Former JMU star Smalls signs with pro team in Italy
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Former James Madison University women’s basketball player Kamiah Smalls has signed with a professional team in Italy.
Smalls has signed with USE Basket Rosa Scotti, a team in the Serie A1 Women’s league. She was selected by the Indiana Fever in the WNBA Draft earlier this year but was released before ever playing in a game for the franchise.
“I’m thanking God for all these blessings,” Smalls said in a press release from JMU Monday. “I’m thanking my family, friends and every community that has given me unconditional support. Signing a contract to make one of the best places in Italy my new home was one of the most nerve wrecking/exciting moments of my life!”
Smalls was the 2019-2020 CAA Player of the Year and ranks fourth all-time in scoring with 1,888 points for the Dukes.
