Memphis will be well represented in Indianapolis for the women’s college basketball Final Four.

Syracuse’s senior guard Cornelia Fondren and her Orange have advanced to the Final Four and will take on the Washington Huskies on Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN2.

Fondren is a graduate of Overton High School. She led them to back-to-back Memphis City Championships. She was also a member of the track and field team.

Fondren asserted herself into the starting lineup as a freshman for the Orange in 2012-13, and she has played in at least 30 games in all four seasons at Syracuse.

The senior has averaged seven points and 5.6 rebounds this year for the Orange.

Fondren is currently working towards a Master’s degree in instructional design, development and evaluation and has already earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology.
