About Steve

Nine seasons at the helm and nine consecutive trips to the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball National Championship tournament. Coach Gomez's arrival to the LCU women's basketball program has certainly changed the foundation of the program. In those nine seasons at the helm, LCU has posted a 203-92 record under Gomez. LCU went 28-6 last season and made their second ever appearance in the Semifinals of the NAIA National Championship Tournament. They lost out to eventual national champions Oklahoma City to mark the second consecutive season they lost out to the team who would claim the title. LCU claimed their second Sooner Athletic Conference crown in program history, as they joined Oklahoma City as conference co-champions with a 21-1 record. They handed OCU their only loss of the season. Their 28 wins was a single-season program mark. LCU went 25-10 the prior season and marched into the Elite Eight for a third time in program history. The Lady Chaps, who finished third in the Sooner Athletic Conference, lost in the NAIA National Championship to evential national champion Azusa Pacific. LCU went 19-12 in the 2009/2010 season, which included a 13-9 finish in the Sooner Athletic Conference, and had their season come to an end in the National Tournament. The highlight of the season was an exhibition victory inside the United Spirit Arena against Texas Tech University. The Lady Chaps ranked eighth in the NAIA with a 44.9% field goal percentage. They were also fifth in the NAIA with a 76.7% free-throw percentage. In 2009/2010, the Lady Chaps finished with a solid 27-7 record and made a trip to the Sweet Sixteen of the National Tournament following a second-place Sooner Athletic Conference season. Gomez chalked up a milestone during the season, becoming the all-time women's basketball wins leader at LCU. LCU had a memorable 2007/2008 campaign, as the Lady Chaps made another voyage to the NAIA National Tournament. The 25-10 Lady Chaps completed a 25-10 season, which included a trip to the Elite Eight in the tournament for their second best finish in program history.
