REPORT: Indiana State to hire Toledo’s Vicki Hall as new Women’s Basketball Coach

The Tribune Star is reporting that Indiana State will name Toledo associate head coach Vicki Hall as their new head women’s basketball coach. A press conference has been scheduled for 3pm tomorrow. Hall will replace interim head coach Josh Keister who took over for Joey Wells back in January.

Hall, who has been at Toledo since 2012, was named the 1988 Indiana ‘Miss Basketball’ and received the Gatorade and Naismith National Player of the Year as a senior. A 2015 inductee into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, she scored 1,755 points in high school and graduated as the state’s seventh all-time leading girls’ scorer.

Hall went on to letter four years at Texas (1988-93) and was named to the Southwest Conference All-Decade Team for the 1990s. She was part of four straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament and wrapped up her collegiate career ranked in the Top 11 in school history in eight categories — three-point field-goal percentage (.404, 3rd), total points (1,831, 6th), three-point field goals (115, 6th), points per game (15.6, tied for 6th), field goals (718, 7th), overall rebounds (887, 7.6, 8th), free throws (280, 11th) and free throws attempted (417, 11th).

Hall entered coaching following an extensive 16-year professional career. Hall spent time overseas with teams in Switzerland and Greece before returning stateside for stints with the Colorado Xplosion (1998-99) and Nashville Noise (1999-2000) of the ABL and the Cleveland Rockers (2000-01) and Los Angeles Sparks (2002) of the WNBA. She also spent seven years playing for teams in Italy, France and Israel, helping lead Pool Comense to the ‘Final Four’ in Italy in 2006.

More on this when it becomes official tomorrow.
