Will Joy stay in Virginia?

Joy Caracciolo a 6-2 junior center from Stonewall Jackson High, has decommited from East Carolina since Pirates coach Sharon Baldwin-Tenor left for Georgia State. Among the schools Caracciolo reportedly has an interest in: Old Dominion, where she has already taken an unofficial visit.

This past season, the 6-foot-2 center averaged 20.9 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocked shots in helping lead the Raiders to the Group AAA state tournament. She was an all-Cedar Run District and all-Northwest Region selection.

At least 11 Division I schools have shown interest in Caracciolo, including James Madison, Delaware, George Mason and Virginia Commonwealth. Read up on this kid and you'll learn she not only plays a mean game of basketball. She's got quite the singing voice, too.


  1. She'd look great in an ODU uniform.

  2. Joy has never visited ODU. She is narrowing down her choices and her top 4 right now are University of Cincinnati, Boston College, VA Tech, Univ of South Carolina. She will start official visits this month and will finalize her decision before the 2010-2011 season begins.
