CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Former Clemson women's basketball coach Annie Tribble has died.

The university said Tribble died Thursday in Anderson after battling cancer. She was 80.

Tribble took over the Lady Tigers in 1976, a year after the university created a women's basketball team. She went 200-135 in 11 years with seven 20-win seasons. Tribble's teams also made the postseason seven times including the inaugural NCAA Tournament in 1982 and won the school's first Atlantic Coast Conference title in women's basketball in 1981.

Tribble came to Clemson after spending nine seasons at what was then called Anderson Junior College, going 155-33.

Clemson honored Tribble on Tuesday, giving her a key to the city and naming the women's basketball coaching offices at the school in her honor.
