ATHENS, Ohio – The Ohio women's basketball team will add Wisconsin transfer Jasmine Hale beginning in the 2019-20 season, head coach Bob Boldon announced on Monday (Aug. 19). Hale will sit out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA Transfer rules and will have three years of playing eligibility remaining.

"We are very excited to announce the addition of Jasmine Hale to our program," head coach Bob Boldon said. "Jasmine is a versatile guard who will fit into our system very well."

In her freshman season at Wisconsin, Hale appeared in 28 games and earned one start for the Badgers. Hale averaged 9.3 minutes per game, had eight points against Minnesota and posted a career-high seven rebounds against Chicago State.

"Jasmine is excited to use her year in residency to work with our staff and improve her game," Boldon added. "We love players who want to get better and she is definitely one of those players."

A native of Amelia, Ohio, Hale was the No. 28 ranked guard in the nation coming out of West Clermont high school. Hale averaged 13.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game during her senior year of high school. Hale was a four-time all-conference and all-district player and was honorable mention all-Ohio.
