2014 CLINIC FEATURE SPEAKERS Stephanie White, Indiana Fever Stephanie White is entering her fourth season as an assistant coach for the Indiana Fever. The 2012 WNBA title held special meaning for White, who was one of the original Fever players in 2000 and a member of the Fever’s All-Decade Team announced in 2009. She retired from playing in the WNBA following the 2004 season, and she has coached in the college or pro ranks since 2003. White’s hiring in 2011 marked the first time the Fever has hired an assistant coach with pro playing experience. White was reunited with Fever head coach Lin Dunn, the former Purdue coach who recruited White to the West Lafayette campus. Prior to joining the Fever, White spent four seasons as an assistant coach with the Chicago Sky after previous stints as a college assistant at Ball State, Kansas State and Toledo. White also has parlayed her playing and coaching into a prominent broadcasting career with the Big Ten Network and ESPN. She appears regularly on the BTN women’s basketball studio show and provides game analysis for both networks. After leading Purdue to a national championship in 1999 and being drafted by the Charlotte Sting, White was acquired by the Fever in a draftday trade in December 1999 to lead her hometown team into its first season of existence. A former Indiana Miss Basketball and a Purdue All-American, White played four seasons with the Fever and five pro seasons overall. She still ranks prominently among Fever franchise leaders in games played, minutes, 3pointers, assists, steals, 3-point percentage and free throw percentage. Her 93 percent free throw shooting in 2003 remains a Fever record. White’s legacy as a high school and college star made her one of the state’s most popular figures even before she donned a Fever uniform. Beginning with a prep career at Seeger Memorial High School, White set standards for basketball excellence while becoming an Indiana icon. She averaged 36.9 points and 13.1 rebounds as a high school senior while being named the 1995 national high school player of the year. She led Seeger to a 92-7 record over four seasons and finished her prep career with a then-Indiana record 2,869 points. White took her game to Purdue and averaged double-figure scoring for the Boilermakers in four straight seasons. As a college senior, she averaged 20.2 points and 4.5 assists while leading Purdue to the NCAA title and earning the 1999 Wade Trophy as the national college player of the year. White finished her Boilermaker career second in school history in points and assists, and she has since been inducted into the Purdue Athletics Hall of Fame. Greg Lansing, Indiana State University Greg Lansing recently completed his fourth season as the men's basketball coach at Indiana State. He previously spent eight seasons with the program as an assistant coach, including the final three years as associate head coach. Lansing has compiled a 79-55 record as boss of the Sycamores. He owns a mark of 41-31 in Missouri Valley Conference games. Lansing is 7-3 in the MVC Tournament, with three of those victories coming as the lower-seeded team. ISU has reached the NIT the past two seasons, and his 79 career victories rank in the top 10 of ISU’s all-time men’s basketball coaching win list. In 2013-14, ISU went 23-11 overall, 12-6 in MVC play, advanced to the finals of the MVC Tournament and reached the postseason for the fifth consecutive season – facing Arkansas in the NIT. In 2012-13, Indiana State finished 1815, advanced to the semifinals of the MVC Tournament and played in the NIT. In 2011-12, the Sycamores posted an 18-15 record and advanced to the CollegeInsiders.com Postseason Tournament. Lansing burst onto the scene as a rookie head coach with the Sycamore basketball program in 2010-11 as he became just the second-ever Indiana State head coach to lead the team to the NCAA Tournament in his first season. He led the team to a 20-14 record, becoming just the 14th head coach in the history of the Missouri Valley Conference to lead a team to 20 or more victories in their first year at the helm. Prior to joining the staff at Indiana State, Lansing was the boys' basketball coach at Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa. Roosevelt had not had a winning season in 12 years before Lansing’s initial season. The Roughriders went on to have back-to-back winning seasons under Lansing’s direction. Lansing earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Dakota in 1990 and a master’s degree in counseling from USD in 1992. As a member of the Coyote basketball team, Lansing helped South Dakota reach the NCAA Division II Tournament during his junior and senior seasons, the first NCAA invitations for USD since 1954. He twice was named the South Dakota Defensive Player of the Year. He also is ranked among the USD leaders
