In the summer of 2008 the Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team traveled to Nassau, Bahamas for a four-day foreign tour which saw the Rams play a pair of exhibition games versus club and professional teams. The Rams took advantage of an NCAA rule that allows for a basketball program to schedule a foreign tour and play in an early tournament once every four years. WSSU was allowed to practice for 10 days prior to its departure for the Bahamas on August 29 as the Rams prepared to face a pair of club teams with members of the Bahamian National Team on them. Despite the stiff competition, the Rams earned a split on their tour of the Bahamas as they fell, 85-82 to the Bahamas Select and defeated the Cybots Bahamas All-Stars, 7975. Then-senior forward Jamal Durham tallied a career-high 28 points in the loss while junior transfer Diontae Gibson scored 17 points in the victory. The foreign tour, organized by the Basketball Travelers, Inc., was not all work for the Rams, however, as student-athletes, coaches and support staff enjoyed their trip with a stay at the Sheraton Resort on historic Cable Beach. A four-star all-inclusive resort, the Rams enjoyed picturesque views on a white sand beach, dined on freshly prepared meals and enjoyed water sports and beach volleyball. The Rams next foreign tour will be in the summer of 2012 to an as-yet-to-bedetermined location.

OFFICIAL 2009-10

The 2009-10 season marks the fourth year for the Rams at the NCAA Division I level and will again continue to usher in a new age of basketball history for WinstonSalem 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 different.

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, as part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, 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. The 2009-10 season marks the fourth consecutive year that the Rams have participated in this partnership and the Rams will again wear apparel and footwear from the pair of industry leaders.

The Rams, like all other college basketball programs in the NCAA, will wear dark colored jerseys on the road and light colored jerseys at home. The Rams will wear a scarlet red (PMS 199) road jersey with white taping for all road games. The dri-power jerseys will feature tackle-twill numbers on the front and back with name plates adorning the back of the jersey. The Rams athletic mark will be embroidered on the front placket, and the MEAC logo will emblazon the left chest. Last season saw the Rams unveil a new road uniform designed by Russell Athletic. The game jersey is composed of 86 percent nylon and 14 percent spandex and is a loose-fitting jersey designed to help control overheating with a state-of-the-art moisture management system.

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.

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 road jersey with tackle-twill numbers on the front and back with name plates adorning the back of the jersey. The Rams athletic mark will again be embroidered on the front placket and the MEAC logo will emblazon the left chest. The 2009-10 season will be the third season of use for the Rams home jersey which is also designed by Russell Athletic. The home game jersey

is composed of 86 percent nylon and 14 percent spandex and is also a loose-fitting jersey designed to help control overheating with a state-of-the-art moisture management system. The Rams also possess a third color alternate jersey that is identical to the home and road jerseys with the exception of being black in color (PMS Black). 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 futureminded 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 five different models of footwear in 2009-10 including, but not limited to, the Nike Hyperize, Nike Hypermax, Nike Hyperdunk, Nike Shox Vision TB, and the Nike Zoom Soldier III. As long as the Rams continue to stay on the cutting edge of athletic performance, they will wear Nike’s cutting-edge footwear and Russell Athletic uniforms.

The Clarence E. Gaines Center, known to most as “The Gaines Center” is one of the trio of sites 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 the home site for the WSSU women’s volleyball team.

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 in the facility which does not have air conditioning.

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, prompting the Rams’ and Lady Rams’ recent moves to the LJVM Coliseum and Coliseum Annex.

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 2010-11 academic year.

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.

One of the newest arenas in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and one of the most beautiful basketball facilities in the country is the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum with a capacity to seat 14,665 fans. The facility has served as the part-time home of Winston-Salem State University basketball since 2002 and has been home to WSSU basketball more frequently with the Rams’ transition to the NCAA Division I level. Though the facility is owned by the city of Winston-Salem with the major tenant being the crosstown 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. 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.

history of the facility. Lawrence Joel Coliseum was actually almost two decades in the making. Twice during the 1970s (1976 and 1979), the voters of Winston-Salem 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, N.C. 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 machinegun fire, 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 Aug. 28, 1989 with a dedication ceremony that officially announced the opening of what now is the LJVM Coliseum Complex.

With the transition to NCAA Division I, the Rams and Lady Rams have experienced tremendous growth within the athletic department. New staff positions, additional coaches, increased scholarships and improvements to athletic facilities have all added to the overall student-athlete experience at Winston-Salem State University and have translated into success on the field and in the classroom. While the new WSSU athletic fieldhouse was completed in May of 2008 and the WSSU tennis complex was completed just prior to the fieldhouse opening, the Rams and Lady Rams refuse to rest upon their laurels and the WSSU Department of Athletics will be welcoming additional athletic department facilities projects as the Lady Rams softball team and the men’s and women’s track and field teams will soon be moving into their new homes as well. Located adjacent to the new WSSU tennis complex, the men’s and women’s track and field team recently opened a brand new, state-of-the-art track and field facility which houses an eight-lane rubberized running track, high jump and long jump pits, pole vault, hammer throw and javelin stations and houses both a 100-yard and 50-yard football practice field facility.

As exciting as WSSU football and basketball games are, the experience would not be complete without the Winston-Salem State University “Red Sea of Sound” marching band. Records have determined the existence of an instrumental music program at Slater Industrial Academy (now Winston-Salem State University) as early as 1933. The ensemble was known as the Slater Industrial Academy Orchestra. In 1925, Slater Industrial Academy became known as WinstonSalem Teachers College. The first tangible efforts in the direction of starting a band came between the years of 1937-1941. During this four year period, a group of young college students organized a musical group and named themselves the Teachers College Collegians. The Teachers College Collegians performed and played primarily dance music. Between 1943 and 1944, in an effort to stimulate growth and development with the band, the Winston-Salem Teachers College National Association created the “Band Project,” a fundraiser for the band program. The Association raised $1,507.25 to purchase eighteen (18) instruments for the band program. During that time the band played at chapel services each week. The college’s first band was organized in 1945 under the direction of music instructor Hamlet Goore. Mr. Goore served as band director until 1950. During the five-year period spanning from 1945 to 1950 the organization made tremendous progress. During the 50’s and early 60’s, not much information exists concerning the Winston-Salem State Teachers College Band. It is known that in 1966 or 1967, the band was under the direction of Mr. Harry Pickard. In 1969 the band was under the baton of Dr. Fred Tanner. At the end of the 1969-70 football season the band was presented with an award for being the “Biggest Sound in the CIAA.” Many notable

28

achievements occurred during the early and late 1970’s which include:

• A half-time performance for the Baltimore Colts – 1971 • Participation in the Afro- American Day Parade –New York City, 1974

• A performance for the arrival of President Jimmy Carter, 1976 • Participation in the RJR Rodeo Parade • Participation in the parade for the new Masonic Lodge, Winston-Salem In 1972 Winston-Salem State College became known as WinstonSalem State University. The notoriety of the band program excelled during Dr. Tanner’s career and the WSSU band became nationally recognized as one of the best instrumental ensembles in the country. The program changed hands several times after Dr. Tanner relinquished the position. The most notable change occurred in 1994 when Mr. Emory Jones became the band master. Mr. Jones, a 1971 graduate of WSSU, devoted ten untiring years to the WSSU band program. In his honor, The Emory Jones Endowed Scholarship in Music has been established. The Winston-Salem State University Band is now under the direction of Dr. Michael Magruder. His no-nonsense approach to the band and primarily to the sound philosophy of the band has transformed the entire instrumental band program at WSSU. In the four years under Dr. Magruder the band program has continued moving forward. A quality sound along with a comprehensive musical philosophy has seen the WSSU band continue to grow and develop. The change has been significant however future endeavors will undoubtedly be witness to the greatness which is yet to come.

Rams vs. Aggies The long-standing rivalry between the Rams and the Aggies is a bitter one that dates back to the two teams’ first meeting in 1947. The Rams’ transition to NCAA Division I has welcomed a renewal of the rivalry that had taken a 10-year hiatus from 1998 until 2008.

• WSSU and N.C. A&T are separated by only 31 miles of Interstate 40 as the Rams call Winston-Salem home while the Aggies’ campus is in Greensboro.

• The two teams have met twice every season for nearly the entire history of both programs. With the Rams’ transition to NCAA Division I play and membership in the MEAC, the rivalry is renewed with a pair of conference matchups between the two schools each season.

• The Rams vs. Aggies rivalry dates back to a time when both institutions were members of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).

• North Carolina A&T and WSSU met twice last season with the Aggies earning victories in both contests with each game being sold out well in advance of game day

On August 8, 2008, Winston-Salem State Ram forward Darrell Wonge became the second former WSSU student-athlete to sign a professional contract during the summer of 2008 when he signed a contract to play basketball for the Tsusho Toyota Eagles in Nagoya, Japan. “I’m just happy that I got the opportunity to live out my dream of playing professional basketball,” Wonge said. “It was nerve-wracking at first especially after a number of other opportunities fell through, but I’m very grateful for the opportunity that I’ve received.” A 6-6, 210-pound forward, Wonge was noticed at a player’s showcase where dozens of players from both major and mid-major schools displayed their skills for a number of professional teams. The Fighting Eagles compete in the JBL2 League where the team recorded a 14-2 record during the 2007-08 season. During his career, Wonge totaled 845 points at Winston-Salem State with 408 career rebounds. Wonge enjoyed a breakthrough season as a senior when he averaged a career-best 10.7 points per game and pulled in a career-high 150 rebounds for the season. A versatile player, Wonge also dished out 89 career assists and tallied 74 career steals. Wonge is the second former Ram to sign a professional sports contract in as many months with former WSSU defensive end William Hayes signing with the Tennessee Titans in July. Wonge departed for Japan on September 1, 2008 and turned in a stellar first professional season. He capped his season in the JBL2 League by moving on to Ecuador to play professionally after the completion of the Japanese league season. Wonge welcomed the services of former teammate Jamal Durham in the summer of 2009 and now both Wonge and Durham are continuing their professional basketball careers in Ecuador. Both players capped stellar WSSU basketball careers with bachelors degrees in their chosen field and now are pursuing their dreams of playing professional basketball.

Coach’s legacy will be more about how he helped create men and women while they were at Winston-Salem State.

HISTORY In 1969, a bold ad hoc group of innovators long associated with intercollegiate athletics met in Durham, N.C., to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new conference. Dissected from these discussions, a steering and planning committee was formed to fully investigate the idea, present a detailed report with recommendations to interested collegiate institutions, and then construct a workshop to outline proposals. After adopting a program, seven institutions (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 College) agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Its major objective was to establish, organize and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a compact group of educational institutions of high academic standards and with a sound philosophy of co-curricular activities. The conference was confirmed in 1970, kicking off its first season of competition in football in 1971. In 1978, a milestone was reached when the MEAC selected Kenneth A. Free to be its first full-time commissioner. He had been preceded by three interim (part-time) commissioners: Dr. Leroy Walker (1971-74); who later had the distinction of serving as the President of the United States Olympic Committee, the late Earl Mason (1974-75) and the late Dr. James Young (1975-78). Kenneth A. Free served the conference for 18 years before stepping down in 1995. In 1996, Charles S. Harris was named commissioner and served in the capacity until April 2002. Longtime MEAC

administrator Brenda H. McCoy served two stints as Interim Commissioner, one in 1996 and again in 2002. On September 1, 2002, Dr. Dennis E. Thomas was named the commissioner and has served in the position for six years. The leagues’ first expansion occurred in October 1979 when Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University were voted into the MEAC as new members. Original members Morgan State, North Carolina Central and Maryland Eastern Shore withdrew from the conference at the end of the 1979 fiscal year. Maryland Eastern Shore was readmitted in 1981 and Morgan State returned in 1984. Florida A&M opted to resign in 1984, but was readmitted in 1986. Coppin State College was granted admittance in 1985, becoming the ninth member institution. The MEAC expanded again in the 90’s with the inclusion of Hampton University (1995) and Norfolk State University (1997). The final expansion occurred in 2007, with the addition of Winston-Salem State University. On June 8, 1980, the MEAC was classified as a Division I conference by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The following month the MEAC received an automatic berth to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship. 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), football (since 1996), softball (since 1995), men and women’s tennis (since 1998), and volleyball (since 1994).

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.

State College. A statute designating WinstonSalem 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, WinstonSalem State University (WSSU) became one of 16 constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina, subject to the control of the Board of Governors.

now enrolls more than 6,400 students, offers bachelor’s degrees in more than 40 academic majors, master’s degrees in 10 programs, and employs 400 full-time faculty and more than 800 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.

Winston-Salem State University is located on 110 acres in Winston-Salem, 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).

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 WinstonSalem 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.

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.

Winston-Salem State University is rapidly 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 nine years (2001-09). 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 North Carolina General Assembly of 1963 authorized the changing of the name of Winston-Teachers College to Winston-Salem

The present day Winston-Salem State University has come a long way from its humble beginnings as Slater Industrial Academy in 1892. WSSU

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.

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 was conducted in collaboration with researchers at the University of Helsinki in Finland.

MORE ABOUT WINSTON-SALEM Although 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, WinstonSalem 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 1980’s and 1990’s, 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 has also 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.

HAYES

Director of Athletics 1st Year at WSSU Alma Mater – North Carolina Central 1965

On Nov. 3, 2009, Winston-Salem State University announced that William “Bill” Hayes, whose career in college athletics spans more than 36 years, would become the fifth Athletic Director in the history of the WSSU Athletic program. Hayes will assume his duties at WSSU on Jan. 1, 2010. Hayes comes to WSSU from Florida A&M University where he served as the Director of Athletics for the past two years. In a twoyear period that spanned from Dec. 4, 2007 until Jan. 1, 2010, Hayes was instrumental in reviving the Rattlers’ storied athletic program. Hayes helped to revitalize the Florida A&M University athletic program and was responsible for overseeing the efforts to build FAMU’s new $40 million men’s and women’s basketball arena. The Florida A&M Multipurpose Center and Teaching Gym, also used for the University’s graduation ceremonies, is a 135,000-square-foot, stateof-the-art facility, which includes updated locker rooms, separate offices for head coaches and assistant coaches, a weight room with modern equipment, classrooms, a dance studio, computer rooms and seating for more than 9,500 fans. During his tenure at Florida A&M, the Rattlers earned three Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) titles and became the first HBCU, and the only Division I-FCS school, to host ESPN’s critically acclaimed College Gameday on Nov. 15, 2008. Born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, Hayes is a veritable sports legend in North Carolina as an athlete, coach, educator, administrator and champion for young people. Hayes, who grew up just a few blocks from the campus of North Carolina Central University (NCCU) in Durham, N.C., was a multi-sport student-athlete at Durham’s Hillside High School.

