ATLANTA - George Washington women's basketball head coach Jonathan Tsipis is one of three finalists for the WBCA Region I Coach of the Year.
Coach Tsipis guided the Colonials to 21 wins and a tie for second place in the Atlantic 10 standings with an 11-5 league record. GW, which defeated two ranked teams on the season in No. 10/11 California (Nov. 15) and No. 21 Dayton (March 1), advanced to the A-10 semifinals for the first time since 2008 after knocking off defending champion Saint Joseph's in overtime in the quarterfinals.
GW (21-10) is poised for its first postseason berth since 2009 and will learn its fate on Monday evening.
Coach Tsipis joins Connecticut's Geno Auriemma and Louisville's Jeff Walz on the Region I ballot, with the winner becoming a finalist for the 2014 Russell Athletic/WBCA NCAA Division I National Coach of the Year Award.
Region I is made up of schools from the American Athletic Conference, America East, Atlantic 10, Big East, Ivy League, Northeast Conference and Patriot League.
