Jody Wynn enters her third season as the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at the University of Washington. Under Wynn's direction, the Huskies have steadily improved while rebuilding over the last two years, posting an overall record of 18-44 at UW and an overall record of 155-163 in 10 seasons as a head coach.

The 2018-19 season saw the Huskies record an 11-21 overall record while playing the 14th-toughest schedule based on average opponent winning percentage according to herhoopstats.com. Washington played 17 games against team which made it to the post-season including facing nine opponents which reached the NCAA Tournament. Wynn helped guide the Huskies to an impressive run through the Pac-12 Tournament to end the year.

The Huskies then pulled off a massive upset, beating the No. 3 seed (and No. 11 ranked) Oregon State 68-67 to reach the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals for just the third time in program history. 

Wynn’s first season with the Huskies was a tough, rebuilding campaign which culminated in a 7-23 overall record.

Despite being undersized and undermanned, the Huskies still led the Pac-12 in turnovers forced, forcing 17.80 per game. Washington also ranked third in steals with 9.3 per game and was second in three-pointers made at 8.5 made per contest. In addition, sophomore Amber Melgoza earned All-Pac-12 honors after averaging 19.0 points per game. The Huskies reached the first round of the Pac-12 tournament, battling No. 5 Cal all the way to wire before missing a potential game-tying three-pointer in the final seconds in a 71-68 loss.
