Men's Basketball Coach Mike Lonergan Names Matt Lisiewski and Maurice Joseph as Directors of Basketball Operations
Former Maryland Video Director and Vermont Standout Join GW Staff
July 5, 2011
WASHINGTON, DC -- Matt Lisiewski and Maurice Joseph have been hired as Director of Basketball Operations and Assistant Director of Basketball Operations, respectively, for men's basketball at The George Washington University, head coach Mike Lonergan has announced. Lisiewski spent the last five seasons at the University of Maryland where he served as the video coordinator for men's basketball. Joseph comes to GW after spending last year playing professionally in Israel following two successful seasons at the University of Vermont playing for Lonergan.
"Matt and Maurice are both critical additions to our staff," Lonergan said. "There are a lot of logistical challenges involved in running a successful program and, with Maurice and Matt handling those duties, I know we've got two of the best."
Lisiewski comes to GW after serving as video director for men's basketball at Maryland for the past five years under former coach Gary Williams. His duties in College Park included responsibility for all video components of the Terrapins' men's basketball program, including overseeing an extensive technology upgrade in the team's video equipment and all aspects of film exchange. A 2002 graduate of the University of Florida, Lisiewski has worked in similar capacities at SMU and USA Basketball. He assisted USA basketball in preparation for its trip to Turkey in 2010.
Joseph, a native of Montreal, Quebec and 2009 graduate of the University of Vermont, began his playing career at Michigan State in 2005 and played for two seasons under coach Tom Izzo before transferring to Vermont in 2007. A two-year team captain of the Catamounts, Joseph was the team's second-leading scorer (13.9 ppg) for the 2009-10 season under Lonergan. Joseph, who was named Canada's National Player of the Year in 2005, is the older brother of Syracuse's Kris Joseph.
