Tulsa, Oklahoma - University of Tulsa Head Basketball Coach Kathy McConnell-Miller announced today that Alyssa Shriver has transferred to Tulsa from Iowa State.

Shriver, a six-foot, three-inch forward, played in 35 games in her two seasons at Iowa State. She saw limited action both her freshman and sophomore seasons, playing behind Angie Welle who was a 1999-2000 all-Big 12 second-team performer.

This past year, she played in 14 contests as the Cyclones captured the Big 12 Conference Tournament Championship and advanced to the NCAA Midwest Region "Sweet Sixteen". Off the court, Shriver was a 1999 all-Big 12 Academic first-team selection and was a three-time member of the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll. Shriver will be required to sit out the 2000-2001 season before becoming eligible for the 2001-2002 campaign.

As a senior at Salina South (Kan.) High School, Shriver was named USA Today's Kansas Player of the Year and was a Street & Smith's honorable mention All-America selection. Shriver was a three-time all-state selection and was also named all-state her senior year by Topeka Capital Journal, Wichita Eagle, Associated Press and Kansas Sports Magazine. She led her team to three state tournaments, finishing second as a senior. Her squad tallied a 44-3 record during her final two seasons. Shriver completed her high school career as the state of Kansas' all-time career blocked shots leader (601).

Shriver averaged 15.9 points and 10.7 rebounds her senior season.

"Alyssa will bring maturity and leadership to our women's basketball program," McConnell-Miller said. "With her success in high school and at Iowa State, she will be able to come in right away and have an immediate impact. Alyssa should not only strengthen our inside game, but our style of play as well.

"The year layoff will be good for her to adjust to her new teammates, coaches, environment, and to build her upper-body strength in the weight room."
