Baker signs with Kennesaw State
Four All-Star members of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 23 champion Itawamba Community College Lady Indians’ basketball team have signed national letters of intent to continue their careers as student-athletes.
Houston native and former Lady Hilltopper, Ty-Nita Baker,joins Jasmine Hampton of Bruce, Ayanna Lynn of Indianola and Ashley Wiley of Waynesboro in extending their post-secondary playing time.
Baker signed with Kennesaw State University after averaging 17.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game during her career at ICC. She also averaged a 45.5 field-goal percentage and 37.4 three-point percentage during her final year with the Lady Indians.
“It feels great knowing that I have the opportunity to finish my career with Kennesaw State,” said Baker. “ICC has meant lot to me and has helped me grow over the past few years. It feels good knowing that we are leaving behind another championship for the program to build on for years to come.”
The Houston native earned NJCAA Region 23 and Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) All-State and All-Tournament team honors along with being named MVP of the MACJC All-Star game.
“Ty was an offensive machine and made a lot of great things happen on the floor for us,” said ICC coach Nanci Gray. “She got so much better during her sophomore season by evolving into an all-around player with her ability to get to the rim and finish or dish it out to create scoring opportunities for everyone around her.”
Kennesaw State is a D1 university located in Kennesaw, Georgia and is a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference.
Hampton signed with the University of West Alabama after averaging 7.4 pionts and 6.0 rebounds per game and shooting 52.9 percent from teh floor as a sophomore.
