ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF women's basketball associate head coach Greg Brown will be a guest speaker at this weekend's Assistant Basketball Coaches Symposium, A Step Up: Chicago 2011. The convention is hosted by Felicia Hall & Associates and is designed as a career building and professional development opportunity for women's basketball assistant coaches.
Brown, who helped lead the Knights to their second Conference USA Championship this past March, will speak on the topic of scouting and game plan development. He will focus on the game being `over coached and under taught' and how scouting an opponent is an opportunity to teach the system.
Approximately 200 assistant coaches from across the nation and all three divisions of college basketball will be in attendance this weekend. Other topics presented at the symposium will include: `Crisis Management', `Rising to the Top', `Becoming a Champion', `Winning the Right Way', `Developing Game Changers' and several others.
Brown will be just one of the panel members to present. Others joining the Knights' top assistant are: Kelly Bond (Texas A&M), Carol Owens (Notre Dame), Hall of Famer Theresa Grentz, ESPN analyst Carolyn Peck, Trena Anderson (Kansas), Jodie Kaczor Berry (Gonzaga), Eric Birch (Texas A&M), Al Brown (Duke), Marlin Chinn (Maryland), Cori Close (Florida State), Michelle Edwards (Rutgers), Stephanie Glance (Illinois State), John Margaritas (UC Riverside), Stephanie Menio (Notre Dame), Kevin Morrison (California-Berkeley), Bobbi Morse (Washington), Victoria Picott (Vanderbilt ), Pam Stackhouse (Kentucky), Bob Starkey (formally with LSU) and Coquese Washington (Penn State).
This marks the second year of the conference after a successful debut last spring in Atlanta. This year's symposium will run from April 29- May 1 at the Intercontinental Hotel Chicago O'Hare.
