Southeastern head coach Darin Grover has announced the signing of four players who will join the Savage Storm women's basketball roster for the 2014-15 season.
The class is split evenly by the Red River, with Kaitlan Standridge and Kaylen Sweat coming staying in Oklahoma, while Sa'Leisha Hunter and Emem David hail from Texas.
Sweat, a 5-6 guard and native of Madill, Okla., comes to SE after averaging 19.6 ppg and shooting 70 percent from the floor last season. She was an equally impressive 53 percent from behind the arc and hit 87 percent of her free throws. She also averaged 4.6 rebounds per game, as well 3.0 assists and 3.0 steals per outing.
"Kaylen is an exceptional shooter," said Grover. "She grew up in a gym with her dad, and shows a desire to continue to get better. Kaylen also has a great skill set and very quick hands on defense. I have known her for the past nine years and watched her grow as a person and a player."
Hunter, a 5-6 guard from Sherman, Texas, joins the Storm after posting 18.7 ppg last season and being named the All-Texoma-Land Player of the Year in addition to the Co-Defensive Player of the Year in Distrcit 13-4A. She also posted 3.8 reboudns per contest along with 3.3 assists and 4.5 steals.
"Sa'Leisha had a monster senior season," said Grover. "She showed her ability to score in transition, midrange, and from behind the arc. I believe she can play multiple positions, she as great speed and quickness and has a very high skill level."
Standridge, a 5-10 forward from Poteau, Okla., averaged 18 ppg and shot 56 percent from the field. She was solid from long range, hitting 38 percent from three-point range while also adding 10.0 rebounds per game. She also pitched in 2.7 assists per contest and 2.9 steals.
"We are very excited about Kaitlan playing for SE next year," said Grover. "She has a unique combination of strength, speed, and skill. Kaitlan can really shoot the three and is a very good rebounder. We think she is a great fit in our offense."
David, a 6-0 forward from Tyler, Texas, comes to Southeastern from Robert E. Lee High School. While limited as a senior due to injury, she did post 6.0 ppg and 6.0 rebounds per contest as a junior.
"Emem gives us size and strength on the blocks," said Grover. "This was an area of need for our program and we believe she fills that need. Emem's biggest strength the floor is her work ethic, we love players that will give everything they have. Unfortunately, she was unable to play the majority of her senior year due to a knee injury, but she is back full strength now and should be ready next year."
