WBB: Donna Finnie announces coaching staff promotions

HOUSTON – HBU Women’s Basketball Head Coach Donna Finnie announced two promotions to its coaching staff on Thursday afternoon.

Becca Allison was promoted to associate head coach while Taylor Stahly was promoted to Recruitment Coordinator.

“Becca truly deserves this promotion to Associate Head Coach. I’ve seen her grow from a very promising 13-year-old basketball player, to a great college and international player, to a promising young coach to now a great role model and coach for our young ladies,” Finnie said. “Becca has always understood the game but has grown tremendously as a coach over the past two years and this promotion reflects that and her loyalty to this program.”

The promotion for Allison follows his win as the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Division I Assistant Coach of the Year.

“Taylor is truly a student of the game, and I have been so impressed with her passion for the game and our players. She has taken on additional responsibilities over the past two years and so that she can grow and develop as as a coach, she will be leading as the recruiting coordinator. I truly believe that Taylor will be an incredible head coach and I want to give her every opportunity to achieve that by preparing her in all aspects of this profession,” said Finnie: “She will be a fantastic recruiting coordinator because she does everything she can and really believes in our program and embodies what we stand for.”

After those promotions, the Huskies will look to defend their Southland Conference regular season championship in the 2022-23 season.
