Dec 15, 2021

Venus Lacy (some sources give her name as Venus Lacey, born February 9, 1967) is an American former star basketball player, at the high school, college, Olympic and professional levels. A wide-bodied, muscular 6-foot-4-inch (1.93 m)center, at her best Lacy was an intimidating force inside the paint, both scoring and rebounding. Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, she won championships at every level, but her American professional career was diminished by injuries she sustained in a 1997 car accident.[1]

. . . Venus Lacy . . .

A local sports heroine (a city parkway is named after her), Lacy led Chattanooga’s Brainerd High School to the state championship in 1984.

Venus Lacy attended Louisiana Tech University, which she led to the NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship in 1988. The next year, the Lady Techsters made the 1989 Final Four, but lost there to Auburn. In her Senior year, 1990, Louisiana Tech went undefeated through the regular season, and was ranked #1 in the national polls. That year Lacy was a consensus all-American, and was named the WBCA Player of the Year. The 1990 team again made the Final Four, where they were once again upset by their nemesis Auburn. Lacy finished her NCAA career with 266 points scored in the tournament, putting her among the all-time top 10 women at the time. Lacy was inducted into the Louisiana Tech University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011.
