Luke Flockerzi, head coach of the UR men’s basketball team, has been named a finalist for the 2013 Glenn Robinson National Coach of the Year Award.

The award is given every year to the top Division III men’s basketball coach. The name originated from Glenn Robinson, who served as head coach at Franklin & Marshall College. Robinson has a record of over 800 wins, making the NCAA Division III playoffs with F&M 22 times.

As one of 15 award finalists, Flockerzi stands out with an equally impressive record. In the most recent 2012-13 season, he led the Yellowjackets to a 22-5 record and a 10-4 record in the University Athletic Association. UR earned a spot in the NCAA Division III championships but lost in a buzzer beater against Ithaca College in the second round.

Despite the recent and heartfelt loss, the ’Jackets ended their season with a shared UAA title with Washington University in St. Louis and Emory University. This was the second UAA title Flockerzi earned in his three seasons at UR. In only three seasons as head coach of the Yellowjackets, Flockerzi’s overall record is an astounding 61-19 (.714).

Prior to his current position, Flockerzi served as assistant coach at UR from 2006 to 2007 before accepting the role of head coach at Skidmore College from 2007 to 2008. Flockerzi proved his knack for coaching at Skidmore, where he won 30 games in three seasons and brought the team to the Liberty League playoffs.

Flockerzi carried over his success to UR. In his first season, Flockerzi advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 12-2 record.

During UR’s 2012-13 season, the ’Jackets held an undefeated 18-0 record and ranked first in the poll.

Under coach Flockerzi, the team has held numerous other records, including its foul shooting accuracy.

In the 2012-13 season, the Yellowjackets shot 80.4% from the line (434 of 540), which broke the previous year’s record of 78.0% (380 of 487).
