Lady Bison Add Travis to Roster

January 9, 2008

The already potent Oklahoma Baptist University women's basketball team gets an additional weapon for the stretch run with junior college All-American Taujhnae Travis joining the team.

Travis, a 5-8 guard from Humble, Texas, becomes eligible at the completion of OBU's January Term. She transferred from San Jacinto College, where she played as a freshman.

Third in the nation with a 22.3 points per game scoring average, Travis earned Kodak All-America honors for SJC. She also led the Lady Gators with 97 steals and averaged 5.5 rebounds.

"As good a player as she is, she's a better person," said OBU assistant coach John Marcum. "She is unselfish. She's going to help us."

At Humble High School, Travis helped her team to the Texas 5A state title game, where she had eight steals in an overtime loss. She was District 22-AAAAA Defensive Player of the Year and First-Team All-Greater Houston Area.

Following the 2007-08 season, Travis has two seasons of eligible remaining.
