Niya Morant, the sister of Memphis Grizzlies all-star Ja Morant, has committed to play basketball at Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU).
She announced the news via Instagram on Thursday morning, posting a series of photos of her in MVSU gear with the caption “Let’s go Devilettes.”
According to HBCU Sports, Morant was a stat sheet-stuffer for Houston High School in Germantown, Tennessee this past season, averaging 11.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, helping the Lady Mustangs to a 21-11 record in 2022-23.
Morant comes to MVSU after receiving an offer from the university back in January. The Devillettes finished 2-27 in 2022-23 and went 0-18 in SWAC play last season.
Morant is also following in her father, Tee Morant’s footsteps, by playing at HBCU. Tee Morant played college basketball at Claflin University in the 1990s.
