Women's Basketball Adds Sunshine Star
"Shafontaye is a young lady that we have watched over the last few years and really think she is going to be great addition to our program," said Alabama Coach Wendell Hudson. "She is a complete player, but I think she will really help us offensively. Last season we would go through scoring droughts that would take us out of the game. Shafontaye's ability to score should, no doubt, help us in that area."
Shafontaye Myers, a 5-8 guard from Newbern, guided Sunshine High School to the 2010 Alabama Class 1A State Championshis, where she scored 26 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. As a senior, she led the Lady Tigers in scoring with an average of 29.2 points per game, steals with 6.4 thefts per outing and assists with 2.7 dishes a contest.
Myers scored 30-plus points on 13 occasions throughout the 2009-10 season and reached the 40-point mark twice.
Her junior campaign was just as impressive as she led Sunshine in nearly every category highlighted by her 31.1 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per game.
Myers' extensive list of accolades includes a spot on the 2010 Alabama Class 1A All-Tournament Team as well as the Alabama Sports Writers Association Class 1A Player of the Year award. She has also won numerous All-Regional Tournament Team nods, regional tournament Most Valuable Player honors, ASWA All-State recognition and has been named to the Tuscaloosa News Super 5.
