Three Ole Miss Seniors Invited To Women’s Hoops Combine
OXFORD, Miss. (Ole Miss Athletics) – Ole Miss seniors Kenyotta Jenkins, Valencia McFarland and Diara Moore have been invited to participate at the Pro Hoops Combine in Nashville on Saturday (April 5) in conjunction with the 2014 Women’s NCAA Final Four.
The Pro Hoops combine is an invitation only event that provides some of the top collegiate seniors to be seen by WNBA coaches and staff members in advance of the WNBA Draft held on April 14 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. Additionally, international coaches will be on hand during the event.
Jenkins and Moore both provided some memorable moments during the 2013-14 campaign. Jenkins will be remembered for her tip-in to send the Rebels to an 87-85 win over Mississippi State, giving Ole Miss its first SEC victory. Jenkins also sealed Ole Miss’ win over Arkansas in the SEC Tournament with another tip-in. Moore posted 10.2 points per game and tied her career high with 25 points against Tulane and closed her collegiate career with a career-high eight assists against Auburn in the SEC Tournament.
McFarland closed her collegiate career as one of the best to play at Ole Miss. She closed her career with 1,655 points and graduates as the No. 6 scorer in program history. The Edwards, Miss., native scored 20 or more points on 15 occasions this season and closed the season with double figures in each of Ole Miss’ last nine games. McFarland joins former Ole Miss great Armintie Price as the only Rebels to lead their team in steals in four consecutive years and is one of five players with 1,000 points and 500 assists. McFarland is also a two-time finalist for the C Spire/Gillom Trophy, awarded to the top women’s basketball player in Mississippi.
