Aisha Martin, a standout forward at Lorenzo High School in Texas, has signed a letter of intent to play college basketball at Oklahoma Christian University, OC head coach Stephanie Findley said Wednesday.

Findley visited the Class A high school, located in Lorenzo - northeast of Lubbock - on Wednesday afternoon for Martin's formal signing ceremony.

The 5-foot-10 Martin is averaging 24.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.3 steals and 4.0 assists this season for Lorenzo. She's shooting 56.6 percent from the field, 39.9 percent from 3-point range and 81.2 percent from the free-throw line for the Hornets.

As a junior, Martin was named as the most valuable player in District 7-IIA.

"Aisha is a versatile player who'll be able to play many positions for us," Findley said. "She's been a dominant player on the small-school level and I believe she has the capability of being a good player at the college level as well."

Oklahoma Christian, with about 2,200 students, is seeking membership in NCAA Division II and has been accepted into the Heartland Conference, which includes universities in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Arkansas. OC has a strong women's basketball tradition, with three appearances in the NAIA Division I quarterfinals during Findley's 27-season tenure.

Findley has won 519 games during her career, the most of any women's college basketball coach in Oklahoma. Among her former players at OC are Sherri Coale and Jan Ross, the head coach and top assistant coach, respectively, at the University of Oklahoma.
