Margaret McKeon

Margaret McKeon joined Blue Star Basketball after spending the past five years at the helm of New Jersey Institute of Technology program where she helped in their transition to Division I competition. McKeon's track record includes five NCAA Division I postseason tournament appearances in her years as an assistant coach and head coach.

Prior to NJIT she spent five years as head coach at Boston University (1999-2004), McKeon transformed the Terriers from a team with five wins the season before her arrival to one that earned a spot in the NCAA Division I Tournament by her fourth season and was only a game short of repeating as America East Conference champion the following year.

Before her years as head coach at BU, McKeon was assistant and then associate head coach at George Washington from 1995 to 1999, during which time GW posted a combined record of 93-31. In her four seasons as an assistant coach at George Washington, the Colonials won three Atlantic 10 Conference championships, advancing to the NCAA Tournament all three times. GW ranked 10th nationally and reached the tournament's Elite Eight in 1996-97 and the Colonials advanced to the second round two other times, including 1995-96, when they finished 18th in the final national poll.

Earlier, at the University of Houston, she was part of a staff that recruited what one service rated as the 10th best in the nation in 1994. In her first year as a college coach, McKeon was on the staff for the 1991-92 Arizona State squad that reached the NCAAs. The Sun Devils' combined record in her two seasons there was 37-19, playing in the Pacific 10, one of the nation's elite women's basketball conferences.

McKeon is a 1991 graduate of St. John's University in Queens, NY, earning a BA in athletic administration. A collegiate star at both St. John's and at Oklahoma, she was all-Big East for St. John's, setting a conference single-game assists record that still stands, with 18 against Georgetown on January 16, 1991. She also starred at Oklahoma, earning all-conference honorable mention.

Before college, she starred at Christ the King Regional High School in Queens, a school renowned for its powerhouse girls' basketball program that has produced such talent as WNBA players Sue Bird and Chamique Holdsclaw. Between high school and college, she coached the New York Liberty Belles one of the most successful girls AAU program in the Northeast at that time. She is a member of the New York GCHSAA Hall of Fame.

A member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association since 1991, McKeon was a speaker at two WBCA national conventions. McKeon is presently the assistant athletic director and head girls basketball coach at Xaverian High School in Bay Ridge, NY
