Wisconsin Hires New Women's Basketball Coach

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Stanford assistant Bobbie Kelsey has been hired to replace Lisa Stone as head coach of the Wisconsin women's basketball team.

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez announced the hiring Monday.

Kelsey has been an assistant at Stanford the past four seasons, during which the Cardinal went 137-14 and advanced to the Final Four each year.

Kelsey also played at Stanford from 1992-96 and appeared in the Final Four three times as a player, including with the 1992 national championship team. She is a native of Decatur, Ga.

Stone was fired last month after eight seasons and just one appearance in the NCAA tournament. She had a 128-119 record.
