Crutchfield, Sharks Announce 2022-23 Schedule

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Following an incredible run during the 2021-22 season, in which Nova Southeastern won both the Sunshine State Conference regular season and tournament titles, in addition to advancing to the Elite Eight for the second time in program history, the Sharks have reloaded and are preparing for another exciting year.  

Last season, NSU carried an undefeated record through the NCAA Regional Tournament and advanced to the Elite Eight with a 31-0 record, becoming the first Sunshine State Conference team to go undefeated in league play.  

“This is the most challenging schedule that we have faced here at NSU,” said Head Coach Jim Crutchfield. “We open with two perennial nationally ranked teams in Alabama-Huntsville and Dallas Baptist in Orlando. I also think Pitt-Johnstown and Francis Marion are two very strong teams that will be vying for NCAA postseason bids. When you add in the gauntlet of the Sunshine State Conference, which is rated as one of the top conferences in the country, you have a heck of a schedule.” 

The Sharks tip-off the 2022-23 campaign on 11/5 against Alabama-Huntsville and follow with the second half of a back-to-back on 11/6 versus Dallas Baptist. NSU begins their home schedule with a matchup against Fort Lauderdale for homecoming weekend on November 11th from the Shark Tank. Nova Southeastern then hosts Pitt-Johnstown (11/22) and Francis Marion (11/26), before beginning Sunshine State Conference play.  

NSU opens league action on Nov. 30 in Boca Raton, taking on the Fighting Knights of Lynn before welcoming Eckerd to the Shark Tank on 12/3. Nova Southeastern then travels to Palm Beach Atlantic on 12/10. The Sharks then return home for their longest home-stand of the 2022-23 campaign, hosting Florida Memorial (12/13), Bluefield State (12/19), Florida Tech (12/29), and Florida Southern (1/1) at the Rick Case Arena.   

Nova Southeastern plays a pair of road games, after the calendar flips to 2023, traveling to Rollins on Jan. 4 and then to Barry on Jan. 7. The Sharks then take on Tampa (1/11) and Saint Leo (1/14) from the Shark Tank before traveling to Daytona for a rematch against last season’s Sweet 16 opponent, Embry-Riddle on Jan. 18.  

Over the final five weeks of the regular season, Nova Southeastern takes on Lynn (1/21), Rollins (1/25), Florida Southern (1/28), Palm Beach Atlantic (2/1), Florida Tech (2/8), Saint Leo (2/11), Barry (2/15), Tampa (2/18), Eckerd (2/22) and will host Embry-Riddle for senior day on Feb. 25.

Jordan Fee Promoted to Men’s Basketball Associate Head Coach

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A member of the Nova Southeastern men’s basketball coaching staff since 2015, and a vital piece in the Sharks’ two NCAA South Region titles in the last four years, former lead assistant Jordan Fee has officially been promoted to associate head coach.

“Nothing has been more challenging nor more rewarding than building this program alongside Coach Crutch and our amazing young men,” said Fee. “While I’m appreciative of this title and acknowledgment, nothing changes our commitment to continuing our pursuit of being a championship-caliber program in every facet. Thank you to Coach Crutch, university administration and athletic administration. I couldn’t be more excited for our future.”

Alongside head coach Jim Crutchfield, Fee has helped elevate NSU into one of the premier programs in NCAA Division II. Since the start of the 2018-19 campaign, the Sharks have posted a combined overall record of 83-11, including marks of 53-7 in Sunshine State Conference play and 56-4 at home during that span. Outside of a canceled 2020 NCAA Tournament and a shut down 2020-21 season, NSU has reached the Elite Eight in each of the past two postseasons in which it has competed. As recently as 2021-22, the Sharks held the title as the nation’s No. 1 team throughout February and March en route to capturing SSC regular season and tournament titles before hoisting the South Region trophy again on their home floor.

Off the court, Fee has also proven to be a successful recruiter, serving as the primary coach responsible for the signings of current NBA G League player Gerard Tarin, 2018 SSC Freshman of the Year Malik Hardy, 2019 All-SSC selection Mikkel Kolstad, as well as 2022 National Player of the Year Sekou Sylla and All-American RJ Sunahara, among others. With the recent promotion, the program’s momentum doesn’t appear as if it’ll be slowing down any time soon.  

“Everybody that is close to the NSU basketball program is aware of what a huge factor Jordan has been in the successes we have enjoyed,” said Crutchfield, who coached Fee from 2010-12 while at West Liberty. “I feel the distinction of the title of Associate Head Coach is in great part recognition of that.

“In addition to being an outstanding coach on the court, both in practice sessions and on gameday, Jordan has proven himself as a great recruiter.
 
“There are so many things such as player academics, NCAA compliance, player housing, budgeting and scheduling that need to be addressed daily in a college basketball program. Jordan has been very effective in these areas and every other detail of the NSU basketball program. I think he has a great future in this business.”

