Senior Abby Ballman's jersey will be displayed in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame's "Ring of Honor" for her outstanding play during the 2011-2012 season. 

Ballman, a senior guard from Cincinnati, OH, averaged 13 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.9 steals for the Bears.  Ballman, a true competitor, showed her dedication to the Bears as she returned to the court for the NAIA National Tournament after breaking her arm in the final regular season game.  Despite playing with a broken arm, Ballman averaged 13 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 assists in the tournament and shot 50 percent from the field.

This season Ballman was named 1st Team All-America, 1st Team All-Mid-South Conference and earned the NAIA Tournament Hustle Award.

The "Ring of Honor" currently displays over 100 jerseys, including high school and college All-Americans from the 2011-2012 season.
