Wolf Pack logoSecond-year head women’s basketball coach Jane Albright has announced the addition of graduate assistant Allyson Fasnacht to her staff.

At Nevada, Fasnacht’s primary duties include film exchange, maintenance and management of the women’s’ basketball blog, video breakdown and connection and communication with alumni.

“Allyson’s energy and expertise has made a great impact on our program,” Albright said. “She’s a proven winner with a great work ethic, character and love for the game. While she is working on her master’s degree it’s a plus for us to get to have her be a part of our program.”

Fasnacht spent the 2008-09 season as an assistant women’s basketball coach at Furman in Greenville, S.C. While coaching the Lady Paladins, Fasnacht coordinated the summer camps, assisted with on-court player development, prepared opponent scouting reports, assisted with film exchange and wrote the monthly newsletters.

Fasnacht played collegiately at Liberty University from 2004-08. During her career, she helped the Lady Flames to three big South Tournament Championships and three NCAA Tournament appearances including a Sweet 16 appearance in 2005.

During the summers of 2004-08, Fasnacht worked as a camp counselor at both the Virginia Tech University and Liberty University basketball camps. She also spent time in 2005 as a practicum student with the Liberty University basketball office working directly with the director of basketball operations.

A native of Salem, Virginia, she graduated from Liberty University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in sports management. She is currently perusing a master’s degree in educational leadership at Nevada.
