Brian Orr is entering his 6th season as the women’s basketball coach at Lewis-Clark State College. Last year Orr was named Frontier Conference co-Coach of the Year as the team finished with a record of 26-7, while claiming a share of the conference championship. During his tenure, Orr’s teams have amassed an overall 117-49 (.705) win-loss record. On December 10, 2005, with a victory over Warner Pacific College, Orr won his 100th contest, a milestone that was achieved faster than any previous LCSC basketball coach. In his five seasons at the helm, Orr has averaged 23.4 wins per season, the best in the history of the program. His teams currently have the best home court winning percentage at the school with a remarkable 70-12 (.854) win-loss record.

In 2005-06, the Warriors were ranked 6th in the national poll for four straight weeks and became the 10th Lewis Clark State squad to qualify for the NAIA National Tournament in the last 11 years. The 26 victories were a personal best for Coach Orr, and were the third most wins in a season for the women’s program. So too was the .788 winning percentage. A reoccurring theme for Orr’s teams has been their efficiency on both ends of the court. Last year the team finished in the top 10 in the nation in several statistical categories including: 3rd in rebound margin (+8.33 rpg), 3rd in offensive rebounding (18.09 rpg), 6th in steals (13.49 spg), 7th in scoring margin (+18.64 ppg), 7th in turnover margin (+7.42), 8th in assists (17.27 apg), and 9th in scoring, averaging 78.86 points per game.
