Ole Miss women’s basketball head coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin announced the addition of Sherranda Reddick as a graduate manager on Friday.
Reddick started all four years for coach Yo at Jacksonville where she became all-time leading scorer and a monumental part of the turnaround program.
“When I started in this profession, I knew I always wanted to provide people opportunities that were given to me,” McPhee-McCuin said. “Coaching is not a job for me, it is my ministry. The goal is to win championships here, and everyone that is a part of this program knows that. So when my graduate assistant position opened up this year, there was no doubt in my mind that Sherranda Reddick was the perfect fit.
“She won a championship with me and will be a huge asset with our program here at Ole Miss. Sherranda will be involved in every aspect of our program, and the plan is to prepare her for opportunities after she’s done obtaining her master’s degree.”
A native of Jacksonville and a graduate of Ribault High School, Reddick notched a JU record of 1,727 points throughout her career (13.9 PPG), starting in 113 of 124 career games for the Dolphins. Reddick was the main catalyst for Jacksonville during McPhee-McCuin’s first four years from 2014-17, seeing the program go from sub-.500 records to the first NCAA Tournament berth in school history in 2016 and a subsequent WNIT trip in 2017. During those final two seasons of postseason play, Reddick did not miss a single game, starting all 55 contests and averaging 17.2 PPG in that span.
During her time on the court, she became a two-time First-Team Atlantic Sun selection and a member of the ASUN All-Freshman Team in 2014. She earned her bachelor’s in sociology in 2017 from Jacksonville University.
