Lady Cougars Ink One Signee During Late Signing Period

April 25, 2001

HOUSTON, Texas - University of Houston women's basketball head coach Joe Curl and his staff today announced that they have signed Nakia Holmes of Central Arizona Junior College during the NCAA late signing period.

"We're excited about this very athletic and talented addition," said Curl. "Nakia's biggest asset is her ability to defend all over the court."

Holmes, a native of Chandler, Arizona, comes to Houston from Central Arizona where she was named Most Valuable Player of the CAC Tournament this past season. The 6'1" forward earned numerous acclaims during her high school career at Corona Del Sol, including All-Conference, All-City and All-Region during both her junior and senior campaigns. She was team captain both years, and in her senior season was named team MVP as well as to the All-State First Team.

This past season for the Lady Vaqueras, Holmes averaged 18 points and six rebounds per game.

Holmes is the second player Curl has recruited and who has transferred to Houston from Central Arizona JC in the past three years, following former Lady Cougar Monet Sykes, who closed out her collegiate career this past season.

"She's a phenomenal overall athlete," Curl said of Holmes. "She is so versatile, has the ability to play one of three positions, and brings the whole package."

In other good news surrounding the Lady Cougars, Sykes has been invited by Cynthia Cooper and her staff to try out for the WNBA Phoenix Mercury, and ShaRonda Lasseter, who also wrapped up her collegiate career this past season, has been invited to try out with the WNBA Houston Comets.
