006-07 WSSU Athletics in Review The Rams traveled over 25,000 miles in 2006-07 and faced 27 unique opponents from 15 different conferences as the road-tested WSSU men visited 15 states and three time zones in their first year of competition at the NCAA Division I level. The Rams burst onto the national scene as they made three television appearances and secured five impressive victories in a season that was filled with 23 road games. WSSU secured wins over Anderson University, Ferrum College, Norfolk State, Bethune-Cookman and Columbia Union College and suffered near-miss defeats at Georgia State University, at Akron, at Morgan State, at South Carolina State and at Wake Forest as they dropped seven contests by 10-points or less en route to a 5-24 record. Despite having only five wins on the season, the Rams’ future looks extremely bright as only three seniors depart from the program and Collins looks forward to the return of a plethora of young talent. The men’s and women’s basketball teams were not the only athletes at WSSU burning up the hardwood in the winter of 2006-07 as the WSSU Cheerleading squads continued to show why they are the pride of Historically Black Colleges and University’s nationwide. The WSSU cheerleading teams, consisting of junior varsity and varsity squads as well as a pair of Ram mascots, had a successful 2006-07 year in which they accomplished many outstanding things. In addition to cheering on the football and basketball teams of WSSU, the cheerleaders advanced to new heights in cheerleading and stunting, starting with their second appearance at the Universal Cheerleading Association camp at the University of Tennessee. In addition to their on-court and on-field activities the cheerleaders also participated in a wide variety of community outreach programs working with elementary and middle school kids and the disabled and elderly in the triad. WSSU Cheerleaders appeared at many events, including, but not limited the “Youth Crime Watch & Prevention Forum”, the “Donate Life Walk”, “The Salem House”, the Diggs Elementary and Walkertown Middle schools and the Triad Area Pop Warner football programs, in addition to working camps and clinics for the Burlington/Alamance county schools. The season’s high-point would be when the WSSU Cheerleaders hosted, worked and taught the Triad High School Cheer Competition at the C.E. Gaines Center on Saturday, April 21, 2007. The WSSU Cheerleading teams, under the guidance and tutelage of coaches Joevanne Estrada and Latoya Whitefield and Director of Cheerleading Operations, Lori Dobbins, continue to bring a source of pride to Winston-Salem State University. The spring of 2007 again proved to be a time of athletic success for the Rams and Lady Rams as softball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis and outdoor track and field continued to achieve at the highest level. Continuing in a long running legacy of athletic excellence that has included five conference championships, the 2007 Winston-Salem State Lady Rams carried on the tradition of great softball play this season, making their presence felt in their second season of NCAA Division I play. Though the team struggled with injuries significantly shortening the Lady Rams’ roster, the team made up for the shortage in numbers with an overage of heart and determination. The team’s efforts this season have sent a statement to their future conference competition with Winston-Salem State joining the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference next year. The Winston-Salem State Rams tennis team battled their way through a tough 2007 season that saw the team become road warriors. The young Rams squad was truly battled-tested, facing some of the toughest competition in mid-major collegiate tennis. Highlighting the team’s efforts this season was their 5-2 win over North Carolina Wesleyan on February 16, 2007. The Rams won the doubles play as well as four singles matches to take the road victory. The season was a tough one for the Rams, but laid the foundation for a program on the rise. The 2007 women’s tennis season offered a tough road for the Winston-Salem Lady Rams as the team had to face one of its toughest schedules in recent history. The Lady Rams found little comfort at home facing just two teams in Winston-Salem, but hitting the road to face 17 of the team’s 18 opponents.

 40 


2006-07 WSSU Athletics in Review Highlighting the Lady Rams’ season was a 5-1 win over Savannah State at the Bulldog Tennis Center on the campus of South Carolina State University. After winning the doubles point, the Lady Rams went on to win four of the five singles matches to take the 5-1 victory. The lessons learned during the 2007 season will be a great building block for the future of Lady Ram tennis in years to come. The 2007 Rams and Lady Rams track & field teams headed into the 2007 season with something to prove and as the competitors that were left behind can attest, the team proved its point beyond a shadow of a doubt. The Rams and Lady Rams took the track against some of the best track & field teams in the nation including taking the field at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Wake Forest, and North Carolina A&T. Highlighting the team’s efforts this season were the men’s and women’s sprint relay teams that captured the headlines on numerous occasions this season. During the season, the team has left behind teams from East Carolina, Virginia Commonwealth, Coastal Carolina, and a host of other nationally-ranked intercollegiate athletic institutions. The WSSU sprinters have been solid all year long with sophomore Wykeitha Barnett leading the way for the Lady Rams while senior Gerrod Sidbury led the way for the Rams. Barnett had a great indoor season finishing 10th in the women’s 60m dash with a season-best time of 7.83 seconds in the finals of the event. She had her best performance of the outdoor season close to home when she ran a 00:12.16 at the Wake Forest Open. Sidbury led the way for the Rams winning the men’s 400m dash at the Father Diamond Invitational at George Mason. He went on to finish sixth at the Shamrock Invitational hosted by Coastal Carolina in Conway, South Carolina with a time of 49.30. His best time of the season came at the Wake Forest Invitational when he turned in an 11th place finish in the men’s 400m run in a time of 48.41. One of the team’s best efforts of the season came at the North Carolina A&T Aggie Relays when the Rams and Lady Rams notched numerous great finishes in the meet. Highlighting the fantastic season was the Rams 4x400m relay team that took first place at the North Carolina A&T Aggie Relays with a time of 3:21.06, leaving behind teams from North Carolina Central, St. Paul’s College, and UNC-Pembroke. The WSSU men’s golf team, a program with six conference championships in its trophy case continues to grow under the leadership of coaches Lester Carpenter and Robert Bethea as the men’s golfers rebuild a program that was re-born four seasons ago after a 14-year layoff. The Rams turned in a successful season as they made great strides during their eight-month long season that started in September and concluded the final week of May. Most impressive of all in 2006-07 was the play of senior golfer Josh Vogler. Vogler fired four rounds in the 60’s and the remainder of his rounds in the 70’s as he paved the way for the Rams’ successes. Vogler’s most impressive performance in 2006-07 was a season-best round of 68 in second-day competition at the seventh annual J. Ralph Hargett Memorial Intercollegiate Golf Tournament at the Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation. The 2006-07 athletic season was one of ups and downs at WSSU as the Rams and Lady Rams endured the growing pains of an athletic program on the rise at the Division I level. The season was one that was measured not in wins and losses but in improvement and achievement as the 200plus WSSU student-athletes helped to put their respective programs on the NCAA Division I map. Motivated and focused top-tier student-athletes, devoted, caring and knowledgeable coaches and athletic administrators and the support of the community and national alumni will continue to help the Rams and Lady Rams in their quest for MEAC and national titles in the years to come.

­­­2007-08 WSSU Basketball Season Outlook Overview: The Winston-Salem State University transition to NCAA Division I classification enters year three in 2007-08 and the Rams will benefit from a full Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference schedule. WSSU head coach Bobby Collins enters into his second season at the helm of the WSSU program where he will lead a talented group of upperclassmen and a squad of newcomers into the Rams’ first full season of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play. WSSU will benefit from the full MEAC schedule by playing 14 home contests, a stark contrast to a 2006-07 season which saw the Rams play in Winston-Salem, NC only six times. The Rams welcome back seven letter winners from last season and will welcome the addition of six newcomers as they try to fill the void created by the loss of the seven letter winners who departed following the 2006-07 season. WSSU will return all five starters from last season as the seven athletes whose services the Rams will be without this season were all reserves. A talent-laden group of hard working student-athletes, coupled with the tutelage of one of the most experienced, and largest, coaching staffs in WSSU men’s basketball history should once again combine to make the action on the hardwood exciting in 2007-08. Returning Starters (5) For the first time in more than a decade the Rams will return all five starters to the team. The core nucleus of head coach Bobby Collins’ team is intact as WSSU returns nearly 80% of the offense from a 2006-07 team that proved to be very competitive versus many of the nation’s top basketball powers. Sophomore guard Darius Floyd returns for his sophomore season at WSSU as he looks to improve upon a freshman campaign that saw him lead the Rams in scoring with 11.5 points per game. Floyd turned in a stellar freshman campaign where he appeared in 26 of the Rams 29 games while recording 16 starts including starting 15 of the Rams’ last 16 contests before being sidelined with a season-ending broken ankle with two games remaining in the season. Despite being a freshman, Floyd tallied 14 double-digit scoring performances and tied for the team lead with four 20-point scoring games as well as leading, or sharing the team lead in rebounding in four games. A speedy slasher with excellent one-on-one ability, Floyd is also one of the best shooters on the team as he hit nearly 38% of his shots last season. He will be looked to for his offensive playmaking in 2007-08 as the Rams enter into their first full season of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference league play. Joining Floyd in the backcourt is sophomore Brian Fisher. Another talented guard who saw significant time as a true freshman, Fisher is a shoot-first scorer who finished second on the team in scoring last season as he turned in a scoring average of 10.8 points per contest. Fisher appeared in 28 games for the Rams en route to recording 24 starts, the most starts of any freshman on the team. He capped the season with 13 consecutive starts and recorded 757 minutes of playing time en route to a freshman-best 303 points. The 19-year old Fisher led the Rams with 16 double-digit scoring games and tied for the team lead with four 20-point performances. No slouch on the glass, Fisher led the Rams in rebounding four times as he used his 6’2”, 178-pound frame to pull down nearly three boards per game.

­­­2007-08 WSSU Basketball Season Outlook Rounding out the returning backcourt for the Rams is fifth-year senior Roy Peake. A 5’11” guard from nearby Thomasville, NC, Peake is a true point guard who distributes the ball well as he looks to pass-first and shoot second. Peake heads into the season ranked third in career assists at WSSU with 369 helpers and he looks to record his fourth consecutive season with an assist to turnover ratio of at least 2-to-1. Peake has started 56 of the Rams last 58 games and has posted back-to-back seasons with season totals of at least 800 minutes of playing time. He will look to increase his offensive output in 2007-08 as the talented senior attempts to improve upon his 4.0 points per game scoring average. Joining the Rams’ talented starting backcourt is a formidable frontcourt comprised of Darrell Wonge and Jamal Durham, a pair of forwards that play much larger than their 6’6” frames would indicate. The pair of forwards posted nearly identical statistics last season as Durham edged Wonge in scoring by only one-tenth of a point as he recorded 8.1 points per contest. A local product and native of Winston-Salem, NC, Durham is an athletic marvel who appeared in all 29 games for the Rams and failed to start only two contests as he opened the season with 25 consecutive starts and closed the year riding a two-game start streak. Durham recorded 11 double-digit scoring games in 2006-07 and posted a pair of double-doubles, the most impressive of which came against the Southeastern Conference’s Auburn Tigers when he tallied 22 points and 13 rebounds. He will look to improve his rebounding average in 2007-08 as he looks to add to his career average of 4.1 rebounds per contest. An off-season spent in the weight room should help Durham to become and even more formidable force on the glass as head coach Bobby Collins tries to help Durham become even more well-rounded. Rounding out the starting five for the Rams is Darrell Wonge. The self-appointed “face of the program,” Wonge will be the leader on and off the court for the Rams in 2007-08. One of only two seniors (Roy Peake being the other) on the WSSU roster in 2007-08, Wonge attempts to cap a stellar four-year career at WSSU, a career in which he has scored 523 points over the course of three seasons. Following a freshman campaign in 2004-05 in which he scored only 2.1 points per game, Wonge has recorded back-to-back seasons in which he has averaged 8.0 points per game. A late-bloomer, Wonge closed out the 2007-08 season with a career-high 24 points at South Carolina State University in the final game of the year for WSSU. Darrell turned in eight double-digit scoring performances last season and led, or earned a share of the team lead in rebounds in eight contests. Wonge and the other returning starters will begin their first foray into Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play as they look to add to a long-standing tradition of basketball excellence at WSSU. Newcomers (6): In 2007-08, the Rams will return more than experience as they welcome the addition of six newcomers which include four true freshman, a transfer sophomore and a junior college transfer as Bobby Collins and his coaching staff continue to add height, speed, and ability to an already talent-laden roster.

