Women's Basketball - Thu, May 18, 2017

WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University women's basketball coach Tory Wooley has added 5-4 point guard Danielle Rainey and 6-0 shooting guard/small forward Jazmyne Jackson from West Florence High School in Florence, S.C. for his 2017-18 squad.

    

Danielle Rainey:

 

"Danielle Rainey is a dynamic guard that we are adding to our program," commented Coach Wooley.  "Her essence as a true point guard and leadership qualities are what we value from that position.  Danielle loves to compete and her infectious personality, positive attitude, and ability to get to the basket will make her an exciting player to watch.  We look forward to Danielle becoming a part of the Skyhawk family and growing into the floor general we need on the court during the next four years."

 

Daughter of Shena Harrison and granddaughter of Margaret Harrison, Rainey played for West Florence High School for three seasons.  She averaged 11.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 21 games for the Knights during her senior season.  Rainey led her region in assists during the 2015-16 season, received All-Hoopzone Team honors in both the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, and led her team in points and assists during the 2016-17 season.

 

Rainey commented about her reasons for choosing Point University as the place where she will continue her education and basketball career, "I chose Point University because of the family environment and the players made me feel very welcomed when I visited."

 

Jazmyne Jackson:

 

"We are excited about the addition of Jazmyne Jackson to the Skyhawk women's basketball family," said Coach Wooley.  "Jazmyne is a great student and athlete and can shoot with the best of them.  Her ability to shoot will stretch the defense and her versatility and size will be great for our program.  Jazmyne is committed to working on her game next season and will be redshirted as a freshman.  I am confident that with hard work and dedication, she can become an 'all-freshman' caliber player."

 

Daughter of Kimberlyn Jackson and Frankie Jackson and sister of Maya Jackson, Jackson played for West Florence High School for three seasons and averaged 9.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in 22 games for the Knights during her senior season.  Jackson also was a three time all-region player, team MVP, a six-year varsity letterman, and broke her school's three-point record.

 

Jackson said about her reasons for choosing Point University as the place where she will continue her education and basketball career, "I loved the environment of the school, the coaching staff, location, and it has the major I plan on pursuing which is biology with a concentration in pre-med.  Point University truly feels like a home away from home to me."
