Former IU women’s standouts McGhee, Sinclair continuing their careers

Around this area, Jasmine McGhee could have built her entire resume on her game-winning shot to beat Purdue two seasons ago.

Now, the former Indiana guard is adding to that resume with a gig within the IU system.

McGhee has signed on to become an assistant coach at IU Kokomo, where the women’s basketball program will begin its inaugural season on Nov. 4. McGhee was a two-year player for the Hoosiers after transferring from Vincennes, averaging 12.7 points between her junior and senior seasons. After graduating in the spring of 2013, McGhee spent the last year coaching teens in the Upward Basketball League. She’s also pursuing a master’s degree in public management at the Kokomo campus.

But it was her buzzer beater to lift Indiana over No. 22 Purdue during the 2012-13 season that earned McGhee ownership of one of the greatest recent moments for Indiana women’s basketball.

McGhee’s classmate, Aulani Sinclair, is also active in the game. Sinclair recently began playing in Spain.
