Sydney Hines begins her first season as an assistant coach on Tom Rose's men's basketball staff in 2019-20.
Hines, an Owings Mills, Maryland, native, comes to Goucher after a four-year career on the women's basketball team at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Conn. She amassed 439 points, 116 rebounds, 84 assists and 41 steals in 97 games including nine starts. Hines had 12 double-figure point games in her career including a career-high 19 points against Fairleigh Dickinson in her junior campaign and 14 points against Seton Hall as a sophomore.
Hines arrived at Central Connecticut State after a standout four-year career at New Town High School in Owings Mills where she left as the all-time leading scorer with 1,835 career points and was selected to the all-county and all-conference first team while earning all-metro second-team honors in her senior campaign.
Hines will become the second female men's basketball assistant coach in program history at Goucher after April Rose served as a men's basketball assistant coach for five seasons (1995-00). She also becomes the third female to serve as a men's basketball coach in the state of Maryland, joining Rose and Stephanie Ready at Coppin State (1999-01). She will be the 11th known female to serve as an assistant coach on a men's basketball staff dating back to the first female men's basketball assistant coach in 1989-90 and 15th woman that has served on a men's basketball staff as either an assistant coach, director of basketball operations or special assistant to the head coach.
Hines graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science at Central Connecticut State and will be pursuing her Master's of Education with the specialization in athletic program leadership and administration at Goucher.
