Let’s look at their relationship in greater detail to learn more about it.
When did Austin Reaves and Jenna Barber meet?
The NBA player met his 23-year-old girlfriend Jenna Barber, studying together at Cedar Rodge High School. Later, the two switched their colleges of attendance. In contrast to Austin, who transferred from Oklahoma to Wichita State University to play basketball, Jenna chose to attend the University of Arkansas while choosing a long-distance relationship.
The long-distance relationship does not always works, however, it was not in this case with Jenna living in Arkansas and Austin in L.A. Jenna was recently spotted attending one of the Lakers matches after she uploaded photos of herself wearing the no.15 Lakers jersey and posed alongside Austin. She has been to several other games before.
