Former Orlando Magic Assistant Coach Luke Stuckey begins his first season as the assistant coach of the Cameron Men’s basketball team.

Stuckey spent the past two seasons (2012-2014) with the Orlando Magic as an assistant coach who specialized in player development. His responsibilities with the Magic included working with young players individually, scouting, game preparation and pre-game walk-throughs.

Before coaching at the professional level, Stuckey served as the varsity head coach at San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas, Calif. from 2008-2012. Under his leadership, the Mustangs cruised to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 for the first time in school history. He also served as an assistant basketball coach at La Jolla High School in San Diego.

Stuckey hails from Kankakee, Ill. and is a graduate of Bishop McNamara High School. After graduating high school, he played basketball for two years at Northland Community College in Minnesota.

Stuckey received his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Iowa Wesleyan and Masters of Education degree in 2012.

Emma Andrews joined the Cameron women’s basketball program as the new assistant coach after spending six seasons as a student-athlete (2007-2011) and later as a graduate assistant coach (2012-2014) at Fresno State.

During Andrews’ time with the Bulldogs, the program went 122-45, while capturing five conference titles, and made six NCAA Tournament appearances.

The former Bulldog guard scored a career-high of 23 points at Loyola Marymount on Dec. 5, 2009 and helped lead the team to four-straight WAC titles and four NCAA appearances.

Additionally, Andrews played in 86 games for Fresno State under former Aggie women’s basketball coach and Lawton native, Adrian Wiggins.

Andrews received her bachelor’s degree in 2011 and master’s degree in 2014 from Fresno State.
