The Ferris State University women's basketball program has announced the signing of prep forward/center Felicia Standley (Augusta/Galesburg-Augusta), who will join the Bulldogs for the 2009-10 season, according to head coach Tracey Dorow.
The 6-2 Standley helped Galesburg-Augusta High School to a 19-7 overall record along with both a district and regional championship as a senior during the 2008-09 campaign. She totaled 343 points, 224 rebounds and had 30 steals this past season under prep head coach Tim Born.
"Felicia comes from a successful high school program and we're thrilled she's decided to come to Ferris," Dorow said. "She's a nice post player with a soft touch and finishes well around the basket.
"We're excited she's a Bulldog and expect great things from her in the future," added Dorow.
Standley averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, three steals and two blocks per game while playing a pivotal role in the Rams' run to the Class C state quarterfinals this year. Her production and dominating presence earned her the Kalamazoo Gazette's Class C-D Player of the Year honor for 2008-09. She was also pegged among the state's top 100 prep seniors this season by Michigan Girls Basketball Report.
A All-Kalamazoo Valley Conference selection, Standley was named to the 2009 Associated Press Class C Honorable Mention All-State squad for the second-straight season and earned Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) Class C All-State kudos. The Detroit News had her listed as a Class C All-State Honorable Mention pick while she attained Detroit Free Press All-State Fourth Team laurels. Standley finished her senior campaign with 10 double-double (points & rebounds) efforts and was chosen as a Kalamazoo Valley Association All-Star by the conference's coaches this season.
Standley joins a pair of fall prep signees, forward/center Katy Fox (Royal Center, Ind./Pioneer) and forward/center Leah Kebler (Midland/Dow), as FSU's current recruits for the 2009-10 campaign to date.
The Bulldog women concluded the year with a 13-15 overall record after winning seven of their final nine contests. The Bulldogs also made their 10th consecutive and 11th overall berth in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Tournament where they advanced to the semifinals for the third-straight year.
