Ex-CCU star, ESPN analyst Weisbrod makes BSC Hall

ccu-brookeweisbrodFormer Coastal Carolina University three-sport standout and current ESPN analyst Brooke Weisbrod will be inducted into the Big South Conference Hall of Fame, it was announced Tuesday as the league released its 2017 class.

Weisbrod, who was best known for her play as a women’s basketball player but also played softball and tennis at CCU from 1997-2001, is one of four former conference athletes and administrators to be inducted this year. She becomes the 21st Chanticleer to enter the Big South Hall of Fame, the most among all current or former member institutions.

The class of 2017 will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame on Thursday, June 1, 2017, during a special ceremony as part of the Big South’s annual spring meetings at the Marriott Resort in Hilton Head Island.

Weisbrod led Coastal Carolina to two of its three all-time Big South Women’s Basketball Championship game appearances in 1999 and 2000, and capped her career as the 2000-01 Big South Women’s Basketball Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year.  A two-time All-Conference selection (1999, 2001), Weisbrod was the 1997-98 Women’s Basketball Rookie of the Year and earned Freshman of the Week honors four times that season.

In 2000-01, she was the league’s leader in scoring (531 points), points per game (19.7), field goals (188), field goals per game (6.96), steals (95) and steals per game (3.52).  She finished her career 14th on the Big South’s all-time scoring list with 1,401 points, fifth on the league’s all-time steals list with 281 and fifth on the conference’s all-time 3-point field goal chart with 151.

Weisbrod is one of three players in Coastal Carolina basketball history with 1,000 points, 400 rebounds (432), 200 assists (286) and 200 steals, and remains the school’s all-time leader in steals while ranking sixth in field goals (512), seventh in points (1401) and eighth in assists (286).

Voted to the Big South Women’s Basketball 2000-09 All-Decade Team, Weisbrod was a three-time member of the Big South Women’s Basketball All-Academic Team during her four years.  In addition, she played on Coastal’s 1998 Big South Softball Championship squad as a freshman, as she recorded a .256 batting average and four home runs in 40 games at DH/RF.

Weisbrod also played on Coastal’s Women’s Tennis team during her junior year of 1999-00.  Named the NCAA Woman of the Year for South Carolina in 2001, Weisbrod is currently a college basketball analyst for ESPN.  She was inducted into the Coastal Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame in 2007.

Also included in the class of 2017 are former Charleston Southern football player Collin Drafts, former Radford volleyball and women’s basketball player Anne Fontaine and former Winthrop Director of Athletics Tom Hickman.
