Congratulations to Myriama Smith Traore 6’2 F from Whitewater on her commitment to NCAA D1 Marquette University from the Big East Conference. M was one of the prized forward recruits in the 2017 class in the country and committed to MU over ACC and Big Ten programs. M played for the Lakers for 4 years.

Myriama is simply a dominating force on the defense on end of the floor able to guard 3-5 positions as good as anyone you will find. She is also the most dominate rebounder I have ever seen. She can take a game over without scoring a point which makes her a very special player. What is really scary is she has the ability to post up, drive to the rack, or knock down the 3 with the best of them, but she much prefers to distribute the ball and get teammates open. Tremendous get for Marquette and look forward to watching M try to lead her team to another state championship this season.
