Courtney Anderson Named DBO at UNH

Head coach Maureen Magarity of the University of New Hampshire women’s basketball team announced the hiring of Courtney Anderson as the director of basketball operations.

A four-year letterwinner at the University of Maine, Anderson graduated in May 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education. She logged 114 games during her collegiate career, leading the Black Bears to a WNIT berth last season with a 23-9 overall record and 14-2 in America East play as the lone senior. Starting in 60 games as a Black Bear, she was a career 76.2 percent free throw shooter and shot 30.0 percent from beyond the arc. In her sophomore season, the guard played in 27 games and started in 23, averaging a career-high 7.1 points on the year.

“We are thrilled to add Courtney to the staff,” said Magarity. “She has tremendous enthusiasm and passion for the game. Her relentless work ethic on the court and familiarity with the America East Conference makes her a perfect fit for the position.”

Anderson was one of 58 chosen to participate in last year’s “So You Want To Be A Coach” program, sponsored by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, a workshop held in conjunction with the Final Four that was located in Tampa, Fla. this past April.

Anderson was a four-time honoree on the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Tabbed as a Maine Scholar-Athlete rising star in her freshman year, she also earned bronze and silver medals as a Maine Scholar Athlete her sophomore and junior year. Anderson was one of 13 new members to be inducted into the All-Maine Women Honor Society, which identifies outstanding women of the rising senior class who exhibit leadership, scholarship and service to the University and campus community. Courtney is the older sister of junior guard Kristen Anderson (Greene, Maine).
