Jan. 8, 2003
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State University's Department of Athletics will honor former women's basketball standout Felicia Ragland on Saturday night with a ceremony to retire her jersey.
The ceremony will take place prior to Oregon State's women's basketball game against University of California at 7 p.m.
Ragland, a native of Tulare, Calif., was a two-time honorable mention Associated Press and two-time Kodak District 8 All-American while playing at Oregon State from 1999-2002. She was a three-time Pacific-10 Conference first team pick and was the 2001 Pac-10 Player of the Year. As a senior, Ragland led the Beavers in scoring (19.9 ppg.), rebounding (6.6 rpg.), steals (2.5 spg.), and 3-point field goals (69). Ragland is one of just three Oregon State players to score 1,600 points (1,803) and pull down 600 rebounds (739) in her career. She finished her four seasons at OSU ranked in the school's top-10 in 14 different career statistical categories. Ragland holds the Oregon State record for 3-point field goals made with 178.
Ragland became the first Oregon State women's basketball player drafted by the WNBA when she was selected as the 28th pick overall by the Seattle Storm in 2002.
A dessert social will take place following the game.
