Fun Fact: Women’s basketball moving toward Sun Belt play

Women’s basketball head coach Shanice Stephens brought a unique characteristic with her when she joined UNT in 2008. She was:

A. First coach with WNBA experience.

B. Youngest coach in the Sun Belt Conference.

C. She coached at other Sun Belt Conference schools.

D. First Mean Green coach to schedule women’s power North Carolina.

Shanice Stephens, women's basketball coachThe correct answer is B: Stephens, right, 37, was – and is - the youngest coach in the Sunbelt Conference. But her experience and success exceed that of some more experienced coaches. Before joining the Mean Green, she was associate head coach at Clemson University, in the powerful Atlantic Coast Conference, and coached at Rice University, when Rice was an annual 20-game winner and nationally ranked.