­­­2007-08 WSSU Basketball Season Outlook The Rams will be blessed with the talent of Paul Davis, a 6’9”, 195-pound true freshman forward out of Clio, SC. The Marlboro County High School graduate was a two-time MVP selection in high school and an All-State, All-Region, and All-HoopZone team selection as he averaged 15.1 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. He may be the first true freshman to start his first game in a Rams’ uniform since Alleggrie Guinn in the 2002-03 season. Joining Davis as a newcomer in the WSSU frontcourt is 6’8”, 230-pound forward Alcius McIntoche. A native of Clayton, NC and a 2007 graduate of Clayton High School, McIntoche recorded 18.0 points and 11.2 rebounds per game and led the Comets to a 17-6 record en route to MVP honors. He will add much-needed size to the Rams’ frontcourt. Rounding out the frontcourt newcomers is Corey Morris, a 6’10”, 255-pound freshman center from Elizabeth City, NC. A graduate of Northeastern High School, Morris comes to WSSU with numerous accolades as he was an All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-State performer following a senior season in which he averaged 13.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Frontcourt depth is not the only addition to the Rams’ roster this season as Collins and his staff have added a trio of newcomers at the guard position as a true freshman, a sophomore transfer and a junior college graduate join the backcourt for 2007-08. The Rams will welcome the services of true freshman point guard Isiah Tucker, a 6’1”, 180-pound graduate of Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh, NC. A true gamemanager, Tucker averaged 10.0 points and 7.0 rebounds per game his senior season en route to All-Conference and All-State honors. Joining Tucker are a pair of transfers in Vaudrey “Max” Funderburke and Michael Puckett. Funderburke, a sophomore guard who stands 6’3” and weighs-in at 180 pounds brings with him one year of playing experience from Rockingham Community College. A two-time All-Conference award winner in high school, Funderburke is an athletic and tall guard that will provide depth for the Rams. Puckett, an athletic marvel is a 6’4” guard with exceptional athletic ability. A natural two guard, Puckett comes to WSSU after two years of playing experience at Clinton Junior College. A native of Richmond, VA, Puckett was an Honorable Mention AllAmerica selection in junior college. He will step in immediately and give the Rams not only height but experience at the guard position. Schedule: The Rams will benefit from 14 home contests in 2007-08 and will play a 15th contest at the LJVM Coliseum against cross-town rival Wake Forest. In direct contrast to last season, a season in which the Rams played only six home games, WSSU will play in front of home crowds on 15 occasions. The Rams will welcome a full slate of MEAC teams to their new permanent home at the LJVM Coliseum Annex as they host rivals South Carolina State, Morgan State, Delaware State, Maryland Eastern Shore and a host of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opponents. WSSU will play host to the Bulldogs of Fresno State, the Panthers of Georgia State and the Aggies of North Carolina A&T in a trio of highly-anticipated home games. In addition to hosting 14 contests, the Rams will make their first appearance at the Iowa State University season-opening Cyclone Classic on November 9-10, and will travel to the state of Kansas for the second consecutive season as they travel to Manhattan and face Kansas State University. A challenging schedule and full slate of MEAC opponents, coupled with a talent-laden roster of veterans and newcomers will make the 2007-08 men’s basketball season truly a year for the history books.

Winston-Salem State University Rams Basketball Coaching Staff


WSSU Basketball Coaching Staff

Bobby Collins ➤ WSSU Head Basketball Coach ➤ Second Season (5-24 At WSSU) ➤ Sixth Season (70-81 Overall) ➤ Eastern Kentucky University ’91

The 2007-08 season will mark Collins’ second year as the head coach of the Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team as he returns to the bench following a challenging 200607 season that saw the Rams post a 524 record against many of the nation’s best basketball programs. Heading into the 2007-08 season Collins has posted an overall head coaching record of 70-81 (5-24 at WSSU). Collins led WSSU to five wins in his first season on the bench for the Rams as he opened his inaugural season as head coach at WSSU with a new coaching staff, new offensive and defensive philosophies, and a brand new NCAA Division I classification. Under the tutelage of Collins the Rams faced one of the most difficult schedules in the country as WSSU played only six home games and recorded 23 road games against 14 difference NCAA conferences en route to logging over 25,000 miles of travel. Quality coaching and perseverance made history in 2006-07 as the Rams earned their first Division I win over a Division I program on January 18, 2006 when WSSU handed MEAC member Norfolk State University an 81-71 whipping in their own building in Norfolk, Virginia. WSSU continued to write history as they faced 25 teams for the first time in program history as the Rams took to the court versus storied programs at Georgetown, Kansas, Notre Dame, Auburn, Wake Forest, and UAB. Collins led the Rams against

four ranked opponents, three NCAA tournament participants (including Elite Eight honoree Kansas and Final Four participant Georgetown), as well as three NIT participants. No stranger to competition at the Division I level, Collins and the Rams performed well in the national spotlight as they made three television appearances and earned respect in 14 different states. Collins came to WSSU by way of Hampton University where he served as head men’s basketball coach for four seasons and was part of the Pirate’s basketball program for 11 years. In 2005-06 Collins led the Pirates to a 16-16 overall record and a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship, as well as earning HU a berth in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. During that championship run Collins was honored as the Outstanding Coach of the MEAC Tournament. Collins’ third year (2004-05) at the helm of the Pirate’s men’s basketball program saw Hampton make their second trip in three years to the MEAC Tournament championship game earning Collins MEAC Coach of the Year honors. His sophomore season with the Pirates, he led the Pirates to a 13-17 record and an 11-7 mark in the highlycompetitive MEAC. Under the tutelage of Collins, Hampton saw two players earn All-Conference honors.


WSSU Basketball Coaching Staff During his first season leading the Hampton University men’s basketball program Collins guided the Pirates to within six points of their third consecutive MEAC Tournament Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance. With a mark of 19-11 in his inaugural season, Collins became the winningest first-year head coach in the history of Hampton University basketball, surpassing Hall-of-Famer John McLendon’s mark of 17 victories that came during the 1952-53 campaign. Since making the move to Division I in 1995, the same year in which Collins became a part of the program, the Hampton University basketball program became the standard by which excellence is measured in the MEAC. The Pirates have won three Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championships and made three trips to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament. During the 2001 NCAA Tournament Hampton made history by becoming just the fourth 15th seed to defeat a No. 2 seed, overthrowing the Cyclones Iowa State University 5857. And although a host of individuals have played a significant part in the uprising of Hampton basketball, Bobby Collins is as responsible as anyone. Consequently, Collins was named the 14th head coach of the Pirates on April 26, 2002. Collins, who joined the Pirate family 12 years ago, has previously served as the Assistant Head Coach for the Pirates’ men’s basketball team. Prior to his promotion to head coach, he was responsible for recruiting, handling admission and financial matters, preseason conditioning, academics and community relations. Collins earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and management in 1991 from Eastern

Kentucky University (EKU), where he finished as a four-year letterman. While wearing the Colonel uniform, Collins was a member of the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) All-Freshmen Team and Honorable Mention All-OVC as a senior. Following his collegiate career, Collins played in the Helsinki, Finland Classic earning MVP honors. Collins’ coaching career began as a restricted earnings coach with the Old Dominion Monarchs (1994-95). Under the leadership of former Monarch Head Coach, Jeff Capel, Collins aided the Monarchs to a Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) championship and a first round victory over Villanova University in the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament. Prior to his stint at ODU, Collins served as an admissions counselor at Eastern Kentucky University from 1992-94 The son of two non-denominational ministers, Collins is the youngest of 10 siblings. He is a native of Southern Pines, North Carolina, where he graduated from Pinecrest High School and helped his squad to an 18-5 and 20-4 overall record during his junior and senior seasons. In 1984, he earned All-State honors and was conference Player of the Year. Collins, who was named WinstonSalem State University’s sixth head men’s basketball coach on September 5, 2006, helped the Rams make history last season as WSSU participated in their first year of Division I play. He continues to lead a historic program that has captured 10 CIAA titles, and the 1967 National Championship. A relentless recruiter, Collins and his staff has already secured National Letters of Intent from four Division I-caliber players as he prepares to help the Rams add a new chapter to the storied tradition of basketball at WSSU.

Rams in the Community Student-Athletes at Winston-Salem State University have full calendars: classes, labs and study groups, plus practices, workouts, and team meetings. Nonetheless, most WSSU student-athletes find time in their schedules to reach out to their community and prepare for life after their athletic careers at WSSU are over. The Rams and Lady Rams are extremely active in the community. From youth reading programs to after school activities, the student-athletes at WSSU are constantly giving back to their communities. CHAMPS/Life Skills CHAMPS (CHallenging Athletes’ Minds for Personal Success) was implemented in NCAA institutions beginning in 1994. The CHAMPS/Life Skills program was created to improve and enhance the student-athlete experience within their selected communities. The program was founded at Winston-Salem State University in 1998 and is under the guidance of Associate Director of Athletics/Senior Woman Administrator Tonia Walker. “The purpose of CHAMPS/Life Skills is to prepare student-athletes for their life after athletics,” says Tonia Walker, WSSU’s CHAMPS/Life Skills Director. “The student-athletes help to mentor youth in the community, thereby strengthening not only their bond with the community but the community’s bond with the students and athletes of WSSU.” The CHAMPS/Life Skills program has five commitments for the establishment of a well-rounded student-athlete. Those commitments include academics, athletics, career development, personal development, and community service. It is through those five areas that the program works to develop not only quality student-athletes, but also exceptional individuals. Student-Athlete Advisory Council CHAMPS/Life Skills offers student-athletes the opportunity to enhance their experience as Rams through leadership opportunities. In addition to community activities, the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program has a StudentAthlete Advisory Council (SAAC) that meets once a month to discuss issues dealing with the welfare of the student-athletes. The SAAC consists of one representative of every varsity sport at WSSU, with the exception of football which is represented by two studentathletes. Each team is guaranteed one seat on the Council.

