    Jamila Ganter is in her third season as assistant coach with the Ladyjacks. She joined the staff prior to the 2013-14 season and helped guide SFA to its 16th and 17th Southland Conference regular season championships in her first two seasons on staff while also leading the squad to two postseason berths.

    In 2014-15, Ganter helped the Ladyjacks post a 23-8 overall record, including a 16-2 mark in SLC play en route to a league-leading 17th conference title. Both overall and conference records were the best for the program since the 2001-02 season. 

    The Ladyjacks ended the regular season on an 11-game winning streak and clinched a spot in the WNIT. 

    Known for being an outstanding guard coach, Coach G has helped develop junior Taylor Ross into one of the premier guards in the Southland Conference over the last two years. At the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, Ross was named Second Team All-SLC after averaging 13.1 points and 4.6 assists per game during league play.

    Also working closely with Tierany Henderson over the last two seasons, Ganter helped mold the three-point sharpshooter into one of the greatest in SFA history. Henderson ended her career ranked second all-time at SFA with 215 made threes and also made it into the 1,000-point club with 1,002 career points.

    In her two seasons at SFA, Ganter has helped the Ladyjacks compile a 46-21 record (29-7 SLC) with two SLC Championships and two postseason appearances. 

    From 2009-13, Ganter served as the assistant to the head coach for the varsity girls basketball team at Liberty-Eylau Independent School District. Over her four years, the Lady Leopards won four district titles, appeared in four regional tournaments and advanced to the 2010 3A State Championship game where her team won the title. During the 2013 season Liberty-Eylau went 17-4 en route to winning the 3A Region II District 15 title.

    Prior to the high school ranks, Ganter was a student assistant coach and intern for the Texas A&M Aggies from 2007-08. While there Ganter was part of a Sweet 16 and Elite 8 appearance, as well as Big 12 Conference regular season (2007) and tournament championships (2008).

    Ganter played at Texas A&M from 2003-2006, appearing in 79 career games. She scored 141 points in her career while making 52-of-73 free throws. Ganter graduated from Texas A&M in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree.
