Special Guest: Legendary Coach Jim Wooldridge

In 25 seasons as a collegiate head coach, Wooldridge compiled an overall won-lost record of 382-349, including a 70-112 mark at UCR. The Oklahoma City, OK native earned the reputation as a skilled program builder and coach whose teams emphasize teamwork, hard-nosed defense and rebounding. Wooldridge coached at the collegiate or professional level for 35 years, including stops as head coach at Central Missouri State, Texas State, Louisiana Tech and Kansas State and two years as an assistant coach to Tim Floyd with the Chicago Bulls. Wooldridge spent six years at Kansas State (2000-06), leading the Wildcats to their first winning season in six years with a 17-12 record in the Big 12 Conference in 2004-05. None of his teams finished with fewer than 11 wins and his 83 wins rank sixth on Kansas State’s all-time list for victories. Wooldridge had six players earn All-Big 12 honors and he coached the 2004 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year Jeremiah Massey. From 1998 through 2000, Wooldridge worked as an assistant coach under former college teammate Floyd. He was instrumental in the development of several top NBA players, including 1999-2000 Co-Rookie of the Year Elton Brand and Ron Artest, who earned all-rookie team honors in 1999-2000. He was considered the staff authority on the triangle offense, having taught it as the head coach at Louisiana Tech, after learning it from friend and triangle guru Tex Winter. Wooldridge started his collegiate coaching career as an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech during the 1977-78 season, then spent four years as an assistant coach at East Central State. In 1982, he joined Lynn Nance’s staff at NCAA Division II Central Missouri State University (CMSU), where he was the program’s chief recruiter. When Nance left following the 1985 season, Wooldridge was named head coach. He led the team to 20-or-more wins four times, including a 27-6 season in which they lost to CS Bakersfield in the NCAA Finals. Wooldridge is the only coach in CMSU history to record back-to-back 25-win seasons (1989-90 and 1990-91). For his efforts, Wooldridge was inducted into the Central Missouri State U. Athletic Hall of Fame on February 28, 2004. He made his NCAA Division I head coaching debut at Texas State (then Southwest Texas State) in 1991-92. He turned around a program that had suffered through seven consecutive sub-.500 seasons, getting the program above .500 in his second season. By his third year, the squad was 25-7 and earned the Bobcats’ first trip to the NCAA tournament. From there, Wooldridge was hired at his alma mater, Louisiana Tech. He took over a program that had won just nine games the previous two years combined and guided the Bulldogs to a pair of winning seasons in his first three seasons, including a 14-13 record in his first campaign. It was a remarkable improvement considering Louisiana Tech was coming off NCAA probation and a 2-25 record the previous season (1993-94). Even more impressive was the fact that the Bulldogs posted a .500 conference slate (9-9) in Wooldridge’s inaugural season, after going winless in Sun Belt play the year before (0-18). Wooldridge played on Putnam City High School’s class 4A state championship team in Oklahoma City in 1972. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Louisiana Tech in 1977, then earned a master’s degree in education from East Central University in 1979. Wooldridge and his wife, Ann, have two children, Jamie and Eric.

