The VCU
RAMS
After putting together one of the most historic runs in
NCAA Tournament history last March, the Black & Gold
are reloaded and ready to continue to brand VCU as one
of the top mid-major programs in the country.
Leading the Rams for the third straight year will be
Head Coach Shaka Smart, who inked an eight-year extension after the run to the 2011 Final Four. Smart led VCU
to 55 wins in his first two seasons, the most over any twoyear span in school history.
Smart will be guiding a very talented, but very young
group with a combined 12 years of college basketball experience. In terms of college basketball experience, the Black
& Gold are the 10th youngest team in the country.
A vital part of the success will rely on the lone senior
on this year’s roster, Bradford Burgess, who was named to
the Preseason All-CAA squad by the coaches and media.
Burgess, who was selected as the Preseason CAA Player of
the Year by Sporting News, averaged 14.3 points last season, while he also finished in the CAA’s top 10 in field goal,
free throw and 3-point shooting percentage.
During the Rams unforgettable run to the Final Four,
Burgess was named to the Southwest Region All-

rebounds and nearly two blocked shots during the six
NCAA Tournament games.
The Midlothian, Va. native has started every game
since arriving at VCU in 2008, entering this season with a
streak of 110 consecutive starts, the second-longest streak
in school history.
Burgess will be leaning on many of his younger teammates ability to step into new roles, including junior point
guard Darius Theus, who takes over after the graduation of
two-year starter Joey Rodriguez.
Theus, a Portsmouth, Va. native, averaged just over 15
minutes per game last year, posting an assist-to-turnover
ratio over 1.5 for the Black & Gold. The 6-3 guard will
bring a different look to the Rams this year with an innate
ability to get into the lane and create plays for his teammates. He is an ideal fit on the defensive end for Coach
Smart’s HAVOC system, racking up 81 steals over his first
two seasons.
Fellow junior Troy Daniels had a big offseason and will

successful mid-major programs in the nation during his
tenure. In 18 years of head coaching experience, Lonergan
owns an overall record of 377-156, with 15 winning seasons and 13 NCAA Tournament victories, including a
NCAA Division III National Championship at Catholic
University, his alma mater, in 2001.
“I have always talked about this job [at GW], if it
ever came open, that it is the perfect fit for me,” said Coach
Lonergan.
Hired in May, he takes over a program that returns
six of its top seven scorers from last season. However, GW
failed to advance past the first round of the A-10
Championship for a fourth straight season and was picked
to finish eighth in the conference in 2011-12, both facts
that will serve a purpose during his first season at the helm.
“is is great motivation for us,” said Coach
Lonergan. “Preseason predictors are looking at we lost in
the first round the last four years, but they’re not looking
at we tied for fourth in the conference. We’re saying we
have one of the stronger backcourts and some experience
back.”
While excited for the coming campaign, Coach
Lonergan realizes there will be an adjustment period as
ere’s a new feeling in the air as the George
Washington men’s basketball team takes the court for the
2011-12 season. A new head coach, coaching staff and
athletic director, a revamped schedule and a polished and
transformed Charles E. Smith Center are the key changes
that have provided a renewed sense of excitement in Foggy
Bottom and amongst Colonials’ supporters.
Along with all the changes, there’s plenty of familiarity back at GW as well with four starters and 10 letterwinners returning to a team that won 17 games and tied for
fourth in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
It’s with this experienced roster that first-year head
coach Mike Lonergan looks to chart the Colonials on a
new course directed toward postseason success and
enhanced support behind the men’s basketball program.
“We have to win games and play an exciting brand
of basketball,” said Coach Lonergan. “It’s based on the
product you put on the court. We have a nice core group
of players returning, and if they play hard and play exciting, they will gain the respect of the fans so they will come
out and support us.”
Lonergan, a Bowie, Md., native, returns to his roots
after six seasons as head coach at Vermont, one of the most

players work with his new coaching staff and learn a new
system. “e goal is more to improve and be a lot better
in March than the start of practice Oct. 14. If we can stay
healthy, hopefully we will have a good season.”
Anchoring the Colonials’ returners and strong backcourt is 6-foot-1 senior point guard Tony Taylor, the
team’s Most Valuable Player who led the Colonials in scoring, assists and steals last season. Taylor ranked 12th in the
A-10 in scoring at 15.0 points per game and finished third
in the league with 4.6 assists per game to earn Second
Team All-Atlantic 10 honors. He enters his final season
just 60 points shy of becoming the 43rd member of GW’s
1,000-point club.
Despite the success and accolades, one outlet has
pegged Taylor the league’s most underrated player, a label
Coach Lonergan envisions his floor general shedding this
season. “It is strange to see a senior as underrated. I told
him it is time for him to not be underrated anymore, but
to be a First Team All-Conference player.” e league’s
head coaches sided with Coach Lonergan by bestowing
First Team All-Atlantic 10 honors on Taylor prior to the
start of the 2011-12 season.
Another key player should be 6-foot-5 junior shooting guard Lasan Kromah, who missed last season with a
AND

