College career[edit]

Hairston still had a good junior season, averaging 12.8 points per game. In the 2006–2007 season she was finally the star player of Temple University as she had a breakout year, averaging 18.9 points per game with 8.9 rebounds per game. In the 2007 Tournament, her final game was against Lindsey Harding, who led Duke, as Temple lost the game 62–52.
