women's basketball inks two standouts
Surdokaite and Sherae Swinson to join Bearcats for 2011-12 season
VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton
women's basketball program has received a National Letter of
Intent from two high school seniors. Both of them will join the
team as freshmen next fall.
Gina Surdokaite (Lockport, Ill.) is a 5-10 shooting guard
from Lockport Township High School. As a junior, she averaged
12 points and six rebounds per game. Surdokaite is a three-year
starter and was named All-Southland Conference during the 2009-10
"Whats most exciting about Gina is her ability to
shoot the ball from the outside," head coach Nicole Scholl
said. "She can put up points quickly if you dont pay
attention to where she is on the floor. Gina plays with a lot
of confidence and will do whatever it takes to win."
Sherae Swinson (Odenton, Md.) is a 6-0 forward from Archbishop
Spalding High School. As a junior, she averaged 11.4 points,
7.3 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 assists per game. In addition,
Swinson was also named to the Interscholastic Athletic Association
of Maryland A Conference second-team.
"Sherae is a tough competitor who can play both the four
or three position," Scholl said. "She has a great outside
touch on her shot, but can also score with her back to the basket
and is a solid defender and rebounder."
Binghamton, which is currently 5-4, will lose only one player
to graduation after the current season. All five current starters
are eligible to return in 2011-12.
We are excited with our two latest additions to the Binghamton
womens basketball program," Scholl said. "They
fit in very well with our style of play and will help provide
more depth to an already solid team that is returning.
