Brittanny Johnson, Head Women's Basketball Coach at Kennedy-King College, to Assist at USA Basketball Camp
October 16, 2014

CHICAGO – Brittanny Johnson, head coach of the Kennedy-King College women’s basketball team, has been selected to serve as an assistant at USA Basketball’s inaugural Girls Regional Skills Development Camp from Oct. 17-19 at the Romeoville Athletic and Event Center in Romeoville, Ill.

Johnson is one of five Chicago-area coaches – and the lone from the community college level – who was chosen by USA Basketball to assist at the camp as a court coach.

“This camp is a great opportunity for players of any level to improve their skills and to learn from USA Basketball National Team caliber coaches and an outstanding group of five court coaches from the area,” said Carol Callan, the USA Basketball Women’s National Team Director.

The camp, open to girls between eighth and 12th grade, will consist of fundamentals training, scrimmages and a three-on-three tournament.  There will also be educational sessions that will feature discussions on achieving maximum performance, nutrition, hydration and diagraming plays.

The 2014-15 season will be Johnson’s second at Kennedy-King.  In her inaugural campaign last year, Johnson led the Statesmen to a 20-7 finish, which marked the program’s best since it was reinstated in 1996-97, and a runner-up finish at the Region IV Tournament.

Antania Hayes selected to NJCAA All-America Team
April 13, 2014

CHICAGO – Among Antania Hayes’ accomplishments during her freshman season with the Kennedy-College women’s basketball team in 2013-14 were ranking first nationally in NJCAA Division I in rebounding and third in scoring, being the top vote-getter on the NJCAA All-Region IV Team and claiming the Region IV Player of the Week honor four times and the NJCAA Player of the Week award once.

Hayes, however, received her biggest accolade April 10 when she was selected as an NJCAA second team All-American.  In doing so, she becomes the third All-American in team history, joining April Hargrow (2011-12) and Naelonda Zamudio (2005-06), who were both honorable mention picks.

Hayes, a 6-foot, 1-inch forward, averaged 26.2 points, 19.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 steals per game for the Lady Statesmen, who concluded the year with a 20-7 record and a runner-up finish in the Region IV Tournament.  Hayes published a double-double in all 22 of her appearances; had game highs of 37 points, 27 rebounds, six assists, four steals and three blocks; totaled at least 18 points and 11 rebounds in every game; and scored 30 or more points in seven outings.

Led by Hayes, Kennedy-King, which had three victories in 2012-13, was able to produce its best record since the school reinstated the program in the 1996-97 season.

"Antania is one of the most gifted basketball players I have had the pleasure of working with.  In just one season, she has elevated our program to the national level,” said Kennedy-King’s first-year head coach Brittanny Johnson.  “I am so proud of Antania’s accomplishments - both on and off the court.  She is very deserving of this honor."

A graduate of Martin Luther King High School in Detroit, Hayes is enrolled in Kennedy-King’s General Studies Program and is pursuing an associate degree.  She hopes to major in kinesiology at a four-year college.
