Spencer Wood joined the Las Positas College men's basketball coaching staff in 2018. He brings great experience as a former player within the program, playing two seasons for Coach Giacomazzi. Wood was a member of two of the most successful teams in program history, contributing to back to back Sweet 16 appearances between 2015-2017. Wood was one of the best three-point shooters on the team and a key vocal leader, which were key factors in helping him earn a scholarship to continue his playing career at Simpson University.
After earning a starting spot with Simpson as a junior, Wood sustained a season-ending knee injury that put a stop to his playing career. After being such a great teammate and competitor, Coach Giacomazzi reached out to Wood and offered him the opportunity to join the coaching staff. Wood was eager to stay around the game and did a great job in his first season, offering tremendous value to the coaching staff and earning a great deal of respect from the players within the program.
Wood is continuing his education this fall at Cal State-East Bay and is on track to complete his bachelor's degree in 2020.
