Leah Truncale named Binghamton assistant women's basketball coach

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton women's basketball program has announced the hiring of Leah Truncale as its new assistant coach. She joins a staff that includes second-year head coach Nicole Scholl, fifth-year assistant Bernitha Johnson and second-year assistant Bet Naumovski.

Truncale is a 2002 graduate of Binghamton, where she has a stellar four-year career. She is currently ranked third all-time with 1,341 career points, and first with 978 rebounds as well as 236 blocks. During Truncale's four years on the squad, Binghamton went 94-22, won the 1999 New England College Conference title as well as both the 2000 and 2001 ECAC Division II championships.

"It's exciting to have Leah back in Binghamton," Scholl said. "She is one of the best post players to come through our program in the 10 years that I have been here and I am looking forward to having her work with our post players. Her recent international experience and her New York background will also be beneficial for recruiting. Leah will be a great role model for our student-athletes and is a great fit with our staff."

Following her playing career, Truncale spent two years as a coach with the Bearcats. She was a graduate assistant coach during the 2003-04 season and a full-time assistant during the 2004-05 campaign.

From 2005-08, Truncale was a member of the Meteors Basketball Club in Dublin, Ireland. She was voted the team MVP and lead the Meteors in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals. For the past year, Truncale was a member of the Killester Basketball Club (also based in Dublin, Ireland). Once again, she led her team in scoring, rebounding, blocks and steals.
