Alexis Mezzetta begins her second season on the LMU women's basketball staff in 2013-14 and her first as the associate head coach.
Mezzetta was a four-year standout at UC San Diego, playing her final collegiate season under Elliott. She went on to join Elliott's coaching staff beginning in 2008-09 and was actively involved in all aspects of coaching, including scouting, player development and travel. She also oversaw the program's recruiting and alumni programs.
"Alexis has been my right-hand assistant for the past four years (at UCSD)," said LMU head coach Charity Elliott. "She is great with the players and has a great basketball mind. She understands and knows my system and has vast recruiting connections with AAU and club coaches in California."
Alongside Elliott, Mezzetta helped lead the Tritons to a 27-5 overall record in 2008-09, which tied the program's all-time mark for victories in a season. Mezzetta was on staff during one of the most successful stretches in program history, as UCSD has posted an overall record of 102-24 and won three CCAA Championships during her time with the team.
A three sport athlete at Justin-Siena High School in Napa, Mezzetta had a very successful playing career with the Tritons from 2004-08, helping guide UCSD to three consecutive NCAA DII Tournament appearances and a trip to the DII Final Four in 2006-07. She posted career averages of 3.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in a total of 102 games and averaged 5.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and a team-high 4.5 assists as a senior.
Mezzetta finished her career ranked in the top 10 in several categories at UCSD. In terms of Division II records, she currently ranks second all-time in career assists with 247, ninth in career three-pointers made with 54 and 10th in career games played with 102. During her four years with the program, the Tritons recorded an overall record of 92-30.
A native of Sonoma, Calif., Mezzetta graduated from UCSD in 2008 with a degree in biology. She went on to earn her Master's in coaching and athletic administration from Concordia University in Irvine in 2009.
