ISU women's basketball hires final assistant

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State women’s basketball coach Teri Moren announced the addition of Joey Wells to her coaching staff Monday. Wells comes to Indiana State as an associate coach after spending the past five seasons on the staff at Lamar University.

“I’m really excited to be here at Indiana State and have the opportunity to work with coach Moren and the rest of the staff,” Wells said. “I’m excited to be back in the Midwest where I’m very familiar with the area. The Missouri Valley Conference is a great women’s basketball conference and I’m ready to get going. We’ve got some really good players coming back this season and will have the chance to bring in some more in the future.”

While at Lamar, Wells assisted the Cardinals to a Southland Conference championship in 2010 while the team averaged 21 wins per season in his time on the staff. In 2011, Wells was named a Top 25 mid-major women’s basketball assistant coach by CollegeInsider.com.

Prior to coming to Lamar, Wells served as an assistant coach for Division II Missouri Western from 2004-07. The team averaged 23 wins over his final two seasons there, including a 30-4 mark in 2006-2007.

Wells is a 1996 graduate of Fresno Pacific University, having earned a bachelor's degree in physical education. He and wife Tina have three children — Tanner, Alex and Carlie.

Wells joins John Marcum and Sara Riedeman, who also joined the women’s basketball coaching staff at Indiana State during the summer.
