Wheeling Central's Bucon Signs With West Liberty

Posted: Updated:

Wheeling Central's Emily Bucon signed her national letter of intent to play basketball for legendary coach Lynn Ullom at West Liberty University.

Bucon was named a Class A First-Team, All-State selection last season as a junior, when she averaged 15 points per game for Head Coach Penn Kurtz. The Lady Maroon Knights advanced to the Class A State Championship game last year, but were beaten by Huntington St.Joes.

Choosing West Liberty was easy choice for Bucon.

"It's close to home, and the best fit for me," said Bucon. "They have a great program and great coaches."

Bucon plans to major in pre optometry at WLU. She is the daughter of Jim and Lisa Bucon.
