Buchanan is entering her second season as assistant coach for the Ladyjacks' basketball team.
Buchanan helped guide the Ladyjacks to the Southland Conference Tournament Championship and a 23-win season in 2011-12. The increase in 11 wins from the 2010-11 season (12) to 2011-12 (23) was tied for the sixth-biggest turnaround in the nation.
After receiving her bachelor's degree Texas A&M, Buchanan remained in the College Station area to pursue a master's degree while serving as a teacher and coach at A&M Consolidated Middle School. Each of the past four summers she has also served as a women's basketball camp coach at Texas A&M.
During her playing days, Buchanan helped guide the Aggies to three Big XII titles and four top-25 finishes, including top-10 finishes in each of her final three seasons. Buchanan was named team captain during her senior seasons, and was a two-time first-team All-Big XII selection.
