Tulsa Shock have announced another roster move following their first win of the season – they’ve waived center Lynetta Kizer and signed another center Courtney Paris.
“Courtney is an inside power player with a soft touch around the rim and ability to score in the paint,” Head Coach Gary Kloppenburg said. “She is an excellent rebounder at both ends of the floor and with hard work can develop into a solid inside presence for us.”
Paris had a decorated career at the University of Oklahoma where she established 20 NCAA Division I records including career rebounds (2,034) and career double-doubles (128). She finished her college career averaging 19.9 points, 14.8 rebounds and 3.3 blocks for the Sooners. Paris was a four-time Associated Press All-American, earned a record three consecutive Big 12 Player of the Year awards and was a four-time member of the Big 12 All-Defensive team.
