2010-11 Season
◊ Tied for game-high scoring honors with 13 points and hauled in eight rebounds in her unofficial debut - an exhibition victory over Division II Lander.
◊ Notched her first double-digit scoring output of the regular season with 11 points against Southern Miss on Dec. 1.
◊ Became the 66th - of now 67- freshman to start for the Lady Bulldogs during Andy Landers' 32 seasons in Athens when she got the nod against Mercer on Dec. 7. Current Lady Bulldogs Meredith Mitchell, Anne Marie Armstrong, Jasmine Hassell and Jasmine James also started during their freshman years...as well as classmate Khaalidah Miller.
◊ Put together perhaps the most impressively balanced linescore of the season against Mercer, with 11 boards, eight points, seven steals and six assists against the Bears.
◊ Her 11 rebounds against Mercer represented the most by a Lady Bulldog point guard in nearly a decade...since Kelly Miller had 17 boards at UCLA on Dec. 30, 2000.
◊ Made her second start of the year against FIU on Dec. 30 and collected a game-high four steals.
◊ The linescore may not jump out at you but make no mistake, Ransford's energy in the Florida game in Athens on Jan. 16 - especially on the defensive end - was vital in the Lady Bulldogs' rally from a 16-point deficit with 14:21 remaining.
◊ Notched her first career double-double with a career-best 12 points and 10 rebounds versus Mississippi State on Jan. 23.
◊ Started at point guard and equaled her career high with 33 MP against Alabama in Athens on Feb. 6.
◊ Missed the final two regular-season games and the SEC Tournament for failing to "take care of her academic business" according to Andy Landers.
◊ Was not expected to travel to Auburn for the NCAA Tournament but then did so and then saw limited minutes against Texas A&M in the "Sweet 16."

High School
◊ Coached by Frank Oliver at H.D. Woodson High.
◊ Selected to play in the McDonald's All-America game, the eight future Lady Bulldog - and third point guard - to be included in the event's nine years of existence.
◊ Scored two points and collected a steal in 10 minutes of action in the McDonald's All-America contest.
◊ Named third-team All-America by Parade Magazine as a senior in 2010.
◊ Rated as the nation's No. 11 recruit by Peach State Hoops, as well as being listed at No. 13 by Blue Star, No. 16 by the All-Star Girls Report, No. 21 by Hoopgurlz and No. 34 by the Collegiate Girls Basketball Report.
◊ Tabbed DCIAA Player of the Year by the Washington Post as a senior.
◊ Named first-team All-Met by the Washington Post as both a junior and a senior after being an honorable mention pick as a sophomore.
◊ Missed a month of her senior season with the Woodson Warriors due to a leg injury.
◊ Returned to action for the John F. Kennedy Challenge in New York and scored 17 and 18 points in respective wins over Bishop Ford (N.Y.) and North Babylon (N.Y.).
◊ As a senior, averaged 23.5 ppg, 4.5 spg, 4.4 apg and 3.4 rpg game while leading Woodson to a 21-5 finish, a fifth straight D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association (DCIAA) title and a runner-up finish in the city tournament.
◊ Scored a game-high 23 points, including five three-pointers, for the North team in the inaugural Capital Classic all-star game.
◊ As a junior, averaged 17.5 points per game while leading H.D. Woodson to its second straight D.C. City Championship and a final record of 22-6.
◊ Scored 21 points - including 19 in the second half - in the 2009 city title win over Good Counsel.
◊ As a freshman, averaged 12 points per game.
◊ Poured in 31 points in the DCIAA title game victory over Roosevelt as a freshman to earn final Most Valuable Player honors.
