With a father who was an Indiana Mr. Basketball recipient and a collegiate all-American at Kansas, basketball runs through the blood of Jessica and D.J. Magley.

Now, the Magley's basketball blood runs through WKU.

Jessica Magley followed in her younger brother's footsteps, telling the Sarasota Herald-Tribune Tuesday she's transferring from Rhode Island to WKU.

D.J. Magley signed a letter-of-intent with Darrin Horn's basketball program in the fall.

Jessica Magley comes to the Hill after two less-than-successful team campaigns at Rhode Island - the Rams finished just 14-43 in her two seasons there.

It wasn't for lack of effort on Magley's part - she started 28 of 29 games as a sophomore, finishing second on the team with 9.1 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.

Magley's two seasons at Rhode Island followed a legendary high school career at Bradenton (Fla.) Christian School, where she led the Panthers to four state semifinal appearances and had one of the best individual careers in Florida state history. Her 3,514 points are third all-time among Florida girls, while her 1,947 rebounds are second all-time.

She'll have two years of eligibility for the Lady Toppers beginning with the 2008-09 season.
