Email Coach Falcosky

Mary Ann Falcosky will be entering her 13th season at USD, and 17th year with Coach Fisher, as an assistant coach. Falcosky has a wealth of coaching experience at both the Division I and junior college levels and over 19 years of recruiting experience. With this experience, one of her primary responsibilities is coordinating the recruiting effort for the Toreros, which includes both national and international recruiting. Falcosky also works with the USD marketing department to promote the women's basketball program and assists the strength and conditioning staff to ensure the physical fitness level of the Toreros is at a championship level.

Other responsibilities Falcosky takes on at USD include the scouting of opponents to assist Coach Fisher with game plans. During the game, she charts the Toreros defensive schemes and provides defensive and offensive input to Fisher. She is also in charge of the development of the post players.

Falcosky has been a key part of USD winning at least 20 games in five seasons of the past six seasons. In that six-year span, USD has recorded a .697 win percentage (136-59), the second best amongst all division I schools in California, trailing only Stanford in this category.

In 2016, the Toreros went 25-7 and finished second in the WCC with a 14-4 conference record. They qualified for the WNIT fifth consecutive season and advanced to their second Sweet 16 appearance in the past three seasons. Under her watch, Maya Hood was named the Defensive Player of the Year and Malina Hood earned All-WCC First team honors.

In 2015, Falcosky played a key role in helping guide senior forward Sophia Ederaine to the WCC Defensive Player of the Year distinction, making Ederaine the first player in program history to take home this honor. Ederaine led the nation in blocked shots with 152. This blocked shots marked also broke a 22-year old single-season blocked shots record at USD. With Falcoskly's help, USD had an unprecedented fourth consecutive 20-win season, as USD posted a 25-7 overall record, finished second in the WCC at 14-4 and USD made its fourth consecutive trip to the WNIT. Under her tutelage, the senior class was able to graduate with an overall four-year mark of 97-25.

In the 2014-15 season, Falcosky helped lead USD to an overall record of 24-9, the second most wins in program history, and reached the Sweet 16 round of the WNIT for the second time in three years. USD opened the season with a perfect 15-0 record, which led to the programs fist-ever national ranking of No. 24 in both the Associate Press and Coaches top-25 polls. The 15-0 start was the best not only in program history, but for any athletic team at USD in the division I era. The WNIT appearance marked the first time in program history that USD has made three consecutive postseason appearances.

In 2012-13, Falcoskey helped lead to an overall record of 22-10, the second most wins in program history, and reached the second round of the WNIT. USD also had a 12-4 mark in the WCC, good for sole possession of second place in the WCC, and San Diego managed to reach the championship game of the WCC Tournament. This marked only the second time in program history that USD has made back-to-back postseason appearances, and both times have come under the watchful eye of head coach Cindy Fisher and coach Falcoskey. USD did all of this despite losing a pair of 1,000-point scorers, and the team's leading rebounder from the previous season. Coach Falcoskey helped the Toreros produced the WCC Freshman of the Year in Maya Hood, and had three total players earn All-WCC honors, highlighted by first-teamer Amy Kame.

In the 2011-12 season, Falcosky helped the Toreros soar to new heights, as the team posted a 26-9 overall record, and a 12-4 mark in the WCC. The 26 wins is a program record, as well as the 12 WCC wins. USD not only finished second in the WCC, but they went to record the program's first postseason win, as USD defeated Cal State Northridge in the first round of the WNIT, 60-58. USD didn't stop there, as they went on to reach the Final Four of the WNIT. USD reached the final four by defeating Pacific, Texas Tech, and Washington, before falling to eventual WNIT champion Oklahoma State. This is now considered the best season in program history.

In only her third season with the Toreros, Falcosky helped guide the team back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in eight years, as USD won the WCC Tournament championship with a 70-66 win over top-seeded Gonzaga. The 2007-08 season marks back-to-back trips to the postseason for the Toreros with Falcosky on the coaching staff.

During only her second season at USD, she helped guide the Toreros to their biggest turn around in program history, a 12-game improvement from 9-19 in the 2005-06 season to a 21-9 record in 2006-07 season. Under Falcosky's guidance, the Toreros placed three players on the All-WCC lists, including the WCC Co-Player of the Year Amanda Rego.

Prior to joining the USD staff, Falcosky completed a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Weber State in Ogden, Utah. Falcosky was essential in helping Weber State compile a 38-18 record between 2002-2005, including a 21-8 finish in the 2004-2005 season.

Her main responsibilities on the Wildcat staff included the individual development of both post and guard players, organizing team travel, assisting with recruiting, organizing and running the high school jamboree camps, marketing and promoting the program, working with the strength and conditioning coach regarding pre, in, and post season strength training and assisting on the court with both offense and defense.

Prior to joining the Weber State staff, Falcosky spent five years as an assistant coach at the University of Wyoming. While at Wyoming, Falcosky was instrumental in implementing an academic program, which resulted in 32 players being recognized academically on an Academic All-Conference Team, and the WBCA recognizing the 2001-02 Wyoming women's team for having the highest GPA in the country among Division I institutions. Other duties include assisting with all aspects of organizing and running one of the largest team camps (1,800 attendees) in the country, coordinating and assisting with the recruiting efforts which attracted student-athletes from the northwest, west, and mid-west regions and having contributed to the development of seven players who were able to continue their careers playing professionally overseas.

Prior to working at Wyoming, Falcosky was an assistant at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Ariz. for four years. Her 1998-99 recruiting class finished the season ranked 5th in the NJCAA Division II poll.

A native of Tempe, Ariz., Falcosky is a 1993 graduate of Northern Arizona University and holds her masters degree in kinesiology and health from the University of Wyoming.
