Lady hooper Jewett-Giles to transfer from USM

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - According to a report by the Fort Myers News-Press, University of Southern Mississippi guard Keri Jewett-Giles will transfer to Florida Gulf Coast University in the summer.

This probably comes as a surprise for those on the outside of the Lady Eagles program. The sophomore is coming off a season that saw her put up nine points per game, good for third on the squad behind Brittany Dinkins (18.4) and Jayla King (10.3). She was primed for an even bigger role with fellow guard Dinkins having just finished her USM career.

Jewett-Giles is a native of Fort Myers, so it will be a homecoming for her.

The Lady Eagles finished the season at 23-11 overall, losing to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in the opening round of the WNIT.
