VESTAL, N.Y. – The Binghamton women’s basketball team has received a National Letter of Intent (NLI) from three high school standouts as part of the recent early signing period. All of them will join the Bearcats next fall.
I’m extremely excited about our incoming freshmen class,” head coach Nicole Scholl said. “It is a competitive and versatile group that gives us scoring and defensive intensity. They are players that can make an impact and add depth to our team.”
Kristin Ross (Gorham, Maine) is a 6-0 forward from Gorham High School. As a junior, she averaged 17.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. At the conclusion of the 2011-12 season, Ross was named an honorable mention Class A All-State selection. In addition, she was also named first-team All-Southern Maine Athletics Association (SMAA).
“Kristin has a relentless work ethic and is very active and aggressive both offensively and defensively,” head coach Nicole Scholl said. “She will fit in very well with our inside-outside style of play for our forward position.”
Kylie Libby (South Portland, Maine) is a 6-0 guard from Cheverus High School. As a junior, she averaged 8.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 steals and 3.6 blocks per game. Libby was an honorable mention All-SMAA selection and was a Senior Class A All-Star.
“Kylie gives us size at the perimeter and scoring from the outside,” Scholl said. “She sees the floor well and her length will help on the defensive end.”
Alexis Smith (Virginia Beach, Va.) is a 5-8 guard from Cape Henry High School. In her junior season, she averaged 11.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Smith was named the Most Outstanding Player in the 2011 Division II State Championship Game.
“Alexis adds more speed and scoring to our guard position,” Scholl said. “She has great touch from the outside, but also has the ability to get to the rim. Defensively she is very active and rebounds well from the guard position.”
