Breann Hill Leaves Women’s Basketball Team

Junior forward Breann Hill has informed the coaching staff one week ago that she will leave the Women’s Basketball team and Marquette University for personal reasons. Head coach Terri Mitchell addressed Breanne’s situation before their 68-56 loss to UW-Green Bay on Saturday.

"Bre has decided to leave Marquette and move on with her collegiate basketball career. We enjoyed her time here at Marquette and wish her the best of luck in her future," said head coach Terri Mitchell.

Hill, a junior college transfer from Kirkwood Community College (Iowa), appeared in eight games for the Golden Eagles this season and averaged 3.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg over 9.4 mpg. She played a season-high 14 minutes against Sacred Heart (Nov. 16) where she scored six points and added five rebounds. She scored a season high eight points at Western Michigan (Nov. 23).

Hill had not appeared in a game since she logged 6 minutes against Northwestern back on December 2. With Jocelyn Mellen suffering a season ending knee injury earlier in the season, the Golden Eagles are now down to twelve healthy players on the roster.

The Women will be back in action on December 28th when they travel to Rochester, Michigan to take on Oakland University. Hear the game live on Marquette Radio (WMUR), with tip off set for 3:00 pm CST.
