The LSU women’s basketball program has received a national letter of intent from Alliyah Fareo to continue her career with the Lady Tigers as announced Monday by coach Nikki Caldwell.

Fareo, a 6-3 center/power forward from Sydney, Australia, with extensive club and international experience, will join LSU as a freshman for the 2014-15 season. She posted 7.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, and Australia secured a gold medal at the 2013 FIBA U19 Pacific Championships in December.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Alliyah into our LSU family,” Caldwell said. “She is a great addition to our interior game while bringing size and skill.”
