Imani Tate, the who led Bishop Loughlin’s girls basketball team to a state championship last year, is headed to Albany.
The heavily recruited 5-foot-8 wing chose the reigning American East champions over UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Greensboro, Stony Brook and St. Bonaventure.
“They are coming off a [conference] win last year, going to the NCAA tournament,” Tate said. “I am going there and hoping to have playing time there too”
She had her best season at the Fort Greeen school last year when she helped lead Loughlin to the state Federation Class-A title. The consistent double-double threat had 16 points and 12 rebounds in the final against Curtis, and scored a game-high 23 points in a Catholic High School League Class-A city championship game win over Mary Louis.
And her coach said she earned the scholarship with her stellar play.
“The last two years she has been the most valuable player” coach Kasim Alston said.Reach reporter Joseph Staszewski at jstaszewsk
