Abington’s Cire Worley, who will continue her basketball career at UMass Lowell, is following in the footsteps of her father, West Chester University Hall of Famer Eric Worley, writes Joey Piatt for The Philadelphia Inquirer

Worley played at Central High School before being recruited by West Chester University. He was a 1,000-point scorer for the Golden Rams, which cemented his position as a member in their Hall of Fame. 

He spent time as a coach in the Philadelphia region before founding the Philly Triple Threat AAU program, where he serves as program director. His main reason for starting the program was the lack of competitive options for Cire’s older sister, Dianna Thomas-Palmer. 

In addition to her father and sister, Cire also found inspiration in her cousin, Aaliyah Worley, who played for Stony Brook. 

The young player credits her basketball development partly due to spending time around the players who participate in her father’s AAU program. 

“My sister and I are kind of far apart in age, so I was able to experience her and her college journey [and] my cousin and her college journey,” she said.
