University of Hawaii basketball great Judy Mosley-McAfee died Monday in Temecula, Calif., after a three-year battle with cancer. She was 45.

Mosley-McAfee, a 6-foot-1 forward, is the only player in history to lead Hawaii in scoring and rebounding for four consecutive seasons (1987-90). The two-time All-American (1989, 1990) still holds more than two dozen school records.

"This is a sad day for the University of Hawaii ohana," said former Rainbow Wahine coach Vince Goo. "Judy Mos-ley was the most dominating basketball player - male or female - that ever played for UH."

For her career, Mosley-McAfee averaged 21.7 points and 12.6 rebounds per game, and is still UH's all-time leading scorer (2,479) and rebounder (1,441).

Mosley-McAfee played nine seasons overseas and with the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA in 1997. That same year she was inducted into the University of Hawaii Athletics' Circle of Honor.

She is survived by her husband, Marvin McAfee, and her four children. Funeral services are pending.
