Anya Covington is in her fourth season as an assistant women's basketball coach for the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. In her first two years on campus, Covington already made a big impact by helping the Panthers tie the program record with 22 wins in year one and following that up with 21 wins last season. Milwaukee also reached the postseason each of those seasons, winning their first ever Postseason WNIT contest this past season after advancing to the WBI semifinals two years ago.
Covington came to Milwaukee after one season at UW-Madison. Prior to coaching the Badgers, Covington spent the 2014-15 season as an assistant coach with the University of Evansville. While with the Purple Aces, Covington helped coach forward Mallory Ladd to a spot on the 2015 Missouri Valley Conference All-Tournament team to go along with honorable mention all-conference honors.
