JENNIFER GAETA '94|
A native of Binghamton, N.Y., Jennifer Gaeta played basketball at Binghamton from 1992-94. She earned her bachelor's degree in biology in 1994, and received her master's degree in social science in 2000.
After transferring to BU from Division I Iona, Gaeta produced two of the most dominating seasons of any player in program history. In 1992-93 and 1993-94, the 5-foot-9 forward earned honorable mention All-America honors and University "Athlete of the Year" honors.
As a junior, Gaeta averaged a "double-double" with 15.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. Her inside play resulted in a BU-best 22-6 record, and she was also named first team All-SUNYAC and All-ECAC.
One year later as team captain, Gaeta averaged 19.0 points with 12.9 rebounds per game - both school records at the time - and was selected both first team All-SUNYAC and first team All-ECAC. Her rebound average ranked Gaeta among the nation's top-20.
In just two seasons, she moved into third place in career scoring with 917 points, and graduated in fourth place in career rebounding with 637. Her two season rebound totals of 322 and 315 remain the highest in program history, as does her career average of 12.0 boards per game.
Gaeta holds or shares seven school records, including points (38), rebounds (23) and field goals (16) in a single game. Her 17.3 scoring average ranks third after 26 years of basketball at the University. During her tenure, BU averaged 18 wins, and advanced to the ECAC Championship game in 1993.
