Don't Forget About the Women

Daphnee Frieson, one of the most hotly recruited female basketball players to come out of the Mobile area in years, announced Monday that she has committed to Ole Miss.
Frieson, a 6-foot-4 center, averaged 19 points and 16 rebounds at Satsuma last season, but has transferred back to Vigor, where she played as a sophomore. A first-team Mobile Register All-Region selection and second-team 6A all-state pick, she chose the Lady Rebels over Texas Tech, West Virginia, Michigan State, Louisiana Tech, Alabama State and Southern Cal.
"I like the atmosphere, the people, the coaching staff and the players," said Frieson, who visited Ole Miss earlier this month. "I like the way (head coach) Carol Ross came in and put Ole Miss on the map. Her program's on the rise."
