Dayton Men’s Basketball announces Staff Changes

Two Promotions, One Addition and One Former Staff Member Returns

DAYTON – University of Dayton men’s basketball coach Anthony Grant has announced several staff changes:

 

·         Andy Farrell, formerly Director of Scouting & Program Development, is now Special Assistant to the Head Coach & Recruiting Coordinator

·         Brett Comer, formerly a Graduate Assistant, is now Director of Player Development

·         Khyle Marshall, officially named a Graduate Assistant

·         Casey Cathrall, named Strength & Conditioning Coach, replacing Ed Streit (who took a position with the Los Angeles Lakers)

 

“These personnel changes reflect steps forward for Dayton basketball and our coaching staff,” Grant said.  “Andy and Brett have been important to our program from Day One.  Kyhle brings a strong basketball experience to his GA position.  And we are very fortunate to be able to bring Casey back on board.  Ed had a great professional opportunity and we wish him well, but Casey’s return gives us continuity in our strength program.”

 

Farrell, a 2007 Dayton grad, has been with the program since Grant’s arrival in 2017.  Prior to returning to UD, he has been on the staffs at Southwest Mississippi Community College, Longwood, DePaul and VCU (under Grant).

 

Comer also joined the Flyer basketball program in 2017.  As a college player, he was the point guard on Florida Gulf Coast’s “Dunk City” Sweet Sixteen team.  He is ranked 24th all-time on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Division I career assists list, graduating in 2015.  A knee injury ended his professional career.

 

Marshall’s basketball journey also has him connected with Florida Gulf Coast.  He was FGCU’s video coordinator last season. A three-year starter at Butler who played on the Bulldogs’ Final Four team in 2011, Marshall played professionally for four seasons overseas from 2014-18.

 

Cathrall spent the 2018-19 season as the men’s basketball strength and conditioning coach for the University of Miami.  He was Grant’s first strength coach at UD.  Cathrall had previously served at Miami in the same capacity during the Hurricanes’ ACC championship season in 2012-13.  He returns to UD after his successor, Ed Streit, who returned to the NBA when he accepted a position with the Los Angeles Lakers.

 

Dayton was 21-12 and reached the NIT in Anthony Grant’s second season as the Dayton head coach. UD was third in the Atlantic 10 Conference with a 13-5 record.  Dayton was second in the nation as a team in field goal percentage (.504, 902 of 1789).  That was also the best single-season FG% in school history.

 

The Flyers return three starters and will add five veteran redshirts in 2019-20.   Included in the starters are All-Atlantic 10 performers Obi Toppin (2019 Rookie of the Year and First Team All-A-10), and junior guard Jalen Crutcher (Third Team All-A-10).  Also returning are 2018-19 co-captains Trey Landers and Ryan Mikesell.

Purdue Fort Wayne joining Horizon League in 2020-2021

 

 

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Purdue University Fort Wayne announced today that it will join the Horizon League and will begin competition during the 2020-2021 academic year. The Horizon League Board of Directors approved the university’s application for membership this week. Purdue Fort Wayne will officially join the League on July 1, 2020.

Officials from the university and the Horizon League made the joint announcement during a news conference held on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus this morning.

“We are excited to welcome Purdue Fort Wayne to the Horizon League family,” said Horizon League Commissioner Jon LeCrone. “The Mastodons align with the Horizon League’s mission, vision, and core values and is located in the middle of our geographic footprint. Their addition will bring competitive potential, especially in men’s basketball, and an engaged and vitalized community. Purdue Fort Wayne is the right school at the right time.”

“This is a wonderful day for our students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and fans,” said Purdue Fort Wayne Chancellor Ronald L. Elsenbaumer. “Our student-athletes and coaches are ready and eager to compete at the highest levels, and this move will provide incredible opportunities for them to shine. We are honored to join such an impressive group of universities in a league that is such a perfect fit for us.”

The Horizon League currently includes ten universities: Cleveland State University, University of Detroit Mercy, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Northern Kentucky University, Oakland University, University of Illinois at Chicago, Wright State University, and Youngstown State University. Purdue Fort Wayne is located at the center point of the League, an average of 170 miles from each member.

The Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons are now entering their second full season of play under the Purdue brand, which was adopted in July 2018 as part of the university’s realignment under the Purdue University system.

“A great league of great schools just got even stronger and more competitive,” said Purdue University President Mitch Daniels. “Purdue Fort Wayne will bring new fans, new visibility, and instant rivalries. It’s a good move for all concerned.”

The university’s move to the Horizon League becomes effective with the 2020-2021 academic year. The university will continue as a member of the Summit League for the current 2019-2020 academic year.

“I know our student-athletes, coaches, staff, and fans are bursting with pride and excitement as we begin the transition into a new League and new levels of competition,” said Kelley Hartley Hutton, Athletic Director at Purdue Fort Wayne. “We are incredibly grateful to our donors and friends who have provided financial support to help offset the costs of transitioning to a new athletics conference.”

Purdue Fort Wayne fields teams in 16 NCAA Division I sports and will sponsor 15 teams in the Horizon League: men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball. The men’s volleyball program will continue to compete in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association.

“We are pleased to welcome Purdue University Fort Wayne to the Horizon League family. It is clear that the vision, values, and mission of Purdue University Fort Wayne are clearly aligned with those we champion in the Horizon League,” said Mark Mone, Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Horizon League Chairman of the Board.

Miami Redhawks Men’s Basketball announces 2019-20 Non-Conference Schedule

OXFORD, Ohio – Miami University head men’s basketball coach Jack Owens announced the RedHawks’ non-conference schedule on Thursday. The 13-game slate features seven home games, along with contests among several teams that saw postseason action a season ago.

The season will open on Saturday, Nov. 9 when the RedHawks welcome Wright State to Millett Hall. The Raiders are coming off a co-Horizon League regular season championship and a spot in the NIT Tournament last season.

After a trip to Purdue Fort Wayne on Wednesday, Nov. 13, Miami has two straight home games, taking on Alabama A&M on Saturday, Nov. 16 and Central State on Wednesday, Nov. 20. The game against Central State will have a special noon start time.

The Bulldogs were co-Missouri Valley Conference regular season champions last season, finishing with a 24-10 record.

Non-conference play concludes with six games in December, four of which will be in the friendly confines of Millett Hall. On Tuesday, Dec. 3, local rival Northern Kentucky comes to Oxford. Like Wright State, Norse is also a defending Horizon League regular season champion and they earned a NCAA Tournament berth with a victory over the Raiders in the Horizon League Tournament Championship. In its NCAA Tournament First Round Game, NKU battled eventual National Runner-Up Texas Tech well into the second half before the Red Raiders were able to pull away with a 72-57 victory.

After a trip to Evansville on Saturday, Dec. 7, Miami hosts Mississippi Valley State on Sunday, Dec. 15. On Wednesday, Dec. 18, the ‘Hawks travel to Louisville, which is ranked in the top five in several preseason polls. The final two conference games take place at home against Bradley on Saturday, Dec. 21 and Wilberforce on Monday, Dec. 30. Bradley advanced to the NCAA Tournament last season after winning the MVC Tournament. The Braves held the lead against eventual Final Four team Michigan State in their first round match before dropping a tight, 76-65 decision.
