Brionna Jones and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough to have jerseys honored on Senior Day

New, 9 comments

Their four years of stellar play will be celebrated on Feb. 26.

Maryland women’s basketball seniors Brionna Jones and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough will see their jerseys lifted to the rafters during Senior Day on Feb. 26, the team announced Tuesday.

Jones and Walker-Kimbrough will be the 10th and 11th players to have their jerseys honored, bringing the total to eight under current head coach Brenda Frese.

The duo have gone 114-15 in College Park, and have won two Big Ten regular season and tournament titles and reached two Final Fours. With a deep tournament run, Jones and Walker-Kimbrough could go down as the winningest players in program history, as they need 13 more wins to break the Class of 2009’s record of 126.

That class, led by Marissa Coleman and Kristi Toliver, helped the Terps win their first ever national championship. Both Coleman and Toliver have their jerseys hanging in the rafters.

Both players are two-time All-Big Ten selections, and Walker-Kimbrough was All-America Honorable mention last season. Walker-Kimbrough currently ranks sixth in program history with 1,870 points, and should become the fifth player to reach 2,000 before the end of the season. She also currently holds the record for highest three-point field goal percentage, with a 45-percent success rate from behind the arc.

Jones is ninth in program history with 1,657 career points, and became the fifth Maryland player to reach 1,000 rebounds in an 89-83 win over Penn State earlier this season. In that game, she also scored 42 points, tying Coleman’s program record for most points in a game.

The Terps continue Big Ten play this week with games at Purdue on Thursday and Indiana on Sunday.
