BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Southern University introduced longtime assistant Carlos Funchess as the newest coach of the women's basketball team Thursday.

He spent the past 13 seasons as an assistant and expects the winning ways to continue.

"When you come to Southern University to play women's basketball, your expectation [is] to be cutting down nets at the end of the year," said Funchess. "So, we basically expect to win a championship. That's why kids come here. We expect to win championships every year."

Funchess served under former head coach Sandy Pugh.

He worked with the team's post players, including All-SWAC performers Frederika Lewis, Freda Allen, Jasmine Jefferson and Briana Green.
