The BYU women’s basketball program has picked up another big commitment.

Forward Ali’a Matavao, Nevada’s reigning Gatorade Player of the Year, has committed to first-year coach Amber Whiting

Matavao averaged 13.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.1 steals last season. 

“Ali’a was amazing this year,” said her coach, Foothill High’s Vyron Wallace. “Her all-around game is unmatched especially with her size and quickness.”

Matavao was an AAU teammate this summer of another recent Cougar commit, guard Amari Whiting.
