2015-16: Bethea provided a solid all-around presence during her freshman year at Owens despite missing 11 games in the middle of the season due to injury. In 25 games, she averaged 10.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 3.9 steals and 0.7 blocks per game. She totaled 268 points, 91 rebounds, 86 assists, 97 steals and 17 blocks, and she would have broken the program's single season steals record if not for the injury.

In Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) play, Bethea averaged 12 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, four steals and one block per game despite playing just 20 minutes per game.

Overall, Bethea produced double digits in the scoring column 14 times, including a season-high 18 points on Dec. 5 against Schoolcraft College and March 19 vs Cape Fear Community College. She had a season-high eight rebounds on March 5 vs Cincinnati State and a season-high eight assists vs Oakland on Nov. 7. She also had at least two steals in every game she played except four, while recording a season-high nine on Oct. 31 vs Roane State.

In the NJCAA Division II National Tournament, Bethea averaged 11.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 4.5 steals per game.

Prior to Owens: As a senior, Bethea averaged 8.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 1.5 assists per game while leading Huron to a 22-2 record, a Southeastern Conference (SEC) Red championship and a berth in the regional finals. While shooting 46.9 percent from the field and often playing just one half, she was the best defensive player on a team that held opponents to fewer than 30 points per game with a 27.8 average margin of victory.

Following the season, she was named First Team All-SEC Red, Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) All-Michigan and Associated Press (AP) Class A Special Mention All-Michigan. She was also named to the Ann Arbor News and Washtenaw County Dream Teams. Furthermore, she was named the No. 10 player on the Detroit Free Press Top 100 players list by Mick McCabe.

As a junior, Bethea averaged 10.3 points, 3.5 steals, three rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 47.7 percent from the field. She led her team to SEC Red and district championships and was named First Team All-SEC Red, BCAM Class A Honorable Mention All-Michigan and AP Class A Honorable Mention All-Michigan. She also earned a spot on the Washtenaw County Dream Team.

As a sophomore, the four-year varsity player led Huron to an SEC Red championship and a district runner-up finish. She was named BCAM Class A All-Michigan and was a member of the Washtenaw County Dream Team.

Bethea helped lead her team to a SEC Red championship and a state semifinal appearance as a freshman. In a 47-44 semifinal loss to Grosse Point South, she had 11 points, six rebounds and two steals.

Outside of Huron, Bethea played AAU basketball for the Michigan Sting Elite, where she led her team to numerous tourney wins, including four state championships.

Personal: Ariel is the daughter of Anthony Logwood and Pam Wilson. She has one sister, Adazia. Her cousin, Tamera Young, plays in the WNBA for the Chicago Sky.
