Men’s
Tom Herrion
Head Coach
Basketball
Head Coach Tom Herrion enters into his second season with the Thundering Herd basketball
program. Last year, Herrion racked up 22 wins, including six against RPI top 100 teams. Before
becoming the Herd’s head coach, Herrion was the head coach at the College of Charleston from
2002 to 2006. He then became the associate head coach at the University of Pittsburgh. Herrion
also has previously coached as an assistant at Providence College and the University of Virginia.
The head coach grabbed his 100th victory last year when the Herd beat SMU in February. Herrion
graduated from Merrimack College in 1989, where he lettered in both basketball and baseball.
DeAndre Kane
Justin Coleman
Class: RS Sophomore
Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pa.
High School: The Patterson
School
Height / Weight: 6-4 / 200
Position: G
Outlook: Kane stormed onto
the scene last season as the
C-USA Freshman of the Year.
This year, Kane was named to
the Preseason All Conference
USA First Team. Look for
the sophomore to try to beat
defenders off the dribble
from the point guard position.
He also is a strong defender,
leading the club with 32 steals
last season.
Class: Senior
Hometown: Charlotte, N.C.
High School: Hargrave
Military Academy
Height / Weight: 5-10 / 165
Position: G
Outlook: Pitts is the
undisputed leader of this year’s
team. Look for the senior to be
Herrion’s voice on the court.
Last year, he led the team
in scoring with more than
16 PPG. Pitts is also a smart
player with great court vision.
Although he will likely spend
most of his time at shooting
guard, he also can take over
the point and run the offense.
Class: RS Freshman
Hometown: Richmond, Va.
High School: Huntington
Prep
Height / Weight: 6-5 / 225
Position: G
Outlook: Highly touted out
of high school, Coleman sat
out last season because of
NCAA transfer regulations.
The freshman often will be
the most athletic player on the
court, with the ability to play
from the perimeter or the paint.
Look for Coleman to excite
the crowd often with his highflying, acrobatic slam dunks.
Class: Senior
Hometown: Santo Domingo, Dominican Rep.
High School: Charlotte HS
Height / Weight: 6-6 / 220
Position: F
Outlook: Last season, Pena
led the team with 54 threepointers. Look for the senior
to continue with the hot hand
from behind the arc. After
starting only 12 games last
season, Pena now will play a
more prominent role in the
offense. He should start most,
if not all, games –– should he
remain healthy.

Dago Pena
Herd opens regular season against Alabama State
BY JAKE SNYDER
THE PARTHENON
The time for talk has
passed. The exhibitions are
over. Herd basketball is here,
and this one counts.
The Herd takes on Alabama
State at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the
Cam Henderson Center.
Marshall comes into this
season sporting high expectations after a 22-win season
last year. The Herd went 9-7
in Conference USA games, but
are picked to finish second
this year behind Memphis.
“In the horse racing industry, everyone gets in the gate at
the same time,” Head Coach
Tom Herrion said. “The gates
are going to open up, and we
better come out flying.”
Marshall will attempt to do
so behind the three seniors,
Dago Pena, Shaquille Johnson
and Damier Pitts.
“It’s paramount that what
they’ve done is exhibit leadership and ownership, I think,
since last spring through the
summer when we got most of
the new guys here,” Herrion
said. “That was a big benefit
for us.”
Pitts, who led the team in
scoring last season, said the
hype cannot mean anything to
the players.
“We can’t really pay
attention to the newspapers
and the magazines,” Pitts
said. “The newspapers and
the magazines aren’t going to
win us any games when its
time to play. We just have to
stay humble, come to practice
every day and just take it from
there.”
The Herd opens up the season agaisnt Alabama State,
who is picked to win their
conference, the Southwestern
Athletic Conference.
This game marks the first
in a line of tough contests
for Marshall. The Herd also
will take on MAAC favorite
Iona and Atlantic Sun favorite Belmont, in addition to
three games against Big East
opponents.
“Our schedule is going to
test us mightily, right from the
start,” Herrion said.
The Hornets were just 1615 last season, but return five
seniors and four juniors to the
roster.
Leading the way for Alabama State is senior guard
Jeff Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks was one of only three
players to play in every game
for the Hornets last season.
The
Thundering
Herd
roster features several new
faces this year, including five
freshmen.
“It’s going to be a key part
page designed and edited by JAKE SNYDER | [email protected]
that everybody gets on the
same page when the season
comes,” Pitts said. “Everybody has to know their role,
and everybody has to play
hard.”
For the first time in recent
Herd basketball history, this
club is expected to finish near
the top of the Conference USA
standings.
“If you’re picked at the bottom, it means you don’t win
a lot,” Herrion said. “My record says I win a little bit, I
think. I like being at the top.
The view from the top is a lot
better.”
Herrion and his team will
have the chance to prove their
merit, beginning Friday. The
Herd will spend the months
of November and December
playing non-conference opponents before conference play
begins in early January.
When C-USA play begins,
the Herd will have two months
to prepare for the conference
tournament, which begins on
March 7.
“I want to make that NCAA
tournament,” Pitts said. “I
haven’t been to the tournament in my whole four years...
that would just put a cap on it
all.”

