Brian Morehouse an Allstar Coach

Honored as the NCAA Division III women's basketball coach of the year, Hope's Brian Morehouse will be on the sidelines in Boston, Mass. Saturday (April 1)  as part of the coaching staff at the WBCA Night of Allstars. The nation's top women's basketball players will be partcipating in the game which is part of the national convention of the Women's Basketball Coaches of America and the NCAA Division I Final Four tournament.

Morehouse and the national winners from the other NCAA and NAIA divisions will be honored at the RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA National Coach of the Year Luncheon presented by AstraZeneca on Tuesday, April 4. 

Founded in 1981, the WBCA promotes women's basketball by unifying coaches at all levels to develop a reputable identity for the sport and to foster and promote the development of the game as an amateur sport for women and girls.

Coach Morehouse's Flying Dutch captured the NCAA Division III national championship last month. The team ended the season with a 30-game winning streak highlighted by the championship game victory over Southern Maine University. Hope's 33-1 record set a school and Division III record for victories in a season.
