UCLA Tournament Time
The 2012-13 UCLA women's basketball team opens the season with San Diego State in New Pauley Pavilion on Nov. 10, 2012.
Tony Newnan joined the UCLA women's basketball staff in May of 2011. He is in his second season as an assistant coach for UCLA Head Coach Cori Close. He is a 20-year coaching veteran, with Pac-10 experience, known for his defense, who has worked with numerous players drafted by the WNBA over the years. Prior to arriving at UCLA, Newnan was a women's basketball assistant coach for eight seasons at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, CA. The Warriors have earned national NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) rankings and advanced to the NAIA Tournament in four of the past five seasons. In 2009, Westmont posted a school record 22 wins and has won at least 20 games in three of the past four seasons.
From 2000-01, Newnan worked as an assistant women's basketball coach at Oregon State University. The Beavers entered post-season play (National Women's Invitation Tournament) for the first time in six seasons during that year and were led by the play of guard Felicia Ragland who was named the Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year in 2001. Ragland, who went on to be selected by the Seattle Storm in the 2002 WNBA draft, also earned District VIII Kodak All-America honors in both 2001 and 2002.
Newnan, who was the Associate Head coach at UC Santa Barbara in 1999-2000, served as the Gauchos' assistant from 1993-2000. The Gauchos captured six Big West conference titles during his tenure, set a school record with 30 wins in 2000 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 1992, 1993, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000. A 1992 graduate of UCSB, Newnan embarked on his coaching career as a student assistant coach for the Gaucho women's team in 1990-93. He was then hired full-time the following season. During his years at UCSB, Newnan helped coach such future WNBA draft selections as Kayte Christensen, Erin Buescher and Stacy Clinesmith.
