DeAnna Rayam will be entering her second season as assistant women’s basketball coach at Moravian College in 2017-18.
In 2016, Rayam was inducted into the Lehigh Valley Basketball Hall of Fame.
Rayam coached at East Stroudsburg University for three seasons (2012–2015). She helped the Warriors reach the PSAC Tournament in each of her three seasons while she was there. During Rayam's first two years as an assistant coach, ESU has reached the PSAC Tournament both seasons. The Warriors advanced to the PSAC quarterfinals in 2014, the program's first quarterfinal trip since she was a sophomore in 2008.
Rayam, a 2010 graduate of ESU and an All-PSAC East second team selection as a senior, scored 1,046 career points as a four-year letter winner and three-year starter for the Warriors. She was a significant contributor as a freshman on the 2007 team that went 25-4 and won the PSAC East regular season title. Rayam played in 97 games in her career at ESU, overcoming an injury that cut her freshman season short after 16 games. As a senior, she averaged 14.3 points and was the first player to lead ESU in scoring, rebounds and assists since 1991.
Rayam is a Health and Physical Education Teacher in New Jersey.