2007-08 WSSU Basketball Uniform Choices The 2007-08 season marks the second year for the Rams at the NCAA Division I level and will continue to usher in a new age of basketball history for Winston-Salem State University. The transition from Division II to the nation’s highest level of intercollegiate athletic competition at the NCAA Division I level will require changes and improvements to nearly every facet of the basketball program, with the uniforms that the players wear being no exception. The Rams, as part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (starting in 2007-08), have partnered with world-renowned corporate entities Russell Athletic and Nike to help outfit their teams. As part of the partnership between Nike and Russell Athletic, the MEAC, and the 12 conference member schools, each institution receives complimentary uniforms from Russell Athletic and an allotment of footwear from Nike, the world’s most esteemed footwear brand. From its beginnings in 1902, Russell Corporation has prided itself on the quality and value of its products -and on its commitment to its employees and the communities where it operates. Russell has long been a company that is able to take advantage of changes in the marketplace, changes in technology, and changes in its products. Building on its heritage as an athletic company, Russell has become a global leader in the sporting goods industry with apparel and equipment for all levels of activity - from the playing fields of major colleges to the backyards of homes across the country. With its well-known brands such as Russell Athletic, JERZEES, Spalding, Moving Comfort and a variety of technically designed running shoes from Brooks Sports, Russell Corporation has the products to meet the needs of the serious athlete to the weekend warrior - and everything in between. That is why the Rams and all 12 members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, as well as over 500 other NCAA member institutions choose Russell Athletic for all of their uniform and apparel needs. The Rams, like all other college basketball programs in the NCAA, will wear light colored jerseys at home and dark colored jerseys on the road. The Rams will wear a scarlet red (PMS 199) away jersey with white taping for all away games. The dri-power jerseys will feature tackle-twill numbers on the front and back with nameplates emblazoning the back. The Rams athletic mark will be embroidered on the placket, and the MEAC logo will emblazon the left chest (starting with the 2007-08 season). WSSU’s home jersey will be a white Russell Athletic dri-power top with red taping. The home jersey is nearly the mirror opposite of the away jersey with tackle-twill numbers on the front and back and nameplates adorning the back. The Rams athletic mark will again be embroidered on the placket and the MEAC logo will emblazon the left chest (starting with the 2007-08 season). WSSU will also employ the use of a third, alternate jersey that will be worn for selected games both on the road and at home. WSSU’s alternate jersey will be a black Russell Athletic dripower top with red and white taping. The alternate jersey is a third-color copy of the away and home jerseys with tackle-twill numbers on the front and back and nameplates adorning the back. The Rams athletic mark will again be embroidered on the placket and the MEAC logo will emblazon the left chest (starting with the 2007-08 season). The footwear of choice for the Rams will be emblazoned with the world-famous Nike Swoosh. Nike, Inc. operates on six continents with suppliers, shippers, retailers and service providers employing close to one million people. The diversity inherent in such size is helping Nike evolve its role as a global company. Nike, Inc. is committed to an attitude whereby they see a bigger picture today than when they started, one that includes building sustainable business with sound labor practices. Nike, Inc. retains the zeal of youth yet acts on their responsibilities as a global corporate citizen. As a direct result of these future-minded business practices, Nike, Inc. has become the world’s largest supplier of footwear to the NCAA and currently holds a market share near 65%. The Rams will wear up to four different models of Nike footwear this season as WSSU will wear any combination of the Nike Air Zoom Huarache 2K4, the Nike Men’s Air Max Elite II TB, the Nike Men’s Air Zoom Huarache Elite II TB and the Nike Men’s Zoom BB.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Rams Fall To Fresno State 85-63 In Traveler’s Classic Day-One Action

WSSU Offense Sputters; Rams Fall To Anteaters 53-41

FRESNO, CA – Ja’Vace Coleman’s game-high 20 points led the Bulldogs of Fresno State University past the Rams of Winston-Salem State by the score of 85-63 at the Save Mart Center in day-one action from the 2006 Traveler’s Classic in Fresno, California on Friday evening.

FRESNO, CA – Despite trailing by only five points following the halftime intermission, the Rams of Winston-Salem State University couldn’t put the ball into the basket in the second half en route to falling in defeat to the Anteaters of the University of California-Irvine by the score of 53-41 on Saturday evening at the Save Mart Center during second-day action from the Basketball Travelers Classic.

The Bulldogs turned three consecutive turnovers by the Rams into eight points only 2:16 into the contest as Winston-Salem State University found themselves down early in front of the 10,422 fans in attendance. Following a 12-footer by Jamal Durham that gave WSSU their first points of the game, Coleman would single-handedly take the game over as he hit five consecutive three-point field goals over the course of Fresno State University’s next six possessions. “Coleman really didn’t give us much of a chance to get into the game, I looked up and we were down 165. We wanted to prevent a big first few minutes, and he didn’t allow that. We knew he could score and that he would look for his shot, but we didn’t know he could shoot like that. We had no idea that he was going hit all six of his first-half threes” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in his post game interview. Another successful three-point field goal by Coleman, his sixth and final made basket of the half would eventually push the Bulldog lead to 27-points with just over seven minutes left in the half, a deficit from which the Rams were never able to recover. Following halftime adjustments by the Rams, Winston-Salem State University controlled the second half of play with their intensity and execution as they outscored the host-team Bulldogs 35-34 en route to the 85-63 loss. “At halftime I really talked about our effort intensifying in the second half. We eventually played four freshmen, and they really stepped up the intensity. We were given a stat sheet at every four minute media time-out and I just told my team, I just want to win every four minutes. That’s what I told them and that’s what we did. We showed intensity, and I am proud of my guys for that.” Collins said. Unlike the Bulldogs who had played a pair of exhibition games prior to Friday’s game, the Rams, who were playing in their first game-action of the season, played with defensive intensity as they drew a teamrecord seven charges in the loss. Coleman led five Bulldogs in double figures with his 20 points. He was joined by four players who tallied 12 points each.

The Rams and Anteaters traded baskets for the better part of the game’s first 20 minutes as neither team led by more than four points until Michael Hunter’s three-pointer with 58 seconds remaining in the half put UC-Irvine up by seven points. WSSU junior forward Darrell Wonge answered Hunter’s bucket only 23 seconds later as he connected on a 16-footer to cut the Rams’ deficit back to only five points headed into the locker room at halftime. In what can only be described as an offensive struggle, the Rams and Anteaters combined for only six points over the course of the next 11 minutes of play as WSSU successfully converted only one field goal while UC-Irvine was held to only one field goal and a pair of free throws. Trailing 32-25, the Rams continued to execute their offensive system well, yet continued to have trouble converting their field goal attempts, at one point missing nine consecutive shots. The Anteaters’ offensive woes would eventually lighten as they mounted a 6-0 run that pushed their lead to as many as nine points with little more than five minutes to play. Another Wonge jumper ended the Rams’ offensive drought as WSSU pulled themselves back into the contest, down only seven points as it looked as though the Rams’ counter-attack would be successful. Much to the chagrin of WSSU fans in attendance, the two teams traded baskets for the contest’s final five minutes of play and the Rams’ hopes for a comeback victory were dashed as UC-Irvine secured their first victory of the season. Leading the way for the Rams was Darrell Wonge who tallied a game-high 17 points and narrowly missed recording his first double-double as a Ram as he finished with eight rebounds. Wonge was the only WSSU player in double figures. Darius Floyd chipped in with nine points in the loss. UC-Irvine was led by Patrick Sanders who was the only Anteater to score in double figures with 13 points.

WSSU was led by Jamal Durham’s team-high 16 points on 7-of-17 shooting from the field. Durham was joined in double-figures by Norman Carter who tallied 11 points in the loss. Newcomers Darius Floyd, David Moore, and Brian Fisher each recorded seven points in their WSSU debuts.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Wonge’s 15 Points Not Enough As Rams Fall To South Alabama 76-58

Rams Hammer Anderson (SC) 67-44, Cruise To First Win Of The Season

FRESNO, CA – Darrell Wonge’s 15 points, his second double-figure scoring night in a row, could not propel the Rams to a win on Sunday evening as they fell in defeat by the score of 76-58 to the Jaguars of the University of South Alabama from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA in final-day action from the Traveler’s Basketball Classic.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Freshman guard Brian Fisher led all scorers with 14 points as he helped propel the Rams of Winston-Salem State University to a 67-44 win over the Anderson University (SC) Trojans in men’s basketball action in front of 3,200 raucous fans at the C.E. Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, NC on Tuesday evening.

The Rams started slowly as they found themselves trailing the Jaguars by 10 points only five minutes into the game as the scoreboard favored South Alabama 14-4.

The Rams broke a three-game losing streak as they started the contest on a 7-0 run, never trailing in the game, easily cruising to a win over the Trojans.

The young Rams, behind the coaching of new WSSU head coach Bobby Collins, mounted a 23-13 run over the next 11 minutes of play to tie the game at 27-27 with only 3:17 to play in the half.

Winston-Salem State, under the guidance of head coach Bobby Collins who is in his first season at the head of the Rams’ program, used a high pressure, trapping defense that forced 28 Trojan turnovers that WSSU converted into 29 points.

“I think that we played hard. All three games we really left it on the floor. I’m very happy with, and excited about with that. South Alabama is a very talented team, and I would not be surprised if they are back in the NCAA Tournament again this year [like they were in 2005-06 after winning the Sun Belt title]. But we didn’t back down at all, and I am pleased with that effort” head coach Bobby Collins said. The Jaguars, a team that is fresh off of a 2005-06 Sun Belt Conference Championship and a berth in the 2006 NCAA Tournament, responded like a veteran team should and immediately closed the half on a 7-0 run capped by Demetric Bennett’s three-pointer as time expired to give USA a 34-27 lead headed into the halftime intermission. Second-half action saw the Rams cut the lead to as little as four points with 12:14 remaining in the contest as a Brian Fisher jumper made the score 47-43 in favor of the Jaguars. That is as close as WSSU would get for the remainder of the contest as South Alabama outscored the Rams 29-15 the rest of the way, ultimately handing WSSU the 76-58 loss. Leading the way for WSSU was Darrell Wonge who tallied 15 points and pulled down a pair of rebounds. He was the only Ram in double figures as Jamal Durham chipped in with nine points. Demetric Bennett led the Jaguars with 17 points as he led four USA players in double figures. Brandon Davis helped the South Alabama cause with 10 points and 11 rebounds in the win. “We are a team that is growing and we took some steps towards in growing this weekend. I am pleased with our effort and intensity. We just came up against some teams that were a little bit better than us. We are right there, so close, we have a few things we have to clean up, and we will be okay. Our lack of offensive rebounding hurt us, but I was very pleased with our intensity.”

“We knew exactly what we were going to see tonight. We knew that they had a relatively young team, and so do we, but we prepared a system to try to take advantage of their youth, absolutely we did. I usually let the guys play on offense a bit as long as they work hard on defense. We stress that defensive intensity, and it showed tonight, and paid dividends for us” Collins said in post game interviews. The Rams led by 15 points at the half as they held a 29-15 advantage after 20 minutes of play, despite only shooting 35.5% in the half. However, second-half action saw the Rams exploit their systematic inside-out game en route to dominating the remainder of the game en route to the 23-point win. “I don’t know what it is, but it took us a bit to get our inside post game going. We stress the two-for-one principle. We want to get the ball inside twice before we shoot from the outside. We got that going in the second half and in turn we generated lay-ups and got to the free throw line. That really cemented things for us” Collins said. Fisher led all scorers with 14 points as he hit six of his 13 field goal attempts, including a 33% night from behind the three-point arch. He was joined by Jamal Durham who tallied 13 points and four rebounds in the win as ten Rams recorded points in the contest.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Auburn Shoots 58 Percent From The Field As They Down WSSU Men 95-62

Four Players In Double Figures Not Enough As Rams Fall To Georgia State 94-87

AUBURN, AL – The Auburn University men’s basketball team shot nearly 58% from the field as they hit 33 of their 57 field goal attempts en route to a 95-62 win over the Winston-Salem State University Rams at the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum in Auburn, Alabama on Friday evening as they recorded their largest margin of victory in the Jeff Lebo head coaching era.

