BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Baker University head women's basketball coach Ben Lister announces the signing of Ebony Parker out of Klein Forest High School in Houston, Texas.

Parker is in the middle of an outstanding senior year in which she is averaging 16 points four rebounds per game.

She has been a starter since her freshman year and has been named a Class 5A-District 13 First Team performer the past three prior seasons.

She has also been named her squads Offensive Player of the Year all three of those years and has scored over 1,000 points in her career.

Her team has made the playoffs all four years and they currently are 26-7 heading into the playoffs this season.

In her freshman year, she hit a game-winning three to advance her team to the second round of the playoffs and she was named MVP of the annual Taco Bell Tournament in 2011-2012.

She has chosen to join Baker over schools such as the University of Texas-San Antonio, Southeastern Louisiana University, Lamar University, and Texas A&M Corpus-Christi.

Outside of basketball, she is an outstanding student and is going to major in petroleum engineering.

She is the daughter of Tina Weaver and Clarence Smith and she has three siblings, Sha Weaver, Xavier Weaver, and Barbara Gray.

"We are really excited about Ebony," said Lister. "She has the chance to come in and compete right away to help this team. Ebony can play point guard or two-guard and her skill set is a tremendous fit for our offense. She handles the ball extremely well and has the ability and understanding of how to score from anywhere. She also shows tremendous poise for her age and has a great feel for the game. We look forward to her impact on our program over the next four years."
