Bellwood-Antis alum Alli Campbell enjoys solid college debut for Notre Dame

In the tremendous history of Blair County girls basketball, there’s never been a better player than Bellwood-Antis product Alli Campbell. Her phenomenal high school career is summed up below, from her college bio page at Notre Dame.

  • Won two state titles with the Blue Devils. Was in pursuit of a third when her season was canceled in the State Quarterfinal round
  • On March 10, 2020, Campbell surpassed the 3,000-point milestone – first male or female from Blair County to do so
  • Finished with 3,019 career points, 964 rebounds, 534 assists, 477 steals and 177 blocks

Campbell made her college debut for Notre Dame on Friday and had a solid game, even though the No. 22 Irish lost their opener at Ohio, 86-85.

Campbell did not start but played 28 minutes and 4 seconds as one of only seven Notre Dame players to see the court. She scored 6 points on 2-of-3 shooting from the field, had three defensive rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Campbell’s plus-minus for the game was +6, meaning her team outscored the opponent by six when she was on the court. One other Irish player was +16, but four others were negative.

All in all, Campbell had a good debut, and the fact that she played 28 minutes in her first college game is impressive.

Notre Dame has a new coach this season, Niele Ivey, after the retirement of legendary coach Muffet McGraw.

Campbell and the Irish play their next game Sunday at home against Miami, Ohio.