ATLANTA, GA – Despite 42 points from freshmen and four players in double-figures, the Rams could not overcome a tough Georgia State University Panther team on the road in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday afternoon as they fell in defeat by the score of 94-87 at the Georgia State University Sports Arena.

Despite a double-double from Jamal Durham that saw the sophomore forward record game highs of 22 points and 13 rebounds, the Rams shot only 33% from the field as Auburn, using a raucous home crowd advantage, earned the win to improve to 2-0 while the Rams dropped to 1-4 with the loss. Durham was joined by David Moore who tallied 12 points and six rebounds in the contest, including a pair of thunderous dunks, one of which came during a 6-0 Winston-Salem State University run in the second half of play. Six Tigers recorded double-digit scoring performances as Frank Tolbert led all Auburn players with 21 points and five rebounds in the win. He was joined in double-figures by Korvotney Barber and his 14 points as well as three other Tigers in double-digits. Auburn’s distinct advantage on the evening was in their hot shooting as they successfully converted 10 of their 21 three-point field goal attempts for a shooting percentage of 47.6% from behind the threepoint arch.

The Rams, playing in their fifth road game in a nine-day span, played full-court basketball will the Panthers for the entirety of the contest as the two teams combined for 181 points and took a total of 129 shots in an exciting end-to-end men’s basketball game between two young, athletic programs. The Rams and Panthers traded leads six times during the first half of play as the two teams tried to gain control of the swaying momentum. The Rams were sparked by a pair of freshmen during the game’s first 20 minutes as Darius Floyd and Brian Fisher combined for 20 of the Rams’ 42 points in the half. Fisher recorded seven points in the half while Floyd, who came off of the bench to play 11 minutes, turned in his best performance of the young season. Checking into the game in a relief role, Floyd hit five consecutive shots, including a trio of three-pointers as he recorded 13 points in just over four minutes of play to put the Rams ahead by as many as 10 points with 1:29 to go in the half. The Rams led the home-team Panthers by five points at the halftime intermission as WSSU found themselves ahead at the break for only the second time in six games. Georgia State used a second half of play in which they shot 62% from the field, hitting 16 of their 26 field goal attempts, to open up their largest lead of the game, a seven-point margin, a lead which they would never relinquish, en route to the 94-87 win. Winston-Salem State cut the lead to as little as three points with under two minutes to play in a bid to steal back a victory from the Panthers but solid Georgia State University shooting from the free-throw line iced the game and preserved the Panther’s first win of the 2006-07 season. WSSU was led by Brian Fisher’s career-high 22 points as he paced four Ram players in double figures. He was joined in double-digits by Darius Floyd (20 points), Rpy Peake (13 points), and David Moore (10 points). The Panthers were led by Rashad Chase’s game-high 24 points and 11 rebounds. The double-double marks the fourth game this season that the Rams have allowed a double-double performer. WSSU has lost all four of those contests. Chase was joined by Trae Goldston’s 22 points, Leonard Mendez’s 19 points and Lance Perique’s 17 points in the win.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Second-Half Eagle Rally Pushes Coppin State Past Winston-Salem State 81-56

Rams Shooting Struggles Continue As Georgia Southern Downs WSSU 70-41

BALTIMORE, MD – The Coppin State University Eagles used a 21-6 run to start the second half of play as they defeated the Rams of Winston-Salem State University in non-conference basketball action by the score of 81-56 at the Coppin Center on Tuesday evening.

STATESBORO, GA – The Georgia Southern University Eagles showed why they received an invitation to the NIT in 2006 as they jumped out to an 18-2 lead on WSSU and cruised the rest of the way en route to a 70-41 victory at Hanner Fieldhouse in Statesboro, GA on Saturday evening in men’s basketball action.

The Eagles, playing in only their second non-conference home game since December 4, 2002, earned their first win of the season behind Tywain McKee’s 20 points as he turned in an 8-for-14 shooting performance. The match-up, the first between the two schools, drops the Rams all-time record versus the Eagles to 0-1 overall.

Both teams struggled out of the gate, combining for seven turnovers and just eight points in the first 4:24 of play. But the Eagles turned it on after the first media timeout, scoring 12 straight points. In the game-opening run, the Eagles had six different players score, including receiving seven points from senior Donte Gennie (Tallahassee, Fla.).

The first half of play was a closely-contested affair as the two teams turned in nearly identical statistics as CSU led at the halftime intermission by only five points, ahead 29-24.

Georgia Southern held Winston-Salem State without a field goal for a nine-minute stretch as the Rams missed nine consecutive shots and committed five turnovers. Curtis Hines (Charlotte, NC) finally stopped the run with a trey at the 9:28 mark to make the score 18-5.

Second half action would not be nearly as kind to the Rams as WSSU ran into the proverbial “brick wall” as Coppin State came out of the locker room and mounted a 21-6 run, including an 11-0 stretch to cap the scoring outburst, over the first 5:45 of play as the Eagles increased their lead to 20 points at 50-30.

Up 24-9 with 4:33 remaining in the half, Georgia Southern scored eight straight points, capped off with two free throws from sophomore Anthony Marshall (Lake Worth, Fla.). Junior Ryan Hynes (Paso Robles, Calif.) converted an old-fashioned three-point play with just under four minutes left, and then converted a WSSU turnover into a lay-up.

A Darius Floyd free throw snapped the CSU run but the damage had been done as the Rams never recovered, eventually falling in defeat as WSSU dropped their sixth game of the season. Leading the way for the Rams was reserve guard Lowen Wray’s team-high 13 points on four-for-nine shooting including a two-of-four shooting display from behind the three-point arch. CSU was led by McKee’s 20 points as both he and Robert Pressey (12 points and five rebounds) recorded double-digit scoring performances. The loss drops the Rams to 1-6 on the year while the Eagles earn their first win of the season and improve to 1-3 with the victory. The defeat marks only the third time in his head coaching career that WSSU head coach Bobby Collins has fallen to Coppin State University as his all-time record versus the Eagles now stands at 5-3. Collins, who spent the last four seasons as the head coach at Hampton University, has come out on the losing end in the last three head-to-head match-ups with CSU head coach Ron “Fang” Mitchell after posting a flawless 5-0 mark to start his career.

Gennie gave the Eagles a 34-11 advantage with two seconds left, but Roy Peake (Thomasville, NC) fed Jamal Durham (Winston-Salem, NC) with an 80-foot pass to beat the buzzer for a 34-13 halftime score. GSU shot 48.1 percent (13-27) from the floor in the first half and held WSSU to 5-of-25 shooting (20.0%). Gennie led all scorers with nine points at the break. The second half was more of the same as the Eagles put up the first five points on the board, courtesy of a ‘3’ from junior Dwayne Foreman (Apopka, Fla.) and a lay-up by senior Jimmy Tobias (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.). A Tobias jumper put GSU up 30, 54-24, with 11:38 remaining and led by no fewer than 22 the rest of the way. Gennie finished with a game-high 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting, including 2-of-4 from 3-point land, and Tobias added 11. Roy Peake led the Rams with nine points and four assists in the loss. The loss marks the fourth straight defeat for the Rams’ and marks WSSU’s longest losing streak since an eight-game skid that came during the 1996-97 season, a year in which the Rams finished 15-13. The Eagles extended their streak of 26 straight home-opening wins and 19 straight non-conference home victories. The last time GSU lost a home-opener was Nov. 29, 1980, an 88-87 overtime decision to Austin Peay.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Bison Inside Game Too Much For Rams; Lipscomb Downs WSSU 62-46

Notre Dame Doubles-Up Rams 90-45 In South Bend

NASHVILLE, TN – The Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team was outsized on Monday evening in Nashville, Tennessee as the Bison of Lipscomb scored 32 of their 46 total points in the paint as they handed the Rams their eighth loss of the 2006-07 season by the score of 62-46 in front of 1,264 fans at Allen Arena.

SOUTH BEND, IN – Rob Kurz had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Colin Falls scored 13 as Notre Dame cruised to a 90-45 win over Winston-Salem on Wednesday night at the Joyce Center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in front of 8,067 fans in attendance.

Despite shooting 31% from the field during the first 20 minutes of play (nine of 29 field goals), the Rams held to a slim one-point lead headed into the locker room at halftime as WSSU led 21-20. The lead marked the Rams’ third halftime lead of the season.

Four players scored in double figures for the Irish (5-1). Russell Carter and Kyle McAlarney each scored 10 as Notre Dame won its fourth straight game.

Second half action started well for the visiting Rams as back-to-back three-point field goals by Darrell Wonge gave WSSU their largest lead of the game, a margin of seven points, as WSSU led the contest 27-20 with 18:01 remaining.

The Irish, who travel to play back-to-back games against Top 25 teams in the next week (No. 23 Maryland on Sunday and host No. 6 Alabama on Dec. 7), shot a blistering 57 percent from the field. Falls hit three 3-point shots and became the 45th player in Notre Dame history to score 1,000 points. Winston-Salem (1-9) led 3-0 to start the game, but the Irish responded with 10 straight points and never trailed again.

The Rams’ lead was short-lived as the Bison mounted a 10-1 run over the next four-and-a-half minutes as Lipscomb turned a seven-point deficit into a one-point lead. The lead would be one that the Bison would never relinquish en route to the 16-point victory.

Lowen Wray scored 12 points and Jamal Durham added 10 to lead the Rams, who played their sixth game in 13 days and are in their second year of a five-year transition to the Division I level from Division II where they spent 61 years.

The Bison mounted their second substantial run of the final half of play as a 12-2 run gave them what would prove to be an insurmountable 45-33 lead with 6:45 left to play.

“They did a very good job of executing. They turned a lot of our turnovers into points and I thought that played a major role. They are a very, very talented basketball team and they wore us down. They did what they were supposed to do and earned a win” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in post game interviews.

The Rams immediately answered back with a 10-2 run of their own to cut the lead to six points at 49-43 as it looked as though WSSU would get themselves back into the game. The comeback bid was not to be as the Bison answered with a 9-0 run to regain a 13-point advantage at 56-43 with 2:07 to play on back-to-back 3-pointers by LaKory Daniels as Lipscomb put the proverbial “nail in the Rams coffin”. Eddie Ard led the Bison in scoring with a game-high 19 points. Winston-Salem State placed four players in double figures in the game as Jamal Durham led with 16 points followed by Brian Fisher with 15 and Darrell Wonge with 10. Wonge also got the double-double with a game-high 11 rebounds.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Georgia Southern Hands WSSU Ten-Point Defeat At Home, 59-49

Mattis’ Triple-Double Leads Bulls Past Rams 63-43

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Missed opportunities were the downfall of the Rams on Saturday evening at the C.E. Gaines Center as they fell in defeat to the Eagles of Georgia Southern University by the score of 59-49 in front of over 3,200 fans in men’s college basketball action.

