Georgia Southern University head women’s basketball coach Rusty Cram has announced the addition of Janay Wilson to the 2009-10 Georgia Southern women’s basketball roster.

Wilson is a 5-foot-8 guard from Warner Robins.

Wilson joins the team as a transfer from Savannah College of Art and Design. In her freshman season, she was named freshman player of the year, second team all-conference for the Florida Sun Conference and was the Bees’ defensive player of the year. In addition, Wilson set SCAD’s single-season steals record with 116. After finishing the 2008-09 season averaging 11.5 points and 7.1 rebounds, Wilson was named first-team all-Sun Conference, defensive player of the year and the recipient of the Champion of Character Award, an award based on academics and the five core values — respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship.

“Janay is a very quick one-two guard that will bring a great deal of defense to the team. She is a great penetrator and we’re excited about having her. She will be a great addition to the club,” Cram said.
