As the players walk out of night practice, women’s basketball head coach David Carmichael, stops forward Collette Eugene and gives her a reminder of the proper shooting form.

Afterward, Carmichael says, “She shoots well, but she also takes the ball to the basket this way, which is okay, but now I’m telling her to work on stepping, facing the basket and shooting,”

Carmichael has coached basketball for various college teams since 1986. He coached City College men’s basketball for 10 years and has been coaching the women’s team since 2001.

“[I really enjoy] seeing it [go] from ground one to growing into a strong contender,” Carmichael says of his love for coaching.”
