When she publicly announced in December that her number would be retired, Hile said, “I am truly humbled and honored to have my number retired and to be part of such a great tradition in the state of Indiana. I never set out to break records and win awards. I played simply for the love of the game and the school. I feel lucky to have played in an era that laid the foundation for the future of women’s basketball. I cherish my memories and time spent at the ISU, and if not for my former teammates and coaches, this honor would not have been possible.”

Inducted into the Indiana State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005, Hile established herself as one of the greatest female basketball players in Indiana State history over the course of his career from 1983 to 1987. During his four-year career, Hile set the ISU scoring record at 1,944 points, which still stands today. His career rebound mark of 916 ranks second in program history.

Hile recorded four scoring 30-point performances in his career, which ranks second in program history while also ranking third in single-game scoring with a 37-point production against Xavier in 1986.

Hile made an immediate impact by winning the 1983-84 Gateway Conference Rookie of the Year. She continued her excellent play throughout her career as she was a four-time Gateway All-Conference recipient, including three consecutive All-Conference First Team honors. Hile also stood out in the class, earning academic GTE All-American honors in 1986-87.
