NCAA Steals Champ
Congratulations Jasmine Grice, now a member of the highly acclaimed FAMU Rattlers. Florida A&M University guard Jasmine Grice received her marble plaque signifying her status as the 2013-14 NCAA Division One Women’s Steals champion. The 5-9 backcourt ace, who came to FAMU from nearby Quincy, Florida as one of the most decorated prep players in decades, finished this past season with 119 steals, good for a 3.83 per game average, making her the third Lady Rattler player to capture a national steals title.
Jasmine joins all-time NCAA Division One Steals leader Natalie White (1992, 1994, 1995) and Shelly Boston (1990, 1991), as FAMU players to win national steals championships. White still holds the NCAA career steals mark with 624, while Grice ranks fifth all-time in FAMU history with 273 steals.

Lobos Women’s Basketball go to Italy!
A basketball trip to Italy appeals to Yvonne Sanchez’s New Mexico Lobos in several different ways. Of course, there is the bonding and the basketball. That was the main thrust of the 10-day, four-game journey. However, there was a few leisurely trips on the side. The Lobos will be athletes. The Lobos will be tourists. The Lobos will eat gelato.
