Cowgirls Sign Six

Oklahoma State women's basketball coach Kurt Budke signed six high school players on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

Members of the Cowgirls class include:

Keuna Flax, 5-9, Haltom, Texas: The versatile athlete plays all five spots on the floor for her high school team, averaging 21 points (including a season-best 37 in one game) and 7.1 rebounds as a junior.

Heather Howard, 6-3, Shawnee Mission (West), Kans.: She averaged 13 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks last season as a junior in leading her team to the Class 6A state tournament.

Desiree Jeffries, 5-10, Del City, Okla.: The daughter of former Cowboy Royce Jeffries (1986-90), she has averaged 13.1 points and 5.1 rebounds since breaking into the starting lineup as a freshman.

Lindsey Keller, 6-2, Goddard, Kans.: A first-team All-State selection a year ago as a junior, she averaged 18.2 points per game in leading her team to the Class 6A state championship game.

LaSharra Riley, 6-1, Topeka (Washburn Rural), Kans.: She averaged 11.8 points and 10.0 rebounds in earning Centennial League Most Valuable Player honors last season as a junior.

Toni Young, 6-2, Del City, Okla.: She is one of the few high school girls who can dunk the ball (if you don't believe it, there's a YouTube video to prove it).