in career assists. Following his playing career, Lansing served as a graduate assistant coach at South Dakota for two seasons. In 1992-93 he was a full-time assistant. Lansing’s father, Dave Lansing, coached high school basketball for 33 years in Iowa. Dave Lansing was inducted into the Iowa High School Athletic Association Coaches Hall of Fame in 1999. His brother, Steve, is a high school boys’ basketball head coach in Minnesota. Lansing is married to the former Angie Menser, who is an Indiana State graduate and a former track and cross country Academic All-American for the Sycamores. Angie is a Batesville native and currently serves as ISU’s senior woman administrator and athletics business manager. Todd Lickliter, Marian University Todd Lickliter recently completed his second season at the helm of the Marian University men's basketball program. He was named the seventh head men’s basketball coach in program history on June 6, 2012. In two seasons, Lickliter has guided the Knights to 17-13 and 16-8 overall records with 8-12 and 12-6 marks in the Crossroads League. Lickliter came to Marian from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he served one season as an assistant coach. Prior to Miami, Lickliter amassed a 169-119 career record as head coach at the University of Iowa (2007-10) and Butler University (2001-07). He also served two stints as assistant coach at Butler (1988-89 and 1999-2001) and a stint as an assistant coach at Eastern Michigan University (1997-99). In three seasons at the University of Iowa, Lickliter went 38-58. In six seasons at Butler, Lickliter earned a 131-61 record and led the Bulldogs to four post-season basketball tournament berths, including trips to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2003 and 2007. Butler averaged 22 wins those six seasons, winning league titles in 2002, 2003 and 2007. The Bulldogs won four in-season tournaments, including the 2006 NIT Season Tip-Off and the 2006 Wooden Classic. He was named the 2006-07 Division I Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and was recognized as the HighMajor Coach of the Year by collegehoops.net. He was also named 2007 Horizon League Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year after guiding the Bulldogs to a school and league-record 29 victories. Along with winning at least 20 games in four of six seasons at Butler, Lickliter's student-athletes also excelled in the classroom. Butler's graduation rate of 82 percent for men's basketball in Lickliter's final season ranked best among all Sweet Sixteen teams in the 2007 NCAA Tournament. Butler also held the top graduation rate among NCAA Sweet Sixteen teams when the Bulldogs advanced past Mississippi State and Louisville in the 2003 NCAA Tournament. Lickliter became the first coach in Horizon League history to be honored by the NABC as Coach of the Year. He owns three of the top single-season win totals in Butler history, including 29 wins in 2007, 26 in 2002 and 27 in 2003. The Bulldogs also won 20 games in 2004. Lickliter ranks fourth on Butler's all-time list for basketball coaching victories. He ranks second among Butler head coaches with at least three seasons in winning percentage (.682) and second in number of 20-win seasons (four). He became the first Butler coach to reach 50 career wins in just two seasons and the first to achieve 100 victories in five seasons. And, he's one of just four coaches in the history of the Horizon League to guide a team to the NCAA "Sweet Sixteen.” Lickliter began his collegiate coaching career at Butler in 1988-89 under Joe Sexson, his former college coach. He left Butler after one year to accept a head coaching job at Danville High School, where he remained for three seasons. He returned to the collegiate ranks in 1996 as an administrative assistant on Barry Collier's staff at Butler. Lickliter accepted an assistant coaching position at Eastern Michigan in 1997 and remained on the Eagles' staff for two seasons before returning to Butler in 1999. In addition to his collegiate coaching experience, Lickliter had high school head coaching stints at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis (1979-87) and Danville High School (1987-88, 1989-92). He also coached a partial season in Saudi Arabia with the Ah Ahli Sports Club-Jeddah. Lickliter, 58, has had a presence in Indiana basketball dating back to his days as a three-year starting guard at North Central High School in Indianapolis, where he played for his father, Arlan. He began his college career at North Carolina-Wilmington before transferring to Central Florida Community College. He played one season at Central Florida, earning his associate degree in 1977. He then transferred to Butler, where he played his final two collegiate seasons, 1977-79. He earned a bachelor's degree in secondary education from Butler in 1979. Lickliter and his wife, Joez, have three adult sons – Ry, Garrett and John.