foot injury. As a freshman, Kromah averaged 11.8 points
per game and converted a team-high 48 three-pointers, to
make the 2010 A-10 All Rookie Team.
Taylor and Kromah should give the Colonials a
strong backcourt, Coach Lonergan said, with shooting
guards Aaron Ware and Bryan Bynes as key reserves.
Ware, a 6-foot-5 senior, averaged 5.4 points and 3.8
rebounds per game last season, while Bynes, a 6-foot-3
junior, averaged 6.1 points.
Anchoring the frontcourt are forwards Dwayne
Smith, a 6-foot-6 junior, and Nemanja Mikic, a 6-foot-8
sophomore. Last season, Smith was second on the team in
scoring, with 9.3 points per game, and rebounding, with
5.1 rebounds per game. Mikic was GW’s best three-point
shooter at 43.6 percent from three-point range. In reserve
at forward is David Pellom, a 6-foot-8 junior who led the
Colonials in rebounding with 5.2 rebounds per game and
averaged 6.7 points per game.
One question mark is center, which is wide open,
according to Coach Lonergan. Last season’s starter, Jabari
Edwards, played 16 games due to knee problems. Coach
Lonergan said the 6-foot-10, fifth-year senior has a lot of
athleticism but is concerned about his durability. is
could lead to some opportunities for freshmen John
Kopriva and Jonathan Davis. Kopriva, 6-foot-8 power forward from Wauwatosa, Wis., averaged 14 points and 6
rebounds while shooting 58 percent as a senior last season
at Milwaukee’s Marquette University High School. Davis
is a 6-foot-7 forward from Simi Valley, Calif., who averaged 18.7 points and10.4 rebounds on 53 percent shooting as a senior at Simi Valley High School, including one
40-point game.

The Notre Dame
FIGHTING
IRISH
Notre Dame’s record-setting 27-7 campaign in 2010-11
may be a distant memory, but to those returning, the feeling
of disappointment following a third-round exit still remains
strong as the Irish are set to usher in the 107th season in program history.
Beginning his 12th season along the sidelines, Mike Brey
will rely on a heavy dose of patience early on as he adjusts his
lineups and rotations. Known as a coach who gets the most
out of his players, one of Brey’s hallmarks always has been
player development.
The loss of three starters will certainly test his patience
early on as Notre Dame looks to build a nucleus and foundation that it hopes will earn the Irish a sixth consecutive 20win campaign and third straight NCAA tournament berth.
Following the graduation of Ben Hansbrough (2011
BIG EAST Coach of the Year and an NCAA second team
consensus All-American), Tyrone Nash (two-year starter and
second-leading rebounder) and Carleton Scott (leading
rebounder), the Irish will count greatly on the experience
and leadership of fifth-year senior forwards Tim Abromaitis
and Scott Martin. The duo, who will serve as co-captains
this season, were certainly keys to Notre Dame’s success a
year ago.
With so many experienced players a year ago, we were
nearly a finished product before the season began. This year
is different, and because of our youth, the players we have to
work with and the potential that we have for improvement
throughout the entire season will motivate me. I also am
anxious to watch Tim and Scott lead this team as they are
clearly our commanders both on the court and in the locker room.”
Notre Dame has enjoyed tremendous success and consistency throughout the past four basketball campaigns.
Since the 2007-08 season, Irish teams have posted a 96-42
mark for a .696 winning percentage. The 96 wins represent
the most in program history over a four-year span. In addition, Brey has guided his squads to the most BIG EAST regular-season victories (46) in school history as the Irish have
posted a 46-26 (.639) record.
With Abromaitis and Martin there will be plenty of
competition for the remaining three starting positions on the
floor and for playing time off the bench.
Look for junior forward Jack Cooley and sophomore
point guard Eric Atkins to have firm grasps on the two other
starting positions. Atkins saw action in all 34 contests while
averaging 25.4 minutes a game a year ago as a backup to
Hansbrough, while Cooley also played in every game and
averaged 10.3 minutes per contest.
Beyond those four, the final starting spot will certainly
be up for grabs as will significant playing minutes.

