Lebanon's Fox signs with Murray State
Nov 30, 2012 12:00 am
MURRAY, Ky. — Lebanon senior guard Julia Fox is one of four early signees for Murray State's women's basketball program, it was announced Wednesday.
Fox, 5-8, averaged 14.1 points last season and dropped 161 3-pointers. Heading into her senior year she has amassed 960 points and is a 43-percent 3-point shooter.
“Julia is a tremendous athlete and a tremendous shooter," said Lebanon coach Courtney McFarlin, who played in the Ohio Valley Conference at Murray-rival Tennessee Tech. "She will excel in the college game due to her range. She shoots the deep ball extremely well and will be a great fit at Murray State.”
Fox helped lead the Tennessee Team Pride to five consecutive AAU state titles, as well as an AAU national championship. She was an All-Conference selection her sophomore and junior years and was selected by ESPN and HoopGurlz to compete in the Super 64 camp.
“Julia was the first person to commit in this class and someone we targeted early to be able to come in and provide our team with a serious weapon from deep," Murray coach Rob Cross said. "Her unlimited range will help give her a chance to play early in her college career. Julia is an outstanding person that has been successful on and off of the court over the years. Her character and work ethic are impressive.”
Fox and the Devilettes will be at home Friday night for a 6:30 p.m. tipoff against LaVergne at Campbell Brandon Gym/Hester Gibbs Court. It will be a Pink Out Night for cancer awareness with donations taken for Gilda's Club of Nashville.
