      THE HISTORY OF NAVY BASKETBALL
      A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE
             It all started with what would simply be called a pick-up game
      today.
             Fifteen years after Dr. James Naismith invented his popular game
      with two peach baskets, a soccer ball and a smooth floor in Springfield,
      Mass., in 1891, basketball was ushered in at the Naval Academy on
      Saturday, Dec. 29, 1906, at the Annapolis Armory.
             In a game contested between two picked teams of midshipmen,
      the Navy “Blacks” defeated the Navy “Whites,” 18-11, in a game that
      left its mark on Annapolis and on the Academy.
             The Annapolis Evening Capital described the game as “spirited and
      skillful from the start and there is no question that the game made
      itself popular in one bound and will become one of the regular sports
      of the institution.”
             That prophecy came true the very next season, as Navy took the
      floor against the Corcoran Cadets for its first intercollegiate contest on
      Dec. 14, 1907.The Midshipmen topped Corcoran, 28-12, writing the
      first page of Navy’s basketball history.                                                        Navy’s first basketball team
             Navy finished 2-2 that first season, and basketball fever swept over
      the Academy just like it had the rest of the country.

gram in 1946 and continued working his magic.
      In his first season as Navy’s head coach, Carnevale guided the Mids
to a 16-1 regular-season record and landed Navy its first-ever berth in
the NCAA Tournament in 1947. In the NCAAs, the Mids fell to Holy
Cross, 55-47, in the first round and then lost to Wisconsin, 50-49, in the
consolation game.
      “My first year at Navy was a new environment and a new group of
players that I had no association with,” Carnevale said. “Still, we were
very, very successful.”
      So successful that Carnevale caught the eye of the entire country
and was named National Coach of the Year at season’s end.
      “We concentrated on defense,” Carnevale said. “And not too
many ball clubs liked to play us. A lot of teams from up north would
come down and play us because they wanted to play against a tough
defense.”
      A sentimental milestone came for Carnevale on Feb. 24, 1947,
when his first son was born in Annapolis. Five days later, Carnevale’s
Navy squad went out and toppled Army, 64-42, which was Navy’s first
win over the Cadets in six tries.
      In Carnevale’s first season, the Mids were led by senior captain
Kenny Shugart, who averaged 13.4 points per game en route to earning
Second-Team All-America honors by the Helms Foundation. Shugart’s
trademark was a patented one-handed push shot. He was also a good
passer and a solid defensive player.
      What Carnevale started in his first season as head coach, he car-
ried with him throughout his 20 years at Navy. Carnevale concluded his
coaching career at Navy with 257 wins and 160 losses, finishing as the
school’s all-time winningest coach. He also took Navy to four more
NCAA Tournament berths and to one berth in the NIT.
      “Our success at the Naval Academy was in the development of
the ‘team’ concept,” Carnevale once said. “We have not emphasized the
individual ball player, but have attempted to make him a working mem-
ber of the group.
      “We’ve had some outstanding individual players. Fellows like
Shugart, John Clune, Don Lange, Dave Smalley, Dick Brown and Jay
Metzler all had the gifts of individual greatness. But each of them had to
be willing to work as a member of the team.”
                                                                                         All-American Kenny Shugart
      Working within this team concept didn’t prevent players from
emerging as stars in Carnevale’s system. Don Lange and John Clune
were two of the best who played under Carnevale.

