CSU Women's Hoops Adds to Transfers

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State women's basketball team has signed Megan Jacobs and Roichelle Marble to financial aid agreements, head coach Ryun Williams announced on Monday.

Marble, a 5-foot-7 guard from Des Moines, Iowa, will have immediate eligibility for Colorado State as a redshirt senior in 2018-19. Jacobs, a 6-foot-1 guard/forward from Las Vegas, Nev., will have two years of eligibility remaining upon joining the Rams.

“I’m excited about the basketball ability of both Roichelle and Megan, but equally excited about how they can help carry on the tough-minded winning culture already established here at CSU,” Williams said. “These are two really solid young women with many immeasurables that will add to the CSU winning culture, both on and off the court.”

Jacobs is a 6-1 guard/forward who played for Utah in the Pac-12 for two years. As a sophomore, Jacobs ranked in the top five among all Utah players in field goal percentage (.429), three-point percentage (.313) and assists (46) despite playing limited minutes in 2017-18 (13.4 per game).

In high school, Jacobs was a four-time letter winner in women’s basketball for Bishop Gorman High School, earning All-State honors twice. 

“Megan has an incredible skill set and the ability to play all over the floor, both offensively and defensively." said CSU coach Ryun Williams. "She has a very high basketball IQ. We’re excited to bring in a player like Megan, whose skills allow her to affect a game in so many ways.”

MArble is a 5-7 senior coach, who is transfering from Wisconsin. After a red-shirt season in 2014-15, Marble appeared in 88 games for Wisconsin -- 28 games as a freshman and 30 games in each of her sophomore and junior seasons. Among her top offensive outings were double digit scoring efforts against Mountain West foe San Diego State (13 points), Big Ten opponent Michigan State (11 points) and Northern Illinois (12 points).

Marble had a decorated high school career at East High School in Des Moines, Iowa, and was a three-time all-state selection by the Des Moines Register, including first-team all-state honors in her last two seasons. Marble was a McDonald’s All-America nominee in 2014, and that year, was selected to compete in the 2014 Iowa Girls Elite All-Star Game. Among her other honors were a pair of Central Iowa Metro League first-team selections.

“We are very excited to add Roichelle to the Ram family," Williams said. "Her athleticism, quickness and ability to handle the ball will really help our roster. Roichelle has a nice skillset at both the point and off-guard positions, and we really like the very competitive and tough mindset that we know she’ll bring.”
