Beavs Add Jen'Von'Ta Hill From Hutchinson CC
Written by John Cantalupi    Monday, 28 April 2014 12:52   

CORVALLIS, Ore. –Oregon State women’s basketball head coach Scott Rueck announced Monday that point guard Jen'Von'Ta Hill has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the program for the 2014-15 season. A transfer from Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kan., the 5-foot-8 Hill will have two years of eligibility remaining.

 

“This is an important day for our program,” Rueck said. “With the addition of Jen to our roster we bring in a dynamic point guard, a proven winner and another outstanding individual. I am honored and excited to welcome Jen to the Oregon State women’s basketball family.”

 

Hill started all 36 games for the Blue Dragons this past season, averaging 11.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.7 steals per outing. A power at the junior college level, Hutchinson went 35-1 in 2013-14, made a third straight trip to the NJCAA Final Four, won its third consecutive Region VI Championship and claimed its fourth Jayhawk West Conference title in a row.

 

As a sophomore, Hill was a second-team all-conference performer and the Region VI Tournament MVP. She led the Jayhawk West in assists and is one of just four HCC players with 300 or more in a career. Hill leaves the Blue Dragons second in both career assists (322) and steals (170). Her 179 assists this year tied for fourth in single-season school history and her 98 steals were fourth. Hill had 13 career games with seven or more assists, 10 coming this season.

 

“Her success on the court speaks for itself,” Rueck added. “But more importantly, she made a big impression on us all as a leader who is willing to do whatever it takes for her team to be successful.”

 

In late January, Hill earned Jayhawk Conference Division I Women’s Basketball Player of the Week honors after averaging 20.5 points on 62.5 percent shooting to go along with 7.5 assists, 5.0 steals and 4.0 rebounds in victories over Cloud County and Pratt. She had eight steals and seven assists as part of an 18-point effort against the Thunderbirds on January 22 and hit 9-of-13 from the floor at Pratt, tallying 23 points and eight assists.

 

Originally from St. Paul, Minn., Hill played three seasons at St. Paul Central in the Twin Cities before finishing her prep career at Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas.

 

Hill’s signing bolsters a strong returning nucleus for OSU, which led the Beavers to a record-setting season in 2013-14. Oregon State went 24-11 overall, 13-5 in the Pac-12, won its first NCAA Tournament game since 1995 and returns 95 percent of its scoring and 96 percent of its rebounds this fall.
