Daneesha Provo’s knee injury hurt the Utah women’s basketball team, but she’s coming back

Daneesha Provo’s knee injury hurt the Utah women’s basketball team, but she’s coming back As her Utah women's basketball teammates practiced, Daneesha Provo dribbled on the sideline. She started and stopped and changed directions in drills designed to test her right knee, the body part that betrayed her just as the Utes' Pac-12 schedule was beginning in January.

Proudest Coaching Moment:
• Being named the head coach of the 2017 Canada Games Team was an accomplishment that took 12 years to bring to fruition, as it was a goal of mine since playing in the 2005 Canada Games. I am truly appreciative of having had that opportunity to coach those student-athletes.
• Two AUS Championships and a USport Bronze Medal with the Saint Mary’s University Women’s Basketball.
Fun Fact: In 2014 I travelled to Kisii, Kenya to help build a classroom and donate sports equipment/school supplies, this trip also sparked my interest in photography.
