Continue your basketball career into college
January 8, 2009By iHigh Staff of New York
The University of the Virgin Islands is currently looking to recruit five women’s basketball student-athletes. UVI is an accredited U.S. University with excellent academic programs located in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands with a great campus that includes a beautiful beach and an excellent arena (Duke, UConn, Notre Dame, Michigan and most of the major DI teams have played in the arena during the Paradise Jam Basketball Tournament).
UVI women’s team plays at a low DIII level - and our team made the playoffs last year. If a girl was an average player on your team she would probably be a very good player in our league. Our 81 year old league (LAI) is made up of twenty Universities in Puerto Rico (all accredited U.S. Universities) - and it is an excellent league. Our league championship game is televised in Puerto Rico and has about 6,000 in attendance.
This is an excellent situation for a girl that loves basketball and wants the experience of playing college basketball - with the added experience of playing in various parts of the Caribbean. We have had a number of girls from the states come down who have had a great experience - including many who planned to try it for a year and decided to stay and complete their education at UVI.
The five in-state waivers were we granted recently allow us to grant in-state to these students - costing about $1,900 per semester - plus room and board which is about $3,000. We have very nice dorms and cafeteria on-campus.
