The United States Sports Academy has always and continues to strive to meet its mission of making contributions to the field of sport by preparing men and women for the profession of sport. The spot light has shined on the Academy because the Head women’s basketball coach at Syracuse University is an alumni. Coach Quentin Hillsman. http://cuse.com/coaches.aspx?rc=1124&path=wbasket
Under the guidance of coach Hillsman the 2015/2016 women’s basketball team are 29-7 and on a historic run as they have won their way into the programs first Final Four by beating the University of Tennessee this past weekend 89-67. The Final Four dance for the orange continues in Indianapolis, IN on April 3, 2016, they will face off against the seventh seeded Washington Huskies.
As accomplished and successful coach Hillsman is we wish him continued success in the Final Four and future; we hope that he continues to apply the lessons to his coaching that he learned while studying here at the United States Sports Academy. You are what the Academy is all about.
