COACH KIM CALDWELL
- On March 27, 2023, the Coach Kim Caldwell era began for the Marshall University women’s basketball program. Caldwell became the eighth head coach in the history of the Herd.
- Caldwell – the Parkersburg, West Virginia native – joins Marshall from Division II Glenville State, where she turned the Pioneers into a powerhouse, going 191-24 in seven seasons, winning the 2022 NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball National Championship.
- Marshall is playing just its second home game of the season Saturday, with its only home game being a 121-55 win over Point Park last month.
- The Herd is forcing 23.7 turnovers per game, which is 10th nationally.
- Marshall fans will see shots go up from deep. The Herd is shooting 31.7 three point attempts per game, a number which is fourth nationally.
- Marshall and Florida have never met in a regular season game. Kentucky was the last SEC team to visit the Cam Henderson Center for a women’s basketball game.
