Ifeoma Mbue '18 signs to Southwestern University

Ifeoma Mbue '18 signed her letter of intent to play basketball for Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas amid cheers from family, coaches, and classmates. "Being able to sign to play collegiate basketball has been a dream of mine since 8th grade. Reaching this milestone has not always been easy but all the long hours in the gym and the injuries I have been through have all been worth it. This dream has become true because of the unending support from my team, parents, and high school and AAU coaches."
