SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento State women's basketball head coach
Craighead will add guards Ashlyn Crenshaw (Stockton, Calif.) and Gigi Hascheff (Reno, Nev.) plus forward Hallie Gennett (Spokane, Wash.) to next year's roster.
"In recruiting the 2013 class we were looking for very specific qualities and we believe we found just what we were looking for," Craighead said. "All three of our recruits are great people, competitors and are enthusiastic about joining our Hornet family. Recruiting is a never ending part of our job and we will continue to look for quality student-athletes that can help our program grow."
ASHLYN CRENSHAW (STOCKTON, CALIF./LINCOLN HS)
A 5-foot-8 guard from Stockton, Calif...played for head coach Diane Weise at Lincoln HS during her junior season, when she averaged 13.6 points, 3.7 assists, three rebounds and 2.7 steals per game...shot 45 percent from the field...scored 30 percent of her teams' points...led the Trojans to a 22-6 record and a San Joaquin Athletic Association league title before losing the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Div. I section playoffs...played AAU ball for the Stockton Mustangs.
"Ashlyn is a tenacious defender who can fly around on the court and cause problems for anyone she guards," Craighead said. "Offensively she will play on wing for us and she will add to our speed and athleticism at that position. She has tremendous potential and I am anxious to work with her."
HALLIE GENNETT (SPOKANE, WASH./POST FALLS (IDAHO) HS)
A 5-foot-11 trail post from Spokane, Wash....played for head coach Mark Stinson at University HS in Spokane for three seasons before transferring to Post Falls HS in Post Falls, Idaho for her upcoming senior season...was a first team all-Greater Spokane League selection after her junior campaign where she averaged a team-high 14.5 points...helped the Titans to the semifinals of the 3A state tournament...posted 13 points and 13 rebounds in University's quarterfinals win over Seattle Prep...played AAU ball for the Spokane Stars.
"Hallie is a true trail post with a shooter's mentality," Craighead said. "She will stretch the defense as a true three-point threat. Hallie also has the perimeter skills of a guard so she will blend into our offense well. She was key in this class as we lost a shooting trail post last year and will again this season."
GIGI HASCHEFF (RENO, NEV./RENO HS)
A 5-foot-7 guard from Reno HS where she played for head coach Shane Foster....averaged 11.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.4 steals per game as a junior...helped the Huskies to a 27-6 overall record and 14-2 Northern - High Desert League mark last year...pushed Reno into the 4A Nevada State Championship game before falling to Reed HS, 56-51...played AAU ball with the Nevada Basketball Academy.
"Gigi will play the shooting guard position for us," Craighead said. "To play that position in this style of offense you have to always want to pull the trigger. We needed to add depth to that position as will be a senior next season, and Gigi definitely fits that mold." has announced the signing of three student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for her 2012-13 class.
