She was named one of the best centers of COCABA after finishing as the second-leading scorer in the games.
Hambrick, 5'8" guard, averaged 15 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists during her sophomore season at Tyler Junior College. A native of Larue, Texas, Hambrick led TJC to a 2019 NJCAA Region XIV regular season title and back-to-back berths in the NJCAA Division I National Tournament.

It marked only the fourth time in school history TSU has won 20 games as Cooper-Dyke has done it twice.
