U of M's Stollings to be inducted into Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame


University of Minnesota head women's basketball coach Marlene Stollings will be inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2015.

The Ohio Basketball Foundation announced a class of 11 to enter the hall. That list includes seven players, three coaches and an official.

Stollings is in her first season at the helm of the Golden Gopher women's basketball program. The university says she is considered one of the finest players to ever play in basketball-rich Ohio.

Her accomplishments include:

  • 1993 Ohio Miss Basketball
  • Two-time Division III High School Player of the Year
  • Four-time conference Player of the Year at Beaver-Eastern High School
  • Earned Kodak All-American honors as a Senior

The University of Minnesota notes that Stollings' name appears more than 30 times in the Ohio High School Athletic Association record books, and she still holds the state high school basketball scoring record (boys and girls) with 3,514 points – more than LeBron James' 2,657.

Stollings will be inducted during a ceremony on May 2, 2015 at the Columbus Convention Center.
