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.

Strong, a 5-5 guard, was a scoring force for the Lady Conquistadors. In her sophomore season, she led her team in scoring with 13.7 points and five rebounds per game. In one of the toughest regions and conferences in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), she was ranked fifth in scoring in NJCAA region VI western division, eighth in the entire NJCAA region VI and ninth in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference (KJCCC). Strong was named KJCCC player of the week during the week of January 2, 2012 in which she scored 22 points against the #1 ranked team in the country, Hutchinson Community College, and 27 points against Barton Community College. Her outstanding performance during that week calculated to a total of 49 points and 9 rebounds for the week, an average of 24.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. As a sophomore she scored in double digits in 25 of 30 of their games.

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.
