Massengill, who prepped at Chattanooga's Hamilton Heights Christian Academy and played her first two college seasons for the Lady Vols, has transferred to Kentucky. By joining the Wildcats, she will reunite with former Tennessee Xtreme AAU teammates Rhyne Howard and Treasure Hunt.

A trio of former Chattanooga AAU girls' basketball standouts will have the chance to recreate their Tennessee Xtreme chemistry at the University of Kentucky.

Rhyne Howard, the former Bradley Central Bearette who is already a star for the Wildcats with two college seasons behind her, will be joined next school year in Lexington by two familiar faces: Jazmine Massengill, whose transfer from Tennessee was announced April 15, and Massengill's former Hamilton Heights Christian Academy teammate Treasure Hunt, who signed with Kentucky in November.

Massengill, a 6-foot guard, cleared the NCAA transfer portal the same day the Lady Volunteers announced the addition of 6-foot-1 forward/center Keyen Green, a graduate transfer from Liberty. After playing for two of late legendary Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt's former guards her first two college seasons - Holly Warlick as a freshman and Kellie Harper as a sophomore - Massengill will be coached by Matthew Mitchell, whose collegiate coaching career started as a graduate assistant on Summitt's staff in the 1999-2000 season.
