Ajanaku departs women’s basketball program
Memphis native played in 38 games during three-year careerJune 20, 2012 · Athletic Communications
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee head women’s basketball coach Rick Insell has announced Jamila Ajanaku will not return to the program for her senior season in 2012-13 due to family reasons.
“We wish Mimi the best with her future plans,” Insell said. “She is returning to Memphis to help out with some family health issues and this was the right move for her at this time. We will miss having her as a part of our program.”
Ajanaku played in 38 games during her three-year Blue Raider career, including a pair of starts this past season when she averaged a career-best 1.3 ppg. She was on the floor for a career-high 20 minutes at James Madison in her first collegiate start.
The Memphis, Tenn., native opened the campaign with five points and three rebounds versus UNC Wilmington in the Lady Lion Classic and also scored on her only field goal attempt at Vanderbilt in the NCAA Tournament.
