There has been a Mabrey on campus for eight consecutive years and, as the ninth year commences, Notre Dame is adding one more. This past week, Dara Mabrey officially became Irish, transferring from Virginia Tech into the Notre Dame women’s basketball program.
Dara joins sister Michaela, a current assistant coach and program alum, and will become the third Mabrey to play for the Irish. Sister Marina cemented her place in Irish history after helping lead Notre Dame to a 2018 national championship and becoming the program’s all-time three-point leader. She currently plays for the Dallas Wings.
“I am thrilled to welcome Dara Mabrey to our team,” Karen & Kevin Keyes Family Notre Dame Head Coach Niele Ivey stated. “We have an incredible history of success with the Mabrey family and I am looking forward to continuing that track record with Dara. Between her three-point shooting capability, competitive drive, and ACC experience, I think she will be a great addition to the new era of Irish basketball.”
Dara, a 5-7 guard from Belmar, New Jersey, leaves Virginia Tech after two seasons in which she started in all 64 games played. Mabrey tallied 738 total points (11.5 ppg) and already ranked seventh all-time in made three-pointers with 155.
