This week, former Troy Trojan Ja’Mia Hollings signed a professional basketball contract with the ASA Sceaux in France.

Hollings is coming off a senior season that saw the 6-foot-2-inch forward earn All-Sun Belt Conference honors as she led the conference in rebounds and score the sixth most points in a single season in Troy Division I history. She averaged 15.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks per game this year.

“(Hollings) is continuing to make her dreams come true,” Troy head coach Chanda Rigby said. “She told me from day one that she wanted to earn her college degree, be an all-conference D-I player and play professionally overseas. She went to work and stayed determined to reach all of her goals. Signing this pro contract means she accomplished everything she set out to do. My staff and I are so proud of her and happy for her.”
