GCU WBB Head Coach Molly Miller Joins the Podcast

Grand Canyon women’s basketball head coach Molly Miller is a winner. Plain and simple. At Division II Drury, Miller was 67-1 over her final two seasons and led the Panthers to a perfect 32-0 season in 2019-20. And all she has done at GCU is bring that winning mentality to the desert. The Lopes are 13-3 overall and 5-1 in WAC play, sitting in second place behind undefeated California Baptist.

Miller attributes her success to her players buying in to the culture. That culture consists of being in shape, putting forth effort night in and night out and focusing on controlling what the Lopes can control. GCU features a full-court press and runs very few offensive sets. Miller wants her team to outplay, out-hustle and simply outwork their opponents.

The crazy part about all of this is the Lopes have just one senior on the roster. The fact that the youth on GCU’s roster have bought into Miller and her staff so quickly is impressive. And doing it all amidst a pandemic where practices are limited, workouts are limited and interactions are limited makes it even more impressive for Miller and her staff.

GCU faces a difficult two weeks. The Lopes go on the road for the first time in nearly a month. GCU travels to Orem to take on Utah Valley in a series that was moved up nearly three weeks. The Lopes then travel to Riverside the following week to take on undefeated CBU.

It is a challenge that Miller is looking forward to. And it is all about the culture of the program.
