As she so often is, Jasmine Lister is on the move again.
Lister -- the energetic point guard who is Vanderbilt's all-time leader in minutes played -- has been invited to the Seattle Storm's training camp, and she is scheduled to fly to the West Coast next week.
The Storm, who announced Lister's invitation on Wednesday, open their WNBA camp on the 27th at Seattle Pacific University.
"I am so excited," said Lister, "and I am just really grateful for this opportunity."
Lister, who is scheduled to fly out on the 24th, said she is not putting any extra pressure on herself.
"I am just going to go out there and play," she said, "and do what the coaches ask me to do. I really like what I've learned so far about the team and the players."
Lister recently completed an outstanding career at Vanderbilt, where she established the reputation as being one of the most hard-working and durable players in the program's history. She was in the starting lineup for every game of her career (129) and ranks 10th on the team's all-time scoring list.
She logged a staggering 4,626 minutes of playing time, easily the most by any player to wear a Commodore uniform. This season, she was an WBCA All-American Honorable Mention and was named to the All-SEC Second Team.
Lister ranks third on the Vanderbilt's all-time list for assists (591) and ranks 10th on the school's all-time scoring list (1,618).
She was named espnW's national player of the week on Jan. 12 after helping lead the Commodores to a victory over Tennessee. That same week, she was named the SEC's Player of the Week and the USBWA Player of the Week.
