Grier first from Albany Tech to D-I


The Albany Tech Lady Titans witnessed program history Wednesday.

Sophomore guard Toni Grier became the first Lady Titan to sign with a Division I program, inking with South Carolina State.

The 2014 All-Region 3rd-Teamer averaged 13.1 points per game this season.

Grier says she's looking forward to the prospects of playing at the highest level of college basketball. Though it will be a tough transition, she feels she's ready.

"I'm a hard worker. I'll put in the extra work I have to put in, and I'll work hard to get the position I want to play, the spot I want to be in, and the playing time I want to play," Grier says. "I'll go to ends for my team. I'm a team player."

Meanwhile, Grier's teammates Shanice Williams and Ashley Towns, won't be going very far.

The Lady Titan sophomores will each play for Robert Skinner and the Albany State Lady Rams.

The duo says ASU's recent success on the court made the choice easy.

"I'm just ready to come in and continue to help the school build, and just ready to win another championship," Williams says.

"Over the summer when I stay here, I'll work a little bit harder to get where I need to be," says Towns.
