"I'm not able to comment on it, but one thing I will say, I care about Jenzel. I'll say my prayers for her," Adams said.
Nash had been suspended indefinitely from the UTEP women's basketball team after playing in one exhibition game. She was expected to be the team's top returning scorer and one of the leaders for Coach Adams. In three seasons, Nash has scored 1,023 points and was voted First Team All C-USA in 2016. She already holds a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and was pursuing her master's degree in leadership studies.