Winston-Salem, NC – McHugh Mattis’ (North Lauderdale, FL) recorded the second triple-double in the history of the Bulls’ basketball program as his 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 blocked shots led the University of South Florida past the Rams of Winston-Salem State University 63-43 at the C.E. Gaines Center on Thursday evening.

Winston-Salem State University, under the guidance of head coach Bobby Collins, played well in the contest, but the Rams had trouble converting in transition and missed several easy opportunities as the Eagles snuck out of Winston-Salem with their second win over WSSU this season. “They did a good job of putting the nail in the coffin up at their place, and we were very much aware of what they were going to do to us. They ran their stuff well. We had ample opportunities to get easy baskets and we didn’t finish tonight. We missed about five point blank lay-ups. We had our chances and we just couldn’t finish in the game” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in post-game interviews. First half action saw the Rams hit only 30.4% of their field goal attempts as WSSU found the back of the net on only seven of their 23 shot attempts during the first 20 minutes of play.

“He was like superman out there tonight,” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said of Mattis’ triple-double that helped to rally the Bulls from a one-point halftime deficit. Despite being undersized at every position, the Rams used an intense defensive effort to force 14 firsthalf USF turnovers en route to a 22-21 lead headed into the locker room at halftime. The first-half of play saw the Bulls dumbfounded as to how to contain WSSU sophomore forward Jamal Durham (Winston-Salem, NC) and freshman Darius Floyd (Gastonia, NC) as the duo tallied 10 points each , scoring all but two of the Rams’ first-half points. Second half action saw the Rams increase their slim one-point margin to as many as six points with 13:13 remaining in the contest as WSSU looked to be in control of the contest.

Georgia Southern jumped out to an early eight-point lead a little over seven minutes into the contest, eventually holding a margin that they would never relinquish.

Only 45 seconds later a Mattis dunk sparked a 19-0 USF run over the span of 5:03 seconds as the Rams watched their six-point lead turn into a 13-point deficit, one from which they would never recover.

Second half action would again see the Eagles use their interior size advantage and solid guard play to continue to keep the hard-charging Rams at bay.

The Bulls closed the contest on a 6-2 run to push their lead to the game’s final margin of 20 points as USF improves to 5-1 with the win. The Rams fall to 1-11 with the loss and have lost eight straight contests marking the first time since the 1996-97 season that WSSU has lost eight consecutive games.

The combination of All-Conference guard Donte Gennie’s 15 points, coupled with Louis Graham’s 14 points and eight rebounds helped to propel the Eagles to the victory, their fourth of the season and second over WSSU during the 2006-07 season.

Mattis led all scorers with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots as he tallied USF’s first tripledouble since Adrian Hillman recorded 13 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists versus Florida Atlantic University on December 4, 1996.

Leading the way for the Rams were Brian Fisher and Jamal Durham who each tallied 12 points in the losing effort.

Jamal Durham led the Rams with 13 points and three rebounds in the loss. Darius Floyd was the only other Ram in double-figures as he tallied 10 points.

“Their one through five guys are solid and they are a very good team and when you don’t take advantage of the opportunities that you get you don’t win, and that is what happened tonight.” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins commented.

“We are just one good mentally-focused game away from turning the corner and really doing something special,” Collins said in post game interviews.

Four Hoyas Score In Double Figures as Georgetown Defeats Winston-Salem State, 76-32

AKRON, OH – Despite leading midway through the second half of play, the Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team dropped a 79-67 decision to the University of Akron Zips at Rhodes Arena in Akron, Ohio on Saturday evening.

Washington, D.C. – Georgetown put four players in double figures and hit more than half its field goals for the third-straight game en route to a 76-32 win over Winston-Salem State in front of 2,228 fans at McDonough Arena Saturday night. It was the third-straight win for the Hoyas, who improve to 7-3 overall, while the Rams fall to 1-13 overall and have lost ten straight games.

The Rams were led by Curtis Hines’ season-high 20 points as he hit five of his seven three-point field goal attempts to lead all WSSU scorers. Darius Floyd tallied a career-high 18 points in the loss and Darrell Wonge scored in double-digits for the first time in six games as he recorded 14 points. WSSU shot 46.4% from the field in the contest and a season-high 68.8% from behind the three-point arch as the Rams connected on 11 of their 16 three-point field goal attempts. The loss drops the Rams to 1-12 on the season while the Zips improve to 6-1 with the win. The loss is Winston-Salem State University’s ninth consecutive loss and marks the most consecutive losses by a WSSU men’s basketball team since a 15-game streak that came during the 1991-92 season. The win moves the Zips’ win streak to six consecutive games.

The Hoyas tied the game on a Hibbert lay-in and took the lead for the first time on an Egerson putback. That was part of an 11-0 GU run over a span of 3:35 that was capped by a three from Crawford. A three from Curtis Hines pulled the Rams to within 11-7 and one from Floyd with 11:24 to play in the half made it 14-10.

Darius Floyd scored 20 points and Brian Fisher added 17 for Winston-Salem as the Rams continue to get production from young players.

Kansas surged to their 45-21 halftime lead, led by Wright’s 10 points, after shooting 57.6-percent and scoring 13 points off 12 WSSU turnovers. Second-half action was all KU as the Jayhawks pushed their lead to as many as 53 points, en route to securing the 94-43 victory. Junior forward Sasha Kaun scored a season-high 11 points, and freshman forward Darrell Arthur notched 13 points, four blocks and a career-high three steals. Freshman guard Sherron Collins added 11 points, while sophomore guard Mario Chalmers tied a career-high with eight assists to go along with his nine points. Winston-Salem State was led by Darius Floyd’s 17 points as he and Curtis Hines (10 points) were the only Ram players to tally double-figures in scoring. Floyd turned in a six of 17 shooting performance from the field including an impressive five of 10 shooting exhibition from behind the three-point arch. KU Junior guard Jeremy Case scored a season-high eight points, on 2-of-3 shooting from beyond the three-point line, as KU’s bench outscored Winston-Salem State’s, 40-19. The Rams did not help their own cause from the free throw line as the capacity crowd of 16,300 disrupted WSSU’s foul shooting ability as WSSU missed all but one of their 11 free throw attempts (11.1%). The loss drops the Rams to 1-14 overall while the Jayhawks improve to 9-2 on the season with the win.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews WSSU Men’s Basketball Closes Out 2006 With 8059 Loss At Towson

Yellow Jackets Sting Rams 97-46; WSSU Drops 14th Consecutive Contest

TOWSON, MD – The Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team closed out the 2006 portion of their schedule with an 80-59 loss to the Tigers of Towson University on Friday evening in Towson, Maryland.

Atlanta, GA – Anthony Morrow scored 24 points and Javaris Crittenton had 13 points and nine assists in Georgia Tech’s 97-46 victory over Winston-Salem State on Wednesday night. The Yellow Jackets (11-3), who jumped out to an early 7-0 advantage, never trailed after Morrow hit his first of seven 3-pointers giving Tech a 15-12 lead.

The loss moves the Rams to 1-16 on the season while the Tigers improve to 6-5 overall with the win. Winston-Salem State led in the contest only one time as the Rams held their largest, and only, lead of the evening just 2:08 into the game, ahead by three points. The Tigers then mounted a run which regained them the lead, one that they would never relinquish as they pushed their advantage to as many as 24 points with 41 seconds remaining in the contest. The Rams turned in another chilly shooting performance from the field as they hit only 23 of their 70 field goal attempts en route to posting a shooting percentage of 32.9% as WSSU drops to 0-13 on the season when shooting less than 40% from the field. Despite the loss, WSSU freshman guard Brian Fisher continues to impress as he recorded a career-high 27 points on 11 of 22 shooting from the field including a stellar five-of-nine performance from behind the three-point line as he led the Rams with 27 points and five rebounds.

Darius Floyd led Winston-Salem State with 15 points as he turned in a six-of-13 shooting performance from the field. The Rams (1-17) have lost 14 straight games, all of them outside of the State of North Carolina. Georgia Tech’s front line of Jeremis Smith, Ra’Sean Dickey and Mouhammad Faye combined for 30 points and 23 rebounds as they proved to be the difference-maker in what was a close contest in the early-going. Faye, a red-shirt freshman, made his first career start. The trio outsized the Rams’ front three by nearly five inches and 25 pounds at all three positions as the Yellow Jackets out-boarded Winston-Salem State by 16 rebounds. The Rams dropped to 0-16 on the season when being out-rebounded by their opponent. The Jackets improved to 156-9 against non-conference opponents at Alexander Memorial Coliseum with the victory. After losing its Atlantic Coast Conference opener at Miami last month, Georgia Tech will visit No. 23 Clemson (15-0, 1-0) on Saturday.

The Tigers were led by Gary Neal’s 26 points as he led four Tigers into double figures.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Morgan State Narrowly Escapes From WSSU; Rams Fall 53-50

Rams Snap Losing Streak; Defeat Ferrum College 77-56

BALTIMORE, Md – Brian Fisher’s three-pointer with six seconds to play did not find the mark as Winston-Salem State University’s bid to tie the game fell just short on Friday evening as the Morgan State University Bears snuck out a 53-50 win at Hill Field House in Baltimore, Maryland.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State University mens basketball team’s 15-game losing streak ended on Sunday evening as they defeated the Ferrum College Panthers by the score of 77-56 at the C.E. Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, NC.

The Rams (1-18) trailed by as many as 11 points to the Bears but refused to quit as they battled back to take a two-point lead late in the second half as they held a 50-48 advantage with four minutes to play in the contest.

The Rams would never trail in the contest as WSSU jumped out to a 19-5 lead only three minutes into the contest as the game’s outcome was never in doubt as WSSU earned their second win of the 200607 season.

However, the Bears held the Rams scoreless for the final four minutes of play as Morgan State mounted a game-clinching 5-0 run en route to the three-point, 53-50 victory.

Nine WSSU players recorded points during the first half of play as starter Darius Floyd (Gatsonia, NC) and reserve Curtis Hines (Charlotte, NC) scored 10 points each in the game’s first 20 minutes as the Rams raced towards a 13-point lead at 47-34 headed into the halftime intermission.

A Jamar Smith three-point play followed by another Smith jump shot and a Rogers Barnes’ free-throw catapulted the Bears to their third victory of the season and relegated the Rams to 1-18 on the season as WSSU recorded their 15th consecutive loss, tying a school record that was set during the 1991-92 season. The Rams were led by Brian Fisher’s 14 points as he and Darius Floyd (13 points) were the only two WSSU players in double-digits in scoring. WSSU also received six points from Norman Carter in the loss. The Bears were led by Ronald Timus who recorded 13 points in the win as WSSU allowed only one double-figure scorer for Morgan State.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Rams Earn First Division I Win Over A Division I Opponent; Defeat Norfolk State 81-71

Bison Shoot Nearly 70% As North Dakota State Downs Rams 87-63

NORFOLK, VA – History was made at Echols Hall in Norfolk, Virginia on Thursday evening as WSSU head men’s basketball coach Bobby Collins led his Rams to an 81-71 victory over the Spartans of Norfolk State University as Winston-Salem State earned their first victory over a Division I opponent in the history of WSSU’s Division I membership.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The North Dakota State University Bison shot a season-high 69.6% from the field as they ran past the Rams of Winston-Salem State University by the score of 87-63 at the C.E. Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, NC on Saturday evening.

