Phenicia Howard

Lady Saints Basketball Team Signs Phenicia Howard

The Shawnee Community College Saints Women's Basketball team signs guard Phenicia Howard to a National Letter of Intent for the 2015-2016 team. Phenicia just graduated high school from Munford High School is Munford, TN.  She is the daughter of Danny and Michell Howard.

Phenicia had a very successful high school career at Munford.  Phenicia averaged 9.7ppg, 2apg, 3 rpg, and 2 spg for her senior year.  She played on a high-level high school team at Munford that reached Sub-State in 2013 and Regionals the past two seasons.  Phenicia was named 2013-14 TSSAA District 13AAA Regular Season All District Team, 14-15 TSSAA District 13AAA Regular Season All District Team, and 2014-15 TSSAA District 13AAA All District Tournament Team.  She was also selected to the prestigious Commercial Appeal Best of the Preps All Memphis Area Team that selected the top players from the Memphis area. 

Phenicia's high school coach Steve Poindexter, said, " She went from a girl that nobody really knew who she was, but as time went along she kept working and working. Her confidence grew. About the time she was a senior she was on everybody's shouting report. Everybody knew who she was. She obviously is a kid willing to do the little things. She sacrifices her body and is willing to slam her body to the floor. She's always willing to do whatever it takes, not only in a game. She does that in practice as well. 

"She's just a high-character kid. She's the type of kid you root for. You want to see them be successful. She made the decision she wanted to play college basketball. She worked hard and earned it. She's willing to earn her success. I think her strength is she brings energy to wherever she's at. She brought energy to our team and she'll bring energy to their team."

New women's basketball coach, Luke Scheidecker, said,  "We are getting a great girl and basketball player in Phenicia.  What stood out to me about Phenicia is her work ethic and desire to excel on the court and in the classroom.  She has been instilled hard-work by her parents and I have no doubt that hard work will translate to success at Shawnee."
