Vanderbilt women's basketball coach Melanie Balcomb is renowned as one of the best offensive minds in the nation.

And on Saturday, she'll share some of her insight.

Balcomb -- who will be speaking on "The Finer Points of Offense" -- is the all-time wins leader in the history of the Vanderbilt's women's program and has led the Commodores to 12 straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Balcomb is one of only five coaches to have led their teams to the NCAA Tournament in each of the past 12 seasons. The others are: Geno Auriemma (Connecticut), Tara VanDerveer (Stanford), Joanne P. McCallie (Mich. State/Duke), Muffet McGraw (Notre Dame) and Andy Landers (Georgia).

Balcomb has collected 440 career wins, which ranks third in the SEC behind only Texas A&M's Gary Blair and Georgia's Andy Landers (925). Coming into the 2013-14 season, Balcomb ranked 36th among active coaches in victories and 43rd among active coaches in winning percentage.
