PLAYER BIO

Ashley Mays is a 5'8 scoring guard from Indianapolis Warren Central. She possesses excellent range and accuracy, can break down defenses, and defensively is ahead of the game herself. Her junior year, Mays averaged 21.9 points, nine rebounds and three assists for a 4-16 team. She had a season-high 40 points against Terre Haute South on her home court. Her stats were comparable to her sophomore year, when she averaged 18.3 points, 11 rebounds and 3.2 assists. Mays still has the potential to get much better.

Ashley Mays verbally committed to Purdue on 2/15/01, and officially signed during the early signing period of November 2001. She chose Purdue over Big Ten schools Wisconsin and Iowa.
