Penny Davis named NCAA national coordinator of women's basketball officiating

Posted: July 1, 2019 -- 4:38 p.m. CT

Penny Davis has been named the NCAA's national coordinator of women's basketball officiating, bringing with her over 22 years of officiating experience gathered at all levels of the game.

Davis, who will direct the national women's basketball officiating program across all three divisions, will fill the void created by the departure of June Courteau, who retired May 31 after five years as national coordinator.

"It's an honor to get to contribute to the future of the game through this role," said Davis. "Basketball has been the vehicle in my life that has delivered me so many gifts and opportunities. I have been influenced by many great officials, coordinators, observers and coaches in my 20-plus years of officiating, and I am grateful for the experience and their leadership and guidance."

Davis brings with her extensive experience in all aspects of women's basketball officiating, including work with NCAA Division I, II and III, the NAIA, the WNBA and the NBA Development League.

"We are thrilled Penny Davis will serve as the NCAA women's basketball national coordinator of officials," said Lynn Holzman, NCAA vice president of women's basketball. "She comes to the position with a tremendous amount of officiating experience at every level, especially in Division I, where she has worked all rounds of 14 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championships. That, combined with her work as an off-court training instructor, evaluator and officiating leader, gives her a depth of background that will allow her to pick up where June Courteau left off and lead our officiating program into 2020 and beyond."
