We reported the news earlier this week that Page High School point guard Paris Kea has committed to attend Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee and here is some of the background and the numbers that helped get her into the Southeastern Conference, plus notes and quotes from her coach at Page High School, Deborah Jones…
Good luck to Paris and a good job, as she will be heading to Nashville, Tennessee, to play for the Vanderbilt Commodores…..
15.1 points per game (including playoffs), 14.3 before conference tournament; 7.1 assist per game (including playoffs), 2.9 steals per game
First Team AP All-State (soph. & junior year – past records here at Page show her as the only Soph. making the First Team AP All-State Team), Greensboro Sports Player of the Year, News & Record Player of the Year, NCBCA District 7 Player of the Year, 4A All-Metro All-Conference Team, TIMCO All-Tournament MVP, and MVP – Page High School Women’s Basketball
Paris Kea is the complete package with excellent offensive skills and exceptional defensive ability. She is a fun player to watch and is an inspiration to players younger and older because of how driven she is to be the best. Paris is a very unselfish player. She doesn’t try to take the game over from the get-go, but, when the team needs her to take over, she has the ability to just that. You just need to look at the State Championship game. Personally, I think most definitely Paris is the best high school player in the area and one of the best ever in the history of Page High School. It is not just because of her offensive skills, as good as they are. It is her defense, intensity and will that set her apart from other great players in the past. She is the player that has become so well-rounded and now finds a way to her team win, weather it is with a pass, drive, outside shot or even posting up.
