When you take the floor as a member of Emmanuel’s women’s basketball team, you become a part of a rich history and tradition few programs in the country possess. When you don the blue and gold you’re making a statement: You don’t just dream about playing in March; you expect to be. Because you’re a Saint. And you’re part of the team everyone is talking about.
Meet the Coach Andrew Yosinoff is the Head Coach of the Women’s Basketball program. He enters his 34th season at the helm of the Saints’ program as one of the most accomplished women’s basketball coaches in the country. He has guided Emmanuel to 14 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) titles and 15 NCAA Championship Tournament appearances. His 640 career victories rank him fourth all time amongst Division III women’s basketball coaches. A recent inductee into the GNAC Hall of Fame’s inaugural class, Yosinoff is also a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2008, he was honored for his contribution to women’s athletics with a “Heights Award,” presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery and Boston College Athletics at Boston College’s Conte Forum. He served as the USA Maccabiah Open head women’s basketball coach in 2005, where he guided Team USA to its first-ever gold medal during the Maccabiah Games in Israel.

“We play basketball to win championships. Our style is aggressive… we press and we run! If you have those competitive instincts in the classroom and on the court, check out the Saints!” Andrew Yosinoff Head Women’s Basketball Coach Emmanuel College
During the 2000-2001 season, Yosinoff led the Saints to their first trip to the NCAA Final Four – making him the first coach in Boston to make the basketball Final Four, in any category (men’s or women’s, Division I, II or III). Under Yosinoff’s direction, the team became GNAC regular season and tournament champions, NCAA Northeast/East Sectional Champions, NCAA Northeast/East Regional Champions, and NCAA Final Four SemiFinalists. The Saints were also voted ECAC Division III Team of the Year, while Yosinoff’s peers named him GNAC Coach of the Year. Between 2000-2006, the Saints went undefeated in the GNAC, winning 72-straight regular season conference games – the longest regular season conference win streak in Division III history. During the 20062007 season, Yosinoff coached the Saints to an NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance with a program record 29 wins and an undefeated conference mark of 12-0. The Saints defeated Salve Regina and Brandeis University in the NCAA Tournament and eventually fell to the 2007 National Champion, DePauw University. Their 29 wins ranked them as the top team in number of victories among all Division III programs. Yosinoff’s team has not only made perennial trips to post-season tournaments, the Saints have also taken annual journeys during the College’s winter break, including trips to Florida, California, Ireland, Saint Thomas and China.
