Before entering coaching, Sinclair was a standout player for both McMaster and Victoria, leading the Vikes to a national title in the 2002-03 season.

Sinclair replaces interim head coach Brian Cheng, who was hired last year to take over the women’s program after former coach Taffe Charles took over the men’s team.

Carleton won its only U Sports women’s basketball championship in 2018.