Business fraternity hosts nonprofit fair
BY KELLY STARKEY
THE PARTHENON
Marshall
University’s
Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity hosted a nonprofit fair
Thursday in the Memorial
Student Center lobby.
“Different nonprofits were
here, and students had the opportunities for part-time jobs
or internships and volunteers
positions,” said Sharafina
Azman Al-Rashid, president
for Delta Sigma Pi.
Vanessa Leithoff, vice
president of Chapter Operations, Professional Activities
and Alumni Relations for
Delta Sigma Pi, said that it
is important for students
to attend events like the
no profit fair, because students can put it on their
resume. It also is important
for students to work with
As students we should strive
to be well rounded.”
> SHARAFINA AZMAN
AL-RASHID
the nonprofit organizations
within Huntington because
they are always looking for
volunteers.
“Nonprofits are always
giving internships, and they
always need help,” Leithoff
said. “I think having people
come and promote the organization is important, and
it gives students a lot of opportunities as well as the
organization.”
Thirteen nonprofit organizations attended the fair.
“We had American Red
Cross, Healing Place of
Huntington, Hospice of
Huntington, Mountain State
Center for Learning, Dress
for Success, Big Brothers
Big Sisters, The Girl Scouts,
Contact Huntington and several other nonprofits located
in Huntington,” Leithoff
said.
“As students we should
strive to be more well
rounded,” Al-Rashid said.
“And with these organizations that were here, they are
all great organizations, and
it will be a good experience
for students to give back to
the community. People think
that you don’t learn much
from volunteer activities, but
in all actuality it is a great
resume booster and students learn how to be more
organized.”
Rashawna Smilley, program coordinator of Big
Brothers Big Sisters of the
Tri-State area said, “We
usually come to the fair in
September, and last time, we
got a lot of volunteers from
the last fair... We were happy
to come back in and get some
more volunteers.”
Josh Webb, community
based case management
for Big Brothers Big Sisters,
said, “I think the event is
great, and I think everyone
should volunteer. It benefits
the volunteer, and it helps
them grow.”

