Even after years of hard work, Devon Greene still could not believe he made it to graduation day. Clad in cap and gown on Friday, the 28-year-old from the south Bronx received his communications degree from Manhattan College.

“I am still in disbelief,” he said. “Not because I suffer from impostor syndrome or feel unworthy, but because people coming from incarceration aren’t supposed to go on to obtain bachelor’s degrees.”

Greene has excelled beyond many of his peers who have gone through the criminal justice system.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — University of Michigan women’s basketball head coach Kim Barnes Arico announced the addition of Toyelle Wilson as the recruiting coordinator/assistant coach on Monday (May 20). Wilson spent the last six seasons as an assistant coach at Baylor and was the head coach at Prairie View A&M for three years.

Prior to joining the Baylor staff, she led Prairie View A&M to three straight SWAC Tournament championships and NCAA Tournament appearances. She compiled a 55-43 record in her three seasons as the program’s head coach. Prior to accepting the head coach position, Wilson was the Panthers’ top assistant for four years, and spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Robert Morris University.

Wilson was one of 30 coaches across the nation that participated in the Center for Coaching Excellence (CCE) by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).
