TAMC Basketball Recruiting Updates


Future Lions women's basketball player Rekeshia Jones wrapped up her sophomore season at Saddleback Junior College, dropping a 67-51 decision in the regional final.

In her two seasons at Saddleback, Jones set new school records for blocked shots and field-goal percentage. She was recently named for the second-straight year to the all-Orange Empire Conference team and was also selected for third team all-state recognition.

In leading Saddleback to a 23-7 record, as a sophomore, Jones averaged 16.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.8 blocked shots, and 2.2 steals per game.

Recent Texas A&M University-Commerce men's basketball signees - P.J. Colley and Brad Hambrick - have wrapped up their successful senior seasons.

Hambrick was selected to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Class 4A all-state team. He is the first all-state player from Sherman since 1953 and averaged 23.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists.

Colley will continue a tradition of state champions to play at A&M-Commerce. Colley and Fort Worth North Crowley High School won the Class 5A State Championship, last Saturday in Austin. For the season, he averaged a team-best 7.8 rebounds a game to go along with nine points and 3.5 steals a contest. Fort Worth North Crowley is ranked No. 15 in the latest USA Today Super 25 poll.

Both Hambrick and Colley were named all-region for their efforts during the season.

***LSC Scoop - Going back to the State Championship note, last season the Lions signed 2 guards, Genevieve Campbell and Brent Stanton, who had a combined record of 79-0 their Senior years.

Campbell was 40-0 as a Senior at Rockwall High School and won the State Championship (was the leading scorer in the Championship game), and Stanton went 39-0 as the starting Point Guard on Duncanville's State Championship team.***
