POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Head coach Brian Giorgis and the Marist women’s basketball team announce the promotion of assistant coaches Erin Doughty and Alisa Kresge. Doughty has been promoted from second assistant to first assistant. Kresge has been promoted from third assistant to second assistant.

“Doughty and Kresge have both been tremendous assets to the success of the program both as players and coaches,” said Giorgis. “Their promotion is well earned and much deserved.”

Doughty is in her ninth season as assistant coach of the Marist women's basketball team. She continues to serve as the program's recruiting coordinator as well as making team travel arrangements and coordinates the team's community service projects. After working primarily with the Red Foxes' post players, Doughty began working alongside assistant coach Kresge with the team's guards in the 2011-12 season. Under Doughty's guidance, the Red Foxes led the MAAC in the 2012-2013 season in scoring defense (52.3 per game), scoring margin (+11.6), free throw percentage (.791), assists (15.3 per game), turnover margin (+2.94), assist/turnover ratio (1.1), and three-point field goals made (6.6 per game).

Doughty was the active member on the Marist coaching staff that helped bring the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation and the women's basketball program together. In April 2010, the team adopted Nina Triplo from Stone Ridge, N.Y., welcoming her to the Red Fox family. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for those affected by pediatric brain tumors.

From 2002-05, Doughty was a walk-on guard who appeared in 12 games, made two MAAC All-Academic teams and was one of the Red Foxes' most popular players. An accurate long-distance shooter, Doughty hit the first two shots she attempted in her collegiate career, both of which were three-pointers. During her senior season, she joined the coaching staff as an assistant, and in her first season with the squad, Marist finished with 23 victories, the highest win total in school history at the time.

Doughty attended Holy Cross High School in Connecticut, where she played four years of varsity volleyball and basketball. In basketball, Doughty became the school's all-time leader in three-pointers made and helped the squad earn a berth in the state championship game in 2002. Doughty earned her bachelor's degree from Marist in 2006 and her master's in 2008 in Psychology.

Kresge is in her fifth season with the Red Foxes as an assistant coach. She will work alongside Assistant Coach Doughty with the team's guards. Additionally, Kresge will be involved in recruiting, alumni relations, the Junior Hoop Club and Marist Girls' Basketball Camp.

In her first three years on the coaching staff, the Marist guards led the MAAC in assists, assists per game and assists to turnover ratio, and ranked in the top four in three-point field goal percentage. Members of the Marist back court have been named MAAC Player of the Week nine times in Kresge's three years and Erica Allenspach and Corielle Yarde have been named the MAAC Player of the Year in 2011 and 2012. Leanne Ockenden was named MAAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2013.

Kresge produces the Junior Hoop Club and Alumnae newsletters for the women's basketball program. She is responsible for writing and designing the publications.

From 2007-09, Kresge worked for the MAAC as Director of Women's Basketball Operations. She served as Tournament Director of the 2009 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Sweet 16 Regional at Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, N.J. Her day-to-day responsibilities at the MAAC included the creation of the conference's schedule and the coordination of its broadcast schedule. In 2008, she was the coordinator and key contributor for the conference's successful NCAA Grant application. In 2007 and 2008, Kresge was the coordinator of the ESPN Old Spice Classic, an annual eight-team exempted men's basketball tournament held in Orlando, Fla.

The program's all-time leader in assists with 596, Kresge played point guard for the Red Foxes from 2003-07. She helped lead Marist to the first Sweet 16 appearance by a men's or women's basketball program in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) history in 2007.

Kresge was named MAAC Defensive Player of the Year in each of her final three years at Marist, sharing the award in the 2004-05 season and winning it outright in the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. In addition to being the program's all-time leader in assists, Kresge is second all-time in steals with 222. She was also the program's all-time leader in games played at the time of her graduation. She became a starter halfway through the 2003-04 season, and helped lead the Red Foxes to their first NCAA Tournament appearance that season. In Kresge's four years at Marist, the Red Foxes won 94 and earned their first three NCAA Tournament berths in program history. Kresge earned a bachelor's degree in Digital Media in 2007 from Marist.
