NIACC's Lateeka Thompson Commits to Hastings College Women's Basketball
4/23/2014 - The NIACC women's basketball team has landed a fifth player on a four-year roster for the 2014-15 season. The Trojans announced earlier this week that sophomore guard Lateeka Thompson has verbally committed to Hastings College of the NAIA's Great Plains Athletic Conference for the upcoming winter.
Thompson was a second-team junior-college All-American this past season, and is perhaps the greatest all-around player in NIACC women's basketball history. The 5-foot-7 native of Burnsville, Minnesota is the only player on four of NIACC's top-10 statistical lists for her career, including eighth on the school's all-time scoring list.
She'll join a Hastings Broncos team that went 28-6 overall and 16-4 in league play, qualifying for the NAIA Division II quarterfinals.
