Fever Star Named Assistant Coach at ASU
Arizona State University has named current Indiana Fever guard Briann January assistant coach. She helped lead ASU to 104 wins, the most in program history in a four-year span, while playing for the Sun Devils. January will continue her professional playing career with Indiana, where she is currently preparing to start her ninth season. The Sun Devils are coming off their fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance as they advanced to the second round of NCAAs where they nearly upset eventual national champion South Carolina on its home floor after taking a one-point lead into the game's final minute. Turner Thorne, who posted her 400th win as ASU's head coach last month, will return for her 21st season and will lead a squad that will look to match the school record of five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and five straight 20-win seasons.
