"I really enjoyed the environment and the teammates, and they made me feel at home, and I feel like I fit in there," Sherrod said. "I just wanted to play basketball, period. I honestly didn't care where I was. I just wanted to play and they made me feel at home."

Sherrod, who plans to major in sports management, said she wants to prove her worth on the court and hopes to take her basketball abilities even further.

"I just want to get better and get exposure and hopefully get to go to the next level," Sherrod said. "People think that just because you're JUCO you can't achieve your goals. I want to prove to them that you can do what you want with your life.”