Following a stellar high school career, he enrolled at NCCU and played four seasons of football as a center and linebacker, earning three AllAmerica citations before graduating in 1965 with a degree in physical education. After graduating from NCCU, Hayes worked the high school football circuit as an assistant coach making stops at Northside High School in Gretha,Virginia (1965), Paisley High School (1966) and North Forsyth High School (1967-71) in Winston-Salem, N.C. as well as his alma mater Hillside High School (1972). He accepted his first college coaching job in 1973 as the offensive backs coach at Wake Forest University, becoming the first African American coach in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Three years later, in 1976, Hayes took over as the head football coach at Winston-Salem State University a position he would hold from 1976-87. During his 12 seasons at WSSU, the Rams, captured three Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) championships (1977, 1978 and 1987) and seven division championships, turned in back-to-back undefeated regular season marks in 1977 and 1978 and posted an overall record of 89-40-2. In 1988, Hayes was hired as the head football coach at North Carolina A&T State University where he guided the Aggies to an 11-2 record and the 1999 Sheridan Broadcasting Network Black College National Championship as well as leading the Aggies to a total of three MEAC titles, two NCAA Division I-AA playoff appearances and an overall record of 106-64-0 in 15 seasons. In all, Hayes spent 27 seasons as a collegiate head football coach, compiling a 195-104-2 overall record en route to establishing himself as the winningest coach at both Winston-Salem State and North Carolina A&T as he finished his career with more victories (195) than any other college football head coach in the history of the State of North Carolina. In July of 2003, Hayes assumed the reigns of the athletic program at his alma mater, NCCU. During his four-year tenure, he made a significant impact on the program by placing great emphasis on reviving the rich traditions of Eagle Athletics. Under his direction, NCCU had the most productive fund-raising campaign of any athletics department among all Historically Black Colleges and Universities. A true fundraising visionary, Hayes implemented a revenue-generating infrastructure at North Carolina Central that helped put the Eagles on the road towards a transition to the NCAA Division I level. The foundation of Hayes’ fundraising success was built when he initiated the “$1,000 Eagles” campaign with the slogan, “1,000 Eagles Giving $1,000 ... Springboard to $1 Million.”

He was instrumental in resurrecting a dormant NCCU Athletic Hall of Fame, which held its first induction since 1997, on Oct. 15, 2004, only a year after his arrival as Athletic Director. He also spearheaded projects to install football conference championship flags in O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium and to hang jerseys of basketball legends inside McLendon-McDougald Gym. For his efforts, Hayes was twice recognized as the CIAA’s top athletic administrator when he was presented with the Jeanette A. Lee Athletic Administration Award in 2006 and 2007. Hayes was selected as the 2006 CIAA Athletics Director of the Year after the 2005-06 campaign, having guiding the program to its most successful season (at the time) in school history with four conference titles and four NCAA Championship team qualifiers during the 200506 slate. During the 2006-07 school year, Hayes directed NCCU to its most successful season in school history with four conference titles and five NCAA Championship team qualifiers as the Eagles placed 24th in the final standings of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup, the prestigious award presented annually to the best overall collegiate athletics programs in the country. Hayes’ overriding passion is for the betterment of America’s youth and he actively serves the community with various organizations, most notably with the Boy Scouts of America. A member of the Southern Region Boy Scouts Executive Board, Hayes’ exemplary efforts earned him the Boy Scouts’ highest local honor, the Silver Beaver Award. Following his Silver Beaver Award, Hayes earned the Silver Antelope Award in May of 2001, the highest regional award that can be bestowed upon a Boy Scout volunteer. Hayes has been inducted into three halls of fame, including the North Carolina Central University Alex M. Rivera Athletic Hall of Fame, the Winston-Salem State University Clarence E. “Big House” Gaines Athletic Hall of Fame, and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association John B. McLendon, Jr. Hall of Fame. He is married to the former Carolyn Pratt of Durham, NC, and they have a son, William, Jr., and a daughter, Sherri Walker.

WINSTON-SALEM STATE UNIVERSITY 2008-09 Athletics Year in Review On the surface, the 2008-09 year in athletics for Winston-Salem State University looked like baby steps, but the Rams and Lady Rams made some gigantic strides that will pay dividends for generations to come. Football With just 15 starters returning and losing 41 letterwinners from the 2007 team, there weren’t many who expected the Rams to thrive, this season; but not the Rams themselves. The team fought hard in all 11 games and battled their way to a 3-8 record with some fantastic wins this season. The Rams broke into the win column in a big way defeating the Howard Bison 34-10 at the Bowman Gray Stadium. The game saw the Rams controlled the entire game jumping out to an early 14-0 lead and never looking back in the win. The Rams would return to the win column three weeks later when the team defeated the Hampton Pirates, 35-30 for the second straight season and picked up their first road win of 2008. Highlight the win was a 106-yard blocked kick return by senior defensive back David Irizarry that turned out to be key play of the win. The Rams followed the effort by taking a clutch 27-26 win over defending Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion Delaware State. After jumping ahead of the Hornets, 14-7, the Rams gave up 19 unanswered points to the Hornets. The team was able to fight back with 13 second half points and the WSSU defense held off the Hornets to seal the win. Though the Rams only won three games in 2008, the wins were big ones and will be key building blocks in building the future of Rams football. With a number of key players lost from the previous season, a large number of young Rams stepped in for some fantastic efforts in 2008. After a rough start, WSSU redshirt-junior quarterback Jarrett Dunston continued to develop as a quarterback and became a great offensive weapon for the Rams. The redshirt-junior passed for 958 yards and rushed for a team-high nine touchdowns. Redshirt-freshman running back Nicholas Cooper also had a great season as well rushing for 488 yards, including rushing for 144 yards against Savannah State. Redshirt-senior wide receiver Bryant Bayne wouldn’t let the youngsters have all the fun, however, as he pulled in a team-high 26 catches for 353 yards and two touchdowns in just five games before missing the final six games of the season with an injury. When Bayne was sidelined by injury, freshman Dominique Fitzgerald stepped in for a 16 catches and 223 yards. The Rams’ defense was led by the junior tandem of redshirt-junior Marcus Coates safety and junior linebacker Juan Corders. Coates finished the season as the team’s leader in tackles with 60 tackles (42 solo) and 3.5 tackles for a loss. Corders was a close second with 58 tackles (29 solo) and four tackles for a loss. Coates was also one of the team’s top pass defenders with five pass breakups. Senior defensive back DeRon Middleton and redshirtjunior Alex Chandler added a pair of pass interceptions to lead the Rams secondary as well. The 2008 season was one that will pay big dividends for the Rams in the future. Volleyball The seeds planted in 2007 bloomed in the 2008 season for the Lady Rams as a number of talented newcomers from last season became key returnees this season. The team made a number of great strides this season took the team to new heights. The Lady Rams totaled 724 kills last season with 942 digs. At 4-28, the Lady Rams matched last season’s win total and had a season highlight by playing their way into the championship game of the 2008 Lady Rams Invitational Tournament. The tournament was a turning point for the Lady Rams, who had gotten off to a slow start to the season. The effort left the team playing with much more confidence and had showed a marked improvement. With the newfound confidence, the Lady Rams also took set wins from Mid-Eastern Athletic foes Bethune-Cookman, Norfolk State, and took the rival North Carolina A&T Lady Aggies to a clutch five-set match. The team did struggle to deal with injury issues, however, as the team had to deal with the loss of freshman setter Alexandria Brown, who had become a key cog in the Lady Rams’ wheel. She finished the season with a team-high 210 assists despite missing nearly 48 sets. However, senior Valentina Pushkina was able to step in a fill the void for the Lady Rams and added192 assists for the team. WSSU junior hitter Annika Barnwell led the way for the Lady Rams with a team-high 203 kills and 700 total attacks. Sophomore hitter Ashley Harris was a close second with 148 kills. Fellow sophomore Erica Cole was one of the team’s top defenders with 197 digs to lead the Lady Rams. Freshman middle blocker Jasmine Frazier made an immediate impact for the Lady Rams with a team-high 57 total blocks, edging out junior middle blocker Georgette Allen who had 51. The 2008 season was one that saw a great deal of development for the Lady Rams. Women’s Cross Country Though there was a number of new faces, the constant of successful performances stayed the same. The baby steps taken by the Rams and Lady Rams cross country teams usually came at the front of the pack this season. WSSU senior Irene Jeptolo returned for her senior season and had some phenomenal efforts for the Lady Rams. She highlighted the 2008 season with a first place finish at the Greensboro Invitational in Hagan Stone Park. The senior completed the 5K run in 19:21 through rainy weather to lead the field in the tough meet. While Jeptolo grabbed the headlines, the freshman duo of Jasmine Whitener and freshman Ashley Lawson made a pair of great debuts and showed that the future for Lady Rams cross country is set to be very bright. Whitener had a number of great finishes for the Lady Rams. She was just over a minute behind Jeptolo at the Greensboro Invitational.

WINSTON-SALEM STATE UNIVERSITY 2008-09 Athletics Year in Review Fellow freshman Ashley Lawson also had a great freshman season for the Lady Rams, placing in the top 20 twice during the season. Men’s Cross Country There was a youth movement on the Rams’ 2008 team as the team featured just one senior and three freshmen. But the youth of the team didn’t stop the squad from having a successful season. The WSSU freshman trio of Aaron Barnes, Desmond Wiggan, Elijah Strickland made their first season as Rams a fantastic one. Wiggan wasted no time at all making a name for himself as a Ram with a third place finish at the UNC-Pembroke Invitational, the first meet of his collegiate career. He finished the 5K race in 21:45.67 to pace the Rams in the event. Two weeks later, it was Barnes with the best WSSU finish at the 2008 Asics/Winthrop Invitational with a 66th place finish among 122 runners. He finished the 8K run in 27:23. He edged out Wiggan who finished 69th in 27:27. Barnes continued his great season pacing the Rams at the Greensboro Invitational with a eighth place finish in 27:44 in the 8K event among 22 teams. The 2008 season was another step forward for Rams cross country. Men’s Basketball The 2008-09 season was one filled with challenges for the Rams’ men’s basketball team, but the Rams turned those challenges into opportunities for growth and made the season one to be proud of. The Rams opened the season with an historic trip to the Bahamas for a pair of exhibition games. The Rams played two games in four days in Nassau when the team took on Bahamas Select and the Bahamas All-Stars, a pair of club teams based in Nassau. The Rams split games int eh two-game affair with a win over the Bahamas AllStars, but being edged out by the Bahamas Select team. Things got a bit tougher for the Rams when the regular season started, however, as the Rams struggled against a tough non-conference schedule with losses to Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Illinois State adding to the Rams’ early struggles. However, the team was able to battle back for a hard-fought win at South Carolina State, the first win over the Bulldogs since the Rams’ move to NCAA Division I and since joining the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The win was an important one for the Rams as the team followed the effort by winning three of their next five games, including picking up a 66-51 road win at North Carolina Central and home wins over Averett and Columbia Union. The Rams’ momentum didn’t last however, with some struggles in the bulk of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference schedule. After dropping six straight losses, the Rams bounced back in a big way taking a pair of road wins at Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman. The wins were two of three wins over a five game stretch by the Rams. The Rams would return to the win column with a 68-64 road win at Norfolk State, the MEAC runner-up in the conference championship tournament. As a team, the Rams had a solid effort averaging 58.0 points and 33.7 rebounds per game. The effort was a solid one, but the Rams struggled on the defensive end allowing 67.4 points per game to their opponents. The tandem of senior forward Jamal Durham and junior guard Brian Fisher led the charge for the Rams this season. Fisher was the team’s leading scorer at 13.9 points per game while Durham was a close second at 12.9 points per game. Durham also led the Rams in rebounding at 5.8 rebounds per game. Sophomore center Paul Davis added a teamhigh 46 blocked shots. Though the season didn’t see as many wins as Rams wanted, the squad saw tremendous growth and it will be the building block for generations to come. Women’s Basketball The 2008-09 women’s basketball season turned out to be a rollercoaster for the Lady Rams, but the team made the season one with more highs that lows. After struggling for much of the season, the Lady Rams found their stride late in final stretch with a four wins in their final seven games and posting wins win three of the final four games of the season. As a team, the Lady Rams averaged 52.5 points per game and were especially tough in close games. Of the Lady Rams’ six wins, four were by five points or less. Highlighting the Lady Rams’ season was a clutch 59-56 win over the Howard Lady Bison that saw WSSU sophomore guard Rene Rector hit a three-pointer with just a few seconds left on the clock. It was Rector who led the way for the Lady Rams with a 10.1 point-per-game scoring average this season and 51 three-pointers made. Redshirt-sophomore guard MaLisa Bumpus who had a 12.2 scoring average, but she was only eligible to play after the end of the fall semester and suffered a season-ending injury with two games left to play. Sophomore forward Vontisha Woods continued her stellar career at Winston-Salem State, averaging 9.9 points per game and leading the team in rebounding at 8.5 rebounds per game. Redshirt-senior guard Keoshia Worthy capped a stellar career at WSSU with an 8.7 point-per-game scoring average and a team-high 91 assists.

WINSTON-SALEM STATE UNIVERSITY 2008-09 Athletics Year in Review Women’s Indoor Track & Field The 2008-09 indoor track & field season was another great one in the short, but storied history of Lady Rams track & field. The WSSU core of sprinters made a number of great strides during the indoor season. The Lady Rams were especially impressive in the women’s 60m dash where the trio of senior Wykeita Barnett, junior Kayla Long, and freshmen Denesha Jiles had some phenomenal efforts during the indoor season. Barnett qualified for the finals in the 60m dash in all three of the indoor meets that she competed in.

