Kyla Allison is transferring from Middle Tennessee to join Western Carolina’s women’s basketball program.

“My words will not provide the true excitement of how we feel with Kyla joining our Catamount women’s basketball family,” Coach Kiley Hill said. “I truly thank her and her family for taking a chance and believing in our vision of the program. Kyla will be a major catalyst with her maturity and humble leadership ability as we move forward to provide the best possible athletic and academic experience.”

Allison, a 6-0 guard from Orlando, Florida, was a redshirt sophomore for the Lady Raiders in the 2018-19 season playing in 23 games and starting four. She averaged 1.7 points and 1.3 rebounds.

She missed 25 games as a true sophomore due to a foot injury setting up her redshirt year last season. As a freshman, in 2016-17, Allison played in 29 games and started 12. She averaged 3.1 points and 1.4 rebounds.

Allison averaged 18 points, seven assists and seven rebounds as a senior at Wekiva High School. She led her team to three state championship appearances, winning the 8-A state championship in 2013, and capturing the 2014 7-A state title. She was a three-time all-state selection and was named MVP of the 2014 state championship game.
