Lisa had a brilliant 28-year officiating career that was one for the ages by any account. She posts historic postseason stats that most coaches and even universities will never match.
Lisa took 21 trips to the NCAA tournament including a remarkable 18 Final Fours and 10 NCAA Women’s Championship games. She also was a part of the WNBA’s inaugural season and officiated multiple league finals during her 10-year pro career.
She retired after the 2018 Final Four and was immediately hired as Coordinator of Officials for the SEC, Atlantic Sun, Ohio valley, and more. Lisa also hosts Referee University, a camp ideal for officials looking to learn and gain exposure to Division 1 Women’s basketball.
In this episode, we mention some other officiating legends like June Courteau, Sally Bell, and Patty Broderick who were instrumental in Lisa’s growth, and discuss some of her most memorable games as an official.
Lisa also spoke candidly about how she balances the fine line of hearing out coaches while still supporting officials and gives us insights on a day in the life of a power 5 conference coordinator.
