Millard South guard Khloe Lemon is the latest Patriot girls basketball player to commit to a Division I program to play college basketball.
Sunday, the 5-foot-10 guard announced her commitment to California Baptist University via twitter.
“Originally I was going to wait and see how July was going to pan out,” Lemon said of her decision. “After the visit I decided no school has shown me as much interest and coach Jarrod (Olson) has Millard South and family ties to Omaha. The facilities are really nice and I got along with the players so it was just the perfect fit.”
Lemon also has ties to the Riverside, California area. Her father (Rodney) lives an hour and a half from the Lancer’s campus.
‘Why wait if it feels right to you,” she said of Cal Baptist. “I had this school that really wanted me so I didn’t want to wait if it felt right.”
Lemon joins her teammates Cora Olsen (Omaha) and Mya Babbitt (Kent State) as the third in the 2023 class to commit to a Division I program.
Last season Lemon appeared in 25 of the Patriots 28 games (27-1) and led them in scoring (16 ppg) and a state semifinal appearance. She chose Cal Baptist over interest from Pepperdine and Montana.
