Episode 200: Coach Jesse McMillan (Head Boy's Basketball Coach Norcross High School) Norcross, GA (2X GHSA State Champions)
Jesse has been the Head Coach for Boys Basketball at Norcross High School for 11 years and has been a teacher and coach at Norcross for 19 years. He spent 12 years in the Norcross High School Language Arts Department before transitioning to Health & PE classes. During his time as head coach, Norcross won two state titles (2011, 2013) and finished state runner-up in 2017 and 2018. He has a winning mark of better than 80% in Georgia’s largest and toughest athletic classification. His Norcross teams participate in showcases and invitationals across the nation. Jesse grew up in a family of educators and knew early on that teaching and coaching was something he wanted to do. He spends about 335 days a year at Norcross working on the basketball program, and during the season many of those days are over fourteen hours long. Jesse is successful in part because he holds the players in his program to a high standard and evolves the program from being “coach lead” to “player lead”, empowering the team to make suggestions and approach during games, and hold each other accountable. Coach McMillan has been recognized in the Gwinnett Daily Post as showing “ a great ability to build chemistry [among the players]”. His fondest moments and most satisfying victories are Final Four and State Championship victories and memorable playoff wins versus Pebblebrook (2017), McEachern (2018), and Grayson (2019). Those games stand out because the team rose up against great odds and competed at the highest level. He’s also a bit superstitious; he makes sure to use his lucky pencil to fill out the scorebook at each game! Coach McMillan, his wife Elizabeth, and two children (Elyse and Mason) are long-time Norcross and Peachtree Corners residents. We thank them for their support and sacrifice to make the Norcross basketball program the best it can be! jesse_mcmillan@gwinnett.k12.ga.us  @NorcrossHoops Check out Practice Planner Live Landing Page : https://www.practiceplannerlive.com/backoffice?referralCode=lFybQ8WxF8 Free Trial Page : https://www.practiceplannerlive.com/backoffice/auth/trial?referralCode=lFybQ8WxF8

Episode 190: Coach Mountain MacGillivray (Head Women's Basketball Coach LaSalle University ( Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
Mountain MacGillivray, a Philadelphia native who helped lead Quinnipiac to seven straight 20-win seasons and a trip to the Sweet 16 in 2017, was appointed the ninth head coach in La Salle University women's basketball history in April of 2018. He begins his third year at the helm of the program in 2020-21. During the 2019-20 campaign, MacGillivray's Explorers showed vast improvements from year one to two of his tenure, including the program's best start since 2006 at 6-1. The Blue & Gold more than doubled both its overall (13) and Atlantic 10 (7) win totals in year two. The victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions was La Salle's first over a Power 5 program since November 2015 and first over a Big 10 school since taking down Northwestern in December of 1988. The Explorers also swept Big 5 and A-10 rival Saint Joseph's for the first time ever. A gritty win over the Hawks inside Hagan Arena was the first since 1998. MacGillivray spent the previous nine seasons at Quinnipiac, including the last three as the associate head coach. The Bobcats had tremendous success during MacGillivray's tenure, qualifying for the NCAA Tournament in four of his last five seasons, including three wins in NCAA play over the final two. MacGillivray's role with the Bobcats evolved through the years and one of his greatest responsibilities is within the recruiting of prospective student-athletes. His success in the recruiting landscape has only improved through the years as his last two incoming classes featured the four highest-ranked recruits in program history. In his eight years with the Bobcats, MacGillivray helped guide 18 All-Conference players, including 10 in his final three seasons, as well as three Defensive Player of the Year award winners and three Tournament MVPs. Quinnipiac went undefeated in the MAAC in 2017-18 for the third time in six years, winning the conference regular season title for the fifth time in six seasons. After earning the league's automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament with a victory over Marist in the MAAC title game, the Bobcats earned a No. 9 seed and defeated Miami (Fla.) in the opening round. In 2016-17, MacGillivray helped Quinnipiac to a pair of upset wins in NCAA Tournament action, defeating Marquette and Miami (Fla.) en route to the Sweet 16. The Bobcats won four conference championships and averaged 26 wins over thatt seven year span, and head coach Tricia Fabbri won MAAC Coach of the Year four times with the contributions of MacGillivray. MacGillivray has 13 years of experience coaching at the high school and AAU levels, helping turn Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, Pennsylvania into one of the most successful prep programs in the country. He also guided the Philadelphia AAU Lady Running Rebels from 2000-02 and Delaware Valley Comets AAU team in 2006. A 1996 graduate of Temple with a degree in journalism, MacGillivray and his wife Grace have eight children: Chiara, Mary, Brigid, Sean, Catherine, Joseph, Theresa, and Emily. macgillivray@lasalle.edu @LaSalle_WBB https://t.co/2wYlqfDEZh?amp=1
