New Lady Monarchs basketball coach Nikki McCray-Penson met the ODU faithful on Wednesday afternoon.

McCray-Penson becomes the seventh head coach in ODU women's basketball history.

She brings quite the resume as a player and assistant coach. That resume includes 2 gold medals for Team USA, 2 All-American years at Tennessee and 3 years as a WNBA  All-Star. Add to that 4 different Hall of Fames. 

McCray-Penson had been as assistant coach for national champion South Carolina for the last 8 years.

She brings with her a winning culture as she said, "I know what success looks like. I've been a part of it. I've been around it my whole entire life and that's what I want here. I want to get that tradition of winning back."
