Not sure if you all saw this, but the women’s program took a huge step forward with the new HC. The article is below, watch the YouTube interview. Exciting times ahead!

Orr really pulled out a hell of hire on this one! Campbell was A high major HC waiting to happen.

I was unaware that Harkleroad was gone. I would have been more comfortable with the hire of Sherri Murrell or Gillian d'Hondt, though....

Agreed, very impressive hire. We'll see how our atrocious facilities impacts Campbell's rebuild efforts.

Imagine the utter shock of seeing Sac State’s facilities compared to Oregon’s lol...

Kadeezy: You think this might be a spur to FINALLY getting a facilities upgrade? This mix of using that junior high gym and the Memorial Auditorium (also quite cramped, and with other issues) has GOT to go....

Golden 1 is always there for use. Not sure why both MBB and WBB haven't used it more to be honest. Probably harder to justify for WBB, but a game or 2 there would certainly benefit the program.

True that, SD, but the unfamiliarity (unless it were to be a "regular" home, which would not be feasible because the Kings would have scheduling priority) might mitigate any effects of a higher gate. Also, if COVID lasts much longer (yes, I know we're supposed to "officially" re-open the economy 15 JUN, but there have been statements from the Dictator indicating that he might backtrack that), given that the State Legislature has been using Golden 1 to facilitate social distancing between legislators and staff, I highly doubt that we'd get much traction in using it. Plus, the rent fees (given those bogus luxury suites) might well be prohibitive. I'd much rather have a 10K arena on or near campus that exclusively belongs to our team. But as a one-off (i.e. somehow we get a team like Gonzaga to actually complete a home-and-home contract without buying their way out of the return trip), it would be a nice deal if we could afford it....

Wrong mentality. The purpose of using Golden 1 is to boost the profile of the program(s) to help with recruiting, scheduling, and outreach. I doubt there is any hope of covering the rental fees associated with Golden 1 so the admin should probably go in thinking of it as an added expenditure. If used, it would probably have to be a double header with MBB to get more bang for the buck.

A first ever Big Sky basketball title for Sac State would be a nice goal for Coach Campbell and his staff and players.

Then maybe a first ever Sac State basketball appearance in the NCAA Division I tourney would be another nice goal..

And filling tiny Hornet Gym with fans for weekend contests at least might be a good goal to shoot for as well.

Coach Campbell has been part of the huge growth of women's basketball in the Pac 12 conference over the past 5 to 10 years.

Really looking forward to seeing what he and his staff and players can generate this comeing season and beyond.

If you follow the WBB social media accounts - it’s clear that this staff is not messing around. They are bringing in key transfers and overseas players that will have an immediate impact.

It’s early, but don’t be surprised if Campbell is only around for 2-3 years and then on to a Pac-12 gig after turning things around.
