CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s basketball head coach Amaka Agugua-Hamilton announced today (April 24) that Latasha Lattimore (Toronto, Ontario) will join the program for the 2024-25 season.

“I am extremely excited to officially welcome ‘Tash’ into our family,” said Agugua-Hamilton.

“She fits seamlessly into our culture and style of play. Our fanbase will love her game, but also who she is as person even more. Tash is a high-character student-athlete with a dynamic personality. At 6-4, she is a versatile forward who can shoot, drive and score in the low post, while also being a dominant rebounder and shot blocker. Under our staff’s tutelage, I know her game will flourish.”

Lattimore spent the previous two seasons at Miami, where she shot 49 percent from the field. Prior to her two-year stint at Miami, Lattimore spent her freshman season at Texas, when the Longhorns advanced to the Elite Eight. As a true freshman at UT, Lattimore appeared in all 32 games and helped the Longhorns finish with 29 wins and capture the Big 12 championship.

In 2022, she played on Canada’s U23 Women’s National Team in the 2022 GLOBL JAM.

Lattimore was the No. 38 overall prospect in the signing class of 2021, according to espnW HoopGurlz. She was also the top prospect out of Canada. Lattimore attended Crestwood Prep (North York, Ontario), where she led the Lions to back-to-back OSBA championships.
