Head women’s basketball coach Stacie Terry is pleased to announce the addition of Sheila Boykin to her staff as a graduate assistant. A four-year letter-winner at LSU (2011-15), Boykin spent two seasons playing professionally in Europe, before spending the last year as an assistant coach at Warren High School (Downey, Calif.).
“I am excited to join the Aztecs’ women’s basketball staff because I strongly believe Coach Stacie and her staff have an incredible ability to make SDSU a successful program, as well as providing these young women with the tools they need to be successful in life after basketball,” Boykin stated.
A Los Angeles native, Boykin was one of the nation’s top high school recruits in 2011. She went on to play in 113 games over four years at LSU, making 42 starts. As a senior, she averaged 5.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. In 2014, she received the Eye of the Tiger Award, which is given out annually to a LSU student-athlete who overcomes adversity in their life to succeed both in the classroom and in competition.
Upon graduating with a degree in mass communications, she embarked on a professional career overseas, playing for Panathlitikos (Greece) and Bayrakli (Turkey). This past season she helped lead Warren High School to a CIF South Section Championship as an assistant coach.
In her role, Boykin will oversee opponent practice coverage, the team photoshoot and coordinate alumni relations and parent outreach. While on staff, Boykin will be working towards a master’s degree in Homeland Security.D1 GA
