Former Wisconsin coach Lisa Stone has been hired to coach Saint Louis’ women’s basketball team and will be introduced Friday at a news conference. Stone coached at Wisconsin for eight seasons before being fired in March of 2011. She was 128-119 as coach of the Badgers. She led the team to the NCAA tournament in 2010, but Wisconsin lost in the opening round to Vermont.
Stone succeeds Shimmy Gray-Miller, who was let go in March. The Billikens went 11-20 this season and were 71-136 in Gray-Miller’s seven years at the school.
