Lacey Goldwire is in her second year as an assistant women's basketball coach at the University of Iowa in 2014-15.

The Hawkeyes finished the 2013-14 campaign with an overall record of 27-9 and a ranking of No. 19 in the postseason AP Top 25 Poll during Goldwire's first year in Iowa City. The Hawkeyes' 27 victories equaled the second-highest total in program history, and the most since 1996. In addition, Iowa's 14 home wins equaled the second-highest single-season total in school history. The Hawkeyes made their seventh-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Iowa, a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, defeated 11th-seeded Marist in the First Round, 87-65, marking the fourth-largest margin of victory in an NCAA Tournament win in program history.

"We are glad to have Lacey join our women's basketball family," said Bluder. "She is enthusiastic, professional, and relates well to players and recruits. Her main responsibilities with our team will be developing our wing players, and recruiting. I have no doubt that Lacey will be a great Hawkeye."

"I cannot begin to express how excited I am to join the Hawkeye family," said Goldwire. "The University of Iowa women's basketball program has proved to be top in the nation and is on the rise. Coach Bluder and the staff at Iowa are an accomplished and outstanding group of women, and I am very privileged to get to work with such an experienced staff. It is great to be a part of a program with such an amazing fan base and support system. The Hawkeye fans love women's basketball and make Carver-Hawkeye Arena a fun place to play.

"I am very appreciative of the opportunity to work at the University of Iowa, and I am thankful for those who have helped me get to this point. I am so eager to get settled in and to have the team back on campus so we can hit the floor."

Goldwire spent the 2012-13 season as an assistant coach at Morehead State. Prior to joining the Eagles' staff, Goldwire served on the Oklahoma State staff for four seasons -- two as a student assistant and two as a graduate assistant.

Following Oklahoma State's tragic loss of its head and assistant coach during a plane crash in November of 2011, Goldwire was elevated to interim assistant coach where she took on added recruiting duties. During her time with the program, the Cowgirls won 80 games and advanced to the postseason all four years, winning the 2012 WNIT championship.

Goldwire, an Oklahoma City native, played collegiately at East Central (Okla.) University where she ranks fifth in career scoring with 1,340 points. She averaged 21.1 points and 5.9 rebounds as a senior and was tabbed Lone Star Conference North co-Player of the Year and Second-Team All-South Central Region. She also earned ECU's Athlete of the Year honor in 2007-08. She was named honorable mention All-LSC following her sophomore and junior campaigns.

Goldwire, an all-state and all-city player at Del City (Okla.) High School, graduated from Oklahoma State with a bachelor of science in education and a master's degree in teaching, learning and leadership.
