Moberly Area Community College head women’s basketball coach Chad Killinger recently announced the signing of three in-state players who will be joining the Lady Greyhound program for the 2017-2018 season. Shianne Rhorer, a 5-10 forward from Prairie Home, Dasia Batteast, a 5-10 guard from St. Louis, and Chrishey Wilkes, a 6-0 forward from St. Louis, have all returned their National Letters of Intent within the past few weeks.

Rhorer helped her Prairie Home team to a 22-10 record and 4th place finish in the MSHSAA Class 1 State Tournament this past season as she averaged 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 4.6 steals per game. She shot 40 percent from three point range and nearly 70 percent on free throws. She is the all-time leading scorer at Prairie Home for both boys and girls basketball with over 2,000 career points. Rhorer notched her career high of 47 points in a 65-30 win against Fayette during her junior season and had 16 games with 30 or more points while recording 32 double-doubles, including four games with 20 or more rebounds over the past two seasons. She also recorded a triple double with 23 points, 20 rebounds, and 11 steals against Tuscumbia during her senior season.

"Shianne is a versatile player who can score around the basket, but is also capable of knocking down the three," said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. "We were looking to add a couple of shooters in our recruiting class and she is definitely someone that fits that role, but her ability to score in a variety of ways is really impressive. She will also bring some toughness and is an extremely competitive person, and those things will give her a chance to contribute right away."

batteastBatteast attended McKinley Classical Leadership Academy where she averaged 16.2 points, 11.9 rebounds, and four steals per game this past season as she was named All-District and First Team All-Public High School League. She recorded a triple double against Soldan with 19 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 steals and also put together a 20 point, 22 rebound performance against Gateway STEM. During her junior season Batteast was named Second Team All-Public High School League as she averaged 18.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 3.95 steals per contest. She just missed a quadruple double in a victory over Confluence as she totaled 22 points, 20 rebounds, nine assists, and seven steals. Batteast recorded her first career triple double during her junior season when she had 18 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists against Gateway STEM. She finished her career as the all-time leading scorer at McKinley with over 1,000 points.

"Dasia is a great kid that has the potential to make an immediate impact for us on both ends of the floor," said Killinger. "One of the things we like the most about her is her ability to rebound, which is an area we wanted to improve upon with our perimeter positions. She does a good job of anticipating defensively and using her length to create turnovers and can score off the dribble, as well as from the three point line."

wilkesWilkes will attend MACC after finishing her prep career at North Technical High School. This past season she helped her team to a 20-8 record as she registered five double-doubles and reached double figures in the rebounding column in 17 contests. Wilkes grabbed 15 or more rebounds in eight games and recorded 20 or more rebounds three times, including a career high 25 rebounds against McCluer South. She blocked five or more shots on six occasions, while finishing her senior season ranked 12th in the St. Louis Metro area in blocked shots per game and 13th in rebounding average. Wilkes had a total of 513 rebounds during her junior and senior seasons and averaged six points, 11.8 rebounds, and three blocks over the course of her senior year.

"Chrishey is a good athlete," said Killinger. "She has some work to do in order to be effective with her back to the basket, but we were looking for someone who could defend, rebound, and run the floor and she fits that role very well. She improved each season that she was in high school and I am looking forward to watching her continue to develop during her time with us."