2014 CLINIC FEATURE SPEAKERS CONTINUED Jim Shaw, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Jim Shaw has led Rose-Hulman to six NCAA Division III Tournament appearances, five regular-season conference championships and four conference tournament titles in his 20 years as head coach of the Fightin' Engineers. Shaw most recently became the second men’s basketball coach in Rose-Hulman history to win 300 games in his career, including 82 wins over the last four seasons. He now holds a 303-221 career mark. The recent run of success includes NCAA Division III Tournament appearances in 2012, 2013 and 2014; Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament championships in 2012, 2013 and 2014; and conference regular-season titles in 2013 and 2014. In addition, the Engineers have won 20 games three straight times for the first time in school history (with six 20 -win seasons total). Recognized by his peers as one of the top coaches in the NCAA Midwest Region, Shaw has been named conference Coach of the Year five times during his Rose-Hulman tenure (1996, 1997, 2001, 2013 and 2014). In 2013, he was recognized by the National Association of Basketball Coaches as Midwest Region Coach of the Year and was also a finalist for the Glenn Robinson National Coach of the Year award. Shaw’s teams have qualified for the D-III National Tournament six times. His Engineers won the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament in 1996, giving Rose-Hulman its first NCAA berth in seven seasons. They earned subsequent NCAA berths in 1997 from the ICAC, in 1999 from the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, and in 2012, 2013 and 2014 from the HCAC. His 2013 team also led the nation in scoring defense, allowing fewer than 52 points per game. Shaw began his college coaching career at Rose-Hulman under current DePauw coach Bill Fenlon. He spent five seasons working under both Fenlon and former Rose-Hulman coach Bill Perkins. The Engineers compiled a 72-55 record during that five-year span. Shaw’s coaching career has not been limited to the collegiate level. He served as an assistant coach under Pat Rady at Terre Haute South High School from 1986-88, where he coached former NFL tight end Tony McGee and former Indiana University and NBA player Brian Evans. During that two-year stint, the Braves went 40-9 with two sectionals and a regional title, and were ranked No. 1 in Indiana. Shaw graduated from Terre Haute South in 1978, and he earned bachelor’s degrees in journalism and political science from Indiana University in 1982. He added a master’s degree in sports administration from Indiana State in 1989. Greg Tonagel, Indiana Wesleyan Greg Tonagel recently completed his ninth season at the helm of the Indiana Wesleyan University men’s basketball team. Since becoming the Wildcats’ coach in April 2005, Tonagel has guided IWU to unprecedented success both on and off the court. With a 235-75 record, seven conference championships, four elite eight appearances and this past season, Tonagel reached uncharted territory by leading the Wildcats to their first NAIA Division II national championship. For his efforts, he was named the NABC/NAIA Division II National Coach of the Year. Tonagel has been named the conference Coach of the Year five times. His teams have spent time in the top five of the national polls in each of the last eight years. Despite being a head coach for only nine seasons, Tonagel already is the winningest coach in IWU program history. He has the highest winning percentage, the most regular season victories, the most post-season victories, the most national tournament appearances and the most wins in the school history along with the only seven conference championships. A former Valparaiso University point guard, known for his hard work and energy, Tonagel has brought those characteristics to the Wildcats’ basketball program. Tonagel was introduced as the IWU men’s basketball coach on April 1, 2005. Drawing from experience gained from leading the Valparaiso Crusaders to four NCAA tournament appearances as a starting point guard, along with the tutelage of mentor Homer Drew, Tonagel has helped orchestrate a new era of Wildcats’ basketball. Indiana Wesleyan has posted the seven best seasons in program history under Tonagel. The team set a school record with 31 wins in 2013-14. Previously, the Wildcats had set school records with 30 wins in 2006-07 and tied that mark with 30 wins in 2009-10. Prior to Tonagel’s hiring, the Wildcats had won seven games and finished
last in the Mid-Central Conference. The program improved by 10 wins under Tonagel’s tutelage in his first year on the bench and reached the NAIA Elite Eight in his second season. Making a name for himself when it comes to program building, Tonagel has done it through sound developmental teaching and highcaliber recruiting. Known for defense, the Wildcats led the nation in scoring defense at 59 points per game at the completion of the 2006-07 regular season. They also ranked in the top 10 in the nation in six defensive categories in 2009-10. Although it all starts on the defensive end for the Wildcats, an up-tempo, aggressive offensive style that utilizes skilled and creative play has rejuvenated Luckey Arena into a fantastic place to experience a basketball game. Tonagel and his staff have introduced an innovative offensive style that players want to be a part of and fans desire to