    Congratulations to Barbara Jo Smith who was named the 2019 Naismith Women’s Collegiate Official of the Year Award Winner by the Atlanta Tip Off Club.  Barb was presented this lifetime achievement award at the regional clinic in Indianapolis. 

    Here’s a link to the press release for this special recognition:

  • 10/4/2019

    Veteran official and coordinator, Brad McMillion has been named a regional advisor for the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship.

    McMillion, coordinator of officials for the Mountain East Conference since 2013, will serve as advisor in the East Region for the NCAA.  He has officiated games over the last 24 years in all three divisions, with time spent as an official in the Southern Conference, Big South Conference, Old Dominion Athletic Conference, South Atlantic Conference, West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, Colonial Athletic Conference, Conference Carolinas and Appalachian Athletic Conference.  In 2010, McMillion was selected to officiate the finals of the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship.

    Currently residing in Bluefield, Virginia, McMillion is one of four regional advisors who will work closely in 2019-20 with Penny Davis, the NCAA’s new national coordinator of women’s basketball officiating, who joined the association in July of this year.  Joining McMillion as regional advisors in 2019-20 will be Denny Mayer, Wanda Szeremeta and Alicia Walker. His duties begin on October 1, 2019.

    “I am excited to have Brad join the team,” said Davis.  “His recent on-court experience, current knowledge of officiating and enthusiasm for the game makes him a great addition to the group of regional advisors.”

    I want to share with you my enthusiasm and gratitude on being selected to be your national coordinator of women’s basketball. It’s a tremendous honor to get to follow in the path established by the leaders who came before me and to represent the NCAA. 

    The pivot from an on court official to serving in this role is bittersweet yet so exciting. I am grateful to the conferences, the coordinators and the many officials and observers I have learned from over the years. Those collective experiences have prepared me for this role and I am thrilled to be in the position to lead and learn from this new vantage point.

    In my career, I observed that officials always try to do their best, every game, every play. I never met a referee who tried to miss a call or one who wanted to do a bad job. Officials at all levels are passionate about what they do and strive for that unattainable perfect game. It’s my goal that we will all work together to raise officiating with the growth of our game so we can showcase this great game and these amazing student-athletes at all levels. 

    Our season will be beginning in less than 100 days and we need to be physically and mentally ready to go. I challenge you to elevate your preparation and that of those around you. Reach out and work with an official in your purview and give back to this game - each one reach one! 

    I look forward to seeing you at a regional clinic and on the court this season.

    Here we go!
