Northwest Mississippi Community College

SENATOBIA – Sophomore forward Sharwyn McGee of Northwest Community College has signed a national letter of intent to play for head coach Bobby Champagne and the University of North Alabama his final two seasons.

"The coaches did an outstanding job of recruiting Sharwyn," Northwest head basketball coach Bubba Skelton said. "Eddie McCarter did a great job of selling the Lion program and how Sharwyn would make an impact for them. UNA has a solid program and plays in a very competitive conference."

The Raleigh, N.C., product had a solid two-year career for the Rangers, averaging 12.4 points and 7.6 rebounds-per-game with 12 double-doubles while shooting 52 percent. He added 64 blocks, 26 assists and 19 steals.

As a sophomore, McGee had a team-best eight double-doubles while averaging 13.4 points and 8.7 rebounds-per-game, also both team highs. He shot 53 percent from the floor and 67 percent from the charity stripe, adding a team-high 41 blocks, 16 assists and two steals in 21 starts.

McGee was a 2015 Second Team All-MACJC selection and participant in the MACJC All-Star Game.

"Sharwyn was a very consistent player for us both seasons," Skelton continued. "You knew you were going to get great effort every day from him. He was a workhorse for us. I have no doubt that he will be an impact player for UNA and is going to be a player that the people in Florence are going to love to watch."

UNA is an NCAA Division II member and competes in the Gulf South Conference (GSC).

FULTON, MS – Freshman Courtney Roberts has been voted Week 11’s MACJC Player of the Week when the league announced its winners on Tuesday.

Roberts (Hatley) went 11-for-18 with 14 RBI, 4 runs, 2 doubles, 3 triples, 1 homerun and stole 2 bases in five games last week to help lead the Lady Indians to victories over East Mississippi Community College and Jackson State Community College (TN).

In game one against East Mississippi Tuesday, Roberts went 2-for-4 driving in one run and stealing one base, before erupting in game two with a 3-for-4, 5 RBI, 2 triple, 1 homerun performance. Roberts’ offensive explosion propelled the Lady Indians to the sweep over the MACJC North Division Lady Lions.

Less than 24 hours after her 5 RBI performance in Scooba, Roberts picked up 5 more RBIs in game one against Jackson State (TN) on Wednesday with another 3-for-4 outing highlighted by a two run scoring double in the fourth. In game two, Roberts ripped her third triples of the week, driving in 1 run while going 2-for-4 at the plate.

On Thursday, the Lady Indians wrapped up the week with a makeup game against East Mississippi. The Lady Lions held Roberts to only one hit in the contest, but that was a run scoring double to help the Lady Indians complete the 8-0 run-rule victory. Roberts also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the game.

Roberts earned Co-Player of the Week earlier this season in week one.

Roberts has been nominated for the NJCAA National Player of the Week honors to be announced later this week.
