Kerry Keating
Kerry Keating
Kerry Keating enters his fourth season with his a young, but experienced team. This year's youth-filled Bronco team could be Keating's most athletic team yet. Santa Clara looks to run an up-tempo style offense with more high-energy bursts in transition.
 
Keating led the Broncos to 11 wins in 2009-10 and a fifth-place finish in the league. Marc Trasolini was named all-league and Robert Smith was named to the Freshman All-WCC team.
 
Keating led the Broncos to 16 wins in 2009-10 and a trip to the West Coast Conference Tournament semi-finals. In addition to Bryant being named the WCC Player of the Year, Kevin Foster was named the WCC Newcomer of the Year. Three Broncos were named to the WCC All-Freshman team with the trio breaking 10 Bronco freshmen records.
 
It was a record-setting year for the Broncos, who won the 2008 Cable Car Classic with an 89-88 overtime win vs. UTEP. Bryant became the first Bronco in school history to score 1,600+ points, grab 1,100+ rebounds and block 200+ shots. Bryant finished his career at Santa Clara No. 1 in rebounds (1,152), No. 1 in blocks (246) and No. 6 in scoring (1,667). He was No. 1 in the country in double-doubles, rebounds per game and total rebounds during regular season play.
 
Foster's 85 three-pointers last season broke two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash's Bronco record. Nash set the SCU record in 1995 when he made 84. Foster also broke the single season record for three pointers attempted with 232, breaking the Bronco record set by Kyle Bailey in 2005 when he attempted 198. In addition, Marc Trasolini broke the Bronco record for single season shooting percentage, hitting 68.1% - shattering a 37-year old record set by Mike Stewart in 1972 when Stewart shot 64.7%.
 
Michael Santos and Ben Dowdell were both named to the WCC Academic Honor Roll with the men's team posting a 3.1 GPA in the Spring 2009 quarter.

Jennifer Mountain
Jennifer Mountain
Jennifer Mountain became the eighth Santa Clara head women's basketball coach in April 2008. Mountain came to the Mission Campus after serving seven seasons as the top assistant coach at Gonzaga, where she helped the Bulldogs to four-straight West Coast Conference regular season championships and one WCC tournament crown.
 
The Santa Clara women's basketball team ended the 2009-10 season in grand fashion at the 2010 WCC tournament in Las Vegas, winning twice to become the first No. 8 seed in tournament history to advance into the semifinals. It was the second-straight year Mountain's teams peaked when it mattered most. In her first year on the Mission Campus, Mountain guided the Broncos into the quarterfinals of the WCC tournament after routing rival Saint Mary's 82-55.
 
Mountain's SCU program is setting the standard for community service and academic achievement within the framework of intercollegiate athletics. In less than two years, Mountain has done a remarkable job in creating a culture that allows for anything but academic mediocrity. Her student-athletes owned a combined grade point average of 3.42 in 2009.
 
"Jen understands what Santa Clara is all about," said Santa Clara Athletic Director Dan Coonan. "It's about competitive basketball but it's about so much more than that. Educating men and women for competence, conscience, and compassion -- that's what Santa Clara really stands for. We believe that and live that here. I think Jen is the perfect person who embodies those kinds of values."
