USI women’s basketball inks point guard

EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana women’s basketball team announced that 5’4” point guard Keisha Collins (South Holland, Illinois) has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Screaming Eagles and Head Coach Rick Stein during the 2005-06 season.

Collins is currently a senior at Marian Catholic High School (Chicago Heights, Illinois), a tradition-rich program that has been one of the top teams in the state of Illinois during her first three seasons.

Last season, she helped the Spartans to a 27-8 record, a fourth-place finish in the Class AA state tournament, their third consecutive Elite Eight appearance, and their third straight Hillcrest Holiday Classic title. MCHS was the 2002 IHSA Class AA state runner-up.

During her three seasons at MCHS, the Spartans have posted an 87-14 record.

Collins, one of four MCHS players to be signing an NLI during the early signing periods, averaged 8.0 points, 2.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.4 steals per game during her junior season in 2003-04. She connected on 37 three-pointers and shot 35 percent from the arc.

“We are excited to have Keisha sign early and join our family here at USI,” Stein said. “Keisha is a fantastic young lady who comes from a great program with a winning tradition. She is an excellent fit with our team and our style of play here at the University of Southern Indiana.”

USI is coming off its seventh NCAA II Tournament appearance in the last 10 years. The Eagles have appeared in two NCAA II Elite Eights, including the 1997 NCAA II National Championship game, won four GLVC regular season titles, and won three GLVC Tournament crowns.
