UNIONTOWN, Pa. -- The United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) honored a pair of Marygrove women's basketball student-athletes Tuesday (Mar. 4) at the annual basketball awards banquet held in Uniontown, Pa. as the league prepares for the 2013-14 national championship tournament. The Mustangs, Janeesa Jamierson (Battle Creek, Mich./Kellogg Community College) and Joi Jennings (Detroit, Mich./Owens Community College), were honored as USCAA Academic All-Americans for their continued dedication to their academic pursuit.

Jamierson and Jennings earned their way to becoming USCAA Academic All-Americans by touting cumulative GPAs of 3.5 or higher while being a sophomore or above in academic standing. The juniors are in year one at Marygrove after transferring in from their respective junior colleges prior to the 2013-14 campaign.

Jamierson, an art major, enjoyed a successful first season donning the Green & Gold at Marygrove. In total, the junior made an appearance in all 29 games and received the starting nod in four contests. Jamierson was one of the Mustangs most consistent three-point threats after going 10-of-34 from downtown for a near 30-percent average. Jamierson chipped in 3.3 points per game in 14.6 minutes per outing in her first season as a Mustang.

Jennings, a recent Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference All-Academic Team member, appeared in four games for the Mustangs before suffering a season-ending injury in November. Prior to her injury, Jennings started a pair of contests and tallied a season-best seven points on the road against Kuyper College on Nov. 13. Jennings is a junior health science major from Detroit.

To become a USCAA Academic All-American, student-athletes must post a 3.5 or greater cumulative GPA and be a sophomore or above in academic standing per their institution. For the complete list of USCAA Academic All-Americans, click here.
