Graduate Assistant Manager

Morgan Henderson is entering her second season with the women's basketball program as a graduate assistant coach for head coach Cindy Fisher.

"Morgan's energy, sense of humor and intense competitiveness and drive made her an incredible player for our program and now it can be used in a coaching and mentoring role."
Head Coach Cindy Fisher.

In 2014-15, Henderson helped lead USD to an unprecedented fourth consecutive 20-win season, as the Toreros posted a 25-7 overall record, finished second in the WCC at 14-4 and USD made its fourth consecutive trip to the WNIT. This was the highest winning percentage in program history.

Henderson joins USD after a 4-year professional basketball career in Germany. She was teamed up with former Torero standouts Amanda Rego and Amber Sprague on the Donau-Ries team the last four seasons. During her professional career, Henderson became the first player in the team's history to score 1,000 or more career points. She also served as the team's captain in her final season, and helped lead her team to both a second place and third place finish in the German Cup.

In her first season with the program, Henderson helped lead USD to an unprecedented fourth consecutive 20-win season, as USD posted a 25-7 overall record, finished second in the WCC at 14-4 and USD made its fourth consecutive trip to the WNIT. USD managed to secure a pair of home postseason games, defeating Long Beach State in the first round, before losing to eventual WNIT champions UCLA in round two. Under her tutelage, the senior class was able to graduate with an overall four-year mark of 97-25.

Henderson did manage to gain coaching experience while in Germany, as she coached several youth camps, as well as in a youth league. She also helped out with a program called Big Sister Little Sister, which helped teach the game of basketball to the youth.

Henderson, a 2010 graduate of USD, was one of the most memorable Toreros in program history, as she was not only a talented basketball player, but her signature headband and knee pads will for ever go down in USD history as one of the best looks. As a freshman, she took home All-WCC freshman team honors after she helped lead USD to the biggest turnaround in program history, a 12-game improvement from the previous season. She also was a member of the first-20 win Torero team in her freshman campaign. In her sophomore year, she again was a huge lift for the Toreros, as she helped lead USD to the championship of the WCC Tournament, with a game-high 20 points, while going 6-for-8 from beyond the arc against Gonzaga in the title game. She finished her career as second all-time in 3-pointers made with 157, and she holds the record for career free-throw shooting percentage at 87.0%.
