Miner Men's Basketball Camps
Assistant CoachMarques Baldwin
Marques Baldwin begins his third season as the Miners' assistant coach as he has helped lead the Miners to one of their most productive seasons in history during his tenure.
The Miners averaged 88.6 points per game in the 2013-14 season, the second-highest single season average in school history and fifth-best mark in NCAA Division II. S&T cleared the 100-point mark on seven occasions, the most occurances of that mark in 22 seasons. A year ago, the Miners cleared the 100-point mark four times and averaged 80.9 points per contest.
Before coming to Missouri S&T, Baldwin served as an assistant coach for one season at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo.
“I like that Coach Baldwin is from a well-coached, successful system under Matt Mitchell at Westminster,” said Miner head coach Jim Glash. “Another plus is that several of our current players have worked out with and played against Marques and each expressed their respect for his talents during the hiring process. In addition, having played and coached in Missouri, Marques has already established strong ties to many high school and junior college coaches in the state which is a huge benefit in recruiting.”
During Baldwin’s season on the Blue Jays’ staff in 2012-13, they finished with a record of 19-7 and ended up in a tie for second in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with a 12-4 record. He joined Westminster’s staff prior to last season after spending two seasons as the head coach at Fulton High School.
He was an assistant coach at Fulton for one season prior to becoming the head coach in the spring of 2010 and also served as an assistant at Blue Valley North High School in Overland Park, Kan.
A native of Waynesville, Mo., Baldwin played collegiately at Mineral Area College and at Lubbock Christian University. At LCU, Baldwin averaged 9.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and a steal per game in 58 games played during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. He shot close to 50 percent from the field and better than 34 percent from three-point range.
“As a player, Marques was a multi-dimensional individual and that has carried over to his coaching,” Glash said. “He will be able to work with both the guards and the post players and I’ll be able to rely heavily on those abilities. In addition to his coaching, he has a great, enthusiastic personality and will fit in extremely well with the campus and community.”
