Kaylin Little has signed a national letter of intent to continue her education and basketball career at Mid-America Christian University (Oklahoma City).

Little (Orange / Orangefield High School) played for the San Jacinto College women’s basketball team for the past two years. As a sophomore, she appeared in all 29 games. The 5-5 shooting guard led the conference and nation in free throw percentage at 86.1 percent. She was also the team’s top scorer, at 13.3 points per game, which was ninth best in Region XIV. Little shot a league-best 52.8 percent from three-point range this past season, and was named to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XIV women’s basketball All-Conference honorable mention team.

As a freshman, Little appeared in all 30 San Jac games, shooting 39 percent from the field, while averaging 7.6 points per game. She was one of the best free throw shooters in the conference at 74 percent.

At Orangefield High School, she was named first team All-State and played in the Greater Houston Area All-Star game. She led the Bobcats to the district championship as a senior and to the regional tournament as a sophomore and junior. San Jacinto College finished the 2009-2010 season with a 6-23 overall record, 2-16 in conference play, under second-year head coach Eric Taylor.

Taylor says Little is in many ways a coach’s dream player. “Her talent will be greatly missed, mostly the sharp shooting,” he commented. “I will miss her high IQ for the game. She was a true coach on the floor, plus she had determination, hustle, a never-give-up and feisty attitude. She is the type of player that a coach wishes they had every year. Also, she was a great teammate, always thinking of the team first.”
