    Women’s Basketball Coach Resigns

    Stony Brook Seawolves Women’s Basketball Head Coach Maura McHugh resigned on June 6, citing personal reasons. Assistant Coach Michele Cherry will replace her.

    McHugh coached the team for three years. While brief, her tenure was fruitful, with an NIT appearance in 2006. This year, the team finished the regular season in 2nd place in the America East Conference, and senior Mykeema Ford was named the conference’s Player of the Year, as well as being one of two SB Female Athletes of the Year.

    Cherry played basketball for Oregon state from 1987-1988, and then played from 1989-1992 for Arizona State, under McHugh. She then became an assistant coach with the team. She would later go on to work as an assistant coach with an American Basketball League (now defunct) team, followed by the WNBA’s Sacramento Monarchs.
