Womens' Hoops Add 2 More JCs

Oregon St. women's basketball coach Scott Rueck added two more JC transfers to the Beaver roster, joining Oregonian Molly Schwegler.

Quortni Fambro from Decatur, GA, and ShaKiana Edwards-Teasley from Lapwai, ID, have transferred to Oregon St.

Fambro averaged 10.4 points per game to lead Northwest Florida State College, and shot 40 percent for the season, which ended with a runner-up finish at the state tournament.

Fambro transferred to NWSC from Alabama St., where as a true freshman she averaged 3.8 points and 1.4 rebounds per game.

"I chose Oregon State because when I came on my visit I loved the environment and the people," Fambro said. "I thought it would be a great opportunity to get out of the South - since the furthest I've ever traveled is South Carolina - so it's something different for me."

Edwards-Teasley comes to the Beavers after leading North Idaho to back-to-back NJCAA Tournament appearances, and the 2011 NJCAA Championship. Edwards-Teasley posted a career best 17 points in the title game, and a high of 14 rebounds in the semifinals.

 

The three JC/CC transfers will join Ali Gibson, Rueck's single freshman in next year's recruiting class. Gibson is a 5'11" guard from Woodridge, CA, and St. Mary's High School.

 

"We are excited about how our first recruiting class is coming together," Rueck said. "Not only are these student-athletes gifted basketball players who have each won at high levels, they are tremendous individuals who exemplify the qualities we seek in our program."

Fambro is a 5'8" guard, and Edwards-Teasley is a 6'2" forward, adding much needed size to the Beavers' front court, with the graduation of post player El Sara Greer.

"I liked the whole atmosphere, the style of play and coaching style at Oregon State," Edwards-Teasley said. "I'm very excited to play at Oregon State, especially in the Pac-10. I've always wanted to play in the Pac-10 since I was younger, so I'm glad I'm getting the opportunity."

Schwegler, who committed earlier in the month, is versatile enough to also play for Lower Columbia's softball team.

"She is an extremely talented, being a two sport collegiate athlete, and is a proven winner at both the high school and collegiate level," Rueck commented.
