    Christelle N'Garsanet enters her first season as an assistant coach with Southern Illinois women's basketball.

    N'Garsanet follows SIU head coach Cindy Stein to Carbondale after serving as her assistant coach at Illinois Central College during the 2012-13 season. N'Garsanet was also an All-Conference player under Stein at Missouri before being selected in the 2006 WNBA Draft.

    N'Garsanet spent two seasons on the coaching staff at ICC, including a 2012-13 season during which the Cougars went 32-4 and finished third in the NJCAA Division II national tournament.

    Prior to her time at ICC, N'Garsanet spent two years working as an audit associate at KPMG in St. Louis following a two-year professional playing career. N'Garsanet played for the WNBA's New York Liberty during the 2006-07 season before spending one season playing in Poland. She also played for the Ivory Coast national team in 2000, 2001, 2009 and 2011.

    N'Garsanet played three seasons collegiately at Mizzou after transferring from ICC. She led the Tigers in rebounding and ranked second on the team in scoring during her junior and senior seasons, finishing with 870 points and 255 rebounds during her three years in Columbia, Mo. N'Garsanet was named Second-Team All-Big 12 during her senior season.

    N'Garsanet's lone season playing at ICC was a memorable one as she helped the Cougars to the 2003 NJCAA Division II national championship. That season also coincided with the final season of legendary coach Lorene Ramsey, who also coached Stein at ICC.

    A two-time Academic All-Big 12 selection, N'Garsanet has both a master's and bachelor's degree in accountancy from Mizzou.
