WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University women's basketball head coach Tory Wooley has added 6-0 forward Shauntaia "Taia" Williams from Central High School in Phenix City, Ala. for his 2017-18 squad.


"We are extremely excited about the addition of Taia who provides our program with size, strength and depth from the post position," commented Coach Wooley.  "She can rebound and finish at the rim and is eager to grow as a player both on and off the court.  It is always nice to bring in a great student-athlete from our own region.  Taia is coming from a thriving high school program at Central, and we are thrilled to see her development as a person while being a valuable part of our team."


With the support of her mother Shawn Williams, grandmother Ruby Cobb, and grandfathers Henry Cobb and Joe Williams, Shauntaia received the MVP award during the 2014-15 season, was named Most Improved Player in 2015-16, and won the Sixth Man Award in 2016-17.  Williams graduated from Central High School in May, 2017 and off the court attended St. Paul CME and spent time as a volunteer at United to Save Ourselves (USO), Parkwood Nursing Home, and was involved with Walk for Life to raise awareness for breast cancer.


When asked why Williams would like to continue her education and basketball playing career at Point University, she said, "I chose Point because from the beginning it felt like home to me.  I walked through the doors and they automatically knew my name.  They had a parking spot with my name on it and it felt so good to be loved by so many people and to be able to get closer to God all in one process."
