Gillom Enshrined in Women's Basketball Hall of Fame

Gillom Becomes Third Rebel Inductee

Peggie Gillom-Granderson, Ole Miss' all-time leading scorer and rebounder in women's basketball, returned to her alma mater on March 18, 2003 as the women's basketball associate head coach. Gillom-Granderson, whose responsibilities include scheduling, scouting and recruiting, previously spent 16 seasons as an assistant coach on Van Chancellor's Lady Rebel coaching staff from 1981-1997, and most recently was the head coach at Texas A&M University.

Gillom-Granderson and the Ole Miss staff wasted little time in getting the Lady Rebel team back to the NCAA Tournament, a fete she accomplished many times in her days as an Ole Miss assistant. Gillom-Granderson, who works with the Lady Rebel post players, has been instrumental in guiding Ole Miss back to some of the glory days she encountered during her Lady Rebel career.

As a four-year starting forward for the Lady Rebels from 1976-80, Gillom-Granderson scored 2,486 points and grabbed 1,271 rebounds, establishing school records in both categories which still stand today. She is the only Lady Rebel to ever score more than 2,000 points and grab more than 1,000 rebounds in her career. In her senior season, she earned Southeastern Conference All-Tournament Team honors and was a finalist for the Wade Trophy. Gillom-Granderson also holds eight other Lady Rebel game, season and career records.

Drafted by the Dallas Diamonds of the Women's Professional Basketball League after the 1979-80 Lady Rebel season, Gillom-Granderson played one year of professional ball. She then entered the coaching ranks at Ole Miss on Chancellor's staff. She helped lead the Lady Rebels to 14 NCAA Tournaments, including five Sweet 16 and four Elite Eight appearances.

A native of Abbeville, Miss., Gillom-Granderson played two seasons (1978-79 and 1979-80) on teams coached by Chancellor, and while an assistant at Ole Miss, she coached her sister, Jennifer, who played for the Lady Rebels from 1982-86. As a Lady Rebel, Jennifer scored 2,186 points, ranking second to Peggie on the all-time scoring list. The two sisters are the only Lady Rebels to ever score more than 2,000 points in a career. Jennifer was a member of the 1988 United States Olympic Team that captured the gold medal.

After coaching for 16 years at Ole Miss, Gillom-Granderson moved to the WNBA, where she served as an assistant coach with Chancellor for the 1997 season and part of the 1998 season with the Houston Comets. The Comets won WNBA Championships both seasons. In June of 1998, Gillom-Granderson was hired as the head coach at Texas A&M University, where she compiled a record of 53-86 over five seasons. While at Texas A&M, Gillom-Granderson served as an assistant coach for the 2000 USA Basketball Olympic Team in Sydney, Australia, helping guide the team to a gold medal.

Gillom-Granderson earned her bachelor's degree in Social Work from Ole Miss in 1980. In 1996, she was inducted into the Ole Miss Athletic Hall of Fame, and is a 1997 inductee of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame. In the spring of 2000, Ole Miss named the soccer, softball and volleyball complex after the Gillom-Granderson sisters and is now called the Gillom Sports Center.

Gillom-Granderson was married on July 2, 2005 to Anthony Granderson. The couple resides in Abbeville.
