Yazoo County High School basketball standout Jhamario Bassett signed with Southeastern Baptist College over the weekend.

"First things first, I just wanna say I give all glory to the man above," and Bassett. "I want to thank my family, friends, and teammates for support throughout this long journey. I want to thank the coaches at Southeastern Baptist College for allowing me to play at the next level."

The 6’2, 190-pound power forward averaged nearly six points a game in 29 played for the Panthers in 2019-2020. He averaged just over four rebounds per game as well.

Bassett helped Yazoo County to a 19-12 record as a senior.

“We are expecting him to be a great utility player,” said SBC Men’s Basketball Coach Broderick Hall He has high energy up and down the court and loves to guard. Bassett is going to be pretty tough on both ends of the court.”

Bassett becomes the eighth player to sign with Southeastern Baptist College men’s basketball this offseason.
