Emory & Henry College head women’s basketball coach Jaclyn Dickens is pleased to announce the hiring of a pair of assistant coaches. Kyle Sensabaugh and Antwan VanBuren joined the Wasps’ staff six weeks ago in conjunction with the start of the season. Sensabaugh and VanBuren previously coached together on the E&H men’s basketball staff.
“We are very fortunate to have added Kyle and Antwan to our staff,” said Dickens. “They bring with them a strong basketball knowledge. Both have a passion for Emory & Henry and have the type of character that will help us continue to develop and grow our team culture.”
Sensabaugh was a two-year player for the Wasps and spent a year and a half as an assistant under former head coach David Willson. He has been a member of the coaching staff at Chilhowie High School and currently works full-time as the director of housing at People Incorporated in Abingdon, Virginia.
“Kyle has a very high basketball IQ and brings great ideas and advice in practice and games,” said Dickens. “His attention to detail is a great asset to have. He cares deeply about the success of Emory & Henry and the basketball program.”
VanBuren spent two years with the Wasps from 2012-14, serving as associate head coach and recruiting coordinator. VanBuren also spent time as a coach at nearby Patrick Henry High School. He currently serves as a family services specialist for the Washington County Department of Social Services.
“Antwan brings energy and a positive attitude to our team,” said Dickens. “His ability to develop and relate to players is a great addition and plays a big role in the development of our student-athletes.”
The Emory & Henry Women’s Basketball team has started the season strong with a 7-1 overall record and a 2-0 mark in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. The Wasps are currently receiving votes in the D3hoops.com Top 25 poll.
