Ben Law is in his second year with the Lady Tiger basketball squad -- his first as an assistant coach.
Law was elevated to an assistant coach upon the departure of Brenda Welch-Nichols this past summer. He served the previous year as the director of basketball operations. Law will move from administrative duties to on-court coaching duties which also include scouting, scheduling and film exchange. In addition, he will work closely with the Joye Lee-McNelis Basketball Camp and will assist with various community service projects.
A native of Dallas, Texas, Law joined the Lady Tiger staff after one year with the newly established Miami Sol of the WNBA. While with the Sol, he served as an administrative assistant and was responsible for maintaining the player database, coordinating all scouting trips, coordinating free agent camps and assisting with team travel.
Prior to joining the Miami Sol, Law worked just over a year as an intern with the Miami Heat. While with the Heat, Law was instrumental in preparing statistical research for the college draft and play-offs as well as assisting with the free agent camps. Law also helped in the video department with statistical charts.
A graduate of Baylor University, Law received his bachelor's degree in education in 1997, and his master's degree in sports management in 1999.
While pursuing his education at Baylor, Law served as a graduate teaching assistant for almost a year before accepting a position as a graduate assistant in the recreation department. While working in the recreation department, he gained valuable experience in managing facilities and schedule maintainance.
During the 1996-97 school year, Law served as a volunteer assistant varsity coach at Mart High School, and he also has worked at several camps, including the Miami Heat Summer Camp.
