Niecee Nelson era underway for Mastodons

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Fort Wayne’s women’s basketball program is under new leadership for the 2016-17 season as new head coach Niecee Nelson takes over the Mastodons.

The Dons hit the practice floor for the first time on Sunday and practiced again on Monday.

Nelson is in her first year leading the program after Chris Paul’s contract was not renewed. Fort Wayne won just seven games last season and nine the year before.

Fort Wayne open the season with an exhibition game at the Gates Center November 6 against Indiana Tech.
