The 5-9 guard averaged 33.5 points, five rebounds, nine assists and four steals per game as a junior last season at Gibsland-Coleman High School. A first-team Class B all-state selection, she was the District Most Valuable Player and the Area Player of the Year, earning a spot on the adidas Top Ten Camp Upperclass All-Star Team. She was rated the 35th-best prospect in the country by the All Star Girls Report.
“We are extremely excited to have Tisha join our program,” Stringer said. “She is a great combo guard (1/2), is extremely quick, a great ball handler, and has three-point range. In addition, she is a tremendous person and very bright.”
