HOUGHTON, Mich. – Michigan Tech head women’s basketball coach Kim Cameron recently announced that three players have signed National Letters of Intent to join the program for the 2013-14 season.

“All three of our early signees are basketball junkies,” said Cameron. “They are gym rats that love to work and want to get better. They have a variety of strengths that will add depth to our team. They are great people and students first, and very talented basketball players. We are extremely excited to have them in our Michigan Tech family.”

Morgan Anderson earned all-conference accolades at guard for De Pere (Wis.) High School. She averaged 10.2 points per game and led the Redbirds to the state title in 2012. The team finished as state runner-up in 2010 and Fox River Conference champions in 2011. Anderson was a member of Dream Team, Sting Cancer, Student Council and Key Club. She plans to major in biology.

“Morgan is a tough, hard nosed player who competes on every possession. She makes plays for herself and her teammates, and the game isn’t over until the final buzzer goes. Morgan is a guard who can direct her team at the point position, or shoot and get to the rim from the wing. She plays an aggressive game and doesn’t think twice about going up against bigger defenses.”

Kelli Guy is a two-time all-state guard at Kalkaska (Mich.) High School who averaged 21.6 points per game as a junior. She shot over 90-percent from the free throw line to lead the state. Guy averaged 6.9 assists, 3.1 steals and 2.8 rebounds per game. She has scored over 1,000 career points and holds the career assist record at Kalkaska High School. Guy played one year of AAU basketball with Capital City Express and led them to the 2012 U-16 State Championship. Guy was also an all-conference selection in softball.

She ranks third in her class and was a member of the National Honor Society, Teacher Academy, student council, member of homecoming court and was a basketball camp counselor. Her grandfather Dr. William Kitti played basketball and ran track at Michigan Tech setting records in the mile and half mile. Her mother also attended Tech. Guy plans to major in marketing.

“Kelli is a pure shooter,” said Cameron. “Plain and simple, she can flat out make baskets. She can catch and shoot, create her own shot, and shoot on a dime. She is fun to watch because she not only gets herself shots, she sees the floor very well and sets her teammates up for easy buckets. She has an incredibly high basketball i.q. and can play both the point guard or the wing position.”

Brenna Heise led New London (Wis.) High School to back-to-back Div. II state championships in 2011 and 2012. She earned first team all-conference accolades averaging 11.3 and 3.9 rebounds per game as a guard. Heise shot 55-percent from the field and 77-percent from the free throw line. She averaged 1.5 assists and 0.8 blocks. Heise is involved in DECA, N Club and National Honor Society.

“Brenna is a versatile player who has a knack for the basketball,” said Cameron. “She is a winner who has led her team to two state championships her sophomore and junior year. She is crafty and stands out because of her decision making, her length, and her winning mentality. She always finds a way to make a play, whether it be diving across the floor on the ball or making a pin point pass to her teammate. Brenna will play a 3/4 in our offense and will be able to defend those same positions.”
