||ICC’s Chills honored again by MACJC
FULTON, Miss. (WTVA/ICC Athletics) — For the second-straight week, Itawamba Community College sophomore guard Jayla Chills has been named Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.
Chills (Ripley) helped lead the Lady Indians (15-2, 6-0 MACJC North) to wins over East Mississippi and Mississippi Delta last week, averaging 26 points, 5 rebounds, 5 steals, 4 assists and 1.5 blocks per game.
“It’s a great honor,” said Chills. “I have great teammates that go hard day in and day out. I have to also thank my coaches for working us hard for us to be able to have the success we’ve had so far this season.”
The three-time MACJC Women’s Player of the Week recipient is eligible for National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Women’s National Player of the Week honors – an award she earned in November.
“We’re really excited for Jayla and the rest of the team,” said ICC women’s head coach Nanci Gray. “Anytime your team gets honors like this it shows the caliber of kids we have playing here, the high level of success our players are producing while having a good time playing basketball at ICC.”
The North Division leading Lady Indians will be back in action Thursday night when they travel to Coahoma Community College. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 with the Indians are scheduled to follow at 8:00 p.m.
