Marshall Women’s Basketball Adds Clemons
Wing player headed to Huntington
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – San Jacinto College transfer Princess Clemons is set to join the Marshall Women’s Basketball program, head coach Tony Kemper announced Wednesday.
The 5’11” Clemons averaged 9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists at San Jacinto last season, while shooting 38.4 percent from 3-point range. The Chester, Pennsylvania native helped lead the Gators to a 25-11 record in 2017-18 and a second-round appearance in the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) National Tournament. She was named the 20th-ranked junior college player nationally by the Collegiate Girls Basketball Report and the second-rated JUCO small forward.
“Princess has shown to be an accomplished athlete at every level where she has competed,” said Kemper. “She grew up in one of the best AAU programs in the country (Philly Belles) and played junior college basketball in one of the country’s toughest regions. She has a versatile skill set on offense and is a tough, physical athlete. She will be a great addition, both on and off the floor, to our program.”
Clemons earned all-Philadelphia Catholic League honors as a sophomore and senior at Bonner and Prendergast High School in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania and garnered All-Delco honors during all four years of her high school career. As a senior, she averaged 14 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
