KB is a quality person and she has a lot of the intangibles you look for in a coach. Things just never seemed to fully come together for her at ODU. If she ends up at UNCW I am sure that she will lead your WBB to success.

The expectations at ODU are very different than they are here. Given what she is inheriting, this seems like a really good hire. Then again, I don't know much about WBB.

They should've just talked about taking the program away as opposed to all the programs that are going to be back up on the chopping block again within the next year....sad.

Title IX would prevent that from ever happening. Only way WBB would go away is if we flipped our campus from 65:35 women:men to 35:65. It's a fully funded sport and is the 2nd safest program of all the programs we offer after Men's Basketball. Sad to say, but Baseball would have to go before we got rid of Women's Basketball.

And who would want ANY of that??

Im pretty sure all NCAA D1 conferences require women's basketball as well. The NCAA may even require the sport, Id have to look it up again.

The Southern Conference does not require Women's Basketball. Neither VMI nor The Citadel sponsor the sport. UNCW does not want to go there.

The CUSA is hurting in basketball. It has several schools with impressive men's basketball programs who have forgotten how to win after adding football.

I'm pretty sure that has to do with their classification as military schools but yes UNCW does not want to go there

It might have something to do with the ratio at those school being near 90% male to female.

I think you're right. I almost went to VMI. Less than 200 girls total there.

Mullet is correct. Those schools do not need to have a women's basketball team to comply with Title IX. It would be embarrassing for The Citadel if they had a women's hoops team and they made the NCAA Tournament.
