June Daugherty is an American women's college basketball coach at Washington State University. She has coached more than 600 career games, turned around the WSU women's basketball program by bringing in top-ranked recruiting classes, has improved attendance numbers and has overseen student-athletes who place premiums on academics and community service. Prior to becoming a head coach, Daugherty served as an assistant coach at Kent State University (1985–89) and Stanford University (1983–85) under Tara Vanderveer. Last season, Daugherty led the Cougars to one of the most successful campaigns in program history while playing one of the toughest schedules in the country. WSU had the most wins since 1995-1996 with 13 overall victories and their second double-digit win season under Daugherty's coaching. The Cougars 2011-2012 season posted the most rebounds; the sixth-most points, fourth-most threes, fifth-most assists and second-most assists in WSU single-season history.[1] She was previously the head coach at Boise State University from 1989–96 and the University of Washington from 1997-2007 and has a career record of 358-323 (.534).[2] In her 11 years at UW she took her teams to the NCAA tournament 6 times, including her final year at UW. Her contract was not renewed after the season and less than a month later on April 20, 2007 Daugherty was officially introduced as head coach at UW's biggest rival, WSU, a school she never lost to in 22 contests while at UW.

June (Brewer)Daugherty played her collegiate basketball at Ohio State 1974–78, where she led the Buckeyes to the Big Ten Championship in 1977 and 1978. She is still ranked among the school's top 25 in career scoring with 1,137 points. She also ranks fifth in career rebounds with 829, is tied for 17th in career field goals made which is 500 and shares the single-game school record for blocked shots (12 against Michigan State in 1976). At the conclusion of her senior season, she earned first-team All-America honors and was a Wade Trophy finalist the first year the award was presented.[3] She was a four-time letterwinner and captained the latter squad there. Just prior to the start of the 2001 season at WU, The Ohio State University honored Daugherty with an induction into the OSU Athletic Hall of Fame.[4] Daugherty was inducted into the Westerville High School Athletic Hall of Fame in December, 2011, where she attended her four years of high school. Following graduation in 1978 from Ohio State, Daugherty contributed as both a player and coach on several international teams, including a period as a player and coach for the Union Sportive Vierzon Club based in France. Daugherty is a native of Columbus, Ohio.[5]

June Daugherty is major advocate for healthy heart awareness. She was named the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association's National Coach of the Year in 2008. Since becoming a survivor of sudden cardiac arrest, Daugherty has become one of the nation's most visible spokesmen, filming a nationally-aired commercial, speaking at fund-raisers for the Hope Heart Institute and the American Red Cross.[6][7]
