O’Boyle announces hiring of Crishna Hill as assistant coach



Stony Brook, N.Y. – Stony Brook University head women’s basketball coach Beth O’Boyle announced today that Crishna Hill has been hired as an assistant coach. Hill joins O’Boyle’s staff after three seasons as an assistant at Buffalo and will be involved with all aspects of the program, including serving as the Seawolves recruiting coordinator.

“I am excited to announce the addition of Crishna to our staff,” O’Boyle said. “She is a tireless worker, outstanding recruiter and her energy and enthusiasm will have a tremendous impact on our program.”

Last season, Hill helped Buffalo make its first postseason appearance in program history as the Bulls earned a bid to the Women’s Basketball Invitational. While at UB, Hill was in charge of working with UB’s guards and tracking the academic progress of the team.
Hill helped coach Abby Dowd onto the 2010 All-MAC Freshman team, the first UB player since 2005-06 to earn that honor. In 2009-10, Hill helped the Bulls maintain over a 3.0 team GPA and last year Buffalo had three players named to the MAC All- Academic team.
She previously served as an assistant coach at Neumann College and spent time as an assistant coach at St. Anthony’s Catholic High School as well. During that time, Hill also worked as a marketing development representative at Reebok.
A 2002 graduate of the University of South Carolina, Hill was a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll and helped the Gamecocks to the 2002 Elite Eight.
