Latasha Lattimore and Shayeann Day-Wilson commit to Syracuse in a package deal.
Syracuse women’s basketball head coach Quentin Hillsman received some good news this week with the commitment of two of Canada’s best players who are both ranked in the ESPN 100 for the Class of 2021.
Lattimore is a 6-foot-4 F/C from Toronto who was rated as a five-star recruit and ranked as the No.11 overall prospect in the Class of 2021 according to ESPN. She averaged 17.5 points per game this year for Crestwood along with 9.5 rebounds.
Day-Wilson is a 5-foot-5 point guard also from Toronto who was rated as a four-star recruit and the No.73 overall prospect. She averaged 13.2 points per game along with a league leading 5.1 assists.
The two Canadians just won back-to-back OSBA (state) Championships for Crestwood where they played alongside UConn commit Aaliyah Edwards and NC State commit Rebecca Demeke in what is regarded as the best women’s team ever in Canadian high school basketball.
Day-Wilson explained the relationship she has with Lattimore and why it makes sense the two decided to come as a package deal when they both had offers from dozens of schools across the country.
She said, “We have a very tight relationship, through thick and thin. We have our disagreements here and there, but at the end of the day we know it’s all love. Latasha and I have been playing together for 5 years. Every team you are supposed to have a guard and a big, and they always have that chemistry. That’s what we have, Tasha is like my sister.”
