Bell graduated from Texas Southern University in May 2018. During her final two years at TSU, Bell assisted the women’s basketball team as a team manager, handling film exchange and all administrative duties. During the 2016-2017 season, the TSU Lady Tigers won the South Western Athletic Conference Championship and earned an invitation to the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, the first in Texas Southern women’s basketball history.

Having achieved great success that season, Bell was later promoted to student assistant, where he was tasked with additional duties such as supervising student managers, performing game film exchanges and assisting the director of basketball operations with special projects and assignments.
