CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The University of Virginia women’s basketball team has received a National Letter of Intent from Takisha Granberry during the early signing period, head coach Debbie Ryan announced on Wednesday.

Granberry, a 5-11 guard from West Charlotte, N.C., is rated No. 18 in the country by All-Star Girls Report and No. 22 by the Blue Star Index. A Street & Smith’s All-American, she was a member of the USA Youth Developmental Festival South Team and an Adidas Top 10 Camp Upperclass All-Star. Granberry was also the 2003 MECA 8 Conference Player of the Year and a two-time all-state honoree. She averaged 16.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 4.0 assists for West Charlotte High School.

“Takisha can do it all,” Ryan said. “She has the ability to slash, to shoot the three, and to score. What makes her unique is that she has great defensive skills. She’s exactly what we needed.”

Granberry joins Denesha Kenion and Sharnee Zoll who also signed with UVa last week.

The No. 24 Cavaliers open the 2003-04 campaign at home with UNC Greensboro on Friday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at University Hall.
