MSSU Women add Anderson as Assistant Coach



Joplin, Mo. – Missouri Southern women's basketball coach Ronnie Ressel has announced the addition of Chamissa Anderson as a new assistant coach and head JV coach for the Lions.
"We are extremely excited to add coach Anderson to our staff," Ressel said. "She had been at KCK the last three years as an assistant coach working for coach McKinstry and was a part of KCK's 2016 National Championship team.  Coach Anderson is a high-energy coach with a great work ethic and a passion to help young ladies be successful."
Anderson comes to Southern after three years with the Lady Blue Devil Women's Basketball Team at Kansas City Kansas Community College. Anderson assisted with recruiting, video coordination, individual work outs, practice and game preparation and monitoring study halls.

In 2017-18, KCKCC was ranked in the top 20 during the season with a 21-11 record and a team that included 14 freshmen on the roster. Freshman Lillie Moore was named All-Conference and All-Region. The team included five Lady Blue Devils ranked in the top five in the region in various different offensive categories. 

In 2016-17, The Lady Blue Devils ranked top-20 in five of the twelve regular season polls. Despite the loss of four starters and 80 percent of the offense and rebounding from the national championship team, the Blue Devils finished 19-13 while competing in arguably the most competitive conference in the nation. Two Blue Devils, Brooklyn Wagler and Brie Tauai, were named to the NJCAA second All-Region VI team.
In 2015-2016 the Lady Blue Devils reached 33 wins for only the 2nd time in program history. The team's 33rd win was a 81-59 win over Illinois Central to win the 2016 NJCAA Division II National Championship; first time ever in school history.  The team won every National tournament game by a margin of 19 points per game. The Blue Devils were led by All-American and National Tournament MVP Cheyenne North and All-Tournament selections Erin Anderson and Brooklyn Wagler. 

For two seasons (16-17 & 17-18), Anderson has also helped coach the Next Level Eclipse AAU basketball team in the Kansas City area. 
Anderson finished her collegiate career at Trinity International University. As a two-year starter for the Lady Trojans she averaged double figures in both scoring and rebounding and was ranked 24th in total rebounds in NAIA Division II in her senior season in 2010-2011. She graduated with a BA in Sports and Wellness Management in 2011, she continued at Trinity as volunteer assistant coach. Prior to TIU, Anderson played one year of collegiate basketball at Siena Heights University before transferring to Ellsworth Community College in 2009. While at Ellsworth, she set a single game record for rebounding and is listed in the Top five rebounders in a single season in Ellsworth history.
In addition, her coaching experience includes two years as head junior varsity coach and assistant varsity coach at Chicagoland Jewish High School and coaching AAU basketball for Full Package/All In Athletics in the Chicagoland area. 

"I'm extremely excited to work with the staff here at Missouri Southern," Anderson said. "This is a great opportunity and I can't wait to get to impact another women's basketball program and I'm ready to get back on the court. This is one of the premier Division II conferences in America and it'll be great to compete with some of the best women's basketball programs in the country."
