Saturday, July 2, 2011

Former Murray State guard Alaina Lee has been named assistant women’s basketball director of operations/video coordinator, Kansas University, coach Bonnie Henrickson announced Friday.

Lee replaces Katie Capps, who was promoted to KU’s director of operations.

“We’re very excited to bring someone of Alaina’s caliber to our program,” Henrickson said. “I first met her four years ago, and her passion for young people and the sport of basketball is something that has always stood out to me. Her background in education and her experience coaching at many different levels will be extremely beneficial to the Jayhawk basketball program.”

Lee is the 22nd-leading scorer in Murray State history with 861 points. She was an assistant coach at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, from 2008-10. She also has been coach in the Houston Elite AAU basketball program and as head basketball coach at the E.O. Smith Educational Center, where she also served as a physical education teacher.
