WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Mount St. Mary’s will retire the number of former player and coach Vanessa Blair (1992) on Saturday, Jan. 26.

Blair’s No. 24 will be retired at halftime of the Mount St. Mary’s men’s game against St. Francis Brooklyn.

She will be the second member of the Mount St. Mary’s women’s basketball program to have her number retired.

Blair was a member of the Mount’s first Division I class, helping lead the Mountaineers to an 80-30 record and a pair of NEC championship game appearances. Blair ended her career as the program’s all-time leader in blocks (242) and double-doubles (39). She also ranks third in career rebounds (849), fourth in free throws (370), seventh in steals (241), eighth in points (1,488) and field-goal percentage (.496), and ninth in games started (95) and field goals (559). In addition, Blair holds the program record for most blocks in a season (77) and a game (eight).

Blair served as an assistant coach at Mount St. Mary’s from 1996-98 before taking over as head coach in 1998. She was named NEC Coach of the Year in her inaugural season at the helm, and she remains the only person in league history to be named both NEC Player and Coach of the Year.

Blair is in her 11th season as the head coach at Bethune-Cookman, where she’s compiled 158 wins and led the team to three straight MEAC regular-season championships.
