Karen Barefoot To Coach UNCW WBB?
It appears that current ODU women's basketball coach and former Elon coach may be moving to UNCW to coach the women's team there.

Wow. All things considered that would be a very solid hire.

Just a question, and i don't mean it to be-rate our woman's hoops, but Wouldn't ODU be considered a better woman's job? Bigger conference, they have some history of being a woman's hoops powerhouse. Admittedly i don't follow it closely, but on the surface, that's what i see.

I read that CAA had a higher RPI than CUSA last year. Plus, Barefoot is in the last year of her contract at ODU and they decided not to give her an extension.

I just glanced at RPI, CUSA had some really bad bottom dwellers that pulled them down. Regardless if they did not re-new her contract, kudos to us jumping at the chance.

Doesn't matter really whether the CAA or CUSA is a better conference. This is a tough situation to walk into, so we're lucky to get someone of this caliber here.

That being said we DO spend $1.3M on Women's Bball (double what we spend on Baseball) so there's no reason or excuse for why we can't have success.

Another important hire for Jimmy Bass and, at least on first impression, he seems to have nailed it.

Not real excited about hiring a coach that was basically fired from ODU and not exactly a great resume overall. Retread hire is what it looks like.

Considering where we are, it's a good hire to get someone with a career winning record and experience.

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.
