Women’s Basketball Announces Pair of NLI Signings – Binghamton University Athletics

VESTAL, N.Y. – The Binghamton women’s basketball program has announced the signing of Anna Long (Miamisburg, Ohio) and Meghan Casey (White Plains, N.Y.) as part of the National Letter of Intent (NLI) early signing period. Each of them will join the Bearcat program as freshmen next fall.

“Both Meghan and Anna come from successful high school and AAU programs,” head coach Bethann Shapiro Ord said. “They will bring a winning mentality and competitiveness to our program each day. We are excited to add these two high-character and hard-working young women to our family.”

Long is a 5-9 guard from Miamisburg High School. Her AAU Team is the Dayton Lady Hoopstars.

As a junior, Long was named first-team All-GWOC Conference, third-team All-Southwest Ohio and first-team All-Area by the Dabbelt Report. In addition, Long has been named a District 15 Underclassman All-Star.

Long is a two-year captain and three-time team MVP at Miamisburg High School. During her junior year, she averaged 14 points, four assists, four rebounds and three steals per game.

“Anna is a versatile guard who can play multiple perimeter positions for us,” Shapiro Ord said. “Her quickness and athleticism gives her the ability to create off the bounce for herself and others. Anna’s intensity on the defensive end allows her to disrupt offenses and be a rebounding presence at both ends.”

Casey, meanwhile, is a 5-9 guard from the Ursuline School. Her AAU Team is the Empire State Basketball Club.

At the Ursuline School, Casey has been a two-time All-Section honoree and has led her team to a pair of Section 1 titles. She has also been named the MVP of the Battle of the Boro as well as a Hoop Group Showcase League first-team all-star. As a junior, Casey averaged 17 points, seven assists, four steals and five rebounds per game.

In the classroom, Casey has a 4.26 GPA and is a member of the National Honor Society.

“Meghan is a heady combo guard with a great feel for the game,” Shapiro Ord said. “Her ability to shoot the ball will stretch the floor and will give us a different look at the point guard position. Her nose for the ball will impact the game both offensively and defensively.”

Binghamton hosts Canisius at noon on Saturday.