As Collins heads into his fourth season leading the Rams he is poised to make history as he has assembled one of the finest teams in the history of the Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball program, an athletic team that boasts a resume full of accomplishments which include 10 conference titles and the 1967 NCAA men’s basketball championship and showcases a program that has seen 11 former players continue their careers in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

A relentless recruiter, Collins and his experienced coaching staff continue to bring talent to the campus of Winston-Salem State University and will welcome the addition of nine newcomers in 2008-09 as he prepares to help the Rams add a new chapter to the storied tradition of basketball at WSSU. A true leader and teacher, Collins has overseen the Rams’ transition from a Division II power into a talented and well-coached competitor at the Division I level as a member of the MidEastern Athletic Conference. Collins, who was named Winston-Salem State University’s sixth head men’s basketball coach on Sept. 5, 2006, helped the Rams make history in his first season on the bench as WSSU participated in their first year of Division I play.

Under the leadership 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 different NCAA conferences en route to logging over 25,000 miles of travel in 2006-07. Quality coaching and perseverance made history in 2006-07 as the Rams earned their first Division I win over a Division I program on Jan. 18, 2006 when WSSU handed MEAC member Norfolk State University an 81-71 defeat 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. Year two on the bench for Collins saw a marked improvement for the Rams as WSSU posted 12 wins including seven victories over Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opponents. Among the seven conference victories included a sweep of Howard, a victory over MEAC-leading Norfolk State and a victory over arch-rival North Carolina A&T in front of a sold-out crowd of over 6,000 fans at the LJVM Coliseum Annex. Despite playing a full MEAC schedule, the Rams were once again road warriors as WSSU traveled to Ames, Iowa to participate in the Iowa State Cyclone Classic in a tournament that saw WSSU earn a victory over Atlantic Sun Conference runner-up Lipscomb as well as completing trips to Pittsburgh, Pa. to face national power Duquesne University; Manhattan, Ks. to face AP Player of the Year and second overall NBA Draft choice Michael Beasley and nationally-ranked Kansas State University; Tampa, Fla. to face Big East Conference member USF; as well as a late season trip to both Daytona Beach, Fla. (BethuneCookman) and Tallahassee, Fla. ( Florida A&M).

The third year on the bench saw Collins and his staff lead the Rams to an overall mark of 8-22 as the relative youth of the Rams was evident during the course of a long and grueling MEAC basketball schedule. Despite posting single-digit wins, Collins and his staff made significant strides in both the classroom and the community as he, his staff and his student-athletes continued to embody the motto of Winston-Salem State University “Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve” as three players earned degrees and his student-athletes gave back more than 100 hours of service to their community. This season, under the tutelage and leadership of Collins, the Rams continue to make strides not only in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, but on a national level as the young Rams will not only complete a full MEAC schedule in 2009-10 but will start the season in the Pacific Northwest as they open play at the 2009-10 Basketball Travelers Invitational versus Oregon, Colorado State and UC Davis. A valued member of the Winston-Salem State University family, 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 MidEastern 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 Most 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

Despite the difficult nonconference road schedule, the Rams were able to more than double their win total in 2007-08 as WSSU earned 12 total wins and dropped seven more contests by a combined 34 points. In 2007-08 he led the Rams to a 12-18 record against many of the nation’s best basketball programs as WSSU continued their transition to the highest level of intercollegiate competition and Division I classification.

2009-10 WSSU MEN’S BASKETBALL

SEASON OUTLOOK When it comes to basketball at Winston-Salem State University, high expectations come with the territory. With a team history that includes a national championship, 10 conference titles and over 1,000 victories there is a lot to live up to for anyone who dons the WSSU red and white. A strong showing last year that saw the team win nearly 10 games will give the Rams much more to live up to this season. The 2009-10 Rams are more than ready to live up to expectations. Led by an experienced group of returnees that include three starters and many of the team’s statistical leaders, this season’s Rams are ready to face the challenges of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. “Right now, this team is a mixture of youth and experience,” Winston-Salem State head coach Bobby Collins commented. “We’re one year more experienced with nine returning letterwinners including a trio of starters in Brian Fisher, Paul Davis and Diontate Gibson. Couple that with nine talented newcomers and I think that this team will be very competitive this season.” The Rams return a talented group of players as they return the services of nine letterwinners, eight of whom recorded at least one start last season. In addition to the returnees the Rams will welcome a talented group of nine newcomers who give the Rams the depth needed to complete the team’s challenging schedule of games. Of the Rams’ 18 active roster members half of the team will be newcomers to the squad. “We’ve got a lot of new guys, and hopefully, the returners can be leaders,” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins added. “But the best thing about this team is that they are good character young men with a wealth of basketball talent.” Leading the way for the Rams this season will be senior guard Brian Fisher, the team’s leading scorer last season at 13.9 points per game. An athletic talent and an aggressive player on the perimeter, Fisher played in 28 games last season and started in 27 contests missing only two games due to injury. Also returning from last season’s team was the team’s top defensive player in sophomore center Paul Davis. Davis is the Rams leading returning rebounder (5.4 rpg) and blocked shots (46).

BACKCOURT Though talented, the Rams will feature a host of newcomers in the backcourt this season. There’s no need for Ram fans to be discouraged, however, as the Rams have an experienced pair of returnees that will look to be leaders among the young Ram guards. The tandem of

senior guards Brian Fisher and Diontae Gibson will lead the way for the Rams this season. Fisher is the Rams’ leading returning scorer at nearly 14 points per game (13.9) and also led the team in minutes played last season (30.9 mpg). A talented scorer, Fisher heads into the season needing only 42 points to become the 26th member of the Rams’ 1,000-point club. Gibson added 6.9 points and 2.9 rebounds per game and started 15 games for the Rams last year. The pair will help to team a backcourt that features four talented newcomers. The Rams will welcome back the services of four returning letterwinners in sophomores Michael Bonner and Lamar Monger, junior Ricky Bolton, Jr. and redshirt senior Brandon Hobbs. Hobbs is the leading returning scorer of the group as he touts a 3.3 points per game scoring average and reaps the benefits of starting nine games for the Rams last season. Lamar Monger returns his 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds per contest and similarly to Hobbs, Monger started nine games for the Rams in 2008-09. Rounding out the returnees for WSSU will be Ricky Bolton, Jr. (0.4 ppg/0.1 rpg) and Michael Bonner (0.9 ppg/0/9 rpg) a pair of reserve guards that appeared in 27 games with three starts last season. Joining the Rams in the backcourt for their first year as members of the WSSU men’s basketball team are four talented newcomers that will make an immediate impact in 2009-10. The crown jewel of the Rams’ backcourt recruiting class may be none other than Marcus Wells, a 6-1, 175-pound slasher from Southern Durham High School. Wells, the third ranked point guard in the state of North Carolina and the 29th-ranked point guard in the nation (ESPN. com) will immediately compete for playing time this season as he is coming off of an award-filled career at Southern Durham High School where he was an All-State selection with 18 points, six rebounds, four steals and five assists per game. Wells and the Rams will be joined by Andrew Jackson, a 6-2, 180-pound guard from Wilmington, N.C. who joins the Rams following two exceptional seasons at Brunswick Community College where he helped to lead BCC to a 52-12 record with 10 points, five assists and four rebounds per contest. Dominic Alston will help to bolster the Rams’ backcourt depth as he comes to WSSU by way of Clinton Junior College where he helped to lead CJC to a Carolinas Junior College regular-season title and a championship

game berth. The 6-2, 190-pounder comes off of a 200809 season at CJC where he averaged 10 points and five rebounds per game. The Rams backcourt will surely be in capable hands during the 2009-10 season as a combination of experienced veterans, newcomers, and transfer studentathletes will help the Rams try to brave a difficult non-conference schedule before jumping into the grind of trying to excel in the ultra-competitive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

led Asheville Christian to a 26-5 record and a state championship his senior season, Johnson turned down a host of Division I programs including the University of South Florida to become a member of the historic WSSU men’s basketball program. Johnson will be joined by high school teammate Ignas Palaima, a 6-11, 230-pound forward from Klaipeda, Lithuania who signed with the Rams over offers from the University of South Carolina and Memphis. Palaima is coming off of a state-championship-winning season where he averaged 13 points and nine rebounds for Asheville Christian School.

FRONTCOURT The bulk of the Rams’ strength will return in the frontcourt with the squad returning its top forwards and centers from last season despite losing the talents of forward Jamal Durham who closed out his career at WSSU with 1,256 points and a spot at 13th on the Rams’ all-time scoring charts. Leading the way for the Rams this season will be junior center Paul Davis, the team’s leading returning rebounder and shot blocker from last season. Last season, Davis averaged 5.4 rebounds per game for the Rams and led the team with 46 blocked shots. As a sophomore, Davis was a force for the Rams at both ends of the court with two double-double games, eight double-figure scoring performances and a team-leading pair of double-figure rebounding games en route to 5.4 points per game.

SCHEDULE The 2009-10 season will offer a number of challenges for the Rams who for the third season will play a complete schedule of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) competition. Last season, the Rams were 5-13 against MEAC teams in their second season of conference play. The Rams will have a rather large set of challenges before they begin play against MEAC teams. WSSU faces three major conference opponents to start the season as they travel to the Pacific Northwest to face the Ducks of Oregon, the Aggies of UC-Davis and the Rams of Colorado State in Eugene, Oregon at the Basketball Travelers Tournament hosted by the University of Oregon.

Junior forward McIntoche Alcius returns to the Rams’ lineup in 2009-10 on the heels of a successful sophomore season that saw him appear in 28 games with nine starts. The 6-6 Alcius came into his own in 2008-09 with 2.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.

Before beginning the bulk of their MEAC play the Rams will face the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest University, the 49ers of UNC-Charlotte and the Terrapins of Maryland before facing the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech for the third time in four seasons.

Head coach Bobby Collins has bolstered his roster most significantly in the frontcourt as he and the Rams will welcome the addition of five talented newcomers.

The team will play a complete schedule of MEAC games and will face defending MEAC regular season and MEAC Tournament champion Morgan State University twice in 2009-10.

Joining the Rams after sitting out last season, Shelton Carter, a 6-5 forward who transferred from Charleston Southern University will immediately add to the Rams’ lineup. The 2007 Big South Conference All-Freshman Team selection sat out 2008-09 per NCAA transfer rules and will be expected to contribute immediately for WSSU. Stephon Platt, a 6-8, 235-pound forward from Laurinburg, N.C. will immediately add size and strength to the Rams’ post play as the 2008-09 McDonald’s All-America nominee comes to WSSU after a stellar career at Scotland High School where he was named the team’s most valuable player for three seasons.

For the third straight season, the Rams will face the North Carolina Central Eagles in a bonus game at the 2010 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Championship Tournament. For the second consecutive season, the tournament will be held in the Rams’ home city of Winston-Salem. The Rams will have a number of challenges ahead of them, but with the team’s strong cast of returnees and a talented class of newcomers, the 2009-10 Rams will definitely be up to the challenge.

Adding much-needed size to the WSSU roster will be Sam Johnson, a 6-8, 210-pound center from Asheville Christian School in Asheville, N.C. A player that

Halftime: WSSU 18, Georgia Tech 29 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Georgia Tech-None Officials: Raymond Styons, Tony Dawkins, Frank Raposo Attendance: 6,922 ATLANTA, Ga. – The Winston-Salem State men’s basketball team opened its 2008-09 campaign with a 92-47 loss at Georgia Tech on Friday night in the Alexander Memorial Coliseum. The Yellow Jackets defense dominated the young Rams as they held its visiting opponent to just 26.2 percent shooting from the field, 27.3 percent from the beyond the arc and 30.4 percent from the free throw line. The Rams (0-1) were on the board first with a Paul Davis layup, but the Yellow Jackets quickly took control with an 11-0 run over a four-minute span early in the first half to lead 17-4. A jumper by Diontae Gibson snapped Georgia Tech’s run and the Rams closed within eight points, 20-12, at the 9:55 mark. That would be the closest the Rams would get, however, as the Yellow Jackets found their momentum and led 49-29 at the half. Georgia Tech (1-0) remained in control for the second half, holding the Rams to just 18 points.The home team continued to stretch its lead and shut down WSSU for its first win of the season. Senior Jamal Durham led the Rams with 11 points, while freshman guard Lamar Monger and Gibson added seven points apiece in their first contest with WSSU. Monger led the team with six rebounds, while Durham had five.

Halftime: WSSU 25, Eatern Kentucky 25 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Eastern Kentucky-None Officials: Bill Lopina, Rob Kruger, Brian Fitzgerald Attendance: 4,100 RICHMOND, Ky. - Winston-Salem State University head men’s basketball coach Bobby Collins’ homecoming to his college alma mater was bittersweet as his Rams fell in defeat to the Colonels of Eastern Kentucky University by the score of 69-44 in non-conference basketball action on Tuesday evening from McBrayer Arena in Richmond, Kentucky. Collins, a 1991 graduate of EKU and a four-year letterman on the Colonels’ men’s basketball team saw his young Rams turn in a solid first half of play before the Colonels, a team only two years removed from an Ohio Valley Conference championship and an NCAA Tournament berth, used a second-half run to hand the Rams their second loss of the season. First half action was a closely contested affair as neither team led by more than six points during the game’s first 20 minutes of play. The Rams used their athleticism and quickness to their advantage during the first half as senior forward Jamal Durham had his way with three different Colonel defenders. Durham led all scorers with 10 points and six rebounds during the half as he used his athleticism to generate easy scoring chances. Playing in their home opener, in front of a raucous home crowd, EKU seemingly countered WSSU’s every move as preseason All-Ohio Valley Conference selection Mike Rose tallied eight points and three rebounds, including back-to-back three pointers late in the half, to prevent the Rams from surging ahead. Five Rams and six Colonels would record points in the half as the two teams headed to the locker room deadlocked at 25-25 for the halftime intermission.

Gani Lawal led Georgia Tech’s five players who shot in double digits with 18 points. Maurice Miller added 17 points, while Zachary Peacock and Lance Storrs scored 14 points each. Although the Yellow Jackets shot 54.2 percent from the field, the Rams were able to hold them to 35.3 (6-of-17) percent shooting from beyond the arc.

The tie would be short-lived however, as second half action belonged squarely to the Colonels as Eastern Kentucky used a 24-8 run over the first 12 minutes of the second period en route to jumping out to a 49-33 advantage, a margin from which the Rams would never recover.