Herd football going for back-to-back wins
BY ADAM ROGERS
THE PARTHENON
Marshall football returns
to the gridiron Saturday afternoon for the first time
since Oct. 29 and will attempt to win back-to-back
games.
The Thundering Herd (45, 3-2) was one of 21 teams
in the NCAA FBS to play for
nine straight weeks.
Senior linebacker Tyson
Gale said the bye week was
a much needed break.
“It felt good to finally
take a deep breath for the
first time since the season
started,” Gale said. “It was
a chance for us to refocus
and regain our energy. We
got some guys healed up and
rested.”
Two weeks ago, when the
University of
AlabamaBirmingham traveled to
Huntington to take on Marshall, the Herd put together
a complete game that culminated in a 59-14 win over the
Blazers.
Saturday’s opponent for
the Herd will be the University of Tulsa Golden
Hurricane, who’s only losses
on the season have come
against No. 2 Oklahoma
State, No. 5 Boise State and
No. 6 Oklahoma.
Gale and Delvin Johnson,
a redshirt senior defensive
lineman, said not just one
guy on the Tulsa offense
makes or breaks the Golden
Hurricane.
“There are a lot of guys
that play well together,”
Gale said. “Their quarterback, multiple running
backs and receivers are all
good players. They don’t
have a superstar, but they
have a lot of guys who are
pretty good and they’re really good when they play
together.”
“They play well as 11
guys,” Johnson said. “There
are not a lot of individuals
out there. They just play as
a whole team. I think that’s
why they’re so successful
right now.”
Tulsa has a balanced offensive attack, averaging
246.7 yards passing and 190.4
yards rushing per game.
The Golden Hurricane
offense is led by senior
quarterback G.J. Kinne, who
averages 267.4 yards of total
offense.
Gale said Kinne can make
plays at any given moment
for the Tulsa offense.
“He’s just a great player
who can throw the ball well
and is probably the most
effective guy we’re going
to face this year at running
the football,” Gale said. “He
gives us two dimensions,
which is difficult to prepare
for, but its something we’ve
faced all year.”
Marshall
head
coach
Doc Holliday said the Herd
must tackle well against
the Golden Hurricane to be
successful.
“We’re going to have to
get hats on them,” Holliday
said. “One of things you
have to do to do that is make
sure you’re swarming to the
ball.”
Saturday’s game kicks off
in Tulsa at noon and will be
the second midday kickoff
for the Thundering Herd.
The first noon kickoff for
Marshall this year ended
in the 59-14 dismantling of
UAB.

Alpha Phi Omega collects
donations for a good cause
BY BRITTINI BROOKS
THE PARTHENON
Pledges of Alpha Phi
Omega help provide a better Christmas for children in
need.
The 2011 pledges of Alpha
Phi Omega took donations
Thursday for Operation
Christmas Child.
Operation
Christmas
Child is a project ran by Samaritan’s Purse. Samaritan’s
Purse is a nondenominational, evangelical Christian
organization. They help people who are victims of war,
poverty, natural disasters,
disease and famine.
“Operation Christmas Child
collects donated shoeboxes
with basic necessities,”said
Joshua Wimmer, Alpha Phi
Omega pledge.
People can also put the donated items in plastic storage
containers.
“Our goal is to make at
least 50 boxes,” said Katlyn
Chuchiak, Alpha Phi Omega
pledge.
“ The items are sent to
Eastern Europe, Africa and
parts of the United States,”
Wimmer said. “The items
are sent places that have
experienced war and economic downturns,” he said.
“It is our duty to share what
we have in hopes to equalize
distribution,” Wimmer said.
So far the pledges have
made approximatly $30 in
donations on campus and
400 items were donated from
Chuchiak’s hometown of
Moundsville.
Each pledge is making two
boxes with items in them to
donate in addition to what
they have already received.
Items that can be donated
to Christmas for children include toys, school supplies
and hygiene items. Other
items include hard candy,
lollipops, hair clips and
socks.
Items that can’t be donated include damaged
items, war-related items
or toys, chocolate, liquids
or lotions, aerosol cans or
breakable items.