In 2018-19, Fee was recognized on the Under Armour 30-Under-30 Team and was also ranked No. 6 in CoachStat.net’s Top-25 DII/DIII Assistant Coaches poll. He was later selected as one of Silver Waves Media’s Top-50 Most Impactful Division II Assistant Coaches.

Sharks Reload with Four Signees in 2022 Recruiting Class

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Following a memorable run to the Elite Eight that included a near-perfect 31-1 record, head coach Jim Crutchfield and the Nova Southeastern men’s basketball program have begun the process of rebuilding the roster with the addition of four signees as part of the 2022 recruiting class. The Sharks continue to replenish their depth across the board, welcoming in a trio of guards in Ryan Davis, Maxwell Gordon and Will Yoakum, along with former Division I forward Tomas Murphy.
 
Ryan Davis (6-4, 210, Guard)
 
Player Profile: The lone early signee of the bunch, Davis joins the Sharks after a massive senior season in which he guided his Martin County High School team to a Class 6A State Championship before being selected as the Class 6A Player of the Year. Davis was also named a finalist for Florida’s Mr. Basketball and is a two-time Treasure Coast Player of the Year. At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Davis is a strong guard that passes very well and likes to get to the rim. He has proven the ability to carry the load for his team and has the capability to guard positions 1-5 on the floor. Beyond his physical traits, Davis will bring plenty of toughness and leadership to the Sharks.

Davis on why he chose NSU: “I committed to NSU because of the way the team all looks out for each other. I could tell that it’s like a family and I wanted to be a part of it.”
 
What Crutchfield is saying: “Ryan just finished an incredible career at Martin County High School, where he captured a state championship and was named 6A Player of the Year in Florida. The way Ryan plays the game, I would label him as an outstanding competitor. That competitive nature is always sought out by coaches and I am glad he is bringing it to NSU.”
 
Maxwell Gordon (5-9, 170, Guard)
 
Player Profile: With the departure of both Eddie Puisis and Nick Smith, Gordon will provide depth to a fairly youthful backcourt that will include Davis, along with Dallas Graziani, Jake Maranville, Mike Moore, Jonathan Pierre and Kobe Rodgers. Gordon joins the Sharks following a successful career at one of South Florida’s premier programs, Cypress Bay High School, where he played under NSU alumni Jason Looky. A true lead guard with a pass-first mentality, Gordon guided Cypress Bay to the Elite Eight in 2022 before finishing as an All-Broward County Second Team selection. He’s a big-time competitor that makes those around him better.

Gordon on why he chose NSU: “My biggest reason for deciding to go to NSU was that I felt truly wanted by the program, not only as a player but also as a person. They put a big emphasis on the type of person they recruit, and after watching their program over the last few years, that really stuck out to me. I wanted to be a part of it.”

What Crutchfield is saying: “I’m always glad to have a local player with such high character like Maxwell join our program. He comes from an outstanding and successful high school program at Cypress Bay, and played a significant role in their recent success. I know he will blend well with the players on our roster.”

Tomas Murphy (6-8, 225, Forward)

Player Profile: Murphy becomes the highest-rated prospect coming out of high school to join the program, earning a four-star rating by ESPN and three-star ratings by both Rivals and Scout in the 2017 class. The 6-foot-8 forward has an extensive basketball lineage, including his father, Jay, who played at Boston College from 1980-84 before going on to a notable professional career that featured four years in the NBA. His mother, Paivi, played professionally in Sweden, while oldest brother Erik was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the 2013 NBA Draft after four successful years at the University of Florida. His other older brother, Alex, spent his collegiate career at Duke, Florida and Northeastern.

Murphy signed with Northeastern out of high school, where he was named to the 2017-18 CAA All-Rookie Team, and later played a pivotal role on the Huskies’ 2018-19 CAA Championship team that faced Kansas in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. He also spent two years at Vermont, redshirting in 2021-22, and was a member of the Finnish U20 National Team in 2017.

Expect Murphy to compete for a considerable role in the NSU frontcourt. He exhibits an inside-out game with pick-and-pop capabilities, flashes rim-running athleticism, plays unselfishly as a willing passer and is a solid rebounder.

Murphy will have two years of eligibility remaining.  

Murphy on why he chose NSU: “I chose Nova Southeastern University because of the high-level program led by Coach Crutchfield and Coach Fee. They made me feel welcome during my visit and am looking forward to the chance to compete for a National Championship next season with the Sharks.”
 
What Crutchfield is saying: “Tomas is the prototypical, multi-skilled big man that fits well in our system. He has proven himself to be a quality player at the DI level, and after a couple years of battling injuries, I know he’s chomping at the bit to hit the court at full strength. I’m just glad it will be in a Shark uniform.”

