Alyssa Polosky is enjoying an outstanding first season as the head women's basketball coach at SUNY Geneseo. The Union-Endicott and SUNY Broome graduate enjoyed plenty of success on the basketball court in her playing career and that has carried over to coaching. After playing two seasons with the Knights Polosky served seven seasons as an assistant to head coach Scott Hemer who left Geneseo last summer to become the head women's coach at Division I Canisius. She was introduced as the new head women's coach at Geneseo succeeding Hemer on July 24 of last year.

Polosky's Knights are contending for a conference championship again. Through 22 games the Knights are in second place at 19-3 overall and 12-3 in SUNYAC competition, two games behind SUNY New Paltz. The Knights have three regular season games remaining. During her tenure as an assistant coach with the Knights she helped her team get 20 or more victories in six seasons including a school record 28-2 in the 2016-17 season, a pair of SUNYAC titles and two trips to the Sweet 16 in the Division III NCAA Tournament.

Polosky learned all about success and winning during her playing days with the Knights. After transferring from SUNY Broome she led her team to the 2011 SUNYAC Championship. She earned First-Team All-SUNYAC honors along with being named to the ECAC (East Coast Athletic Conference) Second Team and Honorable Mention All-America team. She graduated from Geneseo in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in elementary and special education and earned her Master's Degree on literacy in 2014.
