Shonda Long is entering her second season as the Chippewas’ Video coordinator after spending three seasons (2012-15) as an assistant coach at Division III Alma College.
Long was a standout player at CMU from 2008-11, finisher her career sixth on the Chippewas’ all-time scoring list with 1,439 points, and second in career 3-pointers (230). Her 510 points during the 2010-11 season rank as the fifth-highest single season total in program history.
Long became the 19th player in CMU history to score 1,000 points when she achieved the honor on Dec. 11, 2011, against Northwestern. She broke CMU’s career 3-pointers record on January 12, 2011 against Eastern Michigan, and she finished her career 12th in the Mid-American Conference in career triples.
She is the only player in CMU history to have made 50 or more 3-pointers in three seasons.
On March 3, 2011, Long scored a CMU-record 40 points in a 90-69 victory over Buffalo in a MAC Tournament quarterfinal game. She tied her career-high – and tied the MAC Tournament record – with seven 3-pointers in that game.
Long was named to the All-MAC Third Team in both her junior and seniors, and she played professionally in Poland in 2011.
Long earned a bachelor’s degree in health administration with a minor in athletic coaching in 2012. She earned her masters degree in sports administration from CMU in 2014.