Winston-Salem State University returns to action on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 7:00 p.m. when it travels to Richmond, Ky. to face the Colonels of Eastern Kentucky. The meeting will be the first ever between the two teams as Bobby Collins leads his Rams against his alma mater. Collins, who graduated in 1991, was a four-year letterwinner for the Colonels.

The EKU lead would balloon to as many as 26 points in the contest as the Colonels used a 51 percent shooting performance to put the game on ice. Jamal Durham and Paul Davis led the Rams with 12 points each in the contest with Durham narrowly missing a double-double as he pulled down nine rebounds in a losing effort. Papa Oppong led the Colonels with 15 points and eight rebounds in the win. The loss drops Winston-Salem State to 0-2 on the season while Eastern Kentucky improves to 1-1 with the victory.

Halftime: WSSU 23, UC Santa Barbara 34 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, UC Santa Barbara-None Officials: Steve Skiles, Terry Wymer, Dwayne Gladden Attendance: 4,125 NORMAL, Ill. – Despite having three players score in double figures and notwithstanding a season-best 40 percent shooting performance from the field, the Rams of Winston-Salem State fell in defeat to the Gauchos of the University of California-Santa Barbara on Saturday evening in day one action from the World Vision Invitational hosted by Illinois State University.

WSSU’s 31 total points marked the lowest scoring output since scoring only 24 points in a loss to West Virginia Tech during the 1942-43 season, the Rams’ second-ever season of basketball.

The Rams hit four of their first five shots in the contest en route to opening up a six-point advantage over the Gauchos, but could not continue their hot shooting as WSSU cooled off as they would hit only nine of their first 26 first-half shots (34.6 percent).

WSSU head basketball coach Bobby Collins’ plan to slow down the high-scoring Demon Deacons worked exactly as planned during the contest’s first 20 minutes as the Rams held WFU to only 21 points on seven-of-20 shooting during the half as the two teams traded leads twice and were deadlocked on two other occasions.

UCSB used 11 second-chance points and 12 points in the paint during the game’s first 20 minutes of play as they erased WSSU’s advantage and mounted a run of their own, using a 24-13 run during the final 12 minutes of half to take a 71-58 lead into the halftime intermission.

“I thought in the first half we did a very good job containing their triple penetration and their transition buckets. We had a game plan to slow them down a little bit. We thought if we slowed them down we would have a chance to be in the game offensively” Collins commented in post-game interviews.

Second half action saw the Gauchos open the half with a 20-9 run as UCSB pushed their lead to a game-high 20 points with 13 minutes to play in the contest.

Trailing by only seven points headed into the second half the Rams looked to mount a challenge behind the solid play of senior forward Jamal Durham who recorded 11 points in the game’s final 20 minutes.

Trailing by 20 points the Rams mounted a run of their own as WSSU cut the UC Santa Barbara lead to only nine points with little more than four minutes to play on a pair of Isiah Tucker free throws.

WFU however, had other ideas as the Deacs used a scorching 68.2 percent shooting performance in the final 20 minutes of play as they mounted a pair of offensive runs from which the Rams would never recover. The Demon Deacons wasted little time in mounting their first offensive run of the second half as Wake Forest outscored WSSU 17-4 during the first seven minutes of the second half en route to a 20-point lead. The lead would grow to as large as 31 points with 6:31 remaining in the contest when a Jeff Teague threepointer put the game out of reach for the Rams. Durham’s team-high 14 points, including a pair of three-point field goals led the Rams as he was the only WSSU player to score in double-figures. “I am glad that Jamal hit some shots tonight” Collins added. “He has been in foul trouble the past couple of games and hasn’t been able to get into an offensive rhythm. Tonight he played well for us and that will help us going forward this season”

However, the Gauchos put the Rams away with a quick 5-0 run on a pair of layups and a free throw as UCSB relegated WSSU to 0-4 on the season. The Rams were led by Jamal Durham and Isiah Tucker who each tallied 13 points in the loss. Joining Durham and Tucker in double-figures, Brian Fisher recorded 12 points in his first action since suffering an ankle injury on Nov. 18. Leading the Gauchos was Chris Devine who recorded 12 points and 10 rebounds in a winning effort. UCSB improves to 2-3 on the season while the Rams fall to 0-4 with the loss. The Rams return to action on Saturday as they face the host-team Redbirds of Illinois State University in day two action from the World Vision Invitational at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.

Jeff Teague led the Demon Deacons with 14 points on six-of-eight shooting from the field as Wake Forest improves to 3-0 on the season.

The Rams and Redbirds combined for a Redbird Arena-low as the two programs combined for only 86 total points.

Halftime: WSSU 32, Nicholls State 25 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Nicholls State-None Officials: Dwayne Gladden, Bo Boroski, Steve Skiles Attendance: 111 NORMAL, Ill. -- The Rams are thankful it’s over. The Winston-Salem State University Rams’ Thanksgiving weekend road trip ended on Sunday afternoon at Redbird Arena with a 67-61 defeat to the Nicholls State University Colonels as WSSU closed out three games in three days with a trio of losses to drop to 0-6 on the season. The game started promisingly for the Rams as WSSU turned in their best single-half shooting performance of the season as Winston-Salem State hit 10 of their 19 first-half shots en route to their first halftime lead of the season at 32-25. The seven-point advantage, the Rams only halftime lead of the year thus far, was part of a 52.6 percent shooting performance during the game’s first 20 minutes of play, a shooting display that included an impressive four-of-five effort from behind the three-point line.

The two teams started the game by combining for 11 three-point field goal attempts as the Rams and Redbirds hit only two of those 11 field goals to start the game as only eight points were scored during the first 6:04 of the first half.

Seven WSSU players would tally points in the opening half including a career-high eight points from Brandon Hobbs as head coach Bobby Collins’ Rams headed to the locker room with a comfortable seven-point cushion.

Using their deliberate time-consuming offense, the Rams again attempted to slow down a high-powered offense as they held the Redbirds to only 22 points during the first 20 minutes of play.

Second half action would belong to the Colonels as Nicholls State missed only two of their 16 field goal attempts in the game’s final period.

“We wanted to keep it close in the first half” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. “We did that. We slowed down a very up-tempo team and had them where he wanted them, within striking distance headed into the second half. We did that against Eastern Kentucky, we did that against Wake Forest, and we did it again here tonight” Collins added.

The Colonels mounted a 14-of-16 shooting performance that was capped by a six-of-seven sharpshooting display from behind the three-point line.

Unfortunately for the Rams, their lack of offensive firepower would again become evident as ISU capitalized on a pair of WSSU scoring droughts that totaled over nine minutes during the second half as they outscored the Rams 31-16 in the game’s final 20 minutes of play en route to a 20-point victory. “We played defense well. We stopped them from scoring. We can definitely defend, but we miss out on easy scoring opportunities and it is a run and momentum killer” Collins said. “It kills you to miss those easy ones. You don’t get back and dig with the urgency when you miss easy buckets on the offensive end, and again tonight it hurt us”.

NSU’s Anthony Bose led the Colonels’ charge as he hit five of his seven three-point field goal attempts en route to a team-high 21 points. Winston-Salem State’s Jamal Durham refused to allow his team to back down as he nearly matched Bose basketfor-basket as he earned a season-high 22 points, 17 of which came in the second half of play. The difference in the contest would be NSU’s 12-3 run over a five minute span late in the second half as the Colonels put the Rams away with a run that saw Nicholls State hit all six of their shots during a span that turned a tie game into a contest in which the Colonels enjoyed a nine-point lead.

Jamar Slocum scored a career-high nine points for the Rams in the loss as he led WSSU in scoring. For the first time this season Jamal Durham did not lead WSSU in points as he tallied seven points and pulled down five rebounds in a losing effort.

Trailing by nine points with three minutes to play the Rams were never able to get closer than three points the rest of the way, ultimately falling in defeat by the game’s final six-point margin.

Champ Oguchi led two Redbirds in double-figures as he recorded 17 points in the victory.

The loss drops the Rams to 0-6 on the season as WSSU continues to look for their first victory of the year. The win moves Nicholls State to 2-3 on the season.

The loss drops the Rams to 0-5 on the season while Illinois State remains undefeated with an unblemished 6-0 record.

Halftime: WSSU 26, South Carolina State 35 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, South Carolina State-None Officials: Leon Sandiford, Harold E. Harris, Jr., Scott Young Attendance: 1,361 ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- The Winston-Salem State Rams (1-6) picked up their first win of the season, defeating the South Carolina State Bulldogs (4-3) in 68-65 road thriller Saturday evening. Despite trailing all game long, the Rams battled back to claim their first lead of the game with 00:17 on the clock as freshman guard Diontae Gibson hit a clutch three-pointer that sealed the win for the Rams. The Rams exorcised a number of demons in the loss as the team snapped an eight-game losing streak dating back to last season and recorded their first road win since defeating Bethune-Cookman in Daytona Beach last season. After opening the 2008-09 season with a 33.1% field goal percentage in their first six games, the Rams shot a scorching 47.5% from the field and scored a team season-high 68 points to pull out the victory. Even more impressive for the Rams was the fact that the team pulled out the victory despite missing leading scorer Jamal Durham who missed his first game in 97 outings. The senior forward suffered a shoulder injury in Friday’s practice session and was unable to suit up for the Rams. The WSSU tandem of junior guard Brian Fisher and freshman guard Diontae Gibson led the way for the Rams, combining for 45 of the team’s 68 points in the contest. Fisher led the WSSU attack with a team-high 22 points in the game while Gibson added 13 points, including going 2-for-2 from the three-point line, including the game winner. WSSU sophomore center Paul Davis also had a breakout game with 10 points and seven rebounds in the game. The Rams had a slow start out of the gate as the team fell into an early 17-4 hole to open the game. A pair of jumpers by Gibson and Fisher turned out to be the only field goals that the Rams could manage in the first nine minutes of the game and left the Rams trailing early in the first half.Though the team was down early, the Rams continued to battle down the stretch of the half. A Fisher jumper with 5:59 left in the half would cap a WSSU run and pulled the Rams to within seven points, 21-28. The two teams would continue to battle down the stretch of the half as Gibson’s first three-pointer of the game pulled the Rams to within five points, 26-31 with 3:14 left in the first half. The Rams continued to battle and kept the game in reach as the team took a 26-35 score into the locker room at halftime. The second half began in a fashion similar to the first half as South Carolina State outscored the Rams 8-4 in the early going to take a 43-30 lead with 16:24 left in the game. Backed into a corner, the Rams came out swinging as a Fisher jumper at the 10:45 mark cut the Rams’ deficit down to six points, 45-51. With the game within reach, the Rams made their move in the final minutes of the game and fought their way to the victory. It was at the 4:50 mark that the Rams would make their move as the squad turned up its defensive efforts, holding the home team without a field goal for the rest of the game. In the final five minutes of the game, the Rams outscored the Bulldogs, 15-4 in the final five minutes to take over the game. The excitement began at the 1:01 mark when WSSU freshman Brandon Hobbs hit a free throw that left the Rams trailing 65-63. The free throw was set up by sophomore guard Isiah Tucker who was fouled while driving to the basket and was injured and not able to take the free throws. After a miss on the second free throw, Davis would tip the ball in to tie the game at 65-65 with 00:59. WSSU sophomore forward McIntoche Alcius would get a steal on the ensuing South Carolina State inbounds. Following a timeout by WSSU head coach Bobby Collins,Tucker would find a wide open Gibson on the left baseline to set up the game-winning shot with 00:17 left.

Halftime: WSSU 20, North Carolina State 40 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, North Carolina State-None Officials: Bernard Clinton, Mike Eades, Tony Dawkins Attendance: 5,384 RALEIGH, N.C. -- Winston-Salem State’s shooting woes continued on Saturday afternoon at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, N.C. as the Rams shot less than 30 percent from the field for the fifth time this season en route to falling in defeat to the North Carolina State Wolfpack 74-46 to drop to 1-7 in 2008-09. The loss, the Rams sixth loss to an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent in as many attempts, saw the Rams hit only 18 of their 64 attempts from the field including a dismal two-of-18 shooting performance from behind the three-point line. North Carolina State wasted no time in jumping out on the Rams early as the Wolfpack mounted a 16-5 run to open the contest en route to an early 11-point advantage less than seven minutes into the contest. WSSU looked flat against the energized Wolfpack who moved to 5-1 on the season with the win. NC State hit six of their first nine shots from the field during the run including a pair of dunks and a pair of layups as they opened up a margin from which the Rams would never recover. “I am very disappointed in our play tonight” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. “We didn’t have the intensity or execution that we needed to win the game. We didn’t take advantage of second chances and overall our execution was poor” Collins added. The Rams’ upperclassmen found scoring difficult as N.C. State relied upon a defensive game plan that took senior forward Jamal Durham and junior guard Brian Fisher, the Rams’ top two scorers, out of the contest. Despite getting 12 points from Durham, eight of which came courtesy of the free throw line, Durham and Fisher combined to go five-of-23 from the field. Durham led the Rams with 12 points and Fisher chipped in with seven points in the losing effort yet neither was a factor in the contest, due in part to the Wolfpack’s defensive depth. “N.C. State was physically stronger than us and it showed.We tried to use our quickness but they were able to keep us in check. Their depth was a definite factor in tonight’s ballgame” Collins commented. While the Rams could never find their shooting touch, the Wolfpack enjoyed success at the offensive end of the court as NCSU hit 28 of their 54 shots in the contest as they posted a 51.9 percent shooting performance. Leading the way for the Wolfpack was Ben McCauley who tallied a game-high 14 points in the win. He was joined in double figures by Trevor Ferguson and Dennis Horner who recorded 11 and 12 points respectively. The loss drops WSSU to 1-7 on the season while the Wolfpack improve to 5-1 with the win.

DURHAM, N.C. -- The Winston-Salem State University Rams waited 278 days to earn their revenge against the Eagles of North Carolina Central University. The wait was well worth it for the Rams as they avenged last year’s season-ending loss on Thursday evening in Durham by keeping NCCU winless in 2008-09 by handing them a 66-51 loss on their home court.

