WBB: JUCO forward Alliance Ndiba commits to Cincinnati

Cincinnati received the commitment of 6-foot-3 forward Alliance Ndiba Tuesday afternoon.




A two-time NJCAA DI Women's Basketball All-American at Arizona Western College, Ndiba averaged a double-double with 14.0 points and 11.8 rebounds in 57 career games with the Lady Matadors. 

Head Coach Katrina Merriweather went in depth on what Ndiba brings to the 2024-25 roster:

"Alliance brings depth in our post spot with her athleticism, size and rebounding ability," said Merriweather. "We are excited to get her in the gym and continue her development from Arizona Western. She helps us on the floor but she is also a quality young lady with a bright personality. She comes with great work ethic and excitement for being a part of our Sisterhood."
