“Gabby was a great addition to our roster this offseason,” SMCC head coach Brent Harris said. “She was a constant offensive threat for us this year and made winning plays for us down the stretch.”


Joining bunch is fellow third-year player McGee who has been a force for the Lady Bears since the 2019-20 season. This season she led the team in scoring with 11.9 points per game while averaging the second-most minutes per game on the team (30.4). She was also second on the team in rebounding (5.9 per game).


“Shylia has been a go-to player for three years for the Lady Bears,” Coach Harris said. “Whether it’s scoring, rebounding or by taking charges, Shylia always finds a way to help us be successful.”
