Dartmouth adds Fisher as Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach

Linda Cimino, Dartmouth’s Gail Koziara Boudreaux ’82 and Family Head Coach of Women’s Basketball, has announced the hiring of Alyssa Fisher as an assistant coach. Fisher joins Cimino, along with fellow assistants Robert Isme and Anh-Dao Tran, to lead the Big Green in the 2024-25 season.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Alyssa to our staff,” Cimino said. “Having coached Alyssa for four years at St. Francis Brooklyn, I know firsthand her work ethic and passion for the game. She is as hard working and loyal as they come. She’s mature beyond her years and I’m excited to reunite with her on the court. She’s one of the best shooters and defenders I’ve ever coached, and she will be a huge addition to our staff working with the guards. She was instrumental in our rebuild in Brooklyn and her leadership as a player will transfer well into her coaching career.”

Fisher joins the Big Green after spending the past season playing at Loyola Chicago in the Atlantic 10 Conference (A-10). At Loyola, she started all 31 games for the Ramblers and led the team in 3-pointers made (49), free throws made (110), steals (49) and points per game (13.5). Fisher ranked 11th in the A-10 in steals per game (1.5) and points per game (13.5).

Fisher had a stellar four-year career at St. Francis Brooklyn, where she led the Terriers for two seasons as team captain. A four-year starter, she averaged 10.7 points throughout her career, including a team best 16.1 points per a game as a senior. She logged 22 double-digit performances and was a nine-time Northeast Conference Player of the Week. In 2021, she was a key part of the Terriers’ first ever win over a Power Five program, helping defeat Big Ten opponent Michigan State. In that same season, she was named MVP of the Battle of Brooklyn. Fisher was named the conference’s Most Improved Player as a senior, in addition to a First Team All-NEC honor and a Scholar Athlete of the Year award.

Off the court, Fisher participated in the prestigious Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s “So You Want To Be A Coach” program at the 2024 Final Four in Cleveland. She was a strength and conditioning coach intern at St. Francis Brooklyn in 2022-2023 and took part in many community service events, including the Tunnel to Towers 5K in New York.

A Baton Rouge, Louisiana native, Fisher earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science in 2022 as well as a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management in 2023, both from St. Francis Brooklyn.  She then earned her MBA from Loyola Chicago in 2024.
