OSU women's basketball adds 6 signees

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State's women's basketball team signed six players to National Letters of Intent this week with Lakota Beatty, Brianne Coffman, Roshunda Johnson, Katelyn Loecker, Diana Omozee and Marisha Wallace all casting their lot with the Cowgirls.

"I am really impressed with this class overall," OSU head coach Jim Littell said. "All of our coaches are to be commended for finding not only talented players, but outstanding young women that will represent Oklahoma State in a positive manner."

OSU's incoming class was ranked 15th nationally by Collegiate Girls Basketball Report and 26th in the country by Blue Star Basketball.

A 5-8 guard from Anadarko, Okla., Beatty averaged 18.6 points and five rebounds per game during her junior season while leading the Warriors to the Class 4A state championship. Following the title run, she was named to the state tournament All-Tournament team. Additionally, Beatty was named an all-state selection.

"Lakota is a combo guard that has the ability to shoot the 3-pointer, score off the dribble and is an outstanding passer," Littell said. "She also has the ability to make everybody around her better."

Coffman averaged 14.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game as a junior while helping Jarrell (Texas) High School to a 25-8 mark. As a sophomore, she averaged 12.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. The 6-3 forward has also been a track and field standout for the Cougars, winning a state title last season at the Class 2A meet in the shot put.

"Brianne is a tremendous athlete that has a Big 12 physique. She has a tremendous upside and will have a chance with playing time to be a factor early in her career," Littell said.

Johnson, a guard from Little Rock, Ark., is rated as the No. 49 overall prospect in the country by ESPN HoopGurlz. As a junior, she averaged 21 points, 6 rebounds, eight assists and three steals per game while leading Parkview High School to the Class 6A state title.
