The Georgetown Hoyas women's basketball team named top assistant Keith Brown their new head coach on monday according to an article published by Gene Wang on the Washington Post. Former head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy left the team to take the head coach job at Auburn a month ago.
Brown was also the director of recruiting having been a big part of landing players Sugar Rodgers, a first team all-Big East selection last season. Brown hopes that he can continue his recruiting success as the head coach of Georgetown.
The Hoyas are in the midst of the most success in the program's history. Last season, they made the NCAA Tournament for the third consecutive year. Prior to this run, the Hoyas had only been to the Tournament once. The Hoyas finished 23-9, 11-5 in the Big East last season and finished ranked No. 17 in the nation. Brown will have to contend with losing seven players to graduation next season, but if his recruiting pans out, Georgetown will be a team to contend with for the future.
