The 2013 team was one of the most successful teams in the nation, finishing with a 23-5 overall record and tying for the best ODAC record at 14-2. The Tigers earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament and hosted Cabrini College in the First Round. H-SC ranked second in the nation in scoring margin (+18.6), sixth in assists per game (17.5), eighth in field goal percentage (49.7), and 15th in scoring offense (81.5).

Hampden-Sydney played on national television in 2015 when the Tigers defeated Coast Guard Academy in Puerto Rico for the Armed Forces Classic on ESPNU and WatchESPN. The Tigers continued their impressive travel schedule later in the year as they also played in the prestigious Classic in Las Vegas then headed to California to play Division I UC Irvine.

Dee Vick Family In 2011-12, the Tigers went 19-8 and went 11-5 in the ODAC, finishing in a tie for third while advancing to the ODAC Tournament semifinals. Hampden-Sydney defeated top-25 ranked Randolph-Macon and set a school single-game record for points with 140 against Patrick Henry. In 2010-11, H-SC recorded wins over #6 Virginia Wesleyan and #19 Ferrum College.

The Raleigh, NC, native played four years of basketball at Hampden-Sydney under Hall of Fame coach Tony Shaver, starting three seasons at shooting guard. Vick helped the Tigers to a combined record of 79-31 (.718) during his four-year career, including a pair of ODAC championships and two appearances in the NCAA Sweet 16.

Following his graduation, Vick teamed up with Shaver in the coaching ranks and led the Tigers to an astounding 118-28 (.808) record, four NCAA Tournament berths, and an appearance in the NCAA National Championship game in 1999, where the 29-3 Tigers ultimately fell to Wisconsin-Platteville in an epic, double-overtime affair.

In 1999-2000, he left Hampden-Sydney and spent two years as an assistant at East Carolina University. In 2001-2002, Vick served as a special assistant to Dave Odom at the University of South Carolina, the same season that the Gamecocks advanced to the championship game of the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). Following that season, Vick left for an assistant position at the College of Charleston, where he helped guide the Cougars to a 25-8 record and berth in the NIT in 2002-2003.

Vick joined his former college coach at William and Mary in 2003-04 and was a vital asset to the recent rise of the Tribe basketball program. In his final season, William and Mary narrowly missed the first Colonial Athletic Association title in program history, advancing to the CAA title game for the first time ever before falling to George Mason.

Vick and his wife, Krissy, have two daughters, Ellie and Sallie and a son, Ran.