Halftime: WSSU 33, Averett 25 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Averett-None Officials: Victor Montgomery, Michael Drummond, Carl Blair Attendance: 488

Winston-Salem State jumped out to an early 7-0 lead as the Rams equaled their largest lead of the season to date, a lead that dated back to Nov. 30 in a contest that WSSU would ultimately drop to Nicholls State.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- All the Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team wanted for Christmas was a victory, a win that would extend their win streak to two games and Averett delivered the gifts for the Rams on Saturday afternoon at the C.E. Gaines Center. The Cougars gift-wrapped 26 turnovers as WSSU earned a hard-fought 68-55 victory against a very talented Averett squad in men’s college basketball action.

The Rams used a first half of play in which they would turn in their best shooting period of play, a 56.5 percent performance, as 11 players recorded playing time in the game’s first 20 minutes en route to helping WSSU hit 13 of their 23 first-half shots.

With semester finals completed and a 10-day holiday layoff ahead, the Rams benefitted from 14 points from Brian Fisher and 15 points from Diontae Gibson as WSSU earned their second consecutive victory to improve to 3-7 overall. The Rams benefitted from a season-high four players who recorded double-digit point totals in the victory.

The second half was much of the same for the Rams as they used 26 points in the paint to earn their second victory of the season.

Senior forward Jamal Durham chipped in with 13 points as he surpassed the 1,000 career point mark for the Rams. With 13 points Durham is the 25th player in WSSU history to eclipse the 1000-point milestone as he finished the game with 1,005 career points.

Leading the way for the Rams were Jamal Durham and Brian Fisher who each tallied 19 points in the victory.

Brian Fisher started the contest with back-to-back three-point field goals en route to helping the Rams jump start their offense in the early going as the junior guard put the Rams ahead by six points early.

The pair of upperclassmen combined to hit 15 of their 26 field goal attempts in the game including hitting six of their 11 attempts from three-point range.

Undaunted the Cougars responded as Averett’s Jonathan Rumley, a Winston-Salem native and 2003 graduate of Glenn High School, scored four points of his own in the first half as the Cougars would trail the Rams by only eight points, at 33-25, headed into the halftime intermission.

Joining Durham and Fisher in double figures was Diontae Gibson who recorded 10 points in the victory. “We got exactly what we needed out of our experienced guys tonight” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. “Jamal [Durham] and Fish [Brian Fisher] provided us the spark tonight. Prior to the game tonight, we talked about what sacrifices each of our guys had to make, what things each of our young men had to focus on, and our guys really took that to heart. They did what we asked and because of that effort, we got a crucial win tonight” Collins added. The victory improves the Rams to 2-7 overall in 2008-09. The loss drops the Eagles to 0-13 on the year.

Averett would cut the WSSU lead to as little as only one point, at 42-41 with just over 12 minutes to play in the contest, but the Rams would answer as they used a 26-8 run over the final 11 minutes of play en route to earning the 15-point victory. “That is a team that played us today like many of the teams in the MEAC will play us” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. “They are a very talented basketball team and we had our hands full today. We will take this win but you can say that we won’t be putting them on the schedule again anytime soon. They are definitely a very talented team” Collins added. Winston-Salem State improves to 3-7 overall with the win while Averett falls to 6-4 overall with the loss. The Rams return to action on Dec. 30, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. as they travel to Norfolk, Va. to face the Monarchs of Old Dominion University.

NORFOLK,Va. -- The Monarchs wasted no time on Tuesday evening at the Ted Constant Convocation Center as they roared out of the locker room with back-to-back-to-back three-point field goals as part of a gameopening 20-4 run en route to downing the Winston-Salem State University Rams 80-50 in a non-conference men’s college basketball contest.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Winston-Salem State University Rams were too much for the Pioneers of Columbia Union on Monday evening at the C.E. Gaines Center as WSSU cruised to an easy 85-61 victory behind a season-high 85 total points, led by a 19–point performance from junior guard Brian Fisher.

The Rams, playing their 10th game away from home, fell victim to poor shooting as they had difficulty finding their shooting touch in WSSU’s first game action since a Dec. 20th win over Averett, a 10-day span over the semester break. Following three consecutive three-pointers, the Monarchs raced out to a 16-point lead at 20-4 as ODU opened up an advantage that they would never relinquish en route to their seventh consecutive victory. WSSU head coach Bobby Collins, who served as an assistant coach at ODU during the Monarchs’ 1994-95 NCAA Tournament run which included a triple-overtime victory over Villanova, could only watch as his Rams shot below 40 percent from the field for the seventh time in 2008-09. WSSU would hit only 16 of their 63 field goal attempts in the contest including a four of 13 shooting performance from behind the three-point line. The 25.4 percent shooting output marks the Rams’ worst shooting display of the season, surpassing the Rams’ previous season-low of 26.2 percent in the season-opener at Georgia Tech on Nov. 14. Conversely the Monarchs mounted a 26 of 54 shooting display from the field as ODU connected on nearly 50 percent (48.1 percent) of their shots over the span of 40 minutes. Leading the way for the Rams was Brian Fisher with 15 points as he was the only WSSU player to score in double-figures. Gerald Lee led three ODU players in double-figures with 18 points. The loss drops the Rams to 3-8 on the season while the Monarchs improve to 8-3 with the victory. Winston-Salem State returns to action on Jan. 5 as they play host to the Pioneers of Columbia Union at the C.E. Gaines Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

WSSURAMS.COM

Fisher opened the contest with a three-point field goal en route to his sixth double-digit scoring output of the season as the Rams jumped out to an early lead that they would never relinquish. Hitting half of their first-period field goals, the Rams would finish the game’s first 20 minutes of play with their largest lead of the season, a 25-point advantage, as they closed the half holding an insurmountable 42-17 lead. Fisher would contribute 10 of his game-high 19 points in the first half, including a pair of three-point field goals. Second half action would see the Rams push their lead to as many as 29 points as Fisher hit his third, and final, three-point field goal with 10:50 remaining in the contest. Up by a season-high 29 points, Bobby Collins would empty his bench as 14 WSSU players would record playing time in the contest with 13 different players recording points. Fisher led all scorers with 19 points as he was one of three WSSU players to score in double figures. Joining Durham in double-digits were Paul Davis and Jamal Durham with 10 and 15 points respectively. In another highlight, crowd-favorite reserve guard Ricky Bolton, Jr. recorded his first points of the season in the victory as he hit one of his two attempts from the free-throw line. Leading the Pioneers in a losing effort was Mark McNair who tallied 17 points on five-of-15 shooting from the field as he was the only Columbia Union player to score in double-figures. The Rams’ 52.5 percent shooting from the field marked WSSU’s best shooting performance of the season as WSSU upped its record to 4-8 overall. Columbia Union fell to 1-12 with the loss. Winston-Salem State returns to action on Saturday, Jan. 10 as they travel to Princess Anne, Maryland to face the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore. Tip-off is slated for 4:00 p.m.

Halftime: Maryland-Eastern Shore-39, WSSU 24 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Maryland-Eastern Shore-None Officials: Robert James, Jr., Gregg Durah, Lawrence Truman Attendance: 1,000 PRINCESS ANNE, Md. -- It was a tale of two halves on Saturday afternoon at the W.P. Hytche Center in Princess Anne, Md. as the Winston-Salem State University Rams played two distinctly different 20-minute periods of basketball en route to a narrow 69-66 loss to the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks in a MEAC men’s basketball contest. The Rams, playing their 11th game away from home in 2008-09 had difficulty during a stretch of the first half that saw them fall behind by as many as 22 points during the contest before getting as close as one point in the second half as they fell to 4-9 overall with a loss to UMES Saturday.

Halftime: Delaware State 26, WSSU 17 Technical Fouls: WSSU-2 (Monger, Team), Delaware State-1 (Douse) Officials: Dwayne Gladden, Kenneth Clark, Joseph Palacz Attendance: 706 DOVER, Del. -- Winston-Salem State headed into Monday’s contest having won only two of its 11 games away from home this season. The Hornets, despite sporting a deceiving 2-14 overall record, headed into the contest boasting a 68-17 record at home over the past nine seasons. Something had to give, and that something was the Rams attempt at a victory as Delaware State University turned a nine-point halftime advantage into a 23-point victory at Memorial Hall in Dover, Delaware as WSSU fell to 4-10 in 2008-09.

The game’s first six minutes was a give and take affair as the Hawks and Rams traded baskets with UMES opening up a narrow lead en route to pulling ahead 10-7 with 13:58 to play in the opening period.

Looking to snap a one-game losing skid, the Rams took to the court trying to improve upon their season scoring average of 55.6 points per game while the Hornets attempted to improve upon their 2-2 record at home this season.

However, the Hawks, looking for their second win of the season, and using the momentum provided from a raucous home crowd mounted a 29-10 run over the next 10-plus minutes as Maryland-Eastern Shore upped their lead to a game-high 22 points at 39-17 with 3:40 remaining in the first half of play.

The two teams combined for only 43 points during the game’s first 20 minutes of play as Winston-Salem State and Delaware State tallied 16 total turnovers in the half as the Rams and Hornets missed 31 of their 46 first half field goal attempts.

Undaunted, the battle-tested Rams closed the half on a 7-0 run over the final 2:06 of the period as WinstonSalem State trimmed the Hawks’ lead to only 15 points at 39-24 headed to the locker room at halftime. Leading the Hawks in the first half was Jamie Boyer who tallied 14 points on five-of-seven shooting from the field, including a blistering four-of-five shooting performance from behind the three-point line. Brian Fisher chipped in with seven points for WSSU during the game’s first 20 minutes as he led all WSSU scorers. Building on the run that they mounted to close the first half, the Rams came out of the locker room looking like a completely different team as WSSU outscored UMES 19-9 over the course of the first seven minutes of the second half as the visiting Rams cut the UMES lead to only five points at 48-43 when Paul Davis muscled his way inside for an easy lay-up with just under 13 minutes left in the contest. A Jamar Slocum lay-up with 7:43 remaining in the contest would get the Rams to within one point at 53-52 as WSSU looked poised to take their first lead of the contest.

The Rams hit only five of their 18 first-half shots en route to posting a 27.8 percent shooting performance from the field as WSSU recorded their seventh single-half shooting display of less than 30 percent this season. Playing without their best all-around player Arturo Dubois, who was suspended from the game for a violation of team rules, the Hornets had difficulty in the first half without Dubois’ nearly 10 points and eight rebounds (9.9 ppg and 7.9 rpg) in the lineup as the Hornets hit only 10 of their 28 first-half shots. The Hornets turned things around in the second half as they outscored the Rams 47-33 en route to their third victory of the season as DSU hit 14 of their 20 second-half shots, a 70 percent shooting performance. Conversely, the Rams improved their shooting to a respectable 41.9 percent as WSSU connected on 13 of their 31 shots from the field. Despite the improved shooting, and a team-high 13 points from senior forward Jamal Durham, the Rams were unable to keep pace with the Hornets as WSSU suffered their tenth loss of 2008-09.

However, the Hawks kept their composure and were able to stay one step ahead of the Rams for the remainder of the contest en route to a 69-66 victory.

Durham led the Rams with 13 points as he was one of only two WSSU players to record double-digit point totals. Brian Fisher, who headed into the contest leading the team in scoring, posted 10 points in a losing effort.

Brian Fisher led the way for the Rams in the loss as he tallied a game-high and season-high 24 points as he hit eight of his 17 attempts from the field and successfully converted six of his 11 attempts from the free throw line. Jamal Durham added 10 points for the Rams in losing effort.

With the loss Winston-Salem State falls to 4-10 overall as the Rams have dropped two consecutive games and three of their last five contests. The Hornets improve to 3-14 overall and snap a five-game losing streak with the victory.

Neal Pitt led four UMES players in double-figures as he registered 19 points in the victory. The loss drops the Rams to 4-9 on the season while the Hawks improve to 2-9 overall with the victory.

Halftime: Howard 37, WSSU 34 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Howard-None Officials: Alonzo Holloway, Greg Durrah, Ernie Banks Attendance: 266 WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The losing streak is over for the Bison of Howard University. On Saturday afternoon in the nation’s capital the Rams of Winston-Salem State University were a part of history as they fell in defeat to the Bison 75-63 at Burr Gymnasium ending the second longest losing streak in Howard history at 14 consecutive games. The two teams turned in a well-played first half as the Rams and Bison, despite records that indicate recent struggles, combined to hit 25 of their 55 field goal attempts during the games’ first 20 minutes. Winston-Salem State saw six players record points in the half, led by Isiah Tucker and Diontae Gibson who each recorded seven points in the period. Howard’s Kyle Riley led the Bison with 11 points in a first half that saw one lead change and three tie scores as both the Bison and the Rams aggressively tried to erase their multi-game losing streaks. With a two field goal advantage from behind the three point line, the Bison would close the half with a three-point lead as HU held a slim 37-34 margin headed into the locker room at halftime. The Bison wasted little time in the game’s final 20 minutes as they pushed their lead to as many as 13 points and stayed one step ahead of the Rams’ bid for a comeback. HU answered every WSSU basket with a basket of their own. The Bison, a team that came into the contest hitting just over one quarter of their shots from long range even managed to keep pace with the Rams’ potent trio of three-point shooting threats of Jamal Durham, Brian Fisher and Brandon Hobbs. Staring at a double-digit deficit, the Rams would mount a run reminiscent of their come-from-behind victory from 2007-08, a victory that WSSU snatched from the jaws of defeat by erasing a five-point HU lead in the game’s final 27 seconds of play. On Saturday afternoon however, it would prove more difficult as the Bison, a team starving for a victory and a team that had not won a contest since the season-opener in November, was able to hold on for a gritty 12-point 75-63 victory. With the victory the Bison improve to 2-14 overall and snap a 14-game losing streak. The Rams fall to 4-11 overall as WSSU has now lost three consecutive games. Brian Fisher and Paul Davis led the Rams with 15 points each in the loss as they led three WSSU players in double-figures. Diontae Gibson joined Fisher and Davis in double digits 11 points. Davis also added 13 rebounds in the contest as he became the first WSSU player to record 10 or more rebounds in a game this season. The Rams return to action on Sunday, Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. as they face the Pirates of Hampton University at the Richmond, Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia in the first game of the 2009 Freedom Classic Festival.

