Women's basketball coaching search: Notre Dame assistant Niele Ivey

Here is another great one!
Katie Smith
College - Ohio State
Katie Smith enters her first season as an assistant coach with the New York Liberty.
Smith spent the 2013 season - her final in the WNBA - with the Liberty, reuniting with Bill Laimbeer who she won two titles with as a member of the Detroit Shock (now Tulsa). She retired after the 2013 campaign, finishing her 17-year playing career as the all-time leading scorer in women’s professional basketball and second in WNBA history.

A 15-year veteran of the WNBA, Smith was a seven-time All-Star and two-time First Team All-WNBA selection. She won WNBA Championships in 2006 and 2008 with the Shock, and in 2011 was voted one of the Top 15 Players in WNBA history. She ranks first in the WNBA in both three-point field goals made (906) and attempted (2,466), second in career points (6,452), fourth in free throws made (1,440) and 10th in all-time assists (1,258).

Smith is the all-time leading scorer in the history of U.S. women’s professional basketball (ABL & WNBA) with 7,885 career points. Smith signed with the WNBA in 1999, joining Minnesota after a two-year stint in the ABL. Her success also extended to the international level, having won three Olympic Gold Medals in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Smith spent several seasons on the women’s basketball staff at her alma mater Ohio State University.

Jayhawks blow 14-point first-half lead in Sunflower Showdown

Please let me clarify that I think Doctor Zenger is the best for KU. I know Doctor Zenger is at every game that the men are home. I’m very frustrated with BBall! I have been a fan before Coach Washington and I need to vent and it shouldn’t be at him. I know it is his decision not ours, but it’s hard. Plus I would like to know if everyone that has posted this time go to the women’s game. I’m new at this and I don’t mean to offend anyone just sad for our team.

I think all through this it shows that Doctor Zenger doesn't care about Women's Basketball. I was excited to think when he came things would turn around for our team. I love our girls, but they are missing something. I understand passion for the game, but sometimes they just don't have it. I'm a very sad fan!

KU women fall to Oklahoma, 69-57

Mick, I agree! I don't think anything will change and I'm a season ticket holder. We have some talent, but they are not improving at all. Year and Year
