- Categorized in: W-Basketball
Tuscaloosa, AL. – Stillman College Athletic Director Curtis Campbell has announced the hiring of Cassandra Moorer as the College’s new women’s head basketball coach. Coach Moorer brings a wealth of experience to the program, as she was an assistant coach at the University of Alabama (UA) from 1997-2005 and at the University of Houston from 1985-86.
Moorer was drafted by the WNBA in 1996 by the New York Liberty during the inaugural season as a shooting guard. Before being drafted to the WNBA, Moorer played professionally in Europe from 1986-1994.
“I am excited about Coach Moorer joining Stillman athletics. Coach Moorer is excellent with X’s and O’s and game preparation. She understands the importance of academics and she has the coaching demeanor that we value at Stillman,” stated Campbell. “Coach Moorer has contacts at the high school and junior college level that will enable her to recruit both in state and out of state. She brings a good wealth of knowledge and experience to our staff.
Moorer most recently served as Head Varsity Girls Coach at American Christian Academy (ACA) from 2006-2010. While at ACA, Moorer taught physical Education and was responsible for all aspects of the varsity and middle school basketball programs that include budgeting, scheduling and strength & conditioning programs.
“I am extremely excited to join the Stillman family. It’s a great situation with the players coming back next season. We will try to build on what has already been established in this program. I followed the team very closely in latter part of the season and saw how far they advanced in the SIAC tournament falling short in the championship game,” said Coach Moorer. “The team finished very strong and gained a lot of confidence last season. I feel like we have so much to build on for the future, but it can only be done with hard work.”
Prior to her professional career, Moorer played her collegiate basketball at UA. Moorer, who was team captain in 1984, received multiple accolades over her two years at UA including being named: All-American, All-SEC, MVP-SEC Tournament (1984), Leading team scorer, winner of the Eleanor Dudley Copping Award for bringing the most national recognition to a University through athletics, and Alabama’s first All-American in Basketball.
Moorer graduated from the University of Alabama in 1985 where she earned a B.A. in Communication with a minor in Marketing.
