Radford's Ngongba to lead Virgin Islands team

Radford coach and Virgin Islands native Tajama Abraham Ngongba will return home this summer to coach the Virgin Islands senior team as it prepares for the CBC Senior Women's Championships Aug. 3-7 in Nassau. Ngongba will preside over a two-week tryout camp beginning July 15 before leading her team into battle against St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and the host Bahamas.

"I am just very honored," Ngongba told the Virgin Islands Daily News.  "Because I take a lot of pride in being Crucian and it's just an amazing feeling and opportunity to represent the country in the sport I love."

The assignment should have re-united Ngongba with her own Victoria Hamilton, a rising senior at Radford who started 23 games last season. Last summer, Hamilton helped the Virgin Islands team to one of its best finishes in years. But the newspaper reported that Hamilton is rehabbing a knee injury and will likely sit out this summer's action.
