CHICAGO – Revi McMahon, a 5-6 senior point guard at Stagg High School in Palos Hills, Ill., recently signed a letter of intent to continue both her athletic and academic career at Saint Xavier University as a member of the Cougar women's basketball program. The Palos Park, Ill., native will be a freshman at SXU in the fall of 2013 and compete for playing time on the court during the 2013-14 season. Saint Xavier University women's basketball coach Bob Hallberg feels that McMahon is a perfect fit for his program's style of play and that she will make a seamless transition to the college game.
"Revi should fit right into our program," said Hallberg. "She loves basketball and spends countless hours in the gym working on her game. This is the type of work ethic needed to be successful and that is why she is one of the best guards in the area in my opinion. I think Revi will have a great career at Saint Xavier."
McMahon is the daughter of Michael and Tanya McMahon of Palos Park. She was coached by Bill Turner at Stagg High School. She also played club basketball for Illinois X-citement based out of Blue Island, Ill., under Xaver Walton. In early February, McMahon was named the Beggar's Pizza/SouthtownStar Girls Basketball Player of the Week after helping Stagg win the Southwest Suburban Conference Red Division title by scoring a game-best 25 points in a victory over Lincoln-Way North High School.
