Shannon commits to Rust College
By Adam Gore
All-star forward Destini Shannon will play basketball for Rust College Lady Bearcats next season.
“Destini will make an excellent addition to coach Troy Howell’s squad,” said Itawamba Community College women’s head basketball coach Nanci Gray. “She is a proven competitor who has been instrumental in the success of our program here at ICC for the past three years.”
Shannon was a member of the 2008 state championship team, but suffered a torn ACL during the off-season that required surgery and a season of rehab.
“She approached that setback with true grit and determination which allowed her to return this season and become a starting post for us,” said Gray.
The Tupelo native averaged six points and five rebounds per game while shooting 51 percent from the floor and 61 percent from the line to earn MACJC all-star honors after her final season with the Lady Indians’ basketball program.
