Amateur career

Kyle Hill attended and played basketball at Argo Community High School in Argo, Illinois. He played college basketball at Eastern Illinois University.

Pro career

After being selected in the 2001 NBA Draft, Hill immediately went to Europe and signed with the French team ASVEL, where he played in the Euroleague with Nikola Vujčić, where he averaged 13.4 points per game and won the French Cup.

Hill moved to the French club Pau-Orthez next, where he recorded 9.5 points per game in 25 minutes per game. He then played briefly with AEK Athens in Greece, and then with Lauretana Biella in Italy during the 2003-04 season. He followed that with an excellent season with the Croatian club Zadar.

After Zadar, he moved to the Italian club Snaidero Udine, where he played well and averaged more than 15 points per game during the 2005-06 season. Soon after that he moved to the Spanish team Girona, but an injury that he suffered to his Achilles tendon prevented him from playing much. During the 2007-08 season, Hill played five games with Bosna in Sarajevo [1] and he then returned to Udine. He finished the season playing with Snaidero Udine, where he formed one half of the same dynamic duo along with Jerome Allen for the team, and was once again coached by Cesare Pancotto, just like in the 2005-06 season.
