The Columbus State women's basketball program picked up a verbal commitment over the weekend from Seminole County star Carrie Washington, the Lady Indians' 5-foot-10 forward who averaged 20 points a game this season.

"I had some other schools after me, but there were a lot of advantages to going to Columbus," Washington said. "Namely, staying close to home."

The Lady Cougars will also be obtaining the services of Randolph-Clay's Asha Alexander, who told The Herald on Wednesday she hasn't verbally committed yet, but is going to.

"I like it there,'' said Alexander, who was the second-leading scorer this season for the Lady Red Devils. "It's close to home and they have seven seniors, so I will get playing time. I have told them yet, but I'm going there.''