Halftime: Hampton 32, WSSU 17 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Hampton-None Officials: Quez Crawford, Bernard Clinton, Jr., Haywood Bostic Attendance: 4,356 RICHMOND,Va. -- Hampton handed Winston-Salem State their fourth consecutive loss on Sunday afternoon at the Richmond Coliseum in the first game of the 2009 Freedom Classic Festival as the Pirates downed the Rams 59-43 to win their third straight game over their long-time HBCU rival, relegating WSSU to 4-12 on the season in the process. The 36th meeting between the two proud Historically Black Universities started with a roar as Hampton jumped out to an early lead, an advantage that they would never surrender en route to their second straight victory. Woeful first-half shooting by the Rams helped the Pirates push their lead to as many as 18 points during the game’s first 20 minutes. WSSU would hit only six of their 25 first-half field goals (24 percent) as the Pirates pulled away early. HU’s Michael Freeman sparked the early offensive performance for the Pirates as he recorded eight points and five rebounds in only 11 minutes of play during the first half en route to hitting four of his six field goal attempts. Not to be outdone, WSSU’s Paul Davis, fresh off of career highs in minutes, points, rebounds and assists in Saturday’s contest at Howard, out-gunned Freeman during the game’s first half as he tallied nine points and seven rebounds during his 11 minutes of play in the period. Davis’ production would prove to be one of the lone bright spots for the Rams during the first half as the Pirates hit 14 of their 30 field goal attempts and carried a comfortable 15-point advantage, at 32-17, into the halftime intermission. Unlike teams of lesser character, the Rams responded in the game’s final 20 minutes of play as WSSU cut the Hampton lead to 10 points on four occasions in a valiant comeback attempt. Despite struggling with the aggressive Rams’ bid for another come-from-behind victory, the Pirates, a team renowned as a perennial MEAC power, refused to allow WSSU any closer than nine points for the remainder of the contest en route to the win, a win that kept the Rams winless at 0-3 this season in neutral-site games. “We were pleased with our effort and heart in the second half, but we need that for a full 40 minutes” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins commented postgame. “We can’t play in spurts in this league versus this competition. We need to play a full game, and we just didn’t do that tonight.” Leading the way for the Rams was Paul Davis who recorded his second consecutive double-double with 12 points and 12 assists and a career-high six blocked shots. Joining Davis in double-figures were Brian Fisher and Jamal Durham who each recorded 11 points in the losing effort. With the victory the Pirates improve to 9-8 overall and push their win streak over the Rams to three games. The Rams fall to 4-12 overall as WSSU has now lost four consecutive games. WSSU trails in the all-time series with Hampton 22-14.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Jamal Durham’s 21 points were not enough for the Rams of Winston-Salem State University on Saturday evening at the Joel Coliseum as the Aggies of North Carolina A&T benefited from having five players recording double-digit scoring performances as the Rams fell in defeat 73-60 to drop their fifth consecutive game and drop to 4-13 overall in the process.

Halftime: Norfolk State 30, WSSU 20 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Norfolk State-None Officials: William Cheek, Donnie Eppley, Antoine Dawkins Attendance: 1,432

The Aggies and Rams, a pair of rivals that are separated by less than 30 miles of Interstate 40, traded leads during the first 20 minutes of play as Jamal Durham recorded his third single-half double-digit scoring performance of the year as he tallied 12 points in the game’s first 20 minutes of play including a game-opening thunderous alley-oop dunk that gave the Rams an early lead.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Rams continue to have difficulty shooting the basketball and on Monday evening at the Joel Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, N.C. it cost them a chance to snap their five-game losing skid and more importantly cost them an opportunity for their fifth win of the season as they shot 35.7 percent from the field en route to dropping a 69-51 decision to the Norfolk State Spartans.

Durham’s 12 first half points would not outshine the Aggies as seven North Carolina A&T players would score during the first period of play as N.C. A&T retook the lead, a lead that they would never relinquish.

The Rams, a team that has shot below 40 percent from the field in 11 games this season dropped their tenth game of the year when doing so as they hit only 28.6 percent of their field goal attempts in the first 20 minutes of play and shot only percentage points better in the final period of play as they shot 42.9 percent from the field for a cumulative total of 35.7 percent for the game.

North Carolina A&T used a 51.6 percent shooting performance to take a five-point advantage to the locker room for the halftime intermission as the Aggies led the Rams 39-34 after 20 minutes of play. Second-half action would see the Aggies increase their lead to a game-high 15 points less than five minutes into the contest’s final period of play as the Aggies’ Robert Johnson dunked home his 10th point of the game with 16:21 remaining in the contest giving the Aggies a comfortable 49-34 lead. Despite trailing by 15 points the young Rams were undaunted as a raucous crowd of over 8,000 fans gave Winston-Salem State the momentum to eventually cut the Aggies’ lead back to only seven points with 3:19 to play when Diontae Gibson’s layup trimmed the N.C. A&T advantage to 67-60. Gibson’s layup would be where the Rams’ run ended however as Winston-Salem State was held without a point in the games’ final three minutes as the Aggies closed the contest on a 6-0 run en route to the 13-point, 73-60 victory.

Conversely, the Spartans hit 43 percent of their first half field goals and then blistered the nets for nearly 54 percent shooting in the final 20 minutes of the game in a half in which they pushed their lead to a game-high 20 points with 1:05 to play. WSSU would never lead in the contest, yet cut the lead to as little a margin as three points, at 48-45, with 7:38 remaining in the contest before the Spartans would string together six consecutive scoring possessions. Jamal Durham led the Rams in scoring for the 11th time this season with 16 points, 10 of which came in the first half of play as he moved into 18th place on WSSU’s all-time scoring chart with 1,104 career points. Brian Fisher would be the only other WSSU player to record a double-digit point total as he recorded 12 points and four rebounds in the losing effort.

The loss drops the Rams to 4-13 on the season while the Aggies improve to 8-11 (2-3 MEAC) with the victory. WSSU head coach Bobby Collins drops his all-time coaching record against the Aggies to 8-3 overall and falls to 86-112 in his seven years as a head coach (21-55 at WSSU).

Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference scoring leader Michael Deloach recorded only 14 points, seven points below his league-leading 21 points per game average, yet the Spartans benefitted from four players in double figures, led by Corey Lyons and his game-high 23 points.

Jamal Durham’s 21 points led the Rams as he was one of two WSSU players to record double-digit point totals in the contest. Diontae Gibson turned in his best game as a Ram as he chipped in with 15 points in the loss.

Brandon Monroe stymied the Rams as he chipped in with 10 points and a game-high 17 rebounds in 33 minutes of work for the Spartans.

Tavarus Alston’s 15 points led the Aggies who had five players in double-figures. Joining Alston in doubledigits were Robert Johnson (12 points), Thomas Coleman (10 points), Nicholas Wilson (11 points) and Ed Jones (11 points).

Winston-Salem State falls to 4-14 overall with the loss and has lost six consecutive games. Norfolk State improves to 7-11 overall with the win and has won back-to-back contests for the third time this season.

WSSU returns to action on Monday, Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. as they play host to the Spartans of Norfolk State University at the Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Halftime: WSSU 42, Florida A&M 29 Technical Fouls: WSSU-Paul Davis, Florida A&M-Joe Ballard Officials: Toney Means, Kenny Pate, Mike Drummond Attendance: 2,578 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team won their first game of the New Year on Jan. 5 and closed out a tumultuous January with a victory in the final day of the month as the Rams book-ended a six-game losing streak with a 80-66 victory over the Rattlers of Florida A&M University on Saturday evening at the Gaither Gymnasium in Tallahassee, Florida. The Rams, searching for their first victory in 26 days, took to the road for an 11-hour journey to Tallahassee looking for their third road win of the season and fifth win of the season overall. A hot first half, a period in which the Rams would outscore the host Rattlers 42-29 gave WSSU exactly what they were searching for as Winston-Salem State improved to 5-14 overall and 3-10 on the road. The two teams, meeting for only the fourth time in history in what has developed into a heated rivalry, combined for 71 total points in the game’s first 20 minutes as the Rams recorded their second-highest single-half scoring performance of the season as WSSU put up 42 points in the period.

Halftime: Bethune-Cookman 26, WSSU 23 Technical Fouls: WSSU-None, Bethune-Cookman-None Officials: Cheek, McEachern, Broski Attendance: 1,972 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- For the second consecutive season it would take overtime to decide the matchup between the Winston-Salem State University Rams and the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman, and for the second straight season it would be the Rams who would emerge victorious as WSSU earned a 62-61 overtime victory in Daytona Beach, Fla. on Monday evening. Jamal Durham’s game-high 16 points, including five points in the overtime period powered the Rams to their second consecutive victory as WSSU earned a two-game sweep in their four-day Sunshine State road trip. The contest would prove to be a hotly contested affair throughout as the two teams traded leads five times and would see the score deadlocked on six occasions as 40 minutes of play would not be enough to decide the outcome of the matchup.

WSSU shot a season-high 60.7 percent from the field in the first half as the Rams connected on 17 of 28 field goal attempts to jump on top of the Rattlers early.

The game’s first 20 minutes of play would see five lead changes and three ties as Bethune-Cookman completed the first period holding a three-point lead at 26-23.

Spurred on by an aggressive defense that stymied the Rattlers, WSSU held Florida A&M to only 29 points during the first 20 minutes of play as WSSU enjoyed a 13-point halftime advantage, an advantage that the Rams would never surrender.

The Rams, a team that came into the contest 1-12 when trailing a halftime defied the numbers and outscored the Wildcats by three points in the second period of play to force an overtime session between the two programs for the second consecutive year.

Second half action saw the Rams’ shooting percentage drop off only marginally as WSSU hit nearly 50 percent (48.3) of their second-half field goals as Winston-Salem State did not allow the Rattlers to pull even in the final 20 minutes of play.

Seeking to keep the home team winless in the three-year history of the series, WSSU senior forward Jamal Durham scored five of his game-high 16 points in the overtime session to propel the Rams to a win.

The Rams would start the half on a 6-0 run to increase their lead to a game-high 19 points as WSSU pulled out to their second-largest lead of the 2008-09 season, a lead from which the Rattlers would never fully recover. Trailing by 19 points, the Rattlers would get as close as two points before watching the Rams close the game on a 12-2 victory that sealed the victory. Brian Fisher led the Rams with 16 points as he paced three WSSU players in double figures. Jamal Durham chipped in with 15 points and streaky point guard Isiah Tucker tallied 12 points in the victory. The win improves the Rams to 5-14 overall while the Rattlers fall to 6-13 (4-3 MEAC) with the loss. WSSU’s victory marks the first time in series history that the road team has won a game in the series. WSSU head coach Bobby Collins improves his overall record versus Florida A&M to 7-6 as the Rams tie the all-time series at 2-2 with the victory. The Rams return to action on Monday Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m. as they face the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Durham would hit a three-point field goal and convert a pair of free throws in overtime as he led the Rams in scoring for the 11th time in the Rams’ 20 games this season as WSSU won their second game in the span of four days. WSSU benefitted from a 60 percent shooting display in the overtime period as five players recorded points in the extra frame as WSSU remained perfect on the road versus Bethune-Cookman, allowing WSSU head coach Bobby Collins to improve his record versus the Wildcats to 9-3 all-time. Jamal Durham led four WSSU players in double figures with 16 points. Joining Durham in double-digits was Brian Fisher who contributed 15 points, Isiah Tucker who tallied 13 points in the win and Paul Davis who chipped in with 11 points in the victory. The Rams improve to 6-14 overall with the victory as WSSU has now won their last two contests while the Wildcats fall to 11-11 with the loss as Bethune-Cookman has now lost two consecutive games. WSSU returns to action on Saturday, Feb. 7 at 6:05 p.m. as they face the Bears of Morgan State University at the LJVM Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C. in a MEAC league contest that will be televised live on ESPNU.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference-leading Morgan State University pulled away midway through the second half on Saturday evening at Joel Coliseum as the Bears busted open a tight game en route to handing the Rams of Winston-Salem State University a 73-64 loss in a nationally-televised contest that was shown live on ESPNU.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Coppin State University escaped the Joel Coliseum Annex with a 68-58 victory over the Winston-Salem State University Rams on Monday evening in a contest that, despite the final margin, was tight throughout as WSSU nearly knocked off the defending conference champion Eagles.

The Rams turned in a stellar first half of play as they held the MEAC leaders to 32 points during the game’s first 20 minutes behind a stellar defensive effort that held the Bears to 46.4 percent shooting from the field as WSSU forced six Morgan State turnovers. WSSU mounted a deadly shooting performance of their own in the half as Brian Fisher and Jamal Durham combined to hit seven of their 16 field goals including a pair of three pointers as the upperclassmen led the Rams’ 41.7 percent shooting display with 13 and 11 points respectively. The Bears held a slim advantage through nearly the entire first half of play until a Jamal Durham three-pointer with 35 seconds remaining in the period gave WSSU their first lead of the game at 33-32. The one-point advantage would hold up as the Rams took the slimmest of leads to the locker room for the halftime intermission as WSSU led at the half for only the sixth time this season. Leading by one point, the Rams increased their advantage to a game-high four points with a Jamal Durham layup off of an Isiah Tucker steal with 16:31 remaining to play in the contest as WSSU looked to be in control of the tempo of the contest. The Bears, one of the MEAC’s best shooting teams proved why they are atop the standings in the conference as the Bears would mount a 12-1 run over the next six minutes of play as Morgan State took control with a lead that they would never relinquish. The Bears’ Reggie Holmes, who was an uncharacteristic one-for-nine in the first half of play, proved to be the catalyst of the Morgan State run which saw MSU mount an offensive spurt in which six of their first nine second-half field goals were from three point range as WSSU saw the Bears pull away for good. The Rams were led by Brian Fisher who recorded a season-high 25 points in the loss as he hit eight of his 17 field goals and hit eight of 10 free throws. Fisher was joined in double-figures by Jamal Durham who tallied 16 points in the loss. With 16 points on the evening senior forward Jamal Durham now has 1,151 points for his career at WSSU as he has appeared in 106 games for the Rams and has turned in a career scoring average of 10.8 points per game. He now ranks 17th all-time in scoring at WSSU as he moves past Kevin “Cadillac” Vaughn (1,138 career points) on the alltime scoring charts. The loss drops the Rams to 6-15 on the season as WSSU’s win streak is halted at two games.The Bears improve to 13-10 on the season with the victory as MSU increases their win streak to three games.

