OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Miami has named DeUnna Hendrix as the new head coach of women’s basketball.

Hendrix comes to Oxford from High Point University, where she was the head coach for seven seasons. She ranks third among Panther women’s basketball coaches with 125 wins and amassed an 89-43 mark in the Big South.

In 2018-19, Hendrix led High Point to a 22-9 record and a 15-3 record in Big South competition, earning an invite to the WNIT for the second time during her tenure. During Hendrix’s time with the Panthers, the Kokomo, Indiana-native has coached three Big South Players of the Year, five All-Big South First Team members, 15 all-conference players and five players that earned all-freshman accolades, including one Big South Freshman of the Year honoree.

"After a national search it was clear that DeUnna was the right choice with strong Midwest ties to lead our women’s basketball program,” said athletic director David Sayler. “Her success on and off the court, combined with seven years of successful head coaching experience makes her the ideal fit to continue to move this program in a championship direction.”

Miami will introduce Hendrix at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
