Longtime BC women’s basketball coach Cathy Inglese died Wednesday. She had suffered a brain injury last week after falling.
Inglese built and maintained one of BC Women's Basketball longest periods of success during the '90s and early '00s. Like her colleagues of that time who weren't hired by Defillippo, she was out the minute the program ebbed. And like some of the other misguided changes, the program has not been the same since she left.
Inglese was only 60 and had recently been an assistant at Hofstra. Condolences to her family. Many former players still hold her in high regard and are clearly saddened by her passing.
