MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) UT Martin has selected UNLV assistant Heath Schroyer to rebuild its men's basketball program that has lost over 20 games each of the last five seasons.
In a Thursday news conference, Schroyer called the Ohio Valley Conference program a "sleeping giant."
"I believe that we're going to compete for championships sooner (rather) than later," Schroyer said. "Is that going to happen in one day? No. But I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe that with my heart and my soul. I believe without a shadow of a doubt that this place can be great. We have a lot of work to do. There are a lot of things that need to be done, but I have a clear vision of where we're going to take this program. I couldn't be more excited, but I also understand that it's a tough challenge."
