Coached by her dad in her hometown of Orange, California, Blasberg quickly emerged as a star on the Arizona team, winning six tournaments in two years and becoming a two-time All-American. In 2003, she finished the season No. 1 in the rankings and was named NCAA Freshman of the Year, Pacific-10 Player of the Year and Golfweek's Player of the Year.
But teammate Ianello, now the assistant golf coach at Arizona, said Blasberg didn't gloat about her success. Off the course, she was one of the girls.
"She loved to go shopping, she always had makeup on," Ianello said. "She loved eating out with friends. She was very social, always was up for a good time."
