The Tulsa women's basketball team inked two players to national letters-of-intent, including Mady Cartwright and Elise Hill, as announced today by Head Coach Angie Nelp.

Cartwright, a 5-10 guard at Greenwood [Arkansas] High School, has helped her team post a 78-14 record in three years and claim two Arkansas Class 5A state titles. She has tallied over 1,000 career points, including a 17.5 points per game average as a junior, is a three-time all-conference and two-time all-state selection, and was named the 5A all-state tournament MVP as a junior. Cartwright is also a two-year letterwinner in softball.

"We are thrilled to for Mady to join our Tulsa basketball program," Nelp said. "Mady will add to the potency of our backcourt with her toughness, skill and basketball IQ. She embodies what Tulsa basketball stands for in her love for others and dedication to grow. She will elevate our culture and we can't wait to welcome her to the Tulsa family."

"Mady is a leader on and off the court for our team," GHS Head Coach Clay Reeves said. "She leads by example and will play any role needed to help our team be successful. She has great basketball knowledge and vision of what our opponent is doing and what we need to do. Mady is a great all-around player. She is a tall, long and athletic guard that loves to play the game and compete, and she finds a way to get the job done to help our team be successful."

"Mady is run through the wall player that every coach wants," AAU Coach Brian Morgan said. "She is a Swiss Army knife, someone that can and is willing to do whatever to help her team. She can play multiple positions, score at all three levels and defend multiple positions. Mady is one of the toughest kids I've ever coached, and she has a great personality and is a wonderful teammate!"

A 5-7 point guard from Tulsa's Holland Hall High School, Hill has helped HHHS post a 64-14 mark in three seasons. She has recorded 917 career points, including a 15.3 ppg average as a junior.

"We are so excited and fortunate that Elise is staying home to represent the city of Tulsa as well as its University," Nelp said. "She is a dynamic scorer at all levels who couples that with a high level of competitiveness. Elise will enhance our culture with her work ethic and desire to serve others."

"Elise has a strong passion for the game and is a well-rounded basketball player that can score at all three levels," HHHS Head Coach Crystal Lawson said. "With her natural leadership qualities and confidence, I expect her to make a positive impact on the TU program."

"Elise is an athletic, quick guard who can play on or off the ball," AAU Coach Brian Morgan said. "She can shoot the three and has a nice midrange, is a good defender and a tremendous young lady to be around with a great work ethic and a superb family."

Is the AAU coach the Brian Morgan that played locally here in Tulsa. Looks like he coached both of these.
