Many GSU fans may remember Hill as one of the greatest Lady Tigers in school history, becoming the first woman in NCAA Division I history to record two quadruple-doubles. She left GSU as the school-record holder in assists (612) and steals (488). Her 488 steals are also the most ever in Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) history.
She’s also GSU’s third all-time leading scorer with 2,052 points and second all-time in rebounds amassing 925. Her solid play also helped the Lady Tigers capture the 2018 SWAC Tournament title.