The Rams, trying to earn their first win over the Eagles in the third-ever meeting between the two teams, shut off three-time All-MEAC selection and 2008 MEAC Pre-Season Player of the Year honoree Tywain McKee during the game’s first 20 minutes of play as they held the speedy guard to only three points, one rebound and two assists in the first half as WSSU forced McKee into a trio of uncharacteristic turnovers in the period. With McKee struggling on offense, the Rams used a deliberate half court attack en route to scoring 10 points in the paint and nine points off of turnovers as Winston-Salem State, despite shooting only 27.6 percent in the period on eight-of-29 shooting, closed the half deadlocked at 25-25 with the defending MEAC Champion Eagles. Tied at 25, the Rams opened the half with an Isiah Tucker layup as WSSU earned their third lead of the contest before Tywain McKee would take over and seemingly will Coppin State to the victory. The senior guard scored 10 of his 13 total points in the second half in addition to dishing out six assists and collecting three steals. With the Rams trailing by only three points at 43-40, McKee would hit a layup, record two steals and dish out two assists as he nearly single-handedly lead the Eagles on an 9-0 run as Coppin State increased their lead to an insurmountable 12 points. “He [Tywain McKee] did a fantastic job coming out in the second half and running the team” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said in postgame interviews. “We didn’t take advantage of him being out in the first half. We didn’t capitalize. He is the point guard that every team would love to have and that is the ultimate compliment” Collins added. Looking to use the long range shot to erase the 12-point deficit,WSSU came up cold from behind the three point line as WSSU hit only six of their 27 attempts from deep as they never recovered from CSU’s mid-half run. Brian Fisher led the Rams with 17 points in the loss as he hit five of his 15 shots from the field including posting a five-of-11 shooting performance from three-point range. Joining Fisher in double-figures, Jamal Durham recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort. The loss drops the Rams to 6-16 on the season while Coppin State improves to 8-16 (5-5 MEAC) overall on the season with the victory.

Halftime: Winston-Salem State 20, Hampton 25 Technical Fouls: WSSU-1 (Isiah Tucker), Hampton-2 (Michael Freeman) Officials: Covington, Covington, Jr., Moore Attendance: 843

Junior guard Brian Fisher wasted no time in helping the Rams dispatch the Bison as he hit a layup and back-toback three-point field goals as he scored eight of WSSU’s points during a 10-1 run over the first three minutes of the contest that put WSSU firmly in control.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The Winston-Salem State University men’s basketball team missed 15 of their first 16 shots in the second half of play enabling the Pirates of Hampton University to turn a five-point halftime advantage into an insurmountable 26-point lead en route to a 67-49 victory over the Rams on Monday evening at the Joel Coliseum Annex.

Building on the pace set by Fisher, and a first-half offensive performance that saw WSSU hit 13 of their 26 field goal attempts in the period, WSSU closed the game’s first 20 minutes with a 31-25 advantage headed into the locker room at halftime.

With Hampton up 25-20 following the halftime intermission, the Rams would get only one field goal and a pair of free throws during the contest’s next 11-plus minutes as Winston-Salem State missed 15 of 16 field goals and would go more than eight-and-a-half minutes without a bucket.

Second half action belonged squarely to the Rams as seldom-used freshman guard Jamarcus McClinton took over the game’s final 20 minutes of play as he scored 12 of his 14 points in the game’s final period en route to helping propel WSSU to the victory.

During a 24-4 Pirate run that encompassed the first 10 minutes of the game’s final period, the Rams would get a Brian Fisher layup 2:46 into the half and would record a pair of free throws midway through the period before a Jamarcus McClinton layup with 8:50 remaining broke the scoring drought.

McClinton, a 6-3 freshman from Chester, S.C. who had only appeared in 13 of the Rams’ 22 games headed into the contest, and a player who had not recorded any offensive statistics in nine of the Rams’ last 10 games, exploded for a career-high 14 points in a career-high 27 minutes of action as he and his WSSU teammates improved to 5-2 in games when holding the halftime lead.

Despite breaking the scoring drought the damage would already be done as Hampton, a perennial Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference power, would never allow the Rams to get closer than 14 points the rest of the way as they earned the season sweep of WSSU and ran HU’s win streak over the Rams to four games including 12 of the last 13 meetings between the two programs with WSSU’s last victory over HU coming in 1995.

Joining McClinton in double figures, Brian Fisher added a team-high 15 points and Jamal Durham chipped in with 12 points and six rebounds in the victory.

Brian Fisher’s 14 points led WSSU in the loss as the Rams drop to 7-17 on the season while Hampton improves to 12-13 overall on the year with the victory (5-6 MEAC).

Eugene Myatt and Adam Walker led the Bison with 15 points each in a losing effort. Both Myatt and Walker tallied four rebounds in the loss as well.

WSSU returns to action on Feb. 21 at 4:00 p.m. as they travel to Greensboro, N.C. to face Interstate 40 rival North Carolina A&T State University on Saturday afternoon at the Corbett Sports Center.

With the victory,WSSU improves to 7-16 overall on the season. The loss drops Howard to 7-17 on the season (5-5 MEAC) and snaps HU’s four-game win streak. The WSSU men’s basketball team returns to action on Monday, Feb. 16, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. when they play host to the Pirates of Hampton University at the Joel Coliseum Annex.

The first half of play started innocently enough as the Aggies and the Rams both found it difficult to put the ball in the basket as the two teams combined to miss 17 of their first 22 shots from the field.

Halftime: Winston-Salem State 32, Norfolk State 19 Technical Fouls: WSSU-3 (Fisher, Hobbs, Davis), Norfolk State-2 (Pauline, Lyons) Officials: Terry Moore, Carl Blair, Joe Mazella Attendance: 1,163 NORFOLK, Va. -- Michael Deloach, the MEAC’s leading scorer and a senior who has scored nearly 1,000 points in only three seasons at Norfolk State was a non-factor in the first half on Monday evening at Echols Hall as the Rams of Winston-Salem State University used a defensive scheme that never allowed him to get into a comfort zone en route to snapping a two-game losing streak as they handed the Spartans a 68-64 loss in front of their home crowd.

The Rams would start three for their first 11 from the field, including an 0-3 shooting display from leading scorer Brian Fisher, during the game’s first five minutes of play.

Winston-Salem State used a trapping, aggressive defensive style during the first 20 minutes of play that forced the ball away from DeLoach, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s leading scorer who entered the contest scoring over 20 points per game.

Not to be outdone, the Aggies would miss nine of their first 11 shots from the field headed into the first media timeout with 13:50 to play in the opening period.

While the Rams’ pressure defense made things difficult for DeLoach and his Norfolk State teammates,WinstonSalem State had very little difficulty during the contest’s first 20 minutes.

Despite the shooting woes the Rams found a way, through aggressive defense and an offensive spark provided by junior guard Brian Fisher and freshman Jamarcus McClinton, to lead by five points at halftime 31-26.

The Rams held DeLoach to only seven first-half points as the senior guard hit only two of his 11 field goal attempts despite playing all 20 minutes in the half. Not only would DeLoach have difficulty with the WSSU defense but the rest of the Spartans managed to hit only five of their 19 shots from the field as the Rams held NSU to a season-low 23.3 percent shooting performance in the half.

The Rams, leading by five points, fell victim to a hostile environment of 5,700 fans, a standing-room-only crowd at the Corbett sports Center, that amplified every play on the court as key turnovers proved costly for WSSU as North Carolina A&T mounted their game-changing run. Leading by two points, at 47-45, with 8:02 to play in the contest, the Aggies capitalized on a trio of WSSU turnovers and three misses from three-point range as N.C. A&T burst out for a 13-1 run over a span of three minutes that put the game out of reach. A late WSSU rally cut the lead to only seven points, the game’s final margin, but the damage was done as the Rams were handed their 18th loss of the season. Leading the way for the Rams in the loss was Brian Fisher who tied a season-high with 25 points. Fisher was joined in double-figres by Jamarcus McClinton who tallied 14 points. The loss drops the Rams to 7-18 on the season and pushes WSSU’s losing streak to two games. The victory moves North Carolina A&T to 14-13 on the season (7-5 MEAC).

Conversely, the Rams scorched the nets at a 51.9 percent pace as eight WSSU players recorded points in the half as Winston-Salem State successfully converted 14 of their 27 shots from the field. The Rams started the contest on a 6-0 run as they hit their first three shots from the field and Winston-Salem State eventually opened up a 19-point advantage with 7:31 remaining in the first half as WSSU took a 32-19 lead into halftime. Leading by 13 points, the Rams looked to be in complete control before Norfolk State, behind the play of DeLoach cut the Rams’ advantage to as little as three points, on three separate occasions, in the second half. Despite a charge by DeLoach and the Spartans, a charge in which DeLoach would record his 1,000th career point at Norfolk State, the Rams would never surrender their lead. DeLoach finished the contest with a game-high 25 points in the loss as he led two NSU players in doublefigures. WSSU was led by Jamal Durham who recorded a team-high 16 points in the victory. Joining Durham in double figures, junior guard Brian Fisher chipped in with 10 points.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Five minutes of play without a field goal proved to be the Rams’ undoing on Saturday evening as the Florida A&M University Rattlers mounted a 14-2 run midway through the second half of play and turned a two-point WSSU advantage into a 12-point advantage of their own as FAMU earned a hard-fought 71-69 victory at Joel Coliseum.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Nearly nine minutes without a field goal midway through the second half of play spelled doom for the Rams of Winston-Salem State University on Monday evening at the Joel Coliseum as Bethune-Cookman mounted a 13-0 run to blow open a close game en route to handing the Rams a 64-49 loss in a MEAC men’s basketball contest that was shown live on ESPNU.

After leading by four points at 32-28 at halftime following a first half in which they would hit 46 percent of their shots from the field, the Rams would see the game slip away over a span of five minutes of play without a field goal.

A seven-point contest at halftime, with Bethune-Cookman leading 29-22, saw the Rams cut the deficit to only two points at 31-29 with 17:07 to play as Winston-Salem State mounted a 14-2 run over the final two minutes of the first half and the first three minutes of the second period as the host-team looked to be posing a challenge to the Wildcats.

Leading 51-49 with 12:44 to play in the contest, the Rams would helplessly watch as Florida A&M mounted a 14-2 run during which WSSU’s only points would come from the free throw line as the visiting Rattlers opened up a 12-point advantage of their own en route to leading 63-51 with just over seven minutes remaining in the contest.

The challenge was short-lived however as Bethune-Cookman mounted a 13-0 run of their own, due in large part to the Rams’ failure to record a field goal over a span of eight minutes and 40 seconds of play as the Wildcats blew open a close game en route to evening their record at 15-15 overall (8-7 MEAC).

The Rams would trim the lead to as little as one point following a clutch Jamal Durham three-point field goal with 34.6 seconds remaining in the contest, but WSSU would get no closer for the remainder of the contest as free throws and a Lamar Twitty block of Brian Fisher’s attempt to tie the game would push the eventual margin of victory to two points as Florida A&M earned the season-series split with the Rams. Jamarcus McClinton led the Rams with 12 points in the loss as he led a trio of players in double-figure scoring. Paul Davis and Brandon Hobbs each chipped in with 11 points and Brian Fisher and Jamal Durham each added 10 points in a losing effort as the Rams recorded five players in double figures for the first time since March 3, 2008.

For the 13th time in the 2008-09 season the Rams would shoot less than 40 percent from the field as the Rams hit only 36.5 percent of their field goals, hitting 19 of 52 attempts.

Brandon Bryant and Lamar Twitty each recorded 20 points for the Rattlers in the victory as three Florida A&M players recorded double-digit scoring totals in the contest.

C.J. Reed led the Wildcats with 21 points as the son of B-CU head coach Clifford Reed, Jr. paced three BethuneCookman players in double figures in the victory.

The loss drops the Rams to 8-19 overall while the Rattlers improve to 9-18 (6-8 MEAC) on the season with the victory.

The win improves Bethune-Cookman to 15-15 on the season and drops the Rams to 8-20 on the season overall with the loss.

Winston-Salem State University returns to action on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 7:02 p.m. as they play host to the Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman University at the Joel Coliseum in a contest that will be broadcast live on ESPNU.

Conversely, the Wildcats benefitted from a 55.6 percent shooting performance as Bethune-Cookman hit 25 of 45 field goal attempts as WSSU dropped to 0-10 on the season when allowing an opponent to shoot 50 percent or better from the field. Brian Fisher’s team-leading 21 points on seven-of-14 shooting would not be enough for the Rams on Monday evening as Fisher was the only WSSU player to score more than 10 points in the contest.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Senior night at the C.E. Gaines Center on the campus of Winston-Salem State University was bittersweet for senior forward Jamal Durham. Playing in the last home game of his college career, Durham recorded a team-high 16 points and led four WSSU players in doubles-figures, but it was not enough as visiting South Carolina State downed the Rams 86-73.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Winston-Salem State University senior forward Jamal Durham walked off of the court for the final time in his college career on Saturday evening at the Joel Coliseum with his head held high despite suffering a 63-56 loss to the Eagles of North Carolina Central University in the “Bonus Game” of the 2009 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament.

The Rams and Bulldogs put together an offensive showcase in the first 20 minutes of play as both teams scorched the nets by shooting 55.9 percent from the field as both teams hit 19 of their 34 field goal attempts and combined to score 88 first-half points. A period of play that saw the game tied eight times and saw the lead change hands on nine occasions, WSSU and South Carolina State jockeyed for control of a game that would remain close until the final five minutes of the contest.

“I have no complaints, no complaints at all” Durham commented in post-game interviews. “Sure, I would have liked to have played my last game and gotten a win, but I would take the guys on this team over anyone. They work hard every day and I would take this team over anyone, despite the difficulties” the 6’6” native of Winston-Salem added. Despite Durham’s upbeat manner, the outcome for the Rams was one that was somber at best following the loss to the Eagles as WSSU closed their second consecutive season with a loss to their Interstate 40 rival in the “Bonus Game” of the MEAC Championship.

Trailing by five at 75-70 with 4:07 remaining in the contest, the Rams allowed the Bulldogs to close the contest on an 11-3 run as South Carolina State turned a five-point contest into a 13-point regular-season closing victory.

