Cox showing improvement at Bluefield College


Bluefield, VA


Danae Cox values a family atmosphere, and that's exactly what she found at Bluefield College when she was looking to transfer. "Our team was very close and the seniors on the team pushed me even in my workouts.  It just made me want to come."

The Richmond native has been a steady contributor ever since stepping on campus.  Making the most of her talents. "I'm a hard worker so I want to be the best leader I can be.  It will help my team be the best as well.  That's why I work so hard." 

The junior's game has evolved in a big way in her three years.  All coming together to help her lead the Rams in scoring. "This year she has become more diverse in her game.  She can handle, she can distribute, and I think she's made the players around her better by increasing her game" said head coach Corey Mullins.

Standing at just 5'7, Cox is not the biggest player on the court.  But, its her fierce determination that has her 2nd on the team in rebounds. "I just try to keep the ball in my hands on defense.  If we get the ball I know we have the possibility to score.  If I can rebound, I can contribute to offense by that."

The final 10 games of the season are a important stretch for Cox and company, and she knows they need to start turning it on. "They're extremely important.  I know we have top teams in those games but I'm pretty sure we can handle them.  It all comes down to how we play.  We are the only people that can beat us.  We can do it, as long as we put our mind to it we can do it."