Will Yoakum (6-5, 185, Guard/Forward)
 
Player Profile: Signed by Crutchfield at West Liberty prior to his move to NSU back in 2017, Yoakum will finally get the opportunity to play for the Sharks’ head coach in his final collegiate season. At 6-foot-5, Yoakum is an ideal fit for the way NSU plays, possessing plenty of versatility, a strong shooting stroke and the ability to cut and move without the ball. During his time at West Liberty, Yoakum earned D2 Bulletin All-America honors, was a two-time, All-MEC First Team pick, was named the 2020 MEC Tournament MVP in addition to being recognized as the MEC Freshman of the Year. He helped lead the Hilltoppers to a combined five conference titles, a trip to the Elite Eight in 2021, and heads to Fort Lauderdale already with 1,355 career points under his belt.
 
Yoakum will have one year of eligibility remaining.

Yoakum on why he chose NSU: “I chose NSU because of the high-quality education, but also the opportunity to be a part of one of the best DII programs in the nation. It’s exciting to get to play for the NSU staff and Coach Crutchfield, who recruited me out of high school. They don’t just win games here, they strive to win championships.”
 
What Crutchfield is saying: “How often do you get the opportunity to sign a player twice? I liked Will’s game five years ago and I like it even more now. He is a proven winner and comes in already familiar with our system.”
 
The Sharks return 10 players from last year’s NCAA South Region Championship team that finished the season with a record of 31-1.

NSU’s Historic Run Ends in Elite Eight

Box Score EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The magical season in which the Nova Southeastern men’s basketball team carried an undefeated record with it into the Elite Eight came to a close on Tuesday, as the top-seeded Sharks were stunned by No. 8 seed Black Hills State by a final score of 77-67 at the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind. NSU finishes the year at 31-1 overall.

“I’m still really proud of my team,” said NSU head coach Jim Crutchfield. “I feel like they battled until the very end. Not a great shooting day, but maybe Black Hills State had something to do with that. Congratulations to them. I’m proud of our players. Every season ends with a loss unless you win the National Championship, and ours happened to come today.”

INSIDE THE MATCHUP:
Score: Black Hills State 77, Nova Southeastern 67
Records: Black Hills State (26-7), Nova Southeastern (31-1)
Location: Ford Center | Evansville, Ind.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
1st Half | NSU leading scorer Sekou Sylla carried the Sharks in the early going, pouring in eight of the team’s first 11 points to propel them to an 11-7 advantage prior to the initial media timeout. The offensive rhythm seemingly disappeared, however, as the Sharks would go scoreless for the next 5:55 until a Nick Smith triple pulled them back to within 19-14. The deficit reached as many as nine in the first half. A notable spark, though, that included a combined three three’s off the bench by Shane Hunter and Jonathan Pierre made it a one-possession ball game once again with 4:45 remaining before the break. The lead alternated three times in the final 1:01 of the half before an Eddie Puisis jumper at the buzzer ultimately gave the Sharks the upper hand, 33-32, heading into the locker room.

2nd Half | A pair of three’s by Smith in the opening 2:40 of the second half kept NSU in front 39-37, which is where the margin hung still with 14:29 to go. Another scoring drought, though, soon struck the Sharks as they went a span of 6:49 without a field goal to fall behind by six. Hanging within striking distance throughout the half, Sylla dropped in a lay-up at the 3:58 mark to narrow the gap to 60-58. The margin was three just moments later, yet the momentum shifted drastically when the Sharks failed to score despite four consecutive offensive rebounds before the Yellow Jackets drilled a three on the other end to re-open a six-point lead with under two minutes to play. NSU would miss its next four field goals as well, as reality soon set in on a heartbreaking end to a memorable season.

STATS OF THE NIGHT:

  • Smith and Puisis finished with 16 and eight points, respectively, in the final game of their notable careers.
  • The Sharks shot just 32.9 percent from the field, including 26.2 percent in the second half.
  • NSU was out-rebounded 55-35 in the contest.
  • Black Hills State All-American Joel Scott recorded 25 points and 13 boards.

UP NEXT:
NSU will return 11 of its 13 players, including All-Americans Sunahara and Sylla, in 2022-23.  To stay up-to-date with the Sharks, visit the schedule page on NSUSharks.com or follow the Sharks on Instagram and Twitter at @NSU_MBasketball.

Sylla Chosen as the D2CCA National Player of the Year

ALBANY, N.Y. – Voted upon by the NCAA Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), Nova Southeastern’s Sekou Sylla has been selected as the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) 2022 Men’s Basketball Ron Lenz National Player of the Year, announced on Monday. Sylla becomes the program’s first-ever National Player of the Year.

