Kevin Murphy of Tennessee Tech became the first player in NCAA Division I this season to hit the 50-point mark in a game.

Murphy set a Tennessee Tech single-game scoring record with 50 points in an Ohio Valley Conference contest as the Golden Eagles beat the Southern Illinois-Edwardsville Cougars in Cookeville, Tennessee, 98-80 on Monday night.

Murphy broke the previous record of 38 points by John Best by making 16 of 21 from the field, 6 of 9 from 3-point land and 12 of 14 from the free-throw line.

The Golden Eagles are 14-9, 6-4 OVC and had a good night shooting from the floor with 55 percent.

The Cougars dropped to 5-14, 3-7 OVC and have now lost six games in a row.

SIU-Edwardsville were led in scoring by Jerome Jones with 25 points and Mark Yelovich with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Jeff Lebo hired to rebuild East Carolina University basketball program

compiled from staff and wire reports

Jeff Lebo introduced at East Carolina (ECU)

Recently fired Auburn head basketball coach Jeff Lebo didn’t waste any time getting another head job. He was introduced Tuesday as the new head men’s basketball coach at East Carolina University. Located in Greenville, the Pirates have had a struggling program for years.

The school decided on Lebo to replace Mack McCarthy, who spent three seasons on the sideline for the Pirates before resigning to take a fundraising job in the school’s athletics department. Lebo spent the last six seasons at Auburn, going 96-93 overall before he was fired earlier in March.

The 43-year-old Lebo played at North Carolina under the legendary Dean Smith in the late 80′s and had coached at Tennessee Tech and Chattanooga before Auburn.  He is a very popular figure in the state of North Carolina.

Lebo inherits a difficult job at East Carolina, a Conference USA school located in the shadows of instate Atlantic Coast Conference programs Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State. The program hasn’t been to the NCAA tournament since making a surprise run to win the Colonial Athletic Association tournament in 1993 and hasn’t had a winning record since 1996-97. In the years since, East Carolina has reached .500 once and compiled a 141-230 record.

Lebo had a strong start to his head coaching career, taking over Tennessee Tech program in 1998 that was coming off four straight losing seasons. Two years later, Tennessee Tech had its first 20-win season in a half-century, then won 27 games and reached the NIT in 2002.

Lebo then was hired at Chattanooga and won 40 games in two seasons before taking over at Auburn for the 2004-05 season. However, Lebo discovered that the Southeastern Conference was tougher to coach and recruit in than any league he’d been associated with. He went 35-61 at Auburn in SEC play while the team’s 2009 NIT appearance was his only postseason trip there.

NCAA Notes: College Basketball

compiled from staff and wire reports

Ohio Valley Conference (ovc)

The Ohio Valley Conference will be changing the format of its tournament next season. All eight teams that qualify for the tournament will compete in Nashville. First-round games currently are played on campus sites with the semifinals and finals moving to Nashville.

The Ohio Valley Conference includes: Tennessee-Martin, Murray State, Austin Peay, Morehead State, Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee State, Eastern Illinois, Tennessee Tech, Jacksonville State and Southeast Missouri State.

Nebraska Cornhuskers (un)

Despite fan, alumni and media outcry, Nebraska seems to be sticking with men’s basketball coach Doc Sadler, eventhough the team is in last place of the Big 12 Conference. This is Sadler’s fourth season as coach.

Associate Athletic Director Marc Boehm, who is in charge of men’s and women’s basketball, says that Sadler’s job is safe for now.

The Huskers (14-17, 2-14 Big 12) are having their worst conference season since 1962-63. Last season, Nebraska won 18 games and finished eighth in the Big 12 with an 8-8 record.

Sadler’s contract pays him a base salary of $800,000 a year and runs through the 2013-2014 season.
