Women's Basketball Signs Another For 2001-02
April 18, 2001
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Jasmine Wilson, a 6-0 guard from Rancho Cucamonga, CA, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball next season at Oregon State University, announced Beaver head coach Judy Spoelstra on Wednesday.
'We're very excited that Jasmine has committed to play for Oregon State,' commented Spoelstra. 'She has a true passion for playing the game and a passion for rebounding. It was her vengeance for rebounding that brought our attention to her and we feel like she will do a great job at small forward.'
Wilson will join the Beaver squad for the 2001-02 season after graduating from Etiwanda High School. A four-year varsity player, Wilson averaged 17 points, six rebounds and four assists during her senior season and was a two-time Mt. Baldy League all-star as well as a four-time All-Tourney player and League Tournament MVP.
'The support of all of the coaches was terrific and the team had a family atmosphere,' commented Wilson's father, Greg Wilson, a former Pepperdine University basketball player. 'The Pac-10 Conference is the best conference to be in, and both Jasmine and I feel that Oregon State is on the verge of a conference championship.'
Wilson was rated as one of the top 50 high school players in California and has played on several summer travel teams, including the 1999 Summer California Academy where she was coached by Oregon State legend Ralph Miller's daughter, Shannon Jakosky.
'Jasmine is a very out-going, gregarious person,' said Spoelstra. 'She is extremely goal oriented and was keen on Oregon State from the beginning.'
'Everyone that I talk to says great things about the school and the coaches,' said Wilson. 'There are just so many reasons why I chose Oregon State, Fee was Pac-10 Player of the Year, I enjoyed meeting Mitch Barnhart...I just felt right at home.'
With the addition of Wilson, Oregon State has now inked three newcomers for the 2001-02 season.
