Tammay Anair Anderson, 1988- Tammy Anair Anderson is remembered as one of the most adept shooters to grace USM’s basketball court. A four-year starter under Coach Richard Costello, she still holds a pair of free throw shooting records for the Huskies. Her .880 mark in 1983-84 has never been topped and her .830 percentage over 113 career games is still USM’s best. “She was the most dedicated athlete I ever saw,” Costello says of his former guard who hit 25 consecutive free throws during the 1984 season. “I’d get to work at 7:30 a.m. and she’d be there practicing, and she wouldn’t leave until she made 25 straight foul shots. She was like a bulldog that way. She just stayed with whatever she had to do. Anderson earned a slow of honors during her USM career including MAIAW, ECAC and NEWBA all-star status. Anderson was the winner of the Dorothea J. Vlahakos Memorial Scholarship in 1985 and the Maine State Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete Scholarship in 1987. The mother of two is currently a sixth grade teacher at Greene Central School. She reigns as the third-leading scorer in USM women’s basketball history with 1,409 career points.
