CHARLESTON, S.C. – Since their freshman season of 2015-16, guards Rachel Burns and Ke'Asia Jackson have been mainstays in the Charleston Southern women's basketball lineup and have left their names alongside some of the greatest in program history.
Rachel Burns recently became just the third Buccaneer with 1,000 point, 500 rebounds and 200 steals in a career joining greats Cathy Coker and Joy Taylor. Burns is also set to become the career leader in games played and games started.
Ke'Asia Jackson has been a scoring machine over her career poised to finish among the top-six all-time after reaching the 1,000 point threshold early in her senior season. Jackson has enjoyed a career-best year in shooting percentage while cementing herself among the CSU greats alongside four-year teammate Rachel Burns.
The two came in as freshman over the summer of 2015 and have grown closer both on and off the court sharing the ups-and-downs of life as a Division-I basketball player and student. Now in their final go-round, the two sat down to talk about their relationship over the years and their lives as teammates and friends.
