Former Florida State standout and Northeastern assistant coach joins Rizzotti's staff
She helped engineer a championship season in her first season at the helm as the Colonials won the Atlantic 10 Championship and advanced to the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Her scouting throughout the season led to a number of wins, including a key road regular-season win at Saint Joseph's and the championship victory over the Hawks a few weeks later.
Adeduntan came to GW after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at Northeastern University. She helped engineer a nine-win turnaround from her first season on the staff to the second season as the Huskies improved from four wins in 2014-15 to 15 wins in 2015-16. She coached both forwards and post players (2014-16) and guards (2016-17) during her tenure.
Adeduntan is also a strong recruiter that helped formulate the recruitment plan which resulted in a pair of Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) All-Rookie selections in Jess Genco and Gabby Giacone (2015-16). She also played a key role in the development of All-CAA First Team (2015-16) and Third Team (2014-15, 2016-17) selections.
Prior to her time at Northeastern, Adeduntan served as the head coach of the women's basketball team at Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. She also had career stops at Northeastern (Administrative Assistant, 2010-12), Essence Girls Basketball AAU (2007-10), North Florida Christian School (2008-10) and Florida High School (2006-08).
Adeduntan was a four-year letterwinner and 1,000-point scorer at Florida State under head coach Sue Semrau. She was a four-year member of the ACC All-Academic Team and earned All-ACC Honorable Mention honors as a junior in 2005. She also was a CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honoree in 2005.
She earned both her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing (Nurse Practitioner) from Florida State, as well as her Doctorate in Nursing Practice from Northeastern University.
