Senior guard Brittni Oliver (Kokomo, Ind.) also served as host of the program.
Gunn, a 4-11 native of Nashville, Tenn., has accounted for one of the greatest basketball playing careers in Division II history.

Last year’s squad posted the best postseason run in school history, by winning the program’s first SAC Tournament title and parlayed that momentum in knocking off the top three seeds in the NCAA Regional to advance to the Division II Elite Eight in Missouri.
This year’s squad is 16-6 overall, 12-2 in the league and is riding a 10-game winning streak, The Pioneers have a three-game lead in the South Atlantic Conference with four games remaining. Gunn leads the Pioneers averaging 19.7 points per game, which is tops in the conference.
