Jazzmin Smith has maintained above a 3.5 GPA going on four years.
Women's Basketball - Tue, Oct. 2, 2012

Dillard University senior Jazzmin Smith has been selected to the women's GCAC Preseason All-Conference team.  Last year Smith averaged 14.7 points per game, 7.3 rebounds per game, 1.8 assists and steals a game, and earned All-American Honorable Mention honors. 

The 5'11" forward had her best numbers during her sophomore year when she averaged 16.1 points per game and 7.5 rebounds a game and shot an astonishing 61 percent from the field, which earned her All-American Honorable Mention honors as well.

This year Smith is focused and determined to have an outstanding final season at Dillard.

"Personally I feel like I'm going to have a promising season," said Smith.  "In my four years, I have grown mentally, because the mental aspect was big coming here to Dillard." 

When asked about the rest of the Lady Bleu Devils, Smith was confident in her answer.

"We have a bunch of people who are on the same page," said Smith.  "We are here for a reason, and that is to win."

Smith was then provided with a list of the others who made the women's preseason GCAC All-Conference team, and she humbly gave her thoughts.

"I feel like all of them are great athletes, as well as myself, so I am striving to be player of the year," said Smith.  "I've been working hard for three years and if I do what my coaches tell me, I feel like I have a very high chance of getting it and I won't step down from the challenge." 

Lady Bleu Devils head coach Kiki Baker Barnes agrees.  "She is going to do her job, and she plays much bigger than she is, that's why she is the best post player in the conference," said Barnes.

Sometimes being a post player has its disadvantages, where the norm for most of these tall or lanky athletes is that they have a dominant presence inside the paint, however, if asked to step back and hit a deep jump shot, they cannot do it on a consistent basis.  Smith is obviously unique in her very own way due to her improved range throughout her collegiate career at Dillard.

"She has really improved her outside shot which makes her a threat," said Barnes.  "Off the court she is a leader, people respect her, she is smart and she is very mature.  She has wisdom beyond her years."  

Smith is a current Academic All-American as well, as she has maintained above a 3.5 GPA in college.
