Drury’s Molly Miller is being honored again as the best women’s basketball coach in Division II.
Miller was named the U.S. Marine Corps/WBCA NCAA-II Coach of the Year for the second straight season Monday by the Women’s Basketball Coaches association.
“The WBCA is proud to announce Molly Miller as the 2020 recipient of the Pat Summitt Trophy presented to the WBCA NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year,” WBCA Executive Director Danielle M. Donehew said in a press statement. “We also congratulate the other coaches who were selected by their peers as finalists for this prestigious award. Molly is a rising star. For the second straight year, she was selected as the winner by her peers after leading her team to another exceptional season. The WBCA recognizes and applauds her leadership example as she serves her student-athletes, school, and community.”
This season marked Miller’s sixth year as head coach at Drury. She has a career winning percentage of .913 (180-17) and in the last two seasons her teams have only lost one game. In her career within the Great Lakes Valley Conference, Miller’s career mark is 105-5, and she has never had a team lose a game on their home court.
