CHICAGO – The Notre Dame women’s basketball team will once again have a presence at the Jordan Brand Classic, now in its 19th year. The JBC, which is a celebratory game featuring the next generation of basketball standouts, has invited Irish signees Natalija Marshall and Alli Campbell to both participate.
Marshall, a 6-5 forward from Middle Village, N.Y., ranked 32nd in her class by ESPN. Marshall led Christ the King to the New York State Class AA Federation championship last season when she averaged 13.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.1 blocks per game.
In addition, Marshall has racked up over 75 wins for Christ the King over her prep career, before her senior year was cut short due to injury.
Campbell, a 5-11 guard from Bellwood, Penn., recently became the all-time leading scorer in District 6 history, surpassing the original record of 2,675 career points. She has helped her Bellwood-Antis Blue Devils to a 16-0 mark thus far this season.
Campbell has led her school to 2A state titles the past two seasons and was the 2019 USA Today Pennsylvania Player of the Year.
Current Irish who are Jordan Brand Classic alumni include Sam Brunelle, Anaya Peoples, Katlyn Gilbert and Destinee Walker
