Benningfield Update

Here's an update on another former Commodore...

Women's basketball standout Jenni Benningfield (2001-04) is currently playing for the Dandenong Rangers in the top level professional women's league in Australia.

You'll see in the above photo that Benningfield's wearing protective glasses. Benningfield was poked in the eye and fractured her cheekbone a few weeks ago. She returned to the court Saturday and played 12 minutes and scored four points in a 62-60 loss to the Bendigo Spirit. For the season, she leads the Rangers in scoring (15.0) and rebounding (7.2).

Benningfield was a member of the WNBA's Indiana Fever in 2005 and spent time overseas playing in Spain. She was orginally drafted by Charlotte in the 2004 WNBA Draft.
