DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Allison Pohlman has been named head coach of the Drake women’s basketball team. She was promoted after Jennie Baranczyk left to take the Oklahoma job last week.

Pohlman has been a member of the Drake staff since 2007 and associate head coach since 2014.

She calls her promotion “a dream come true.”

Pohlman was Baranczyk’s recruiting coordinator and assembled teams that have appeared in three straight NCAA Tournaments and won four regular-season Missouri Valley Conference titles and two MVC Tournament championships.
