NEWARK, Del. – The Atlantic 10 Conference announced Thursday its annual Basketball Legends and current University of Delaware women’s basketball associate head coach Jeanine Radice is one of 26 former basketball student-athletes and coaches named by the league for the immeasurable impact each made on their respective institution and basketball program.

“Any time you can be recognized for your accomplishments is a great honor,” commented Radice.  “I truly enjoyed my four years at Fordham University and I am honored to be a part of the A-10 Legends.”

Radice, a former standout at Fordham University (then in the MAAC), is the second leading scorer in school history with 2,417 points while leading the Rams with 21.8 points per game and a 47.5 shot percentage from behind the arc during her four-year career.

The Staten Island, N.Y. native earned MAAC Rookie of the Year honors during the 1985-86 season while picking up Player of the Year accolades in 1989.  Radice also ranked in the top 15 in the nation in scoring multiple times during her Fordham career.

Current A-10 commissioner and former Georgia Tech head coach Bernadette McGlade once described Radice as, “one of the most outstanding perimeter shooters we’ve had the opportunity to see, especially shooting the ball on the move.”

Radice is currently in her 18th season with the Blue Hens.  Her tenure is the longest of any current assistant coach among UD men’s and women’s athletics teams and ties her for 12th amongst active NCAA Division I assistant/associate women’s basketball coaches at one institution.

The A-10 Women’s Basketball Legends will be recognized with a brunch on Friday, March 7 prior to the A-10 Championship quarterfinals.  The event will take place at the Richmond Marriott beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Each institution selected its two Legends. The group consists of former student-athletes and coaches who played or coached basketball at current A-10 member institutions.
