NASHVILLE --- Tennessee State University head women’s basketball coach Larry Inman announced that Kaliya Griffin has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Lady Tigers beginning next season.
Griffin is a three-star athlete from San Jose, Calif. The 5-6 guard played two seasons at Archbishop Mitty High School before transferring to Inderkum High School in Sacramento, Calif.
“We are excited about what she brings to our program,” commented head coach Larry Inman. “She is the total package. Great student, good team person and very good shooter! She is an outstanding young lady!”
During the 2012-13 campaign Griffin was named to the ESPN Top 60 Watchlist as a freshman.
As a junior she helped Inderkum HS to a 24-4 record, the best in school history. That season, she was selected as the MVP of the Tri-County Conference and League Championship in addition to receiving Honorable Mention accolades for the Sacramento Bee All Metro Team.
As the Inderkum’s starting point guard, Griffin averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 steals, 3.0 assists and 2.0 rebound per game during her junior season. She is currently the 6th ranked point guard in Northern California (NorCal Preps) and 17th ranked overall player.
She was also a runner up in the Player of the Year award for the Sacramento/San Joaquin Area.