see. Perhaps the biggest influence that Tonagel and the staff have had on the program is the "I am Third" culture. Fostering a mentality that seeks to put God first, others second and oneself third has created a culture of success. Success that comes from enlarging those around you. It's a success that comes from serving a purpose greater than oneself. Tonagel’s teams have passion and toughness. They are known for the work ethic. Whether it is writing a paper, helping a neighbor or working out in the gym, Tonagel demands commitment and 100 percent effort from each studentathlete. Many consider Tonagel’s weight and conditioning programs to be as challenging as any around. Players learn to bond together, which is the only way to survive these grueling workouts. Prior to his current position, Tonagel served as Director of Basketball Operations at Valparaiso University, where he played in four NCAA Tournaments. He also led his LaPorte High School team to the last single-class State Finals in 1997. Tonagel and his wife, Amy, have three children – Jace, William, and Allie. The coach is active in a number of organizations and causes, most notably his church. Jason Delaney, Indianapolis Tech Jason Delaney recently completed his third season as boys' basketball coach at Indianapolis Tech, leading the Titans to the Class 4A state championship. Delaney's teams have gone 64-12 during his tenure at Tech, including a 27-2 mark in 2013-14. In 10 seasons as a head coach, his career record is 145-90. A 1995 graduate of Lafayette Central Catholic, Delaney competed in basketball for the Knights. He attended Ball State University, where he received a bachelor's degree in secondary education in 2001. Delaney began his career as a head coach at Waldron in 2003-04, guiding the Mohawks to the Class A state championship with a 27-0 undefeated season. He then moved to Southport for four seasons, to Anderson Highland for one season, to Indianapolis Washington for one season and then to Indianapolis Tech for the past three seasons. His teams have won two sectionals (2004, 2014), two regionals (2004, 2014), two semistates (2004, 2014) and two state championships (2004, 2014). Shane Adams, Shoot-A-Way Basketball Shane Adams has been a Shoot-A-Way clinician since 2004, speaking at more than 50 clinics over the past 10 years. He will talk to the IBCA audience on “Game-Like Shooting Drills.” Adams has coached high school basketball for eight seasons, five years in Colorado and three years in Ohio. His teams have captured four conference championships, two regional titles, two Elite Eight crowns and one state championship. In Ohio, Adams was boys’ basketball coach at Upper Sandusky High School from 2010-13 with a record of 38-27. In Colorado, Adams was a boys’ basketball assistant at Sangre de Cristo High School for three seasons, helping the team to a 61-13 record over that span and a state championship in 2001. He became the Sangre de Christo girls’ head coach for two seasons, going 32-12 and leading the team to a regional crown. He also has been a girls’ basketball head coach at Del Norte (Colo.) High School and an assistant women’s basketball coach at Adams State College in Colorado. Adams also owned and operated the ABC Basketball Skills Academy from 2004-08. He specialized in shooting and skills instruction for junior high and high school athletes from all over the state of Colorado.

IBCA INITIATIVE AGAINST CANCER Thanks to all coaches, teams, schools and dedicated community members who have participated in the sixth annual IBCA initiative against cancer. Your contributions to support the fight against cancer are much appreciated. As the e-Newsletter goes to press, with some schools not yet reporting, participating schools have reported raising $71,849 -- many schools through the American Cancer Society’s formal Coaches vs. Cancer program and some schools raising funds and donating to other cancer-related charities such as Susan G. Komen Foundation, the Sharon L. Bassett Foundation or other local hospitals or agencies. This year’s efforts by Indiana coaches brings the six-year total of money raised to fight cancer to more than $680,446 through the 2013-14 season. Those coaches who got their teams involved in the fight against cancer are teaching their players something more important than offense or defense. Coaches are teaching their players a skill that will carry on throughout their lives and into the communities where they will work and serve. Please continue to be a positive influence on the youth of our great state, and help them become productive citizens of tomorrow. The following is a list of schools that have informed the IBCA and/or the American Cancer Society about their participation in an event to raise funds for cancer charities: School – Amount raised Adams Central girls -- $325 Barr-Reeve boys -- $497 Batesville boys -- $297 Beech Grove boys -- $1,233 Bethany Christian boys -- $120 Bloomington North boys -- $164 Bloomington North girls -- $299 Bloomington South girls -- $1,208 Brownsburg boys -- $600 Brownstown Central girls -- $3,278 Cardinal Ritter girls -- $175 Carmel boys -- $1,073 Cascade boys -- $143 Clinton Prairie girls -- $280 Covenant Christian (Indianapolis) girls -- $256 Columbus North girls -- $3,320 Crown Point boys -- $1,500 Eastern Greene (boys, girls ?) -- $332 Eastern Hancock boys -- $587 Edgewood girls -- $337 Fairfield boys/girls -- $1,344 Forest Park boys -- $1,133
