PULLMAN, Wash. - Ravon Justice, a 5-foot-6 guard from Clarendon College (Texas), has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Washington State women's basketball team next fall, head coach Sherri Murrell announced Tuesday.
"Ravon's quickness and skills at the point guard position will bring a lot to our team,"Murrell said. "I'm pleased to have such a high quality person and player join our team."
Justice dispensed 20.2 points a game last season for Clarendon, which led the Western Junior College Athletic Conference (WJCAC). In addition, she averaged seven rebounds, five assists and three steals for the Bulldogs.
Justice's numbers earned her an honorable mention selection to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-America team, a NJCAA Region V first-team selection, as well as WJCAC Player of the Year honors.
Playing her prep ball at Atlanta High School in Atlanta, Texas, Justice garnered a first team all-state selection and was a two-time All-Region pick. Justice lettered four years in basketball, volleyball, and softball and three years in track during her high school career.
"What you are going to get from Ravon is that she never takes a minute off," said Clarendon coach Wade Scott. "She plays hard for 40 minutes and she puts in the necessary effort it takes to win. The best thing of all about her is that she is a great person."
The addition of Justice rounds out Murrell's spring recruiting class. Bianca McCall, a 6-foot-1 forward from Santa Rosa (Calif.) Junior College, joined the Cougars earlier this month.
