Marshall women's basketball signs two

May. 14, 2013 @ 11:55 PM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall Thundering Herd women's basketball coach Matt Daniel signed two more players, putting the recruiting class to 10 members.

High school player Enjonae Chambers from Conway, Ark., and transfer Ashley Lambert from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County joined the Herd in the last week.

Chambers is a 5-foot-7 guard from Conway High West where she scored 1,346 points for the Lady Cats in three seasons, was an all-state tournament selection two times and made the all-conference team three times.

As a senior she averaged 24 points, seven rebounds, three steals, three blocks and two assists per game.

"We are excited to have Enjonae added to our roster," Daniel said. "She is known as a sharpshooter and we can definitely add her to our versatile roster. She initially committed to NCAA tournament team Tulsa, but we are glad to have her be a part of our basketball family."

Lambert is from Fredericksburg, Va., and played two seasons for the UMBC Retrievers of the America East Conference.

The 5-11 Lambert averaged 6.7 points and 3.0 rebounds last season.

"Ashley's approach has been professional through the entire process," Daniel said. "Even though she will have to sit out for her transfer year, her approach can have a huge impact to our young team. On the floor, she is a scorer that has a lot of mid-range in her game. I'm excited to have her be a part of our family."

Lambert was the 2011 Commonwealth District MVP after averaging 18.1 points as a senior at Riverbend High School in Fredericksburg.

Marshall's other recruits are Kiana Evans from Huntington High, McKenzie Akers, Chelsy Romero, Maya Singleton, Jonelle Britt, Leah Scott, Aja Sorrells and Andrea Johnson.
