2011-12 SEASON OUTLOOK

Virginia State University’s women basketball team will implement a new look for the 201112 season. Head women’s basketball coach, James Hill has won over 80 games entering his sixth season. In 2010-11 VSU ended the season with a 19-9 overall record, went 12-6 in CIAA conference play, and finished tied for first place in the Northern Division with a 9-3 record. VSU ran a complex, up-tempo offensive style a season ago, that led the CIAA conference in several statistical categories. The Lady Trojans led the CIAA conference in scoring margin (+12.0 ppg), field goal percentage (.403), three point field goal percentage (.333), and also in defensive rebounding (37.0 rpg). Hill will build his 2011-12 team around a more defensive philosophy. “There is no shortcuts to success, it takes hard work, commitment, sacrifice, and discipline,” says Hill. VSU’s coaching staff wants their Lady Trojans to become stronger defensively than they were last year with the departure of six seniors. The 2010-11 CIAA conference leading scorer, Rhon’Neisha Taylor averaged 17.7 ppg and was named to her second All-CIAA team. This year VSU will have a tough task of replacing her senior leadership and scoring ability. Returning for the Lady Trojans will be senior Marquilla Evans (guard,5-7), junior Quiana Kizer (forward,6-0), senior Mariame Sylla (center,6-3), and junior Ashley Whitaker (guard,5-10). Evans and Kizer will bring experience after playing ample minutes for VSU a season ago. The coaching staff expects all four Lady Trojans to have breakout seasons. Coach Hill has also redecorated his roster with a host of new faces. The Lady Trojans have several newcomers added to the mix of returners from a season ago. LaMesha Deal (forward,5-10), Shantel Crout (guard,5-9), Frances Nerius (center,6-1), Brittany Newby-Ellis (guard,5-7), Takeema Blakney (58,guard), Asysa Smith (forward,5-8), and Jasmine Stewart (guard,5-7) are all transfers looking to make an impact at “The Land of Troy”. Jasmine Deloatche (forward,5-11), Dashae Jones (guard,5-7), Briante Bond (guard,5-6) are all looking to make an impact as true freshmen added to the 2011-12 Lady Trojan basketball roster. The Lady Trojans will begin their 2011-12 CIAA Championship run at the “Conference Challenge” in Shepherdstown, WV on Nov. 12th against host Shepherd University and Kutztown University. As the Thanksgiving holiday arrives, VSU will host Mercy University, Augusta State University, and Elizabeth City State University in the 4th Annual Chik-Fil-A Classic on Nov. 25th.
