FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Jimmy Dykes and the University of Arkansas women’s basketball program added another junior college All-American to the 2015-16 roster with the addition of Devin Cosper, the team announced today.
Cosper, a Coffeyville, Kan., native, was the only freshman selected to the Junior College First-Team All-America team this spring. The 5-10 guard will have three seasons of eligibility remaining. Cosper joins other JUCO All-Americans Angelica de Paulo and Alecia Cooley who signed last week and brings the total number of newcomers to nine for the Razorbacks.
As a freshman at Coffeyville Community College, Cosper averaged 20.0 points per game, shot 52.4 percent from the floor and averaged 4.8 rebounds per game for the Red Ravens. Cosper led the Jayhawk Conference in scoring in her first season and was fifth in field goal percentage.
Cosper helped the Red Ravens to a 26-10 overall record and a trip to the NJCAA National Tournament. She scored 30 points in the first round win over Northeastern (Colo.), in early March.
Cosper is just the third Raven in program history to earn first-team All-America honors. She also earned Jayhawk East Most Valuable Player, Freshman of the Year and Jayhawk Conference First-Team honors.
Jimmy Dykes says:
Devin has the potential to impact our team right away. She is a tremendous athlete and was the state champion in the 100 meters in high school. We are thrilled that she has decided to join our program.
