The University of Central Arkansas women’s basketball program has signed Allegria Chisom of Wichita Heights (Kan.) High School as its newest recruit.
She’s the teammate of Mary Sims, who signed with UCA last month. Both play on the state champion Class 6A team in Kansas. Chisom scored the game-winning basketball in the state title game with .2 seconds left on an assist from Sims.
Chisom played on teams that were 92-8 over her career and the only constant starter every game for the Lady Falcons over the past four seasons. Last season, she averaged 8.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.3 steals and 3.2 assists per game and was an all-state honorable mention selection.
"We saw her when we were looking at Mary, and really liked her level of play and demeanor on the floor." UCA coach Matt Daniel said. "We’re ecstatic to welcome her into our basketball family, and to be able to get two starters off the No. 5 high school team in the country shows we’re doing something right."