Sylla has been an absolute force in his first season on the court with the Sharks, entering Tuesday’s Elite Eight matchup with Blue Hills State with averages of 22.6 points on 58.4 percent shooting to go along with 10. 5 rebounds per game. In 31 starts for the nation’s lone unbeaten, the junior has posted 22 double-doubles – second-most in DII – including a current streak of 10 in a row. Sylla has been previously named to the Bevo Franics Top 25 Watch List, recognized as the D2CCA South Region Player of the Year, and became the first player in Sunshine State Conference history to earn SSC Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors in the same season. He leads DII in field goals made with 290 and is one of just six players to average 20-plus points and 10-plus rebounds.

Joining Sylla on the D2CAA All-America First Team are Northwest Missouri State’s Trevor Hudgins, Daemen’s Andrew Sischo, Flagler’s Jaizec Lottie and Hillsdale’s Patrick Cartier.

Completing what can justifiably be considered the nation’s most formidable frontcourt, NSU’s RJ Sunahara has also been tabbed an All-American by the D2CCA, landing on the third team. The second of two Sharks on the Bevo Francis Top 25 Watch List, Sunahara has averaged 19.5 points on 60.8 percent from the field while adding 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per contest. The redshirt-sophomore reeled in SSC Defensive Player of the Year and SSC Tournament MVP honors earlier this month, and has been especially key with a team-high 22.8 points per night in the Sharks’ six postseason games.

Top-seeded NSU will look to continue its deep run in March when it squares off against No. 8 seed Black Hills State in the Elite Eight on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Sharks Secure Spot in Elite Eight with 71-68 Win

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – For the second time in program history, the Nova Southeastern men’s basketball team is headed to the Elite Eight after earning the NCAA South Region Tournament title in thrilling fashion on Tuesday. Similar to Sunday’s Round of 32 ball game, the Sharks faced an early double-digit deficit – this time trailing by as many as 13.  Once again, though, the Sharks displayed toughness and a unique will to battle back, finally grabbing the lead with 2:52 remaining before holding on for a 71-68 victory over third-seeded Embry-Riddle.

INSIDE THE MATCHUP:
Score: Nova Southeastern 71, Embry-Riddle 68
Records: Nova Southeastern (31-0), Embry-Riddle (24-10)

HOW IT HAPPENED:
1st Half | Contrary to what the NSU faithful is accustomed to watching, the Sharks were forced to play much more a halfcourt, grind-it-out game on Tuesday. At least early on, that definitely favored the Eagles. NSU led 9-7 following a Sekou Sylla lay-up with 16:18 remaining. However, the Sharks faced an uphill battle for nearly the rest of the game. As a part of a 12-2 run, ERAU All-American Romeo Crouch threw down a dunk to give the Eagles a 28-15 advantage at the 7:27 mark. Needing some sort of spark, NSU received one from an unlikely source in freshman Jonathan Pierre. Scoring eight points during the stretch, Pierre ignited a 14-0 NSU spurt to help the Sharks regain a 29-28 edge with 3:31 to go before the break. The Eagles would answer right back, though, with two three-pointers to quiet the sold-out crowd, eventually taking a 36-33 lead into the locker room.

2nd Half | In the midst of a notable 17-point, 15-rebound double-double, ERAU’s Chris Murray recorded two consecutive buckets to begin the half to extend the Eagles’ advantage to 40-33. Another Pierre triple would allow the Sharks to hang within one possession with 14:48 to play, yet the deficit ballooned back to nine just moments later. Finally getting one to go, Eddie Puisis connected from beyond the arc to pull NSU back to within three as the Sharks continued to hang around until a Sylla jumper and back-to-back finishes by RJ Sunahara finally allowed NSU to pull ahead 65-63 with 2:52 showing on the clock. A Crouch jumper with under a minute left knotted the score at 68-68, yet Nick Smith and Puisis would each split a pair at the line to make it a 70-68 ball game with just 13 seconds remaining. As Smith gambled on a steal on the ensuing possession, Crouch earned a clean look from three. Lucky for the Sharks, though, the attempt missed off the left side of the iron as NSU was able to hold on.

BEYOND THE BOXSCORE:

  • The Sharks have now won the NCAA South Region twice within the last four years.
  • Tuesday marked NSU’s third win over Embry-Riddle.

STATS OF THE NIGHT:

  • After struggling in Sunday’s Round of 32 contest, Sylla responded in a big way, finishing with 23 points and 15 rebounds.
  • Sunahara registered 15 points and four blocked shots.
  • NSU turned the ball over just nine times in the effort.

UP NEXT:
NSU will head to Evansville, Ind. for the Elite Eight, set to begin on Tues., Mar. 22. The final eight teams will all be re-seeded prior to matchups being revealed.

Rodgers’ Heroics Send NSU to Sweet 16

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – He’d done it once before this season.

The Sharks overcame a 19-point, first-half deficit in the crazy finish and will now advance to the NCAA South Region Tournament title game for just the second time in program history.
