Oskam chooses to play for 'the Q'

Bethlehem basketball standout Jaci Oskam is taking her talents to the school she affectionately calls the Q.

The senior forward signed her national letter of intent last Friday to play for Quinnipiac.

"I chose 'the Q' for many reasons, but the most important was that it's a great school academically and also because I loved the coaches, players and the facilities," said Oskam. "The campus is beautiful, and they are adding new buildings and technology. Academically, it has everything I am looking for, and [it has] a great support system for the players to help me if I need it."

Oskam looked at several NCAA Division I schools in the Northeast including Brown, Princeton and Dartmouth before choosing Quinnipiac.

"I ended up comparing all the schools to Quinnipiac, and 'the Q' always came out on top," said Oskam.

Oskam and her Bethlehem basketball teammates begin their season Dec. 4 at the Albany Falcons Tournament.""
