Mike Sotsky completed his third season as a member of Tommy Amaker’s coaching staff in 2018-19.

For the second year in a row, and the seventh time in nine seasons, Harvard earned the Ivy League championship. Bryce Aiken was a unanimous All-Ivy League first-team selection, while Noah Kirkwood became Harvard’s fourth Ivy League Rookie of the Year under Amaker. The Crimson capped the 2018-19 season with its second-straight trip to the NIT, where it earned the first win in the event in program history, over Georgetown (71-68).

The Crimson captured its sixth Ivy League crown in program history in 2017-18, and earned its second-ever berth to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). Seth Towns capped a tremendous season as the Ivy League Player of the Year and All-America selection, while Chris Lewis and Justin Bassey also garnered All-Ivy recognition. Harvard won 18 games for the second-straight season, doing so while playing one of the nation's toughest schedules.

In his first year on staff with the Crimson, Harvard appeared in the inaugural Ivy League tournament. The Crimson - the 10th-youngest team according to KenPom rankings - finished 18-10 overall, including a 10-4 mark in Ancient Eight play. 

Sotsky worked with Duke in 2015-16, serving as the program’s staff assistant. With the Blue Devils, Sotsky helped with scouting, recruiting, day-to-day operations and team video needs.

Sotsky was a senior manager on the Blue Devils 2015 NCAA championship team and was the 2015 co-recipient of the Gopal Varadhan Award, presented annually to the program’s top upperclassman manager.

The Wyckoff, New Jersey native graduated from Duke in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts, double majoring in History and Public Policy.
