Billy Kennedy Receives Contract Extension at Texas A&M

Texas A&M and rewarded head coach Billy Kennedy with a two-year contract extension.

Kennedy previously coached at Murray State University.

Here is a release from A&M:

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents Wednesday authorized Texas A&M University Interim President Mark A. Hussey to negotiate and execute a two-year extension to the contract of men’s basketball head coach Billy Kennedy, as proposed by Director of Athletics Eric Hyman.

“Coach Kennedy understands our commitment to building champions both in the classroom and in competition,” Hyman said. “Our basketball program has made tremendous strides academically under Billy’s leadership, while he has also raised the overall on-court talent level of our student-athletes. Our ultimate goal is to build the Texas A&M basketball program the right way, with a foundation for sustained postseason success.”

Kennedy enters his fourth season at Texas A&M, coming off an 18-16 campaign in 2013-14 in which the Aggies participated in the College Basketball Invitational tournament. Over his last 10 years as a head coach, Kennedy’s teams have averaged more than 20 wins per season, earned four conference titles and made four trips to the postseason -- two to the NCAA Tournament and one in the NIT.

“I want to thank Eric Hyman, the university, and the Board for recognizing that we are on the verge of building something special here at A&M,” Kennedy said. “Exciting times are coming for Aggie Basketball. I can't wait for the season.”

Murray State Men's Basketball Schedule for 2014-15

Murray State University released their 2014-15 men's basketball schedule last week.

Here is a release from MSU:

Murray State Men's Basketball released its 2014-15 schedule featuring 15 games at the CFSB Center, including clashes with Houston, Western Kentucky and Illinois State. The Racers will also be part of the inaugural Challenge in Music City in Nashville on Thanksgiving weekend.

"We've put together a challenging non-conference schedule that will prepare us for the rigors of league play," MSU Head Coach Steve Prohm said. "To go along with a great home schedule, we have road games that are in close proximity, so our great fan base will be able to support us."

Prohm added, "We bring back some very good pieces from a team that finished last season strong. We will look to those returners to provide us leadership. Our main goal is to get better each and every day as we prepare to put ourselves in a position to win a conference championship."

After a home exhibition game with Freed-Hardeman (Nov. 6), the Racers open the season at home (Nov. 14) against Houston. The Racers and Cougars meet for the first time since 1955 and it marks the first time MSU has faced a team from the American Athletic Conference. The Racers have won every home opener since 1989, a string of 24-straight, and are 16-0 in home openers in the CFSB Center.

MSU's first road contest is at Middle Tennessee (Nov. 18) as the Racers meet the Blue Raiders for the 136th time. After a home contest against Brescia (Nov. 20), the Racers hit the road for a game in Cincinnati against Xavier (Nov. 24). MSU hasn't met Xavier since 1955 and faces a Big East team for the first time since beating St. John's in 2012.

The Racers are part of the Challenge in Music City when they play three games in three days (Nov. 28-30) against Valparaiso, Drake and Portland. The Racers meet Valpo for a third straight season, but haven't played Drake since 1938 and Portland since 1984. The event uses a round robin format in which each team plays three games at Municipal Auditorium. The Racers will get to play on the floor where the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament will be played in March.

"The opportunity to play in the Challenge in Music City is one that we're pleased about," Prohm said. "We really need our fans to come down to Nashville and make this a home court advantage for us."

D1 Prospect Anthony Eaves Transfers to Ballard High School

Anthony Eaves, one of the top high school players in North Carolina, has transferred to Ballard High School.



Eaves, a 6-foot-1 senior guard, is the son of former Louisville star Jerry Eaves.

Here is more from Frakes' article:

Bruins coach Chris Renner confirmed Tuesday that Anthony Eaves — a 6-foot-1 senior guard — has transferred into the program. Eaves is the son of Jerry Eaves, a Ballard grad who was the point guard on the University of Louisville’s 1980 championship team and most recently was the head coach at North Carolina A&T.

“Jerry is moving back to Louisville and doing some radio stuff and is in the Ballard district,” Renner said.

Anthony Eaves averaged 16.2 points per game at Greensboro (N.C.) Page High School last season and shot 46.5 percent (81 of 174) from 3-point range. Renner said Eaves is being recruited by Morehead State, Tennessee Tech, Ball State and Washington State.

“He’ll end up signing with a Division I school,” Renner said. “He’s a combo guard who can play both the point and the two.”

Bellarmine Adds Hartford Transfer Yasin Kolo, Loses Donnie Hale

Bellarmine University has landed Yasin Kolo, a 6-foot-10 transfer from University of Hartford.

Kolo also previously played at East Carolina University.

Here is a release from BU:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Bellarmine University Head Basketball Coach Scott Davenport announced today that junior Yasin Kolo will transfer into the Knights' program. Kolo is a 6-foot-10, 245-pound center who played previously at the University of Hartford and East Carolina University.

A native of Goettingen, Germany, Kolo graduated from Fayetteville (N.C.) Christian High School and was a member of the North Carolina 2A All-State team after averaging 21.8 points and 10 rebounds a game his senior season. Local fans may remember Kolo from an appearance last year when he scored 12 points and pulled down eight boards for the Hartford Hawks in a Nov. 19, 2013 game against the University of Louisville at the YUM! Center.

"Yasin is a great addition to our basketball program," said Davenport. "He has a wealth of Division I and international experience. He is an outstanding young man who has demonstrated to our staff time and time again how badly he wants to be a Bellarmine Knight. Our staff showed great patience in the pursuit of Yasin and our entire program benefitted from their hard work. He is a quality big man who really knows how to utilize his abilities at both ends of the floor. We had previously recruited Yasin and we watched him play last year with great interest. We were very excited with how he performed against Louisville, obviously, one of the top programs in all of basketball."

Kolo is anxious to start his Bellarmine career. "When I came on my visit (to Bellarmine), I just loved it here from the get-go," Kolo said. "There's a great atmosphere in the locker room and on the court, and I really look forward to being a part of the Bellarmine program."

Donnie Hale Leaves Bellarmine Program

Coach Davenport also announced today that New Albany native Donnie Hale has left the program. "I wish nothing but the best for Donnie," said Davenport. "I really like Donnie and his family and I completely understand his decision. I am pulling for him to be successful in his pursuit of his degree and all his future endeavors away from basketball."
