As a 1990 alumnus of the Boston University Women’s Basketball program and a former assistant coach at the College of the Holy Cross, I fully support current Boston University Women’s Basketball coach Kelly Greenberg.
I met Kelly in 1994 when I joined the staff at Holy Cross. Kelly was my mentor and over time, Kelly has become my lifelong friend. Kelly can be defined quite simply: great teacher. A great teacher is said not only to instruct, but to inspire. Kelly inspired with lessons like the whole team is greater than the sum of its parts, and the greater reward is the commitment to a common goal.
Kelly’s compassion and caring toward the players was obvious as Kelly was the go to source when players had personal issues. She could laugh with the team and cry with the team.
Kelly treated each young lady as an individual, on and off the court. She held each young lady to high standards in the classroom. She held each athlete accountable to demonstrate exceptional effort on the court and unselfish behavior toward TEAM.
The lessons that Kelly demonstrated and instructed, inspired young ladies to become successful professionals, caring moms, and loyal friends in the years after their college basketball careers were over.
I enthusiastically support the character, integrity, and coaching abilities of Kelly Greenberg.
