DUBUQUE, IOWA . . . Loras College women’s basketball head coach Shauna Green will step down from her position effective Friday, September 14, 2007 in order to take an assistant coaching position with the Providence Friars in Providence, Rhode Island. Shauna has been the Duhawks head coach for the past two seasons. Green was also an assistant with the program for three seasons prior to taking over the program. During her time as an assistant she earned her master’s degree from Loras College.

Last season the Duhawks climbed the IIAC standings for the second consecutive year under Green. In her first season as head coach Green’s ladies finished in fourth place, hosted an IIAC tournament game, and played in the semifinals. She followed her rookie campaign with a second place finish in 2006-2007, going 17-10 overall, finishing second in the IIAC (12-4) and made a run all the way to the IIAC title game, eventually falling on the road. She leaves the Fieldhouse with a career record at Loras of 29-25 and also coached All-Region selection Natalie Pucci.

Green, a native of Clinton, Iowa, played college basketball in Buffalo, New York at Canisius College where she was a four-year All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference selection and three-time team MVP, scoring over 2,000 points and pulling down over 900 rebounds. The 2002 degree she earned from Canisius is in business marketing. She returns to the eastern time zone to join the Providence Friars, a NCAA Division I program, competing in the Big East Conference. Providence’s undergraduate enrollment is listed at 3,998.

The Friars won just one game during the 2004-2005 season before current head coach Phil Seymore took over in April of 2005. The team won eight games in his first campaign and 13 games last season, Seymore’s second. Seymore is also a graduate of Canisius College, earning his degree in 1989.

Commenting on her time at Loras, Green expressed her thoughts about the Duhawks recently.

“I have truly enjoyed my time here at Loras and want to thank them for the opportunities that they have given me. This was one of the hardest decisions that I’ve ever had to make and it is because of the people here and my team. I am truly going to miss coaching them and I know that they will have a lot of success this year and in the future.”

Regarding the jump to the NCAA Division I level, Green added, “To be able to coach at the Division I level and in the Big East Conference is an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up. It had to be a perfect situation for me to leave Loras College and I really feel that this is it.”
