Former University of Maine women’s basketball standout Cindy Blodgett was announced as a new associate head coach with the Boston University Terriers on Monday afternoon.

Blodgett was elevated from assistant to associate head coach by the program after joining the Terriers back in 2014.  The former Black Bear helped the BU side to an 11-7 record in conference play this past season, which was the highest win total for BU since joining the Patriot League 2013.

“I’m truly honored and humbled for this promotion and feel so blessed to be a part of this university, athletic department, and the women’s basketball program,” remarked Blodgett via a press release by the school on Monday. “Each day, I am thankful to have the opportunity to work for Coach Steding and to be able to interact and coach our amazing student-athletes at a place as special as Boston University.”

During her time in high school, Blodgett scored a state-record 2,596 points and helped Lawrence to four consecutive state titles in Class A.  Blodgett was a four-time All-American during her time at UMaine and was drafted sixth overall by the Cleveland Rockers back in 1998.  She ended up playing four years in the WNBA, including the 2000 season in Sacramento with BU head coach Katy Steding.  During her collegiate career she compiled 3,005 points, which was good for the 10th best mark in NCAA women’s basketball history.

After her playing career she coached with Boston University during the 1999-2000 season, as well as Brown University as an assistant from 2005 until 2007.  She then was hired to become the UMaine head coach for the next four seasons before being relieved of her duties in the spring of 2011.  Blodgett was an assistant coach with Rhode Island from 2011-14 before joining BU in the same role the following year.

Boston University was a member of the America East conference from 1979-2013 when they left for the Patriot League.  Maine last played BU during the 2012-13 season.
