Ex-WNBA player Blodgett named Maine head coach

ORONO, Maine -- Former Maine star Cindy Blodgett returned to
the school Wednesday, taking over the women's basketball program.

scoring, spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach at Brown

Blodgett, who played in the WNBA from 1998-2002, is a native of
Clinton, and led Lawrence High School to four straight Class A

Blodgett was one of four finalists for the Maine position, which
was left open following Ann McInerny's resignation last month.
