The Moberly Area Community College women's basketball program has had three more student-athletes sign to continue their careers at the four-year level since the end of the 2016-2017 season, following Romekia Wallace, who committed to the University of Nebraska-Omaha in April.

Sophomores Nia Flowers and Angelice Kinney recently signed their National Letters of Intent, while freshman Shauna Rinehart signed hers last month.

All three former Lady Greyhounds will be suiting up at the NAIA level next season as Flowers signed with Cumberland University, located in Lebanon, Tennessee, Kinney signed with Cincinnati Christian University, and Rinehart signed with Evangel University in Springfield.

Flowers, a 5'7" guard, and Kinney, a 6'4" center, helped the Greyhound Women's program to a 41-22 record over the past two seasons. Flowers, who received the Defensive Player of Year Award for MACC following her sophomore year, started in 13 of 31 contests last season while serving as a team captain.

Kinney saw action in 39 games over her two seasons at MACC and improved dramatically in both field goal percentage and free throw percentage during her sophomore campaign. She was named a team captain midway through this past season and was presented with the teams Mental Attitude Award, as well as the Booster Club Award at the postseason banquet.

"Nia and Angelice are good kids, who were willing to work hard and do whatever was necessary to help the team win," said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. "Angelice was in a situation where she played behind some players who either signed with NCAA Division I schools or who have that potential. Despite her limited playing time she used her time here to continue to get better and her best basketball is still ahead of her."

"Nia was just solid," continued Killinger. "She did an extremely good job on the defensive end of the floor for us and was often asked to guard the opponents best perimeter scorers. She has good strength for a guard and should be able to go in and contribute to the program at Cumberland right away."

Rinehart, a 5’6” guard who attended St. James High School in Missouri, spent the 2016-2017 season in a reserve role for the Greyhound Women as she appeared in 26 games. She converted on 30 percent of her three point field goal attempts, while knocking down 79 percent of her free throws. Rinehart was named to the Dean’s List at the conclusion of the Fall 2016 semester and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining to compete at Evangel.

“Shauna is a great kid from a great family and I am really happy that she is going to have the opportunity to play at the four-year level,” said MACC head coach Chad Killinger. “She got put in a little bit of a difficult position coming out of high school because of a coaching change at the school she had originally committed to, but I am glad that she chose to spend a season in our program and believe that the competition she faced on a daily basis will have her prepared to play a larger role at Evangel over the next three years.”

The Lady Greyhounds have now had 32 student-athletes sign at the four-year level over the past six seasons under Killinger’s direction and a total of 158 in the 40 year history of the program, including 66 NCAA Division I signees.
