Carol A. Blazejowski

Known appropriately as "the Blaze," Carol Blazejowski ranks among college basketball's all-time scorers. Blazejowski still holds the single season (38.6 ppg, 1,235 pts) and career (31.7 ppg) scoring records at Montclair State University. The first-ever recipient of the Wade Trophy in 1978, Blazejowski was a three-time First Team All-America selection and was named the Converse Women's Player of the Year in 1977. In 1976, the Blaze set the Madison Square Garden single-game college scoring mark with 52 points against Queens College in a nationally-televised game. Blazejowski was a member of the 1980 United States Olympic team and played in the World University and Pan American Games. She led the United States in scoring at the World University Games in 1977 and averaged 10.2 points per game in the 1979 Pan American Games. Blazejowski then played one year of professional basketball for the New Jersey Gems of the Women's Basketball League.
