I sent these tidbits out on Twitter on Thursday, but I thought I would also share them on the blog for those that missed it.
The Lady Toppers officially signed two recruits during November’s early signing period – Green County senior guard Micah Jones and Jeffersonville (Ind.) senior forward Jalynn McClain.
Green, who missed her junior season with a torn ACL, has been enjoying a stellar start to her senior year.
The 5-foot-8 guard is averaging 20.3 points and six rebounds through 16 games for Green County, which has begun its season at 11-5. Jones set the school record for points in a game in the Dragons’ first contest of the season.
McClain has also been rehabbing from ACL tear, although hers occurred much more recently in June. McClain said in November that she planned to return to the court in January if her rehab went as expected, and it looks like that projection will ring true.
McClain, a 6-foot forward, told me Thursday that she has returned to practice for Jeffersonville. The current plan is for her to return to games after getting her feet wet again in practice.
McClain averaged 15.6 points and six rebounds as a junior.
