Karl Smesko, who enters his ninth year on the bench at FGCU, has enjoyed a tremendous run as the head women’s basketball coach at Florida Gulf Coast University. Smesko was selected as the university’s first women’s basketball coach in 2001. His eight-season record at FGCU is an astounding 204-41 (.833) and his three-season record in Atlantic Sun Conference matchups is 47-9 (.839).

Last season, Smesko and the Eagles posted 24 wins, to secure the program’s seventh 21-plus win season in the eight-year program history, along with a second place finish in the Atlantic Sun Conference. FGCU received the program’s first invitation to play in the preseason WNIT and also secured their third consecutive postseason WNIT automatic bid. By participating in the 2010 postseason WNIT, FGCU became the first A-Sun school to make three consecutive WNIT appearances since FIU accomplished the feat in 1992-93.

During the 2009-10 season, the Blue and Green extended its home winning streak to 24 games, which ranks as the fourth longest home winning streak in Division I women’s basketball heading into the 2010-11 campaign.
