Binford collected 2,563 votes (38.31 percent), outpacing the field and her closest competitor, Western Illinois head coach JD Gravina (2,486 votes, 37.16 percent).
This year the Bobcats finished 25-7 and recorded a Big Sky Double by not only winning the league’s regular season crown, but then they rolled through the conference tournament for its first such win since 1993. They parlayed all that into a D1 tournament bid where they finished the program’s winningest season ever at the hands of the Washington Huskies in the NCAA Tournament.
Congratulations to Montana State head coach Tricia Binford!