      THE HISTORY OF NAVY BASKETBALL
            Clune averaged 24.4 points in the 1953-54 season, which is the
      second-highest single-season average at Navy. In Navy’s NCAA
      Tournament opener against Connecticut in Buffalo, N.Y., Clune poured
      in 42 points and tied the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium single-game
      scoring record, as the Mids dispatched the Huskies, 85-80, to move on
      to the 1954 East Regional.
            In the East Regional against Cornell, Clune and Lange combined
      for 50 points, but it was Ken McCally’s jumper with two seconds
      remaining that lifted Navy to a 69-67 win. Navy’s dream season came to
      an end in the East Regional final when La Salle rode a strong second
      half to a 64-48 win.
            Carnevale continued his winning ways, but it wasn’t until five years
      later, during the 1958-59 season, that Navy made it back to the
      NCAAs. Once there, however, the Midshipmen made lots of noise.
            In the first round, Navy stunned a North Carolina squad that had
      been ranked No. 1 in the nation earlier in the season.The Mids handled
      the Tar Heels with relative ease in their 76-63 win, and afterwards
      Carnevale called his 1959 team “the best Navy team I’ve ever had.”
            North Carolina head coach Frank McGuire, who served as
      Carnevale’s assistant when he was at UNC, was thoroughly impressed
      with the Midshipmen.
            “Navy can go all the way in this tournament,” he said.
            However, Boston University derailed the upstart Mids in the sec-
      ond round, 62-55 in overtime. But Navy rebounded in the East Regional
      consolation game, beating St. Joseph's, 70-56, to finish third in the
      region.
                                                                                              Dave Smalley
            With the bulk of his 1959 team returning, Carnevale was cautious-
      ly optimistic about the 1959-60 campaign. Still, Carnevale led the Mids
      to a 16-6 record and their second-straight NCAA Tournament appear-

      Still, many didn’t understand the magnitude of Navy’s 30-5 season                                                   David Robinson
and postseason march. One who did was Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski,
who had played and coached at Army.
      “It’s sensational what Navy’s done,” Krzyzewski said. “Having
coached at Army, I can say that — sensational.”
      Krzyzewski was so understanding he wanted to go into Navy’s
locker room after Duke’s win and tell all the Navy players how remark-
able their feat was. He didn’t out of fear that the Navy players might
take it the wrong way.
      “I wanted to tell the players, listen, I coached and played at Army
when Army basketball was great, and what you’ve done far exceeds all
of that,” Krzyzewski was quoted saying in the Washington Post. “To get
30 wins, to play for the Final Four at a service academy is remarkable.”
      Paul Evans left Navy after the record-setting 1985-86 campaign to
take over the head coaching job at Pittsburgh. In his six years in
Annapolis, Evans fashioned a winner. Improving each season, Evans
reached his stride in his last four years at the Academy, compiling a 98-
30 overall record, a 49-3 mark at home and consecutive 20-win sea-
sons for the first time at any service academy.
      Navy then chose Pete Herrmann, a six-year assistant under Evans,
to guide the Navy program, and Evans didn’t leave the cupboard bare.
Robinson and Wojcik returned for their senior seasons, and eyes were
once again on Annapolis.
      Sports Illustrated ranked the Midshipmen 17th in the country in
its preseason poll and featured Robinson on the cover of its 1986-87
college basketball preview issue headlined with the words, “Top Gun.”
And as a senior, Robinson was truly college basketball’s “Top Gun.”
      Navy found itself back in the NCAA Tournament at season’s end,
but the stay was a shorter one than the year before. Michigan knocked
the Mids out of the tournament, 97-82, in the first round, but not
before Robinson scored a career-high 50 points against the Wolverines.
                                                                                 Robinson admitted after the game that he would have gladly trad-

                                                                            N.C.

      THE HISTORY OF NAVY BASKETBALL
           DeVoe’s first Navy squad was a young one that finished 8-19, but
      improved to 5-9 in the Patriot League after finishing just 1-13 in the
      league the year before. Navy’s improvement continued the next season,
      as DeVoe took the Mids to heights the Academy had not seen since the
      David Robinson era.
           Navy finished 17-13 in DeVoe’s second season, tied for the Patriot
      League regular-season title and won the Patriot League Conference
      Tournament. DeVoe was named Patriot League and District IV Coach
      of the Year in 1994, and Navy played Missouri in the first round of the
      NCAA Tournament.
           “It was truly a remarkable season,” DeVoe said. “This is my proud-
      est moment in coaching.These kids have been unbelievable to deal
      with.They never gave up when things got tough, and they always
      worked hard for me.”
           In 1994-95, DeVoe gave Navy its first 20-win season in eight years,
      and in 1997-98, he coached the Mids to their fourth-straight winning
      season and their second trip to the NCAA Tournament in the last four
      seasons.
           After posting a 15-12 record in 1995-96, the Mids captured back-
      to-back Patriot League championships in 1996-97 and 1997-98. As a
      result, Navy was one of only 27 teams to advance to the 1997 and ’98
      NCAA Tournaments.
           In 1998-99, Navy posted its first 20-win regular season (20-7) in
      12 years. In addition, its 11-3 non-conference mark was the best in
      Patriot League history.

