BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO)-- Since middle school, Bowling Green girls' basketball standout Keely Morrow has been one of the better players in the region and after high school, she's out to prove she can maintain a high level of play in Division I as she signed to play for Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
"It's been my dream for the longest and now it's finally coming true," Morrow said. "Now I'm ready to go up to Lipscomb and show what I have.
"Campus is beautiful. It's only in Nashville so it's not too far from family, they can come watch me play. Coach (Greg) Brown and his coaching staff are amazing and they made me feel right at home."
Morrow joined the Lady Purples her sophomore season after previously playing for Franklin-Simpson. In her first year with BGHS, the team won the 4th Region championship and advanced to the state tournament.
Morrow has scored more than 2,000 career points and received multiple all-district and regional honors during her playing career.
"She led them in scoring last year and probably looking for the same type of results this year," Bowling Green girls' coach Calvin Head said about working with Morrow. "With her leadership and her ability to play, it's been huge for us so far."
Now that Morrow signed on the dotted line she can now focus on her senior basketball season and has goals to not only improve her game to prepare for college but lead a very young Lady Purples team.
"We're really young this year," Morrow said about the team. "Inexperienced, because I'm the only senior. But my goal this year is to reclaim the district championship and go farther into the region tournament."
