Basketball star Nikki Blue shares her influencers heading to Hall of Fame

Basketball star Nikki Blue has made the big shots in front of big crowds, but she’s getting a little bit nervous about her upcoming induction into the Bob Elias Kern County Sports Hall of Fame.

“I’ve played in front of 15,000 people but I’m getting nervous about the Hall of Fame,” Blue told Greg Kerr on his daily radio show on ESPN Bakersfield 1230 AM/98.1 FM. “I don’t know why I’m getting a little bit jittery, but the hype is coming in, and everyone keeps on asking about it.”

Blue was a standout player for West High, UCLA and later for five seasons with the WNBA. She is currently an assistant coach on Cal State Bakersfield women’s basketball team.

She joins a Hall of Fame class that includes former basketball coach Mark Hutson, CSUB wrestling star Joe Gonzalez and Garces and USC volleyball standout Katie Haller-Metcalf.

During the interview, Kerr asked Blue about the three big influences on her life.

“That’s a good one. I would have to say No. 1 would be my mom, who has been my biggest influence in my life. Period,” Blue said. “She introduced me to (basketball). She’s always been my No. 1 fan. “
