Hoopsville’s ‘WBCA Center Court’ — Carol Jue of Chapman University

The January 15, 2017 edition of the Hoopsville webcast on D3Hoops.com, Chapman University head coach Carol Jue will be featured on “WBCA Center Court.” In her 14th season at Chapman, Jue has a 257-109 record. The Panthers are currently 4-2 in conference play.

Jue is no stranger to setting high standards. She is the only head coach in Chapman history to bring home a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) championship title (2013-14). Under her, the program has earned eight NCAA Division III playoff berths and has managed eight 20-win seasons — an uncommon feat in NCAA Division III basketball.

During the interview, Jue explains her secret behind the success of the Panthers — an intense focus on fast play and stamina.

“We focus on defense with 40 minutes of full-court pressure,” said Jue. “We have to make everybody tired. We’re not the tallest, but we are fast, and we try to give the other team a different look.”

“Our defense trains our offense,” said Jue. “(We) get the offense on their heels. When they try to rest, that’s when we (defense) have to attack.”

Jue goes on to share her thoughts on being the only Chinese-American head coach (men’s or women’s) in the NCAA, her opinion on the four-quarters rule, and her pregame rituals.