It’s that time of year again. We are working on putting together the 2014 edition of the All-Star series with Kentucky. We are coming off our best crowd in the past six years. I have been asked many times how the Indiana All-Star team is selected, and I would like to share with you some of the selection process. In one respect, this is the easiest job in the state. At the same time, it may be the most difficult. Year in and year out, there is a seemingly endless supply of All-Star-caliber talent, but the challenging part is that we only have 13 uniforms. Three things we try to keep in mind in the process – we try to be informed, we try to be fair and we try to be qualified. There is no perfect process, and some subjectivity always is an unavoidable aspect of the selection process. We try to see as many potential All-Stars as possible in person. Knowing that we cannot see all of them, we have a group of current and retired coaches from around Indiana who “scout” games throughout the state and provide input to us. Another useful tool in the evaluation process is video. With the advent of firms such as Krossover and HUDL, we get to see several videos of potential AllStars. We also attend the IBCA’s Top 100 Showcase each July and the Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 Senior Workouts each March and April to see how the players perform and to see how they work together with their teammates. Each year, the IBCA has two groups of 22 coaches from around the state (one group for boys, another group for girls) that select the All-State team. We attend their meetings and listen to what they have to say about the candidates. We seek the input of our Junior All-Star Coaches. They had the opportunity to work with several potential All-Stars, and they fill out an extensive evaluation form on each player. However, this does not mean that Junior AllStars from one year are the only candidates considered for the next year’s (senior) All-Star team. In fact, of the last 10 (senior) All-Star teams selected, the All-Stars have had at least one player on each team who had not been chosen a Junior All-Star the previous year. We must also look at the positions played by the candidates. It is pretty obvious that we cannot field a team of 12 point guards when we face the Kentucky All-Stars. We need guards, forwards and centers. Finally, we sit down with the All-Star coaching staffs for that specific year to discuss personnel with them as we try to fill out a roster that will be competitive and represent Indiana well. One other question that arises in some years is the use of a 14th uniform. That is for a player who clearly would have been an All-Star, but because of a severe injury, he or she cannot finish his or her careers. They DO NOT take anyone's uniform from the top 13 chosen, but they deservedly receive the lifetime honor of being selected an All-Star. Perhaps Steve Witty describes the entire process best. The veteran coach calls this is a selection process, not a rejection one. We try to reward those players who have had outstanding careers and at the same time select a team that can beat Kentucky. Thank you for all you do for our players throughout the state! --Charlie Hall

IBCA PROPOSALS TO THE IHSAA This is the year the IBCA was able to make proposals to the IHSAA concerning our sport. After surveying all head coaches, with strong support from head coaches, the IBCA decided to make two proposals: 1. An idea to change the state tournament format. 2. To change to length of quarters for JV games from six minutes to seven minutes.
INDIANA-KENTUCKY CHALLENGE CUP A new item on the IBCA calendar in 2013-14 was the Indiana-Kentucky Challenge Cup, a five-game event between teams from Indiana and Kentucky. The event was coordinated by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches. The first Challenge Cup was held on Jan. 11 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, and Kentucky captured the Cup crown by winning four of five games that day. Girls: Elizabethtown (Ky.) 52, Roncalli 39 Boys: Elizabethtown (Ky.) 51, Barr-Reeve 40 Boys: Covington Catholic (Ky.) 63, Corydon Central 43 Boys: Park Tudor 90, Hopkinsville (Ky.) 83, OT Boys: Louisville Ballard (Ky.) 77, Guerin Catholic 71 In addition to the games, there was a cheering section competition. Also, a Job Fair was held for military service veterans. Veterans and their immediate families were admitted at no charge, and proceeds from the event benefited the Wounded Warrior Program as well as the Indiana and Kentucky basketball halls of fame. The “Challenge Cup” is on display at the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame. The second Indiana-Kentucky Challenge Cup is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2015, and will be played in the New Castle Fieldhouse. An IBCA committee will choose the teams from Indiana for the event. If your team is interested, please contact IBCA assistant director Tom Beach at [email protected] This is not an “exempt” event, so playing in this event must be within the IHSAA schedule limits.
Both proposals were presented to the Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association on March 23 and to the IHSAA Executive Committee on March 28. Both the IIAAA and the IHSAA received both proposals with positive feedback. The IHSAA now is studying the proposals and will take action on them at its board meeting on May 5.

