Mosley, Schomer sign to play women's basketball at USD
South Dakota head women's basketball coach Chad Lavin has announced that Jasmine Mosley of Bellevue, NE, and Kendra Schomer of Madison, NE, have both signed national letters of intent to play basketball and enroll at The University of South Dakota next fall.

With the signing of Mosley and Schomer, the USD women's basketball program now has a 2005-06 signing class of three, including Kara Iverson of Yankton, who signed with the Coyotes last fall during the early signing period.

Mosley, a heavily recruited basketball and track and field student-athlete from Bellevue East High, helped lead her high school team to the state Class A basketball title in Nebraska in 2006 with a 55-45 win over Lincoln Northeast.

A 5'10 forward, Mosley, who averaged 12.0 points, nine rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game, played nearly every position for Coach Scott Jensen's squad. In the finals, she scored 13 points and grabbed seven rebounds and was named to the Class A All Tournament team. She played point guard, forward and post for Jensen's Bellevue East team.

Mosley, who will also participate on USD women's track and field team, won the shot put title at the Dan Lennon Meet at USD this spring. She has already broken several outdoor school and meet marks in the shot put and discus this spring.

Mosley was named first-team Class A All-State in basketball as a senior. She was also selected first-team All-Metro in Omaha, NE.

Schomer, a 5'9 guard/forward, led Madison High to a 14-9 record for head coach Jack Mahler. As a senior, she scored 280 points, averaging 12.2 per contest. She also secured 142 rebounds or 6.2 per game and had 105 assists or 4.6 assists per game. Schomer, who averaged 2.2 steals per game, hit 72.4 percent from the free throw line (71-of-98). She made 37.6 percent of her field goal attempts.

Named first-team Mid-State All-Conference, Schomer was a first-team Class C Elite Eight selection by the Norfolk Daily News. In addition, she was honorable mention all-state as selected by the Omaha World-Herald and the Lincoln Journal-Star.

"We are excited that both Jasmine and Kendra have joined the Coyote basketball program. Jasmine is an exceptionally talented student-athlete who plays multiple positions. She has point guard-type ball-handling skills and can score on the block. Kendra is one of the best rebounding guards in Nebraska and has the ability to play more than one position. Both Jasmine and Kendra are outstanding students who fit well into our program," said Lavin.

Iverson, a 6'1 forward, was just named the All-Class Shootout MVP in South Dakota after scoring 14 points and grabbing four rebounds.

She helped lead Yankton High to the state tournament two straight seasons.
