FULTON – Itawamba Community College’s Nanci Gray was named women’s basketball coach of the year by the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) on Monday.

Gray, who is in her sixth year as head coach of the Lady Indians, has led her team to a 24-2 overall record and a 12-0 record in MACJC play, earning the North Division Championship during the regular season. Her squad also finished undefeated inside the state for the first time in the history of the program.

In January, Gray won her 550th career game at ICC before capturing her second MACJC title this past Thursday with a 74-67 win over Copiah-Lincoln Community College. She has been a part of all three state titles in the history of the Lady Indians’ basketball program as a player (1975) and as a coach (2008, 12).

The Lady Indians (24-2) will continue their postseason play in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 23 Tournament Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. against Coahoma Community College at A.E. Woods Coliseum on the campus of Mississippi College in Clinton, MS.
