Felisha Legette Makes History at The University of Buffalo!

Six seasons. 119 wins. 76 losses. 5 straight winning seasons. 2 Mid-American Conference Championships. 2 NCAA appearances. 1 National Invitational Tournament appearance. A Sweet 16 appearance. Named Western New York’s top 100 most influential women. Mother to George Washington University’s student-athlete David Maceo Jack. Wife of David Jack. Former Syracuse Women’s Basketball standout.

To truly put the accomplishments of Head Coach Felisha Legette-Jack into perspective, you have to consider the state of the Women’s program before she arrived.The Bulls were 9-22 the season before Legette-Jack began coaching in Buffalo. The program had only one post-season appearance in its school history and were consistently at the bottom of the conference standings and expectations.

Coach Legette-Jack has managed to infuse her blue collar, no excuse attitude into the program and has been extremely successful with welcoming the right staff and student-athletes that fit the mold of how she approaches the game of basketball, academics and life. A major reflection of this sentiment is her teams cumulative GPA. Coach Legette-Jack Women’s team has posted 9 straight semesters of a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
