Angel Jackson finds new home overseas after brief WNBA stint

Angel Jackson finds new home overseas after brief WNBA stint


Angel Jackson’s professional basketball journey is not over yet.

The 2023-24 SWAC women’s basketball defensive player of the year has signed a contract to play with Faenza Basket Project Lions in Italy.

Jackson, who helped the Lady Tigers to their third SWAC tournament championship and NCAA tournament appearance in four seasons, was drafted 36th overall by the defending WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces in this year’s WNBA draft.

But she was the last player cut before the regular season began.

Jackson, a 6-foot-6 center who transferred from USC in 2021, averaged 10 points, 6.8 rebounds and a conference-leading 2.9 blocks per game for JSU this past season.

She scored 13 points and blocked two shots in the Tigers’ 86-64 loss to UConn in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