2014 VIRGIL SWEET DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARDS Each year the IBCA Board of Directors selects individuals from each of the three IBCA Districts to receive the Virgil Sweet Distinguished Service Award. The award, named in honor of the longtime former Executive Director of the IBCA, is given to individuals who have provided meritorious service in the promotion of basketball in the state of Indiana. Chuck Freeby - District 1 WHME sports director Chuck Freeby knows the complete Michiana sports scene as well as anyone, mainly because he has been a part of it all his life. Born in South Bend, he is a 1982 graduate of Elkhart Central High School. In 1986, he received a B.A. in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame. These days, he is well known for his love of area high school sports. That passion showed for 17 years at WNDU-TV, where Freeby pioneered “Friday Night Flights” during football season and “Roundball Roundup” for basketball. Now Freeby is at WHME-TV 46, where he calls play-by-play on the high school football and basketball “Game of the Week,” various college sports events, including Notre Dame baseball, and provides morning sports reports on Pulse FM. Freeby is also a co-host of LeSea’s “Harvest” show, reporting international news every weekday. An award-winning journalist, Freeby has received honors for his reporting of a variety of sports events, including his radio play-by-play calls of Notre Dame hockey. He also has done play-by-play and color commentary for SportsChannel Chicago. For the last few years, Freeby has been doing double-duty, working his full-time job at LeSea and filling in part-time at WNDU. Freeby also takes on the challenge of giving back to the community in the form of public service. He is a frequent guest speaker and auctioneer around town for a variety of charities. He served for many years as a board member for the Women's Care Center and co-chair of the annual House Raffle, which benefits both Women’s Care Center and the Healthy Family Center of Mishawaka. His work over the last 19 years has raised millions of dollars for the Michiana community. He has also served as a coach and umpire at Chet Waggoner Little League and in the Inter-City Catholic League. Freeby and his wife, Diane, have six children – Peter, Christopher, Mary, Jeanie, Rosie and T.J. Steve Hanlon - District 1 Steve Hanlon is a 1981 graduate of Crown Point High School and a 1991 graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, Mo. Hanlon began his professional writing career at The Times of Northwest Indiana in 1991, working there for nine years before moving to The Indianapolis Star in 2000. He worked in Indianapolis for four years before returning to The Times in 2004 because he missed his family and the outstanding pizza. Hanlon is a Chicago Cubs’ fan, which makes him quite happy on certain days. Same goes for the Chicago Bears. Since Larry Bird retired, his interest in the NBA has dropped. Hanlon loves covering the “black-and-blue” style of the high school game in his corner of the state. Hanlon and his wife, Karen, have two daughters – Marley and Gracie. Bob Nagle - District 1 Bob Nagle is in his 38th year of broadcasting in the South Bend area. Bob grew up in Mishawaka and attended Marian High School during some of its greatest years. From 1968 through 1971, Bob Otolski’s football Knights were 345-1, including back-to-back undefeated seasons in 1969 and 1970. That lit a spark in Nagle, who played only one season but stayed on as a team manager, student trainer and team videographer. The technology was new in 1971 and while videoing games, Nagle added commentary to the action. Coach Otolski discovered that when a letter from a recruiter asked him to “send us your announcer”; Coach Otolski passed that to Nagle with the suggestion that he pursue that in the future. That began the next fall at IU-South Bend. During his team at IUSB, Nagle was taught by veteran broadcaster Roland Kelly, who later served as Nagle’s sports director at WSBT. Nagle’s professional career began at WSBT during the 1977-78 school year with broadcasts of high school football, high school basketball and Notre Dame basketball with Lynn Thornton and Jerry Bleck.

In the late 1970s and 1980s, he also served as the Indiana AAU girls’ basketball chairman before the program became so large that a separate girls’ chairman took over and Hughes focused his attention on the booming boys’ program. Hughes also served as AAU boys’ basketball Midwest chairman from 1975-81. In addition, Hughes organized the Madison County Sertoma All-Star Basketball game from 1974 through 1994, proceeds benefiting Special Olympics programming.

2014 VIRGIL SWEET DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARDS CONTINUED High School Shootout each summer (which has grown into the largest boys’ basketball summer event in Indiana) and has awarded more than $10,000 in college scholarships to its members. Over the years, Hughes also served Indiana AAU as the state registration chairman, second vice president and first vice president. Providing his efforts without pay throughout, Hughes has been recognized with numerous awards over the years. Among them are the Joe Boland Award from the Indiana Sportswriters & Sportscasters Association for service to youth in 1989 and again in 1996; the Dr. James Macholtz Award from Indiana Special Olympics in 1987; Special Contribution Award from Indiana AAU in 1983; the Outstanding Volunteer Leadership Award from Indiana AAU in 1990; Vision Award from AAU National boys’ basketball in 1991; and being recognized as Sertoman of the Year from the Anderson Sertoma Club in 1989 and 1990.

