Sounds like Coach Foley signed a good one
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Little Rock Head Women's Basketball Coach Joe Foley announced Wednesday that the program has signed Sali Kourouma to a National Letter of Intent.

Salimatou Kourouma (pronounced: Sal-e-Mah-tou Koo-too-mah), known as Sali, was the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference (NTJCAC) Newcomer of the Year last season, averaging 18.7 points and 10.3 rebounds at Grayson College. A first team all-conference selection, Kourouma registered five games where she scored 30 or more points and had 15 games where she recorded a double-double.

"Sali brings the ability to score the ball in a lot of different ways," Foley said of his newest signee. "She can post, she can step out and drive it, she can hit the spot up 3-pointer, she can score off put-backs and because, she is so physical in the paint, she gets to the line a lot. She plays with a lot of pop on both ends of the floor and we look forward to her contributing next year."

Kourouma led her team to a 19-4 record and shot 51.5 percent (154-for-299) from the field with an impressive 34.5 percent mark (10 of 29) from beyond the 3-point line. She redshirted the 2019-20 season at Grayson.

Originally from Kati, Mali, Kourouma prepped at Life Prep Academy in Wichita, Kansas.

more-

Some are labelling her as the best young player to come out of Africa and that is unsurprising considering her stunning performances in Zaragoza, when she led Mali to a big chunk of history at the FIBA U17 Women's World Championship. Not only did they win two games for the first time, they went further by winning a third contest and that was the most any African nation had managed on a global stage. The forward was outstanding throughout that campaign - as evidenced by a stellar 15.6 points and 10.6 boards per game. She then had another tournament double-double at the FIBA AfroBasket U18 Women last year as Mali rode to the title.
