WKU Women's Basketball Lands Commitment from Lexington Guard

WKU women’s basketball coach Michelle Clark-Heard is making more noise on the recruiting trail. The first-year coach has signed her first commitment for the Class of 2013. Paul Laurence Dunbar High School junior Kierra Muhammad says she’ll play her college ball at WKU.

The 5-foot-4 guard from Lexington gained statewide attention last March when she had several breakout performances at the Girl’s Sweet 16 state tournament at WKU’s E-A Diddle Arena.

Muhammad averaged over 10 points a game her junior season.

WKU hired Clark-Heard earlier this year after firing Mary Taylor Cowles. Clark-Heard came to WKU after serving as the top assistant coach to University of Louisville coach Jeff Walz.

During her time in Louisville, Clark-Heard--who played her college ball at WKU--earned a national reputation as an outstanding judge and recruiter of high school talent.
