NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The University of New Orleans has extended women’s basketball coach Keeshawn Davenport’s contract through the 2017-18 season.

Director of Athletics Derek Morel, in a news release Tuesday, announced the extension. Further details were not released.

Davenport is entering her 13th season at UNO, her fifth as head coach. The Lady Privateers had winless seasons in 2011 and 2013 but had four consecutive Southland Conference victories to end the 2014-15 schedule.

Morel says the university was encouraged by the program’s progress under Davenport’s leadership and expects the program to “continue to rise” this season and beyond.
