Courtney Banghart is the head women's basketball coach at Princeton University. Prior to coaching at Princeton, she served as an assistant coach for four years at Dartmouth College. She is a 2000 alumna of Dartmouth, where she played college basketball. In 1999 and 2000, she led Dartmouth to two Ivy League Championships. She holds Dartmouth records for 3 pointers in a game, season, and career.
As an assistant coach at Dartmouth, Banghart helped lead Dartmouth to two Ivy League Championships, and two NCAA appearances in 2005 and 2006. Dartmouth went 70-44 those seasons including 41-15 in Ivy League play.
In 2007, Banghart became the head coach for the Princeton Tigers. Since then, her teams have won five Ivy League outright championships from 2010 through 2015, and, as a result, appeared in five NCAA Women's Division I Tournaments. Her most recent team was one of the 32 remaining teams in the 2015 tournament.
In 2015, the United States Basketball Writers Association named Banghart Coach of the Year. Fortune named her one of the World's 50 Greatest Leaders for "taking charge of a mediocre team that had never made the NCAA Tournament" while ensuring players met Princeton's academic standards.
