Cherie (pronounced Sha-REE) Hogg is in her second season as an assistant women's basketball coach at Indiana.
Hogg was instrumental in the development of the 2007 Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year Jamie Braun and All-Big Ten Third Team selection Sarah McKay.
Hogg, who spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Hofstra University under Felisha Legette-Jack, helped transform the Pride into a national postseason tournament team.
During Legette-Jack and Hogg's two years at Hofstra, the Pride advanced to the 2006 Women's National Invitation Tournament and Hofstra ranked among the CAA's top three in scoring offense (second, 69.5 ppg), field goal percentage defense (.379), rebounding offense (second, 43.0), rebounding margin (third, +3.9), assists per game (second, 16.0), steals (second, 11.03), offensive rebounds (second, 16.73), defensive rebounding (second, 26.27) and three-point field goals per game (third, 5.37).
Hogg came to Hofstra after two years as an assistant coach at her alma mater, UNLV. She played a large role in several areas of the Rebel program, including scouting, recruiting, compliance, academic liaison and summer camp. She was also the Director of Summer Camps at UNLV. Hogg served as an assistant coach at Washington College in Chestertown, Md., in 1994-95.
Prior to Hogg's tenure as a UNLV assistant coach, she played professional basketball overseas in her native Australia, Holland, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Spain. While playing in Australia, she helped the Adelaide Lightening to a third consecutive national championship in 1996. In 2000-01, she helped the Rhondda Rebels in Wales, United Kingdom to a 37-1 record and the National League, National Playoff and National Cup titles. Hogg followed that season by helping Puig Den Valls in Ibiza, Spain, to a 30-2 record and the Premier Division championship in 2001-02.
Her professional playing career also included coaching stints with youth programs affiliated with her professional clubs in Holland and Australia, and Hogg served as a police officer for the South Australian Police Department from 1997-2000.
Hogg enjoyed a stellar playing career at UNLV that culminated with the Rebels' appearance in the 1994 NCAA Tournament. Just the fourth player in school history to record 100 assists and 100 steals in the same season, Hogg still holds UNLV single season marks for steals (129) and three-point field goal percentage (.456) and the single-game record for steals (11). She ranks ninth in career assists at UNLV (319). Hogg was an honorable mention all-league selection as a junior and first team pick as a senior.
A 1994 UNLV graduate with a bachelor's degree in athletic training, Hogg was the 1992 California JUCO Player of the Year at Lassen Community College in Susanville, Calif. She also earned an associate's degree in math and science. Hogg began her basketball career as a member of the Australian "train-on" teams from 1986-88 and earned an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship in 1988.
Hogg is also a nominee for the California Junior College Hall of Fame.
