Georgetown's Terri Williams-Flournoy and VCU's Shaka Smart.
May 2, 2011
WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Women's Basketball Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy made her way onto the Washington, D.C., scene on Saturday attending the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner (WHCD) held at the Washington Hilton. Williams-Flournoy was among 2,500 guests including journalists, celebrities and staffers.
"It was an unbelievable experience," said Williams-Flournoy. "There were so many impressive people there from all walks of life including entertainment, politics and the sports world. I have to thank Mike Harris and The Washington Times for the opportunity to attend this event."
Guests were treated to a keynote address by "Saturday Night Live" Head Writer Seth Meyers where he ribbed the President's youthfulness, the WHCD party scene and even fellow guest Donald Trump. That was followed by President Obama who jokingly addressed the recent birther issues with a scene from Disney's "The Lion King".
Williams-Flournoy was invited by The Washington Times and shared a table with journalists, ambassadors and a fellow coach in Virginia Commonwealth University's Shaka Smart who was also a guest of the Times.
The coaches traded a few thoughts on basketball, but spent much of the event enjoying the entertainment and fellow guests with a number of celebrities in attendance including musician John Legend, Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, NBA star Carmelo Anthony and mogul Russell Simmons.
"Shaka is one of the great up-and-coming coaches on the men's side of our profession- he is a great guy," said Williams-Flournoy.
After three 20-win seasons and the program's second-consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament, Williams-Flournoy has built Georgetown into one of the premier programs in the area. This past year, the Blue & Gray had five wins over nationally-ranked opponents and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the second time in program history before narrowly falling to top-seeded Connecticut.
Following this past season's success, Williams-Flournoy was selected to be an assistant coach with Team USA for the World University Games which will be held in China this summer.
