Coffee, Coley & TV

 The biggest weeps over senior guard Jerica Coley graduating FIU might not be heard in the women's basketball offices, but the marketing and media relations offices. They'll be crying like it's the end of Love Story. For those arms of FIU media, Coley's the gift that never stops giving, the cornucopia of FIU goodness.

This week, it's being named a Capital One Academic All-District athlete by College Sports Information Directors of America. This district covers colleges in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Coley carries a 3.41 GPA and majors in dietetics and nutrition.

Coley and the entire women's basketball team will be signing autographs Saturday after FIU faces FAU at 6 p.m. on National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Female FIU employees with their FIU card get in free. Girls under 12 receive a free t-shirt.


The Apr. 5 FIU vs. FAU softball game will be televised on Fox Sports Network as will the May 3 FIU at East Carolina baseball game. Conference USA announced its spring television schedule today.

We are all going to miss Jerica Coley when she graduates. Its obvious how great she is on the basketball court, but its especially great to see her excel in the classroom. Such a great example for the rest of our student athletes. I'm definitely going to be singing that Bill Withers song when she leaves. Okay maybe I'm being a bit too dramatic, and maybe the song is way too depressing for the situation (still a great song though). I wish Jerica the very best!!!

She is a bright beacon, all right. Just a darned shame that she couldn't have Davydova playing alongside her this year. They might have made a little post-season noise.
