Classroom

A sports management major with minors in communication and psychology, Hoover has a cumulative grade-point average of 3.68 and hopes to one day be a college basketball coach. She has five times been named to the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and has also made the University of Dayton Dean’s List in five out of her six semesters as a Flyer. Hoover also was named to the 2013 A-10 All-Academic Team following her sophomore season.

Character

A 2013-14 and 2014-15 team co-captain, Hoover has been a proven leader for the Flyers. She is a hard worker on and off the court and leads by example with a hard-as-nails work ethic. Hoover is a passionate player, and her tenacity propels her to make sure the task at hand is always completed. After growing up in a Christian home, her faith is a big part of her personality, and she has served as the team’s prayer leader last season.

Community

An active member of her community, Hoover has participated in a number of community service projects and activities over her three-plus seasons at Dayton. In September 2014, Hoover and her teammates spent an afternoon at the Dayton Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and in October she participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk. Hoover works locally with DECA, an after-school program helping inner-city children with homework, and every winter the team participates in a UD event called Christmas on Campus, giving out presents to local children in need. She also spent the summer before her sophomore year helping coach the Centerville Hustle, an local third-grade basketball team.

Competition

As the program’s first Atlantic 10 Player of the Year (2014), Hoover reached 1,000 career points in 2013-14 as only the ninth Flyer to reach that milestone during her junior season. Her 159 career three-pointers ranks fourth all-time in program history, and she is only 16 away from moving into third place. Hoover is a two-time A-10 All-Conference First Team honoree and also earned mention on the A-10 Third Team and All-Rookie Team her freshman season. Last season, Hoover went 117 for 125 (.936) from the free throw line, the 14th-best all-time single-season NCAA Division I total.
