Top junior college player to transfer to LSU

LSU coach Nikki Caldwell says junior college standout LaQuinta

Jefferson has committed to transfer to LSU for the 2013-14

season.

Jefferson, a 6-foot guard at Jefferson College in Missouri, will

enroll at LSU in the spring of 2013 and will have two years of

remaining eligibility when she joins the Lady Tigers.

Caldwell calls Jefferson ”a tremendous all-around player and

scorer.”

Jefferson, a native of La Vergne, Tenn., averaged 17.6 points,

6.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.9 steals per game for Jefferson

College as a sophomore this past season. She led the Lady Vikings

to a 31-5 record and a National Junior College Tournament

berth.

She was one of three finalists for the Women’s Basketball

Coaches’ Association national junior college player of the year

award.
