Hannah Lyons (Bay Mills Indian Community), from Brimley, Michigan, has committed to play for the Finlandia University women’s basketball team.
Lyons, a 5-2 guard, averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.3 steals a game for Brimley High School as a senior. She was All-Eastern UP Conference second team and UPSSA All-Upper Peninsula special mention. Lyons had 94 assists and 103 steals over the last two seasons.
“Being able to continue my basketball career after high school has always been a dream of mine,” said Lyons. “Finlandia has granted me the opportunity to continue my academic and athletic career. I am beyond excited to attend this amazing University. I want to thank my school, family, and friends that support me through everything and push me to always become a better person.”
“Hannah is our most competitive player,” said Brimley head coach Raymond Bell. “She is a true team leader. As a point guard she lead the team in rebounding, assists and steals and was second in scoring. Most importantly she was a coach on the floor. She did a great job of handling the scouting reports. She is a hard working player, quiet, but focused.”
“Hannah should compete for time at the point,” said Finlandia head coach John Motherwell. “She has good quickness and speed and knows how to battle. I’ve known Coach Bell and his staff for awhile and Hannah was one of the first players I was put onto after getting the job. Coming from that program makes her well-prepared for this level. I’m very happy she has chosen Finlandia”
