BRIEF

By Justin Umberson / Sports Editor –

Women’s basketball head coach Shanice Stephens continues to prove that no player is above the team or its rules as last year’s starting point guard Mansa El becomes the latest player to leave the Mean Green.

El, a freshman last season, averaged 6.5 points a game and led the team with 72 assists. She was also the first player in team history to start 29 games as a freshman.

El is just the latest to leave the team after post Brittani Bailey transferred to Texas Woman’s University in May and forward Jeanee’ Thompson followed her in June.

After one season with Stephens, senior guard Brittany James and senior post Torrian Timms, who played under former coach Tina Slinker, remain on the team to finish their eligibility.

Additionally, sophomore guard Brittney Hudson and junior guard Niqky Hughes, who were not allowed to play last season because of NCAA transfer rules, are also coming back for Stephens’ second season.

Amber Jackson, UNT’s only first-team All Sun Belt Conference player last season, was given a one-game suspension before the final game of the regular season, but was kicked off the team after for a violation of team rules.

Also receiving suspensions from coach Stephens last season were senior guards Jo Hall and Yari Escalera.
