DeHaan finds new home on volleyball court

August 2, 2011

Allyssa DeHaan made a name for herself on the basketball court as one of the most tenacious shot-blockers in the history of the NCAA.

The 6-foot-9 former MSU women’s basketball star once again will look to make a name for herself as she is scheduled to join the Grand Valley State University volleyball team in the fall.

Despite DeHaan’s graduation after four seasons at MSU, NCAA rules dictate than an athlete can play an additional season of a different sport if they are taking graduate courses given that all competition is within 10 semesters. DeHaan — who ranks second all-time in Division I history with 503 career blocks — is scheduled to participate in fall camp and will be eligible for one season with the Lakers.

In her time at MSU, the four-time All-Big Ten selection DeHaan holds the school’s blocked shots record and ranks fourth all-time in points (1,649) and rebounds (919). DeHaan also holds the distinction as the tallest player in MSU women’s basketball history.
