Bowling Green, Ky. - Western Kentucky University women's basketball coach Michelle Clark-Heard added a third signee during the spring period with the addition of Perry County Central guard Kendall Noble.
"Kendall is another great addition to this signing class. She is one I felt we had to get," said Heard. "Not only does she have the ability to play multiple positions on the court, she is a winner and will bring that mentality to our program. I am looking for big things out of Kendall this upcoming season."
Noble played the last two seasons at Perry County Central High School, after starting per prep career at Breathitt County. The 5-11 guard helped lead the Lady Commodores to a Region 14 championship and the 2012 KHSAA Sweet Sixteen tournament. Noble came back from a knee injury near the end of her junior season to average 14.5 points and shoot 60 percent from the floor during her senior campaign. She also pulled down 9.1 rebounds per contest, helping PCC to a 30-3 record. Noble has earned all-state honors, and is also one of five finalists for the Miss Kentucky Basketball award.
She finished her prep career with 2,987 points, 1,653 rebounds, 1,014 steals and 916 assists. She also became the first player in state history to compete in six straight state tournaments, the final two for Perry County Central and four for Breathitt County.
Noble becomes the fifth member of this year's Lady Topper signing class. Bianca McGee (Michigan City, Ind., Kilgore (Texas) College) and Leasia Wright (Louisville, Ky., DuPont Manual HS) both signed earlier in the spring period. Micah Jones (Greensburg, Ky., Green County HS) and Jalynn McClain (Jeffersonville, Ind., Jeffersonville HS) inked with WKU during the fall signing period.
