Thirteen Women Strong

Robert K. Wallace

University Press of Kentucky

Some of the Northern Kentucky University women's basketball team's on-court success could be traced to their off-court initiatives: negotiating the later arrival on game day and the time to themselves in the locker room. Getting the heartfelt poem from Angela Healy when they needed it most, seeing the coach when things needed to be clarified. All these things had helped the team get to where they were. They had stayed together and played themselves back into contention for both the conference championship and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament. As an assistant coach, Matt Schmidt had to attend closely to what was happening both on and off the court. One of his informal roles was working with the cocaptains to keep the necessary information flowing between the players and the head coach. Karmen Graham said that Coach listened and responded to whoever went into the office. Coach Nancy Winstel did value such conversations with her players.
