The Troy Trojans women’s basketball team added a top junior college transfer to their 2022 recruiting class on Tuesday with the addition of Jamila Nansikombi-Gunter.

Gunter comes to Troy after starring for Moberly Community College in Missouri for the past two seasons and helping guide the Lady Greyhounds to a spot in the 2022 NJCAA Tournament this past season.

“Jamila ‘Zama’ Nansikombi-Gunter is a fantastic addition to our roster,” Troy coach Chanda Rigby said. “She is fast and forceful moving towards the basket on offense and her athleticism and intensity on defense causes problems for opponents. We are thrilled to have her.”
