Posted on May 22, 2016 8:46 PM

Russellville Lady Panther DavonYa Bryant has signed to play basketball with Lindsey Wilson College beginning in the fall. 

DavonYa led the 2015-16 Lady Panthers to one of their best seasons. The Lady Panthers finished the season with a 13-13 record. The 5'5'' guard was second on the team in points per game (15.5) and rebounds (6.0) and led the team in 3-point percentage at 42 percent. Bryant was also selected to the 13th District All Season and All Tournament team as well as being voted as the 13th District Most Outstanding Player of the Year. 

"We are happy to now call DavonYa a Blue Raider! We are very excited that she chose to be a part of our basketball program here at Lindsey Wilson College," Assistant Coach Steve Beck says.

"We are very proud of DavonYa and excited about her choice to continue her basketball career at Lindsey Wilson College. I can't think of anyone more deserving of this opportunity than DavonYa. She has broken the mold for our basketball program and has set the tone that hard work pays off and in due time you will be able to reap the benefits of putting in the time and effort in becoming a great player,” says Lady Panther coach Calvin Head.

“We are definitely going to miss her leadership and her toughness that she brought to our team on a daily basis. We are all looking forward to being able to watch her play at the next level."
