Press Release - updated: Oct 20, 2017 18:52 EDT
AVONDALE, Ariz., October 20, 2017 - In the world of professional sports, many athletes turn to coaching after retiring. Success on the playing field does not always translate to the sidelines.
Tamica Goree is the exception to that rule. She has become one of the nation's top basketball coaches. Also, she is helping many student-athletes prepare for the next level of their career.
She knows about playing at a high level. Tamica Goree is a former top NCAA basketball star from Indiana State University. She earned high honors playing point guard for the Sycamores. She attributes her success to her mental toughness.
It is great to see a player you coach make it to the next level, but I love when a player excels in the classroom too.
"To play at the college level in any sport, you need to be mentally tough," Goree explains. "That edge could mean a player being at the top of their sport, or just another player."
