TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State women’s basketball associate head coach Cori Close has been named one of 20 semi-finalists for the “Rising Star” of the College Basketball Coaching profession award presented by BasketballScoop.com and ONS Performance.
Close, who just concluded her fifth season working with head coach Sue Semrau, helped lead a Seminole squad that earned a share of the regular-season Atlantic Coast Conference championship with Maryland and reached the NCAA Tournament for a school-record fifth-straight season.
Anyone can vote for the 20 semi-finalists for this award until April 15 when the top 10 vote-getters will be passed on to a panel of coaches that will select the five recipients.
