During all but one of East Carolina’s home women’s basketball games this season, Blue Edwards has sat in the same spot inside Minges Coliseum — behind the scorer’s table, about three rows up.

He watches his daughter play on the same court that he excelled on during his college days. He doesn’t show much emotion, but that’s not because he isn’t into the games. Edwards said after last Sunday’s contest against UAB that holding in his raw emotion is part of his personality.


His twin daughters, Britny and Whitny, transferred to East Carolina last July after beginning their careers at Virginia. Britny is playing with the Pirates this season and Whitny is redshirting, which will allow the twins to play together next year.
