New Orleans, LA - Dillard University athletic director/head women's basketball coach, Kiki Baker Barnes, has announced the signing of their third recruit for the 2012 class, Je'nae Strong from Dodge City Community College.
Coach Barnes believes that Je'nae will develop into one of the premier guards to watch next year. "Strong is a prolific scorer as evidenced by her stats and she handles the ball with confidence. With the loss of one of our leading scorers, we see Strong being able to step in and fill that void immediately." said Barnes. "Not only is she confident in her abilities, but she is a team player and loves to play defense. She will definitely fit in with the young ladies returning and the other players who have signed to play at Dillard."
Strong was a highly sought after recruit who turned down several Division I and Division II programs to attend Dillard. "My education is the most important to me and Dillard is ranked in the top 10 academically, " said Strong. "I also want to be a part of a family environment and closer to home." Strong intends to major in computer science.
