Bet Naumovski hired as assistant women's basketball coach
N.Y.-- The Binghamton women's basketball team has announced the
hiring of Bet Naumovski as an assistant coach. She arrives
from Ontario, where she spent over a decade coaching at both
the college and club levels.
From 2005-07, Naumovski was the head coach of the Toronto-Five
O AAU team. She led her squad to the Ontario Cup quarterfinals
in 2006 and 2007. The previous two summers, she was the head
coach for the Ontario Under-17 team.
At the college
level, Naumovski was an assistant coach with the University of
Toronto from 1999-03. In 2000, that program was nationally ranked
among the Top 10 in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports system.
Before arriving at the University of Toronto, Naumovski was an
assistant coach at the University of Geulph.
Namovski has been the Program Director for the Mississauga Minor
Basketball Association. It is the largest basketball club in
Ontario, offering leagues, camps, tournaments and competitive
teams for over 2000 members.
Bet was a perfect fit all the way around," first-year
head coach Nicole Scholl said. "She has a wide range
of experience as both an assistant and head coach and understands
what it means to be part of a team. She will be a huge asset
when it comes to player development and will take a major part
on the defensive side of the court. Bet will also be instrumental
in recruiting throughout Canada and Ohio."
A 1998 graduate
of York University (located in Canada), Namovski earned her bachelors
degree in 1998. Three years later, she earned her masters
degree, also at York University.
With Naumovski on board, Scholl has completed her coaching staff,
which also includes fourth year assistant Bernitha Johnson
(who was elevated to recruiting coordinator in June) and
first-year assistant Denique Graves.
