The University of Cincinnati women’s basketball team has apparently had enough of getting pummeled year in and year out.
Jamelle Elliott, an assistant coach at UConn for 12 years, has been named UC’s new women’s basketball coach. Elliott played on UConn’s first national championship team in 1995 and is known as an outstanding recruiter. She finished her playing career as the school’s second-leading rebounder with 1,054 and 11th-leading scorer (1,387 points). Elliott replaces J. Kelley Hall, who was fired after two seasons at UC.
