San Jose's Augustine Granted 5th Year Eligibility.

SJSU's Augustine was second on the team last season in scoring at 13.8 points per game and in rebounding at 7.7 rebounds per game. She led the team in scoring in WAC games at 15.2 points per game. Augustine solidifies an already strong team.

San Jose, CA--— San Jose State forward Lamisha Augustine, a 2005 first team All-Western Athletic Conference selection, has been granted a fifth year of eligibility to play women's basketball as announced by the NCAA.

Augustine, who has completed her degree requirements in sociology and is pursuing another degree in criminal justice, received a fifth-year extension waiver from the NCAA Membership Services/Reinstatement staff. She received the waiver in part because of a knee injury suffered during her first season of play, 2001-02.

"I am very excited for Lamisha to say the least," said San Jose State head coach Janice Richard. "She had a breakout year for us last year. I knew when we recruited her that she was capable of playing at that level. We are excited that one of our leaders is coming back to the team."

Augustine was second on the team last season in scoring at 13.8 points per game and in rebounding at 7.7 rebounds per game. She led the team in scoring in WAC games only at 15.2 points per game. Augustine added 23 blocked shots and 55 steals in 30 games played.

"I am really excited to get this year back," said Augustine. "I am looking forward to coming back and helping the San Jose State women's basketball team win a Western Athletic Conference championship."