The Rams, in their first season as a full-fledged Division I program following an NCAA exploratory season in 2005-06, came into Echols Hall on the campus of Norfolk State University and led for nearly 38 minutes en route to a convincing 10-point victory over a talented, and senior-laden, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference-leading, Norfolk State University men’s basketball team.

The Bison wasted no time in proving that they are every bit deserving of their impressive 123rd ranking in the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) as North Dakota State jumped out to an early lead against the Rams and never looked back en route to their 11th victory of the season as NDSU snapped WSSU’s two-game win streak in the process.

Norfolk State jumped out to an early 4-0 lead on a pair of mid-range jump shots before the Rams’ offense awoke and mounted a 14-2 run to pull ahead by eight points as WSSU opened up a lead that they would never relinquish.

The Bison, a team that has recorded impressive victories over Princeton, Marquette, Wisconsin-Green Bay, and Idaho, and last season recorded a road win over nationally-ranked Wisconsin, used a 34-of-49 shooting performance to defeat the Rams in front of over 3,200 fans at the Gaines Center.

WSSU pushed their first-half lead to as many as 16 points during a half in which the Rams hit eight three-point field goals.

A close game midway through the first half turned into a 12-point NDSU halftime lead as the Bison carried a 45-33 into the locker room at the intermission.

Norfolk State, a team that came into the contest sporting a 5-1 record versus Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference teams, mounted a run late in the half that cut the Rams’ lead to only a single point at 36-35 headed into the locker room at halftime.

Second half action saw the Bison increase their lead to 22 points with just over four minutes remaining, eventually pushing the cushion to a game-high 26 points with 2:13 remaining in the contest.

The Rams burst out of the locker room with a renewed sense of purpose following the intermission as WSSU increased a one-point lead to a game-high 20 points with a 24-4 run that encompassed the first 7:29 of the second half. NSU cut that lead to as few as six points late in the game before WSSU free throws preserved the victory as the Rams netted their first Division I win over a Division I opponent. The win moves the Rams to 3-18 on the season and drops the Spartans to 5-11 on the year. The victory is WSSU’s second consecutive win of the season as the Rams’ open up their longest win streak of the season. Leading the way for the Rams was Brian Fisher who tallied a team-high 20 points as he was one of three WSSU players in double-figures in the contest. Darrell Wonge and Jamal Durham recorded 16 and 15 points respectively. WSSU hit a season-high 15 three-point field goals and took a season-high 31 threes in the games, surpassing season marks for made three’s (11 at Akron) and three-pointers attempted (30 at Georgia State). WSSU head coach Bobby Collins, who improves to 6-5 all-time versus Norfolk State University, and who has won two straight games over the Spartans including last season’s second round MEAC tournament contest victory versus NSU (while head coach at Hampton) was proud of the Rams’ intensity in the contest as he commented: “We just wanted to get this win. It is very rewarding, to come back to the Hampton Roads area and win in front of family and friends. I think that this is the most points we have scored all season and this is indicative of the fact that we played hard. We played for 40 minutes tonight and showed confidence, and that helped us in this victory. Anytime you go anywhere and get a win it’s big, but doing it in this area, it is icing on the cake. This [Norfolk State] is a very good MEAC team, and it’s just great to get this win. I don’t know if they expected us to shoot the ball as well as we did, but our intensity was high and it propelled us to the win.”

The Bison, a team that has registered three 60% shooting games thus far this season, hit nearly everything from the floor as NDSU used their size to record 38 points in the paint. NDSU missed only 15 shots in the contest and shot an astounding 80% (eight-of-ten) from behind the three-point arch. The Rams fall to 1-18 on the season when allowing their opponent to shoot better than 50% from the field. “They can really shoot the basketball. One through five they can really shoot the basketball. They are a very poised team and we, unfortunately, have to play them again, at their place. We need to regroup and get our legs up under us and play better defense before we face them again” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. The Rams saw their two game win streak snapped with the loss as Winston-Salem State drops to 3-19 on the season. The Bison improve to 11-6 overall with the win. Leading the way for WSSU was Darius Floyd who recorded a team-high 21 points in the losing effort. He was joined by Brian Fisher and Jamal Durham who tallied 12 and 10 points respectively. The Bison were led by Ben Woodside and Brett Winkelman who each recorded a game-high 22 points in the win.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Rams Never Trail To Wildcats; Defeat BethuneCookman College 56-48

Rattlers Bite Rams; Florida A&M Defeats WSSU 83-68 In Tallahasee

DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Head coach Bobby Colline and the Rams came to the Sunshine State looking to earn their third win in their last four games and Winston-Salem State University did just that on Saturday afternoon in Daytona Beach, Florida as they never trailed the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman College en route to a 56-48 victory at Moore Gymnasium.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Despite a valiant effort and a never-quit spirit, the Rams of Winston-Salem State University fell short on Monday evening in Tallahassee, Florida as WSSU dropped an 83-68 decision to the Rattlers of Florida A&M at Gaither Gymnasium in non-conference men’s basketball action.

The visiting Rams jumped out to an early 17-4 lead as Winston-Salem State University used five consecutive three-point field goals to open the game with three different WSSU players recording baskets from behind the three-point arch. The lead would prove to be an insurmountable one for the Wildcats as WSSU used their trademark suffocating defense to hold Bethune-Cookman to only five first half field goals as BCC missed 20 of their 25 shots in the first half of play. WSSU’s defense and 43.5% shooting performance from the field enabled the Rams to take a 12-point lead to the locker room at halftime as WSSU led 30-18 at the break. The two teams seemingly switched roles in the second half as WSSU shot a disappointing 23.1% from the field, hitting on only six of their 26 field goal attempts in the game’s final 20 minutes. WSSU survived a seven-minute and 20-second second-half scoring drought as the Wildcats cut the Rams’ lead to as little as five points with 3:26 remaining in the contest. Timely free throw shooting and solid rebounding from Jamal Durham who tallied a game-high 12 rebounds helped the Rams hold on for the win as WSSU improved to 3-1 over their last four contests. Darius Floyd led the Rams with 17 points in the contest as he and Jamal Durham were the only two WSSU players in double-digits in scoring. Durham added 12 rebounds to his 17 points as he recorded his first double-double of the season. Jimmy Hudson led the Wildcats with a team-high 17 points in the loss. The win improves the Rams to 4-19 on the season while the loss drops Bethune-Cookman to 4-14 overall.

For the fourth consecutive contest the Rams failed to shoot better than 40% from the field as WSSU connected on only 38.3% of their shots from the field, converting only 23 of 60 field goal attempts in the loss. The two teams traded baskets for the first nine minutes of the game as the Rams and Rattlers were deadlocked at 17-17 with 11:13 remaining in the first half. The Rattlers used a boisterous home crowd to mount a 25-5 run over the next ten minutes of play as FAMU opened up their largest lead of the game, a 20-point advantage, with little more than one minute remaining in the first half. Halftime adjustments from head coach Bobby Collins helped the Rams shave the Rattler lead to as little as nine point three times in the second half of play, yet WSSU’s inconsistency from three-point range (seven of 28 in the contest) never allowed them to get to within nine points en route to the 15-point loss. Darius Floyd led the Rams with a game-high 27 points as he hit nine of his 16 shot attempts including recording a five of nine shooting performance from behind the three-point arch. Joining Floyd in doubledigits was Brian Fisher who tallied 15 points in the loss. Floyd’s team-high 27 points marks the seventh time this season that the freshman has led WSSU in scoring. Florida A&M was led by Rome Sanders’ team-high 24 points as he led three Rattlers in double-figures. Sanders was joined by Darius Glover (14 points) and Akini Adkins (12 points) in the win. The loss drops the Rams to 4-20 on the season while the Rattlers improve to 13-9 overall with the win. WSSU returns to action on February 6, 2007 at 7:00 pm at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum as they face their cross-town rival, the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest University in the Twin City Classic.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Deacs Use Size Advantage To Down Rams 87-71 In Twin City Shootout

Rams Down Columbia Union Pioneers 77-61 On Senior Night

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Wake Forest University Demon Deacons used their overall size advantage to hand the Winston-Salem State University Rams an 87-71 loss in front of 8,625 fans at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday evening in the first-ever regular-season meeting between the two Winston-Salem, NC teams that are separated by only seven miles.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Senior forward Norman Carter’s career-high 14 points and 10 rebounds propelled the Winston-Salem State University Rams basketball team to a 77-61 victory over the Columbia Union College Pioneers on “Senior Night” at the C.E. Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, NC on Saturday evening.

The Rams spent the majority of the early part of the first half trading baskets with the Deacons as the lead changed twice during the game’s first three minutes of play.

Playing in the final home game of their WSSU basketball careers, Carter, Curtis Hines and Lowen Wray started the contest in front of a sell-out crowd at the C.E. Gaines Center as the Rams snapped their two-game losing streak.

Wake Forest’s inside play, chiefly the presence of the Deacs’ 6’11” All-ACC candidate center Kyle Visser, proved to be a problem for the undersized Rams as WFU opened up a lead of as many as 20 points with little more than six minutes to play in the first half. Head coach Bobby Collins’ young Rams showed the poise of a veteran team as WSSU mounted a run of their own as they cut the Demon Deacon lead to as little as six points on a fall-away three-pointer by freshman guard Brian Fisher (Marietta, GA) with only nine seconds remaining before the halftime intermission. The Fisher three cut the Deacs’ lead to only six points as Wake Forest was forced to settle for a 44-38 advantage after the conclusion of the first 20 minutes of play. Second-half action saw the Demon Deacons continue to use their size advantage as Wake Forest tallied 28 points in the paint and benefited from 21 second-chance points en route to the 16-point win. Wake Forest’s twin towers of Visser and the 6’8” Jamie Skeen each tallied double-doubles in the contest marking only the second time this season that a team saw two players in double-figures in more than one category. Visser’s team-leading 15 points and 11 rebounds, combined with Skeen’s 11 points and 13 rebounds proved to be too much for the Rams as the pair of big men led six WFU players into double figures. The Rams were led by Brian Fisher’s 25 points in the loss. Fisher was joined in double-figures by Darrell Wonge who tallied a season-high 17 points in a losing effort. “I have never seen our guys so focused, and so wanting to win. We left it all on the floor, but I thought that Wake Forest was much bigger and used their size advantage to help get some easy buckets. We live and die by the three-pointer sometimes as we aren’t very big, and although our guys really gave it everything they had, we came up short. The rivalry is great for the city and great for the fans and the two programs and unfortunately we came up on the wrong side of it tonight” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. The loss drops the Rams to 4-21 on the season and runs WSSU’s losing streak to two games. Wake Forest improves to 11-12 overall with the win.