Featured Guest: Coach Tommy Wade, Jacksonville State

Tommy Wade - HeadshotRay Harper added another familiar face to his Jacksonville State bench upon his arrival in 2016, hiring veteran coach Tommy Wade as an assistant with the Gamecock men’s basketball program in 2016.  Wade came to JSU from Saint Louis, where he was named the Billikens’ Director of Student-Athlete Development in April 2016. He went to SLU with head coach Travis Ford, for whom he served eight seasons as the Director of Player Development at Oklahoma State.  Wade returned to Harper’s side just under a decade after helping the JSU head coach as an assistant at Oklahoma City and Kentucky Wesleyan. He and Harper led OCU to back-to-back NAIA Division I championship seasons. With Wade's assistance, OCU went 95-17 with three NAIA national title game appearances, three Sooner Athletic Conference championships and two SAC Tournament titles in three seasons. He also coached six All-Americans. Wade is part of a coaching staff that has averaged 20 wins per year since arriving in Jacksonville and twice broken the record for the program’s Division I single-season wins mark. Over the past four seasons, Jacksonville State has tallied 80 wins and appeared in the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament each year. JSU is one of only three programs to qualify for the league’s postseason in each of the last four seasons. Wade helped guide the Gamecocks to a program-best 24 wins in 2018-19, breaking Jacksonville State’s single-season wins total for a second year in a row. It marked the first time the program logged three straight seasons with 20-or-more wins since joining the Division I ranks. In addition, the 2018-19 season set a record-low for losses. Prior to the season, a JSU team had never finished a year with single-digits in the loss column.  In 2017-18, JSU scored a then-record 23 wins with Wade’s guidance. The Gamecocks qualified for their second national postseason tournament with a berth in the College Basketball Invitational. Jax State claimed wins over Canisius and Central Arkansas in the first and quarterfinal rounds, respectively, en route to its first ever wins in a major postseason tournament.  His first season at Jacksonville State saw the program earn its first Division I title, first appearance in the NCAA Tournament and first 20-win season since 2003. After being picked dead-last in the OVC Preseason Poll, the Gamecocks rattled off consecutive wins over Southeast Missouri, Belmont and UT Martin as the No. 4 seed to win the OVC Championships title. JSU went on to play Louisville in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.  Prior to OCU, Wade was Harper’s assistant at Kentucky Wesleyan, which won the 2001 NCAA Division II championship, reached four national championship games, won three regular-season Great Lakes Valley Conference crowns, three conference tournament titles and posted four 30-win seasons in six years. Kentucky Wesleyan went 161-24 during Wade's tenure as an assistant.  Wade has coached as an assistant at OCU, Kentucky Wesleyan, Missouri State, Murray State, South Alabama and St. Catherine College in Kentucky. He began his coaching career at Hopkinsville University Heights Academy in Kentucky, where he directed the team to the Class A state championship in 1991.  Wade has been a part of three NCAA Tournament teams. At South Alabama, Wade aided in winning two Sun Belt Conference championships and two NCAA Tournament berths working as an assistant coach for Bill Musselman and Bob Weltich. Wade was also part of an Ohio Valley Conference championship team at Murray State.  A native of Hopkinsville, Ky., Wade was an all-state player at Hopkinsville High School as a senior in 1975. He played basketball at Murray State his freshman and sophomore seasons and transferred to Southeast Missouri State for his junior and senior years. His basketball career continued by playing professionally in Argentina for three years and one season in Europe before entering the coaching ranks.  Wade earned a bachelor's degree in physical education from Southeast Missouri State in 1992.

Special Guest: Kendall Dexter

Kendall started in the mortgage business in 1997 at the age of 20.  Attended Southern Nazarene University at the time and got a part time job with The Associates Financial Services making $9.50 per hour plus some production bonus.   At the time minimum wage was 4.25 so 9.50 was amazing!  Did that for 6 months and dominated to the point that they offered me a full time job at $28,500 per year plus some bonus and I was rich!  With my foot firmly wedged in the door of what I wanted to do I removed college from my life and proceeded with my career.  Switched employment to Banc One Financial in May 1999.  They shut down 18 months later and I went to work for my bosses in the brokering arena.  Did that until August 2002 when it was apparent I did not need to split my checks with them any longer and I started my own company.  23 years in the business at the age of 43.  I always tell people I’m a one trick pony but it’s a good trick!  Other notable facts:  OU fan, Thunder, Bears, Cubs.  Used to own a limo that we made into the OU limo and took to games.   Made the front page of the paper with the limo in 2003ish during OU Texas week.  12 year old son.  From 2009 – 2012 we officed downtown and volunteered at the homeless shelter down there but no real community service since then.
