Lakewood girls basketball center Shineice Beamon verbally committed to Florida A&M Friday afternoon, said her coach Necole Tunsil.

Beamon was an integral part of the Spartans state title run last season, as the 6-2 senior manned the middle and was Lakewood's top rebounder and shot blocker.

Beamon picked FAMU over Long Island, Fordham and Florida International because "it was a better fit,'' said Tunsil, and Beamon was more comfortable with coach LeDawn Gibson, who used to coach at Winter Haven.

Lakewood will start the 2011-12 basketball season as the favorite to win another state championship.
