Megan McGuire, a native of Lakewood, Ohio, was a part of some of the most successful teams in BGSU women's basketball history. McGuire was one-third of a senior class that also included Paulette Backstrom and Jackie Motycka, all of whom are now in the BGSU Hall of Fame. That group guided the Falcons to an overall record of 96-23 (.807) and a 53-7 MAC mark (.883) during their four years. McGuire and her classmates won both the MAC regular-season and tournament titles in each of their last three seasons, capping off their careers by becoming the first MAC team to advance to the second round of the NCAA Championships with a win over Cincinnati in the opening round.

McGuire earned all-conference first-team honors in her senior year, placing fifth in the balloting for MAC Player of the Year. She earned MAC All-Tournament honors that season after averaging 16 points, six assists and four steals per game in the Falcons' run to the title. Just the fifth player in school history to score 1,000 career points, she ended her tenure with 1,062 points, which currently ranks 18th on the BG chart. Following the completion of her hoops career, she joined the Falcon volleyball squad for the 1989 season, and helped that team to its first-ever MAC regular-season title.

She was inducted to the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
