Las Vegas, NV - Dillard University athletic director/head women's basketball coach, Kiki Baker Barnes, has announced the signing of Alena Evans from Liberty High School in Las Vegas, NV.

Evans, a 5-10 guard/forward, was a standout player for the Lady Patriots. In her senior season, she led her team in every statistical category. She averaged 14.9 points per game (ranked 14th in the region), 8.1 rebounds per game (ranked 16th in the region), 4.6 assists per game (ranked 6th in the region) and 5.3 steals per game. Evans recorded a triple-double with a season high of 31 points, 13 rebounds, 10 steals, and 9 assists in her team's 70-66 overtime victory over Canyon Springs High School at the Southeast Regional semi-finals on February 16, 2012. Her outstanding performance earned their team a 24-6 overall record and 11-3 southeast division record. As a senior, Evans earned All-Sunrise Division -1st team, All Southeast division -1st team, and 4A All-State Honors - 2nd team.

As a junior, Evans played a significant role in helping the Lady Patriots make it to the 4A State Championship final. Her team achieved a perfect 14-0 in division play and a 27-3 overall record. "My best memory was probably going to the state championship and the support that we had in the 2010-2011 was amazing," Evans said.

Evans showed promise early in her career. During her freshman season, she averaged 13.2 points per game, 9.0 rebounds per game, 3.0 steals per game and 1.3 assists per game for Silverado High School. She made the Nevada state record books by achieving a 7th ranking in the "Most Offensive Rebounds" category (in a single season) with a total 117 rebounds (28 games). She also posted the schools' first quadruple-double against Del Sol High School, January 17, 2009, with 17 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists, and 10 steals, in a game. She also earned player of the week honors (December 18, 2008) for accumulating 36 points and 39 rebounds in three games. That season, her team finished 25-7 overall and ranked 6th in the state. As a result, she was named to the Class 4A Southeast League 2nd team.

Coach Barnes is excited about the versatility that Evans will bring to the team. "Alena is excellent in transition offense and she is a tenacious defender," said Barnes. When asked about her future at Dillard, Evans said, "I am most looking forward to being in the city because I've never been to the south so it will be a good experience and I'll get a good education as well."
