The women’s basketball coach, Terri Williams-Flournoy began her weekly radio show, “The Coach Flo Show,” Monday, Jan.14.

The show began at 6:30 p.m. at Piccolo inside the The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

According to Flourney, listeners can expect a lot of entertainment and fun from the show this season.

The radio broadcast is set to air on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at Piccolo.

“I think you will hear a lot about how our program is going and a lot about how are players going and an opportunity to talk to a lot of people,” Flournoy said.

Flournoy said that her goal for the show this season is to get as many people as possible in to support it and to then get them in the stands to watch the team play.

According to Andy Burcham, host of the show, there has been a coach’s show for a few years now.

“We’re here to promote Auburn women’s basketball, to hopefully build more of a fans base for games, and we want to bring some folks in to Piccolo as well and help their business,” Burcham said.

The show has previously been held at Logan’s Roadhouse, Tino’s Mexican Restaurant and Amsterdam Café.

“Coach Flo is great,” said Susan Nunnelly, former women’s basketball coach and current public address announcer. “She has a great personality and I love her style of play.”

Nunnelly said that all you have to do is come and watch one game and you will be back; the girls play and work hard and it’s a fun game to watch.

Andreas Ana Gnostopoulos, manager of Piccolo, said that they are excited about having the Coach Flo Show there this season.

“Having Coach Flo, having her reputation and having her talk about the team and the games coming up and past games, bring in a whole new crowd that we haven’t had in here before,” Gnostopoulos said.

“This is an exciting basketball team that is being put on the floor and you have to just come out and look at it and it will have you coming back,” Flournoy said. “You will see a lot of pressure, pressure, pressure.”

Flournoy says that the Auburn family and the university have really been good to her and her family.

The Auburn Women’s Basketball team is set to take on Tennessee Thursday, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. at the Auburn Arena. The team is currently 9-0 at home this season.

“ If you haven’t come out to see them this season, you should,” said Matthew Crouch, Associate Director of Media Relations for women’s basketball. “ They’re a lot of fun.”

“Student athletes work hard; it’s a lot of practice and a lot of time and what better way to show your appreciation than to get the fans out here to watch them play.” Flournoy said.