Brey will rely heavily
on Abromaitis’ leadership and confidence this
season.
Last season, he averaged 15.4 ppg. and
grabbed a career-high 6.1
rebounds. He became
the 51st player in Notre
Dame history to reach
the 1,000-point mark
and has scored more
than 1,000 points over
the past two seasons.
A third-team allBIG EAST selection year ago, and preseason first-team allBIG EAST pick to start the ’11-’12 campaign, he connected on 47.0 percent of his shots during his career and 42.2
percent from three-point range.
Martin really emerged as a key player for the Irish
throughout the second half of the season a year ago. After
transferring to Notre Dame in June of 2008, he sat out the
2008-09 campaign and then missed the 2009-10 season
after suffering a torn ACL in October of ’09. He really found
his stride toward the end of January and carried that
momentum during the final two months of the season.
Martin averaged 9.7 points and 4.8 rebounds and displayed
a versatility in his game with his ability to score from nearly
anywhere on the court.
Cooley will look to emerge as a force on the frontline.
Playing a backup role in his first two seasons, he is primed to
make a big jump in his junior year.
One of the team’s most physical players, he is as strong
as any Irish player around the basket. With the loss of Tyrone
Nash and Carleton Scott, Notre Dame is going to need
Cooley to assert himself around the boards as both a
rebounder and scorer.
Cooley averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds a year ago,
but look for those averages to jump during the upcoming
season as he looks to spend longer stretches of time on the
court.
Mike Broghammer’s playing time was limited in the second half of the year as he battled knee injuries and surgery.
In two seasons, he has played in 23 contests overall and averaged 1.8 points and 1.0 rebounds. Broghammer can take up

space inside with his body and if he stays
healthy, will see playing time and be someone Brey and his staff can count on coming
off the bench.
After sitting out his freshman season in
2009-10, Tom Knight saw action in 14
games and averaged 1.4 points during his
sophomore campaign. His all-around skills
could make him a very effective player in
the lineup this season.
Atkins will begin his second season with the Irish program as Notre Dame’s floor general. Atkins, who played in
all 34 games and earned six starts during his freshman season, averaged 5.8 points and 3.2 assists and led the BIG
EAST Conference in assist-to-turnover ratio. Brey will look
to Atkins to play heavy minutes this season as the lone true
point guard on the Irish roster.
One of the team’s best defenders and screeners, Joey
Brooks is looking to become a big part of Notre Dame’s rotation as he begins his third year in the program.
Brooks has a good offensive game, but it will be his
defensive game that will be his greatest strength during the
upcoming season.
No player may show more improvement and upside this
season than Alex Dragicevich. He has great versatility in his
game both as a shooter and in his ability to handle the basketball. Dragicevich could see time at point guard when Eric
Atkins is not on the floor.
Jerian Grant did not play in his freshman season, giving
him a year to learn Mike Brey’s system. Grant battled a stress
fracture last year, but he heads into the season at 100 percent.
He and Atkins could be Notre Dame’s starting backcourt to
start the season.
Pat Connaughton, the lone freshman on the Irish roster,
is going to see playing time immediately and will be on the
court for Notre Dame for extended minutes.
He brings a toughness and edge to the Irish and knows
how to play the game at both ends of the floor. Mike Brey
expects him to be an outstanding addition this season.
The Maryland
TERRAPINS
The fist pump may be gone, but the passion and intensity will be familiar. One of the nation’s best young coaches
in Mark Turgeon takes over a Maryland basketball program
steeped in tradition and looking to move toward a bright
future.
The accolades upon Turgeon’s arrival were broad and
convincing. The job of being the coach who follows the
now-retired Gary Williams falls on talented shoulders.
Turgeon’s first Terrapin team will feature a veteran backcourt and a group that is preparing for the upcoming season
with a heightened focus.
“I think our strength right now is our chemistry and
togetherness,” said Turgeon. “Guys are kind of practicing
with a chip on their shoulder. Everybody is telling them how
bad they’re going to be. We’ve had great workouts so far. It’s
early, but they’ve been really determined and they’re all on
the same page.
“I’ve been surprised across the board. I think each player individually is a little better than I was anticipating. I’ve
seen great work habits. James Padgett has been a real pleasant surprise, and so has Berend Weijs.”
Turgeon said the level of play most players see prior to
college helps prepare them.

“The inexperience doesn’t bother me,” he said. “Kids are
kids – they grow up playing at high levels in AAU ball and
high-school ball. Kids are so advanced today. Every player
who’s on our roster right now, whether he’s a senior or freshman, is ready to help us.”
Sean Mosley is Maryland’s lone fourth-year player and
Turgeon said he’s ready to assume the leadership role that
comes with being the experienced guy.
“Sean has been a great leader,” said Turgeon. “You can
tell it’s definitely his team. He wants it to be his team. I think
Sean is going to have a terrific year… He’s really playing with
a lot of confidence right now.”
Mosley is second among returnees in the Atlantic Coast
Conference with 76 career starts. Already with 117 career
steals, Mosley could finish the season among the Terps’ alltime leaders in that category.
The other returning starter is guard Terrell Stoglin. A
member of the ACC All-Freshman Team a year ago, Stoglin
averaged 11.4 points per game last season and hit .359 from
3-point range. He earned back-to-back ACC Rookie of the
Week honors during a stretch in which he scored 20 points
or more in four of five games in February.
“Terrell can flat-out score,” said Turgeon. “I’m going to
