John A. Logan women’s basketball star Jeniah Thompson announced her commitment to the Wichita State Shockers on Saturday.

The former Carterville Lions star was one of the top performers in the NJCAA last season, averaging 23.2 points per game.  That mark was #2 in the nation.  She also ranked 9th in the nation for rebounds per game at 11.9.

Thompson helped lead the Lady Vols to a 14-11 season and a third place finish in the GRAC.  The Vols made it to the Conference Tournament Semifinals with Thompson before falling to eventual champs Wabash Valley.

Thompson had a short stint at the Division I level earlier in her college career when she was at Southern Illinois University.  She played a very limited role, only garnering 5 minutes of playtime in the first half of the 2020-21 season before deciding to transfer to John A. Logan College.
