UWG adds another recruit to the mix
Carrollton, GA – May 11, 2005 – A strong inside presence has been added to the West Georgia Braves’ 2005 women’s basketball recruiting class.
Coach Craig Roden has announced the signing of Kim Bass to a West Georgia grant-in-aid. Bass, a 5-10 post player, is a native of Memphis, Tenn., and comes to the Braves following two seasons at Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, Miss.
“We’re really glad to get Kim,” said Roden. “We went into the off-season wanting to strengthen our ability to get tough, inside points. We felt like we had to improve our returning players, and to a recruit a good, low post player. Kim fits that description very well.”
Bass, who will be a junior next season, brings strong juco credentials to West Georgia. She scored 17 points and pulled eight rebounds per game at Coahoma. Also, Bass was named the team’s MVP and played in the MJCAA All-Star Game.
Ira Peterson was Bass’ coach at Coahoma, and is among her biggest fans. “West Georgia is getting a great kid whose future is ahead of her,” said Peterson. “Kim can be an impact player for them.”
Bass graduated from Coahoma with an associate’s degree in biology. She plans to major in biology education at UWG with plans to become a teacher at the high school level.
With four recruits in the fold, Roden is setting his sights on the addition of one additional recruit for this signing season.
