Player Summary

Coaches see the danger in coaching against Lebanon's 6'1 forward Lindsey Hicks, but the Ohio state media has yet to give her much respect among her peers. If you take a look at the all-Ohio teams, Hicks frequently is listed an honorable mention, or special mention type of player. But look at summer AAU results, and you can see where her reputation is made. In the more athletic summer game, Hicks excels. She has range past the perimeter, is a solid rebounder and good open court player. She functions well at the front end of Lebanon's press, and is increasing her strength which will help her fight off double-teams. The increase in strength has also boosted her offensive board totals. The junior season at Lebanon was bittersweet. Lebanon coach Tom Hoverman had a successful 16-6 season and finished 2nd in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference, but couldn't get past #1 Mason. Not only was Mason #1 in the FAVC, but also the #1 team in Ohio and rated the #2 team in the nation by USA TODAY. Hicks was again the team MVP, averaging 21.4 points and 7 rebounds per game. She became only the second player in school history to surpass the 1,000 point scoring mark. As a freshman, Hicks made a splash on the high school circuit after the Dayton Lady Hoopsters finished 3rd at the AAU Nationals. She averaged 10 points and 14 rebounds and shot 60-percent from the floor and 48-percent from the perimeter in the AAU tournament. That summer led to USA TODAY naming her one of the nation's top five incoming freshmen. That freshman year saw her set single-season school records in total points (381), three-pointers made (32) and she tied the record for overall field-goal percentage (54.3). She averaged 18.1 points per game and was the team's most valuable player. Lindsey is actually a twin, her brother playing both football and basketball. She is a good student and will have no trouble qualifying during her senior year.

Current Player News

2-27-00...Two teams featuring two Purdue women's recruits will not meet in a state tournament for a second time in one season. Yesterday had Shereka Wright's Copperas Cove team going up against Erica Valek's Coronado team in the Texas state tournament. However, the possible next round matchup between Beth Jones' Mason and Lindsey Hicks' Lebanon was ended at the hands of Cincinnati St. Ursula. Ursula beat Lebanon 77-60 in the lower bracket of the Division I sectional. Mason had won the upper bracket on Friday. Despite 41 points from Hicks, Lebanon could not find anyone else to compliment her offense against a balanced scoring attack from Ursula. A great quote in today's Cincinnati Enquirer had Ursula head coach Tim Ballinger saying he could have sent Michael Jordan out to guard Hicks and come away unsuccessful. Game summary: [Cincinnati Enquirer] 2-25-00...Lebanon survived a scare, coming from nine points down with four minutes left to beat Amelia 59-57 in sectional semifinal action. Lindsey Hicks scored over half Lebanon's points, finishing with 32. Lebanon moves to 21-1 on the season. Next game: 2/25/00 vs. Cincinnati St. Ursula in the sectional final. A win could set up a District final game against No. 1 Mason on March 4th if Lebanon wins the sectional. 2-23-00...Lindsey scored 13 points and hit Lebanon's only perimeter shot in a first round tourney win over Harrison, 54-50. Lindsey is averaging 21.5 points per game for 20-1 Lebanon. Next game: 2/23/00 vs. Amelia. 1-9-00...Hicks showed her perimeter game by hitting four shots from downtown in Lebanon's 68-44 victory over Kings. Hicks led all scorers with 25 points. Lebanon remains undefeated at 10-0. 12-28-99...The Warriors are 9-0 after the easy 71-27 win over Carlisle. Lindsey Hicks and Anglea Prosperi each had 20 points while Jamie Gregory added 13 and Tara Siehl 10. 12-03-99...Someone sent me this newspaper clipping from a Dayton newspaper. A short season preview for Lebanon..."Look for the seasoned Warriors to roll in the FAVC Cardinal Division. They are just plain scary with much-heralded 6'1 forward Lindsey Hicks, who is headed for Purdue next year, 6'3 Angela Prosperi (East Tennessee State) and three-year point guard Jaime Gregory (10 points and 6 assists). 11-17-99...Purdue has received the LOI of Lindsey Hicks, officially making her a Boilermaker and rounding out Kristi Curry's first recruiting class. As of the end of the fall signing period, Purdue's 2000 recruiting class is ranked #1 in the country by Women's Basketball Journal. "Lindsey is an extremely talented young lady whose strength and size will give us immediate help in replacing Michelle Duhart at the forward position," Curry said after receiving Hicks' LOI. "Her faith and trust in us early on set her apart. She has the potential to be a great player at this level." 7-20-99...Lindsey Hicks is at the Nike Camp this week in Indianapolis, and the Indy Star has this report on how her commitment to Purdue has taken some of the pressure off being at the camp. 4-4-99...Purdue has received their first verbal committment for the Class of 2000. Lindsey Hicks visited campus on Friday, and the visit went so well she called to commit to the Boilers on Monday. Originally planning to take more unofficials this spring and announce early, Hicks saw a perfect fit with Purdue and needed no other visits. Hicks will likely play at the small forward spot, but can also post up. She has her academic eye on Purdue's computer design and graphics major. 3-27-99...The Dayton media recently commented that Hicks was being actively recruited by a host of schools, including Purdue, Indiana and Kentucky. 12-18-98...Scouts from Xavier, Miami, Dayton, Duke, Michigan, Purdue and Illinois all showed up to see Lebanon play against the nation's #2 team Mason. The major focus of attention was on junior forward Lindsey Hicks, who led Lebanon with 15 points in the 90-40 loss to Mason. Also catching attention was Mason sophomore center Michelle Munoz, daughter of Bengals Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz.
