CARBONDALE, Ill. – Southern Illinois University women’s basketball head coach Kelly Bond-White announced on Wednesday that the program has signed transfer guard Se’Quoia Allmond. A Memphis, Tenn. native, Allmond will be a junior at SIU in 2023-24 after playing the last two seasons at Loyola Marymount.

Allmond was rated a four-star point guard coming out of high school and the No. 70 women’s college basketball prospect in the country according to ESPN. She held offers from Kentucky, Ole Miss and Kansas before committing to Jackson State and becoming the first top-100 player in the 2021 class to pick an HBCU.

“One of our main priorities for the 2023-24 season was adding depth to an already dynamic backcourt,” Bond-White said. “Se’Quoia truly fits the bill. As one of the best players nationally in the 2021 class, ‘Quoia’ is a three-level threat, with a great feel for the game. Her change of pace and ability to create space keeps defenses off balance. She can lock up on the perimeter and loves the up-tempo game.”

“We really did our homework, and her coaches applauded her coach-ability, IQ, being a complete student, and just being a great teammate,” Bond-White said.

Allmond averaged a double-double (16 points, 10 assists) at perennial powerhouse Whitehaven High School in South Memphis, Tenn. She was a three time all-league and all-city player and was named all-state as a junior.

“I chose SIU because I wanted to have a great college experience and be in an environment where I could succeed both on and off the court,” Allmond said.

The Salukis are expected to return four starters and 11 players from last year’s team, including four of the top five scorers.
