Sutherland signs with Eastern Wyoming (Basketball)

May 3, 2010

Jubliee Sutherland will take her game where no other Glennallen basketball player has gone.

The 5-foot-6 all-state guard bound for Eastern Wyoming College is the first player in school history to sign a National Letter of Intent to play basketball, said her coach Kirk Howard.

Eastern Wyoming College is a two-year NJCAA school in Torrington. She plans to move on to a four-year university, where she wants to major in Exercise Science and continue playing ball.

She is a 4.0 student and is her class Valedictorian.

“That’s what I’m most proud of,” Howard told me.

Sutherland averaged 22.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.7 steals and 4.4 assists per game for Class 3A Glennallen, helping her earn first-team all-state honors and Aurora Conference MVP.

More importantly, she led Glennallen to back-to-back appearances in the ASAA state tournament.

“It’s the first time since the late 1960’s, when her mom’s teams did it,” Howard said.

Sutherland scored 1,686 points in her high school career, highlighted by a total of 309 3-pointers.

“My assessment of her: loves the game, dedicated, tough, killer instinct, great shooter, extremely coachable, wants to be the best she can be,” Howard said. “She never missed a practice in her high school career.”
