MACOMB, Ill. - Western Illinois women's basketball head coach JD Gravina announced Marley Hall (Warsaw/Warsaw) has enrolled in classes at the University and will join the program. The junior forward played the last two seasons at Illinois State, and will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2012-13 season to meet NCAA transfer rules.
Hall started in 31 of her 32 games last season for Illinois State while averaging 11.8 points (third on the team) and 5.8 rebounds (second-best) per game. She played in 30 games her freshman year and averaged 2.5 points per game.
During her four-year career at West Hancock, Hall led the Titans to a 107-23 record, winning the 2008 Class 2A state title and a runner-up finish in 2009. She finished as the school's all-time leader in points (2,602) and rebounds (1,066), earning All-Conference honors all four years and was a four-time selection to the Burlington Hawk Eye All-Area team. In 2008, she was named as the Quincy Herald-Whig and KHQA-TV 'Player of the Year'.
"We are very excited to have Marley join our program. She
was one of the top players in the area during her high school career and gained
a lot of Division I playing experience during her time at Illinois State," said
Gravina. "Even though she is not eligible to play in games this year, she will
be a great addition for our program on and off the court."
