Locked on Women’s Basketball: Kiki Jefferson is a superstar, WNBA prospect for James Madison
Howard and Kiki Jefferson discuss the impact of Jefferson's parents on her as a player and a person — what Lancaster means to her
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal who is joined by the great and versatile Kiki Jefferson of James Madison. The two discuss the impact of Jefferson’s parents on her as a player and a person and what Lancaster means to her.
Kiki Jefferson talks about her dreams of playing professional basketball:
“Well, I think as a kid, that’s everybody’s dream. My parents instilled in me that whatever you put your mind to could happen. So I would say recently, it’s not only because it’s crunch time, but it’s more visible that I could play in the WNBA coming next year or in the future. So it’s just what I believe.”

Kiki Jefferson talks about coming to JMU and why she chose this program:
“As far as coming to JMU, I wasn’t one of those types of players or people to look like, Hey, this is what JMU has. I just knew I wanted to go to a school with the right fit and then it’s like, Hey, I’m here for a reason. And I’m going to come here and work hard and I know coach Sean O’Regan, is like whatever work you put in, you’ll get out, or you’ll get the outcome that you want. So I just came here really with an open mind and whatever happens happens.”