Taking full advantage of his eighth career start in his 55th game as a Ram, Carter recorded career highs in both points and rebounds as he was a force on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. “He just really came to play. We went through him on both ends of the floor. He played well on offense and on defense. I mean, we even had to put him on their point guard to stop him from penetrating. I can’t be more proud. Norman, a senior, had a really great night in his home gym in front of a home crowd for the last time in his career. I’m really happy for him, and happy to get the win” head coach Bobby Collins said in post game interviews. Despite trailing at the half, the Rams were able to bounce back during the game’s final 20 minutes of play as the Rams won their first game of 2006-07 when trailing at the half (one win, 18 losses). WSSU was paced by a trio of players who recorded 14 points each in the contest as Brian Fisher, Norman Carter, and Darius Floyd each tallied 14 points in the win. Carter led the Rams with his career-high 10 rebounds en route to the first double-double of his WSSU career. The Pioneers were led by Marice Stallion who tallied 14 points in the loss as he led four Columbia Union players in double-figures. With the win, the Rams improve to 5-21 overall while the Pioneers fall to 4-17.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Alabama A&M Uses Second-Half Run To Down Winston-Salem State 79-63

Rams Battle, Wonge Scores 19 As WSSU Falls 8368 To North Dakota State

HUNTSVILLE, AL – The Bulldogs of Alabama A&M University opened the second half of play with a 20-3 run as they handed the Rams of Winston-Salem State University a 79-63 loss at the T.M. Elmore Gymnasium in Normal, Alabama on Monday evening in non-conference men’s basketball action.

FARGO, ND – Darrell Wonge’s 19 points, including five three-pointers could not propel the Rams of Winston-Salem State University to a victory on Wednesday evening in Fargo, North Dakota as WSSU fell in defeat to the Bison of North Dakota State University.

The two teams traded baskets during the contest’s first 20 minutes of play as the Rams and Bulldogs exchanged leads seven times with neither team leading by more than six points despite WSSU’s inefficiency shooting the ball.

The two teams who were meeting for only the second time in history traded baskets, and the lead, during the first half of play as neither the Rams nor the Bison held an insurmountable advantage as the 1,812 fans in attendance witness to seven ties and 14 lead changes.

The Rams successfully converted only 13 of their 36 first-half shots in the contest as WSSU shot an unimpressive 36.1% from the field during the first period of play.

The Bison, who won the only other meeting between the two teams on January 20, 2007 by the score of 87-63, started the game on a quick 7-0 run as they held the Rams without a field goal for nearly four minutes.

In spite of the chilly shooting performance, the Rams trailed the Bulldogs by the slimmest of margins headed into the locker room at halftime as Alabama A&M clung to a one-point cushion with the score 37-36. Alabama A&M, ranked dead last in the Ratings Percentage Index headed into the contest with the Rams, looked like a completely different team in the second half as the Bulldogs mounted a 20-3 run over the first 8:55 of play to turn a one-point lead into an insurmountable 18-point cushion with 11:05 remaining en route to the win. The Rams struggles from the field proved to be the difference in the game as WSSU’s top three scorers combined to post a 10-of-37 shooting evening as Brian Fisher (4-of-13), Darius Floyd (4-of-13), and Jamal Durham (2-11) shot only 27% from the field. “We couldn’t defend in the second half. Our defense tonight was predicated on our offense scoring and it has to be the other way around. We can usually always defend, and tonight that wasn’t the case because of our poor offense” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said. “We were taking quick shots, and they got lay-ups on the other end as a result. We took a lot of bad shots, and with that Alabama A&M got easy transition buckets. [Brian] Fisher and Darius [Floyd] each went 4-13 from the floor and Jamal Durham shot even worse and when those three guys don’t score we struggle. Those guys went something like 1-12 in second half and that hasn’t happened all year and it cost us” Collins noted. Alabama A&M was led by Trant Simpson’s game-high 21 points and six rebounds as he led four Bulldogs in double-figures. The Rams were paced by senior guard Curtis Hines’ 15 points as he and Brian Fisher were the only two WSSU players in double figures in the loss.

WSSU responded with a 6-0 run of their own as WSSU turned a pair of NDSU turnovers into easy baskets as the Rams closed to within one point during a furious 51 seconds of tenacious defensive play. The two teams were content to trade baskets for the remainder of the half as North Dakota State University held a one field-goal advantage at the half as they clutched to a 30-28 lead. The Bison wasted little time following the halftime intermission as North Dakota State mounted a 25-11 run over the first 11:30 of the second half as they increased their lead to a game-high 16 points at 58-42 with less than nine minutes remaining in the contest. “We had some mental lapses which they took advantage of and ran away with. We got behind and then we were forced to gamble, and when you gamble and don’t come up with the steal, they usually get layups on the other end, and that is what happened. We have to play for 40 minutes and we didn’t do that and obviously, missing Darius [leading scorer Darius Floyd] hurt us” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins stated in post-game interviews. Despite the Bison run, second-half action was not decidedly one-sided as the Rams turned in several key performances including Darrell Wonge’s impressive six-of-seven shooting performance which included a five-of-six shooting display from three-point range en route to a team-high 19 points. “Wonge responded. I challenged him at halftime. He didn’t even take a three in the first half, and I challenged him to get his looks in the second half and he did. He hit some big shots. However, they out-rebounded us big, and shot far more free throws than us. It takes more than one person stepping up to get a win” Collins said. Wonge’s 19 points led three WSSU players in double figures as Norman Carter tallied 14 points and Brian Fisher recorded 11 points in the loss. North Dakota State was led by Brett Winkelman’s 27 points as he led four Bison in double figures. The loss drops the Rams to 5-23 overall and runs WSSU’s losing streak to two games. With the win, the Bison move to 17-8 on the season and increase their mark of consecutive wins to two games.

WSSU Rams 2006-07 Game Reviews Rams Battle, Fall to South Carolina State, 89-82 ORANGEBURG, SC – The Winston-Salem State Rams (5-24) went out with a battle falling to the South Carolina State Bulldogs (13-16), 89-82, Friday night. Though the Rams had every opportunity to give up on the game, the team battled from the tip-off to the final horn. However, the effort was not enough to overcome a tough Bulldog squad that benefited from shooting 37.7% from the field and forced 17 WSSU turnovers. The story of the game was told on the free throw line where the Rams shot 76% (19-of-25) while the home court Bulldogs shot 81.4% (35-of-43). Junior forward Darrell Wonge led the way for the Rams with a season-high 21 points, including hitting five three-pointers on the night. Fellow junior forward Norman Carter added 15 points in the contest. Sophomore forward Jamal Durham and freshman guard Brian Fisher were also both solid scoring 14 points each. The first half turned out to be a battle for both teams as both teams found peaks and valleys on offense and defense. The two teams battled mightily in the early going with neither team leading by more than two points for the first 10 minutes of the half. Junior forward Darrell Wonge was hot in the early going scoring six of the Rams’ first eight points on a pair of three-pointers in the first five minutes of the game. However, turnovers would slow down the team’s offense midway through the half. The WSSU defense made up for the team’s struggles on offense, however, keeping the game close through most of the half. However, the Rams were hampered by a late run by the Bulldogs that put the team down by nine points, 31-22 with 3:56 left in the half. However, the Rams continued to play tough scoring a pair of unanswered baskets in the final minute of the half, including hitting a lay-up with 00:02 left to cut the team’s deficit down to just five points, 34-29 at halftime. The second half was a battle from beginning to end as the Rams fought an clawed their way back after every SCSU run, but were unable to overcome some clutch shooting by the Bulldogs. Freshman guard Brian Fisher got the half started for the Rams with a three-pointer that cut the WSSU deficit down to just two points, 34-32 with 19:43 left in the game. The tough battle began to take its toll on the Rams as the team fell victim to a 10-2 run by the Bulldogs and gave the team a 44-34 deficit, the largest of the game. The Rams would take advantage of an SCSU technical foul as senior Curtis Hines hit a pair of free throws followed by a Wonge lay-up that cut the Rams’ deficit down to just four six points, 42-38 with just under 16 minutes left to play. South Carolina State would continue to control the contest, however, as a 7-2 run by the Bulldogs left the Rams trailing, 49-40 with 12:54 left to play. The Rams’ struggles continued on offense with just one field goal in the previous four minutes.

Despite the teams’ struggles, the Rams bounced back, as Wonge’s third three-pointer of the night would spark a WSSU run that pulled the team back into the game. Senior guard Curtis Hines hit a three pointer with just over nine minutes left to play that pulled the Rams to within one point, 58-57 with 8:53 left in the game. However, in the same way that the Rams benefited from an SCSU technical foul earlier in the game, the team also fell victim to a technical when Wonge was called for a technical foul. The resulting SCSU free throws, followed by another pair of SCSU free throws would put the team back down by four points and one again left the Rams fighting back from behind. South Carolina State would once again put on the pressure scoring a pair of unanswered lay-ups to remain in control of the contest, 66-59. It was Brian Fisher that would answer the call for the Rams, hitting a three-pointer with 7:50 left to play that kept the game within reach, 66-62. The next two minutes were crucial for the Rams as the team gave up nine unanswered points to the Bulldogs and fell behind, 75-62. Wonge would pull the Rams back into the game hitting a pair of threepointers that cut the WSSU deficit back to just eight points, 75-68. Though the Rams would continue to battle down the stretch, the team was never able to break the eight-point hold that the Bulldogs has on the game. The Rams’ attempts to claw their way back into the game were slowed by some quality free throw shooting by the Bulldogs as the team hit five of their last six free throws over the last two minutes. Junior guard Roy Peake led the Rams’ last big run scoring back-to-back lay-ups that brought the Rams to within six points, 78-84. The final two minutes were marred by fouls and some clutch Bulldog free throws that put the game out of reach for the Rams. The team could not get any closer than the final seven point deficit, 89-82. The Rams end the 2006-07 season with three straight losses and the team finishes the year with a 5-24 record in its first full season in NCAA Division I.

Clarence E. “Big House” Gaines

Clarence E. Gaines 1923-2005 ➤ WSSU Hall of Fame Head Basketball Coach ➤ 48 Seasons 1946-1993 ➤ Fifth All-Time Winningest NCAA Coach (828-447) Clarence E. “Big House” Gaines, Sr. was born in Paducah, Kentucky, May 21, 1923, to Lester and Olivia Bolen Gaines. He attended the public schools of Paducah and graduated in 1941, as class salutatorian, from Paducah’s Lincoln High School. He excelled academically, played basketball, was an All State football player, and played trumpet in the school band. Although he qualified academically to attend numerous colleges and universities “Jim Crow” segregation and a suggestion by the family physician (a schoolmate of legendary Morgan State University football coach, Eddie Hurt) caused young Gaines to enroll at Morgan State University in 1941. It was upon his arrival at the Baltimore, Maryland campus that Gaines received the nickname he is widely known by -- “Big House.” According to oral accounts the school’s business manager took one look at the 6 ft. 3in., 265lb Gaines and declared: “Boy, I never seen anything bigger than you but a house.” While at Morgan State Gaines received recognition as an All-American football player and participated on the basketball and track teams. Gaines graduated from Morgan State in 1945 with a B.S. degree in Chemistry intent on furthering his education and attending dental school. His college coach, Eddie Hurt, recommended he temporarily go to Winston-Salem Teachers College in Winston-Salem, NC, to become the assistant coach to Brutus Wilson (a Morgan State graduate) who coached all sports at the small southern college.

