Korina Baker will be the Interim Head Coach for the Cardinals beginning the 2020-21 season. The former Freeman (WA) High School standout returned to Coeur d'Alene to join the Cardinal staff as an assistant coach in 2018. Baker was the starting point guard on the NIC National Championship women's basketball team that swept through the 2011 NJCAA national tournament by an average victory margin of 20 points. Baker was a two year starter for the Cardinals, earning NJCAA Region 18 1st Team honors as a sophomore. Following graduation from NIC, Baker transferred to NCAA Division I Southern Methodist University for the 2012-14 seasons. As a junior, Baker helped the Mustangs win the title in Conference USA, and her team advanced to the Women's National Invitational Tournament. In Baker's senior season SMU switched conferences to the prestigious American Athletic Conference, competing with traditional national powers UConn, Cincinnati, Temple, Houston, and Wichita State, amongst others. Baker earned her Bachelor's degree in Sociology from SMU and returned to the Spokane area after graduation. She has a three year old son, Aiden.
