Bozeman Basketball Program Consistency
When the word consistency is brought up in regards to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference basketball, Todd Bozeman and his Morgan State men’s basketball program certainly comes to mind immediately and for a good reason.
The Bears have participated in five of the last seven MEAC Tournament championships, captured back-to-back MEAC Titles, and made appearances in the NIT and two NCAA Tournaments.
It’s not just the March success that indicates Morgan State is a consistent program. The Bears have been among the Top Five ranked teams in the MEAC standings for five of the past seven years, including three MEAC regular season titles and a pair of MEAC championships in that span. It’s truly a remarkable statistic considering the turnover that occurs every season.
In fact, from 2006-present Todd Bozeman has compiled a 134-110 (.549) record after 244 games at Morgan State. That winning mean is the second highest among 15 head coaches in the history of the Morgan State men’s basketball program, and as far as historical value, Bozeman is the school’s all-time winningest Division I head coach – hands down.
Bozeman has also been tremendous in conference play where he has led his Bears to a tremendous 81-35 (.698 pct) conference mark, and has been named the MEAC Coach of Year twice, and has also been honored as the Hugh Durham Mid-Major Coach of the Year.
Current overseas rosters are also littered with Bozeman players of the past seven years, including the likes of Joe Davis, Kevin Thompson and the school’s all-time leading scorer Reggie Holmes.
There is no question that Todd Bozeman has turned Morgan State’s program that was the perennial doormat of the league into one of the premier teams in the MEAC. One day his name will surely be in the rafters of Hill Field House, along with a few of the standouts from his championship teams.