In 1964, he moved to a position with General Motors in Anderson and remained there until retiring in 2006. Now 74 years young, Hughes and his wife, Catherine, enjoy spending time with their adult children – Debbie, Sherry, Jill, April, Rodney, Greg and Marcus – as well as five grandchildren. Andy Graham - District 3 Andy Graham, a decidedly mediocre basketball player on a Westfield Shamrocks team that won 18 games in 1973 (no thanks to him), is a 1978 Indiana University graduated who joined the Bloomington Herald-Telephone (now Herald-Times) staff in 1982. He has quite contentedly worked there ever since, covering both sports and news. Graham has won many awards over that span, such as the 1997 Corky Lamm Indiana Sportswriter of the Year honor and, more recently, was named the state's top sports columnist in 2012 by the Hoosier State Press Association and the nation's top sports columnist for the H-T's circulation class in 2013 by the Associated Press Sports Editors. Graham was a 2013 inductee to the Indiana Sportswriters & Sportscasters Association Hall of Fame. He worked alongside Bob Hammel at the H-T, covering virtually every IU football and basketball game for 15 years, before becoming the primary beat writer for IU football. He also covered IU soccer for 19 years, including Coach Jerry Yeagley's first five NCAA championship clubs. He covered the 1987 and 1992 NCAA men's basketball Final Fours and the 2000 NBA Finals. Graham has served as the primary writer for Indiana high school basketball throughout his H-T sports tenure. He relished perusing papers from around the state to write a weekly statewide-oriented high school basketball column for many years and annually selected the H-T's Top 15 All-State Basketball Team, picked with solicited input from the state's coaches and therefore one of the most respected lists pertaining to Indiana players. The Top 15 edition was discontinued following Graham’s adjournment in 2001 to the H-T's news side to cover education and the arts – and, most especially, to keep more regular family hours while his sons were growing up. He returned to sports writing in 2010 and counts among his current duties serving as columnist for IU football and as the lead beat writer for Indiana high school boys' basketball and high school baseball. He writes a high school basketball notebook every Monday during the season, writes features and columns, and generally orchestrates coverage of the nine high school teams in the H-T region. He also selects an H-T All-Area Boys' Basketball Team every spring. A devotee of all things Hoosier Hysteria, Graham made formal presentation of a state basketball tournament format proposal called "The Big Dance Compromise" to both IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox, in the fall of 2012, and a distinguished IBCA panel in the spring of 2013. Graham lives in Bloomington with his wonderful wife, Susie, and their splendid sons, Alex and Evan (when they're home from college), and cats Calvin and Hobbes. He gets to spend lots of time in Indiana's venerable gymnasiums, which only adds to his happiness and gratification. Graham was and is a very fortunate man. (But he still devoutly wishes the Shamrocks could have knocked off Carmel in that 1973 double-overtime sectional title game, which would have earned them a trip to the ever-wondrous Wigwam.)
Johnny McCrory - District 3 Johnny McCrory arrived at, what was then, WOOO in Shelbyville in 1998.

2013-14 ADMINISTRATORS OF THE YEAR CONTINUED Phil Ford - Principal Jay County - District 2 Phil Ford is currently in his sixth year as principal at Jay County High School. He started his teaching career at Amelia High School in Ohio in 1972, then taught chemistry at Delta High School before joining the staff at Jay County teaching biology and chemistry in 1976. He served as a dean for three years at Jay County before becoming the school’s Athletic Director. He then expanded his administrative experience at Wes-Del High School as Athletic Director and Assistant Principal for five years.

As a long-time advocate of the importance of all extra- and co-curricular activities to the successful development of high school students, Ford recently offered a proposed By-Law change to the IHSAA that would allow Junior Varsity and Freshmen games to increase the six-minute quarter to seven minutes, in order to provide increased opportunity for student-athletes to participate. While he has embraced the day-to-day challenges of being the principal of a large rural high school, he counts his years as an Athletic Director as some of his most enjoyable, largely due to the experiences of working with the athletes, coaches, officials and other administrators he has met and grown to know across the state of Indiana.
In addition, Ford gives credit to the many principals he has served under and the assistant principals that he has both learned from and worked side by side with over the years. Phil Gardner, Bob Lutton, Harold Schutz, John Minch, Bill Goshert, Larry Paxson and Jim Elbert are all included in the group that he counts as facilitators to any success he has achieved.

