TOWSON, Md. – The all-time leading scorer in program history, Shanae Baker-Brice returns to the Towson University women’s basketball team as the director of basketball operations, it has been announced by head coach Niki Reid Geckeler.

“I’m very excited that one of our outstanding student-athletes and a daughter of Towson University is returning home to join our staff,” said Reid Geckeler. “Shanae was a fierce competitor on the court and that competitive fire still burns in her. Shanae’s passion for Tiger Athletics will truly make her an asset to the Towson community and our young women.”

A four-year standout, Baker-Brice competed in 121 games for the Tigers from 2006-10. She led Towson to 71 victories during that stretch, including 37 in Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play. As a senior, Baker-Brice broke Danielle Barry’s (1,555) career scoring mark and finished her career with 1,806 points scored. She holds the school record for career field goals made (635) and career free throws made (442). She ranks second in career steals (295) and third in career assists (467). Baker-Brice is a four-time All-CAA honoree who earned first team accolades as both a junior and a senior. She was also named to the CAA All-Defensive team as a junior.

After graduation Baker-Brice played professionally in Edremit, Turkey as well as for Njardvik in Iceland.
