THIS IS EPISODE 265 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Blair Schaefer is a college basketball analyst for the SEC Network. She played her college basketball at Mississippi State, where she was part of a team that made back-to-back appearances in the women’s NCAA national championship.
She was named to the SEC All-Defensive Team and was the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2017-18. A standout guard for Starkville High School, Schaefer was rated as one of Mississippi’s top players after coming to the Magnolia State from Texas following her sophomore season. She earned all-state honors her junior and senior seasons after moving from A&M Consolidated High School in College Station.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Schaefer about playing in back-to-back national title games, the differences in preparation for each game, beating Connecticut and ending its 111-game winning streak, how her faith in Christ was enhanced after her brother suffered a head injury, and what it was like to have her dad, Vic, as her coach in college.
