After a season of steady improvement, the women’s basketball team signed four more players who will hopefully contribute to their growth in addition to the three they signed last year.

Ta’Kyla Austin averaged 19.2 points during her senior year at Northeast high school. The guard helped her team make an appearance in the state tournament. The future Osprey made a name for herself by winning the Miami Herald Player of the Year award.

Local talent and Paxon High School graduate Arianna Emanuel-Wright will be returning to Jacksonville after playing at Santa Fe College in Gainesville. During her  sophomore season, the guard averaged 20.3 points and almost six rebounds. Emanuel-Wright was also named to the FCSAA All-State and FCSAA All Tournament team due to her excellent play.

Keonna Farmer brings her talents all the way from Birmingham, Ala. The forward transferred from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Out of high school, Farmer had a four-star rank by ESPN Hoopgurlz.

TyQuandria Purifoy helped her previous school, Gulf Coast State College, to back-to-back NJCAA national championships. The guard started 36 games and shot almost 44 percent from the field.
