At 6'-2", junior Aja Ellison has all the right moves and quite a pedigree. Her father, Purvis Ellison, played in the NBA and led Louisville to the NCAA National Championship in 1986 and is currently the LCA boys’ coach. Aja has interest notably from Louisville, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Stanford.

Playing an aggressive schedule was paid off for the Lady Warriors, who won the National Association of Christian Athletes Division I National Championship in Dayton, TN. Jeune sisters, sophomore Aliyah (14 ppg) and junior Ashley (9.6 ppg) have already verballed to Rutgers while 6- 0 wing Bose Aiyalogbe signed with Albany. LCA lost twice to quality opponents—Rancocas Valley (NJ), a state champion, and Riverdale Baptist (MD), which won the NHSI in 2012, and are well rested for a serious run here. At the NACA tournament, LCA avenged the Riverdale Baptist loss and defeated ranked New Hope Christian (NC).
