Talented Duo Joins UMass Women's Basketball Family
Nov. 20, 2012
Hill is a member of the Althoff Catholic girl's basketball team that has averaged more than 20 wins per season during her three years with the squad while the all-conference forward and center has lettered in each scholastic season. Tarver led Northview to a Georgia Region 5 Sweet 16 appearance in 2010-11 and enters her senior campaign as an all-region and all-metro honoree after averaging 14 points per game a season ago.
"We are thrilled that Kymber and Meredith will be joining our UMass family next year," said head coach Sharon Dawley enthusiastically. "Kymber is a long, athletic post player who has great hands, good instincts and runs the floor extremely well. Meredith is a very gifted and athletic guard who will be an impact player for us on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor."
