Paris senior Tori Hamilton signed with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women’s basketball Friday. The 6’6″ Hamilton discusses the decision process.

Hamilton elaborates on the schools she considered and what separated SIUE.

The 2019 KRES All-Star details her interactions with the SIUE coaching staff.

Hamilton says she plans to study criminal justice at SIUE. The senior averaged almost 15 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks last year. Paris head coach Garrett Thomas describes Hamilton’s development.

Thomas’ Lady Coyotes have produced college players in consecutive years. Four-time KRES All-Star Allison Moore is a freshman starter at John Wood Community College, and Hamilton will compete in the Division I Ohio Valley Conference next year.

Thomas and the Lady Coyotes own five straight 19-win seasons. Hear Tori Hamilton’s full SIUE signing interview on the Chariton Valley Magic City Sports Talk page under the sports tab.
