Hargis Videos

Career: Rachel Hargis finished her career as Colorado's all-time leader in games played, appearing in 134 contests (out of a possible 135). Her only missed game was the 2013 NCAA Tournament first round matchup against Kansas (knee injury). She passed the previous record of 132, held by Erin Scholz, 1993-94, with a start in the 2014 Postseason WNIT win over Southern Utah. A four-year defensive presence for the Buffaloes, Hargis is eighth in career blocked-shots with 105. She was the first signee of the Linda Lappe coaching era (April 2010), and played with the Buffs as a member of both the Big 12 and Pac-12 Conferences.

2013-14 (Senior): Hargis appeared in all 34 games, one of only two Buffs to achieve that feat in 2013-14 (Jamee Swan), starting 19 contests. She averaged 3.5 points and 2.6 rebounds per game while finishing third on the team in blocked shots with 21. Hargis scored in double-digits three times, matching her personal-best of 12 on two occasions. She first scored 12 points while adding seven rebounds and two blocked shots in the win over Illinois (12/7). Her second 12-point effort proved to be one of her best games of the season. In her final appearance at the Coors Events Center, Hargis had 12 points, on 5-of-6 from the field, with a career-best four steals, helping Colorado defeat Southern Utah in the second round of the Postseason WNIT (3/22). She averaged 5.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals over five postseason contests.

2012-13 (Junior): Hargis’ year-to-year improvement began to turn heads in the Pac-12 as she earned honorable mention to the league’s all-defensive team. She led Colorado and ranked 10th in the Pac-12 in blocked shots at 1.1 per game (34 total). Hargis moved up one rung of the ladder during league play, ranking ninth in that same category during conference games (18, 1.0 bpg). She came up big in Colorado’s 70-66 upset win over No. 8/8 ranked Louisville (12/14) recording a career- and team-season high seven blocks, just one off the school single-game record of eight. In addition she pitched in seven points and three rebounds against the eventual national runner-up. While her blocking exploits came as expected, what may have been more impressive is Hargis’ all-around game picked up as a junior. She had a career high 26 steals – nearly equaling her total from her first two seasons combined – and 30 assists.  Hargis picked up 15 of her steals during CU’s late season 10-game win streak (1.5 spg). One of the most complete games of her career came at home against Oregon (2/10) where she scored a season-best 10 points on 4-of-7 from the field while recording four rebounds, three assists, a career-best three steals and two blocks. On the season she averaged 4.3 points per game while hitting 42 percent from the field, both improvements from her first two seasons. Hargis started the first 31 games of the season – the only Buffalo to do so – but missed the NCAA Tournament game against Kansas (3/23) with a knee injury.

2011-12 (Sophomore): Hargis saw her scoring and rebounding numbers rise slightly in her second year, averaging 3.7 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. She played in all 35 games and started the first 17 before Colorado switched to a smaller, quicker lineup during league play. Hargis had a career night against Texas-Pan American (12/20) at the UTSA Holiday Classic. Playing in her home state, she recorded her first career double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes against UTPA. She had one other double-digit scoring game, netting 10 in the home loss to California (1/12). Fifteen of her season's 26 blocked shots came during Pac-12 play, ranking 14th in the league in conference only contests. She had nine games with five or more rebounds, including seven in the WNIT win over South Dakota (3/19). Her first collegiate start came in the season opener against Northern Arizona (11/11) where she pitched in a then-personal best nine points on 4-of-7 from the field. She played a career-best 33 minutes in the Omni Classic championship game win over Wisconsin finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, two steals and two assists.

2010-11 (Freshman): Hargis played in all 34 games averaging 2.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.7 blocks per game. Hargis, who played double-digit minutes in 30 of her 34 games, became a solid player off the bench, especially on the defensive end. She ranked second on the team in blocked shots with 24, which was also the third best total among freshmen in the Big 12. She stepped it up in that category during league play as 16 of those 24 blocks came during the conference schedule ranking 11th on the overall league charts. Hargis was a sub .500 free-throw shooter on the season (.489), but she made 14 of her last 18 attempts (.778). Hargis ranked fourth on the team with 17 steals. She had a career night against Nebraska netting personal bests with six points and eight rebounds in 26 minutes. Hargis had seven games with five or more rebounds. She recorded a career and team-season high four blocked shots at No. 20/23 Iowa State (2/19).

High School: Hargis is a 2010 graduate of Robinson High School, located just southeast of Waco, Texas. She averaged 14.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game while shooting 52 percent from the field as a senior, guiding the Rockets to an overall record of 20-12, a second place finish in District 19-3A and a spot in the 3A Region Quarterfinals. Hargis had a story book junior season in 2009 as Robinson went 34-5 and won the Texas 3A state championship. She was named the championship game MVP, scoring 20 points and recording 13 rebounds in the Rockets' 49-33 win over Argyle High School. Hargis was named to the All-State Tournament Team and All-Region Tournament Team. She averaged 10.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks as a junior, earning Waco Tribune-Herald SuperCenTex First Team honors as well as All-District 19-3A First Team accolades. Hargis was named to the Waco Tribune-Herald's SuperCenTex Second Team as a sophomore and a senior. She was a three-year all-district performer. She played AAU ball with the DFW Elite on the T-Jack Elite squad. Hargis was rated the No. 43 post player in the nation by ESPN.com's HoopGurlz coming out of high school, and she was a 2010 McDonald's All-American Game nominee. She was a four-time academic all-district selection and was also involved in the National Honor Society, volleyball, track & field, Spirit Leading and FCA at Robinson.

Academics: Hargis graduated from Colorado in May 2014 with her bachelor's degree in Psychology. She was a two-time member of the Pac-12 Conference Women's Basketball All-Academic Team (2013 & '14).

Personal: Rachel Marie Hargis was born on March 12, 1992, in San Antonio. She is the daughter Gary and Alicia Hargis. She is one of four children with two older brothers, Matt and Joel and one younger brother, Jordan. She says the biggest moment in her high school career was being named MVP after winning the state championship her junior year. Hargis is ambidextrous as she writes left-handed and does almost everything else with her right hand.
