Jamila Veasley is in her first season as Director of Basketball Operations at UCLA. The former Bruin player returned home to Westwood in the summer of 2007 after working the past few years as an insurance litigation paralegal at Dickstein Shapiro LLP. She is continuing to pursue her Master's degree in Humanities at Cal State Dominguez Hills.
Veasley, a four-year letterwinner at UCLA from 2001-04, started 76 games in her career. She started each game of her junior and senior seasons when the Bruins posted 35 wins. Veasley was a member of some of the best defensive units in school history. In three of her seasons, UCLA limited opponents to a field goal percentage which ranked among the all-time top 10 lowest marks (2004 - #6 .410; 2002 - #7 .412); 2003 - t10th - .417). In 2004, the Bruins held the opposition to the third-lowest scoring average in school history (63.8 points per game). In the 2003 season, opponents scored at the fifth-lowest average (67.1).
In 2004, Veasley was a member of the Bruin team which advanced to the NCAA Tournament and tied for third in the Pac-10. In 2003, she served as a team co-captain on a team which placed fourth in the conference. Veasley ranked seventh in the Pac-10 Conference in blocked shots with a 0.69 average. Her total of 20 blocked shots led the team and ranked, at the time, as the eighth-best mark ever by a Bruin junior.
