HUNTINGTON, WV Marshall University head women’s basketball coach Royce Chadwick has announced the signing of Jennifer Ramirez and Fannisha Price to National Letters of Intent for the 2012-13 season.

Ramirez is a 5’6 combo guard from New York City, N.Y., where she attends the New York City Lab Museum School. As a junior in 2010, she led her team to the playoffs and scored 35 points during the playoff game. During that same season, she averaged 18.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game. To recognize her outstanding performance after the 2010-11 season, Ramirez was selected to play in New York City’s Metro Classic “Boro’s vs. the Burb’s game. The all-star game highlights the top high school boys and girls players from the city’s Long Island/Hudson Valley area.

“Jennifer is a scoring point guard who has the flexibility to play on the wing or play at the point guard position and run the show,” noted Chadwick. “She is a tremendous shooter, but also has great penetration ability and spectacular vision. We are extremely happy to have her join our program.”

Price is a 6’2 forward from Brooklyn, N.Y., where she attends the Brooklyn Generations School. For the past two seasons, she has been selected to the All-City first team and recently was voted “Brooklyn’s Pre-Season Player of the Year”. Price led her team to city championship runner-up titles her junior and freshman year and during her sophomore season she took her team to the PSAL NYC Final 4. Price has been selected to a multitude of All-Star games during her high school career including the Wheelchair Classic Charity game, the Sharette Dixon Memorial Classic game, the Metro Classic “Boro’s vs. Burb’s game, and the Daily News Golden Hoops game.

“Fannisha is an outstanding offensive basketball player,” commented Chadwick. “She has a complete offensive game. She’s a great passer and can shoot the three. She also has tremendous awareness around the basket. Fannisha has the ability to make a multitude of moves to score on the block or on the perimeter. She is a great addition to our program because of her versatility.”

“We had a need in both areas,” added Chadwick about the newcomers. “We have a power forward and two point guards graduating and felt it was key for our program.”
