Freddie Murray is entering his sixth year on the coaching staff for the Grambling State University women’s basketball program and his fourth year at the helm as head coach. In 2017-18, with the expectations at a program all-time high, Murray guided the Lady Tiger program to a 19-win season as Grambling State went 19-14 overall and 13-5 in SWAC play. Grambling State enjoyed the national spotlight in early January when Shakyla Hill became the fourth NCAA Division I women’s basketball player to record a quadruple double. The Lady Tigers ended the regular season as third seed in the SWAC Women’s Basketball Tournament as GSU defeated Alcorn State, Texas Southern and Southern to win the SWAC Championship for the first time since 1999. In the NCAA Division I Tournament, Grambling State fell No. 2 Baylor to cap a great season for the Lady Tigers. Shakyla Hill and Jazmin Boyd were named to the All-SWAC postseason teams, with Hill earning SWAC Tournament MVP honors. Coach Murray began his college-coaching career at his alma mater Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss., first as a volunteer assistant with the men’s program in 1999 and later as a graduate assistant coach (2001-2003). There he helped guide the Lady Tigers to the 2003 Southwestern Athletic Conference regular season title and finish with 23 wins that season. He also assisted in coaching 6’7 center Amie Williams who would the SWAC Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team all-conference player in 2003. Murray, a Jackson, Mississippi native, holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Jackson State (1990). #Gramfam #Sports #Grambling #Basketball #STWFmedia sportstalkwithfriends.com
