Guest: Megan Griffith, Columbia Head Coach

Columbia head coach Megan Griffith joins the Basketball Podcast to share insights on developing people, creating culture, and building community.

Griffith has ushered in a new era of Columbia women's basketball. Her six-year tenure as head coach has combined to be the winningest six-year stretch in the NCAA Division I history of the program. Over that time, the Lions have earned seven power-conference wins, including their first victories over opponents from the ACC and Big East. Columbia has also qualified for the Ivy League Tournament in each of its last two seasons, playing in the championship game in 2021-22 before accepting the program's first bid to the Women's National Invitational Tournament (WNIT).

The 2021-22 season was a landmark year as the team had its winningest season in program history, going 25-7 overall with a 12-2 Ivy League record.
