In six years at SMU, Shumate compiled a 71 - 97 record and has a nine-year overall coaching record of 129-130. The 1992-93 season was Shumate's most successful in terms of wins and losses as a collegiate head coach. His Mustangs finished as regular-season Southwest Conference champions, the school's first league title since 1988, and were selected to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years. With 20 wins, SMU doubled its victory total from the previous season. Shumate was a consensus SWC Coach of the Year selection. He also was chosen as the District VI Coach of the Year by the U.S. Basketball Writers Assoc, and District IX Coach of the Year by the National Assoc, of Basketball Coaches. "I've had opportunities to accept head coaching positions elsewhere," said Shumate. "But institutional fit is extremely important to me. I could not coach at a school where players major in 'eligibility.' SMU has its priorities straight. It's a unique, exciting opportunity." When Shumate talks about basketball at SMU, he focuses on more than just wins and losses. The former collegiate All-America and NBA star always tries to look at the "big picture." One area that makes Shumate quite proud is the Mustangs' graduation rate since 1988. Every Mustang player who has completed his eligibility during that time has received an undergraduate degree, including six seniors from last season. Shumate had an inauspicious start to his basketball career. As a freshman at Thomas Jefferson High School in Elizabeth, N.J., he was cut from the team. "I remember crying all the way home," said Shumate. He responded to JV coach Robin Tisdale's tutoring by earning All-America honors as a senior. A 1974 graduate of Notre Dame, Shumate was a first-team All-America for the Irish an went on to become a first-round draft choice of the Phoenix Suns in 1974. After missing his rookie season due to a blood clot in his leg, he was a member of the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1975-76. He went on to average 12.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game for six teams in the league. In July, 1983, Shumate was named head coach at Grand Canyon College, an NAIA school in Phoenix. He produced an overall record of 58-33 in three seasons with the Antelopes, including nine tournament victories. Two of Shumate's players were named All-America and one was named Academic All- America during his tenure. His team's grade point average increased from 1.3 to 2.5 under Shumate's reign. Shumate and his wife, Marilyn, have two children - Brittany Ashley and John Anthony. Jimmy Tubbs Dick Lien Asst. Coach Asst.
