Appalachian State University women’s basketball head coach Darcie Vincent announced the addition of Keke Cooper (Moore, S.C./Dorman) to the team’s 2012-13 recruiting class. The signing, which was

made official on Monday, brings the total number of incoming recruits to five for the Mountaineers, who just wrapped up a historic season during which they won a school record 27 games and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the WNIT.
Cooper will join LaShawna Gatewood (Twinsburg, Ohio/Twinsburg), Bria Huffman (Clover, S.C./Clover), Khadejah Wilkerson (Greensboro, N.C./Greensboro Day School) and Farrahn Wood (Lewsiville, N.C./Forsyth Country Day School) in the High Country next season.

6-2 • Center/Forward
Moore, S.C.
Dorman High School


Cooper joins the Mountaineers after an extremely successful high school career during which she earned all-region honors in her final two years. She played high school ball for former Appalachian State great Valorie Whiteside and averaged nine points and 11 rebounds per game. Cooper earned a spot on the South Carolina North all-star team last season ande earned offensive MVP honors as a junior at Dorman. She also played AAU basketball for the South Carolina 76ers and head coach Roger Wiley.
Vincent’s Comments: “We are extremely excited with the addition of Keke to our 2012-2013 team. The fifth member of our recruiting class will add depth to the low post position. Keke attacks the glass hard and her length will give us a defensive advantage at the post position. Additionally, Keke is a self-motivated, bright young lady - just the qualities we want for Appalachian State Women’s Basketball.”
