DAVIDSON, N.C. — Jasmine Jenkins has been named assistant coach of the Davidson women’s basketball program, head coach Gayle Fulks announced Monday. 

A four-year player and 2016 graduate of Vanderbilt University, Jenkins comes to Davidson with a wealth of knowledge and experience from recruiting and competing in a high-academic setting. Most recently, she served for two years as an assistant coach at Pomona-Pitzer, an NCAA Division III member institution, where she helped lead the Sagehens to a 15-11 record in 2019-20, including a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference semifinal appearance.  

“We are extremely excited to add Jasmine to our staff,” Fulks said. “Her experience in playing and coaching at high academic institutions will provide great value and insight to our players, program and community. Jasmine lights up a room and brings an elite level of energy to everything she does. She will be a great mentor to our players and contribute tremendously to their development both on the court and off.” 

“I can’t begin to fathom the gravity of this opportunity to be a Wildcat,” Jenkins said. “It’s been a long road in coaching to get here, so my gratitude is immeasurable. Davidson touts and attracts elite people first, then scholars and athletes second. That is a culture that I look forward to being a part of.” 

Prior to her stint at Pomona-Pitzer, Jenkins was a graduate assistant coach at Waynesburg University for one season, aiding in the development of three All-Conference student-athletes during the 2018-19 campaign.

A native of Gainesville, Ga., Jenkins played in 119 games during her career as a Commodore, earning SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition her senior year while finishing third on the team in assists and fifth in steals per game. In her final season, she scored a career-high 24 points, off 9-of-12 shooting, against Mississippi Valley State.
