Wednesday, August 31, 2005


Jilian Partin, a 5-foot-10 wing player from Loveland, Ohio, has signed to play basketball with the Lipscomb University Lady Bisons.

Partin posted per games averages of 15.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and three steals as a junior. She is a four-year starter on the varsity at Loveland High School near Cincinnati. She is a two-time team MVP and a team captain.

She is the school's all-time leading scorer for girls' basketball. She is also an honor roll student.

"Jilian is a versatile wing player," said Lipscomb women's basketball coach Frank Bennett. "She can drive the ball. She is a 3-point threat. And she can post. She plays hard. She is not afraid to get on the floor for a loose ball."

She also has four years of experience as an AAU player with three trips to the national tournament, including one Sweet 16 finish and the National runner-up champion.

"Jilian has a lot of great experience with the Dayton Hoopsters 17-and-under AAU team as they finished second in the nationals," Bennett said. "Jilian is an excellent student and a great person in addition to being an outstanding player."
