Women's College Basketball

 
             === Denver names Cremeans women's basketball coach ===
 
 Denver,  CO  (Sports Network)  - The  University of  Denver on Wednesday named
 Kerry Cremeans head women's basketball coach.
 
 Cremeans,  formerly an  associate head coach at Auburn, replaces Erik Johnson,
 who left Denver for Boston College.
 
 "I  am very honored and humbled to become the new head coach at the University
 of  Denver," Cremeans said in a release. "There is a strong foundation already
 in  place, and  I am ready to  continue building on that with these incredible
 young  ladies that represent DU. I want to especially thank Peg Bradley-Doppes
 and  Pam  Wettig for this  unbelievable opportunity. They are the best-of-the-
 best in college athletics, and I look forward to working alongside them."
 
 Cremeans  was  head recruiter at  Purdue when  the Boilermakers won a national
 championship  in 1999 and  when they reached the title game again in 2001, and
 12  of the players during her 18-year tenure as a coach at various levels have
 played in the WNBA.
 
 "The  future of DU  Basketball is bright and great things are on the horizon,"
 Cremeans said. "We will represent this University and athletic department with
 the  highest level of  integrity and class. We will be relentless on the court
 and  we will  strive for  excellence in  the classroom.  I can't  wait to  get
 started!"
