@LATechWBB Anthony Named Preseason All-CUSA

Oct. 20, 2017

RUSTON – Louisiana Tech junior Kierra Anthony is one of eight players named to the Preseason All-Conference USA team, announced by the league office on Friday.

Anthony joins UAB’s Rachel Childress, Charlotte’s Nyilah Jamison-Myers, North Texas’ Terriell Bradley and Marshall’s Shayna Gore who have already been announced by the C-USA office which is releasing the team one player per day.

The 5-foot-6-inch guard out of New Iberia is coming off a sophomore season that saw her earn second team all-league honors after averaging 13.2 points, 2.8 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game while leading the Lady Techsters to the program’s first postseason appearance since 2011.

Anthony shot an impressive 42 percent from the field and 72 percent from the free throw line while hitting on 42 percent (53-127) of her three-point attempts. She tied for the team lead with 23 double digit scoring games a year ago, including a team-high six 20-plus point performances.

She scored a career-high 23 points on three occasions, including games against LSU, Middle Tennessee and Marshall. Anthony also hit the game-winning jumper with five seconds remaining in a 64-63 come-from-behind win over UAB, erasing a 16-point second half deficit.

Anthony and the Lady Techsters open their season Nov. 10 at home against Grambling State, one of 16 home games on the slate. Fans can purchase season tickets by calling 318-257-3631 or email techtickets@latech.edu.
