HEAD COACH MARK MONTGOMERY

“At NIU, we are fortunate to be a part of a community that encourages our students to challenge themselves and learn from one another in all aspects of life. We create this same type of environment for our men’s basketball student-athletes and know that what they learn today, no matter how challenging, will make them and their teammates better individuals. Your support makes a difference – thank you!”

TOP PRIORITIES

  1. Cost of Attendance - Through NCAA legislation, institutions can now include funds towards covering the cost of attendance gap for student-athletes on an athletic scholarship. The Cost of Attendance gap is provided to cover a student-athlete’s additional reasonable expenses related to attending college, such as transportation, technology, clothing, laundry, and personal items. NIU Athletics is committed to funding Cost of Attendance for all student-athletes, providing a student-athlete experience that is second to none.

  2. Video Room - A video room is integral to the success of our program as watching, reviewing and preparing from our team’s performance and the opposing team’s tactics. Having a space like this directly impacts our student-athletes in providing a classroom-like experience to which they are able to study and learn the game whether as a team or through one-on-ones.


  3. Chartered Flights to Away Competition - Traveling to competition by air instead of bus reduces the length of a trip and allows our student-athletes to efficiently attend classes, study groups and other outside activities.


  4. Nutritional Meals - Due to new NCAA legislation, we have the opportunity to feed our student-athletes more frequently, directly impacting their nutritional goals and on-court performance. Nutritional eating plans are essential for our student-athletes to train and compete at the highest level.


  5. Student-Athlete Training Equipment - To be among the elite in the conference and the country, we must update our training equipment and give our student-athletes the best competitive advantage possible.
