Jasmine Smith (Bellarmine-Jefferson High, 2012) freshman forward, San Jose State women's basketball: Despite coming off the bench in all 10 of the Spartans' games this season, Smith is making the most of her opportunities.
In fact, she is the team's fourth-leading scorer as a reserve.
Smith, an all-state player at Bell-Jeff, is averaging 12.4 points a game off the bench. In addition, she averages nine rebounds a contest. With five double-doubles in the last eight games, Smith ranks 26th in the nation in that category and leads the Mountain West Conference.
The sophomore has helped San Jose State to a 5-5 record, all in nonconference games.
In the Spartans' last game Wednesday afternoon, a 95-81 road win against Georgia State, Smith tallied six points, six rebounds, two steals and one block.
Next on the schedule for San Jose State is a home game Saturday against University of Missouri-Kansas City.
