Blue has received many honors this season, earning WBCA/Kodak All-Region 8 acclaim and first-team All-Pac-10 honors for the third consecutive year. She was also named to the mid-season Naismith Award list and the pre-season Wade Trophy and Wooden Award All-America lists.

In Pac-10 play, Blue led the conference with a scoring average of 18.8 points and also posted averages of 6.7 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 3.6 steals. On the year, she recorded 10 20-point games, including two 30-point games, and had two double-doubles.

She has made her mark in the UCLA history books as well, becoming just the second Bruin in history to record over 1,300 career points (1,396, 10th-most in school history) and over 400 career assists (413, sixth-most in school history). Blue also moved into fourth place on the school career charts for steals (258).