2014 COACHES’ ROUNDTABLE PARTICIPANTS A roundtable of former coaches is one of the items planned for the 2014 IBCA Spring Clinic. This year’s panel features a trio of coaches – Sam Alford, Jim Irwin and Donna Sullivan – who will offer their expertise on building programs that stand the test of time. Here is more info on each of the panelists. Sam Alford Sam Alford amassed more than 450 wins as a high school basketball coach in Indiana and coached nine additional years as a college assistant. Alford earned much attention as the coach at New Castle, where his teams posted a 300-188 record over 20 seasons. He was an assistant coach for two years at Franklin and also was a head coach at Monroe City, South Knox and Martinsville – finishing with a career record of 452-245 in 29 seasons at Indiana high schools. As a high school coach, his teams won 17 sectionals, six regionals and one semistate. He then moved to the college ranks, assisting his son Steve at Southwest Missouri State for four years and the University of Iowa for five years. As a college coach, he was a part of three teams that earned berths in the NCAA Tournament. Alford coached sons Steve and Sean at New Castle, and more than 50 of Alford’s prep players went on to play college basketball. Alford three times was chosen an IBCA District Coach of the Year – District 3 in 1975 at Martinsville and District 4 in 1979 and 1995 at New Castle. He also was North Central Conference Coach of the Year three times, a former IBCA president and was Indiana’s nominee for national coach of the year in 1984 and 1986. Alford was chosen as the Indiana All-Star head coach in 1985 after serving as an All-Star assistant coach in 1984. He also was chairman of the NABC’s High School Rules Committee for 14 years. One of his top memories as a high school coach was a weekend in 1983 when New Castle hosted Marion (with James Blackmon) on Friday night, then hosted Cathedral (with Scott Hicks and Shelton Smith) the next day. He recalls more than 18,000 fans attending the two games – both sellouts in the 9,325seat New Castle Fieldhouse. Another top memory was the opportunity to speak at the NABC Conference in 1979 held in conjunction with the NCAA Final Four. That was the year where Indiana State and Larry Bird played Michigan State and Magic Johnson in the NCAA championship game. Over the years, Alford noted that he has delivered talks on basketball in 28 states and in Europe. Alford was a standout athlete at Washington High School where he graduated in 1956 and earned 14 varsity letters. He carried on the tradition at Franklin College, where he earned another 10 letters in basketball, baseball, cross country and tennis. Alford averaged 21 points as a senior in 1960, leading the nation in free throw shooting and earning Little All-American Honors. Alford was chosen to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame Silver Anniversary Team in 1985. He was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002. He also has been inducted into the Franklin College Hall of Fame. These days, Alford, 71, is a vice president of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame and is a director of the Steve Alford Basketball Camp, a position he has held for 28 years. Alford and his wife, Sharan, live in Brown County. They enjoy keeping up with their sons, daughters-in-law and seven grandchildren, who range in age from 21 to 12, as well as following UCLA and high school basketball. Alford also spends time fishing, golfing, following the St. Louis Cardinals and working with Franklin College and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. Jim Irwin Jim Irwin coached Indiana high school basketball for 37 years, including 18 years as a head coach at four schools. He was inducted into the Kosciusko County Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. A 1960 graduate of Atwood High School in northern Indiana, Irwin led the Greyhounds in scoring as a senior with 320 points. He played two years of basketball at Emporia University in Kansas before transferring to Ball State and playing two years of baseball for the Cardinals. Irwin begin his coaching career in 1964 as a boys’ basketball assistant coach at Straughn for two years, then worked five years as an assistant at Pierceton. He followed by assisting for four seasons at Whitko, then landed his first head coaching position in 1975 at Bluffton. Irwin guided the Tigers for five seasons, his teams winning sectional crowns in 1976 and 1977. He then moved to Southern Wells for five years, capturing another sectional title in 1982. He followed with a two-year head coaching stint at Salem.
Irwin then assisted for five seasons at Eastbrook before becoming the Panthers’ head coach from 1995-2001 – collecting a final sectional championship in 1998. Irwin, who earned bachelor’s degrees in history and physical education, was the BSU Alumni Coach of the Year in 1982. Over the years, he noted he was “fired once, RIF’d once, resigned once (not forced) and never coached a Division I player.” He also indicated that he was fortunate to have coached his three sons, Rob, Dave and John. He also observed there was a time when he and all three sons were head basketball coaches at the same time, while daughter Jennifer works as a teacher and cheer coach. Irwin and his wife, Mary Ann, live in Warsaw. They enjoy seeing their children and 12 grandchildren. They especially enjoy watching their grandchildren play basketball and pursue their other activities.

Sullivan was the Indiana All-Star head coach in 1989. She also was the All -Star assistant coach in 1982. She describes her All-Star experience as well as the opportunity to guide so many wonderful young women as the top memories of her coaching career.

She began coaching at Seymour in the fall of 1970 and stayed there until retirement in 2001.

The 33rd annual Girls’ Top 60 Senior Workout was held on the campus of Marian University on the westside of Indianapolis on Sunday, March 16, 2014. The 27th annual Boys’ Top 60 Senior Workout will take place at Marian University in Indianapolis on Sunday, April 6, 2014. Both Top 60 Senior Workouts begin at 1 p.m. and include two sessions – 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The two workouts are coordinated by Hoosier Basketball publisher Garry Donna. Four-time state championship coach Rick Risinger of Heritage Christian served as on-court director of the 2014 Girls’ Top 60 Senior Workout, assisted by IBCA-member coaches. IBCA-member coaches will also be conducting the Boys’ Top 60 Senior Workout led by on-court director Steve Lynch of Brownsburg. These workouts give the state’s outstanding seniors a chance to meet and compete as well as afford college coaches an opportunity to observe them against top-quality competition. While NOT a try-out for the Indiana All-Star team, these events afford Indiana All-Star game director Charlie Hall and his Indiana All-Star coaches, both boys and girls, the opportunity to observe the state’s best senior players against each other.
