    Bio on Summey


    Mike Summey joined head coach Michael Huger and the Bowling Green men's basketball coaching staff in April of 2015, after serving as the Associate Head Coach at Saint Francis (Pa.) for two seasons. Summey enters his fifth season with the program in 2019-20.

    At BGSU, Coach Summey works day-to-day in the development of the players. He also plays a big role in opponent scouting and off-campus recruiting, among other duties.

    Summey has helped develop several All-Conference players in his time at Bowling Green. Summey worked extensively with forward Demajeo Wiggins over his career at BGSU. Wiggins gives Summey a huge share of the credit for the big man's immensely improved free throw stroke. Under Summey's guidance, Wiggins' free throw numbers skyrocketed. After shooting 37.9 percent as a freshman, Wiggins finished his career with a 63.2 percentage.

    Wiggins was named Second Team All-MAC as a junior and senior, and finished his career as only the third player in school history joining legends Nate Thurmond and Cornelius Cash with over 1,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.

    Summey has also aided in the development of Justin Turner and Dylan Frye two of the more accomplished BGSU guards in the program's recent history. Turner, who was named First Team All-MAC in 2018-19, became the first player in school history to eclipse 1,000 career points before reaching junior-year eligibility. Frye, a 1,000-point scorer in his own right, is on pace to shatter Bowling Green's all-time three-point field goals record.

    Bowling Green experienced historic success in Summey's most-recent season at BGSU. In 2018-19, after the league's preseason poll picked the Falcons to finish last in the MAC, Bowling Green advanced to its first MAC Championship Game appearance in 17 years. BGSU, which earned an automatic berth to the league quarterfinals for the first time in a decade, won games over Ball State and Northern Illinois in Cleveland to advance to the MAC title game for just the fourth time in school history.

    Also in 2018-19, the Falcons upset No. 18 Buffalo, 92-88, in front of a record-breaking crowd of 5,000 fans at the Stroh Center. BGSU's win helped the Falcons post a 12-6 conference record on the season, marking just the seventh time in school history that BGSU won 12-plus league games in a single season.

    In Summey's third season at BGSU in 2017-18, Bowling Green recorded its first season of .500 or better since 2014-15, as the Falcons went 16-16. The Falcons had a number of standouts, including a Second Team All-MAC selection in Wiggins, as well as Turner, who scored 492 points to break the school's freshman scoring record.

    In 2016-17, Summey's second on the BGSU sidelines, Bowling Green saw a two-win conference improvement. Bowling Green's seven MAC victories included a number of signature wins. In front of a raucous Stroh Center, the Falcons defeated arch-rival Toledo in double overtime by a score of 104-100. The win, which snapped a six-game losing streak to the Rockets, was BGSU's first over Toledo since February 11, 2012.

    Bowling Green also earned wins over the MAC's regular-season champs in Akron, and the 2017 MAC Tournament Champions Kent State. The Kent State win came on the road in overtime, thanks to a tip-in from Wiggins with 1.3 seconds left on the clock. The Akron win, which was secured thanks to a pair of Wes Alcegaire free throws with 2.4 seconds left, snapped Akron's 17-game winning streak over the Falcons.

    The 66-65 victory over Akron was Bowling Green's first over the Zips since March 1, 2009. The victory was also the Falcons' first in Bowling Green, Ohio over Akron since Jan. 28, 2003. Prior to the contest, Akron had won 12-straight games over the Falcons in Bowling Green.

    In 2015-16, Summey's first year at BGSU, the Falcons registered 16 wins overall on the season. The Falcons also recorded a season-high six-game winning streak from Nov. 22 to Dec. 8, which marked the longest winning streak for a BGSU team since the 2008-09 season. In 2018-19, the Falcons surpassed that mark by experiencing a 10-game winning streak, which led to a 6-0 start to MAC play.

    BGSU picked up wins over No. 5 Kent State and No. 4 Central Michigan over the first two rounds of the 2016 MAC Men's Basketball Championship Tournament to advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2009.

    Summey began his second stint on Saint Francis University (Pa.) men's basketball coaching staff in May of 2013, having served four seasons as an assistant coach for the Red Flash from 1999-2003.

    In his second stint at SFU, Summey helped guide the Red Flash to 26 wins over his two seasons back on the sidelines from 2013-15 and earn a 2015 CollegeInsider.com Tournament (CIT) bid in which the Flash fell at home to Bowling Green, 67-64, in the first round.

    Not only did the Red Flash host their first postseason tournament game since 1991 in 2014-15, but Saint Francis also posted its first winning regular season in 10 years and earned victories over America East regular-season champion Albany, Duquesne and Big Ten-member Rutgers. The victory for the Flash over the Dukes was the first since 1990, and the Flash became the first-ever Northeast Conference team to defeat a Big Ten team when it won at Rutgers on Dec. 20, 2014.

    Before returning to Saint Francis (Pa.), Summey served as Director of Basketball Operations with the Miami Hurricanes for four years from 2009-13, where he oversaw the day-to-day administrative operations of the program. There he worked under head coach Jim Larraaga and with Coach Huger from 2011-13.

    Summey has an extensive coaching background, including serving as the head coach at Bethany College (W. Va.) during the 2008-09 season and two years as the assistant head coach at North Florida from 2006-08, aiding in the Ospreys' transition to NCAA Division I and the Atlantic Sun Conference.

    As the head coach for Division III Bethany in 2008-09, the Bison went 17-12 and finished second in the Presidents' Athletic Conference with a 9-3 mark en route to a PAC championship game berth and an ECAC South Region Tournament invitation. Despite losing four starters, Summey posted the best record in Bethany history for a first-year head coach.

    At UNF from 2006-08, he coordinated the recruiting efforts, compiled scouting reports on the opponents and served as the camp director for the UNF team and individual camps.

    Prior to joining the UNF staff, Summey served for two years as an assistant coach at The Citadel from 2004-06. In his first season, he worked with perimeter players and helped Matt Davis lead the Southern Conference in three-point percentage (.471), while his work with the post players the next season was pivotal in J'mel Everhart becoming just the second Bulldog to earn Southern Conference All-Tournament Team honors.

    Summey's career has also included a stop at Queens University in Charlotte, N.C. as the top assistant in 2003-04 in which the Royals went 21-8 overall and 14-4 in the Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference (CVAC). There Summey coached Spencer Ross who was tabbed the Sporting News Division II National Player of the Year, a First-Team All-American selection, a Daktronics All-Region Second-Team member, a NABC DII East All-District honoree, the CVAC Conference Player of the Year and a CVAC First-Team All-Conference member. That season, Summey also coached Moustapha Diouf, who was named to the CVAC All-Conference Second-Team and the CVAC Conference All-Tournament Team.

    A native of Hickory, N.C., Summey earned a degree in political science from NC State in 1997. As a student, he served as the head manager as a senior and then as graduate manager for two years, assisting with then-head coach Herb Sendek's transition to the Wolfpack.
