CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Missouri Valley Conference named UNI's Tanya Warren as the conference coach of the year on Thursday. Warren's earned the distinction three times in her career.

The honor comes as UNI prepares to open MVC tournament play against Bradley on Friday. The Panthers earned the top seed after finishing 15-3 in league play and 20-9 overall. Warren's now directed the team to 17 or more wins in seven consecutive seasons.

The Panthers rolled to the conference regular season in part due to a stifling defense. UNI led the conference in scoring defense during the 20-15-16 season.

Tanya Warren ranks 10th all-time in the Missouri Valley Conference with 158 career wins.