make a donation but missed
their opportunity, can go the

New York Bagel to close
BY AMANDA FASTUCA
THE PARTHENON
A fairly new bagel shop
in Huntington has been
shut down due to lack of
business.
The managers of New
York Bagel Cafe’ & Deli
are officially closing their
doors today.
NY Bagel, on Fourth
Ave, was open for approximately seven months until
the managers decided they
weren’t getting the business they needed to keep
the shop open.
“We just weren’t getting
that large amount of people and we weren’t making
enough money,” said Pam
Jones, store manager of
NY Bagel. “Our average
sale was only $3 for a bagel
and coffee. We just needed
longer lines, more publicity and more people flow.”
Jones said the store is
officially closing after
selling coffee Fiday.
“I
had
originally
planned to close the shop
next week,” Jones said.
“But somehow a rumor
got out on Facebook saying that it was closing
today. So the rumor just
escalated from there. We
actually sold out of food
this week from all the
last minute business we
received. However, I will
still be here all morning
selling coffee, but I will
close the shop today, simply because I have nothing
left to sell.”
Jones said that if NY
Bagel had the kind of business they had in the last
two days, the shop would
still be open. She said the
NY Bagel staff is sad to
see the business close.
“Personally, I have enjoyed working here and
I loved the people that
came in,” Jones said. “I’ve
dedicated myself to this
place, and I enjoyed the
company we received every morning. The people
were really great. We had
regulars such as teachers, students, the soccer
teams,
the
basketball
teams, the golf team,
medical students and people who were just on their
way to work, swinging by
the shop to grab a bite for
breakfast. It really has
been a pleasure working
here.”

Entering into his 11th season at the helm for the Thundering Herd, Head Coach Royce Chadwick
is on the verge of gaining a few milestone victories. The head coach currently has 145 wins at
Marshall and 546, including 358 in Div. I, overall. Chadwick will be looking to improve on a
mere nine victories last season. Chadwick is entering his 27th year as a coach. Before coming
to Marshall, Chadwick recorded stints at Panhandle St., Sam Houston St., Howard JUCO and
Stephen F. Austin. At SFA, he led his club to seven-straight NCAA Tournament appearances.
Chadwick graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma St. in 1980.

Regular season kicks off against Kent State
BY BRANDON ANICICH
THE PARTHENON
Marshall
University’s
women’s basketball program will open up the
regular season in the Cam
Henderson Center on Friday, hosting Kent State for
a non-conference matchup.
The Thundering Herd
is coming off of a solid
pre-season
performance,
winning both of its exhibition games against Salem
International and Bluefield
State.
Both pre-season exhibition wins were blowouts for
Marshall, as the Herd trampled Salem International
83-37 before dismantling
Bluefield State 96-36.
Kent State looks to be
a different story. Former
Mid-American Conference
opponents from 1997 until
2005 when Marshall joined
up with Conference USA,
Marshall has won five of
the last eight showdowns
against Kent State –– however the Golden Flashes hold
the most recent bragging

rights, dropping the Herd
79-55 at Kent State’s home
opener last season.
“It’s nice to start another
season,” Marshall Head
Coach Royce Chadwick
said during Media Day earlier this fall, previewing a
younger, healthier roster
than the injury plagued
line-up of 2010-2011. “We
are very excited about this
year,”
“We are extremely competitive in practice right
now,” Chadwick said. “I
remember last year looking down the bench and we
couldn’t press because we
only had six or seven players available and healthy
to play. We had some red
shirts who were sitting out
who have [become] our
starters this year. They
know our system, they are
young, energetic and they
are making a difference on
the basketball court.”
Chadwick spoke in reference of red-shirt junior
guard Shynisha Johnson,
sophomore forward Suporia Dickens and red-shirt
sophomore guard Erica
Woods – three jerseys Herd
hoops fans can get used to
seeing on the court this
season.

the Herd include senior
guards Lateidra Elliott and
Rashedah Henriques, who
are both in good shape following knee surgery in the
off-season.
Another key guard donning
Thundering
Herd
colors in her senior season
is Alaya Mitchell.
“Mitchell has been our
main stay,” Chadwick said.
“She was there every single
day last year, and she’s been
here every single day this
fall.”
Historically,
Marshall
matches up with Kent State
fairly well. While the Golden
Flashes have the overall series advantage, winning 16
out of the 22 total meetings
between the teams – five of
Marshall’s six victories over
Kent State came during
current Golden Flash head
coach Bob Lindsay’s tenure.
Victoria Wells expressed
excitement looking forward
to the game Friday.
“We’re excited,” Wells
said. “We’re ready to start
the season off right –– this
is what we’ve been working
for.”
