Nicholls State Colonels forward Trevon Lewis was named the Southland Conference Freshman of the Year after leading the team in scoring, averaging 13.1 points per game.

That total was the best among conference freshman and ranked 10th overall in the Southland.

He was ranked eighth overall in the league in field goal percentage, connecting on 50.4 percent of his shots from the floor. In league play, the Houma, Louisiana native was fourth in field goal accuracy, shooting 55.4 percent.

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound forward had four double-doubles to his resume this season in games against Auburn, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-Arlington and Texas State.

Lewis finished the season with three 20-point games, including a season-high 25 points in a victory over Louisiana-Monroe in December.

Lewis is the fourth Nicholls basketball player to earn freshman of the year honors and the first since Fred Hunter in 2009.

Meyer names Tom Herman as offensive coordinator/QB’s coach

Tom Herman, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Iowa State University the past three years, and before that the same position for record-setting offenses at Rice University, has been named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State by new head coach Urban Meyer.

Herman’s 2011 Iowa State offense, which he will coach on December 30 in the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers at Yankee Stadium, averages 181.2 rushing yards and 211.7 passing yards per game. The Cyclones put up 44 points in a triple-overtime win over Iowa and accumulated 37 in a double-overtime upset of then-undefeated and then-#2 Oklahoma State.

“To work with and for Coach Meyer is an exciting opportunity for me,” Herman said. “i am really looking forward to working with him and learning his offensive systems. And to be able to coach with him at The Ohio State University is simply a dream come true.”

Herman was born in Cincinnati and still has family there, although he was raised in Simi Valley, California. He played collegiately at California Lutheran, graduating in 1997 with a degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Texas.

Herman has 11 years of experience as a college coach, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, and 13 when his two seasons, 1999-2000, as a graduate assistant at Texas are included. He coached four years at Sam Houston State (2001-04), serving as receivers coach and special teams coordinator. He also spent two years at Texas State (2005-06) and two years at Rice (2007-08) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

While his Texas State offenses led the Southland Conference in total offense each season, his stint at Rice was really notable. His offenses broke over 40 school records and in his second season the Owls won 10 games and went to a bowl for the first time since 1954.

Furthermore, Rice ranked in the Top 10 nationally in 2008 in passing offense (5th; 327.8), scoring offense (T8th; 41.6) and total offense (10th; 472.3). Two Rice receivers had more than 1,300 yards receiving that year, tight end James Casey had 111 catches and quarterback Chase Clement was the Conference USA MVP.

Herman and his wife, Michelle, have a daughter, Priya, and a son, Maddock.

WAC welcomes Texas-Arlington as 10th member

The Western Athletic Conference has a new member from the Dallas area.

The conference lost Texas Christian University of Ft. Worth and Southern Methodist University from Dallas a few years ago, but now has added UTA which is from the southern part of the city, Arlington.

WAC officials have been interested in UTA for awhile and both parties clicked from the beginning and the board of regents for the University of Texas system voted to accept the invitation to join.

After the upcoming 2011-2012 season, the WAC will be losing Fresno State, Hawaii and Nevada. But for the 2012-2013 season, the WAC will see its membership go back to ten with the additions of Seattle, Denver, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio and UTA.

Texas-Arlington will be jumping from the Southland Conference and has been looking to improve the school’s image by going to a bigger conference.

Only seven of the 10 WAC schools have football teams and UTA does not. The school is looking into possibly adding a football program. It could play its games in the new Cowboys Stadium which sits very close to its campus. The Mavericks shut down their football program in 1985.

The Western Athletic Conference will adding a Texas flavor to their lineup to offset the loss of Boise State.

The WAC announced that it has added Texas-San Antonio and Texas State to their football lineup that will lose the Boise State Broncos next year and Fresno State and Nevada in 2012.

The two Texas schools and Denver, which doesn’t have football, will join the WAC in 2012. The current expansion plan gives the WAC eight football members.

Texas-San Antonio is starting a football program that will begin play next year under former University of Miami coach Larry Coker.

There had been reports that Montana would join the WAC. But school officials decided to stay in the Big Sky Conference and the Football Championship Series instead of moving up and joining the WAC.
