Recruiting is the lifeblood of successful college athletic teams and no one is more committed to the process than Razorback assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Zenarae Antoine.

"Coach Z", as she is referred to by recruits and friends, serves as the recruiting coordinator for the Razorbacks and her impact made immediate waves for Arkansas in her first two seasons with the team.

She opened with back-to-back nationally-ranked recruiting classes that included two players who earned All-SEC recognition as freshmen (Lyndsay Harris and C'eira Ricketts).

The newcomers for the 2010-11 season have that same elite-level potential and expectations are equally high this year.  Arkansas has five newcomers who are all expected to have an impact on the Razorbacks.

"Working at the University of Arkansas has been a wonderful experience," Antoine said.  "From the faculty and staff to the student body and athletic department, Arkansas embodies all that is essential about the college experience.

"I really enjoy recruiting," Antoione continued.  "I have had so many wonderful experiences meeting people and traveling.  I really believe in what we're doing here at Arkansas and its a joy to be able to share that with others and encourage them to be a part of it.

Managing the Razorbacks' extensive recruiting data base as the staff's recruiting coordinator, Antoine also works with the wing guards and small forwards and serving as the coaching staff's liaison with the Razorback academic staff.

Active in the community, Antoine was the team's liaison with the local Susan G. Komen group for Arkansas' Pink Zonegame.  Along with her work with the Razorback academic staff, she is also the women's basketball team liaison to the student-athlete welfare and LifeSkills program.

Prior to Arkansas, Antoine worked with Collen as the recruiting coordinator at Louisville, and guided the Cardinals to nationally-ranked recruiting classes her four seasons at UL.  Her last two recruiting classes were No. 26 for 2006 and No. 25 for 2007.  Among the most notable signees for the Cardinals were Kodak All-American and 2007 Big East Player of the Year Angel McCoughtry and Kodak Junior College All-American Helen Johnson.

Prior to Louisville, Antoine spent two seasons as an assistant at Ohio University where she was responsible for recruiting for the Bobcats.  Antoine also has one season as an assistant for College of Charleston.

Antoine received her master's from Ohio where her coaching career began as a graduate assistant.

During her playing career at Colorado State, Antoine was a three-year starter for the Rams.  She played her senior season for Collen as CSU went 24-6 and reached the NCAA second round during his first season as head coach.

"As a former player for Coach Collen, I can reassure everyone that not only is he a great thinker of the game, but he is a very caring, thoughtful and kind person," Antoine said.  "He is a proven winner, and what I can promise the community, our student-athletes and our recruits is that through Coach Collen's leadership we will work hard and take the Razorbacks to new heights."

Working with posts and guards during her coaching career, Antoine was an anchor in the middle for CSU during her playing days.  She finished her career third in blocked shots and seventh in rebounding.  She also ranks high for single season rebounds and blocked shots.  During her career, CSU had two league titles and two NCAA appearances.

Antoine is married to Ronald Antoine who is the wide receivers coach at South Alabama University.  Antoine was a Katy, Texas, resident and earned her bachelor's degree in physical science with minors in geology and statistics from CSU in 1998, and her master's in athletic administration at Ohio in 2000. Antoine is a member of the WBCA and a 2002 graduate of the Women's Coaches Academy. The Antoines have twin sons, Zavier and Zachary, and a yellow lab named Daisy.
