Kianna Williams, a 2014 graduate of Lakeside High School, has accepted a basketball scholarship from the University of Northern Colorado.

The All-League, All-CIF point guard averaged 18.6 points, 7.3 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 5.3 steals and 1.5 blocks each game. She was the number eight scorer and the number five 3-point shooter in the Southern Section.

She led her team to the CIF Southern Section Finals and to the State Regional Semi-Finals, both firsts for the relatively new high school. Williams was named to the MaxPreps 2013-14 California All-State Girls Basketball team.

The University of Northern Colorado basketball program finished 14-15 and 8-12 in Big Sky play during the 2013-14 season.

They have hired a new Head Coach in Kamie Etheridge, a 2002 inductee of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame and a 1988 Olympic Gold Medalist, who won 500 games coaching Kansas State.

They are also returning the conference’s third leading scorer, Stephanie Lee, and 2012-13’s leading scorer, D’Shara Strange.

"I look forward to competing in the Big Sky Conference where I will be going against former [travel ball] teammates Priscilla Brooks (JW North) and Taylor Brown (Chino)," Williams said.

Brooks is at Northern Arizona University and Brown is at Sacramento State University.
