Jill Noe Receives Extension of Eligibility
Jan. 23, 2007
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State women's basketball student-athlete Jill Noe has been granted an extension to her athletic eligibility by the NCAA, according to an announcement by the ASU women's basketball program on Tuesday.
Noe earned All-Freshman honors in 2002-03 after leading the Sun Devils and finishing 11th in the Pac-10 in scoring (12.6 points per game). She would miss the next two seasons after suffering anterior crucitate ligament injuries prior to the start of the 2003-04 and 2004-05 campaigns.
Noe returned to action for the first time since her freshman year last season and started 29 of 32 games for the Sun Devils. She finished first on the team in three-point field goals (29), tied for third on the team in scoring (7.8 points per game), assists (79) and steals (34).
Noe, who has is averaging 9.4 points for the Sun Devils in 19 starts this season, was initially granted an extra year of eligibility following her first ACL injury. Because of NCAA legislation that states a student-athlete has five years from initial full-time enrollment to compete in four seasons of competition, ASU had to submit on Noe's behalf a request for an extra year of eligibility to the NCAA Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee.
Currently No. 10 in the country, the Sun Devils (18-2, 8-1 Pac-10) return to action on Thursday night when they host No. 20 California at 6:30 p.m. in Wells Fargo Arena. The Sun Devils conclude their current four-game homestand on Saturday at noon with a showdown against No. 9 Stanford.
