BOSTON, Mass.—After a pair of tight non-conference wins last week, Emmanuel College women's basketball head coach Andy Yosinoff has been named the WHoopDirt.com Division III Coach of the Week presented by Pivot Analysis, WHoopDirt.com announced on Tuesday morning.
Yosinoff coached the Saints to a pair of hard-fought road victories over No. 1 Amherst College (60-55) and MIT (64-59).
The Saints began the week by traveling to take on No. 1 Amherst, who headed into the matchup without a loss on the season. Using an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter, Emmanuel came away with a huge 60-55 win. This was the program's second-ever win over the top team in the country, with the first coming over Bowdoin in 2005.
Riding the momentum from this historic victory, the Saints came back from a halftime deficit and knocked off MIT by a score of 64-59. The victory improved Emmanuel to 5-3 on the season, and they will start second semester action on December 29th after a loss to Rhode Island College last night.
Yosinoff is the second NCAA Division III coach from New England to be recognized this season, joining UMass Boston Head Coach Kris Baugh who earned the Coach of the Week in the Week 2 report after Baugh's Beacons upset Emmanuel when they were ranked No. 25 in the nation, 84-79.
The Saints wrap the first semester with a 5-4 record and are now idle until late December when they travel to Las Vegas, Nevada for the D3Hoops.com Classic.
