Women's Hoops Signs Two

The Miami women's basketball team signed Imani Dhahabu and Amy Audibert to national letters of intent in the early signing period that began on Wednesday, announced by head coach Ferne Labati. "I am extremely pleased with our new additions to the Hurricane family," said Labati. "Our staff did a tremendous job to get two players of this caliber."

Dhahabu, a 6-1 forward from Vallejo, Calif., is a standout player at Salesian High School in Richmond, Calif. Dhahabu averaged 16.5 points per game last season for the Chieftains, who finished the season with a 16-11 overall record and 8-5 mark in the Bay Shore Athletic League. Dhahabu, the Bay Shore Athletic League Most Valuable Player last season, also considered Virginia, Michigan, Louisville and Cal before choosing the Hurricanes. She made official visits to Michigan, Louisville and Miami.

Audibert, a 6-3 post from Niagara Falls, Ontario, is the No. 1 post player in Ontario according to the Ontario Top 50 evaluation service.

Audibert averages 25 points and 15 rebounds per game for A. N. Myer High School. She led her AAU team, which is ranked No. 1 in Ontario, to a 35-8 season.

She was named to the Toronto Star Provincial All-Star Team. The Hurricanes begin the 2002-03 campaign Friday Nov. 22 when they host South Florida at 7 p.m. in the Knight Sports Complex.
