Louisville women’s basketball assistant coach Jonneshia Pineda has been named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) 2020 30-Under-30 list. The 30-Under-30 list recognizes 30 women’s basketball coaches across the country that are under the age of 30.

Pineda just finished her first season as an assistant at Louisville and her seventh year working with a Division I program. She helped lead the Cardinals to a 28-4 record in 2019-20 and the program’s first ever outright Atlantic Coast Conference regular season title.

She came to Louisville after six seasons at Georgia Tech, serving the final two seasons as an assistant coach. In her six seasons, she helped lead the Yellow Jackets to five 20-win seasons, one NCAA Tournament appearance, four appearances in the WNIT, including a trip to the 2017 WNIT championship.

In 2017-18, her first season as an assistant coach, she helped lead Georgia Tech to a 20-14 record and an appearance in the WNIT quarterfinals. She also assisted in recruiting the 2018 signing class, which ranked No. 10 in the nation.

Prior to being promoted to assistant coach, Pineda spent the 2013-14 season as video coordinator intern at Georgia Tech. That season, the Yellow Jackets went 21-12 and played in the NCAA Tournament.
