Stallworth heading to Alaska

Tucson, AZ –Pima Community College women’s basketball standout Sydni Stallworth (Palo Verde HS) signed her national letter of intent on Thursday to the University of Alaska-Anchorage.

Stallworth, a 5-3 sophomore guard, is averaging 11.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in the first three games of the season.  

She was named first team NJCAA Division II All-American last season. She was selected ACCAC Division II Player of the Year and earned first team All-ACCAC/Region I honors. Stallworth participated in the NJCAA National All-Star game in Niceville, FL back in July and her jersey is displayed in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame museum in Knoxville, TN.

Stallworth averaged 16.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.2 steals as she played and started in all 36 games. She helped the Aztecs to a 28-8 record and a third place finish at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament while also being selected to the All-Tournament team.

“I really liked the chemistry and I felt comfortable,” Stallworth said about her visit. “I was kind of nervous (about signing right now) but my parents and coaches helped assure me, ‘why wait to make this decision.’”

The Aztecs will be part of the Tohono O’odham Community College Native American Classic from Nov. 17-19 at the West Campus gymnasium. The Aztecs play Gillette College next Thursday at 8:00 p.m. Stallworth signs letter of intent to University of Alaska-Anchorage
