Jemmot had an excellent career at Thomas Dale, sprinting and jumping for the Knights and winning 2010 athlete of the year honors. At George Mason, she’s had a great career and the senior is looking to go out with a bang in 13-14.
After a standout career sharing a backcourt with Duke guard Ka’lia Johnson at Thomas Dale, Frye has had an even more successful college career. In 2013-2014, she’s helped the Cougars to 4-4 start and leads the team in scoring with 15.4 points per game.