      Navy’s trademark man-to-man defense dates back more than 50 years.Weeks after direct-
ing North Carolina to a runner-up finish in the NCAA Tournament, Ben Carnevale was named                               BOX SCORES
the Midshipmen’s 11th head coach. He immediately emphasized defense to his players in

      Unfortunately for the Mids, their biggest asset during the regular season turned into their
primary detriment in the postseason. Just two days after dropping their first-round game to Holy                       Navy              FG   FT       TP

      In both tournament games, Navy built a lead but was unable to maintain it. A nine-point                          John Barrow       2    1-2      5

      Wisconsin utilized a sliding man-to-man defense to overcome a four-point deficit. Kenny                          Lee Rensberger    0    0-1      0

Shugart led Navy with 12 points, while Waldrop added 11. Despite ending the year with two-                             Totals            21   7-13     49

      According to Carnevale, this balance made them a pleasure to coach.                                                               Halftime     FG%    FT%

      Not that Carnevale didn’t have to give them an occasional pep talk.The March 1, 1947

      the Basketball Hall of Fame’s second-annual Chip Hilton Award.The
      Chip Hilton Award recognizes the college basketball player who has
      demonstrated personal character both on and off the court similar
      to the fictional Chip Hilton character depicted by Hall of Fame
      coach Clair Bee in the classic Chip Hilton Sports Series.
            The development of junior Josh Williams and sophomore
      Sitapha Savane was also instrumental to Navy’s progress.When sen-
      ior Mike Palumbo went down with a knee injury in late December,
      the 6-11, 235-pound Williams flourished as the starting center. He
      turned in a career-high 32-point, 10-rebound, six-blocked shot effort
      in an 88-66 win over Lehigh Jan. 22 and averaged a steady 10 points
      and seven rebounds in the three wins over Army.
            The 6-8 Savane, a native of Dakar, Senegal, proved to be one of
      the Patriot League’s up-and-coming frontcourt players. “The Senegal
      Sensation” was a Patriot League All-Rookie Team selection, as he
      averaged 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game and blocked a team-
      high 37 shots. In the Patriot League championship game against
      Lafayette, Savane scored 15 points and grabbed six rebounds while
      helping contain 6-11 Stefan Ciosci, the Patriot League Player of the
      Year.
            Freshman swingman Chris Williams was also a pleasant surprise
      for the Midshipmen.The athletic 6-4 Williams bounced back from
      preseason knee surgery to average six points and nearly three
      rebounds, including 30 points, 14 rebounds and 13 steals in the three
      Patriot League Tournament games.

      RETIRED JERSEYS

      NO. 51 VERNON BUTLER

           Second on Navy’s all-time career scoring and rebounding lists,Vernon Butler
      became the first player in Navy men’s basketball history to have his jersey retired.
           Butler, a four-year letterwinner from 1983-86, closed out his career with 1,952
      points and 1,115 rebounds after captaining the Mid squads through two of the most
      successful seasons in Navy history.
           Leading the Mids to a 26-6 mark as a junior in 1985 and Navy’s first appearance
      in the NCAA Tournament in 25 years, Butler then guided the Mids to a 30-5 mark,
      closing out his career against Duke in the East Region finals.
           A three-time all-conference forward, Butler was a 57 percent career shooter
      from the field and twice led the conference in rebounding.

      NO. 4 JOHN CLUNE
           A 1954 All-America, John Clune established a Navy single-season scoring record
      which stood for 31 years and a career scoring record which lasted 25 years.
           His single-season total of 634 points still ranks fourth, while his career total of
      1,561 is also fourth. Meanwhile, he still owns the Naval Academy record for career
      scoring average with 22.3 points per game.
           In 1955, Clune played on the Armed Forces Pan American team and in 1956, he
      was a member of the Air Force Olympic Trials team.
           Clune was junior varsity basketball coach at the Air Force Academy in 1965-66
      and was named the sixth Athletic Director of the Air Force Academy in November,
      1975, a post he held until his retirement in 1991.

