During the 2009-10 basketball season I was hired by NC State’s Alumni Association to work with them on a behind-the-scenes story on Kellie Harper, the university’s new head women’s basketball coach. I was given amazing access to the team both on and off the court during this story. 

Yesterday it was announced that Coach Harper would not return for the 2013-14 season. I was sadden to hear that as I had so much fun working for her. She was full of life and such a fierce competitor. She was really kind to me and the writer, Cherry Crayton, as we worked on this story.