Controlling play for most of the contest, the Rams would again hit the proverbial wall midway through the second half as Winston-Salem State could not overcome a nearly four-minute scoreless streak as the Eagles snatched victory away from WSSU and kept the Rams winless at 0-7 in the Joel Coliseum in 2008-09.

Durham led the Rams with 16 points in the contest as he was one of four WSSU players to record double-digit point totals in the game. Joining Durham in double-figures, Jamarcus McClinton recorded 14 points, Brian Fisher tallied 11 points and Isiah Tucker added 10 in a losing effort.

“This game is a carbon copy of all the games we have lost this season” WSSU head coach Bobby Collins said.

Jason Johnson led the Bulldogs with 22 points as he led four South Carolina State players in double digits. Joining Johnson in double-figures was Jason Flagler with 18 points, Jimmy Williams with 16 points and Josh Jackson who recorded 12 points in the victory. The loss drops the Rams to 8-21 on the season overall while South Carolina State University improves to 16-13 overall (10-6 MEAC) with the victory.

“If you look back at all the games we have lost this season, especially the ones here in this building, you will see this follows the same pattern. We come out and play with intensity and then, for whatever reason, we hit the wall and it costs us the game. That is exactly what happened tonight” Collins added. WSSU would control the tempo for the majority of the contest as they jumped out to a 31-26 halftime lead behind a 48 percent first-half shooting performance. Adding to the Eagles’ woes, the Rams’ aggressive defense held NCCU to only 28.6 percent shooting during the game’s first 20 minutes as WSSU enjoyed a five-point lead at the intermission. Second half action however, would belong nearly entirely to the Eagles. North Carolina Central outscored the Rams 37-25 in the final period as they came from behind to hand WSSU their 22nd loss of the season. Playing in his final game as a Ram, Durham tallied 14 points and pulled down seven rebounds as he closed out his WSSU career 13th on WSSU’s all-time scoring chart with 1,240 points. He also closes out his career sitting atop the WSSU all-time games played chart with 117 games played, one ahead of former WSSU teammate Alleggrie Guinn. Sophomore forward Paul Davis also chipped in with a team-leading 14 points in the loss and added five rebounds and four blocks. Leading the way for the Eagles was Bryan Ayala who recorded a game-high 19 points in the contest.

Biography Of A Legend C.E. “Big House” Gaines WSSU Hall of Fame Head Basketball Coach 48 Seasons (1946-1993) Sixth 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. 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. Sports Hall of Fame, 1978; CIAA Basketball Coach of the Year, 1957, 61, 63, 70, 75, 80; NAIA District 26 Outstanding Coach Award, 1975-78; Paul Robeson Award, 1980; Winston-Salem Urban League Family of the Year Award, 1973; Order of the Long Leaf Pine (N.C.); and the Silver Buffalo Award (Boy Scouts of America) etc.

During Coach Gaines¹ 47-year tenure as coach and athletic director at WinstonSalem 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 WinstonSalem 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 Winston-Salem 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 State University National Youth Sports Program and the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Board of Trustees and President of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, 1989. 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 828-446, 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. Mary¹s University (formerly Mt. St. Mary¹s College the name change took place on June 8th, 2004), placing him fourth all-time in wins in NCAA Basketball history before Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski passed both Phelan and Gaines in 2005, moving “Big House” to sixth-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.

“One Man Team” Earl Monroe Leads Winston-Salem State To Title Rams’ 1967 National Championship 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. The fitting climax came in the championship game as the Rams disposed of Southwest Missouri, 7774. Monroe contributed 40 points to the title victory. 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. 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. This stemmed from the coaching philosophy of Clarence “Big House” Gaines: “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. “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.” 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. Bolden and Shepherd were also big offensive guns with 27 and 20 points, respectively. If Southwest Missouri Coach Bill Thomas had to do it over again, he wouldn’t change a thing. “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.

Earl “The Pearl” Monroe Full Name: Vernon Earl Monroe Born:12/21/44 in Philadelphia High School: John Bartram (Phila.) College: Winston-Salem (N.C.) Drafted by: Baltimore Bullets, 1967 (second pick overall) Transactions: Traded to New York Knicks, 10/10/71 Nickname: The Pearl Height: 6-3; Weight: 190 lbs. Honors: Elected to Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (1990); NBA champion (1973); All-NBA First Team (1969); NBA Rookie of the Year (1968); NBA All-Rookie Team (1968); Four-time NBA All-Star (1969, ‘71, ‘75, ‘77); One of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History (1996). Before the arrival of “Magic” Johnson there was another “Magic” -- “Black Magic,” also known as “Earl the Pearl.” He was Earl Monroe, a dazzling ballhandler and one-on-one virtuoso who made crowds gasp with his slashing drives to the hoop. Monroe joined the NBA in 1967 and parlayed his talents into a distinguished 13-year career. He was part of a changing of the guard in the NBA, arriving at a time when high scorers like Dave Bing and Jerry West were showing that the backcourt could rack up points just as effectively as the center position. He finished with a career average of 18.8 ppg. Spectators were amazed not only by the number of points that Monroe scored but also by how he scored them. “The ultimate playground player,” is how Bill Bradley once described him to the New York Post. He loved to spin and twist through the paint and then launch off-balance, circus-like shots in the tradition of the Harlem Globetrotters. His shots went in often enough for Monroe to compile a respectable .464 career field-goal percentage and earn four All-Star Game appearances. More importantly, he was a key leader on two excellent teams of the late 1960s and early 1970s-the Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks. Monroe grew up in a tough South Philadelphia neighborhood. As a youth he was more interested in soccer and baseball than in basketball, but by age 14 he had grown to 6-3 and had drawn the attention of school basketball coaches. Although he wasn’t immediately adept at basketball, Monroe played center during most of his youth. His “shake-and-bake” moves originated in the tough contests played on Philly’s asphalt playgrounds. “I had to develop flukeyduke shots, what we call la-la, hesitating in the air as long as possible before shooting,” he once explained.

Monroe decided to attend Winston-Salem State, a small, historically black college in North Carolina. There he found a father figure in Coach Clarence “Big House” Gaines, a famed figure in black college sports and blossomed into a first-rate scorer. As a senior in 1966-67, Monroe led his Winston-Salem State University Rams squad to an NCAA Division II title while averaging 41.5 points. A local sportswriter, the Winston-Salem Journal’s Jerry McLeese penned the phrase “Earl’s Pearls” to describe the points he tallied, and a nickname was born. Monroe, the No. 2 choice in the 1967 NBA Draft, was chosen by the Baltimore Bullets, a franchise that had not enjoyed much success. During his initial season

MEDIA GUIDE

the team showed little improvement, finishing in the Eastern Division cellar. Monroe, however, was a standout. He was named NBA Rookie of the Year after averaging 24.3 points to finish fourth in the league in scoring. In one game against the Los Angeles Lakers he tossed in 56 points. The Bullets’ fortunes improved after they surrounded Monroe with a strong roster that included All-Star Wes Unseld, bruising forward Gus Johnson, talented Jack Marin, and guards Kevin Loughery and Fred “Mad Dog” Carter. Monroe was at the head of the pack, leading a run-and-gun attack that was fueled by Unseld’s quick outlet passes. During the next three seasons Monroe averaged 25.8, 23.4 and 21.4 points, respectively, leading the Bullets into the playoffs each year. Lacking great speed and leaping ability, Monroe compensated with a feathery jump shot and a patented spin move that he initiated by bumping up against an opponent and making contact before spinning away to launch one of his unorthodox shots. Most of all, Monroe made his mark with his uncanny moves to the hoop. Employing a hesitation dribble or perhaps a double-pump or triplepump fake, he would slip past mystified opponents and drop in layups. Observers said that watching him play was like listening to jazz; his moves resembled free-floating improvisations, riffs that took off in midflight and changed direction unpredictably. “The thing is, I don’t know what I’m going to do with the ball,” Monroe once admitted, “and if I don’t know, I’m quite sure the guy guarding me doesn’t know either.” Fans and pros alike loved Monroe for his array of entertaining shots and his special flair. “Put a basketball in his hands and he does wondrous things with it,” said Bullets Coach Gene Shue. “He has the greatest combination of basketball ability and showmanship.” In a New York Post interview, Baltimore teammate Ray Scott was less circumspect: “God couldn’t go one-on-one with Earl.” In 1968-69, Monroe averaged 25.8 ppg to help the Bullets jump from last to first in their division. He also appeared in the All-Star Game for the first time, scoring 21 points and dazzling viewers with his moves. The season ended abruptly, however, when the Bullets faced the Knicks in the playoffs and were buried in four straight games. At season’s end, Monroe was rewarded with a berth on the All-NBA First Team, the only such honor of his career. The Bullets and the Knicks hooked up again in the 1970 playoffs, tangling in a wild seven-game division semifinal. The Knicks

prevailed a second time as Monroe starred in a losing effort. He fired in 39 points in a 120-117 double-overtime loss to the Knicks in Game 1. The following year the Bullets got their revenge by overcoming the Knicks in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals, taking the final game in the hostile environs of Madison Square Garden. Monroe had to wait for his first championship ring, however. The Milwaukee Bucks, led by MVP Lew Alcindor (later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) and Oscar Robertson, vanquished the Bullets in four straight games in the NBA Finals, only the second time a team had been swept in the championship series. Monroe averaged 21.4 points for the season and made his second trip to the NBA All-Star Game. Monroe continued to be a key figure in the series of Bullets-Knicks playoffs that followed -- a bitterly contested, long-running saga in which the two clubs faced each other in six consecutive years from 1969 to 1974. The series offered exciting games and dream matchups, the best of all being the duel between Monroe and the cool, stylish Walt “Clyde” Frazier. Both stars had entered the NBA the same year (Frazier was drafted by the Knicks three notches below Monroe) and each was called upon to guard the other during games. Defensive wizard Frazier often battled Monroe to a standoff, but he likened guarding Monroe to “watching a horror movie.” After one skirmish Frazier marvelled, “You’d have to knock him out to stop him. He gets his body between you and the ball so you can’t get at it.Yet, he seems so relaxed. He doesn’t show a bit of pressure.” Amazing as he was, Monroe failed to satisfy many basketball purists, who tended to downplay his overall value. Although he had led Baltimore to winning seasons and had carried his college team to a national championship, some perceived Monroe as simply a show-off who cared more about scoring baskets than about winning games. Monroe never had a chance to prove his critics wrong in Baltimore. On Nov. 10, 1971, the unthinkable happened: Monroe was traded to the hated Knicks. During the offseason he had wrangled with Bullets management over his salary, and he had considered defecting to the American Basketball Association’s Indiana Pacers. The Knicks parted with Mike Riordan, Dave Stallworth and cash to obtain Monroe. New York managed to retain the core group from its 1969-70

championship team, but not everyone cheered the trade. Critics questioned whether Monroe’s one-on-one style would clash with the team-oriented Knicks, who stressed defense and unselfish basketball, and whether he would fit in the backcourt alongside superstar and archrival Frazier.

Following his retirement Monroe took his flair for showmanship into the entertainment industry. He managed several singing groups, launched a record company called Pretty Pearl Records, and returned to basketball to work as a television commentator.

At first, Monroe had trouble adapting to the new system in New York. With Frazier in the driver’s seat, Monroe handled the ball less than ever. He was also hobbled by battered knees and ankle problems during the 1971-72 season, limiting his playing time to 21.2 minutes per game. As a result, his scoring plummeted to 11.9 ppg. But during their second year together, Monroe and Frazier began to complement one another well. By season’s end they looked so good together that reporters were referring to them as the “Rolls Royce backcourt.”

In 1989, Monroe was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and in 1996 was named to the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. “If for any reason someone were to remember me,” he said during an interview with HOOP, “I hope they will remember me as a person who could play the game and excite the fans and excite himself.”

After finishing second in the Atlantic Division, the Knicks faced Baltimore again in the playoffs. Monroe encountered signs that read, “Benedict Monroe.” Nevertheless, the Knicks defeated the Bullets in five games. In one game Monroe scored 32 points, his career high with the Knicks. New York went on to conquer the Boston Celtics, who had led the NBA with 68 victories, with a dramatic 94-78 seventh-game victory in Boston. The Knicks advanced to the 1973 NBA Finals and claimed the title by defeating the Los Angeles Lakers in five games. Monroe tallied 23 points in the deciding game.

There’s little doubt that anyone who saw Monroe play will ever forget him. Earl the Pearl helped herald a new era in basketball, a more exciting game that showcased dazzling individual skills within a team context. He proved that you could win-and have a magical time doing it.

By the end of the 1972-73 season Monroe had become a Madison Square Garden favorite. Although he averaged a relatively modest 15.5 ppg that year, his moves were as dazzling as ever. Reporters noted that he played unselfishly, passing up shots when teammates had better chances at the basket. He was also routinely given the defensive assignment of guarding the opposing team’s highest-scoring guard, thereby giving Frazier more freedom to make steals by patrolling the passing lanes. “I’m more dedicated, sure, and a different type of player,” Monroe told HOOP magazine. “With Walt Frazier around I don’t handle the ball as much. But as great a team as the Knicks are, it boils down to one-on-one.” After that championship year the Knicks began to falter. Willis Reed, on injured legs, lasted one more campaign. Jerry Lucas and Dave DeBusschere also retired after the 1973-74 season. Bill Bradley stayed on until 1977, the same year New York traded Frazier to the Cleveland Cavaliers. During the mid-1970s, Monroe continued to be productive. He posted scoring averages of 20.9 ppg in 1974-75, 20.7 in 1975-76, and 19.9 in 1976-77. Monroe was an All-Star in 1975 and 1977, but the Knicks fell into decline, missing the playoffs entirely in 1979 and 1980, Monroe’s last two seasons. Monroe retired in 1980 after averaging only 7.4 points in 51 appearances. During his 13-year career he had amassed 17,454 points in 926 games, evidence of his durability despite a history of knee and leg problems.

MEDIA GUIDE

ELECTRONIC MEDIA REGULATIONS Winston-Salem State University Athletics has its own home page on the Internet (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 co-owned by WSSU, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the radio and television partners of those two entities. “Real Time” is defined as any online 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 play-by-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, the statement “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.
