MUNCIE, Ind. -- Jauwan Scaife, who completed his playing career with the Ball State men’s basketball team last year, will serve as a graduate student manager for the Cardinals this season.

Scaife, who is working on his master’s degree in physical education with a coaching specialization, will oversee Ball State’s crew of managers and assist with office management duties.

“I got to know Jauwan in my first few months on the job,” Ball State first-year head coach James Whitford said. “I was extraordinarily impressed with his work ethic and character. I figured out very quickly that he is a great role model for our players who has earned respect through his performance on the court and his attitude away from it. He has been a tremendous asset for our community, and he will be a great coach in the future.”

Scaife ended his playing career as Ball State’s all-time leader in career 3-pointers with 203. He also ranks among the top 15 in school history in career points (1,326), minutes played (3,368), games started (93) and free throw percentage (.783).

The local product from Muncie Central High School had a breakout senior season in 2012-13, earning second-team all-conference honors and leading a late-season surge for the Cardinals. He averaged a career-high 16.6 points per game and ranked second in the Mid-American Conference with 19.9 points per game in league play.

Scaife earned his bachelor’s degree in sport administration in three years and was enrolled in graduate school during his senior season.