 140 

Upon Wilson’s departure to Shaw University in 1946, Gaines became the head football and basketball coach, athletic director, trainer, and ticket manager. Gaines coached football from 1946-1949. In 1948 Gaines was named CIAA (Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association) “Football Coach of the Year” after leading the RAMS to an 8-1 season. Beginning in 1949 Gaines only coached basketball, and served as athletic director. In 1950 Gaines received his masters degree in education from Columbia University. In 1950 Gaines married the former Clara Berry, a Latin language teacher in the (Winston-Salem) Forsyth county public school system. They are the parents of two children, Lisa Gaines McDonald, a private business consultant and Clarence Edward Gaines, Jr., a scout for the National Basketball Association’s Chicago Bulls. Due to his proficiency as an athletic coach, teacher and humanitarian, Gaines has received numerous awards: CIAA Basketball Tournament Outstanding Coach Award; 1953, 57, 60, 61, 63, 66, 70, 77; CIAA Hall of Fame Inductee, 1975; NAIA Helms Hall of Fame Inductee, 1968; N.C.

Clarence E. “Big House” Gaines During Coach Gaines’ 47-year tenure as coach and athletic director at Winston-Salem State University he coached former WSSU and professional basketball greats Cleo Hill (first African-American from an historically Black college and university to be drafted #1 by the National Basketball Association -- St. Louis Hawks, 1961) and Earl “The Pearl” Monroe Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee and all star performer) of the National Basketball Association’s New York Knicks. In 1967, as a result of his guidance and the all around play of future National Basketball Association All-Star Vernon Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, the Winston-Salem State College, men’s basketball team won the 1967 National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Division II Basketball Championship -- the first historically Black college to win a national championship. Subsequently, Gaines was named the NCAA Division II (1967) College Coach of the Year. In 1982 Gaines was recognized for his contribution to basketball by being inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (named in honor of the inventor of basketball James Naismith). Involved in numerous professional and civic activities, in addition to his duties as athletic director, coach and instructor, Gaines was President of CIAA Basketball Coaches Association, 1972-76; NAIA District Chairman, 1966-72; President of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, 1989; Co-founder of the WinstonSalem Youth Baseball League, Inc.,1960; Patterson Avenue YMCA Board of Management, 1969-1971; Experiment in Self Reliance Board of Directors, 1987; Winston-Salem Automobile Club (AAA) Board of Directors, 1986; founder and former administrator of the Winston-Salem

Other activities include membership in Sigma Pi Phi Boule and Omega Psi Phi fraternities, Boy Scouts of America, Forsyth County Heart Association, United States Olympic Committee, Model Cities Recreation Committee, Rotary Club of Winston-Salem and basketball consultant for the United States Air Force (Germany, England, Mexico). Upon his retirement as basketball coach at Winston-Salem State University in 1993, Gaines had amassed a win/loss record of 828446, making him the winningest active basketball coach in NCAA history, and the second winningest collegiate basketball coach behind the University of Kentucky’s late Adolph Rupp. However, following University of North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith’s 877th career win in March 1997, coach Gaines became the third winningest basketball coach in NCAA history behind only Adolph Rupp (2nd), and Dean Smith (1st). Gaines was eventually surpassed by longtime friend Jim Phelan of Mt. St. Mary’s University (formerly Mt. St. Mary’s College the name change took place on June 8th, 2004), placing him fourth all-time in wins in NCAA Basketball history before Bobby Knight passed both Phelan and Gaines in 2005, moving “Big House” to fifth-place all-time. Clarence Gaines passed away on April 18th, 2005 due to complications from a stroke. He is survived by his lovely wife Clara and two children, Lisa and Clarence, Jr. Gaines’ legacy at Winston-Salem State University and in the college basketball world are surely to never be forgotten.


WSSU 1967 National Championship

“One Man Team” Earl Monroe Leads Winston-Salem State To Title By: Bill Schrader Evansville, IN – Winston-Salem State College, led by all-time collegiate scoring leader Earl Monroe, was shunned all season as one of the nation’s top small-college basketball teams. The Rams couldn’t be denied in the 1967 NCAA College Division tournament however, defeating sixth-ranked Akron University, second-ranked Kentucky Wesleyan and fifth-ranked Southwest Missouri en route to the national title. Those who had any reservations about the ability of Monroe saw them disappear as he went on a five-game scoring binge of 34, 49, 29, 23 and 40 points to win the Most Valuable Player Award hands down. When the regular season drew to a close, Winston-Salem had lost only once in 27 games, winning the Central Intercollegiate Athletic championship. Monroe was averaging 43 points per game to close in on the single-season scoring record. Passed Up By Experts This wasn’t convincing enough for the experts, who never ranked the Rams higher than eleventh in the polls. The oversight became obvious in the Midwest Regional tournament at Akron as Winston-Salem started its title march by disposing of the sixth-ranked Zips, 88-80, behind Monroe’s 49-point performance.

“When you need it, give it to the money man.” Rams Stage Rally That’s just what Winston-Salem did in the championship game as the Rams came from behind to overtake Southwest Missouri in the closing minutes. Monroe tallied 16 of the 21 points scored in the last ten minutes, including two clutch free throws with 25 seconds remaining to insure the win. Southwest Missouri had come close to spilling Winston-Salem with a zone defense that shut off the four other Rams’ starters and aggressive rebounding that stifled a usually productive fast break. With the front line of Danny Bolden, Don Carlson and Lou Shepherd hauling down 29 rebounds, Southwest Missouri had a 39-32 edge on the boards. In the 82-73 semifinal victory over defending champion Kentucky Wesleyan, the Rams’ 6-6, 230-pound sophomore center, Bill English, dominated the defensive boards to trigger the fast break, so Monroe was content to play the role of feeder and floor leader. He scored 24 points as 6-1 senior guard Eugene Smiley hit 27 and English contributed 22. The defense that Southwest Missouri threw at Winston-Salem drew accolades from Gaines.

The fitting climax came in the championship game as the Rams disposed of Southwest Missouri, 77-74. Monroe contributed 40 points to the title victory.

“That’s the best we’ve been defensed all year” he said. “Anytime we’re up against a team that uses its three good rebounders like Southwest Missouri did, we’ve got problems.”

Seven professional scouts were on hand to reaffirm the previous evaluations that Monroe was one of collegiate basketball’s “blue chippers” as an All-America choice of The Sporting News for 1967. Nothing he did dissuaded them.

Losers Boast Balance Southwest Missouri, which also finished second in the national tournament in 1959, had balanced size across the front line with Shepherd, 6-7; Carlson, 6-6, and Bolden, 6-4.

Monroe had some very talented teammates, but just the same the Rams were the closest thing to a “one man team” to win the coveted small-college championship.

Bolden and Shepherd were also big offensive guns with 27 and 20 points, respectively.

This stemmed from the coaching philosophy of Clarence “Big House” Gaines:

 142 

If Southwest Missouri Coach Bill Thomas had to do it over again, he wouldn’t change a thing.


WSSU 1967 National Championship “Just one basket or one rebound in the last minute and a half could have made the difference,” he said. “We had the opportunity. We just didn’t capitalize on it.” Thomas said his defensive strategy was to stick to the zone and send two men after Monroe as often as possible. “I thought we played Monroe well.” He added “You’re just not going to shut him off. Rams’ All-America Breaks Collegiate Scoring Record With 40 points in Earl Monroe’s final game, the Winston-Salem senior brought his season’s scoring total to 1,329 points, the most ever piled up by any college player. The previously recognized mark of 1255 was Bevo Francis of Rio Grande in 27 games in 1954. Monroe, an All-America choice of The Sporting News, achieved his total of in 32 games. The MVP of the NCAA’s College Division finals, Monroe was named to the alltournament team along with Danny Bolden and Lou Shepherd of Southwest Missouri and Sam Smith and Dallas Thornton of Kentucky Wesleyan.

Media Information ELECTRONIC MEDIA REGULATIONS Winston-Salem State University Athletics has its own home page on the Internet (www.WSSURAMS.com). With the recent growth of the World Wide Web, the following policies have been adopted by Winston-Salem State University for both credentialing and allowing access to practice and interviews. Nothing in this policy creates any right, entitlement, or interest in the media credentials to anyone or any entity, as this is a guideline only. The final decision for media credentials remains the sole and exclusive discretion of Chris Zona, WSSU Assistant Director of Athletics for Media Relations. These guidelines are intended to provide the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations with guidance in exercising sole and exclusive discretion as to who will be issued media credentials, but are guidelines only. They are intended to list some of the factors that will assist in providing media credentials. Because technology and media are dynamic processes, these guidelines do not, and cannot, exhaustively list or describe each situation that may occur. Only the official website of a WSSU opponent (and/or its official conference site) will automatically be issued passes for those events that require access (or media) credentials (with a maximum of two credentials). Other than the official website of an opponent, the below guidelines must be met for minimum consideration for credentials and access for any Internet site. 1. No online service will be allowed “real time” transmission of any live Winston-Salem State University athletic event (known as “cybercasts”). Those broadcast rights are coowned by WSSU, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the radio and television partners of those two entities. “Real Time” is defined as any on-line media providing live continual play-by-play coverage, digital photographs, audio or video of an event, and includes the use of in-game comprehensive statistics. WSSU reserves the right to grant approval of real time playby-play game statistics via the Internet, as these rights are no different than television or radio rights and are essential in building the WSSU brand. These rights are reserved for the agencies representing the participating institutions in an official capacity and contractual rights fee-paying media. In conjunction with this, radio and television stations, networks or cable systems are prohibited from making available video highlights without permission from WSSU. In addition, the official websites of the two participating institutions are the only ones allowed to serve as sources of information (other than the score and appropriate scoring plays) via the Internet during the game.

2. Any entity, agency or individual may request access and/or credentials, but the decision to grant media credentials rests in the sole and exclusive discretion of WSSU. Some non-exhaustive examples as to which Internet providers may be granted media credentials are the official online service of a national over-the-air or cable network or established publication (e.g. ESPN, CNN/SI, CBS SportsLine, etc.). Request and subsequent coverage, if granted, must be done in the true name of those seeking credentials and access, and not be a moniker. 3. Websites that sponsor “message boards,” “message centers” or “chat rooms” where people are allowed to post anonymous information, speculation and rumors are ineligible for credentials or access. NOTE: If a medium has an online site and they sponsor these anonymous forums, they may continue to request credentials under its traditional medium (newspaper, television, magazine, radio) but will not be granted additional passes for online staff. Websites that request and wish to qualify for credentials that sponsor these forums must display them in a manner where posters of information are both accurately identified (no monikers) and have accurate contact information. 4. Any online service that places emphasis on the recruitment of potential student-athletes will not qualify for credentials. This is defined as any organization that is recognized as an outlet intended primarily for the purpose of recruiting news and or the recruitment of student–athletes where 50 percent or more of the information relates to this topic. Those organizations will thus be considered recruiting organizations and will not be eligible for credentials. 5. Membership in a writer’s association (e.g. FWAA, USBWA) does not automatically qualify an online agency, or any other organization, for credentials or access. 6. Credentials will not be granted to any online agency operating sites that are in any way affiliated with gambling, or to “freelance” or “fan-based” sites that are not affiliated with a legitimate news gathering organization. For example, “I’m covering for AOL,” will have to be validated by a request from a sports director, again associated with an official news gathering organization.
