On Wednesday, April 5, St. Louis College of Pharmacy named Stephen Allen as head coach of the Eutectics women’s basketball program.

"I hope to accomplish special things here," Allen said. "I hope to put some banners in the rafters of the new arena and develop a reputation for STLCOP athletics, especially the women's basketball program. I want us to be the best representatives and ambassadors the College has and be very difficult to beat in the process.”

Director of Athletics Jill Harter shares how Allen’s drive and passion will help develop members of the Eutectic Women’s Basketball team as they prepare for next season.

"Coach Allen will bring incredible enthusiasm to our Women's Basketball team, backed up by success at the college level," she said. "We're thrilled to have him on board and look forward to the future of the Lady Eutectics with Allen at the helm."

Allen comes to the College after serving four years as head men’s basketball coach and two years as assistant women’s basketball coach at University of Pittsburgh Titusville. While there, he helped usher the athletics program into the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference and coached three all-conference players.

Allen also coached the Men's Junior Varsity Basketball team at Medaille College in Buffalo, New York, a NCAA Division III program that made the NCAA tournament during each of his three years there. In addition, he founded and directed Rust Belt Basketball Amateur Athletic Union in 2012, and he has enjoyed coaching experiences at two different high schools for both boys’ and girls’ basketball.
