Janetta holds the University of Wisconsin (Madison) Women's Basketball team record in single season shot blocks (130).

"Janetta's endearing spirit lends itself to her towering presence and professionalism. It is a blessing to be able to work with her and have her share her basketball breadth and depth with our team. She's humble, tough, and not afraid of facing challenges head on…Janetta loves the game of basketball and we are excited to have her at UM-Dearborn." - Coach Sheri Washington
