Melba Chambers returned to Georgetown in the spring of 2014 after an outstanding playing career on the Hilltop. She spent over 10 years in the coaching ranks including the previous two seasons with Adair at the College of Charleston. Chambers works primarily with the guards.
During the 2013-14 season, in College of Charleston's first season in the Colonial Athletic Association, the team had a record of 19-15, marking the third-highest win total in the school's Division I era. Additionally, the squad finished third in conference play, defeated five postseason teams from the previous year and advanced to the semifinals of both the CAA Championship and the Women's Basketball Invitational (WBI).
In her first year, Chambers helped the Cougars win 16 games and the team advanced to the quarterfinals of the WBI.
Chambers served as assistant coach/recruiting coordinator for the Bowie State Bulldogs in Bowie, Md. In that role she was also responsible for the development of the guards.
She also spent five seasons as head junior varsity coach and varsity assistant coach at her alma mater, St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Md. She helped take the Lady Panthers to the IAAM Championship that they won four out of her five seasons.
In her time at Georgetown, Chambers was a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Week honoree and she earned MVP for the 1998-99 season. In her final season, the Hoyas advanced to the WNIT for the first time in program history. She ranks among the all-time leaders in points (973), 3-pointers (62), assists (188), blocks (30) and rebounds (365).
After graduating from Georgetown, Chambers continued her playing career as a professional in Germany for one year.
