Hoohuli has played four years at St. Mary's, averaging 30.3 points per game as a junior when led the state of Pennsylvania in scoring and became the school's all-time leading scorer. The 5-foot-7 guard, who entered her senior season with 1,951 points, is a two-time Player of the Year in District 9 and was and was a First-Team Class AAA All-State selection as well a junior.

"Kayla is a prolific scorer as we saw with her scoring 52 points in a playoff game," Zeh said. "She has the ability to shoot it from deep, score the basketball and is a great athlete who fits in well to our system."Wilkes is in her second season

- Ashley Wilkes, 5-11 forward, Windsor, Ont., Miami Dade College.

Wilkes is in her second season at Miami Dade Junior College where she averaged 18 points and 10.8 rebounds in her first season. The 5-foot-11 forward earned All-State honors in 2009-10 and was selected to play in the 2010 National Junior College Athletic Association All-Star Game.

"A powerful athletic forward, Ashley's ability to rebound the basketball in traffic and score will really help us," Zeh said.
