Cluesman to be inducted into Concord Hall of Fame

From staff reports • Jun 27, 2019 at 4:15 AM

Virginia-Wise women’s basketball coach Jamie Cluesman has been selected for induction into the Concord University Hall of Fame.

A standout student-athlete for the Mountain Lions, Cluesman was a key member of two 20-win seasons for the women's basketball program.

The former guard out of Lee High School twice was named to the All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference second team and made the All-WVIAC all-tournament team in 2006-07.

Cluesman holds two Concord records to date with 655 assists — the only player in program history with more than 500 assists — and is first in steals with 277. She also ranks fifth in career blocks with 64 and 10th in career rebounds with 536.

Cluesman is the only player in Concord history with 900 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists.

The coach is entering her second season at Virginia-Wise. A year ago, she guided the Cavaliers to a sixth-place finish and a bye in the Mountain East Conference tournament after the program missed the tournament in 2017-18 and was picked to finish last in a preseason poll.

Cluesman will officially be inducted into the Concord Hall of Fame on Oct. 19 in a ceremony at the Athens, West Virginia, campus.
