DURHAM, N.H. — Maureen Magarity, head coach of the University of New Hampshire women's basketball team, has announced the hiring of Kristen Linderoth as Director of Basketball Operations.

"I am thrilled about Kristen joining the staff," said Magarity. "Her enthusiasm, energy and work ethic will be great assets to our program and I think she will be a great addition to the UNH family."

Linderoth is responsible for all team travel, continued development of alumni and the friends of women's basketball group, summer clinics, all other administrative duties, and also serves as the community service and life skills liaison.

Linderoth, a Spring Lake, N.J., native, comes to UNH after earning her bachelor's degree in Government and Law with a minor in Women and Gender Studies from Lafayette College in May. Prior to her year at Lafayette, she spent three years at Catholic University of America where she majored in Politics and was also a member of the varsity basketball team.

While at Catholic University of America, Linderoth was honored as a Capitol Athletic Conference Second Team honoree in her freshman season, while also notching Rookie of the Year honors. During that year she started in 24 of 27 games, ranking second on the team in scoring (11.6 ppg) and leading the Cardinals in rebounds (177) and blocks (28).

Over the course of the next two seasons, the former team captain started in all 26 games she appeared in, averaging 12.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 assists per game. Her best numbers came during her sophomore campaign when she averaged 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
