The UB’s women’s basketball team has a new leader.
Felisha Legette-Jack has been named the twelfth head coach in school history to lead the team next season. Most recently, Legette-Jack spent her time at Indiana University for six seasons as the head coach.
With successful coaching careers at some top schools, Jegette-Jack defintely has the record and the experience to lead UB to a winning season.
A 1989 Syracuse graduate with a double major in child and family studies and psychology, Legette-Jack scored 1,526 points and grabbed 927 rebounds. Legette-Jack is the second-leading scorer and all-time leading rebounder in Syracuse history. She won 1985 Big East Rookie of the Year honors and earned all-league laurels three times in her career.
An inductee into the Greater Syracuse Hall of Fame, the Syracuse Urban League Hall of Fame and the Syracuse University Orange Plus Hall of Fame, Legette-Jack was one of 15 players named to the Big East Conference Silver Anniversary Team in 2004.
