Boucek served as an assistant coach for the Storm under Anne Donovan during the 2003, 2004 and 2005 seasons and was an integral part of the 2004 WNBA championship team. Additionally, Boucek served as the head coach for the now defunct Sacramento Monarchs and compiled a record of 40-41 during her two-plus seasons (2007-2009) with the organization. With her title in Sacramento, Boucek became the first person in WNBA history to be a player, assistant coach and head coach in the league.

Boucek also played in Iceland in 1998 and was voted the country’s best player after averaging 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists. She returned to Cleveland for the 1998 season but was forced to retire due to a career-ending back injury.

A four-year starter at the University of Virginia (1992-96), Boucek helped lead the Cavaliers to four regular-season ACC Championships and three NCAA Elite Eight appearances. She was a two-time GTE Academic All-America team member and two-time ACC selection.
