New Commits!

  • Southwest star, Shana Holmes, committed to Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. The South Texas Hoyas guard is one of the most prolific scorers in the city's history and will take her gifts to the Gulf South Conference.

  • MacAurthur star, Nikki Nolan, has committed to Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri. The SA Heat guard is one of intense players in the city for the class of 2011. Her tenacious play will assist her in the Heart of America Athletic Conference.

These two commitments are remarkable. Both of these young stars suffered ACL injuries in their playing career. They both are in the 5"5 range. The knee injuries and lack of stereotypical basketball height did not prevent them from earning scholarships and lends to the argument that San Antonio basketball is gaining national respect. Both players have played club ball since at least middle school and their travels have apparently paid off, with one gaining the attention of a school in Arkansas and the other in Missouri.

Congrats young ladies! Your accomplishments are paving the way for future area undersized ballers!
