CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. — For just the first time in the Ginger High Colvin era, Lady
Tiger basketball makes a splash in the high major NCAA Division I level and landed
University of Mississippi transfer Bree Glover.
Coach High Colvin announced the transfer late on Friday night as she was heading to
a recruiting trip at a local high school.
Glover, a 5-foot-10 forward, is original from Glasgow, Ky. and will have two years
of eligibility remaining for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.
“Bree is an unbelievable talent and a huge pick up for us,” said Coach High Colvin.
“We watched her excel in high school at Glasgow under Coach (Justin) Stinson and knew she
would go on to be a great college player. We are so grateful that she decided to
come back closer to home.
“Her athleticism and overall skill set fit our style of play perfectly, and she has
the potential to be an impact player right away in our league. I can’t tell you how
excited we are about her future as a Lady Tiger.”
Glover played the previous two seasons at Ole Miss and excelled on the court. During
her freshman season, she only averaged 1.2 points and 1.3 rebounds per game in 19
appearances but that went up in her sophomore campaign. Glover played in 31 games
for the Rebels – averaging 20.3 minutes per game – and tallied 1.6 points and 4.9
rebounds per game.
The former 14th-ranked wing player in the class of 2016 according to ESPN HoopGurlz,
finished second on the team with 153 total rebounds in 2017-18 and had a career-high
10 boards in her first-career start vs. Texas Southern.
During her prep career, Glover played for Glasgow and ranked 86th nationally in her
entire class. She helped lead the Scotties to the 2014 state championship and Region
Four titles in 2012 and 2014.
In her senior year, Glover averaged 25 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.9 blocks and 3.3
assists. She set school records for career points (2,730), rebounds (1,611), blocks
(626) and assists (528). Glover also put her name in the single-game record books
for points (51) and rebounds (22).
As a junior, she averaged 19.2 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game. She also
became the all-time leading girls’ basketball player at Glasgow High School with
over 1,800 career points during her junior year.
During her AAU days, Glover played AAU along with teammate Madison Faulkner on the
Kentucky Blast where the two won an AAU National Championship together. She also
suited up with University of Kentucky’s Jaida Roper on the Tennessee Flight.
Prior to her commitment to Ole Miss, and now transfer to Campbellsville, Glover
considered options from Indiana, Kansas, Stanford and WKU out of high school.
The NCAA DI transfer is the sixth in the Colvin era – Whitney Ballinger (WKU),
Courtney Clifton (WKU), Ellen Sholtes (WKU), Mary Jehlik (Murray State), and Emily
Fox (Austin Peay).
