Women's Basketball - Mon, May. 3, 2010
Georgetown College women's basketball coach Susan Johnson recently signed another 2010-2011 Tiger in 5-foot-9 guard Lizza Jonas. She is seen below middle with Johnson on the right and high school coach Justin Cheatham on the left.The former Tates Creek High School standout averaged 15 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, and five steals per game her senior year.

She tallied 1,148 points as a Commodore, but it isn't just her stats that attracted GC's veteran coach to Jonas.

"She's the type of player who will take a charge or dive for a loose ball - things that win games but don't show up in the stats," Johnson said.

In her four years, the guard has been highly recognized and in her senior year alone was District All-Tournament, All-Region, Region All-Tournament, Scholastic Ball Report Scholar Athlete, and First Team All-City.

She has five times been honored as the Most Valuable Player - twice the MLK Classic game MVP, Cardinal Clash game MVP, Berea Holiday Classic tournament MVP, and Mercer Holiday Classic game MVP.

"We are thrilled to have Lizza joining our team next season," Johnson said. "She'll fit our style with her ability to take the ball to the hole to finish, and she's an outstanding rebounder for her size.
"She will also bring a number of intangibles to our team - everyone has bragged about her tremendous work-ethic and desire to improve her game."
