He was determined to do the same at A&M. Last season, in just the third year of his program, Barone's plan began to payoff as the Aggies finished tied for second in the SWC and received an NIT bid, the Aggies' first postseason tournament in seven years. Playing with a full allotment of scholarship players for the first time at A&M, his team finished 19- 11 and he was the consensus selection as the SWC's coach of the year. A 1968 graduate of Duke, Barone has always emphasized the importantance of academics in college athletics and as a result, all but one of the 20 players he brought into his program at Creighton have earned their degrees and the other one is still in school. In his first year at A&M, the basketball team posted its highest-ever aggregate grade point average. Barone's past success on the basketball court has gained him a national reputation, leading such notables as former Marquette coach and NBC college basketball analyst Al McGuire to comment, "if I was to start a basketball program tomorrow, Tony Barone would be my coach." Barone, a former Chicago Cubs batboy and Wrigley Field concessions vendor, was a two-time all-state guard at St. George H.S. in Evanston, 111., and achieved his dream when Duke coach Vic Bubas awarded him a scholarship. He took his win-to-survive philosophy to Duke and as a sophomore helped the Blue Devils to a third place finish at the 1966 NCAA Tournament. Barone earned three letters, became an academic All-American and was elected team captain as a senior. Barone arrived at Creighton in 1985 too late to recruit for his first season, but the Bluejays managed to finish 12-16 and tied for fourth in the MVC. In 1988-89 Barone's Bluejays surged to a 20-11 record, their first MVC title since 1978 and their first-ever conference tournament crown, which propelled the team to its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1981. As a result, Barone was named District XII coach of the year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches as well as MVC coach of the year. In 1989-90, the Bluejays posted their second straight 20-win season, finishing with a 21-12 ledger, placing second in the league and receiving their first NIT berth since 1984. In Barone's final season in Omaha, Creighton won the most games in its long history, completing a 24-8 slate and posting a first- round NCAA Tournament victory. In nine years as a college head coach, Barone has built a record of 137-132 (.509). Barone and his wife, Kathy, live in College Station with their two sons, Tony, Jr. (22) Brian (16). Their daughter, Amy (24), and her husband, Kevin Kentfield, reside in Omaha. Tony, Jr. played three years as a guard at A&M. r» m, m B^ lUk Mitch Buonaguro Asst.
