Usc-logo_200 Jean Agee, an assistant coach on USC's 1983 and 1984 NCAA championship women's basketball teams, died July 8 in Brea, the school announced Monday. She was 74. 

USC did not have any information about the cause of death, a spokeswoman said. 

Agee was an assistant coach for seven seasons with the Women of Troy, from 1978 to '84, and helped coach such greats as Cheryl Miller, Cynthia Cooper and Pam and Paula McGee. During that time the team posted a 163-53 record and never finished worse than fourth in conference play. 

Agee is survived by a daughter, Jeanine; three grandchildren, Tyler, Allison and Sam; a great grandson, Boston; and two neices. 

USC said a "celebration of life" reception in Agee's memory would be held Aug. 8 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Brea Glenbrook Club. Agee will be cremated and buried at sea, the school said.
