Girls Basketball: Southeast Raleigh vs Jordan (February 26, 2014

Elizabeth "Lizz" Layne of Jordan High has received an offer from UNC-Wilmington, according to Falcon women's basketball coach Ty Cox. The offer is Layne's first from a Division 1 school.

A rising sophomore, Layne averaged ten points per game and seven rebounds per game during her freshman year, finishing second on the team in both statistical categories. The 6-foot-1 forward was a PAC-6 All-Conference selection.

In May, Layne made it to the third day of the USA Basketball 17U National Team Trials in Colorado, surviving two cuts and becoming one of the final 70 remaining players from a group that began at 145.

Several other Jordan players are getting next-level interest. According to Cox, Jordan senior and reigning PAC-6 Player of the Year Salita Greene is weighing offers from 12 Division 1 schools, including N.C. Central, Elon, Campbell, Coastal Carolina, N.C. A&T and Appalachian State.

Cox says rising senior guard Jazymne Norwood and rising sophomore guard Rachel Ruderman are also receiving interest.

Last season, Jordan went 16-10 and 8-2 in the PAC-6, good for a second-place finish in the conference. The Falcons made it to the second round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association state playoffs before falling to Southeast Raleigh, 39-34.
