Redhawks Gain Fourth Women's Basketball Signee

Nov. 28, 2007

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Southeast Missouri State women's basketball head coach John Ishee has announced the signing of Three Rivers Community College player Victoria Smith (East St. Louis, Ill.) to a National Letter of Intent to compete for the Redhawks starting with the 2008-09 school year.

Smith is the third player from Three Rivers to sign with Southeast joining current players Missy Whitney (Charleston, Mo.) and Tierra Johnson (Poplar Bluff, Mo.).

Smith is currently averaging 22 points and 10.5 rebounds per game for Three Rivers where she is coached by Jack Childress. In addition, she is shooting 83 percent from the free-throw line, 43 percent from the field and 42 percent from three-point range. She is rated the 43rd-best junior college player in the country by the Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. Last season, Smith earned All-Region 16 honors as a freshman after averaging 16.3 points and 12.5 rebounds per game in addition to connecting on 42 percent of her shots.

"We are extremely excited to have Victoria join our basketball and university family. She is perhaps the strongest forward in the country - strength wise," Ishee noted. "She is in the mold of a Charles Barkley, a good rebounder and scorer both in the block and at the three-point arc."

Smith joins Bianca Beck (St. Louis, Mo.), Trevonna Cannon (Paramount, Calif.) and Amber Holmes (San Antonio, Texas), who also signed during the NCAA's Fall Signing Period.
