KU women’s basketball team adds assistant


Former Murray State guard Alaina Lee has been named assistant women’s basketball director of operations/video coordinator, Kansas University, coach Bonnie Henrickson announced Friday.

Lee replaces Katie Capps, who was promoted to KU’s director of operations.

“We’re very excited to bring someone of Alaina’s caliber to our program,” Henrickson said. “I first met her four years ago, and her passion for young people and the sport of basketball is something that has always stood out to me. Her background in education and her experience coaching at many different levels will be extremely beneficial to the Jayhawk basketball program.”

Lee is the 22nd-leading scorer in Murray State history with 861 points. She was an assistant coach at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, from 2008-10. She also has been coach in the Houston Elite AAU basketball program and as head basketball coach at the E.O. Smith Educational Center, where she also served as a physical education teacher.

Bonnie is grasping at straws to keep the program afloat. Anybody with a brain wouldn't want to attach themselves to her. I predict she'll be out in a year or two at the least.

haha...two years go by from the WNIT run and the WBB team only has one staff member remaining from 2009. Not only does HCBH drive players away she apparently drives staff members away too.

Nothing against Murray State (my KU roommate spent his first two college years there), but not "the leading scorer in Murray State history". The 22nd?? Not the 22nd in UConn history. Murray State !! I'm glad she works well with student athletes, but is that all she brings to the table? Well, welcome to the University. Hope everything works out.

Uh where's the article on Trena Anderson's departure? Hasn't she been with BH since Virginia and yet...Trena was great for the program and I for one would like to know where she's going. Oh well Trena we'll miss you.

All I needed to see was the word 'Houston' to understand this hire...obviously a play to get some elite Texas recruits. It won't work tho...the talent is already here...talent is not the problem!!
