Marshall Ready for First Meeting at Middle Tennessee
Women's basketball looking for first C-USA road win since 2012
Amy Reed is now in her second season as a Thundering Herd graduate manager at her alma mater.
One of the most decorated players to compete at Marshall during its eight-year stint in the Mid-American Conference, Reed stands as the sixth most prolific shot blocker in school history. The former Herd center amassed 66 blocks from 1999-2003, including a career-high 36 in 2002-03 - the third best single-season total in MU annals. Her career numbers also place her in the top-20 in rebounds, field goals made, free throws made and free throws attempted.
Reed, 25, kickstarted her coaching career at Geary High School in Oklahoma City, Okla., where she served as an assistant basketball coach and head softball coach after her days in the Green & White. Reed started 71 games for the Herd, with over half of her collegiate experience being played under the watchful eye of Royce Chadwick.
"Amy added to her game by being in the high school arena for a few years," Chadwick said. "She brings that experience along with her playing experience back to our university. She is helping us with all facets of our program and is a great young lady who will be a tremendous college basketball coach."
The Schuykill Haven, Pa., native graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical education from Marshall in 2003 and is currently working toward a master's degree in athletic administration.