 THE HISTORY OF NAVY BASKETBALL
NO. 13 DON LANGE
Noted for his deadly hook shot, Don Lange and Navy basketball go hand in hand. Lange
teamed up with John Clune to lead the Midshipmen to back-to-back NCAA Tournament
appearances in 1952-53 and 1953-54 under the guidance of legendary coach Ben Carnevale.
     A native of the Windy City, Lange earned Third-Team All-America recognition in his
second season of playing basketball. Ironically enough, Lange gained success on the basket-
ball floor with no prior experience of playing the organized game. It wasn’t until entering
the Navy that he even tried his hand at the sport.
     After playing just three seasons, Lange is just one of 15 Navy players to top the 1000-
point milestone. With 1344-career points, he stands 10th on the Mids’ all-time scoring
leader board and owns the fourth-best career scoring average with 20.1 points per game.
A bull on the boards, Lange remains Navy’s all-time leader in rebounding average, tipping
the charts at 11.9 rebounds per game.
     During his final two seasons, he put together a string of 28-consecutive double-figure
scoring games — Navy’s third-longest consecutive double-scoring games. His 43-point per-
formance against Johns Hopkins Jan. 6, 1954, remains one of the best scoring outputs in
Navy history.
     He posted 13 30-plus scoring games during his career, nine of which were in his
final campaign.

NO. 50 KEVIN SINNETT
     Navy’s third all-time leading scorer with 1687 points, Sinnett joins David
Robinson,Vernon Butler, John Clune and Don Lange as the only five players in
Midshipmen history to have their jerseys retired.
     Sinnett, a four-year letterwinner and captain of the 1978-79 squad, closed out his
career with 797 rebounds — a Navy record at that time. Twenty years later, his
rebound record now stands fourth on the Navy leader board.
     A hometown favorite hailing from Annapolis, Sinnett led the Mids in scoring all
four years, including a 483-point performance his senior season. Additionally, he led
Navy in rebounds his sophomore through senior seasons, including a high of 209 his
junior campaign.
     Along the way, Sinnett recorded three 30-plus point games, including a career-
high 34 against Penn State on Valentine’s Day in 1976. His 34-point effort guided the
Mids to an 83-81 win over the Nittany Lions at Halsey Field House.
     Former head coach Bob Hamilton was quoted as saying, “He’s the best I’ve ever
had at being able to score both inside and outside.”
     Sinnett also excelled in the classroom, garnering Second-Team Academic All-
America recognition his junior year.

      THE HISTORY OF NAVY BASKETBALL
      NO. 50 DAVID
      ROBINSON
      2003, 1999 NBA CHAMPION
      1987 NCAA PLAYER OF THE YEAR
      NAVAL ACADEMY CLASS OF 1987
            He came to Annapolis a skinny 6-7 freshman from Woodbridge,
      Va., and an unheralded Osbourn Park High program. He did not start a
      game as a freshman in Navy’s 24-8 season, but jumped the opening tap
      in the next 99 games, as Navy rolled to 82 wins in those three cam-
      paigns.
            In four years, David Robinson sprouted six inches, and his court
      numbers soared, as well.
            He claimed a pair of national blocked shot titles, as well as a
      rebounding crown and scored 2,669 points in his career, 10th most in
      NCAA history.
            Before Robinson, no player had scored 2,500 points, grabbed
      1,300 rebounds (1,314) and shot better than 60 percent from the field
      (.613).
            Robinson added to his basketball resume when he played for the
      1992 U.S. Olympic gold-medal winning basketball team. It was
      Robinson's second tour with the Olympic squad. He became the first
      basketball player to compete in three Olympics when he participated
      in the 1996 Games in Atlanta. A perennial NBA All-Star, he led the San
      Antonio Spurs to the 1999 and 2003 NBA titles.
            The 1987 College Player of the Year left Annapolis with 33
      Academy records to his name.
