Yosinoff Sets Historic Career and Division Records

On the cusp of the New Year, Emmanuel College Women’s Basketball Head Coach Andy Yosinoff earned his 816th career coaching win with the Saints’ victory over Ramapo College of New Jersey on December 30th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, establishing the new record for career wins in NCAA Division III women’s basketball history.

Yosinoff, who has led the Emmanuel women's basketball program since it became a varsity sport in 1978, has guided the Saints to 18 NCAA tournament trips with three appearances in the Sweet 16, two appearances in the Elite Eight and an appearance in the 2001 Final Four.

"You can't set a record like this without a lot of great players, coaches and support staff," said Yosinoff. "This win isn't about me, it's about the program. It's for every player that has worn a Saints uniform and contributed to where we are today. I'm just lucky to have been along for the ride and have amazing coaches and administrators at Emmanuel who support what I do year after year."

During his 2017–2018 season, Yosinoff became the 14th NCAA women's basketball coach across all divisions to win 800 games. Additionally, Yosinoff earned each of his now 816 wins at Emmanuel, making him one of only nine NCAA women's basketball coaches to win 800 or more games at the same institution.

Just eleven games into the 2018–2019 season, Yosinoff's 816th victory positions him at the very top of the Division III women's basketball annals, and though he has attained this historic record, Yosinoff said he has goals of winning a Great Northeast championship this season and attaining 900 career wins in the future.

To honor Yosinoff's achievement, the College held a ceremony before the women's basketball game on Saturday, January 26th, where Emmanuel College President Sr. Janet Eisner, SNDdeN, presented Yosinoff with a plaque and the Department of Athletics unveiled a new banner that will hang in the gymnasium.

Yosinoff was recently featured in a WPRI "Hometown Hero" segment, as well as on Cindy Stumpo's podcast "Cindy Stumpo is Tough as Nails."
