McCray Named to C-USA Coaches Circle
By ODU Athletics
DALLAS -- Old Dominion women's basketball head coach Nikki McCray-Penson has been named to the Conference USA Coaches Circle, the league office announced Wednesday morning.
In her second year at ODU, McCray has pioneered not only one of the biggest turnarounds in program history, but in the entire nation this season.
After winning just eight games a season ago, McCray and the Monarchs are 20-9 entering the Conference USA Tournament. The 12-win improvement is the third-largest in the NCAA this season and the second-largest in ODU women's basketball history.
Tina Langley of Rice was named the C-USA Coach of the Year. Middle Tennessee's Rick Insell and Marshall's Tony Kemper were also named to the Coaches Circle.
Old Dominion, the No. 5 seed, opens the C-USA Tournament today at 12:30 p.m. ET against No. 12 Florida Atlantic at The Star in Frisco, Texas.
