Carla D. Morrow recently wrapped up her seventh season as an assistant women's basketball coach at Xavier University and her first under head coach Brian Neal.
In Morrow's five seasons at XU, the Musketeers have put together a 116-43 overall record and a 57-13 mark in Atlantic 10 play. Morrow has helped Xavier to six Atlantic 10 Championships (2008, 2010 and 2011 Tournament and 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 Regular Season) and NCAA Tournament berths in 2008, `09, `10 and `11. The Musketeers advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in 2010.
The 2010-11 campaign was one for the record books as the Musketeers posted their second consecutive undefeated Atlantic 10 Conference season with a 14-0 mark, becoming the first team to accomplish the feat in A-10 history. Morrow worked closely with post players, including 2011 WNBA draftees Amber Harris and Ta'Shia Phillips, who were chosen fourth and eighth respectively.
Morrow came to Xavier after spending two years at the University of Colorado as the Lady Buffs' director of basketball operations. While at Colorado, Morrow was responsible for organizing the team travel and film exchange, coordinating Colorado's women's basketball summer camps and publicity events while also serving as the team's academic, equipment and compliance liaison.
Prior to her time with the Buffaloes, Morrow served as the director of basketball operations at Missouri State University, formerly known as Southwest Missouri State. While with the Bears, Morrow's duties included film exchange and handling day-to-day operations within the program. During her time at SMS, the Bears won the 2005 WNIT and made an appearance in the 2004 NCAA Tournament.
As a player, Morrow was a four-year standout guard at the University of Tulsa from 1998-2002. Morrow was the first player in Tulsa history with 1,000 points and 600 rebounds in a career. She finished her career ranking second in 3-point field goals (122), total field goals (427), rebounds (642), steals (201) and games played on the Golden Hurricane career charts and was third in scoring with 1,115 points.
Morrow was named to the All-Western Athletic Conference Second Team as a senior in 2002, averaging 12.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. She signed a free agent contract with the WNBA's Seattle Storm in 2002 to become the first Golden Hurricane to sign a professional contract.
Morrow graduated from Tulsa in 2002 with a bachelor's degree in sport management. She spent the 2002-03 season as the freshman and varsity basketball coach at Tulsa Central High School. Morrow earned her master's degree in physical education from Southwest Missouri State in 2004.
A native of Houston, Morrow graduated from Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas, in 1998 where she lettered in basketball, volleyball and soccer.
