MARTIN, Tenn. –
University of Tennessee at Martin women’s basketball head coach Kevin McMillan has announced the additions of Aundrea Adams (Corinth, Miss.), Kyannah Grant (Ackerman, Miss.) and Kyarrah Grant (Ackerman, Miss.) to national letters of intent.

“As we head into the offseason, we are going to try to play faster and each of these players will really help us,” McMillan said. “Not only do they add depth, but athleticism at both the post and the perimeter. The best thing you get out of them is their grit and toughness which is something hard to measure.”

Aundrea Adams, F, 5-11, Jr., Corinth, Miss. (Northeast Mississippi CC)

Adams is a 5-11 forward from Northeast Mississippi Community College where she played two seasons for head coach Brenda Mayes. During her sophomore campaign, Adams started in all 27 games while averaging 18.0 points and 8.5 rebounds per game along with 50 assists and 42 blocks. A three-time MACJC Player of the Week, she eclipsed double figures 26 times and tallied eight double-doubles, including 12 games with at least 20 points and a pair of 30-point outings. Arguably her best game came against Coahoma CC on Feb. 1, tallying 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. As a freshman, she averaged 13.9 points per game while scoring in double figures 21 times along with nine double-doubles. She prepped at Corinth High School for Fred Stafford where she was an all-county selection and defensive player of the year on the basketball court while ranking as a high jump state champion in track.

“Aundrea is a super athletic post player that can either position for us,” McMillan said. “She has the ability to run, rebound and plays extremely hard. When you combine those attributes with her great family, she will be the perfect fit for what we are planning to do.”

Kyannah Grant, G, 5-7, Fr., Choctaw, Miss. (Choctaw Central HS)

Kyannah Grant is a 5-7 guard from Choctaw Central High School where she played for head coach Bill Smith. She joins her fraternal twin sister, Kyarrah, after leading the Warriors to back-to-back Mississippi 3A state championships with a combined record of 65-4 over the past two seasons. She averaged 7.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game as a senior, including 13 points and a team-high six rebounds in the state championship game. Accolades include being named to the 2017-18 Clarion Ledger girls’ basketball Dandy Dozen and 2018 Premier Preps of East Mississippi team. As a four-time all-region selection, she played in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star game. She averaged 10.0 points, five rebounds and four assists per game as a junior while being named the C SPIRE Scholar-Athlete of the Game in the state championship game. Ranked as a three-star guard by ESPN with a scout grade of 88 and as the 83rd-best point guard in the nation.

“Kyannah is a proven winner leading her team to back-to-back state titles,” McMillan said. “She knows what it takes to make her team successful. I’ve watched her compete this summer and she never backs down. She’s a leader and her work ethic is infectious.”

Kyarrah Grant, G, 5-7, Fr., Choctaw, Miss. (Choctaw Central HS)

Kyarrah Grant is a 5-7 guard from Choctaw Central High School where she played for head coach Bill Smith. She joins her fraternal twin sister, Kyannah, after leading the Warriors to back-to-back Mississippi 3A state championships with a combined record of 65-4 over the past two seasons. Averaged 8.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game as a senior, including a game-high 20 points in the state championship game. Accolades include being named to the 2017-18 Clarion Ledger girls’ basketball Dandy Dozen and 2018 Premier Preps of East Mississippi team. As a four-time all-region selection, she played in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star game. She averaged 11.0 points, five rebounds and four assists per game as a junior. Ranked as a three-star guard by ESPN with a scout grade of 88 and as the 92nd-best off guard in the nation.

“Kyarrah is a competitor who shoots it well and battles on both ends of the floor,” McMillan said. “Again, being on back-to-back state championship teams is immeasurable for you because of how much you understand about commitment, sacrifice and discipline. She’s yet another perfect fit for our program.”

The Skyhawk trio joins a decorated 2018 signing class which includes Emma Davis (Harrodsburg, Ky.), Sade’ Hudson (Memphis, Tenn.), Jalynn Landversicht (Nicholasville, Ky.) and Brittni Moore (Memphis, Tenn.) which each signed during the early signing period in November.
