Misty Opat cuts down the net after Rock Valley College Women's Basketball's national championship game in 2012. Misty Opat, RVC Head Women's Basketball Coach and Athletic Director, has been invited to instruct at the College of DuPage and East Bay Fall Coaches Clinic on Saturday, September 13.

The inaugural clinic will host some top basketball coaches from the collegiate and high school levels. In addition to Opat, some of the other instructors at the clinic will include Seth Greenberg, former Head Men's Basketball Coach at Virginia Tech, South Florida, and Long Beach State, and a college basketball analyst at ESPN since 2012; Brian Wardle, Men's Basketball Coach at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay; and Doug Bruno, Head Women's Basketball Coach at DePaul University.

"It's a tremendous honor to be invited to participate in this event along with so many distinguished coaches from the world of college basketball," said Opat.

Opat will instruct on "Special Situation Plays" at the clinic. In her five seasons at RVC, she has compiled an overall record of 124-40 and a stellar 55-8 mark in conference play with only one conference loss in the past four seasons. Her team finished in second place at the NJCAA tournament in 2014 after winning the national championship in the previous two seasons (2012 & 2013).
