Miranda Geever, who recently graduated from Olivet Nazarene, will have her collegiate jersey on display in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame's "Ring of Honor" in recognition of her play during this past season. The hall of fame is located in Knoxville, Tenn.

"Honestly," the 2010 Moline graduate said, "it's such an honor."

There are more than 100 jerseys on display, ranging from high school to the college level. Geever is the first Olivet Nazarene product to have her jersey in Knoxville. In leading the Tigers to the NAIA Women's National Championship, she averaged a team-high 19.5 points and nabbed 137 steals. Geever also scored more than 1,000 points in her career.

The jersey will be on display until next May.

"I definitely will go down there," Geever said.
