ANCHORAGE – Coming off its third 30-win season in the past four years, the Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball team added its latest impact recruit Monday as head coach Ryan McCarthy announced that guard Kedranea’ Addison has signed a financial aid agreement to play for the Seawolves.
A 5-8 guard, Addison was an NJCAA Div. I Second Team All-American at Cowley (Kan.) College last season, averaging 17.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.8 steals per game, while shooting .471 overall, .412 from three-point range and .725 on free throws. Also the Jayhawk Conference Eastern Division Player of the Year, she posted 10 20-point games in 2018-19, averaging 23.8 ppg over the final 12 contests to help the Tigers finish 24-8.
Addison posted five points/assists double-doubles as a sophomore, including a triple-double (17 pts/10 rebs/10 assts) in a home win over Allen County, and she had games of 41 points in an overtime loss to Butler CC and 37 points in a road win over Allen County.
“Kedranea’ is a dynamic scorer who can create off the dribble and open up lots of opportunities for her teammates,” said McCarthy, who has led UAA to five straight Great Northwest Athletic Conference regular-season titles. “She will definitely give our offense a new dimension the next two seasons.”
Originally from New Orleans, Addison was an all-district selection and team MVP at Helen Cox High School.
Addison becomes the third player to join UAA’s 2019 recruiting class, along with incoming freshmen Rachel Ingram (5-7, G, Colorado Springs, Colo./Colorado Springs Christian HS) and Ellen Silva (6-1, F, Fairbanks, Alaska/West Valley HS), both of whom signed national letters of intent last fall.
The Seawolves lose four seniors – all starters – from last year’s team that went 30-3 overall, reached the NCAA ‘Sweet’ 16 and finished No. 7 in the WBCA Div. II Top 25 Coaches’ Poll.
