Recruiting: Wayne’s Olivia Trice announces verbal commitment



Wayne girls basketball standout Olivia Trice has committed to Bowling Green.

The daughter of Warriors coach Travis Trice Sr. announced her decision Wednesday.

“A new chapter in my life,” she wrote on Twitter. “So blessed and excited to be a Bowling Green Falcon.”

She shot 31.5 percent from 3-point range.

The name “Trice” has become synonymous with basketball in the area thanks to Olivia, her father and older brothers.

Travis Trice Sr. just finished his first season coaching the Wayne girls after a successful 10-year run guiding the boys’ team that included a state championship.

Olivia Trice is the second member of her team to make her college choice.
