In a lot of ways Brigid Morrissey’s college basketball career parallel her high school career.
She finished junior high at Highland Hills Middle School, then expected to play for Floyd Central Head Coach Joe Voelker.
Voelker stepped down and handed the reigns over to Kirk Hamsley and with the help of Morrissey and a talented crop of athletes, the two made history.
After Morrissey’s senior year of high school, she accepted a scholarship to play basketball at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.
A short time later, there was a coaching change and she ended up playing her career under a different coach than she had planned.
Just like at FC, Morrissey and Furman Head Coach Jackie Carson worked well together and helped make some history for the Lady Paladins.
Furman didn’t make the NCAA tournament this year, but they did put together an 18-13 record and got an invite to the women’s National Invitational Tournament.
