Third McBain basketball star headed to Valparaiso

McBain junior plans to continue scoring with Valparaiso University starting in 2015.

You could say the Hamlet family has kind of a pipeline from Wexford County to Valparaiso University.

The first two girls, Elizabeth and Annemarie ended up transferring to play college basketball for the Crusaders and now McBain junior Meredith plans to join the fold after her senior season with the Ramblers.

Meredith is coming off a stellar junior year where she averaged 21.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 3.8 steals a game to go along with a first team all-state selection in Class C.

She was also in talks with Central Michigan University and Western Michigan University before finally deciding to join Valparaiso.
