Three guards sign with CU women
Jan 19, 2007 12:00 am
Three transfers have signed with Cumberland University for the 2007-08 basketball season, women's coach Clint Mason announced.
Tabreka Pollard, a 5-6 freshman guard from Dickson, will transfer from Southern Union Community College in Wadley, Ala.
Keshia Brown, a 5-8 freshman guard from Clarksville, is already at Cumberland, finishing up a redshirt season which began last fall at Labette Community College.
Shakeya Johns, a 5-5 freshman guard from Antioch, is transferring from Prairie View A&M.
Pollard is averaging 11.33 points per game and shooting 46 percent from the three-point line at Southern Union.
"Tabreka has an incredible heart for the game of basketball," Southern Union coach Janet Sparks said. "She has overcome personal adversity while playing at Southern Union, but always gives 100 percent. Her dedication and love for the game shines through on the court.
Mason said, "Tabreka is an excellent shooter with excellent athletic ability. She will have three years of eligibility left when she enrolls in CU."
Brown averaged 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.6 steals and 4.2 assists per game as a senior at Clarksville.
"Keshia is an outstanding athlete who will be a great defender," Mason said. "Keshia has an extremely quick first step off the dribble. As Keshia continues to develop her outside shooting she will be a tremendous asset to our program. Keshia is currently enrolled at CU and will have four years of eligibility remaining."
Johns averaged 17.3 minutes as a freshman at Prairie View last fall. She set Antioch's alltime scoring record with 1,736 career points. She averaged 18.1 points, two assists and 2.1 steals per game with the Lady Bears.
"Shakeya is another quick athlete," Mason said. "She is an outstanding three-point shooter and has the ability to score off the dribble. Shakeya is currently enrolled at CU and will have three years remaining."
