Good that Candyce Bingham is sticking around.

A mainstay on the University of Louisville women’s basketball team that reached the national championship game in 2009, Bingham has been selected as head coach of the girls team at Fern Creek High School.

Candyce left for a while, you know, orginally signing with Xavier University in Cincinnati before returning two years later to finish her college days at U of L.

What she lacked in aggressiveness, she made up for with talent, averaging 12.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game during a magical senior season.

She succeeds Michelle Fries, who posted a 94-76 record in six seasons at Fern Creek.

One thought on “Candyce Bingham to prep coaching ranks”
  1. Congrats to Candyce. Have to disagree about her lack of aggressive, though…Charlie. She was asked by Coach Walz to go to the “4” or power forward her final two years and battled against larger opponents almost every night. Candyce’s ability to crash the boards, either for put backs or driving to the hoop off McCoughtry or Dez Byrd feeds, opened up the middle for Angel to manuever and operate.

    No fear or lack of aggresssiveness in #13. A warrior, who was still battling in Puerto Rico up to two weeks ago before coming home to take the Fern Creek job.

    Ask any of the front line players from Georgetown, Syracuse, Connecticut or Notre Dame from those two seasons and I think you’ll find that C.B. comes out highly respected as a blue collar worker who made life
    difficult for an opponent in paint.
